A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 10/03/23
"Not just any Fleetwood Mac record, little secondhand news, first track when you put the needle down, when that little Rumors album was released, you heard this, you heard the great Lindsey Buckingham, who is 74 today. Mike, you've caught, you've caught the Mac a few times, have you not? Oh, sure, sure. Love Fleetwood Mac. What a sad, what a sad story because he's so, he's a genius. He's a total genius. And they fired him like four or five years ago. The chemistry was just terrible. He does solo tours now and does some, some Fleetwood Mac stuff, but I just hope he's just not... These stories, these stories about these guys all breaking up and fights and all that. The Eagles, of course, had an epic, epic battle. You know, who they fired, they fired, I guess, the, I mean, they had a big, the two of them, the two founders, I guess, of the Eagles. They broke up and then they came back and, you know, it's like, hey, life is short, you know? That's it. You know what it makes you think about? It makes you think about Aerosmith. Same five guys, 50 years. There you go. You got to get Steven Tyler well again because he like blasted a vocal cord. But anyway, speaking of people who've been together for a long time, here's my buddy. How are you doing? Well, I'm good. I'm just trying to make sense out of the, the rage that the establishment Republicans and the Rhinos and the squishes are exhibiting towards Matt Gaetz. Now, I, I think there's a lot of merit towards the frustration over what Gaetz is trying to do in, in ousting Kevin McCarthy personally. I think Kevin McCarthy has done a great job. I think he's, he's fine. You know, it's a tough conference. It's a tough coalition. You got to hold it together. McCarthy did a great job in helping to identify strong candidates in California and New York, in New York. And without those victories, Marc, we don't have, we don't have a Republican majority in the House. Now, we have a slim majority in the House, slim, four, four people. That's it. All right. So I want to present, and I get it, you know, this is probably giving the Democrats a lifeline. It's ceasing our momentum. This is probably not the most productive thing to happen right now to try to have this crisis over the Speaker of the House. But what the establishment types are saying in their rage, and man, are they mad. I mean, Marc, they're not agitated. They're not, they're livid. I mean, I, I heard this morning, I, I never knew Switzerland could be so angry. Man, for Switzerland, Switzerland's got the knives out in the show before yours. Geneva is on fire. Oh, my gosh, Switzerland is burning. This is a reference, of course, to the always even -handed, neutral, and presidential matters, et cetera, our buddy Hugh Hewitt, who has decided to take a couple of sides, take one side on this. Not so neutral on this issue, is he? I mean, it's just like full -blown, Gates is a clown, he's a fraud, he's a traitor, he's a this, he's a that. I saw a tweet last night that got me thinking, and this is, I think, a reasonable thing to have as part of this conversation. Has Kevin McCarthy fulfilled the promises he made in order to get elected speaker in the first place, or hasn't he? It's a reasonable thing to talk about. It was, you know, Gates and Lauren Boebert and Eli Crane and all these real, you know, sharp -elbowed Republicans got concessions from McCarthy in his bid to become speaker. Remember, I'm old enough to remember that wasn't so easy. That was not long ago. Exactly. And it wasn't that long ago. It wasn't that easy, right? Well, he promised they would pass 12 appropriations bills for a budget, in other words, fiscal responsibility in the budget. He'd give members at least 72 hours to read legislation. Now those are not, that's not onerous and that isn't crazy. So those two promises, well, both of those promises were broken this past weekend. And Gates is saying, you broke your promises and we're going to hold you accountable. Now, does he have a plan? It doesn't really sound like it to me. I don't know who you replace him with. Thank you. And it does hurt the Republican momentum we have. There are over 200 Republicans who are solidly in McCarthy's corner. But Mark, we expect some accountability. We do expect disruption. We do expect people who are warriors and fighting for what we believe in. So it just seems to me that to turn on Matt Gaetz all of a sudden and, P .S., insult the millions and millions of Americans who are rooting for him isn't very productive. Are they rooting for, first of all, your sound, sound logic throughout. Are they rooting for him in this particular tactic or they admiring the lofty standard that he has? And it may not even be all that lofty is like, hey, you made us promises to become speaker. How about keeping those promises? There's an old adage that it's possible for multiple things to be true at the same time. Here are the two things that are true at the same time. Kevin McCarthy has been a very successful, very impactful speaker and deserves a lot of conservative praise for the things he has been able to do. There's thing number one thing. Number two is he might have fudged on some of these things, seems to have fudged on some of these procedural things, and I don't say that to be dismissive of them. Some of these things that he promised the Gang of 10 or whatever they were that were that were holding him up. So in what form is this the only accountability? Is this the only way to call him out? Because all I would ask, and I'll give this back to you in the following way, is if Gaetz tactics are so great and if they are to be admired, what is the end game? What is the plan? Trump's have disruptions a plan, and it's a wonderful plan. Various other people who are disruptors, there's a place they're trying to get you to. Here's what I want to do that is specific. Here's the goal I'm trying to get to. What exactly is the Matt Gaetz end game? I don't know, and I don't know that he knows. I'm not sure he does. I would suggest, I would respectfully submit that the way to deal with these differences is behind closed doors, not to burn it all down. I mean, again, make no mistake. I don't agree with the Gaetz tactic right now. I don't want anybody to be lost on that, but I also strongly disagree with disparaging the spirit with which he's doing it. And again, savage millions and millions of Americans in the process. So listen, I guess Cal's out of the barn. He's called for the vote. The vote's going to come today or tomorrow if they oust McCarthy, which is possible because Democrats are quite capable of adding to this misery right now. Right now, Gaetz needs some Democrats. And if he gets Democrats to support him because they like to sit back and see this kind of dumpster fire, well, McCarthy's out, Mark. Is there an irony there in that Matt Gaetz needs Democrat help to oust a speaker whose worst sin is doing something with Democrat help? Yes. That's a great irony with a capital I. Great way to put it. It really is. And I heard a congressman, you know, a RINO New York congressman on Hewitt this morning and they are again, they are on fire. As you said, Geneva is burning. But this guy pointed out, well, I don't think any of the Democrats are going to want to be associated with this guy, Matt Gaetz. Don't be so sure. Strange bedfellows sometimes. Well, AOC of all people said this week, hey, we're not going to it's not up to us to bail the Republicans out of the mess they're in. Believe me, they're enjoying this. I do agree that this benefits the Democrats. I'm sorry for that. And I hate it. But I also don't like seeing, you know, somebody called a nihilist. I mean, nihilist. You know, it's like and he's anti -American and he's got his daddy's boy and daddy was the Florida. I mean, they're just attacking him personally. I mean, it's it's kind of wild. To see it. There are bigger fish to fry. I want to share with you. You mentioned earlier I was listening to you talk about the plight of the big cities. Horrible story out of Philadelphia. There was a young journalist, an LGBT journalist who was very prolific on X and social media mocking conservatives for being concerned about crime in big cities like his city of Philadelphia. And this guy was even mocking the idea of having a gun to defend yourself in your home. He was mocking and taunting Republicans for criticizing cities like Philadelphia. He loves this Jim Kenney, this sanctuary city mayor. Markie was shot and killed in his home this week. He was murdered seven times, seven bullets put in his body. And of course, the ghouls on social media are dancing on his grave and they're mocking him. Can't do that. But but you must understand that this is life or death, that things are happening in these cities. And I hate it. I hate it for his for obvious for him and for his family, his loved ones. And again, a well -known journalist in Philly, apparently in the LGBT community. But the bottom line is a day before he was murdered, he was literally, you know, poo pooing the idea that we got a crime problem in Philly, mocking the people who are trying to draw attention to the issue to make it better. And it's funny. So did you hear the two things when I was talking about the conversion of Dallas mayor Eric Johnson? He said, listen, we need Republican mayors in our big cities, so I'm going to become one. We also need to elect more of them. And that seems like a ridiculous long shot. How do you get a Republican elected in most of America's big cities? And I don't know the answer to that except to try. A lot of people don't even want to try. We have given up. We have ceded the cities to Democrats. Is that helpful? 70, 80 percent of Americans live in these big cities. Is that helpful to just give up or should we try to it's a marathon, not a sprint. It's an uphill steep climb to try to get some sensible Republican mayors who can save our cities. You spend so much time in New York. I grew up in the suburbs of D .C. I'm in Dallas and Fort Worth all the time. You're in Tampa all the time. Big cities are beautiful. There's no more beautiful city in America than San Francisco. It breaks my heart what happens out there. Should we try to save American cities or say, screw them, get buried under your own bad policies? I'm inclined to say you own it. You live with it. You've got to you inherited this. There's a great column by Douglas Murray of the New York Post called The Fall of Lululemon. How stores have surrendered to looters. He tells the story of how Lululemon fires employees who try to stop shoplifters from walking out with the high end material and merchandise from Lululemon. And a lot of stores are doing this. They're firing any of the employees. They're saying, let them go. Let them walk out. And guess what? When you when that happens, when you encourage it. I mean, it's not a sane society anymore. I mean, call us old fashioned. Law and order is an important thing. It's one thing that people want to steal, but for businesses not to mind being stolen from. Well, but I'm intrigued by the employees thing. And for those that don't know, Lululemon is high end athletic wear, mostly for for women, but not exclusively. And so there's some some an arm load is some serious cash if you're going out the front door. Thousands and thousands of dollars. What do we expect? I mean, if I'm an employee, I'd love to say, well, I'm not going to let this happen, blah, blah, blah. But sometimes these people might be armed. I mean, what these what these stores need is armed guards to prevent this, not employees trying to try and try to go vigilante. Two female Lululemon employees in Atlanta confronted three masked men who pillaged the store. All they did was call the police. Right. I mean, one of the systematically said, you know, what do we want them to do? What do we want? They did call them. They were fired. They were fired for for for OK. Pardon me. Confused host for for calling the police or for not doing more for calling the police. No, they did too much by calling the police. One of the fired employee told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, we are not supposed to get in the way. You're supposed to clear the path for whatever they're going to do. And then it's over. You scan a QR code. We're not supposed to call the police. We're not supposed to talk about it. And Douglas Murray says Lululemon isn't the only company in America that has taken this completely lax approach to its own stock. Well, guess what? Lululemon's on the verge of bankruptcy. They're going out of business. And Douglas Murray writes, you know what? I'm sorry. Count me as one who's not real sympathetic. We're in post consequences America. And this is how Congressman Henry Cuellar gets carjacked. Or it's not the specific because of this, then that because crime is going to happen. But we're going to get more of it in cities where people know they'll get away with it and know that punishment does not await them. And there is a choice that Americans get to make. Republicans are law and order. The Democrats are certainly not, no matter how mad Switzerland gets. Look at that. Look at that call back. Happy Tuesday. And the Mike Gallagher Show lies ahead.

A highlight from New England's Historic Loss & CJ Stroud Breaks Out
"Hello and welcome to the MMQB NFL podcast. I'm Conroe. That's my dog Ernie upstairs barking at the FedEx guy. Albert Breer's here and I'm going to start in New York because Albert I can't believe that we're still doing this Taylor Swift thing. And now the NFL is doing the Taylor Swift thing. Do you see that they are their subhead on their Twitter pages. The Chiefs are now 2 -0 as Swifties. I did not see that but I am more and more. It's fake. I think so too. I think on Friday like the radio show I did in Boston. They leave me at the like and these guys are really creative and they kind of like took me through their full like tinfoil hat like conspiracy theory. You know like you know what this actually really makes sense. Like because the NFL has forever chased the female demographic and they've struggled to get it. And they know that there's nothing more buzz worthy on that side of the aisle than Taylor Swift. And they were shameless enough to cut like I mean we've seen some of their shameless acts over the years to try and get the female audience. And this wouldn't even rank in like the top 10. You know what I mean like this would just be sort of par for the course that they would do something like this. So I really like I am officially on this Monday morning Connor especially after the 10 million shots that box last night. I'm all the way there. This is all fake. This is all like this is all contrived. This is it. Everyone wins situation. Taylor gets to promote her movie. What else is it? There's one other thing right is a new album coming out. I can't keep track of all of this. I have no idea. OK. So Taylor gets to promote that stuff with a different demographic. Right. Like football different demographics different than hers. The NFL gets to try to take a swing at the female audience. And then Travis Kelsey gets an enormous benefit from this. Travis Kelsey's following has exploded. Nine hundred thousand new followers. This is like an everyone wins situation. And it's all fake. A 14 point 14 whatever place jump in Jersey sales. Like we were taught in school to follow the money and it's right out in front of us. Like it's like you know we're not even it's not even like they're hiding it. And I think I'm only read some of this stuff sometimes, though, and like like over the last week, like actually clicking on some like people dot com links, you know, I've seen some stories she reads. And I always think that the page six type stuff, you know, and I always think it's funny when there's like an insider into somebody's relationship, like who would be the insider into your relationship? Connor, I, you know, when they when they when they when they put sources into your relation and then people's relationships. Yeah, the sources be I mean, it would be like my neighbor or like my mom or my wife's mom. It would be like, yeah, I think I think they're fighting, you know. Yeah. Yeah. I don't have a publicist. I always think that's great. Like is the sources into the like the insiders into the relationship? Like is that person like just coming over and hanging out on a Tuesday or something and that makes them an insider? So Brian Costello, who's awesome, Jets beat writer for the New York Post, and he tweeted the the bio for the NFL's Twitter page, which is the Chiefs two and O's Swifties. And he's totally right. This is the kind of stuff that fuels nutjob conspiracy theorists, not just the ones with the podcast. But the fans who watched that game last night and saw their saw the outcome derailed by an extraordinarily questionable call on Sauce Gardner. And listen, I'm not saying it's good, bad, right, wrong or indifferent. But if you're a Jets fan and you've already seen your entire season railroaded by the NFL's greed and desire to milk whatever they can out of this franchise and you had to do hard knocks. Every single game is on prime time. Your schedule is ridiculous, ridiculously front loaded and impossible at the beginning. You know, I don't know what else you could think right now other than your team is just being actively manipulated by by the league. And listen, I don't believe it. You know, Andy Benoit and I used to fight about the I used to get him going on the NFL's fake thing a while back. We had a lively discussion about that after Peyton Manning's second Super Bowl. But I don't believe it. I'm not one of those people. Well, you're not making them go away. I just noticed I just went to the NFL's Twitter page. It is now the header is three shots of tail left. And like if you look at the bio, I think this is a tailor. I think this is a tailor reference. We had the best day with you today. Maybe is that a reference? I think it has to be right to be clear. I'm not anti Taylor Swift. I think she's a fine musician. Yeah, I think she's a genius. Like, yeah, I think she's a legitimate genius and everything she touches turns to gold. And there's a reason for it. She's obviously incredible. Yeah, I just don't like I want you know what? I think I'm hot, too, because I'm coming off the I wrote about the way those are the lyrics to it. Those are those are lyrics from a Taylor Swift song titled The Best Day. Okay, I think I'm just a little hot coming off the Toy Story broadcast, too. Did you did you catch any of that? I was actually coaching third grade football during the Toy Story. Okay, good. Yeah, I threw that on and I was just like, what are they doing? And I get it. You're trying to get kids to watch football. But how about just allowing kids to watch football or to have kids play football and not to watch like a I mean, the technology was incredible. But it like it looked like a like a like Minecraft, you know, and like I just felt like I watch it with my son for a minute. And I was like, they're trying to just it's like cocoa melon. They're just trying to hypnotize them. So we we bang that thing fast. I mean, I just feel like that's like there are some people at the league office who don't have enough to do. And that's how things like that wind up coming to life. Like like fix, fix the problems. Like we're focused on Taylor Swift and the Toy Story broadcast, like like digital chains so that like chains don't break during the game. Grass fields like like like fix the actual problems with the games. My God. Anyway, twenty three twenty, the Chiefs beat the Jets. The Jets fall to one in three. The Chiefs are three and one. I think my takeaway from this game is the takeaway that everybody had, which was this was a feisty, very feisty Zach Wilson game. I think that Robert Sala, to me, win or lose, just earns so much credit because during the week he knew he was going to get demolished. And he said, you don't throw people away. You just don't throw people away. And I give him so much credit because honestly, this is job on the line stuff. And he stuck with Zach Wilson. He dug in. There was no sample size. And Zach played really well. I was very happy for them. And look, like I think that the biggest problem that Robert Sala had was like, can he continue to sell Zach Wilson to the locker room? Because the premise of that entire team, the construction of that team this year was we're going for it. Right. So there are guys in that locker room like Allen Lazard and Adrian Amos and Randall Cobb, guys that were like that are older vets that are there to chase the ring. And like guys like that aren't going to have patience. They don't care what this means for your franchise in 2025. They care about right now. And the younger guys in the roster are going to be worried about what's going to get them in a position to get paid. So it can be hard to sell a developing quarterback to a locker room. And I'll give Robert Sala credit for standing by Zach Wilson, because if he didn't do that, like it would have been impossible. It would have been impossible for Zach in that locker room. you And, know, it sort of made me think of something I said earlier in the day about how Josh Dobbs should get us to question everything about how we develop quarterbacks, how the NFL develops quarterbacks, how the NFL nurtures quarterbacks. Because, you know, you have this guy in Josh Dobbs who got what, six years to kind of learn away from the bright lights. And then because he was on different teams, because he had different experiences, because he was developed away from game action, because people invested in him, because he had a chance and people had patience with him. And, you know, every single movement of his wasn't, you know, litigated on a public level on a week to week basis. You know, he had a chance to kind of get better in the background. And now you have a guy who's so adaptable that he could be traded a week before the season and start and take maybe the worst roster in the league and have a competitive over the first month of the season. It really like to me, like looking at Josh Dobbs makes you question everything. And so if six years can do that for Josh Dobbs, why are we throwing guys out after two or three years? That's what I don't get about it. It's fair to make an assessment on a guy and say, like, he sucks now. But to say guys never going to be good, just ignore so much history. You know, like Alex Smith is a phenomenal example of it. Right. Like how many times was he given up on in San Francisco? Yeah. Like, oh, he can't play. But no one was looking at the fact that like he had five coordinators his first five years in the league. He had two head coaches. Everything was completely unstable around him. And then Jim Harbaugh gets there in 2011 says, no, I'm sticking with him. And he takes off and then he's in the league for another decade as a starter. You know, like it's just we have so many examples of the of why we shouldn't make definitive and declarative statements about young quarterbacks. And yet we do it over and over and over again. And like I do, I think like the intention of the Jets in the first place was we have to press the pause button with Zach Wilson. We may have wronged him by playing him too fast. Right. And by putting too much on him too early. And so the whole intention on bringing him back this year was to allow him the chance to do the Josh jobs and develop in the background for a year or two. And that got blown up. But just because that plan got blown up like that's not Zach Wilson's fault. That plan got blown up. It's not anybody's fault. So now you're going to just completely throw the kid out. Why? Because Aaron Rodgers got hurt. There's a lot of like really faulty logic that goes into the way that he's been talked about over the last couple of weeks, I think. I agree. I'm not just saying this because I wrote about it, but to not even, you know, I think we're in such a easy Twitter dunk society that when Zach Wilson and Nathaniel Hackett get paired up, everyone's just like, oh, this is going to be terrible. And without looking at any of the history of any of these guys. The AFC championship came with Blake, Blake Bortles. He got Ryan Nassib drafted out of Syracuse. I went to Syracuse. Do you know who was the quarter? The last quarterback drafted before Ryan Nassib, Donovan McNabb, Donovan McNabb. I was going to say I was going to say Troy Nunes. Like I think drafted as a quarterback. I think there was a couple of quarterbacks that turned into tight ends, but in literally broke all the school records with this guy. And then he got Kyle Wharton, I believe, to the doorstep of the playoffs. Yeah. Two MVPs with Aaron Rodgers after he was lost in the woods for a little while. The guy's good at what he does, you know, and we're seeing in Denver now, who knows? Make your own judgments about what happened there. But I think that this thing could work like, OK, yeah. The Jets are one in three, but their schedule softens up a little bit. They played a lot of their best defenses up front. You know, Zach Wilson is going to look bad against the Cowboys, but how many other people are going to look really bad against the Cowboys? Right. And now in the next few games, like they have the Broncos coming up. I mean, Zach Wilson could could legitimately put up 50 points against that team. The Eagles, who are really good defense giants, Jets, Giants before Halloween, which if he can handle the pressure. I think that's coming off a buy, too. So it's coming off a buy. You know what Wink Martindale is going to do. He does it well, but you know what he's going to do. And then the Chargers November six, the Raiders November 12th. You don't play a really good team. You play the Eagles in the bills in the next month and a half. Otherwise, you're good. Well, we're kind of like that's like and that was the whole logic behind this. And I think we talked about this last week. To me, the problem with going away from Zach Wilson, like in the whole in the first place, was a there's no better option out there right now. Right. And B, once you go away from him, you can't go back again. You know, so I think so. I think so. I knew that like it was if we bench him in consecutive years, we can't sell him to the locker room again.
A highlight from SEC GARY GENSLER DELAYS BLACKROCK BITCOIN ETF, ETH FUTURES ETF APPROVED, RIPPLE FORTRESS, PAYPAL CRYPTO PATENTS
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well, folks, I want to start off with big news from the SEC. They have delayed a bunch of Bitcoin spot ETF applications, and the applications includes BlackRock's, Bitwise and some others. So not denials, but delays. So corrupt scumbag regulator Gary Gensler continues his clown show. We know he has approved futures ETFs, and in fact, we got news that Valkyrie got their approval for an Ethereum futures ETF. So why is he approving these futures ETFs without hesitation? Because, folks, they can be used to manipulate the market and drive the price down, right? It allows for folks to short the market. And that's why a Bitcoin futures ETF was approved, multiple Bitcoin futures ETF were approved over the years. And yet the SEC kept denying spot ETF approvals. And we know in the Grayscale lawsuit, the three judges said the SEC was arbitrary and Bitcoin spot ETF. So we have to keep putting the pressure. Again, we have a delay here and I think we can expect more delays, right? Until Gary starts feeling the pressure and we saw members of Congress send letters to Gary asking him to approve the Bitcoin spot ETF and highlighting the Grayscale lawsuit. So I think eventually the pressure will be on him where he's going to have to do this. And in one way, in one way, this is a good thing that it's not getting approved now, because in my opinion, I believe the Fed is going to continue to raise rates till the end of the year. And they're going to pause officially in Q1 of 2024, where I believe they're going to start quantitative easing next year. So global liquidity will come back. Right now we are in a tightening cycle, rates are up, inflation is still an issue. So the markets are not really primed for a lot of capital to come in. That doesn't mean that the approval can happen now. But in my opinion, the approval news will help drive the price up and eventually as these products are fully launched by BlackRock and others, a lot of capital will start flowing through them. So in a way it's a good thing, but still on principle, it just shows Gary Gensler is a scumbag regulator. So once again, Valkyrie got their futures ETF approved by the SEC, so expect more volatility around Ethereum. Now, speaking of Bitcoin, a luxury car maker, Bugatti, and that's a very expensive luxury car maker, Bugatti cars, many of them are like a million dollars and over, officially launches Bitcoin ordinals collection. So really cool that big brands are adopting crypto in different ways, whether it be tokenization, NFTs, and much more. The issue is the Bitcoin blockchain cannot handle these things. It more adds congestion to the network, which increases time of transactions as well as costs. So it's not made for that. And I know there are folks who say, oh, you know, this is a good thing, but I don't think it's a good thing for Bitcoin. I think there are other blockchains out there that can handle these things and not have ridiculous costs and fees. So but I think overall, this is good for the market. Now Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, tweeted out the following today, a few weeks ago, we signed a letter of intent to acquire Fortress Trust. We've since made the decision not to move forward with an outright acquisition. The Ripple will remain as an investor in Fortress. The Fortress team is incredibly talented and has built products solving real customer problems. While this outcome is different from what was originally planned, we'll continue to support them and hope to work together in the future. So obviously, we don't know the details as to why they're pulling out here, but they will remain an investor. So just an update on that, folks. Now a quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. Uphold is a great platform that I've been using since 2018, so I can certainly vouch for this platform. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus crypto currencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and equities on this platform. If you'd like to learn more, please visit the link in the description. Now we have big news around Coinbase. They tweeted out today, the expansion continues. Thrilled to announce that Coinbase International Exchange has secured regulatory approval from the Bermuda Monetary Authority to enable perpetual futures for non -U .S. retail customers. You may have seen the phase two of our go -broad, go -deep strategy for international expansion. Providing greater access to go -broad products, including derivatives, is a crucial part of that strategy, all with the support of forward -looking regulators. Coinbase Advance will begin to offer perpetual futures trading in the coming weeks as access to regulated derivatives expands to more global customers. So really big win here for Coinbase, obviously it excludes U .S. users, but they're going to be able to offer futures trading and much more to many parts of the world. And if only the United States could get its act together and pass regulations and do the right things, you know, U .S. users could benefit from this. But you know, once again, we're dealing with clowns like Gary Gensler. Now PayPal patent apps signal an interest in Layer 2's NFTs. PayPal continues, folks, to just go aggressive in the crypto market. Obviously, recently they launched a stablecoin. We know back in 2021, they launched crypto trading for both PayPal and Venmo. They've been four patent applications, which were published since September 21, suggesting that PayPal is taking a close look at distributed ledger tech. So they're going all in, folks, and I don't blame them, right? You better innovate and adapt to the new disruptive technology, or you will be disrupted and be put out of business. Just ask the folks at Blockbuster what happened to them as Netflix and the internet and streaming and much more went and took their lunch. So really, really bullish. Let me give some details on these applications. The most recent application, published Thursday and originally filed in March of 2022, delves into the details of how validators or miners should be selected during the process of adding transactions to the blockchain. The document states that the company's disclosed techniques could advantageously allow steering of blockchain requests to a desired subsets of miners slash validators. Three other patent applications released on September 21 were also filed in March of 2022. One offered up supposedly new methods and systems to enable off -chain transactions through NFT marketplaces. Boy, imagine PayPal launching an NFT marketplace. Another mentions the concept of a so -called omniverse, which in this context suggests a product that deals in multiple metaverses. The third describes another conceptual online transaction processor. This processor's goal is to facilitate payments between users and merchants operating on different network layers, layer ones and layer twos in a more efficient manner. So essentially looking to build interoperability, that is going to be key. And notice users and merchants, right? So you may have users, let's say on the XRP ledger and merchants on the Polygon blockchain, how do they connect, right? And I'm just giving an example, obviously they mentioned layer one and layer twos here. So it could be like Ethereum and Polygon is a layer two scaling solution, but also there's going to have to be compatibility with different blockchains. So really great stuff here from PayPal and a sign of what's to come folks. This is a stuff that makes me very bullish. Now Circle, they're expanding USDC on the Polygon blockchain, and that's going to be launched on October 10th. So Circle continues to make smart moves here, pretty much getting USDC on all the top blockchains. And once again, there's going to be interoperability and much more. So the ecosystem continues to grow. Now folks, some of you may have seen this, the New York Post did an article saying the Winklevoss twins, Tyler and Cameron, secretly withdrew $280 million in assets before the crypto firm collapsed. This is according to sources, right? So they didn't provide any proof. Well, the folks at Gemini, they addressed this issue and gave some clarity that it's actually false. They said, we are disappointed that the New York Post has chosen to recklessly publish a completely misleading story about the Gemini earn program. Everything the post alleges in its story is the exact opposite. The $282 million that was withdrawn from the Genesis in August of 2022 was in fact earned users money. It was not Gemini's corporate funds, and it was not the personal funds of our founders, Cameron and Tyler, or their investment from Winklevoss Capital. So they clarified that, but kind of a hit piece here from the New York Post. Now folks, speaking of the Winklevoss twins, Mark Zuckerberg, and many of you know the history of Facebook with the Winklevoss twins and Mark Zuckerberg, well, Mark was interviewed on the Lex Friedman podcast, and they did it through the metaverse. People have been roasting Mark and his version of metaverse for years, they've lost billions of dollars. Look, I've even roasted him a little bit, right? Because their metaverse product was not great, but boy, have they made a huge leap. Guys, go check out the interview with Mark Zuckerberg on the Lex Friedman podcast. They did it through the metaverse using the Oculus, and the new feature is this lifelike representation of their faces and their upper body, essentially, and it is incredible, folks. It is incredible. You have to see this. And you may say, Tony, why are we talking about this? Well, folks, this metaverse set up with full immersion, right, will eventually include a lot of NFTs and blockchain and tokens. It's all part of the same technological adoption. You're going to see more tokenization, once again, everything running on the blockchain, and you're going to need the blockchain in the metaverse because it's going to be hard to plug in Web2 payment apps, right? It's going to be hard to go use PayPal in the metaverse versus using stable coins or different tokens to exchange value. So this is incredible. I'm really blown away by what Mark and the folks at Meta did here. And I'm not some big advocate of you must live in the metaverse. I believe the metaverse is going to be useful. I think with everything in life, you've got to have balance. Will I be participating in some metaverses? Yes. Will I be spending all my time in the metaverse? No. I will be out getting fresh air, touching grass, going out for walks and so forth. That is how I grew up. Obviously, we live in a digital world, but we have to balance it out. But future generations, if you're listening, some of you younger kids, somebody listening to this 10 years from now, please don't be fully immersed in the metaverse. Have a balance, spend some of your life outside of it. But folks, this is incredible. Go check it out. Finally, some more good news here. Our judge denies temporary release for Sam Bankman -Fried suggests he could face a very long sentence. That is music to my ears. I love it. This guy is a fraud, a liar, a criminal. He should go to jail along with Alex Mashinsky. And we have to make sure we do a good job of flagging these guys, man, because we don't need this kind of stuff in the crypto industry. We're trying to mature, have good infrastructure and avoid any type of corruption and criminal activity as best as possible. Obviously, it's hard to stop those things. They happen because it's part of human nature. Just look at Bernie Madoff. He was in the most regulated financial markets, yet he was scamming people out of millions, if not billions. I hope this guy goes to jail for a long time and he doesn't get off because we know his parents are connected politically and there's a whole bunch of stuff that's been happening there where money from FTX was funneled to his parents. So, you know, I hope they are all held accountable, folks, friendly reminder, my interview with Congressman Warren Davidson will be published tomorrow. So be sure to check that out. Make sure you got the subscribe button hit, hit the five star rating on the podcast platforms. And I'll talk to you all later. Bye bye.

On S .I. media with Jimmy trainer. All right, training me now. S .I. media podcast regular. This periodic visit from the New York Post. And the March and Iran podcast is Andrew Marchand. Andrew, how are you? I'm good. How you doing, Jimmy? I'm good. I just realized I didn't put my phone on do not disturb. So I'm going to do that as we speak. And I'm going to let you know that I had a reader last week for my mailbag column on S .I. com, send it an email and said, when is Marchand's next appearance? So here we go. You made someone happy. Thank you that person. You made someone happy by coming on today. Let's start with this. A lot of media news to get to. Have you heard anything from ESPN or do you have any intel about how they feel about the last two weeks? How the staggered Monday Night Football doubleheader has gone? Because I've gotten a lot of emails and tweets about it. I'm sure you have as well. Yeah, I haven't talked to anybody specifically about how they feel about it. I mean, it is an NFL decision. ESPN is not in control of how those games are scheduled. Maybe they have some say, but it's the NFL decision. Yeah, I don't like it. Actually, in our podcast with John, it was my who's down this week. And the reason I just feel like I kind of said this on our part, it's too it's like having two quarterbacks and you have none. Right. And now if you have Joe Montana and Steve Young, there are two awesome games. Maybe that'd be better. But I just find my attention split and I don't know. And even at like halftime, I wouldn't recommend you go to the other game. Like I get what they're trying to do there, but it's not the NCAA tournament. And usually it's in like the second quarter, third quarter. So I personally don't think it really works that well. Now, I think they want to avoid I'm not positive, but I think they want to avoid that 10 30 late window. We used to get the Monday night and you get the, you know, crazy crew, either Chris Berman or Golick and Greenberg, you know, some of those crews back in the day. They probably don't want that late night game where, you know, you're losing that East Coast audience if it gets too late. But I don't know. I don't think this necessarily works. See, I like it. And what are the tweet? What are the tweeters say? Most people seem to not like it. Yeah. And why do you like it? The more the merrier. Give me as much football as possible. If I can watch eight games at one o 'clock on Sunday and four or five games at four o 'clock on Sunday, I can handle two games on Monday night. So, you know, I have two TVs. I put one game on each TV and two is better than one for me. That's just how I feel. Yeah, I've been a little running around these last couple of Mondays when this happened. So I may be a little bit, you know, my opinion skewed a little bit by that. It hasn't just been like I'm just chilling and watching, been running around a little bit. So perhaps that's, you know, maybe I could be swayed. I will say, you know, I don't know. This is a whole separate discussion. I would love to know your take on this, but I always feel like it's a little tough sometimes to criticize people in this podcast when I also have to book this podcast. So I try to be careful. Yeah, I notice you're very soft. That's what you're trying to say. Sometimes. So I'm sure this guy will never come on again, but they gotta do better than Chris Fowler on the secondary game. Just not, it's just not working. Chris is not a great play -by -player. Right. He was a great host, studio host. Can I say one thing? Yeah. He's on tremendous tennis. Like I watch the U .S. Open every single day. I think he's great on tennis. It's football where it's just something feels off. Well, tennis is also slower. And like you look at people who do really well at the slower sports. Like, you know, Jim Nantz is better than Chris Fowler, but Nantz is really his best thing is golf. And I think he's an OK NFL play -by -player. And at the end of his college basketball run, he was definitely, I don't know, OK is probably, you know, he was OK there as well. And I think if you look at Fowler and his history, now he's been doing play -by -play for a while now. And he has gotten better. Like when he first started on the number one crew, I mean, if I were covering it then, that would not, I probably would not have been that kind. Because he has gotten better, but it's not really good enough. And he's the rare case, I think with Herb Street, that Herb Street makes him better. Usually it's the play -by -player who makes the analyst better. And yeah, I think you're right. And I also think, you know, in fairness to Fowler, you know, ESPN put that crew together. They replaced Levy there and they had a year or two under their belt together as a team. And, you know, not the full team, but him and Riddick, Levy and Riddick, and then Jadolowski. And I think they kind of don't, they underestimate chemistry. It takes time to build it up. And so I think that hurts. And he just, he's a college guy too. It's hard just to come into the NFL. I know he, you know, he's talked how hard his schedule is with the U .S. Open. And then, you know, doing a game a couple days later. And then doing a college. And so, you know, that's hard. And so, yeah, he's not a tremendous play -by -player. To me, this is just me, it felt like when ESPN gave him that gig, it was more about ESPN trying to impress the NFL. Like, look, we have our number one college game. Like you had said earlier, the secondary Monday night game for years was, you know, Golic and Greenberg and Chris Berman with a cast of character. Rich Ryan did it one year. I think this is ESPN trying to say to the NFL, because now they have a Super Bowl and they have this big contract. And, you know, they brought in Buck and Aikman. Like, we're serious, we're going to take our, regardless of what you think about Fowler, he's their lead college guy. So, I feel like they're like, oh, look at us, we're putting the lead when, you know, that. Yeah, I think they screwed up and I think they know they screwed up. I think that they ended up shifting who was in charge of the NFL. It was Stephanie Drewley. And they moved her off the NFL after, you know, I think that didn't help her cause in terms of staying on the NFL. I think they were satisfied with Levy. He was a good guy, which they value. After they brought in Joe Buck, he was very gracious. You know, Levy's a very good hockey guy, especially studio host. I thought he could have, you know, could have been the pregame show on Monday Night Football. He's in, again, not their, in my opinion, they had other people who are better play -by -players for football, but it was good. Like, so, yeah, I don't think it was to impress the NFL. They got Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. They got the Mannings. I mean, they spend, they're spending 50, 60 million dollars a year on their booths. Like, I don't think the second team booth is gonna, you know. If anything, I think it was, there was a thought before Buck and Aikman that Fallon and Herb Street might get the NFL. Might get Monday Night Football. Might get the potential Super Bowl. And then this is kind of a carrot since they didn't get it. But I'd argue, and I even talked to Chris Fowler about this. So, I don't know if this is the case. I just don't know if, I mean, Chris Fowler does the national championship. He does the biggest college game every week for Disney. I can't, like, I get it. Maybe he wanted to do NFL. But is this really gonna satisfy him because you're doing a second game, which generally aren't that great? I don't, I don't see that long -term, personally. And I think also, strategically, if I'm ESPN, I'm putting a young play -by -player. Now, Joe Buck, we both think it's great. Like, he and Ian Eagle are the best two play -by -players going right now. And, um, but, Joe Buck's contract's up in a couple of years. If I'm ESPN, and I, you know, I think they'll probably re -sign Joe Buck, and they should. That said, he makes a lot of money. And, you know, I would be saying, who can I develop? What young guy can I develop? So when I go into that negotiation, I really have somebody who's on the rise. And I can say, hey, look, you don't want this, you know, the 15 million a year? Then we'll go here, you know? But if you start demanding, I'm not saying this is going to happen, but, demanding even more and more money, I'd want an option. I don't think they've created an option. They've actually put somebody in that spot who they've already said they'd rather spend 15 million dollars on Joe Buck than have Chris Fowler as the lead play -by -player. So, I just think negotiation -wise, and strategically, in terms of saving money, it wasn't a great decision. Yeah. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth, either. They had Fowler, Greasy, and Riddick. Excuse me, excuse me. Levy, Riddick, Greasy. Now it's Fowler or Lofsky, Riddick. To me, that, and, Fowler's used to a two -person booth with Herb Street. They have Buck and Aikman, which is a two -person booth. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth. It's just, for football, it just, I don't get it, but, that's just my - It complicates, it over -complicates it. Yeah. And like you said, chemistry. I think it's much harder to develop a chemistry with three. I mean, you know, the local Mets situation is different with Gary Cohn, Ron Darl - Is it in baseball, is it football? What three men, can you name - I mean, I guess back in the old Monday Night Football days, there were three men booths that had - Yeah, Collinsworth and Aikman with Buck that one year. Yeah, one year it lasted, you know. So, I don't know. But, there's no more staggered double -headers. The next one is week 14, and both games will start at 8 -15. I think that's the one that's going to piss a lot of people off. But, that's a long way down the road. You got the two TVs. Yeah. I asked you if ESPN, how they feel about Monday Night Football. Anything you've heard about how they feel about their new partnership with Pat McAfee. I mean, it's early, but they're bullish on it. I mean, they've kind of handed the keys to the network to McAfee. I mean, you can't - it's kind of like Stephen A. now. You can't really turn on ESPN almost every day except basically Sunday without seeing Pat. And so, you know, I think initially the ratings weren't that good. I think they got a little better in terms of the TV ratings. I think that kind of makes some sense because if you think about it, he was a YouTube show. Yeah, he's got to play for TV. Yeah, and he's still a YouTube show. Well, it is a play for TV because they think that they had Max in there before. They think that the ratings will be high enough that they'll be able to charge more for the ad rates. I guarantee you the money they'll make off of McAfee on social media and YouTube will be 8 billion times more than the money they made off Max Kellerman on social media. Oh, 100%. No, you're right. No, you're right. There's no doubt about that. And look, they want to get, I will say this, like, does it work? I think a lot of times when companies make big moves, you know, big time moves, a lot of times they make those moves when the person's kind of towards the end, you know, they got McAfee on the rise. Like, you know, we, you know, you and I have been aware of McAfee for years now, but he's really like, you know, here, I don't think he's at the plateau, you know, where most people go up and then they plateau and then they go down. He's at, he's still, I think, going up and then maybe the plateau is on the horizon and you can plateau for 20, 25 years if you have the right attitude and personality and just have the right act. So that's where I think that makes a lot of sense as a bet because it's not, I'll hit one close to home, Rick Riley leaving ESPN. I mean, leaving SI for ESPN where, you know, Rick Riley is one of the great columnist ever, but at that point, you know, whatever, maybe it was the internet, I don't know exactly. It just didn't really work as well at ESPN as it did at SI. And so I just think they've done that and that's kind of, you know, teams do that in sports and I think sometimes networks do that. And so I feel like signing McAfee in his mid -30s is kind of like signing a baseball free agent who's in his mid -20s and I think that's what you want to do as opposed to getting a, signing a 35 -year -old and, you know, thinking they can still play, you know, like, I don't know, like a Josh Donaldson, maybe trading for someone like that, Jimmy. You see what I did there? I don't need reminders of the horrific Yankee season. I just did that on purpose. I don't need that. My head was going, who am I going to say? All right, yeah, Josh Donaldson, but it was a treat. Just a, yeah, you want me to say Brian Cashman should be fired. It's amazing too, they replay that. I didn't know this was going to be the situation going into it, but they replay the show as soon as it's over, I think, on ESPN 2 and then they replay it at night on maybe ESPN News or one of their, what you said about if you're going to put on one of the ESPNs at any point in the day, you're going to see Pat McAfee. Yeah. So that's good for him. Like I, you know, people feel like - But I also think, ESPN has to be, they have Aaron Rodgers on their air every week. It's a news making thing that's on their air every week. They've got Nick, he's got Nick Saban on his show every week. Yeah. That's a news making thing every week. I would think ESPN has to be, forget the numbers because the numbers, I think, will be there. It's still a new thing. You have, the ESPN audience is older, the McAfee audience is younger, it might take some, but I would think ESPN just on the brand and the cachet of that show has to be thrilled. I think so. I mean, but if you talk, like I have, again, I'll probably make some calls here in the near future, but so I haven't talked specifically with anybody about that. But generally speaking, when these things first start, everyone loves it. So then we'll see. Again, I'm not saying, I could see it either way. Like, you know, McAfee has not really stayed at any of these, throughout any of these contracts he's had. So that's something to watch. Maybe this one he does, but that hasn't been the case previously. So that is something. I think the fact that he's on game day has to help the relationship there a little bit with ESPN. Here's the thing about McAfee. If you're managing him, in my opinion, and it's like Casey Jones, the former coach of the Celtics, was known for just throwing out the ball and telling McHale, Parrish, and Bird to go play, Dennis Johnson. At least that's how I remember as a kid. That was his reputation. And I think McAfee is sort of like that. Just give him the ball, let him do his thing. He's not looking to, you know, for some strategy. Let's, you know, triangle offense. He's not looking for that. He's looking for, let me do my thing. I know what I'm doing. And the thing about McAfee is he's very smart. Like, I know he plays this, like, he's not smart thing. It works very hard. He works hard and he's very smart. He's very savvy. He acts as if, like, you know, maybe he's, you know, just a dumb jock. But he understands the media business very well. We need, we need to discuss the Kelsey Taylor Swift thing because I actually think it's a legitimate media story. If Fox is going to get these increase in their demographics of the female audience, the young people, the NFL has gone all in on this thing. I mean, they changed their Twitter header to, like, a Taylor Swift thing. They're putting out Travis Kelsey Swiftiest plays on their social media. He's gained, I guess, a ton of followers, the jersey sale. Let me start with this. How did you think Fox handled it on Sunday when she was in the stadium? Do you think they overdid it? Do you think the fact that they had an unwatchable game takes them off the hook? What was your take on the Chiefs -Bears on Sunday when she was there? I think the second part, and I wouldn't take them off the hook, but I think the second part, you have an unwatchable game that you had to switch most of the country out of because it was so non -competitive, that you have Taylor Swift there, it's a big deal. And, you know, there's a lot of Taylor Swift fans who are football fans, a lot of non -Taylor Swift fans who weren't watching that game, but it was a talking point, right? Like, I saw Taylor Swift in the concert this summer, but that was kind of - Look at you! Yeah, how do you like that? Look at you! You couldn't even get tickets. Big shot. Where'd you get tickets? My daughter's friend just won the lottery. No shenanigans. Oh, really? Tickets were $235 each, which is still a lot of money, but not, like, $1 ,000. And it was just kind of happenstance, how I ended up going. I was going to say, if your daughter's friend got tickets, how did you end up at the era's tour? I mean - Were you, like - It's just a long drive to get to the metal lands, didn't want them driving back. They're older, they can drive, but at, you know, one o 'clock in the morning from Taylor Swift, so - But you were in MetLife and watched the show. Yes. Friendship bracelets? Well, you want to know something funny? This is a good one. So, my daughter's friend said to me, do you want a - do you want a jewel? And I'm like, no, no, no, I'm okay. Thinking she's saying a jewel, like a jewel, smoke. But she was saying, like, to, like, get bedazzled, a little jewel, which I would have taken. So later, I was like, I told my daughter, I said, but your friend, she said she asked me if I wanted a jewel. She's like, no, no, she didn't say you wanted a jewel. She said, do you want a - a jewel to put some ju - you know. Right. I didn't have any bracelets, but I was into - I liked Taylor Swift. I wouldn't go again. I kind of felt bad being there, because there's people who give their left arm to be there. But it was - look, she is an unbelievable performer. I mean, it was - you could - first of all, I liked some of her songs. Secondly, the level of performance. It was just, you know, it was an A+. I mean, that - that - and that is something, even if you didn't like her music, you can appreciate it. And also, I appreciate it if I had to go to the bathroom. Easy pass right in there. No one. Right. No one's leaving their seat except for people like you who aren't in it. Yeah, and especially, yeah, and more skewed women.

"I wish Republican leaders would start doing a little bit of God's work. I mean, honest to goodness, I see this interview with Mitch McConnell. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has gently nudged his Republican counterparts in the House of Representatives to pump the brakes on chatter of impeaching President Biden. So says the New York Post. Listen to this. Mitch McConnell told the New York Times in an interview published yesterday, I said two years ago when we had not one but two impeachments that once we go down this path, it incentivizes the other side to do the same thing. Impeachment ought to be rare. This is not good for the country. You know what's not good for the country? Letting Democrats steamroll you. And of course Mitch was right. When you go down the path, it incentivizes the other side, but not if you're not going to do it. So in other words, the Democrats got away with it. So you let them impeach Trump twice, but let's not put America through that with Joe Biden. Let's let him get away with it. Let's let him and his family line their pockets with millions and millions of dollars from Romania and Ukraine and China. Yeah, we don't want to put the country through
A highlight from Capitol Chaos, China Connections, and Censorship
"And just boil it down to the fact that they deprive the American people of real information that was reported by the New York Post. They had no right to do that. They had no right to censor that. It was the Obama deep state officials and the FBI that pressured and not even pressured that made them basically not talk about deleted and simply by that control and by censoring any conversation about the Hunter Biden laptop, they in that instance influenced the election in a way that favored one candidate over the other. And people need to go to jail for that period. Welcome everybody to the financial guys podcast. Thanks again for downloading and listening. We do appreciate it. If you can hit the like button and share, we appreciate that as well. Mike and Glenn here of course got a lot to talk to you about today as there's a lot on the, I got, I think this morning we must've fired back and forth, like I don't know, like 50 different, there's so much in the news, a lot of national stuff. So, um, you know, it's, it's, I mean, it's unreal where we are with this country as far as, you know, so video emerges from J six of officer asking about identifiers for undercover cops. I mean, this is unreal that this stuff goes nowhere. That's what's so frustrating about it. Thousand people are still indicted and jail. Some of them are in jail for years. A lot of them are in jail for years. They're still going after people. This is the largest investigation and arrest bust of ever and U and U S history for, for mainly trespassing. Just, just not to defend anything. I'm not defending what happened on January 6th. We were actually recording our radio show at the time it was happening. So we were recording in and talking about it in real time. And talking about how horrible it was that they were breaking into the doing any damage. But the damage that they did was in the millions. And there was nobody killed on January six. Nobody. Well, I shouldn't say that. Ashley Babbitt was killed, I'm sorry. And another innocent, uh, uh, person was a protest that was killed. No police officers were killed that day. Um, now compare that with the 22 or more officers that were killed or people plus officers that were killed during the BLM riots, the Antifa riots, billions and billions in the B trillion dollars a trillion dollars worth of damage. Milwaukee, Baltimore, Chicago, Ferguson. I mean you name it, all these cities across the country. Couple that Glenn with us finding out now that these people, many of them escorted in and baited many of them baited. That's right. Hey, come on in, come on in by FBI agents. We have it on video. We have it on video. That's right. What is really amazing is this is the United States of America and nobody's figuring out who these people are. Nobody's going after them. It's just so frustrating. What's for the problem, Mike, is that you got Mitch McConnell in the Senate. He's half dead. I don't think I'm peaching. You don't think impeaching, I think he should be marched out of jail. I mean, are you serious? Yeah. The amount of evidence now is not good for the Biden is outrageous. Yeah. Outrageous. It's a mountain. It's a mountain. I mean, it's a mountain. I mean, not only do you have the bloody footprints going, I've been using that analogy. Like these are the bloody footprints going back to OJ's house. Yeah. You have now found a knife in his drawer. That's right. With his fingerprints on it. I don't, I don't know what else you would be in a video and a video of it and a video of the whole of that. I mean, it's just unbelievable. Did you see Mitch McConnell getting booed? Hilarious. They were chanting retire, retire, retire. He and you know, and again, just like Biden, I mean he's got, he's got problems. He's got, he's got some, probably the beginning stages of dementia. You can see it. I don't know where I am. You know, here's the deal. His net worth is 35 frigging million dollars, right? He makes a hundred grand a year. His net worth is $35 million. It does not take a Harvard mathematician to figure out that there's some kind of bullshit going on. It doesn't. You don't need to have an advanced degree, you know, from, from Yale to figure out that that math just doesn't, you know, what's amazing then is they've all figured out the most amazing investment system ever. And folks like, we've got people on our team that are, you know, 40 years of experience, CFAs on CNBC and they cannot on a weekly basis and we can't recreate the model that a, that these folks have figured out. What we haven't done yet is bring on any Chinese spies onto our team. That's the mistake that we're making. See, and that's where Mitch McConnell was married to a, I'm saying she's a spy, but she is Chinese and I have no idea what kind of connection she has back to her family. And I don't know. You can't take it. I don't know. But I gotta be honest, he seems to be awfully on the side of China Joe who we do know has received, you know, when Trump talks about this stuff, I was listening to a very smart pundit I was talking to, and he even missed the point on this. Hunter Biden went over to China. He got immediately and came back, got set up an investment advisory firm. This is our business. We know this. Immediately got an investment from the Chinese communist party for $3 billion. Right now he charges 1 % on that. That makes $3 million a year just by sucking off that $3 billion that the Chinese communist party invested in his firm. Not a re not a registered investment advisor, Glenn, no background in being a CFA or any of that. No, just like he didn't have any background as a oil executive or any experience running a business or any experience as a painter and experience in real estate or anything else. You and I have assembled one of the most dynamic teams, if not the most dynamic team in all of Western New York, right? Chartered financial analysts, certified financial planners, certified social security claiming strategist, certified college planning experts, certified estate planning experts, Dave Ramsey certified experts. The list goes on and on. We do not have any billion dollar accounts from China. Isn't that remarkable? No, that's remarkable. Some drug addicts got $3 billion, right? The difference is we have to follow the law. We have to do things like, you know, OFAC reports, which is the background checks that we have to do to check for terrorists and criminal time. You mean the one that Hunter comes up on time and time again? Those are the SARS report. Those are the suspicious activity reports. There's a website by the way. I haven't had a chance to even look at the website, Mike, but there is a website out there that has listed all of the SARS reports. I don't know. They're supposed to be non -public. I don't know how they got their hands on these, but I haven't looked at them. I don't intend to talk about them, but what I have heard about them, I will talk about them a little bit here. I'm not going to go on and look at them, research them and get into, it's just too much news coming fast and furious. But the latest regarding those SARS reports, I'm not sure if you heard this, Mike, but a number of those are the, the suspicion was sex trafficking. Did you know that? That was part of it now. So, so not only is it a prostitution, money laundering, you know, all kinds of suspicious activity, a good chunk of those 150 plus now, I think approaching 200 suspicious activity reports, were for, for, for sex trafficking. And it's just, it's just, I mean, maybe I should go look at them, look at them and pull them up and we'll pull out some, some specific ones and talk about them on the radio. Maybe that'd be a good show for a, we fill in for Bob Lonsbury on Monday. Maybe we could talk about some of that because maybe, maybe we should do a, more detail on it. I don't want to talk about it. So, because number one, you're not supposed to talk about SARS reports, but if they're public, they're public, but number two, again, there's, I think, you know, yes, that's hugely important information. Absolutely. Hunter needs to be going to be investigated. Absolutely. And probably should be in jail for sure. Right. He's done disgusting things, including with his own niece and his brother and his, on his deceased brother's widow. That needs to start by the way, with the FBI, which has corrupt us how, right. But I'm more concerned about the Biden, the big guy. I'm more concerned about, you know, should all be asked to investigate it. It's clear, it's clear that it leads right up to him. Right. Now we're, now we're finding out that, you know, some of these people have visited the white house 30 times, 35 times, right here, by the way, let's play this quick video. I don't, I haven't played this, but this is him getting booed. It's just worth, worth the, worth the listen.

I actually ate outdoors last night The state that is most adamant about climate change Doesn't seem to be experiencing it at least that much this year They are skiing apparently At Big Bear, is that correct? Have you heard about that? But they are till very recently it's amazing That's how much snow fell and how the temperatures have not melted it Professor fired for faking data This is from the New York Post Professor fired for faking data to prove lynching makes whites want longer sentences for blacks six studies retracted Florida State University Criminology professor Eric Stewart was fired for allegedly falsifying data in his research I won't understand something who caught him Florida State the university doesn't give a damn. Is it because of the Santas a Student out at him. Yeah, really Florida State University criminology professor Eric Stewart Was a guru of the claim that systematic no systemic racism infests America's police and American society Let Me just go off on a tangent here. I've been mentioning to you that I'm reading this 600 -page book on the Russian Civil War that followed the Russian Revolution the Bolshevik Revolution and What you see what of course I've known this my whole life, but it of course reading it you're reliving it if you substitute a for Bourgeoisie white You have almost an identical Replay of the Bolshevik Revolution taking place in the United States and I'll explain why this is important What the Communists or Bolsheviks as they were originally known in Russia did Was declare all land owners all property owners all bourgeoisie middle class They are all guilty Just as the left in the United States, which is a communist wannabe declares all whites racist There is no difference but morally or intellectually Between what the communists did in their language With their language and what the left does with its language in America all The they are the left is the opposite of Viktor Frankl's belief that there are only two races the decent and the indecent The left is not to divide the world Morally it divides it either by class or by race or by power and That's why the weak are always right and the strong are always wrong that is the reason the left is pro -palestinian because Israel is stronger and Because they identify it as white even though half the country is not white There That's why I concluded a number of years ago It is wrong to say the left's moral compass is broken and I mean this what I'm about to say Literally, there is no moral compass In order for one to have a moral compass one must want to ask the question What is right and what is wrong, but they don't they ask who is Saying something not is he right In order for a compass to work you need to be seeking direction geographic direction Where is north where a south where as east where as west if you ask that question the compass can help you If you ask what is right and what is wrong? Then a moral guideline can help you But if you do not ask the question if you don't care where north south east and west are Then you don't have a moral compass It's quite simple.

DOJ Tries To Imprison Devon Archer Before Congressional Testimony
"Witnessing something happening right now, in real time, right in front of our eyes, Here's the New York Post. The Justice Department was pushing for Devin Archer to report to prison just ahead of his hotly anticipated congressional testimony. On Saturday, federal prosecutors in Manhattan filed a letter requesting that a judge set a date for Archer to begin his one -year prison sentence in a fraud case completely unrelated to Hunter Biden's various scandals. This is like watching a crime documentary on Netflix, but it's real life. The Second Court of Appeals affirmed Devin Archer's 2018 conviction last Tuesday on two felony charges for his role in a conspiracy to defraud a Native American tribe. So Archer is, as we speak today, delivering closed -door testimony to the House Oversight Committee about Hunter Biden, and more importantly, about his father, Joe Biden. The DOJ, get this, quote in their letter, Saturday, he's testifying today, two days before he is to testify, the DOJ, quote, respectfully requests that the defendant be ordered to surrender at a date and time determined by the court to a facility designated by the Bureau of Prisons to commence his term of imprisonment. I mean, if that's not intimidation, what is?
Mark Levin Favors Special Counsel, Impeachment for Joe Biden
"The incredible amount of evidence that has been uncovered circumstantial or otherwise by these very committees who've been doing investigations and even before these committees were doing investigations the New York Post others. The Biden laptop alone is enough to warrant an impeachment inquiry. There's more information on that laptop than there was ever available when they went after Donald Trump in the first impeachment. that's why they covered it up that's why the press covered it up that's why the FBI covered it up that's why the social media platforms covered it up with the urging of the Biden people that's why they had 51 frauds, unpatriotic anti -American former spooks and others, 51 them signed of a letter saying this must be a Russian plant knowing it The Biden campaign did that under Blinken and Blinken was rewarded with a big, cushy job Secretary of State and yet we're told impeachment inquiry might lead to impeachment we've got to be careful about that So the brave men and women who came forward, FBI whistleblowers, the brave men who came forward, IRS whistleblowers, is it to knock? So we can just get some cool editorials and columns and what? We have a corrupt man in the Oval Office, he's bought and paid for by Communist the Chinese among others and he's conducted himself that
A highlight from Democrats Use Falsehoods To Call Republicans Racists
"Mike Gallagher. Tell Biden he's off his rocker. My wife is going through breast cancer as we speak. He's an ignorant son of a gun. And you know, that's the kind of cruelty that is inflicted upon a guy like him to pretend you cured cancer, to even say those words out loud. I said and remember when he said it years ago and I called him out then and we talked about it and I said, how dare he? I'm going to cure cancer. Now he's taking credit for curing cancer. And tell that to that guy who we're praying for and praying for his wife, whose wife is battling breast cancer as we speak. Any of us who have been down that road of being a caregiver, a spouse, a loved one, a son or daughter or parent should be enraged at Biden's audacity. It's sickening. It's sickening. Bill's in Sarasota, Florida. Bill, welcome to the show. How are you? Good, yourself? I'm well, thanks. I'm just so frustrated at the at the crap they're throwing at us. I totally agree. You call on the air, you said three choices. I'm going to choose C. And I believe that was the first time he said it because he's also said eight times and it becomes the truth. I think we just heard the first time and you hear it many more times so he can convince us that it's the truth. Repeat the lie often enough and it becomes reality for people. You're not going to want to miss a conversation that I'm looking forward to having in just a few minutes with an author and a columnist named Adam B. Coleman. He writes for The New York Post, Newsweek, Epoch Times, The Federalist. He's the founder of WrongSpeak Publishing. He wrote a piece, a column about Kamala Harris's ugly lies about the Florida curriculum that is perfection. It's the perfect response to when these people lie the way they do. And whether it's Biden lying about cancer or Kamala Harris lying about the Florida curriculum and Republicans and race and slavery over and over again. These people, whether it's the lie that says you're a wingnut conspiracy theorist, if you have questions about the 2020 election and you have suspicions that it wasn't legitimate.
A highlight from FULL INTERVIEW - Curtis Sliwa, Founder & CEO of Guardian Angels
"I gotta bring my buddy Curtis Sliwa in here, I guarantee he's got plenty to say about this because I've known Curtis for a long time, of course, years, years of friendship, founder of the Guardian Angels, host on 77WABC in New York City. And Curtis, it's been a long time my friend, good to catch up with you. Before we talk about the lunacy of the two billion dollars being handed out to failed teacher applicants, give me your reaction to this breaking story that President Trump, he says, is about to get indicted and arrested for a third time. Is this going to continue to show him soaring in the polls? Or is this the thing that's going to maybe take him out? Oh, no doubt, Mike, it'll make him the male version of Joan of Arc. They're putting him at the stake, they're trying to burn him and trying to isolate him. But as you know, amongst Trumpers, it just empowers him all the more. And you say, why now? Why the pileup? It started with Alvin Bragg, who won't even arrest and prosecute criminals. It started with that bogus case, the payoff supposedly for dollars for prostitution. And then it's just gotten it's accelerated more and more and more. And we know what it's meant to do. It's meant to put Trump on the sideline. Now, I happen to be one that doesn't want to relive the election in 2020 with Biden or Trump. But if the people want Donald Trump and if they want Joe Biden round two, then this is what they should be given. That's right. The people get to decide. And that's what they're trying to change. They're trying to take it out of the hands of the voters. And it is disgusting. Listen, I'm with you. I'm with whoever the people pick. I'm going to be a Republican supporting broadcaster. But at the end of the day, what we're witnessing to Donald Trump is disgraceful. And think I Americans, you ought to see the angry texts and calls we're getting. You're going to get them, too. And it's infuriating. Equally stunning is the news from New York City. Now, you were a mayoral candidate. You'd have been, by the way, a splendid mayor. It's why I contributed to your campaign. I love who you are and what you represent. I've often told my friends there's about five life stories, books, movies that can be made about the life of Curtis Sliwa, the founder of the Guardian Angels. So you know New York like the back of your hand. Can you please walk us through the funny farm, the insane asylum of New York giving almost $2 billion, making millionaires out of hundreds of people who happen to be black or Hispanic and took the teacher's exam and failed? Please, please shed some light on this crazy story. Well, it's hard for the course and why people continue to exit New York State and New York City in unprecedented numbers. It's the insanity of our elected officials, Governor Kathy Hochum, I call her Hochum, and Eric Adams. I call him the swagger man with no plan, mayor of the illegal aliens who just keeps encouraging illegals to come in. And we, the taxpayers of New York City, have to fund it. So now being dropped on us simultaneously is a lawsuit that none of us were aware of that's been going on since 1994 for about 20 years. You had a series of black and Hispanics who had failed the test to become a teacher in the public school system of New York. It's civil service. It doesn't look at your color. It looks at what was the mark that you got on your test. And they failed. And now all of a sudden, so many years later, rather than continue to fight the good fight and say not a nickel dime a penny, Corporation Council under Eric Adams, swagger man with no plan, has decided, hey, let's just pay it out. And you're going to have $1 .8 billion to be paid out to approximately 5 ,200 black and Hispanics who took the test and failed to qualify to become a New York City teacher. Now you need to know at that time, Mike, there were other black and Hispanics who took the test and passed. And by now they're tenured and they're right about at the point of retiring and going to Florida and enjoying their very generous pension system that they get from the public school system of New York City. So how is it some blacks and Hispanics were able to pass it and others were not, but the ones who couldn't are going to end up making windfall money that you couldn't make in Powerball or Lotto? I mean, this one guy they interviewed is going to get over $2 million. And he was shocked. And of course, he's ecstatic. And he bragged to the New York Post reporter how he failed the test a lot. So I guess failing a lot, the more you fail the test, Curtis, the more you make.
Disney CEO Bob Iger Doesn't Want "Any More Culture Wars”

A highlight from The No Interruptions Podcast - TikTok Ban Debate

This week's No Interruptions podcast is about TikTok, big news this week out of South Carolina. As you know, I used to host the Clemson football Tiger Tailgate show, so I know Clemson University quite well, and Clemson University banned TikTok from its internal servers. I keep wondering how this actually is going to look like. What does a TikTok ban look like? Brad Palumbo is editor -in -chief and co -founder of Based Politics, which I am loving. I'm enjoying it very, very much. Brad is a libertarian conservative journalist. You've probably seen his work on The Washington Examiner, The New York Post, Newsweek, maybe seen him on TV. Brad, it's great having you on the show. Daniel Greenfield, who's an investigative reporter and journalist at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, covering everything from the Left's war on America to terrorism abroad. He writes for front -page magazine frontpagemag .com, has his own blog as well. Daniel, thanks very much for joining us as well. Let's start with you. I'm struggling with understanding, pragmatically speaking, how a TikTok ban works, but I've read your work. I've read some of your background. Tell me a little bit about why you think we should ban TikTok here in America. The simple answer is that TikTok is a whole lot like Facebook and big tech companies, except it's much more abusive and it's run by the Chinese Communist Party. We know this from former executives with Bytedance, which is TikTok's parent company. We know that there's a unit called the committee within Bytedance. We know that even though TikTok executives repeatedly come to Congress and say that all the data stays in America, that it's monitored by American teams, that actually everything is seen in China. That's a quote. There's some backdoor access to user data in almost all of them. Furthermore, TikTok's people have the ability in China to monitor individual Americans, get their location, find out what they're doing. Your smartphone in general is eavesdropping device that is monitoring you all the time. With TikTok, your smartphone is a monitoring device that goes directly to China. And this is not just happening to adults who can make decisions. TikTok aggressively targets children and the results are destructive. First of all, it means that China has a direct pipeline to what your children are doing. And TikTok is even more destructive than ordinary social media. We've seen a number of American children actually die because of TikTok challenges that were pushed to them. Last year, there was a lawsuit in which an eight and nine -year -old girl died of self -strangulation after TikTok's algorithm pushed a blackout challenge for them in which they were encouraged to strangle themselves with belts per string and twist ties until they actually passed out and eventually died. This is something that China does not allow within its own borders. Bytedance's version of TikTok in China is closely regulated. It is not allowed to promote any kind of destructive behaviors. Within America, however, they can promote the most destructive behaviors possible, including those that have killed about five American children thus far. TikTok spies on Americans. It is a direct pipeline to the Chinese Communist Party and it is killing American children. The argument for banning it is pretty straightforward. All right, Brad Palumbo, Daniel makes some compelling arguments in favor of banning TikTok. I know you've certainly embraced the digital space. I've become a big fan of Based Politics. Everybody I've recommended on my show, based -politics .com. As somebody who really appreciates that space, you have argued against banning TikTok and you wrote a very powerful argument back in March at the Washington Examiner, all the reasons why the U .S. should not ban TikTok. Go ahead and why don't you respond to the arguments that Daniel laid out and explain why you disagree with the idea of a TikTok ban in the United States.
Recording: Biden, Poroshenko Fire Prosecutor for Investigating Hunter
"Gets fired. Now this is all on audio. Jim, queue up for me, cut six. Here's about 54 seconds of Joe Biden on the phone, active New York Post for this, by the way. Why is no one reporting this recording other than us and a few other outlets that go in and others? I have no idea, but here is a recording of a phone call between Joe Biden and Ukrainian president at the time Poroshenko, where Poroshenko clearly says to him, he's a little hard to understand with his accent, I had to this fire prosecutor, even though he did nothing wrong. And Joe Biden tells him in the beginning, I'll be prepared to give you this honey and go over and give a speech if you'll just get rid of this prosecutor basically looking into my son. Here, you can listen to yourself. Here it is right here. Check this out. Tell me that there is a new government and a new prosecutor general. I am prepared to do a public signing of witness the for the billion dollars. Despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges, we don't have any information about doing something wrong. I especially ask him, no because day before Easter, I especially ask him to resign. Congratulations on installing the new prosecutor general. It's going to be critical for him to work quickly to repair the damage that Shokin did. I'm a man of my word. Now that the new prosecutor general is in place, we're ready to move forward in signing that new one billion dollar loan guarantee. So you see how the goon hack media works. There is no evidence whatsoever of a Russian collusion thing. None. Multiple investigations, millions of man hours and dollars spent trying to find by media, law enforcement, lefty goons,
Dr. Gal Luft Exposes Biden Family's China Connection
"There have been some incredible allegations put forward by Dr. Gal Luft, and the person who broke the story who knows it very, very well is Miranda Devine from the New York Post, and she joins us now. Miranda, thank you for taking the time. Admittedly, some of these allegations are hard to track and pinpoint, so I'm just going to give you the opportunity to walk us through how you came in contact with the source. What is the allegation? Miranda Devine. Thanks, Charlie. Well, Gal Luft is an Israeli professor. He was a fixture in the think tank circles in Washington, D .C. for about a decade, and he did business with the same Chinese characters who were paying the Bidens millions of dollars. Gal Luft's think tank had people like the former CIA director James Woolsey, former NSA director Robert McFarlane as senior advisors. He was interviewed on NPR and CBS and so on. He was a legitimate figure. People I've talked to in Washington, D .C. said that he was credible, and so what happened? He gets arrested in February in Cyprus on gun running charges. First I'd ever heard of him. He puts out a tweet, and he says these charges are completely bogus. I've been set up because someone is trying to protect Joe Biden, Jim Biden and Hunter Biden, Jim Biden being Joe Biden's younger brother. And so, of course, that piqued my interest. I got in contact with his lawyer, had an interview with his lawyer who told an intriguing tale, which was that that Gal Luft was about to testify or had been talking anyway to the House Oversight Committee, now run by Republicans. He was going to testify about bribery allegations to do with the Biden family and the Chinese.
"the new york post" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Control that these platforms, Amazon Apple, Facebook and Google have over the flow of information in America is really dangerous. Another example is a 100,000 laptop story. The New York Post has a great story. It's based on Hunter Biden's laptop. And Facebook and Twitter both take down the story two weeks before the election. In a very close election, there were 6 states that had very close elections, and that could have influenced. I'm not saying it did influence, but it could have influenced the outcome in the election of those 6 states. As we learn more about the contents of this laptop and the corruption that Hunter Biden was involved in with Joe Biden's knowledge and assistance, it could have very definitely been a turning point in that election. So these platforms have the ability to use great influence over what we see and they have used that ability to benefit the left and to hurt the right. Congressman Ken buck to that point, people are so worried, okay, well, what's going to happen because as we saw just in recent days, Nikki Haley has thrown her name in. Now the presidential season election season is getting underway as we're feeling Donald Trump, of course, already in the race. Everyone's wondering about Joe Biden. But how can we ensure that this doesn't happen again? Where everybody at least gets all the information and then the American public can decide what they want, who they want to vote for with all the full information, can we guarantee that this won't happen again? Are they under the microscope so much that they're changing? So in the last Congress, we passed 6 bills in the judiciary committee that would have given Americans choice. We want to see competition. It's all right. It's a New York Times criticized as a Republican because The Wall Street Journal or the New York Post or other publications can print the other side of the story. It's all right if a cable news channel criticizes a Republican because we have more conservative cable news channels also. We don't have choice when it comes to these online news sources. And so what we really want is competition, these bills would have given us competition in the marketplace. Nancy Pelosi held them up and Chuck Schumer held them up and what we need is to start getting these bills through Congress. Absolutely. Now is Elon Musk, a savior for conservatives or is it too early to make that kind of a judgment? He's kicking people off of Twitter. And what we want to see is more speech. It might be correct. It might be incorrect. It might be left, it might be right. But we want to see more speech. He has his own reasons for kicking people off, but what he is certainly done is exposed the last administration of the Twitter employees and how biased they were against the right. The long-term analysis or judgment on Elon Musk is that he is going to be not as critical of the right as his predecessors were. How do you think that Trump will use social media, just your thoughts? And the next election and also the Democrats too. President Obama was a genius at using big tech and these tech platforms and president Trump won up to he was clearly he understood how to use Twitter in particular to keep control of the narrative in the news cycle. And I fully expect that he will continue to do that. He is provocative and is also thoughtful in ways that really touch the hearts of Americans when he talks about China when he talks about immigration. He's talking about issues that affect us and he puts it in our everyday lives. So I think that he will be he will continue to be seen widely on these platforms. Yes, I do too. And what else do you want people to know about the book crushed? Because it is getting a lot of headlines. What's the message that especially people listening at home can glean from it? Yes, I think that it's important I talk about the history of antitrust law in America in terms that I think everyone can understand and how our founders were opposed to monopolies and I sort of go through the monopolies of the industrial revolution and then how these monopolies are different and controlling the flow of information as opposed to controlling oil and gas and commodities and services. And then at the end of the book, I talk about how people can deal with these subjects and the best way is really to do your very best to boycott some of these platforms. And I give a lot of other good, helpful hints on what people can do to make sure they're not benefiting the platforms that are discriminating against conservatives. Bravo, this is really interesting. Congressman Ken buck, so great to have you here again in your book is called crushed big tech's war on free speech with such great information. Thanks for being here on the cats roundtable.

"It's highly addictive and destructive and we're seeing troubling data about the corrosive impact of constant social media use.

I'm Mark Lee field. This is a Bloomberg money minute. The great pandemic changed the American workplace, and it's impossible to change it back, at least all the way. Working remotely has simply been too big a hit. In 2019, we all knew how to work in the office and that worked okay. And then we learned how to work remotely. Prudential Financial vice chairman, rob falzon. It started pretty rough. But by the end of that period of time, not only to learn to do it, people learn to enjoy doing it. Folsom tells Bloomberg, the people working remotely are not just happier workers, they're better workers. Credentials lay this pulse survey of working Americans shows those allowed to work remotely at least some of the time are more productive and more loyal to their employers. That means bosses who surrender their pre-pandemic dreams and embrace permanent hybrid work can tap into the advantages that both remote and in person working, such as team building and mentoring, offer. Success at doing that is going to help to attract talent and retain it. And if you're not successful at doing it, you're going to lose talent. Andrew O'Day, Bloomberg radio. Now this Bloomberg sports update, the jets are officially out of the AFC playoff hunt because they got dusted in Seattle by the Seahawks on Sunday, 23 to 6 former jets quarterback Gino Smith completed his revenge tour with that win. He had wins over other teams that he had played for earlier this year. So a great season for Smith and unfortunately he ends the season for the Giants effectively by knocking them out of the AFC playoff picture. The jets play at Miami next weekend to end the season albeit with nothing to play for. The Giants they do have something to play for and they knocked off the colts 38 to ten. So they now just have the wrap up game next weekend in Philadelphia. A lot of things to be sorted out though in the AFC playoff race. Here's some teams that are still viable down the stretch. The packers route the Vikings on Sunday 41 17. The packers are on a roll. The win for Green Bay knocks out the commanders and the saints. It leaves the Lions Seahawks and packers all fighting for the final AFC wild card birth, the packers and Lions go head to head next weekend while Seattle will try to beat the LA rams. The Lions beat the bears 41 ten. The Buccaneers wrap up the AFC south by beating Carolina 30 to 24. On the ice it was the hurricanes beating the Devils in a shootout 5 to four rangers beat the Panthers in Florida final score 5 to three and the kraken take out the islanders in Seattle, final score four to one.

Professional video game competitions or eSports have fallen on hard times. Bloomberg reported Cecilia down a stasio, says funding his dwindled amid disappointing earnings. 4.5 billion was invested in eSports in 2018, but over the last couple of years, eSports organizations have had trouble becoming as profitable as many had hoped. eSports revenue is far lower than in traditional sports. Ticket prices are lower and fans spend far less on merchandise and digital goods. eSports fans, on average, spend just about $5 and 30 cents a year on their eSports fandom, which is tiny compared to sports fandom. The disappointing results have caused many eSports organizations to pull back. However, some money is still being made. 6 and 7 figures are going to top eSports players. Gaming publishers are also earning some amount of money through franchise fees. One eSports executive says publishers need to help create revenue opportunities for the eSports ecosystem, Larry kofsky, Bloomberg radio. Now this Bloomberg sports update, the jets played themselves completely out of the ASC playoff picture on Sunday with a rather unsettling road loss in Seattle, Mike white returned at quarterback, but he could not spark any tangible offense. The only points that the jets would get in Seattle were on Greg Sur lines two 44 yard field goals, Seattle wins comfortably 23 to 6. The Seahawks are still in the NFC playoff picture, but for the jets, it's basically season over. They go to Miami next weekend and close out this season. The Giants, they know they're in the postseason. They handle their business on Sunday with a 38 to ten win over the Indianapolis Colts, no doubt about it because the colts are not good and the Giants have bigger fish to fry. The Giants will get the eagles next weekend in Philadelphia before they move on to the playoffs. Teams that are still alive in the NFC playoff race include the packers they rip the Vikings 41 17. That leaves the lions the seahawks and Green Bay all competing for the final NFC wild card birth, the commanders and the saints are out as a result of the Green Bay win. Packers beat the Lions sorry beat the bears 41 to ten and it was Tom Brady in the Buccaneers winning the NFC south as they beat Carolina 30 to 24 NHL scores from Sunday the hurricanes beat the Devils in a shootout 5 to four. The rangers in Florida beat the Panthers 5 three and it's the islanders on the road losing in Seattle to the kraken four to one basketball Monday for the next they'll tip at 3 o'clock against the Phoenix Suns at MSG. That's your Bloomberg sports update. I'm Dan gotta ski. This is masters in business with Barry red holes on Bloomberg radio. I'm Barry rid holtz, you're listening to masters and business on Bloomberg radio, my special guest this week is Robert konigsberger. He is the managing partner chief investment officer and founder of gramercy fund management. He has decades of experience in emerging market and distressed opportunistic credit strategies, the firm has 61 employees and manages over $5 billion in assets, Robert Conan's burger, welcome to Bloomberg. Thank you very much. Let's talk a little bit about your background. You get an MBA in Wharton and then a master's in international studies in Latin America. You're graduate thesis was on the origins and implications of the Latin American debt crises. It seems like you were built to trade distressed EM debt built and lucky quite frankly. I actually go back to undergrad where I did political science and history of Latin America. And I was asked to do a similar thesis on to do a thesis. And my parents told me I had to find a job at the same time. And so I try to put the thesis and the job search together. And the only issue in Latin America, which was my major back in 86 87 was the Latin American debt crisis. So I did my study on that and I got fortunate enough to meet a gentleman who had been the finance minister of Peru. He'd been ahead of Wells Fargo international. He lent it. He borrowed it. He defaulted on it. And he had this great boutique out in California. So I feel really fortunate to have spent 35 years doing the same thing in emerging markets. And the gentleman I worked with was just a great professional. So late 80s, early 90s or a VP for an advisory firm that leads some sovereign debt restructurings and transactions in both South America and Central America tell us what that experience was like during that period. Emerging markets in the late 80s was very different than the emerging markets of 2022. I think it's fair to say it was a bit of the wild west. You know, go back, you know, the entire, it was the lost decade, right? The 1980s was the lost decade in Latin America. Mexico defaults in 82, virtually the entire regions in default by the end of the decade. So what it was like was putting humpty dumpty back together again and dealing with countries that had defaulted debt and taking them through what's now known as the Brady debt restructuring and having these bonds that nobody really understood come out of it. And that quite frankly was the beginning of the asset class. And I remember like, you know, even like we were doing, you'd have countries that were shared borders that couldn't talk to each other that one of the other and you could get in the middle and do some sort of debt swap or a buyback or what have you. And so on one of my fond memories was like Guatemala, I think it was 1989 and I didn't know what FX was. I didn't know what letters of credit were. And I had to go get a letter of credit. I had to go to Guatemala. I had to present it. And then we did a buyback, but we got paid in consoles, which was the local currency, and so my job for basically two weeks was to get up, go sell as much FX or buy as many dollars as I could and then go back to the hotel to sit by the pool. That's not a bad gig. No, it was great. So you go from that on to mother Meryl for three years where you traded distress DM, then your VP of Lehman Brothers, and this was late 90s, not the Lehman Brothers. We kind of are familiar with from the financial crisis. What was it like at those big shops, Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers doing distressed EM debt? Sure, I mean, first of all, they were great experiences because, you know, I started at a very small boutique boutique environment. And again, I'm political science and history major prior to graduate school, so to actually get experience in finance to lead the bank's efforts in investing in sovereign debt restructurings and to bring our clients along was a great experience. You know, I got to learn a lot about how markets function or not. And I got

I guess they keep having and at some point if they keep having it happen it. There's gotta be some level of insanity some disconnect some something i i'm talking about this border patrol story. It's a genuinely truly weird story. And i we need to break this down for you. A reporter with the el paso times has written a story made a suggestion will let me just read for you her freezing. This is martha scowl. Ski at the el paso times. The agent swung his whip menacingly charging his horse toward the men in the river. Who were trying to return to an encampment under the international bridge. Del rio after buying food and water in condado kunia mexico now. Secorski is the environmental watchdog reporter at the el paso times. She's written for a bunch of left wing publications from the guardian device.

You're out in the wild of the desert in your on horseback. You have split reins they allow you to really control the horace from one side or the other with one hand. Unlike when you're in the field doing the fancy fancy horse writing stuff. Sidesaddle no less. I'm sure that mr kelsey is probably familiar with these long range today. Not only do that. But they allow you to still hold onto the reins even as the horse's neck and head or down allowing the horse to eat or drink and the agent. You can see the video. He spins now. They've gone for from whip today to whip like cord. It is the reins of the horse and he spins it out. You never see actually hit you. Never see any of these agents hit anyone. They're spitting them. They're they're they're hitting the horse that are steering the horse. They're maneuvering to block the people but it has become a a massive scandal the head of homeland security had to come out and say that it's not true. This is from the new york post secretary. Marcus and border patrol. Chief row ortiz told reporters del rio texas. There's nothing obviously wrong with how the agents acted based on initial viewings of the images and footage may orcas explained. The agents used long reigns not whips to control their horses well.

"If there is a good reason that Trump needs to be impeached, make the case And, incidentally, the Senate is going to vote. And if that happens and I truly believe the Democrats are going to try to make it happen. Peter, you're on the Thank you, rabbi. Good good exchange here in the relief factor dot com Studios. Peter, you're next high. Don't Peter. I might let how are you good things, this whole segment, but I got a couple of things like the what the rabbi said about Trump's impeached again. It's my understanding yes to be convicted and thrown out in order not to be able to run again. Being impeached doesn't prevent him from running again in 2024 if the Democrats want to impeach him again. Go ahead because what they're going to do Mike is you're going to take people like me who love Trump voted for Trump, but I think the four years of the constant harassment Finally They're just cracked a little bit. He just couldn't take it. You wanted to lash out at Democrats. I think that in another impeachment is going to show the pure hatred of the left for this man, and they're talking about the peach. Garrity canceled the tournament at his golf club. But they're going to take people like me and put me back in his camp for 2024. If he runs to the primary. Well, I mean, you said something factually. The people like the rabbi and others who have who are In favor of impeachment have to have to consider your right if being impeached, which means the articles of impeachment are presented by the house. Then the Senate has to convict. Very unlikely that there's a conviction in the U. S. Senate considering the makeup of Republicans and Democrats. If he's not convicted, he could run anyway. So so that way that might I'm sorry. Go ahead. The next four years is going to be quite interesting, and I think it's going to be good for the country, Mike, I think what it's gonna show very clearly and very blatantly. It's going to show America How biased the media is against Republicans and all the other factions in Washington of bias because I don't think that that listen, that cow's been out that you're right. But that's and maybe what you're saying is, we're going to see it more dramatically than we've ever said There's nothing new about this T watch. Twitter. I mean, this. This is a fascinating thing, and I very a reasoned our editorial in the New York Post that let let me read some of this to you because it's It kind of puts this in perspective in an important way to be able to go from parlor becoming the number one App on the apple store and then be shut down. Um, Here's what The New York Post editorial board headline Big Tech is a cartel must be regulated Parlor. Um The social media site that aims to be the world's premier free speech platform searched the number one on Apple's APP store Friday as Twitter was banning President Trump indefinitely on Saturday. Apple and Google Band the site. Stopping new users from download in the end, the APP Apple says parlor is not doing enough to prevent threats of violence and illegal activity from running amok. And Amazon says the sights steady increase in this violent content violates our terms. This when parlor police at least some posts for calling for violence media, I reported the company remove posts from people who were calling for the execution of Mike Pence. For refusing to reject electoral college votes. The New York Post says. As we've noted, before, endless bile roams free on Twitter hate speech and worse that the company polices in no consistent way. Yet now other tech companies you're punishing parlor for failing in the same way. They're not applying a neutral rule their catering to the biases of their angry left leaning employees and wow. When people complain about the overwhelming share of their markets controlled by Facebook, Apple, Amazon and Google. The company's defenders insist that they compete in important ways, checking each other's power. This is looking more like a cab all support supporting each other. Um, perhaps big Tech, the editorial argues, thinks it can get away with all this. Now, the Democrats are going to control Washington, its executives may even think they need to stifle the right to fend off the left drive to dictate their behavior. This campaign is sure to feed everyone's concerns about the industry's power more. It's going to feed the very extremism that the censorship Dr supposedly aims to squelch. Rather than give America the peace it desperately needs. In the wake of the Capitol Hill assault. Big tech is tossing more fuel on the culture, war fires. Do you want to know what Twitter used as the official explanation for banning Trump from Twitter. This is from The Associated Press. Here's what Twitter said. He tweeted. The 75 million Great American Patriots, who voted for me, America first and make America great again. We'll have a giant voice long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form. Twitter claims that the use of the words American patriots To describe his supporters was interpreted as support for those committing violent acts at the Capitol. That's so laughable and so ridiculous. I'm embarrassed to even have to say that is a grown man. That's what Twitter is claiming the second tweet. They say that got him banned was that he said, I'm not attending the inauguration. All he said, was to all of those who have asked. I will not be going to the inauguration on January. 20th. Joe Biden was relieved, Joe Biden said. That's the only thing I've ever agreed with him on. The company said that tweet could serve as encouragement to those considering violent acts. Our determination is that those two tweets, Twitter said, are likely to inspire others to replicate the violent acts that took place on January 6th. Again. I can't even I'm embarrassed as a grown man to expect that you'll want you You would understand that or be able to use that rational as they all they should say is we hate Trump and conservative.
