A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.

A highlight from Why Tucker Carlson is a Bitcoiner | EP 825
"Yeah, welcome to Simply Bitcoin Live, we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin and religion of carbon making news called Traumatic Warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state before anyone makes fun of me in the chat. My mother -in -law got me these like blue light blocker glasses and I put them on last night and I felt like immediate relief and there's like different shades for it. So like these are like nighttime when the TV is there and then these are like right before you're gonna go to sleep but apparently these are for daytime. Anyways, they're badass, your eyes literally feel like they're relaxing and Opti of course is already trolling me and as well, I'm sure the chat is as well. So that's why I'm wearing these, maybe I'll continue wearing, they feel good, I'm on my computer all day, you know what, I don't care at this point. Anyways guys, today's gonna be a great, great show, orange tinted glasses, I didn't think about that. Today's gonna be a great show, we're gonna talk about the man, the myth, the legend, Tucker Carlson himself. His show last night that he released on Twitter, which I highly, highly recommend, actually has last time I checked, 320 million views, it beat the interview that he did with Donald Trump by like 100 million views. And once again, you have a politician, right, so Justin Trudeau is basically gaslighting saying like, you know, we have to put price controls on the grocery stores for raising the prices and all that stuff. But you have a politician who is literally identifying the problem, he's literally saying the government is the problem, the money printing is the problem, the government is the sole cause of these things. You have an Austrian economist who has a really good opportunity, really good shot at winning the presidency. And why I believe this video was so popular was the same reason as to why I believe that video Richmond, North of Richmond, went viral the way it did. People are feeling the pain, people are questioning the current system, and people are desperately seeking an alternative, which is why I believe this this hardcore libertarian Austrian economist has a really good shot at winning the presidency in Argentina, and the country is currently dealing with 100 % inflation, like, like, obviously, people are questioning it. And when you have a politician who's actually identifying the real cause of inflation, like people put two and two together, right? Javier Meli wouldn't be popular if he didn't strike a nerve. Richmond North of Richmond wouldn't have gone viral, right? Without any of the marketing and any of the push by the big studios, it was just basically a very small studio, it's a guy in his backyard with his dog, literally singing into a microphone. That would not have gone viral if it did not resonate with people, if people weren't feeling the pain that he was feeling, right? So this is, we are living through, in my opinion, the separation of money and state. All these roads, like even if Oliver Anthony, and even if, you know, Javier Meli, you know, and we know he likes Bitcoin, but you know, he wants to dollarize the country, all roads eventually lead to Bitcoin. Some people take the longer road, some people take the shorter road, but eventually it all leads to the inevitable conclusion that we have to separate money from state, because as long as the state has the privilege of being able to create money for free that everyone else has to work for, they will abuse that privilege to benefit themselves and benefit their friends at the expense of everyone else. And this is exactly what Bitcoin fixes. So this is really, really exciting times. Tucker, I don't think he would be at this point if it wasn't with the conversations that he had with Naeem Bukhale. Tucker would not be at this point if it wasn't, if he didn't have the conversations with Michael Saylor. Tucker would not be at this point if he didn't have the conversations with Max Keiser. And even though he was the most popular broadcaster on the legacy corporate media, his words were so dangerous that they had to fire the guy. And that makes sense. Look at all the other articles that are that's coming out of the legacy corporate media attacking Naeem Bukhale, attacking Javier Milli. Because I think they're exposing the fraud that is fiat money and the fraud that is the current established system anyways, it's going to be a great show before we get to it. I want to bring up my legendary co -hosts. We're both wearing glasses now, Opti. Opti was making, I was telling you hard, it's so much fun of me in the beginning, but I'm going to buy you a pair. You're going to be you're never going to take off anymore because I need the colorblind one. Your eyes are literally going to relax, bro. Like your eyes are literally like look at my eyes are like relaxing right now. They're like they're like, oh, like I don't even know what that means that your eyes feel relief. Like you don't even know what that means, bro. I have no idea. I've never looked as cool as you do right now with those glasses on. So I wouldn't know. I wouldn't know. But anything anyways to the opening monologue, which was great, very, very eloquent. And you had that politician rhetoric going right there. I really liked it. I really enjoyed it. One of the things that's pretty crazy is the fact that Tucker got so many views on this. What what I don't know what it is now, but last time I checked, it was like three twenty two, three hundred twenty two million. Like that's damn near the whole U .S. population. And we all know that Fox wasn't getting to every single person in the U .S. Obviously, it's global. But that reach that Tucker has on Twitter or X is just it's absolutely crazy. And this goes back to what we keep saying all the time of breaking the echo chamber and planting these ideas. And of course, Tucker doesn't have to go full Bitcoin maxi like we do on our show. But the fact he's having these conversations, I think does feel like a shift in the zeitgeist and people are waking up. And we've been kind of covering pinpoints and receipts about this constantly, whether it's the song, whether it's a post that I did yesterday in the culture, whether it's the tick tock videos, like people are feeling the pain and they're asking the questions. And so, you know, the soil is right for people to understand Bitcoin and for everyone to get on the Bitcoin standard. So it's just, wow, three hundred and thirty five million views now. OK, the Overton window is crazy, man, is shifting, man. People are sick and tired. People are sick and tired of the gaslighting. You had Opti's ex -girlfriend literally telling people that the cause of inflation is because workers are asking for more salary. Like it's absurd. Anyways, we do have a very special guest today. We have James from Stamp Seed and we're going to talk about the stamp seed before. Look, I got to show off my stamp seed hammer. Look at this thing. Nice. There you go. We got we got to we got to stamp seed hammers. So I'm very excited for the culture. We're going to talk about the stamp seed, why you should back up your Bitcoin wallet seed words on titanium, one of the strongest metals on planet Earth. Is that is that correct, James? That's correct. One hundred percent. Yeah, man. So we're going to we're going to we're going to. We're going to dive deep into all that. And I know a lot of you guys I know that you did you guys did a lot of the stress testing. I think it was Lop that did some of the stress testing comments. Migo, you remind me of Bono from YouTube. It's true, but I don't think Bono was wearing these. I think Bono was wearing these for stylistic reasons. I'm wearing these so that my eyes could relax from the from the evil blue light that's coming out of my screen anyways. So, yeah, you guys did a lot of stress testing on the stamp seed. That's correct, right? Yeah. We haven't had Lop stress tested yet. I think that's in the works right now. But we tested ourselves in house, various different sources of heat. One of them was a blowtorch, which is similar to Elon Musk, not a flamethrower, which is reaching temperatures triple the average house fire. This is one of the plates that we had stress tested. You can see it's been burnt to a crisp. That's why there's all that discoloration. We marred it up. So where you can see those hammer marks are hit. You can still see your letters. It might not come out too clear in the camera. Bent it, crushed it, you know, being that it's one solid piece and your letters are stamped deep into the metal when you bend it. Things aren't going to. There you go. Look at that. Look at that. Yeah. Things aren't going to fall apart. You know, there's no loose pieces, no loose tiles, you know, Scrabble pieces, I like to call them. Everything's in there. Yeah. Like this is like as if your house caught on fire that elephants stamped on the ruins afterwards. Yeah, right. This is what this looks like. Yeah. Or if you know your house, you know, you have two floors, maybe the first floor collapses during that fire. And, you know, you have some crushing issues on top of it. But chances are things like that hopefully aren't happening to most people. But if they do, you're secure. If they do, your money, your generational wealth is protected. Anyways, guys, let's jump into the numbers. I want to talk about Tucker. I want to talk about with about everything that's been happening. Let's check it out. The Bitcoin numbers, is your Bitcoin and cold storage really secure? Is your seed phrase really secure? Stamped seeds do it yourself kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade titanium plates instead of just writing them on paper. Don't store your generational wealth on paper. Paper is prone to water damage, fire damage. You want to put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet Earth titanium. Your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer and these letter stamps. And once your words are in, they aren't going anywhere. No risk of the plate breaking apart and pieces falling everywhere. Titanium stamp seeds will survive nearly triple the heat produced by a house fire. They're also crush proof, waterproof, non -corrosive and time proof. All things that paper is not allowing you to huddle your Bitcoin with peace of mind for the long haul. Stamp your seed on stamp seed. All right, guys, I literally made it super easy for you guys. You can scan the QR code on your screen. It'll take you directly to the stamp seed website and you can use promo code simply to get 15 percent off any of the stamp seed products. And I know you guys are doing custom back plates, too. I saw some that were really bad ass. Yeah. So do you have one, by the way, on hand? I do, actually.
Fresh update on "thirty five" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"With Axios politics reporter Erin Doherty who joined our Dimitri Service last night on WTLP following the debate. I think the big question for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was how much and if at all was he going to take aim at former president Trump, who is the overwhelming front runner in Republican the primary at this point. We've seen DeSantis in recent weeks sort of up his criticisms and attacks against former president Trump. That line that he made in his opening remarks really kind of showed that, you know, this debate he was to distinguish himself from his top rival at this point in the race. Beyond that, you know, there were Nikki Haley sparred with several of her rivals. She had some pretty intense arguments with Senator Tim Scott, Vivek Ramaswamy, and you know, she kind of really highlighted her strong debate skills on stage. At the end of the day, the big question is always kind of, you know, will these sort of strong moments from certain candidates change the dynamics of the race? And obviously it still remains to be seen. You asked or rather mentioned Nikki Haley sparring with various people. She seemed to get into it at one point with Vivek Ramaswamy over the safety of TikTok, the bike dance app that of course eventually leads back to the Chinese government. And it was quite a line there. I think she was riffing a little bit saying every time I hear you, Vivek Ramaswamy, I a feel little bit dumber, which I don't know if it came out exactly as she meant. But the point is, did she have as a good debate as she did in the first one back in August? Yeah, I think Nikki Haley had a strong performance tonight. Similarly in August, she sparred with Vivek Ramaswamy on certain policy issues. And I think that perhaps a sign that Nikki Haley did do well is in the minutes after the debate, former President Trump's campaign sent out an email sort of with talking points about Nikki Haley, and was she the only candidate that his campaign sent out an email kind of criticizing after the debate. And so it's, you it's know, obviously still really early, but it's possible that he is seeing Nikki Haley as a kind of emerging threat in this Republican primary. And so I think that, you know, like the first debate, she can, you know, distinguish herself from policy issue and, you know, took down and criticized some of her rivals on stage. That is Axios politics reporter Aaron Daugherty talking late last night with Dimitri Sotis following the second GOP debate. Double the T at .O .P. two thirty five. Good morning.

A highlight from Session 19 Evangelism
"The visitation of evangelism is God's method. It's taught and practiced in the Bible. Capital letter A. New Testament examples, Luke 8 .1. I think it will be up here. It came to pass afterward that he went throughout every city and village preaching and showing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God and the twelve were with him. Go to Luke 10 .1. Do you have that here? Go back to that one. I should have mentioned that. Luke 8 .1. After these things, the Lord appointed other seventy also and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whether he himself would come. Visitation evangelism requires that. I like the idea of two by two, frankly. I do like that. So they had thirty -five teams of two each going out, sent to every city and place for the Lord. Then we'll note Luke 10, the next two verses, two and three. Therefore the Lord Jesus said unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest. Go your ways, behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. So the message was, the harvest is great, I'm sending you out to reap the harvest, the laborers are few. You'll note the words, pray ye, comes before, go your ways. So we ought to pray and look to the Lord for that, for the blessing to come. How did they do it? Verse 19 says that the Lord said to them, Behold, I give unto you power. So he gives them the power to go. So there's pray first, go second, and God will give the power. We'll go to Acts, the fifth chapter, verses 40 and 42. To him they agreed, and when they had called the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple and in every house they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. So they went everywhere teaching and preaching. And he sent them forth and they did it in the temple and in every house they preached and taught Jesus Christ.
Fresh update on "thirty five" discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts
"I don't shy away from any topic. Number two, I'm neither a man fan nor a woman fan. I'm a good person fan. It seems that God in his infinite wisdom has made as many jerks of either sex. There's truly no monopoly. The only difference is that they express it somewhat differently when they're obnoxious. But there are wonderful people of both sexes too, just for the record. Truly wonderful. I have an intense topic for today. I'd like you to react to my theories. You could start calling in very quickly or very early in the hour. I believe that something exists that is a greater threat to a marriage than even an extramarital affair. And that is taking your spouse for granted. Or, if you will, in the same direction of thought, but slightly more extreme is having contempt for your spouse. So I'm going to ask my producer, is there a difference, or is there a serious difference, between taking someone for granted and having contempt for them? Yes, there's a huge difference. There is a huge difference. Yeah, we may not agree on that. I think taking your spouse for granted, and I think it's a continuum. It's hard for me to imagine that if you take your spouse for granted for enough time, it won't lead to some degree of contempt. But nevertheless, contempt clearly is the greatest danger to a marriage. Greater than an extramarital affair, i.e. adultery, and greater than just taking them for granted. But that's, as it were, obvious. So I'm trying to make a point that it may not be as obvious. And that is that just taking your spouse for granted is an almost guarantor. It's a guarantor of a miserable marriage. And whether it's a guarantor of divorce is dependent upon how much you're willing to endure a miserable marriage. It's worth noting that taking anyone in your life for granted is the kiss of death. In fact, taking anything good in your life for granted. That is truly part of human nature that must be fought. To be continually grateful for someone or something in your life. Because if not, it's the kiss of death to whatever it is. You can take your health for granted, as an example, and not keep working on your health. See, whatever you take, there are two downsides to taking something or someone for granted. One is that you therefore have no gratitude for having it or that person. And the other is that you won't nurture it. They're related, obviously. If you take your health for granted, you're not going to work on your health. Both are critical because gratitude is the mother of happiness and the mother of goodness. If you're grateful that you have your husband or your wife, that is really big. And it's something that most people have to work on. Just as you have to work on anything. Are you grateful for your house? There's an endless number of things that people start taking for granted. In effect, I could have done this subject on the happiness hour because I'm so big on gratitude. And the antidote to gratitude, or the toxin that destroys it, is taking something or someone for granted. The odds are you didn't take your spouse for granted in the beginning of the marriage. You might have even felt lucky that you have this person. Do you still feel lucky you have this person? That's a good question, isn't it? Do you still feel lucky you have this person as a spouse? That's a good one. I meet many, many, many, many couples. Well, not especially, I meet them largely at speeches. Before most speeches, I have what we call a VIP reception where I mingle with people and mostly take photos with them. And on many occasions, not all, I will be immediately charmed by the husband or the wife. And it's equal. It's not one sex more than the other. And I will say to the spouse, which is pretty forward of me to do so, you are one lucky man or you are one lucky woman. And the reaction is fascinating to me. So, for example, I will say to a man, you are one lucky man. And he will say, you know, something to the effect, boy, do I know it. And then she might chime in and it's happened often enough to have made an impression on me. She might chime in and say, well, not luckier than I am. And then I think they probably have a pretty good marriage. But the fact that she chimed in, that she volunteered, that she felt lucky to have him as a husband, was a big deal. Do you agree that taking the person for granted, no longer feeling, I'm lucky to have this person as my spouse, is more dangerous to a marriage than an affair? Or even without comparing it to an affair, do you have experience in either direction where that sense of I'm lucky has died? Which is another way of saying taking the person for granted. Were you taken for granted? Did you take your spouse for granted? I wonder how this, by the way, I wonder how this phrase for granted got established. Because granted does, for granted, now I understand. Like, you had it coming to you, so you're not appreciative of it. That's it. Now I get it. For granted. As if you are granted it. 1-8 Prager 776. When I grow up, I want to be obsessed with emotional safety and do workplace sensitivity training all day long. When I grow up, I want to climb the corporate ladder just by following the crowd. I want to be a conformist. I want to weaponize my pronouns. What are pronouns? It's time to grow up and get back to work. Introducing the number one woke-free job board in America. RedBalloon.Work. So it's male-female hour, and I'm going to take your calls. Taking your spouse for granted, I think, is more dangerous, ultimately, in many cases, than an affair. Affair is obviously painful. It could be devastating. Depends on its duration, its intensity. Was it purely physical? Was it emotional as well? Affair. Was it a one-night stand? Was it an affair? There are so many variations on that theme. But it's a big issue, and sometimes it just kills a marriage, although I don't think it should automatically kill a marriage. But over the course of time, taking someone for granted, and if it breeds contempt for, then it's the death knell. I live on Earth, and I understand that, to a certain extent, taking for granted is part of life. Although I think one should cultivate gratitude and a sense of, I'm lucky as much as possible. I don't take my health for granted. I have no reason to assume I'll be sick tomorrow, but that's true for everybody who gets sick tomorrow. They didn't assume it the day before. So, in the sense, I think that it's analogous. You shouldn't take your health for granted, you shouldn't take your spouse for granted. Okay, let's see here. Let's see what you have to say. Orlando, Florida, and Kara, hello. Hi, Dennis. I am ten and a half years older than my husband. He's thirty-five. I'm forty-five and a half. And even though there's that age gap, I definitely believe that the man is the leader of the home, but at the same time, I have no problem leading with the appreciation and adornment of my husband. And it's mutual. Somebody has to be the leader in that regard, and when I pay good attention and honor him in that regard, he reciprocates tenfold over. Men provide, they hunt, right? They're natural hunters and gatherers, and women were natural nurturers, so we have to appreciate our spouses. And as women, there's no problem being the leader in that because the men do appreciate it, and that's why we have a successful marriage, and he shows it back to me even greater than I show it to him. Hmm. Well, that's a beautiful statement. How long are you married? We got married when my husband was nineteen, so it was a little scandalous. You're saying it was scandalous? Well, I was… Yeah, no, I understand. Yeah, you were thirty. Yeah. Yeah, I was over thirty. He lied about his age to me. There was no reason to believe he wasn't a man for a very long time. Wait, wait, that's a great story. Did you know his real age when you married? When we married, I did. When we first met and started dating, I did not. Why did he say he was? How old did he say he was? He said he was twenty-eight, and as a woman of thirty and a half, I believed it wholeheartedly. You believed it because you wanted to believe it? No, I believed it because he acted like a man. Oh, okay. That's fair. He acted like a man. He treated me like a lady. That is hilarious. So, at what point did he tell you he's nineteen? I finally confronted him several months into dating because my instinct told me he was lying, and I was convinced, and my girlfriends were convinced, that he had a wife and kids. Because what else could it be, right? So, we came up with this whole imagination, as women do, apparently, sometimes, of this scenario. He texted me an article about him graduating school early, becoming an entrepreneur at a young age, and becoming successful, and my jaw just hit the floor. Oh my God. How long did you date? We dated. At that point, it was for several months when I found out, and I had to make a decision. I made it pretty quickly that I was going to stay. He said he wouldn't have let me leave anyway, so it was mutual. That's sweet. I take it you're both Christian? We are. We are. For those listening, the reason I made that assumption is because you spoke of him as the head of the household, and that's language that very few secular people would use. It's a beautiful thing to have a man the head of your household. I'm a very strong woman. I probably have more masculinity in me these days than most men, and I still have no problem with my husband leading my household. I think that's the way it should be, and it brings a natural balance to your family and your children. You should write a book on that. Thank you. Let's do it. You write the foreword. All right. That's a deal. 18 Prager 776. One minute. There is a joy in speaking to you. The amount I have learned from callers is not measurable. Okay. Prescott. Prescott. I was just there. Prescott, Arizona. Cindy. Hi. That's funny. Hi, Dennis. I am so grateful for you. I think I'm still married for 37 years because of you, because of finding you. That's a beautiful thing to say. Thank you. Of course. So my husband was unfaithful early in our marriage, and the thing that's gotten me, when I take him for granted or think about things I don't have with him versus what I do have, we get in trouble. I say we get in trouble. We just aren't very close, and it's not fair to him. Everybody makes mistakes and isn't perfect. He is the head of the household. He's a retired policeman. I have a lot of respect for him. But yes, I think that not being grateful and taking for granted is pretty much worse. All right. Yes. All right. Well, good. I want you to stay on. You live through that. We'll be back in a moment. Male, Female Hour. Dennis Prager Show. Every Wednesday, second hour. I think that taking your spouse for granted is often more dangerous than an affair to the continuation of the marriage. Affairs are problematic, to say the least. I just want to make that clear. And some truly mean the end. But we'll talk about that another time. I'm talking about taking your spouse for granted now. So back to Cindy in Prescott, Arizona. Okay, Cindy. Go ahead. Well, I think that we tend to think that we are better than or give more than the other person. We look at ourselves a little nicer, I think, than we do the other person. And when I realized in my life that I make mistakes and I had learned that sin basically is all viewed equally by God. I'm not sure if that's true, but that's kind of what I learned at a church. And when I learned that, that my sin is no worse or better than his, than I saw him in a different light. I still, I struggle with, you know, marriage is hard, but every time I'm reminded to look at how amazing he is and how lucky I am, it completely changes me. When you do that, what is it you think? How do you induce gratitude for having him in yourself? How does that get created, you mean? Yeah. I think about the alternative to not being with him as being alone. And I look around at other people's lives and, but often it'll be a show like yours or reading one of your books. Seriously, that will remind me of it. And I get lucky enough to be reminded to look at what I have. And usually I write it down and I try to just really connect with it and it's a good thing. Well, thank you on every level for your call, for your attribution of my work having been helpful. That means a lot to me. Okay, Lydia in Chicago. Hello. Hi, how are you today? Good, thank you. My experience was completely the opposite of Cindy's. I was never able to forgive because it was a continual bad behavior that was in general just highly, highly negative, affected me financially and emotionally, and I ended up divorcing him. Yeah, and I would not argue against that. And I, oh, you know what? I need to go. Okay, all right. No, I don't. Okay, go ahead. Okay. I think that's what she meant. Someone said I need to go. I need to go from the marriage. Look, neither in my life nor in my ideology do I believe that divorce is always wrong. In fact, I believe that sometimes not divorcing is wrong. Okay, some of you theologically do not accept that. I respect that completely. I'm not speaking theologically. I'm just speaking morally and with, I believe, common sense. The notion that no matter how you're treated, you should stay in a marriage, I don't think brings glory to God. And I don't think dignifies the human condition. I'm not a fan of unconditional love. No matter how you treat me, I will love you. Even God doesn't say that. So, I've talked about that on a number of occasions, and it's always worth bringing up, but it's another subject. I do believe that you can be maltreated enough to warrant a divorce. I don't see… It's almost like any mistake in life is forgivable except the mistake of the wrong spouse for those opposed to any divorce. That's the one mistake you must live with permanently. We'll be back. Hello, my friends. Dennis Prager here. I have said this on a number of occasions today, or this hour will verify it once again. I don't know whether America will survive the left-wing attack on its foundations and its governing values, but I will say that no one will ever be able to say that there wasn't a fight waged intellectually. The number of excellent articles, books, speeches in our time defending the founding principles of the country of liberty, in particular smaller government, which is the only way to protect liberty, it's amazing that people don't understand that. It is not possible to have both liberty and big government at the same time. It's like saying, oh, I want to be free, I want to be an independent person in my marriage, and I want an extremely controlling spouse. I'm not sure that they go together. So, why would you want a controlling state? So, there's a new book out, and I have the author in. It's rare that an author is in the studio because either they're on a tour or they actually live in the area, and the latter is really rare. I don't know why. We have a lot of people in California, but I don't know how many authors live here. The Origins of Woke can't get more precise than that. You would have thought that that title would already have been taken up. Yeah, you would have, but it's an ambitious book, so I don't know if everyone wants to sort of take that project down. Oh, that's exactly correct. It is ambitious. The author is Richard Hananiah. Now, it says here you're a research fellow at the University of Texas, president and founder of the Center for the Study of Partisanship and Ideology, and that you were at the Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia. Those were all previous affiliations. The University of Texas just ended, Columbia ended. You're on your own. I get it. You have a PhD in political science from UCLA.

A highlight from 1379: Bitcoin Will Reach $400,000 Next Halving Epoch
"In today's show, we're going to be discussing Bitcoin analysts eyeing a V -shape Bitcoin price bounce as the RSI hits a five -year low. I'm also going to be sharing with you a new Bitcoin bull cycle metric, which bought them before 70 % gains. We'll also be discussing mysterious Bitcoin wallet becomes the third largest Bitcoin hodler in under three months, now at over $3 billion. We'll also be discussing the trader who nailed the 2018 Bitcoin price floor predicts the bear market bottom for crypto. I'll be breaking down his outlook. We'll also be discussing Guggenheim predicts a $400 ,000 Bitcoin price prediction, as well as Blockware. They share that the Bitcoin price can reach $400 ,000 during the next halving epoch. I'll be breaking this down for you. We'll also be taking a look at the overall crypto market, all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good, crypto fam? This is first and foremost, a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my YouTube channel at Cryptonewsalerts .net. Again, that's Cryptonewsalerts .net. Welcome, everyone. Just joining us. This is podcast episode number thirteen hundred and seventy nine. I'm your host, JV. And today is August twenty second, twenty twenty three. And naturally, we have lots to cover. Unfortunately, the market is continuing on its downward spiral. We just broke that twenty six K resistance, as you can see here. And our market watch, we've got Bitcoin currently hovering just above twenty five thousand eight hundred dollars. We have Ether barely holding on to sixteen hundred. So the million dollar question becomes, how low will she go? And checking out CoinMarketCap .com, the crypto market cap barely holding on to that trillion dollar milestone, with about twenty eight billion in volume. In the past twenty four hours, we have the Bitcoin dominance at forty eight point four percent and the Ether dominance at eighteen point nine percent. And checking out the top one hundred crypto gainers for the past week, virtually nothing, and maybe just a handful, just a sea of losses, very unfortunate for the entire crypto market and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. Of course, we're still in fear today, rated to seventy eight. Last week was a fifty three neutral and last month a fifty four neutral as well. So there you have it. I mean, I've been taking advantage of this recent dip. I mean, sub twenty six thousand dollar Bitcoin seems like a bargain. If you're to ask me, let me know in that live chat. And now let's break down today's Bitcoin technical analysis and check out the charts and what is happening right now in the markets. Bitcoin stayed stubbornly anti trend today, August twenty second, as twenty six thousand became a magnet for the intraday Bitcoin price action. And again, we're just currently dropping right below it. And regarding the RSI readings, here's what someone had to share. At this stage, it feels like a game of chicken to see who is going to make the move to break the chop, according to material indicators. Now analyzing liquidity on the Binance order book, he also notes that a broad lack of liquidity, increasing the potential for a sharp move in either direction. Quitting the analysts here, the market is waiting to see if more bid or more ask liquidity is going to be attracted to the range. So far, we're seeing small amounts of bid liquidity ladder up from twenty thousand closer to the active trading zone, but no liquidity of any size new or moved has been stacked into the range, defending the price from the lower low. The implications were nonetheless potentially very serious for the bulls with the lower low apt to risk even a twenty thousand support going forward. Quitting the analysts again, needless to say, printing a lower low on this time frame has macro implications. Printing two lower lows would push the Bitcoin price to sub twenty thousand dollar levels. So a great question. How many of you are anticipating the Bitcoin price action dropping below twenty thousand? Let me know. Now zooming out, hope remain that Bitcoin can rescue its overall uptrend. So it's not all doom and gloom. In a dedicated video, we had crypto analyst Mikal van de Poppe shared that on the twelve hour time frames, the RSI measured less than nineteen at the time of writing near its lowest level since the twenty eighteen bear market bottom. Daily levels were similar, reaching their lowest since the March twenty twenty no vid crossmarket crash, quitting him here. Every time we see such a move, you get a sort of V shape recovery back up and it finds equilibrium on the higher floor. And he also added it was very likely that Bitcoin can stage a comeback to focus on twenty six five or more next as the outlines here in this chart. He also shared that the current Bitcoin price action reminds me of September twenty twenty absorption and slowly grind higher here for a while. And I can see this play out similarly. So there you have it. What are your thoughts? Do you feel we're likely to continue downwards, potentially sub twenty thousand or even touch in as low as twenty thousand? Or do you feel we're likely to continue climbing back up as the analysts on the ladder shared? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments. Right down below. Now let's discuss a new bull cycle amongst us right now. Shall we check this out? The Bitcoin metric that nailed the pit of the twenty twenty two bear market says this uptrend is still intact. Let's go and a new post. The creator of on chain analytics platform looking to Bitcoin shared some good news in the form of Bitcoin's realized cap huddle waves metric. Let's go. While last week's 10 percent Bitcoin price dip has up ended some of the on chain landscape, the our huddle is one of the metrics taking the longer term view of what remains a timely bull market. This metric takes existing huddle waves data, which groups the Bitcoin supply when each coin or specifically the unspent transaction outputs last moved and waits it by the realized price. An example of the price at which it last move, quoting them here, peaks in younger age bands, highlights the periods where they have a proportionally higher realized value waiting relative to the older realized value age band, said Philip Swift. And he also shares this is important to note, as it indicates that the market is prepared to pay higher values for Bitcoin today and in recent times versus historical norms. This can be a good indicator that the market is becoming overheated. What are your thoughts now? Currently, the bands of coins that last moved three to six months ago are rising, a phenomenon coming to the start of the Bitcoin's previous bull markets. And on the topic of the August drawdown on Bitcoin Swift thus concluded that the recent price dip is the context of a much bigger bull trend, quoting him again here, three to six months band trending up as new money comes back into the market equals new bull cycle. Let's go. Now, our huddle has an impressive record when it comes to Bitcoin price phases. Back in December of last year, when Bitcoin was circling its two year lows of 15 six, which is the current market bottom, Swift used this metric to call the end of the euphoria among Bitcoin's speculative investor cohort, which he labels Taurus. He stated that that time that the market is likely now at these cycle lows, which means maximum risk reward opportunity, which I discussed in great detail yesterday. I said there's way more reward than risk currently in the market. And beginning in January of this year, Bitcoin began a new uptrend that delivered 70 percent gains just in quarter one. And since then, investor composition has changed with the short term huddler entities holding Bitcoin for one hundred and fifty five days or less, reducing their overall exposure to their lowest since November of twenty twenty one. And the latest dip nonetheless increased pressure on those remaining speculators, but almost 90 percent of the short term huddler coins now held at an unrealized loss. But I also like to point out that also the smart money, which are the whales, are continuing to accumulate. So even though the short term investors are the paper hands selling their Bitcoin potentially to BlackRock or MicroStrategy, whatever big corporate interests out there, the smart money is continuing to huddle. And as you know, we like to follow the smart money with that being shared, fam. Now let's discuss this new wallet, which came out of nowhere and has now accrued over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in less than three months. Who do you think owns this wallet? Well, let's look into it and discuss it, shall we? A mysterious Bitcoin wallet has surged up the ranks to become the third largest huddler of Bitcoin in the world in just over three months, with the timing sparking some wild theories about its owner. According to data from crypto statistics platform Bitinfo Charts, the wallet address first received Bitcoin on March 8th, and over the course of the next three months and two weeks, the wallet had accrued a staggering one hundred and eighteen thousand BTC worth over a billion dollars at today's current prices. Now, the rapid and significant accrual of Bitcoin within a single wallet addresses has attracted its fair share of conjecture naturally on X. Some users suggest it's most likely a crypto exchange moving their funds, while some more radical members have posted and more wild theories suggesting that Black Rock is the prime suspect. As shared here, this unknown address has accumulated over three billion dollars worth of Bitcoin in the last three months. The prime suspect, my first major transaction, which was thirty four hundred Bitcoin, occurred on May 16th, 2023, almost exactly one month later, on June 15th, when Black Rock filed for spot Bitcoin ETF. Now, very interesting, right? Now, the current largest Bitcoin wallets in the world, according to Bitinfo Charts, are reportedly owned by Binance and Bitfinex and are Bitcoin cold storage wallets. The unknown Bitcoin wallet comes in third place and is then followed by another Binance cold wallet in fourth place. Now, Black Rock made waves in the crypto market, as we know, June 15th, filing an application for the spot Bitcoin ETF product that, if accepted by the SEC, will be the first of its kind in the United States and completely change the game. Black Rock's applications sparked a wave of filings for similar spot products from a horde of other Wall Street heavyweights, including Fidelity, Invesco, Wisdom Tree and Valkyrie. The prospect of a spot Bitcoin ETF whipped crypto analysts into a frenzy, sharing their bullish predictions for the price of Bitcoin with Fundstrat's head of research, Tom Lee, suggesting that Bitcoin can reach a price of one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty thousand dollars per coin following the halving event scheduled to be in April 2024, which is now officially less than nine months out. What are your thoughts, though, fam? Let me know in the comments. And at the end of the show, I'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. Now let's discuss before we get into very bullish price targets, including this four hundred thousand dollar prediction, which is the main topic for the day. First, let's discuss where's the Bitcoin price likely to bottom out, according to this top analyst. Let's discuss it. The trader who accurately called Bitcoin's twenty eighteen bear market bottom is forecasting how the entire crypto market can carve a price floor for this cycle. Synonymous analyst Bluntz, what a username, love it, shared on social media X that he closely is looking at the total market cap of crypto, which is the total chart. Bluntz says he sees the total chart losing about 15 percent of its value before crypto assets can witness a significant bounce, quitting him here, looking at total paints, the clearest picture of them all and far more than looking at either ETH or BTC on their own based off the total chart. I do believe the June lows still need to be swept before calling bottoms, but it will probably be the last good buying opportunity of the next few years. So seize the moment, fam. And as you can see in this total crypto market chart, you can see we're currently sitting at just barely above one trillion. He sees us dropping before rising to one point four trillion dollars. So it appears that he expects the total market cap of all crypto to plummet to roughly eight hundred and eighty billion, wiping out one hundred and twenty billion off the current market. The analyst is a popular practitioner of the Elliott Wave theory, which we commonly cover here, an advanced technical analysis approach that attempts to predict the future price action by following crowd psychology that tends to manifest in waves. Bluntz says that his prediction is based on a model that outlines an asset's potential correction after a steep rally based, quoting him here, based off simple Elliott Wave model, viewing the rise from the lows as an impulsive move and our corrective wave from the highs being around 70 to 80 percent complete. Now, let me know if you agree or disagree with the crypto analyst. Do you think the crypto market cap needs to shed another one hundred and twenty billion before we rise back on up? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's discuss Guggenheim's seven I'm sorry, four hundred thousand dollar price prediction. Scott Minard, who is their CIO. He originally made this prediction, I believe towards the end of twenty twenty one. Now, unfortunately, he has had a heart attack and he passed, so he's no longer with us. He literally died in December of last year. But nonetheless, he still made this prediction. So we're going to cover it and then we're going to discover the outline metrics from Blockware and their four hundred thousand prediction for the height of this cycle for the next halving reaching the epoch, which is also interesting because they're also suggesting a four hundred thousand dollar price action per coin. Then we'll dive into our live Q &A. So here we go. This was again, this article was dated, as you can see here, January 18th, twenty twenty one. So this is roughly just over two years ago. And at that time, Bitcoin was trading just above forty one thousand dollars. So here's the prediction coming from Scott Minard, from Guggenheim, a large, large asset manager. I think one thing that we are seeing is the sudden interest in retail. We are moving into a speculative frenzy and perhaps it's time to take some money off the table. Now, the debate around Minard's two opposite comments for Bitcoin sparked curiosity amongst the crypto community when he said time to take money off the table. And he also added on this tweet, it was before it became X, it was right Twitter. So he shared Bitcoin's parabolic rise is unsustainable in the near term, vulnerable to a setback. The target technical upside of thirty five thousand has been exceeded time to take some money off the table. And just at that time when he made that tweet, Bitcoin entered a strong correction. And over that time, Bitcoin tested support at thirty thousand twice before resuming back northwards and also talking about the positive side, back to the four hundred thousand price prediction. The Guggenheim CIO said that Bitcoin is becoming a favorable asset class slowly. That's right. And still remains positive on the Bitcoin price action for the long term, quitting him here. The other side of that is demonstrating that crypto is becoming much more mainstream. The four hundred thousand dollar price I talked about was based off the supply of gold in the world and crypto in a lot of ways is more attractive than gold. Let me know if you agree or disagree. I absolutely agree that Bitcoin is way more attractive than gold and comparing it to the yellow metal market. Minard said that Bitcoin comes with additional benefits like portability and ease of transactions. And note that Guggenheim Partners is already seeking five hundred million dollars worth of exposure to Bitcoin via the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which is the GBTC product, the largest HODLer Bitcoin in the world. They currently control over four hundred thousand BTC. So this will be a 10 percent exposure to Bitcoin from five billion Guggenheim's macro opportunities fund. The investment giant's proposed SEC filing shall become effective January 31st. And when asked Minard of if any of their funds have been allocated into Bitcoin, Minard hinted that they are still waiting for the SEC to approve their proposal. He added that if client demand picks up, they would possibly consider some allocations. And he also revealed that some small private Guggenheim funds have done some allocations, quoting him again, and some of our private funds, we have already purchased it. I recommended it to somebody. So if you believe what I said, that it'll go to four hundred thousand dollars per coin eventually, then two percent of your portfolio will be 20 percent before this is all over. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Scott Minard. And again, rest in peace. The dude had a heart attack at the end of last year and is no longer with us. And with that being shared now for our main story of the day, and that's the block where outline prediction of a four hundred thousand dollar Bitcoin price, along with the math to back it up. Now, this is pretty awesome. And again, shout out to everyone today in our live chat. I appreciate everyone's support. Shout out to Blockware Solutions as they shared on X how Bitcoin can reach four hundred thousand dollars per coin during the next halving epoch brought to you by Blockware Intelligence. Here we go. Twenty twenty four halving analysis, understanding the market cycles and opportunities created by the halving. Unlike other commodities, Bitcoin has a predetermined algorithmic supply schedule, which cannot be changed. There are multiple factors contributing to the cyclical nature of Bitcoin's price, including network adoption and the macroeconomic environment. But the most impactful is the mining subsidy halving. Yeah, that's right. Bitcoin's market cycles are unique due to its fully transparent block chain, providing market participants with more granular information than any other asset class. And moreover, the predictable supply schedule further impacts the psychology of market participants and example demand. So number one, halving's reduce the sell pressure. Miners are the primary force of sell pressure on the price of Bitcoin they receive, although the newly issued Bitcoin and the majority of which they must sell in order to fund operating expenses for their mining operations, the weakest miners on the network are eliminated and sell pressure is significantly reduced. The price of Bitcoin begins drifting up and a new wave of adoption then begins and assuming a thirty five thousand price action after the halving, the U .S. dollar value of Bitcoin mined per year can drop from eleven and a half billion to five point seven billion dollars. That is one hundred and sixty four thousand two hundred and fifty Bitcoin less mined every year, more than MicroStrategy's entire Bitcoin treasury. Now, after the inefficient miners capitulate, the profit margin increases for surviving miners, which further reduces the sell pressure. So based on the post capitulation hashrate estimate, this would result in a two point three billion dollar reduction in annual sell pressure from the miners. Now, number two, halving brings new demand with supply being diminished. Demand is the only remaining variable determining the market price of BTC. Many market participants understand the supply side dynamics at play due to the halvings. Historically, this has led to a surge in demand in the months following each halving, as evidenced by on chain data. We'll be checking out these charts in a little bit and do the positive sentiment market participants prepare to deploy capital at the first sign of upward momentum. Now decreased supply plus increased demand equals strong positive signal for the price appreciation. Number three, the halvings cannot be priced in. Despite their predictable nature, halvings cannot be fully priced in before they occur. A higher price today would result in more miners coming online, introducing additional sell pressure and limiting the price appreciation. And moreover, the weakest miners, those with old generation machines and or high operating costs, are the first to unplug post halving. The elimination of these miners significantly reduces the sell pressure as they were selling most of their Bitcoin to fund their operations. Lastly, there are some market participants that believe halvings are bad for the security of the Bitcoin network as the diminishing block subsidy reduces the amount of miners making Bitcoin more vulnerable to an attack. And when halving successfully occur, these doubters are proved wrong and positive sentiment increases. Now, number four, Bitcoin cycle volatility and historical performance. Bitcoin's extreme volatility is a side effect of its halving shocks and rapid global adoption, resulting in four distinct stages within each halving cycle. Stage one, the halving, stage two, the bull market, stage three, the bear market and then stage four, recovery. And while Bitcoin is often criticized for its extreme volatility on a long enough time horizon, its volatility is solely to the upside. Keep that in mind. Now, nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. That's worth repeating. Nobody who has ever bought Bitcoin and held it for more than five years is down on their purchase. So in a long term, how long is that? Holla in the live chat. And for each epoch, the price of Bitcoin has increased by the following amounts from the halving to the next bull market top from 2009 to 2011. We had a 584 X increase in price action from 2012 to 2015, 92 X from 2016 to 2019, 30 X and from 2020 to 2024, 7 .7 X. And now number five, diminishing returns may not be the case going forward. Some question the bullishness of these halvings as the stock of existing Bitcoin grows relative to the amount of new bitcoins being mine. This is a common perspective, but it may be incorrect. Less than 10 percent of the existing Bitcoin have moved in the last month. A large majority of Bitcoin is held by users unwilling to sell at today's price. Now, the small amount of bitcoins that is moving and being traded is what determines today's price. There is a baseline of demand and from Bitcoin are saving for the future. The reduction in sell pressure becomes more pronounced, each halving after Bitcoin more than doubles in price. This indicates that halving induced reductions in sell pressure could become more extreme and potentially lead to larger bull runs in the future. Now, 2024 will be the first halving where the supply of Bitcoin available for trade decreased since the previous halving. And during spring of 2020, the percentage of the outstanding Bitcoin available for trade was at an all time high, indicating the Bitcoin was over becoming more abundant. However, this trend had reversed over the last three and a half years. And as the new bull market begins, there will be less Bitcoin available than the previous cycles. The first halving this has ever occurred. And assuming the price of thirty five thousand at the date of the halving, a four hundred thousand dollar cycle top would break the trend of diminishing returns, which is a reasonable expectation due to the two billion having supply shock and increasing scarcity, a liquid BTC supply on the exchanges. Now, number six, juxtaposition with gold. Gold is an asset similar to Bitcoin and that they are both non -sovereign stores of value. However, when juxtaposed, Bitcoin poses far more desirable attributes. Facts. Number one, Bitcoin is absolutely scarce, while gold is only relatively scarce. That's true because with gold, you can continue mining a new supply, adding to the overall supply each and every year with Bitcoin. There could never be more than twenty one million Bitcoin. And number two, Bitcoin is more portable, divisible, fungible and is less vulnerable to rehypothecation by centralized custodians. Facts. So after the 2024 halving, the inflation rate of Bitcoin will fall under one percent, which is less than half that of gold. Now, four hundred thousand dollars per Bitcoin would put the market cap of Bitcoin just beneath the parity with gold. Let's go. Can't wait for a twelve trillion market cap for the king crypto personally. Now, given the bullish catalysts induced by the halving, we believe this is a fair estimate for the top of the coming Bitcoin cycle. Now let's take a look at some of these charts, which they shared. This first one shows you the Bitcoin price issuance with the 90 day moving 90 day change issuance. And you can see, you know, the different metrics here in the different colors. And then let's go to their next chart here. It shows you entities net growth with a 30 day moving average. You can see the surge in demand and just continuing to move on up like clockwork. And then in this final chart here, we can see the Bitcoin price all time highs for each cycle, which is separated, which you can see here. Yes. So, I mean, if history doesn't repeat, oftentimes it shall rhyme. So I cannot wait. And I'd personally love to see a four hundred thousand dollar price action. And this shows you the hash rate, which just continues to climb, reaching all time highs, making the Bitcoin network more secure than it's ever been before. And they also shared an interesting update, which I might as well read that as well right here. Part two. Let's read a touch of this and then we'll dive into our live Q &A. What machine and electricity rate will Bitcoin miners need to survive this twenty twenty four halving? Check it out. There are three distinct phases in the time before, during and after the twenty twenty four Bitcoin halving. We've got number one, the pre halving, number two, the post halving and number three, post capitulation. Number one, the pre halving before the twenty twenty four halving, all miners will be operating at a profit but are likely selling at least enough Bitcoin to cover their operation expenses. Miners with the most efficient machines and the lowest energy rates have the lowest Bitcoin breakeven prices. And the miners with higher breakeven prices are either unprofitable or forced to sell at a higher percentage of the Bitcoin that they mine in order to cover their operating expenses. And also it includes what's minor and Avalon equivalents, which are size adjusted for the percentage of the total network hash rate. Now let's discuss the post halving after the twenty twenty four halving. Many miners will become unprofitable since miners have already made significant capital expenditures for mining Bitcoin infrastructure and are locked into energy contracts. They are unlikely to turn off immediately. So instead, they will try to continue operating for as long as possible, hoping the Bitcoin increases enough to make them profitable again. Now, unless Bitcoin price appreciates quickly, the extreme margin compression will begin to force inefficient miners offline. And number three, the post capitulation following the capitulation of inefficient miners difficulty will adjust down, lowering the breakeven prices for surviving miners who will become even more profitable. So there you have it. I mean, shout out again to Blockware. Awesome analysis on their outline of the Bitcoin price going to four hundred thousand dollars per coin at the epoch of the next halving, which again is right around the corner next year.

A highlight from 1368: Michael Saylor - Should We Trust BlackRock with Bitcoin?
"In today's show, I'll be breaking down the latest technical analysis as Bitcoin trader reveals important Bitcoin price zone as the bulls hold on to $29 ,300. Also breaking news, Sam Bankman free jailed for tampering with evidence. I'll be breaking down all these recent details just announced as well as the SEC punts on ARK 21 share spot Bitcoin ETF as well as PayPal US dollar stablecoin will have a massive impact on Ethereum. We'll also be discussing one catalyst which can trigger the next upward move for Bitcoin predicts Glassnode co -founders as well as Michael Saylor predicting that BlackRock Citadel Fidelity will send the Bitcoin price to a million dollars per coin. Also Michael Saylor, who was recently interviewed by Natalie Brunel on the Coin Stories pod was asked, should we trust BlackRock with Bitcoin? You'll be surprised to hear what he had to say. We'll be discussing all this plus so much more in today's show. Yo, what's good crypto fam? This is first and foremost a video show. So if you want the full premium experience with video, visit my rumble channel at cryptonewsalerts .net again that's crypto news alerts .net and welcome everyone. Just joining us the pod episode number 1368 I am broadcasting simultaneously right now on YouTube and rumble. Make sure to make some noise in the live chat. Let's kick off today's show with our market watch. We can see many of the cryptos currently correcting back in the red. We got Bitcoin trading at roughly $29 ,300. We have ETH down a quarter of a percent trading at $1 ,842 and checking out coinmarketcap .com. The current crypto market cap sits at $1 .17 trillion with $23 billion in volume in the past 24 hours and checking out the top 100 crypto gainers for the past week. We can see a mix of C, you know, red and green. We have some of the biggest losers including Hex and XDC and GMX with some of the top gainers Shiba and Rune and checking out the crypto greed and fear index. We're currently rated a 51 which is neutral. Yesterday a 53, last week a 54 and last month a 64 in greed. So there you have it. We have Bitcoin facing a new battleground as the bulls and bears fight for control of a sideways market and part of his latest analysis on August 11th, Dan Crypto Trades flagged the key level to reclaim the Bitcoin price support and with Bitcoin price breakouts continually failing both the Bitcoin bulls and bears are caught in a strongly contested range. This is the culmination of various trips above and below the current spot price making the midpoint the level to watch out for next. Now the status quo has recently remained the same since mid -June 28 .5 as fundamental support 31 ,800 as resistance and quoting him here, pretty clear that the 29 .5 to 29 .7 region is an area that is strongly contested by the bulls and the bears. It's an important area to keep watching and an accompanying chart showed Bitcoin nonetheless fighting to return to above that range low with little significant historical support lines between 28 .5 and 29 .5. Now the analyst thus ties in other perspectives from recent weeks. These likewise focusing on 28 .5 or slightly lower as a downside target and focusing on the short term Bitcoin price events fellow trader Sku highlighted just how frantic the mid 29 zone currently is for Bitcoin quoting him here, Bitcoin and now they're puking the bag. Now also continuing Sku described the spot price action on the four hour timeframe as we despite holding above various exponential moving averages as he shows here, tight price compression here, likely a 5 % plus price reaction is coming from here. So there you have it. And now for some breaking news which just came in right before I decided to go live and that Sam Bankman freed his, I guess his, what is it called? His bail was revoked and he was sent to jail for allegedly tampering with evidence. So let's discuss this as there's so much breaking news coming in. Exciting times. So here we have it. Sam Bankman freed jailed for tampering with evidence. United States district judge issued the ruling Friday afternoon on prosecutors request to revoke SPF's bail after they accused him of trying to intimidate a witness and a run up to his trial. Freed was previously serving house arrest in his California home. The freed use of the private VPN while on house arrest was also brought into question. Prosecutors say that freed shared confidential documents belonging to Caroline Ellison with the New York Times. This activity was part of an ongoing media strategy at the ruling judge said that all things considered, I'm going to revoke his bail. Bankman freed who has pleaded not guilty to multiple conspiracy and fraud charges is set to go to trial in October. His case is widely regarded as one of the biggest cases of fraud in US history. You can't make this stuff up, folks. How many of you are actually pretty excited on this news seeing Bankman freed's, you know what I mean, bail be revoked and be sent to jail? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments below. As more news comes, I'll be sharing it all for you to keep you up to date with what is happening if anything new comes in. And now for our next breaking story of the day, it's the SEC punting the ETF of ARK 21, which is Cathie Wood of ARK Invest. We'll be breaking this down, followed by the latest with PayPal and the stablecoin, all the latest news surrounding that, followed by what's likely Bitcoin's next big move. And we'll also be discussing the one million dollar price prediction from Michael Saylor, as well as Michael Saylor's thoughts on BlackRock. And if he trusts BlackRock with Bitcoin, it's very interesting to hear his response to Natalie Brunel when he was recently asked this question on the Coin Stories pod. And of course, we'll be ending the show with our live Q &A, which we do each and every day. So yeah, now let's break down this next story of the day and shout out to everyone out there in the live chat. Much love, much respect. The US SEC has delayed a decision on approving or disapproving the spot Bitcoin ETF proposed by ARK Invest. And in August 11th notice, the SEC opened the 21 day comment period for the ARK 21 shares Bitcoin ETF to the public following a publication in the Federal Register. The latest delay for the regulator determining whether to approve or disapprove a spot crypto ETF in the United States. Now ARK originally filed to list ETF back in May, giving the SEC a maximum of 240 days, which would be until January of 2024 to reach the final decision. Quoting them here, the regulated market of significant size test does not require that the spot Bitcoin market be regulated in order for the commission to approve this proposal. The precedent makes clear that an underlying market for a spot commodity or currency being a regulated market would actually be an exception to the norm. Now ARK Investment Management is one of the many firms in the US applying to get a spot crypto ETF listed on a regulated exchange. We also have BlackRock, the largest asset management firm in the world, notably sent in its own application back in July. And a number of other firms also amended existing apps to include crypto exchange Coinbase as a surveillance sharing partner following reports that the SEC officials could be more open to accepting an ETF under those conditions. So there you have it. In a previous episode, we discussed, I believe it was Novogratz, predicting that a spot Bitcoin ETF is likely to get approved in the United States within the next four to six months. What are your thoughts? Do you think it's likely to be approved potentially this year or first quarter of next year before the Bitcoin halving scheduled for April of 2024? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And now let's break down our next story of the day and discuss everything with this PayPal stablecoin. Even Charlie Schramm is bullish. He said this can send the Bitcoin price to $250 ,000 a lot sooner than anticipated. But it all could also obviously impact the rest of the crypto market, including Ethereum. Bloomberg Intelligence crypto market analyst Jamie Kautz predicts PayPal's new stablecoin will have a huge impact on Ethereum. Kautz says that there is a massive growth potential for Ethereum, even if just a small percentage of PayPal's existing customer base adopts the stablecoin, which aims to keep a one to one peg to the U .S. dollar and is built upon Ethereum. Quoting him here, the PayPal announcement is not priced in. PayPal has four hundred and thirty five million active accounts versus Ethereum layer one and layer two active addresses at one million. If one percent convert a dollar balance to the PayPal stablecoin, which is P .Y .U .S .D., which would be four point three five million and begin to use it, then the ramifications for the Ethereum ecosystem and ETH, the asset are massive. I mean, numbers don't line as outlined here, you can see the current active users and addresses. Now, Kautz also said that the bullish he is bullish on layer one smart contract platforms after the expansion of layer two projects had less of an adverse impact on ETH's financials than he expected, as he shows here. The dual surprise of faster layer two adoption and less than expected cannibalization of the layer one financials has our confidence in Ethereum's potential to accrue more value than alternative layer ones over the cycle. The analyst says that each sideways price action doesn't tell the full story of all that is going on within the ecosystem, including network developments and increased Ethereum stake and quitting him again, flat price, mass and proven value accretion. Number one, network is back on growth trajectory, driven by growing layer twos and less severe monetary tightening. Number two, mostly deflationary, despite the bear market. And number three, despite cooling activity, ETH stake accelerated up 38 percent in just three months. And according to Kautz, ETH's accumulation is increasing during the stalled crypto market. As outlined here, while activity is down, investors are nonetheless demonstrating aggressive accumulation behavior. The total number of non -zero balance addresses exceeds 100 million, with over 1 .7 million wallets containing at least one ETH. Now, Kautz notices that each network is generating 3x the amount of revenue compared to the fourth quarter of last year, as shared here. Depending upon your framing, the dollar value of the network GDP slash revenue, while down significantly from 2021, has increased 3x from the fourth quarter 2022 low and is now outpacing the price. Layer one generates approximately 6 million in fee revenue per day. Eighty percent is burnt, which is a buyback, and the rest is paid to validators. So there you have it. Are you also bullish on the news of this stable coin coming out by PayPal, considering they have over 400 million active users, which can help usher in massive adoption for crypto, including the King BTC? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. And now let's break down our next story of the day. And that's Michael Saylor, actually, before we get to Saylor's million dollar prediction and his thoughts on if he trusts BlackRock with Bitcoin, first, we've got to discuss the latest from Glassnode Analytics with the next big move for Bitcoin. So first, let's break this down. And again, say hello in the live chat. Let me know where you're tuning in from. And if you have any questions at the end of the show, we'll be reading everyone's comments out loud. The co -founders of crypto analytics platform Glassnode are forecasting that one catalyst can kickstart the Bitcoin next rally. Glassnode co -founders Jan and Jan, who share the handle, tell their 55 ,900 X followers that if the relative strength index indicator falls below 37, it can trigger a Bitcoin rally. Send it. The RSI indicator scales from zero to 100. And a reading of below 30 is typically considered bullish, while a reading of over 70 is typically considered to be a bearish sign. And according to Glassnode co -founders, there are potential buyers waiting below and around the 28 ,500 support level as shared here, Bitcoin's potential retest of 28 ,500 bottom indicated by the RSI. The bears are holding sway with RSI between 37 and 50. Sub 37 RSI can trigger a strong reversal and demand shows up between 28 ,500 and 27 ,800. Is this the catalyst for the next upwards move? Let me know your thoughts. Now, turning to alts, the Glassnode co -founders say that unless a surprise catalyst comes up, the alts are only likely to rally after the summer as they struggle amid a dip in the Bitcoin price as shared here. Despite Bitcoin's bullish move past 30 ,000 this week, will it continue? Altcoins struggle except for standouts like Solana. We have TonCoin and Hedera showing gains of 6 to 9 percent overnight. As Bitcoin dips, altcoins will feel the pressure unless the surprise catalyst emerges. We are waiting for that strong push, possibly post summer. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with Glassnode analytics and how many of you are currently bullish on the King crypto. Let me know your thoughts in the comments right down below. And when do you think we'll break past the current annual high of 30? What is that, 32 ,000? Let me know. Do you feel it's likely to happen sooner than later, or do you think we could continue some sideways trading action until the end of this year? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below. Now let's break down our next story of the day. And that's Michael Saylor's one million dollar Bitcoin price prediction as a result of all of these recent ETFs, which can soon be approved by the SEC. Here we go. Michael Saylor actually shared this a few weeks back on the which one was it? The Altcoin Daily podcast. And I transcribed it for you so I can read it for you right here. Here's what Saylor had to say. It looks like a spot ETF will probably get approved. There is massive political pressure to approve one. The circumstances have changed and now there is a way for the SEC to approve it without backtracking on its previous legal and policy guidance. Certainly there has are a lot of Wall Street entities that have a vested interest in seeing this happen. If you're an institution, one way to get Bitcoin exposure is to buy the underlying asset. But there have been challenges with finding the right exchange to buy it on and custody arrangements. So a simpler way to do so simply by the spot ETF. There are trillions of dollars of capital that is required to invest in a security that trades in these compliant forums. And that is understating the obvious. There's tens of trillions of dollars. So there is a lot of capital that can't buy the Bitcoin or self custody of the Bitcoin. They don't want to do charter. Maybe it's against the tax code. Maybe when they raise 10 billion dollars from public investors, they raise it to invest in securities, but not interested in property or commodities. So the spot ETF availability is a major milestone for institutional adoption. The approval of a spot ETF is a major milestone in regulatory clarity, which is tantamount to an endorsement. The engagement of Fidelity, Citadel, Black Rob Schwab, I mean Schwab is synonymous with Wall Street, 100 years of Wall Street. So what you have is Wall Street coming together to offer securities and exchange services and indirectly custody services for mainstream investors. And if we look out about 12 months and if I was saying, what are the key milestones that drive mainstream Bitcoin adoption? Well one of them clearly is a spot ETF. The second is the designation that Bitcoin is an asset class, the recognition of it as a legitimate commodity. It's a big deal. When Jerome Powell says it's not going away, when Gensler and the head of the SEC and CFTC both say it's a digital commodity, digital commodity might not sound like much, but when you go down the next round, like is it a Ponzi scheme or is it a scam or tulip bulbs? The difference between tulip bulbs and digital commodity is a zero versus one. I have said before, and I'll repeat it again, if it's not going to zero, it's going to a million dollars. It is either nothing and if it's nothing, then it's getting scrubbed out and banned. And of course we now know that it's not getting banned. There is no way that Fidelity, Citadel, Black Rob, Charles Schwab, Deutsche Bank, Credit Agricole, Banco Santander, all decide they're interested in this. They are not endorsing a tulip bulb, right? Once you go from zero to one, then the question is, well, it's an asset class and if it's not going away, well, what's it worth? Well it's worth 1 % of the assets in the world. So 1 % drives it up by a factor of 10 to 20. So there you have it. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the Giga Chad and his $1 million price prediction, which I feel is inevitable, especially once that ETF is finally approved as there's literally hundreds of trillions of dollars in the total addressable market, which can start to pour into the King crypto. Now for Michael Saylor's latest from his interview on the podcast with Natalie Brunell when he was asked, do you trust BlackRock with Bitcoin? And Saylor had a very, very intriguing response. So let me break this down for you. Actually transcribed this just this morning and I posted it on crypto Twitter right here and it's already getting a lot of traction. So yeah, when he was asked this question, he responded, Bitcoin fixes everything. And if we think about what that means, we need to be prepared for Bitcoin to infuse everything. The right way to think about it, Bitcoin is going to be a base layer and there's going to be layer twos like lightning to move things fast. And there's going to be layer threes, which is custodial, like the cash app, like Coinbase, like Fidelity, JP Morgan, Bank of America, Apple, Google. There's going to be custodial layer threes and they're going to exist to provide functionality or utility. And there are technical reasons to trust a third party. The best way to think about Bitcoin is Bitcoin offers sovereignty and integrity and empowerment, not just to the individual, but also to the family, the clan, the village, the city, the country, I mean, the county, the state, the province and the country, the company, the institution, the agency, the group, the community organization, every one of these entities all have their own agency and we don't want them to not have access to this. Bitcoin makes your country better, makes your company better, makes your family better, makes your community better, makes your school better, makes you better. Preach is going to make everything better. But there's different types of rappers we need to put it in. So we shouldn't be afraid of those things. Someone said, well, aren't you afraid these big organizations are going to buy Bitcoin and centralize it? I said, it's like asking me if I am afraid that someone in Japan is going to speak English and if that's going to undermine the English language, if Samsung is the biggest company in Korea and they start speaking English and they build support for English into their products, does that corrupt the English language? No, it actually makes it much better. They are going to use it differently. What's the likelihood that Samsung can change the definition of love or change the meaning of 100 different words by adopting it? Not likely. So I think it's a protocol. The protocol is going to infuse everything and we shouldn't be afraid of all the different ways that people choose to integrate, wrap, embed or execute with Bitcoin. There is no one right answer and the marketplace will determine the right mix of integrations of Bitcoin. So there you have it. Very powerful words coming from the GigaChad. Let me know if you agree or disagree. I also get the point of what he is sharing, regardless if we can trust BlackRock or not. This is excellent for mass adoption. And I love that analogy and metaphor he shares with, you know, is Samsung the biggest company in Korea? And they started speaking English. Is that going to undermine the English language? Absolutely not. And the same thing with Bitcoin adoption. So shout out to the GigaChad. Michael Saylor also thinks that the SEC crackdown can boost the Bitcoin dominance to 80 percent. And I'd love to know your thoughts. Do you feel that this cycle, the Bitcoin Dom, can climb to 80 percent? Let me know your honest thoughts in the comments right down below.

A highlight from CARPE CONSENSUS: PayPal Steps Into the Stablecoin Game
"This is Carpe Consensus. Join hosts Ben Shiller, Danny Nelson and Cam Thompson as they seize the world of crypto. Hello and welcome to Carpe Consensus. This is a podcast from the CoinDesk Podcast Network and I am Ben Shiller and welcoming today Cam Thompson. Hi Cam. How are you? It looks like you're on holiday. Yes. Well, not on holiday, just working remotely from another location. I am currently in Maine right now and it's very nice, very breezy, a little chillier up here, but I'm not complaining. You know, lots of lobster. Mmm, lobster, nice. Lobster for breakfast, lobster for lunch. Literally, lobster at every meal. So we've got a bumper packed show today. Danny Nelson is out. He's at a hackathon in Utah, which is a nice place to be this time of year as well. And then we're going to get to some big news in the world of crypto, which is the issuance of a new stablecoin backed by PayPal. We're going to talk about its very big news and we'll have David Morris, who's the chief columnist here at CoinDesk to talk about that a little later on. And let's get to that. OK, we're going to get to our next segment now, and we're joined by the great David Morris here, the chief columnist here at CoinDesk. Welcome, David. Hey, glad to be here, Ben. Good to have you. So we're going to get to the big news this week, which is a new stablecoin from PayPal. It's on Ethereum. It's USD backed and it's very big deal in crypto. PayPal has about four hundred and thirty five million customers. So this is seen as a big mainstreaming moment for crypto. What do you make of this, David? What are your big takeaways? Yeah, the implications of this are, I think, pretty big. I think there are a lot of questions that still remain to be answered about what PayPal's real motivation is here, what their business case is. But it's going to have, I think, pretty significant impacts, particularly on regulation, because I think this this does put a fire under people in terms of getting some kind of structure in place by which these things are supposed to operate. And I think there are some interesting possibilities from a consumer perspective, although I wonder about exactly how PayPal is going to get people to to use this versus their regular service and how those will interact. So lots, lots to discuss. Definitely. So David, about 30 minutes ago, you tweeted PayPal USD will be the most censored and seized centralized cryptocurrency of all time. What are your thoughts behind that? Yeah, well, I think this is a very important thing in the fact that I think it's not totally widely understood is one of the reasons I tweeted that thing is because, you know, everybody talking here, but maybe not all listeners know that not just Circle and USDC, but Tether, which is, you know, mysterious offshore entity. They still cooperate with governments when they get anti terrorism, anti money laundering notices asking that they block particular users. So there are, you know, pretty constant cases of censorship on Circle and Tether. I say PayPal will be the worst for two reasons. One is that PayPal already has a really established track record of being very quick with blocking people, seizing people's accounts, providing very little explanation, doing it for unclear reasons. And then second, I think that there will be probably a decent number of people who try and use this product in an illicit way thinking that it is uncensorable because it's crypto. And I wouldn't put it past PayPal that that is at least like part of their thinking here, not to say that it's part of their strategy or the reason they're doing it. But I think that they they must be aware that there will be a certain number of people who misuse this product thinking it's something that it's not. So that was what I was thinking there. So just to get on that kind of centralising point that you made, I mean, a lot of people are quick to say this is good for crypto. But I guess the question becomes, what do you mean by crypto? Because, you know, okay, if you have this stable coin, you can buy Bitcoin and Ethereum on PayPal with it. But it isn't necessarily an endorsement of an open source version of crypto, is it? I mean, a stable coin issued by a company like PayPal is not really crypto in the sense of, you know, what we mean by the Bitcoin white paper. Yeah, I mean, I think that we're in the territory now where there is a, you know, it's not just PayPal, there's a debate within the crypto community about what that means and what we're actually going for. And I think it's a legitimate debate at this point, because you do have fully decentralised, fully uncensorable things like Bitcoin. But stable coins are clearly a part of the ecosystem.
A highlight from Michael Saylor: Bitcoin is Winning | EP 796
"You Yeah to simply Bitcoin live that was a tongue twister We are your number one source of the peaceful Bitcoin revolution code breaking news culture medic warfare We will be your guide through the separation of money and say it's the Friday show Super excited. Oh, man. It's been it's been quite a week gonna start We're gonna end it with some bullish news Michael Saylor is going absolutely ham We we know that this week he announced that he was gonna sell 750 dollars 750 million dollars worth of micro strategy stock to stack more Bitcoin Then he's going also on CNBC to make you say that there's a universal consensus that Bitcoin is winning, right? It's a decentralized global asset has no issuer It's a digital gold standard of digital commodities Michael Saylor is going full balls to the wall And and again if it was just Michael Saylor by by himself, you know, it'd be a different story, but you also have Larry Fink Speaking wonders about Bitcoin also on legacy corporate financial media as well This is a crazy time to be alive. I could have never have expected this five years ago I can't even imagine where we're gonna be five years from now I think we're gonna see you know, a lot of fortune 500 CEOs have no choice But to put Bitcoin on their balance sheet I really think that this next cycle and the cycle after that you're gonna see this massive wave of global adoption So I could not be more bullish all the stars are aligning But at the same time while all this is happening, you know on the political front like we covered yesterday Or the day before All kind of mixes together these days we were talking about the senator Cynthia Lummis and the senator Warren bill and you know the the wording in that bill was was very troubling right that you had this idea of KYC miners KYC wallet providers KYC validators, like how is that even possible? How is that even enforceable we had the CEO of start 9 yesterday, you know They make some of the best Bitcoin nodes in the business and he was literally saying it right? He's like that's that's impossible They're not gonna be able to do this But doesn't mean they're not gonna try right? So just because of all this bullish news that's happening, you know Don't put your defense down.

Dr. Rev. Ahmondra McClendon's Journey to Reclaim Her Queendom
"Don't you share a little bit about, you know, who you are, like a little bit about your journey, you know, the things that you talk about in your book and how you claimed your queendom back, how you got it back. Go ahead. The floor is yours. Thank you so much. You know, as I was writing the book, I realized that I've been so blessed because I've come through so much, and this is a story about healing and transformation and the fact that I lived so many years with secrets, secrets of a 20 plus year drug and alcohol addiction, secrets about domestic violence, secrets about childhood trauma, molestation. And then as a young woman, having my best friend murdered and never understanding who did it or why they did it, and never speaking about any of that, but living this life on the outside as if everything was okay. I was a high achiever. I went to college. If you looked at me and you looked at my husband, we look like the perfect couple, like life was well and good and it wasn't. I was living behind a wall of secrets and it wasn't until my 20s when I was diagnosed with discord lupus erythematosus that I really started to understand if I did not do something, I was going to live a life of illness for a long time and possibly die because of my illness. And that was when I started to begin to make small changes. And then I made a large change. And that large change was ending my marriage, which was filled with domestic violence. I ended that marriage, returned to school and also started to do some healing. And as a result, I ended up in recovery. I was a practicing addict and alcoholic, which means that I functioned every day. I got up and I went to work every day. So in my mind, I was fine. I couldn't, how could I be an addict or an alcoholic if I'm functioning and I'm completing college and I'm an administrator of a large organization, not realizing or understanding that it is a disease. And through a series of events, I ended up, it's funny, in a meeting, I thought I was going to help other people and ended up helping myself. And that is when I stepped into recovery. And that is when I started looking at my life, truly peeling back the curtain and taking a really honest look like everything isn't OK. And I am hurting and hurting in a very deep way. And that is when the recovery started. And that is also when I was made friends with other women in recovery. And we're still friends. That's why sisterhood is so important to me. We've been together for thirty five. I've been in recovery thirty six years. So we've been together all this time. And this is the place where I can go to and talk about whatever is going on with me so that I don't live with those secrets, because secrets have a tendency to make us do other things so that we feel good because the secrets make us feel bad.

And I would love for you to join us. So go to patreon .com slash welcome to the A World of Difference podcast. I'm Lori Adams Brown, and this is a podcast for those who are different and want to make a difference. Today on the show, we have Dr. L. Carol Scott. She's going to be talking to us today as a trauma -informed developmental psychologist, a TEDx speaker, a coach, and a No. 1 international bestselling author. Carol brings the SASS self -aware success strategies to help you get along better in the adult playgrounds where you play. I know many of us are concerned about some of the situations and systems in workplaces and faith -based spaces where people who have been survivors of abuse or even potentially, you know, grown up in homes or faith -based spaces where abuse was happening and maybe even covered up really may not have had the tools to address those issues in our adult lives and in the workplace. And it can cause all kinds of situations that are as small as just a regular conflict or as large as actually experiencing abuse oneself in one's work environment or especially in the faith -based spaces. As many of you know, I experienced abuse in a workplace environment, which was a faith -based space, a megachurch. And systems the that were happening there, we could have used a lot more conversation and tools, especially from the one who was abusing us, so we could recognize some of those things a lot earlier and learn to be self -aware about what was happening in terms of the gaslighting many of us were experiencing and abuse that we also endured. So from a psychological perspective of someone who's trauma -informed, I felt like it would be helpful to learn from some different experts. So we're going to be having different people on the podcast to help us speak into these issues around mental health and wellness going forward. We're going to take just a few opportunities this summer to dig into that here and there as different podcast guests come on the show. But as we talk about this, and some of this might, you know, be triggering, so trigger warning to any of you who this conversation is too much right now, just feel free to stop the podcast now or take it in chunks, because we will be dealing with, you know, the topic of how to be aware in your own self and your own body around issues of abuse that might be taking place toward you or around you that you're observing as a bystander. And so, yeah, listener discretion advised from this point forward about this interview. And so hopefully this conversation today will help us all be a little more self -aware about some strategies we can use to help ourselves flourish and help all human beings flourish. So a very warm welcome today to Dr. L. Carol Scott. Hello, Dr. Scott, thank you so much for joining us today. I am so thrilled to be here, Lori. Thank you for having me. Well, we love talking to people that do all kinds of amazing things and write things and make differences around the world and bring their differences to the table. So it's wonderful to have you and get to know you a little bit better today and the work that you've done. So for those who haven't met you before or you're new to them, why don't you give us a little bit about your own background and how you became interested in this field of work that you do? Okay, I'd love to do that. I call myself a trauma -informed developmental psychologist. And what that means is that I understand how children grow up from birth to adulthood, human development overall, but particularly I specialize in the birth to seven age range. And about how that period of our lives in particular makes us who we are as adults interacting with other adults, our relationships with each other as adults, and the unique ways in which we express our difference in the world is something that is created in those first seven years of our lives. It's a significant period of time, isn't it? And number one puts a lot of responsibility on parents and villages that are raising children together. But it also is important for us to know as adults that things that may have happened in our childhood can still be impacting us as adults, well, you know, to midlife and beyond. And there's a lot for people to unpack there, right? So, um, you might say not just can be influencing, but absolutely are. Yeah, absolutely are. No, yes. Yeah. Well, this is exciting as a topic to talk about today, because I know there are many people, especially during the COVID pandemic, I talked with therapists all the time that are professional therapists working in our community here where I live in Silicon Valley and actually was speaking to someone earlier today, and she said, if you came out of that whole COVID period of time, especially a year and a half of online school, and you aren't talking to a therapist, maybe you should because we've all collectively as a planet dealt with something really difficult. And so but your website really mentions that you specialize in resilience and change. So can you explain what that means and and sort of why that's important? Yes, sure, absolutely. So we, as young children, really have the opportunity to try out natural instincts for social and emotional connection with other people. And depending on what kind of response we get from the adults who are our caregivers and our educators, we may come into our adulthood with a great deal of interpersonal capacity for really healthy relationships that are fun and joyful and enriching and don't drive us nuts. And if we get other kinds of responses or if we have if we participate in a cultural trauma, which I think the quarantine times of the pandemic were, those can shape us as well. So absolutely kids, kids who went through that period, young kids who went through that period, have a very big bunch of baggage probably to unpack, depending on the health of their grown ups. So, you know, what I really want people to know, though, is no matter how hard it got. So in the world of adverse childhood experiences, if you have seen the list of the 10 really adverse things that impact children's development in a negative way, so much so that they create physical health conditions, heart problems, cancer, diseases like diabetes in your childhood, you can still have resilience and overcome that and have an adult life that is rich. And that's really my key messages. You're not stuck with what you grew up with. There is recovery. There is change. Such a good message. Yeah, you can't control what happened to you, but you can give yourself the gift of doing that deep work and, you know, working toward flourishing for yourself and for those that you get to interact with. And it's brave work. It's courageous work. And it takes people to walk alongside us. So what are some of the common challenges, though, that you feel like people might face when they're trying to make these changes in their lives? And how do you help them overcome those? Goodwin, and this this isn't a universal in terms of childhood across cultures, and I just want to be clear about that, that different different cultures, different countries in the world have different values about children, different beliefs about children's competence, different resources to support children and young families. And so it isn't always the same. But I work primarily with families in the U .S. where what I see a lot of is we blow toddlerhood pretty badly. We're not good with toddlers. We're not good with people who are independent and want to tell us all about what they think, what they want and how they're feeling. And we tend to give them messages. We indulge that their emotions are overwhelming. What they want is wrong and they don't they're not understandable. They can't be understood. And that is a very frustrating set of messages for someone whose whole goal every moment of its waking day is to communicate. This is who I am. This is what I'm about. Look at me, see me for who I am. And we're just like, I'm sorry, what? And so that place of not having growing up to be an adult who is not self -confident and relaxed how about I'm feeling and the fact that it may be different from how you're feeling, what I want and being OK with asking for it, even if I get told no. Or God forbid I get told yes. And what it is that I'm thinking, what my opinions are, what I understand the world to be, my stories about life and myself and you. And if I can't be comfortable and feel safe expressing that that's who I am uniquely me, I'm a single point on the map, one datum, you know, then I can't hardly let you be that either. And that is the fundamental place where a lot of relationships go awry is that I don't really know who I am. I don't really know how to express all of myself in an authentic way. And so I can't believe that you're also that you're authentic because you're in the same stick that I'm in probably. And so we from the beginning don't feel seen and don't feel like we can communicate ourselves. Yeah, it's good. I'm sure in the work that you do, you get to see people transform and overcome all kinds of things. And so do you have any story that's really, you know, been meaningful to you about somebody's successful, you know, overcoming of obstacles in their own lives? And I'd be curious to know, were there any key factors that related to how they overcame with your help? I, what is called to mind immediately is a woman I know who really heard that message of who you were when you were 15 months old and first were out walking around and taking in the world and expressing yourself as you. That person really was told that she wasn't OK. That person came away with the message that it's not OK to be who I am. And I and and she came to a place of saying, I will do that, I will be myself. And if it means that I have to separate myself from some people that I've been close to for a long time in my life, then I'm going to do that until I can be myself with them, until I can speak in my voice. And so she basically just sort of covered up the page in her address book that had all of her family members on it and just did not interact with them for a while. Until she felt that she could go there and say, this is who I am. And it wouldn't matter how they reacted to it. That was the most amazing transformation I've seen. And it was a difficult one. And here's the resilience news story. She was able to reconnect with those family members and build really positive relationships with them before a couple of them died, before her parents were gone. And so she is back in relationship with those people. But she couldn't do it as long as she wasn't being anybody. In particular, yeah, that's whatever she thought would please them. And so it's such hard work and such difficult choices, but that's the work with a capital T and a capital W, isn't it? Yes, and it's worth it, you know, we're social beings. Yeah, it's absolutely so worth it. We do need support and it's hard to find when you're making a whole different change. You know, I think about people I've known who've been in a cult, for example, and then when they don't toe the line or they leave, they get shunned and they lose people. But they have to do that deep, hard work of saying, what is it about me? You know, how was I gaslit? And like, you know, it's hard to come out of it when you don't have the support while you're doing the work. And that can be really hard. Do you have any tips for people who are having to, for example, cut off family members who are maybe abusive in various ways, physically or sexually or, you know, all kinds of abuse that could happen in a family or coming out of a cult and, you know, making those changes while you need people? Have you had to walk through that with anyone else or anything similar? And if so, what advice would you give them on how to find new relationships that support them? I think that's such a wonderful perspective to take on this, because sometimes that that walk gets really hard. I think that I've moved through places in my life like that where what I had to do was simply walk away from connections that had proven to be, if not in a classic sense, toxic, then hurtful to me and unsupportive of my well -being, my joy, my productivity in life. And I actually I was involved in a spiritual community for a while where the charismatic leader, I wouldn't have called it a cult, but it had a charismatic leader for sure. And she and I really replicated some dynamics of my birth family, some of the trauma dynamics of my birth family, some of the painful interactions. And so I had to get to the point where I could see it. It was a healing for me to get to the point where I could see, oh, I see what this is. I've done this before. I've done this dance before and this is here to teach me. This is like a new lens on something I'm familiar with. And so it took a friend. I think it's so helpful to build relationships with the people who see you and who can be compassionately honoring of your humanity when you're completely falling apart. Those kind of connections are so vital when facing something difficult. And it was a good friend who just was a mirror for me and said, you can walk away from this. You're you're a grown up now. You're not the child who can't leave. You can you can go take care of yourself and you're strong enough to do that. And so I did. And that's not the only experience that I have with people becoming connected to someone who is amazing, a charismatic person who is amazing. It's easy to do and it's easiest to do if we don't know who we are. If I don't have a strong sense of myself as someone who has her own ideas and her thoughts and her opinions, feelings and emotions that are unique to me and a set of things that I'm looking for in the world, things that I want that make me what I feel, what I think and what I want makes me a unique package. Ain't nobody else like that. And if everybody knew that with safety and with comfort and could relax into that, we would be a whole different kind of world. I believe we would. And yeah, I mean, we're sort of always talking about here on this podcast is our differences are beautiful and wonderful. And if we were all the same, how boring. You know, it's springtime here where I live in Silicon Valley and I love seeing all the diversity of just flowers in my neighborhood. And you can see one rose on a rose bush and it's slightly unique from every other rose on the same rose bush with the same color. And that beautiful diversity in the creation around us, it, you know, brings on wonder to my brain and my body and in humanity as well. And and it's hard. You know, I have three teenagers and the teenagers can be particularly challenging in human development where especially like eighth grade, you know, I have two 15 year old twins. They were 14 last year. And eighth grade in particular feels like this time where you just want to belong. You want to be like everybody else. Like you want to be unique, but you don't at the same time. And so, yeah, I think when you get in environments like especially a spiritually abusive one or a toxic one in that way, that can really do a lot of damage to us. It could take a while to get out because you might have some good feelings in that group while at the same time you don't feel free to be yourself. And so thank God you had a friend that helped you know that it's OK to walk away and find a healthy space. Thank you for sharing that very vulnerably. And you know, here's the thing with we if if in my community of choice for spiritual nurture, however, I define that I go to a Bible church or I go to a temple or I go to a center for spiritual living or, you know, someplace that seems obscure to mainstream Christians, it doesn't really matter as long as I am accepted and loved there as a unique individual, a unique incarnation of spirit, a unique manifestation of God's creativity, however kind of language you put to it. I am a pinpoint of creation. I am one data point of creation and I am as changing and as different as the roses on the bushes and the, you know, the cycles and the seasons of this planet. We're all in a creative process that is about change and movement. And so here we are. We're doing it. We are and it's beautiful and it's it's something to celebrate. And the more we let the rose bushes be themselves and not try to make them tulips or carnations, the more they get to be who they are. Right. And that's just that's really nice. But you've written quite a bit. You've written something called the resilient mindset. Give us a little bit of overview of what you're talking about. Is that right? The resilient mindset. Is that the name of one of your books? No, it is an article. Maybe. Are you just talking about possibly maybe that's what it is. Yes. But you talk about resilience. Right. How can people have more of a resilient mindset when it seems like it's just one hit after another? It's COVID. It's family issues. It's your grades in school. You know, your best friend broke up with you as a friend or I mean, like, how do you stay resilient when it just feels like there's a tsunami wave after wave after wave hitting you? It feels to me like the two keys are it sounds almost I'm trying to say it, but gratitude is one of them. And the other is to recognize that in addition to having adverse experiences in our life, we have positive ones. And it's easiest to talk about our adverse experiences. We get a lot of attention. That's another dynamic that's not necessarily healthy in relationships that we give each other attention for complaining about the hard stuff, complaining about how difficult everything is, complaining about the things that have gone, quote, wrong. And we also have moments of utter bliss and joy and great things happen. And somebody passes you, a stranger passes you in the mall and says, my God, your hair looks great. I mean, you just you have the positive experiences, too. We just don't tend to perseverate on them. We don't talk them to death like we do all the things that are a problem right now. I am in oh, gosh, I think I'm about nine weeks now into healing a broken femur. That's right. Yeah. Which is like a big bone for anybody to break. But for an old lady in my my stage of life is like, that's a really big deal to break my femur. And I thought, you know, I still think I'm thirty five in my mind. So I thought I got this. You know, I'm going back to my full time RV lifestyle. I'm going to be driving. I'm going to be rolling out the hose and the power cord and doing all the things. I'm nuts. I'm absolutely nuts. And I can sit here and complain about all the pain and all the ways hard and the fact that I probably threw myself back into this too quickly. Or I can tell you about all the marvelous things that have happened because and through the pain and the disruption to my life and my plans about how things should go have been left by the roadside like a hundred times over the past nine weeks. And that's OK, because there's still great stuff happening. There's still positive experiences for me to blend with the adverse ones. And that's resilience right there. So good. It is true that our brains can hold the hard and the good all at once. I think there's circles in life or people in life that forces to choose to only live in one. But the reality is life happens. And acts of God happen that are out of our control. There's and there's mistakes we make and we mess up our own lives like we do things, too. And so but just to jump over it and not sit in the pain for a little bit to learn the lesson doesn't it doesn't heal our femur, but it also doesn't heal our minds and souls. I have a metaphor. I'm studying in my religious, spiritual tradition and philosophy, which is religious science or the Centers for Spiritual Living. I'm studying about, you know, if if the divine, whatever we think of as the unifying principle, the God stuff of the universe, if that is omnipresent, everywhere present, then everything that happens is God is being created in the moment as a divine thing. And so I've developed this metaphor for myself that my life is like being a really clever, hardworking little beetle who's tending two square meters of bark on the side of a big tree in an endless, infinite forest. And I beetle around my little two square meters of bark all day long, very happily, making it the best little square bark any beetle could tend and making good things happen for the tree because of my little big bark. And sometimes there's giant storms that pound me with rain and knock me off my little square and the winds blow and leaves fly by and I get hit. And I think it's a bad thing. I think it's terrible. But what I don't understand is the forest needs the rain.

I been there before in terms of running that many miles consecutively day to day to day to day when i was wanted to fifty miles every single day for almost eighty consecutive days. So what's the big deal running twenty six miles for seven days in a row but the big deal is the fact attorney seven continents and so for me. It was more about not as much the training. 'cause that was a given but it was about the rat race in between and it was about sleep deprivation. It was about nutrition while flying was about recovery at thirty five thousand feet no sitting in a seat for twelve hours you know and then get often go run another marathon so trying to figure that all out it was about the weather. Temperatures in climates that we were in antarctica and it was whatever ten degrees and then back plane six hours later. You're in south. Africa running at eighty five degrees and your body's calling. Yeah not a lot of time to acclimate gave. You gotta figure that all out in advance. i mean i think anyone who serious about it does the training. I mean the running. I don't mean to be little it. It wasn't easy.

The Chester A. Poling
"Today. I'm going to do something a little different for this installment of your next dive normally tried to take you to a dive destination where we talk about the trip from a number of different perspectives. The travel the lodging the dive operator. Oh yeah the diving. Now we've been around the world. But today i'm going to focus on one particular dive that is almost in our backyard. It is one of the most iconic dives here in new england and that is the wreck of the chester. Polling off gloucester mass. The chester polling was a coastal tanker. That sank in a brutal storm on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven. The tanker had just left everett massachusetts and was bound for newington new hampshire. That information is pretty consistent in the research but there is other conflicting information about where she had been. And what cargo she delivered for example some documentation said she had previously delivered kerosene to new jersey while others indicated that the heating oil was delivered to everett mass. I would suspect that delivery to everett mass to be more likely always interesting when you Doing research to get this type of inconsistency now the chester polling was bill in nineteen thirty four at mariners harbor new york by united dry docks incorporated it was originally in the plattsburgh sacconi somewhere along the line at also known as the mobile albany before getting renamed as the chester polling at the time of its sinking it was owned by the motor vessel polling brothers and that was number one inc. I wasn't able to find who was actually named after but obviously some member of the family. So that's a little bit of history about the ship now on january tenth. Nineteen seventy seven capital captain. Bert charles burgess was in command. The forecast for that day was for thirty five mile an hour winds along with fifteen to twenty foot seas. the chester polling chester. A polling left. Everett are left everett at six thirty. A m well as we all know. Forecast can be wrong. The winds built up to fifty miles per hour and to seize goddess highs. Thirty feet facing the mounting sees captain. Burge's tried to get more stability by adding more ballast but at ten thirty a m a thirty foot waves smashed into the tanker and broke it in half the captain called for abandoning the ship. Six of the seven members of the crew were saved. I believe it was the cook jail. Derosa from providence rhode island who perished the sir. The stern section of the chester polling came to rest off easter point gloucester originally in about seventy five feet of water with the bow section sinking about four miles off of eastern point in about one hundred ninety feet of water subsequent winter. Storms move the stern section to its present location about eight hundred yards off of eastern point about ninety five feet of water. I think the bottom might be a little bit deeper than that. However the stern section of the chester polling is what some folks call hollywood wreck sitting upright and is probably the most popular wreck dive off. Cape ann as that areas known. Now i- i dove the chester polling way back in july two thousand and five. It was my fortieth dive and a double dip on. The polling was part of my advanced open water class. These dyes would constitute my deep and wreck advanced. Open water dives. At that time. I was still diving in a seven. Millimeter wetsuit with the appropriate gloves and hood. I use the standard aluminum. Eighty tank with nighthawks. Thirty two. I can still remember the anxiety that had doing. The first real wreck dive in the northeast but once in the water what an amazing dive the visibility that day was thirty feet and my max step was at eighty five. Even though it was july the water temperature on iraq was fifty degrees. It was incredible to move along the deck and reach the mid mid ship section where. The tanker broken half absolutely mesmerizing but with an aluminum. Eighty you don't get much bottom time and after about fifteen minutes we headed back to the up line and after are appropriate safety. Stop we climb back aboard the boat and got ready to do it again. Total dive time was twenty six minutes the second dive that day was just as spectacular and pretty much the same profile. Let me just say in a wetsuit. It can get pretty chilly. I didn't go back to the chester polling until august. Two thousand nine and that was my last trip there. It was my two hundred and forty ninth dive but this time i did it in a dry suit and hope to get some good video of iraq. I still dove aluminum. Eighty the dive was just as i remembered and just as exciting visibility again was thirty feet. And my max. Depth was eighty two with and the bottom temperature. That day was forty eight degrees still very cold but so much better in a dry suit again however with an aluminum eighty. You just. Don't get much bottom time especially if your task loading like shooting video so my recommendation is that if you are planning to die the polling you might want to consider a little bit bigger tank something like a steal one hundred or going to doubles. I know that i wouldn't consider going back with anything less than a steel one hundred tank. How do you get to the chester polling back. Then we use cape and divers but they closed up several years ago and recently the dive boat cape and diver to was purchased by several guys from boston. An air now operating regularly chart regular charters again became an diverse to is a forty five foot. us coastguard registered dive vessel. It is spacious and right now with limited divers on board you get plenty of room to get ready and dive but you don't get a lot of but you don't get a lot of time because you don't have a lot of time to get ready because the is only a few minutes from the dock so be prepared one thing. Different about northeast wreck diving. Is that as a diver. You need to bring all your gear that includes tanks weights everything. It's not like diving at a resort. Don't get caught short by not being prepared with all your own stuff now. Here's an interesting element. That i discovered during my research. It appears that in nineteen sixties. The chester polling was length lengthened. By maybe twenty six or so feet. That doesn't sound like much. But at the time of her sinking her length with two hundred and eighty two feet so that lengthening was about ten percent of the original ship's length could this have been a contributing factor for the ship splitting in half. I wonder so if you happen to be in the area of cape ban in gloucester massachusetts. You might wanna look up cape and diver to and head out for a double dip on the chester a

But i i just really like saying pegasus. Mon synopsis skirt wasn't important. But i really like seeing them. Yeah like i mean. I like basically illegal a lot of things in this episode. Like probably too much. I'm mainly because i was surprised that were there. Were addressing some trauma. I'm happy to see some digital from the pendulum dead. Still show up. That's really cool. I'm india pigs on hickerson swollen and also. I'm just really happy that we didn't take the time to sexualize angel month. No reason yeah like. That's that makes sense that we didn't but i was just surprised that we didn't because i know the the show has shown me that they can sexualize digital infinia. This phone all looking forward to both mom. I hope that the chill so it gets cold goddess. We don't go yeah. I heard that we just say oh. She's really powerful of all except she's as powerful as she is beautiful. But that's about as like as far as i'd go into talking about her appearance. I'm sure that there exist for that and that's fine. I'm i'm not that interesting. But i think it being part of the show is a little weird and the slap out as being really gross to me..

"Great when we're finally addressing what like the character called hickory has the crest of he carry like. We're just good. I'm glad that way just talking about the gigantic like glowing elephant in the room. Thank you and then at this. Like i had like this. We'd like a theory that so we have tamdan behind. Doc nightman right. I mean i i actually had melodrama right okay. Well we have like little town. We know that taiwanese. Now doc on and i was wondering if maybe that means terry moran is also a corrupted holy digital like that how he called angel on an old friend like maybe a debbie mon was actually slash angel clavet's angel on or even like Slash jamal and they did it. But i just had that we've theory and it's probably. We're probably not going to work. But i really don't think that debbie mon will ever be mentioned again. Only because you know the majority of the cost weren't even there but like you know everyone did cool angel like his old friend did have some something happening there so it wouldn't be surprised if like later on because and says hey a panama on you okay. What she your best friend diane. He's like who's my best friend because he has memories and she's just like you know. Debbie monitor best friend and then paddle get some trauma because he like you know that whole thing. But i just bought if what if y'all what if we did we referenced. Everyone existing again. I don't think that would happen. But imagine you've like you know because we have all those holy digital on. Debbie definitely seemed to know things i m. i don't know i just i. I want something to come from that. Because i think the most excited week audit that chunk of episodes was the idea that debbie mon is somebody i don't know but that's just how i feel anyway. So tomlin says she will no longer be afraid and she went hold back..

"Image of what happened to me. Yes that's that's that's just what happens there on you thanks anyway. Let's do that for me every time. He's like somewhere being years ago. When people around me hate it i that i thought that was just my thing was like. I didn't think anyone would actually start doing it. Then he's happy way back when you were covering hamer's i thought that you was way too funny. It's a it's a good thing and every time something's halfway done you know like download an episode anything. I always have a holloway. They mentioned the words for the longest time or all people who like yeah. I'll do that so it's really funny is my mom and i will do that. And we'll just do the harmony and it's like best way of dealing with that but anyway i digress. Did you gross. He added that there are a lot of like things like that. Like i thought of it one and then it just left my brain so the answer is going to be good. And i'm probably gonna remember like in five minutes. Interim no will. I wanted to get grenade okay. I'm gonna full my own. I'm going to do it. I'm gonna picard. Works pecan or people in the audience but yes anyway so yes to digital on so yes. She's having some anxiety and she's saying that she remembers defeat him anymore and then she was tooth bisi reborn but she was. If you came back wrong she was trapped inside the shell of not mon. So basically what. I'm getting from this is that we have divvy mon. Orbs millennial somebody forcing her into being dark nine on and that's terrifying to her and it's terrifying to me actually that's is a terrifying concept and she's just afraid of evolving because she's concerned shot of evil that made her be docked on remained inside her and that is a complete valid like. That's a really valid concern. Yeah sure is again. We're back to tail modest trans. Oh i remember the other song by the way If anyone says type home country it's just mama after with you. How i was. I was gonna do Whispers of the heart the the. Yeah because i can do that. Like a couple of versus of that in japanese concrete. Well all that spain in my head the entire like wake has been the japanese version of. You're welcome from moana. And it's so funny because he just says you're welcome in japanese and in you're welcome in english and it's he goes though it she must. You're welcome it's so good. It's so good the like in the whole thing. I still to the entirety of The little mermaid songs that appeared in kingdom hearts to the japanese soundtrack and listen to while. I biked finagle lawyers each with school but anyway this episode still exists the. That's my recommendation for this week. Is to look up at disney songs in japanese especially. You're welcome because if especially we know. Japanese it is a great like it's just. It's such a good translation. I wanna rewatching japanese because all the songs in it. I've listened to and they just really good translations they're not like for me and doc- suba shooting so good i love it. I don't know know she's brilliant. Wonderful brilliant anywhere anyway so we have to carry announces that they're out cave and there's an another evil digital presence because she has bobby sense and captured komo damone and then the little thank held a komo. One makes is like my favorite things he goes..

"Digital indeed have personalities like the digital felt like they were on characters in this episode elegant wannabe on almost feel like they try counterparts. Rather than what we've seen in colin so far even in the original adventure year and definitely. We've done a an argument like food in this show. That has done very little gidley food porn for four deji amount so far. It's just a random fruit media. I actually dig the random fruit. It's pretty neat. It's it's digital world nonsense in a way we haven't gotten a bit But yeah i don't know i. This is an interesting start to the show. But god. I wish we were just doing dark ocean again. Yemi to the whole tunnel. Just like duck ocean. Please not not just literally. It could be dark oceania at dark ocean. But it's not the darker ocean though light. Having depression was a really big deal for me. And i am sad that we don't actually have that. Now yeah maybe maybe. Maybe we'll go somewhere that mitt knowing him. Maybe not like yeah. We were set up for going that direction if we wanted to do some of the plot threads there and then we're not gonna. It's a shame but so suddenly the group becomes surrounded by curium on who i think we've seen like basically fifteen episodes ago. In the ultra spencer terry mode episodes. I think and then the cost exit. The cabinet defied and then tells one holy ring goes off and she can detect a new enemy and its major mon so volts to gray on and he gets his full animation and then touchy like don't talk because of course i am because giving up with physics. It's fine and then be among says she wants to evolve but sort like doesn't let her and then she tells tashi to watch africa security moan and says that evolving too big a form makes them bigger targets particularly moan and this kind of like took me by surprise i was like whoa we a we sorta doing a think. She is tonci just impulsive. This is this is cool. I like this yeah. I appreciate that we seem to have moved past. Were doing things because the plot demands it. The writers maybe care about it now that they're writing original content for minute and i'm here for it like like i said we're doing kind of a soft reboot if i am going to cut some slack with stuff that has happened for the last twenty episodes. That's fine. I will say this is not a episode. I would say it's better than last week on but we're coming along we have. We have a plot happening. We have a digital mon. Who is the leader..

"In translation this time covering digital adventure colon twenty twenty episode thirty five the glowing andrew woman i may and of course i'm joined by two lovely ladies who have won again decided to on me with their presence so first of all i have eighty and quinton a fairly well my good sir own onto the show. The episode starts up with like an underwater like additional the usual background music. And it's so catchy. Like i from the start. I'm just enjoying this episode on the very basis of just this remixed background music that we have just the same choon sort of as the usual like background music. We have but it has that sort of under the same sort of shell fame from like you know little mermaid or something. I don't know that it is it. I love it. I actually really dig that. We're going to do more deep dark. Water with hikari like almost like we have a metaphor the show for once. Yeah unlike this and if they ever decide to do the doctor shen. I just feel like that. I could almost do that. Okay but that's from this point like we can still go bad from this point like i'm not i'm i'm more optimistic but i'm still pessimistic like the the the glosses in full. It's not half empty. It's just off nothing else. But anyway so i'm being honest that's like it for a lot of this show is very much just like that. That point Worse i guess because it has gone bad but anyway we have a game on a bearman are riding on top of the komodo on and arguments having a great time. But he's hungry. And then i'm about to complain about something about how how. They able to breathe underwater or do anything underwater but then the show does a complete at mall of of them. Which is they just a mainly the kind as explain. They will like hey. It's really good that marina. Jamal gave us the power to disregard physics. And i'm just doing..
