A highlight from SEC Is Reprimanded by Government Accountability Office (And It Could Lead to Lawsuits)
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Wednesday, November 1st, and today we are talking about the SEC being reprimanded by another government body. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends. Well, as I mentioned earlier this week, I am heading off later today actually for around five days. So the breakdown will be taking basically its first break ever. And so what I'm going to try to do today is get through as many of the big stories that are floating around as possible. The most important one I think in many ways is this reprimand of the SEC by the Government Accountability Office. But before we get to that, let's wrap up our coverage of SPF's testimony. Sam's cross -examination finished up on Tuesday with U .S. Assistant Attorney Danielle Sassoon getting specific about what Sam knew as FTX came crashing down. The questioning for the day began with an inquiry into Sam's cozy relationship with regulators and government officials in the Bahamas. Sam continually denied knowledge of the details. This included him initially claiming to not remember inviting the Prime Minister of the Bahamas to a private dinner with Bill Clinton and Tony Blair during an FTX conference. This struck most observers as a very bizarre thing to claim to forget. And as Carly Riley from overpriced JPEGs put it, that was a classic Sam moment that just embodies the way he answers everything where you're pulling teeth. Even for things that are benign, you can just admit that you invited the Prime Minister to dinner. Now, eventually, Sam admitted that there had been, quote, something like a dinner with them and Sam quibbling over whether or not there had been food. Sam was asked whether he offered to pay off the Bahamas' national debt of around $11 .6 billion, which he also couldn't remember. The upshot of this line of questioning was that Sam admitted that after FTX collapsed, he had offered to allow Bahamian residents to withdraw their funds in preference to other customers. Sam's defense had addressed this point at length earlier in their case, presenting a witness who testified that Bahamian regulators had compelled some of Sam's actions after the bankruptcy. Moving on, Sassoon asked Sam what he knew about customer funds being spent by Alameda via their subsidiary, North Dimension. She pinned Sam down to acknowledge clearly that, by either September or October of 2022, he was aware that customer funds had been used for venture investments and expenses. He carefully avoided using the wording that customer funds had been spent. Sam claimed that he thought this had been permissible, but he didn't think it had been happening prior to September. He admitted that this use of customer funds for investments was not disclosed. Sassoon confirmed with Sam that he had been CEO of Alameda when North Dimension had been set up for the purposes of receiving customer deposits. Sam claimed he didn't recall giving directions to Alameda employees to hold that money for the benefit of FTX customers, nor segregate the deposits from other Alameda funds. Springing her trap, Sassoon confirmed that at the same time that he knew that no protections were in place, Sam had made representations before Congress about the safeguarding of customers' assets. Now, establishing Sam's frame of mind when he claims to have discovered that there was an $8 billion hole in Alameda's balance sheet, Sassoon asked, You didn't call in your deputies and employees and say, who spent $8 billion? Sam said that he had only asked Carolyn Ellison, then CEO of Alameda, how it had happened. He also confirmed that no one was fired for spending $8 billion of customer funds. Moving back to June of 2022, Sassoon asked Sam about what he did after he discovered the bug in the accounting system, which he claims had caused Alameda's liabilities to be overstated by $8 billion in the fiat AT account. Sam testified that he was told by FTX engineering executives Gary Wong and Nishad Singh that, quote, they were busy and I should stop asking questions because it was distracting. Sassoon confirmed that his, quote, supervisees told you to stop asking questions. Sam had testified that he briefly believed that Alameda could be on the verge of bankruptcy and that he had canceled a flight to Washington to deal with the problem. Sam was asked whether he remembered Adam Yedidiah telling him after the bug was fixed that Alameda still owed $8 billion. After Sam evaded answering the question numerous times, the judge snapped, demanding that Sam put an answer on the record. Sam said he didn't remember being told on that day, but that he was eventually told. Sassoon circled back to testimony Sam had given on Monday, where he claimed that certain Alameda payments could be characterized as margin trades, specifically repaying loans to external lenders. Sam acknowledged that billions of dollars worth of venture investments in mining firm Genesis Digital Assets, K5 Partners, and Anthropic AI were not margin trades on FTX. Sam confirmed that he had directed most of these large -dollar investments made by Alameda. Sassoon used this information to discuss the state of the Alameda balance sheet in July after lenders had begun recalling their loans. She noted that the balance sheet included all of these illiquid investments as long -term assets. The prosecution pulled up a tweet which said that Alameda had quote, "...returned most of our loans by now. Sam was forced to admit that it did not correctly state most of our third -party loans." Winding up her cross -examination, Sassoon sought to establish that Sam had conspired with Caroline, Gary, and Nishad to commit wire fraud and money laundering. She played a segment of the audio recording of Caroline's final all -hands meeting at Alameda one more time for the jury. In that clip, Caroline was pressed by an employee to answer who knew about the use of customer funds. The employee said, "...I'm sure this wasn't just a YOLO thing, right?" Caroline responded, "...I guess I talked about it with Sam, Nishad, and Gary." After numerous objections, Sassoon finally landed on a question about the conspiracy that she was allowed to ask. She questioned whether Caroline, Gary, and Nishad were the ones involved in the decisions to spend FTX customer money by Alameda. Sam said no initially, but acknowledged that each of the co -conspirators had pled guilty and cooperated with the government. To close out, Sassoon presented a document written by Sam in late December 2022 after he had been arrested and released on bail. The document was a list of things Sam was mulling over as he stewed in his parents' home. It included a substantial section on Nishad, who had not yet been charged by the DOJ. Sam noted that the complaints filed against Caroline and Gary had referred to three co -conspirators leaving Nishad out of the picture. Sam wrote, Sassoon left this document as her lasting impression for the jury. The document implied that Sam was well aware of the key participants in the crimes alleged. Afterwards, the defense led Sam through redirect questioning. Sam claimed that because his companies were private, he believed their disclosure requirements to customers were limited. Other than transparency disclosing liquidation orders, Sam said, The answer seemed to avoid the main issue of whether FTX had a duty to disclose its financial peril to customers. Sam was able to give his long and complete explanation of how repaying lenders could be considered a margin trade. His explanation was that quote, Sam also addressed his poor recollection of events. He said that he had conducted over 50 interviews in the wake of the FTX collapse and couldn't recall every single statement he made to a journalist during that period. Still, maybe the most telling statement from Sam came when he was asked why he had testified that he had not spent the $8 billion in customer funds. He responded, Good lord, the word salad. We'll come back to that point in just a moment. Anyways, with Sam's testimony over, the defense rested their case. The prosecution declined to present a rebuttal case, so the evidence in the trial was over. Lawyers held a charging conference with the judge to finalize the substance of jury instructions. The party settled how the law surrounding the seven charges of fraud and money laundering will be explained to the jury before they begin their deliberations. In a promising sign for the prosecution, the judge ruled that he would instruct the jury to find Sam guilty of defrauding customers if they believed that he had misrepresented FTX rather than strictly if he had misappropriated funds. The defense had asked for the jury to be instructed that British law governs the FTX terms of service. The judge quickly cut down that argument, noting that, Today, both parties are expected to deliver their closing arguments, followed by jury instructions from the judge. The jury could have the case in their hands for deliberation as soon as tomorrow morning. And of course, if Sam is found guilty, he likely won't be sentenced for several months once a hearing can be scheduled. I want to turn it over again to Carly Riley, the host of Overpriced JPEGs, to give the sum up. First, on the prosecutor, Daniel Sassoon, she wrote, Now on Sam's performance, she wrote, I think that served him well because he seemed a little bit more likable, at least. But ultimately, she summed up, And in what I think is the most telling statement and reflects what I was saying yesterday, in my argument that Sam ultimately just never viewed any asset or any company that he was associated with as anything other than one big pool for him to do whatever he wanted Carly said, The drama, man.

I believe it's Wednesday, October 18th. I could be wrong. Who's to say in these topsy -turvy times? But let me say that we've got a real treat for you today. Coming up in a few minutes, Naomi Wolf will be on the program. I say it over and over. She was in my class at Yale, and it gives me great joy to see what a hero she has been. So we're going to talk to her in a few minutes. In hour two, we get to talk to someone else who was at Yale when I was there. Can anything good come out of Yale? Not much, but every once in a blue moon, you get a Naomi Wolf or a John Zmierak. So we've got John Zmierak in hour two talking about Israel, which makes me mention right now that we were doing a fundraiser with the Alliance Defending Freedom. Many of you know that. And they asked us, no, because of what's happening in Israel right now, raise money for Israel. And we're doing that. So we want to exhort you to go metaxas talk dot com. And we do exhort you to go to metaxas talk dot com right now and to give as generously as you can. They desperately need your help. They are doing all kinds of things with the money that you give. The banner at Metaxas talk dot com says Israel at war. It's desperate. It's desperate. They need your help now. You can imagine what it would be like to be living in Israel now. They're elderly living there that we're providing meals for them, emergency medical supplies. They're in a war zone now. And so they just need our help. So I'm going to give you the phone number as well. But the banner is at the top of Metaxas talk dot com. Israel at war. It says Israel at war. But the phone number is 800 -235 -7775. 800 -235 -7775. Chris, I think I mentioned this the other day, but I've often said that one of the things that I can offer is my time. I have very, very little time. But if somebody wants to spend an evening with me, have dinner, you know, you you pay for the dinner, you pick the restaurant and it can be just me and Chris in New York or it could be just me with you could bring 10 of your friends, whatever you that's all on you, because it's my time that I'm offering. But I get around the country and if we can work it out, anybody who gives fifteen thousand dollars to any of these causes right now, of course, we're raising money for Israel. But if you want to give fifteen thousand dollars tax deductible donation, anything at that amount or more, I'd be delighted to find an evening. My evenings have gotten dramatically scarce, but I'm still trying to do this. And it's week I was in San Antonio and had dinner with a couple that had given to CSI some months back. So it's always a joy to meet those of you who care about what I care about. I should also mention that. Well, the banner, of course, is at the top of Eric.

It's just it's I've never looked. I think I've said this before. I'm often busy and people say, Eric, you're too busy. And I normally say it's OK. It's OK. You know, I'm not working in a coal mine. I'm not working. I'm grateful for what I get to do. But lately I have been too busy lately. I have been tired lately. I've been doing way, way too much. And this is a season where I am doing too much. God is carrying me through, but it's been tough, I got to say. So today I'm in Augusta, Georgia. Today I fly to Houston. I'm speaking at a prayer breakfast tomorrow. And I don't love speaking at prayer breakfast because they're typically in the morning. Yeah, I'm not a morning guy. You're not really guy, which isn't bad. Well, I mean, I wake up eventually. I have been doing that most of my life, but early in the morning, you know, but I'm going to be in Conroe, Texas, tomorrow morning at a prayer breakfast. It's called Judge Max Prayer Breakfast. I get to meet Judge Mack. I don't know who Judge Mack is. Sounds like a figure out of a Cormac McCarthy novel. So I'm kind of scared. I don't want to meet Judge. He's hosting the breakfast. Is he cooking, too? It's it's his prayer breakfast. There's going to be 1100 people there and they're going to have to listen to a highly caffeinated Eric Metaxas tomorrow morning in Conroe, Texas.

A highlight from Gold Vs. Bitcoin & The Worst Recession In History | Debate With Peter Schiff
"We're six days into the war. In fact, tomorrow morning will mark seven days since the Hamas next attacked Israel and effectively this war started. And over this week, we've had investors in markets starting to panic more and more and more about the implications of what's going to happen in the war. We've had the gold price go up. We've had the oil price go up. We've had the bond prices go down. And it feels like what we need to do is we need to start protecting our portfolios for something of a prolonged war in the Middle East. And that's what we're going to be speaking about today. Today on banter, I've got a good friend of the channel Peter Schiff with us, and he's going to tell us what he thinks is going to happen to the American economy, especially now in the light of the war and how he is positioning his trade. So today's a big day. Let's get into it, guys. And we're back. The human casualties keep mounting up the markets feeling very, very, very, very nervous. And I thought today what we would do is we just used today to understand how the biggest investors in the world are looking at this at this war. We had Paul Tudor Jones coming out earlier this week, I'll remind you. And he said that he's more nervous than he's ever been in his life about where the U .S. economy is. And he said he's increasing his allocation to gold and to Bitcoin. I wonder if our next guest, Peter Schiff, will be increasing his allocation to Bitcoin. Anyway, be that as it may listen, if you're not a subscriber to this channel yet, now's the best time to subscribe. Smash the subscribe button. Like this content if we get to twelve hundred likes at the end of this video. I've got a big surprise for you guys. So let's see if we can beat yesterday's yesterday. We've got thirteen hundred and fifty. Let's see if we can beat that. Also, remember, it's a Friday. Friday banters brought to you by our best sponsor, Nord VPN. I keep saying to you guys, if you are in crypto for three dollars and eight cents a month, you need to protect yourself. You need to be hiding your IP address. Look at this. If I'm surfing on the Internet, every single service provider that I'm surfing can see my IP address. That means I know exactly where I am. Western Cape, South Africa, then exactly where I am. They know who my service provider is. They know exactly how easy it is to hack me. Also, if you do get Nord and you protect your crypto for three dollars a month, you then add another three dollars every night and you can protect yourself from all the threats. And there are many, many, many, many threats. I mean, just look at this. There were fraudsters, Uniswap, the biggest decks in the world. I mean, how many times have you surfed and you got the fake Uniswap? Now, if you approve that, then effectively hackers are going to drain all your money from your wallet for three dollars a month. You can protect yourself from it and you can support the channel. So go ahead. Do it now. And listen, without any further ado, I want to get Peter Schiff onto the banter live with us today. Peter, welcome back to Crypto Banter. How are you, my friend? I'm OK. I'm OK. How are you guys? I think we're good under under the circumstances. Peter, I want to start off today's discussion with an interview that happened this week with Paul Tudor Jones, who, you know, is a very successful, renowned investor. I want to play you specifically something that he said. I want to get your comments about what he said on a day like today. Well, I think Israel, obviously it's a huge tragedy, but you have to put it in a larger geopolitical context, which is we now have possibly three theaters where we're going to have geopolitical challenges. We've got the Middle East and Israel, obviously the Ukraine and Russia, and then at some point down the road, Taiwan and China. So. It's a really I would say since certainly since I was born, it might be the most threatening and challenging geopolitical environment that I've ever seen, because you have. Four nuclear powers, three of whom are led by sociopaths and that would be China, Russia and North Korea. Obviously, those leaders have zero accountability, responsibility to anyone but themselves. And they have not an ounce of humanity in their bones because they regularly disappear, both their friends and their enemies. And then the fourth, Iran is led by someone who thinks God is talking to them and has a validly said that they want to remove from this earth a nation state with probably the most brilliant people ever assembled within a national boundary. So it's a really challenging environment. If you think about it too much, I want my lucky color to be invisible, right? It's it's it's a it's a it's a it's a very threatening times. So that is also happening at the same time the United States is probably in its weakest fiscal position since certainly World War Two with debt to GDP at one hundred and twenty two percent. So it's a really tough time for I think the moral voice of the world certainly been the leader since World War Two. It's a really difficult time. So he's very worried about this war and he's talking about it specifically. He's kind of saying that the U .S. is in the worst financial situation that it's ever been, the worst fiscal situation that it's ever been. And it's probably got war open on or potential wars open on a capital of France. What do you think of what he said? Do you think we are the worst financial situation that we've ever been in? Well, first of all, that's not what he said. He said that this is the worst shape we've been in since World War Two, meaning he believes that we were in worse shape during World War Two than we are now. And he's wrong. We're in way worse shape now than we were at the end of World War Two, because even though we had run up a bunch of debt to fight that war, we had the capacity to pay it back.

A highlight from Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review (Episode 26) 10.06.23
"Welcome to the Mike Gallagher show week in review. What a week. It has been a huge breaking news week. The ouster of Kevin McCarthy, crime running rampant in the streets of America. Again, this historic defeat for speaker of the house. Kevin McCarthy has led to tons of drama and turmoil and teeth chattering. I didn't like it. A lot of people didn't like it. Kevin McCarthy has been doing a lot of good stuff. He's been doing a pretty solid job, but Matt Gaetz led members of the GOP to unseat a speaker for the first time in American history. Well, think about what we saw today. 4%, 4 % decided they were so morally superior, so intellectually pure, so patriotically better that they would side with the Democrats. And that's what they did in order to defeat the entire Republican house caucus. 96 % of the Republicans voted for McCarthy. 4 % voted against him. From my position as a long time Republican activist, they're traitors. All eight of them should in fact be primaried. They should all be driven out of public life. What they did was to go to the other team to cause total chaos. Former house speaker Newt Gingrich was Sean Hannity last night on Fox news. There is a lot of anger and I understand the anger. I really do. I appreciate the frustration and the near rage that a lot of people are in, but I wanna give you another point of view, something to consider. This is breaking. You know, Democrats like Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi enjoyed cushy, luxurious, what they called hideaway offices in the congressional building where these offices are housed. You know what the first thing, the first official act that acting speaker Patrick McHenry did last night was kick Nancy Pelosi out of her office. Served her with an eviction notice saying we're keying the locks tomorrow morning, get out. They're also doing the same. It's being reported moments ago to Steny Hoyer. House Republican leadership, the new House Republican leadership has kicked Steny Hoyer out of his capital hideaway office. Now here's my question. Why didn't Kevin McCarthy do that? Why did it take Patrick McHenry to do that? In other words, this seems to be for me a metaphor as to what Matt Gaetz and the others are complaining about. This seems to me to be an example of the Uniparty. And the accusation of Kevin McCarthy, I don't think it's fair, I don't actually believe it, but I'm not gonna ignore what millions of people believe that Kevin McCarthy was part of the problem, part of the swamp, part of the Uniparty. Why did Kevin McCarthy allow Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer to have these nice, big, fat, cushy offices? You know why? Because he was all about reaching across the aisle, compromise, we gotta get things done, we've got a slim majority, and I understand all that. Listen, governance is hard. Legislating is very complicated. There's no easy answer to this. But to me, it is a stunning, stunning story that Patrick McHenry, Mr. Slam Down That Gavel, to try to break it into a million pieces, his first act was to kick Nancy Pelosi out of her cushy office. Isn't that something? Don't you think that's profound? Doesn't that let the Matt Gaetz supporters say, see? That could have been done months ago.

It's before the federal government is spending billions on infrastructure but cuts could be coming to some transportation related programs in Maryland. Here's WTOP's Dan Ronan. Maryland Governor Wes Moore reportedly is proposing deep cuts to the state transportation spending as a way of tackling a multi -billion dollar long term budget shortfall. The Washington Post reports the six -year plan calls for an eight percent cut in annual budgets to all of the transportation agencies including highway, transit, ports and airport agencies and the Motor Vehicle Administration. The budget cuts would slow the future highway construction, reduce public transportation service and make parking at BWI Airport more expensive. He's expected to announce the plan next week. Dan Ronan, WTOP News. Don't be alarmed tomorrow morning if you see emergency vehicles near the Virginia Square GMU metro stop on the Orange Line. Metro and emergency responders will be holding a response drill at the station from the time the system is closed tomorrow morning until 2 p .m. The station will be closed until that drill is finished. This gives Metro crews an opportunity to make sure that first responders are prepared for emergencies. Also gives them a chance to test communications and response between Metro and the first responders. That means Orange Line trains will be bypassing Virginia Station GMU during the exercise. Shuttle buses will ferry riders between Ballston and Clarendon. It's 10 -06 and the rockfish population in Chesapeake Bay has been low for several years. Maryland Now is taking action that could lead to some new fishing restrictions. We hear that from WTOP's Nick Ionelli. The proposed limits on fishing, which will now be considered by Maryland state lawmakers, were just released by the state's Department of Natural Resources. They would limit fishing activity in the Chesapeake Bay in early May. April is already closed to targeting striped bass, known as rockfish, but the new restrictions would extend that period by eliminating the Maryland striped bass trophy season, which runs from the start of May through May 15th. The spawning success of bass striped has been below average for the past five years due in part to environmental factors such as warmer winters and low water flows. Nick Ionelli, WTOP News.

A highlight from The Sam Bankman-Fried Trial Begins - Everything You Need to Know
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me and LW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on guys? It is Tuesday, October 3rd. The SBF trial has begun. This is all the background that you need to know. Of course, before we get into all of that. If you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review. Or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on The Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello Breakers. As you can imagine, this is a fairly weird time for me. A year ago at this time, I was deep in the midst of planning FTX's second Super Bowl ad. And yet a month later, I had resigned, the company had declared bankruptcy, and the world had discovered a rotten core of fraud around Sam and his closest consigliaries. Now, I did a very long episode about the experience of the week of the collapse from the inside last November 14th. It was called Sam Bankman Fraud to give you a sense of how I felt about it. Since then, I've been covering the FTX bankruptcy and Sam's legal battles as I would any other crypto story. In other words, just part of the necessary cleanup of the last cycle, but ultimately something that is hopefully for the past and not for the future. When it comes to the trial, I've spent a long time deciding about how to approach it. The reality is, for the next five or six weeks or however long this takes, this is going to drown out a lot of other things that are happening in the space. I have to imagine that most products will choose not to launch during this time for fear of being outshined because everyone is just laser focused on this. The question then of course is how much time to give it. Is there a risk of over focusing on it? You bet. It's going to have lots of drama. But does it need to be covered? I think that the answer is also ultimately yes. This is something that has to get concluded for the industry to fully move on. It is in many ways an exorcism that just has to be done. And on top of that, I think that this trial and everything that surrounds it will have some impact in shaping how much the external world sees the crypto space as itself inherently fraudulent versus Sam as specifically fraudulent. So how is the breakdown going to cover this? Well, I talked to a lot of you listeners and the general request mirrored my own thoughts, which is to every few days do an update, sometimes with a guest discussion. This won't be then an everyday thing. At least there won't be some big feature every day. But you will get all the salient details as they come up. And with that in mind, I thought it would be valuable to try to create a bit of a definitive primer, something that if you haven't been paying attention at all, if you were barely watching last year, you could pick up and listen to and feel pretty well prepared to get into what you're going to see over the coming weeks. What that means is that today we're going to go over the charges, the rough timeline of events, the key witnesses, what we expect from the defense, the latest procedural news and info from the bankruptcy and the trial schedule. I don't think we'll have time to get into people's very strong feelings about Michael Lewis's book that just came out, but I imagine that that will be on the docket for later this week as well. However, where we begin is with the charges of which Sam faces seven. Those include two charges of wire fraud, two charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, as well as charges of securities fraud, commodities fraud and money laundering. More generally, Sam is accused of fraudulently dealing with customer funds in a multitude of ways. The most damning allegation, and the one prosecutors will likely focus on establishing, is that Sam knowingly diverted customer funds to FTX -affiliated hedge fund Alameda Research. Alameda, of course, served as the primary market maker on FTX. Now, FTX is widely understood not to have been able to obtain bank accounts, and so in many cases used accounts held by Alameda Research to receive funds from customers. The thing that prosecutors will seek to demonstrate is that Alameda not only held customer funds, but that it racked up billions of dollars in debt to FTX, which it could not repay. Evidence has been put forward that Alameda did not have the same risk controls as other entities when it traded on FTX, and that the lack of limits allowed Alameda to continue to operate while carrying a large negative cash balance. To put a fine point on it, the prosecution will allege that this large negative cash balance represented improperly using customer funds to trade and lose on the exchange. Now of course, Alameda had a significant balance sheet of assets held against this negative cash balance, but these assets were crypto tokens largely created by Sam and FTX. They were far too illiquid to realize it anywhere close to their full book value. The SEC summarized the allegations in their separate lawsuit by stating that Sam, Put more simply by Bloomberg's Matt Levine in an article published yesterday, It was pretty much entirely because Alameda had lost it. Now the key to proving these allegations will be establishing that Sam was aware of this financial artifice being run using Alameda. Fraud isn't fraud if it was caused by a mistake or an oversight. Prosecutors will need to show that Sam was either aware of the fraud or willfully blind to it. As the judge put it during a hearing last week, Now let's move on to the timeline of events. Much of the DOJ's case will center around the fateful final weeks as the FTX empire came crashing down. The beginning of the end came on November 2nd when Coindesk's Ian Allison published an expose on the Alameda balance sheet. There had been some rumors of trouble at Alameda prior to that, but with a partial copy of the balance sheet, this piece of reporting blew the lid off the situation. TLDR, what the balance sheet showed was that a huge portion of Alameda's holdings, the were pretty illiquid tokens and in particular, the native exchange token of FTX, FTT. Now in terms of a huge portion of their assets being in FTT, there were also a bunch of other Sam coins from DeFi projects that barely got off the ground, which in some cases had Alameda representing up to 95 % of the overall token supply. According to the Financial Times, just $900 million in assets on this balance sheet could be easily sold. The next major event was the very public sparring between Binance CEO CZ and Sam. Binance had been an early investor in FTX, but at that time had been bought out of their stake for $2 .1 billion. That repurchase, a theoretically pretty good return on an $80 million investment, had been paid out in a mix of stablecoins and FTT tokens. On the Sunday following the Coindesk article, CZ tweeted that quote, Due to recent revelations that have come to light, we have decided to liquidate any remaining FTT on our books. He said the firm would attempt to do so in a way that quote, minimizes market impact over the next few months. But of course, when you have CZ, the single biggest player in the industry, saying dump FTT and run for the hills, guess what happened next? Within the hour, Carolyn Ellison absolutely pissed gasoline all over the situation. She had taken over as sole Alameda CEO just a couple months prior and tweeted to CZ quote, If you're looking to minimize the market impact of your FTT sales, Alameda will happily buy it all from you today at $22. The market immediately plunged, with FTT's price being very visibly defended against Throughout the week before, FTT had traded around $25 and a market cap of $3 billion. By Tuesday night, with Alameda's traders and balance sheet exhausted, the token settled at $5 and FTX closed withdrawals. Now like I said, I gave my account of being on the inside. And while Tuesday when FTX closed withdrawals was clearly a final moment in the coffin for many of us inside, for me when it was clear that something very nefarious had gone on was on Monday, when I started getting hit up by other friends outside of FTX in the industry who were asking if I had heard anything about an FTX emergency fundraising round. Now of course, as an exchange that was supposed to be fully backed and given Sam's recent statements to the team that we had around $2 billion in cash and liquid assets thanks to trading revenue as well as recent fundraising, the only way in the world that we would need an emergency fundraising round was if Sam had been using FTX customer funds for purposes other than sitting on FTX's books waiting for those customers to reclaim those funds. Anyway, in the middle of that week after withdrawals were closed, there was also a weird sham sale announced to Binance, which they very quickly backed out of. And by Friday, with most FTX staffers having already fled the Bahamas, Sam finally capitulated to bankruptcy. Now to this day, Sam claims that he was forced by external lawyers to place the FTX empire into bankruptcy and appears to continue to be holding onto the idea that the exchange could have raised an emergency fundraising round to make customers whole. For most people, that might be where the event ended, but not so much for Sam. What followed was a bizarre string of press interviews, an incredibly disjointed Twitter thread, and basically an odd media tour that attempted to paint Sam as a wayward and naive CEO in over his head rather than a perpetrator of criminal fraud. This tour was capped off by a live broadcast interview with Andrew Ross Sorkin of the New York Times on November 30th. During that sprawling interview, Sam claimed that he, quote, didn't ever try to commit fraud on anyone. Authorities disagreed, and on December 12th, Sam was arrested in the Bahamas at the request of the US government. Although initially defiant, Sam ultimately agreed to be extradited to face charges and was released on bail. Once again, for any normal person, that might be the end of the story until we get to trial, but not for Sam. Although he was confined to his parents' house in California, Sam managed to continuously test the boundaries of his bail conditions. February, Sam was hauled before the judge on allegations that he had used encrypted messaging apps to contact the General Counsel of FTX US as well as using a VPN, which Sam claimed was just to watch NFL games. To the former General Counsel of FTX US, Sam had reached out to see if it was possible to, quote, have a constructive relationship, use each other as resources when possible, or at least vet things with each other. The DOJ characterized this communication as an attempt to taint a potential witness. At that point, the judge decided not to revoke Sam's bail, but instead expressly forbid Sam from using encrypted messaging apps and VPNs. And yet, in July, Sam stepped over the line once again by leaking the private journal of Carolyn Ellison to the New York Times. The judge agreed that providing this material to journalists was, at best, an attempt to embarrass Ellison, if not a brazen attempt to intimidate her and discredit her in the public eye. During the course of that hearing, it was uncovered that Sam had held more than 1 ,000 phone calls with journalists, including over 100 with the New York Times reporter who published the story. And thus, by early August, Sam had his bail revoked and was locked up at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center to await his trial. Since then, it's basically just been a never -ending set of appeals to try to get Sam out of jail, but alas, jail is where he remains. Next up, let's talk witnesses. What became clear quite fast was that there was a cohort of around four people, including Sam, that seemed to know about the extra special privileges that Alameda enjoyed and the fact that for all intents and purposes, customer funds on FTX were just used as a slush fund for their hedge fund traders. And it turns out that while Sam was still in the air being extradited from the Bahamas, multiple FTX executives were revealed to be collaborating witnesses. Of those, Carolyn Ellison is the one likely to get the most attention. As well as being the CEO of Alameda, Ellison was also Sam's former girlfriend. The couple split prior to the collapse of FTX and there will no doubt be extensive cross -examination which questions Ellison's motives in giving evidence against Sam. Although Ellison was only at the helm of Alameda for a little over two months, recent reporting describes her as essentially in charge of the trading firm for much longer, at least as much as anyone could be in charge of the firm relative to Sam himself. Nominally, Ellison and Sam Trabuco, another Sam in this story, had been appointed co -CEOs of the firm in October of 2021 when SPF stepped away from the role. However, Trabuco had recently been described as almost entirely checked out at that point, leaving Ellison in charge of day -to -day operations. Ellison is expected to give evidence regarding the inner workings of FTX and has acknowledged that she knew about the hole in Alameda's balance sheet prior to the collapse of the exchange. Nishad Singh and Gary Wang are the other two executives known to be cooperating with prosecutors. Singh acted as engineering director while Wang was the exchange's CTO and co -founder. These two basically built all of FTX from the ground up, so anything going on with the codebase is basically going to be mostly just their work. Nishad is expected to give a first -hand account of how the Alameda backdoor was enabled in the code. Nishad was reportedly extremely distressed and wracked with guilt during the final weeks at FTX and was confrontational with Sam during that time. Gary was one of the last employees left in the Bahamas as the exchange collapsed and famously coded almost the entire platform by himself. Some have speculated about how he will be as a witness given that he is notoriously quiet. Now, each of these three key witnesses have already pleaded guilty to criminal fraud charges and have agreed to testify in exchange for a lighter sentence. Prosecutors will need to demonstrate that each one is presenting an honest account of events rather than merely throwing Sam under the bus to save themselves. There are also complicated personal relationships between each of these executives and Sam, which could be used by the defense. All three cohabitated with Sam in a Bahamas penthouse and were some of Sam's closest friends as well as employees. To give an indication of how hostile cross -examination could become, last week a DOJ motion to prevent the defense from asking questions about recreational drug use was denied. The defense will need to provide notice to the court before asking witnesses about their drug use, but the subject was not ruled to be out of bounds. Another FTX executive who has pleaded guilty to criminal charges is Ryan Salem, who served as CEO of FTX Digital Markets. FTX Digital Markets was the operating company for the Bahamas. Now, Salem was particularly involved in the political campaign side of things for Sam and was charged with violations of campaign financing law in relation to making straw donations to politicians on Sam's direction as well as operating an unlicensed money -transmitting business. Unlike the other three, Salem is not cooperating with prosecutors as part of his plea deal, but could be called to testify as a non -cooperating witness. Alameda co -CEO Sam Trabuco has not been heard from since he stepped away from the company last August. He has not been disclosed as a witness and has not been charged at this stage. The DOJ has also flagged that they have at least two additional witnesses set to testify under a grant of immunity but have not publicly identified them at this stage. By and large, speculation about who those witnesses might be include not only Trabuco who we just mentioned, but Daniel Friedberg who served as FTX's chief compliance officer and who had formerly been implicated in a major online poker scandal, and Constance Wang who was FTX's COO and was described as Sam's right hand during fundraising efforts. Now in addition to FTX executives, the DOJ will also call multiple customers and investors to give brief testimony. Prosecutors have flagged that they will call upon retail customers who traded tens of thousands of dollars on the platform, as well as institutional clients who traded millions of dollars. The high range could imply notable industry figures will make an appearance on the witness stand. Several high profile market makers are listed as top creditors of FTX and are no doubt none too happy about their funds being locked up in the bankruptcy process. Both customers and investors are intended to present their understanding of the FTX terms of service and representations made about the use of customer funds, which could be crucial in refuting possible defenses. Which indeed brings us to that section of this primer, what are the defense strategies that Sam might try to employ? SPF's legal team have flagged a few potential arguments. In a filing on Monday, they sought clarification on a few issues they may wish to present. The filing asked whether the defense could argue that FTX International was not regulated in the US and therefore did not have to follow applicable rules. They also asked whether Sam could discuss the likelihood that creditors could see massive returns from the bankruptcy process. Still, the primary defense expected from SPF relates to instructions from legal counsel. In August, SPF's team flagged a plan to argue that he relied on advice from both in -house attorneys as well as lawyers from Fenwick and West in basically all elements of FTX's operation. Sam sought to introduce advice from lawyers on topics ranging from his use of self -deleting messages, unconventional banking relationships, and intercompany financial arrangements. The DOJ objected to this defense, claiming that not enough detail had been provided, but the judge reserved their decision on this point until later in the trial. The judge said that they would make rulings on individual advice of counsel arguments on a case -by -case basis as they come up. Outside of what indications we've gotten from Sam's team, the industry and the wider world at large have had no problem speculating about how he might defend himself as well. Bloomberg's Matt Levine paraphrased his view of a likely defense as The crypto market crashed, there was a run on the bank, and the run on the bank is what evaporated the customer's money. It was an accident, perhaps a careless accident but not theft. Certainly, in media commentary, SPF has been focused on the bank run, rather than the hole in Alameda's balance sheet as the cause of FTX's collapse. Now, of course, there are some obvious issues with that defense, particularly if witnesses establish that Alameda had effectively commandeered customer funds in contravention of the exchange's terms of service. Another plank of Sam's defense will likely be to rely on prosecutors being unable to In a New Yorker article published last month, the journalist wrote, Going back to his article, Matt Levine again sketched out a plausible way that Sam could brush off an $8 billion balance sheet hole as a careless oversight rather than willful fraud. He suggested Sam could claim he thought FTX had so much money that $8 billion was a rounding error. From Levine's back of the napkin math, at its height, FTX had somewhere approaching $100 billion in crypto assets on its books. Finally, it's also expected that Sam will seek to blame Caroline for mismanaging Alameda. The publication of excerpts from Caroline's journal was an attempt to paint her as a naive child way out of her depths, and some of Sam's leaked writings also showed a belief that Alameda had failed to hedge correctly, as if that was the main issue here. Now, one thing that's important to note is that when considering defenses, SPF does not need to prove his innocence. He only needs to introduce a shred of doubt in the minds of the jury. To convict, the 12 jurors must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that Sam is guilty and reach a unanimous decision. Prosecutors often fail to get their cases over the line due to being unable to entirely convince each juror of the defendant's guilt. This can be even more of a difficulty when the case involves complicated financial crime which can be difficult to fully understand. And yet, many commentators are convinced that the case is damning. Daniel C. Silva, a former prosecutor who participated in the BitConnect case, said, Now, in terms of the latest from the bankruptcy, as the trial gets underway, the FTX bankruptcy process is entering its 10th month and has had no shortage of intrigue. The current focus has been on pursuing clawbacks from people and organizations that had been, in the estimation of the bankruptcy estate, unjustly enriched by FTX. On the very top of that list are Sam's parents, Joseph Bankman and Barbara Fried. Two weeks ago, the estate sued Bankman and Fried, claiming that they had received over $26 million in gifts from FTX, including a luxury property in the Bahamas. The lawsuit alleges that Bankman was intimately involved in the operations at FTX and used his position to enrich himself. You may have seen the now -famous email where he tried to raise his salary to a million dollars by threatening to involve Sam's mother. Now, speaking of Sam's mother, Barbara Fried is alleged to have directed political donation efforts at FTX. This instructing included Sam on how to structure donations to avoid donation limits. She is also alleged to have knowledge of loans made to FTX executives, which were then used to fund election campaigns. All in all, the lawsuit alleged that the pair, quote, Now, for their part, Sam's parents immediately hit back at the lawsuit through lawyers saying, A last note on the bankruptcy, while current FTX CEO John J. Wray has no doubt been cooperating with prosecutors in providing internal documents, he is not currently expected to testify as a witness. Now, in terms of the latest trial procedural stuff and timeline, today was technically the first day of the trial with jury selection the goal. Both sides have alleged the other is attempting to bias the jury pool. The DOJ claimed that Sam's questions for the jury about effective altruism, political donations and ADHD are intended to paint him in a sympathetic light. In particular, prosecutors are concerned that asking about charitable and political donations could improperly introduce the idea that Sam's actions were justified outside of evidence. The defense, meanwhile, have complained that the DOJ are treating Sam's fraud as an established fact in their jury questioning by omitting the word allegedly. They also claim a question about being stopped or questioned by the police is intended to racially filter the jury in a manner irrelevant to the case. Last week, as I intimated before, SPF placed a last minute appeal to be released from jail for the duration of the trial. Sam's team claimed that his incarceration would be an unreasonable barrier to adequately preparing for each day's hearing. Unfortunately for him, the judge found this argument insufficiently convincing and stated that they consider Sam to be a flight risk. They said, Sam was granted some concessions to be allowed to meet with his lawyers early at the courthouse each day, as well as during jail visiting on off days. Now, while a decision is yet to be made on exactly how Sam can introduce the concept that he relied on the advice of lawyers, limits were placed on what can be said during the defense's opening arguments. Specifically, Sam's lawyers have been prohibited from mentioning any advice of counsel arguments while presenting their case. The judge ruled that this argument may confuse or prejudice a jury when presented without specifics and evidence. The trial is currently scheduled to take six weeks. Jury selection is expected to be completed by the end of today's hearing, although before I was recording this, there were some indications that it might go into tomorrow morning as well. In either case, tomorrow we will likely see the beginnings of opening arguments. After that, the prosecution will present its case and call its witnesses. The DOJ has estimated their case will take four to five weeks. The defense will then have an opportunity to present their case, which they have estimated will be much shorter, taking around a week and a half. Now, the defense is not compelled to present a case and can simply choose not to if they are confident the charges have not been proven. We don't yet have any indication of whether SPF will speak in his own defense. Traditional legal strategy suggests that defendants should never take to the witness stand to avoid giving prosecutors an opportunity to cross -examine them. However, this is no ordinary trial and SPF is no ordinary defendant. Judging from how extensively Sam has defended himself in the media, I would not be surprised if his lawyers have a tough time keeping him out of the witness box. Hearings will be held four days a week with a short break after three weeks. If the trial takes longer than six weeks, it will be extended, but the consensus seems to be that it will be all over by Thanksgiving. And won't that be something to be thankful for? Now, even if Sam escapes a guilty verdict, his legal troubles will continue well into next year. The DOJ will present additional charges related to bribery of Chinese officials, as well as political donation violations during a second criminal trial, which is scheduled for March. Sam will also face civil lawsuits from the SEC and the CFTC after the first criminal trial is concluded. Beyond that, there's still the possibilities of lawsuits from the FTX bankruptcy estate, as well as from former customers and investors. So my friends, that is the lay of the land. That is what we are going into. Like I said at the top, for me, the most interesting thing, the thing that I will be watching most closely, is actually the meta -narrative analysis around this. I want to know how much, especially mainstream media looks at this and treats this like what it is, which is Sam Bankman -Fried going on trial, versus what I fear it might become, which is the entire crypto industry being put on trial. But in any event, this truly is a scenario where the only way out is through. So get on your boots, friends, because we are getting into the muck. Until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.
A highlight from MARKETS DAILY: Crypto Update | SEC Chair Faces Harsh Questions as Ether Spot ETF Proposals Hit Delays
"This episode of Markets Daily is sponsored by Kraken. It's Thursday, September 28th, 2023, and this is Markets Daily from CoinDesk. My name is Noelle Acheson, CoinDesk collaborator and author of the Crypto's Macro Noun newsletter on Substack. On today's show, we're talking about Ether ETFs, SEC confusion, and more. So you don't miss an episode. Be sure to follow the podcast on your platform of choice. And just a reminder, CoinDesk is a news source and does not provide investment advice. Now, a markets roundup. Well, Bitcoin has been busy over the past 24 hours. After that nice run -up yesterday that I thought was a sign of strong investor support, the Bitcoin price rapidly fell back down again. It has been climbing since, however. At 10 a .m. Eastern time, it was more or less flat, trading at $26 ,532. Depending on what happens over the next couple of days, Bitcoin could break the trend of negative performance in September. The ninth month is typically a weak one for crypto's leading asset, delivering negative returns over the past six Septembers. Bitcoin's average performance for the month is almost negative 5%. As of this morning, however, the asset price is up more than 2 % month to date. That kind of a break in the trend would be welcome news. In Ether, interesting things are happening. Like Bitcoin, it climbed yesterday and then fell back, only to start climbing again, but with a more consistent slope, suggesting a steadier over the past 24 hours. Relative to Bitcoin, Ether has notably outperformed over the past week, climbing two tenths of a percent versus Bitcoin's drop of 2 .3%. This could be due to the likely listing next week of the first Ether futures ETFs, which could boost demand and market volume. I'll talk more about this in a moment. In traditional markets, US stocks closed more less flat yesterday, rising in the second half to recover early losses. Over the past 10 days, the S &P 500 is down more than 4 .3%, the steepest 10 -day drop since March. You may remember that March was banking stress month. Investors are rattled by the surge in 10 -year Treasury yields, which yesterday rose above 4 .6 % for the first time since October 2007. The rising rates are investors for three main reasons. One, there's the patterns last seen just before the great financial crisis of 2007 -2008. Two, there's also the impact on company earnings. An article in the Financial Times this morning pointed out that interest expenses for the S &P 600 small cap index hit a record high in the latest batch of second quarter earnings. And 30 % of companies in the S &P 500 are now trading at a higher rate. Reason three, there's the message the market is sending. This is that it expects rates to remain higher for longer. This is likely to keep the dollar strong and inflict more pain on global markets. In Europe, stock indices have been taking a breather from their recent drops, with most showing moderate gains so far today. Over the past month, however, the Euro Stoxx 50, which tracks Eurozone blue chips, is down over 4 .3%. An index of Eurozone economic sentiment released this morning showed a fifth consecutive monthly drop in September. Inflation expectations rose. In commodities, oil prices continued their climb in the face of fears of supply shortages. The Brent crude benchmark rose above $96 per barrel for the first time this year this morning and is now almost 6 .5 % above its level a year ago. However, the market is signalling that this could abate soon. The prices of futures contracts six months out is lower. This suggests a scramble for spot delivery. In other words, oil now and not later. This has been most likely triggered by reports of reserve drawdowns in the US and the need in many areas to build up stocks as winter approaches. Moving over to gold, after a brief attempt at a recovery earlier today, gold slumped back to its support at $1 ,874 per ounce. Like Bitcoin, gold is holding up surprisingly well given the strength of the dollar and of real yields, which are yields adjusted for inflation. Gold normally moves inversely to real yields. When these are high, gold is less attractive as it doesn't produce an income. As measured by the 10 -year Treasury inflation -protected securities, real yields are at their highest since 2009. The last time they were at these levels, gold was roughly half the price it is today. One key macro data point to watch out for is the US Personal Consumption Expenditures Index, or the PCE. This is the Federal Reserve's preferred inflation gauge as it measures goods and services bought by all US households and non -profits, while the CPI only measures purchases by urban households. Tomorrow morning Eastern Time, we get the latest data for August expected to show an uptick. This will largely be due to higher energy prices. Stripping out higher energy and food prices gives us the core PCE index growth, which is what the Fed focuses on. This is forecast to show a continued downtrend. Remember, though, that August's core CPI grew by slightly more month -on -month than expected, so there may be a negative surprise tomorrow as well. This will be relevant for interest rate expectations. Stubborn inflation means that rates will remain, and you've heard this before, higher for longer. Stay tuned, after the break we'll take a look at more SEC frustration and at the likely listing of Ether futures ETFs.

A highlight from Robert C. O'Brien and Neil Auerbach join Hugh to discuss how the GOP should approach Climate & Energy policy
"You know what that means. That means Dwayne will be sitting in for me tomorrow. That's what that means. That means the Browns, the Cleveland Browns, are on Monday Night Football tonight against the Threaded Steelers, and they gotta go play in Pittsburgh. Last time I recall a Pittsburgh game, the Steelers snapped the ball over the head of Terry, not Terry, Big Ben Roethlisberger at the start of the playoff game. That's all I remember about Pittsburgh, but tonight I will be screaming from 8 .15 East Coast time until probably midnight. I don't know how long the games go with the new rules, but whatever, Dwayne's gonna come in and talk to you about the Browns win tomorrow, and then I'll be back on Wednesday. The real reason for that is that we have friends in town that we haven't seen in a couple of years, and we are going to go show them down East. So I'm gonna be down East after I'm up late watching the Browns. So tomorrow morning, if anything bad happens, it's Dwayne's fault. I wanna begin today with a horrible story, and it's every parent's nightmare. If you got little kids in the car, you may not want them to hear this because it's just every parent's worst nightmare. It's a small story, right? With terrible tragedy, involves four children. A baby died after ingesting fentanyl at a New York day school preschool nursery. Three other children from the Divino Nino daycare were hospitalized and treated for opioid. Now, two adults have been arrested for reckless indifference, and two are charged with murder for the death of the one -year -old.

Broadcasting 24 hours a day at Bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act. This is Bloomberg Radio. Center banks around the world, both developed and emerging, are fighting inflation. I really think it's about ECB policy, how that relates to Fed policy in this US dollar. The consumer remains strong, so there kind of continues the challenge that the Fed has. The last mile is going to be hard, but I do believe that we are very much on that disinflationary trend. I think we're in this very like hold your breath kind of moment.

A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/11/23
"There stars are in the southern sky and if ever you decide... If my research is correct, this was what the Madison Square Garden crowd heard to begin the show that Mike was in attendance for when he was in New York. I'm just watching guys play tennis, but this is what Mike did. I bet it was awesome. Mike and I were in New York City at the same time doing very different things. Wait a minute. Don't say Mike and I were in New York City. You created quite the drama by your refusal to spend even a second of time with me when you and your beautiful bride were celebrating your anniversary. Well, excuse me for not peeling away for schmooze time on an anniversary event. It took Peg Hudson to set Joe and me straight. Let me give you the backstory. Yes, there's always backstory. Your research is spot on. That was what they opened with. They all lined up across the front of the stage, including the great Vince Gill. Oh my God. That show was unbelievable. I mean, when's the last time you've gone to a concert and for two hours you hear the band just do hit after hit after hit after hit? Who can do that? It's not a long list. The Eagles can do it. And they did it. Opened up by Steely Dan. And in fairness, there's an example, three quarters of the songs, I don't remember it. I never heard of, but there's a couple of hits there for some of the great Steely Dan. And then of course, the Eagles with what was an incredible night at Madison Square Garden. But anyway, you're here, you're in town. I'm in town with Joey and Peg. We're seeing the Eagles and we saw a couple Broadway shows and I figured when Mark and Lisa go do stuff, it's Mark and Lisa time. And I should have known that. So I delicately said, hey, you want to get together for lunch or dinner while you're here? I mean, we don't see each other in person very much. And of course, as predictable as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west, oh, we're slammed. Thank you. We're very busy. We're very busy. We're slammed. We're a little maxed out here. We're maxed out. And so Joey and I got all up in arms about it Saturday night. My man, my man, buddy card is being revoked. We went to dinner at a place called Centurion, New York, and I had a table set for you and Lisa. I mean, we were in a private room on the 55th floor of one Wondervelt. I'm not kidding you. It was unbelievable. It's this brand new dining experience. And we had a room with a table of six with three of us. And I kept saying, gosh, what, how perfect that would have been for Mark and Lisa to have joined us. And Joey and I started bellyaching about your rudeness. And then Peg says, it took a woman to point out, are you guys high? Right. Well, she says, do you think they want to spend their anniversary weekend with you talking shop? And I said, well, first of all, we're more than just shop. It's not just work. We're friends. Exactly. There's all kinds of commonalities and tastes and the culture in our lives. And we're intertwined, of course, it would have been lovely. But it wasn't because you didn't give us the time of day. I know my priorities. Well, you're right. Okay. I mean, good for you. And I hope you had a lovely weekend. So what exactly should I have given up? Should I have, well, here's a weird story because we thought that one night was going to be at the Arthur Ashe Stadium for tennis purposes. And the other one was going to be at Elio's in the Upper East Side, the restaurant where I proposed to her in March of 2002. So which of those should I have cashed in, you know, go hang out with y 'all as much as wonderful as that would have been. I mean, is the proposal restaurant all that significant? Come on. Yes, it is. But here's what's weird. Here's the weird thing that happened on tennis day. Do you know how weird tennis is trying to attend it? If you want to go to the Cowboys and the Eagles on December 10th, you can get a ticket right now for the Cowboys and the Eagles on December 10th. But if you want to go see Novak Djokovic, which is what my bride wanted to do, because from 10, 15 years ago, we're watching Nadal and Federer, and she just loves these guys. And we have loved watching tennis together on the TV box. And I said, for this anniversary, I'm taking you to the U .S. Open. It's like, great, we'll go see Djokovic or other great players, Daniel Medvedev, the young Carlos Alcaraz, who may be the next Nadal. But if you want to see Djokovic, you can't. He's not guaranteed to play on a particular day at a particular time. You can nail down the day. We did not know until hours ahead of time that Djokovic and Ben Shelton, the American, would be the early match. And silly me, I thought, there's no way. He's got to be the late match. So I bought tickets to the late match at no small expense. But then all of a sudden it's like, ding, ding, ding. Nope. That is Medvedev. He'll be playing Alcaraz at night and beat him, of course, because it was Djokovic and Medvedev. And Djokovic won in the final that we watched last night. It was great. So here's what I had to do. I've never done this before. I'm a big fan of the secondary market. So I had these tickets on Ticketmaster. In the old days. You tell me you sold tickets because I was desperately trying to get tickets to go. I'm going to kill you. What? No. I wanted to go so bad. To the open? I wanted to go to the open so badly I could taste it. And I went on the secondary market. You know, God's been good to me and I have a pretty good living. I ain't spending $14 ,000 a ticket. Okay. You want to talk real dollars? I'm going to do this. I am going to do this for my bride. She doesn't do mink coats or huge jewelry. You know, she's just one of the million reasons I love her. We were in unbelievable seats for the night, for the night one in the hundred level, the loge level. And they were $1 apiece. ,700 $1 ,700 apiece. So $3 ,400 to put my wife and me in these magnificent seats. Then we learned, guess what? Djokovic ain't playing at night. He's playing in the daytime. So now I got to go get seats to that. But here's the thing, since the world expected Djokovic to be at night, that's why those seats were $1 ,700. The moment it was announced, I flip immediately to the day session, got the exact same seats on the other side of Arthur Ashe Stadium for $600 apiece. Boom. Then I sold, with my phone still in my hand, sold the ones that I had bought. Obviously, their price went down a little bit. So I didn't make it all back. But I essentially paid for the other ones with the sale of the first ones. It is a crazy modern world, man. It is a crazy modern world. And heaven forbid you would have said to your talk show buddy, you want a couple tickets to the open because I would have bought them from you direct. I wouldn't even know. Funny, I don't know how to transfer them to another actual human being. Well, there's a way. There's got to be a way. All right. I think there's enough about that. Here's my proclamation. If I come to Dallas for a weekend, I'll make time to see you and Lisa, okay? And I will find a restaurant with a private room and a seat for anybody you want to bring. All right. We'll replicate it, Texas. Let me share with you the sights and sounds of what I experienced this morning walking into work here at 111 Broadway in lower Manhattan. All the police activity as the commemoration, the bell is ringing, observing the moment the flight hit the North Tower. Twenty -two years, Mark. The moment you know well. Boy. You were in the Empire State. Sure was. And we're going to relive that today on the show as we always do. We're also going to play that beautiful faith -filled tribute called Silent Night that our friends at KRLA in Los Angeles made many years ago where God, you just don't believe it, but he has a plan and he is always, always with us, even in our darkest hours. So, you know, Axios had an interesting piece this morning about how young men and women enlisting today and joining the military. They don't have that sense of understanding or recognition of 9 -11. So many people became members of the military because of 9 -11. It was such a movement in this country and it was beautiful and it continues to be. And they're in their mid -forties now. Correct. You know, ish. And you think about, I mean, there are people of legal adulthood, 21 years old now, who were not alive for 9 -11. Absolutely. For them, it's not like it's Pearl Harbor or anything, but it's just something that happened before I was born. I got to wrap my head around that. It's interesting that I heard, that's a second time today, though, I've heard somebody say, well, it's not like Pearl Harbor. I really feel it is. Just to me, it's, maybe it's because of our age and, you know, we run around. Here's the crazy thing. You and I were both born less than 20 years afterward. Correct. After Pearl Harbor. So it was just something that had recently happened. That's right. Had a certain stigma and, you know. So I think about the people who joined the military on behalf of those who died on 9 -11 and fighting for our freedoms, fighting against tyranny. And Mark, I am stunned at the rapid way tyranny has come to our own governance. I read an article the other day in the New York Times. It's an opinion piece, to be fair. Trump indict Trump's indictments, the key players in the 2020 election effort. And Mark, they did one of these and I read it online, one of these comprehensive articles about how everybody who questioned in any way, shape or form the outcome of the 2020 election is a co -conspirator in the election denialism that is traitorous, that is traitorous, that's treason. Now, attack on democracy. Right now, never mind all the Democrats, including Hillary on down, who lined up in question the outcome of 2016. I guess that doesn't count. I'm sure the New York Times didn't do, you know, an extensive piece on this, but they've got everybody ensnared in this, Mark. Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley. We saw Lindsey Graham almost got indicted in Fulton County. And all they were doing was saying, what happened here? And exactly daring to inquire. And that has become a tactic of the left. And I think COVID, tell me if you agree with me, COVID broke the door open on this. If you dared question the vaccine or if you dared question the lockdowns, you were shut down. You lost your social media status. Some people lost their jobs. Look at the, look at all the airline pilots we lost because they wouldn't get vaccinated. And that kind of opened the door. And now it comes to the, to election integrity and the New York Times and people who think like them want to weaponize our free speech right to question anything. And criminalize it. And so your metaphor is apt. It absolutely is. And I hope it goes a similar way that the COVID extremism did. And that is that the pendulum swings. And now we have relative rationality, even though I did see in New York City, people walking around by themselves in Washington Square Park, wearing a mask outside. But not many, right? Not very many at all. Listen, I almost wanted a mask to keep away from the weed smell. I asked a New York City cop, what's with the weed? And he told me, he said, look, it's legal. You can't have enough where you're trying to sell it. You can't give it to kids, blah, blah, blah. But it's pretty, and I said, has it been a problem? He said, not really. He said, I don't like it either, but it's people doing, so, but not to divert. So your metaphor is apt. I hope that the pendulum swings, as it did with COVID, and I hope it does it maybe even quicker because the, because the Fauci's and the various other people who hit us with this have been proven so terribly, terribly wrong and corrupt so relatively quickly. I hope that can happen on weaponization of election. Well, Mark, there's reason to be optimistic. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's ruling, huge win for free speech where this appeals court upheld the prohibiting government officials from communicating with social media companies. There was a preliminary junction. The defendants include Joe Biden, the U .S. Surgeon General, the Health and Human Services Secretary, and the courts are agreeing that it is absolutely unlawful for government officials to try to censor speech on social media. Of course it is. Well, it took a long time. Sure. Well, listen, justice delayed is justice denied. But that's the pendulum swinging. And I hope you, speaking of New York, I hope you saw the New York -based shrews over on The View Friday, Anna Navarro and the rest of them now complaining about the illegals in New York City saying they need to be resettled elsewhere. Anna Navarro and the rest of them on The View want to kick illegals out of New York. How unwelcoming. Oh, how well, how unchristian -like of them. But listen, I heard somebody say this somewhere else and it's true. People like Greg Abbott and others have called Eric Adams bluff. Yep. We've called their bluff. We've said, all right, you want to be a sanctuary city? Here's what it looks like. This is it. Welcome to Texas. Every day, the amount. Welcome to El Paso. And, you know, so golly, I hope the pendulum is swing. Great to have you back. It is wonderful to be back. Great to kick off a big, big week. I'll be in Philly tonight for a big event with Dennis Prager and Pastor Robert Jeffers. Faith and Freedom Coalition event. And then back here on in New York Tuesday and then back to Florida. So, OK, this is crazy. Mr. Acela corridor. You're in Philadelphia for an event tonight. I'm on the 115 Acela. I love that train. In the morning? 115 this afternoon. To get there. But where are you doing the show tomorrow morning? From Philly, from AM 990. And then taking the Acela back. And I have to admit, I'm not a big train travel fan. Yep. I like that Acela. Yep. Pretty cool. And, you know, I think I've got to be in first class just so I can, as an observer, experience what that first class experience must be like. If you're going to do it, do it. You might as well go up front, you know, and or actually in the back. Sometimes the first class on the Acela is on the way in the back. But I still like walking over to the cafe car and getting a hot dog. Kicking it old school. Absolutely. Yeah. Love it. Love it. Big week. All right. Happy Monday, my friend. Happy Monday. Mike Gallagher there for you on this very. I'm just. Think identity theft won't happen to you? Think again. There's a new victim every three seconds in the U .S., over 15 million this year alone.

A highlight from Bitcoin Could Bottom at $12,000 OR LOWER! (Here's WHY) | Gareth Soloway
"All right, guys, in the last 16 hours, we've had two bits of news that have absolutely rocked the market. The first piece of news that rocked the markets was an unsubstantiated report that SpaceX has written down the value of their Bitcoin. It came from the Wall Street Journal and it came from a little paragraph at the bottom of an article that was written about SpaceX. And what it says at the very bottom of the article, it says the documents also show that SpaceX wrote down the value of the Bitcoin that it owns by a total of $373 million last year. Now, Twitter or crypto Twitter went and interpreted that SpaceX had actually sold their Bitcoin, which I don't think is true. And we're going to talk about that in a couple of minutes. The other bit of news that rocked the market was this bit of news over here, which actually is quite serious news. And that's that Evergrande, which is the second largest property developer in China, has actually gone into bankruptcy. You know, in China, this is a massive, massive, massive thing. Evergrande, the second biggest property group in China going down is massive news. And we're going to talk about why this could actually spread into contagion. Now, when you take those pieces of news and you superimpose them on the market that we have now, let's talk about when I say the market that we have now, we're not dealing with a normal market. We're dealing with a market where the volume on the markets and the liquidity on the markets is lower than it's ever been. So if you look at the Bitcoin trading volume chart, what you realize is that the trading volume on Bitcoin is the lowest that it's ever been. And so when you take this news or when you take as much news as we just had or two events that we've just had and you superimpose it over the fact that you've got no volume in the market. The problem is that you start getting a cascade of liquidations. You get all the leverage starting to get liquidated out the market. That's exactly what happened last night. If you look at the Bybit chart, you look at the Bybit chart, Bybit, the Bitcoin price on Bybit went down to $24 ,207. And that's what happens when everybody's stop loss is hit and there's no buyers in the market. And this wasn't only Bybit, it was actually many of the leverage exchanges. There was $1 billion worth of longs which were complete, well, $834 million longs which were completely wrecked and $207 million worth of shorts that were absolutely, absolutely wrecked. So take the combination of no volume in the market and no liquidity in the market, superimpose it with two bits of bad news and then a little bit of like bad news on the stock markets and on the macro markets, because we also have a situation in the United States at the moment where they yield the 10 -year Treasury yield is not trading at 4 .27%, which is very high. In fact, what I want to do is I want to show you when the last time that this 10 -year Treasury yield, it was in 2007, was the last time that the 10 -year Treasury yield was as high. Now what does this mean? It means that people don't want US debt. It means that people are dumping US debt. And when you take a country that has so much debt like the United States and people start dumping their debt, that could be a recipe for a catastrophe in the making. And that's what's weighing down on the markets. Now, combining this all together, Gareth wrote a tweet and in the tweet, he says the following, I'm not going to read the whole tweet, it says, should 25 break, 20K becomes the next stop. Should 20K fail, the 52 -week current cycle lows, it will be tested at 15 ,700. Then he says, 12 to 13 ,000 is still very much on the table. And he even says Bitcoin can go as low as $9 ,000 to $10 ,000. So when I read that, first thing I did was I picked up the phone to Gareth, it was like four o 'clock in the morning his time, I said, Gareth, listen, wake up, buddy, you've got to be on banter as soon as you wake up tomorrow morning. And he's agreed. So later on in the show, Gareth is coming on and he's going to talk us through the thesis. And then at the end of the show, you're going to tell me whether you think Gareth is right or Gareth is wrong. So listen, I know it's Friday and usually on Fridays what we do is banter, but I just figured that today it wasn't time for a banter. Today, we're going to deep dive into all of these things and we're going to decide whether this is a problem and whether we're going to continue to go down or whether this is just a short term thing. And we're going to be back back up at $27 ,000, $28 ,000 and $29 ,000 very soon. So, big show. Let's do this, guys.

"Commentary about how we still haven't seen the full effects of all these interest rate increases and it's going to start being felt later on this year but we've heard that for all this year as well. Yeah absolutely and I think you know maybe there is a bit of a holding pattern here as people really do want to see that CPI report tomorrow morning whether that you'd get that re -acceleration and inflation that some people thought or whether that downtrend continues and of course whatever fit commentary gets baked into it after we go. We should point out that we did actually open higher on the S &P 500 only by a fraction of a percent here and never really moved much off of that. At one point on the day we were down by about nine -tenths of a percent. It looks like right now as we get the closing bells we're going to close lower by seven -tenths of a percent. Down about 32 points or about 44 .67 on the S &P. The Dow Jones Industrial averaged down about 200 points or a half a percent. We should point out the Nasdaq Composite down a percent on the day but the Nasdaq 100 also moving lower here on the day by a similar amount and breaking below that 50 -day moving average first closed below that 50 -day moving average since March of this year. The Russell 2000 also lower on the daycurl by about nine -tenths of a percent. All right as expected a headline crossing the Bloomberg Terminal.

Podcast Highlight: Veganism Transformed My Health in Just Two Weeks
"So one evening, after finishing a huge dinner of filet mignon with a baked potato soaked with butter and sour cream, I told my husband, I'm done. And he was like, what? And I said, I am done eating things that are killing me. I'm turning vegan as of tomorrow morning. And he was like, okay, great, I'll do it with you. So the next morning, when we got up, I had to skip my coffee because I can't drink coffee without creamer in it. So we went to the refrigerator and the pantry, we cleaned out every type of food that was not plant based, we got rid of everything. We took it all to the food bank, and we donated it. And then we made a 40 minute drive to Wegmans, which is a store where we knew we could buy lots of good vegan friendly choices. And we bought about $400 worth of food. Now suffice it to say that we really didn't know better at first, we bought, you know, the good green leafy stuff and lots of fruits and vegetables. But we also bought the processed vegan cheeses, the vegan sandwich meats, the impossible burger patties, you know, all that processed stuff. And we really don't eat those things anymore. But I will admit, they filled a niche during that first couple of weeks of transitioning. So they do serve a purpose for sure for people who are coming off of the crazy diet that I used to be on, and you know, switching overnight to vegan. So here's a little more background on my health that I haven't really shared much about on previous episodes. In addition to having fought bladder cancer for the past six years, I was also overweight with a BMI of 28 .4. So that's the high end of the overweight category right before you hit the obese stage. Now I'm really tall at 5 '9", and so it's a little easier for people my height to kind of hide their weight, but I was at a very unhealthy weight. I had also been taking medicine for high blood pressure for many years. Hypertension ran in my family, so I just assumed that it was something I was going to have to deal with for the rest of my life. And to make matters worse, the last time my cholesterol was checked a couple of years ago, it was a whopping 220. I didn't tell anyone that at the time because I didn't want to hear from my family and friends, oh my God, you need to do something about that. So yeah, even though I knew that, I still had not made any changes to my diet to bring that down. So after watching those documentaries and getting a full understanding of what high cholesterol does to one's arteries, I was really kind of scared to think about what kind of blockages I had already been building in my body over time from just eating a very poor and unhealthy diet. The good news that I gleaned from those shows that I watched and everything that I read was that these problems can be reversed at virtually any age. It was never too late to start. And that was a great motivator, as great a motivator, as reducing the joint pain that I had from the cancer treatments. So here's what happened on day five of my first week on a solely plant -based diet. I woke up and got out of bed without any pain. I am serious, no pain. And that was an absolute miracle for me. I even asked my husband if he thought maybe it was psychosomatic. You know, I just didn't feel the pain because I had convinced myself it was gone. But that really seemed like a reach. I mean, there was no wishing away that kind of pain that I had suffered for so many months. So that was the first thing I noticed. And then as days passed, I felt better and better. Then at the end of week two, I took my blood pressure. Now, this was back when I was still on medication. So before turning to a vegan diet on a good day with meds, my blood pressure was still elevated, usually with a systolic number being, you know, like high 120s and or low 130s. And I had kind of come to accept that as the norm for myself. That morning, I took my blood pressure that second week after transition. It was 117 over 70. I was like, what? I took it again several times throughout the day, and it remained low. And that is crazy. I mean, I thought that's nuts. That's never been it's never been that low. But there it was.

"The People's Justice" With Judge Amul Thapar
"I'm Hugh Hewitt. Judge Amul Thapar is my guest. He's a judge of the Sixth Circuit of the United States, the most important circuit because it covers Ohio. He's also the author of this brand new book, The People's Justice, which should be a bestseller. I wanna emphasize one thing. You don't need to be a lawyer. You certainly don't need to be a con law professor, a constitutional litigator. It is explanatory about everything that goes on at the court and how the cases develop. And I appreciate that, Judge, so much. I'm gonna go to the most surprising case. I've got five to talk about, one down kilo, three in the after show, which I'll play tomorrow morning, and then Jane Doe versus the United States. I was stunned by this, because it's not a case. It's a denial of cert. And a denial of cert, if everyone knows every denial of cert, I don't know how you even found this, tell people about the case that involves West Point, which I also did not know is the oldest US military installation in the United States, and Jane Doe's trial and her tribulation there, and what Justice Thomas wanted to do. Because the Ferris Doctrine is not easy to understand, but you explained it quite well. Well, thank you. So the Ferris Doctrine isn't easy to understand. And I'll leave in the book why West Point is the oldest, but it should be older. People have to get the book to find out why, and what happened between Washington and Jefferson. But moving forward, there's something called the Federal Tort Claims Act, which allows people to sue the government. So the sovereign was once immune, and as the government became more involved in the people's lives, the people demanded that they be able to sue the government when the government wrongs them. And what started to happen is people wanted to sue the military. Well, you don't want soldiers to be able to sue their bosses for orders and things where they may get hurt. And so there were exceptions to being allowed to sue.

"Could do it at 9 30 tomorrow morning also. All right. The defendant is remanded to the custody of the college and county. Sheriff's department. All right. So the sentencing is tomorrow morning. And I suspect they'll throw the book at him. And he's found guilty of murdering his wife and his son, Paul. I've always felt that's what he did. His memory was very selective in the memory loss It seemed to occur at very propitious times the two to three minute period of time from when his son and wife were murdered. He lied about having been in the proximity of that murder. Those murders. But then video appeared, and he had been at the kennel with the dogs. And then he came up with some excuses or whatever it was. Nobody was buying it. People were very impressed with the manner in which he conducted himself when he was testifying. I don't think he made any mistakes when he was testifying. It's just that you can't overcome, even circumstantial evidence like that. They found the weapon or weapons no. But in murder cases, sometimes you don't. There is nobody else there. They couldn't show that anybody else was there. And in the end, he's found guilty, and he's found guilty in record time, I think. Some kind of record. Jury wasn't buying any of it. And the way he murdered his wife and son, and I won't describe that. You can look it up yourself. It's really horrendous. The way he shot his son. Back of the head. What happened to his head? When he did that, I don't care who you are, I don't care how much trouble you're in. I don't care how much debt yo, I don't care if you're drug addict.

I'm just trying to Bring something to the table that's not provided by the fifth federal government where this is concerned. I certainly agree. And one thing I read, um that I just got tickled to no end and I share it with everybody that I can and that concerns that covid vaccination. In that you can identify with being vaccinated and they can't say anything to you about it, because when you identify with it You've got to be right, right? Well. Liberals have never been accused of Not being Two sided like a coin if it has to do with a political agenda to bring in the LGBTQ community. Um it's fine if it has to do with the vaccine, which they have a totally different agenda for. It's not fine. And Deborah. You know, I'm if I got up tomorrow morning. God forbid, if I got up tomorrow morning and found out the United States government had just declared a national emergency. From coast to coast, requiring everybody to get vaccinated and have proof.

We have the best system of government of anywhere I've ever been. But that doesn't mean I'm going to lay down and roll over and put my Legs in the air like a dog. Um, when I believe something is going on, that's not beneficial to the American people. That's exactly true, and nobody should be forced to do something that they either have a belief against or that they just don't want to do and this vaccine is in that category. Deborah agreed. Very good call, Please let me hear from you again. Let's go to Roger in Waco. Roger. How are you? I'm good, sir. Glad to hear you're back in doing well. Thank you, sir. Thank you. I'll get straight to the point. My concern with them going door to door. It seems more to me like a census. And what are they going to use the census for other than to blacklist people are called people out. I'd be concerned how they would use that. How many people live with the residents. How many have been vaccinated? What are their ages? Roger. I'm going to be honest with you. When I first heard this yesterday, the first thing I thought was Wait a minute. You already did his senses. Of course, that was the cynical side of me coming out. Um, but there's got to be a reason. There's got to be a reason Roger and I think he would agree. There's got to be a reason why TV radio print mature print advertising, Uh, newspapers, billboards everywhere You turn You're being told to get vaccinated. Yet tens of thousands of people from all over the world are being allowed to flood this country with not so much as a band aid, let alone a covid test. It doesn't make sense. There's got to be something else going on. Yeah, and I've never seen our government pushed so hard for anything for something that's really not It's still in his test base. I mean, I'm not taking a shot because I already do injections of another sort. I don't know how it's going to react and I'm not willing to take that chance. Roger. I'm right there with you. It should be your choice. If you want to get vaccinated, Go get vaccinated. It's free. Everybody's giving them out. Um, if you don't want to get the vaccination, don't get it. I think as a free American, you at least have the right to say when? Where and how, Um some medicine or vaccine is injected into your body. I don't think that's the government's job. At any level.

And so now he's got to pay the piper like the piggy that he is it piggy pudding, pops. I'm not. I'm not. In our number one of the D a show tomorrow I do have to alter the time because this was another point of contention again talking to my wife about this because she is so frustrated that she's been involved and quote I'm not your prop was what was under to me last night point? Yes, has to take place. I am told at 7:10 A.m. eastern 4 10 AM Pacific. To give it a 10 minute window so that the baby is awake and we're not waking her up early. And it is she leaves at 7:20 A.m. eastern to go to her day care for the day and my wife gets on the road. So my wife doesn't want to. You don't have to come on camera, not camera ready and once Taylor camera ready, so it has to take place. That was the only thing I was told. 7:10 A.m. Eastern Or, she said, or tell the A. It ain't happening. That's oh, Awesome. So this is like when saved by the bell. Used to be on T V s, like 10 minutes after the hour. Got to tune into 705 or seven exactly these weird start times. Okay. I feel like in this case. I have to allow Daniel to play program director for the specific segment. I've dug her a deep enough hole. And Sean friend, a friend, man to man. We all love each other here. Just a quick word of advice tonight. Don't tell her to lay out her best tent to wear tomorrow morning on the show. Okay, buddy, don't go down that road again. I won't. I won't. Okay. So tomorrow morning, the pig bet is paid off. Vogues. What's your favorite part of the bet? What are you most looking forward to? Well, um, I mean, the visual of you with the pig nose, and the linking was great. But now The hatred that Danielle is going to be exuding through the simulcast while she's doing this is probably my new favorite thing like we will be able to see on her face. I think her fighting off the desire to maybe hold your head into putting a little bit too long. And put your life in danger, So I'm excited to watch that part of it now. Yeah. Bill 80. What are you most looking forward to? Tomorrow? I agree with bogus the exact the absolute chaos that will ensue between Danielle in Sean, uh, that that will bring a cackle. Through. Uh, my heart. Yeah, I think that's a good one. I also just think how Pudding filled and sloppy. Your snout is going to be after going bobbing for bacon is really going to be enjoyable just to see you pull your snout up from a bullet putting and have an entire face full of chocolate pudding dripping down is going to really, truly wondrous. So who's going to make the bacon? I'm going to take care of that tonight. I guess the beacon the pudding. I'll go to the store as you hear me very regretfully figure out how much putting to buy taken to buy. And then I don't know I might have to have you know, with this stick Mike here, my sister kind of catch the nat audio of it because obviously not going to be on the mic. As I'm buried in the pudding. We have to figure out the logistics of the zoom the camera, you know, but hey, look not the first go around here on remote as we figure out how to engineer this thing ourselves. So how will you make the bacon tonight or tomorrow morning. Tonight. I got first of all I have to literally make Canadian beacons. I have to take our sound check tomorrow morning. There's enough other stuff for the show that needs to take care of. I'll make the literal American bacon tonight and just put it in the fridge. Would you put bacon? Would you ever would? Would you prefer having Canadian bacon to to pig out all in that pudding? I actually don't because I feel like this floppy nous of Canadian bacon, absorbing or having chocolate pudding slide off of it is weird. I kind of feel I've already talked myself into just pretending This is chocolate covered bacon. That's kind of what I'm going with now and it has to be chocolate pudding, right? Not vanilla pudding.

I mean, yeah, we're promoting cannibalism. Yep. And that's that's the punishment here is that you need to learn a hard lesson of stop being such a pig and I'm not even going to bring up a tweet. That was the most piggy tweet of all time, because I really want to do a deeper dive on it. But I mean, over the weekend like I'm on Twitter for maybe six minutes over the course of my entire weekend, cause I'm on vacation. And your tweets always pop up to the top of my timeline. It's always like featured tweet and I'm like, Oh, God! What did Maria say now? And to dare say Can I ever catch a break with the teams I root for, like, ever? Is just the piggy ist tweet. It is simply the swine. Easiest, hunkiest pig tweet ever considering you root for the Yankees? The Giants and a next team that has three superstars on it. I don't ever want to hear you complaining. Like, Oh, my teams. I always root for these terrible teams. Can they ever catch a break like Jeffrey Mayer and David Tyree or the brakes of a lifetime for any fan ever? And they happened. In two of like championship multiple title windows for your team's pig. Literally a whole generation ago. There are plenty of walking human beings who knows sports now who have no idea or have no understanding of the Yankees are Giants being good teams. Giant have been the worst football team in the last five years. The Nets have never won a title in my life, the Rangers 11 Cup when I was seven, and the and the freaking Yankees it's been 12 years now. You're in the A L. C s every year. Great to win a World Series can't catch a break. It is going on a decade long in New York since the last New York Championship. I mean there. It's insulting to me to say that I can't catch a break over a decade now of nothing but misery and the closest thing we had no Kyrie and harden get hurt. That's misery. You. You have a tattoo. Mm. From a championship. That wasn't even your last championship. It wasn't your first championship. It was just one of the championships that you have enjoyed during your adult life, one of them where you happen to defeat the only undefeated team at 16 0.
