Inside Look at World’s First 3D-Printed Rocket

"Now to our series the new space race in our exclusive inside. Look at something that could revolutionize space travel. It's the world's first three d. printed rocket. Here's jacob board. It wants took thousands of american engineers more than a decade to get something into space. Now this company says it's huge three d. printers can make a rocket in two months. Maybe less we have a fourth generation printer if you haven't talked about publicly yet but it's ten times faster printing than this so instead of building a rocket few slides in sixty days. It'll take six days. Not only can the company make the big parts of a rocket like a nosecone but they can also make all the intricate components of the engines to one zero. The first launch plan for twenty twenty. Two relativity rockets is like a lower budget competitor to spacex carrying satellites for nasa the department of defense and a half dozen private companies at about a quarter of competing launch prices. But with one point three billion in funding it doesn't exactly feel low budget clients. I'm assuming are going to pay you enough to somehow make this all work more than enough to justify it. We make twelve million dollars launch from the customers. We signed up. We've signed up more launches than any other company in history before flying. Ellis doesn't just want to make deliveries into orbit though. I want to put a million people in mars. How far out into space do you think a commercial space industry can take it. It's really about the time line. And i think i liked it very much to back when we found founded the new world with christopher columbus. Yes certainly it'll be government. I dislike the new world was and then it'll transform into commercial. Ancient ambitions built on new

Door Dash Shares Fall 16 % After Release of Company's First Earnings Report

"Shares of jordache falling sixteen percent on friday after the company's first earnings report as a public company revenue was higher than expected but door dash lost hundreds of millions of dollars. Ron shouldn't a business like this. Be doing well at a time when food delivery is higher than normal. They're doing well but it's an expensive business to run and just haven't reached the level yet that they expect to see that that that path to profitability that relatively early stage companies like to talk about a little context. The ipo in december was priced at one. O two went up around percents the first day if you recall for somewhere in the high one fifty s today as you said first quarterly report as a public company. It was mixed results solid guidance with soft revenue up two hundred and twenty percent total orders of two hundred and thirty percent obviously covert. Is the main driver. There reported a loss of as you said of several hundred million. Three hundred. Twelve million dollars for the corridor That was bigger than last year's loss of one hundred and thirty four million so increased expenses lower profitability there. They did have adjusted ebitda. That was positive so cash flow was positive at ninety. Four million so that. That's one bright spot. The guidance expects fewer customer orders reduced or frequency smaller average orders in the back half of the year as the vaccine rolls out allows people to get back to restaurants again. I don't think we should be surprised about that. There was some artificial growth here built in because we were all stuck at home. It doesn't mean the door. Jordache isn't relevant and doesn't have a business model that will make sense in the future but it's going to go back to a more normal business. Looks like for them

Giving to Create a Legacy

"When we talk about legacy planning. We're talking about you. Typically for our clients that are independent. they're financially independent. Maybe reach the financial transcendent stage. They're talking about giving the talking about making significant gifts to family or to charity. And that's what i mean by legacy doing something to provide for others. that goes well beyond beyond our lifetime. Okay so if i am making a gift some to someone My child or in my case You know i've got a couple of grandkids. Now and i wanna give a gift to grandchild. Is that taxable to the person receiving the gift in other words. Am i going to be setting my grandchild up to have to pay taxes and not necessarily know just like if you give them a birthday present their taxed on that that gift and if you're giving them significant let's they're not necessarily taxed on that on that gift so that's a simple answer. Okay all right. Well i i know that if uncle sam head his way he might wanna show up at birthday parties and start taxing gasoline difficulty. Just just saying the attitude. He's got right now anyway. What about the person making the gift. I is there any ramifications for me if i'm if i'm gonna give a large gift like that that that's where this guy gets a little complex so possibly if the gift is large enough and i and i just want to briefly give some some basic tax concepts and some rules around that not to more people but tax planning is part of financial so we need to talk about it. The basics earned income meaning wages taxable as regular income and so his income from investments like dividends and interest. I think most of our listeners know that. And if you sell an asset that you've owned for longer than twelve months for for a gain you you've realized a long term capital gain and that gain is taxed at capital gains rates which can be lower than tax rates on on regular income. That's just the basics for larger estates and here. I'm talking about very large estates currently in excess of a million. I'm sorry eleven million. Five hundred and eighty thousand dollars for an individual and twenty three million one hundred and sixty thousand for a married couple for states in gifts in excess of that amount of the federal government is going to taxed tax the giver at forty percent well for large estates. The tax could be very significant in here. I think this is really a transfer tax not necessarily tax only a death because you're making very very large gifts that exceeds those limits. Eleven eleven million five hundred and twenty three million one hundred sixty thousand. Those are also taxed to the to the person giving not to the receiver of those assets and then another. There's another level of tax at least in seventeen states plus the district of columbia. They're going to also levy a transfer tax estate tax for example in massachusetts we haven't attacked exemption of a million dollars per person and thereafter estates are taxed at point eight percent all the way up to point all the way up to sixteen percent. Taxes can be part of the conversation and and the and the planning so back to gifting. The federal tax law says an individual can gift fifteen thousand dollars to an individual per year. You can give to your grandchild. Fifteen thousand dollars in your wife can give to your grandchild thousand dollars oak. We call this. The annual exclusion anything in excess of fifteen thousand dollars is counted against your federal lifetime. Exemption which is it which we just described that eleven million five hundred and eight thousand dollars and that so it's counted against your lifetime exemption and attacks form that discloses that gift is required if it's if it's a gift of fifteen thousand dollars or less there's no tax form if there's a gift in excess of fifteen thousand dollars per person per year calendar year then there's a form that needs to be sent to the irs. That doesn't necessarily attacks do you. And your wife give gift your daughter. Thirty thousand dollars in a calendar year. No tax forms required. But if you give her forty thousand dollars you'll need to file a gift tax form disclosing a ten thousand dollar taxable gift. Now your lifetime. Exemption is reduced by ten thousand dollars. There's no tax do over. But now you've your lifetime transfer exemption amount is is a little bit less okay a little bit more detail than you might want but it's an important nation. Yeah that's perfect. Because i think that's a huge in planning for people that can afford it. Peter i'll be honest. I'm not in this category yet right. i'm not gonna. i'm not worried about going over that thirty thousand dollars a year gift. My children or my grandchildren but there are a lot of people out there that are right and they need to know this information. They need to know that can give them an annual basis. They just need to subtracted from the total mountain and play by the rules. Because you know you don't want to get yourself in trouble for sure. I think it's important. I also just from a tax law perspective. We don't we don't know what tax laws will be in the future cert. There's certainly not static in there definitely subject to change so under under the current law the lifetime exemption amount is scheduled to reduce back to the two thousand and seventeen exemption of five million dollars per person. And that's adjusted for inflation and that starts in twenty twenty six so under current law that that lifetime exemption amount goes is reduced from almost twelve million dollars down to almost six million dollars with y when you consider inflation. What happens to those people that have already. You don't reach that that mark. Maybe they've given away eleven million and then it goes back to five million per person are they are the grandfathered in i'm using air quotes there. The grandfather dinners. They're going to be any issue with that. Oh you ask a great question. And the the irs. They have determined that. There's not going to be a clawback. So yes they can make the gift now. It will always be exempt said. It's good so again. There's there's much needed information for those people that are in this situation. There's a time limit right. I mean there's there's kind of a ticking clock on on getting those gifts to somebody before it sunsets back to a much lesser amount. So the great information

Epic Games Puts Down Another $20M in Fortnite Prize Pools

"Certainly been an interesting year for epic games the developer of faith and its continued pushing the game into new territories, especially when it comes to interactive media and branding but they're also taking on Apple in an ongoing lawsuit. Apparently that lawsuit has really threaten the company's bottom line too bad though as yesterday epic announced another twenty million dollars would be put down for fortnite tournaments back in 2018 for the 2019 and 2020 Sears epic kok to put down 100 million dollars in total prizes on fortnite Esports events, and they came through they gave out a hundred million dollars over the last two years. The biggest paychecks came out of the former World Cup, which South forty million dollars awarded between the qualifiers and the main event many other events put up a couple of million here a couple of million. They're you know casual things in any other sport these would like a game. Massive Flagship events for epic. They were just a continuation of a huge promise. One of those events was the fortnite Champions series better known as the fmcs is the closest continuous structures. Fortnite Esports has ever had that event last year had a solid 3 million dollar prize pool yesterday. They announced the fortnite Champions series was jumping to twenty million dollars for the 2021 season off epic blog posts. They made it clear where exactly the money's going. First of all it's being more heavily weighted on winners than in the past where qualifiers would paid out pretty nicely this you gotta make the finals if you want any do here's how the twenty million dollars breaks down. The first important split is between the F and C S and yet unnamed mid season and end-of-year events. The fmcs will have twelve million dollars for its thorns. Well eight million is being held for events based off winners and qualifiers in previous f n c s events, so they're like part of the ecosystem but they're not part of the four individual Seasons wage. Brings me to the next split that twelve mil is being split among the 4f NCS Seasons leaving 3 mil per season. The seasons will happen along with the actual Seasons with the first one month beginning in late January early February. I believe don't have the date in front of me and ending in mid-march and so on and so forth through spring summer fall you guys you guys are seasons work. The final split is across seven different regions. And this is where it gets a little bit more confusing. Those seven regions are Europe Brazil Oceania the wage East Asia and then n a but it's split into two regions. Each one is not weighted equally either Europe has one point three million dedicated specifically to it the highest of any prize pool sneeze to Regions combined finish at just under 1. Mil Sil is next with three hundred grand then Asia with a hundred and fifty Grand Middle East with 120 and Oceania with ninety. It's both a bath. Viewership as well as a catering to where the best players are that make up for that

What is happening with the Uighurs in China?

"In China's northwestern province of Xinjiang the government has locked up more than a million workers a Muslim minority in a vast gulag. The whole province is a surveillance state within a surveillance state. The government claims it's de radicalizing population prone to separatism. People in Xinjiang in your happy life people call for older to restored each in. China of course, is strongly opposed to any torture and prosecutor and discrimination of any avenue. Good people. This is not the case in. Child. The reality is that it's carrying out crimes against humanity. We're going to take a look at how the repression is tearing families apart and preventing leaguers from even having families. We'll speak. With. googlers forced always to look over their shoulders. And will find deeper complexity in the party's ethnic repression on a visit to a tourist town in south western China. Own. The government is persecuting not only adults but hundreds of thousands of children to. Reporting by the Economist has unearthed government documents that show not de Radicalization. It's a campaign to crush the weaker. Islam. Faith to erase their cultural identity to chip away in their minds and in their bloodlines at what makes them weavers. It's difficult to get firsthand accounts of what's happening. Clearly the weaker inching John are unable to speak. But some brave souls have managed to escape and to tell their story. Our China Affairs at its her Gotti Epstein has been speaking to one of them. Presume Daoud and her three children, Fridays? We're probably the most terrifying day of the week. That was the day when officials would question students and schools in. The interrogators were looking for clues about the students lives at home. They wanted to know whether parents prayed or used Islamic greetings or talked to the children about the Prophet Muhammad. If the answers were in satisfactory they could result in a family member being sent to what they call a vocational training centre. or The camps in Xinjiang New Gulag. One Bologna. Bake. As. Miss Dogwood told me her children would be nervous that they would answer. Wrong. And get her sent back to the camps where she spent two months in two thousand eighteen. Kept. A. Terrible. saw. The Donald Families Experience in this regard is is quite common and Chin John. Absolutely. People Focus when talking about the workers on the detention camps but really Xinjiang is an open air prison. For twelve million dollars, their surveillance both low tech and high tech Miss. Dodd Dawood told me of an APP installed on her phone and where afterwards when she. Used traditional Islamic greeting on the phone. She was called minutes later by her. Local police asked her why she did that. Victim get little bug Emerson S Allama. amendment. Get. Across the region, families will be appointed to write and read articles praising Seton King. Others might have to write and read hands to ethnic harmony and some have to praise other policies that the party is imposing on them including the placement of quote unquote Han relatives in their homes and given that much of this has has come out now in how do officials in an Giang justify that that level of surveillance Chinese officials say that they are doing this in the interests of the weaker pupil they say that they are fighting the three evils of terrorism extremism and separatism. They say, they are making Xinjiang's safer and they say they're making the weaker pupil happier. But in reality, the experience of workers in the camps and even outside the camps is one not of training for the workforce but of indoctrination of trying to strip them of their relief, zero city or of any sort of cultural practices which stripe them as efforts to be distinct and separate from China. So what happens to those who were deemed to broken these many tiny rules? Well, leaguers like Ms Dour are placed in the camps Kerr offenses was for. From Pakistan, where her husband is from visiting. Pakistan. A number of years earlier. Accepting money from a foreigner who has a family friend who lived in China and securing an American visa these are all things that police asked her about a four sending her straight off to a detention camp but she's apparent. I mean what happens to the children of Leaguers who are who are detained? Well, this is the problem that the Communist Party itself is having to face up to because they are struggling to deal with the children of the parents of detained in local work documents that we obtained the officials us a chilling tra- -nology to refer to children whose parents are being held by the state. They're called Don Kuhn or single hardship or swung double hardship depending on whether one or both parents. Has Been sent away and what the documents also reveals that they're struggling to keep pace. They want to place these children in boarding schools basically, and so they have spent a tremendous amount of money expanding boarding facilities at schools across sin John just in the last couple of years, and what are these schools like is not like kids version of the Gulag you described for adult that's not too far off I. mean. These schools many of them have high security fencing and that's even true of free kindergartens and they are places where the kids are kept. These are cited even in state propaganda sort of celebrated. But those kids are as young as months old the propaganda describes as being well fed well, cared for happy learning the national language. Chinese. The point of this propagandist to convey the notion that they are helping the. Wiegert children but obviously, the effect is much different. We've seen testimonies from Chinese teachers who volunteer work in these areas that described children in pretty bleak conditions and in terrible emotional states. But what do you mean by diluting the culture on the surface of it? This just looks like oppression does right and suppression, but it's pressure that's really designed to reduce the influence of the weaker people and even their numbers. Their policies supporting confirming ethic marriage trying to encourage weaker girls when the girl enough to marry Han men and their rewards associated with that those included job of flat or even keeping family members out of camp. And then there are other ways that they're literally trying to reduce the growth at least of the wieger population China enforces limits on families is in John. So women are being fitted with you at a much higher rate than the rest of China. Women with three children, which is the limit in rural. Xinjiang. are subjected to sterilization or a great risk of that. Ms Dawood yourself says, she was subjected to sterilization two thousand eighteen. The most abilities maintenance, this hustle bonetti based. So what do you think is going on here? Any seems the goal for the Chinese authorities is more than simply to to break the spirits of the weaker. I would say the situation meets every category of crimes against humanity literally has been defined by the Rome Statute International Criminal, court have forcible transfer population. You have imprisonment the prosecution against the identifiable group have the enforced disappearance of persons. It's a term that's codified international law and I think it's pretty clear and given that how should the world respond what is to be done about this? The most important thing is that governments need act they should offer asylum seekers. Should sanction officials in Xinjiang that are responsible issue banned goods made with forced labor I most important governments should speak up I think the right moment to call for action. You could see maybe China's cloud cracking a little under the weight of these horrific revelations. There are more people standing up to China and fewer standing with him today. There is a sign of hope for human rights and there is a sign of hope for the oppressed we were people in China.

Three neat venture rounds, and Alibaba’s latest

"All right. So talking about the weekend well, here's what's up as the American election looms and the holidays beckon things kind of slowed down this weekend. Now, it's a little bit soon to say that this is the new normal, but certainly, it felt more like a traditional late October weekend if that makes sense. So posts covering new rounds where little bit light there wasn't a lot of news. There wasn't a big acquisition that drove the Monday morning chat cycle so here. Are Some things that did happen that really do matter but I think we can all exhale just a little bit as we head into the second half of October. So according to TECH WRENCH DOT com, you may have heard of it. alibaba group is going to spend about three point six dollars to take a controlling stake in Sun art. One of China's largest big box supermarket chains after transaction is complete, alibaba will own about seventy two percent of art this calm i. Because the Amazon wholefoods I, mean this seems to be relatively similar. What's interesting is Alibaba actually invest in son are back in two, thousand, seventeen million just under three billion for just over a third of the company. Now, this matters because that's part of Alibaba's quote new retail strategy new retail kind of blurs the lines between online and offline commerce. This should sound pretty familiar to all of us have seen Amazon, to this inside of its now big buck stores and other people are trying to do curbside pickup even small businesses it appears. That like this e commerce world that we all think everything's going to become we'll still have a larger physical footprint than we probably anticipated. So Fun to see what China is doing. Think about, what happens our marcus down the road Alibaba out a lot of money even during relatively bad economic times worth catching up on and it kind of good news this morning space x fired another sixty satellites into the sky as part of its starlink project to speak at all really moved the boonies when Musk and company done bring internet? Everywhere. So turn to funding around this morning, our bread and butter I found a few really really cool ones despite the talk of a slowing new cycle anyways in no particular. Here are three start ups that are funny runs out that are worth checking into if you have the time. We're GONNA START WITH API, which is a I F I. M printers pronounced eight five new they have announced a fourteen point five million dollar round this morning the company is calling this a pre series b according to crunch base news, which sounds like a series a. plus maybe a series B. minus or really just called a series B.. It's fourteen point five, million dollars any investors in the round include qualcomm ventures, serve ventures, translink capital, and a new investor clinic quench base news called Plum. I never heard of plum alley or serve adventures just goes to show how many theses firms there are out there right now, all that. Aside, what does if I do? Well, they build checkout free experiences for consumers. Essentially, they allow other folks to build and operate autonomous stores. So my read is like this Amazon go but for everybody crunch news post up on this, according to that article, fourteen stores from a fire in the market lots more coming off of capital here. Exciting to see the Sir Technology Spread more broadly I'm not entirely sold on it yet. But of course, always hard to know what's going to be the future and a lot of people are betting that this is that next up, we have law Maddox, a San, Diego based startup that is building software for lawyers kind of marketing crm. Suffer Lawyers. It has raised two point, five million dollars in seed funding always nice seen actually seed funding sized seed round very rare in twenty twenty. Why do we care about this? Well, we've known that for a couple of years vertical sats, which is software aimed at one particular slice of the market one particular. Law or like gardening has been pretty hot for a while. So why not this lawyers have money target them take some of that money gee-gee funding round was led by any act ventures forefront venture partners, and then of course, rebel ventures and bridge venture partners took part I know about half of those firms again. So many VC firms out there kind of crazy according to TC. A big part of what law maddox wants to do was help automate marketing tasks for law firms to big part of their business of nurture clients to the backslapping handshaking. Stuff really does matter even in the digital realm and like you said, alerts have money. So this round probably GonNa work out pretty well law maddox. And for a third run, we're GONNA leave the US and talk about cheaper which raised twelve million dollars. Now I try to proud correctly on the show because it's respectful. In this case, it's H. I. E. R., which is not chipper nor is it Go cheaper best shot. anyways.

Political Ad Nauseam

"As much as campaigns want to keep spending secret federal law actually requires TV stations around the country to disclose all the political ads, the campaigns by and those TV ads account for something in the ballpark of sixty percent of campaign ads. Spending a lot of the rest is stuff like Google and facebook ads at those companies actually don't have to disclose as much information about the ads. So today we're going to focus on. TV. Spending the majority of the spending. So think of the United States as a giant game board to campaigns walk around the board they put some of their ad money down this part. Of the country a little bit more over here, and the way they put that money down tells us what places they think are most important for winning the election. If you're looking just at the state level, the bronze medal goes to Wisconsin Sixty, four, million dollars, worth of TV ads they're not surprising. Wisconsin was one of those states that trump flipped from the democratic column back in Two Thousand Sixteen Silver Medal Pennsylvania with one hundred, seven, million dollars worth of TV ads also not surprising Purple State with twenty electoral votes and in first place with one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars America's favorite election meltdown waiting. Oh Florida, my beloved Florida. Now, this is just are beginning calculation. We're going to dig in more, but there are lessons to learn just looking at the big picture the big campaign game board. Yes. So so take Florida this is not a monolithic place. You're going to have super republican areas like the panhandle and then big democratic areas around places like Miami and you might imagine that the most. Cost effective thing is for the Republicans to completely pull out of the democratic strongholds and vice versa. But in fact, neither political party is doing that the whole state is getting bombarded with ads from both sides Daniel. Butterfield. From the Super PAC PRIORITIES USA she says it can start to turn into something like an arms race. So when you see your opponent spending money in a market, it really raises The question of should I be spending money there to to keep up area competitive and if you want to understand why political spending just keeps going up, it's at least partly because of his arms race if your opponents bins more in, Tampa you have to spend more in Tampa which in turn makes the cost of ads in. Tampa that much more expensive. Next thing you know you blue one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars in Florida. Danielle says, the arms race thing is not just irrational fear. There's a real electoral cost to waving the white flag in a particular area. If you're in an ad market and your opponent clears out, that is great news for you. You have the airwaves to yourself. Your advertising goes a lot further in terms of impact than if you have to opponents that are. Driving opposite messages is there like a particular tipping point to that that sort of campaign folks like you gotTa. Spend the twenty percent otherwise. Like what counts as as not being drowned out. Good? Yeah. There is actually a lot of areas some data behind like what is the particular percentage that is required? It's I'd say that's probably more of a secret sauce that I wouldn't necessarily WanNa name on this podcast for you know that numbers, you're just tell me. I I. Know. Roughly what percentage I think is useful is, is it twenty three percent? You got it. But okay. So fine lots of money being spent in Florida but this is not a very specific answer to our question who is the most expensive voter we want to be more granular, which is why we got her hands on a more precise data set. Thank you advertising analytics. This data set is GonNa let zoom in on every single television market in the entire country. So for example, we know that forty million dollars has been spent in the Orlando Daytona. Beach Melbourne market. Compare that to the grand rapids, Kalamazoo Battle Creek Michigan market where it's twelve million dollars and sure there's more people in Orlando but still, how are the campaigns arriving at exactly forty million and exactly twelve million to help answer that we brought in some help Michael Beach. CEO. Crushing Media Michael Runs an advertising analytics company now, but he has worked in the past for the presidential campaigns of George W Bush John McCain Mitt Romney, and the reason we wanted to talk to Michael is his whole job. is to figure out where companies or sometimes political campaigns should place millions of dollars. Worth of ads Michael has all this fancy proprietary software. If you're an advertiser, he can tell you whether you should be focusing your ads on like Republicans, with Minivans are Democrats ride motorcycles or neither. He's got all these different attributes in his computer thousands of attributes for. Anything from certain partisanship to likelihood to buy a Ford truck into those do those specific categories correlate. Yes and no it like it's pretty geographic if you're looking at northeast, Ohio or you're you know. You're in Alabama in the Senate race. that. Wouldn't be a probably a good signal. Reich is like. As owner everyone drive structure. Now, the reason we went to Michael is because we thought it might be interesting to look at how many dollars were being spent on any given swing voter swing voters in theory are people who might be influenced by a political ad. The problem is it is very hard to pin down exactly how many of these people are out there but Michael Software can at least take a stab at it what is GonNa do is go through all these data sets to first identify how many likely voters there are in a particular TV market and then identify which of those has even the tiniest probability of changing their vote and a lot of this calculation is just sifting out the diehards. If you are somebody who voted in the last five, Democratic primaries were every year you donate to the R. N. C. You are out. But maybe your party affiliation switched a couple of times. Maybe you're a first time voter that may put you in this bucket the basically using generic party model and generic it's party not not candidate. Driven in other words, we're estimating voters chances to swing between Democrat and Republican as opposed to trump and biden specifically. But there's still does give us a way to compare across TV markets and when you re ranked the country based on dollars spent per swing voter the markets are not in Florida. In fact, the top five ad markets are all in Pennsylvania and number one on that list where campaigns are spending around ninety dollars per likely swing voter. Is My home television market the region in western Pennsylvania in and around Erie Pennsylvania. Okay. So Kenny you grew up there like what is it? What is the what are we talking about just to be clear I grew up in Meadville which is south of Erie, but it's in the market and like yeah, this is a region with a lot of manufacturing jobs these jobs have been leaving. It's predominantly white its having the. Same kind of brain drain problem that a lot of the other parts of the so-called rust belt are having. But look like I don't know anything about who a potential swing voter would be in the Erie television market. This is why we have Michael's fancy software. It can help us understand who that is. What can we know about the Eerie Market area? How does it compare to the rest of the country? Like who's there? It opened up my magic machine here. Michael Punches Eerie plugs in a few numbers so it's running. Then he opens up a tab that lets us compare the Erie population as a whole to just the likely swing voters. So now I look at in. Eerie. For instance, the average adult is fifty three years old if you just take the whole population in the market. Target, audience if you said. swing likely to turn out is forty seven other words. Michael's machine is telling us that the average swing voter is is six years younger than the average, their forty, seven years old, and the other incredible thing about Michael's machine is that it's also able to spit out this whole media plan for how to reach those people. The machine can name the single TV show watched by the most swing voters. Each week that show in the Eerie area is the OT on Fox football shows or wrap up of the day's games. That'd be fair. that is one of the most watched shows in the entire country. But the numbers do show that in terms of efficiency like sports would be a pretty good way to get your ad in front of a decent chunk of swing voters in Erie Pennsylvania Espn you can reach sixty percent on eerie and a week. Again, this target in this market if the secret to understanding what the campaigns are thinking is to learn where the most money is being spent per swing voter. That place

Kentucky AG Warns to Not Let "Celebrities, Influencers and Activists" in Wake of Breonna Taylor Decision "Capture Our Emotions"

"Here, Kentucky's Attorney General. Daniel. Cameron. Today. According to Kentucky Law. The use of force by mattingly in Cosgrove was justified to protect themselves. This. Justification bars us from pursuing criminal charges. In Miss Brianna Taylor's death justice is not often easy. Does Not fit the mold of public opinion, and it does not conform to shifting standards. Now is the Reverend Al Sharpton. The host of MSNBC's politics. Nation. He's author of the New Book Rise up confronting a country at the crossroads which will be available Tuesday Reverend Sharpton, your reaction to what the attorney general had to say and what's unfolded tonight in Louisville. Out My reaction is that certainly it is not surprising, but it is still allowing to see that a grand jury and grand jury usually a totally framed by what the prosecutor plus before because that's the only lawyer in the role to come back and say that we will charge and also for all the violence that he did cause and the cause for those. Surrounding an area on apartment that we kill someone, but we will not charge him with killing. Someone shows an outrageous an unbelievable kind of justification for doing nothing around the death of Brianna Taylor. Brianna Taylor was not even mentioned in the indictment if anyone wants to know why we are saying black lives should matter they acrylic saying Louisville. The day did not math. That attorney general to even attack those of us that supported the family at the family's request saying that the celebrities and influence activists on that wealth from end to Kentucky or should not there to give their views when we're welcome there to watch horses run around the track for the Louisville Dirt Louisville Kentucky Derby. But we're not welcomed to stand up for the life of value and worth of a black woman who's only actions that night issue to better in our own home committing no crime involved with no criminal activity. That's why we continue to. That's why we should vote in. We should use the fact that you can vote in November even in Kentucky even though we couldn't vote the grand jury we ought, to sin, Mitch McConnell into retirement as a deposit on the justice we want for the retailers of. I want to let the audience here what you were just referring to the Kentucky Attorney General who is a Republican talked today about activists from out of state who don't live in Kentucky. As if they have no right to talk about this, let's listen to that. There will be celebrities, influencers and activists who having lived in Kentucky. We tried to tell us how to feel suggesting they understand the facts of this case that they know our community and the Commonwealth better than we do. But they don't. Let's not give into their attempts to influence our thinking or capture our emotions. It sounds like he was talking about you. Talking about me and many others than many that up right there on the ground. From out of state but let me remind people that all of the activities of Leonidas Attorney Ben crump was at the invitation of the Family WanNa. Justice. And if you know it's an old playbook calling people outside Agitators Monitor King Junior and John Lewis Super Far greater than us will call that that will not in any way stopped mood that's gone on all over this country and the way to deal with this, we must try to change the laws and one way to do that is to change the lawmakers. We must turn our pain in the power in the rubble must continue to non-binding march to keep these. Alive. Riyan Taylor matting her life matters and we don't have to be a citizen of Louisville to say that and many Citizens Louisville are saying that as well and just last week. The right thing did happen on the civil case the city settled with the family for twelve million dollars and you know that settlement never would have happened without you and others bringing national attention to this case. Well absolutely, and why would you settle for that record amount of money if there was no wrong had been done and one of the reasons that we marched by the tens of thousands in Washington just three weeks ago and details mother spoken that much is because we clearly need is George Floyd policing injustice act passed by the Senate, passed by the House that would also make will officers if they commit a crime are subject of of the lawsuits and pretzels have to deal with it taxpayers paying forward individual offices do and are not held accountable for we need to change the laws by changing the lawmakers.

Citywide curfew for Louisville goes into effect, one officer indicted in Breonna Taylor case

"Curfew has been in place in Louisville Kentucky since nine PM tonight. Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that a grand jury has returned no criminal charges against the to Louisville police officers who shot and killed Brianna Taylor Grand Jury did return a felony charge of wanton endangerment against a third officer who was outside of retailers apartment building when he fired ten shots that luckily hit no one. Cal, Perry is covering the situation for MSNBC tonight on the streets of Louisville and he will join us in a moment what happened to Brianna Taylor during the police raid of her Louisville apartment that left her dead. From police bullet. was enough to get one of the officers involved fired three months ago. It was enough to force the city of Louisville to agreed last week to pay a settlement of twelve million dollars to Brianna Taylor family for the city agrees was the wrongful death of Brianna Taylor. But it was not enough to bring criminal charges against the two officers who shot Brianna Taylor according to Kentucky's Attorney General Daniel Cameron who today revealed the findings of a grand jury but was guided in those findings by the Attorney General. What happened when police fired their guns? That night is what happens most of the time when police fire their guns in the line of duty? Their target most police bullets miss their targets most of the time. And sometimes, that's a good thing. And sometimes that's a tragic thing. In this case, it was actually both the police were aiming at whoever fired a gun at them when they burst through the apartment door in the middle of the night bjarne tellers boyfriend says, they didn't identify themselves as police officers in the dark. He grabbed his gun and fired his bullet hit and wounded officer. Jonathan Mattingly when Mattingly Officer Miles Cosgrove fired in the direction of that gunshot they missed. Kenneth Walker they fired twenty two bullets between them. Between the two of them. And they missed their target, every one of those bullets, their target. But six of those bullets hit Brianna Taylor. One of the bullets fired by officer. Cosgrove was the shot that killed her according to an FBI crime climb crime lab analysis made public by Kentucky's Attorney General today everything about the police work I just described to. You was judged to be wrong by the city of Louisville and that is why the city settled the wrongful death lawsuit brought by Brianna tell his family last week for twelve million dollars the city of Louisville, and that settlement also promised police reforms to Bernardo tellers family. That is a formal legal statement by the city of Louisville. The killing Ron Taylor was wrong but was it criminal? That was the question for the jury. We don't know what evidence was presented to the grand jury. As of today, we only know that the grand jury did not find a crime in the killing of Brianna Taylor, but they did find criminal conduct at the scene by a third officer. The best description I've heard of what officer Brett Hankinson did. Is On the New York Times podcast daily which describes what he did after he ran out of the apartment building and was actually out in the parking lot outside of Briana Taylor's apartment. and. Keep begins blindly firing through Brianna window and her patio door both of which covered with blinds so he had no way of seeing inside The bullets from bread hang concerns gone. We believe are the ones that ripped not just through parliament but also through one of the apartments that was in the back where a young woman who was pregnant and her five year old child were asleep in separate bedrooms. And he got fired for that. And those were the shots that when they missed their target. That was a good thing. A very good thing because they didn't hit anyone ten police bullets fired into an apartment building where they could have killed a five-year-old child ten police bullets that could have kill bet, Charles pregnant mother, and those ten police bullets luckily missed everyone. At that apartment building today a grand jury in Louisville, decided that those ten police bullets were criminal. The grand jury charged Officer Hampton with the felony of Wanton Endangerment Kentucky Law says a person's guilty of wanton endangerment when circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life he wantonly engages in conduct which creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another person and that according to the Kentucky Attorney General and the grand jury impaneled is the only crime was committed when thirty two police bullets were fired. After Lou police broke into Brianna tellers apartment in the middle of the night.

"Prime time it is so I got another one of these I've got I've got I've been tearing the stories around but I still find this Halloween candy things the number you said no no don't worry about it's a minute though is not Waterbury Connecticut so this other story popping up today which I've done a bunch of these but this is the latest is this business about letting people out of prison early and I I don't understand what this is all about I really don't but in in Oklahoma the Oklahoma prisons laden yesterday they freed five hundred people on a single day and they said it was because of the fact that blown has one of the nation's highest incarceration rates but they passed a law downgrading minor crimes in an effort to change that so I mean this is one of those where you can get behind the a debate podium debate this this back were or fourth I mean it just it's one of those they had four hundred and sixty two inmates doing time for drugs drug possession all and the way that the New York Times wrote about this was or similar non violent crimes I'm sorry I don't know why people think that that drug dealers are non violent or drug users even if you have a drug problem then you go through your money and you lose all your body and you lose your job you lose your family you lose everything and you're addicted to drugs and you can't get off the drugs that you need drugs but you don't have any money what are you gonna do well you break into that house down the street and you then you go in there you grab something that you can run off to a pawn shop with and try and get some money for it you know cameras computers that sort of so that's what you do now that's okay so far we're not violent right but what if somebody is home and they catch you what if somebody comes home and they catch you people die I mean it's one of those where you've got to fight because they're going to try to protect their property and you're in there stealing things so it's there's a whole movement in our country I don't know how you feel about this whole business about the fact that we've been too tough on people so in Oklahoma the pardon and parole board recommended commuting the sentences of five hundred twenty seven prisoners with about twenty six thousand inmates in Oklahoma the governor Kevin this debt order the computations and everybody walked out of prison yesterday there's a there's sixty five that are being held back because of issues with their immigration status yeah issues so in other words they're here illegally while once Oklahoma holy before why that's no reason to hold him so this was a surprise a lot of these people did not know that they're going to be coming out so they are insuring that the inmates are released with a state issued driver's license dad with us because of the fact that that's going to be important for them if they're out looking for a job or looking for housing you got to have a driver's license so the moat the majority of these people that are being released have been of on average been behind bars for three years where they were sent out yet they've been and they have another on average one and a third year to go to almost five years three out of four are men the state of Oklahoma says it will save the state twelve million dollars in prison costs yeah but I still go back to they've been doing studies where they've tried to do Lester drug courts drug prisons dad and let people get out because there because they have drug drug problem okay but the the heavy majority of them the recidivism rate is so high the the right back on the streets doing the same thing as they were before so this I'm I'm kind of surprised this is Oklahoma but they are there's other states that are that are also doing the same thing ACLU is behind all of this and they continue to push state legislators to pass the other changes look what happened in Washington DC Kim Kardashian come walk yeah because she's Kim Kardashian so she gets access to the president LG sweet stock if we talk to the president in do prison reform and the guy behind prison reform Jared Kushner and the reason he's behind prison reform is because Daddy went to jail and he doesn't like the fact that Daddy went to jail he thinks jails are bad people that run jails are bad the police are baton law enforcement's bad so I don't know where this is all going but they got five hundred and some people that were in prison yesterday morning are now wandering around somewhere I don't know where they are I mean if I was that might get on the next bus out of Oklahoma I'd go somewhere else so the camera crews were there there was a bunch of people crying reunited with their families and it was all very wonderful but I just can't help but think about all of these people I presume that there are people who were victimized by them so on one hand were yelling about we're gonna run down to Mexico we're going to do with the war against the the cartels and on the other hand we got a bunch of people that the drug war against users have put in jail and we're just gonna let him out because they're wink wink nonviolent I don't know there's a guy who's a state director of the Oklahoma for right on crime the group at the forefront of conservative it efforts to reduce incarceration in the state why are we trying to reduce incarceration if you commit a crime do your time I'm not quite sure what this movement all about well the the evil cobra brothers one of whom passed away but the other one they were before the best way to do called brothers big conservative money right they've been pouring millions of dollars supporting groups all around the nation on trying to reduce prison sentences I don't know call me old fashion I just thought that these people ball committed crimes and they need to do their time it will be I know they're already doing studies on the people that have been let out because of drug offenses and that therefore we're not going to put him in prison because they're just drug users but the problem with that is that most of the ones that I've seen the studies they're back to they have the same problem they have the same they have the same issues and a lot of it is they cannot get jobs so they go back to where they came from the Linda hang on I I've got to take a break here and I want to give you sufficient time we got less than a minute before I have to take a break I don't know why either what what's all this let everybody out of prison thing why even arrest people why not you save a lot of money if you got rid of your police departments they're expensive you know phone numbers eight five five two nine five sixty six hundred for those of you in Oklahoma good luck keep an eye out lock your doors you can also find my phone numbers all the ways to late to the show on my website which is Tom Sullivan dot com is.

"Yeah I do a real quickly as we'll get into a deep dive later on this in the package of the bears in anticipation of the bears and Packers kicking off the one hundred season of the NFL this week's episode of Peyton's places on ESPN plus this is really good centers on the history of the bears as we continue to celebrate hundred years in the NFL with papers places now streaming exclusively on ESPN plus many travels the country to see the people some places that made the NFL the NFL the bears of course are the original franchise it would Decatur Staleys for those that did know to begin with they were they were the Decatur Staleys and episode eight Peyton sought out the bears biggest fans SNL superfans are just part of the episode pacing all paid also spent time with the bears that best represents Chicago iron Mike Ditka of course the first eight episodes in a string exclusively on ESPN so I give you one more just because you brought a you brought more about the game and such are through one hundred and ninety eight meetings of these two teams. they are separated. by just twenty six point that's incredible post season six for I think it's a hundred I have only met twice in post season which white okay I'll give you another one despite this long history that meant the plasters twice they let met in the two thousand ten and its C. championship Packers when yep and in nineteen forty one divisional round bears win that as you get there is the championship game was bonkers that was the one that was out outdoors. right what is that. right now nice arms something about outdoors it was called Nevermind two thousand ten yeah. does that does that Jay Cutler all that okay number. no that was the Jay Cutler thing where was he hurt was he not hurt blah blah blah all that kind of stuff so so that would that was part of it anyway meetings in the post that's incredible knowing that twice which is really weird when you think about it so another team that has aspirations to get to the Super Bowls Indianapolis Colts now. a black hole when Andrew luck abruptly retired a week ago and everyone crazy but I think the colts have made two very interesting moves are going for first and foremost much in the same way Antonio brown went from zero to thirty coining the phrase from Ron Lewis Reddick when he finagle is way out of Pittsburgh to go to Oakland got the thirty million dollars in guaranteed money the colts did the right thing I think over the weekend for a couple of reasons and the benefactor was clearly Jacoby percent who is now they're starting quarterback I think he had one year left on a deal I was just saying about four million dollars final year is getting a three point four one million dollar that lets up that by about ten times because his new deal is thirty million dollars over the next two years correct yes it is and and I run those a four year three point four deal his base salary this year was going to be two million dollars okay so he did more than two dozen others agree and if you think about it that makes all the sense in the world to me in an apples cold because it gives Joe B. Jacoby per set some sort of security but it also doesn't tie them to him long term essentially what we've got is a two year dating period. right that that's what we've got looking for here Hey we think this is going to work there's something to assure you that we'd like it to work and if it does work you know what there's a whole lot of cash agrees the Rudy Miller two years that is not a bad campaign for a quarterback by any dollar to the imagination no shot not exactly we do expect for a guy that is started you know the handful of games the Jacobi bursitis started out about these outside of the one seasons out makes all the sense for him we got a nice payday now and he put himself and while he didn't put himself in position and like help get himself in this position but now we has a chance to really himself a payday in all honesty I saw that day on I thought okay I would have expected something like that. the Brian Hoyer signing Verrett is unbelievable I understand that's not probably going to find out what Brian where is made in his career I need to know what he made his career but understand this he's a new one one. our buyer a rookie right. right George said I'm your sentiments with the patriots right heart got caught correct yes someone stop me if I'm wrong no you're right he got caught the colts signed him gave him a twelve million dollar deal with nine million of it guaranteed three years for twelve million nine million guaranteed he got caught we got beat out by a rookie he got caught I got nine million guaranteed over for in that deal I is unbelievable to me their pager backup usually tends to pay wow so how about speaking to pay how about this he's made some money would you like to take a guess including the nine million guaranteed money because that's all we can put forward right would you like to take a guess as to what Brian horrors career earnings are now in the NFL added in the nine million guaranteed this current contract. push it a hundred fifty million hundred and fifty million no no no no. hundred fifty million government pushing eighty million. yes there is the legend Wayne gonna just messing around okay like a fifteen million dollars out with this contract he will made thirty one million dollar man look at look at thirty one million dollars like he really was a lot of losses. it is amazing just a minute I'm not a back up and be a point guard bachelor holder back is the best position yeah in all football if you just want to just get paid. it is it's one and just get paid that to me was a one round one wow you got the act itself good for him good for him it it is remarkable it is absolutely remarkable that that he got that kind of deal you pull the trigger by just hard drive between from Jerry about the backup quarterback for the patriots and their career earnings to date Matt Cassel career earnings obviously not in the league right now I don't believe although Matt Cassel this is Matt Cassel I think it was just something someone finally I got a magic Matt Cassel still in the league right now this would be the most Matt Cassel thing in the world. okay Matt Cassel current NFL free agent he'll probably be size of workers that's a castle drugs all world Jude massive party time Matt Cassel sixty five million dollars in career earnings Jimmy Garoppolo sixty three million dollars in career earnings Brian Hoyer twenty one million dollars are going to be thirty. yeah a career earnings man and he's walking. is it percent and thirty million dollars we were so absolutely wall so there's two things we know right if you want to be paid as a quarterback be a backup to Tom Brady and if you want to be an announcer on a network be a former Dallas cowboy and if you want to be a head coach in NFL no Sean McVay eggs. those three no. that is all we know about football as we head into week one the patriots backup quarterback get paid if you're a former cowboy odds are someone will offer you a network TV deal and if you have once met Sean McVay or at least had lunch with him odds are one of these days yeah very go it's in the aisle.

Here's Laura Saunders. Tax columnist at the Wall Street Journal, Laura explain. Uptick laughs here, the IRS paid more than three hundred million dollars to whistle blowers who turned in cases of corporate and individual tax sheeting, why the uptick are a couple of reasons this this has been in the law for a long time. And then it was expanded in two thousand six but that expansion is really just taking hold nail. And it's a special program backed by Republican Senator Charles Grassley, and it gives a third up to third while thirty percent of the revenue collected. When people hurt in very large cases of tax. She didn't cases where over two million dollars. If you know, a big cheating tax cheating case over two million dollars, and you turn it in and they accepted at they you could get up to thirty percent of what they collect need a good lawyer. I would imagine to help you. There are people have turn. Earned in prepared the package and her given Kip themselves, but usually you need a lawyer to help and the lawyers take about a third if the case is successful. There was one person who got a hundred million dollars in a reward. That's what they say. Now, this hipster is anonymous we we don't know who it is. But that's what the lawyer is telling me for turning it a large multinational corporation. That's that's the that's the ticket right there. Overseas sheet or something. Yeah. Something like that. I think the IRS is turning to doing this more with offshore offshore compliance programs. They used to have other kind of Wayne and Ted. They're looking for kids from abroad to turn in banks that have are harboring American tax cheats and things like that. We're speaking with Laura's Saunders, Wall Street Journal tax columnists pieces called the profitable prospects of snitching for the IRS. So explain the types of corporate cheating. The could go on here that the IRS might be looking for. Well types of cheating actually, corporate cheating involving arcane things like transfer pricing or inventory or something like that. There's also a people hiding money abroad. And and they've made it very clear that if people come foreigners come in in report cases, American sheeting that they could get rewards for it. Also, maybe gifted estate tax cases, somebody who's not declaring all the assets they have on an estate tax things like that. Finally, just very wealthy individuals. You know, people know that they're not paying their their taxes that there's fraud involved either not just cutting corners. I mean, this is where real fraud is involved in that that can yield a good cases. Well, the odds aren't good right for whistle blowers to claim something. Turn away many people at the door. They many many people and even the ones they accept only about one in seven actually gets an award. The the good news. I suppose we had so much more paid out last year than in the past. It was three hundred twelve million dollars in the year before it was like thirty million or something. So this this problem is sort of getting engaged in gear. And the other thing is that, you know, we touched on this earlier, you have to do a lot of work for them to take your case, they want they don't want to just have you. Call up and say, oh, my my neighbor has a new Mercedes, and he doesn't have a job. They want invoices and they one account records, and they want emails and internal memoranda, and in some cases, they wanna voice recording.

"Beverage right now. Please spit it out immediately. We have reason to believe someone to his gun at it. When you weren't looking host taxes. Wow. I just. I have New Year's you to look at that new year. They gave me they fitted me with what are these called? Buds ear buds or something? They're this. They're too big to be ear buds. I look like a man with two hearing aids looks like they poured hot wax in really not. I don't know that. I like it. Oh, but the hearing is unbelievable. I can hear what you're thinking. It's good. It's incredible. It's like your rabbit for Easter something you've got the new era bigger, Iran. That's exactly what I was. Hey albain. So I'm going to be a little discombobulated by these Wahl look at them. I think should have the rest of my ears dyed to match the plastic in these insets here. Right. Yeah. You know, you got to put makeup on after you put those land or get a different wig. Okay. Folks on Monday, it's miracle. Monday is okay. Lot of stuff to share. But in a couple of minutes. We're gonna be talking to a man who lives in Europe. Who's come to the US to share what he's doing in Germany? It's he wrote a book called the mosaic miracle. He's gonna tell us about it. But it has to do with immigrants. In germany. We all know that Europe has been overrun by people coming in from the Middle East, and it's a strange confusing situation. But this man, he's a Christian is doing something really beautiful. I have to say amazing. So that's miracle. Monday today in the show, featuring Stephen Beckwith, his book mosaic miracle in our two we met a young man at the an RV. Yes. And this guy he looks to be just breaking into his teens. Maybe fourteen. Yeah. Well, he's I think he's thirty one. I know what he's he looks really young. And he has a story that is just about unbelievable. He and his wife adopted, a frozen embryo. And they are now raising this wonderful human being it is mind blowing stuff wait till you hear the books called frozen, which is interesting. It knows frozen but not forgotten right disaccord after the frozen. So it's left at Disney thing frozen, but not forgotten. There you go. Well, this is a huge ethical issue in America. You'll see in a couple of weeks. We're gonna actually next week. I think we're going to have on the gentleman Nick Loeb who was engaged to so fever Gara they froze number of embryos together. And he broke up with her. And there's been a big battle in the courts. What do you do because? These are children or these are certainly potential children. I mean, the the the guy that we're we're gonna talk to an hour to has raised some of these embryos. They're human beings, they're babies that he loves so when you talk about a frozen embryo, you're not talking just about a frozen embryos. So this is a big issue can talk about it a lot more on this program update on unplanned the movie. Yes, it is up to twelve million dollars. Now it cost six million to make. So they've done. Okay. But I still have to say there are tons of youth groups out there church youth groups that they've not taken their kids to this. And I'm telling you straight up folks, you're wrong not to do that. This is a very important thing for young people to see I'm not saying below twelve. But I'm saying if you have teenagers, you have high schoolers this is a movie they need to see you should be thanking the filmmakers by going to the film by buying tickets for the youth groups if you don't do that. That shame on you. Because this is a gold up. Tune. There's no other to try to convince these kids, you know, by talking it's not gonna work when you when they see this movie, I'm telling you this teed up for parents. And I was speaking last week to the Greek Orthodox people in America. Greek Orthodox young people need to see this speak because I was raised in that extradition. I knew nothing about abortion. I knew nothing about a sexual ethic that that Christians believe in sex in marriage, only, you know, none of that is communicated in many, many churches and young people grow up and go into the world and they suffer and I did. And I write about it in my book whenever it's gonna come out fish out of water. This story my life and coming to faith. I suffered horribly other people suffered because of my actions. And so if you are in a position of leadership in church, but particularly Greek Orthodox church, and you do not bring these kids. It's on you folks, your part of the community. So you need to do this huge issues of our time. So you have to go and see this and get some knowledge about what's going. Well, the Greek Orthodox can be very cut off in some ways. It's a weird thing. And I'm here to tell you you gotta stop that. You've got to stop shielding these kids because. When they get into college. And when they leave high school, and they leave the community they only have what you've given them. And you know, you can wish, but wishing doesn't work prayer works. Okay. This weekend. Went to Danbury, Connecticut. Great, I visited my parents. Okay. And I did a little help helped him a little bit in the yard. And I got blisters. Look look at that. But it's I feel so blessed I was able to help my folks because they're getting up and it's not like they don't want to ninety two year old dad behind a lawn mower. Well, you know, my father and mother crazy enough, they'll do everything until you like scream, and you say stop that you shouldn't be doing this. But I also visited my old friends that tomatoes John to mania my oldest friend of the world we met in sixth grade. He's when I go to Danbury his folks like my second parents in Danbury, and I hadn't seen them in a while. So I stopped by visit them, and it's called to menial and Louisa mania these like my second parents. And I went to. Is it they had a wonderful time visiting them. And as I backed out of their driveway. I smashed my car into a phone pole. And I thought Eric, you know, you've backed out of this driveway forty zillion times. And so I had to go to the dealership and Danbury, Connecticut. How to get it? But everybody treated me. So well after say the Chevy dealership in Connecticut, they were fantastic. It's there on federal Chevy, volt is okay. Now, I'm telling you. I just wanna share my life with people. So people don't think I'm always writing books, you know. But it was it was a really interesting weekend and to have something like that happen. And then to have it. I took my dad I said, let's go to the Chevy dealership. See how see? I took it to the Jaguar dealer shou. No, I drive a Chevy. Okay. A Chevy, then Mary, and you are okay. What else do we have to share her and Wagoner's going to be on our two as well? Talking about the southern poverty Law Center. And by the way, since we don't have a lot of time. Let me just say there either. Oh. This is this is crazy. This is because I've been writing my spiritual memoir, I've been traveling into the past in my mind for months. And it can be really moving. Right. And I was writing about how I was in seventh grade, my friend, Scott Bennett, and I we're kind of into fishing and into what's called limb. -nology that's just freshwater biology and study of lakes, and we found this pond the secret pond, and we decided we would study the pond, I don't know what that meant. But we bought test tubes. And we did all this different stuff. And and so this would have been like nineteen seventy four seventy three seventy four. So I probably haven't seen the pond in over forty years. Right. So I was with my folks, Dan, but he was still light out. We had dinner early. Let's go for Dr. And we drove to the pond, right? And I got out and it had totally dried up while. It was the weirdest. It was a kind of a movie it's like forty five years being. Here's the pond now the ponds gone. It had just totally vapid any Comey thinking about time got you thinking about global warming. No known. It was not a big pond. It was not a pond, but it really have you ever done that where you go back to a scene from childhood. And you can't take it in like, it's just like, I don't know. Maybe you don't believe in that. Mike, my twin brother had childhood I didn't need to get that one. Only one twin they can only afford a childhood through one of you is reports. Incredible. All right before we come back with Stephen Beck. This is such a inspiring story. It's gonna inspire Americans. When you hear the story. Steven Beck of what to do with immigrants in America had had a handle this in a way that so positive. He could freak out before we go to that. Final reminder. You gotta see unplanned. That's number one number two. If you order anything from my pillow anything, I don't care. What it is. You gotta use the code Eric Metaxas. Tell your friends anybody can do it. Otherwise, they don't get the discount, right? All right. You don't want the TV discount? You want the good Eric Metaxas? Show radio discount. Eric. Or metaxis? All right. When we come back. We're talking to an American who spent most of his life in Germany ministering in Frankfurt incredible story in our two Nate Burt on frozen, but not forgotten stick around. I remember feeling so desperate in some trout. I was around by family and friends that love me any one of them would have listened to me. But I was so frayed of opening up to them to embarrass to talk about what was causing me so much pain. It felt like torture to be so close to people that would have loved to help me and yet to embarrass to ask for help. And then a few weeks ago. I heard about faithful counseling here on the radio hurston counselors, fellow believers, trusted, their AP's, not only share my faith..

"You get paid twelve million dollars a year. So wonderful. They also have some guys they can cut camera seven million. They have some room that they can get to.

Would you want to pay tannehill two years sixteen million? If you could get him for that. What you say sixteen total? Yeah. As an eight million a year. Yeah. If I'm a team that it doesn't have a solid starting quarterback. I'm in I'm in on that. And then I also I talked about this with Simmons this week. I think every team in the NFL should be trying to trade for Josh Rosen. Yeah. Why the hell not if he's available for a third round pick Peter King reported he's cheaper than pretty much every backup quarterback in the league on veteran Koch, and I agree with that. I also I don't think he's that good. I think he's going to be fine. I think he's impossible to evaluate what the situation was there last year. And even if you don't think he's going to be good. He's worth that price. When when Josh Rosen is thirty years old is he better than Ryan Tanna hilas now. Yes, okay. I believe that he is better not the same better. I think the chances are even that I think it's a fifty fifty proposition, and I would pay the money and pay the price tag of a third round pick to see that fifty fifty proposition through. That's what I would say. Okay. So you do you. I do anything for them. If you need an answer a quarterback if you're a team like the chargers, right? Why wouldn't you just roll the dice on it? You need a quarterback in two years. Yeah. I mean, honestly depends on their scouting it. Also, it also depends on if they think there's a second round pick or something or even a first-round pick that they like me I had a conversation with Daniel Jeremiah to combine. And I said, you know, so Dave Gettleman uses the phrase Kansas City motto, which is now been driven into the ground and in the ensuing week. But I said when you look at a team that has a veteran and might take that first round guy. Just give them a year or two who is identified aside from New York, obviously, dented, Pittsburgh and identified the chargers, and it took everything in my power not to say San Diego there. And and so I and I'm starting to think about it. And I could see maybe a I a late for found Picco into San Diego. But I could also I take your point which is that maybe it's easier to. Just trade for Josh Rosen and try to develop and see we have if if it's going to be a third round pick. I tend to think that if you get a couple of teams bidding in there. It goes to a second round pick. We'll say I would give up a second round pick for Josh Rosen, those Jewish correct? It depends on where it is in the second round. But I would give that up a guy you're gonna find the in the second round is not as good of a quarterback prospect is Josh Rosen. Would you Tara Taylor? That's a good question. I feel like he's going to end up being the backup somewhere. I, and I think a lot of teams will rightfully try to for his services. I think if you're Baltimore anymore. I was gonna say it's more. He's been in the building they really like them on. Then you also don't have to do much different with your offense with tyrod Taylor and Lamar Jackson, you can run similar stuff. So I think it makes a lot of sense on several different levels who's your number one free agent. We're just not talking about a good. That's a good question..

How to train your dragon the hidden world sword in its opening weekend landing with fifty five and a half million dollars the biggest debut ever for the animated franchisee and the largest debut of the year. So far in Hollywood. I'm David Daniel. News Radio eleven fifty W G O, W savage, Michael Savage. Weeknights at nine on NewsRadio. We fifty. Sorry, folks. I was just Michael Cohen has just claimed he's responsible for Trump running from president. It was his idea back in two thousand eleven and Jim Jordan is beside effect. Like, can we get this our microphones to there? Right. We can ship this for just a few minutes. I listen we've got a little bit of this. I spoke to Mr. Schiff about topics. They're going to be all right that dump out of it. Well, we'll get it. I was I was mesmerized was late coming back to the break. He claimed there's so many contradictions here. He claimed that it was his idea for Trump to run for president two thousand eleven then he quoted he said go look at this website two thousand twelve and you'll see that there's already public opinion positive for Trump running for president. I did that. And and Jim Georgia's you this. We didn't know this your responsible for Trump running at keep something in mind. Cohen said earlier that Trump didn't want to win. He never expected to win running for president was some sort of gigantic marketing campaign gigantic infomercial or something you never expected to win. And then he says that Trump would do anything to win. He's rootless. He'll stop at nothing to win. Now, we're being told that it was his dream to be president as far back as two thousand eleven. Remember Trump came down the escalator Trump Tower in June of two thousand fifteen Cohen just said it was four years earlier that was his idea. Now Cohen has also lied in a big way under all today. During Republican questioning earlier this morning. One member of congress said you really wanted to be chief of staff. Right. You really wanted to be in the administration. And that's why you're here today. Right because you got passed over because you're not the administration. Trump didn't offer you anything in your noses out of joining your here because you're taped off that after all the work you've done and all the morality, you were not giving it administration job and Cohen said, no, sir. No, sir. I didn't want to go to work for the administration. I had no desire to work administration. I wanted more independence in that. Well, shortly after that, Eric Trump tweeted Michael was lobbying. Everyone to be chief of staff. It was the biggest joke in the campaign and around the office that he just perjure himself again. And then Donald Trump junior tweeted nailed it. It really was the biggest joke of the entire transition. The beginning of his bitterness was when he realized that was never going to happen. So Eric Trump Donald Trump junior claiming that Cohen. Was desperate to be chief-of-staff. Desperate to move up. Desperate to be hired by Trump to actually matter in the administration and wasn't. But we don't have to rely on just these two guys. Are you ready for this? If you go consult the sentencing report. Four Cohen from the southern district of New York. Remind you again Cohen said today, he did not seek he did not want and he had no ambition for a job in the White House. But the southern district sentencing report says this quote during and after the campaign Cohen told friends and colleagues, including in seized text messages that he expected to be given a prominent role and title in the administration. Cohen today said that he was blindly loyal to Trump. And that was one of the big mistakes. But on page twenty four of the southern district. Sentencing report, it says this this was not an act of blind loyalty Cohen relished the status of alternate fixer the southern district even says that he lied at his sentencing. He blamed his accountant for reporting income to the IRS when the southern district says that he did not provide his accountant with the information the accountant needed about his income. The guy's lying through his teeth today, folks. And you know, I think it was it was Jim Jordan might've been Mark meadows. But it was Jim Jordan. Who was really jamming? You really wanted. You wanted to be in the administration, and you didn't get it. And that's why we're here today. Right. Mr. Cohen you wanted to step up with the president. You wanted a Plum job? You wanted council or something in the administration and you passed over and you didn't get it. And that's why you're here today. And Cohen said no, I I want that. I specifically didn't want. To be in the Trump administration and yet the southern district New York sentencing report plain as day during and after the campaign Cohen told friends and colleagues this be during the transition. During and after the campaign Cohen told friends and colleagues, including in sees text messages that he expected to be given a prominent role and title in the administration, stop and think about that. I that this guy was telling everybody. That he was a big guy is telling everyone, and he was the president right hand, man. And he was interim moving up, and he was going to have some Gaggenau that Trump junior and Eric Trump for saying he was openly lobbying for chief-of-staff. And he got shut out. He got nothing. And here he is today. Spilling is good. Getting all of that resentment and hatred for Trump out. On.

Let's see there's some signing bonuses. And some extras in the. Deal. So the overall cash in the in on his deal is sixteen point seven five sixteen point seven seven five dollars.

Because you think they could get something back for one of the football. Is there any we don't know the real background of what happened here? It feels like either Brown has to go or rothlisburger has to go, right? When we come back. We will present a case where maybe what the Steelers should do to handle this is to think about moving on from Ben Rothlisberger.
