"two parties" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Feeling standoff. At which point you think that becomes a relevant theme for the markets. Is that risk underappreciated? So regretfully, there is very little common ground between the two parties that are in power today. In fact, I'm not sure there's any common ground between the two parties that are empowered today. And as such, unfortunately, it will probably not be until we have the volatility in the market that goes with an impending default. That we will actually see cooler heads prevail, a compromise reached to kick the can again to the typical budget process where we'll see, I think the real contours of what the magnitude of government spending cuts will be and or the nature of tax increases will be. So I think the debt ceiling will be a non event until it is an event. That event will shake the confidence of the House and Senate. They'll find a common ground to kick the can again. They're very good at that. It's a national sport. And then we will address this in a haphazard mediocre way later this year in our routine budget process. But there will be a compromise. I mean, God willing. And I do think it'll be the market volatility that will drive that compromise to kick the can. And the reason we have to do this is America owes about $30 trillion today. And if we defaulted on our debt for even a minute, the increase in interest rates that we would pay for for decades to come would cost our economy dearly. I mean, if you think about it, if our current $30 trillion of debt had it all be refinanced at today's prevailing interest rates, we would spend about 6 and two thirds percent of total GDP. Just servicing our debt. Let me start working January and by roughly the second half of January. Having had no money to take home, you would have worked long enough to pay the interest bills for the year on the U.S. debt. You mentioned that one of the ways Washington is trying to carve out a way of this was tax hikes. In fact, president Joe Biden said yesterday that he was considering a tax hike in incomes above $4 million, right? So do you think that's the right policy? That's the right way to go. So the Democrats are very enamored with the political talking points of raising taxes on the rich. And that works for a very period of time, but there's just not enough money there to pay the actual bills. And so unless we are willing to bring spending under control, we're looking at tax increases for all Americans. In Illinois, for example, which has a chronic deficit spending problem. Unfunded pension plans and the hundreds of billions of dollars, they don't raise, they haven't been able to raise income taxes yet. But they've raised almost every other tax you could ever imagine. From gas to property. And those taxes actually aren't, they're not paid by the wealthy as much as they are by the people who are in the lower class and middle class. They're incredibly regressive. So if you look at a state like Illinois, which prides itself on being so progressive, and then you look at where the tax burden actually falls as they continue to try to put their balance, their balance and budget, it falls on the very people that that government claims to be entrusted protecting. And so what I'm worried about is that the talking points are cheap, the political victory that comes with it is cheap. But the hard work comes from having to have the real tough decisions about where to cut spending. And of equal importance, how do you take the tax base and broaden it and not just find taxes that disproportionately affect people in America that are living paycheck to paycheck trying to make their bills happen? You mentioned at the beginning of our conversation that your vision for an inflation doesn't differ that much from the market. What exactly are you positioning with the fund right now? Where are the biggest opportunities for a hedge fund like Citadel right now? So we are constantly positioning our capital against where we have a differentiated view as compared to the market. So for example, if we think of companies going to announce strong earnings per quarter that others don't anticipate and perhaps guide for stronger future results, we'll be long that stock. So why did you have a differentiation for you now? Right now, I would say it's fair to say that we are somewhat licking our wounds from the incredibly strong economic data in January. Really. So we did not anticipate that we would see such strong economic data in January. And that's forces to reevaluate our interest rate and inflation positions here in the United States, or for that matter around the world. And part of what we do, I think, very well as a firm is we accept reality, which is, wow, we didn't see this payroll number coming. We didn't see the inflationary print that went with this. We've got to go back to the drawing board and rethink our framework and re decide how to deploy our capital. And we'll do that for a couple of weeks. And we're back at it. But very successful investors are very quick to acknowledge when they've got it wrong. And they don't let I think of it as thesis creep come into play. When you're wrong, you're out, you reevaluate, you decide what to do next. And that can sometimes be doing the exact opposite of what you were doing just 8 weeks ago. And in particular, with rate markets around the world is valuable as they are, we are constantly changing our position from long or short rates in various countries around the world. Every couple of weeks. You've mentioned Illinois policies. And I can help but think of the contrast with Florida, which is where we are right now, right? And then I wanted to shift a little bit of the gears here and talk a little bit about Florida. So we're going to Palm Beach and I'm sure our audience is going to remember that at the height of the pandemic can turn the four seasons law be the first is the ballroom. I'm sorry, into this gigantic trading floor. The heart of Citadel empire, just 6 miles down the road. And then apparently he liked for it so much that he decided to bring the entire company here. Ken, how's your life in Florida? Well, actually, let's go back to that story for a moment. Did I tell it wrong? No, it's close enough. It's close enough. We. Realized that we needed the ability to maintain markets in the U.S. equity market at the start of the pandemic, where the largest trade of equities in the United States we account for roughly one in four shares at change hands every day. So we have a we have a job that transcends just being here for Citadel. We view ourselves as we want to be here for the tens of millions
Is Decentralized Storage Like Mining? Bill Schreckenstein Explains
"Let's talk about the incentives that are what you just dropped. I'm thinking of it this way. There's this neutral network or building network at this point, and there's participants who want to store data. And then there's participants who are willing to give up capacity to store that data and you're basically have to have some sort of monetary transfer between the two parties and a decentralized way. And that's what filecoin, protocol labs, all you guys are building and enabling this to occur. Walk me through that a little bit from one side or the other you can choose. If I'm someone who wants to use or bring capacity to a network, what does it look like for me? That's a great question. So there are different actual views into this, right? So the first one would be, I'm just Joe user. I have some data I want to store it. I have the option to go out and buy filecoin and invoke my own deals as a user, and as long as you have SPs and willing to make the deals, you can make them. It's one to one. So as a participant, I have that ability. Or there are solutions with a network. I've already mentioned estuary, which is one I can apply for an API key. I get a terabyte of free storage. I can start uploading data. There's also what three dot storage, NFT storage. So there are other portals that you can use that leverage what we call our incentive programs. The next step would be as an end user if you want to participate in an incentive program. It's actually beneficial for you. But it's also beneficial for the SPs, and that's twofold. So if you come to the network and say, hey, I've got, let's say I've got this research data that I need to store. And you can fill plus application. And if it's approved, you have a wallet that's loaded with fill that allows you to make the deals with the SPs and store all this data. With a verified deal like that, your data is seen as more valuable. So the rewards for the SPs that store that data get a ten X reward versus just a straight one to one deal. There are SPs in our ecosystem that believe it or not, don't store a lot of data, they're just creating what we call blank or CC sectors where you're going through the ceiling process. We call it ceiling. The cryptographic hashing, but they'll go through the ceiling process and they're just storing blank sectors and accumulating fill at a one to one ratio. Whereas if it's a verified deal, it's ten to one.

How James Biden Invoked Joe Biden's Name to Secure $140M Deal
"Here's an interesting headline in the Biden's brother was hired to broker secret $140 million Saudi deal when Joe was veep. Docs revealed. Now I want to commend the New York Post because they do great reporting led by the inimitable Miranda divine on Hunter Biden, the Biden cramp crime family, all the various rackets from Ukraine, to China, and now Saudi Arabia. But this latest headline is an article, but it refers to the reporting of the daily mail. This is the daily mail in London. They apparently broke the story and what is the story? Well, first of all, it's interesting that the story comes out in a dispute between two parties that seem unrelated. One is a construction company that is called hill, a hill international. And this company is having a fight with its lawyers, and its lawyers are called Langford and Reed. Now, what is the fight about? Basically Langford and Reed says the following. They say that the hill international company made a big deal in Saudi Arabia. I did a major construction project. We're owed a 140 $1 million. But the Saudis evidently for whatever reason refused to pay there was some problem or some argument. And so there was a negotiation going on between the lawyers, which is Langford and Reid and the Saudis about getting that money. And the lawyers thought that they had worked out that the Saudis would not pay the full amount they'd pay a $100 million, but suddenly heal a national win silent and go, no, no, no, let's just drop the whole matter. They kind of forgot about it. They acted as if to say they never got any money. And as it turns out, and this is really what Langford and Reed is alleging, hill international thought of or different scheme. We know how to get this money out of the Saudis. We'll hire James Biden and leveraging his relationship and of course his access to Joe Biden, who's the vice president, will get the Saudis to offer us a deal under the table, and then we won't have to split the money with our lawyers.

Steven Crowder's Term Sheet Argument With Lauren Chen
"Impression, I had a few dealings with Stephen, mostly with his father. I think he does take things rather personally. He may be a good businessman. I think he is a good businessman, but he's not a business man. First, he is an artist first. I think, as such, he does let emotions drive him quite often, which is fine. It's a character trait. But there's also an issue here where this is a term street, not a contract. And I've signed multiple contracts in my life. The first contract for the first term sheet is not the thing you ever sign, unless you're an idiot, or less they're offering you the sky, it is the beginning of a negotiation process. Here there was no negotiating process. There was you're a bastard. I'm not going to sign this, and then recording phone conversations with boring that he later uses. So there's something a little bit unrealistic about the approach to a piece of written paper perhaps. The term sheet argument. So this is something that Jeremy boring really and Ben Shapiro was well really tried to emphasize in their videos. It's just a term sheet, it's not a contract as if the term sheet does not represent what ideally they would have in the contract. If Steven Crowder or some other influencer perhaps wasn't savvy in the business, do you really think that when it came time to sign the contract, the daily wire would be like, hang on, bro, don't sign this. This is actually a terrible deal. In the job. That's nobody was positing that that would be the scenario. Every life, the two parties meet and Kratos says, no, no, no. I want 60 million. No, no, no, no. We're going to offer you 55. It's a put. What they're offering is what they think they can get away with before somebody says, I want an extra month of holiday, right?

Rep. Chip Roy: The Importance of the Rules Committee
"Now You guys wanted three seats So if you needed then am I right Am I getting as my math right here So these three seats could then dictate and make sure that the demands you guys had were stuck to because if you're on the rules committee they're going to need those three conservative Republicans to make sure any changes to the rules go through If that's wrong stop me and laugh at me I want to take it personally No you just articulated that very well I mean just for the average listener out there just understand But you have standing committees right judiciary energy and commerce appropriations and they go do their thing They pass legislation after going through all the machinations Mark it up vote on it And then it goes to the rules committee for us to establish how and when it will get to the floor The rules committee that makes the decisions about the structure how the votes will work How many votes there will be How many amendments And we get it to the floor in order to execute For too long the two party system has been tightening that down so that it is less open and it's more tightly controlled Now look I'll be honest you and I both want conservative policy advanced If we have really good conservative policy and there's tighter rules on it that allow us to get that through you and I may not object as much But at the end of the day we need to broadly open it up And we want to try to be consistent about opening up but not so consistent in the sense that oh we're going to unilaterally disarm while Democrats every time they're empowered just jam this crap through We believe that on the appropriation side in particular we should open up the ability of members to offer amendments to cut spending and then use the rules committee with the votes you just described 13 members non Republicans for Democrats of the 9 if you've got three solid conservative members on there we could find a way to be able to hold the line if they tried to end run us on the waving of rules waving the 72 hours to read the bill waving a single subject or even try to jam something through that were particularly bad or unconstitutional or broken any agreements on spending That's what we're trying to do with respect to the rules committee

Roger Stone: 'Trump Is Your Real, First Outsider President'
"To Trump, although we had two parties, that was all kabuki theater. We really had one party. It was the establishment party. Neo cons, those who go out and look for war for profit and gain, dominated both parties. There was a globalist worldview. We could pretend an election time we were different, but at the end of the day our policies were exactly the same. Witness the fact that all these Republicans in the House and the Senate are perfectly willing to ship billions a $100 billion to Ukraine to fight over their borders, but they aren't willing to spend a couple million to seal our border from which we have an immigration crime and drug epidemic. That's a uni party doing that. Trump is the real first outsider president. He's the only president who's not a part of the club. The only thing that comes close to him is Reagan. Right. And everything was cut and dried for 2016. It was going to be Jeb Bush versus Hillary Clinton. It didn't matter who won boys because we all get rich. They stole together in their Haitian charity for the earthquake. What happened to that 65 million? Boom, it was gone. Nobody knows where it went. Except for the bushes and the clintons. They know where it went. So Trump exposes this hole insider establishment, ruling elite, and that's why they are so hysterical about him in particular.

Caller: Everyone Should Explain the Difference Between Two Parties
"On my mind? Is that I would like to challenge every American out there everyone that believes in a constitutional republic that now visiting their families and friends over the holidays. That you explain to them what the difference between the two parties are. What's the differences between the Republican Party and their ideals in a constitutional republic and representation for all people and versus what the Democrat party has become where we have elected now a communist to represent the state of Georgia. I talked to a lot of people before Thanksgiving and they said that they didn't think that their vote really mattered because both parties were corrupt. I have to agree with them on that. However, when I went to cast my ballot yesterday, was Herschel the best candidate no, but I knew in my heart of hearts that Herschel would represent this state and would represent the ideals that I believed in versus someone that was quite vocally a communist and now we have to live with that here in Georgia for the next 6 years. And a guy who beat his wife, I mean, he ran over his wife or tried to run over his wife. I mean, it's not like this is some sort of a pure spirit here. But the problem is star and again, it you hate to go back to all of this, but if Herschel, when they decided, when Trump decided Herschel's going to be our guy, what Herschel was obligated to do was to stand and have a big press conference and say, you know what, folks? You're about to jump into my background. And here's what here's what I did. Here's but here's here is who I am now. And this is why I'm a different man. But star, they didn't do that. And so then the voters were treated to every week a drip drip drip.

People Are Waking up and Holding Their Leaders Accountable
"People waking up enough time has passed that people are beginning to think for themselves and beginning to realize like, wait a minute. I have been taken for granted by the Democratic Party. Now listen, there are many, many, many white evangelicals who are realizing the same thing about the Republican Party. They've been taking me for granted. They couldn't care less about what I care about. They don't care about the life issue. They don't care about. They just take me for granted. They don't, where are you going to go? You're going to vote for me. So we have to hold our leaders accountable, folks. And it means oftentimes it means finding someone else to vote for thinking outside of the box because we've been all really stuck in this two party system and I just find it funny that, you know, generally somebody says to me, well, you know, should I vote Republican? I will say, of course, if you have to choose between the two. But it would be really nice if the Republicans were on fire about the issues that you and I are talking about right now.
"two parties" Discussed on KOMO
"Of strategies 360. What is going on down there in Salem? Oregon is going through, I think what a lot of the countries trying to feel and that is do the two parties represent all the interest in this state. And so not only do we have a viable candidate in our Republican nominee, we have Tina kotek, who's the Democrat nominee and the third candidate is Betsy Johnson, who's a non affiliated candidate. She's not assigned to any party. And she left the Democrat party to run right up the middle. And I think she too has a very good shot at winning this race. So she's kind of playing the role of spoiler as it were. Yeah, I think some people would describe it as that or some would say savior. I think that her message has been both parties aren't serving the people, which not only is happening in happening across the country. And so therefore, she's taking that message and people seem to be listening to her what she's having to say and attacking both the Democrat and the Republican for not being responsive to the needs of Oregon. So what are some of the big issues down there in Oregon that have come up during this campaign that have really pushed this left leaning independent if I were to call her that to the forefront? Good question. I think every state we went through the pandemic and that had a lot of economic and social implications for organ in Portland got a lot of national news for the rioting that was happening in Portland. We have a very large homeless problem in Portland and so a lot of portlanders, which is normally the base for Democrats, the tri county area. There are a lot of upset people. Again, that's something that Betsy Johnson is Tapping into is that this discrepant with the government and the fact that we have a very large homeless problem. And we had a lot of violence that has left scars on the city of Portland that are still there. So let's kind of go through each of these candidates. We'll start with Tina kotex. She's the Democrat in the race. And she was the former Speaker of the House. Is that right? Yeah, she was the longest serving speaker in Oregon history ten years, effective. And both representing what would be the traditional Democrat base labor, for example, environmental groups, women's issues as well. But she also worked hard with the business community and passing the largest tax increase to fund our schools and Oregon. So she's seen as a very effective legislator who knows the state really well in the budgets really well. So and she's making a case that Democrats continue to provide your leadership in the state and is really looking to move forward with their own agenda. And then the Republican Christine drazen if I'm pronouncing that correctly, who's she? Christine Dre's and was also a legislator was in leadership in the state House. Seen as a Republican that can work across the aisle. I think that's been another challenge for the Republicans in this state. She's trying to drive more of a moderate message as well. And typically in the state of Oregon, Democrats usually come out ahead because it's a head to head between Democrat and Republican and there's more Democrats than Republicans, but also the non affiliated voters tend to break towards the Democrats, particularly on social issues, which, again, tend to drive these elections as much as anything. And Betsy Johnson, the independent, that leans left, who maybe, as you say, taking some of the votes from Tina kotek. That season really interesting candidates. She has been in the state legislature for nearly 20 years, her family have long ties to Oregon. She was a Republican at one point in her life, switched a number of years ago and has been a state senator as a Democrat representing the northwest part of Oregon along the coast and down on the Columbia river scapula area. And has always been seen as a very tenacious legislator who fought for constituent work. And she's garnered a lot of support from both what would be seen as traditional Republican bases, the business community has been pouring money into campaign as have others who see her as one that can drive a message of change in the state because she said driving, as I said earlier, a message about the two parties not meeting the needs of

For Conservatives, the Democrats Aren't the Only Problematic Party
"I focus normally on the left on the Democrats, they are certainly the mechanism, the instrument of causing the weakening the downfall, perhaps in the end the destruction of the United States, but part of the problem that we're dealing with is that we don't have an alternative party, a Republican Party, and we should be really clear because sometimes out of frustration or just discussed and perhaps despair, people imagine, well, maybe we should create a new party, a third party, and but I don't think that those alternatives are viable. America, by and large as function, really from almost the very beginning as a two party system. Originally, of course, that was just one party that Washington's party. The federalists. But ever since you had the federalists and then Jefferson's party, we've kind of had a two party system. Sometimes a new party shows up, but then one of the older parties falls by the wayside. And so the Republican Party is kind of all we've got is what I'm saying. But the Republican Party just seems to be feeble unimaginative on energetic, not equal to the creativity and ruthlessness of the other side. And so a lot of our job, in my view, is to focus on our own party. And build it up,

Democrats Are Losing Their Edge With Hispanic Voters
"Axios reports shifts in the demographics of the two party supporters, taking place before our eyes are arguably the biggest political story of our time. The big picture, Republicans are becoming more working class or as we call it the muscular class. And more multiracial. Democrats are becoming more elite and a little more white. Democrats hope for retaining power, rests on non white voters remaining a reliable part of the party's coalition. Democrats theory of the case collapses. If Republicans make even incremental gains with those voters. Quote, even small inroads with Hispanic voters could tip a number of Democrat held swing seats to the Republican Party. It certainly can hear in Arizona, for able to do that against the snake Mark Kelly. Democrats are statistically tied with Republicans among Hispanics on the generic congressional ballot. Democrats again held a 40 7 point lead with Hispanics during the 2018 midterms. Why is this happening? Democrat strategists say the party's biggest vulnerability is assuming the priorities of progressive activists are the same of those of working class voters. Quote, progressive activists led to push the cut, a police budgets, communities of color have borne the brunt of higher crime. Yeah, no kidding. They can't afford armed guards. They can't afford bulletproof SUVs. They're not flying private. They don't live in gated communities. They actually have to live through the misery created by JB pritzker, or Gavin Newsom,

Carl Cameron: Republicans Have Become Purveyors of Misinformation
"So here she is with Carl Cameron yesterday on MSNBC or maybe it was the day before yesterday. Talking about disinformation and the hatred that comes from, oh, I don't know, Americans like you and me. I mean, obviously, a mass shooter is responsible for the violence and the heinous acts that the mass shooter committed. It is also true that the ideology left in the mass shooters screed mirrors the ideology, championed by Tucker Carlson. What happens at Fox News when something like this happens? I can't even imagine. It's partly why I ended up getting out of there. It really is kind of horrible to think that journalists with national and international capacity are putting together this type of nonsense. I think the president did a great job. I wish he had done a lot of this a lot sooner and we need a lot more from the left and the middle. And we got to watch out because the Republicans have become the purveyors of misinformation. And when our two party system is broken like that, democracy is seriously in trouble. The president acknowledged that it's time to actually start doing things and maybe taking some names and putting people in jail.

John Solomon: The Culture of Corruption on the Left
"There's a party in America out of the two parties that we have that has a real problem with what was the phrase a culture of corruption. Corruption. Cultural prompts in the latest everybody by surprise that wasn't paying attention is the former lieutenant governor of New York. So walk us through why it seems as if one party has a real problem with bent politicians. Yeah, listen, if you remember, this is how Nancy Pelosi swept into power during the 2006 election. Her first time, she's elected speaker. She and Harry Reid came up with a came up with the term culture of corruption Republicans have been in power for so long. They have a culture of corruption, and they rode that to an election victory. Well, Nancy Pelosi may be swept out of power this election in part because of this culture of corruption problem now on the democratic side. You've got the lieutenant governor. You got the former House speaker and Illinois with some connections, by the way, to the current governor there. You've got the Hunter Biden investigation, which could be one of the largest inflow influence pending scandals we've seen in a very long time. You've got state lawmakers in Kentucky and Tennessee in Nevada and Wisconsin, all with recent criminal cases. I think about a dozen corruption cases across the entire Democratic Party in the last few months and democratic middle of the road voters already have their frustrations with inflation and gas prices and rising crime, open border instability in the world, throw in corrupt crooked politicians. It's enough to create a maelstrom of a election storm in favor of Republicans heading into the November

"The very sort of truth. That you will not hear anywhere else on this the first day that the federal government officially marks Juneteenth this is a decidedly Republican holiday. And this is a day to celebrate the accomplishments of the Republican Party and freeing the slaves from their wicked Democrat masters. I realized before we got into that long monologue about the history that led to Juneteenth about just what went into it, in their own words, Republicans versus Democrats on the issue of slavery and oh, by the way, by the way, by the way, This myth of the Republican Democrats switch in the 19 sixties and 19 seventies, where all of those old racist Democrats became Republicans totally false. In fact, a couple of years ago Thoroughly debunked this. I think we've got to bring this back in May of 2018. I had finally had enough. I wrote Probably 2 3000 words on this. I tried to make it as short as possible to explain as extensively as I could, that the ideology of the two parties never actually switched at all. And that the Racists never became Republicans. In fact, Democrats made a calculated move to embrace civil rights knowing full well, they'd never win the South again. As most black voters would have gravitated toward the Republican Party. If they kept their policies of segregation intact. And frankly, all the old segregationist they never switch parties they died. And this new breed of Southern Democrats. The Jimmy Carter is the and then the Al Gore's and the Bill Clinton's They were far more liberal. They were adopting the ideas of of cultural Marxism that they were picking up in the universities. A lot of them were going to universities in the north. They weren't the good old boy segregationists. They were a new breed of Democrat. The Republicans were always standing for the exact same thing. In fact, it's one of the most pernicious myths. That all of the southern Racists became Republicans. It's a myth. But I realized that I forgot to give.

"Maybe go to hometown loc dot com and use the promo code radio all right so friday after the program i went and got an antibody tests done here locally for covid. Nineteen i did look. We don't have the t cell immunity tests available here yet in central iowa. This was the only thing i could find. Available was just a standard antibody test. And i did this for two reasons number one when i was speaking in south dakota about a month a little more than a month ago today we once we got up there. It was weird like the started actually going down. Mount rushmore. I just lost temporarily temporarily lost a sense of smell and had this feeling like there was like a weight on my chest. Struggling debrief And so. I wondered because i had been struggling with the The sinus infections. I get every now and then the few days prior and now i actually don't believe that that was covert originally. I actually think they were sinus. Infections it just weakened my immune system enough that that's somebody else then gave me cove it but it went away in about thirty. Six hours just went away like completely just totally went away. All the symptoms did. And i was gonna actually get tested a couple of weeks ago then my wife got it and it gave her full-fledged monja that she had to battle for like a week and so we wanted you want to get you know a couple of weeks past you or anyone around you showing symptoms before you go get tested for antibodies. So friday i went and got an antibody test sure enough. I can confirm. I have robust natural immunity from covid nineteen and according to some recent studies. mild symptoms. those. Antibodies are some of the strongest. That are out there including superior to what you get from the vaccines. Should they actually vaccine for you. So gentlemen thoughts on that news. I disagree. I think i think your your sinus infection allergies. That was cova. Because that's how it presented for for me and that's who you got it from from you think i got it for me yet because i also got my antibodies tested last week and they were positive as well so i would just like to say steve. I hope you feel really really bad about your worst of the week a couple of weeks ago. Because you kinda through. Bob bob vander platts and i under the bus so i think we need a a little mayor copa there. My friend actually was feeling much better. When i went up to south dakota and then suddenly i got hit with those symptoms but if you want credit for infecting me i'll just will then unity indirectly. Yes todd what do you. So should i feel like this. Just like a sort of damocles hovering over me now or should i feel like actually i'm strongest of the bunch which one not even get it. Maybe i maybe made an airborne virus and that can lead to a lot of randomness. Maybe that is why. I will say though that i would encourage everyone in this audience and i mean everyone because there are some. There's a couple of things. I've seen about the dangers of getting of incidents related to getting this vaccine. When you already have had the virus in have antibodies. I would urge all of you and in fact i think said this. Late last year as they were gearing up the the the vaccine effort. I said we needed to be doing what right now. Tending tested for animal antibodies. We needed a massive antibody. Study of the country number one if you know if we need to get this out to the d. vulnerable demographics as soon as possible number one. We need to know who's already had it number one. But then number. Two given the the incidents we're seeing associated with the virus and i'm sorry with the vaccine and some of the reports i've seen of people who are already immune naturally then going getting the vaccine on top of it. I every one of you in this audience if you can do it if it's available in your area and if the if you've got a chance to do the community do that i would have done that but it's not available yet in our community. I checked if you've got a chance to go get an antibody test. I would highly urge you to do that. Particularly given the amount of you that are e mailing me right now about forced vaccination at your jobs right so i all of you in within the sound of my voice. If you've not done so yet you should go get an antibody test okay and with that. Here's errands rundown of what happened while we were away..

And how was it done at scale. That's a great question. that's a question. i think. I certainly ask myself all the time. Chris and i'm sure you've probably due to how do you. How do you push a movement. How'd you how'd you get this thing going. And you know a great example of how to do it on mass when dr policy second two presidential campaigns in an overweight and twelve because you know what dr paul davies. He didn't go out there and saying. Hey i'm a libertarian. You guys got to you guys. Go to abide by these. Libertarian rules His rules were more rules for humanity. You know don't steal don't kill don't hurt other people. And they were simple was a golden rule of course which he was booed for in south carolina. But you know he's a great he would it but he's a great messenger of liberty and freedom because he doesn't try to be someone he's not when he talks about things oser things from the heart. That's not that's not a prepared speech. Remember i'll tell. I'll tell ron paul story. He'll be doesn't get mad at me. But we were flying up to to pennsylvania give speech. It was in a small private plane just after he retired. And it's the first time. I really saw human action as to how he does speech and it was fascinating and i would love to get to this level but i but i haven't but i had these stacks of articles everywhere. He just tons and tons and tons of articles that he had printed out and he's reading them all and he's making notes in on a sheet long notes long notes on the sheet. Wow i mean. Does he have enough time to do this. And he writes all these notes pages and pages of notes from all these articles and then he pulls out an old used envelope and he turns it over and he looks through his notes and he just scribbles a few things on the back of the envelope. So that's that's a great messenger and he's been that and he's been in inspiration for us but you know we have a lot of criticisms of the word libertarian. Anyway because i mean for me in the rotarians simply means you don't want people to to do take your stuff is to bother you to hassi. What shirts you go to what you might want to do in i. I certainly don't identify necessarily even as a small l libertarian. but certainly not as large l. libertarian. Because you know basically these these struggles in these fights just mirror. The other parties are all jockeying for power in that. I think chris is a disadvantage as well. Because while you're just trying to do your thing and not jockeying for power. Other people are jockeying for power over. You and i read a recent article. I forget where but just the other day talking about why the left succeeds where the right and whatever that means.

It was not chosen by government People in the market Choose just like you choose the sneakers you're going to wear and for thousands and thousands of years people have chosen golden silver because of the superior qualities that it has And that it still has Is only afterwards at government comes in monopolizes it for itself but the market choose whatever it wants. Gold and silver of cashews anything Today with our digital economy you can have golden silver and exchange ownership rights digitally. So you don't have to carry around sacks of gold and silver coins and government As far as regulating it has nothing whatsoever to do with regulating. Money government's job is to make sure that contracts are upheld if you spend an ounce of silver on a t shirt or Or whatever If you try to pass it off as plastic wrapped in a silver that's fraud. That's when government comes in and punish punishes you for fraud and for breaking contract so that is the proper role of government and money and as you can see it is the exact opposite of what we have today.

"two parties" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Friday. Erin called in just before we broke up the bottom of the hour, and he's been patiently standing by. So let me take his question before I move on on your own Kay away. NewsRadio what's on your mind? No, Aaron. Aaron, are you there? Oh, yeah. Mike, you maybe listen to the commercials. I got you. Okay, Well, we're on the way out. We're on the air now. So go right ahead. What's your come into question. I just want to say that from listening to your commentary, basically, I mean this country's been around over 20 years. And the Democrats and Republicans have have had monopoly of power in this country for that low and listen to you. It seems like it's loves his country exist. There's no way to break that triangle. Hold of that that monopoly power in this country. I happens in my lifetime. I don't know if it's gonna happen in your lifetime. But I hope it happens in my life. What do you think? Well, let me let me start with the definition of a monopoly in the sense of any economy. Ah, company has a monopoly. When they have complete control of an economic segment. Alright, alright, duopoly is when two companies have complete control of an economic segment. And they collude to serve their own purposes at the expense of the public. Unholy Grappelli is when several companies Mm. Share control of the market and also conspired to advance their interests at the expense of the public. The OPEC cartel, for example, is an example of a of a a non league happily, all right, so the Democrat and Republican Party can't possibly be a monopoly because their rivals they both want different things. Little guys. All right, So I think what you're saying is two parties dominate Yes, public policy, but they dominate public policy with completely different agendas, and it wasn't always the Republicans and the Democrats. It was the federalists and the anti federalists. There's a party called the Wigs that came along there was attempt by Ross Perot with his Reform party. But when all is said and done the structure of our government Is inclined to have two individual parties who differ. Mm hmm. Exchange power. Sometimes one party's in power. Sometimes another party is in power when a third party comes along, like the Republican Party, which didn't exist before 18 56. When the Republican Party came along as a third party. It lost the first election that Iran in but then the other major party faded away the wigs and it reverted to a two party system, with the Democrats and Republicans dominating now. Up until the last. I don't know 20 years or so. The Republicans and Democrats used to be able to compromise when Ronald Reagan was president. Remember, the Democrats had control of the House of Representatives for his entire eight years Reagan had control of the Senate or the Republicans did for six of his eight years then the Democrats won the Senate in his last two years. But even at the beginning, tip O'Neill was the speaker of the House. And and he and Reagan actually liked each other, although they were clear rivals, but they were able to work out compromises. What's happened? In the last 20 years is is that the parties aren't compromising anymore because the differences between the two parties are are so great and irreconcilable as as they are now give me an example of what would have been an obvious compromise early in the Trump administration. Uh, you know what? Doc is right? Yes. Okay. Deferred action for childhood arrivals. Dhaka is a program that allowed Children who were brought into this country by their parents illegally. It gave them legal status. But it was kind of a vague legal status because they weren't citizen, but they were regarded as being here legally. Now. Barack Obama wasn't able to get that passed through Congress, so he did it by executive order. And it stood. Well. When Donald Trump became president, he was willing and Mitch McConnell in the Senate was willing to compromise with the Democrats and go ahead and legislate Dhaka for the benefit of those kids, most of whom aren't kids anymore, But at one time they were But it was gonna be a compromise. The trade off was Trump would agree to sign legislation, and McConnell would agree that it would pass the Republican Senate to legalize these kids in exchange. For the Democrats agreeing To allocate $5 billion for Trump to build his border wall. Alright, Trump wanted one thing they wanted the other thing. They both oppose what the other guy wanted to the other side wanted, And that was the compromise. It was a fair compromise. And by the way, $5 billion for the border wall. Do you know how much money we spent already on covert and everything associated with it going to be in the trees? Yeah, it'll be about $5 Trillion when this next bill is passed. 5 $trillion trillion is 1000 billion, so $5 trillion is $5000 billion. Trump wanted $5 billion compared to $5000 billion the finishes border wall and in exchange, Republicans would go ahead and cut if I Doctor. But the Democrats flatly refused, especially Nancy Pelosi in the House simply because they didn't want Trump to be able to say he delivered on that campaign promise. It's a classic example of a failure to compromise based on obstinacy on and that's where we are today for the duration of the Trump presidency report. Democrats wouldn't give an inch on anything. No, nothing it is And I have one more thing before I go. What you thought about this past lesson wasn't any shenanigans. What do you mean? What do you honestly think about this past election with Trump invited? What? You think what happened in the states? Yeah, I've talked about that at length and I've written a couple of columns about it. Hmm, About go to complete colorado dot com. Online and you can get all of my columns for the last couple of years, if you like, and you can see one on it..
"two parties" Discussed on KTRH
"You right now. Houston's morning News continues with Jimmy Barrett 10 share a friar. Well, we've had our fair share of third parties in this country. Generally what they're both successful at He's taking votes away from one of the other two parties. Um, so one would guess that that would be the case here. Just stash the Bush family about how your Ross Perot in his third party how that may have impacted their world. So if President Trump would begin a third political party What do you suck away enough Republican voters to that political party that they would assure the Republicans would not win. Not that that's a reason not to have one joins to talk about it. But political historian Terry Madonna, I guess let's start with little history lesson here. What was the last the last third party if you will? That actually won an election. Has there ever been one? Uh, well, if you go back to the wigs back in the early 19th century, but not in modern history. I mean, Ross Perot. Ah! You know, formed the Reform party, and then he ran as an independent. So we've had a number of candidates to run as independents. If you get my drift and Typically third parties. Are. I won't say a distraction. I mean, they usually have an issue that matters to voters, or there's something that happened in the political climate. That you know they didn't win the nomination or they believed the candidates. They were not treated fairly. But but overall, uh when we talk about the Patriot Party, and that's a big debate now about whether Former president Trump goes ahead with it. I think that's likely to be More decisive and hurting the Republicans and previous third parties were in hurting. You know where they threw their support base from? Well, it wasn't a party that elected Donald Trump. It was the people. So what happens when when you have all these people who voted for Donald Trump and a lot of them first time voters, a lot of them cross over Democrats. These were people who voted for Donald Trump. What does that say about a two party system? It will. We will, either one actually survive. Well, we've survived him in the past. The fact of the matter is that your ear onto a big and important point. Donald J. Trump 75 million. Votes in the presidential election, the second highest number for any candidate. The fact of the matter is that he's likely to draw support from Million's if you will, millions. Of course, supporters of his that's I mean, really, really evident. And I think that would dramatically hurt the Republicans. They can't afford to lose, you know, millions and millions of votes, particularly in certain key states. Uh and and we see what we don't know, of course, is whether he's going to go ahead and do it or not. I mean, it's a big effort to form a third party. You have to qualify in each state to be on the ballot now. Given this support base that he has. I think that won't be all that difficult, But it is a huge undertaking to run as a you know, toe create a third party. Keep it viable to make sure that in fact what? Make sure that If you're running you can you have the support base? And the resource is to run a name. Well, you don't really have to find a nationwide campaign. Do you need 270 electoral votes and you can get them from a handful of states. I think it would really hurt the Republicans. And it could even hurt him down Ballot meaning for us, you know, U s senate and house. You know what members Terry? That being the case, don't you think there'd be some temptation that we're already seeing that with some mainstream Republicans to make sure this person it does get impeached so he can't run again. Under any party man. Yeah, You're right well, but Republicans air certainly look in order to convict him. President and and they're scheduled to start the trial in the Senate. I think it's January 9. The fact of the matter is That They have to convicting first, according to most constitutional experts that takes two thirds vote in the Senate. They just don't have 17 Republicans who were going across the aisle and vote to convict. There's another aspect to it and By majority vote, not two thirds by majority vote. The United States. Senate can ban Uh, on individual. In this case, it would be Trump from holding an office of honor, trust or profit under the Constitution, Honor, trust or profit. There are some who think They don't have to convict him in order to move to the second aspect, which is the ban him from holding office. And that's going to be a big constitutional battle itself. Many Constitutional experts think that they have to convict them before they can move to that second provision, the majority vote to ban him bar him from holding an office of Honor trust or profit. It has a long way to go yet, and I think Republicans in the main just want to put this behind him. You know what I mean? They just want to put this behind him, and we know that President Biden does. He's not enthusiastic about this. He hasn't opposed it outright, but he has suggested on a number of occasions that it won't be the best thing to do for his agenda. Translation. A Cabinet officers need to be confirmed. And, of course, the $1.9 trillion stimulus package, which includes a huge chunk of money to increase the number of doses and you know all about that. And you know that's been it's been a complete train wreck. Fight away. Yes, sir, we listen, we gotta run. But thank you so much for your time is always that his political historian Terry Madonna, here on NewsRadio, 7 40.

"I always felt that regardless of whatever your political beliefs were, and whatever part of you supported there wasn't 100% of what you could agree to. I just didn't ever believe that. I always felt that that maybe it was time for a non partisan politician. And after watching these last four years of job, I that'll never happen again, and that that it just never happened again. It's just There's just too many things that are working against you. Because of the two party system, you'll never gain support. There's just so much hatred and so much. You know, uh, it just it becomes dysfunctional. You know, when you watch what Trump did when he took over as president, The biggest mistake that he made was alienated the press in the very first press conference. That was crazy. Yeah. Why would you do that? And I just thought it was gonna all be downhill from there, Nawas. You know, I mean, and you know, historians will go back. And you know, Bill determined as to how much success is administration had etcetera, etcetera, But as we go forward, I pray That That we can find a way to support Our president. Regardless of whether or not you were Support or not support the president and we knew what we do need to find a way to resolve our hate tradition has been too much hatred these last four years awful and I'm sick. I'm sick of it This way. There's a lot I couldn't the last two years. I couldn't comfortably read the paper. It just was too much hate. That's not who we are. It isn't It really isn't And I hope it gets better. I do as we go forward, and that's what I'm talking about. Calming. Yeah, You're absolutely right. So well, I guess to kind of bring it back to the Giants. What was instincts that giants are were in on this and you know, it looks like Gabe Kapler. Mike is Is gonna be the first. Well, I guess I was gonna say the first Giants manager to kind of get into the culture, but I think Dusty did. They didn't dusty kind of my boat. She didn't really both, she says I'll put you do is just when Trump win Championships, That's how he'd take it. But Gabe was sending out actual tweets. Last night about he actually sent a tweet about the Georgia Senate race, which was interesting. And so so we have a manager now who's going to be A little different. You know that both she and I think you saw some of that over the summer. I mean under the fans weren't at the games, but you were at the park and the Giants had a videotape message that would play before the games. And we're now was involved right now has been involved in a lot of this stuff. So, so it's issue. I just wanted your thought on Gabe Kapler kind of being, you know, kind of out there. Put himself out there. Um, well again, I could only compare to what I would have done and again. I get back to what I said earlier in the show is that you know, I never felt comfortable standing on a platform wearing a uniform making political or religious commentary. I just didn't I just felt and I've been asked, you know who do you support who you vote for? And I never felt that Hi. Would say who I voted for what party that I supported. Um or what religion? I am because you know you have AH, organization that It's services people from all religions from all political perspective, and I owe it to the Giants to be is neutral as I possibly could be This conversation John Miller and I had a long time ago. And Johnson will be asked a question. He said. What political party that did launch them is going to what political party did. Did Vin Scully belong to what political party that Jack? But I want you and I didn't know. And the point being that we owe it to our organization, too. Our owner ownership group. Be neutral because if you come out and you say something in supportive of a party or an issue And it offends half of your constituents or guess what? You've just done your ownership and you're in your organization a disservice, So that's how I feel about that strongly. I would have handled things differently. But having said that in regards to Gabe Don't you feel completely at peace with this? And he feels strongly about this. And this is not something that that he just woke up one day and say that, you know, I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna support this. I'm going to say this. He's a deep thinker. This is how he was raised. He was raised with discussion at his dinner table on a nightly basis with his mother and father questioned and asked hard questions. And have these conversations for other kids, and this is who he is. I mean, he's a great guy, he says. Open. It's a book, man. He will give you his opinion. You may not agree with it, but he would give us opinion and he will live that life. And, uh, so I mean, Heywood. He's chosen a different path. And I would if I was the manager. Um, but you know exactly where we stand. Steve Kerr. I love Steve Kerr. You know exactly how he stands on issues. And you know if Popovich, another guy, you know exactly where he stands. Have I ever seen this before with coaches and managers now?.
