"Last question is political. It's got nothing to do with your substantive work. Wisconsin Alexis Supreme Court Justice next week. Soros and pritzker just put a $1 million into it. How important is it that justice Kelly went? Everything is on the line here in Wisconsin. Everything we've accomplished since 2010, the walker reforms. We're getting out spent out raised. The progressive candidate has been transparent with the democratic base about what she's going to provide them if she gets the bench. She called the legislative maps absolutely positively rigged forgoing any impartiality in future cases involving redistricting or abortion. They have billionaires in California bankrolling their TV ads. So we need all the help we can get in Wisconsin right now. This is absolutely critical. Not just if you're a Wisconsin citizen, but if they can do this, they can prove this model works. It's one that it's a playbook that they're going to use across the United States and it's going to usher in a wave of progressive governance and lead effectively legislating from the bench that's incredibly destructive and chaotic for common sense, wisconsinites and Americans.

Brandon Straka Walks Us Through His Post J6 Nightmare
"To us about the purgatory of the last two years as we've seen with almost every other case. Concerning January the 6th, this constant threat that if you don't, if you don't surrender, if you don't give in to the plea bargain, they will throw the book at you. You're going to get felonies. You're going to get multiple years of sentences from the judge. Walk us through what happened to you after the initial charges were presented. Sure. Yeah, I guess I'll just say, look, for every person at this point, it's about a thousand people, I believe, that have been charged with January 6th related charges. And I believe that they're going to go after at least a thousand more people probably more than that in the coming years, which is insane. But yeah, for the majority of people, we've all been kind of faced with two choices, either to go to a Washington D.C. court and go before a D.C. judge and a D.C. jury. All of whom, as far as I'm concerned, hate Donald Trump hate anybody who voted for Donald Trump or supported him. And don't have any clarity of thinking whatsoever in their ability to be neutral or unbiased when sitting on a jury trying to decide the guilt or innocence of somebody who supported Trump. So there's that option or you can take a plea deal, which is not a magical answer by any stretch of the imagination, but it does allow you to wrap things up and begin the process of trying to move forward with your life. I made the choice to take a plea deal. I pled guilty to one single class B misdemeanor of disorderly conduct. Now, along with that plea deal and this kind of goes back to the conversation you and I were having a few minutes ago, I signed the government written statement of offense. Which is essentially their version in narrative of what I did, what I said, what I smelled, what I thought, why I thought it, why I did what I did. So that narrative now lives in reality for the time being.

Prince Harry returns to court in tabloid phone hacking case
"Prince Harry has returned to a London court for a second day of hearings to see if the phone hacking lawsuit. He's brought with Elton John and other celebrities can withstand a challenge from the publisher of the daily mail. The case is one of several brought by the Duke of Sussex in his battle with the press and alleges the publisher hired private investigators to illegally bug homes and cars and record phone conversations. Associated newspapers denies the allegations and is seeking to throw out the case arguing that the claims are too old and rely on information they'd turned over in confidentiality from an earlier probe, the lawsuits alleges the company, which publishes the daily mail and the mail on Sunday, commissioned breaking and entry into private property, and engaged in other unlawful acts that invaded the privacy of the famous plaintiffs, which besides the prince, include actresses in his early and Sadie frost and John's husband, David Furnish, Charles De Ledesma, London

How the Capitol Police Had Infiltrators Among the J6 Protesters
"So the new development is that we now have federal prosecutors admitting in court. That Metropolitan Police department undercover officers acted as provocateurs. At the northern steps of the U.S. capitol on January 6th. Now you'll remember you may remember I had January 6th attorney Joseph McBride on. And he talked about this. He talked about the fact that there weren't just FBI instigators. FBI plans that the Proud Boys and the three percenters and the oath keepers. But there were also Metropolitan Police dressed up in sort of maga outfits or back the blue or just American patriotic gear. And they were in the crowd, and they were egging on the crowd. So we had this coming from a January 6th attorney, but what we didn't have is all the video showing it. And what we didn't have was the prosecutors admitting it. Yes, this was true. We did have our guys. They were doing this that video is in fact accurate. Now, there's one of the defendants, his name is William Pope, he's from Topeka, Kansas. And he has asked the judge a fellow in judge Contreras, Rudolph Contreras. U.S. district judge, I need to have the video that shows these undercover Metropolitan Police. Doing this stuff. And the prosecution is like, no, no, judge, you can give him the video, and the judge is like, well, why not? Isn't he entitled to the video? Yeah, but he wants to release the video publicly. So if you give the video over to the defendant, he's welcome to, in fact, in this case, this William pulp fellows representing himself, there's nothing to prohibit him from releasing the video. No one denies the video is authentic, it's video that was taken really by the government itself, but we have the assistant U.S. attorney. This is Kelly Moran. The defendant is not entitled to undesignated these videos to share them with unlimited third parties, his desire to try the case in the media rather than the court of law is illegitimate. No one says he's trying the case in the media. He's just releasing the videos because he thinks the public would like to know that you see undercover cops not only egging the crowd on rah rah rah, but pushing them and driving them in the direction of the capital. It's almost like they want them to go into the capital because they are trying to lead them into a trap.

Dinesh Reflects on His Own Corrupt Court Case
"I'm talking about the potential for a Trump prosecution, the stormy Daniels case all over again. And you know, thinking back to my own case, the prosecution unable to come up with a comparable case when I went to my sentencing, they produced a whole bunch of cases and just lied about them. In other words, left out a whole bunch of significant facts. I mean, real judicial malpractice produced by the city by the southern district of New York under preet bharara, the prosecutor was a woman a different person. I actually forget her name. But in any event, she's very forgettable individual. But they go to the judge and they say, oh, danesh should get two years in federal prison or he should get a year in federal prison because look at all these other cases where these people got these sentences. And what they did was leave out significant facts in all those cases, like a repeat offender or a guy who had this was not a case of giving $20,000 over the limit, but 200,000 or 600,000 over the limit or you had a person who was who was trying to buy a federal judgeship, so in other words, getting a corrupt deal with a politician. All of this was left out and my lawyer Ben raffman found it and showed the judge and you think the judge would at the very least if he wasn't going to hold these guys in contempt of court with at the very least say, guys, you got to stop lying. You can't show me cases and leave significant facts on it. But the judge was perfectly okay with it. It's almost like he was used to it. It's almost like he was in on it. It's almost like he knew that lying is part of what these guys do. And their goal is basically to get this conservative dissident, this anti Obama guy, get him to be treated severely and I judge Berman, I'm not going to do exactly what the prosecution, but I'm going to hit him in my own way, so this is how these, this is how this operation is carried out.

All right, so the website is early vote action dot com early vote action dot com. Tell our 3 million listeners right now. Where are you today and what are you doing tonight? Well, I'm here in Green Bay and Brown county, Wisconsin because everyone should not be talking about the 2024 presidential election. They should be focusing on the Wisconsin state Supreme Court race on April 4th. Now let me give you some background on why this is so important. Right now, the court is currently for conservatives to three liberals. However, one of those conservatives has to retire, meaning that if we are unsuccessful at electing justice Daniel Kelly on April 4th, maintaining our conservative majority, then the court will flip from four to three conservative to four to three liberal. And the liberal opponent of justice Daniel Kelly has already indicated that she will get rid of voter ID in Wisconsin. She will get rid of proof of residency in Wisconsin. They will make unbanned drop boxes constitutional in Wisconsin. Our gun rights and hunting rights will be attacked in school choice will be defunded. This election on April 4th for the Wisconsin Supreme Court is consequential and is not only going to affect the people of Wisconsin, but it's going to affect whether or not Republicans are able to win back The White House in 2024.

Why Simon Campbell Went to War With Local Pennsylvania Authorities
"Those who missed our chat on my newsmax show recently in the last time you were on the show, just give us a little crazy little summary of why you went to war with the local authorities in Pennsylvania and who ended up winning eventually. Yeah, right. Well, the local school board in Pennsylvania a bunch of 9 left wing radical liberals were silencing people at public comments, three citizens before me got silenced. That's why I showed up in Malibu. They weren't allowed to speak. Exactly. They showed up a public comment to criticize the critical race theory program and they were basically told to shut up, sit down and be quiet. And it was all on videotape. So I found out about it. And I'm like, right, well, you're going to get a piece of my mind. And they tried to shut me up as you saw. And so the four of us sued them in federal court for First Amendment violations. And we won an injunctive order against the district saying you're not allowed to enforce this piece of garbage unconstitutional speech policy. And then they ended up selling the case for $300,000. Paid to the lawyers, of course, because the lawyers make the money. And for my trouble as a plaintiff, I got the grand total of $17 91 cents. Now you tell me Sebastian, 1791. Does that ring a bell to you? I love it. I just want to know, how did you engineer that your reward was $70 and 91 cents? Well, here's the thing. When you file a First Amendment lawsuit, you can only get what's called nominal damages because it's not like you're claiming you broke your back or anything like that. And so you have to put a figure in for the court and I said, well, I will update it. It means something. I want the year the Bill of Rights as enacted. I want those suds to send a British citizen a check for 1791 and don't mess with it, but a citizen's First Amendment rights again or I'll get 1791 from you.

Trump lawyer in court after being forced before grand jury
"A lawyer for Donald Trump at no comment after leaving a Washington D.C. federal court, where he was ordered to appear before a grand jury investigating the handling of classified documents. Attorney Evan corcoran's appearance stems from an order from a federal judge who ruled in favor of a Justice Department request that corcoran answer questions before the grand jury. In a previous appearance he had invoked attorney client privilege to decline answering certain questions. But prosecutors can get around that. If they can show the client is using the lawyer in furtherance of a crime. Corcoran had drafted a letter last June, asserting that a diligent search for classified documents had been done and said all records had been provided.

"Yanis said that to have effective regulation, traditional institutions should be regulated and supervised the same way as crypto. This was reported by Bloomberg on January 17th. Japan's financial watchdog made these comments after the collapse of FTX in November. This event shook the industry and made regulatory action much more urgent. He believes that the problem with crypto is not the technology itself, but with loose governance, weak internal controls and a lack of regulation and supervision. He said that regulators in the United States and Europe should apply the same rules to crypto exchanges as they do the banks and brokerages. This is different from some regulators here in the U.S.. The financial stability board is a global organization that regulates the digital asset industry, and they've received recommendations. Yanis also said that countries should strongly require consumer protection measures from crypto exchanges. He also said that crypto brokerages should have strong governance, internal controls auditing, disclosure, and measures to prevent money laundering. He confirmed that the Japanese subsidiary of FTX will allow withdrawals to start again in February. He also said that the agency has been in communication with FTX Japan and that the clients assets have been separated from the subsidiary. The U.S. court overseeing the FTX case approved the sale of FTX Japan and other subsidiaries. 41 parties were interested in buying the Japanese branch of the exchange.

"All right, so here's a story about quadra CX. The founder died under mysterious circumstances. It was kind of a scam at some point. Many of the funds that were locked on quadriga were inaccessible. It's been a protracted bankruptcy proceeding up in Canada and after years of a lot of these funds being mistakenly sent to a wallet that was not controlled by EY, which was administering the bankruptcy after years of silence from these wallets. A few days ago, a hundred Bitcoin moved from them. Suggesting that someone else controls these wallets and they aren't the cold wallets as initially advertised by EY when they made this pronouncement that oopsie, they sent it to these wallets, we don't control. So someone controls these wallets, they're sending Bitcoin. It's going through mixers. This is like $1.6 million. This is not nothing. And at the very least, it's a reminder of the crazy story of quadriga, CX, wills, history, corner, hit it. Before I get going before I get going, shout to Nicolas day, who's been covering this for coin desk for quite some time. Shout out to Nick day. Gori's reporting quadri CX, probably the best out there. The history part of this is what happened to Gerald cotton. Supposedly he died, I believe in 2019 from Crohn's disease in India. He was running the exchange in Canada, there became some questions about the financial solvency of the place. Then everyone was looking into the financials itself and things were just like messed up. There was no controls in place. There was no good accounting, and ten looks like FTX all over again. But this was back in 2019, right? For a lot less money, it was about $200 million went missing thousands of Canadian customers and Gerald Colton just disappeared and supposedly died in India from Crohn's disease, even going so far as having his body exhumed from Indian and being confirmed by Indian officials. But as you said, Zack, the intrigue here is that this Bitcoin address supposedly could only be moved by Gerald cotton himself. So is he alive or is he not alive and someone else has the ability to control these Bitcoin wallets? That is the question here and yes, it's some perfect intrigue going into Christmas and I love this because we need a distraction from everything else that is happening in crypto. We needed this right now. Jen, throw it over to you. Yeah, reading this going through the whole FTX debacle was such an interesting experience to read about all of the parallels. The bankruptcy filing, the $200 million of customer funds that have been frozen. We have Gerald cotton, so I do know someone who worked with Gerald cotton, who said, you know, he didn't seem like a bad guy. This person says they don't think that he would have faked his own death. But I think that we could say the same thing about, I'm not saying that Sam bankman fried is going to fake his own death or anything. But I think we could say the same thing. I think people who worked with him would say he didn't seem like a bad guy. I don't think he would have done this. Like maybe some things went wrong. And so my question when I read the story is is Gerald cotton alive. Who's moving this Bitcoin? It's just the perfect way to go into the holidays. And I did not have this on my bingo card for what we would be speaking about leading up to 2023. And so while it is crazy and I feel for the customers that have still not received their funds back from this, it put a little twinkle in my eye this morning. Wendy, I think we need to ask the guy that hosts unsolved mysteries to come on the show and help us solve the mystery. At this point, I mean, it's a crazy story. I don't really know what I think about it. It's just a really crazy story. And we're talking about like $1 million being moved, which sounds like a lot of money because it is a lot of money, but at the same time, we're also talking about FTX and the $10 billion hole and just kind of how times have changed in crypto and accelerated and when we used to be worrying about like 1 million 1 $1 million hack or something like that, we're now talking about $10 billion that has gone missing. So I guess it's a good story for the holidays, but it just seems so outlandish and outrageous. But again, in crypto, anything is possible. Anything is possible. And I love the on chain analytics portion of this, which is actually keeping this story alive. Most of the times when we have these stories, they would die because it goes through the traditional banking system. People are able to pull out cash and disappear. That is not true in the world of Bitcoin where you can track transaction for longevity of it, right? So this has a hundred Bitcoin, went to that address that was supposedly only controllable by quadriga CX, Gerald cotton himself, and now those bitcoins are being moved into a few different vacation softwares that allows the transaction history, those bitcoins to be broken up. And this is where the case will get a little murky, right? We have to see if those bitcoins continue to move. Are they going to be turned to Fiat? Is there a person on the other side of those wallets? Does that person live in India? Is it Gerald caught himself? We're going to have to keep watching this one, but I love the on chain sleuthing part of this story. Jen, I'll turn to you for next story. Well, before I go to the next story, I just want to say, I hope that Netflix updates that documentary, they put about quadriga CX. That was crazy twists and turns. We have more to the story. So Netflix, if you're watching, there is a sequel here for you. All right, we're going off to regulatory land, coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong says that regulation should be limited to centralized actors in a blog post and Twitter thread. He says decentralized products like DeFi daz and self custodial wallets shouldn't be involved as transparency is built in by default. Keynotes a key difference, though money is transferred through these platforms. They shouldn't be regulated as financial service businesses as the products never take possession of customer funds. This, on the heels of senator Elizabeth Warren's digital asset anti money laundering act, which we spoke about earlier this week or maybe late last week, which would impose surveillance and registration requirements for almost all participants in blockchain networks, including minors and wallet

"About that. A tidbit in the testimony. And I just feel like he needs some PR help. He needs someone to help him in crafting his message. It feels like no one is in his corner and it's just sad now, Wendy, he's honestly communicating to public servants that could get him in a lot of trouble. This thing he would on crypto Twitter. Like that is a regular crypto Twitter response. I mean, you have to switch kind of personality types when you're going into different situations. And I'm sure that he has Pierre. I don't know, maybe he's going to play the insanity card who knows, but it is all looking like a circus. And again, I'm tinfoil crown on here. I kind of feel like regardless if the FTX ended up thriving or failing, this was all orchestrated to push through negative crypto regulation in the United States and on a global scale with the CBDC, that's obviously not confirmed that is just a thought that my tinfoil crown has. There was one thing I want to pick up here I'm going to go super quick. I was going to say there was someone in Congress this morning who said, you know, who referenced this ignorance, the Sam has been citing and then cited all of the education all of the very smart moves he made up until this point and said, you know, I don't think that ignorance is to blame here, but we'll pass it back to you. Yeah, I want to bring up two things before we move on from this subject. And that is the discrepancy between FTX U.S. and the testimonies we've seen from Sam wigman fried and John J rado third. John J ray is saying that, yes, FTX U.S. was actually having problems with solvency in that they there was no difference between FTX and FTX U.S. and then same big one for you saying that it's not the case that there was a difference between the two entities and that FTX U.S. actually could have made all customers whole. In fact, saying that he wishes he had not signed that DocuSign at four 30 a.m. and that he was pressured into doing so. So that's a huge discrepancy and we're going to have to wait to see what happens with that, right? Because it would be actually a great situation and a great outcome for FTX U.S. users. If they're able to get their funds off. But I have a hard time believing anything SPF is saying at this point. I'm going to wrap it up there up to Zach for your last take. I saw Wendy hand. I'll toss it to her. Really quick, I did read that the funds were commingled between FTX U.S. and FTX international. So maybe that's not why they are able to kind of release those funds and they had to file chapter 11 bankruptcy for all, I believe, a 134 entities under FTX. Last thought here, just absolutely stunning how quickly this is all unfolded. John Jay ray mentioned that November 2nd, that story that was published by coin desk was the first time this started to come to light and here we are, less than a month and a half later, SPF in custody house hearing FTX and Alameda in shambles truly spectacular fall from grace of a man who was in some of these same quarters speaking on behalf of the crypto industry, not too many months ago. Crazy times. All right, that's it for the first half of the hash today. We're going to take a break. On the other side of the break, binance withdrawals really ramped up like crazy yesterday. We'll talk about what that means for the potential extension

"Hill hearings are a little bit like crypto Twitter for boomers, right? There's a lot of takes that are being popped off over here. I think there was something about BP dough. I saw that lighten up Twitter. There we go. Creepy crypto dough. I missed that one, but that was definitely lighten up the Twitter commentariat. So there's definitely a lot of grandstanding and hearings like this, but really the main attraction here is John Jay read the third laying out what he knows to be true. Now, interesting to note that bahamian bahamian regulators are out here saying that he's misrepresenting some of the facts and the regulators down The Bahamas are seeking to clear their name as it relates to some of these public statements made by the new CEO of FTX. This is unfolding as we speak. These are pronouncements that are being made from The Bahamas, going to be interesting to see if The Bahamas can come back from this, right? As a crypto hub. They wanted to be a crypto destination. They housed FTX, Alameda, other crypto firms as well. Were brought down there by the lure of friendly regulation. If they can come back and sort of maintain their image as upstanding actors within the regulatory sphere globally, I think that's an open question and we're seeing a bit of that turf war that we saw earlier again play out in the wake of John ray's public comments here on Capitol Hill. So serve a sideline to note, as far as we know, SPF is still in The Bahamas. He's in custody in The Bahamas. He's yet to be extradited. There was a bit of news saying that he would not waive his right to an extradition hearing. So we'll see how that goes. Will. Last thoughts on this one before we change gears. Last thought is I just have to wonder what Caroline Olson and Sandra besco are thinking right now with all this going on. Where are they and what are they thinking after seeing their former boss being snagged by the United States government? When you kick it to you for our next story. They're probably thinking that darn, I shouldn't have gotten involved with this creepy dough currency. Just kidding. But the next story I don't have to laugh every time. We're paying these people. I don't know how they get paid, but we're paying these people with their taxpayer dollars. Anyways, SPF leak testimony reveals the truth about him, according to Forbes. So he basically planned to blame everybody, but himself shows the leaked Congress testimony. According to Forbes, SPF planned to say, I effed up while testifying before lawmakers about the collapse. This is according to a leaked draft of his opening remarks that publication says they were exclusively required the Lake document obtained by Forbes also shows he planned to discuss the following. He claimed that FTX U.S. was still fully solve it and could pay back all customers in full, I could kind of agree with this to an extent because I know they were licensed and regulated in the U.S. and when you're licensed and regulated in the U.S., you got to be up to par. He said the pressure to file chapter 11 started November 8th and mostly came from Ryan Miller, general counsel, FTX U.S. and law firm, Sullivan, and Cromwell. He said, I wish I had not clicked on a button on DocuSign at four 30 a.m., leaving some FTX under destructive leadership, and he said he deeply regrets giving into pressure to sign the forms. And you blame the inclusion on FTX U.S. and chapter 11 bankruptcy on the new CEO John ray. Zach take it away. Yeah, so this testimony, this league testimony was brought up during the hearing itself with lawmakers saying this testimony is quote so disrespectful citing that F bomb that was up there near the top. Now SPF was supposed to be at this hearing sort of showing sort of like a showdown with John Jay ray laying out, I guess both sides of the story here, but that did not come to pass because he was arrested yesterday in The Bahamas, but this is definitely sort of making its way into the conversation as it relates to this house hearing would have been wild to see this one job in person or at least virtually, but no law enforcement acted before that could happen. So now he is in custody while this hearing unfolds without him. Well, I'll talk to you. Yeah, I'm disappointed that we didn't get to see that. That would have been very interesting just in terms of the comedic effect. And Zach, I'm going to go back to the point that you were just making the lawmakers and Congress people and the hearing were not very enthused by ten appoints tirade at the beginning of this little testimony, or dropping an F word, which will not do in coindesk as a family publication, but he seems to think it's appropriate to do that in front of Congress when all of his work, his life's work is on the line. So interesting to see him do that. I don't think a lot of people in Congress have time for his PR campaign to continue, but this is certainly notable. We're going to have to see what happens with him in The Bahamas right now as you're going through all the documentation. I'm curious to see Zach, what you brought up earlier, what does it happen with Bahamas and regulation there? Because of SPF, Jenna Buddha over to you for your take. I need to see an SPF John J ray showdown. It has to happen. I think SPF will just get totally wrecked by John J ray after seeing him speak this morning. I think it is disrespectful. And I think reading through a lot of his statement, it's everything he's been saying in the media on this PR tour, right? He's sorry he effed up, but at the end of the day it wasn't his fault, there was so much going on that he just, you know, couldn't fathom it, but also he references these letters of intent that there are all of these investors waiting to give money to save customers at the end of the day. He references them so much on social media in the media interviews he's doing and now again in this leaked testimony. But we haven't heard anything else. We haven't heard anyone come forth and say, you know, I'm willing to put these funds up. He hasn't gone into any more detail. I'm so curious

"Now, if you visited coindesk dot com this morning, you may have seen live testimony in Capitol Hill from the current CEO of FTX, John J ray of the third, there it is in that little picture in picture box. It's still going on right now. They're hearing from the current CEO and his telling of what is going on with Sam bankman freed's collapsed crypto empire. Now, we'll get to that and more in a bit. Let's hear a clip from John Jay ray the third in response to congressman Frank Lucas from Oklahoma, asking about how the FDX debacle compares to some of the past projects that John ray has worked on. Even in the most failed companies, you have a fair road map of what happened, we're dealing with literally a sort of a paperless bankruptcy in terms of how they created this company. It makes it very difficult to trace and track assets and particularly as I've said in the crypto world. It's really unprecedented in terms of the lack of documentation. And JJ really the third famously presided over enron's bankruptcy and has been through this rodeo before. So a lot of telling detail being shared here in this U.S. House committee hearing lots to go on here. Let's ask it to Jen for her initial thoughts. Yeah, I think that John Jay ray the third has been really brutally honest this morning, and I don't think he slammed on crypto at all. I think he's been very transparent about what he's found in the last four weeks as CEO of FTX and he's been really real and calling it good old fashioned embezzlement. On the other side of the coin, we see government officials really taking a slam at crypto and I think that we could have expected this, a lot of mentions of money laundering and what kind of regulation could have stopped this. And listening to the testimony this morning, listening to the questions from regulators, my initial reaction is we know that a lot of the things that have happened at FTX were illegal. We know that Sam bankman fried has been arrested for the illegal things that have gone on. And so this questioning, you know, what kind of regulation do we need to stop it? I think it may take us in the wrong direction, but it was something that we definitely expected and we've spoken about a lot on the show. Will, I think I saw your hand go up. Yeah, the testimony this morning is definitely of interest, but I want to go back a few hours to what happened last night, which was the news that Sam bacon fried had been arrested in The Bahamas after the southern district of New York had put an extradition against him and they were looking to get him out of Bahamas and into a United States courtrooms. The Bahamas is currently holding him. He was arrested again last night, which caught a lot of people off guard for some reason a lot of people did not think that he was going to be arrested. Himself, even he said on Twitter spaces, same bakery that he was not thinking he is going to be arrested, but as we've seen this morning, the different things posted against him are pretty severe. If there's conspiracy commit wire fraud, there is wire fraud, conspiracy commit wire fraud against lenders, wire fraud against lenders. There's even some very hefty, very hefty allegations against defrauding the United States government and his involvement in giving too much money to different campaign contributions, which were unsealed again this morning by the southern district of New York. So this is a pretty heavy stuff, which I think a lot of people in the crypto world were not expecting to happen. People, I think we're just looking at the last month seeing the PR circuit and saying, oh, well, maybe he's going to get out of this or he's going to get off with just a warning. But I think you are seeing the long arm of the law come down on top of crypto. It might take a while to get there, but it certainly does get there. And it's pretty hefty. When the throat up to you for your take my question is, why all of a sudden do the public servants care about all the money that was donated to them? They didn't care about it before. They didn't question it before. There's a lot of things that I do think that are going to come to light. And I'm not defending salmon any way, shape, or form. He was still a part of this whole circus. But the problematic thing that we're seeing is we're seeing these public servants, which again, you guys, our taxpayer dollars go to fund these cases. These types of investigations. And the type of questions, some of them are good, but at the same time, Sam needs to be held accountable. The people that he was working with should be held accountable, but more importantly, the public servants that did take money. That didn't do further investigations on how to place good practices in the crypto industry. We have somebody like Gary gensler that keeps saying, you know, come register come talk to us. Well, it came out that Gary met with Sam multiple times. And why didn't he catch it? Is job is to catch these bad actors instead he goes around and he talks about finding Kim Kardashian for disclosed ad. And it's just becoming a big circus. It's becoming ridiculous. And I don't think retail has been protected at all. And I think that they're kind of laughing in our faces at this point. So it's very upsetting. And that's my take on it.

Thousands of police spread out across the country to arrest suspects ranging from a one time German royal prince to a former judge. A government spokesman says the so called Reich group planned to violently abolish Germany state law and carry out an armed attack on the parliament building. WTO national security correspondent JJ green says members of the group do not believe German laws apply to them. They don't believe in German democracy. They don't recognize Germany's modern day structure as a legitimate state. Some of them are devoted to the German Empire under monarchy. And some of them still hang on to Nazi ideas and others believe that Germany is still under military occupation. Prosecutors say the group is alleged to have believed in a conglomerate of conspiracy theories with narratives that included QAnon ideology.

A lawsuit against Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman in the killing of Washington journalist Jamal Khashoggi has been dismissed. A federal judge here in D.C. ruled in favor of the Biden administration, which insisted the prince was legally immune in the case. The judge granted the government's motion despite what he called credible allegations of the prince's involvement in the murder. A team of Saudi officials killed Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in 2018. This, after the post columnist criticized Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, U.S. intelligence determined he did have a role in that plot.

"We are getting some progress in the courts on election integrity. The progress is slow. It's a little bit halting. It's two steps forward and one step back. There was an unfortunate ruling in Michigan. A little while ago where the Secretary of State made some very arbitrary rules about Paul objections, Republicans being able to bring in their cameras, bringing their phones and raise objections and this went before the courts in Michigan and the court space we all know the Secretary of State is right. And they didn't really rule in the merits of what the Republicans were saying, but they said in effect that we can't change things right now. It's kind of too late we're right at the edge of the election. So that was a loss for the Republicans in Michigan. However, in Wisconsin, a big win, and the Wisconsin Supreme Court basically saying, no mail and drop boxes. There's no provision for that in the Wisconsin constitution. There's no provision for that in the Wisconsin statutes and laws. This was done in 2020, but kind of we're not doing it again. Huge win. And now I see a more limited but important victory in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania Supreme Court rules undated mail in ballots can't be counted. Now that's slightly understates what the Pennsylvania Supreme Court said because really what we're dealing with here is an improperly filled out ballot. Now ballots can be improperly filled out in all kinds of ways. You can wrongly date a ballot. Let's just say you put the wrong month or the wrong year, it's like, wait, when did you fill out this ballot? Or you don't put a date at all. They can be problems with the address problems with the signature. So ballots, the question, the bigger question you're dealing with here is what do you do with a sort of defective ballot? A ballad that doesn't meet the think of it, the ballots have a very simple conditions that have to be met. And the simple conditions all have an underlying rationale. We're talking about a specific election and so a date is really important. The data is also important because there are certain dates in which you're allowed to cast your ballot. And so you have to be within that legitimate time. Number two, identification. You have to be you. So you have to provide a name and address, sign the ballot. And so when these things are not done, the question becomes what happens to that ballot. And so the Pennsylvania and the Republican National Committee intervening in Pennsylvania sued, and basically said, listen, you can't just count these ballots no matter how they're filled out.

"u.s. court" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"And I'm Susanna Palmer in the Bloomberg newsroom New York City's school system has been temporarily blocked from imposing a mandate forcing teachers and other staff to get vaccinated against COVID-19 More from Bloomberg's Denise Pellegrini That mandate was set to go into effect on Monday at midnight but late yesterday a judge from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the second circuit referred the case to a three judge panel on an expedited basis instead It's unclear if that hearing will take place before Monday Mayor de Blasio is so far refused to push back the vaccination deadline Denise Pellegrini Bloomberg radio Meanwhile with a Monday deadline looming thousands of healthcare workers in New York are risking their jobs by not getting a coronavirus vaccine And while the vast majority of staff members at New York City's largest private hospital network New York Presbyterian had been vaccinated as of this week more than 200 employees faced termination because they had not These are just a fraction of the workers at risk of losing their jobs or being put on unpaid leave after Monday China gave a hero's welcome to Huawei technologies executive Meng wanzhou as she touched down

powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries I'm Susanna Palmer This is Bloomberg This is Bloomberg opinion on Bloomberg radio bringing you news comments and insights from Bloomberg opinions worldwide team of editors and columnists I'm Janet Wu Coming up on the show how Facebook's whitelist reveals two big problems Plus strengthening school boards against groups that threaten to undermine public education But first in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly president Joe Biden promised the world that this time of relentless war would make way for an era of relentless diplomacy According to opinion columnist Eli Lake Biden's global vision is a mirage as effective diplomacy requires at least some threat of force And he joined us now to explain So Eli why is this pivot from this relentless war to diplomacy impossible Well first of all it's not really a pivot If you remember when President Biden was justifying his full withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan he said part of the reason was to focus U.S. Military efforts to wear the threat of terrorism is really coming from There are no plans at the moment Exit from Iraq or Syria or for that matter to end other kind of intelligence and U.S. special operations things in the region in the what we used to be called the war on terrorism Or in terms of trying to challenge China So the idea that ending the Afghanistan war was ending the relentless relentless war is a bit misleading but there is a problem which is that when the rest of the world looks at the decision to remove a very small American footprint military footprint in Afghanistan And then the predicted and predictable results of the Taliban then taking over the country once that sort of stop gap was removed there are serious questions about America's will And in that respect if adversaries and allies do not think to the United States not defend what used to be considered its vital security interests which is to prevent Afghanistan from ever becoming a safe haven again but people who plan 9 11 then it makes it weakens this idea of diplomacy diplomacy and military force or at least the perception that nation will use military force especially superpower They go hand in hand and the fact that Biden was sort of drawing this distinction as if we're choosing diplomacy over military force in my view was deeply misleading as I said at the mirage Let's dig a little deeper into the difficulty that it's not just managing relations with governments which is how we see diplomacy but managing this factor of terrorism And to people this is not getting safer It's not getting better That's correct I mean listen all you need to know is that the new minister of interior for Afghanistan is somebody who has a $5 million bounty FBI reward for his capture Is a well-known terrorist The Taliban never severed ties with Al-Qaeda or what's known as the Haqqani network which is a sort of Pakistan based organization that's affiliated with its military intelligence service All of this is this is the Taliban They have not really tried to hide this from the world They've the makeup of their interim government shows us the case So while it might be true that even more extremist jihadists like ISIS K or ISIS course on our battle at times with the Taliban it doesn't mean that the Taliban are not directly involved with terrorism And sea terrorism as a means for accomplishing their own strategic goals So in that respect combine that with the fact that the Taliban defeated a great superpower like the United States to become a kind of rallying point that we've already seen for other jihadists all over the world You characterize U.S. departure from Afghanistan not as a withdrawal but surrender Well it is a surrender because the United States always had a policy in Afghanistan that if the Taliban wanted to run for office they wanted to participate in these elections they could The fact that they didn't and they refused to do that And then the U.S. changed their policy First under the Trump administration to begin negotiations with Taliban And then under the Biden administration to basically leave without any kind of condition but there was no effort to even negotiate a new government that included the Taliban which was sort of the big leap of the Trump deal with the Taliban And they just left knowing that there was going to be this problem I mean there you go In the end you write that both diplomacy and might or at least threat of my need to be combined How was the best way Well people have written treatises on this I mean it's a long it's a complicated answer But I do think that given the fact that by in 2021 there was a very small footprint in Afghanistan When you have a manageable solution like I believe that we did in Afghanistan it's better to sort of stick out a less ideal solution than court catastrophic one And in general I would say that it does not help the United States refocus attention on a threat like China to leave the way that it did and just sort of signal that it was unwilling to fight for what I still think should remain American strategic goals a stable Afghanistan that is free of terror is far better than what we have now Thanks Eli That's Eli Lake an opinion colonist covering national security and.

"u.s. court" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"And she's in charge of a certain circuit courts the way it is that every single one of the. Us supreme court justices the oversee a certain circuit court for emergency appeals. They could decide to take them right opinions on them. It's not a final decision but they all over see that area. They can block it though so. Us supreme court justice amy coney barrett refuses to block indiana university's vaccine vaccine mandate for students. She acted alone and gave no explanation. She's from indiana. She's also a practicing catholic. Why the inaction what's a couple of reasons number one. This is a tough fight. Don't count on the court to pick tough fights where the political will of a nation is not in alignment alexander. Hamilton famously predicted this. He said the courts will almost never challenge public opinion. And we know this throughout history. I mean the courts made a terrible decision that dread scott decision seven two two seven democrats to republicans as dissenting because public opinion was that blacks were not humans at the time an awful and disgusting an evil dosage. It's time progressed. And public opinion changed the courts reverse their decision. Actually no just kidding. We believe that all humans are created equal if they just would have listened to the tenants of the united states constitution and declaration of independence. They wouldn't have had to do some sort of movement in the dread scott decision to come to that conclusion but instead the court's conformed public opinion. How about griswold. V connecticut griswold. V connecticut was around birth. Control was the last state to fall when it came to the pill public opinion. Very much in favor of allowing the pill. The courts allowed it to happen. How about roe versus wade and the doe case that accompanied it public opinion said abortion should be safe legal and rare and the courts. Let it happen. How planned parenthood v casey. Mikey can check this. I think it was one thousand. Ninety two was planned. Parenthood v casey famous justice anthony. Kennedy's interpretive clause life is what you want it to be. I'm not gonna tell you that. There's one way to live on the other ninety two nineteen. I was right in nineteen ninety-two the courts conform to the people now. This is something that we as conservatives. Don't talk about enough. We think that the courts are going to make sober and fair and unbiased decisions regardless of the clamoring the chattering class hamilton. Never thought never thought this isn't the case he wrote about this in the federalist papers and you wrote about this in his private journals and alexander. Hamilton is actually a ghost rider for a lot of george washington speeches in a second term of his presidency. Now the idea of judicial review came in thanks to marbury versus madison. Which really kind of enshrine this idea that. The supreme court is a co equal branch of government. The supreme court has the ability to have a check and balance against tyrants and dust spots or unconstitutional measures when the legislature as we've covered extensively in a previous episode of our podcast. Joe biden has just basically said. I don't care if the supreme court says i am going to do. What i believe is right let roberts sent his army. Let marshall sent his armies. Andrew jackson said an booster versed beaver. V georgia a lot of people debate whether it or not but the essence definitely fits andrew jackson's persona. So i guess we're left to this question. What do we do. Here's a big lesson for conservatives. We have to cut it with the messianic complex of politics. What does that mean. It means we as conservatives like to outsource our hope to other people. Oh donald trump's gonna solve everything. He's in a comment on air force. One and the country will be made great again that if we get the right people in the supreme court that's gonna turn the nation around. We know that's not true. We know that outsourcing our hope to a group of people. If you have your hope in people you will be let down. Here's a newsflash. You get a leader. Like lincoln and churchill. Once every hundred years. We were lucky to have. In one generation both reagan fatter churchill. Eisenhower would be in addition to that. Most of our leaders are gutless wonders. Compared to lincoln churchill fatter in reagan. So just going. All in on one person is doomed to fail to look at the roman empire. You know what happens when you have a great emperor. Marcus aurelius great. Emperors usually have really bad kids communists and the whole empire starts to fall. Apart could work for a moment. But there's no sustainability to it now. I'm not saying that. Amy conybeare editor brett. Caviar neal gorsuch roman emperors but a lot of power and we haven't invested as the conservative movement too much in individuals now. I'm glad the supreme court has a majority. I'm glad that we're going to at least have some sort of a check and balance on joe biden's activism but we're gonna let down more and more. Now maybe things will change. But amy conybeare it and brent cavanaugh neal gorsuch to a lesser extent and definitely. Not clarence thomas. Let me make sure. I clarify this. Clarence thomas is an american hero. You wanna talk about someone who never cares about. The other side is to say about him. Clarence thomas clarence thomas. Ten out of ten alito nine. Ten gorsuch eight out of ten cabin on amy coney barrett t b d. We don't know we thought brett cabinet. I was gonna come on the scene because the left slandered him so much. Well he's been okay on certain decisions but not great and any coney. Barrett has been lackluster at best now. She had an opportunity to intervene and say experimental. Medicine cannot be forced upon the students of the great state of indiana..
"u.s. court" Discussed on The Leader
"From the evening standard in london. I'm david malls land and this is the leader. The lawyer representing the duke of york's accuser has warned against anyone ignoring the us court as he claims. The royals legal team has stonewalled appeals. For information. virginia. Joffrey is suing the queen's son for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager and has said it was passed the time for him to be held to account david boies who's representing miss joffrey says his client ultimately wants vindication from her civil suit for damages. Andrew has vehemently denied the allegations in the past. And a spokesman for the jew said there was no comment when asked to respond to miss joffrey. Legal action with me. Now is is our correspondent. Kristen kirk just. There's making some pretty. Bold claims about prince andrew's legal team. That's right the lawyer for virginia joffrey said that they tried every avenue they could to settle the case against prince andrew out of court to to reach some sort of agreement and to have her accusations dealt with without a full trial in front of the judge and jury but they say it just wasn't possible that accused him of essentially stonewalling the investigation and their inquiries into the claims and they said they've been left with absolutely no choice but to to go down the lawsuit route to what is the law that they're bringing them. What is being accused of. These are very very serious. Claims we met against prince andrew. I largely claims that will already be well known to people who've been following the case Prince andrew is accused of having sex with a seventeen year old girl At the homes of his former friend. Jeffrey epstein In new york on a private island in the us virgin islands and also at the home of maxwell in london in belgravia. it said the the the girl Miss joffrey was was forced to have sex with the prince Under the directions of maxwell epstein and that she had no choice in the matter and she feared either death or feddie series injury. If she didn't comply with those requests jeffrey epstein of course we know died in prison after being charged with sex trafficking offenses and glee. Max is currently awaiting trial and allegations. She helped him find girls to abuse. She denies all the charges against that's a separate case. Prince andrew is vehemently denying. Ms jeffries claims that's right. He's made no comment on the civil plane just been lodged But he's previously issued Repeated denials in this case. He says that is absolutely not true. What's being said about him. And he in an interview into nineteen on news. Ninety suggested the ad no memory of even meeting miss joffrey in past the dinner. Joffrey is seeking damages here. Have we any idea how much she's looking for. No her lawyer has been asked that question previously substantial damages. they are seeking. It wasn't willing to put a figure on it and said that he's he's comfortable leaving that to a jury if we get to that stage. I think perhaps what's more significant. Certainly on the on the princess parties is the reputational damage that this is doing to him and will potentially do in the future because these are allegations that i i suspect he hoped it had gone away at had perhaps been dealt with and the whole though You know scandal. The people know about Could perhaps be put into the past but now is a former lawsuits and before a court in new york and something that he simply has to come from to deal with and so we could be looking at potentially these allegations being raked over in public court hearings For many months and perhaps years into the future is prince andrew himself likely to have to appear in a us cool to talk about these lhasa. A question on a lot of people's lips in i don't think can be definitively answer to this stage he certainly could be That certainly on the coms and when you are taking taken to court in a lawsuit of this this type if you're intending to find it then then it would pass the expected that you would make a deposition to the court at the very least all go and give evidence. I think it certainly something that The prince is going to want to avoid. Because as i mentioned the reputational damage. That would be well that would be a moment with the the eyes of the world on him if he was to go and give evidence to court about these these really serious allegations and so. I think it's fair to expect. His legal team will explore avenues for for that kind of showdown in public court..
