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

All right, we're talking with Patty Katter today, mill spouse, a wounded warrior advocate, and host of the Wake Up with Patty Katter podcast. Patty, always great to have a fellow podcaster on the show. Take us back, tell us a little bit about your background, where you're coming from. Hey Joe, thank you so much for having me. So originally, I was born in Flint, Michigan. A lot of people know about Flint because of their water crisis they had years ago. But rest assured, I didn't grow up in Flint. I was from a little town in mid -Michigan, and I met my husband, Ken, when he was just getting out of the Marine Corps. He was kind of, it was kind of fun because he was this muscular Marine, you know, and he ended up going to be a police officer. And we ended up getting married and having kids and had a beautiful home on 30 acres. And then 9 -11 happened, and he had the calling to go back into the military again. It was his choice. I definitely wanted to support him in any way possible because we had the type of relationship where we were very supportive of each other's dreams and aspirations. So sold we our home, and my husband joined the Army. I know some listeners might think, why did you go from the Marines to the Army? And for transparency's sake, his age. He was older than most people who would be going into the Army. He had, you know, been a police officer for about a decade after his service in the Marine Corps. And so he ended up joining the Army because he could go active duty and he wanted to go active versus reserves. So he went in fully aware that he would more than likely be deployed to combat. We already had two of our nephews who were in the Army and deployed to Iraq at that point. And so we knew it was definitely on the table. I felt like his training was good. He would be fine over there. We just kind of, you know, whoever is listening, if you're not a God believer, that's fine. Call it divine intervention, whatnot. We believed that God would protect him in one way or another or whatever would happen would be in God's control, not ours. So long story short, we were living on Fort Bragg after we sold our home. And we lived there for about a year and he decided to, we actually together, decided to buy a home off of Fort Bragg. Shortly after his call was to Iraq. So I guess it was about a year. There was a tiny part when he first joined that he was in Hurricane Katrina cleanup. I think he was gone maybe a month or so. I can't quite remember that honestly. So I'll pause here to see if you have any questions. Cause I know that was just a lot to digest. Yeah, no questions. Although, I did want to say there's a lot of Marines that go into the Army and Air Force and other services the second time around. Especially the Army and Air Force, cause they're a lot bigger. There's just more opportunity there. Especially if you like done your main stint as a young active duty Marine, you start running, depending on what your MOS is, it's a very up or out organization. And that's really common. There's a lot of people that were in services other and the other services love hiring them, love getting them on board too. You don't have to go back to boot camp or basic training. And usually they bring that Marine Corps attitude with them, which the other services most of the time love. So it's pretty common story. I know a bunch of Marines that went to other services afterwards. So he's probably in good company. Yeah, definitely. And he was definitely a good asset to the 82nd Recon. So he had all that training and he was pretty high speed and I didn't even understand how high speed he was until probably the last few years, because he never bragged about it. He still never brags about it. Recon, they run a tight ship and the Army was a little bit different of a transition, honestly, for him versus being in the Marines, it was really structured. And the Army, it was pretty structured, but not quite as regimented, I think, as the Marines. And that's just me interpreting. And so if you Army guys out there are upset about that, sorry. And of course, what a transition for you also, because you met him, first time you met him, he was on his way out of the Marine Corps. So you never really experienced being in the Marine Corps with him. And then now you're both are several years older. You're not some young 18, 19 year old new spouse going into the service with her husband. So what was that like for you, your transition into the Army? Yeah, for me, at first it was an adventure. I was excited about the move. I've always been one who enjoyed adventure and I was pretty independent anyways, in my thinking and in my career that I had, and I had done some journalism since I was in 10th grade. So I had my own things going on. And then having kids, I kept busy. So it wasn't a huge adjustment at the beginning, especially for him being a police officer. There were a lot of times that he would work third shift, he would come home in the mornings and then go to court during the day. So he was already sort of gone a lot. So when the training was going on in the Army, that part was not a big deal to me. Hurricane Katrina, that was just different, I guess, because it wasn't like he was out on a hunting trip, you know, it was like he was gone a little bit longer. And then gearing up towards Iraq, I really didn't think a lot into it either. Because honestly, I didn't watch the news a lot. I was busy with my kids. When we moved to Rayford, North Carolina, outside of Fort Bragg, my parents actually had bought a house there and we ended up living right next door to my parents. So I was busy with them and the kids would be back and forth with them. So that part was good and easy. Awesome. Yeah, the deployment was weird because I'll never forget the day he was supposed to deploy. First of all, you know, the hurry up and wait thing, that's a real thing. So we're waiting hours and we're thinking, you know, he's going to be taking off soon. What year was this? Do you remember? That was in 2006. So that's a good question. Yeah, August 2006. Okay. Things were fairly well oiled at that point, you know, like the cycles and everything like back in 03 and then going into 04, we were turning things on, turning things off I've heard so many horror stories about units were supposed to be leaving and then weeks later, they were still there, still waiting to leave, you know, and then eventually they left. Yeah. And, um, yeah, honestly, I kind of thought that was going to happen with him because the first night they were like, Oh, sorry, just joking. No. Um, so he ended up deploying the next day. So he was able to come home that first night and then it was the next day he left. So my dad took him. Um, it was easier for him to take my husband, I think to war because, you know, it was a little bit stressful that morning. I remember it was a little tense at home. The kids, um, were small. So at that point there was a six year old, a nine year old and a 12, nine and a 12 year old. Yeah. So six, nine and 12, um, the 12 year old, she understood it. The nine year old understood it, but not as clearly as the 12 year old. And then the six year old, she did not understand it really. And they were all really close with Ken. Um, he was always really great with the kids. Um, very, very active participant in their lives. And so it was difficult on them. Um, the first, the, when he actually really left that, that first day, one of the neighborhood kids down the road said, Oh man, your dad's going to war. He's going to die cause soldiers get killed in war. It never crossed my kid's mind until that very first day of a 15 month deployment. So that was, that was a tough one for the kids.
A highlight from 116: Part 1: Eric McBride and the December 2015 San Bernardino Terrorist Attack
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playerettes, dudettes, everybody in between, welcome back. This is the follow -on episode to last week with Rick Prado on the 22nd anniversary of 9 -11. We had a theme going here, we wanted to follow through on this next theme, and we'll tell you about that here in just a second, but first of all, welcome. As always, I'm here. I'm Morgan. I'm here literally with my partner in crime, and we're going to do what we did last time. I know some of you guys like small town police water, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to do that when we're talking about something as serious as when we talked about 9 -11. And then this month we're talking with Eric McBride. He retired as the chief of police in San Bernardino City. If you guys remember, Alex Collins we had on was a deputy with San Bernardino County. His partner was killed, Jamie McBride. He was wounded by a piece of shit. We don't even want to mention his name. But we're getting into now the December 2015 terrorist attack at the city of San Bernardino. Fourteen people killed, I think twenty -seven wounded, and it just didn't seem right to follow on. You know, we wanted to have a couple serious discussions, so that's kind of what it was. So before we get started though, just a couple quick things. Head on over to Apple, Spotify, hit those five stars. Let us know what you thought of last week's episode. Let us know what you think of this week's episode. And don't worry folks, next week we'll get back into small town police water. Also head on over to our website, gameofcrimespodcast .com, our book from our prior guest, Rick Prado. You'll see that up there, Black Ops, The Life of a CIA Shadow Warrior. Great reading. You just got to get it. We've got everything you need there. Follow us on social media at Game of Crimes on Twitter, at Game of Crimes podcast on Facebook and the Instagram. But follow us on Patreon too, patreon .com slash gameofcrimes. We just recorded some great episodes. You can't make this shit up. We've got 9 -1 -1, Case of the Month. One rule we made is Murph never gets to pick a movie again. He has to submit it for review before we review it. I promise to do better in the future. Well, because you're on the hook for next month. All right. But guys, we have a lot of good stuff over there. Everything about, you know, we get into funny stuff, we get into serious stuff. Our Case of the Month has been recommended by you, the listeners out there. So head on over there, patreon .com slash gameofcrimes. Now this is a show about crime. We normally are fun and jovial because this is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously and that's how we're going to do it. This is not about us having fun and joking at the expense of a serious incident like this. So our next guest, Aaron McBride, like we said, retired as the chief of police, worked his way up from patrol officer, but started off as a Marine, formerly on active duty. He's got some good stories there, but he comes to us through another long list of people, a family of service, the McBrides out in California. He does. You know, our good buddy out in San Diego, Mel Sosa, made an introduction for us, got us to Eric. But the McBride family is well known in the law enforcement circles out there as brother Jamie, his niece Tony, and then Jamie's other daughter are all police officers out there that have experienced violence that, you know what, most cops in the United States don't have to experience. I'm not sure what's going on with the McBride family here, but you know what, they don't shy away from it and they don't run away. They address the issues as they come to them, and they're protecting their communities. Eric here was just the fact that, I mean, he's a trendsetter. You're going to hear him talk about his high school career, getting out of high school early so he could join the Marine Corps early. And his whole life is service to his community and his fellow man. And you know, in my book, there's no greater calling that you're willing to dedicate your life to work for the public. A public servant, I think, is a term of a hero. And that's certainly who we have on here today. And I'll tell you, again, we've got to thank our buddies out there, Southern California Gang Conference, Mel Sosa, all of those people. They're brothers to us. They get us great gifts, great gifts, great guests, which are gifts for things like this. And I'll tell you, you've really got to sit down and listen to this because one of the things that's going to come out of this is stuff that has not really been talked about in the media before, and you'll hear him talk about a call that was received. He's been briefing this to law enforcement. On the day of, he was the, quote, deputy incident commander, but he was the incident commander for all intents and purposes. And so he's not the one at the tip of the spear out there, but this guy has the overview of everything going on. You're going to hear things that went well. You're going to hear about things that didn't go so well. But we will never get to hearing any of this, Murph, unless I ask you, are you ready to play the biggest, baddest? And as we see in this episode, too, the most dangerous game of all, the game of crime. Absolutely. So everybody get in, sit down, shut up, hold on. You're getting ready to hear a story about an incident that I wasn't even aware of, a terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California. So Eric, tell us what's going on, brother.
A highlight from Episode 59 with Bill Goj on Life as a Dyslexic PhD candidate
"Hello there, and welcome to the Dear Dyslexic podcast series brought to you by Rethink Dyslexia, the podcast where we're breaking barriers and doing things differently. I'm Shaye Wiesel, your host, and I'm so glad you can join us. I'm a fellow neurodivergent, and I'm coming from the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, where I live and work, and I would like to acknowledge and pay my respects to all the tribes across our beautiful country and to all First Nations people listening today. Our podcast was born in 2017 out of a need to give a voice to the stories and perspectives of adults with dyslexia, and our voice has grown stronger year after year. We're now a globally listened to podcast with guests from all around the world. Join us for insightful conversations about living with dyslexia and other neurodivergences across all walks of life. Our special focus is on adult education, employment, social and emotional wellbeing, and entrepreneurship. We're excited to be bringing you this episode and invite you to like and follow us, or even better, why not leave us a review on your favorite podcast platform? So let's get started. Today, I am speaking to Bill, who is a PhD colleague of mine. And when I say colleague, we met through our PhD support group that we run through the foundation. And Bill is a peer, I should say, rather than a colleague. And I'd like to welcome him onto the show today where we'll be talking about everything to do with research and being dyslexic and trying to do a PhD. So welcome to the show, Bill. Thanks. Good to be here. Thanks for asking me. Thanks for coming along, especially because we've just spent the last half an hour chatting instead of doing our podcast. So, yeah, dyslexics get distracted. Yeah, we do very much, which I think is one of the good things about having our PhD group, because we get to talk about trying to do our PhDs, but also all the all the different facets of life that come with studying and being dyslexic. And you are studying a very interesting topic, one that blows my mind, because I can't do numbers at all. So how did you end up doing your PhD? What led you on this crazy journey of academia? Oh, wow. How do you sum it up? For those listening, I'm a mature aged student, but I'm like 50, over 50. In the summer. Yeah, thanks. And so I had I had decades of life in between. And school was horrible. And I have very few good memories of it. So, but I always loved learning. And I felt I was good at it. And I don't know, as I got older, I did little things through TAFE, because I wanted to do human resources. So I did the TAFE Diploma and I started doing the Advanced Diploma. And I topped the year. And this was like, late 20s. So suddenly, I was sort of in a situation where I wanted something, I applied to get into it. And it's all sort of like surprising how I sort of got into it. Because half of me is thinking, yeah, like, I'm gonna be able to do this. But I did. And yeah, I totally topped the year. suddenly And which opened a door that I didn't really believe was there for me in the past. And then I sort of thought, I can do this. And it wasn't until recently, I suppose, in my recent life, that I got into a situation where I could choose what I wanted to do. So in kind of an odd kind of a way, it's like going back in time. And I was fascinated by, I do a PhD in marine biology. So I was fascinated by animals and, you know, the marine life and stuff like that. And suddenly, when I went to university, I was looking at applying, it quickly became a reality that I could almost or pretty well apply for any degree I wanted. you And, know, from someone who like failed, you know, year 12 and dropped out, dropped out because they were failing it and failed grade two and stuff like this and hated school. This was like, one of those epiphanies of, oh my God, I can do my dreamers. So I turned into a kid again and picked marine biology and at every, I didn't really think I could do a PhD in it. I didn't even know what a PhD was, to be honest, even though my dad's a doctor, I didn't know. So as I went through it, I figured, oh my God, I could do this and I'm really good at it. And then I got into the honours and then the dyslexia thing started hitting a bit. And then I wasn't sure that I could do a PhD, but everyone else thought I could. And so I was like, that's good enough for me. Let's give it a go. And here I am. I've got lots of questions to ask you, but going back in time, you said school was horrible for you. So we're of an elk where diagnosis just did not exist. So were you diagnosed as an adult as well when you were doing university? Yeah, so my dad is a retired doctor, psychiatrist. So there's a bit of understanding in terms of neuro differences. And, you know, my mum was just like, my child is smarter than failing grade two, except by grade two. So I forgot the question, Shay. This is me. This is a very dyslexic me thing of like getting totally sidetracked. I'm so sorry. No, now what was the question? I think the question was around diagnosis. Were you diagnosed like I was because we're older and there wasn't such a thing. I don't think I'll just see a diagnosis back on the room. So I'm so random. I was so random. Anyway, so, so, so, yeah, look, so, so there's something wrong with what the school thought I was like because they just thought I was dumb and stupid and lazy and that type of thing. And I what could do, because I could say or tell them all of my parents, all about animals and my mum would be in the car going, oh, what's this plus this? You know, and there'd be big numbers and stuff and none of the adults could do it. And I just pop and go and say it. And they'd be like, this there's a disconnect there. So so my mum sort of could pick this. There's something different about me. So so they got me tested in a time where I know someone could qualify this. But, you know, I reckon half the people as described to me didn't even realise dyslexia existed. And some of the teachers, like half teachers would be like, no, it doesn't. That's rubbish. But she got me assessed then. But I lost that assessment at university. They asked for an assessment and I'm not even sure they would accept assessment from me since I was like late forties at that stage. And the assessment's 12. So I tried uni the first semester because when I did that course in the past, I told you about I never told anyone I was dyslexic. And I tried it, but after the first semester, it became very clear that you could pretty well wipe off maybe 20 to 30 percent of my grades off of every single subject just before I started it because of my disability. And it became obvious in second semester that to give me a chance to actually do well in it, I needed to say, hey, I've got a disability and to get acknowledged, I needed another testing. So I got tested twice and hey, the assessments align very neatly, which is interesting over 30 years later. That is interesting. I've always wondered if I should get reassessed because at the time I was going through my divorce, so I was in really bad state. So I wonder if there'd be any improvements now or and trying to do my PhD. Surely I've improved somewhat with my writing, but it would be interesting to see. And it's interesting that you say 30 years difference that they still pretty much aligned. Yeah, well, that's that's a really interesting point, because they aligned in terms of the the how the different psychologists, one was done by one. The other one was assessed by two. And the two reports align in the sense that they talk about how, you know, the deficits you have and they sort of value it. And those values were basically the same. What was fascinating about it, I found that in these two reports, this is kind of one of those things. And I'm happy to, you know, share them with you, because I think that I just think that's fascinating is is that I read better, you know, and so I had improved, which is a really it was brilliant. And that was just like, you know, that was like that. That was that was amazing. And, you know, you know, and it sticks in. It's one of those things that I think we're talking about before the podcast out of memory and stuff. It sticks in my head that I was told I'm read like a 15 year old. And I was just like, that is better than I'd ever been assessed or, you know, thought I was ever doesn't mean I comprehend the same way. I can read as fast as 15 year old. I won't recall most of what I read if I read that fast, though, to be to be blunt. But I still when you test that basic thing and time it, I can still regurgitate the words without sort of really soaking it in when I'm reading. And this is complicated. I don't get it myself. But but yeah, so that was interesting is is the progression you make in that and things that they pointed out when I was young, which which I think is is frustrating. And the problem with testing people so young is that they pointed out that they couldn't really tell if I was trying or if I wasn't trying when I was reading. You know, I mean, because by 12, I suppose I had a lot of hang ups, you know, bullying and harassment, reading out loud stuff like this. So they put that we're not sure whether this is a true assessment of certain certain things. And so it's great having that one later, which basically said, no, no, these are these are exactly the same. And they hadn't read my old report because I couldn't find it. So it's interesting to see an independent assessment over 30 years later, just saying, yep, you are this, this, this, this, this. These are your deficits and going, wow. You know, that's they are there's no denying it. It's interesting. There's two two points, hopefully, that don't drop out of my head. As I'm saying, it's starting to drop out of my head is, you know, we can improve, even though we our brains are predisposed to difficulties in reading, that we can improve and the importance of early assessments and interventions so that children have the best opportunity they can to manage their disability and to build skills around it. But also and we're getting way off topic. Sorry. No, no, don't apologize, because it's important. And it's the conversation around assessments, particularly when you go into higher ed and you have to have that assessment. But the like how they couldn't decide whether it really was your dyslexia that was impacting you or whether part of it was this is in my terms of baggage that you brought, because by the time you were 12, you'd gone through all those difficulties. And that's why I had. Yeah. And for me, it was such anxiety to think I was being diagnosed at 27 with this disability and how was my life going to change it? I'd taken all this back. I knew I had all this baggage in. And every time I did the testing, because it was over a few weeks, I'd go and sit in the car and I cry before I went home. Because it's like, oh, my God, there's something wrong with me. And so it's interesting. I wonder, you know, again, the importance of having an assessment when we're younger, like even before we hit preteens, because we're not carrying so much baggage and maybe it is a true reflection or maybe it doesn't matter, because like yours demonstrated, regardless of the age difference, you still those primary challenges were still there. Yeah, yeah. Look, it's I mean, I found a lot of benefit from doing it. I but you know, obviously it's a novel thing. I mean, you can't go back in time. But I mean, now now I think I mean, you'd be better positioned, of course, to tell me me actually what they're doing. But, you know, they're assessing kids a bit better now. And it isn't a part of the part of what happens in school in grade one or two or something that they are they are assessed for reading and writing skills, you know, potentially which would show up us. But it's not a formal assessment. So it's not something you can compare it to. Some some states, I think, are bringing in phonics checking in grade one. Yeah. Which starts to give an early indication that children might be starting to struggle. But I mean, normally dyslexia typically shows up in grade two onwards when we're starting to put sentences together and to read whole words and bigger words. Yeah. So whether grade one, I'm not I mean, yeah, I know that some states are looking at bringing in or they already are. Whether it's too early, I'm not sure. I wouldn't want to comment on phonics. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Look, look, you explain things so much better than regarding this. Oh, well, it's it's an area I don't like to step into very often. But you got I don't want to sidetrack the conversation because it is around how we get into doing our PhDs. But the assessment process is really important. And you had to demonstrate by the time you got into higher ed that you did have dyslexia and disability. And so there's two I guess there's two questions. One is around how do you self advocate once you get through to a PhD level? Because what I've found is that supervisors, there's an there's a misconception that if you're dyslexic, you're never going to get to that level. And I don't know that from that I hated my speech degree and wasn't until I did my masters that I actually started to really love learning and see I could learn. And I just had in my head, I just had to do a PhD. And I don't know whether it was because I wanted to prove to people that I wasn't dumb and that I was succeeding in academia because I'd struggled in my life. It was just in my head I had to do it. I didn't know what I was going to do it in. Originally, it was going to be on Aboriginal communities and that space I love working in. And then finally, it ended up being in dyslexia. But how do you like everyone told you you could do it? So you said I was going to do it. Is that what drove you? Is it to see what's behind the desire to do your PhD, I guess? It's a long window. Yeah, look, look, it's really holistic. And I mean that in, you know, holistic and holistic, you know, both. There's there are a whole lot of things here. I mean, I, I love learning about this stuff. It's like an addiction. it's, It's, it's, it's something which I mean, even without doing study, I'm still, I still do it anyway. You know, I'll still sit there for hours and watch a bug climb up a tree and see how it does and why it does. And, you know, I can't get those out of my head. So, so to me, it was a really natural progression in that sense. The barrier was always dyslexia. I see it as, or dyslexia or something which, which indirectly came from the dyslexia. You know, so having everyone say, so me really wanting to do it because it was just, it's just a continuation of what I do. So it's like, it's like getting the opportunity for someone to pay you to do what you just love doing anyway, even though they make you do certain things like write a lot that you hate. You know, they also make you read like all this research on it, which you love, you know, it's just like you, you, you imagine it and you see what they're doing in your head. Like, yeah, you can really, you can see it and feel it. And you relate it to all those experiences you've had. And it's just, it's just a really, it was just a really sort of like joyful thing for my brain to do in that sense. And it makes the struggle of reading worthwhile. So before I was getting a whole lot of, you know, you know, assistance and, you know, before I was really tapping into the text to speech programs like that, the pain was so worth the benefits. And that's just because it's like an addiction. And that's probably a good way to describe it, because, you know, you know, addiction might not just be the chemicals, it can be the process, the your environment and the whole of other things. And to me, it's just me. And this is the cool thing about sort of like the way I see it as I became a kid again, because these were, this was my escape. One of the escapes I did from the torture of school. It was, you know, and home. And it was, it was, it was really, it was, I only have good, strong, good and wonderful memories from learning about bugs and animals and fish and stuff like that. And and so the PhD basically was somebody just said, hey, look, you know what you you want to do as a dream? You know, you can do that. Here you go. And then which made it when it felt like it was getting taken away from me at some stage because the supports really aren't there at PhD. It made me fight to the death, you know, and I hate using that word. That was really how strongly I felt about it. I wasn't going to give up once, once somebody gave me that carrot. It's that's my carrot, you know, this bunny is angry. And I would like, I want to come back to self -advocacy. But it's interesting you say it's like an addiction, because originally when I wanted to do a PhD, I was like, yeah, that's just something in my head I have to do. But I completely resonate with you when you're it's like you're in your flow and your purpose, like for me. And like even when my mum was dying, I was still writing my papers, still doing my thesis and people say to me, why are you doing it? And you kept saying, take a break. And I said, but that for me, that is where I find my purpose and my passion. And I know the work I'm doing is is going to make change for people. And 100 percent. And I really resonate with that addiction word, because it does feel like it, because you're constant. Like, I just love it. And I keep saying to people, I'm going to do go on and do my prof doc or do another PhD and everyone, because I don't get paid like you. It's all voluntary, six years of voluntary PhD. That's dedication. And but I just love it. And I can't explain it because it's so hard. Writing is so hard. I'm terrible at it. But the concepts and being able to go out and talk to people about what I'm finding in Australian first research, that's the stuff that just drives me to keep going. Yeah. Oh, look, a quick example. We'll get back on track. But this when I was doing what was it? It was it was my undergrad and I was falling behind in stuff. It was my third year, I think I was falling behind and stuff. And I just asked for an extension for my now supervisor. I think it was undergrad or it was undergrad, whether it was honours or not, I'm not sure. Anyway, so my supervisor, my to be supervisor and she said and I was I was volunteering for another scientist. I'm doing all this work, all this work. And she came and goes, What are you doing here? You've asked for an extension, you know, for this work, because you don't have enough time to do it. And here I come in and you're doing volunteering work for somebody else on some other non -related project. Bloody bloody bloody blah. And my response to her was, this is how I relax. Don't take this from me. Don't take this away from me. And and I was so like scared of it being taken from me that she felt it like she's amazing. My supervisor is amazing that she was like, OK, and left me to it. And that's that's it is it's it's it was my she was taking my hobby, you know, and I needed that. I need that to distress. And I needed that to to get my head back in track and to try and so I could get back on the horse and punch it again and sit there for hours trying to write this thing and doing my head in and reading, blah, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, it's funny that our self -care is doing something that is so hard for us. I know, I know. But isn't it great? I mean, haven't we just picked the best careers ever? You know, you know what I mean? It's it's it's a funny life just moves you in funny ways. Well, because I've been meaning to do do a Facebook live in our Facebook group, the other one and our community. And it's about my husband says that I've got an addiction of buying books.

"Hello friends, Early slowdown of Antarctic deep ocean currents. Recently, a new research revealed that deep ocean currents in Antarctica are slowing down much earlier than previously predicted. Key findings of the research are Early slowdown deep ocean currents in Antarctica known as the over -draining circulation are slowing down earlier than predicted with a 30 % slowdown observed over the past three decades. Cause The slowdown is attributed to the melting of Antarctic ice which is disrupting the formation of Antarctic bottom water a dense and oxygen rich water mass that drives the over -draining circulation. Reduced supply of oxygen The decline in Antarctic bottom water formation reduces the supply of oxygen to the deep ocean leading to a decrease in deep ocean oxygen levels. The reduction in oxygen rich bottom water allows water oxygen depleted waters to replace it further reducing oxygen levels in the deep ocean. Impact on deep ocean organisms The slowdown in the over -draining circulation and declining oxygen levels have significant implications for marine life as given small chance in oxygen kind impact deep ocean organisms Behavior and habitat availability May intensify global warming The slowdown may also intensify global warming as the over -draining circulation transports carbon dioxide and heat to the deep ocean and reduced. Ocean storage capacity leads to more carbon dioxide and heat remaining in the atmosphere. Increase in sea levels The reduction in Antarctic bottom water reaching the ocean load increases sea levels due to thermal expansion of warmer waters.
A highlight from BONUS episode From Marine to Entrepreneur: Overcoming Challenges and Thriving
"Since September 11th, 2011, there's been 31 ,000 suicides, veteran suicides. So 7 ,100 of us have perished in combat. 31 ,000 have taken their lives, and part of that, I'm not an expert, I'm not a psychologist, this is just my personal feeling, part of that is lack of purpose. They've transitioned out, this 20 -year war that never ended that really didn't mean anything to anybody now, and they've lost purpose. Welcome, everybody, for our special release podcast. I'm Glenn Wilko here with Mike Lomas. We have a special guest in studio, and this is gonna kinda be a tease. This podcast, we're gonna be releasing now, but we're also gonna release this podcast again in the future as part of a series that we're gonna launch. And this is gonna be like a podcast miniseries, so it's not gonna be a forever podcast. We've got enough of those going already, right? This new series is gonna be a series will be just a probably 10 or 12 -episode series where we're interviewing different business owners, and we're gonna call it something along the lines of you built this. That's still in the works, so by the time this is the actual series release, it might be different. But back in 08, 09, one of the things I found extraordinarily offensive was when the Democrat Party, which really started with Elizabeth Warren, by the way, Obama actually ripped it off. He's not even, he even plagiarized that, the guy. But Obama was the one with the power to really resonate it. Move this thing, yep. And he came out, and he's, you know, everyone remembers famously saying in his speech, he said, well, you didn't build that. You got a factory. Somebody else made that happen, you know? And the whole idea was, and the whole concept, and their little tiny brains, was that somebody else built the road to that factory for you to be able to move their goods. That's right. What these folks didn't realize was that back in the days when some of these factories were built, there was no federal government interstate road system. It was oftentimes the business owner themselves that were indeed building the factory and the road to get things to the market. And they're still doing that because the revenue from that factory is what actually affords the road. Not some liberal in their mom and dad's basement that is on TikTok for the day. Right, but nevertheless, as business owners ourselves, and Mike and I have owned 12 businesses over the years. I think we currently own nine and have sold three. But we've also been extraordinarily fortunate to work with a lot of business owners that have sold businesses, are running businesses, and as I was telling our guests, who I'm gonna introduce in a second, before, I don't wanna tease it here, I'm gonna keep the suspense, before we started the podcast, it's amazing to hear the different stories and be fortunate of the people that have started their business, and how they built it, how they started it, what they had to go through, some of the sacrifices they made, some of the difficulties. I think a lot of people that have never owned a business have no idea what it means. And so this was, this I had an opportunity to bring you in, and I wanted to start with you, Robbie. So Robbie DeNiro is our very first guest here, and we're happy to have you in. Robbie, you obviously have been in the news a lot. You're famous in Western New York, of course, for standing up to the face masks and the garbage when you owned the gym. And I know we're gonna talk about the new business, which I'm excited to hear about, but just start me from the get -go of that business, how hard was it, some of the regulatory stuff. Remember, you started a gym, it's hard enough to start a gym, and then you had to go through COVID when they were trying to shut things down. How hard as a business owner is it to pay bills when you have no income and no revenue? I mean, it's crazy. They were so worried about people's health that they shut the gyms down to help their health. So Robbie, you built it, and I wanna hear how you did it. Well, I appreciate that. Thanks for having me come on. So I had just got done with about 14 years in the Marine Corps. I transitioned out. God bless you, by the way. Thank you. You got it. Greatest 14 years of my life. It's an amazing experience to serve the country, especially as a Marine.
A highlight from The CoverBag with Murp McCarthy
"Marine veteran Murph McCarthy is the creator of the cover bag the best protection for your dress hat or dress uniform cover Coming up next on veteran on the move Welcome to veteran on the move if you're a veteran in transition an entrepreneur wannabe or someone still stuck in that J -o -b trying to escape this podcast is dedicated to your success And now your host Joe Crain As a member owned not -for -profit Navy Federal puts members at the heart of every single thing they do Find out more at Navy federal org All right today we're talking with Marine Corps veteran Murph McCarthy owner of the cover bag calm and The women's rugby coach at the Naval Academy, that's pretty cool So Murph welcome to the show before we get to talking about business and entrepreneurship As a marine fellow aviator having had one of those on this show for a long time. Tell us what you did in the Marine Corps yes, so I Actually, I enlisted right out of high school and things went really well I was a tower air traffic controller and I ended up at the prep school for the Naval Academy and then graduated from the Naval Academy in 2000 then TBS and then went to down to Pensacola and When so helos went out to the FRS out there in Camp Pendleton quickly fell in love with it learned how to fly frogs Then I went to East Coast and I did two deployments on the East Coast And when I came back from that second one, there was a bunch of ospreys on the tarmac you know, I wasn't sure I wanted to get into that so I solicited my services back out to Camp Pendleton and then I ended up with the Purple Did foxes a couple deployments with them and then along the road. I got I got the the drone stink on me Stick with VMU doing drones and when it came time for me to get out of the cockpit I actually my services were sought by people other than myself To go do that again. So I went To VMU three and did a couple deployments With those guys then I came back to the Naval Academy where I was working in the Stockdale Center for ethical leadership and I was teaching leadership and that's when I started coaching rugby at the Academy in 2011 and then I had one last gig down at DITRA defense threat reduction agency where I was doing I was working on the open skies treaty which is a fascinating gig if you can get it, and I don't think you can get it anymore, but and then I retired in 2017 and You know, that was my Marine Corps story from the end of high school 92 to 2017 interesting so You know, sometimes transition is different. You're retiring because at least you got that paycheck of the month club membership, but Sometimes retirement isn't any easier than you know being in being in the military for four years and then getting out also So what was your transition like? Well, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do when I grew up You know, I was still like volunteering coaching rugby and that I Didn't see myself ever getting out of that because that was just a really fun thing for me to do It filled a lot of the you know, what you miss about the Marine Corps stuff for me But I started looking into a couple different business opportunities. I Started a business before I retired probably almost ten years before I retired and that was the cover bag and what ended up being the cover bag calm and that just grew and grew and grew to where You know, I could definitely take up a lot of time just working that when I retired But I'm I knew that was I wanted one more thing at least And that's when I started looking into other business opportunities and I got into fitness I a started franchise in Annapolis and did that I looked at a Number of other franchise opportunities, but I knew fitness was probably going to be what I wanted to do, right? So Was there an entrepreneurial bug inside of you the whole time? You're in the Marine Corps to just come about at a later time Totally. Yeah, like I've been into that kind of thing when I was since I was a kid So I remember getting in trouble for selling fireworks in the bathroom at my junior high school You know, I came up with ideas for stuff to put on ball caps Slinging t -shirts like that was always a thing but the cover bag was an idea I had when I went to the Naval Academy and You know, you're always wearing that combination cover like in the Marine Corps You're lucky especially if you're in aviation like you already ever even see that thing Yeah, buddy with the chicken you're trucking that thing all around all the time and it's white And you know, all you got to do is sit on it once or you know Be holding an ink pen that you probably should have retired a week before next to it And you gotta take the whole thing apart or buy new parts or buy a new one And I'm like man if I just had a bag for this thing, so it was like a couple years of me sketching out what it probably should look like and then designing it and then You know once you make the first couple and then you kind of go from there, but no I've always had that Hey, wouldn't this be a good idea Like I probably I probably do that like three times a week. Yeah, I've always been the same way but I think like especially when I was when you're a kid or when you're really young you have no idea how to Capitalize on your idea like yeah idea how to implement it or execute. I mean, you just don't have those capabilities and then especially nowadays with the internet and all the technology and everything and in Alibaba and China and all these resources that are available You can you could come up with a harebrained idea in just a few months be taking it to market Whereas like 20 30 years ago. It was like almost impossible to do to do. Yeah. No, and that's something you People should keep in mind. Like if you've got what you think is a crazy idea Just keep kind of fleshing it out and then you know for me it was a buddy of mine He's like, hey, I got a buddy who's got a hat and bag factory in Newark, New Jersey And why don't you send me that sketch you talked about? So I sent it to him and the guy produced a demo and And that was the first one like just like that dude. That's awesome.

So When I saw your interview come through Murph I gotta admit I'm like the cover bag and I went to your website and I saw it and I'm like ding I get it instant instant like yep thumbs up and Cuz my wife and I were Amazon sellers for many years. We're totally out of the business now. Amazon just got to be Amazon was like walking through a minefield you like you thinking you're fine all sudden kaboom your right leg's missing You're like what the fuck? anyways So we're out of Amazon now, but I loved Amazon cuz like we talked about earlier when you're when you're young You come all these hair brained ideas. That's a great idea for product That's a great idea and I could I could run them to ground and be and be putting it on Amma be putting a great product on Amazon, you know within a few months sometimes Sometimes that's not a good thing because if it turned out not to be a good idea you lose a lot of money At least I could exercise these ideas for the first time in my life. And so I have a true appreciation for a great product and I Remember, you know getting my uniforms at the Marine Corps shop or the marine the marine shop in there in Quantico And I think I still have that white shredded cardboard box with my white cover in it somewhere back in storage and and I The whole time I'm like, how am I supposed to carry this thing around? I mean for 20 plus years in the Marine Corps I carded that thing around in a cardboard box and somehow it managed to work out for him when I saw the cover bag I'm like, oh, yeah, like I get it that that's it. Like like how did how'd you just come up with that idea? It was just I mean I get it It's like it's like a problem every one of us dealt with but nobody ever thought of the idea or at least executed on the idea Yeah, well, I always thought we you know, they're expensive So all you gotta do is have to replace one and you're like man, how do I not do that again? Yeah, and that's where it started but when I had You know that run -in with my buddy's friend who said he could make me a demo I was like a demo sounds like it sounds like I'm in it But he he produced, you know The first cover bag from my sketch and I and all I had was like a little couple tweaks And he sent I ordered about 15 of them and I opened up the box of these 15 cover bags And I handed him out to the guys that were doing the color guard For the ball when we had the ball the next night and when the Marines were like, holy shit, sir This is awesome. Where'd you get these? I was like funny story like I invented that and they're like what and then I knew that I had something and that's Really? Yeah pulling my money together and like spending quality time thinking about how I was gonna do it Wow Yeah, I got like a thousand questions cuz and like I said, I'm a product guy Like I love cool products and the idea behind it. So interviewing somebody that created a product it became successful Because it was just the right idea and Let me tell you man. I don't know if you realize this bit. It is hard to find to Manufacture something in the US and it's great that this is a military product Which by the way, I want to point out like I know in the Navy Marine Corps. We call it a cover your uniform hat The other services. I'm sure the Air Force didn't call it a cover. They probably caught a hat I'm not I'm not sure about the army But you know, I want to point out a cut the cover is your official military head piece or your you know It's your military hat but in the Marine Corps Navy, we call it the cover So your product is called the cover bag But I suppose you you wouldn't have wanted to call it the hat bag because then it would have just been like anything No, and I you know how you always wondered like you watch a commercial Or hear like a radio ad you're like I'm confused but like three minutes later you're still talking about it I think some of that. Yes, I think some of that has happened with calling it the cover back You know because I thought that I was gonna be selling to guys like you and me Like I thought this was gonna be you know by the troops for the troops type thing Yeah, but I have a ton of customers that are moms and Grandmas wives like they don't know what a cover is So they're like I pick up the phone and somebody says cat bag 95 % of the time really and I just I just kind of roll with it because it's one of those You got all these old ladies buying it to you're talking about it. So let's keep that up It's like the the the Red Hat Ladies Club is buying your bag for their hats and stuff or fancy hat No, they're buying it for their husband's boyfriend's grandchildren The cover bag is a huge gift idea like I'll send I'll sell like six figures worth of these things through the Marine Corps exchanges in a year I sell a lot more than that to friends and families of people graduating Parris Island and MCRD San Diego. It's it's absolutely fascinating and Much in the same way as cover bags hat bags hat covers all that stuff My favorite is that you know, I don't pay anything for advertising like I tried it a couple times It was to me It was like wasting money because I couldn't figure out if it was doing anything at all But people will get on Facebook and argue about what should be Embroidered on the cover bag. No, it should be last name first name. No, it should just be the initials No It should be first name and then the middle name and then the last name and I'm like this is amazing because it'll go on And then the website goes ding ding ding Yeah, well I suppose you know first initial middle initial last name, you know, maybe rank before that might you know if you're selling them to all the eighth and I Marines if it becomes that if he becomes a Regular issue piece of gear. Well, then you gotta you gotta do by right? I think that's probably eventually gonna happen. Yeah Yeah, the Marines like solve a lot of your problems. They just make you do stuff The Marine Corps ever figures out. Hey, we don't want anybody walking around with a bad -looking cover again We're gonna put one of them cover bags in their c -bag issue. Yeah, that's it. That'll solve that. Yeah Yeah, well then they won't have to walk around with it in you in there with their bent arm and hand, you know So So what are some of your numbers that you can share with us or just to give us a perspective on? How successful the cover bags? Well, to be honest The company's not openly for sale, so I'm not really in tune exactly with the numbers But I've been trying to get in with the Navy exchange So the last gentleman that worked there He didn't really understand and like how the cover bag was an amazing piece of gear But they're starting to get the memo now and the main number I've been talking with them is like hey Do you know I I do over six figures worth of business with the MCX at the Navy exchanges of which there is many Many more. Can you imagine how good this would do if it was available? Yeah to the Navy first hand and then retail, you know I do I do a lot more business retail than I do goals for sale. So well, dude, that's awesome. This is good you're always gonna need to protect that cover and like I said the the parents and Girlfriends wives and grandparents are on Facebook talking about what needs to be on a cover bag and they're like, what's a cover bag? Cover and then there I am my website just gets the pinks. Yeah You know, it's like that the old the old Henry Ford story where he says Well, if I had asked the customer what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse, you know, or right There's a quote similar from Steve Jobs Like sometimes the customer doesn't really know what they're looking forward what they need until they see it You can have any color car you want as long as it's black the other Henry Ford one yeah, and The cover bags kind of like that because if you said what's one of the biggest, you know You know pain in the ass things you do you deal with with your uniform? Nobody would have said I wish I had something to carry my cover in but I mean hardly anybody would have said that but When they see when they see the cover bag, they're like, oh, yeah I want one of them because I that is a pain point for me I just never realized that there would be as ever solution for it yeah, no, it's it's a no -brainer and eat and like People that aren't, you know actively using the cover like the parents can figure out that a cover bags a great idea And the other thing is, you know, mom's don't want to be buying their kids, you know, whiskey flasks and knives Something Practical they're not gonna put alcohol in or possibly shank somebody with It works out pretty good to get him a cover back and embroidery everybody loves embroidery that Yeah Now it's got your name on it, oh, yeah The embroidery thing for the cover bag is when it really exploded Yeah, and there's a nice big surface area on the thing for plenty of embroidery you can Yeah It takes a while if you come up with a design and you want me to put it on there that takes a little more time a little more involved, but I got plenty of patch choices and You can put whatever name you want on there nicknames Like if people get too wrapped up in what name they want in there or what order I'll be like Does your does your son have a pretty cool nickname? They're like, oh, yeah, we call him Sparky.

I talked with Ro Khanna yesterday, your colleague, about a lot of things, but I did not cover your Washington Post article because I wasn't aware of it at the time I talked to Ro Khanna. Do the Democrats agree with you in the Washington Post article that we ought not to be funding with American dollars Chinese aircraft carriers? Some do. I mean, I think everyone can agree upon at least that aspect of it, that American dollars should not be funding the Chinese Communist Party's military buildup. Make no mistake, they're embarked on the largest sustained peacetime military buildup since World War II, potentially ever, depending on how you defined it. We shouldn't be investing our money in Chinese aircraft carriers, fighter jets, artillery shells, advanced nuclear technology, but that's what's happening. We launched a bipartisan investigation into BlackRock and MSCI. My ranking member, Raja Krishnamoorthi, has expressed a ton of concern about American dollars funding Chinese military buildup. In many cases, this money is going to companies that have already been flagged on various government blacklists for posing national security risks. What's crazy, Hugh, is that it's not illegal, but it's suicidal. We're subsidizing our own destruction. We're allowing pension funds, university endowments to invest in Chinese companies that are building things designed to kill Americans in a future conflict. No matter where you draw the line for decoupling, let's say you just want transparency measures, as some Republicans do. You want a broader set of restrictions on American money going into China, as I do. I think what's inarguable is that money shouldn't be funding military companies and technology companies like AI companies in China that are perfecting their genocidal surveillance state. Now, the Financial Times also ran a story this morning that Goldman Sachs has been taking Chinese money, laundering it in effect. It's not criminal, but they're hiding the origin of the money, and they're buying U .S. companies. It's the opposite of what BlackRock is doing, which is sending American money to Chinese companies. They're taking Chinese money and putting it into American companies. Do you want to stop that flow as well? Well, particularly if these are national security -related companies, I saw that some of the investments were in the cyber space and in the supply chain space. It all depends on what type of control comes with the investment, but potentially, that could give them access to information or effective control over companies. That would be bad for American national security. I think it's definitely worth looking into. The bottom line is, Congress, we need to step up and legislate a fix to some of this stuff, whether it's on outbound capital flows, which the Biden administration just released an executive order that's filled with loopholes. It's a step in the right direction, but it doesn't go far enough. We need to legislate that when it comes to Chinese money being invested in American companies. We tried to fix CFIUS to get at some of that issue, but clearly, it's not up to the task. We need to legislate a fix to that. Here's the other thing, Hugh, that I find interesting when it comes to American investments in China. In addition to being morally reprehensible, the Chinese funds have been terrible investments. Over the last five years, the S &P 500 has soared to about 78%. Meanwhile, things like BlackRock's FXI ETF, which invests in these Chinese large -cap companies, it's down 30 % in that same period, even as Chinese GDP supposedly doubled. That doesn't make sense. A lot of the funds we looked at in our investigation similarly underperformed drastically. Where did the money go? Is it going into corrupt Communist Party coffers? I don't know. My only point is that beyond the national security concerns, just as an investment proposition, China looks bad. There are systemic risks to a continued investment in China that range from having your assets seized in the event they try and take over Taiwan, or just the inherent risk involved in things like variable interest entities, for which there are no shareholder protections. Part of what we're trying to do on the committee in a bipartisan fashion is to engage Wall Street in a dialogue about this. It just seems insane to me that we would continue to send our money to China, where it's being used for nefarious purposes. Well, you know, Chairman, the investment bankers make their bonuses based upon the amount of money they move through. So they have every Adam Smith -driven incentive to just blow you off. Does your panel have subpoena power, by the way? We do. I would grab Larry Fink. I would grab Jamie Dimon. Separate hearings. And I would put them down and say, let's talk about this because it's a national crisis. Let me ask you, by the way, I think if I had a bell, I would have rung it when you said Sisyphus. I believe that violates the acronym rule, does it not? Oh, you got me, Hugh. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. I apologize. $10 to Food for the Poor, because that's it. It's $10 tip jar for Food for the Poor. When you use an acronym. I want to talk to you about increased applying unilaterally. I did because you're a repeat offender. Like, you know, that on the sentencing guidelines, people who do the same thing over and over again, they get fined more. Princeton people are particularly prone to this. And then when you pick up a Ph .D. from Georgetown, you really become. And then you go to Marine. Did you ever go to the command general staff college or the war college or anything like that? No, I got out as a captain before I had to do all that before my brain was corrupted. Well, they have many acronyms there. I'm listening to a bio of Eisenhower and I can't keep up. Let me ask you something, Chairman. Ro Khanna was on and we were talking about artificial intelligence. And he said they're sitting down with the speaker about what to do. I have no preconceived opinions, but I do think they might want to just add the Select Committee on Engagement with the Chinese Communist Party, and artificial intelligence regulation, because you've got a smart group of people. It's working. Would you be opposed to that if the speaker and the minority leader wanted to expand the jurisdiction of the committee to look at what we do about A .I.? Not at all. And we've actually, in our early investigation, had numerous conversations about A .I. and I would expect those to be part of future policy reports. We release, I would note Ro Khanna is my ranking member on the innovation subcommittee on armed services. And we see eye on a lot of things related to military innovation going forward and have a very good working relationship. And he's willing and I think him going on your show is a testament to this. One thing I really respect about Ro is he's willing to mix it up. Obviously, he's very progressive. We disagree on a lot of issues. I'm right. He's wrong. But I respect his intellect and his willingness to mix it up. Three quick ideas here on A .I. for small steps we can take in this Congress as we consider sort of the broader long -term implications. Well, related to what we were just talking about, American venture capitalists, American money in general shouldn't be allowed to invest in Chinese A .I. companies like Baidu. It just makes absolutely no sense. Again, we're subsidizing our own destruction. Two, when it comes to autonomous vehicle technology, which is going to be one of the most widespread deployments of A .I. in a way that really affects the American people over the next 10 years, right now of the 10 -ish companies that are allowed to test in America, at least three I believe are Chinese, but our companies are not allowed to test in China or expand really at all in China. And as a matter of reciprocity, that's wrong. We shouldn't allow Chinese A .V. companies here in America. And then finally, the ethical guidelines that the Pentagon has for the use of A .I. are a decent start. They're pretty good. I actually think we could build off those, expand those across the federal government with the goal of not innovation suppressing on A .I. or slowing down our efforts in this area, but also ensuring there are guardrails so that we don't have uncontrolled A .I. that does things that Americans are concerned about. And then you start to build out the concentric circle so we're on the same page with our allies. Start with our closest allies, the Brits and the Aussies, and then expand from there, and particularly focus on countries that have a unique technological capability in A .I. If we do that, if we get sort of the overall ethical framework right, I actually think we can turbocharge innovation in this space and make sure that we win the A .I. race and the CCP does not win the A .I. race. Well, it is a national security issue, but I've got three suggestions for you and your colleagues. First of all, a stand down order to every regulatory agency out there, the FTC and everybody else. They have no idea what they're doing. They just don't. A .I. is new. It's not meant for old regulatory structures like the Interstate Commerce Commission trying to regulate airplanes. Doesn't work. Number two, you've got to change the pay scale for technologists. Now, they used to have a special pay scale out at China Lake for the rocket scientists that we needed at China Lake and other advanced weaponry systems. We need a technologist pay scale that is just way better than we've got. We're going to lose every technologist that DARPA has. And then number three, and this is what I want to ask you about, we need visibility. I mean, walk in rights to every room in Silicon Valley and every A .I. company in the United States. By walk in rights, I mean, if a guy from DARPA shows up and they knock on the door at Metta and he says, show me to your A .I. lab, they don't get to lock the door. These are like nuclear science. We can't let this stuff be developed in private. Do you agree with me? I agree with that. I guess the flip side of that, though, Hugh, is enough research security such that, you know, an MSS operative, a Ministry of State Security think KGB in China couldn't just walk in to the same facility or United Front operative. And honestly, your reference to China Lake, I think, is a great instructive example here, because when it comes to the things we put in our weapons systems, we have a very old suite of things called energetics, which make our weapons go and go boom. We develop more advanced energetics at China Lake. It's called CL20. It stands for China Lake 20. The Chinese stole that technology. That's what they put in their weapons systems. And that's why their their rockets go farther than us and have greater destructive impact. So that's a lesson in how not to do things. And we remain too risk averse to use things like CL20, even though it's now old technology. It was developed in the 80s. So a lot of examples that we can use from there in order to apply to the A .I. competition today. I'm going to geek out. The Office of Personnel Management, AKA OPM, so I don't get fined. OPM had a separate schedule for scientists at China Lake that was policed by the deputy director I replaced, the deputy director at OPM. He was a scientist who had worked there. And he said, you know, no one's going to work for us unless we pay them. It was like double the highest number. Rowe said yesterday we got to pay him like we pay our doctors. No, no, no. We're not going to. This is the most lucrative field in the world. You got to give him a piece of the intellectual property. I mean, you really have to come to grips with the fact that technologists make the dollars. And I don't know that the American people really understand the difference between what the private sector pays a level one technologist and what the government will. We're going to lose everybody.
A highlight from Ep365: 4 Things To Help You Improve As A Podcaster - Richard Walsh
"What you want to do from the business podcast standpoint, it builds authority. When you do a quality podcast, again, you're bringing on the right guests. Oh, you're presenting the proper contact. Builds a lot of authority, gives people an easy access. It's free. They can listen. You can build that know, like, and trust factor and really get that authority stand in front of them. Most hosts never achieved the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. What's up, podcaster. It's Adam A. Adams, and I've got a returning guest today. His name's Richard Walsh. We will connect you with the previous episode he was on more than two years ago, which was episode number 45 in the 350 or 360 or three 70 range. But back over 300 episodes ago, he was on the podcast about two years ago. What that means that I'm averaging three a week. I think that's what it means. Three episodes a week, Richard Walsh. His bio is in the show notes. You can check out the other link when he was on his company link is in the show notes and also his podcast itself. So that way you can follow him, check him out, get to know him, hire him. He's a business coach. And the podcast name is E .T .O .P. What does E .T .O .P. stand for again? So that's E .T .O .P. Escape the owner prison escape. That's the title of my best. That's right. I remember my best selling book and I modeled that up. Hey, you know what, Richard? When I was looking at your Facebook, we're connected on Facebook. I thought it was interesting. The regiment for your son. Can we talk a little bit about that? Yes, I love to talk about that. OK, all right. So right now he's doing three workouts every single day. What is this like? So he's going in the Navy, OK, which we wouldn't be doing three workouts a day if he was just going to the Navy. I'm a Marine. OK, he's not going to be a Marine because they don't need to. And we'll leave it at that. OK, no offense. The Navy guys out there, they say the Marine Corps is a department of the Navy, but it's the men's department. OK, so I've never heard. I like it. I love being, you know, I'm not original. So he was going, what's called the buzz program. So that's basic underwater demolition seals training. So he wants to be a Navy seal like it's and everybody does. And they'll go in there and there's a 90 percent fill rate. OK, and most of that's even in the first couple of days. OK, well, he's not going to be that. OK, he's going to make it. He's under no delusions of what it is, knows exactly what he's up for. So we embarked on about two and a half months ago. We did about a five month program to get him ready. So my whole goal is to increase the probability for success. OK, so obviously it's a huge physical demand, but really the real demand is mental. OK, they break you, you break. And it's not as long as you don't quit. You'll pretty much make it if you got the head for it. OK, so but physically, again, the increased probability of success. We need to train properly. OK, so I'll give you a real quick what he does. So in the morning, we do a 45 minute conditioning workout. So that's a lot of body weight and includes pull ups, pull ups, push ups, squats, lunges, burpees, you name it. Like we do a ton of stuff, you know, probably body weight or maybe add weight and stuff like that very hard, do 10 sets of that. So we'll do 100 of everything. You'll do 500 reps of stuff in the morning from there would go directly about less than 30 minutes from there. He'll do a six to 10 mile run, which is hills. We're in a very hilly country out here to do a six to 10 mile road run that in the afternoon we go back for pool and he'll do one to two miles of combat side stroke freestyle to work on training water, of course, underwater on your breath. So he actually trains on that as well. It was a boxer as well. We're doing last two years, so we will occasionally do bag workouts or as he did last night, went and sparred eight rounds with four different guys. So we do this five to six days a week, depending on the six, they will vary. And we also have what you saw today at our house in the yard. It created kind of a little outdoor training. So we'll do like an 80 pound log carry for 60 yards. He'll do 10 burpees. He'll do 60 yard bear crawl. He'll do an 80 pound log carry for 60 yards. He'll run with the 35 pound med ball extended above his head to simulate the boats they run with for 60 yards. Then he'll do a 20, a 20 foot rope climb, and they'll come down and take a 50 pound dumbbell and do a single arm farmer's carry, which is just carried at his side, he'll go 35 yards out, switch hands, do 35 yards back. And we'll do that five times. And normally do that right after his six mile run. And we'll do them. So that's three different workouts and it sounds crazy. And it's cause he wants to be in the men's department. Well, he says, yeah, well, yeah, he does, but you'll see it. I train with seals and everything else too. So they are the elite warriors of the world and he wants to be an elite warrior. Okay. That's what he really wants the skills and stuff like that. So, um, and he has a no quit mindset and that's why. Speaking of no quit mindset, I quoted you and I loved it. I loved the quote says, as long as you don't quit, you'll make it. And I was in junior high, middle school. And, and my band director made us memorize quotes. And one of the quotes I could actually a few of the quotes were about persistence and determination. Not quitting, not giving up one being from Calvin Coolidge. And he basically said like, it's not how smart you are. It's not how intelligent you are, even how educated you are or how cool you are, how funny you are, how good looking you are a lot of those things don't really make somebody successful, but what makes somebody successful is never quitting, never giving up. And so like when we're starting a podcast, it's hard, it's brutal. And he's about to go to, I guess it's probably called hell week or something. Is that what it's called? Yeah. In the program buds itself is like 35 weeks long and that's in like week five. Hell week is week five. Okay. Okay. So yeah, it's a lot more than people. Yeah. 35 weeks, nine months or something with basic and airborne school. It's almost a year to get the whole thing done. Okay. And well, so first and foremost, I want to take something that you mentioned that I think you've taken with you to your business also to your business clients that you mentor, you coach them also to your son, the mindset that you've had to be successful, the mindset that he's having to be successful. And I'm extracting this as long as you don't quit, he'll make it. As long as you just keep getting back up when you get knocked down, you'll make it. And I am curious how this can tie into you and your journey. I know you have episode 45, 45. You were on for episode 45, and I'm sure you've gotten knocked down in the last two years. It's been over two years since you've been on. I'm sure you got knocked down as you were starting your business or you started your podcast. How would you feel just to share some of the trials and how you got through them? Just a few ideas, two or three trials that you've gotten through to get to where you are right now. Absolutely. I'll give you a quick quote too, about losing and quitting.

"Obviously. He joined the Marines as well and he fought at Guadalcanal. These were two very tough men.

Correspondent Linda Kenyon has the story week. From Washington. He will become the first ever former president of the United States to be charged with federal crimes. The 37 count indictment includes charges of willfully possessing documents clearly marked with national secrets, refusing to return them to the government and conspiring to obstruct related investigations. He's also accused of sharing sensitive US secrets with those who had no security clearance. Here's how it all works as former federal prosecutor David Weinstein. You are processed first by the U .S. Marshals Service office out of sight of everyone and in their offices. That means fingerprinting, photographing, as as well the assignment of a Bureau of Prisons number. In the courtroom, the former president will enter his plea. One of his attorneys, Alina Haba, tells Fox News there will be no plea deal. I know I would never especially advise when that, he's not done anything wrong. You take a plea deal to make something go away. That's an admission of guilt. And Donald Trump says Haba is not guilty of anything. He's done nothing wrong. He said that this is completely politically motivated. Trump's former Attorney General, Bill Barr, tells Fox News Trump is, in fact, of guilty some very serious crimes. As for the allegations that the case against Trump is politically motivated. Battle plans for an attack of another country or Defense Department documents about our capabilities are in no universe. Donald J. Trump's personal documents.

Well the Ukraine and Russia failing to clinch a ceasefire and talks that ended in Istanbul on Tuesday today Moscow saying it will reduce military operations in areas where its forces are being pushed back calling for security guarantees from the EU and NATO members a lot going on So let's get to it Joining us right now is retired major general masten Robson He is geopolitical intelligence adviser to the academy's advisory board and he served over 34 years on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps and was in more than 60 countries He is on the phone in South Carolina Also with us is Bloomberg political news director for Bloomberg radio and TV Jodi Schneider major Robson with the academy securities advisory board as we said Jody let's start with you headlines optimism We saw it play out in the markets a little bit What do we really know Yeah does the markets for optimistic equity and oil markets It seemed that they were maybe a little bit trying to get excited about something that maybe isn't quite there There were talks today in Istanbul They ended without a ceasefire without Russia really committing to much saying it's cutting back forces in Kyiv but they're losing there So they're already sort of on the retreat there They haven't said anything about the other areas where they have been advancing And they haven't said anything about the major things on the table withdrawal ceasefire What happens next Any security kinds of guarantees the things that Ukraine has been seeking and anything about NATO and anything that the west has been seeking So it really does seem like it's the start of talks There's talk about a pathway to Putin and zelensky meeting But again nothing concrete So they didn't go badly but there wasn't a lot that you could take away from them And I think the markets were just optimistic on the fact that they're going somewhere maybe really slowly Major general come on in here and weigh in on this and give us your reaction to seeing this news that at least here in the United States crossed overnight Is it a reason for optimism Economically or military militarily It's definitely not up to this And I think we need to be clear of terms People never say he's withdrawing What he'll say is he's attacking a new direction He's refocusing his campaign which I think is what he's doing It's a disaster for him to go back home without a win If you buy into the idea that Putin's long-term end goal now he's a president for life and basically has done everything he can do Wealthy What he really wants to elevate Russia to the world stage once again And he can't do that without some sort of bringing something home So in the current campaign I think that he'll continue to inflict damage on the city to the west in the north Most of the indirect fire and air because he can't if he lets go of that he loses that pressure he's putting everybody loses that as part of the bargaining of I will stop if I get something in return I think he'll consolidate campaign He'll move it to a more limited objective in the Donbass And keep in mind that there really are only three options Putin has He quipped and I don't think any of us think he's going to do that He escalates and we know the warning that when we found an offering to negotiation that allows both sides to be able to clean something but most importantly Putin's got to be able to claim something he's achieved with this And if you fast forward to the end of the year at the end of two years the end of the month whenever this comes to a peaceful resolution or an off ramp who's going to have to ask some explanation when the forces come back to Russia without equipment and without a lot of soldiers who are dead or that are wounded as to was this worth it what did we get So what does win look like for Putin is a good starting point for how do we find an off ramp decrease negotiation room to be able to bring a settlement Major general this is Jodi Schneider What does that off ramp What could that off ramp look like What are the potentials there Because as you pointed out there's fairly limited options here Yeah and I'd like to say it's box seats that professional athletics games here in the United States That's probably not going to do it But what we've heard president zelensky talk about He's mentioned neutrality He's mentioned the plausibility of is there some agreement with Crimea that's more official He's mentioned the Donbass And I think those are the three that are most likely to be on the table Is Putin willing to accept a neutrality agreement It's official in this a state driven in the ground that certainly gives him what he said he wanted which is Ukraine never becomes part of NATO They are a neutral If desi does he get crop here as an official part of the Russian confederation That's probably a plausible something on the table to negotiate over Donbass will be harder It will want something hard in Donbass that shows it was worth his time And zelensky is going to want independence for Donbass And that's really where I think it'll boil down to the negotiation of how do you sweeten the pot for Putin and how do you sweeten the pot for zelensky to be able to come up with an agreement I have a hard time seeing where we're going to pressure him economically to make a decision right now General Robson if you were advising President Biden and current military forces have things changed at least for the media medium term in terms of how the world and certainly NATO and the United States will look at Russia going forward is Russia going to be secluded because of this Is there no way of kind of going back at least like I said in the short and medium term Because there's no way of going back to where we were but that doesn't mean it's not a place to go that could be positive for everybody These types of things certainly create scars and create memories And they create problems In regard to President Biden I think he's done what he can do short of trying to keep this from escalating And that's what his primary objective is How do we do something to push pressure on Putin without escalation Putin on the other hand you know has a different metric of what he wants So my advice President Biden is probably rallied the world unbelievably successfully that nobody thought the plausible at this point is unified or at least Russia has unified Putin's unified NATO he's unified the EU He's unified the world against the economically None of which I think he thought was plausible early on when he said We got to run

the Bloomberg terminal that says it like this Traders hold their breath as China markets reopen after the holiday What do you think will happen Louis Yes I think you might see a short term reprieve a little bit more of a strength in a bound as people expect kind of new regulations to come to an end I think there's a little bit of optimism that November could see online game approvals restart But I think the real indicator is really when does the PBOC release liquidity and thereby actually necessitate a few more months of property market poor up numbers there before they really start to release liquidity Lewis excuse me David here in Hong Kong I guess to that point on the PBOC coming out with liquidity In what form do you think that's going to come Drips and drabs or anything that's going to be a big bazooka because they have done to form already I think you might see maybe in the coming months one or two more triple our cuts I think you're going to see loan quarters expand And I think that might actually be more like a January of February event rather than something in the fourth quarter unless the property market slows down dramatically I think right now they're fairly confident and very calm about it So I don't think the big bazooka is going to come quite yet We haven't seen a lot of trading in obviously in Chinese talks although we've had Hong Kong open but a lot of people would have been hoping that the regulatory crackdown might be easing at some point but it sounds like if you listen to those comments today that's not in store at the moment Yes I think that there's going to be some regulatory fine tuning down the road I don't see a huge negative turn in terms of new regulations dramatically new regulations I think the sense is in the Internet space maybe we're
