As rumors floated throughout the last couple weeks, many speculated on what a package would look like for Pablo López. Well, here it is. The Minnesota Twins have traded Luis Arraez to the Miami Marlins for López, SS José Salas and OF Byron Chourio. It's a massive move for the Twins who decided to trade their primary leadoff man and the 2022 American League batting champion. In return, the Twins get a steady arm in López, who would've paced the team with 180 innings pitched last season. López, 26, harnesses a fastball in the mid 90s with a great changeup. He can safely join Sonny Gray at the top of the Twins' rotation. Twins Daily's Matt Braun joins us to break down this blockbuster deal. Follow & Subscribe on all Podcast platforms…

Arraez, 25, just won the American League batting title after hitting .316/.375/.420 in 144 games. Arraez is a fan favorite and a beloved figure in the clubhouse.

We start the podcast talking about Carlos Correa and his finally-ending saga. But then we dive into a team that we didn't know all that much about until we went through the archives. After the Dodgers and Giants moved to California following the 1957 season it was only 4 years later that the Los Angeles Angels began playing as an expansion team in the American League. They were actually co-tenants with the Dodgers in the new Chavez Ravine stadium which opened in 1962. With only one World Series title in their history the Angels have suffered more than most teams. The awful playoff loss to the Red Sox in 1986 was one of the most difficult series losses of all time. But the Angels have had stars!  And HOFers passed through like Nolan Ryan, Rod Carew, and even a late -career Reggie Jackson.  Mike Trout is a lock to be a HOFer as an Angel.  Vlad Guerrero Sr. is the only player to wear an Angel cap when inducted (and we think he was better as an Expo).  Gordon thinks Shohei Ohtani has a really good chance.  Please subscribe to our podcast and thanks for listening!

He batted .341 over a 19-year career, placing him in the top 10 on the all-time batting list. He played for the National League's Superbas (Dodgers), Orioles, and Giants and the Highlanders (Yankees) of the American League will win election to the Hall of Fame in 1939. He is credited with the baseball axiom, “Keep your eyes clear, and hit 'em where they ain't.”

December 26th Show Notes December 26, 1919 —  Boston Red Sox owner Harry Frazee makes a secret agreement to sell Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees for $100,000 (one-fourth cash, plus $25,000 a year at 6 percent) plus guaranteeing a $300,000 loan with Fenway Park as collateral. The transaction will be announced publicly in one week. December 26, 2005 — The Associated Press reports that baseball took a lot of shots in 2005 from politicians, commentators and players themselves as the sport struggled with steroids. MLB went from no drug policy in 2002 to anonymous testing in 2003, to counseling for positive tests in 2004, to a dozen 10-day suspensions this year. Starting next year, an initial positive test will result in a 50-game suspension, and players will be tested for amphetamines for the first time, with penalties for a second positive result. MLB took similar shots in 1973, many people don't realize this, but they were on the hot seat by the Staggers Committee that found steroid and amphetamine use in baseball was alarming in November of 1973. Bowie Kuhn was there and testified under oath along with Bud Selig. They did vow to clean up the game and congress let them off easy and never reviled the names of the players, unlike 2003. Tom House would later tell folks that 6 of 8 players were using steroids and his famous line was we never felt we lost, we were out-milligrammed.  Born: December 26, 1954 in Mobile, AL. Defying critics who said he was too small and would never hit enough to stay in the big leagues, Ozzie Smith soared through the infield with his acrobatic moves, redefining the role of shortstop. He won 13 consecutive Gold Gloves and set a major league record for assists by a shortstop. Dealt to the St. Louis Cardinals early in his career, Smith became one of the most popular players in franchise history. A switch-hitter, Ozzie blasted one of his few home runs from the left side of the plate to win the 1985 National League pennant. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2002, his first year of eligibility. Died: December 26, 2013 in Baltimore, MD An eight-time Gold Glove Award winner, Paul Blair was the best defensive center fielder in the American League in the late 1960s and early 1970s. With uncanny instincts and great speed, Blair positioned himself perfectly, often gliding into shallow center to snare would-be singles. He had several great moments in the postseason, including a game-winning homer in Game 3 of the 1966 World Series, and a leaping catch the next day to prevent a home run. In 1970, Blair was hit in the cheek, under his left eye, by a fastball from Ken Tatum of the Angels. It shattered about four different bones in his face and he underwent surgery. He missed 21 games but rebounded to play another 10 seasons. Contrary to some who say he was never quite the same hitter, Blair claimed he was unaffected by the incident. He never saw Tatum's pitch, so, Blair said “I was never haunted by images of the ball hitting me.” On January 20, 1977, Blair was traded to the New York Yankees. On June 18 of that year in a nationally televised game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, he was involved—though not directly—in one of the most bizarre scenes in baseball history. Yankee manager Billy Martin took right fielder Reggie Jackson out of the game and replaced him with Blair after Jackson had misplayed Jim Rice's fly ball for a double. As the cameras watched, Jackson and Martin nearly came to blows. After winning World Series titles with the Yankees in 1977 and 1978, Blair was released early in the 1979 season. He earned four World Series rings, two with the Orioles and two with the Yankees. December 26, 1947 – Future Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk is born in Bellows Falls, Vermont. A unanimous Rookie of the Year selection in 1972, when he would win his only gold glove, the studious Carlton Fisk was at times the best catcher in the American League during the 1970s and 1980s. He hit one of the most dramatic home runs in postseason history, winning Game 6 of the 1975 World Series for the Red Sox. Fisk was one of the most interesting characters of his era. He marched to the beat of his own drum. While with the Red Sox, he earned a reputation as a tough competitor and clubhouse lawyer. In both Boston and Chicago, he clashed with his GM and owners, and he was involved in the collusion case against baseball in the late 1980s. In that case, free agents like Fisk and Kirk Gibson charged that owners had conspired to limit free-agent movement. The players won in a slam dunk and Fisk emerged even more bitter and suspicious. As a player, Fisk walked like an 85-year-old man, even when he was in his twenties. He was very concerned with his appearance, and he took as much time as any batter in preparing to hit. He once walked so slow to the mound to talk to his pitcher, that Rangers' manager Bobby Valentine wondered if he was "paid by the hour." Fisk considered himself a protector of the game's honor. On numerous occasions, he challenged teammates for failing to play the game properly or (worst of all) failing to hustle. In a celebrated incident, he nearly came to blows with the entire New York team after he admonished Yankee rookie Deion Sanders for failing to run out a routine grounder. Shocked by the confrontation, Sanders later apologized for his actions. At the end of his career, Fisk had proved most of his critics and skeptics wrong, playing more games than any other catcher in baseball history, despite injuries (many of them before the age of 30), having to fight for playing time, and a tall frame that took abuse. Over 24 seasons, his back and knees held up well and he caught his last game at the age of 45. He was the Nolan Ryan of the catching profession. With the White Sox, he set single-season and career records for homers by a catcher, as well as games caught in a career. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000.

We are so honored to be joined by Former MLB Player, Born in Anola, Manitoba, Canada in 1973, the same day as Elon Musk, Corey Koskie. Koskie was a multi-sport star in high school, excelling in baseball, hockey and volleyball. After choosing to focus on baseball, he honed his skills at the National Baseball Institute in Surrey, B.C., in 1993 before he was selected in the 26th round of the 1994 MLB amateur draft by the Minnesota Twins. The 6-foot-3 slugger played parts of five seasons in the minors prior to making his big league debut on September 9, 1998. He became a regular with the Twins the following season when he hit .310 and belted 11 home runs in 117 games – a performance that earned him a spot on the Topps's 1999 All-Star Rookie team. But his true breakout season would come two years later, when he scored 100 runs, socked 26 homers, collected 103 RBI and swiped 27 bases to become the first third baseman in American League history to record at least 100 runs, 25 homers, 100 RBI and 25 stolen bases in the same season. For his efforts, he was named co-winner (with Larry Walker) of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame's Tip O'Neill Award. In the ensuing three campaigns, he never hit less than 14 home runs in a season and he helped the Twins to three consecutive playoff berths. On December 14, 2004, he signed with the Toronto Blue Jays and would slam 11 homers in 97 contests for the Canadian club in 2005, prior to being swapped to the Milwaukee Brewers in January 2006. He had 12 homers in 76 games for the Brewers in 2006 before sustaining a concussion on July 5 that eventually ended his career. In all, in nine big league seasons, Koskie suited for 989 games – more than any other player from Manitoba – and ranks seventh all-time amongst Canadians in home runs (124) and on-base percentage (.367) and eighth in slugging percentage (.458). He also played more big league games at third base than any other Canadian and ranks first among Canuck third basemen in batting average, home runs, RBI and on-base percentage. He also competed for Canada in the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics. For his efforts, he was elected to the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame in 2011 and the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2013. During his career, Koskie was also involved with numerous charities and he continues to support fundraising activities for the Twins Community Fund. In 2001, he was the recipient of the Twins' Carl R. Pohlad Award, which is handed out by the club to a player, coach or manager for outstanding work in the community. Corey and Hoot talk about mental health, how an injury helped him make it to the major leagues, and what he learned from his parents and growing up on a farm. You also don't want to miss who Corey would choose to be at his dinner table if he could choose any 5 people. #MLB #MinnesotaTwins #Canada #HotCorner #3rdBase #MentalHealth #988 --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-sports-deli/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-sports-deli/support

This weekend will be exciting because we'll get to donate our first bunch of winter hats from our Hot Stove, Warm Welcome drive, as State Senator Jessica Ramos hosts a holiday lunch for newly-arrived families here in Queens. The drive continues, as we'll donate a hat for every hoodie we sell this month in our shop. Obviously, we wanted to get hats in time for this lunch, so we ordered some earlier in the month, and we'll do another order at the end of the month, when there will still be winter to go!By Jesse SpectorSome reads heading into the weekend…It's brutal to have lost both Mike Leach and Grant Wahl in the past week. Posthumous memorials at Channel 6 and from Grant's wife Céline Gounder are each things to read while holding the sadness, while happier memories can be found in Spencer Hall's 2011 boat outing with Leach, and Wahl's introduction of an Ohio teenager named LeBron James to the world.This isn't a read, but an interesting and deep explanation of the impact of Leach's Air Raid offense.I always get a kick out of being reminded that the English soccer club Derby County used to play at The Baseball Ground.As Twitter continues to burn down and the CEO dances about with open cans of gasoline, all are welcome on our Discord.Free buses for NYC? At my day job, we're deep into redesigning the bus network already. Go for it.And back here in Queens, I have been to the Boca Juniors restaurant and I'm glad it survived the past two years and now gets to be the center of Argentina fandom in the city. And glad that they got the shine here from Hell Gate.The Mets signed former Brewers catcher and 2021 All-Star Omar Narváez, which means that someone is leaving because that's too many catchers. In his major league debut, back in 2016, one of the White Sox pitchers Narváez caught was Tommy Kahnle, who's just returned to the Yankees. Kahnle appeared again in Narváez's next game, and then his third game was a Carlos Rodón start… and now Rodón is coming to the Yankees, too. Game number four for Narváez? He caught new Mets starter José Quintana.And then it continues. David Robertson, who made his major league debut at Shea Stadium… …got the save in Narváez's fifth career game, a Rodón start. It took nearly a month, until his eighth game, for Narváez to not catch someone who will be with a New York team next year, unless Chris Sale or Jacob Turner somehow winds up here.As Narváez and all those pitchers get ready to come to (or return to) the Big Apple, old friend Noah Syndergaard returned to Los Angeles, where he's set to become the fifth player in history to appear for the Mets, Angels, Phillies, and Dodgers. He'll join Dick Stuart, Dennis Cook, Dennis Springer, and Bobby Abreu in that oddball club, and be the first to take the New York-Anaheim-Philly-LA path to it.I hadn't realized that Stuart, the man best known for his awesome nickname, Dr. Strangeglove, even played for the Mets, let alone the Angels, Phillies, and Dodgers. I knew him as a Pirates slugger, part of the 1960 World Series team… and I may have known but forgotten that his best season was with the 1963 Red Sox, when he led the American League in total bases and runs batted in.After a less impressive, but still really good (.811 OPS, 33 homers) season in 1964, the Red Sox traded Stuart to the Phillies for Dennis Bennett, himself a future Met in 1967 when the Sox sent him here for Al Yates.And that's when Stuart began the Syndergaard speedrun, playing a replacement-level season with the 1965 Phillies. They traded him to the Mets in February of 1966 for Wayne Graham, Bobby Klaus, and Jimmie Schaffer.Stuart played 31 games as a Met, with one of his four homers coming off 1969 Met Don Cardwell… as well as one off his former Phillies teammate Chris Short. After the Mets released Stuart, he caught on with the Dodgers… and hit his first homer in L.A. off the very same Chris Short.Short was a really good pitcher, but not at the level of the last guy that Stuart tagged for a dinger with the Dodgers, Steve Carlton. After two years with the Taiyo Whales in Japan, where he hit a combined 49 homers, Stuart came back to the States and hit one last tater for the Angels, off Tommy John.In Stuart's rookie season, 1958, he homered off Don Drysdale, Warren Spahn, and Robin Roberts. He took Sandy Koufax deep five times, tied with Cardwell, Johnny Podres, and Stan Williams for his most against any pitcher.Taiyo Whales is a new team name for me… they're now the Yokohama DeNA BayStars, having moved from Kawasaki to Yokohama in 1978 and briefly being the Yokohama Taiyo Whales before doing a Tennessee Oilers kind of thing. They had a pretty cool song, if not Beatles level. (Hope you're enjoying We Can Pod It Out!)The Tennssee Oilers… also had a song.That one isn't just not Beatles level, it's not Shitty Beatles level.

By Jesse SpectorI'm doing some research that doesn't directly involve — at least not yet — Pro Football Hall of Famer Jimmy Conzelman, the last man to coach the Cardinals to an NFL championship, back when they were the Chicago Cardinals, in 1947. and player/coach (he missed the second half of the season as a player after hurting his knee in a win over the New York Yankees) for the 1928 champion Providence Steam Roller.The Steam Roller was Conzelman's last team as a player — he'd also been with the Detroit Panthers, Milwaukee Badgers, Rock Island Independents, and Decatur Staleys… after a college career in which he'd been part of the 1919 Rose Bowl champion Great Lakes Navy Bluejackets, 17-0 winners over the previously undefeated Mare Island Marines.George Halas was the star of that Rose Bowl for Great Lakes, and brought Conzelman with him to Decatur to join the NFL's first team. Conzelman ran for the only touchdown of the Staleys' game against Rock Island that inaugural season, and also threw two touchdown passes to Halas himself in a November game against the Hammond Pros.All of that is fantastically interesting on its own and a reminder of how much football has changed in a century, but it's a diversion from the tangent that I was already on, which is finding out how Conzelman's coaching career ended.Conzelman went 8-22-3 with the Cardinals from 1940-42, and resigned to go to St. Louis — little knowing that the football team would eventually do the same — to work as the public relations director for the St. Louis Browns, the baseball team.Here's how the Chicago Tribune described Conzelman when he headed southwest in 1943:Conzelman attended Washington university, St. Louis, where he later coached, and during World War I, he was a member of the famous Great Lakes eleven. Conzelman is one of the most versatile personalities in the field of sports. In addition to his football activities he has been a boxer, newspaper publisher, writer, salesman, composer, actor, and radio commentator. He is an accomplished orator.Conzelman worked for the Browns for two years, and those two years included their only American League pennant before heading to Baltimore and becoming the Orioles. And then he went back to coach the Cardinals again, won the 1947 NFL title, got to the 1948 NFL championship game… and quit to work in advertising.And also act alongside Gretchen Wyler in a St. Louis production of Damn Yankees, before Wyler had the role on Broadway (she succeeded Gwen Verdon).That picture ran in Sports Illustrated's 1961 football issue, itself a trove worth diving back into another day. Gerald Holland's piece on Conzelman is as interesting as the subject himself, and then there's this succinct preview of University of Idaho football:The Vandals went 2-7, led to an improvement over the previous season's 1-8 by tight end Reggie Carolan, a future all-star with the Chargers and AFL champion with San Diego and Kansas City (on the team that lost Super Bowl I). Reggie's son, Brett Carolan, played at Washington State and won Super Bowl XXIX as a rookie on the 49ers.The aggregate score of those seven Idaho losses (to Oregon, Oregon State, Washington State, Army, Utah State, Pacific, and Arizona) was 319-22. But they got a 27-18 home win over San Jose State, and finished the season in style with a 16-14 win over Montana to take the Little Brown Stein… which, this year, Idaho recaptured for the first time since 1999.This kind of journey down a rabbit hole might seem like hardcore fandom, but I find it to be quite different, and in fact one of the paths that has brought me to easier accept being a casual fan (for the most part, but very much for football) — all of the teams out there have their own stories, with their own people, their own traditions, and their own fanbases. There's always going to be a winner and a loser (or a tie, in our more refined sports), and the sports experience is richer if we take it all in. The casual experience is about not letting it get you so down when your favorite team loses.Is it perfect? Definitely not. We still haven't recorded a mainline Willets Pod episode since Addy and I took in the Emma Stone Game, and while part of that is about adults having a hard time scheduling things, part of it is definitely about us having needed some time to recover as fans. (We'll be back soon, promise.)I'm glad, though, to see what I feel is a healthier approach to sports, starting to come around… or at least to welcome Bomani Jones to the party.For the record, I'm still not off the Knicks “narcotic,” as Bomani terms his former Falcons fandom. I can keep it under control most of the time, but I don't think I'm ever shaking it, not when writing this very sentence sent me looking for Zion Williamson's contract status once again (poison pill on any trades until July 1, 2023 when… sign and trade???) and, well, yeah.I enjoy year-end music lists because it's a great way to come across stuff that isn't in my wheelhouse, but I might enjoy… and thanks to the Internet, I can find out really quickly (unlike when I bought a Pavement CD in 1997 based on a magazine review).So, here's our friend Michele Catalano's year in music, which unlike Pavement and Rolling Stone, I will not hold against anyone for decades to come if any of it isn't my bag……and here's an opportunity to revisit Pavement.Rolling Stone wrote…Take “Stereo,” the first track on Corners and perhaps the most accessible song Pavement have made since their (modest) hit, 1994's “Cut Your Hair.” “Stereo” is a dynamic, almost AOR statement, and it builds to the band's loudest, cleanest crescendo ever.To me, it sounds like a mashup of Talking Heads and Weezer that manages to capture nothing of what I like about either, so I guess some things don't change in 25 years. Although we also have the Knicks for that. This is a public episode. If you'd like to discuss this with other subscribers or get access to bonus episodes, visit willetspen.substack.com/subscribe

It's the season of hope and the Chicago White Sox are asking fans to be patient as the dust settles. The White Sox have yet to be terribly active at all during this off-season and the MLB Winter Meetings did not produce the excitement Sox fans hoped for. The organization seems to be content on waiting until the perfect deal is laid before them. It sounds like the White Sox are still focused on operating via the trade to get better but there needs to be other things to happen throughout the rest of MLB before the Sox get what they need. Are the White Sox still in their competitive window? If they are, they sure do not act like it. Rick Hahn and the front office are hopeful players bounce back to accustomed levels and stay healthy. Does that strategy separate you from the other American League teams? Also, Pedro Grifol spoke to the media in San Diego and seems to be excited that White Sox players are participating in the World Baseball Classic. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Uh, then we're also going to discuss how he allegedly has ties to one of the top Valencia designers coming on the backs of the controversy surrounding children and the pictures that, you know, we touched on that for a little bit last time. So we will talk about that correlation here. Then we are going to jump into how a judge dismissed the lawsuit over Jamal Khashoggi murder. After specifically the Biden administration backed his immunity, uh, for the Saudi Crown Prince. Uh, then we will go into all things Twitter gait. Now, if you have not heard, and you may not have at this point, uh, Twitter gate is the release of files from Elon Musk outlining kind of what happened during the election cycle with Hunter Biden's laptop. If you recall, there was tons of censorship, tons of warnings, a whole bunch of shenanigans going on during the elections, uh, between Donald Trump and President Biden. Uh, so we will jump into all that, see what they had to say, see what the implications of that are. Uh, we will also talk a bit about, uh, what Elon Musk has talked about recently. Uh, he's currently being investigated over some stuff, uh, as a result of this Twitter gate. Some people. As a kind of pushback from the federal government for doing so. And he also said that he wanted to rightfully punch Kanye West in the mouth, , which we will talk about also.

Thank you for listening and let's jump into it. Welcome to Red Pill Revolution. My name is Austin Adams. Red Pill Revolution started out with me realizing everything that I knew, everything that I believed, everything I interpret about my life is through the lens of the information I was spoonfed as a child. Religion, politics, history, conspiracies, Hollywood medicine, money, food, all of it. Everything we know was tactfully written to influence your decisions and your view on reality by those in power. I'm on a mission, a mission to retrain and reeducate myself to find the true reality of what is behind that curtain. And I'm taking your ass with me. Welcome to the Revolution, Ry. Let's jump into it. And I did say that we would talk about this first. So , I will do it and I should probably get it out of the way. Uh, if you recall, I have put out some videos. I have talked in depth about what was going on with Kanye West. So let's address this situation. Kanye West has since gone off the rails. I have not listened to the full Alex Jones interview, but there was about 15 minutes of highlights that I will save you from. Uh, but I will go listen to the full thing to see and get my real thoughts on this. But from the clips that I listen to and the context, which again, I don't have the full context of the things that he said, but it sounds a lot like. What people were accusing Kanye West of is true. Now, originally, originally, what Kanye West did was if you were not up to date on this situation, Kanye West was calling out industry elites. He was calling out specifically the owners of entertainment companies that own all of the athletes contracts, all of the musicians contracts, all of the, uh, famous people that you know, models all of them. And, and he was calling them out for giving unfair business practices and doing shady business deals. Now he was also calling them out for making him look crazy and, and all of this stuff too. Now, if you have any background on this, you know that there's definitely some truth to these things, right? You understand that there are elite individuals and, and some people hate the word elite, but it's the word that we got, sorry guys. Elite individuals, billionaires, trillionaires around the world who are owners of these large companies and, and they pedal influence socially and make people look terrible. They, you know, potentially Epstein people, all of that type of crazy stuff. So Kanye West came out and, and made a, a big huge podcast interview rounds with all of the larger podcasts that are out there, and he just stopped with info war. With Alex Jones. Now, I, I don't know why he thought Infowars was the place to do this, but he went wild on Infowars. He literally, word for word, said that he loves Hitler. And you, you saw Alex Jones try to like, backpedal him and say like, well, you don't love Hitler. You love the, because I guess they were talking about, you know, the, uh, if you didn't know that the Nazi uniforms were created by Hugo Boss. Interesting. Right? Uh, They were talking about that and Alex Jones go, well, you didn't love that. You loved their fashion. Right? You don't love Adolph Hitler. You love, you know, what, what their fashion was. And he goes, no, there's a lot of things about Nazis that I like. . He, he, I think even at one point he said, I love Nazis. Like all of the wrong things that you say in his position when people were already calling you antisemitic for, specifically pointing to the Jewish Cerian mafia out there that is allegedly controlling news media, controlling entertainment industries and, and calling people to at least pointing it out and trying to raise awareness surrounding what's happening here. And you know, in the same way that you talk about the Italian mafia, and you're not talking about Italian people, there's something to be said that you can speak about a group as an organiz. Due to their ties to one another, and have it not be specifically in a negative connotation about whatever it is that ties to them together. Right? You can have an organization like the Italian Mafia and say, I hate the Italian Mafia. I don't like what they stand for. They kill people. They're terrible people. The Italian Mafia is just a horrible, horrible organization. And then people come in and start going, oh, you're racist against Italians. It's like, no, I'm talking about the ones who kill people. And they just so happen to have. Ties personally to each other. That is the result of Lineage. And in this case it's lineage slash religion as Judaism is, uh, so, and Jewish individuals. So, so that's kind of the differentiation that I find myself in when we're talking about these things. There are absolutely an overwhelming majority of people who own entertainment industries and, and are a part of that elitist class who, who just so happen to be Jewish now. That's nothing against the Jewish race or Jewish class or religion or, uh, lineage. Nothing at all against that. They're just so happens to be that tie and when you call on that tie, not on the things that are actually related to that religion or lineage. Right? That that should not be an issue. So if you talk about the Italian mafia, the Italian mafia is bad. You talk about Jewish, uh, the, the, the Jewish Cerian Mafia, whatever, that some people coin the term, right? All of the people who have, you know, passed down the, the, uh, conspiracy bloodline type things, the George Soros is the Rockefellers, the, you know, go, the list goes on and on. But they all have some sort of ties and the portion of them just so happened to be Jewish, and that was what it seemed to be that what Kanye West was alluding to originally. Now, he went off the rails and just started spewing what is actually antisemitism to say that you support Nazis to say that you like Adolph Hitler in, in any way, shape or form. And like I said in the original one, there's nothing you can do to defend that, right? There's absolutely nothing right now. You can, I, I, I feel like in the same way that you can call it the Italian mafia, Not because they're Italian, but because they're a mafia . It's like where it really comes into play. But that's my 2 cents now. We'll jump into that more when we talk about Elon Musk wanting to punch Kanye in the face. But I did just wanna get outta that. The way I don't support Kanye West in this sense, I don't agree with him on that at all. I think what he said was obviously horrible and terrible and shouldn't be repeated. And in a world where we're only what one and a half generations removed from World War ii, barely one generation removed from World War ii, this is not what we want to spread right now. We should absolutely call out people who are disproportionately negatively affecting culture in society and, you know, social engineering in the, in the worst ways, which is obviously a very real thing in these elitist individual trillion, billion. But once you start calling an entire group based on their religion, ethnicity, lineage, that's obviously not a good thing. Don't do that. Right. So not on the Kanye, Kanye Western, uh, I, I jumped off. Um, but I do still agree with some of the things that he was calling out as far as the, uh, you know, entertainment industry preying on, you know, and then specifically, you know, was what he was saying was black individuals and, and people who are minorities and putting them into terrible contractual relationships, controlling the media, calling people crazy and making it real because they own every outlet that you could do it on. Right. Anyways, I digress. Let's move on to the next topic here, which is going to be that the president of Ukraine, president Zelensky, was named Times person of the year. You heard that right? President Zelensky was named Person's Time. Person's time of the Year, times person of the year. And this is just, I mean, I don't even know what to say. So this article comes from Forbes, . There's probably a couple other people who maybe deserve it. Now, obviously, he's dealing with a tremendous amount of pressure, a tremendous amount of stress, and in the public eye has handled it fairly well. Now, there's been tons of propaganda surrounding zelensky and the things that he said like, I don't need a ride. I need ammo. It's like, you know that maybe that didn't happen. This according to some sources, but let's read on this right here. Ukrainian President Voir Zelensky, was named Times person of the year for 2022 on Wednesday in recognition of his time as Ukrainians leader during Russia's invasion, as Ukrainian forces doubt their deepest attack on Russian soil this week. It talks about the key facts are the magazine emphasizes Zelensky decision to stay in Kiev at the start of Russia's invasion in February, noting how the former comedian became an immediate rallying cry for his country, at least. They call him what he is.  A comedian, uh, Zelensky has held nightly speeches through social media and has continued to speak with the media, including his involvement during a recent New York Time summit, Aaron Judge who broke the single season American League record for home runs while winning the League's MVP award for the New York Yankees was named Athlete of the Year and timed named Black Pink, the Entertainer of the Year. Not even sure who that person is. Hmm. Right. Here's a quote that they call out here, which is that already the next generation of Ukrainians, like Zelensky own son, were learning about the tools of war. Instead of planning for prosperity, the magazine wrote about Zelensky wartime leadership. That is the pattern the president aims to disrupt, and his plans rely more than, relies more on weapons, relies on more than weapons, sorry. All right. Now, uh, this says key background talking about Adolph Hitler. Uh, the time person of the year categorically has historically been associated with people who have been most influential during this year, ranging from previous title holders like Greta Thornberg and Pope Francis, two, Vladimir Putin and Adolph Hitler. Thank you Forbes for calling it as it is. Just because you get Times person of the year does not mean that you are an incredible individual. As a reminder, a Dolf, Hitler and Vladimir Putin himself have both been called persons. F times person of the year. So both Putin and Hitler have been Times person of the year. So take this with a grain of salt is he Times person of the year. Again, he's dealt with tremendous amounts of stress and, and in the public eye he's dealt with it well. There is such a reminder that should be made as he's an actor comedian to begin with, who loves to dance in leather pants. But again, I can't, I can't imagine the amount of stress on these people. So, you know, take my commentary for what it is, but I just find it comical that a literal comedian and actor turned president turned puppet for NATO is Times person of the year. Like the, I really am not immediately coming up with answers as to who this should have been, , um, but maybe, maybe Elon Musk, if he's never been it, I, I would say he's probably had a tremendous impact, um, maybe even more so than Zelensky being a puppet for nato. And, uh, You know, coming up with comedic gold dancing videos in leather pants. Anyways, all right, so the next thing is going to be that we're gonna discuss here is going to be that Zelensky tapped top Valencia designer to oversee charity for Ukrainian refugees. So the same guy who got called Times person of the year was calling on a top Valencia designer to oversee the charity for Ukrainian refugees. You know, the Valencia that was actively engaging in endorsing pedophilia was the one that the president of Ukraine called on to head charities for Ukrainian refugees. You literally cannot make that up. That is a crazy correlation. Causation, who knows? But correlation nonetheless, that Zelensky is working with a top Balenciaga designer. Especially when we're talking about the recent news and all of the things that just came out about Valencia with their satanic pedophilia based ad campaigns all over. Right. And we're finding it that I'm, one thing I'm really happy about with the Valencia thing, and I guess happy isn't the right word, but it, but it, it's relieving to know that these things are still in the public conversation. They're still being, uh, pushed towards good. Right? Because the more people that wake up to this stuff, the more that it becomes a conspiracy theorist that, that these things are going on, uh, or a conspiracy theory that these things are going on, the more that it gets a negative light shut on it. But what the negative light should be shut on is Valencia not the people calling them out for doing, for endorsing pedophilia. The, the, the light should be shed on Zelensky for paying a topia designer to oversee a charity, which is very likely for children, refugees in Ukraine. Probably not the person that you would want to do that with. Uh, so let's read this real quick and see what it has to say. It says, UK Ukraine. Ukrainian President, Zelensky over the summer had recruited top fashion brand, Valencia's creative director to oversee a charity supporting Ukrainian refugees, United 24, which builds itself as a charity, aimed at rebuilding Ukraine and helping refugees claimed in July that Valencia's artistic director, DEMA, who only goes by his first name, would become the organization's ambassador, Demna artistic director for Valencia, selected as ambassador for United 24. He will be exclusively dedicated to rebuild Ukraine, direction for helping refugees. The charity tweeted, which included a link to its website. Now, if I call re, if I recall correctly, Demna was in a big piece of this all, a big piece of it. Now it goes on to say that the humanitarian rebuild Ukrainian direction focuses exclusively on the renovation of critical infrastructure facilities such as roads, bridges, hospitals, and schools to enable refugees to come back to their homes and restart their lives. This came before Valencia was recently embroiled in a scandal over its disturbing ad campaigns, overseen by Denmark, specifically featuring children holding teddy bears in BDSM outfits in a hidden Supreme Court document over to turning a child pornography law. So Zelensky literally hired the person who is the head of directing the Valencia campaigns or surrounding pedophilia to run a refugee program out of Ukraine. There's no way that that's not in some way, shape, or form tied the fact that that comes up and immediately this becomes a conversation. There's no way these things don't have at least a, a, a thin string of yarn connecting them. Says Valencia has since scrubbed its social media presence before issuing numerous apologies after weeks of silence. Demos last, uh, week issued an apology for incorporating a child in BDSM and a cult themed Valencia, a campaign that erupted into a full fledged scandal that culminated with former fans burning Valencia merchandise in protests of its pedophilia. Themes. Themes. This was his response. I want to personally apologize for the wrong artistic choice of concept for the gifting campaign with the kids. And I take my responsibility. It was inappropriate to have kids promote objects that had nothing to do with them. The 41 year old wrote on Instagram, I apologize to anyone offended by the visuals in Balenciaga has guaranteed that adequate measures will be taken not only to avoid similar mistakes in the future. Geez, I hope so. But also to take accountability in protecting child welfare in every way we. Including likely abducting Ukrainian refugees? Oh, allegedly. Speaking of a cultism, in some bizarre new iteration of asymmetric warfare, Ukrainian's Ministry of Defense announced Monday I had recruited actual witches to cast hexes and curses on Russian soldiers. What, what , okay, let's read that one. That's interesting. It says, notably, Ukraine has also been leveraging the openly neo-Nazi as of battalion who's been captured on video conducting pagan blood and soil rituals. What's with Ukraine's ties to the ult? The creation of the charity is curious given, uh, Ukraine's already received tens of billions of dollars from US taxpayers to prop up its war against Russia and launder money Back to Democratic campaigns. Where did all that money go? Uh, and here's the Instagram post that's posted by the defense of Ukraine, which is defense you at on Twitter. It says, render unto God that which belongs to God, and unto the enemy that witches of the enemy beware enemy, you'll get what the witch wants. Volunteers dressed as witches, sending love to our soldiers in the opposite of our enemy, the opposite to our enemy. Wow. What a interesting choice to post on your website. Okay. That's pretty wild. Now, there is like all of the occultism that's going on, all of the, the, the subtweeting of Satanic rituals and, and all of the elitist propaganda that's coming out, trying to portray people who call this out conspiracy theorists and all of this stuff. It's so unbelievable because of how many times it's been rubbed in our face and how many times it's been proven correct. Right. You look at Epstein, you look at Valencia, you look at all of these situations, all of the, the, the Harvey Weinsteins, the, the Bill Clinton, uh, logs to the White House with Epstein there, all of the ties, all of them. And, and it's literally just shoved in your face. And if you deny that there's a, a theme amongst ultra billionaire, rich, elite social groups and sat. Rituals and pedophilia at this point. You are just so naive. It's unbelievable, and you should likely do a lot of research into it because this is something that, while it's easier not to pay attention to, it's easier to not have to formulate an opinion and talk about consistently. It's not helpful to ignore because what if that was your child, right? What? What if that was your child? Even just talk about the Balenciaga campaign. Even if that was just your child in that photograph, your child now for the rest of their life, the rest of their life is now going to at least personally identify with that being that person that was in that, or other people are gonna notice who they are, right? And I hope those parents of the children in the Balenciaga campaigns sue the absolute. Hell outta Valencia and get as much money as possible for positioning their children in the way that they're taken advantage of for these sexualized Satanic ad campaigns. So who would've thought that Zelensky would've hired the same person that was in charge of the Valencia ad campaigns to run a refugee charity, which involved children? That just seems like the literal, worst idea in the world. And, and again, it just talks about the strings that are tied between everything that is going on and these very high up societal, political things that are going on, and it should terrify you. So the next thing, now this, what we're about to discuss is about, uh, Jamal Khashoggi. Now, if you do not know about the situation, it is a atrocity. The man was a journalist. Um, Jamal Khashoggi was a journalist from, uh, I believe Saudi Arabia. Let me go ahead and read it through it here. Um, but I, but I watched this whole documentary on what happened here and what actually occurred. And the reality of it is, is, again, just, just horrifying. So let's, let's actually listen to this. Let's, there's a, a little trailer from the actual movie that I have up here that should explain some of this for you here. So here we. My name is Ha Genius. I am addressing you as a victim. A title forced on me After the brutal murder of my Jamal Jamal Khai, prominent Saudi journalist in Washington Post columnist, has gone missing. After visiting his country's consulate in Istan, he was last entering Saudi Arabia's consulate, taking paperwork to marry his fiance. His fiance saw him go in at 1:00 PM and was still waiting for him at 1:00 AM. Moha, tell me what happened to Mr. Khashoggi Saudi Arabia. Now suddenly there's admitting that Haggi did die. Die Inside that building, Jamal K he's saying that he was killed and, and greeted me. As if I shut the king. We knew that they would try to sweep the whole thing under direct. Is it true that Turkish intelligence obtained audio recordings to show he's murder? I know why Jamal was killed. It's because of me. And here, just so I can read it to you, it says someone may have easily watched everything that went on. So they're talking about there being cameras inside of the building in which he was the consulate in which he was murdered. We've been given orders. He saved some, particularly down in peace of the puzzle, like Saudi body. Double Jamal filled the whole country was against him of this another truth. I said, the best solution is create our own priority. The king firmly denied any knowledge of it. It could have been rogue killers. Who knows? I just received this. Be careful. Move from city to another one and there's a team is going to kill you soon. It's anonymous. He has to be killed in a way that will send message to everyone else because if you kill Jamal is Pepper. Who else you cannot kill? You can't kill everyone. All right, so there's the trailer coming from that movie I highly recommend. You should see it. It's called The Dissident, and I believe I watched it on one of the mainstreaming platforms. So it's called The Dissident, and you should absolutely watch it. It it gives you some really crazy insight to this situation. He was basically went into this consulate and he, he was a high, um, called out the government a lot, fairly consistently for what was going on. I believe I even did a bit of a podcast episode on it. Uh, so I would definitely recommend going back and seeing him when that it was, but The Dissident was a tremendous documentary that outlined this very well, and he went into the consulate and was basically from the evidence that they gathered in this documentary, was beheaded and murdered in front of some type of like webcam where the crown princes. Was allegedly giving orders on what to do and how to kill him. And so this is just to preempt what happened here, because what ended up happening this week, yesterday, I believe, yeah, yesterday, was that the Biden administration backed immunity for Muhammad bin Solomon, who's the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. So the president of the United States called on this man the Crown Prince of Mohamed bin Solomon to gain immunity for doing this. And it came true. A judge dismissed a suit against in connection to Jamal Khashoggi death. The suit was filed by Khashoggi fiance who accused MBS of ordering his death to silence him. Khashoggi was murdered after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October of 2018. The US federal judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit against, uh, Saudi Crown Prince, uh, Mohammad bin Solomon over the brutal murder of Washington Post journalist and Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi. The decision came just weeks after the Biden administration contended with the Saudi ruler, often referred to as MBS should be granted immunity. Judge John Bates, in opinion, said that despite the court's uneasiness and the credible allegations of his involvement in Khashoggi, killing the US has informed the court that he is immune. So MBS is therefore entitled to head of state immunity. Wow. So you can literally get immunity from murdering somebody on outside consulate territory for being a part of a political party in a different country. Ever heard of Crimes against You, man? I mean, this is just ho like what kind of precedence does this set for? And this was a New York, what was it? A New York, um, what was, where was he affiliation? I just said it. New York Times or, or, uh, New York Post. The New York Post journalist. So a, a very well known Washington Post journalist. Um, sorry. And he was murdered horrifically in a consulate and we're just gonna do nothing and even throw out the case based on the, a Biden administration saying that he should not be charged with this. Khashoggi disappeared after visiting the Saudi Consulate in this damn bull in 2018 to obtain documents related to his upcoming marriage. It was later revealed that a group of Saudi Abs agents ambushed him inside the consulate, strangling him before dismembering and disposing of his body. The following month, the CIA concluded that MBS ordered Khashoggi killing. So the CIA literally came out and said that he did this. And then the Biden administration came out and said, nah, we don't care. He's immune. You can literally be head and murder people in any consulate you want, as long as you have enough money in the bank or enough power. Says that a declassified intelligence report released that by the Biden administration last year explicitly implicated MBS and Khashoggi killing. We assessed that Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Solomon approved in operation in Istanbul Turkey to capture or kill Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi MBS has denied that he ordered the, uh, Khashoggi killing. The lawsuit was filed two years after Khashoggi death by his fiance, Hadis Singes, and accused MBS of ordering the Saudi journalist's death in order to silence him. So imagine being her, you literally have a husband who speaks up and speaks out against these horrific acts by the Saudi princes, by, by the Saudi government. He goes into a consulate and is literally murdered, beheaded, horrifically, strangled to death. And then the CIA comes out and says that he, the mbs, the crown or the Saudi crown Prince was at fault for this. The CIA said that. And then Biden then grants him immunity. Imagine being that woman and imagine feeling like the whole world is against you. Cause what stops them from just murdering her? Now why would they not do that if they're immune from everything that can go on and every, uh, uh, outcome that, that can be? Why would you not just, you know, murder all of your, your political opponents? What, what type of precedent does this set? Cuz that, that's, that's a terrifying thought. Let's see if there's anything else in here. Um, she tweeted, we thought maybe there would be a light to justice from the usa. Jamal died again today. She said, wow. So, uh, president Biden has faced widespread backlash over his approach to US Saudi relations on the campaign trail. Biden pledged to make the oil rich kingdom a pariah over Khashoggi murder. When he came into office, Biden vowed to recalibrate the relationship between Washington and rta, including by ending US support for the Saudi Lake Coalition. The devastating Yemen war MBS is considered the architect of the war, which has for fostered what's been described as the world's worst humanitarian crisis. Hmm, interesting. Wow. It literally got away with murder in this case, and it was because of Biden's immunity. So now there's what we got on that front. Now we're going to move into the Twitter files, but before I do that, what I'm gonna do first is ask that you please. Hit that subscribe button.

And I would appreciate it so much. All right. Put a lot of work into this and I appreciate your support more than, you know. It really helps to keep me going, so, alright, let's move on. The next thing that we're going to be discussing here is going to be the Twitter files. So this is being, uh, being, this has been called Twitter gate and it is essentially, uh, Elon Musk has come out and released the files, all of the internal documents and communications surrounding Hunter Biden's laptop. Again, if you recall the Washington Post, speaking about the Washington Post released information and released all of the files surrounding Hunter Biden's laptop, calling on the corruption, calling on the weird sexual escapades drug conversations, the, uh, business dealings happening in Ukraine of all places. Who would've thought, uh, in all of these other things that were going on, and China and all of them. So they released that information. Twitter went ahead, and as soon as this started to spread like wildfire, Twitter, shut it down. They made sure that nobody was going to be able to see these, these types of, uh, conversations. They tried to, they literally, like, I'm pretty sure they, they suspended the Washington Post for posting it. It was all under the guise of hacked materials. Even though the laptop was legally obtained, nobody's ever been arrested. Nobody hacked it at all. It was owned by the computer repair shop that Hunter Biden dropped his laptop off that. And so there was all this internal dialogue, all of these internal, you know, emails and things that were going across, uh, different departments within Twitter and Elon released it all, released it all. And there were some really, really interesting things that happened within these conversations. Some things that we will go over and we'll go basically step by step, line by line on every single tweet, um, and just kind of see if there's anything that we see. So this was a released by Matt Taibi, which is at M T A I B B I on Twitter. And Matt Taibi is one of the favorite journalists of many, many people today. He's an independent journalist who has a sub stack, uh, that has a lot of good UpToDate materials, is one of the places where I like to get a lot of my news from. He's a tremendous journalist and was trusted by Elon Musk to release these in a way that was, uh, and he is probably one of the most trusted known journalists today, so it was very smart of them to do that. So it starts by saying thread. Number one, the Twitter files. And I'm going to go ahead and sip this. What is it? Um, French Toast, I forget. It's by founders, uh, French Toast Bastard by Founders. It's a vanilla cinnamon maple beer, which tastes like cinnamon Toast Crunch. It's delicious. So if you see it around you, it's pretty good. Try it out and, oh, I didn't even take a sip. Here we go. Cheers to you. All right, so number one, the thread says the Twitter files, and it just goes line by line. And he goes kind of like sentence by sentence on this. So he says, what you're about to read is the first installment in a series based upon thousands of internal documents obtained by sources at Twitter, the Twitter files tell an incredible story from inside one of the world's largest and most influential social media platforms. It is a Frankenstein tale of a human built mechanism grown out of the control of its designer. Twitter and its conception was a brilliant tool for enabling instant mass communication, making a true, real time global conversation possible for the first time. In an early conception, Twitter was more Twitter, more than lived up to its mission statement, giving people the power to create and share ideas and information instantly without barriers. As time progressed, however, the company was slowly forced to add these barriers. Some of the first tools for controlling speech were designed to combat the likes of spam and financial fraudsters. Slowly over time, Twitter staff and executives began to find more and more uses for these tools. Outsiders began petitioning the company to manipulate speech as well, first a little then more often than constantly. By 2020, requests from connected actors to delete tweets were routine. One executive would write to another. More to review from the Biden team. The reply would come back handled. So what this is showing here is an email coming from the Biden administration calling on spec, specific tweets, specific tweets for them to be taken down and not handled, not, we've looked into this, not we're gonna check it out and see if it violates our guidelines handled. Now, that's an important distinction in the way that we're looking at this, because handled means I did your bidding, not, I did what was under our guidelines. And I think that's an important call out to make here, is that it's not about them following their own guidelines. Now, I think that in almost every situation, besides maybe the one where Kanye is gonna get punched in the face by Elon. Elon, metaphorically for posting a swastika, which we'll talk about next. Almost all free speech should be allowed in almost all settings, right? And, and even at swastika, you just show that you're a piece of shit by posting it. So maybe people should know that you're a piece of shit, not that, you know, maybe we shouldn't hide your stupidity from everyone. Maybe we should show everybody how dumb you are by allowing it to be up there. But that's a separate conversation. So, um, handled is an important term, not we're gonna look into this, not we're gonna check it out, no handled. We did it, we did it for you because you sent it to us. Now it goes on to say the celebrities and unknowns alike could be removed or reviewed at the behest of a political party. Now this email is, uh, starts off by saying, I grabbed the first one under si deferred to safety on the high profile. Second one, the high profile, second one being real. James Woods, the first one being Stephan Luan. Um, but what that's saying is it wasn't just regular everyday people, it was celebrities too. It goes on to say that both parties had access to these tools. For instance, in 2020 requests from both the Trump White House and the Biden campaign were received and honored. However, the system wasn't balanced. It was based on contacts. Because Twitter was and is overwhelmingly staffed by people of one political orientation. There were more channels, more ways to complain open to the left than the right, and it shows that 99.7% of all contributions to political parties within this company went to the Democratic Party, which is no surprise with it being in Silicon Valley. Then it goes on to say the resulting slant in content moderation decisions is visible through the documents that you were about to read. However, it's also the assessment of multiple current and former high level executives. Now he goes on to say that the Twitter file is part one. How and why Twitter blocked the Hunter Biden laptop story. It says On October 14th, 2020, the New York Post published, gosh, I got it mixed up again. It was the, I thought it was the was. It was the New York Post, not the Washington Post that did it published Biden Secret emails and the expose based on the contents of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop. Twitter took extraordinary steps to suppress the story, removing links and posting warnings that it may be unsafe. They then even blocked its transmission via direct message. A tool here to reserved for extreme cases such as child pornography, white House spokesperson, Kayley Mc McNay.  Was locked out of her account for tweeting about the story. Prompting a furious letter from Trump campaign staffer Mike Hahn, who see it to at least pretend to care for the next 20. So this email is from one of the heads of the Trump campaign and says Kaylee McNaney has been locked out from her account for simply talking about the New York Post story. All she did was cite the story on firsthand reporting that has been reported by other outlets and not disputed by the Biden campaign. I didn't answer immediately on when and how she will be unblocked. I also don't appreciate how anybody on this team called me regarding the news, how nobody on the team called me regarding this news that you'll be censoring news articles. Like I said, at least pretend to care for the next 20 days. This led to public policy executive Carolyn Strom to send out a polite WTF query. Several employees noted that there was tension between the comms and policy teams who had little less control over moderation and the safety and trust teams. And the email there said, hi team. Are you able to take a look closer here? Thank you. STRs note returned the answer that the laptop story had been removed for violations of the company's hack materials policy. And that's kind of the thing that you see even in these. Emails that they, they knew it was bullshit. They knew the hacked material stuff was bullshit. They didn't, they knew it wasn't gonna stick. They even talked about it. And we'll look at that here in just a second. But they talked about how is this even something that we can legally stand by when? And if it comes to that, because they knew that it was bs. And so they said, oh, it's about the hack materials policy, even though they had no reason to believe that it was hacked materials at all. And here's the next one, says, although several sources recalling hearing about a general warning from federal law enforcement that summer about possible foreign hacks, there's no evidence that I've seen of any government involvement in the laptop story. In fact, that might have been the problem. Now, what is a, what a they're kind of, Matt is discussing here is the fact that CEO of mea, mark Zuckerberg went on Joe Rogan and said that the FBI specifically called on him to. Keep an eye out for Russian disinformation specifically about the Hunter Biden laptop story, if I'm recalling correctly. And so there was a lot of backlash surrounding that. Probably not nearly enough as there should be about the FBI weaponizing its political ties and corporate ties to help sway the election. But nonetheless, they did it. And so this goes on to say, although several sources were called hearing about a general warning, right? Then we just read that the decision was made by the highest levels of the company, but without the knowledge of CEO Jack Dorsey, but with former legal head of or former head of Legal Policy and trust, Vijaya Gad playing a key role. Now also, if you recall, Vijaya went onto Joe Rogan with. Or I'm with Jack Dorsey. Jack Dorsey went on Joe Rogan, but brought a, the head of legal of his team to discuss this all because she was the one that made these decisions. Right. And everybody's kind of pointed the finger at Jack Dorsey, but a lot of people have come to Jack Dorsey's defense. Apparently a lot of this Jack Dorsey didn't know anything about, which becomes a bigger issue when you're, you know, a large corporation controlling the flow of information and conversation surrounding the whole world, but specifically from the standpoint of one political ideology in one country. Right? That seems to be a big issue here, especially when it comes to the tech world. The tech world is overwhelmed by liberal ideology and not just like your buddy who is a supporter of, uh, democratic belief systems. Uh, the healthcare system and abortion, not just like your but but far left individuals in one of the most liberal places in the world. A an extremist ideology in many senses. Just as much as there is an extremist ideology on the very far. Right. Right. So it's like, I wouldn't want either of those sides to control the political conversations that are happening or even the regular conversations because they're going to want to skew it in the way that benefits their ideology. And that's not a good thing for humanity. There should always be checks and balances, right? There's literally nothing good about the two party system. But if I had to say something good about it is that it balances each other right there. There, there's a checks and balances in the way that half of the country agrees with this, and half of the country agrees with that. And so maybe decisions aren't made as hastily and as once it comes to extreme ideology, you're gonna have a lot of pushback from at least half of the. Right. So anyways, it goes on to say that, uh, quote, they just freelanced it is how one former employee characterized the decision hacking was this excuse. But within a few hours, pretty much everyone realized that that wasn't going to hold, but no one had the guts to reverse it. You can see the confusion in the following length, the exchange, which ends up including GAD and former Trust and Safety Chief UL Roth Comms Official. Trent Kennedy writes, I'm struggling to understand the policy basis for marking this as unsafe. So he goes into and is a little irritated by this. So let's read the whole thing and it says Trent and Kennedy. I'm struggling to understand the policy basis for marking this unsafe. And I think the best explainability argument for this externally would be that we're waiting to understand if the story is the result of hack materials. We'll face hard questions on this if we don't have some kind of solid reasoning for marking the link Unsafe. Yeah, as you should, right? So, Next, the one says, by this point, everyone knew that this was fucked, says one former employee, quote . But the response was essentially to air on the side of continuing to air. Um, so here it says, this is the email from UL Roth, the policy basis attack materials. Though as discussed, this is an emerging situation where the facts remained unclear. Given the severe risks here in lessons of 2016, we're airing on the side of including a warning in preventing this content from being amplified. Uh, VJA, what is the warning that will come up? You? Well, when you click the link, you'll see the generic unsafe URL message. Not ideal, but it's the one thing that we have. And then Ian said, whatever we do in the coms, this will become a bias claim for Jack pre-hearing immediately. Let's make it clear we're proactively be cautiously interpret, interpreting this through the lens of our hacked materials policy, and allowing the link with the warning and significant reduction of spread. Uh, then this is where the really big question comes up and it comes from the VP of Global Comms and he says to Ian's point, can we truthfully claim that this is a part of the policy as a part of our approach to addressing potentially hacked materials? We are limiting visibility of related stories on Twitter while our investigation is ongoing. Can we actually do this? Like, are we gonna get, is this legal grounds that we don't wanna find ourselves in? Right. And it goes on to say to which former Deputy general counsel, Jim Bak, again, seems to advise staying the, uh, non course because caution is warranted. If fundamental problem with the tech community in content moderation. Many people in charge of speech know care little about speech and have been told, or have been, have to be told the basics by outsiders. And that was coming from Matt Tay. Uh, yeah. It goes on to talk about the Bill of Rights. Somebody calls out, um, that they were worried about, that kind tries to reroute the conversation to the First Amendment mentioned, which is generally hard to find in the files. Uh, and they were concerned about Section two 30, right? Section two 30 was the, um, legislation that was to be passed that would make the companies liable for news that they're spreading or not spreading. Uh, so that starts to frame the conversation a little bit more from their concern. They're not actually concerned with doing something wrong. They're concerned about it coming back on them politically. So within a day, the head of policy lowering Culbertson receives a gly letter from Carl sbo, which had already pulled 12 members of Congress, nine and three, nine Republicans, and three Democrats from the House of Judiciary Committees. And basically none of them were happy about the fact that they curtailed this story. Uh, not choice. Lets Twitter know a blood bath awaits an upcoming hill hearings. Em, uh, with members saying it's a tipping point, complaining tech has grown so big that they can't even regulate themselves. So government may need to intervene. Yeah. You think, uh, it says that when asked just how bad the situation is, one staffer said it's text access Hollywood moment and it has no Hillary to hide behind. Others. Were more blunt tech is screwed and rightfully so. Yeah. So it's like interesting to see that there was actually some conversations going on by employees saying that this isn't right. Right. Um, and then they even literally said that the First Amendment isn't absolutely like Yes. Yes it is. That's how the constitution works. Uh, and this is from SAS's letter containing chilling messages, relaying democratic lawmaker's attitudes. They want more moderation. And as for the Bill of Rights, it's not absolute with said, Uh, so there are multiple instances in the files of Dorsey intervening to question suspensions and other moderation act actions for accounts across the political spectrum. So some people have called this whole thing like, kind of like a nothing situation that it's not gonna have any big, huge public crowd cries. But I think this, if this does nothing but instill trust in Elon Musk's Twitter, that's a good thing, right? If, if he's willing to open up their books and, and open source all of the conversations that were be being had within this company, I think that's a positive thing for Twitter overall. I think that's a powerful thing for, you know, free speech overall. Um, I truly do believe that he did the right thing here and, and, and he didn't have to do this honestly. He, like was the one that called on this to happen. Um, Matt Taibi goes on to say it's been a whirlwind of a 96 hours for me too. There's so much more to come, including answers to questions about issues like shadow banning, boosting follower accounts, the fate of various individual accounts and more. These issues are not limited to the political right, and he says goodnight. Um, so there is a part two to this, which came up yesterday, and this is supplemental Twitter files. It says on Friday the first installment of Twitter files was published. Here we expect to publish more over the weekend. Many wondered why there was a delay. We can now tell you part of the reason why on Tuesday, Twitter, deputy General Counsel and former FBI General counsel, Jim Baker, was fired. Wow. Among the reasons, fighting the first batch of Twitter files without knowledge of new. The process for producing the Twitter files involve delivery to two journalists, Barry Weiss and me, via a lawyer close to new management. However, after the initial batch, things came, became complicated over the way. Over the weekend while we both dealt with obstacles to new searches, it was Barry Weiss who discovered that the person in charge of releasing the files was someone named Jim. When she called to ask Jim's last name, the answer came back. Jim Baker, my jaw. Hit the floor. It says Weiss. The first batch of files both, uh, both, both reporters received was Mark Spectra Baker emails. Uh, and then it goes on to say that, let's see if we can go back. Bakker is a controversial figure. He was spend something of a zeek of FBI controversies dating back to 2006 from the Steele dossier to the Alpha Server mess. He resigned in 2018 after an investigation into the. To the press the news that B was reviewing the Twitter files surprised everyone involved to say the least. New Twitter Chief Elon Musk acted quickly to exit Baker Tuesday. Reporters assumed searches through the Twitter files material. Oh, reporters resumed searches through the Twitter file materials. A lot of it today, the next installment will appear, uh uh, through Barry Weiss. Stay tuned. Now let's see if Barry Weiss has posted it, but it does not seem to be, so, yeah. All right. So yeah, and then that's the, that's the thing with this is like some people are like, oh, why are we still care? Like, right. The rights obsession with Hunter Biden was an article that I saw in Weis, right, is like the weird obsession with Hunter Biden. You know, the son of the current president of the United States who did shady business deals, peddling his father's influence to foreign countries and adversaries for profit. Along with what seemed to be sexual or exploitation of prostitutes, an ungodly amount of crack cocaine being consumed through a meth pipe. , uh, what else? Um, underage girls in, in foreign countries allegedly, uh, tear, terrible, disgusting pictures of him naked. Uh, all of these things, like why wouldn't people, the fact that people still aren't talking about that is more wild than the fact that people are, and the fact that it was like completely shut down, like they. Achieved what they wanted to. They, they, they exceeded all expectations on this by going ahead and making sure that nobody got to really see this. It didn't become a public conversation that changed much of anything. Everybody knows about this, but nobody's talking about it. I've done multiple, multiple deep dives into the Hunger Biden laptop. Uh, one episode specifically was a deep, deep dive into it. The emails, the pictures, the, uh, drugs, the prostitution, his dad, all of this stuff, even the Diary of Ashley, all of that stuff. I've done a whole podcast on it. So go back and listen to that. It's so wild. If you need to refresh your memory on how fucking crazy that whole thing was, go back and listen to that podcast because it, it is just mind boggling that this is not a more consistent conversation and that people aren't still freaking out about it. And I'm glad, again, I'm glad this is a consistent, now bringing this back up, but. It's still concerning, right? That it, that it has not changed anything. Hunter Biden's still out there walking. He, he hasn't been charged with, with Ping his father's influence Hunter. But Joe Biden's still the president of the United States, even though he was doing shady business deals with Ukrainian energy companies, two years before they were inverted by Russia. Shady business deals with China, right? You remember the China Joe, China Joe, like, I need to work on my Donald Trump. But, uh, but you remember all that, right? But if you don't, and if you need a refresher, go back and listen to that podcast, uh, because it is, it, it, it's truly should be a far bigger conversation than it actually has been. All right. Um, let's see if there's anything else that are here for us. Okay. Let's move on to. Um, and this is going to be the, that Elon Musk. Since this happened, since releasing these articles and releasing all of the communications through Twitter, Elon Musk says that he is at risk of being assassinated, assassinated as a result of everything that's been going on. So, Twitter CEO Elon Musk has declared his risk of assassination is quite significant in a ranging, uh, new chat. So let's see if we can maybe get some audio on this and give you guys a little bit of this, this story here. And here we come on. It's loading. Go. The risk of something bad happening to me of even literally being shot is quite, uh, sign. I'm definitely not gonna be, you know, doing any open air car parades, any open air car parades. What is he alluding there to? Hmm. Right. Maybe the, the, the JFK assassination. Right. Uh, wow, that's, that's a cool, a good little, uh, sub sub conversation subtweet, if I may, surrounding that , uh, Elon Musk has claimed that his risk of assassination is quite significant and the ranging, uh, two hour q and a audio chat on Twitter spaces, the social media platform CEO told listeners he definitely would not be doing any open air car parades. Let me put it that way. Frankly, the risk of something bad happen to me, or even leg or even literally being shot is quite significant. It's not that hard to kill somebody if you wanted to. So hopefully they don't. And fate smiles upon the situation with me, and it does not happen. There's definitely some risk there. The Tesla CEO in world's richest man, they self-proclaimed free speech, absolute added that at the end of the day, we just want to have a future where we're not oppressed. Yeah, that's a good future. Um, our speech is not suppressed, and we can say that what we want to say without fear of appraisal, he declared, as long as you're not really causing harm to somebody, Then you should be able to say what you want. This attitude has been clear since Must take over of Twitter last month. He has reinstated previously suspended accounts, including former President Donald Trump, and announced he would grant a general amnesty that everyone who has been booted off that had not been broken a law or engaged in spam must also ended Twitter's policy against Covid 19 misinformation and dismantled the company's trust and safety teams amid mass layoffs. Much of must conversation on Twitter spaces, which took place on Saturday night. Local time was devoted to the so-called Twitter files, a selection of internal documents released by journalist Matt Taibbi on Friday. Taibbi threat included files that showed Joe Biden's team instructing Twitter employees to remove specific Twitter political content in October, 2020, just weeks before he was elected president. Wow. Goes on to say that if Twitter was doing one team's bidding before an election, shutting down dissenting voices on a pivotal election, that is the definition of election interference. Musk, who has been highly critical of the platforms prior management, said, frankly, Twitter was acting like an arm of the Democratic National Committee. It was absurd. Musk had give, uh, said he had given Taibi as well as journalist Barry Weiss, unfettered access to old internal documents. Teasing more would be released and dubbing them the Twitter files, episode two. Wow. So that's interesting and that, that's something to be sad about, that like, there's always this talk about like assassination and in rightfully so, right, you have situations like, you know, the whole Epstein thing being an actual term used for the government wanting to, I don't know, kill you. Uh, And, and, you know, being in the space that I'm in, I've had some funny little messages before surrounding this type of thing for speaking about the things I speak about even. And I'm just a little guy here, not doing anything wrong, just giving my opinion on stuff, , but don't kill me. Um, but, uh, it is interesting and I like the way that he puts it, right? It, it is fairly easy to have somebody killed, he says. But I hope fate smiles upon me. . I love, I like that quote a lot. I almost should make a t-shirt out of that one. Uh, so the next part of the Elon Musk files is that after, uh, after this whole release of the Twitter files, Musk's neural link is under investigation. Over potential animal welfare violations, and this happened immediately after the Twitter files. Twitter files were released. Who would've thought the probe comes amid staff complaints about the company's animal testing being rushed. Elon Musk medical device company, Neurolink, is facing a federal probe in employee backlash and make claims of rushed animal testing causing needless suffering in deaths. Neurolink Corp is working on developing a brain implant. Hopes will curate range of neurological conditions including paralysis and Alzheimer's. According to the document seen by Reuters and interviews with staff, Neurolink employees have complained that pressure from CEO to speed up research has led to botch tests in unnecessary animal deaths. The recently launched federal investigation is focused on violations of the Animal Welfare Act, which governs how people or how animals are treated in research facilities. Now, what is the likelihood that two days after Elon Musk releases all of the files showing that Twitter was literally an extension of the Democratic National Party? To stifle dissenting voices. What are the odds that immediately following that Neurolink, all of the sudden has a federal probe into it? Right? And you even have the, uh, the White House Press Secretary calling, you know, people asking her if what their thoughts are on the Twitter, uh, gate Pro, uh, Twitter gate files and everything like that. And, uh, she kind of just stops the conversation. Doesn't say anything, circles back to it, right? As you would expect in the whole situation. So not much to be talked about there. And then Elon Musk also said that he personally wanted to punch Kanye West after the rapper posted a swastika on Twitter. I've already talked about that. I've already touched on it, so I'm not gonna do it much further. But yeah, maybe don't promote Nazis. That's not a good thing. Uh, and Kanye West got suspended again after doing all of that, right? After getting a good portion of society. Like there was a decent size rally cry around Kanye West, calling out the Jewish entertainment elites and the owners of multimedia companies in Disney and all of these, you know, large entertainment organizations and news media companies. There was a decent rally around it briefly until he went off the rails. Now, now again, I would like to go listen to the interview with Alex Jones. I will at some point and I'll update you guys on it cuz I want the context, right? Everything can be taken out of context. I really don't see how saying you love Hitler can be taken out of context. I, I, I don't exactly see how that one can be cured. Um, so again, off the Kanye train, not, uh, not something I support. So on that note, thank you guys for listening. I appreciate you so much. And.

Report: Steph Curry involved in SF Giants' two-day pitch to Aaron Judge

Locked On Giants – Daily Podcast On The San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants seemingly will stop at nothing to lure Aaron Judge home. Judge, a native of nearby Linden, CA, would be the Giants' most significant free-agent addition since Barry Bonds. The Giants met with Judge on Monday night and again pretty much all day on Tuesday, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic. Part of the SF Giants' pitch reportedly involved connecting Aaron Judge with Steph Curry, whose Warriors play down the street from the Giants' Oracle Park. Joc Pederson, Brandon Crawford, and Logan Webb also took to instagram in an attempt to recruit the Judge, whose 62 home runs in 2022 set the American League record. Judge was a near unanimous pick for AL MVP. Aaron Judge has also made it clear that his top priority is winning, and many have said that this makes the Giants less likely. But Dan Szymborski's 2023 ZiPS projections, which account for current rosters (so no free agents are assigned to any team) has the Giants projected at 83 wins vs. the Yankees' 85. Take Judge off the Yankees and suddenly they don't look like such a great team right now. They have a ton of money locked up to aging or underperforming players, so it could actually be argued that the San Francisco Giants are in a better spot in terms of projecting into future seasons. Relatedly, Baseball Prospectus' top Giants prospects list came out a few days ago, and once again they're high on the SF Giants' farm system. They're led by Marco Luciano and Kyle Harrison, as expected, although Luciano is more volatile now that he has been in the past. Harrison, whom Szymborski mentions as part of the reason ZiPS is relatively high on the Giants despite the absence of Carlos Rodón, is considered one of the best pitching prospects in baseball and BP suggests his ceiling is that he could be one of the best pitchers in the game.

Imagine going from not even starting on your Freshman High School team to a few years later, being considered the #1 athlete in the WORLD in your sport!This week we're going to spend an hour talking with one of the most talented hitters ever to play baseball.However, this show is about MINDSET, not baseball.SEAN CASEY is in the studio, and I couldn't be happier to talk to the guy they call THE MAYOR.Most people know Sean from his playing days as a first baseman in Major League Baseball during a career that spanned 12 SEASONS.  He finished with more than 1,500 HITS, a .302 LIFETIME BATTING AVERAGE, and as a 3-TIME ALL-STAR.You're getting a master class on THE MENTAL TOUGHNESS it takes to achieve PEAK PERFORMANCE on those big fields thousands of times over and over AND how you can apply what Sean knows to YOUR life.You'll recognize many of the things Sean talks about because I also believe they're critical to SUCCESS in any game you play.
