The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 1: The winner of a local school board race in Monmouth County, New Jersey has been changed after it was discovered that there were multiple electronic voting machine errors. After investigating the tabulating irregularities, it was determined that Jeffrey Weinstein defeated Steve Clayton by a single vote. Earlier in the week, Springfield Township in Montgomery County voted to ban the “Thin Blue Line” logo from its government buildings. According to a CBS3 news report, one member of the Board of Commissioners even compared the logo to the Confederate Flag. According to a Wall Street Journal report, “[t]he Justice Department considered having FBI agents monitor a search by President Biden's lawyers for classified documents at his homes but decided against it.” During her Wednesday press briefing, White House Press Secretary refused to directly answer questions about why there wasn't a visitor log for President Joe Biden's Delaware homes considering how frequently he works from home. According to a report from Jessica Chasmar at Fox News, President Joe Biden “met with at least 14 of Hunter Biden's business associates while he was vice president in the Obama White House, casting further doubt on the president's repeated claims that he had no knowledge of his son's foreign business dealings.” The report contradicts President Biden's 2019 statement—when he vociferously stated he had never met with any of Hunter Biden's business associates.

After investigating the tabulating irregularities, it was determined that Jeffrey Weinstein defeated Steve Clayton by a single vote.  3:10pm- Earlier in the week, Springfield Township in Montgomery County voted to ban the “Thin Blue Line” logo from its government buildings. According to a CBS3 news report, one member of the Board of Commissioners even compared the logo to the Confederate Flag.  3:25pm- According to a Wall Street Journal report, “[t]he Justice Department considered having FBI agents monitor a search by President Biden's lawyers for classified documents at his homes but decided against it.” 3:30pm- During her Wednesday press briefing, White House Press Secretary refused to directly answer questions about why there wasn't a visitor log for President Joe Biden's Delaware homes considering how frequently he works from home.  3:40pm- According to a report from Jessica Chasmar at Fox News, President Joe Biden “met with at least 14 of Hunter Biden's business associates while he was vice president in the Obama White House, casting further doubt on the president's repeated claims that he had no knowledge of his son's foreign business dealings.” The report contradicts President Biden's 2019 statement—when he vociferously stated he had never met with any of Hunter Biden's business associates. 4:00pm- Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich questioned Karin Jean-Pierre about whether the Department of Justice (DOJ) or White House would be investigating possible national security risks to President Joe Biden's mishandling of classified documents. Unsurprisingly, Jean-Pierre declined to answer the question and instead referred reporters to the DOJ—which, according to several reporters, is also reluctant to provide comprehensive answers.  4:25pm- On Twitter, billionaire Elon Musk wrote, the World Economic Forum “is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don't want.” Panelists during one of the WEF's meetings predicted that there could soon be a catastrophic cyber attack. 4:35pm- Eli Lake—Contributing Editor at Commentary Magazine & Host of The Reeducation Podcast—joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss his latest article, “American Nomenklatura.” In the piece, Lake writes of social media's content moderators and the role they play according to revelations in the “Twitter File” releases: “In just a few short years, this nomenklatura has come to constitute an implicit ruling class on the Internet, one that collectively determines what information and news sources the rest of us should see on major platforms. Talk about ‘free speech' and ‘the First Amendment' may actually be beside the point here. The Twitter that Musk bought was part of a larger machine—one that attempts to shape conversations online by amplifying, muzzling, and occasionally banning participants who run afoul of its dogma.” You can read the full article at: https://www.commentary.org/articles/eli-lake/twitter-files-reveal-american-nomenklatura/ 4:50pm- On Tuesday night, Flyers' defenseman Ivan Provorov chose not to participate in pre-game warmups—citing a reluctance to wear rainbow-colored “Pride Night” gear. Speaking with the press after the game, Provorov stated “I respect everybody.

In a letter to Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned, “[f]ailure to meet the government's obligations would cause irreparable harm to the U.S. economy, the livelihoods of all Americans, and global financial stability.” Meanwhile, Congressman James Comer (R-TN) told Jake Tapper that “our national debt is one of the biggest threats to our national security.” So, who is right?

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (01/12/2023): 3:05pm- Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Joe Biden's mishandling of classified documents. A second set of classified documents was discovered at Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware. In an exchange with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, Biden confirmed the classified documents had been stored in his garage near his Corvette.  3:25pm- At a press conference on Thursday, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the appointment of Robert K.

On the major global macroeconomic issues of our time, Summer's views aren't always the popular ones, but they are not easily dismissed.  Summer's leadership in the Obama White House in the aftermath of the 2007-2008 financial crisis gives him special insight into the importance of effective regulation of financial markets. Understanding how policymakers should regulate stablecoins was the subject of a fireside chat between Jeremy Allaire and Larry Summers this past September at Converge22, Circle's inaugural ecosystem summit.

I don't know how we got here so quickly, but it's officially December, and we're knee-deep in the holidays. While the holidays are a time for celebrating and festive feelings, for most, it's impossible to think of the holidays without missing someone. This time of year can remind us of people who aren't in our lives any more and those who have passed away and it can be daunting to try to balance Christmas cheer with the emotions that accompany crippling grief.    SO, I thought this was the perfect time for us to talk to grief advocate Marisa Renee Lee.    But let me preface this by saying...This episode is definitely not just for someone who's in the midst of their own grief, it's JUST as much for those of us who love someone going through it. We always want so desperately to say or do the right thing by them, but it's easy to feel that anything we might say or do falls short. And in this episode, Marisa gives us concrete advice on how to comfort a friend, as well as what not to do.   Marisa Renee Lee is a called-upon grief advocate, entrepreneur, and bestselling author of "Grief is Love: Living with Loss." If you ask me, I think this book should be read by absolutely everyone.   Dubbed "the friend we all wish we had in times of need", Marisa uses research-based wisdom to help us navigate the complicated and dark emotions we face when experiencing loss.   In addition to her work in the grief space, Lee is a former appointee in the Obama White House and CEO of Beacon Advisors, a mission-driven consulting firm primarily focused on racial equity, former managing director of My Brother's Keeper Alliance; co-founder of the digital platform Supportal; and founder of The Pink Agenda, a national organization dedicated to raising money for breast cancer care, research, and awareness.   In this episode Marisa explains:   What different flavors of grief actually feel like  How to support a grieving friend and, most importantly, what NOT to say/do… Anticipatory grief  Why you should continue the relationship with a person who has passed - how to do it  The differences between grieving someone who died unexpectedly/suddenly and someone dying from a long illness    Check out Marisa's book here.   Download this episode of Tell Me About It with Jade Iovine wherever you get your podcasts!

How does the new person you become in the aftermath of that loss go on living even as you go on grieving?   This week, we talk with Marisa Renee Lee, a former official in the Obama White House and a regular contributor to Glamour, Vogue and The Atlantic. She discusses at length the struggles she endured after her mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, then battled and succumbed to breast cancer when Marisa was just 25 years old. She set that emotional journey between the covers of her book, GRIEF IS LOVE: LIVING WITH LOSS.   In it, she offers a roadmap for readers to help them navigate the complexities of sadness and joy that accompany not just the loss of a loved one, but the loss of anything you love. And the first healing step on that journey, she says, is giving ourselves permission to grieve … even as we continue to love who or what we are grieving.   To learn more about Marisa Renee Lee, visit www.marisareneelee.com   To explore Crucible Leadership assets, and take our debut e-course DISCOVER YOUR SECOND-ACT SIGNIFICANCE, visitwww.crucibleleadership.com

Full show notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG: @RyanHawk12    https://twitter.com/RyanHawk12 Cody Keenan has written with President Barack Obama since 2007, working his way up to chief speechwriter. He's been named the “Springsteen” of the Obama White House, even though he can't play an instrument, and Obama calls him “Hemingway." His first book, Grace, became an instant New York Times Bestseller.  Notes: The use of productive paranoia. Cody said, “I was so afraid to fail that I would do anything to succeed.” – We can use fear as fuel… Storytelling – As a speaker, it is our job to help the people in the audience see themselves in the place of the hero in the story. When you're preparing for your next team meeting or town hall address, think about that and how you tell the stories that you do. Singing at the Eulogy in Charleston - If you want an A+ performance, you have to choose to go for it. You can get a B by playing it safe, but you won't perform with excellence unless you have the courage to go for it. In less than 10 years, Cody went from mailroom intern in Congress to chief speechwriter in the White House. My goal is to "write a speech that sings."  ‘In less than 10 years, I went from mailroom intern in Congress to chief speechwriter in the White House,' President Obama said he relied “on Cody not just to share my vision, but to help tell America's story.” “He's a brilliant writer. He's relentless.” The first speech Cody wrote was for Senator Ted Kennedy. Right after President Obama's 2004 Democratic convention speech that put him on the map. You write: “To see someone else speak words I'd written sent electricity right up my spine and out my hair.”

In less than a week America will head to the polls for the midterms- the first national elections of the Biden presidency and since the January 6th insurrection. Biden has told Americans that democracy is on the ballot- with hundreds of Republican candidates refusing to say whether they'll accept the elections' outcomes next week. Many more within the GOP continue to accept and propagate ‘The Big Lie'- that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump. And yet the Republican Party is rising, not falling in the polls in the final week. Have Democrats misjudged this campaign's message? And what will it mean for the Biden presidency if he loses one or both chambers of Congress? Emily and Lewis are joined by Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak and David Simas, the former Director of Political Affairs in the Obama White House. We also discuss dire warnings about the economy from the Bank of England and the prospect of a recession which lasts until 2024.

We all likely want to improve the organizations we work in. We might want to improve the employee experience, improve the customer experience, or be more efficient and effective. But we all likely have had the experience of feeling like our organizations are too difficult, too entrenched, and too complex to change. Any organization—large or small, public or private—can feel like a faceless bureaucracy that is resistant to change. So what can people do who want to affect change? How do you accomplish things that can seem impossible?To answer these questions, we talked with Marina Nitze and Nick Sinai about their recently published book, Hack Your Bureaucracy: Get Things Done No Matter What Your Role on Any Team. Marina and Nick have deep experience in one of the largest, most complex bureaucracies in the world: the U.S. government. As technology leaders in the Obama White House, Marina and Nick undertook large change programs. Their book contains their stories and their advice for anyone who wants to affect change.We find the hacks in their book quite valuable, and we wish this book had been available early in our career when we were both in much larger organizations. We love the fact that their hacks focus on the people and working within a system for change—not the move fast & break things mentality of Silicon Valley. Above all, we appreciate that it's clear that Marina and Nick thought deeply about what they would have wanted to know when they embarked on the significant technology change programs they undertook in the White House and Veterans Administration.Marina Nitze is currently a partner at Layer Aleph, a crisis response firm that specializes in restoring complex software systems to service. Marina was most recently Chief Technology Officer of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs under President Obama, after serving as Senior Advisor on technology in the Obama White House and as the first Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the U.S. Department of Education.Nick Sinai is a Senior Advisor at Insight Partners, a VC and private equity firm, and is also Adjunct Faculty at Harvard Kennedy School and a Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.

Curtis Chang joins Dr. Mark Turman to discuss our failing trust in institutions and how to redeem them, the role of Christians in politics and the workplace, election integrity, and how to combat anxiety.    Show notes:    Curtis Chang begins by talking about his ministry Redeeming Babel, which trains Christians to engage redemptively in different kinds of communities (2:19). Chang talks about the rising distrust of institutions, and how we can help redeem them, specifically pointing to Colossians 1:15–17 (9:47). In particular, Chang and Dr. Turman talk about work and the role of jobs in Christianity (20:27). They talk about the Trinity and how it helps us understand community (29:14). Chang delves more into how we can trust broken institutions, and how throwing them away will probably lead to greater destruction (38:00). They turn to converse about idolatry, politics, election integrity, and the boundaries of governments (48:53). Chang concludes by touching on anxiety and fear (58:37).   Resources and further reading:   Redeemingbabel.org  Good Faith - Podcast with David French and Curtis Chang “Are US elections always fair?” - Denison Forum   About the hosts    Mark Turman, DMin, is the executive director of Denison Forum.

I Alone Can Fix It gives readers a thorough behind-the-scenes look at Trump's handling of the final year of his presidency. Philip talks to Scott about Trump's reaction to January 6th and how Mike Pence fulfilled the President's duties that day. Rucker set out to learn specifics about cabinet meetings with Trump. What was everybody saying around the table specifically? What were people writing in their diaries? What were people remembering? In this interview, Scott discusses the highlights of some of Rucker's work and asks probing questions about the reception of this crucial information to voters. “Vice President Pence was on the phone with the Pentagon to make sure the National Guard were on the way and to make sure troops were coming to the Capitol to help secure it and to assist the Capitol Police, who were obviously seized and beleaguered,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist explained. “Pence was the one who fulfilled those presidential duties that day, in large part because Trump was AWOL. He was too busy watching the television.” “He was fixated on November 3rd and making sure that he would be popular. And so at every turn during the coronavirus response.” Rucker told Scott about the one guiding principle for the former POTUS throughout the pandemic. “Trump was making decisions based on politics, not based on science or how to save lives, or how to level with the American people, but based on how to help himself politically. And that's not our opinion. That's the judgment of the people who worked with Trump in leading the response.” Philip Rucker is the senior Washington correspondent at The Washington Post and led its coverage of President Trump and his administration as White House Bureau chief. He and a team of Post reporters won the Pulitzer Prize and George Polk Award for their reporting on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. Rucker joined the Post in 2005 and previously has covered Congress, the Obama White House, and the 2012 and 2016 presidential campaigns. He is an on-air political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC and graduated from Yale University with a degree in history. This interview was originally recorded in July 2021.

Elektra Health is back on our show, they're still smashing menopause taboos, and this time they bring good news! Menopause is gaining traction, there's a lot going on in this space, and we're thrilled because women truly deserve it. When it comes to menopause, Elektra Health is a must-visit platform, and they bring you everything you need to navigate this journey: education, care, community, and conversation. Elektra is all about science, evidence-based information, expert care, and endless sources of support. Today we hear from Jannine Versi, the co-founder and COO of Elektra Health. She's previously worked at Google, the Obama White House and Cityblock Health, to name a few, and now she's right where she belongs: in women's health. She's going to share plenty of interesting statistics and data collected from the company's latest research, so stay tuned as Dr. Dweck and Rachel navigate through Elektra's past year and learn how menopausal women feel in the workplace and what we can do to make them feel better! You can subscribe or listen to previous episodes of the Busine$$ of the V podcast by clicking here. TOPICS COVERED: Jannine's path to women's health after years in technology, public policy work, and general health. As Dr. Dweck points out, the healthcare experience is not very user-friendly for female patients, who are the entry point into healthcare. Jannine shares what Elektra's team looks like and how they assist women in navigating the healthcare system. Online support via telemedicine and a full-stack digital platform. Learn about Elektra's research on menopause in the workplace. According to statistics, one out of every five women in the US has considered leaving her job due to menopause. According to Dr. Dweck, during menopause women are divided into two groups: those who want to quit altogether and those who have been raised with a suck-it-up attitude. Mental health is a crucial component of menopause support, and 42% of women in the study reported not having enough mental health support. Elektra's method of educating businesses and helping them establish employee support systems. How Elektra differs from other platforms and how it stands out in the marketplace. Jannine provides insight into the process of supplement and medication recommendation. As Rachel points out, providing a more comfortable environment for menopausal women would reduce overall costs while increasing productivity. Menopause 101 is a must-read. Dr. Dweck avidly reads Elektra's newsletter and is astounded by the amount of detail and research. This October you can find Elektra Health at the NAMS conference. Jannine shares a wonderful testimonial written by a platform member. Elektra's plans for the future: some exciting collaborations are in the works. HOT FLASH: As of 2020, most employers have wellness programs of some kind, including 53% of small firms (those with 3 to 200 employees) and 81% of large companies.   QUOTES: “Most of our members at Elektra are women who are in various stages of perimenopause, or they're often recently postmenopausal.” (Jannine) “If you can support these women in their time of need, you can often influence decisions, loyalty, and retention across other parts of your health plan business.” (Jannine) “At a time when so much is happening in women's health, [we] need to be paying attention to how we care for women across the lifespan.” (Jannine) “The people who are having problems navigating their workday due to their menopausal symptoms, they're in my office desperate for solutions.” (Dr. Dweck) “I think there is a fear of pathologizing menopause in addition to all the other areas where women feel they have to counter stigma and bias.” (Jannine) “42% of women report not having enough mental health support to deal with menopause.” (Jannine) “We bring together education, care and community in partnership with women over the course of their journey to help them understand how to navigate.” (Jannine) “If you can provide an environment where [women] are more comfortable emotionally, physically and intellectually, think about how your search costs will be reduced.” (Rachel) “I'm amazed at the current status of the research that you present. It's not just a little teeny snippet that somebody may hear on the news or read in a newspaper.” (Dr. Dweck) “Building business in this space is hard. It's energizing. It's exciting. It's exhausting.” (Rachel) FURTHER RESOURCES: Website: www.elektrahealth.com Jannine @LinkedIn  LINKS FOR BUSINE$$ OF THE V: Website: www.businessofthev.com Dr. Alyssa Dweck: https://drdweck.com Rachel Braun Scherl: www.sparksolutionsforgrowth.com/about-rachel-braun-scherl/

He's been named the “Springsteen” of the Obama White House, even though he can't play an instrument, and Obama calls him “Hemingway” for reasons that have little to do with his talent or seasonal beard (ask him sometime). Even British GQ got in on the action, naming Cody one of the “35 Coolest Men under 38 (and a Half),” ahead of Ryan Gosling, but behind Tom Hardy.  In truth, Cody is more comfortable behind the scenes, shaping the stories of our time—whether moments of national tragedy or expansions of civil rights. He served as a young aide to the legendary senator Edward M. Kennedy. Cody holds a master's degree from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government and a B.A. from Northwestern University, where he now teaches a popular course on speechwriting. His own commencement addresses at NYU in 2015 and Northwestern in 2018 were highlighted as some of the year's best. Born in Wrigleyville, Cody finally got to write his dream speech just four days before Obama left office—one welcoming the World Champion Chicago Cubs to the White House. To his wife Kristen's enduring embarrassment, their White House courtship was documented on CNN. Today, they live in New York's West Village, where they just had their first child.  Cody's first book, Grace, will be published by HarperCollins in October 2022.

In late July 2016, FBI director James Comey notified certain members of the Obama White House, along with director of National Intelligence James Clapper, of the FBI's opening of their Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the Trump campaign. CIA director John Brennan was already aware as he was the one who had been providing the FBI with information regarding the Trump campaign. As Brennan testified to Congress in May 2017, “I was aware of intelligence and information about contacts between Russian officials and U.S. persons that raised concerns in my mind about whether or not those individuals were cooperating with the Russians, either in a witting or unwitting fashion, and it served as the basis for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion—cooperation occurred.” Welcome to Truth over News with Jeff Carlson and Hans Mahncke. ⭕️Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV

[00:30] Funeral of the Century (15 minutes) Queen Elizabeth II's funeral was a display of Britain's imperial institutions and traditions, celebrating both the Queen's life and Britain's history and victorious past. In many ways, today was also the funeral of the British Empire. [15:00] Biden's Incoherent 60 Minutes Interview (9 minutes) In a 60 Minutes interview that aired this weekend, Joe Biden inarticulately dismissed questions about his fitness for office, ignored the inflation crisis, and doubled down on his claim that he knew nothing about the Mar-a-Lago raid. He made several statements that have since been walked back by the White House. This interview made it more obvious than ever that Biden is not in charge. [24:00] The 44-Hour Sanctuary Island (5 minutes) Forty-four hours after 50 migrants arrived in Martha's Vineyard, the National Guard escorted them to a military base. The contrast is stark: When states being overrun by illegal immigrants request National Guard deployment, their pleas are ignored; but when a rich, liberal enclave receives just 50 migrants, the National Guard is immediately deployed to remove the problem. Added to that, Martha's Vineyard residents are now congratulating themselves for allowing the migrants to stay just two days! [29:30] Obama's Disinformation Campaign (8 minutes) The National Pulse reported yesterday that the Good Information Foundation, which is led by former Obama White House staffer Rick Stengel, was caught “offering social media influencers money to post false claims about President Donald Trump and January 6th” on TikTok. One TikTok whistleblower provided correspondence he had with the foundation, which gave him required talking points for the paid post, including phrases like “criminal conspiracy” and “Trump Republicans.” [37:10] How to Be Led by the Spirit (18 minutes) To be led by the Holy Spirit, we must maximize our daily hour of prayer, be honest about how much we mind the things of the flesh, and learn to heed the still, small voice. Instances throughout the book of Acts show the apostles living by these three qualities and being directly led by the Spirit.
