Episode 54 of the Space Industry podcast is a discussion with Adrian Helwig, Analog Field Application Engineer, and Michael Seidl, Systems Engineer from Texas Instruments, about how to develop a high-performing satellite communications payload.The evolution of satellite communications technology has pushed the innovation boundaries of subsystems and payloads. Simultaneously, the applications and supply of electronic components and power systems have also advanced in line with new market demands.NewSpace companies are tapping into these latest technologies in the satellite communications segment and utilizing it to open opportunities in markets such as laser communications. Therefore, in this episode, we will take a deep dive into the rising demand of high-performing satellite communications payloads, as well as the technical systems required to support these high-performance systems. Beamforming / electronically steered antennas, power density, and low board space are key requirements to enable it. RF sampling at high-frequency bands with high instantaneous bandwidth, high-speed ADCs are needed, extremely high quality clocking even more, RF amplifiers replace bulky baluns with even better linearity. High processing needs require efficient power supply as well as power generation capabilities. Advanced security is a key requirement for new missions (e.g. IRIS2 will use quantum key distribution) NewSpace technologies like laser communication, require high-speed data acquisition systems as well as precision pointing systems that require advanced motor control solutions You can find out more about Texas Instruments here on their satsearch supplier hub.And if you would like to learn more about the space industry and our work at satsearch building the global marketplace for space, please join our newsletter.[Music from Uppbeat (free for Creators!): https://uppbeat.io/t/all-good-folks/when-we-get-there License code: Y4KZEAESHXDHNYRA]

Your Halloween decorations have come down (or at least your pumpkin is not in good shape), you survived Amazon Prime Big Deal Days, and now you're getting ready to ditch your in-laws and enjoy one of the most exciting retail weeks of the year. Yes, it's time for Holiday 2023! This year, we've decided to do things a bit different by previewing the holiday in advance of Turkey 5. Rob Garf has kindly joined to walk us through Salesforce's e-commerce forecast for November and December, and we compare it to all the other forecasts out there (NRF, Deloitte, Bain, US Dept of Commerce). In addition to the top line forecasts, we touch on retail versus e-commerce, changing shape of the holiday, discounting climate, inventory and supply chain impacts, top performing categories, the economy, and the impact of rapidly growing Chinese brands (Temu, Shein, TikTok).

Transcript Jason: [0:23] Welcome to the Jason and Scot show this is episode 313 being recorded on Wednesday November 8th 2023 I'm your host Jason retailgeek Goldberg and as usual I'm here with your co-host Scot Wingo. Scot: [0:39] Hey Jason and welcome back Jason and Scot show listeners Jason is 3:13 the lucky number I had the 13 is kind of on there so I think we'll count it. Jason: [0:48] It's a lot of threes. Scot: [0:50] Yeah yeah I think it's a primal have to get one of our research analyst to work on the okay so we are recording this in early November as Jason said so at that critical part of the retail calendar all the plans are laid the discounts are on the table Cyber Monday. Thanksgiving Black Friday everything's teed up and everyone's waiting in anticipation of what holiday is going to bring us this year. And we know longtime listeners will know that our holiday turkey five coverage with a lot of sprinkling of data is second to none in the industry and this year we're going to take it up a notch in past years we've had our friend of the show Rob Garf VP and GM for retail at Salesforce on after the turkey 5 give us a real-time view of what they saw and for those of you that have been with us very long time this is her Jason's mom primarily those were episodes 110 249 282 and 299 man that's quite a track record this year we are going to take it up and have a delicious rub Garf before and after holiday sandwich it's kind of like that turkey sandwich but we're going to kind of sample it here before we even even have Thanksgiving. Rob before I before I go on welcome back for the fifth and I think record time on the show. Rob: [2:11] Wow I love it this is I will have to call the Guinness book up and make sure we get this knocked in memory on this is fantastic it's always good to be here and even better Scott and Jason and first of all thank you for having me on doing a little bit of a preview because as you mention were normally crawling through the data talking about the holiday weekend and seeing where everything lands after the critical time period and it's fun to take a little bit of a sneak preview and look at what we're anticipating and what we're seeing going into as you mentioned one of the most critical times of the year. Jason: [2:45] I think you're exactly right Rob I don't know why we didn't think of this sooner I feel like they should have always been part of our holiday tradition. And I do feel like we're getting all of the Rob protein with none of the nasty carbs so that's like a. Particularly healthy Thanksgiving treat but Rob before we jump into all of the good data remind listeners what the heck it is you do for Salesforce and how you get all this juicy data. Rob: [3:13] Yeah that's awesome let's by the way the listeners decide you know how. Advantageous this is after the fact I hope it is and again we'll do our best so yeah and I've been I always thinking about it thinking into this conversation now at Salesforce for over 7 years but I came. To the CRM Leader by way of demand where and if you remember demandware now Commerce Cloud was the leader and the cloud space and we instrumented the platform early on to get access to everything that flows. Through our Cloud so you think about all the Taps all the clicks all the swipes. [3:48] Now we don't have any access to personally identifiable information but we bubble that up and it becomes really The Benchmark for what's happening in digital and over the years we've included. Things from marketing and Service as well to look at a more complete buyers Journey. [4:08] And it's been really fun each quarter we release our shopping index which is available on salesforce.com built on Tableau and it's interactive so you can slice and dice it by vertical and by geography and it really helps. Retailers gauge how they're doing vis-à-vis their peer set which of course is extremely important anytime of the year but certainly even more important during. The holiday week now I think there's one thing that I sometimes forget to say so I want to make sure right cover it now which is. Our index and by virtue of that our benchmarks are from a outside in perspective so they are a look at the entire industry, not just Salesforce data we've modeled this over the last 10 years since its Inception so it's really intended to look at. The overall industry and benchmarking how peers are doing rather than speaking to anything that Salesforce is doing so that's my quick infomercial but hopefully more than anything just a little bit of credibility as to where we get the data, what we do with it and most importantly the conversations were able to have similar to what we're doing here. Jason: [5:19] God so that that sounds perfect. I do want just a couple clarifying questions before we jump into the actual data because I know we're going to talk about holiday like what is your official definition of holiday what what dates are you looking at. Rob: [5:38] Yeah thanks for asking that's always an important question so we've defined it over the years as the complete November and December so that's our holiday our peak season look. And we look at in particular for again the holiday weekend I know you call it cyber five or thirty five, we have cyber week which starts the Tuesday before, American Thanksgiving and works its way through Cyber Monday it's just something we started from the beginning and 4y like to like, your rear comparisons we've kept that intact so in on referencing cyber week or cyber five it's really looking at those, those seven days now of course the definition by some has been elongated and I hope we'll get into that in terms of when does the official real demand start but to answer your question straight on Jason it's for us at Salesforce November December. Jason: [6:27] Got it and so for historical purposes you've always been located in November December and then you're predominantly or exclusively focused on digital sales so you're you're reporting on what actually happened and forecasting what you think is going to happen in terms of e-commerce sales but unless I had this wrong you guys don't put a flag in the ground on on what you think is going to happen in brick-and-mortar is that true. Rob: [6:50] That is accurate now we do kind of go on the fringes a little bit because the bleeding between online or the blurring I should say between online and offline so we do have, data on buy online pick up at store we do have data on returns as well which is by virtue of, definition multi-channel omni-channel type of process but we don't put a stake in the ground because we just don't have the intrinsic data to be able to bubble that up and provide on the actuals. Jason: [7:20] Sure and then one other fun fact you reference the shopping index and you always have like the quarterly recap on there but I think. For sure during holidays and I think you're going to tell me your round you actually have a real-time dashboard up there so it's kind of a fun thing during the individual days of cyber week to kind of pop in and see see what's going on after your family Thanksgiving dinner to see if you're still going to have a retail job when this is all over. Rob: [7:50] Yeah yeah we do exactly so during particularly cyber week each morning the team is getting up super early as you can imagine and work around through the data and we're updating in real-time the data from the previous day and so for any retailer who is looking for the latest and greatest certainly by I would say 10:00 eastern time at the latest you will get that and see that up there we do have many customers who do use that in there Roundtable boardroom discussions each day to understand how they're doing it repairing it and more than anything Jason truth be told we need to get it up that early because our boss this guy named Marc benioff is typically texting us saying where's the data because I want to tweet it so yeah as much of a motivator as anything else. Scot: [8:40] Always fun when you get the text from The Seer. Jason: [8:44] Slack's slacks the he sends wax not to. Scot: [8:48] A slacks yes sorry I was off I was off brand for a second yeah he Einsteins it to his his Einstein slacks you. You mentioned one follow-up on that you mentioned American Thanksgiving that prompted me to ask this is largely we're talking about the u.s. here primarily we're not going to this is an international I'm sure you can go International but, we're doing more us right. Rob: [9:12] Yeah I'm prepared to do whatever I thought we'd probably borrow a bit more into us but we do have Global numbers but yeah. Scot: [9:20] Okay we have time Jason's obsessed with these Chinese companies I'm sure he'll ask you some questions so. Rob: [9:25] That's fair that wouldn't. Scot: [9:26] Yeah he gets all his clothes from she in any way. So before we dive into the topic du jour which is this year's holiday 2023 maybe recap for listeners kind of that you know. I know we had you on but the dust has settled and I'm sure you're going back and looking at it now with holiday 22 what were some of the bullet items that you kind of you you're thinking about as we go into 23. Rob: [9:56] Scot you don't think the listeners have totally taken This to Memory what we talked about last November 29 come on. You're probably right that's fine yeah I get it not all of us live and breathe this but yeah let's bring us back and you know actually if I could just for a minute, to put 2022 in context you need to think a little bit about 2021 and let me just spend a minute there and then I'll fast forward to 22 which is if you remember some of us don't want to in 2021 it was truly one of the first times that demand, actually got pulled forward in the holiday season and the reason was. The first mile delivery issues were stuck if you remember so many products were stuck in the port in the US of a Lala. The containers if they even got to the port or having a difficult time getting off the ship in into the domestic supply chain and people saw a headline after headline when I say people like consumers by or shoppers and they realized if they didn't buy early in the season. [11:03] They might not get the product that they actually want because in the past they would just have a waiting game and wait for the last and final deal and so. Demand got pulled earlier in the season and oh by the way retailers didn't have to Discount as steep as they normally do so going into 2020 retailers thought. [11:26] All of a sudden there would be this magical shift to Consumers buying earlier in the year and you know what that just didn't happen, there was actually a really good point of why that didn't happen when you look at the first two weeks of November we saw some of the lowest discounting rates that we typically see during the holiday season and because of these lackluster deals. People really didn't buy anything they waited and they again went back to their normal buying Behavior. One other by-product out of that is those that did by early. [12:04] We saw that they actually return the product during cyber week cyber week last year 2022 at some of the highest. Return rates during that week of the entire season people were doing their own price adjustments if they bought the product earlier in the year and realize they could have gotten a better price so there's like. I don't know how you calculate a triple or quadruple whammy on the bottom line that retailer saw. Because they were hoping to chase the deals earlier or wait I should say for the deals into the season and consumers just didn't bite. Overall and then I'll stop talking for a second here is what we saw. For let's just take cyber week as an example in the u.s. we saw a nine percent year-over-year growth growth online and globally we saw a 2% growth so us was really buoying up the global number there but a lot of that Sales Online happened right before cyber week and through the Thanksgiving holiday. Scot: [13:07] Got it it's kind of coming back to me I Remember You coining The Phrase discount chicken I remembered that is that right remember. Rob: [13:15] Yeah yeah yeah totally and thank you so discount chicken you know for the first time that we saw, retailers won the game of discount chicken last year I'm sorry in 2021 they tried to win again in 2022 but it just didn't happen consumers are really wise the real patient and now especially as they're seeing headwinds in their economic future there's definitely searching out for better and best deals. Scot: [13:46] Yeah this this kind of goes back to our data question it just occurred to me as we were talking about this obviously the macroeconomic is different now does that factor into your when you swirl all this together and you guys put together a funk forecast is that is that an input. Rob: [14:00] Absolutely yeah for sure and another piece that we look at very closely because it's driven so much of the growth over the last two years is inflation as well and so when you look at the last two years much of the online and growth is from increased prices not increased demand so people are just not getting as much from their dollar because of those increases we're starting to see that settle down the last couple quarters which is good news we're not quite seeing in Europe by the way but here in the US and so we're hoping, some of the growth will come from We're anticipating I should say some of the growth this holiday season coming from actual increase demand. Jason: [14:41] God so I want to I want to jump in the big reveal but a quick quiz first if you don't mind so last year us e-commerce growth nine percent G20 21 was also an incredibly abnormal year do you remember what the actual number you guys got for 2021 was. Rob: [15:00] For cyber week that's a. Jason: [15:02] No or sorry for holiday if you don't have it it's fine. Rob: [15:05] Overall holiday for 2021 was nine percent but that's Global so I'd have to go back to see what it was with the US. Jason: [15:13] No problem but so last year in the u.s. nine percent growth which was outlier for because Global growth was quite a bit softer. And so now here we are getting ready for Holiday 23 and what what do you think's going to happen when how much stuff we're going to sell online in November and December of twenty three in the US. Rob: [15:35] Yeah, so we're anticipating here in the US basically flat online growth and anybody I'm talking to is candidly quite okay with that and let me tell you why they're not overly bullish about significant growth online this year. For two major factors one is, we actually looked at the kegger over the last couple of years going back to 2019 and if things play out the way we anticipate we're still looking at for the holiday season compound annual growth of somewhere between 20 and 25% and so we're really where we are better than where we've been in 2019 year-over-year so we're you know we've been looking at these data points for quite some time during the holiday season if we're going to do 10 to 12 to 13 percent year-over-year growth online we're feeling really good and we've seen the average over the last couple of years come out well over that so there's a baseline that we're still needing to consider as we think about growth the second factor is. [16:50] The store. And we can't forget about even though our data doesn't explicitly account for that what we've seen in our data is that people are still going online very, aggressively meaning traffic quarter-over-quarter year-over-year is still really strong however what we're finding is people are then doing what they've naturally done for a long time which is in many cases then go into the store to actually make the purchase and so it doesn't necessarily tell when you look at flat growth year over year for the holiday season the entire story we're still feeling really good about it what helps us by the way one more caveat that I'll put in there and I should have mentioned it's got just a moment ago when you asked how we get to the numbers one of the key influences, is what does it October look like and particularly prime or we should I was about to say Prime day but the prime big deal days and so what we've seen when it first came out a nice halo effect. And we still see a halo effect certainly during the dog days of summer in July since the Inception of prime day. What was that 56 years ago but we although we saw bumps in the early part when it. First was established in October there wasn't a significant halo effect that happened during Pride a meaning those. [18:18] Not named Amazon during the October event we saw nice traffic we though saw really low discount rates once again so people were being patient they're biding their time and so we are seeing some nice add to cart rates as well so we saw people were poking around they were doing their research they were starting to. Think about what their holiday gifting this look like but they were waiting and so that's my long way of saying we're anticipating a fairly moderate holiday but we're not at all discouraged by what we. Jason: [18:54] Totally fair and so and I want to put your forecast in a little bit of context but before I do you kind of open the door on this whole October and shape of holiday thing like hey. Super useful to have historical consistency so I'm glad you guys report. The same time period every year right like I'm by no means proposing that everyone should change periods but it is interesting there's there's a lot more promotional activity. Happening in October than was true 10 years ago right and in very specific ways you convoluted 22 years ago, Prime day was cancelled in summer and happened in October and then they move prom date back to Summer but they added this second prime day and put a lot more marketing behind it this year than last year so and every other retailer on the planet. Counter programs against that that holiday and so there's been a. An increasing amount of pressure to pull sales in in October and then on the flip side a lot of people feel like holiday doesn't really end. And told mid to late January and there's a variety of reasons for that but one very particular one heck of a lot of gift cards get sold and gifted during holidays and they get redeemed. [20:18] Predominantly in January and so I guess I'm just kind of curious I'm not sure you would have necessary data behind this but like it does feel like holiday is flattening out and I know you guys pay particular attention to cyber week which you know is still a huge outlier and obviously we see way more sales on Cyber week than a traditional holiday week but. As a. Relation to the total holiday period it does feel like that spike is starting to flatten out a little bit like do you see holiday getting kind of stretched and flattened. Rob: [20:53] Yeah I love the question in this I feel like we could look back you know in a year or 25 years and do a whole. [21:03] I don't know extensive research project around how, people in mindset and shopping has evolved because it has and of course the pandemic had a big accelerator to that what we've seen in our data Jason is there has been a flattening out throughout cyber week meeting the big Spikes have typically been Black Friday and Cyber Monday and those still remain the two largest online days of the entire year but we are seeing a flattening out throughout the entire week but we haven't seen a lot of the sales, when it's all said and done pulled into October we do see a little bit of a blip in and around, the big deal days and we actually to your point other retailers have preempted the sales and we saw that in July as well meaning doing sales events the week before and it does draw them up, some traffic but we haven't seen a large portion being pulled into that time period what I will also say again lackluster discounts played a big role we're anticipating, comparing big deal days to cyber week cyber week we'll see about a 40% higher discounting rate. [22:28] Then what we witnessed just a couple of weeks ago in October you are totally right by the way that. [22:37] The holiday season does definitely extend through December and into January that's why most every retailer has there. You know fiscal year ending in January so they can really reconcile and get out from under what happened in the holiday not just gift cards but all of the returns and exchanges that invariably happen as well but at the end of the day just put a nice little underscore here is in 2020 and 2021 we did see a bit of pulling forward into October a couple of percentage points of sales but we're forecasting that 25% of all holiday sales will happen again as we Define it the 7-Day is of cyber week. Jason: [23:27] Interesting very cool okay so before we dive into some more granular topics I do you want to put the 9% in context and some listeners will be familiar with Nate silver and his poll of polls in the the kind of boring, boring a political forecast but the way more interesting March Madness forecast so I like to fancy myself as the Nate silver of e-commerce and so I do try to watch all of this data and huge caveat, nobody's data is Apples to Apples right so it's not really a matter of though this number doesn't match up to this number. Everyone has a slightly different definition of what e-commerce means everyone has a slightly different set of dates that they're looking at and they have different methodologies right so your methodology I feel like you get perfectly accurate data from a slice of the market right like there's there's no like. Human. [24:30] Are introducing your data because it's coming right from the systems and that the challenge for you guys is to take your slice and extend that to the the entire world of retail. The and I feel like you guys do that really well. So another data source that of course people are sick of me talking about is the US Department of Commerce which are these like surveys that they force retailers to fill out and. There's. Entirely different challenges and flaws in their survey methodology and how they defined e-commerce but just to kind of put things in perspective. I'm going to talk about they give us both brick-and-mortar and e-commerce data and so I pulled right before a show I pulled their data for the historical averages of November and December and so for the 27 years before covid-19. November and December sales grew, 3.8 5% per year so that's brick-and-mortar that's not related to the number you gave it all so average retail growth in that States of America / the US Department of Commerce in November and December three point eight five percent so and then I remind people the three covid years 20 21 and 22. [25:45] Were the greatest three years in the history of retail right because we didn't let anyone spend any money on travel and we mailed 10 trillion dollars to every man woman and child in America, to spend and so via the US Department of Commerce data 2020 Drew 9.2 percent. [26:04] 20:21 Drew 12.5 percent in 2020 to grew 5.4% so three straight years of, way over the historical average growth right and then using that same methodology they US Department of Commerce reports internet sales I'm way more skeptical of their internet sales because of the methodology in the way they Define it but just to put it in perspective. [26:32] For the 27 years before covid they have e-commerce growing eleven point two five percent a year and so then 2020 when everyone was locked in the house and not going to retail we had this monster year e-commerce group 35% in November and December from their data and then the following year because there was sort of a rebound and a return into two brick-and-mortar sales e-commerce sales were actually lower than the industry average so 2021 they had sales at 10.5% so a little bit off of the historical average and then last year they were the softest of all they were seven point six eight percent which is the slowest e-commerce growth in Holiday in the last 30 years so that's just kind of an interesting context right so the orders of magnitude are all right you had nine percent growth last year they had seven point six percent growth they don't forecast of course and so then I start looking at the forecast and a big forecast that comes out every year we're all friends of the NRF here and there in RF members the NRF just did their holiday forecast their forecasting brick-and-mortar growing three to four percent so. [27:45] Pretty much in line with that historical average that's a deceleration from last year which was 5.4% and they're forecasting internet sales of 7.9 percent so they're kind of perfectly splitting the difference between the US Department of Commerce and Salesforce for whatever that's worth by pretty pretty broad range and so that just kind of passes my quick sanity check Deloitte also does a forecast now deloitte's forecast is a different time range they consider holiday November to January and they're forecasting brick-and-mortar 3.5 to four point six percent so a little more optimistic and they're forecasting e-commerce at ten point three to twelve point eight percent so again a little more optimistic and then Bain did a forecast this year and they have three percent brick-and-mortar so I just wanted to throw that out there that most people are expecting this kind of three to four percent brick-and-mortar growth and this kind of we'll call it eight to eleven percent e-commerce growth. Rob: [28:51] Yeah and I would say given what you just talked about. Others a bit more bullish on the e-commerce growth than we are but I think directionally both brick and mortar and e-commerce are telling a very similar story which is e-commerce is still alive and kicking but it now has to be looked at in the context of brick and mortar and I think there's a lot of factors in that that actually will make the reporting moving forward even more difficult it is making it difficult and Jason you and I have talked about this before it's just the attribution models because it's not just about last-click anymore especially as people might you know in many cases go online and then go into the store where's that last click and how is that I'd be factored so everything from. [29:38] What we had anticipated in seeing around, you know 60% of digital sales now influenced by the physical store because the associate is driving demand through, customer service or client telling or social media or they're fulfilling Demand with being able to, you know pick pack and ship and online order. Or what's happening in digital as well in terms of people buying online and then picking up in or around the store so I think what is super interesting. In addition to what you said is how these metrics might evolve over time because it will depend a lot on, by retailer who's getting the credit and I know that's something that's been talked about for quite some time but literally how to is it how is it being accounted for and what does that do to how their reporting the numbers. Jason: [30:33] Yeah couldn't agree more and just 11 sort of example to illustrate that 11 kind of category that sold almost no meaningful volume online before the pandemic was grocery right second biggest category of consumer spending but none of it was online before the pandemic now depending on how you count ten to twelve percent of its online and guess what it all gets attributed as store sales right because it all it's all bananas that are getting delivered from a store and you know so 100% of instacart sales look like store sales to the retailer. And so it like I agree with you it's just it's just getting more and more convoluted. Rob: [31:14] Yeah well it's an interesting point around grocery you know our data showed in 2020 and most of 2021 we saw Triple digit growth year over year because of what you just talked about you just wouldn't ordinarily or historically by groceries online what drove a lot of that and what I think will drive Behavior moving forward is in 2020 we saw a 40-percent increase of net new. Digital Shoppers so these are people that hang out online but they wouldn't click the buy button and so a lot of those people now want to go back into the store but they're using digital they're using their phone in particular to really be that connective tissue. Scot: [31:55] What's a continue to peel the onion here you hit on this a little bit but tell us more about what you think is coming up in the 2023 cyber week for example if I recall last year Cyber Monday was the biggest e-commerce Day Ever set, is that did you guys agree with that or what's a my misremembering. Rob: [32:14] Yeah yeah so we actually have seen Black Friday actually. Bust up to the largest I know that's kind of hard to how others have looked at it but they're both really strong and we anticipate that being the case again again though we are seeing a bit of smoothing out of demand throughout the seven days. [32:36] Particularly on phones and I guess that's not a big butt when we weren't traveling we saw the Resurgence of you know iPads and tablets and actual regular computers especially when you get nice groovy one Scott like you did just recently but anyways I am getting distracted here by your awesome new computer but. What we are now seeing though is I move back to mobile and what we saw also during Thanksgiving a really strong traffic particularly local times between 4:00 and 8:00 if you think about it that's essentially when people are finishing their Thanksgiving Neil and they need a little break there sitting on their couch and they pull out their phone and so we're seeing a lot of traffic. Via Mobile and social as well by the way we are anticipating and we predicted this going back in June that we're going to see. Traffic via social be at a 10 times higher rate. Than traditional marketing so there's a lot of budget being pushed towards that media and we're seeing. [33:49] A lot of success there now they're still a bit of a gap in terms of conversion rate through that channel but again if you connect the dots mobile. And social happening over cyber week in particular on Thanksgiving it's going to be really strong and we're seeing again retailers lean into that. Scot: [34:10] So Black Friday was bigger growth last year or bigger absolute dollars or both. Rob: [34:18] For us it was biggest absolute dollars the growth was essentially spot-on for both Cyber Monday and Black Friday. Scot: [34:28] Jason and I'm assuming that did other people say it was Cyber Monday or it was at all. Jason: [34:32] Yeah they're they're different different folks had that different Peak yeah so but. Scot: [34:39] Controversy in e-commerce I love it. Jason: [34:41] Yeah controversy and they're getting closer together like they're worth in the early days. E-commerce Cyber Monday was a giant Tower and no one had internet access on Black Friday like that that could really is no longer the case. Scot: [34:55] Yeah well rip Cyber Monday cool I don't have any follow-ups Jason's Europe. Jason: [35:03] Awesome so. I want to jump into one of the other topics you introduced a little earlier so far we've been mostly topping up talking about Top Line which is a kind of easy way to think about this and it's you know it's a it's a kind of easy way to get your brain around it, at the end of the day retailers care a lot more about bottom line and a huge impact on holiday bottom of line is how aggressively in deeply folks have to Discount in order to achieve those sales so, are you guys like what do you forecast I don't know if you have a formal forecast for discounts but what what should people expect from discounting this year versus last year and what what are the trends there. Rob: [35:46] Yeah yeah yeah this is good because I missed a point before that I want to make as a relates to Discount and so this will give me a good opportunity to bring that up but still has to go right at that Jason we're forecasting on average a. Thirty percent discount rate throughout cyber week and again to put that in perspective it was 20% here in the US during the October event for. Prime big deal days again we look at the entire industry not just Amazon as a relates to that and so we're seeing a much more aggressive, discount rate now it's going to differ obviously by different segments you're not seeing as high in luxury as an example we do anticipate for tour toys and a consumer electronics which have been a bit of a softer category over the last 12 months again especially because because of the high Baseline they had because of the growth over 2020 2021 but we're also seeing and this goes back to the pulling forward of demand. Is more and more retailers are providing. [36:55] Black Friday deals throughout the course of November and. What's different in the past was it was fairly opaque in terms of we're giving you deals but we're not really sure those are going to be the best deals right and though we're seeing now much more transparency there's one major retailer that I'm sure you can guess who's doing Black Friday deals throughout the course of November and they are guaranteeing price matches. If for some reason they do go lower and they are also offering buy now pay later so you can commit to getting the product so you don't miss out on it but you can then pay over time and so what really came to life for me in this topic was we were doing a round table. [37:47] In Toronto in June and one of the attendees and she talked about this again at dreamforce in. September so I feel comfortable talking about it is a digital executive from Desi mm which is a cool health and cosmetics and Beauty brand that also has two other brands one called the ordinary and they have something that they've been doing for quite some time calling it, slow vember and their whole point is don't cause any urgency but rather. Make it a more relaxed buying experience and their point is throughout the course of all of November we're going to provide the same exact discount no matter when. And if you buy it and so we're seeing that a bit more and more some of it is coming by way of. [38:38] Early Access or exclusivity but also again extending and providing visibility, part of it is again trying to create that confidence that you're getting the best and final deal and also by the way you talk about the bottom line Jason. Is trying to reduce the Deluge of returns that often happen a lot of retailers. Are changing 88 percent according to our research are changing their returns policies and that's going to be a. Big risk and what and how that impacts holiday purchases this year. Jason: [39:13] Yeah you know it's funny there's so many moving Parts it's so complicated you think about like what a big impact inflation had on last holiday and you know good news like it seems like inflation is going to be lower this holiday. Consumer was in a better economic position last year than it seems like they're getting their sure we're seeing credit and defaults and things like that start start to creep up so there's there's just all these moving Parts but one thing I think a lot of people lose sight of is in the last three years predominately driven by the pandemic every retailer has completely reinvented their supply chain and their demand forecasting and I would argue everybody's way better at it now and they have way more agile Supply chains and there they're they're a lot more accurate with their level of inventory which means. They're more confident they're going to sell through their inventory and that changes their discount strategy like they're just all these moving parts that make it really hard to compare your over year when you know. Preview point the last three years sometimes we didn't have anything to sell and then the next year we had two years worth of stuff to say so. Rob: [40:24] I was just talking about that with an executive just earlier today and how retailers have gotten as you said better at demand forecasting. Better at Inventory management and I joke sometimes although I'm only half joking that supply chain has really come to the front office it's like really part of the customer experience at this point and has such an opportunity, to either negatively impact our hopefully positively impact. The customer experience especially when you're you know trying to find product after the shipping cut off window we're anticipating once again a huge uptick for those that have the ability for Consumer to buy online and. Pick it up in and around the store after. [41:06] The ship and cut off window we're seeing seven times higher growth rate for those that have that capability because essentially you're kind of shutting down your online doors if you cannot. Fulfill those orders after the fact and so but that requires to your point Jason like a lot of tuning. Around supply chain order management inventory oh and by the way store associates as well we have to. You know planned for that extra time that they'll have to take to fulfill that order will have to provide the right incentives and will have to give them the tools as well and I think retailers have gotten better at it. I don't think anybody's fully cracked the code but going back to your bottom line point last year for us the holiday theme was profitability and that doesn't go away I think people have gotten meaning retailers have gotten better at it but certainly always opportunity so I'm glad you called that out. Jason: [42:02] Yeah I like to say profit is cool again. Rob: [42:04] Providence cool again yeah. Jason: [42:06] The if you take nothing else away from this episode profit is cool. The the way it's funny like I joke about this but it's kind of serious when I started my career the the VP of supply chain probably started his career as a truck driver and and today that VP of supply chain like probably has a PHD in data science um so it's a that that occupation has dramatically changed the one other follow-up question. One of the cool things about your data set versus some of these other ones I look at is. You guys have real-time access to the data so as we record this we're eight days into November have you seen anything interesting or there any patterns that have stood out it you does it make you more confident in your forecast or in anything that's interesting for listeners to know. Rob: [43:01] Yeah we did look at the first couple days of November and also of course looked at October it's pretty consistent with what we saw, in Q3 in the US we're basically flat in terms of growth however traffic is up so traffic is up four percent. Orders are slightly down what we've seen which I think again is a very nice leading indicator is, product view rates have increased by 5% and add to cart month-over-month so September to October plus a little bit of November we've seen a slight uptick as well so what that's telling us is people are interested. They're doing their research. They're looking for the best deals they're understanding where the inventory is available and so that they're ready to make the move when they feel like they're getting the best and most value. Scot: [43:58] Cool so it sounds like if traffic's up in orders are down a lot of Tire kick in and kind of prepping and watching and making your list and you know could be the start of discount chicken 2.0 will see. Rob: [44:10] There you go exactly 2.0 I'm using that Scott I'm grabbing that I hope that's okay. Scot: [44:14] Discount chicken the chickens Strike Back. Rob: [44:18] Well and also I mean you talked about kick the tires so I think it's a good opportunity for a promo for spiffy at this point too so don't forget to get your gift cards as well right. Scot: [44:28] Yeah yeah we will be running some promos thanks. Jason: [44:30] And if you do kick your tires Scott can come to your house and replace them for you. Rob: [44:34] Exactly. Scot: [44:36] And shop for the new shoes online. Rob: [44:38] There you go I think there's a mash up there there's going to be spiffy and a DDOS coming together for anyways I don't know we'll leave that to the markers. Scot: [44:48] That's a good segue into my question in the predictions on category so I remember last year you guys had some interesting data on that does your prediction. Kind of data science get down into the category slicing of things or that's going to be more in the rearview. Rob: [45:06] Yeah no we certainly look at that we do it obviously based on what we've seen historically we're anticipating for the holiday. Active apparel active Footwear Health and Beauty being really strong so. You know we talk about the big number because that gets the headline in terms of essentially flat growth but we had tisza Pate some nice growth in those areas it's going to be a challenging partly because of comping as a relates to toys and gaming and consumer electronics if you think about that's just macro trend. People are looking for Comfort part of it is coming out of covid and maybe not all of us getting back into three piece suits but also when you feel a little bit of economic uncertainty I was listening to some Financial show. [46:02] While I was traveling over the last couple weeks and somebody put it as kind of the household PL or the household balance sheet you know when you're looking at that in your making choices you're taking more control of your finances which is happening people often migrate not only obviously to value, and safety they're looking at comfort and so there's something to be said for comfort and shoes and Footwear comfort, in apparel and almost the openness to be a bit more comfortable both in Social and in work situation so what are anticipating like I said active apparel active Footwear Health and Beauty being really strong luxury as well don't sleep on luxury they've been the most resilient category. In the pandemic and coming out of the pandemic and so that end of the market has held really well we're seeing a little bit. Of softness and what I'll call the aspirational luxury but as a whole that category is looking really strong and we anticipate it looking pretty strong, during the holiday as well. Scot: [47:12] Yeah this is old school but I remember a channel advisor going through 08-09 we were always shocked that luxury you know it's like the world is falling apart around us and people are like oh yeah I'll get a get a 400 dog and back it's gone. That part of the market just doesn't care that they're immune to those things I guess. Rob: [47:30] They're pretty resilient. Yeah I mean one other thing I'll throw in there just because I'm talking about it more and more with customers as we think about the holiday more as a. I think Bellwether to what will anticipate next year over the course and this is a global number but over the course of holiday were anticipating 194 billion dollars of online sales being influenced by a. Sorry are you thought you were going to get through this whole I know should I have not done that I'm sorry because you definitely that's on your bingo sheet. Jason: [48:07] Now I have to check the there's a I in this episode flag on iTunes. Rob: [48:11] Exactly well might get some more traffic that way so who knows but we find that super interesting most of it I want to like temper that. A lot because people are getting really excited about that headline is most of it will be from predictive a I like product recommendations which we've been doing for quite some time we're starting to see some early adoption of generative AI whether that's in email marketing with subject lines or body copy for that Saint product detail page with product descriptions or in service super interesting wood Gucci is doing and what they call a Gucci 9 their service center and teeing up responses for their agent to make them more efficient and allow them to scale but also stay on brand and so we'll see that a bit more but again a vast majority like I said it's around globally sixteen Seventeen percent of all sales will be influenced by AI this holiday. Jason: [49:06] That interesting so Rob we're almost out of time but I want to throw a super meaty 12 you for for a final question Scott was making fun of me but I am super interested in these Chinese brands that are capturing attention and share in the u.s. right and in particular that's that's Tim ooh which is has more traffic than Target more sales than Ed see in the United States Xi'an is the largest apparel reseller in the United States and then to a lesser extent Tick-Tock which has the vast majority of consumers attention in the United States and is now trying to sell stuff to people. What super interesting is it's not obvious those guys are all growing at Breakneck Pace much faster than your your nine percent growth number it's not obvious if or who they're taking share from so I'm curious of you if you have any POV it kind of seems like there they're inventing new demand or at the very least they're taking sure from brick-and-mortar it does not appear they're taking sure from the Amazons of the world. Rob: [50:09] Yeah that's awesome I'm glad you're addressing this I've just spent a couple weeks. In Europe I was in four different cities so talking to a lot of luxury Brands talking to a lot of traditional brick and mortars, and this is an area one of the executives put out Tech intermediary and I told him I would steal that and here you go I'm stealing it. Because I would say those that you just categorized are really wedging themselves in between the demand and the supply and they're creating a whole new platform where. It was just an originally with Tik-Tok and others about inspiration and now it's about purchase and so you know what we're seeing in Jason you and I have talked about this got 20 degree as well this idea of embedded Commerce or shopping at the edge. Where the buy button is being pushed up through the funnel on these delivery platforms again these Tech intermediaries I mean if you think about it they're almost like. The next generation of the shopping mall the shopping mall is created because of access because the highway here in the states and it created a place for people to hang out for people to get some food for people to shop. [51:16] People to socialize and because of that hey they could have tenants who that would then pay rent and sell stuff right and it's not dissimilar to what these Tech into mediators are doing in that they're monetizing their traffic I think they're coming after, the brick-and-mortar to a degree they're all so I wouldn't say creating more demand but fraying some of the man from. The brand sites because the brands are showing up there and so I would say there. [51:52] A little bit creating more demand but more than that they're kind of defraying the demand we've seen is. A high degree of growth thirty percent over the last couple of years of growth on these third-party intermediaries that we're talking about and they are taking from other platforms. Jason: [52:14] Interesting I don't know what the real answer is but I do know it's super interesting and important to pay attention to so I'm glad we brought it up but Rob that is going to have to be where we leave it because we have used up all of our allotted time I'm going to make sure to put a link to the Salesforce holiday dashboard in the show notes and super grateful for you taking at time and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and we're looking forward to talking with you right after Cyber Monday. Rob: [52:45] Thanks Jason Banks got ya looking for doing a short couple weeks looking forward to talking to you then. Scot: [52:50] You robbed remind listeners where they can find your pontification xand and do they just Google the the index to find your daily things or like is there a quick URL that you guys have that. Rob: [53:04] Yeah you know to be honest with you the best way to is go to Google and put in shopping index Salesforce and you'll get to our holiday insights Hub so it not only has the dashboards but has all of the blog's were writing and all of the up-to-date analysis. Scot: [53:20] Cool well thanks we really appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to deliver this delicious holiday sandwich for our for Jason I in our listeners. Jason: [53:31] All right you guys be well and until next time happy commercing!

Today, shopping is increasingly digital, the retailer and customer completely separated, and a customer's value lies not in their friendly wave as they enter a store, but in the data displayed in their online behaviour. Dr Kimberly Thomas-Francois, Thompson Rivers University, Canada, and Professor Simon Somogyi, University of Guelph, Canada, are scholars of consumer behaviour in the food business and are particularly interested in how technology shapes food retailing – a concept called ‘digital grocery shopping'.

On today's episode of The New Warehouse podcast, Kevin welcomes Erhan Musaoglu, the CEO and Founder of Logiwa. Erhan launched Logiwa two decades ago, initially implementing tier-one legacy WMS systems for large B2B companies. However, he noticed a gap in the market when it came to e-commerce companies. Traditional WMS solutions designed decades ago were inefficient for today's direct-to-consumer models, which require processing thousands of small, individual orders. The inefficiencies of using old systems led him to create Logiwa, a solution that addresses the distinct needs of e-commerce and direct-to-consumer businesses. Be sure to tune into this episode to discover more about how Logiwa is revolutionizing the world of warehousing and what the future holds for AI in this sector.Visit Bar Code Depot for 15% off your first RF equipment repair with promo code "Repair15" Check out our podcast friend Nate Shutes and his show The Bootstrapper's Guide to Logistics.

This weeks EYE ON NPI is a real throwback for us, it's the Orion Fans' ML2010 Mini-lab (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/o/orion-fans/ml2010-mini-lab), a portable engineering toolkit built into a suitcase for easy transport. This Mini-lab reminds us of the MIT Nerd-Kit used in digital and and analog design classes that require construction of circuit labs (http://web.mit.edu/6.111/www/project-photos/s98-projects-photos/s98projects.html). These suitcases were durable ...and super heavy! Thankfully we did not have to carry them back and forth to home each day - there were lockers in the lab. Many a digital-lab student wished we could keep the kits after finishing the course but sadly nerd-kits were not for sale - and we shudder to think what fate would befall us if we neglected to return them. Which is why this NPI caught my eye...finally I can have my very own nerd-kit thanks to Orion Fans and Knight Electronic Products. This silver suitcase contains many common analog and digital-logic tools to help prototype projects on a breadboard: Breadboard Power supplies Function generator stimulus Sweep ramp generator stimulus Pulse generator stimulus Protoboard I/O ports Switches Indicators Heavy-duty carrying case The solderless breadboarding area is made of three 630-point solderless breadboards (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/filter/solderless-breadboards/638), so large circuits with many breakout and dev board PCBs can be laid out. There's also a separate perf-board area (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/filter/prototype-boards-perforated/636?s=N4IgTCBcDaIA4FMBOAzABAIwPYEMkBMQBdAXyA) for higher-frequency work that could be affected by the breadboard capacitance, or when you want more mechanical stability. The perf-board snaps out when your project is done. The power supplies are where analog hackers are going to be happy, particularly folks who are designing exotic motor/power systems or audio/synthesizers: it has both +5, -5, +12, and -12V at 1 Amp output split supplies, and isolated-ground +18 and -18V at 1 Amp outputs, all with 0.1% line/load regulation and short circuit protection. For AC supply design - rare to find, so if you need it this will be a blessing - there's 15VAC center tapped that can supply 500mA. The power supplies are fused, and controlled by a large on/off rocker. Another great feature for analog hackers: there's also a full-featured function generator (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/filter/function-generators/630), with sine/square/triangle out - up to 18Vpp and +-10V DC offset with selectable decade ranges from 1Hz to 1MHz, and low distortion under 100KHz. There's inputs for FM, AM and sweep modulation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modulation), for low-frequency RF experimentation. There's also a plethora of connectors and switches so you don't have to figure out how to panel mount connectors or work out mechanical stabilization. For toggle switches, there are 2x SPDT momentary toggles, 2 x SPDT toggles, and 8x logic level toggle switches. D-Sub connectors also: DE-9 and DE-25 in plug and socket format. For connecting to other test equipment, 3x BNCs. And for input/output, 8x red LEDs, a 1K pot, a 100K pot, and an 8 ohm 1/4 W speaker. The Orion Fans' Mini-lab toolkit (https://www.digikey.com/short/bdhcv3pw) would make a great resource at a lab, workshop or classroom. It's hefty and durable but that also means it'll last a long time. It's an excellent step up from just cobbling together parts that can come loose, and you can put it away safely between hacking sessions without the risk of someone 'borrowing' a part! And best of all, it's in stock right now at DigiKey for immediate shipment! Order today and you can be prototyping in style on your very own Mini-Lab by tomorrow afternoon.

All links: Https://Linktr.ee/theaustinjadams Substack: Https://austinadams.substack.com ----more---- Full Transcription Atoms Archive. Hello, you beautiful people and welcome to the Adams archive. My name is Austin Adams, and thank you so much for listening today on today's episode. We are going to go deep into a topic that has been irking me for quite some time. And I'm sure it might irk you a little bit too, but we'll get to that in just a minute. The first thing that we're going to discuss today is going to be a Democratic congressman. Pulled a fire alarm to get out of doing his job. You heard right. That right there. You heard right that right there. A grown man in a position of power Elected nonetheless pulled a fire alarm to get out of doing his job. So Peter Doocy questions Kareen Jean Pierre quite A bit on this. It's pretty comical. Some people are laughing in the background during the white house press brief. Um, but pretty crazy stuff. So we'll, we'll touch on that first. The next thing we'll discuss is that there was a leaked us strategy document on Ukraine, which cites corruption as a real threat coming out of Politico. Could you imagine that? Could you imagine that corruption in Ukraine, which highlights on this article that Joe Biden's actually holding, holding Zelensky here? In his arm and whispering sweet nothings in his ears a lot of according to this picture. Um, so interesting stuff there. Then we'll move on to the next. which is that the Pentagon funded a study, speaking of Joe Biden, which warns that dementia is among us officials and poses a legitimate national security threat. So we'll read that together coming from the intercept. And then last but not least, we're going to talk about the October 4th. FEMA advisory, which is going to hit everybody's cell phones, everybody's TV and everybody's radio simultaneously at two 20 on October 4th. Now, if you're listening to this after that, which is. Potentially the most likely situation as this will come out on the third if you're listening to this after that don't worry What we're really discussing as a result of this because some there's some crazy theories about this October 4th thing Some people throw around the word like zombie. I don't know if I agree with that I don't spoiler alert but what I do think is a legitimate conversation to be had around this is the potential harm of massive Frequencies being put out nationally simultaneously and among different mediums and what that could mean for the general public so that that pulls us into a conversation about 5G 5G being a very hot topic when it comes to the well and then really not not getting enough conversation around it as it probably should, because there's been very little studies done on this stuff and its effects on people. And what has been done comes out from almost the 60s, but it's pretty wild. We're going to read into some of the articles, some of the discussions that have been had. Some of the concerns, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. just spoke about this on C SPAN, um, in a conversation with a potential voter, where he says that he's, um, actually representing a large group of people who were, uh, medically affected by 5G, so I, this isn't in the realm of craziness, guys. They put up these massive, huge, ugly... You've must have seen them. If you haven't, you need to open your eyes because they're everywhere, literally everywhere. Um, and we, we just don't, maybe we should be asking why, right? So we'll dive deep into that. And when I say deep, I'm saying deep. We're going to go there. So the longer you stick around, as always, the deeper we get. But first, I need you to go ahead and hit that subscribe button.

So I can put out things like podcast companions and deep dives and all other awesome stuff, whether it's today or in the future. Um, on that note, I know I've been out for a couple of weeks, but I'm not going anywhere. All right. Life gets hectic. Sometimes I actually turned 30. Um, same time, got my purple belt in jujitsu, had some awesome things happen in other sections of my life that just kind of made all the craziness happen at once. Went backpacking with my wife for five, six days. Um, Pretty awesome stuff. But with that increased responsibility in those, some of those sectors of my life, my plan is to delegate and automate some of the things that I'm doing here for you guys. So I can put out even more content. So, um, look out for that and thank you for sticking around. All right. Without further ado, let's jump into it. The Adams archive. All right, let's jump into it. The very first thing that we're going to discuss today is that a democratic congressman named Jamal Bowman pulled a fire alarm simply because he didn't want to do his job. Now we'll see here in a second that Peter Doocy does a pretty good job of undressing Kareem Jean Pierre. Um, not in the way you're thinking, you dirty mind. Um, but in this conversation during a White House press briefing, he asked a simple question that ends up being pretty funny. But let's talk about this first because could you imagine that you have an important meeting coming up? Maybe even an important deadline, right? Your boss needs something on time, needs you to make a decision, he needs you to send you some documents, right? And instead of doing that thing that you're supposed to do for your job. You go out to the hallway, you find that shiny red box and you pull the fire alarm. Do you think that you would have your job? For very long. If every time you had a responsibility or a deadline to meet you pulled the fire alarm. No Every single one of us normal individuals would lose our job would lose our livelihood That's just absolute especially if you got caught red handed on Video just like this congressman here right now. Leave it to a Democrat to I don't know, find some baby way out of doing their actual job. And guess what? Guess what? One person stood up for him in this AOC. Could you imagine that? All right, so here is Peter Doocy discussing this with Kareem Jean Pierre asking her a question. Now, let's go ahead and watch this video. As always, you can hover head over to YouTube, or join the sub stack, it'll be added there. But head over to YouTube, subscribe there. And you can actually watch The videos with me on your screen, you can, uh, read the articles alongside me that I have up on the screen next to me, head over there, Austin, or the, I'm sorry, the Adams archive on YouTube, uh, subscribe and watch it with me. All right. Um, so here we go. Here's the video. Let's watch it to gather. Thank you, Corrine. When president by never tried to get out of a meeting. By pulling a fire alarm. Are you talking about something specifically? A Democratic member of Congress pulled a fire alarm around a series of boats. No fire. Is that appropriate? What I can tell you is, uh, I have not spoken to the President about this. Uh, and so, just not going to comment. I will leave it up to you. I know there's a House process moving forward right now. I'll leave it to the House. Okay, uh, since President Biden is so pro union, is he okay with 75, 000 healthcare workers possibly walking off the job this week? What I can tell you is that we've said this many times already this morning. So there was a, you hear all of the chuckles during the briefing of everybody in there realizing how Peter Doocy just tactfully slipped that in there. Um, pretty, pretty funny to see. And you see, it's so crazy to me that this woman's job is to answer questions. And I would say 90 percent of the time that she's asked a question, at least one that's not teed up for her by CNN. She doesn't answer it. Your entire job is to answer questions, right? It's like having a customer service. She's literally the customer service of The White House of the government. She's the only talking head that we have yet. Imagine if you called Ikea and you said, Hey, I think that you guys sent me the wrong part or the wrong instructions. I can't figure out how to put this thing together. I have no idea what I'm doing. It's very complicated. And also. You sent me an inflatable ducky instead of a dresser that I ordered. And they go, we understand, we understand that you're concerned about that. And I would love to answer that for you. However, at the very moment, I don't have access to the proper documents to answer that for you, and I wish you the best. Moving on. Next person. It's like, no, no. Your entire job is to answer questions. You should answer the questions. Especially when the people holding you accountable is the entire nation. Only, nobody seems to be holding these people accountable. Right, and that, that maybe is the bigger issue here. Alright, so that's a pretty funny one. Let's move on here. Because we have some longer stuff to get into. I have about 10 different articles on the FEMA situation in 5G and maybe 3 articles to get to before then. Um, but, the next article that we're going to talk about here comes from Politico. And it says that there is a leaked US strategy to On Ukraine, which was outlined saying that there's corruption as a legitimate threat. Could you imagine that? Ukraine? And corruption? No way! So Politico says, A report obtained by Politico details specific plans to reform Ukrainian institutions and warns Western support may hinge on cutting corruption. The Ukrainian, uh, President, um, Volodymyr Zelensky and President Joe Biden meet in the Oval Office for this picture where Joe Biden seems to be, I don't know, enacting some sort of corruption where he's got his arm around him, whispering in his ear, like He smells, uh, a 12 year old's perfume. Um, it says that the Biden administration officials are far more worried about corruption in Ukraine than they publicly admit. A confidential U. S. strategy document obtained by Politico suggests, it says the sensitive but unclassified version of the long term U. S. plan lays out numerous steps Washington is taking to help Kiev root out maleficence. and otherwise reform an array of Ukrainian sectors. It stresses that corruption could cause Western allies to abandon Ukrainians, a fight against Russia's invasion, and that Kiev cannot put off the anti graft effort. Perceptions of high level corruption, the confidential version of the document warns, could undermine the Ukrainian public's and foreign leaders confidence in the wartime government. That's starker than the analysis available in the little noticed public version of the 22 page document, which the Department of State, or the State Department, appears to have posted on its website with no fanfare about a month ago. The confidential version of the Integrated Country Strategy is about three times as long as and contains many more details about U. S. objectives in Ukraine. From privatizing its banks... to helping more schools teach English, to encouraging its military to adopt NATO protocols. Many goals are designed to reduce the corruption that, uh, bedevils the country. Bedevils? Well, that's a good word. Um, the quiet release of the strategy and the fact that the toughest language was left in the confidential version underscores the messaging challenge facing the Biden team. The administration wants to press Ukraine to cut graft, not least because U. S. dollars are at stake. But being too loud about the issue could embolden opponents of U. S. aid to Ukraine, many of them Republican lawmakers who are trying to block such assistance. Oh, no, don't send 40. trillion dollars to Ukraine, that would be terrible. Um, yeah, I agree. Um, any perception of weakened American support for Kiev could cause more European countries to think twice about their role. When it comes to the Ukrainians, there are some honest conversations happening behind the scenes, a US official familiar with Ukrainian policy said. Uh, Ukrainian graft has long been a concern of US officials all the way to Joe Biden. But the topic was Def, def, deemphasize, deemphasized? Wow, whoever is writing this article is, you're doing too much, bud. I promise you. You don't have to use the word deemphasized. Should there maybe be a hyphen there? It's deemphasized, right? It definitely seems like there should be a hyphen there. I'm just an idiot. Um, in the wake of Russia's February 2022 full scale invasion, which Biden has called a real life battle of democracy against autocracy. For months Biden's aide stuck to brief mentions of corruption. Yeah, because he is the very corruption that they're discussing here, right? There's like a guy on the front of this document with a mustache that looks very much like Hunter Biden with a blonde wig. Right? It's like, yeah, we know in walks, uh, you know, he has a Burisma, uh, logo on his shirt. It's like, yeah, no shit. There's corruption in Ukraine, but at least now we have some documentation to show that they're at least acknowledging that, which is far more than we can say about literally every other piece of gaslighting that has happened to us as the general public over the last, I don't know, four years. Anyways, let's read a little bit more of the article which says, uh, A State Department official speaking on behalf of the Department would not say if Washington had shared the longer version of the strategy with the Ukrainian government or whether a classified version exists. William Taylor, a former U. S. Ambassador to Ukraine, said many ordinary Ukrainians will likely welcome the strategy because they too are tired of endemic corruption in their country. It's all fine, as long as it doesn't get in the way of the assistance we provide them to win the war, he said. Yeah, only the entire reason for the assistance for the war is so that the corruption can siphon the money out of it. In walks Raytheon and Lockheed Martin, right, or Burisma, and all of the sudden are hundreds of billions of dollars Turns into 20 billion to actually fund the war and 85 billion to fund third party organizations Which bid quote unquote these contracts and then some type of politician funnels that money out, right? The reason that they're sending so much money into Ukraine I believe is because there's far less oversight into where that money is actually goes. There's very little accounting. There's very little oversight. Nobody's looking into that. Nobody has access to the books, at least not on the U. S. side of things, right? If we're sending that much money over there, we should have thorough accounting going on. We don't. Last time I checked, there was people saying that of every five weapons that were sent there, like four of them were unaccounted for going to. Ukrainian mobs and stuff like it's so crazy how much corruption is going on at any given time. And then let's jump into this one, which talks about the Pentagon funded a study. Imagine that the Pentagon funded the study warning that dementia among us officials. And it only took you three full years of having a president who couldn't finish a sentence or even knew the names of his own grandchildren to realize this, right? How crazy. So this comes from The Intercept, and it says that Senators Mitchell McConnell and Dianne Feinstein Who have access to top secret information recently had public health episodes. Yeah, one of those just darred So this article comes from September 12th from the intercept and it says as the national security workforce ages Dementia impacting US officials poses a threat to national security according to a First of its kind study by a Pentagon funded think tank. The report released the spring came as several prominent us officials trusted with some of the nation's most highly classified intelligence, experienced public lapses, stoking calls for resignations and debate about Washington's aging leadership. Right. It really is quite crazy. Like in, when Feinstein died Feinstein Feinstein, whatever, when she died, it was literally hours before that she, before she died. Hours before she died, she was rolled into the Senate and gave a vote on something as she rambled through her answer, only to be told to shut up by her handler next to her and the woman behind her so that she could just, just say, I, they said, which seems like a coerced vote to me. She was in the middle of explaining herself and giving her full answer at 90 years old. This woman 90. Giving her answer as to her vote and then before she can even finish it with her actual answer or her vote She's told by some 25 year old 30 year old guy next to her in a suit. No, no, no, just just say I don't don't stop talking Literally who elected that motherfucker, right? Who told him to tell her how to vote? Nobody, nobody besides the vested interests that are paying all of their salaries, right? And that's something that a lot of people don't realize. And I started to realize more recently is that when you have somebody who's a senator like that, underneath that individual, that face, that public facing individual, there's A hundred people that are operating under them as a business, right? You have, uh, people who are negotiating on behalf of them. You have people who are working with the lobbyists. You have people who are writing the bills and writing the responses and running the social medias and like under each individual in Congress or Senate that you see or the president, there's a hundred people getting a salary to make sure that person stays in their place. Right? Okay. So when you have somebody like Feinstein, you have a hundred people. Playing weekend at Bernie's trying to make sure that she doesn't die. And if she does, you can still wheel her into the Senate or to Congress, Senate and make a decision on a bill so they all get their bills paid at the end of the day. Right? And that's how it works. Like it's, it's not just one individual making these decisions. There's 50 people behind them who are influencing their decisions, who are writing their responses, right? How many, how many people do you see? Like maybe it's. Uh, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, uh, you know, how many people do you know that actually go in there? Maybe Cruz, Paul, uh, who else? Madison Cawthorn that actually went in there speaking their own words, right? If there's something if there's one thing that frustrates me more than anything at all about politics is how They've pulled back the curtain They don't even care that you know that they're not even speaking their own words anymore Which is literally their job. Their job is just to say things. That's their job Just, just, just to talk, but they can't even do that. They have teleprompters and talking points and bullet points in a, in a journal in front of them and, and prewritten social media posts. And like, dude, be a real person. There's no reason that we shouldn't be able to elect intelligent enough people with legitimate views that align with party lines or. the vested interests, even if you just want to allow the bullshit to happen, that they can't even at least be smart enough to speak by themselves without a written, a written speech in front of them without talking points without being told to shut up by the guy next to you and just say I, which is exactly 100 percent exactly what they did. Right? Literally 50 people playing weekend at Bernie's trying to get Feinstein to make a vote hours before she died of a Terminal illness, crazy, crazy, right? And that is legitimately politics, right? There's a great Frank Zappa quote, and you've probably heard me say it before. Let's see if we can find it. And what he says is that the illusion. Of freedom, Frank Zappa said the illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion at the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and the chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back. of the theater, right? That's the teleprompters sitting on either side of them while they look through these see through pieces of glass telling them exactly what to say like a robot. That's the talking points in front of Kareem Jean Pierre. That's that's the the the social media posts being posted on Biden's social media instead of Kamala's, right? There's They pulled back the curtains. They don't even care anymore whether you know or not that these aren't these words, they're words, these aren't their opinions, these aren't, they aren't anything that's of value, that's a real person. There's nothing but invested interests behind every single one of these politicians besides maybe a handful, maybe a handful, right? And what you see is those people get voted out almost immediately, right? Pushed out by more money. Because they didn't realize what a threat these people were. People like Madison Cawthorn, right? You've seen how much pushback Marjorie Taylor Greene has gotten. Trump's been literally indicted multiples of times over again in the last three hours. I don't know. Right? It's so crazy to see how much they've pulled back those curtains and shown you that politics is not real. Right? And that's what's so frustrating at times about this thing. So it's like, it's almost like arguing with AI. It like, it doesn't have a personality. It doesn't have a soul. I can't sit here and debate a legitimate politician or somebody who holds legitimate beliefs. Because all that's behind that is the brick wall. And behind the brick wall is the, the contractor who created it so that he could make profits off of building it. That's it. That's politics in a nutshell to me. It's, it's so frustrating and so many people have seen through it now. Right? So many people are fed up with it, with the election cycles, with the fact that their vote doesn't actually count, that they feel there's, you know, less and less value to what they're doing every single day when it's involving themselves with the biggest decisions in our children's lives. Right? It's so frustrating to know that you're literally screaming at that brick wall. And we can make change and we can wake up enough people and you're seeing this what people are coining as the Great Awakening. Right? You're seeing how many people are realizing that it's just a brick wall. Right? The illusion became too expensive to maintain. And now they've taken down the scenery. They don't care. They just pump money into marketing, right? And having some marketing background myself, if you didn't know, um, what, what you realize is that in a small company, right? When there's, when there's 10 to 20 people, when there's 20 to 50 people, when there's a small enough. Customer segment that you're going after, it's a lot about creative, right? It's a lot about, you know, at least that's what marketing people like to think. Is that like, maybe if I make it look really nice, if I come up with the right slogan, if the, if the workflow or the user experience is super clean, then people will, you know, people will buy our products. If the product looks nice and it has value to it, right. And you put those things together. A marketing mind thinks that there's true value to the way that you present something and there is, but what you realize when you get into a larger corporation. Is that it's not as much about when you, when you have 2000 customers. That you want to maintain loyalty from that all matters, but when you have 2 million, or let's say 300 million, or maybe a billion customers, I don't know, politics, right? Um, 81 million votes more than any other, right? When you have that amount of people that you're pushing, it's what you're really your job is when you're doing marketing at that level is, is you're looking to leverage and weaponize data. Right? What you, what you're looking to do is how much money can I throw at this vaccine? And if for every 600 I spend on marketing, when it comes back to us, because it goes through the insurance companies who make the, the healthcare companies that are, that are fun or pushing people to get these things done, we make 800 in profits per person or whatever the margins were. You keep putting 600 into it, right? And, and, and that's where you have to see where's the profit really lie. Right. And that's where people started to question the overall narrative is like, was that even profitable with how much marketing, how much lobbying, how much incentives there were for politicians and healthcare individuals and the Fauci's of the world, and like, was it really profitable when we saw, yeah, they made like. trillions of dollars. Um, so for sure it was profitable for the pharmaceutical companies, but, but people started to question, was it profitable in the sense of, of monetary value for the pharmaceutical companies? The answer is obviously yes, but for the politicians, the profit was in the power. Right. The profit was in the ability to pass legislation to allow them to push us closer towards totalitarianism and what you see oftentimes to when it comes to large, extremely large corporations like Facebook wasn't profitable. LinkedIn wasn't profitable. Um, a lot of these companies hinge their profitability on it. continued funding more than they do on the profit from the actual, uh, sell of sale, sale of goods or, or services. Right? So, so when, when you can make something profitable through the next seed rounds that you have of, of your startup by continuing to get investors like Facebook data or LinkedIn data or, or right, but you don't have to worry about. What is, how am I actually going to, uh, monetize my service? Right? Because as long as I can continue convincing people that I can get money. And a lot of times it's just through users like Facebook and LinkedIn did or Uber or whatever, right? Like there's some, some companies that still are not profitable. Like Facebook wasn't profitable until like 2016. Right? So, so when you have the company large enough, you're there, they're, their entire existence is dependent on. Words on convincing large scale investors that they're worth it because we'll figure out the profitability later, right? And so when people are looking at the politicians and segmenting that out from the pharmaceutical companies, yeah, maybe it was profitable for the pharmaceutical companies, but for the politicians, the profitability either came from a extension of power towards authoritarianism, but also B, which is that They need to get continued funding, right? As long as you're appeasing the black rocks or the vanguards or the, the state streets or the Larry Fink's or the Klaus Schwab's or the Rockefeller's or the Soros's or the right, as long as you're continuing to appease the large money of the world, that the people who own the real funding organizations like these, and you're getting that continued funding. Then you're fine. You don't have to be profitable. You don't have to make decisions and maybe profitable when it comes to being a politician is more about popularity, or you don't have to be popular with the people. You don't have to be, you don't have to have a profitable service, right? Popularity in this, in this case, as long as the funding continues to grow, because with enough funding, you can get anybody in office as Biden and the guy who wears sweatpants every day. There's my rant. They pulled back the curtains guys. Alright, so there's your initial articles. The next thing we're going to discuss. October 4th, 2023. A day that many people believe could lead to catastrophe. Now I'm going to tell you why. FEMA put out a bulletin and I'm going to read it directly from their website for you so we can get some context on this. Which I just pulled up for you so you can follow along. Um, and if you're not watching on YouTube, you can actually pull this up for yourself. It says FEMA and FCC plan nationwide emergency alert test for October 4th, 2023. Alright, there you go. Um, you can look it up and read along while you're, uh, just listening. Alright, so it's on the FEMA website, FEMA. gov. And it says release date was August 3rd of 2023, release number HQ23124. And it says, uh, FEMA in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission, the FCC, We'll conduct a nationwide test of the emergency alert system and the wireless emergency alerts. This fall, the national test will consist of two portions testing WEA and EAS capabilities, right? Emergency alert system and wireless emergency alerts. Both tests are scheduled to begin in approximately 2. 20 Eastern time on Wednesday, October 4th. All right, now again, if you're here right now and you're listening and it's past the fourth and we all happen to not be zombies, as some people are saying, and nothing happened, I hear you. All right, I'm not saying anything crazy is going to happen, but I do think that this sparks an interesting conversation. But there are people saying that there is going to be some crazy shit that will happen. And we'll talk about that too. But the main point of this conversation is going to drive into 5G. All right. So it says the national test will consist of two portions, testing WEA and EAS capabilities. The WEA portion of the test will be directed to all consumer cell phones. All. All consumer cell phones. Do you know how many cell phones that is? This will be the third nationwide test, but the second test to all cellular devices. This the history of man. Right? And you're not going to tell me that there's any reason for concern. The test message will display in either English or in Spanish, depending on the language settings in your wireless handset. The EAS portion of the test will send out to radios and televisions. This will be the seventh nationwide EAS test, right? So one other time in history, have they done an emergency alert like this? It says emergency matters and other managers and other stakeholders in preparation for this national test to minimize confusion and to maximize the public safety value of the test. says they are coordinating with EAS participants, wireless providers, and emergency managers. And other stakeholders in preparation, right? The purpose of the October 4th test is to ensure that the systems continue to be effective means of warning the public about emergencies, particularly those on a national level. What does that even mean? The purpose of the test is to ensure that systems continue to be effective means of warning the public. You're telling me that you're testing to see that if you send a nationwide emergency alert. Like the Amber alerts, you're just seeing if it's effective. Like, what about putting that in front of literally everybody in existence with a cell phone makes you think it wouldn't be effective? Why do you need to test that? Weird. It says, in case the October 4th test is postponed due to widespread severe weather or other significant events, the backup testing date is October 11th. Now that's pretty weird to me. Why would they expect there be, to be severe, tell me the last time there was severe enough widespread weather events. That you couldn't send out a national advisory radio waves in the air. How does that make any sense? All right. It says the WEA portion of the test will be initiated using FEMA's integrated public alert and warning systems, a centralized internet based system administered by FEMA that enables authorities to send automated authenticated emergency messages to the public through multiple communications networks. The WEA test will be administered via a code sent to cell phones. This year, the EAS message will be disseminated as a Common Alerting Protocol, CAP, message via the Integrated Public Alert Warning Systems Platform for Emergency Networks. All wireless phones should receive the message only once. The following can be expected beginning at approximately 220 cell phone towers will broadcast the test for approximately 30 minutes during this time, W. E. A. Compatible wireless phones that are switched on within range of an active cell tower and whose wireless provider participates in W. E. A. Should be capable of receiving the test message. Okay, so there's your criteria for this October 4th situation is that at 220 for 30 minutes long. Thank wireless phones that are switched on within range of an active cell tower and whose provider participates in WEA. For consumers, the message that appears on their phones will read, this is a test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed. Phones with the main menu set to Spanish will display. Let me give this a shot for you. Esta es una pre UBA del Sistema Nacional de Alerta de Emergencia. No se necesita acción. That was pretty good. At least it sounded good. WA alerts are created and sent by authorized federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government agencies through the PAWS, or IPAWS, to participating wireless providers. Okay. Important information about the EAS test, right? This is the one that will be on your TV and the radio. It says the EAS portion of the test is scheduled to last approximately one minute and will be conducted with the participation of radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wire line video providers. The test message... Uh, will be similar to the regular monthly EAS test message, uh, which is the public is already familiar. This will state this is a national test of the emergency alert system issued by the Federal Emergency Management System, or agency, covering the United States from 1420 to 1450 ET. This is only a test. No action is required. Bye. All right. So there you have it. Essentially, if you're within a cell phone towers range and your cell phone is turned on, then you will get this alert. Now there is something that you can do about this. You can go into the settings of your iPhone and turn off. Emergency alerts. I've already done this for things like the Amber alerts. I've already done this. I've already done this, but you should probably should too, because here's the thing, giving the government immediate access to your brain, right? The, the imagine this, if you had a chip implanted in your brain and you could immediately have the government put something into your eyes and flash something that says a message, would you want the government to have access to that? And if you could take two minutes out of your day, one time to turn off their ability to do that. Now it's like, Oh, what if there's an Amber Alert? Well, the likelihood that there's an Amber Alert in my area that I have the ability to help, like, like there was this great TikTok that somebody posted. It was like what they expect somebody to do if there's an Amber Alert. And it's like a bunch of people just run out of their houses and just get into random people's cars and go start searching around for the Amber Alert. It's like, what the hell am I going to do? Like, sorry, I'm not I'm not Like, you know, what was that guy's name? Uh, Inspector Gadget. Like, I'm not going to be very much help here. Right? Now, of course I would love to help and do what I can to help in that situation. But, the access to my immediate information stream for the government at any given time It's just not worth the 0, 00000 percent likelihood that I'm going to be able to be the guy solves an Amber alert. Right? So just turn that shit off. Problem solved. You won't have to deal with it. Go into your settings on your iPhone, turn off emergency alerts. That's it. All right. Um, but to me, this drives another conversation, right? Well, let's look at some of the conspiracy stuff here. Let's see what people are saying on conspiracy Reddit about this. Um, it's not actually conspiracy Reddit. I had to find a go a little bit deeper into the Dark abyss of the internet to find this but it says unveiling the October 4th 2023 blackout conspiracy FEMA's mysterious Tess says the date October 4th has caught the attention. This comes from some random website that you've never heard of C O O P W B which stands for co operation of worldwide broadcast I guess maybe it sounded, they tried to make it sound legit, although thumbnail picture kind of gives it away. It says the date of October 4th, 2023 has caught the attention of many Nietzsens. Is it supposed to be citizens? Rumors swirl about potential blackout conspiracy tied to a FEMA test. Claims suggest that the emergency alert system test on this day hides a nefarious purpose. With such a significant event taking place and conspiracy theories gaining traction, it's imperative to separate fact from fiction. For more information about this topic, you can visit The Reddit. That's legit. All right, so we've already read through the FEMA advisory. Let's watch some of these videos. Uh, here's a video by somebody on TikTok named activate your pineal gland. Responding to comment, 30 minutes is very suspicious. Why? This is in regards to the emergency alert system that's going to be tested on Wednesday, October 4th for everyone. At the alert will be accompanied by unique tone. and vibration. Let's talk about tones and vibrations. This here is a Syma 1000. This is the machine I use. It is the basis of an app and a website that I have called Symatones, and it plays five resonant frequencies through this vibrating speaker. So this is tones and vibration, just like the alert we were just talking about, and it's targeting different ailments or body parts to retune them back to a balanced and a harmonious energy body. See, our energy body's got all these different pathways, and if there's blockages, And whether it's the water because we're made of water or in the energy pathway, then what that does is it causes a physical ailment. The physical ailments can be retuned by different tunes and tones. Back to October 4th, what tones and vibrations do you think the governments gonna be playing for us? Hmm. All right. So I'll address that first. What she's saying is that there's actually vibrational medicine, um, and you look at things like ancient Chinese medicine, things like acupuncture, acupuncture, um, things like, uh, there's a lot of like traditional medicine that leverages vibrational frequencies and, uh, unblocking, you know, what she's speaking to, um, which has actually been scientifically proven more recently when they were looking into things like acupuncture, uh, talking about the, um, flow of the energy flows within our bodies, which I tend to be a decent believer of, you know, having, um, been a part of, you know, actually gone deeper into things like, you know, yoga and Kundalini yoga and, um, transcendental meditations and things like that, that I've dove into and discussed previously on this podcast. You can go find, uh, what was it? Uh, I did a good, a good podcast on that. If you're interested on it, go back and check it out. Um, just look for transcendental meditation. Um, But, um, I, I, science, science, you know, whatever that fucking means, um, the, the, the truth bears, uh, but they, they, for long denying traditional medicine, they've, there's been a lot of studies that have come out that have shown legitimacy, uh, to exactly what she's saying, right? You know, you want to get deeper into it. You want to go towards the Napoleon Hill things, um, is that everything's a frequency, right? Every, the only, every object is vibrating, um, and, and sound is a frequency and movement is, uh, it has a certain frequency and the, you know, everything is vibrating at a certain tone and, and by manipulating vibration, um, our words, our frequencies, right. Um, and, and all it is, is a, you know, vibration of your vocal cords. And with that, you can, you know, Take over countries essentially, right? And what she's saying is that it's also can be used for good reasons medicinally and potentially negative reasons medicinally. Uh, so let's, let's continue to see what she says about that. And why 30 minutes? The water in your body resonates to different sounds, tones, and vibrations it is surrounded with. And not only does it vibrate to that while it's hearing it, but it remembers it within five to seven minutes. Dr. Gerald Pollack on YouTube is a great resource for water. So while my device plays tones and vibrations that promote wellness, what's playing on October 4th? Good. Question. I did not see that part of that article. Um. Ahem. Very interesting. Uh, it says the airwaves and online platforms are buzzing. A myriad of speculations, skepticisms, and stories have emerged. Painting a murky picture. Understanding the context and the facts is crucial to discern the reality of the October 4th blackout conspiracy. Uh, yeah. And you're doing this literally against people's will. So, right, so where I have a problem with this is that you, you're Taking something that's never been done before, right? You're aligning the frequency of the nation, essentially, right? When you activate a singular event for all people at one time, right? I want you to go into a church. Right, religious or not, I want you to go into a church. I want you to go into a synagogue. I want you to go into a, I don't know, literally any religious institution and see what they do 60 percent of the time that they're in there. I'll give you a hint. Vibrations. It's a singing. It's a frequency. It's a it's a it's it's the alignment of multiple individuals in a singular area with the alignment of their consciousness through vibrational frequencies, right? If So when you go into a church, you just, you feel it right when everybody's singing and everybody's aligned and everybody's speaking to the same higher power, whatever that is, you can feel that energy. And it's not just the music, right? And music alone is extremely powerful. And obviously, you know, Hollywood and the elites of the world have have weaponized that. But you realize the positive effects of that. So when you are aligning the consciousness of an entire nation at a singular time, let's just talk about that until we get to 5G and radiation and that type of thing. But let's just say that the tone, the frequency, That all matters, right? It's not like the, and even if they were just testing this, even if that was the case, let's, let's, let's not attribute malice initially. Let's, let's not get into the tinfoil hat wearing conspiracies. Let's just say, even if you were going to, as far as to say, they're just testing, they're just testing a, Uh, just, just making sure that it works, right? Well, when we go back to silent weapons for quiet wars, probably the most impactful podcast that I've ever done, maybe next to the Chinese, um, the interview that I did with, uh, uh, Mr. Gerber. Where he talked about the organ harvesting of the Uyghur Muslims and the, uh, Falun Gong movement. Um, again, super impactful, but, but I would say that when you look at silent weapons for quiet wars, and we discussed shock testing, right? This is... Potentially the single largest data set that could be leveraged. Every single person with a cell phone. So essentially every household in America at a singular time is given the opportunity for these people to shock test something, right? Whether that be the frequency, what does this frequency have as an effect on the general public? Right? And you go look at the CIA documents, you know, going back to like MKUltra times, you know that they tested these things. They tested these things for, for. legitimately brainwashing people behind what what the Soviets were doing, mimicking what the Soviets were doing with the Nazi doctors that we we've took in from Operation Paperclip. And this is this shit's real guys. Like that's the craziest part about all this is like, you string all these things together. And it's like, Oh, you're a crazy conspiracy. It's like, No, bitch, go to the CIA website. Research operation, paperclip research, uh, MK ultra research, what, what their CIA has been doing and what, what people have been doing in, in our organizations, in our, in our public sphere, in our politics for a very long time. So no, all of this is real. And so if you can shock test the entire public at a singular time, essentially what shock testing is, is, is, is taking a, um, figuring out with a large enough data set. What does it take to cause, if you give this input, what is the output? Right? If I, I don't know. Uh, If like Burger King, right? Everybody drives past a Burger King or maybe you used to. I don't know if they still do it, but they're there. They literally have like a chimney on top of it and they have the smoke flowing that smells like Burger King. It's like they tested long enough to see that. Oh, maybe people will come in more often if we put the smell out. literally into the air surrounding our area. Um, that's a shock test, right? They had to test that theory and see if it worked and see if the percentages went up of people who bought in the areas that they did it. Right? So, so if you can shock test the general public, if we have this input, right, and maybe they're going to do different, if they were smart, they would use different data sets, right? Or different lists for this, right? They, they would go into it and they'd say, all right, for a fourth of the country, we're going to use. This frequency for a fourth of the country. We're going to use this frequency, a fourth of the country. We're going to use this frequency. And these different frequencies have different effects on the human psyche. And, and maybe we can weaponize this to either make people more docile, make them more agreeable, make them more likely to have X, Y, and Z. And then they shock test it, they run that experiment and then they take the results and then they analyze them with extremely large and accurate data sets, right? So again, we don't have to get into zombie apocalypses for them to be shock testing large data sets with potential weaponized or. Whatever word you want to use for the frequency testings that they're using, right? This is this is real. This is legitimate. Go go do some research, right? But I I do see some potential issues with this just at a surface level Then you want to get into actual 5g And that's a discussion that we'll get into here in just a moment because we're still on like the first article of this. Um, now this comes from another, uh, account, which says that on October 4th, the FEMA and FCC will conduct a nationwide test. Wouldn't this be the perfect opportunity for hackers to tell the truth of what's going on? The greatest hack ever. Hmm. Saying that they, if they can hack the, uh, What's being sent out and and say something different potentially another person said the spread of the conspiracy This is Richard Elliott says turn your phone off October 4th 2023 a to 220 for at least 30 minutes God only knows what kind of malware this corrupt government will be downloading to your phones if you leave them on during this test That's an interesting theory. And again, you look at things like Pegasus, right? Pegasus being the world's foremost spying software that can be easily downloaded to your phone. It used to be that they would send you a text message, they'd send you an email, and this is, again, readily available information. The Mossad is using it, the CIA, um, um, MI6, all of them use this software to spy on terrorists and domestic terrorists and people who, I don't know, go through, uh, the Capitol building, uh, on a museum tour guided by the police on a certain date in January, um, and people like you and me because of the Patriot Act and they can do whatever the fuck they want, right? So, um, Uh, it says FEMA's announcement. Um, but, sorry, let me finish that about Pegasus. Pegasus essentially allows them to look at your, every single thing on your phone, controlled at all times, turn on your, your camera when, and have it not notify you. Um, so they can watch you, they can listen in through your microphone, which they're probably doing to me right now. Uh, Um, but it, it can essentially just, it allows them to, to weaponize your phone for, for spying purposes. And then they've already had it shown, um, through Edward Snowden that that's what they were doing, right? They were absolutely weaponizing that against citizens with no really due process or warrants or any reason at all. And they actually found that People within the organizations were doing this to people in their own lives, right? Crushes or girlfriends or excuse me, exes, pretty crazy stuff. Um, so there's another theory. Uh, it says conspiracy theories and concerns. It says enter off grid secrets, a YouTuber amplifying the conspiracies volume. He questions the Potential health risks of simultaneous phone activations. Without scientific evidence, he surmises potential harm to humans, insects, birds, and bees due to radiation. His intrigue doesn't stop there. Using a Germantria calculator, Off Grid Secrets dives deep into the date's significance, finding links to, uh, findings link the date to various cryptic terms, further fueling speculations. As of October 4th, 2023, date, nearest conspiracy theories will undoubtedly persist. Yet a critical mindset and reliance on facts remain essential. Only time will unveil the truth behind the October 4th, 2023 blackout conspiracy. Um, interesting, right? So there's some of the conspiracies that have come out. I actually do have, I believe that guy's, uh, video embedded somewhere here. Um, but I do wanna take you back and let's, maybe I can take you to one of his videos. Maybe we're. Too deep into this to get there. Um, yeah, we might be a little too deep. I have too many 5G articles up. Uh, so in walks 5G. All right. Um, And so, so let's go into this. Do you recall, this was back in February 7th of 2022, so, um, I was operating my podcast at this time. You can very likely go back. I believe I actually did a whole podcast, one of the topics being about this specific national terrorism advisory bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security, uh, titled, so again, February 7th of 2022. And it said summary of terrorism threats to Homeland Security. And you go down to the additional details on that webpage directly on dhs. gov and it says key factors contributing to the current heightened threat environment include. All right now, if you just press control F and we go five G one of the things on the department of Homeland security's website. Terrorist advisory says domestic extremism or domestic extremists have also viewed attacks against us critical infrastructure as a means to create chaos and advance ideological goals and have recently aspired to disrupt us electrical and communications critical infrastructure, including by spreading false or misleading narratives about five g cellular and as technology. So if you spread false false meaning against the mainstream narrative of what the corporations who funded these individuals and put them in power want you to think, right, because we all know that the fact checkers mean nothing other than their narrative enforcers for corporations. If you even speak out against that, I am right now. Talking about how potentially this technology, which is, we have no clue as to what its effects are, and you say anything that's against what they want you to say or think about their technology, then you can be deemed a domestic, violent extremist, specifically for just having an opinion about the potential side effects of a technology that nobody knows the side effects of. Nobody. Nobody. I'm not claiming to know the side effects of this. Now, I'll present to you some evidence from some people who do, but I don't know. What I will tell you is, everywhere you look right now, there's a frickin 5G tower. I will tell you what I know, which is that when people go up to those towers and work on them, they wear large, white radiation suits. Like, E. T. style radiation suits to work on the 5G towers. I wonder why. What I will tell you is that there was articles coming out about how large swarms of bees, birds, and a bunch of other animals and insects were dying in the immediate vicinity of 5G cell towers. Allegedly, according to those articles. All right. What I will tell you is that Robert F. Kennedy jr, which we'll find out here in just a second is representing a group of individuals who say that they were negatively affected by 5g. And what I will tell you is that the same people who wanted you to believe that you should get the vaccine also, you know, not a vaccine. Understudied mRNA gene therapy, uh, also wants you to shut the hell up and not say anything about their ugly ass towers that are everywhere, right? And they're literally trying to hide these towers by making them look like trees. Really shitty, ugly trees, by the way. These towers are the most horrific looking eyesore of anything in the world today. They look terrible. You've seen them, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Um, and it's infuriating. I don't know about you, but my phone worked just fine before 5G came out. I don't know about you, but I still sit and shit loads forever, and no matter how many 5G towers they put around my house, or as I'm driving on the highway, my cell service still hasn't improved 1%. 1 percent in the last 5 to 10 years. Yet everywhere you look right now, they're putting up 5G towers. Why? That's the better question. What is the purpose of this? What am I gaining out of this? Or what are they gaining out of this? And of those one of one things that have happened like this, those, those mass communications that have happened, there's only one that's happened before now. How many occurred when 5G was in effect? That's another question. Alright, so, Department of Homeland Security, February 7th, 2022, released a bulletin saying that if you speak out against 5G, according to the Department of Homeland Security, you could potentially be a violent, extremist, domestic terrorist. On that note, let's talk about 5G. Uh, alright. Oh, I do also want to know that if you go back and you had to go back, and by back I mean to Wayback Machine and go to the CDC website because they scrubbed, the CDC scrubbed their website of this article that had preparedness 101, zombie apocalypse, and this was back in 2011. I don't know if you remember that, but the CDC actually gave out guidelines surrounding a zombie apocalypse. Now, it seems to be in the light of some satire. Right? And because they opened it up with, there's all kinds of emergencies out there that you can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse, for example. You may laugh now, but when it happens, you'll be happy you read this. And hey, maybe you'll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency. They talk about, and give legitimate guidelines for how to survive a zombie apocalypse. So again, I think the people saying that are silly. When it comes to this because there's like an in the you know, you go to the deep deep websites You go to like the the QAnon 4chan conspiracy websites, you know the things like You know one that I've seen before is what's it called? Before it's news. com. That's an interesting one if you want to go deep but You go there and you there's all these conversations about zombies apocalypse 5g You know all of that so Have fun kids, but if you want to go check this out, you have to go to Wayback Machine You have to find the article And maybe I can, I can link that for you in the, uh, in the sub stack. So, um, or, you know, I'll, I'll put it in my Instagram. So let me, let me give my plug here is, is that the CDC actually had a document released of how to prepare for a zombie apocalypse. They did that. All right. Um, so I'll include that. If you go to my Instagram, you can comment on there. Maybe I'll, if I can make that a clip, um, I'll have something on there where I can send it to you automatically through some automation. So, um, all right. So that's one thing. That's interesting. Here's another one, right? You want to let's let's get into the actual 5g conversation because I think this is important. This is something that I've been wanting to do for quite some time now. And this may go over a little bit and it's already, you know, almost 12 o'clock here. But hey, what do I got to lose besides Being considered a terrorist according to the Department of Homeland Security for talking about technology concerns drink to that So here goes a video of Robert F. Kennedy jr And he is discussing with a voter about how he's you know, she says he's a conspiracy theorist and all this stuff So let's go ahead and watch This video. You are definitely not in my book or any of my democratic family or friend book, a Democrat. Um, your conspiracy theories, they, they literally scare us. Um, we just came out of four years of, you know, full of Trump lies and his conspiracy theories in this country. You claim that you want to heal us as a nation and our divide. And this is not, I mean, the wifi causes cancer and 5g is. Is mass surveillance and, and chemicals in our water cause transgender and, and, and antidepressants cause school shootings. I, I'm so confused and so I'm looking for clarity from you today, Mr. Kennedy. Okay, uh, Sharon, thank you for the call. You laid out a lot of things. We'll let Mr. Kennedy respond. Yeah, Sharon, thanks for those questions. You say that I have conspiracy theories and, you know, you're labeling me anti vax, which I'm not. Or a conspiracy theorist, which I am not. Um, is one of the ways that the Democratic Party and their allied press have silenced me. I mean, you, um, you mention, for example, 5G and, and dismiss the fact that 5G causes cancer. But I'm representing now hundreds of, of, of, of men and women in this country who have gotten, uh, a glioblastoma. Uh, classic cell phone tumors, uh, from 5G, and there's, there are reams of scientific studies that show that that is happening. Um, you, you say that 5G is not used for surveillance. Is there really any American left? Who believes that the government is not, uh, spying on the American people. Wire Magazine. 5G smartphones cause cancer. Big Wireless doesn't want you to know. That's two thousand and sixteen. Back before they totally controlled all the media. The FDA black box warning on antidepressant suicide risk in young adults. Oh, that's from the NIH, National Institutes of Health, saying it's on the insert that it causes suicide and mass murder. But you heard her say, how dare you say that to R. L. K. Jr. Suicidality in children and adolescents being treated with antidepressant medications. FBA. gov. It's a fact. Like the U. N. said, oh, aspartame gives you cancer and heart attacks, but it's okay. And a present black box warning ten years later. So, I'm done talking about that. We just spent 45 minutes or more responding to that caller. Probably a real person, probably not just a seminar caller told to say it. And they just think we're scaring people. We're bad. So I just responded to him All right, so there's your daily dose of Alex Jones But nothing you said was wrong, right? Very very interesting articles that he just brought up and I have some of my own and some of my own videos here that we'll walk through together now one of the foremost experts on this is you know an experts I mean You know, a consistent person who was found doing seminars on the dangers of 5G is Dr. Barry Trower. Dr. Barry Trower being somebody who is a part of MI6 Intelligence, allegedly speaking out about 5G. And here's a portion of his seminar that he did in 2000 and... 21, um, called the Truth of five G and wifi, and you can find it on YouTube, uh, Dr. Barry Trower, T r o w E R, the truth about five G and wifi part one on YouTube. There's only 700 views here, but uh, I believe the original clip was taken down. So, um, here we go. This, I think, is the most shameful document ever to be published. It is by the World Health Organization. We pay them to protect us, and we trust them to protect us. In 1973, the World Health Organization had a conference in Warsaw. Biological effects and health hazards of microwave radiation, below thermal, Radiation, which is what you have on your cell phones. 350 pages, documenting harm to the ordinary person. 107 different chapters, chapter 40 deals with cancer, uh, I think 28 reproductive faults, but instead of telling the world, I don't know who made them make the decision, instead of telling the world it was stamped top secret, with a big red top secret stamp, it still is, and you still will not be told about this, they will not admit to it. The second most shameful document, I think, is this one. This was published between 1972 and 1976. The final part was 1976. It is from the U. S. Defense Intelligence Agency. And the document says, If the more advanced nations of the West, which is us, are strict, In the enforcement of exposure standards, there could be unfavorable effects on industrial output, industrial output is profit, and military function. In other words, what they wanted us to do was set a level of radiation for the NATO countries, set a level of radiation that would not be strict. Hence, we came in with the six minute thermal level that is still in place today and what councils are advised to adhere to. At that time, the World Health Organization, again, what they didn't tell you, on their website, or on their, what they had on these days, 80 percent of the published papers linked cancer to low level microwaves. And the others, you had neurological damage, birth defects. Uh, there, there was no secret among the decision makers then. And every so often, when a, generally when a new G comes out, a new, uh, one of the new makes of the cell phone, the International Commission for Non Ionizing Radiation Protection, they put out an addendum to their original report, which clears the way for whichever generation it is coming out. There's a new one coming out in a couple of days to clear the way for 5G. This is the original, or a copy of the original, uh, International Commission document. And it is of interest to decision makers, all decision makers, excuse me, because I think I'm not legally trained and I cannot understand people when they talk to me who are legally trained. But I will give you my interpretation of this. And this is for council decision makers and all other decision makers. They actually say in this that... Their recommendations are guidelines. They are not law. You do not have to adhere to them. They are guidelines. They say they only consider involving the heating of tissue. They go on to say, for example, Children, The elderly and some chronically ill people may have a lower tolerance for one or more forms of these microwaves than the rest of the population. They will be deemed sensitive. And then they say, on page 547 of this one, In practice, the critical steps in applying these general procedures may differ across the spectrum. Several steps in these procedures require scientific judgment, for example, on reviewing the scientific literature and determining an appropriate reduction factor. In other words, in my simple brain, if you are told that something is dangerous, as a decision maker, you have the authority to say, this says this level will cause this. I am instructed to reduce the level to a point that is deemed safe. You do not have somebody walk into your school or somewhere and say, Sign here, gov, these are radio waves. We've had
