Greg Glassman #13 | Live Call In

Sevan Matossian (00:01):

I’ll send you the live callin notes and then bam, we’re live. And then Greg, I’ll send you the live callin notes. Hey, dude. Are the people where you were deployed scrambling right now? I

Caleb Beaver (00:18):

Don’t know. It’s a couple of rotations after I was there, but I imagine they’re very busy.

Sevan Matossian (00:26):

They are very busy, probably because of what’s happening.

Caleb Beaver (00:30):

Yeah, the proximity is close.

Sevan Matossian (00:38):

They’re on some sort of alert.

Caleb Beaver (00:40):

Oh yeah, for sure. There are a lot of resources that can be utilized there. So I think that they’re probably either on alert or I know that I’ve seen some videos, some places where they’re taking supplies to them already. They’re dropping off big cargo planes worth of weapons and stuff to the Israeli military.

Sevan Matossian (01:06):

You’ve seen evidence of that already?

Caleb Beaver (01:09):

Oh, yeah. Also, they’re moving a lot of the naval boats or ships or whatever you want to call ’em, into that area too.

Sevan Matossian (01:19):

Hey, when I hear that they moved an aircraft carrier and it’s supporting ships that have over 5,000 troops on them combined with, and it’s the largest aircraft carrier in the world. Is that fair to say that we’ve deployed 5,000 troops to the scene? What is it? Oh, because they’re in the water. We are not saying they’re deployed. It gives you kind of some wiggle room with your vernacular.

Caleb Beaver (01:48):

Yeah, well, and I think those

Sevan Matossian (01:50):

Is David weeded a Jew. That would be amazing.

Caleb Beaver (01:55):

That’d be hilarious.

Sevan Matossian (01:57):

God, that would be amazing. Go on.

Caleb Beaver (02:00):

Well, the thing is, if you’re, I think from a naval standpoint, if you’re on a boat, you’re deployed. So wherever you go is part of that deployment, I guess. So I think technically you could say that, but they were deployed to an area of responsibility not necessarily deployed to Israel. You know what I mean? Different carrier groups have different areas of responsibility throughout the world. So this carrier group just so happens to have responsibility within the Mediterranean and kind of like the Middle East, Eastern Europe,

Sevan Matossian (02:36):

If we sent 5,000 Marines, let’s say to the Lebanon, okay, here, I won’t even use a hypothetical. There’s UN troops on the ground there. The UN has troops in that region, peacekeeping troops, I think specifically at the Lebanese Israeli border, those troops have been deployed to that region, right? Is that the right vernacular? Is that,

Caleb Beaver (03:02):


Sevan Matossian (03:04):

So Brandon Laka is saying they’re deployed, so those troops are deployed, so at least you could say they’re deployed to the Mediterranean and to a closer proximity. Correct. And I’ve heard that that boat has weapons, basically guns with bullets that are so fucking gigantic that they’re the size of a Volkswagen Bug and it can shoot them from soap like 15 miles away over the horizon line. You won’t even see the boat shoot it,

Caleb Beaver (03:34):

Right? Yeah, they can do that for sure. They don’t even have to see the target. They just have to know on a map, like G p s coordinates kind of thing, where to throw it.

Sevan Matossian (03:51):

Another thing I keep hearing is that the Palestinians are stuck. So when I was in college, my dad came and saw me. I was fucking running around town naked, and he’s like, Hey, dude, what the fuck’s going on with you? He drove five hours south. I’m like, I don’t know. I’m just having fun. I’m partying. One of the things I said to him is I said, I wish there was something in my life that I was so passionate about, Jesus was that I’m willing to die for it. That’s what I said to my dad. I use Jesus as the example. And my dad said to me, what about having something you’re so passionate about in your life that you’re willing to live for? And that kind of changed the trajectory of my whole life when he said that. Now my dad’s in Armenia, and he’s like, basically, I talked to him on the phone the other day and he’s like, listen, I’m not coming home. I’m going to stay here and fight off these fucking azerbaijanis if I have to.

Caleb Beaver (04:45):

Really? I

Sevan Matossian (04:45):

Go, Hey, dude, do you remember what? You have fucking three grandkids here, six grandkids, three of my sisters, three of mine. Remember what you told me in college? You got some shit to live for over here. What do you mean you’re going to die over there? So I said to myself, I was thinking, Hey, if I’m Palestinian, I’m out. My country is basically, it’s a hiding ground. It’s a breeding ground for these Hamas fighters. Iran is using us. Everyone’s using us. This piece of land is not even really a country. It’s just a staging ground for war. So if I’m Palestinian, I’m like, fuck it, I’m taking my kids. I’m leaving. And Oh, okay. Yeah. So zoom in there for a second. Show me some shit. Tell me what’s, show me some stuff. That body of water right there. Okay, go ahead.

Caleb Beaver (05:38):

This one right here?

Sevan Matossian (05:39):

No, no, no, no. By the Jordan and But go ahead.

Caleb Beaver (05:43):

The dead and all that.

Sevan Matossian (05:45):

The Gaza strips. So the Gaza Strip is completely surrounded by Israel?

Caleb Beaver (05:50):


Sevan Matossian (05:52):

Okay. So those people can’t get in and out of their land. Who gave them that land? What’s to the south of them there? What borders? To the south of them there where it says Highway 40.

Caleb Beaver (06:07):

Is that part of Egypt? I think that’s part of Egypt. This right

Sevan Matossian (06:09):

Here. So does the Gaza strip border with Egypt? Can they leave out through Egypt?

Caleb Beaver (06:13):

Yes, it does. It could.

Sevan Matossian (06:16):

So one of the things I heard is that Palestinians are fucked because they’re stuck in there and they can’t travel in and out of Palestine without the approval of Israel. And yet then I googled it and it said a hundred thousand of the 2 million people there work in Israel and commute back and forth every day, which would be one in 20 people, which means that there’s massive commuting going on.

Caleb Beaver (06:40):

Yeah, that’s pretty significant.

Sevan Matossian (06:43):

I know this is going to sound like just such a dick move, but if I’m Israel, I take that land back, I go house by house, and I push all those people out of there once and for all. You can’t have those people there if there’s going to be fighting there. You can’t have a neighbor inside your country that’s trying to fuck with you. I guess that’s the same thing that’s going on in Armenia. Oh, there it is down there. That’s a great map. Okay, so all that fighting has been going on there

Caleb Beaver (07:09):

In the Gaza Strip.

Sevan Matossian (07:10):


Caleb Beaver (07:11):


Sevan Matossian (07:12):

What a mess.

Caleb Beaver (07:14):

It’s pretty gnarly.

Sevan Matossian (07:16):

I’m out. I’m out. I’m sorry. I know it’s easy for me to say, but I’m out. Hey, dude. There’s people fleeing California because they don’t want to be around people who chop off little boy’s penises. And I’m telling you, California is better than the Gaza Strip.

Caleb Beaver (07:33):


Sevan Matossian (07:34):

If Jesus could redo his story, he’d do that shit over here.

Caleb Beaver (07:39):

Yeah. I think this is a pretty good example of actual hatred. So much hatred that you’re willing to invade another country and kill everybody. Anybody.

Sevan Matossian (07:54):

What a mess.

Caleb Beaver (07:57):

It’s pretty

Sevan Matossian (07:57):

Dramatic. There was a whole thing. Let me see if I can find it. Oh, I guess I’ll show this. When Greg’s on, I got some pictures of the aircraft carrier. There was a lady I saw, oh, this Israeli history. Oh, look at 1 67, pull up 1 67, check out 1 67. This was interesting. This is kind of long, but I don’t care. Fuck it. Let’s do it. Oh, Heidi says, no, sev. That’s the point. Jesus goes to the most undesired location and safe. Well, he should have gone to Antarctica. Shit is fucked up over there. Okay, listen to these guys. Now these guys guys look like Jews, so maybe their shit’s a little biased, but let’s hear.

Speaker 3 (08:50):

The fundamental narrative about Israel essentially is that as a compensation for the Holocaust, the Jews were given a piece of someone else’s land in the Middle East where they’ve settled, and now there is a battle over that piece of land because of that original sin, if you like, which is a viewpoint of, frankly, up until I started listening to some of your talks was unshakeable in my really understanding. Yeah, absolutely. Because don’t know. I honestly don’t know about

Speaker 4 (09:20):

It. That’s the default narrative.

Speaker 3 (09:23):

So in what ways that not the case, Melanie?

Speaker 4 (09:27):

Every single thing that you’ve just said is untrue.

Speaker 3 (09:30):

Most of your conversations that’ll make him happy before I change,

Speaker 4 (09:34):

Obviously it’s a big subject, but the idea that the Jews had no connection to the land of Israel until a guilt-ridden west took them out as a remnant of the Holocaust and stuck them into someone else’s country is the opposite of the truth.

Speaker 3 (09:55):

So what is the truth in that? The

Speaker 4 (09:56):

Jews are the only people for whom the land of Israel was ever their national kingdom. Hundreds and hundreds of years before Islam was even invented and before the Arabs invaded, the Jews were the original nation, the original nation upon which America and Britain in a kind of mystical fashion in Britain modeled themselves. Why do I say that? They were a nation, because they were a people in a particular area of land, which they governed according to laws they made, and which they defended. Now, they were a nation for several hundred years under various kings, and then they were basically kicked out, and then they returned, then they kicked out again, and then that land of Israel was occupied by vast numbers of different civilizations, the Romans, the Assyrians, the Arabs, various sorts of Muslims, Christians, crusaders, and for a long period, the Ottoman Turks who were Muslim but not Arab. And then we get to the turn of the last century, and there grew up in Britain as a result of, mainly as a result of evangelical Christianity, a movement to return the Jews to their ancestral homeland. And these people were called Christian Zionists. And the kind of apogee of Christian Zionism in political terms was the Alfa Declaration in 1917 was a cabinet which was dominated by Christian Zionists, and they believed that it was their duty to help the Jews return to restore.

Sevan Matossian (11:54):

Greg, what’s up, dude,

Greg Glassman (11:56):

Buddy, how are you?

Sevan Matossian (11:57):

Good. So those guys have been there forever.

Greg Glassman (12:01):

Definitely. What? The Jews?

Sevan Matossian (12:02):

Yeah, I didn’t

Greg Glassman (12:07):


Sevan Matossian (12:09):

Go ahead.

Greg Glassman (12:10):

What do you think they we’re in Brooklyn?

Sevan Matossian (12:13):

Yeah, exactly. That’s what kind of dip shit I am. I believe the narrative that the guy started it with, that that was just the United States and Britain’s way of like, all right, we got these Jews. What are we going to do with them? We’re going to give ’em this little piece of land here, take it, and it fucked other people. But then when you go back and you just scratch the surface just a little bit, you’re like, Hey, that was always their home.

Greg Glassman (12:33):

My Southern Baptist family prays for the Jews. Anytime there’s a conflict, because the Old Testament says that they were the chosen people. These are the people of Abraham. And that’s, yeah, it’s a fact.

Sevan Matossian (12:52):

Hey, if you’re Palestinian, do you leave at this point? You’re like, Hey, I was thinking if you’re Palestinian, are you like, holy fuck, the Iranians have taken our homeland and turned it into a staging ground for war. It’s time to pack up and get to California. I got to go to the United States

Greg Glassman (13:06):

Of the two point something million there, 285,000 have less left in the past five years.

Sevan Matossian (13:13):

So 10% of the population has already left,

Greg Glassman (13:16):

And the Hamas leadership is vile.

Sevan Matossian (13:23):

It’s crazy.

Greg Glassman (13:23):

Yeah, it’s absolutely vile. This striking a deal with them makes as much sense as if they had set up a deal with the Uvalde shooter instead of killing his ass, gave him four classrooms and 20 students.

Sevan Matossian (13:41):

Right, right. That’s an interesting comparison

Greg Glassman (13:45):

For me. It’s about that simple,

Sevan Matossian (13:48):

Hey, yeah, they can come to California. All the Palestinians I know are great people. They’re like Armenians. They just want to fucking put their head down and work. All the ones I know here, we got a handful of ’em in Santa Cruz that are amazing run liquor stores and a lot of the beach markets, they’re great people.

Greg Glassman (14:08):

I’ve not met culture or race that I find objectionable. I dunno what that would look like, really.

Sevan Matossian (14:16):

Right. Well, I can think of some cultures that I don’t like ghetto culture. I don’t like that culture I see in Oakland. I don’t like fentanyl culture. I know that’s a little different than a little bit of a stretch.

Greg Glassman (14:34):

Yeah. Pick your stereotype for what’s wrong in the black community.

Sevan Matossian (14:42):


Greg Glassman (14:42):

What you have to do is ignore the black doctors, lawyers, dentists, accountants, clerks, school teachers, principals, cops, firemen, construction company owners. I mean,

Sevan Matossian (15:01):

Along that look

Greg Glassman (15:02):

On cnn. On cnn. If you don’t speak Ebonics, and if you’re not aggrieved, you’re not a black person is Joe Biden has fucking the gall to say that if you don’t support him, you’re not black. And so there’s an entire cast of characters, brilliant, amazing men that you’re never get to hear them speak, not on mainstream media.

Sevan Matossian (15:34):

And you know what else is interesting too? I’m not really fond of a Jew or Armenian LA culture. Armenians outside of LA are some of the greatest people I know. Armenians in la I’m like, geez, what happened to you? So some of it, it’s geographic. Same with Jews. All the Jews I know outside of LA are awesome and pleasant. So at some point I’m just like, well, fuck. It’s not Jews or Armenians. It’s fucking Los Angeles s culture.

Greg Glassman (16:00):

I’ve got too many Jews and Armenians in LA that I have just hold in my highest regard.

Sevan Matossian (16:05):


Greg Glassman (16:05):

I do the same thing with the Mormons too. I’ve got a long list of Mormons that I just love to death

Sevan Matossian (16:12):


Greg Glassman (16:12):

People can hate on ’em all they want. It’s not consistent with what I’ve seen.

Sevan Matossian (16:18):

Hey dude, is that aircraft carrier? They deployed to the Mediterranean. I guess Caleb was helping clarify for me a little bit that we were trying to figure out if it’s really been deployed to the Mediterranean. I was trying to understand the vernacular, and if I understood Caleb, right, he’s like, well, that is their turf, right? So if something goes down, go, that’s the aircraft carrier that goes over there. Anyway, I was trying to figure out, can we say that we’ve deployed 5,000 men to that area now and also are there seals in delta force on that boat? Is that a really bad sign for anyone? All bad guys over there

Greg Glassman (16:53):

Who steps in next in with what do we do when Iran launches a thousand effective missiles on Israel? What happens then?

Sevan Matossian (17:06):

That’s the boat. Jesus Criminey

Greg Glassman (17:09):

Just one of them. And my thought is that Israel needs to declare war on not just Hamas, but on Iran. On Iran. Some of that asked me what I do. I said, where I bid net Yahoo. Now let’s just look. No one’s ever going to put me in charge of a country, right? So don’t worry, don’t get your panties in a bunch.

Sevan Matossian (17:37):

I know 183 people who would vote for you,

Greg Glassman (17:41):

And I am hawkish by my very nature, but I told Jimmy and Emily in a text where I did the Yahoo. I would destroy Iran’s capacity to produce oil and eliminate their navy and air force and encourage the army to mount to coup or be next.

Sevan Matossian (17:57):

Oh, so just do some of the periphery work and then let there cause a civil war there.

Greg Glassman (18:06):

I’d take ’em out of the oil business permanently and I would get rid of the, or at least until there was an opportunity to rebuild that we sanctioned and I would get rid of their navy and their air force. And I understand it. If you sink a navy and crippling air force that the who’s ever in charge of the ground forces finds that extremely illuminating and let the army take it to the moon. But you know what? The Iranians deserve a better leadership. Persians are a wonderful, proud and amazing people, and they desperately, this is a perfect opportunity and we can solve this nuclear problem too. At the same time, tell the general in the army that, Hey, you’re going to be the guy. We’re going to have a military leadership. We’re going to dismantle your nuclear program and we’re going to help you back into the oil business again and you’re going to be a wealthy, proud people and you’ll have elections in

Caleb Beaver (19:06):

Two years. I think we tried that and then

Greg Glassman (19:09):

With the election thing, yeah,

Caleb Beaver (19:11):

I think we attempted to make it a democratic nation probably in the eighties or the seventies. And it just the tribal actions,

Greg Glassman (19:19):

That’s what happened. That’s what happened to raise to the shop who he wanted to develop a petrochemical industry so he could develop a full functional economy before the oil was gone, and they had some growing pains, but this was also the period of, it was gene kirkpatrick’s dictatorships and double standards, and she says they go from a totalitarian to an authoritarian to a democratic regime historically takes five to 800 years, and then if you force the process on authoritarians, you end up with totalitarians. Are we better off without Saddam saying No? No. Would you agree? I mean,

Sevan Matossian (20:02):

Right. Right.

Caleb Beaver (20:05):

No, I don’t think so either. It’s the Hydra thing. As soon as you cut off one head, another tribal leader’s going to come out and they’re going to try to do the same thing. Now you’ve got a thousand people from a thousand Palestinians who’ve got together and said, yeah, let’s fuck up Israel. It’s just one thing after another. It’s the same ideology essentially.

Greg Glassman (20:23):

Yeah. I would treat Hamas as agents of Iran and I would punish Iran and I would slaughter every card carrying member of Hamas, all of them. All of ’em. Hunt ’em down and kill him. Much like I with a school shooter. These are school shooters.

Sevan Matossian (20:46):

It’s a school

Greg Glassman (20:47):

Shooter culture.

Sevan Matossian (20:49):

Wow. Greg. Yesterday I ran into our friend who six five wealthy

Greg Glassman (20:57):


Sevan Matossian (20:59):

He has a daughter who has a full ride scholarship to Columbia. Another daughter has a full ride to Stanford. He’s a Nigerian immigrant, blacker than the bottom of my screen there. Great dude. Very good friend of both mine and Greg’s. I hung out with him at the coffee shop yesterday and he said, Hey, dude, don’t be fucking fooled. This is just another money laundering operation. No, this is all planned at some level. Do you agree with that? What’s

Greg Glassman (21:32):

Going on in Israel?

Sevan Matossian (21:33):

Yeah, that it’s basically just another, on the big level, it’s just moving money around. Again,

Caleb Beaver (21:39):


Sevan Matossian (21:41):

Buying weapons, selling weapons, just moving money around.

Caleb Beaver (21:44):

I mean, we just released 6 billion to Iran in assets. We just unfroze 6 billion in assets to them. I’m pretty sure they’re the ones supplying a lot of this stuff to the Palestinians

Greg Glassman (22:01):

And the rockets to Hezbollah in the north.

Sevan Matossian (22:07):

Oh, look at this. Speaking of fucking Whackadoodles j Wade, any thoughts on Andy Stump and Craig Patterson podcast? Look forward each week to listening to both of your insights. Great. Get your booster. I can’t believe Craig Patterson’s still alive.

Greg Glassman (22:25):

It’d be fun to talk to Andy. You could recount some good times.

Sevan Matossian (22:32):


Greg Glassman (22:34):

When I hired a real pilot and he sabotaged the airplane, you were there for that.

Sevan Matossian (22:38):

I was there for that.

Greg Glassman (22:40):

Or when he used my credit card and bought a

Caleb Beaver (22:43):


Sevan Matossian (22:48):

Dildo, we captured Saddam and Bin Laden after they were hiding in holes, we realized there will always be someone else to take down. It will never end. Tom’s Sadderly a Mogadishu veteran.

Greg Glassman (22:59):

Yeah. What you do is that, what’s the line? He’s a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch and you decapitate and the new guy’s like, you know what, I’m going to do the same thing except fuck with him. I know how I got here. The last guy got sideways with the US and they cut his head off, and now I’m the new guy. I don’t think I want to be sideways with the us. I’ll do everything else. I’ll be just the same except for that, and that’s an improvement for us. And provide security.

Sevan Matossian (23:35):

Hey, if they start showing those executions publicly, that’s going to be a bad PR move. Right.

Greg Glassman (23:43):

The numbers on this, this was eightfold on a per capita basis, the damage inflicted on Israel in terms of head count is eightfold. Our nine 11.

Sevan Matossian (23:54):

Say that one more time.

Greg Glassman (23:56):

Eight x nine 11 on a per capita basis.

Sevan Matossian (23:59):

Oh, and the stories point out of there on social media are kind of crazy. The media coming out of this is absolutely nuts. What do you think about that? Also, it’s like someone said, Hey, the Ukrainian war has been going on a year and we’ve already seen more images from Israel than we’ve seen the entire Ukrainian war. I mean, the social media shit coming out on Israel is nuts. That’s the kind of stuff that gets my brain thinking like, okay, is this planned? Literally, they’re showing the gunfights. They’re showing the Palestinians walking into the kibbutz and killing people, start lighting their homes on fire, eating the food out of their fridge, all that shit.

Greg Glassman (24:43):

Yeah, let’s don’t lump ’em all together. This is Hamas and what’s guys,

Sevan Matossian (24:48):

Thank you, Hamas.

Greg Glassman (24:48):

Thank you. They’ve come into houses and slaughtered the people there and filmed it with their iPhones and put it on their social media for their family to see. Whereas my grandma, they just killed her. I know, because I saw it on her Facebook page.

Sevan Matossian (25:04):


Caleb Beaver (25:08):

I’ve heard they’ve been taking people’s phones and texting their loved ones from the person. After they’ve captured a person, they’ll take their phone and text their loved ones like We have your sister or whatever.

Greg Glassman (25:17):

Yeah. And posting images of the dead bodies. Bodies on the Facebook page belonging to the victim. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (25:29):

Fiona H Oh my God. Delete that person from your lifeson who said, money laundering. That’s so disgusting. Hey, man, 40 children had their heads cut off. Money laundering. Oh my God. What a delusional person. I don’t agree with you at all. It can be both. You can do all of those. It’s to incite a situation where money laundering is easy to do. There’s crazy people out there, man.

Greg Glassman (25:51):

I don’t think money laundering is the right term somehow, but I did meet someone in this vein. I met a Croatian who said that every time Americans need have a skilled or semi-skilled labor shortage of major war breaks out somewhere in the world. Look, I do know that the people that at Raytheon, t r w, Grumman, Teledyne, Boeing, I know these are boon times for them and they’re getting to sell and test equipment, and I have mixed feelings on that. I would probably be willing to test a lot of things. That new missile that the Britts gave to the Ukrainians that dropped the building where the meeting was going on, that worked better than anyone thought it would. The British are really impressed. Very much surprised. Yeah. Test this shit out on these scumbags.

Sevan Matossian (27:04):

Heidi Krum, please. Heidi. Don’t incite violence bottle. What vittorio, anyone who thinks money isn’t exchanged in a time of conflict is naive. Hey, racism’s been like this huge subject. I mean, I guess for our whole forever, I dunno my whole life, but look at this. I’ve never seen anything like this. Look at this. This is in Australia at the Opera House, and they’re chanting gas, the Jews, and fuck the Jews. And so I started putting other people’s I’ve never seen, have you ever seen anything like this in the United States? Fuck the Armenians. Fuck the Chinese. Fuck the blacks. This is crazy. A gathering of people that’s chanting gas. The Jews. You ever seen anything like that in the States? No. I think

Caleb Beaver (28:14):

They were doing that in New York too.

Sevan Matossian (28:17):

Getting together and chanting gas. A group of people, oh, sorry. Vittorio, B l m did that all summer. My bad. They didn’t just do it. They burnt down. They burnt down. Cities caved, Astro showing a little empathy. Se this is all they’ve been taught. Fair enough. I hear you. I hear you.

Greg Glassman (28:49):

And what does that mean? Is that

Sevan Matossian (28:53):

Meaning I was raised to resent a Turkey and to think that they’re horrible people because of what happened, the genocide. You know what I mean? And so you’re born, you’re born in the Middle East and you’re in Arab. And so from day one, you’re basically taught that the Jews are bad people and it becomes a part of your identity. Just like I’m Savon and my birthday’s March 16th and I CrossFit. You know what I mean? It’s almost, it would be crazy if I found out that it was actually the Armenians who killed the Turks, but we’ve seen history say crazier shit. Flip the script on crazier shit. So I think that’s what they mean. It’s all they know, right? It’s not justification. It’s an observation.

Greg Glassman (29:41):

This reminds me of after the school shootings, they’ll say, this is the kid that did it. This is how old he is who put his picture up. And then C n N was giving them a ranking. Third worst, fourth worst. Didn’t come close to the record, but he moved.
