796: Trump Moves on Executive Order While MSNBC Runs an Immigrant Telethon.

6/20/2018
More
Looks like Trump is finally caving to political pressure in the face of overwhelming backlash over his decision to prosecute all immigrants attempting to cross the border. This is a change from the Obama administration opted often for the civil action of deportation rather than prosection. In the civil action, children are allowed to stay with their parents while prosecution requires them to be separated. I talked a lot about this yesterday but I'll throw in a few more insights...

795: The Balls on the TSA

6/19/2018
More
Yeah, normally I'm more reserved but arrogance and total disregard for the traveling public by the TSA just gets my Irish up. According to Bart Johnson, who leads security for the TSA, travelers should prepare for longer wait times and more extensive screenings as summer gets into full swing. My question: Why? If you know travel is anticipated to incease by 10% why wouldn't you staff up accordingly? Open up overtime or improve the efficiency of your screening processes to ensure the...

794: Trump's New 'Space Force', Free Markets vs. Regulation and Advertising in the Digital Age

6/18/2018
More
So much to talk about today. I'm excited! First, I had an interesting ride back from the airport last night. It was the first time I'd taken a cab in years. It should come as no surprise that the experience was less than satisfying. Then, wouldn't you know it, I see an article today talking about how terrible Uber and Lyft are and how they are destroying the once proud an noble profession of taxi cab driver. I want to set the story straight and today I will **** A group of researches...

792: A Three State California is Now a Possibility

6/13/2018
More
Yes I know it's still a long shot but the question is now before the voters. If Californians decide in favor of the proposal it will start a long and contentious battle to split up the state. **** Should transgender athletes be allowed to compete against the sex of their choosing? There are a lot of people who say yes. I think you can look at it one of two ways. You can either segregate the sexes allowing for more equal competition and thus entertaining competition or you can put...

790: Why Panera Failed at Charity

6/11/2018
More
We are always talking about how private citizens and companies need to provide for the less fortunate. We disagree with the notion that the government has a responsibility to provide for the poor and the indigent. "Taxation is Theft!" we cry. But a recent experiment by Panera Bread to offer free food to anyone in need failed miserably. It was a concoction of capitalism and charity that was doomed from the beginning. The question is why? Today we'll dive into the specifics and I'll do my...

789: The Bourdain Suicide, Bernanke Blames Trump and Connecticut Outlaws For Sale Signs

6/8/2018
More
It's a crazy news day. Anthony Bourdain committed suicide last night which normally would not make my list of news stories but today is different. Being a Marine I know the effect mental illness has on people and I think we have all had a deep depression at some point. So I wanted to take a minute and share some insights from my own life that might inspire you to seek help if you're struggling. **** Ben Bernanke is now out telling everyone the next recession is coming in 2020 and it's...

788: The Value Proposition

6/7/2018
More
I'm still in Las Vegas. It's been great to get away for a few days and I just finished my presentation with my good friend Mark Green at the Real Estate Mastermind event at the Palms Casino. He and I spoke about inflation, interest rates, government shenanigans and how mortgage lenders need to change the way they do business if they want to survive and thrive as the industry changes. The truth is, all industries are changing...constantly. Your life is changing constantly. If you're not...

787: Jason Talks with Eric Brakey About His Run for US Senate

6/6/2018
More
I'm in Vegas today. I'm giving a speech tomorrow with my good friend Mark Green about how to use Real Estate as a hedge against inflation. I'll be speaking to a large group of real estate professionals and I'm going to try to drop enough knowledge on them, with enough clarity so they can go home and better advise their customers and clients. This an exciting time and the weather here is a balmy 102. :-) Today I have Eric Brakey on the show. He's running for US Senate in Maine and he's a...

786: Witness Tampering, the Eagles and a new "Constitutional Crisis" Every Day

6/5/2018
More
So, Paul Manafort's problems just went from bad to worse. Apparently, he's been contacting witnesses in his case and attempting to clarify their memory regarding certain facts of the case. Paul's in real trouble here and it looks like he's going to be spending the balance of his life in prison when this is all over. What they really want is dirt on Trump and he'd probably roll over if he had any. There is the off chance that Trump may pardon Manafort as he's leaving office but if I was...

785: Does the President Have the Power to Pardon Himself?

6/4/2018
More
I'm not going to hold you in suspense. The answer is YES! Of course he does. But that doesn't mean he can act like a King. (Not unless we let him) Today we're going to do something the mainstream doesn't feel necessary; Read the constitution. **** The Supreme Court handed down a narrow ruling regarding the Christian baker and that cake he refused to bake. Turns out the baker has some rights. Unfortunately, SCOTUS failed to address the real issue which has nothing to do with...

784: Unemployment Hits 3.8% and What You Should Be Doing During the Good Times

6/1/2018
More
Nacy Pelosi came out bashing the latest jobs numbers showing unemployment had fallen to 3.8%, the lowest number since 2000 and tied for the 1969 record low. Some people will claim the unemployment numbers are fake and we're really not doing as good as the number shows but regardless of what "M" series of data you look at unemployment is falling across the board. So what is Pelosi so upset about? She thinks all this low unemployment is bad for the middle class. Is she right? We yes, sort...

784: Libertarian Developer Jeff Carroll Talks About Taking on the State

5/31/2018

I'm out ill today. This cold will not kick, so I am re-posting this Jeff Carroll interview. Almost two years old, this episode is still a gem. I found out about Jeff through our private FB group. He'd been working on the development of a new community in North Carolina, and he shared some of his struggles with the local government. It wasn't the struggle or the corrupt governments that peaked my interest; it was the way Jeff had dealt with the problem and how he succeeded in spite of all...

783: Who protects the worker

5/30/2018
More
Not just any host could tie a story about a minimum wage to a story about a lemonade stand then tie both of those stories to a Brazilian trucker strike. But I am not just any host. So today I wanted to share some thoughts from our good friend Milton Friedman and explain why it's competition that protects the worker, not unions or the government. Enjoy!

782: What Does it Mean to be an American?

5/29/2018
More
It's an odd question. You might quickly answer it means you care about freedom and democracy. You might claim it means you care about free markets or Judeo-Christian values. But I don't think any of that is correct. Frankly, I have a hard time putting my finger on it as well. I took the time to ask a few people about it this weekend and none of them could give me a concise answer either. I know what it USED to mean to be an American and I know what many in our country believe today. But...

781: The Summit is Canceled. Was it Ever Going to Happen?

5/24/2018
More
Today the President sent a letter to the North Korean dictator informing him that the planned summit in June between the two leaders had been canceled. The president claimed it was due to recent comments made by Kim Jong Un about the joint military operation between South Korea and America. There are a lot of questions as to whether this meeting was ever going to take place. Typically these types of meetings can take more than a year to set up and certainly it would not have resulted in...

Yes - It's rare but we actually have some good news today. Congress has just passed a bill that will allow terminally ill people with no alternative to try new drugs not yet approved by the FDA. This comes down to property rights. You own your body and you ought to be able to do whatever you want with it. Shockingly there are Democrats in Washington who believe this is a bad thing because it might give people false hope. Really? Who cares! They're dying anyway. Let them have any amount...

Over the years Monsanto has continued to draw heat from farmers and citizens alike. Now Monsanto may finally pay the price for years of heavy-handed tactics and deception. DeWayne Johnson is dying and he says his cancer was caused by Roundup, a herbicide manufactured by Monsanto. In fact, there are 4000 people bringing a class action against the company claiming Monsanto deliberately covered up the risks associated with their product for decades. DeWayne hopes he can stay alive long...

Today Mike Pompeo said they are looking to impose the harshest sanctions in history on Iran. Do sanctions really work? I mean, how many times in history have we applied sanctions on a rogue totalitarian regime and got them to do what we want? Today I'll give you a list of times they say it worked and let you be the judge. *** Apparently, the Pope says it's ok to be gay. Now, I've got no issue with this, in fact, I'd love it if people would stop judging others over actions that don't...
