"atf" Discussed on GunGuyTV: A Firearms
"With these kinds of things with the current administration in washington and these kinds of roads that atf is going down. Do you see more of this coming. Yes More antigun measures in general. Yes every time you turn around you see where some anti-gun politician has proposed another bill that limits or taxes or bam's something to do with another type of firearm. So yeah it's been going on I've been gun enthusiast. Since the seventies and i remember you know the drive against saturday night specials while small handguns. I'm not even going to name some of them give somebody newfound ideas that they forgot about. But it's been constant on-going thing for several decades. I don't see it stopping anytime soon. I want to loop back to the pistol thing and the reason i want to back to it. It's something we were talking about. I think at lunch today is the idea that over the years now. Atf's has convoluted this by writing. A letter saying yeah. This part is okay and then we changed her mind. That part's not okay. This part is okay but kind of well. This part is okay but only if you make it that way those kinds of things and when an actuality you and i both know i only know it because you taught me that what we would call an air pistol has already been nfa for a very long time. I wasn't gonna go there but we are. We already know that any given time they could have called it what it was but they didn't which leads me to ask the question. Why do does atf to agents today. Atf actually know what they're talking about and if they don't why not in a short answer for the most part no. I'm going to say this. The vast majority of agents let me put it this way. There's two kinds of atf agents from my observation. When i was on the job the vast majority of them are the kind that want to catch the bad guys and they have their heart right place and wilder at it. If they get a promotion or they get some press will. That's okay too. Then you have the atf. Agents who are there to get the promotions and the press and while they're at it if they catch a bad guy. Well that's all right to that wasn't really what they were after. You have the climbers and the workers But as far as the good ones the ones that i appreciate the people who are law enforcement officers that are doing their job. How much do they know about guns very little and not because it's their fault I was on staff at. Atf's academy nine hundred ninety eight. I was there for five years and proud when i came through. Atf basic academy in one thousand nine eight which hate to give you that date but yeah it was right. Where's similar age so yeah Back in that date when you came through the atf. Academy you've got one eight hour day a firearm recognition and classification technology training..

Agent told the reload that shipman had falsely accused the black former agent of cheating on a promotion assessment because he believed the agent had done to well on a section of the examination. I couldn't believe it when it happened. The agent said but when i read about his other comments in my mind i was like that mother beep. That's what happened. he said. Hey a lot of african americans qualified to be promoted on the certification list. They must've been cheating and then he had to go and find what i happen to be. The one he found the agents had shipments complaint against him initiated a years long inspector general investigation against him in two thousand seven that sidetracked his career before exonerated him.

"atf" Discussed on Republic Keeper - with Brian O'Kelly
"And protect life so this this sense that all people have worth is what the democrats don't have and we're going to see that coming up with some of the things on critical race theory and so on be right back. You're listening to republic keeper and now republic keeper with brian. kelly s welcome back. Thanks for hanging out the The reason i opened with a very good preview of the show guys. We got the stuff from the atm Atm atf nominee. Some stuff from the senate hearings about that David shipment was nominated to be the head of the atf. And we've got stuff from hearing a lot of stuff from that we've got some Arizona audit update stuff And then a lot. On this critical race theory and race rob people being pitted against each other by the democrats. And so. that's that's kind of what we've got coming quite a bit of So sorry didn't give you a good preview but the reason. I set this up with some bible verses. I wanna make sure that this is really important. People say you can't legislate morality and that is such a lie. It is such ally. The first amendment legislates morality. It says you have the right to your own mind and you have the right to express it. And that right is given by god. And what the what we legislate is protecting your god given right right and so the right right. So the idea here is that our rights aren't given by government. They are protected by government. Governments are instituted amongst men to preserve certain inalienable rights and the rights are in alienable. That means they can't be separated from you right. And so one of those is the right to self-defence the right to defend yourself against any an all aggressors so that you protect your family and your property from any and all aggressors and the second amendment is about that includes aggressors even if the government right and so the role of the man or woman who's in charge of the bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms for the government. The gun regulator job is a pretty important job related to the second amendment so this is who this nominee is david chipman. This first clip doesn't even include. David shipman mike lee asking him a number of questions which we have an answering but mike lee sets who this guy is so well. We're gonna play the clip. It's three minutes. Thanks for hanging in there. Go ahead call. I'd like to start with you. believe senator cornyn refer briefly to well a statement that i- independently found concerning statement that you'd posted on reddit back in two thousand nineteen when you said quote while. Atf conducted studies involving people who failed background checks to determine how many later committed crimes with a gun. Many did this is a perfect opportunity to arrest people before committing crimes rather than responding after the fact quote. I find this statement very troubling especially troubling for someone who's been nominated to serve as the director bid because even setting aside from the second amendment even before you get to the second. This violates our most fundamental rules of due process talking about a desire to arrest people before committing crimes rather than after the fact. It's not our criminal. Justice system works. And if that's how you view people that is concerning to me now. This is compounded By other comments you've made to me. Reflect a certain degree of disdain toward gun owners and in particular new gun owners on april third of two thousand and twenty just over a year ago. You gave an interview with cheddar news. And you were talking about increases in gun sales especially first time gun owners who had decided to purchase a gun for the first time during the pandemic. The interview openly mocked first time gun owners Saying that they were quote more like tiger king and then advising them in a quite a mockery to hide their gun quote behind the cans of tuna and beef jerky they have stored in a cabinet and only bring that out. If the zombies start to appear most book. When i first saw this. I watched the clip. And i read the clip several times hoping that i was missing context hoping that there was something else there that would make this less troubling concerns. Me that that that you as as the nominee to be the director of the atf would have such a flippant and if i may say so utterly condescending attitude toward first time gun owners in this country i say this is a former federal prosecutor. One who worked with atf. Agents and agents for many other agencies. This this is a troubling flippant attitude. for somebody who's gonna have this agency now. You may find it interesting to learn that a survey of federal firearms licensees conducted by the national shooting. Sports foundation shows the retailers supported the highest average percent increase in sales to black americans during the first half of twenty twenty with large increases also to women and to hispanic americans and asian americans as well. So why why would you choose to insult. So many of your fellow americans with a statement like this and so the the thing that is so important about a one. You really understand if you don't already in many of you do but this attitude. David chapman expresses in those statements. Mike lee read. Keep your guns behind the cans of beef jerky and tuna. There's an attitude that you'll find with a particular brand of northeastern liberal and the attitude is that anyone who's conservative is basically.

Fidelity wants to launch a bitcoin ETF
"Fidelity becomes the latest to file for a bitcoin. Atf yes fidelity have added their hat to the ring as the sixth live etf application. I jokingly tweeted yesterday that i think the is going to have to allow one just because they get sicker reviewing them. And i don't think that's far off the wise origin. Etf has fd funds management as the sponsor with fidelity service company as the administrator and fidelity digital as custodian. Here's a fun. Easter egg as well. Alex thorn formerly of avon ventures which was a fidelity investment group. Pointed this out. He tweeted out fidelity's bitcoin. Etf is named wise origin. Why souto she in kanji means wisdom or sense. Nakamoto in kanji means base root or origin. Pretty lit if you ask me. Interestingly this wasn't the only. Etf news apparently goldman sachs also filed for notes. The pay out to an etf that may have exposure to bitcoin or cryptos. This is definitely toe dipping. Compared to what twitter excitedly reported from the start but still fidelity and sort of goldman getting in on the bitcoin. T.f game in the same day is pretty back

Episode 82: Who, and What, are Boogaloo Bois
"So the Boogaloo movement I guess has really I was going to say become coherent but it's still fairly incoherent. It's still pretty scattered and you know, it's sort of hard to generalize about it, but it became I guess an identifiable cultural and political currents really in the last year or so. It has antioxidants it home. Places that it comes from which been around for a long time. So one big source of this this Boogaloo movement ideology is fortune and their weapons board and you should also drawn I think aspects of the nineties militia movement and there are alt-right white supremacists types in involved. Although we shouldn't conflate them. But really the way I characterize it is that it is I suppose an internet native extremist libertarian movement, you know, and a lot of the times at least retire. It's an insurrectionary libertarian movement and their biggest concern. The number one concern would be the Second Amendment. So, you know, we can talk in more detail about about what what's kind of brought this about and why it's emerged as it has but I mean the things that stand out the people the things have been reported on a lot are you know, they have a particular way of birth. Blessing so the the the the Boogaloo idea refers to a kind of running joke on the internet about the sequel to The the break dancing movie called Breakers and the eighties in a sequel was called Breakers 2 Electric Boogaloo as they've picked it up is referring to the possibility of a sequel to the either the American Revolution or or or the Civil War depending on who you're talking to. So the idea is, you know Civil War Two or American Revolution 2 Electric Boogaloo. So so they're either depending on who you talk to depending on which of them took to their either preparing for that moment or the or they're kind of trying to bring it out. So there is a sort of overlap with far-right accelerationist movements to some extent and yeah, they're dead but really there there at the center of their politics is this idea that government and particularly the federal government have significantly overreached in the Rouge? Actions they've put on people's ability to own firearms and and also in the in the heavy-handed way that they've been forced that you know, and and that's according to them off. So I just want to make sure I understand cuz I've heard so many different characterizations the Boogaloo movement over the past few months when I'm hearing you say is that you may may have wage rims his views and be part of Google movement or not. You may have some insurrectionist views or not. You may be, you know, inclined to be in a militia or not. But the main thing that unites someone in the movement would be the belief that the federal government is overreaching specifically around the Second Amendment and that that is the core of the of what makes them a part of the group. I think that's certainly something that everyone in this movement shares. Yeah, I would say that to some extent, you know, it's it's a contested movement. There is interesting. Kind of contest about about what it means and and what the biggest priorities are and you know who these kind of supposedly Universal rights like the first and second amendment who they really apply to and who is who is it risk from government overreach. So there are some parts of the Mughal of movement that are at least rhetorically again supportive of the project initially at least was supportive of the protests that came about after the death of George Floyd. There was even before George Floyd The George fluid stuff happened. There were Boogaloo guys who were expressing sympathy for African Americans who were killed by police like Brianna Tyler and philando Castile who they really see some of them at least see primarily not even an American but as a as a person who is lawfully exercising their their right to bear arms and and was killed by the police in the course of that, you know, because this movement is dead. Of the idea or even committed to the idea that there may well be sort of open civil conflicts in America there. There is a an attractive opportunity there for all kinds of people on the far right including the racist far right to sort of, you know, Co-op that movement or to be a part of it push it in the direction that they want it to so, yeah, I don't I wouldn't want to cross over State I suppose that the kind of racial liberalism or whatever I've heard and then I've had analysts describe them as anti-racist and I just don't see a lot of that. There are some people like that Thursday right wing. I would say that their most mostly dissident from from mainstream conservative. They're buying like disappointed with or opposed to President Trump. There's a lot of support in the move for judge Jorgensen who's the libertarian party presidential candidate. It sounds like the disaggregated movement where there's no central figure, but I'm wondering if this month Primarily and urban group or a Suburban group or neither that's hard to pin down. I think you've always denominator location where it primarily primarily issue. It would be the internet and and you know, that's really what this movement is. It's one of our, you know, a pretty long line now of movements that have been a you know conceived of and you know disseminated online and it's really bad up with internet culture. So there's a lot of this stuff is under several layers of irony, you know, you're forced to wonder whether someone is being serious or not when they're posting about the idea that they might have a shootout with the ATF or that they might build a fully automatic machine gun. I mean, I've seen schematics and plans on Facebook in Boogaloo groups for you know, modifying weapons to make them fully automatic. But but yeah, it's an online movement and that means wage It's bound up with internet
Midnight Moment 4 - Voter ID and A Conspiracy Theory - burst 1
"Jury of Nation. Part hair and it's time for another installment of Liberty Virus via the midnight moment delivery system. that. I was night three of the Democrat National Convention Day One, hundred, sixty, fifteen days flattening curb. It allows unlucky enough to over here made me throw up in my mouth a little bit I gotta be honest with you wanted to wash the taste out with out. But. In the end, I settled for for a Nice Cup of coffee. George Carlin one said I don't have pet peeves. I have made major psychotic fucking hatreds. So in the spirit of both George Carlin and my complete total annoyance with current events, we're going to cover two topics with you. Tonight the first is a voter ID, and the second as a self developed spiracy theory that I would like your indulgence to entertain as strictly a mental exercise though in our society, there are things you. Have to show ID for buying a gun getting prescription painkillers buying alcohol buying. We'd words legal of course, a buying porn. You have to show ID at the DMV the board, an airplane to board trained drive an automobile the list goes on and on and on survivor is going to be required to do any of the above things or you know conduct adulting in any way as it always is lot why states not have a? Statute that requires valid identification busted as yourself that question for a second, you may not like the answer I mean Article One section. Four of the US Constitution states the times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and representatives shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof. But the Congress may at any time by law make or alter such regulations except as to places of choosing senator I mean there was. An assumption clearly present in our constitution that citizens right to vote is protected under free speech under the First Amendment. But in a citizen right the but I mean article two section one clearly spells out that our founders framers specified who could and couldn't be president no person except the natural born citizen or citizen of the United States at the time of this adoption of this constitution shall be eligible to the office of the president. Neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained? The age of thirty five years have fourteen years been a residence within the United States our founders and framers carved out specifics. Do you really believe they had any intention any intention at all for non citizens to vote in our elections? Give me a break. So if they're going to push the agenda and by the way I'm speaking to leftists and liberals who seem to think that showing identification at a polling place is somehow minority voter suppression Oh really then I say, well, no, I devote no idea by guns no background checks ever for anything. No idea to buy booze or weed. Or board a plane. Is it. Any wonder that liberal states have started issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants? Because if somehow some way. We restore common sense in order to our republic and require a valid form of identification vote illegal immigrants will be their voters and their voting block. I'm not suggesting we give up the right to an anonymous ballot that's absolutely protected by the First Amendment I get it. No. One has stating that your driver's license number be attached to your ballot. But. If you can't get into a bar without id if you can't buy liquor without ID, why should you be able to access the polling place? I just want to point out and make it clear the blatant outright shitting hypocrisy and quite frankly left racism in the claim that somehow requiring an idea vote is minority suppression really I mean here in Colorado most liquor stores that I frequent require id for every transaction and believe me I do not look twenty one or younger bars and nightclubs in this area often use a barcode scanners. Id and I know that it's that way in some other states, somehow all of this is okay but somehow requiring an ID to vote arguably the most violent in the world voting is minority voter Suppression Racist Bull Shit. So as the assertion that minorities by the way don't have an ID or don't have the ability or somehow incapable of getting one, I mean the bring specificity again. Zona adults over the age of eighteen are required. To carry ID at all times. That's whether you're walking down the street driving your car or otherwise, and that has been in effect since World War. Two, this is not something new. This is not something that the Clintons or the bushes or anyone else do any time in recent history this has been the law of the land for literally decades. Whether that laws right or wrong as up to you. But really do we really need any more outside influence in our country regardless of what the political spectrum you stand on our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this break.

A conspiracy theory I fully admit it. I have no evidence of this except what may be going on around us and some thoughts that I have from the Golden Age of talk, radio in the nineties I sometimes get what I refer to as nuggets of Universal Truth from what most people would consider fairly odd sources. You know movies, songs, sports, overhearing pieces of a conversation, etc one of the things that was kind of profound to me and rain true didn't I didn't really understand the time was the movie captain America the Winter Soldier. Now there's a scene again. Tomorrow will because they're fantastic and I'm going to kind of summarize here there's a scene where they're in a bucket in they're talking to basically an all German scientists. Brain is good put on on a computer and all creepy but isn't that scene they talk about humanity's freedom came. and. One of the things that they said was if you try to take that freedom, they resist humanity needed to surrender. It's freedom willingly. And they finally created a world. So chaotic that you vanity was ready to surrender it's freedom for its own security. Now I know that sounds bizarre and maybe I'm maybe I'm just being paranoid maybe I'm suffering from the Kobe. Kobe lockdown paranoia or whatever you want to call it. The understand this if you wanted to usher in a gestapo-type National Police Force. It had no loyalty to the constitution but only the politicians you know Kinda like Nazi Germany. What would you do? Well. First of all, you'd have to get the police to quit. So if you control the purse strings for the police, department what better way to get them to quit than it, cut their wages, cut their budget and then make them liable for I. Don't know everything. What if he told them to stand down while like Portland Eighty. Three nights of rioting destroys property assaulting assaulting citizens decade the police to quit what about like new? York. They cut the budget of Major Crimes Unit and shootings have gone up. To three hundred percent. Since that happened now, I wanNA make it clear that I do not support a national police force now. Yes we can argue that yes, we have we have federal agents the DA's the ATF the FBI etc. But none of them are actively patrolling the streets but how do you do it? How do you implement a Gestapo of social justice warriors that are essentially thought police, which is what the what's the leftist seem to want anyone that that goes contrary to their narrative anyone that disagrees with any they say politically. Well if you get all the local cops to quit, you have to have something because your citizens will not bag. For protection somebody did is friendly to that idea wins the White House than the Federal Police Force. Is created and then we end up like Nazi Germany. They're already talking about making kids where buttons identified that they either have or have not been vaccinated for Covid. Nineteen. One. Just go out and do yellow stars. Pink triangles.

"It was January nineteen, seventy four, the future was bright or so I thought. I had just completed my formal education after returning from Vietnam. Only twenty two months earlier. I was ready and anxious to land a job flying for American Delta Eastern or United Airlines. My timing couldn't have been worse. The country was in the middle of what we were calling a fuel crisis. The airlines were not expanding. With no immediate job prospects I decided, it would be a good time to pursue my airline transport rating later changed to airline transport pilot or ATP. Raleigh. Durham aviation offered ATP training, and was also assessment dealer. So I trained in a brand new Cessna three, ten q immediately after my check ride, the airplane was sold to a business in Richland's Virginia. A day or two. Later, the salesman who sold the three ten called and asked me if I would be interested in a job flying a beach baron for a business also based in Richmond. Virginia, the pilot currently flying the baron was going to work for the company that had just bought the three ten. I said I was interested. So he told me to catch an early flight the next day to Tri Cities Tennessee where the pilot leaving the job flying the baron would meet me. I arrived early the next morning. The pilot from Richland's was a nice guy, a couple of years older than me. He had come to the United States to attend flight school and build flight experience with plans to return to Denmark and fly for the country's airline. We departed tri cities with me at the controls and headed for. RICHLAND's I. had not taken the time to familiarize myself to the area. So I simply followed his instructions. Arriving over richland's a short time. Later, he advised me to begin my descent and start a teardrop turn to the right. He explained that we had just passed over the town of Richland's. He knew that because he had tuned in the AM radio station located in downtown Richland's on the ATF. He said I needed to maintain a seven hundred and fifty feet per minute descent while turning. As we entered the clouds, he told me to tighten the turn. I was already in a standard rate turn, but I complied, and we soon broke out of the clouds at about a thousand feet above the ground with the small town of Richland's in front of us. That's when it dawned on me. We had just descended between two ridge lines and into valley. I asked the pilot if you regularly flew into and out of Richland's using this method and he said, he did he told me, it was no big deal. Just crossed the AM radio station on a heading of zero, three zero degrees and descend at a rate of seven hundred and fifty feet per minute while making a teardrop turn to the right. At greater than standard rate right I added. I learned the owner of the Baron had grown accustomed to operating out of Richland's even at night as long as ceilings were at least a thousand feet, not me. Once on the ground, the pilot wished me luck and departed around five PM. The lobby erupted two men and two women entered walking fast with the guy in the lead talking loudly. As. They entered the guy in the lead. Saw Me and said you must be the pilot from Raleigh. I acknowledge that I was So he said file for Merritt Island Florida and let's get going. I filed an I F, our flight plan, and we were soon off the ground. The owner sat up in front with me, which was fine until he reached up and retarded the throttles right after breaking ground. I, put my hand up to stop him. But he had already pulled them back to climb power. He informed me the engines would last longer if we didn't keep them at full power so long. I told him. I had learned most engine failures occur at first power reduction. So I preferred to wait until reaching a couple of hundred feet before reducing to climb power. It was certainly a debatable point and it was his airplane. So nothing else was set. We landed in. Merritt Island Florida at about eight thirty PM, I was looking forward to getting to a hotel and kicking back, but it was not to be while taxiing into the F. B. O., the owner said, okay. Go back to Richland's and pick up three guys that will be waiting for you and bring them down here. I was stunned. It was at that moment I decided I would not be taking this job. I thought I would do. As he asked knowing, this would be the last time I would be subjected to him. I refilled the airplane filed an Afar flight plan for Bluefield West, Virginia and took off heading north. Bloomfield was the closest airport to Richland's with instrument approach if the weather was good. Enough. I. Would cancel the I. Afar Flight Plan and fly visually to the desired destination. Not Tonight. The weather at the destination wasn't too bad. But it would be late and I would be tired. So I called ahead and told my passengers to meet me in Bluefield. It was a little after midnight when I arrived the weather wasn't too bad. But bad enough to require an instrument approach. I was glad I made the decision to meet my passengers in Bluefield. Putting on fuel and filing an IOF, our flight plan back to Merritt. Island took only a half hour or so and my excited and well lube passengers and I were off for the final flight of the day. After takeoff. The Tower released me to departure control about the time I entered the clouds. A minute or two after contacting departure control? I lost communications. All engine navigation instruments were working fine. Everything was good except my communication radios, I turn them off and back on. I, check the circuit breakers. No good. I. Couldn't hear the controllers and I presumed they couldn't hear me. My clearance was to expect nine thousand feet, ten minutes after departure. So ten minutes into the flight, I climbed to nine thousand feet from my initially assigned altitude. I had already changed my transponder to squawk seventy, six hundred when the radio suddenly started working after a couple of hours, I contacted Jacksonville Center and was asked twice who I was. Later that day I briefed the owner about the radio problem. He said I could take the airplane to Daytona and have it repaired which I did. After two days in Merritt, island, I flew the owner and three others back to Richland's Virginia. I rode with the owner to his office and he informed me how much he was going to pay me to fly for him. I, told him. I wouldn't be taking the job. He paid me for my time. Reimbursed me for my airline flight and had me driven to Tri Cities Airport for my flight back to Raleigh. Sadly. The story doesn't end there. A. Couple of weeks. Later, I got a call from the salesman who had sold the Cessna three ten. He told me the Danish pilot with four passengers aboard had flown the new three ten into the side of a mountain, just outside of Richland's.

Are We Experiencing a Black Swan Event?
"This is a trick question. I have to ask you okay. You know what the standard pitch in from people on the world's go to school get a job work hard save money get out of debt. Invest long-term above their festival portfolios talks wants which avoids. Atf's so if you're a financial planner and you've been telling people for the last thirty thousand years. Invest along term and the well diversified portfolios stocks bonds mutual funds and. Don't worry you know the market's always bounce back by the dip is going to be probably a V bottom which means it goes down and comes right back up or a w goes up down and then back up again which it has done over the last. Let's say fifty years so if you're a financial planner and your clients are calling you and you've given them that advise of invested a long-term well-diversified for pulling the plug mutual funds. What do you say to them today? Harry well I I say a financial adviser is going to be more hated than I am. That were passing the end. Up this bubble booms When it happens and and that is true most of the time. But what my work shows and clear the bell clears your heartbeat. Every second generational booms come about every forty years technology surges every forty five and then big bubbles every ninety years when you get east. T- turning points like the late sixties and stocks or the late the roaring nineteen twenty nine stocks or now stocked. Go Down Robert. And they don't get back to those levels for twenty three to twenty five years. I think this time with slowing demographics and the US we may never see the dow higher adjusted for inflation than it is recently so this is not the time to sit through it these type of long-term corrections or crashes after bubbles. They're going to be seventy to ninety percent like twenty nine to thirty two that by the way not small-cap stocks or penny stocks blue chip leading stocks like General Motors Ford and RCA. Back then went down. Eighty nine percent. The Dow and two point seven years can talk until nineteen fifty three twenty four years later to get back to even so when a stockbroker tells you that doesn't understand history. Harry hang on you got to take a breath and so what Harry is saying. Nineteen twenty nine with a crash came if you are holding waiting for the market to come back so in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine dollars at three eighty one. It took approximately twenty four to twenty five years to get back to three eighty one and when I was a kid nineteen fifties when I was growing up most of the people who are part of the Great Depression my parents and the people who are pounded by the Great Depression and the stock market crash. They were never in stocks there so gun shy of stocks and then in my generation the baby boom generation that brought back the Sangala 401k defined contribution pension plans and all this at the stock market took off so the baby boomers are caught pro with the proverbial pants down and now comes the next big crash. Which you've been forecasting for a long time airy so what you're saying. This one might be a long one. Yes because this is the culmination not only of the baby. Boom gigantic is your heading the largest generation history and it wasn't just. Us hit globally to to grow up in earnest. Money which is totally predictable. Average person peaks in forty six for the baby boomers and spending forty seven for the millennials today and then and then decline so. We started to see that declined to name her. This is a rich audience. Like me a little slow. We gotta speak a little slower. So what you're saying. Is that when a person hits forty six? That's when they're at the peak. Earning and spending and millennials is forty. Seven is that what you're saying. Yes the average. The average person for more fluent people college educated professionals. It's more like in the mid fifties but still average forty six so baby boomers if that peak collectively in two thousand seven something. I predicted like twenty some years before that. And we've been just what we went down big big crisis worst since the Great Depression but not as bad because they printed so much money to stop it and we've been living on quantitative easing ever since to make up for these slow down in this generation spending. That's simple and we're not coming out so let me so. Let me go back again. So let's talk to you. Know My generation. The boomers you know. What would you say to them? If they bought that they drank the KOOL aid. Let's say they have a 401k on IRA one of those things are Roth IRA. They've they've they've seen their portfolio per se. Go Up and now it's crashing. What advice do you have for them? I mean how do they do? They stay in or they exit. We don't give advice rich TAB. I WanNa hear your advice. No you get the hell out period. I think he may have one more. Little run left could be a couple of months. Could be a couple of weeks because the feds pumping in more money than ever with the Repo crisis and now the Krahn advisors but I think this is the death knell for the stock market. They can print money to stop. A recession stopped banks from failing companies from failing even stocks from crashing too much normally. But they can't stop this virus from spreading and it just kills business businesses. Stop people stop. Traveling people start stop spending. I mean my wife's not going to a of of women stay over tomorrow night. They're all coming in from New York you know. And she's you know she made the virus and she's over sixty like I am and that's what it hit. Its old people like you said earlier. So so this is something. They can't buy with money printing. They have kept this following far beyond when it should've peaked in two thousand seven and now they've got something that this doesn't work on so I think this is it so you have to get out of the way so Harry. I was talking to this young guy. He was He's a laborer. Was Painting parts of my house and he says you know. I bought a house like you told me to back in two thousand eleven you bought it for like I think hundred thousand and the reason round numbers and now it's three hundred thousand and he has no retirement is what should I do. I said I saw my house I went. I don't once again ladies and gentlemen at Rich Dad. We don't give financial advice and I definitely couldn't advise US guys. Only forty got three kids. He's got a job. Painting houses got no snow stocks. You and I are calling for twenty five year possible. Depression long-term deflation. What do you say to people what you because if he sells he sells his house? I sit where do you go? What are you going to do with that money? Let's say you have two hundred thousand dollars. I gotTa Pay Capital Gains Tax on it. What are you GONNA do any? He was clueless. I I got some simple rules Robert. I had become a bubble experts since the tech bubble crashed and early. Two thousand on top of demographics and technology and all these psycho because we are in a bubble era and the last bubble era we saw the roaring twenties. So nobody's lived in a bubble before and real estate was not the bubble back then. Because you couldn't borrow money so easily against housing back is very difficult so now. It's everything the rule for. Housing is real quick bubbles. Go back to where they started that that house if he bought it at the bottom of one hundred eleven and now it's worth three hundred K. My rough estimate is going to go back to near that level if he's comfortable sitting through one hundred eighty nine thousand potential decline in something he probably has a mortgage against maybe some home equity lines that he went on deck that fine. I think anybody with any brains would say oh no. I don't want to sit through that one in by the way The demographics I've got a new real estate model. That doesn't just project peak spending like other consumer categories. I have to subtract the dyers and guess what baby boomers are now dying unprecedented rates and will continue to do so into two thousand thirty nine or forty that takes down the net demand even takes it negative at some point for real estate so homes are never gonNA appreciate like they did this boom even in the next boom so it's better especially older. People who retiring lot of baby boomers are realizing they didn't say per retirement. 'cause they're living in good times thought they didn't need to and now they're saying. Oh wait a minute though might make mansion which I don't need now that my kids are gone. I can sell that instantly. Fund my retirement plan and rent my retirement home. I think that's really excellent vice. Do that
Recession. Recession? Recession!
"Guess the bottom line is and this is not going to be news to anyone. Things are pretty bad and they're going to get worse before they get better and I hate that. I sound like authorizer here because of that. Not My role on this podcast. That is your job Bro. And I'm very mad about having to take off. Take it on sorry about that too but desperate times call for desperate measures or something like that so let me just start a little bit about recession. So at this point we are. I would say almost definitely at the doorstep of a recession if not already in one and some folks already saying we are Bank of America. Just this past Thursday said that we are and just to give you an idea of what they're projecting that They're projecting that this quarter the second quarter of two thousand twenty that the economy will shrink anywhere from six and a half percent to maybe as high as fifteen percent. Give you an idea of where that falls. Historically the worst quarter quarterly drop in the last since World War. Two was maybe ten percent and I think that was in the fifties. The worst quarter during the great recession was eight percent so if we go above ten percent it'll be the worst quarterly drop now. A lot of people think that the definition of a recession is two quarters of declining economic output. That's actually not true. The folks who actually decided whether we have a recession or not or whether we are in a recession it's an organization called the National Bureau of Economic Research the NBA are. It's basically the Organization of like fourteen. Hundred economists and academics. They're the folks who say when a recession begins whether we're in one and when it ends here's part of their official definition it's quote a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy lasting more than a few months normally visible in real GDP real income employment industrial production and wholesale retail sales and quote. So if you look at all those things pretty much all of those are going to drop or not already dropping so many people think a recession is already in the bag. So what does that mean well just to give you an idea of historically what how many times we've had a recession the NBA does have stats back to the eighteen fifty S. We've had thirty three recessions on average. We have one every four point nine years. It's been eleven years since we've had one so certain degree or kind of do on average they last seventeen and a half months. But if you look at the recessions from the past fifty years. They've actually been shorter. They last about a year. What happens to the stock market? Well actually we've already seen it. During a recession. The stock market drops anywhere from twenty forty to fifty percent on average thirty five percent. As of this taping. The five hundred is down thirty percent already from February nineteenth. So it's possible that the worst is behind us. I'm sort of banking on that myself. Personally the thing to how do you mean your banking on that personally that the worst is behind us? Well because I. I'm putting the cash that I have slowly back into the market. Okay so every major down day I've bought either companies or ATF's leading up to this point. Maybe a few years ago I stopped reinvesting the dividends on my stocks so that I could let cash accumulate just the other day I reverse that so now. I'm reinvesting all my dividends so that I can gradually by and that's an important thing to do now because the end of March beginning of April is a new quarter and that's a lot of companies. Do pay their dividends. So if you need cash don't do that. Stop investing the dividends but if you WANNA weigh to gradually move into the market make sure reinvesting your dividends and for many discount brokers. You have to actively do that. The default is not dividend reinvestment. So that's just a little something there are you saying that and I know you're you're not we're not in the business of calling bottoms but are you saying that you think the worst is over no okay. That's absolutely absolutely I don't think so either. Everybody sound like you're like it's time to hop into the market right now but so let me give you this. One thing. That's important to know about how the stock market reacts with recession so stock markets a leading indicator at ten stormy. Go start going down six months before the recession and it starts to bottom six months after the recession has started. This is a whole different story every time every time I would say every recession every bear market is slightly different and this one is extraordinary right. It's the fastest time we've ever had from going from the peak of a bull market to bear market. We've never had a global pandemic like this that is affecting the stock market. You could if you wanted to look back and to the one thousand nine hundred nineteen Spanish flu but things are so different now. I'm not sure you can correlate today's stock market stocks doing that but regardless I think things are sped up so like I said. Usually the stock market starts to fall six months before a recession. But this one happened so fast. I don't think the stock market didn't have the time it's and it's certainly possible that the stock market will rebound faster this time to. I don't know if it will but if you wait until the recession is over to get back in the market you're gonNA miss a lot of the recovery. So that's why I'm just gradually moving into the market at this point so generally speaking historically looking back to the fifties it takes about one and a half years or so for the market to go down and come back up again to reach its peak but if you stress that out to back to the nineteen twenty s including the Great Depression bear markets last about three to four years for it to go down and come back up again and the to bear markets. Where you had this century they last. It took more than five years for the stock market. So that all goes back to that classic foolish line. Any money you need in the next thirty five years should be in cash. Few other things that happened during a recession rates. Go down bonds go up safe bonds go on so mostly treasuries if you have an corporate bonds if you've had any junk bonds you've seen actually your bonds go down a little bit but still. They held up better than stocks. Inflation goes up on historically during a recession and goes up two and a half percentage points during the Great Recession. It doubled from five percent ten percent. This one is going to be extraordinary. I think you're going to see unemployment certainly over ten percent. How long will that last? I don't know but I think we're going to see very high unemployment very

"Now. But we're actually looking at them and the way to buy rather than buying individual preferreds is there's an ETF called the I shares u s preferred stock the symbolist P as in Peter f f P f f and it yields right now, you know, even though it was down last year. It was down about five percent for the year. It's it's yielding right now about six percent six point three percent. Now, there's risks that comes with that. And basically with with preferred stocks if if we have a big change on long-term rates because most. The preferred they don't have any maturity dates am, basically, they're they're they just live on and on and on. But the issuers. They can redeem shares of preferred at face value usually five years after the after they've been issued. So some preferred, you know, some preferreds are down over the last eighteen months as much as twenty percent. So we're actually almost looking at preferreds is is an opportunity these are beaten up. So the ATF is the I shares u s preferred stock P F F in if you wanna close then one there's one that's trading at a pretty good discount right now. The new Wien preferred income securities J P as in Peter s in steep, and that's yielding eight percent now don't buy because of the yield don't buy either these because of the yield look at the risk. And that's that's literally trading closed. Securities trade at discounts, and that's trading at a six. Percent discount. So long winded answer on preferred. But they if you wanna take something like five percent. I don't see anything wrong with that at these levels. Okay. Great. And then my minimum.

"That is anybody that's not concerned about the ATF, reversing course on their dot ban. Owns a brace for an fifteen pistol. Should they concern? Because if they can change course on one. I'll speculate that a lot more people on braces for fifteen pistol Bandou bump stocks, but just. They can do that as well. Well, you know, that's an interesting point because the pistol brace for the A R that was okay with a letter from ATF as was the bump stock, and then their position today is yes, we did issue a letter on bump stock. Instead, they're they're quite legal and not a problem in. You know, what we were probably wrong when we did that.

Don't sell them, you know, just ignore it for right now because he sounded absolutely certain that he could get this thing reversed. I was listening, and I hope he's right. But for anyone anyone that I know the box stock is sort of a novelty, but if we let this stand it will embolden the ATS ability to change their mind on things, and I just think braces are a lot bigger deal inbox stocks.
