"Christian women. Amy Cockney Barrett. Success is personal. I don't I don't know why you need to be a Christian woman. To take this personally, I don't know why The New York Times needs to point out Christian women. Specifically on this. Judge. Barrett is a new kind of icon. For some one they have not seen before. In American culture and political life is not the case. I mean, I have a prediction about this, and I'm going to share my prediction and because I don't usually give predictions. As you know, I try to put a moratorium on the whole prognostication thing. It's not my job to tell you what I think is gonna happen. It's my job to tell you what did happened, why it happened, what it means and most importantly, why it matters to you and you tell me why it matters to you. And that's how we have a conversation every day. But I do have a prediction about what's going to happen here with Judge Amy Cockney Barrett not share it with you in a moment. But it is fed by this reaction that I saw over the last three days. Listen, we just talked with Andrew Grossman about her track record as a judge. You didn't hear that conversation very much. They went after her personally, the fact that she has seven kids, the fact that she has deeply held religious beliefs. The fact that she adopted to this was so despicable going after her for adopting two Children from Haiti that in some way that's a sign of her white racist colonial attitude. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. White racist colonizers would adopt black Children to take them out of their savage ways. Said this guy it, Bram. Ex candy He calls himself Dr Abram on Twitter. By the way, I look every doctor that insists that they're called doctor. Couldn't give you CPR. If you were having a heart attack couldn't fix a broken leg. Couldn't take a splinter out of your finger yet. They're the ones who insists on you calling them doctor. He even calls his Twitter handle. Is d r E Bram Doc? Okay, doctor. Perfect county just paid this guy $20,000 for a one hour zoom talk. About his book about anti racism. He looked through every shoot everything through the prism of race, which, of course, makes him a hero. Because he does the opposite of what? Martin Luther King implored US two D'oh. Forget about judging people by the content of their character, and you must be judged if you try to remove a person's skin color from the equation with when I stand up and say, I'm sorry the pigment of your skin does not tell me who you are is a human being that is now considered racist. Thanks to the people like Dr Braam. Bram ex knd, which isn't even his real name. When you actually say it doesn't matter to me if you're Asian, that doesn't tell me who you are. What your character is it didn't no, no, no. You understand. You cannot separate the two. I am who I am, because I am white, according to this doctor So he gets paid $20,000 by Fairfax County Public school system because they got an extra 20,000 laying around for a Zuba. Imagine sitting at your home, flipping on your lip laptop for an hour and talking and making 20 grand But he does the diversity training an anti racism presentations that Fairfax County pays for. And this guy goes after Amy Cockney Barrett. Because she adopted two black Children and saved them from hated. They were going to die. Like so many other Haitian Children who died after that earthquake. And that is now a sign of racism better than the child grew up in poverty and and an orphan. Then be adopted by white parents. This's why, and by the way, if you are, if you are a parent who has adopted overseas, I would love for you to lunger wisdom to this a triple 86 30 to because I know I know how many parents and also if you're a foster parent, I'm friends with foster parents. Who it It was an enormous A burden. I mean, an unbelievable morass of bureaucracy and red tape for them to adopt their foster Children that they had these foster Children knew them as parents for many years, they had fostered them as young mothers because their mother was an addict and in and out of jail. And so these Children were put into the foster care system. My friends ended up being their foster parents. Now God bless him, and I don't want to draw any attention because I don't want to get any trouble. Was there trying to live a life of anonymity right now because of this, but they are white. And they adopted these black Children. And now, according to Dr Braam ex candy that's a sign of racist colonialism. The fact that they attacked her for all of this. Her faith, her number of Children. The fact that she's going to be a mom working these long hours while raising school age Children. Are you kidding me? Feminists are making that argument now, so it's held against you. In the professional world by other women. If you are the mother of school age Children, boss, he couldn't get this promotion. I mean, she has school age Children. What is this mad men? And of course, that criticism is that coming from women who don't have Children. And they resent a woman like any Cockney Barrett, who has been able to do it all. And raised by the way, the reason that she's been able to do it all because she stayed married to an incredible husband. Has been a real partner to her. And this is the goal that we should all be striving for. I would think The reason why they protect her and all these other things is because they can't touch her brilliance. They can't touch her intelligence. They can touch her record. They can't touch her Bonified to be on the court, so they're going after all the other things. And if you are, if you are a parent who has adopted Children, I would love for you to share your story about how how nearly impossible it is to adopt here in the United States of America, especially if you are a different race than the Children you're trying to adopt. Why is it we have so many white parents who have adopted overseas either in Latin America or Russia. Remember, there's a big Russian adoption boom for awhile there. Haitian Children's Yes. Dominican Children, Chinese Children, Korean Children. Why? Why? Imagine how wonderful it would be if we actually had a robust and popular and celebrated and honored about abortion. Excuse me Adoption culture here in America. Where it was celebrated to adopt. And more importantly, it was celebrated to put your Children up for adoption and that you were heroic for doing so. Both sides of the adoption equation in this country should be celebrated as the heroes. They are the mothers who put their Children up for adoption and the parents who adopt those Children. That should be that should be celebrated. And instead, it's it's frowned upon its looked down on its disparaged. It's hush hush tits. There are road blocks, social workers put roadblocks in the way of parents being able to adopt You ask anybody how hard it is to adopt in this country. There's a reason for it. Because every child that is adopted in this country is one shall that was not aborted. Fact. And there is political force behind abortion in this country and not behind adoption. Every single Democrat whose whose mantra when they were running for office as a pro abortion candidate, going all the way back to Hillary Clinton, by the way, would always used the same language they used to, Then you use this anymore. Don't use this language anymore, which is telling how evil this discussion has shifted in this country, but they always used to use the same language. We want abortion to be safe, legal and rare, safe, legal and rare and nobody in journalism in media whatever. Challenge them on this and say, You've been in politics for 20 years and you've been saying you want to make abortion safe, legal and rare. Can you please tell me what exactly? You've done? What policies you put forward. What efforts you personally put through. To make abortion rare in this country. What have you done? How have you tried to make abortion rare and they had no answer because you don't raise money off that? So now they're going after her for adopting And I would love to hear from you if if you are an adoptive parent, or if you're a child of adoption, how you respond to this attack? It is despicable. I'd love for you to give voice to that 86309625, which leads me to my prediction. Everybody has been telling.

S. history going back to the that the crash of nineteen twenty nine is about thirty eight percent so we're not even at the average yet okay all right so we've certainly seen that before and I will say most bear markets have tended to play out over a longer period of time so for example the dot com crash started in March of two thousand and then of course in the middle of that bear market you had nine eleven that was a long downturn at downturn lasted almost thirty one months with a total percentage change of minus fifty percent financial crisis wasn't quite as long was only about seventeen months it felt like longer at the time that was almost a fifty six percent drop and of course the even the the nineteen twenty nine stock crash that bear market that really only lasted about thirty two months but it was down eighty six percent so it again anybody who's telling you this is the worst we've ever seen that died at the there's that but nothing like this yes some of things going on society is somewhat unprecedented but again the market reaction is not all that is is not all that rare if you will going back to time that is not all that rare is that volatility clusters okay one thing that we know about bear markets if they don't very rarely to bear markets due to the market goes straight down what you tend to see is a big pickup in market volatility because the market doesn't know what to do I remember the fall of two thousand eight I mean one day people were thinking Hey listen if that you know the fed's gonna come and bail us out the next day people were thinking all of Wall Street was gonna get wiped out and vacillated that quickly just like within the last couple weeks and what happens is the best days are often mixed in with the selloffs so just to give you couple statistics the fifty best days for the S. and P. five hundred from January first nineteen ninety five through March fifteenth of two thousand twenty most of those came in bear markets the two best days were October thirteenth and October twenty eighth two thousand eight eleven point six up and ten point eight percent up in fact out of the top twelve under setting up here one two three five seven of the two of the best twelve days since nineteen ninety five came in the fall I late and and winter of two thousand eight the market without forty percent that's left here so you had a terrible year one of the worst ever recorder but seven or eight great up days so this volatility cluster that we're seeing this in a frenetic markets where it looks like you know everything everything is just completely come on hinged disconcerting yes but unprecedented now a few other things that are you know again he hoped disconcerting and and make us all nervous but have also been seen before one is a fifty two week lows as extreme as they are today right now depending on the day roughly seventy to eighty percent of stocks on the S. and P. five hundred are at or near their fifty two week lows the fall of two thousand eight it got to ninety ninety percent of stocks so that's why of course when you know I'm part of that is attributable to the rise of index investing right when someone hit the sell button on a billion dollar S. and P. five hundred you know program your futures contract or something like that all five hundred stocks in the S. and P. gets old okay and and also these big down days you haven't seen distinction between high quality low quality value or growth it's everything gets sold we've seen that before nothing that we've seen is of course when you have a period of economic stress like you like you saying right now we all know that America is kind of shutting down right that tends to put stress in the credit markets as well right now the the spread between high yield what high yield bonds are yielding an investment grade bonds are yielding is about roughly three percent at the at peak fear in early two thousand nine it got to almost seven percent so yes forcing credit stressed for sure but we've seen twice as much credit stress just in the last twelve or thirteen years and by the way I'm Tony this this could easily get worse before it gets better so maybe we do get to six or seven percent at some point particularly in certain sectors I mean energy hospitality you know cruise lines airlines we know that those bonds are going to be under extreme duress at least over the next two or three quarters make maybe significantly longer depending on what happens with no government assistance and what have you so I think you get the point folks what's going on in society not to repeat myself but what's going on society is somewhat unprecedented but the way that the markets react to that and investors react to that we've seen it before doesn't mean that we necessarily know what to do on a daily basis doesn't mean that we're fully prepared for because you never know the extent of it right until you look back on in retrospect I don't know thirty five percent loss is going to become a fifty five percent loss and quite frankly with the way things are going we can go from thirty five percent to fifty five percent in a couple days okay yeah this this thing doesn't look like it's gonna play out over eighteen months but but again the way that the markets have responded is not something that's it's rare but not all that unusual I think the big point I wanted to make an end this sort of number two of the things that I do now is let that I don't know but that of the things that I don't know this is somewhat obvious picking up which we tend to forget it when we're going through it in real time one hundred percent of bear markets have recovered and one hundred percent of their markets have eventually will eventually lead to new all time highs so before I get into some data and in just a couple general points this is why it's so important to stay in the game can you six stays solvent and what I mean by that is that we've mentioned this in a couple client emails so much of the selling right now is not the voluntary selling its forced selling its hedge funds that were leverage to the gills I read the other day about a huge multi billion dollar long short trading program okay they were long stocks betting on stocks going up and short stocks betting on stocks going down well they were so leveraged they were they were simultaneously liquid in long and short positions so they were responsible supposedly again I read this after the fact but supposedly they were they were responsible for some of these big you know two hundred three hundred point swings in both directions within like ten fifteen twenty minutes because they were liquidating positions on both sides they had to you were you had a lot of investors who because the markets have done well the last few years we're margin drop in their portfolios when you get margin calls you have to sell what you don't want to sell when you don't want to sell it and often you have to sell your most liquid securities treasuries gold blue.

"We're now joined by Fairfax own supervisor Pat parody as we love covering things in it Fairfax county because they give us so much to talk about. And now, here's the latest with regard to illegal immigrants in Fairfax county, supervisor heritage I sometimes wonder what your colleagues are thinking over there. What's the latest? Yeah. I wonder what they're thinking to this one came out of the blue Larry. Well, they're they're talking about setting up a legal defense fund for deportation hearing hearings, which is of course, a civil action. We don't we don't pay for civil defence for any of our tax paying hardworking residents. Just it it blows my mind. We obviously we have a public defenders for people who are facing criminal charges and can't afford an attorney, and and do public defenders represents not just non citizens, but citizens who are in the country legally here, an illegal immigrant, and you're caught stealing a car. You'll get a public defender, right? Certainly for criminal offenses. Yes. You will everybody gets a everybody gets defensive criminal proceedings, but these are civil proceedings and they're facing deportation. And generally speaking, my understanding is over ninety percent of undocumented immigrants legal aliens who are in this country that are facing deportation right now, these are people who have committed some other crime as well. That's correct. Typically, we don't we don't do 'immigration enforcement turf X county, but we certainly want to get the bad guys off the streets. And when they commit crimes, we we should we should arrest them and then through deportation of now, the tax dollars of law abiding citizens of Fairfax county are now going to be redirected to pay for attorneys. To help defend people who are facing deportation. Well, how much money are we talking about here? Well for starters, it's two hundred million dollars in carryover funds. But who knows what the plan is for for for next year? And and you and you said it right at this competes with all the other needs that we have in Fairfax county, we've already increased taxpayers the taxes on our homeowner's twenty five percent in the last five years. But it competes with parks it competes with library's public safety. You know, we've got some police pay issues we need to address. Why we're spending two hundred million when we when we don't provide us for our for our two hundred thousand I'm sorry when we don't we don't provide this for our residents. Oh that that's important as we're talking two hundred thousand dollars nine hundred million dollars. I'm sorry two hundred thousand but still I mean, that's two hundred thousand dollars that you could be spending that can last time. I checked your county wasn't flush with tax write era with tax revenue. You have to make tough choices on how you spend money. Two hundred thousand dollars could go a long way. That's correct. It can solve a lot of problems if it's used correctly. All right. And so what's it looking like, what's the public comment process on this provides a heretic and people come in and be a part of this conversation. What we've got one day we're in the middle of of budget public hearings right now, they will they'll run until about six o'clock tonight. But people can sign up the come in tomorrow few sign up for budget public hearings tomorrow, you'll probably be on starting at about five o'clock in. That's on the Fairfax county website board of supervisors budget public hearings and folks can sign up and come tell the tell the board what they think about this. I I don't know how the vote is going to go on this. I know the budget chairman supervisor McCain supervisor faster certainly in front of this initiative, and we'll see where the rest of the board goes. And by the way, we've seen some of the things they flirted with the idea of creating a Fairfax as a sanctuary county. We saw them questioning in working with the the sheriff to to try to, you know, stop cooperating with ice, and it all seems to stem from these county supervisors in my opinion, put words in your mouth really just trying to find any way to get headlines to pick a fight with Donald Trump. And and help them is that. Is that is that how the debates been going is that how the conversations have been going is this really all about President Trump and not about the people of Fairfax county. I think it's a little bit about that. I think it's a little bit about we've got some people in primaries here in Fairfax county, the democratic primary than we've got people running this far as far left as they can get in his liberal as they can get to to get the primary voters. There you go. All right. So it's real real scary. They want they do want to turn into a sanctuary county. Yeah. They sure do. You're one of the voices. They're pushing back against that. And we appreciate it. And you always have a voice here supervisor pack parody. There you go Fairfax county ball's in your court. They wanna use your tax dollars to create a legal defense fund. To provide illegal alien something that Fairfax county citizens. Don't get. Legal defense for a civil action deportation. That's your tax dollars..
