Realestate Sector to See Job Cuts
"Mortgage brokers and appraisers across the United States are bracing for widespread job cuts. His home sales plummet, amid rising interest rates. For those who work in and around the housing market, the effective aggressive move by the Federal Reserve had been swift and severe. It went from feast to famine and everybody buying to turtles low. Said Linda McCoy, president of the national association of mortgage brokers. Realtors, mortgage brokers, appraisers and construction groups say they have left they have lost as much as 80% of their revenue since the fed started raising rates in March. Rates for a 30 year fixed issued mortgage at 6.66% and nearly doubled since then, now at their highest level since 2008. Home sales quickly plunged. Now, that doesn't mean you lost money. And I'll tell you later why you want to continue to buy the house and get into it now. But it just tells you that we are in a recession and the president doesn't know it.

New Data Indicates We're in A "Housing Recession"
"Anyway, going back to the home sales numbers because this is interesting. They fell for the 6th straight month. That's actually when you look at it the longest streak of declines in more than 8 years. And it makes sense, right? Because mortgage rates are going up, they have to go up, given what the fed is doing, and so people can't afford as much house. The mortgage rate is higher. That means you're paying more in interest. So naturally, home prices would have to pull back. So sales have previously owned homes they dipped 5.9% in July from the previous month coming out of a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.81 million. This is according to the national association of realtors, which revealed this on Thursday. That is the weakest pace of sales. Since November of 2015, you got to go back a few years there. And that's by the way, taking out that three month period when we first went into March 2020, right? And things were really scary and you saw this huge drop off in home sales then, which was totally reversed and turned around almost instantaneously because people were like, wait a second, you know, I'm working from home now. I need a bigger, a bigger home with a home office and people poured their money in their savings into real estate. And the question now is whether or not that will continue.
We May Be Heading Into Challenging Times for Housing
"Got inflation going on. And then what do you know? We've got the prospect of a potential recession in housing. I mean, you think to yourself, how can that even be possible right now, given how on fire this housing market really has been, and yet some of the recent data both in terms of home affordability and then now what you're seeing in terms of sentiment suggests that we're heading for a more challenging time. As we said, I mean, look, these things are cyclical and you can't have something going up up up and away forever. I mean, you've seen that it's hard to actually get a house because the prices now have gone. So high. And now some are suggesting that, in fact, we are in what you might call a housing recession. This is what home builders are saying in fact confidence among builders in that U.S. housing market has actually plunged the lowest level that we've seen really since. I mean, you're going to go back to March 2020. Of course, they could be totally wrong. I mean, look at what happened after March 2020, the housing market went totally on fire. But this is the national association of home builders, Wells Fargo, housing market index, and it measures kind of the pulse of the single-family housing market to see what the sentiment is for that. And it fell for the 8th straight consecutive month down to 49, which is actually the worst stretch that we've seen for housing since 2008. Any reading above 50 is considered positive when you're at 49, that's considered negative. And so we may be heading into more challenging times for housing.
Home Prices Are the Least Affordable in 33 Years
"Turning to that inflation report right now on housing. It's out of control. In fact, we're looking at home prices that are up so significantly that buying a home in America right now is actually the least affordable it's been in 33 years. Average mortgage payments rose to $1944 in the month of June compared to in January of last, while earlier this year, there were 1297, so rather significant spike, this is all due to higher rates and to record home prices. Kind of a bad combination, right? Because you've got rates going up, which means mortgages are more expensive. All while the housing market is so frothy that everything costs more. So it makes it tough for everyday folks. The national association of realtors is reporting this, the U.S. housing affordability index, they measure this affordability it fell to 98.5 last June. Again, the lowest recorded in 33 years. So housing is expensive. What's frustrating and what we all need to be aware of is that those economists, those wonky economists over there, the Federal Reserve, that don't seem to think or didn't seem to think forever that inflation was an issue. Remember just transitory transitory nothing to see here? Well, they don't like to look at housing prices. In their metrics, because they feel that housing is an investment. And it's too volatile. And so they discount it and consequently, I think this is part of the reason why they missed how bad inflation really was and how much it was getting embedded into our everyday economy.
As Fox News Goes, so Does the Republican Party
"It's very clear to me that the Republican Party is going through a an evolutionary evolutionary process, a metamorphosis that they are shifting on the culture issues of the day. Are you beginning to see this? And I'm going to give you a clue. The clue is Fox News channel as Fox News goes so goes the Republican Party. Now Fox News channel over the past 5 or 6 years made a radical shift to embrace the LGBT movement. And to elevate the LGBT movement. And so if you want a job at let's just say you go to a Christian school and you want to be a journalist and you apply for a job at Fox. You are probably not going to get that job. And the reason is very simple, because they have partnerships with the national association of gay and lesbian journalists. They have associations with other far left journalism organizations, and so those organizations are funneling their people who are not journalists. They're activists into the newsrooms and the TV shows of Fox News channel. And that's why you see it. Fox News and just I want you to step back and think about this. Only one cable news channel has a paid transgender activist on their staff. It is not MSD and C it is not CNN. Crying Negro network. Thank you judge Joe Brown. It is not newsmax. It is not what America news. It's Fox News channel. And they celebrate that. They celebrate their diversity.

CBS Gives a Pass to Jill Biden for Calling Latinos 'Tacos'
"So instead of attacking the First Lady, CBS decided we've got to lend her a helping hand cut for. Christina, let me switch gears here. First Lady Jill Biden is taking some heat after people took offense at comets. She made it a Latino rights event in Texas yesterday. Let's listen to what she said. With the understanding that the diversity of this community as distinct as the bogus of The Bronx as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio. All right, obviously equating tacos with the Latino community is the issue that many find incredibly offensive. Christina, what is The White House saying about this? Yeah, no comment yet from The White House this morning and those comments come a day before Mexican president Lopez Obrador is here today to meet with mister Biden so the timing is especially uneasy. Look, those remarks from the First Lady came as part of a prepared speech praising the work of a well-known activist, the national association of Hispanic journalists, condemned the comments, saying in part that Latinos should not be reduced to a stereotype. Vlad. That is exactly right. Christina, thank you very much. We all agree with that. Absolutely. First Lady's team probably huddling today. You think that up? Because when you know Joe Biden, that's not who she is, but it didn't come out correctly. You know, I'm not a big fan of breakfast tacos, grace maker. It's, I don't know. I'm a biscuit guy. So give me a sausage biscuit. I don't like a crumbled up in the doctor. Well, it's just a little too heavy for me. You put the salsa yet. It's just a bit much. It's a for lunch. It's a bit much.

Gov. Scott Walker: Thank God Senate Didn't Confirm Garland for SCOTUS
"Protesters activists, people on the far left are literally breaking federal law, camped out in front of the homes of Supreme Court Justices, voicing their displeasure through bullhorns and banging drums and obscenities and everything else carrying around bloodied baby dolls and yet Merrick Garland and the Justice Department and the Biden administration don't seem to have any inclination to at least enforce the law. Isn't it fascinating how the media has the mainstream media at least has refused to even acknowledge the lawlessness of these protesters? If it was reversed, there'd be pants on fire, their hair would be on fire. Although I do have to say, Mike, one thing just an aside, I just knocked some in the Senate. This is where they deserve credit from a few years ago. Thank God they did not confirm Merrick Garland as a member of the U.S. Supreme Court for all this talk about him being some reasonable middle of the road person. He's not. He's a total left wing lackey. And the idea that earlier this year, he would allow his Justice Department to be aligned with the national association of school boards when they were calling concerned parents showing up at school board meetings domestic terrorists and really trying to intimidate them. This is the same Justice Department that, as you mentioned, this isn't just a bad idea. This is a federal law that prohibits people intimidating officers of the court. That's justices, judges, prosecutors, understandably so. We don't want people who are before the court out trying to intimidate a judge or a justice and their family, you know, that's something you think of years ago with the mafia or somebody else in organized crime trying to do that. They should be prosecuting those people to the full extent of the law and they certainly need to step up once this decision comes out. What was alleged to have happened or could have happened against Kavanaugh justice Kavanaugh? I think is a prime reminder about why this is just so important.

Attorney Harmeet Dhillon Describes the Left's Playbook to Censor Conservatives
"I want to ask you how me, there is this story that's been developing slowly in the last couple months of the national school board association of America that wrote this letter that then triggered surveillance from the Department of Justice, or at least we know threat assessment tags from the DoJ and FBI to categorize moms and dads as terrorists came out yesterday that the head of the education secretary Cabrera, who's there now actually there's evidence to show that he asked the national school board association of America to for the letter, right? So this is an important point that the government is asking a private organization for a letter to try and then get justification to then trigger domestic surveillance. Am I tracking this correctly? Yeah, you're absolutely right. And this is no surprise. This is to me, this is part of a pattern. For example, my law firm and nonprofit the center for American liberty sued the state of California over a similar fact pattern where after the 2020 election, these state working together with the national association of secretaries of state and social media companies ask the social media companies to take down speech of certain speakers, that was critical of the Secretary of State. And Twitter did that in almost 100% of the cases and other social media companies to a lesser degree. We sued over that. The court just dismissed that lawsuit and we're considering our next options. But what you are seeing is not just isolated incidents like this. It's a playbook.

Promises kept. Peter wood, welcome to the program. So good to be here. Listen, we've known each other for some time. I knew you when you were the provost of the King's College. Here in New York City, you've written many books. You are currently. I always want to know how to describe people because if I know people, my tendency is just like, my friend, Peter, but you are an anthropologist. You are the current president of the national association of scholars. What is that before we leap into your brand new book, which I'm so excited about? But what is that? The polling organization. It's a membership organization that was started in the mid 1980s by basically liberal academics who were concerned that the radicals were taking over, and they wanted to fight back. They created a group to do that. They failed entirely. And I helped pick up the pieces about 12 years ago. What radicals did they fail were taking over fear we're taking over? Well, they had opened the door to marxists and other people on the far left in the spirit. You see, you have to clarify. When you say liberals, you mean classical liberals who believe in the basics were afraid that Marxist maniacs were taking over. Exactly. Okay, so but isn't it interesting because somebody you've been in the academy for many years isn't it fascinating how clear the divisions have become, that there used to be liberals. And now, most people that are classical liberals on a host of issues stand where we do as conservatives. It's fascinating. They've been redefined into conservativism, even if they didn't want to be. That's right. And the national association of scholars is kind of their headquarters for the go. Well, how terrific I'm glad to think that you're the head of it. Now you've been writing you've written a lot. You wrote a book a year ago called 1620, a critical response to the 16 19 project. I'd love to talk to you about that. But the new book is called wrath. America enraged. There's a wonderful article that I guess is excerpted from it that I found in the American at American greatness. And that's how I learned that you had written this book. So what is the thesis of this book whose title is wrath, America, enraged? The thesis is that the 2020 election has infuriated lots of Americans, not all of them consider themselves conservative, but many do. They believed that there was significant mischief in the way that wow. Well, we can't talk about that on the program, and we can get ripped right off of YouTube. Edit that out. Okay, please continue. They believe that there was mischief in the election. And what a sweet word though. I'm laughing because in this puckish way you're saying mischief in the election. Yes, it's called punching lady liberty in the head. I mean, honestly, if there was mischief, it's worse than mischief, isn't it? Some would say so. Well, I'd be among them. I'm just saying, but even the idea of it is so scandalous and so horrifying that the only response is to be scandalized and horrified. But we're living in a culture where people say, well, we've covered that. There's no evidence shut up, move on. Science has already history has decided and you are at least acknowledging that, well, many scores of millions of Americans are not convinced that that election was completely on the up and up. Yeah. And the idea that maybe we have to be careful about how we talk about it or whether we talk about it, that alone, I just say this over and over again, but that alone is so scandalous to me that in America, people would suggest, hey, you can't talk about that. But that's part of where you're coming from with the thesis of your book wrath. The other piece of it was the riot on Capitol Hill on January 6th, which was immediately classified as an insurrection. Was Nancy Pelosi killed, by the way? Wasn't one of them killed? I'm pretty sure because the hubbub was so big. Surely, some senators and Congress people were murdered, right? Right. Well, the insurrectionists accidentally left all their weapons behind and also left their tactics behind. And many of them wandered around taking selfies and it didn't turn out very well as far as insurrection. That's trouble. People taking selfies in America? Gosh, it's scandalous. Okay, so you write about this if people want to read the article. It's an American greatness. And it is really a spectacular article. But the book, you deal with the larger issue of, I guess the response to January 6th and the response to the election. Yes. I'm writing for the American public that despite all the declarations that to talk about these things is itself seditious or is to participate in the big lie that there is nonetheless something that happened that leaves tens of millions of Americans feeling that their form of representative government has been taken away from them, that they've suffered an injury in the form of no longer being in a country that respects the consent of the governed, but instead is imposing all sorts of rules and other kinds of dictates on how they must lead their lives. This does not go down well, and it has angered people. Engaging in a certain amount of rhetorical inflation because I think the kind of anger that they are feeling is better captured in that word wrath, which is a more intense form of anger and it's where anger goes when it has been denied any legitimate form of ordinary expression. If we can't dissent publicly without being declared by the attorney general of the United States that your domestic terrorists, your anger backs up and it becomes like that water behind the Johnstown dam before it finally. What's the name of the current attorney general? Merit Garland. Oh, Mary. Now, was he murdered on January 6th? No, he was not. Fascinating. Fewer and fewer people were murdered by the insurrectionists than I had previously been led to believe. Okay, so what is happening now? I revert to severe sarcasm because it's so painful to me to live in a world where educated formerly intelligent people are saying things like what Merrick Garland said. Do you suppose, is it a combination of ignorance insensitivity to the political climate? Or is it conscious. Marxism of a kind? Where people are just saying, we are going to say and do what we want to do because we have the power to do it. What is your sense? Because some of it is just so outrageous that it's almost impossible for me to respond. I don't know how to respond anymore. Well, I think certainly some of it is this boldfaced where people are knowingly saying things that are untrue with the idea that they have the ability to force them into our lives to force compliance with falsehoods. So to that extent, there's a large amount of cynicism involved, but I'm the world's a complex place. Some people actually believe their lies are capable of convincing themselves that this is for a greater good. I think that the manipulations around the 2020 election were of that kind. People knew when they were stuffing ballot boxes that that was wrong, but they thought that reelecting Trump was wrong and can't even believe that a.

It's a membership organization that was started in the mid 1980s by basically liberal academics who were concerned that the radicals were taking over, and they wanted to fight back. They created a group to do that. They failed entirely. And I helped pick up the pieces about 12 years ago. What radicals did they fail were taking over fear we're taking over? Well, they had opened the door to marxists and other people on the far left in the spirit. You see, you have to clarify. When you say liberals, you mean classical liberals who believe in the basics were afraid that Marxist maniacs were taking over. Exactly. Okay, so but isn't it interesting because somebody you've been in the academy for many years isn't it fascinating how clear the divisions have become, that there used to be liberals. And now, most people that are classical liberals on a host of issues stand where we do as conservatives. It's

But it appears that a lot of people are moving up their plans that instead of a vacation home someday They're like, right now is the time Are you finding that the baby boomer population as they are retiring or pre retiring, meaning that they are age in the late fifties or early sixties, and they know that there will be retiring in a few years are saying Now what do I buy the vacation home, now annoying that I will have a couple of more years to work. And then afterwards, I'm going to make the full transition, but by now rather than two years from now because home values are still in good Condition and fertile more. Do you flexibility to work from home? Let's say the southwest regions of the Florida whether Naples Marco Island, Sarasota, Now super hot as well as the sort of mountain retreat, Uh, region said, you know, one goes up to Poconos. Pennsylvania, Wilders there are saying there is just super busy in today's market. Interesting. And Lawrence. As you continue to mention some of these wonderful second home markets around the country, I've got to tell you. I'd love to live in every one of them. That is, I think the America the beautiful possible travel plans for many people had to say that you know that it was a great landscape across the Country. And we also know of fuel. Uh, individuals who may be renting out an RV and just going across the country, But you know RVs can get old. They want to have more secure, solid land. Not only that rate of return by it get the price appreciation over time. That's a financial wealth gangs. So the vacation home market I feel very optimistic not only about what has happened but going forward. Absolutely. And Lawrence if we get back to the cause of why vacation homes are such a hot commodity. As you said, We have more people working from home and we have more people moving up their retirement plans to buy a second home. But what about the mortgage interest rates? Are they playing a role also? Somewhat more than half of vacation. Home purchases are done all cash, so you know they're the interest rates are very low and all the financial advisors running the numbers would say, Yeah, just borrow some money via educational. But in today's market, more than half of vacation homes are being sold. All cash that is so interesting, and it always impresses me how many people have that much money that they can invest? It also means that the vacation home regions, these are markets on solid ground homes. Do not for clothes when it's an all cash purchase. Abso lutely.

Let's talk about the latest numbers now and what they mean to you with Lawrence Yun, the chief economist at the National Association of Real Tours, Lawrence, Welcome to real estate today. Hello is Stephen. Thanks for having me on the show? Well, Lawrence, we're so glad you're here, so we had a little dip month over month. But a huge surge year over year in existing home sales. What's going on here, Lawrence? Yeah, we did lose a step on a month to month down 2.7%. The home sales are running at an annual lives. Pace up 5.8 million. This is still good figure. I mean, if we can hold at this level, it would mark the highest sells activity and 14 years, So it is a good level. But it is no longer that above six million annualized pace that we've been seeing an autumn of last year along with him in the winter, months after accounting positional factors So the situation is that we don't have enough inventory and therefore home cells are not clicking, and that is clearly reflected and this record pace of home price appreciation. Of course, that you said Lawrence, the biggest limiting factor is the number of homes for sale.

Just putting the escalation price had added cost to it yet there a still able to sell the home and the demand is still strong. About 33% of 40% of homes currently sold are above this price.

If gun owners come together and we utilize things like podcasts. Email lists websites youtube. Obviously some of the big tech organizations are friendly to our cause but there are so many channels to get people involved in that we can make it easy now. That's that's part of what we wanna do. You wanna make it as easy as possible for individuals to get involved. You know like i said we sent out an email. We say click to sign. Your petition is really easy. We don't give away your complete identifying information because obviously we're not going to turn that over to the government and we protect our list. We don't sell them We don't we. Don't give them over to government agents or anything like that we use that we generate petitions. We generate emails generate phone calls and we blasted out. We do see the effects of positive effect. Like you're talking about where grassroots gun owners come together to to lobby the government's it's really awesome to see. It's it's one of the most encouraging part of my job when when we can just see the power of normal people coming together to promote the second amendment. What leslie i'd like to speak about national reciprocity that's important piece of legislation as well Most background checks. As far as i know a very similar in every state. So i'm passing a background check in new york wash might be able to come to colorado and still possess my firearm to protect myself. My family your absolutely we.

Wherever you are in the united states of america me that that is our opinion. Flat out doesn't matter whether you live in california colorado. Florida montana kentucky. If you can own and carry a firearm you should be able to possess it no matter what state you're in and that's the reality of of the reason why we have a bill of rights that it joins the state's together says these are rights that are commonly held by all americans and one of the most successful ways. We we've seen that. We're trying to help implement that from the state to state level is passing laws a constitutional. Carry right. now there's eighteen states. Or i think actually almost nineteen because iowa just passed constitutional carry. We're getting to the precipice now. Where more and more states are even saying. You don't even need a permit If you can legally buy a gun you should be legally allowed to carry that farm right and obviously if you commit a crime with it will then you should be held responsible And so it's this rolling effect that the more and more we pass this bill. It opens people's eyes. It opens up the pressure on legislators on governors to look and see that. Hey this state has done it. We can to States that have passed.

It never gets an immediate attraction because the mass shooting doesn't occur know. There's a crazy person that shows up somewhere with a knife a gun a bomber car. And then there's a law-abiding citizen there. Who stops them in half the time. They don't even have to discharge their weapon in stops crime. So you're exactly right these laws all. They do is hamper the ability for normal individuals to protect themselves and crazy. Deranged terrorists You know they'll get their weapons other ways. I mean the department of justice did a study where they interviewed People who are in prison who committed crimes with weapons they said you know. How did you get your guns. Did you get your weapon. They're like all we bought it illegally. It was a straw purchase. We stole it so they're admitting that all the laws you wanna pass. They're not going to stop us.

We are a five. Oh one c. Four nonprofit and we consider ourselves no compromise when it comes to the second amendment are our purpose as an organization is both to defend the second amendment but also restore the rights that have been lost so our headquarters is here in colorado. Where obviously there's a lot of gun control is passed so we have a state chapter here rocky mountain gun owners that works very hard but we also have an office in washington. Dc by we have lobbyists who work on capitalize to live in washington dc. Myself farms lobbyist in. We have a very large field team. Networks in state legislatures all across the country mostly working on the passage of constitutional carry. But also getting people involved to understand. What's going on and fundamentally our power comes from are four and a half million members. Grassroots activists are the folks that helped lobby legislators to tell him either. Hey don't vote for this gun control. Bill were watching what you're doing or the reverse. Hey there's a great bill here that will restore our rights. I want you to vote for this. I'm a voter at living your district. I know who you are. and so. that's that's what we're about as an organization is not compromising not taking half measures showing and really reminding people You know the left wants to say. Oh there's no gun control in in the united states which is obviously patently false. I mean you can go back nearly one hundred years the national firearms act of nineteen thirty. Four the gun control act of nineteen sixty eight the hughes amendment in one thousand nine or excuse me nineteen eighty-four the brady law nineteen ninety-three the assault weapons ban which obviously sunset in two thousand four and the knicks expansion. Act in two thousand. I mean they've been passing so much gun control over the last one hundred years as an organization we were looking around and realizing we have to stop this. And so that's what we do and we're proud to do that work. We've been very successful at at the state level especially constitutional carries a big a big issue for us at the state level. We helped pass constitutional carrying montana and utah. This year is walls in iowa and then at the federal level. It's unfortunately mostly playing defense. There's not a whole lot to do to pass program bills. Obviously we do work with with legislators to introduce program legislation and try and move the ball for as much as you can but it's mostly playing defense. I mean that's exactly what we did in twenty thirteen during the two mansion fight. Most some people might realize that during president obama's second term after the tragedy at sandy hook they wanted to pass a ton of gun control and it was our members who were who were pouring and phone calls and petitions and emails personal visits to capitol hill Telling telling your legislators you can't vote for this this is this is the destruction of our gun rights. So that's really kind of that was a long explanation. But that's really what we're about as organizationto well since the beginning of the year I know as of august there were five million new firsthand gun owners and that's a tremendous amount of.
