"Never in my wife, have I seen an economic situation is confusing. With the Cross currents that we have right now. We have tens of millions of Americans they continue to suffer mightily from unemployment underemployment. Medical problems, financial hardships. is just crazy and then at the same time. That are doing quite well. One area where people were very very. Unhappy and suffering mightily. Is the small business sector of the economy. And certainly, there are small businesses that have been devastated by corona virus and had a brutally hard time. Many businesses that have shut down for good. The same time other small businesses. Are doing quite well, and this creates these cross currents that are so. hard to understand and so confusing. Well. The NFL I be, which is the Trade Association for Small Businesses National Federation independent businesses puts out. A survey on business attitudes every month. and. This is what's crazy. The, what they call their optimism index. is at one of the highest numbers ever at one Oh four. Back in late spring, it was at seventy five. At, the same time. The uncertainty numbers are way up which speaks to how confusing. The current economic situation is. Businesses. Very, significant number of businesses that have survived. Wildly enough are thriving now. and. People. Are once again. Investing in their businesses, the number of business owners in the survey who are expanding their businesses is rising. So that's why. It is. Such a befuddling time because it completely depends. On what kind of small business you are. How you're being affected by this, this is why certain cities or regions. Are being brutalized. By our current corona virus influenced economy well, others are doing quite well the oil region tourism regions just absolutely being hit over the head with a two by four. Massive job losses. That sort of thing, and then other areas are doing quite well any area of the country, any metro area that is very heavily technology oriented. Doing extremely, well, certain manufacturing sector's doing well. The good of this is that we are not in a cyclical downturn in the US economy where basically. Everything, is doing poorly in everybody is pessimistic. And the environment we're in now helps create. A better and quicker recovery then we might expect otherwise during a recession. But there are a lot of businesses and a lot of jobs. That will not come back until the cloud of people's fear of infection from Corona virus lifts, which I am putting at some point. Late summer early fall of twenty one. So. There are people among us who don't fear Corona virus. But. There's a larger percent of Americans who do and it has shifted how they live their lives, what they do, and what they'll spend their money on, and that's why the economic situation. Is So. Choppy.

"Teo asked him where they could send money, Tio fun Supreme Court crease, and they described the Supreme Court amicus briefs. These are a friend of Corp Reese, not by the parties, but by other groups. They face an amicus being cost $250,000 per brief. And in the documents that were being published on the Dark Web a couple of years ago, but the Bradley Foundation in those documents in their own language, the Bradley Foundation describes What they're doing is trying to orchestrate, orchestrate these high caliber amicus briefs in order to change the law. In that instance one of the cases specifically attacking the affordable care act. And another case was attacking labor rights through a case that was known as free drinks, and then was subsequently replaced with the case that Americans know Noah's Janice the Janis decision, so the Rally Foundation, this nonprofit foundation was intimately involved in orchestrating the cases that were being brought to the U. S. Supreme Court. In fact, it takes credit in those grand documents for Funding the competitive enterprises to Alan, which you mentioned, which basically orchestrated that case that attack on the the committed him. Infront Price Institute is founded by another Coke man, Fred Smith, who was coats right hand man at one of the first organizations he created in the late 19 seventies. S O U also have coke funding for the competitive surprises Tune, and it has spent much of its time in these last 30 years focused on attacking any climate change legislation and environmental rules, but it has suddenly in in these recent years got involved in fighting the Affordable Care act. On DH. That's you know, coincidentally or not one of the pet attacks of Charles Coke, Charles Coke has spent millions and millions of dollars of his own money, his money of the billionaires that he brings together to have advance attacks on the affordable care act since since it was a conception. Back in 2009, a a legislative proposal that originated from the Heritage Foundation and Republicans like Mitt Romney, in place of having universal health care of Medicare for all on DH Coke has been attacking it relentlessly. He spent money funding the National Federation independent businesses. So here you have the man who helped with the largest corporations in the world. Coke Industries, one of the biggest companies on the planet, becoming suddenly the secret biggest funder of the National Federation of Independent Businesses, which describes itself as the voice of small business. A time that it was smiling litigation before the Supreme Court challenging the affordable care act. You mentioned that that that that is the case that the Bradley Foundation has spent more on these on these issues. Then the Coke family foundations. But the unknown factor there is that we know for certain that Coke Industries itself funds some of these operations, including Americans for prosperity, it's group in Wisconsin and nationally that is actively engaged in in election related activities to try to get more right right wingers in office. In Wisconsin everywhere so we don't know how much Coke industries is given. But Bradley Foundation is a is a formidable amount represents a formidable amount of money, and it clearly has been playing a behind the scenes role influencing What case is get to the Supreme Court on DH That's not disclosed in those pleadings. It's not describe who they're funders are and a Senator Whitehouse point out this week. Of you have a situation where Leonard Leo is helping with the sort of steering these Aniket money toward these amicus briefs and also being the guy who's deciding helping deciding who the president chooses from Who's on the Supreme Court, so basically choosing the referee for the court. A swell asshole. Ping Teo get the cases that he wants the court to hear a majority the court to hear and as he described in a story his he was quoting the story by The Washington Post last May. By Robert O. Heroine Shambo Berg. He sits at the helm basically of a network of turning $50 million worth of funding to capture DS, the US Supreme Court, federal courts and the state courts. And before I wrap on that, let me just say, Allen, one of the things that is really shocking to me. Is that because he's a quote, volunteer for Trump on this judicial nominations process, he has no financial disclosure forms. There's no indication of where his money is coming from in 2018. We now have the financial filings that showed that the federal society Paid him about $100,000 less than his total compensation, which is usually around a half A million dollars paid him about $100,000 less because he was spending time ball unquote volunteering on the Supreme Court nomination and yet That summer after Brett Kavanaugh was nominated, I learned the pain off the mortgage of his house in Virginia on and on the eve of the vote of to confirm Cavanaugh. The day the closure of it was taken basically within 24 to 30 hours of of that vote mentally a closed on a management maintain that sold for $3.3 million. There's no mention of that. In my view. What's money we're going? We're going to go. You know, we're already short of time. We have so much we could go into so we're going to take their several calls waiting. I'm going to ask We have three people in the queue and asked people to keep it brief. Get your question in so we can get everyone in before the end of the hour because again, there's so much to talk to. Let's start with Will Hae Will. You're on the air. Thank you.

So if you are a partner, you don't wanna miss that. Please. Make sure you stay tuned for all of that. We're trying to move. I'm trying to as fast as I can try to keep you informed as much as I can. And on preparing the number of things in order to do that. We're going to right now preparing them for the conference call which I believe is next Thursday. I'm not sure I don't remember the exact date, but I know it's an extra week sometime. So we're looking forward to that. And I want, you know, make sure that you tune in to check in with that conference call very very important. And if we have another one before that I will let you know. But I did put a little information over some of the things that I am looking watching for some of the things I've already said here this morning on the commentary section of our website. So next Thursday is our conference call by the way, NFL bay the national federation independent business survey came out this morning. It was up, and I gotta tell you what I saw that took a little bit of a sigh of relief. That's very good news. It's out one tenth of one percent. So it's one or one point eight. So we're staying still above that one hundred Mark. And that is very good news the but the better news. That's good news. That's great. But the better news yet is the uncertainty index index on certainty and the certainty index actually dropped to seventy nine. And that that means it's returning to a more more normal levels of uncertainty that that small business companies have and so that is good news to see that drop. So not a lot of uncertainty pretty important that we continue to see that optimism grow. And we are seeing behind the largest employer in the nation, which is small business. Still stay. Very very optimistic. So that is that is good news will watch will why I'm glad the uncertainty because uncertainty is the worst thing possible that we can have high numbers on. We don't wanna see that. So we did see that drop. And that is good news. So we'll watch it. But some of their concerns remain the same. You know, the ability to hire find people that still a concern opportunity for hiring is high. That's good. But it's not good. If you can't find people the higher that it becomes a problem. So plans to increase employment companies that are looking to increase employment was up eighteen percent. That's very very good. And that was one of the numbers that was up current job openings. Were of. They asked a question is this a good time to expand that was up. To twenty three percent that was higher earnings trend up again. So that is so we have some really good current inventories. That was a little bit negative that was down on a bit. And people that expected business that expected credit conditions to get negative that was a little bit more negative right now, we're watching the indices take it on the chin as we look at the Dallas down about three quarters of one percent right now. So down about three quarters of one percent. The NASDAQ is down about just over a third of one percent the SMP's about Dan about two-thirds of one percent. And again, the Dow is. Down just over three quarters of one percent. So anyway, that's where we are right now. And we'll see how that how that holes that's going to continue to to. Struggle as we move forward.

If not we will do what we can do and the best we can do with what we have that is for certain. So hopefully, I know it's going to probably mean some changes. But whatever changes it might me. That is fine. I wanna wish everybody. Happy Veterans Day. Just a. You know, a day that I hope that we can. Really sit back and reflect on all of those that served us in such a powerful way. Those that have served those that have served and lost their life gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Those men and women who are currently serving that we would grant wish God's blessings would be upon them. Right now, we just wish that this day would be a day that we are all very grateful for what they have done. No, man. She I'll be able to stand before you all the days of your life. This from Joshua one five and six. As I was with Moses. So I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you be strong and of good courage. And that's what we that is our prayer for everybody serving us today. We are so grateful to our veterans. So we hope that you will. Continue to be strong be in his grip. And I hope that all of us will let any veterans that. We know how thankful we are for their service and any active duty members, how thankful we are that they have served us in this way, certainly is a blessing. So we sure do appreciate the ultimate sacrifice that so many of made and the sacrifice that so many continue to make what a blessing so happy Veterans Day. We don't have a lot of. Economic news coming out this week. We've got NF. I'd be numbers coming out tomorrow morning. So this is the national federation independent business small business index. This is a confidence number very important number a number that we watch very closely it sits at one zero seven point nine zero eight for all practical purposes, boy, I can't get much better than that. If it gets lower than that. It's not going to be a big deal. We get consumer price index. So we'll get a look at inflation. Those numbers coming out. On when on Wednesday. Now, we're looking at the headline number folks, you know, usually so many things we say we're looking at the core number not in this case in this case, we're looking at the headline number. So we are going to continue to look at that headline number on inflation. Because we want the headline number the headline includes food and energy. So we may see that headline number come down a little bit because gas prices have come down. I'm gonna talk about that in a minute on Thursday. We get some retail sales numbers. This is an October number for retail sales. And then Friday, we get a very important industrial production number for the month of October. That's about it for the week. We get some other numbers, but they are the important numbers. The numbers that we're going to look at very very closely as we go through the week. Haven't this death toll in the fires in California now reach at least thirty one what a sad sad situation. Some one hundred nine thousand. Homes being destroyed and people displaced and businesses and so on and so forth. This is such a tragedy. There's two hundred people missing we have thirty one dead, but two hundred people missing. Two hundred thousand have evacuated a so much of the area of southern California. So our prayers go out to them first responders those in the trenches, and they're dealing with this horrific these horrific fires my word. I'm sure they're exhausted. But we're so grateful for what they're able to do were praying. Just pray that the winds were die down a bit. We need the winds to settled down. So pray for that. Well, over the weekend, we read a lot of reports about oil stocks Auriol prices Plum plunging continuing to plunge. Well that was before yesterday and yesterday afternoon, we got actually it was this morning in our time. We got the Saudi Arabia and the OPEC oil minister talking about the idea of the global. Market seen a glut in oil indicating that he'd been saying that all along and he's been right? That has been the case so Saudi Arabian an effort to shore up oil prices to keep them from going too much lower. They're going to start to reduce production so Saudi Arabia's gonna reduce production. Or I I'm sorry. Yes. Saudi Arabia is but OPEC in general looking like they're come to an agreement to reduce production to try to keep our oil prices somewhere at a level that they can survive. And and we'll be good for oil companies to continue to work. So one of the things that I wanted to point out that I'm a little bit more concerned about than what's going on in OPEC is what is going on in Venezuela and Argentina where we're watching the Chinese government making huge investments in those areas in the oil industry. Now, they have always had made a lot of investments in those areas. Of South America for oil. Obviously they want to be that those countries number one. Export area. We're going to go to break. Eight four four seven zero seven.

"European stocks shrugging off any news coming out of Asia, Malaysia and some other areas in reference to trade. And so it looks like the euro zone and the United States you're kind of shrugging off any really down down play with trade and tariffs in those markets. And it looks like our market's gonna open very much in a positive territory there. Dow futures up as I said ninety points, Sweden of all places swinging took a right is that possible? But it sure would seem that way. It's pretty interesting to see the anti immigration party. Making some very strong gains in the recent election. So that's gotta have the Swedish government wondering as things turn a little bit more conservative a little bit more to the right Asia. Stocks are getting clobbered they're saying primarily due to President Trump's. Talk about Apple's production in China. To which Apple's not paying any attention to. But the market sure are. This week. We've got some economic data coming out first of all we've got six fed governors. Fred presidents around the country speaking this week six from two every day. This week. Obviously one of the days there's going to be two of them. Don't know what day that is. What day is that? I don't know. But apparently that would be today on Monday, so Rosengren and Bostick both speaking today. So it'll be interesting. Everybody's be watching that very closely to see what the tones going to be moving forward for the economy. Moving forward for interest rates, and how the fed is looking at these things we get. Very little economic data out today at three o'clock this afternoon eastern time. We get consumer credit numbers. This is a July number and we'll see where consumer credit. I suspect. It's going to go up a bit since it is July number July and August tend to be a little bit higher vacations and such not quite as high as high as leading up to Christmas. But nonetheless, expect that to be up tomorrow morning early. We're gonna get NFL reading national federation, independent business. They're small business optimism or sentiment index for the month of August. Based on what we saw in July, and based on what we have seen as far as productivity manufacturing jobs and other correlating numbers to that. One would think that the NFL sentiment for small businesses would go up. I don't know if it doesn't it's not a big deal sitting at one zero seven point nine we'll say one zero eight one. OH a pretty decent number to say, the least something we haven't seen in many many years. Going back probably twelve years prior to right after the election when it went up over one hundred. For the first time. So job openings reports. Also come out tomorrow. Remember, we're sitting at six point seven six point seven million job openings that's more people than we have unemployed. If we go by the B L S unemployment numbers. We'll see if that holds six point seven. Does it get worse does? I mean, I don't know. Is it worse or better? I would say it gets better. If it gets better. Does it go to six point eight maybe? We'll have to wait and see. It should come down by a couple hundred thousand one would think right? We saw two hundred thousand private sector jobs being filled. Larry numbers came out on Friday. But of course, that doesn't count take into a fact to affect that labor participation more people could be coming into the labor force. Eight four four seven zero seven fifty five thirty three if you got a question you can queue it up on Wednesday. We get producer price index producer price index. That generally leads to inflation will. No that's an August number because we get an August consumer price consumer price, not producer price. We get consumer prices come out so CPI coming out. They both the core. CPI in the headline CPI both sitting about two tenths of one percent right now that was a month of July. We'll see what August brings. Then on Friday, we get retail sales numbers. I generally don't care a lot about retail sales numbers. We can get just as much information out of consumer sentiment consumer spending numbers, but retail sales numbers for the month of July were very very good. They were sitting at a half of one percent or over a half of one percent X retail X autos. So we'll see where they come in. And then we get industrial production on Friday. I believe that's the most important number of the week. As far as I'm concerned, then we get more consumer sentiment numbers also on Friday. So we've got a fair amount of economic data Friday being the most important day not because of retail sales, but again because of industrial production.
