"We talk about? I mean, I want to talk obviously about the election, but you've got all kinds of insight and information that we don't have. So share it with us as you were able. Well, I'm going to give you an overall hope right out of the gate. How sad Eric okay? When I went to bed at 2 o'clock on election night, remember if praying speech, we are running the real-time crime desk and the last thing I seen was a $200,000 vote injection in Michigan into meant to pronounce sardine and Nestlé. Dana Nestlé saw they just crush Matt, right? Just right there in that moment. And Carrie Lake was down by a quarter million votes and you had like all these Blake mass masters down Mark fincham down. All these people, it looked like they were going to just steal the whole country, okay? And we watched in real time fetterman and Oz and they kept injecting 90,000 votes. This is coming, Eric. This comes right out of the Edison report, which is people don't realize what we knew this time. It codes out to all the things. We use the CNN feed. Every vote in the country goes through Edison research in New Jersey. So I want people to understand this that goes through there. So our cyber guys are reading this in real time and drawing these graphs and they showing impossibilities that can only be done by computers, right? So we're watching this happen and I go, wow, this is, you know, I'm praying I'm going, God, don't let him steal everything. You know, we have to, we really needed to have the House and the Senate to slowly destruction of our country, why we get rid of these machines. Well, I wake up in the morning, by the way, I'm gonna backtrack. The morning of the election, what miracle that happened, I get up and you hear from all over the country, 30 some states had machine problems. What? You know, it was beautiful.

Mike Gallagher: Salzburg Is Famous for Two Things

"Well, thanks, Carl, greetings from Salzburg, Austria, without a doubt, the most magnificent magical enchanted city I've ever seen in my life. I'm so glad we got to come to Salzburg. Of course, Salzburg is famous for two things for the tourists. Wolf Wolfgang, Amadeus Mozart. This was his birthplace, and where he spent much of his life. And of course, the sound of music, some scenes that were filmed there. The architecture, though, beautiful churches and cathedrals everywhere. This is a beautiful, beautiful Austrian city nestled on the river and with the Alps and the beautiful fortress believe it or not, overlooking the city that encloses all of it. Just the history, the charm, and of course everything is Mozart Mozart Mozart. This is where he was born. See this house here, with the yellow painting on the outside. That's the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He lived here for a number of years. He moved to Vienna, became disenchanted with Salisbury because he felt they didn't recognize his greatness and wow, his greatness, of course, prolific and felt the world over. Interesting facts about sound of music. We saw a couple of the places where the movie was filmed, including when Julie Andrews came running through the courtyard with her guitar. We saw where they had the big music festival where the von trapp family flat fleas at the end of the movie for the big dramatic finish, but our tour guide explained that locals don't really like the American version of the sound of music because the sound of music was the story of Maria von trapp was originally captured in the early 1950s by a German film. So the Broadway musical, which was mounted in 1959, and then the movie a few years later, for them was just a reprise and they didn't care. People in Austria and even Germany, they didn't care very much for the sound of music. Believe it

"I am speaking now. Again, with our friend who, I don't know how to put this. Robert Nestlé started this thing called inspire investing. And every time we talk, I get very excited about this. Robert, welcome back. It is my pleasure to be here, Eric. We're always talking about roughly the same thing. The idea of this company is to help people understand where their money is going, what they're doing with their money. And if their money is working against what they believe in, we're working for what they believe in. We have just had roe V wade be overturned finally. Thank God. Because it was horrible law. It doesn't even matter your position on abortion. It was just bad law. But we now see companies saying doing this virtue signaling that well, we are so pro abortion, we will pay for our employees to have an abortion, you know, we're not going to pay for them to help them have a kid and to pay for formula and diapers and rent and whatever we're not going to help them have a kid, but we'll help them have an abortion. Most people that I know would say, I don't want to do business with a company like that. Are they crazy? Are they kidding? How can we know whether we are dealing with that kind of a company or aren't? Yeah, we've been inundated with that question ever since late last week when that phenomenal decision came out. We're just praising God for that decision among with so many others. And all these companies coming out and saying that we're going to start paying for abortion travel to states where it's still legal. For the time being anyway. And so we had inspire that's what we specialize. And we have the most robust they said to help people understand what the companies that are in your mutual fund in your 401k, like what are they doing to from a moral perspective? Such as giving money to Planned Parenthood or in this case, we're compiling a really robust dataset on these companies in real time as they're coming out on a daily basis now.

Tucker Carlson Breaks Down Joe Biden's Funding of Crack Pipes to Crackheads

"Not. Here's Tucker last night on Fox News. Joe Biden, the president has announced another piece of his highly promoted equity agenda. That's the government wide effort to improve the lives of African Americans. You may recall that on his first day in office more than a year ago, the new president explained that equity will require determination and creativity. And this week, he proved that's true. Joe Biden's latest idea is to pay black people to smoke more crack. Going forward, the administration will send at least $30 million in tax money to nonprofits and local governments, so they can purchase safe smoking kits and supplies. According to HHS, these kits will contain Joe Biden approved pipes that will allow beneficiaries of the equity agenda to smoke crack cocaine, as well as crystal math. Some say it's about time. Soros aligned NGOs have long complained that marginalized groups in this country don't have adequate access to a legal narcotics or the tools to use them. With this new program, Joe Biden will finally close the crack gap for too long in America, quality crack pipes have been the domain of rich white men like so much else. Here's the president's son, for example, smoking crack and bed at the four seasons. You'll notice the beautifully designed custom crack pipe. It's cooling bowl, nestled in the high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. 100 Biden smokes crack, he does it in style. But not everyone in this country is so fortunate. Try to toast some rock in west Baltimore sometime. You may have to make the pipe yourself from tinfoil or a broken car antenna are inner cities are pipe deserts. Talk about the new Jim Crow. Bull Connor would be proud. Bull Connor didn't think black people deserved new crack pipes. Joe Biden is going to change that. You know, the only thing funnier than listening is watching Tracy my phone screener. She's got her tissue out. We are laughing so hard. Tracy is crying. She's laughing so hard. But the problem is, I'm ready to cry for real. This is Biden's America.

If you're looking at the rice out of your fabric you poke a hole through your fabric with an all and all and awol often comes with any cam. Set that you buy. You are looking down at the right side of your fabric. You poke a hole in your fabric you take a cap and put it pointy side down through that hole you flip it over and what do you see you see the wrong side of your fabric and you see a little tiny sharp point from the snap cap pointing right at you. You then take either your bowl or your cup and nestle it right on top and then you have a little tiny sandwich you take that sandwich and you transfer it to the base of your pliers. Squeeze the pliers applying firm pressure. The protrusion of the cap will be flattened effectively. Securing either the cap or the bull in place. The pliers can either be used manually. Just a loose tool in your hand. This is called the k. One or the k. To snap pliers set slows are hand tools. You can also use a professional snap.

But it is a press tool that's designed to be used on a desktop. You bolt it to your desktop. You can sit and use it in. Press it instead of having to squeeze your hand.

This makes the us look great. Yeah no also in switzerland to yeah. They're a big part of this now. in two thousand eighteen a company called the changing markets foundation is issued a massive report on the infant milk products sold by nestle in forty different countries again to eighteen. It found that nestle's products often contradicted health advice given by nestle reps in public statements. The company was found to make health claims around the world about probiotics and prebiotics that were prohibited by european health regulators. Several products were advertised as the closest breast milk but each of these products actually had wildly different ingredients quote. The report concludes that nestle is not driven by nutritional science but instead by a sharp and prioritized focus on profit and growth at the expense of infants and their parents. So no it doesn't surprise me. No damn yeah yup. That's all like pretty recent history. Like yeah this this story that you're telling me like we're still in the thick of it. Yeah we're still dealing with it. Yeah i mean the good thing is that now more doctors are aware of. What's going on and there's more data on like so it's not you know it. You're not dealing with as much of a problem as like well. There's more plausible than identity for these companies to hide behind but they are still engaging in practices.

"Feeding the doctor said jim would survive. But unicef estimates that more than one point five million other third world babies die each year because aggressive promotion of infant formula persuades their mothers to bottle. Feed rather than breastfeed and again. I'm quoting here when i say third world. That's how it's written at the time so that article that that nineteen ninety-one. La times article is interesting in part. Because gyms i think it's jimmy j. Ym jim's parents were middle class in the ivory coast which means they had the resources in the nutrition for his mother to have breastfed him but his mom's working his dad's working they decide to formulas going to be great and they give. They have like their her. Mom is taking care of the baby because they're both out of the house a lot And when interviewed his parents claim that nestle's ad campaign and the free formula nestle gave out in the ivorian hospital where they had their baby convinced them that formula would be the easiest and healthiest way to feed their baby. It was also fashionable in. This is an up and coming upwardly mobile middle class family right Jim loses more than half of his body weight before his parents take him to a. Us financed oral rehydration centre quote. The baby looked like a famine victim belly. Bloated stick like limbs a tiny skeleton clearly visible through a stretch of skin. Most of his hair had fallen out. What was left had turned orange a sign of severe malnutrition. Well other children at the clinic. Were being fed with spoon. Oral rehydration fluid. Jim was so weak. Drip had to be attached to his nose for the fluid to be pumped it with a syringe. Yeah i don't even know what to say at this point because like this is just like like actually super depressing. It's it's real bleak. Yes a real bad time probably shouldn't be legal to do any of this Certainly to advertise for stuff in general now one study showed that babies on the ivory coast like jim fed on formula rather than breast. Milk are four times as likely to die again. That's not in general that's in these these locations but these locations are a huge chunk of the market right outrage over cases like gyms convinced the ivorian health authorities to regulate and restrict the distribution of nestle formula at hospitals to mothers writes. This becomes a problem. The health authorities. The they're like well. Let's stop giving.

That's thousand hundred dollars so you're talking a good amount of money. Nestle accounted for fully half of that share with us companies. Like the american home products corporation abbot laboratories in bristol myers making up the rest. Horrific stories like this increasingly reached the front page of newspapers. Like the new york times when the jamaican woman brought her two babies to alan jackson's clinic at the university of the west indies in kingston. The pediatrician was shocked by their condition. Her four month old son only five pounds to less than at and her daughter wasn't even worship at eighteen months. She weighed only twelve pounds and soon lost four more with.

Two youngest their diet since birth had been infant formula because the family income averaged only seven dollars a week. The mother had too heavily. Dilute the expensive formula to make it last longer for the four month. Old baby dr jackson later told senator edward kennedy subcommittee on health and scientific research. One ten feed should have lasted for something like just under three days. She said that one. Tina feed last two weeks to feed both of the children. That's so brutal.

"Their babies with formula safely to the same extent even in cases where mothers were extremely perfectly careful about all these other steps which is a very high standard and a lot of these places. You still would have to deal with the problem that babies often don't finish their bottle of formula right like usually it's a couple of meals right and every hit every bottle isn't free moms have to pay for that and these people are very poor so they wouldn't throw out a hafer two-thirds phil bottle of formula. They would store it and because they don't have power they have to store it at room temperature and a tropical country where it will suffer explosive. Bacterial growth during that period. Another problem was over dilution because again the women that nestle and company our marketing towards are extremely poor so they can't afford all of the formula. They need to buy an order trait. Use it properly so they water down because once they've gotten hooked on the stuff. They're not producing enough breast milk. You can't go back past a certain point right. That's the way this shit you're stuck. One study in. The journal of tropical pediatrics found that in indonesia only one quarter of women surveyed mixed there formula reasonably close to its recommended strength. That study noted that the women they surveyed were actually better off financially than most women in the country with higher levels of education. That just didn't have access to enough funds in order to make that work among poorer groups of mothers the researchers concluded that app many after getting hooked on formula had to stop using formula because they couldn't afford it at all and since their milk had dried up they would ride up replacing formula with cheaper and much less nutritious substitutes like rice milk and sugar. Tea what else you got to give the baby something. So basically you end up with a bunch of kids that are suffering from malnutrition. maybe dying race inclusion. You sure do huge numbers of them in the millions. We'll talk about that in a bit. So we'll all this is ramping. Up right the fifties through the seventies. There's ample documentation from an early period. That formula even best conditions is not as nutritious as breastfeeding to.

"Light conditions of the rural areas development also brought about social changes for the women in the newly urbanized areas of africa as women in these areas began working for wages. they had less time to breastfeed. Nestle's promotion of formula is an easier quicker way of feeding appealed to these women in nigeria formula. Ads played on the cultural concept of power and strength e. g. bottle-feeding was seen to hasten physical development. Now there are a number of things that made this dangerous. We're gonna talk about nutrition in a second but the first and largest problem with pushing formula over breast milk in the global south is that breast milk is sterile. It is very safe. Formula is only a safe is the water you add to it and many of the developing places where it was being hawked. The hardest lacked access to clean water. Nestle's instructions even the instructions places. They would that they handed out. In places like the ivory coast presumed the person preparing the formulas using modern appliances instruction such as. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap. Each time you have to prepare a meal for the don't really work in say malawi. Where sixty six percent of households didn't just lack clean water. They lacked any kind of running water facilities whatsoever. Sixty percent of homes in that country had no indoor kitchen. Now in many of these places communities villages would share one food preparation area. The most common setup for that is what's called the three stone kitchen. This is less of a kitchen in the modern sense of the word and moral way to set up a fire pit in order to enable more efficient cooking. The gist of it is you have fire. Built in between three large rocks. Very large rocks. And you have a big cooking pot in the center resting on the rocks so the rocks both hold up the pot and also absorbent conduct heat. It's a good way to cook if you're out in the woods with a group of people and you lack access to you know a camp stove or something but as you'll notice from that description there's generally just one big pot that people use to prepare meals for the group. That kind of situation makes it very difficult for mothers to boil water to properly stabilize their bottle. It also makes it difficult for them to boil water in order to have clean water for the formula. And even if a mom could make all that work there still the issue of very little cool running water in most of these communities. So if you manage to boil the water to clean the water and you use pot boiling water to sterilize. The bottle both of those things are hot as hell to wait for it to cool down here to be very careful to make sure that nothing gets on it. During the time well it's cooling down or once you fill the bottle you have to dunk it. An unclean cold water to cool it down which can still transfer infections.

"On entering maternity wards by copying down the names and addresses of new mothers dubiously. spies into the hospitals. Find the names and addresses of new mothers and then go to their homes to leave free samples in the philip last creepy today. They ride the only thing they need to do. Is just look at your browsing history and then you start getting like shit sent in the mail with a bunch of pamphlets about baby formula. So yeah you know. When you had to hire her spice. So in the philippines milk nurses would stock public housing projects looking for clotheslines. That baby clothes on them out and then basically they would see like a diaper right and then they would go to that door and offer formula gross. I know right. that's fun. It gets a lot worse. So nurses were just one part of the sales pitch. The other chunk was a marketing blitz. Again we've all watched the documentary madman. Fifty sixty seventy is when the advertising industry is fucking exploding in these formula companies are very cognizant of that and they develop their own comprehensive ad blitz aimed at convincing women that their breast milk was inadequate. So again because you have to be a little careful with this. You can't say breast milk isn't as good as formula. But you can say your breast milk particularly milk as a poor woman in the global south is not as good as our formula just using shame as a marketing. Technique is a tried and true way of getting you to buy stuff. Nestle's ads for lack dejan. Advertise that it was for use quote. Wind breastmilk fails in the nineteen fifties boarding. Put out a radio. Jingle in the belgian congo that went and this is rough one. The child is going to die because the because the mother's breast milk has given out mama mama. The child cries. If you want your child to get well give it. Klm milk like jingle starts with the child going to die your own version of that. Mix it you nice rendition. We'll get daniel to put a beat behind it calm so one of the first ngos to recognize that. This seems like a bad idea. What's going on with the formula. Industry is cold war on want. They recognize the problem. They mobilized to fight it. They put out publications where the the tactic and they point out that the goal of these companies to is to make poor women fear that they're malnourished and that as a result they were going to harm their newborn baby with inadequate milk. This was a confidence trick. And when these women felt anxiety and fear their milk would dry up as a result. So there's this understanding when you can make them scared that their milk is adequate. Because anxiety can affect breast milk production we can actually make them produce less breast milk in a paper on this. It's pretty comprehensively fucked up in a paper on this. The war on want pointed out that formula companies were playing on something called the letdown reflex quote which controls the flow of milk to the mother's nipple. This is a nervous system mechanism and quote. Mothers are deciding that the that bottle is necessary to the milk she provides some others be even become so concerned about not having enough milk that they will not have enough now. The right up by found from the university of oklahoma's college goes into more detail. Quote nestle took advantage of this system by promoting the view that breastfeeding is complicated and prone to failure nestle's advertisements such as their slogan for lack degen instill fear and anxiety and mother's about their inability to breastfeed which can have the physiological effect of actually stopping lactation forcing the mother to continue to buy formula..

That's why there's physician recommended cigarettes and like the fifties pretty pharmaceuticals copies. This playbook for oxycontin right like this. The these are all like everyone's paying attention to what everybody does because it keeps working now all of this. This whole system developed through the thirties and forties and the formula industry exploded in the fifties when birth rates soared after world war two western women prime to trust formula by their doctors embraced it as a more scientific in the superior way to feed their children they also saw it as liberal tory because in a lot of ways it was. It means. you're not. You're not necessarily a stuck at home right. If you're a working mom. It makes it a lot easier to do that. Makes it a lot easier to have a career of your own. the impact. this had was astonishing. Roughly sixty eight percent of mothers born between nineteen eleven and nineteen fifteen breastfed.

"As this right up in the new internationalist makes clear in exchange for giving discharge packs of formula two new mothers hospitals. Get free formula for in house use together with equipment literature and a package of other services. The most insidious of these is a free architectural service to hospitals. Which are building or renovating facilities for newborn care. Abbot laboratories helps design at least two hundred maternity department a year in the us alone. The land of these centers whether by accident or design makes your breastfeeding difficult. Mothers are physically separated from their newborns nurses and conveniently administered donated formula and ready to mix bottles but establishing breastfeeding is more troublesome because instead of rooming in mothers and babies together babies must be carried long distances to their mothers for feeding a task that nurses resent the investment in architectural plans yields dividends in the form of new bottle feeding customers the entire lifespan of the building. That's sneaky this is written in. This is nine hundred seventy three. But they started doing this in the thirties and forties right. They start specifically pushing.

We're gonna be talking about a lot of flaws in the industry but it is a by all objective science best to use breast milk. If you possibly can there's less also there's a lot of shame for women who can't breastfeed and like it's totally okay. If you can't breastfeed is really hard. From what i hear super painful. So formula is great for people who can't do it. Yeah we're not trying to be anti formula here. We're anti the way companies start to market this. That's where the problem is a wonderful invention that saved a lot of lives and anri nestle is not a. He's kind of a weird dude but he's not a bad guy here. He just invents a good formula. It's it works. Pretty well and honoree himself wrote that quote during the first months. The mother's milk will always be the most naturally nutritious and every mother able to do so should herself suckle her children. So they're getting he's like. This is for people who can't don't have. There's a lot of reasons while you might not be able to. That's who i'm making this for. It's not supposed to replace breastmilk. Say i'm still waiting for the bastard to come in here. It's kinda sounds kinda fine. He's fine he never becomes a bastard that i'm aware of its nestle corporation. Okay okay okay. All he's done. This tried to feed babies now people being people they quickly developed in a lot of the western world and attitude. That formula was superior to breastfeeding. Some of this was for again. Aesthetic reasons right. It's easier on people's breasts. It's more cosmetically pleasant. A lotta people see it that way so they prefer formula in because wealthy and educated. Women start to use formula rather than breastfeed a lot of poorer women who kind of like paid attention to what's happening in the society pages. Think that formula must be better too because like oh well like these. The celebrities basically are doing the rich people are doing. I should get. It must be better if the rich people are doing it. The usa formula grew common even among mothers who did not need it and the nestle corporation made bank gradually however doctors began to recognize problems.

"So they're not cheap one dollar a bottle that's a Good amount of money back then and this is cutting edge science at the time rain. So how far a bottle go did i mean. I don't know how big is a bottle at this point. I think you're talking like a day or so worth of feeding baby that's pricey yep now this all brings us to the tale of one honoree. Nestle i'm going to guess what he winds up doing He came from a german swiss family and he had an eclectic early career that included apprentice a pharmacist and becoming a massive rapeseed entrepreneur which is an unfortunately named seed in the eighteen forties. He got into the lucrative nut oil business which is unfortunately named oil and he started roman absent and selling carbonated mineral water in the eighteen. Fifty started producing gas lights and fertilizers. So this guy's doing a lot of stuff we're going from a pharmacy to making gas lights and fertilizer and at some point along the line we don't exactly know. When he started in the eighteen sixties. He decided to set his very weird mind to the task of creating a fully artificial baby formula. When i say artificial would i mean is you. Don't have to add any kind of milk to it. it's powder and you just add water right. That's what a obviously there's natural but that's when an artificial formula is don't have to add an animal's milk to it now. I've heard a couple of different stories purporting to explain why he started down. This path one is that he had a neighbor who was having trouble nursing her child. Another is that he and his wife. Although childish child lists themselves were horrified at the high rate of infant death in their part of europe and wanted to do something about it now during this period breastfeeding had become increasingly unpopular among wealthy women And there's a number of reasons for this. One of them is that formula started to become a thing. So it's it's fashionable to use formula. It's the newest idea. It's science like better than milk right. Yes there's also an idea that i mean not an idea the fact that breastfeeding you can't wear the same fashion right like it. Changes the kind of things that you were able to wear particularly in this period and so wealthy women don't like having to.

I'm so ready for it. I mean there's pieces of that in here. It's it's more fucked up than that.

"Nestled at the base of the majestic Rocky Mountains. This show is about empowering you people and organizations that want to optimize their assets, minimize taxes and empower They're authentic wealth. Folks, you may very well be aware I have a YouTube channel wherein I post an in depth answer to a financial question almost on a daily basis. It's free. When you subscribe. It's called three dimensional wealth. And recently I answered the question how to not lose money during market downturns because that is ask actually, thousands of times every month. Now, my favorite strategy that maybe you've heard me talk about on this show is indexing. And many times people immediately, especially financial advisors. Think I'm talking about index mutual funds? No, uh, totally difference. See, an index mutual fund would be where you invest your money into a mutual fund that specializes in buying stocks, bonds and so forth or in the various end. This is Like the S and P. 500, The Standard and Poor's 500, The Dow Jones of the Russell 2000, the Barclays US Dynamic Balance Index. These are indexes or indices is That you can actually put your money in the market diversified through those various companies, so that would mean your money is exposed to the market volatility. Indexing is designed to get rid of the market volatility impact when the market goes down, because your money is not invested in the market, okay? So indexing is one of my favorite strategies that I like to use. It's a strategy, not a product is the message here. And so one of my favorite vehicles is a maximum funded index. Universal life insurance contract, But not just any. I you all their abbreviated I U l index universal life. Because I would venture to say that over 99% of index Universal life policies out there owned in America are not structured properly or funded correctly. To pass what I call the laser test. Laser is an accurate him that I use the stands for liquid assets safely earning returns. You've got to pass the liquidity test safety test ready return test and then make sure that you are maximizing not only the rate of return, but that it will be A grandfather to be tax free as the money accumulates, and when you later access the money to turn on income during retirement or later for whatever goal. You were saving the money for and then when you ultimately pass away, it will blossom in value in transfer income tax free. Now there's only one vehicle in the internal revenue code that I'm aware of. That allows you to accumulate your money tax free and then be able to access that money tax free, including all the gain that you made on where you put that money. And then when you ultimately die, whatever is in the account will increase in value it well, I call it blossom and blossoms and value and transfers income tax free. That is provided under three sections of the Internal Revenue Code today known as section 72, e 77 02 and one on one A, Uh, this has been sort of a sacred tax free cash cow. Protected in the Internal Revenue code for over a century. Okay, when you structure the index Universal life insurance contract properly and funded correctly. It turns into this tax free cash cow where you're able to earn rates of return over the life of the account, Averaging 7 to 10%, sometimes by rebalancing the indexing portfolio that you're linking your returns to You can earn returns higher than that. But during the lifetime of indexed universal life, its first was introduced in 1997 many times a minute 20 year periods. People of earned maybe 11 a little over 11% and netted about 10%, only one of the percentage points. Was the cost of the insurance that the iris that had to be there in order for it to qualify to be tax free under those three sections of the code now The point of this segment here is how to not lose money during market downturns. So how does this all come together? Well, if I have my money safely tucked in an insurance institution, and many of them are rated double and triple A that are rated sometimes six notches higher in safety than many banks and credit unions in this country. In fact, truth be known. Many banks and credit unions will invest 30 to 40% of their terror, one assets. That's money. They have to have liquid on hand and safe in case of a disaster run on the bank, so to speak, and they will put that into these multi trillion dollar Legal reserve insurance companies to increase the safety. And the rate of return, Okay. And so this is where many banks and credit unions will put their tier one assets. This is where they borrow money from us. Let's say in a pathetic 1%, you know, you put your money in a bank or credit union. It's actually an elected position. They just a benevolent institution paying you interest now, What are they doing with your money there, either loaning it back out again it at four or five times what they're paying you or they're putting it into an insurance institution or several of them where they're able to earn four or 5%. Which is again 4 to 5 times. That's 500% more than what they're paying you every million they borrow, and they pay 1% interest there. Only shelling out 10 grand a year they're turning around and making 40 or 50,000 year. Would you hire an employee for 10 Grand made you an extra 50 grand? I mean, would you buy a widget machine for 10,000? Major? An extra 50,000. So this is what these banks and credit unions do what you can bypass the middle man, so to speak, and increase the liquidity, safety and rate of return on your serious cash. This is money that you're studying aside for long term goals. This would be a goal five years or longer down the road. And so this is why my favorite vehicle, which I call the laser fund is a properly structured, maximum funded index. Universal Life insurance policy. And how does that protect me when the market goes down?.

500% 40 1997 30 10,000 4 America 7 five years Internal Revenue code Internal Revenue Code 5% Rocky Mountains 1% 50 grand 10 grand YouTube S and P. 500 one vehicle 40%
