Why are we calling it the full series? Well, number one, it's in the fall. Number two, it's a series. We start September 27th, that registration opens up today. Now, let me tell you, the early bird registration, the prices are very low. It's at cost for us. If you've attended these events, when you get there, you realize this is really special.

We have Andrew clavin in September 27th. I know I've mentioned that a bunch of times, but we also have an event in Houston, October 12th, the 13th, I forget, with James tour who is prominently featured in my book, is atheism dead. The question is, how did life begin? Kind of a big question. We asked the big questions at Socrates in the city. That's Houston. Then November 1st, we have David berlinsky, who answers the question, what is human nature that's back here in New York? Again, November 1st. We may do an event in Denver and we'll probably do another New York event in December. Those aren't confirmed yet, but the three confirmed events registration opens up for the first one as I said today and pretty soon we'll have we'll open up the registration for the October event in Houston and the November 1st event with David berlinsky back here at the union league club. The union league club is gorgeous. If you want to come and spend a couple days in New York, we could probably get rooms for you at the union league club way better and cheaper and infinitely more luxurious than any of the hotels that you can find in New York. So that's the Socrates and the fall series. You'll get that information today. Finally, before I go to our first guest, Brandon Tatum, I want to remind you that we're doing a fundraiser with food for the poor and this is kind of, how do I, how do I say it? Salem radio. You know all the Salem radio hosts were competitive with each other. So we got Sebastian gorka. We've got Hugh Hewitt. We've got dinesh d'souza, Charlie Kirk. And Mike Gallagher and a number of others. But we're kind of competitive because food for the pork comes to us and says, we want you to reach out to your audiences on behalf of these people who are suffering and so every day we kind of get an update of how the different shows are doing. And I think I'm pretty sure my audience is a little smaller than Mike Gallagher's and Hugh Hewitt's and those are giant shows Dennis prager, but I still feel competitive with them. Now, we kind of make a fun game of something that's deadly serious. People are suffering. People can't feed their kids. That's why food for the poor steps up.

"Challengers is raking in Republican cash. By Nick Pompey it's no secret that Georgia representative Marjorie Taylor Greene has a rocky relationship with her own party. In February she earned the ire of Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell after she participated in a conference organized by a white nationalist and in October she drew criticism for announcing on the House floor that her moderate Republican colleague representative Liz Cheney was a quote joke. For participating in an investigation of the January 6th the capital attack, which green has been accused of helping to incite. But a growing number of Republican lawmakers and lobbyists are hoping that it's payback time. In the weeks before Georgia's May 24th primary, federal election commission disclosures show an influx in Republican dollars to Greene's primary challenger Jennifer Strahan, a healthcare advisory firm executive with no political experience. That intro party support might not be enough to unseat green in the ultra conservative 14th district, experts say, as Greene has raised more than $8 million in total, more than any other incumbent in the state. But the support is telling a battle over the soul of the Republican Party is playing out in a slice of northwest's Georgia. Since launching her campaign in early July, Strahan has raised about $322,615, a hall that puts her on par with some incumbent lawmakers running for reelection in Georgia. For a challenger, that's a decent amount of money, says miles Coleman, the associate editor of the election forecaster, sabato's crystal ball at the University of Virginia's center for politics. Anytime a non incumbent raises more than 5 figures in a quarter, it catches my attention. Among Strahan's contributions are a $5000 donation from continuing America's strength and security pack, the leadership pack of Louisiana GOP senator Bill Cassidy, as well as donations from former Virginia GOP representative Barbara comstock and former Oklahoma senator Don Nichols, according to FEC disclosures. Several packs including value in electing women view associated general contractors of America and business industry have also given to Strahan's campaign. It was the first time the view pack has endorsed the candidate running against an incumbent. Strahan's campaign has also received contributions from a handful of Democrats, including lobbyist Jeffrey Forbes, as well as several Atlanta based consultants and business leaders. From July to December 2021, a third of her donations were from outside of Georgia. We believe Republicans are moving away from Marjorie Taylor Greene in droves, says Jake Munson, Strahan's communications director. We hear that from her former supporters every day on the campaign trail. She's an absolute total embarrassment to Georgia and our party. Political insiders aren't so sure that conservative rabble rouser known universally as MTG. Still has about $3 million in campaign funds left on hand, a staggering sum for a district of less than a million people. It's Marjorie Taylor Greene against herself, says Jay Williams, a GOP strategist in Georgia. She's not going to lose unless she does something absolutely abhorrent. Other hopefuls lining up to challenge green in the May 24th primary include Eric Cunningham, James haygood, Charles Luton, and Seth since silian, who have raised just over $32,000 combined in campaign contributions. About a tenth of Strahan's hall. While Georgia is becoming a battleground between Republicans and Democrats, with a Democrat winning the state Senate seat in 2021, the 14th district remains squarely in Republican hands. It's considered one of the most Republican districts in the nation, according to a cook political report analysis of election results. The population is overwhelmingly white and largely rural. Most residents have just a high school education, and the median household income is about $10,000 less than the national average. For conservatives like green, this is home. Republicans don't typically throw out their incumbents, Williams says. And this is not a place you can easily do that, especially as a moderate. The district became slightly more moderate in late December when governor Brian Kemp signed Georgia's new congressional map into law, adding a small suburb of Atlanta to its district lines. Mainstream Republicans and lobbyists who back Strahan's campaign say they believe she will be able to get more stuff done in Washington than green, whose two year freshman term has been distinguished mostly by extracurricular affairs and incendiary comments. What good is having a conservative representative if they're not effective? Coleman says, if the GOP has all these members like MTG, they may take the majority, but they may lose it if this is the face of the party. Green is not known for pushing legislation or policy on the hill. And she is not a central player and day to today congressional affairs. Last February House Democrats stripped the AR-15 toting QAnon adjacent political novice of her committee assignments for pushing unfounded conspiracy theories and lies that included racist and anti semitic tropes. In March, free speech for people, a national election and campaign finance reform group filed a challenge with the Georgia Secretary of State's office that alleges green helped facilitate the violent capital insurrection, spurring quiet debate among members of her own party that she may be disqualified from office for violating the Fourteenth Amendment. The lawsuit may be the only thing that could end her political career, William says, it's literally that or finding a dead body in the back of her car, he says, but it's not.

"So? And according to the news that just came out this week, the Biden administration plans to freeze federal student loan payments through August 31st now. Student loan payments were scheduled to resume may 1st, but AOC went nuts. This is terrible. What about COVID? 43 million Americans owe a combined $1.6 trillion in student debt held by the federal government. And now, The White House is going to give the borrowers additional time to prepare for the payments. Kicking the can down the road. Megyn Kelly's right. Why should you and I pay for these snot nosed kids who want their college bills paid? 806 5 5 mic. The Mike Gallagher show. This is the most cowardly performance by the western democracies in our lifetime. It's really tragic. You have Putin every day ordering more and more attacks. 98% of the Mario pole has been destroyed. And we talk about, you know, we don't want to provoke him. Well, I think we ought to say, we're going to do everything it takes to defeat Putin in Ukraine. And I think anything short of that is a disaster for civilization. And the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike. I come into the studio today with again another just day of gratitude. I'm so awestruck by the generosity of this list of this listening audience. Nobody does it like you do. And I'm grateful that you're all on board with our partnership with the international fellowship of Christians and Jews. The stories coming out of Ukraine are beyond horrific you see it every day on the news. It's a very complicated conflict to be sure, but there's nothing difficult to in reacting with sheer anguish at the slaughter of the Ukrainian civilians. There are now reports that swastikas are being carved into the bodies of the victims of the Russian soldiers, little girls as young as ten years old are being raped, we've seen the images of the bodies everywhere, Mario pool, these towns that were beautiful. You want to see a heartbreaking Montage or a before and after. Look at the pictures of Mario before Russia's evil attack did what it did. I mean, the whole, it's unreal. And so the international fellowship of Christians and Jews came to us a couple of weeks ago and said, listen, we're able to bring planes filled with supplies into Ukraine. We can land at the airport in Ukraine, unload the plane and then we can load up the planes with refugees who are trying to escape Ukraine and get out of that hill and bring them to Israel, where they will get safe haven. It's a beautiful ministry, and we have come to you, let me share some numbers. The first day, $30,000, excuse me, 20,000 the first day. The second day yesterday 12,000. Let's keep it going. Let's match that first day. Because for $45, you will be able to send supplies into Ukraine and. Spirit a Ukrainian refugee out of Ukraine into the Holy Land into the land of Israel. Please go to Mike online dot com. Make your most generous gift today to the international fellowship of Christians and Jews. I know you came through in a huge way in March and we don't normally spend this much time focusing on helping people this way, but Ukraine is different. Ukraine is unprecedented, Russia's invasion is evil. And as the world is trying to grapple with Putin's obstinance and we're witnessing the massacre of men, women and children in Ukraine, we got to get those people out of there. And I feel such a sense of urgency, but knowing that we've raised over $32,000 in two days gives me such hope and appreciation not only for this audience, but for the American people. So I hope you'll go to Mike online dot com. Click on the crisis in Ukraine banner. You'll see it right there on the site. Mike online dot com. Please give what you can and donate to the international fellowship of Christians and Jews, thank you, thank you, thank you for helping to save these people because they need it. And I know God is just calling us to do some good. And we can. It's sort of a miracle. To see thousands and thousands of dollars come pouring in, please go to Mike online dot com and give today. And again, thank you so much for your generosity. I think about hardworking people. I guarantee you people with college debt. Who sent their son or their daughter or their children to college, are looking around, I think the college debt issue and the movement, the drive by the left and the progressives and the squad to force the Biden administration to forgive student debt. How the heck do you forgive debt? There's no free lunch. There's nothing free. And for any of us parents who have paid our children's college tuition, the expectation that AOC should have her college debt wiped out. By taxpayers, which is flat out socialism, this is absolute socialism, garbage..

So I'm praying that you will go to Mike online dot com right now to make your generous contribution to the fellowship, the international fellowship of Christians and Jews. Now let's talk a little bit about this weird alliance. I want to have some great analysis about why there's been this major shift. The left was always anti war. We know what the left is about. They're not pro military. They don't want war, they do now. Sean Penn even went on to suggest last night in this interview that we're doing very little, not doing nearly enough with Russia. It seemed to me that Sean Penn was almost suggesting we should be absolutely at war with Russia. Tucker Carlson has been denounced because he doesn't want war with Russia. Now, not wanting war with Russia, I would think, is a reasonable, fairly moderate position. But to the left, Tucker Carlson is an extremist. Tucker Carlson is a Putin puppet, Tucker is a Russian stooge. And all he has said over and over is we shouldn't get in World War three with Russia. This is not our war. This is an Eastern European conflict between Russia and Ukraine. We have our own borders to worry about. Before we can try to protect Ukraine's border. And go to war with Russia over it. I think most people agree. But let's talk about this strange, these strange bedfellows, the far left, the neocons, the never trumpers. They all want to go to war with Russia. Why is that? I'm going to ask for your explanation, and I'm going to give you my theory coming up. I've got a theory that I think is very accurate. I think it's clear as can be. Of course, it has to do with what's happened in this country over the last 5 or 6 years. We're going to dive into why so many on the left seemed to suddenly be hawks when it comes to handling Russia. Now they want World War three. I thought the left was anti war, but you know why they've changed? You know why they're aligned? With never trumpers and the neocons to me it's his plane is the nose on my face. Which is pretty big schnauz. Pretty prominent. I'll tell you what that's all about in just a moment here in the relief factor dot com studios. And in fact, if you want to chime in on this conversation, join us now..

"Is Kevin Dietz. How about some really good news this morning Special Olympics, Michigan debuted a multi million dollar fundraising campaign called Building Tomorrow's champions were South Christian High School will be turned into the world's largest special Olympics facility, the world's largest. Special Olympics. Michigan provides year round sports training and athletic competition to both Children and adults with intellectual disabilities. They serve more than 23,000 athletes and using the help of over 32,000 volunteers. It's very cool. They're raising millions of dollars and they're not done yet. Joining us now is Brian Kelly. Brian. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much. Thanks for having me on it for covering this really, really exciting project. You know, I started on the board just a few years ago but have worked with Special Olympics Michigan for many, many years and could not be more impressed with an organization that touches so many families so many lives. And this is this is a a huge, huge step for the families and the the individuals, the adults and Children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. That will have a place to call their own. Yeah, my daughter who just graduated from Kalamazoo College, She was a basketball coach for Special Olympics over in West Michigan and my gosh, she had more fun going over and playing with a referee now, or teaching kids how to how to play basketball and to just see the impact personally that this has On kids and families. It's so heartwarming and this this particular facilities over in West Michigan, but it really helps all of the kids throughout the state. That's right. In fact, this really will be. I think the eyes of the special IPIX community around the world will be on Michigan because of this huge, huge steps, see the way that the model normally works. Is that that our kids, they get the use of other people's facilities when they're not using them. So somebody else's facility and when, when it's empty When it's not being used, they say, sure, Special Olympics. You guys can use the The facility. In this case, the special Olympics athletes athletes will be the priority and but it will be an inclusion center is a place where where people with developmental disabilities and those without can come and and play sports together and be together and do all kinds of exciting things. There's healthcare aspects of it, too, in terms of managing the health and wellness of Of the of the athletes and and their families. So there's so many exciting things that are coming together in this spot, but it will be a training center. We've always had good success. Um, great success really, and our athletes in Michigan going on to compete at nationals and around the and and then at at the world competitions. And and having a state of the art athlete Training center is is going to be a big big boost to our special Olympics athletes from Michigan. Because, you know, it's a we think of it in terms of, um You know, it's a special Olympics. It's a whole range. I mean, some For some people, it's it's just being out and with others, and it almost doesn't matter that whether it's playing sports or doing something else. It's time with friends. We have athletes that are fierce, fierce can competitors and they are there to win. And so like the idea that there would be A training center, just like Olympic athletes have training centers, one where the priority is and the specialty is around programming and and training for special Olympics athletes. That is, it's really truly exciting. And it also creates a place where volunteers can come. You have 32,000 volunteers, and sometimes when you have, you know, Well, we're doing something over here and then over here when you have one place where volunteers know they can come and get organized and find out how to help. It just encourages more people volunteering. You guys have a goal of $20 million. How is that coming along? Well so far with Juliet Dragos and I, whose anchor and channel 13 in Grand Rapids. So her and I are co chairing the fundraising campaign, and we we went We launched it publicly last week after we hit $7 million raised, So we've got seven million, um, committed already and and moving forward. We know that that covers a lot of the initial work that purchased the building initial work that has to be done. Um, there's about 10 or $11 Million worth of. You know what one once we at that point, I mean, the the training center is going to be very operational. But when we try to turn it into would make sure that we get all the different. Uh um Activities and field some sports accommodated in this building. Um, you know, at the end of the day, we think the project is going to be about $20 million. So we've got a long way to go. But That 20 minutes. That's $7 million mark that we've we've had was was in the middle of a pandemic. I mean, we we started this really last winter. And I'm sorry. Winter of 2020. And, um And the generosity of the community has really been extraordinary. So we're excited about it very bullish on reaching the goals of the of the campaign so that we won't We won't cut any any corners and making sure that our athletes have the very, very best. And really the secret is to get a lot of businesses to give a little bit or what they can rather than to just get one big corporate sponsor to drop a check. It's It's really just overall better for the involvement of the total project if you can get more people involved. Yeah, so we this No contribution is too small. Naturally. No contributions too big either, But no contribution is too small to um to help with this, And so I really encourage people to go to The Special Olympics website. So s O m I, as in special Olympics of Michigan s so am i dot org and you can learn about everything that the organization is involved in. It really is a Model organization. Uh, the special Olympics is great across the board, but Special Olympics. Michigan, in particular is a national leader and international leader and inclusion sports in high schools, one of the most effective public private partnerships. You'll see anywhere in the world is between the state of Michigan and, um, and special Olympics for for unified sports in schools, and, um, and this is, you know, just the next Cutting edge thing.

"Or even said it that Houston is an affordable place to live? Is it, though a new report finds that while for some, it may be affordable. The majority of Houston and Harris County renters were paying more than 30% of their income on rent. Before the pandemic. There is a growing disparity between haves and have nots. When it comes to housing and more people are swept up in the have not category than you might realize to discuss. We're joined now by zoo, Middleton, the Houston and Southeast Texas, co director of Texas Hausers and Luis Guajardo, Urban policy research manager at the Kinder Institute for Urban Research, which published the report. Zero Middleton, Luis Guajardo Good morning. Good morning. It's very electorate. Hi. Good morning. As we chat. We'd like to know what you think. Is Houston still an affordable place to live or not? Do you find that as the years go on, You spend an ever greater percentage of your income on your home, whether you rent or pay a mortgage or have to contend with property taxes and upkeep. When you hear Houstonians talk about it being affordable here, Do you nod in agreement or shake your head in confusion? Let us know. At 713440 88 70 talk at Houston matters dot org or on Twitter at Houston matters. Luis. I heard this repeatedly when I first moved to Houston, more than eight Craig. Well, it's quite apparent that there are two realities pertaining the housing One for owners and one for renters. And so I really think it is about that perspective, but also the fact that we are trending. More and more to order renter Majority City. I mean, we were at 60% of the households in Houston are renter occupied and about 40% are owner occupied. In the county. That number is about 53%. Are owner occupied in 47% are renters, but it's also trending in the direction of the city. And when we talk about this, these two different realities we have to really consider the fact of how this household how our households are made up and home ownership is becoming increasingly harder and harder to access for a number of Um Number of reasons at the national level. But also there are some some local affordability challenges that I think this report does highlight and I think are are are important to consider, Um over half like you said over 51% of our renters paid more than 30% of their income on on housing, and that number has grown since 2000 and 10. Um, And so that's a concern. It's also very I think we have to be very clear that More than 90% of households that are cost burdened earned less than $35,000 a year, which, um Is about 60% of the county's median income. And so it's really concentrated, um at lower income families, and I think that's where where, especially when people are really having trouble finding housing and having a lot of housing and stability. Who were I think it's important to discuss Zoe was Houston, 10 or 20 years ago, much more affordable for renters than it is today. We think the important thing to note is that you can just grown so much, and we haven't has, um, creation or maintenance of of the houses. At the same time, I felt Houston has a reputation of being affordable. Um, but it's not for everyone and it's and it's certainly I believe just played out. And there's certainly great greater need today. Then there was, you know. 10 20 years ago. Um there's just not the new, affordable housing there, or the probably maintained pre existing affordable housing for people in the age that are spending you well over 30% of their incomes. On a rent. Luis is this strictly Houston area phenomenon or could the same be said about a growing rent divide between haves and have nots in most communities across America? Our report looked at mostly exclusively Houston in Harris County, but obviously working in this space it is. It is a phenomenon that is occurring nationwide.

All right, well, we're gonna have to table conversation on taxes. Here We go Tax way They don't go away. That's expand the text man. You know he's coming. He's coming. Bring him in on the show again, and, you know, taxes don't go away and retirement and without a good plan, they can wreak havoc on your retirement planning. It's unfortunate that they don't go away. But they don't and even on social Security. How does that work? Yeah, our favorite Uncle Sam is always with us right here who is with us, and he's with us doing retirement. So it's crazy, right? So we've been paying into the Social Security program for decades, right when we're retired, and some of us aren't aware that you may be paying taxes on the benefits. Once you retire, and so it's it's instance saying, right, I've been paying a Social Security tax. But then now, bye benefits is going to be taxed. It's just sounds crazy, right? But this unfortunately, this situations where he can be So it can't be taxed. Are they both the state and federal level? Fortunately, not that many states do it. The right. Yeah, there's about 13 states right now that off that actually taxes, so security benefits, You know, states like Colorado, Connecticut, North Dakota, Utah. There's 13 States that actually do that show If you want thing about retiring when you think of retiring is think about where you live, right, Williams. So security be attacks in the state that you live, And maybe it's a reason to move somewhere else, Right? But you can't escape federal taxes. You can't avoid the federal You can't escape the federal taxes case so So security benefits. Can be taxed depending on what's called provisional income, which is essentially your adjusted gross income, so provisional income can be anything from distributions from 41 case. Earned income. It can be rental income. It's basically provisional income income that comes in which is basically adjusted gross income, but get this safe. It also includes Half of your so security benefits. Wow. What a total. There's there, including half there, Including half of what? They're taxing, innit? Yes, yes. Oh, So let's say that you get a benefit of $2000, right? So They start calculating so $2000.24,000 years, so they're starting off with 12 Grand wide. And then there's the calculated starts, so they know you're getting 12 24,000 from so security, So the calculation calculator starts at 12,000. Then you're getting a pension distribution. We're getting rental income. You're taking some from some money from your 41 K and they start calculating and they're doing the gross number on it is opposed to what? You know what not minus what's taxed right during the gross number. And then if your individual basically if you're not married and that provisional income that calculation goes over 25 $25,000, or if you're married, and it goes over $32,000 and guess what? 85% of your so security benefits will be taxed. Wow. S so how do you get around? That has got to be some strategies. Toe lesson that at least there's some strategy. Celeste of that. You know, one strategy is is in how you're saving. Right s O. Britt. When I mentioned distributions from your retirement accounts, it's distributions from pretext account. So like your traditional IRA for three B for one K But not Roth. Distributions from Roth are not are not taxable, so that's a way to to kind of limited. Right is if if you if you did some planning ahead of time, okay? And he had some funds that were that were tax differently from 41 case to Roth, a couch. When that when it comes time to turn in these assets into income, you can have a strategic plan of making some distributions from Roth, making some distributions from traditional and that way you can balance out the taxes. And speaking of Roth and being proactive in your strategy, because it's some point all those retirement funds that were tax deferred. The tax man is going to come with his hand out. He's coming with his hand out on drink about social security right there. They're the ones who are kind of the check. So you better be be aware that you know you want to make sure that you're settling all of all of your taxes when it comes Tonto, uh, your tax bill during retirement, so Yeah, And sometimes you can't avoid it right. Sometimes you just can't afford because these aren't large numbers or what I say for a married couple filing jointly $32,000, and they're starting with half of your benefits, so you may not be able to avoid it may not. You may not, but just be aware it's about being aware understanding that 85% of your benefit. Could be text if you if you don't do much planning ahead of time, and that's on social Security, But then you you're gonna have income taxes on your retirement fund with rolls. Right? So that was just Social Security. Now, when we're talking about withdraws from your four from your tax deferred to cabs like your 401 K or IRA. You didn't pay the taxes on the contributions. Right? So that's one of the beauties behind the 41 case. Contributions are on a pretax basis. You don't pay any taxes on the growth, right? So it's tax deferred. So at the time, girls good at the time, right? So you don't pay any taxes on it, however, who doesn't like that our favorite uncle, right? So our favorite uncle was going to say. All right, Well, now you're making withdrawals. We have to pay taxes. And on and Ur text at at your It's tax at your highest tension. It's earned its earn income at that point. What is tax just like earned income right? So, so that's a way that some people aren't aware of it. There aren't aware of the taxes that can be Uh, assess to them when they're making these distributions from their retirement accounts. And so if you if you aren't aware of it, or if you're not budgeting the income taxes that can be part of your that can be part of your plan. You better budget for those taxes because those distributions will be Again, those distributions from pre tax account will be taxed. So what should you figure then on that if you're taking looking at the net they after tax what about 78? 80%? I mean, what do you think? I mean, It's definitely a percentage of that. You've got to look at it. It's not 100%. You can look at his guaranteed income. Oh, okay. You see what I'm saying? You got a budget based on I don't know what whatever the tax rate would be on it basically tax rate. Right? So it's your distributions, Plus responses. Distributions, plus four one k. Plus, I'm sorry. Your distributions put your spouse's distributions..
