"It's called top Trump, backer, financed supreme court confirmation fights through shadowy network and discusses is Leonard Leo in the federal est society, the federal society that name sounds familiar. They are the people who have been giving Republican politicians, and particularly Donald Trump's administration a list of federal society approved supreme court nominees. And so Neil Gorsuch. Ambert Cavanaugh are both from the federal society federalist society approved and more importantly federal society supported and Leonard Leo is a name that I worry five years from now we'll turn into the cokes where we make him a boogeyman. But at this stage of the game, Leonard Leo is a name that I think needs to be known a lot better. So this article begins with the picture. That's emerging. Of Leonard Leo is that of a man who saw the Trump presidency as an opportunity to breach as an opportunity to branch out said Robert Maguire, the research director for citizens for responsibility and ethics in Washington over the last two years, we've seen him go from being a very behind the scenes actor known for being able to rally conservative donors for legal fights to someone who's taking a more central role. Most of the arms of the network are nonprofit groups meaning that the details of the finances in operations go unreported for nearly two years, which means we're two years behind Leonard. Leo right now, it's very clever. So when n reports to the Internal Revenue Service, do that's when we find out one such report recently obtained by the Daily Beast provides new details on arm of Leo's advocacy, network that was until recently, completely unknown.

Welcome back to the parcels good morning. Thank you very much for having me on again. This is very exciting. Yeah it's my pleasure as well. I think when it comes to this subject <hes> you've been a very good job off constantly publishing great ideas great insights and now you have this survey so I thought it made sense to bring you back the you you know the subject more than anybody else. Thank you yeah. I've been reading a lot of data. Hopefully I'll be able to provide some interesting insight so before we jump into that I know I already alluded that in my opening here or the <hes> I wanted to find are like what have you being up to in the last year or so and what intonation ten ninety nine since we last spoke yeah we'll as if folks who haven't heard that previous episode May Not Know My day job is as a as a freelancer. I am a marketing consultant who earns my living on a GIG basis. I have for many many years and that's grown into something substantial business and a steady career and as I had a lot of questions about how to manage that business and become more entrepreneurial and creative about it I was looking for information and not always finding information I wanted and that gave me the idea for a side project called nation ten ninety nine. I know you are and Canada yourself and your listeners are all over the world so you may not recognize the reference to ten ninety nine which is the tax form that in the U._S. independent contractors used to report their income so you can think of W.. TWOS as people in traditional role base jobs and ten ninety nine people in who are doing good base work so nation ten ninety nine is a resource for career and business this advice for people who are really pretty experienced and further along in their freelance work and that's that's one update nation to ninety nine. It started out kind of all over the place any kind of advice for all comers who are in the GIG economy. It's much more focused us now on people who are really experienced and have established themselves in a proven that they can do their work and make a living at it but they're trying to get to the next level and so we provide pretty advanced in sophisticated advice for people who are a little bit further along in their freelance careers and in some ways I think your publication and mine is welcome. Matters Dot com complement each other not not meaning to be a plug Fakhri medicine. It's fine what e- focused on as like getting started and freelancing career getting your first clients and how to get started with what others have done and one's eighty to certain level. Your publication is a great addition where they can talk about continuing that building a career earning more income dealing with taxes and all that so i. I think it goes hand in hand and what I like about nation ten ninety nine hundred is God very niche and advice. There is very really specific and you provide meaningful insights. Thank you very much I as a marketing consultant would I'm doing like many other marketing consultants around content marketing and I have some pretty firm convictions about what content marketing ought to do and what not ought to do in what it should not do is just say the obvious and repeat what's already Google my theory what I always say to my clients is the you know what I'm going to help you do is say something to your readers that is google that if they google this subject they're not gonNa find the answer to that's the whole otherwise why are we producing white papers and blog post and everything for your website and has been my approach with nation to ninety nine also so I don't want anything on there that anybody would know if they read the first five pages Google. That's actually great marketing if any marketers listening to this that it's goodbye to moving onto conversation Robert last time we spoke you in the early stages of data but now you're done an extensive report. There's a survey there's an info graphic. So why don't you start us off but what you have learned to resources in a way what I didn't say the year and a half after I was last on your podcast is really trying to gather up all the existing data so we have on our site what I think of as literature review or a Meta analysis of all the existing surveys and studies and government data that we can find the touch in any way on the freelance workforce with the economy workforce so you can think of those headlines that you frequently see that say one third of us for freelancers or half of us will be freelancers by a given date although studies that you see referenced all the time we've got all Louis gathered up and synthesized analyze and dig deep down into the tables and so there's that that folks can visit in that will give pretty clear picture as clear picture as possible about the freelance workforce 'cause the truth is even though I'm talking about say four five dozen studies compared to the data about the economy in the workforce in general it is not a robust set of data so the picture about the freelance workforce is still very fuzzy but what's there we have all vacuumed up in synthesized and sort it out and then we did our own study last spring a we distributed a survey a very short survey with only about ten or fifteen questions on it and where it was distributed was to freelancers in particular in networks works where freelancers are actively looking for information to try and understand where they get information what resources they need what tools they still need what they're looking for what they're struggling with and then we spent the summer analyzing the results said put out this record a couple months ago that I'm calling the career freelancer status report so when you findings came across the storm call career freelancers of tell us more about that at what stage as a freelancer become a career oh I guess whenever they make up their own mind but you know one thing that other studies have shown is that this kind of two year startup period that most people if they're gonNA make it they start hitting their income goals. After about two years in the first couple of years is understandably a struggle and you can think of it is very similar to a startup companies startups. This don't aren't profitable from day one generally and so there was another study that showed that freelancers begin to hit their income goals after a couple years and then when you look at sort of attitudes about freelancers in more than eighty percent of some say they strongly prefer this way of working more than seventy percent of them say they chose this way of working so this is in contrast. I think the traditional reputation about freelancers which is that it's a euphemism for between jobs meaning. I got fired or laid off and I'm calling my so freelance until I find another job. That is just no longer. The case is there's no stigma about it. People are definitely actively choosing this as a career as a way of working anyway whether or not they intended as a long term career and more than half say they would not go back to a traditional role base job at any price and what's definitely happening as the full time freelance workforce in the U._S. is growing more than three times faster. Faster than the workforce overall and variety reasons we can go into about that what I'm finding in the report that we did is that freelancers who are actively looking for information. They've been doing it a surprisingly long in time so it the people who are active in networks active on nation to ninety nine this was distributed in a lot of places the folks who are actively looking for information this was probably the most surprising finding for me is the plurality the biggest the largest answer her the biggest group set and that was a twenty seven percent said they'd been doing this for ten years or more and that if you bundle up everyone who said had been doing it three years or more that was sixty three percent of respondents so what I find interesting is been. You're talking rubbish that came to my mind is in transition freelancer beaten. Call it that way but in my short stint when I worked at a cruising one of the things they commonly saw in marketing and I._T.. People were laid off and they would be looking for the job and they definitely you want full time but they were willing to take a contract position to up their skills to give it a try or even as a means of making income what you're saying as where do you find out is that is shrinking. Komo people are consciously looking to freelancing. That's right these share of people out of all freelancers the share of them who actively chose it is on the increase in the share of them who felt feel like they were forced into it. Unwillingly is on the decrease and then what's also finding interesting and this is not from Marchetti but from the others that I reference that we synthesized also interesting is that the folks that you're talking about or kind of pushed into it unwillingly or what they anticipate to be temporary a growing number of them then discover they prefer it and and don't go back okay so there was one study for example from M._B.. Oh partners and I WANNA give a shout out to some a couple of other excellent studies imbo partners and the other one is by up work and freelancers union. Both of those are done annually with some good trendline data the MBA Yo partner studied looked at what happened after the two thousand eight financial crisis and what they found was that it freelancing increased partly for the reason you're describing people lost their jobs that got pushed unwillingly into the freelance economy enemy and then as hiring picked up they did not return to full-time employment so a significant number of people who go into it thinking. It's going to be temporary while they're between jobs discovered as a career. Don't go back yeah. That's interesting so now because the things have changed economies much better all this people who my speculation is all these people as you said the hat to take it adopt by now they they like that whole lifestyle now and they now full do that for time right right and so what we found in our analysis are meta-analysis. Is that an against U._S. and we think it's something similar in the E._U.. Is that if you look just at the folks who are full time freelance so the numbers that you see in the headlines include <hes> people are part time people who are very very occasional. Even people who may be only had ten ninety nine income contract income only once in the last year they get counted in those big headline numbers say a third of his freelancers if you sort it out to people really just act a full time I'm freelance in lieu of a traditional role bauge job. It's about eleven percent of the U._S.. Workforce that sounds like a much smaller number but when you think about it eleven percent of the U._S. workforce being fulltime freelance means that self employed as a group hope is bigger than any single employer in the U._S.. It's bigger than the federal government bigger than the standing U._S.. Military bigger than Walmart so it's an enormous portion of the workforce today talking about the depending on the statistics you look at in the U._S.. The population is at anywhere from three hundred three.

"But for banks a thirty year mortgage with a fixed interest rate didn't make a lot of sense the interest they had to pay to depositors and to borrow money wasn't fixed. So in the nineteen. Seventies. Congress took care of that problem it authorized Fannie Mae and Freddie MAC to buy mortgages from lenders taking the risk off their books. So again, we've some government intervention that. Okay. I know problem making thirty year loan because I know Fannie, and Freddie, you're gonna buy it. And that in a nutshell is how the thirty year mortgage became king. But maybe it shouldn't be don't forget the thirty year term did not come down on a tablet engraved. You know that says thirty years is the right number eight is Edward Pinto says for starters, the thirty year mortgage pushes up home prices by making it easier for buyers to manage bigger loan. They end up paying a lot more interest over the life of the loan and the amount of principle. Relative interest is very small, and it takes a very long time to build up equity. Okay. That at this point the thirty year is so ingrained in the home buying system that last month, according to the mortgage Bankers Association eight percent of application. Were for. Yeah. That one I'm Amy Scott for marketplace. There are going to be eleven statewide propositions on the California ballot next Tuesday. How number ten turns out is going to be closely watched by landlords and tenants alike about rent control. It would expand the power that local governments mostly cities have to make more apartments and rental houses subject to limits on rent increases. It's a hot button issue here in the state where housing prices are really really high. But if I don't pretend does kind of reflect the shortage of Ford -able housing across the country from KPCC in Los Angeles meant to know co has more on a recent day in LA's exposition park neighborhood, Steve Baldwin who's in his forties is helping his friend eight move out of the room. He's rented for the past seven years in a group home. I wanna get dissed of Justice loose stuff right here stores. This store he paid seven hundred dollars a month. JJ has to leave because his landlord is rehabbing the building to rent to students who go to the nearby university of southern California. Probably more money, the landlord wouldn't say. Everything's getting looking Francis manage okay, you guys to Baldwin used to have the same landlord. But he and roughly eighty other tenants, including his two sons were evicted from six other buildings on the same block also being rehabbed for student rentals. So is hard. He's currently sleeping in his car. And his sons are staying with family while he tries to track down a new place to lit a tall. Order in LA's infamously, expensive rental market. If pushing me further from LA too and an empire acted justifies Baldwin and its fellow tenants couldn't appeal the revisions because their buildings aren't covered under Elliot rent stabilization ordinance. It caps renting creases to three percent a year and also limits evictions to lease violations. Only but those rules only apply to units built before nineteen Seventy-eight Baldwin's and other buildings were new. He's got a state law called cost. Hawkins prevents LA from expanding its control. It also limits. Other cities from applying rent control rules to condos single family homes and apartments built since nineteen ninety-five proposition. Ten would repeal cost Hawkins and let cities regulate their rental markets as they choose Baldwin's onboard. We got vote chant. It's one of the hottest issues in California this election cycle. A state were housing costs have spiraled up as has homelessness more than ninety million dollars has been spent to sway voters nearly three quarters of that by landlords tenants rights groups, say proper ten would tamp down rising rents and slow displacement for low income people but opponents like San Diego property management consultant, Robert Maguire, say it could make California's housing crisis even worse. The big thing is we've got to build our way out of this. State officials say housing costs are so high because California is stored about two million homes. Maguire says rent regulations would. Dissuade developers from building new units. If their return on investment could be limited rent control rules are rare in the US just fifteen California cities have them along with some jurisdictions in New Jersey, Maryland, New York, and then also DC in Massachusetts. They ended their rent control. That's Vanessa Carter, a USA researcher who co authored a recent report into the effects of rent regulations. Economic theory suggests that there would be units taking off the market folks would stop building that it would create a market distortion, but the research on the actual impacts of rent stabilization don't show that Carter's research found that rent control tens not to affect new construction the local rules, she studied exempted new buildings from rent. Limits. Carter did find that rent regulations helped people stay in their homes when we look at housing stability. It's quite clear that rent stabilization does create more stability, but that's been clips in much of the discussion surrounding proposition ten prompting Carter. Ask who has the power to change our policy framework that tends to be landlords in the US. A recent poll by USC and the Los Angeles Times found the vote on proposition ten is likely to be very close in Los Angeles. Imagine Oko for marketplace. This

We expected finally a receptionist, here's we introduce ourselves. We asked to see the inaugural committees nonprofit tax return, which we already have a copy of the firm is supposed to show you the original. If you show up an ask, this could be our ticket to hang out and learn something. The partner who keeps that document is an in, but I did have another question is, is there Donna Smith here? The receptionist knows the name and she picks up the phone. She asks us to take a seat a few minutes later. A man appears wearing khakis and a casual shirt. He introduces himself as Michael Bay's partner at the firm. We asked to talk to Donna Smith bay says, no, we ask about H group bay says, we do not comment on client matters a long journey for short conversation. That went about as I would have planned. We learned there probably is Donna Smith on staff and she's not talking. We learned Holtzman Vogel's reception area is home as a dentist's office. We did not learn who gave the million dollars to the inauguration or what they might have wanted from the new president in return. This is a a firm that makes millions of dollars a year providing services to wealthy often anonymous clients. One of those services is protecting the entity of those clients. And that's essentially what we saw today. We left messages later for Donna Smith, no response. The inaugural committee declined our request for an interview. We did manage to speak with someone who, as they insisted has knowledge of the inaugural committee. The told us employees of the committee and donors were quote vetted. They didn't explain what they were vetted for or by whom this person said Doug Amerman. The treasurer has a sterling reputation and noted that Elliott Brody the finance vice chair is the national deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee. In the meantime, the White House cut ties with Stephanie Winston, woke off afterward got out that her firm was the inaugurations biggest contractor. Our source with knowledge asked us to keep an open mind about spending one reason this event cost so much. They said, other new president's got a lot of stuff donated Trump's inaugural paid market rate for everything source said, and even though they didn't have big names, they did pay the entertainers Yonsei sang for Obama for free. You know something about the group.

Forest Jin pogo rocks, brand new story did tickets at step judgment that are never got applause for it before if you guys could call my mom, that'd be awesome. She's still passed. Night on the first of the twenty sixteen let's go back twenty fifteen. Donald Trump was one candidate in a crowded field for publicans. And you said recently quote, when you give they do whatever the hell you want them to do you better believe it was in one of the primary debates, the moderator Bret Baier asked candidate Trump why he'd given money to Democrats as well as Republicans Trump shrugged it. I will tell you that our system is broken. I gave too many people before this before two months businessman. And then he bragged about his political giving according to groups that track political spending over the years Trump has given close to two million dollars to all kinds of candidates at the state and federal level. I give to everybody when they call I give and you know what? When I need something from them two years later, three years later I call them, they are there for me that a broken system. What'd you get from Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi? Well, I'll tell you. What with Hillary Clinton, I said, be at my wedding and she came to my wedding. You know why she had no choice because I gave. I think Trump has been pretty clear that he views politics as transactional business. This is Sheila krumholz executive director of the center for responsive politics. It's a nonpartisan group that tracks political spending at the federal level through their website, open secrets. That's how he played politics. All these many years is he made a donation and he expected something in return. And this administration has opened those sort of doors. And this is Robert Maguire open secrets investigator. He says, because Trump owns hotels and golf courses are person with money to spend can get noticed again and again, so they, they raise this massive amount of money, but then also afterwards, you can hold your next trade association event at Trump's hotel. You know, you can put money directly into the pocket of the president and his family open secrets, ran an analysis of donations to Trump's big party as they do with every inauguration. So we pull up one of the charts on a laptop. We are now looking at the industries that gave the most. It's the securities and investment coughed up fourteen point seven million dollars, which is not surprising. Banks always give, but look more closely. And this colossal sum of money is not so typical that comes from fifty eight donations which is in striking contrast to the two hundred and fifty seven donations that made up the four point five million that they delivered to a bomb in two thousand nine so far fewer donors far, more money, far, fewer donors, giving a lot more money. The other top donor industries to Trump real estate sports team owners casinos oil and gas and mining. Sheila krumholz says, you have to consider the spirit in which companies make contributions. They're not Al tristen beings. They have a fiduciary duty to return a profit to their shareholders. So how is this money that they are investing in this event going to allow them a return to show that return the forty seven one million dollars. Nations and one five million dollars nation from casino magnate Sheldon Adelson of course, the bigger the gift heart is to ignore. Here's some of Trump's inaugural donations lineup with things. The White House did later. I mean, just weeks after being inaugurated President Trump went to the EPA with his new EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt brought coal miners up onto the stage and had Bob Murray. The head of one of the largest coal companies in the country sitting front and center for Trump to announce his administration's intend to do away with the clean Power plan, Murray energy, a coal company, which would benefit from a rollback of that plan contributed three hundred grand to the inaugural committee. That is an incredible return on investment from someone gob Murray Marie energy says, there's no connection. The previous month Trump signed an order, allowing oil and gas companies to conceal payments to foreign governments. Those industries gave Trump combined ten million dollars. This is H J resolution forty-one. Disapproving the securities and exchange Commission's role on disclosure payments, resource extraction, issues to deal in June chemical companies got a break and the EPA backed off a plan to regulate a pesticide. The chemicals can interfere with brain development in children. DOW Chemical gave five hundred thousand dollars within a short time. The administration was talking about doing away with certain pesticide regulations that were very important to Dow. Dow says it follows the law and meets high ethical standards, private prison companies and big banks got things from their wishlists too. So did Sheldon Adelson Trump's five million dollar donor. Israel is the cause dear to his heart and December Trump said, he'll move the US embassy to Jerusalem, it'll offer to pay for the new building. His proposal is now under review by the. State department. Of course, just because someone gave doesn't mean that's the reason for a policy change. And many of these donors also gave to Trump's campaign still open secrets. Robert Maguire says, it's really important that the public have the opportunity to look at each of the one thousand five hundred eighteen contributors what they gave and what they might have wanted and return from the administration. This is why he's become obsessed with one dark money donor. The B H group LLC they appear to have no website and no permanent office. Who are they? What do we know? We know that group was formed only weeks before the inaugural committee was formed. We know that gave a million dollars to the inauguration. So not at all an insubstantial about of money McGuire, who has a bushy red beard. A weakness for cat gifts says, be H group is one of two dark money organizations that gave a million dollars each to the inauguration. It's the first time he's ever. Seen this happen. Now. Dark money is just a term for political funds that are designed to be hard to trace the public doesn't know where this money came from. But the people involved, the president almost certainly knows where that money came from. And again, you're syncing theme. This is a president that appreciates when people show him respect and loyalty McGuire knows a little bit about one of the dark money organizations, and he made it his mission to learn everything he can about the other one to be H group. He founded state of Virginia articles of incorporation listing a single name as the organizer, Donna Smith. This was exciting to McGuire because it just happens. There's a Donna Smith working at a Virginia law firm which is known as the go to place for conservative dark money groups, Holtzman Vogel. And then last month when President Trump's inaugural committee filed its tax return, they listed their address as care of Holtzman Vogel. What? Right? So the the same. Law firm that appears to a formed the beach group, the shell company that gave a million dollars to the inaugural committee is the same law firm in charge of compliance for the inaugural committee at self. So Robert McGuire, and I took a trip in search of Donna Smith and the beach group Holzmann Vogel's main office is over an hour outside of DC past the headquarters of the National Rifle Association beyond the bull. Run battlefield forty, five north hill road Warrenton, Virginia, rob McGuire, memorize this address a long time ago. Holtzman Vogel is the attorney for lots of groups. He tracks are probably came across at the first time six years ago. And for years after, you know, anytime we find some major dark money group, it's on the right. It almost always has some link to forty five north hill road. Turn. Light will let us turn. We will be there in moments and I will finally know what this building looks like. This is the place. We pull in backside. I right in front of the tinted glass doorway to make sure they get my license number two storey, red brick buildings, like kind of an office park kind of thing with title company across the way and a retinal center outback. We give thanks inside the Holtzman Vogel office. There's no one around.
