What Is President Trump's Vision for a Second Term?
"Aggressive will you be in your second term to root out those who don't believe the american people get to choose that president so we had some people in my first time. They've been there a long time but they are deep. Say there's no question about it. look. I had great people. I had a lot of great people. We rebuilt the military. we rebuilt. can you imagine a lot of the things that i bought for. Military have been handed over eighty. Three billion dollars have been handed over to the taliban. It's not even believable that this could happen by biden but we rebuilt the military. We did so many things we were so good on. Healthcare people don't realize it we were so good on every aspect including the fact that we cut taxes more than any other administration in history. We cut regulations. That's why our jobs were so good. We had more jobs than we are. The greatest economy in history probably the greatest economy and the history of the world. We had one hundred sixty million jobs. We've never even come close to that over the years and certainly not even now but i rebuilt the economy twice. I rebuilt it before covert. I built it before covet and then rebuilt it after covet but you see covets coming back now. If i were president and cova came back they'd be front page stories. They don't even mention it with by but cope. It's coming back. I mean you look at the numbers. The numbers are in some cases worse than they were before. And nobody blames biden. But if you look at afghanistan you look at cova coming back. You look at a many other things including high taxes high gasoline prices. The economy is going to be ruined. Because it's all phony. It's all fake. They're just pouring money into pouring money into the economy you look at what's going on We got we're going to have an interesting period of time for the next three or four years that i can tell you
The Outspoken Oppa
How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

"Lauren in our episode last week you told us about facebook how the company has built its headquarters on the waterfront and at sea levels rise it and the cities around it will need to build defences to keep the water back and the big question in that story was was a fair amount for facebook to pay for those defenses. And today we're talking about whether buildings should happen at all in areas vulnerable to climate change. And it's a story that involves another tech giant google. Yes and for google. The situation is a little different. And i should say google is among npr's financial supporters. Yep disclosure Yeah they recently bought a lot of property in sunnyvale with plans to build a major expansion on it. it's actually more than seventy properties close to the shoreline worth almost three billion dollars. Whoa okay that's a lot and what's there now. Yeah this neighborhood. It's known as moffett park. It's really an office park right now. There's lots of these low rise office buildings with lots of big parking. Lots what google wants to build is different. It'll be offices of course but also housing which isn't in moffett park right now and it's it's not for employees necessarily. It'll be on the market for anyone. They're also envisioning green spaces and bike paths basically walkable neighborhoods. That's the direction. A lot of cities are going in. Right yeah. I mean getting people out of their cars and moving away from the suburban model. Yeah and changing. Our land use is a key strategy for dealing with climate change and cutting carbon emissions but climate change is also a problem for this neighborhood because sea levels are rising and rising increasingly. Fast right okay. So how soon will that encroaching water be a problem fairly quickly. I mean there's already been about eight inches of sea level rise over the last century. By mid century san francisco bay could see about a foot to two feet and by the end of the century. It could be as much as seven feet.

Somebody else has to pay it. And that's the tax payer so what he really did instead of eliminating student. Loan debt is that he reassigned it. It's important to understand this. You cannot give something to someone without taking it from someone else and even if what you're giving is a a note that says you don't have to pay me back. That means that money still has to be paid back but not by the person who borrowed it and benefited from it but instead by people who didn't borrow it and didn't benefit from it and that will include individuals who worked while going to school so that they didn't have to take on student loan debt those individuals when they worked paid taxes that will now be reassigned to people who took loans. We are constantly in this country using our government as way of redistributing wealth from people who make good decisions to people who make bad decisions from people who don't take debt to people who do from people who don't commit crimes to people who do and over a period of time what you do. Is you erode. This sort of calvinist work ethic that has made this country. Great the sense that you are responsible for your own actions for your own debts for your own crimes for your own decisions and choices. What the left has brought into mainstream. America is the idea that everybody's victim when they make bad decisions and the rest of us are required to bail them out because they didn't mean to make bad decisions. They had no choice but to make a bad decision. There was no alternative but to make a bad decision or if nothing else. They're the descendants of slaves even if they're not they're not white they're poor. Their parents weren't good to them. But what you're doing in. This case is rewarding the behaviors. You want to discourage and discouraging the the behaviors you should be rewarding and over a period of time you manage to change the culture because those who hustle and gripped get ahead and those who Who save and engage in thrift. Fall behind. it's the constant redistribution of wealth from one group to another all on the basis. That the person who is rewarded will reward you with this vote. So they're using the government to do that which they couldn't do themselves in.

"The better question would be. Why did the legislatures sorry legislators why did the legislature tours designed the system this way. Why did they design a system of taxation on profits and a system of taxation wages. Well later in the article. They the authors talk about this. It's kind of an interesting argument. But whenever a legislator sits down plays with the tax code they're trying to incentivize and things and disincentivize other things now one of my favorite tax planning my favorite quotes aphorisms about tax planning this when congress passes tax law or tax benefit they call it an incentive and then when you use that tax benefit they call it a loophole. So remember that. Today's incentives are going to be tomorrow's loopholes. This is one of the sobering realities which again we'll talk about the end of the show. Today's incentives to you are going to be tomorrow's loopholes. Whatever you do today that's considered to be an incentive because congress is trying to incentivize you to do something tomorrow. There's going to be an article published about how you're taking advantage of tax loophole. She wants to be very careful about this next. America's billionaires avail themselves of tax avoidance strategies beyond the reach of ordinary people. Their wealth derived from the skyrocketing value of their assets like stock and property. Those games are not defined by. Us laws taxable income unless and until the billionaires cell. Here's the question do. America's billionaires avail themselves of tax avoidance strategies beyond the reach of ordinary people. Think honestly you say of course to some degree. But on the whole i would rate that statement is completely false because there is no extra special tax code for billionaires and a different tax code for you and me there's one tax code there's one tax code and all of us live under the exact same tax code. Anyone can start a business or invest in capital assets. When i've taught you in the past about tax planning tax codes there's one for personal taxes and there's one for business taxes. Make sure that you're using the one on the business tax side because congress wants you to start a business. Because businesses create economic growth economic growth creates wages that congress can tax. Because you go and start a business. Anyone can start a business. Anyone can invest in capital assets. You don't have to be a billionaire to do that. In addition anyone can borrow money on their assets without without tax. People have done this all over the place. One of the most common questions a financial advisor gets well a second mortgage on my house or or refinance. My house so that. I can pay off my credit card debt. Do all the time doing exactly what billionaires do you have an asset you refinance the asset you take the money and use that loan money and spend it so it's absolutely false. And here's what's what. I found so interesting okay. And here's where i wish. I am not doing a video the moment on this. But some cases. I wish i were the ultra wealthy. By the numbers they go and they give a calculation and they're showing that according to their true tax rate meaning the increase in wealth that an individual has so. Let's go through the numbers. warren buffett. The graphic here says he had twenty four point. Three billion dollars of wealth growth between two thousand fourteen in two thousand eighteen. He reported a total income of one hundred and twenty five million dollars and he paid a total of twenty three point. Seven million dollars attacks by the way. Do you think. Warren buffett got twenty three point seven million dollars in tax in benefit worth in benefits for his tax payment. Maybe maybe so. They calculate the true tax rate. Twenty three point seven million dollars versus wealth growth at twenty four point three billion dollars. They calculated zero point one percent. But what's interesting is that warren buffett's actual tax rate total taxes. Paid twenty three point seven million dollars. Total income reported one hundred million is eighteen point nine percent more or less. What any tax planner would have backed right. Twenty percent evidence warns not gonna make much salary. He's gonna pay eighteen point nine percent. Isn't that interesting. Jeff bezos nine billion dollars of wealth growth four point. Two two billion dollars of income reported four point. Two two billion dollars of income re reported nine hundred seventy three million dollars of taxes paid from two thousand fourteen two thousand eighteen true tax rate. They would say zero point nine eight percent. My calculator tells me it's twenty three point one percent of about what you'd expect right that quarter number now this one. I don't understand michael. Bloomberg evidently had twenty two point five billion dollars of wealth from two thousand fourteen to two thousand eighteen ten billion dollars a total income reported but two hundred ninety two million dollars of taxes paid which they calculates tax rate is one point three percent. I- calculus two point nine percent. But i would be fascinated to see how we lost so much money. What on earth happened. During that third year we can see on the graph that he had a major decrease in taxes. Paid but what happened. He had some major losses somewhere. I would love to know what he invested in then elon. Musk over that period of time. Thirteen point nine. Billion dollars of wealth. Growth total income reported one point five two billion dollars four hundred and fifty five million dollars taxes. They say three point two seven percent. I say twenty nine point nine percent so this should show you the same thing. Let off the article with that. These guys are actually paying a lot more than a lot of people think in terms of taxes. There's this common idea out there that rich people don't pay any money on. Don't pay any tax right and the trump story didn't help right. Oh trump as zero dollars tax but here you see that three out of four of these guys are paying for these four years. Eighteen point nine percent twenty three point one percent twenty nine point nine percent of their income in federal income taxes. The only exception was michael bloomberg. Who had some crazy lost somewhere kind of like trump did and does just happens to be for these four years so be careful with the numbers. Be careful with the analysis. Now if we were going to argue this straightforwardly.

And so the idea of creating a team of professionals of skilled and trained people who are able to intervene deescalate those types of situations and not only that but also then connect those people to services in programs will both save lives because who wants to send an armed person to intervene in a in a in a case with someone who's having a mental health breakdown but it will also connect those people to to something more right so we wanna just.

I mean vision. Was cognizant enough and aware enough that he was considered presumably considered a living being he. It could have an interesting discussion about whether there. yes yes. We've all seen that next episode. That he had a living will probably tony stark up with that in his stark lawyers. Were there like my synthesis. Aide who is based on jarvis's code wants a living well and they're probably yes sir mr starr you pay the bills you write the checks we will do. What every question.

He did not want to be inspected he he just you know if he died according to be treated just like anybody else and beer and Obviously a little price to this laconda even let them take visions body. They thought him was swept in You know 'cause.

Yeah like everybody else. so yeah so wanted to not take visions body She ends She does break through the glass because she wants to closer to him into to see if she can. You'll him know kind of replicating that moment. We saw in infinity war. Where he's like. What do you feel like. I just feel you know. Yeah and she says. I can't feel him anymore. She leaves yeah she leaves and drives off to new jersey because vision had left her a deed to a piece of property where they were going to build a house in live together happily ever after. So that's that's why she was there but then when she gets there and sees that there's nothing because they never got a chance to build a house that's when she's just so you know everything that's happened up to that point is just finally spills out yeah. That's the straw that breaks the camel's back is standing there with this this deed with visions all heart written on it to grow old in Yeah love v on it and she just that's it that's just she's done and the damn breaks and everything oliver grief just pours out of her and it literally pours out of her in the manifestation of her magic creating this what becomes the hacks.

That i run a lot of youtube creators and a lot of Twitch content creators a lot of them don't realize that if you incorporate and you you know 'cause you're going to get a ten ninety nine from some of these if if you get a certain amount every year right In if you incorporate a lot of the things you use for your business like you know your internet service in your webcam in space that you read from your house you can use those as legal tax deductions but a lot of people.
