Speaker 1:

Hello, my friends. And welcome back to yet. Another episode of watching the Watchers live. My name is Robert Mueller . I am a criminal defense attorney here at the RNR law group in the always beautiful and sunny Scottsdale Arizona, where my team and I over the course of many years have represented thousands of good people facing criminal charges. And throughout our time in practice, we have seen a lot of problems with our justice system. I'm talking about misconduct involving the police. We have prosecutors behaving poorly. We have judges not particularly interested in a little thing called justice, and it all starts with the politicians, the people at the top, the ones to write the rules and pass the laws that they expect you and me to follow. But sometimes have a little bit of difficulty doing so themselves selves . That's why we started this show called watching the Watchers so that together with your hands , we can shine that big, beautiful spotlight of accountability and trust transparency back down upon our system with a hope of finding justice. And we're grateful that you are here and with us today, we've got a lot to get into. We're going to be talking about president Joe Biden and vice president Kamala Harris. They are zipped Zeppelin dude all day all over the world. Now they're traveling around Kamala Harris is down South of the border in Mexico today, yesterday, she was in Guatemala. I'm going to follow up on that. But today Joe Biden, it sounds like he's making his way over to Europe and back home, domestically speaking, some people in the democratic party are not so happy about this. Kind of feel like some of the byte administration agenda has hit a stand still . We've got some news on what's going on there. We've got sort of a , a halt with , uh , some, some conversations that are taking place with senators. Senator Joe Manchin now came out and said something like, he's not going to be really supportive of any policy changes that might invoke that sort of require the overcoming of the filibuster, which kind of means that maybe Biden's agenda really does in fact come to a halt. So we're going to talk about some of those trips, some interesting things are going on there. Then we're going to talk about surprisingly, another foreign affairs case Kim Jong una . The North Korean dictator is a working on his dad bod for the summer. So we're going to talk about that story as well. Then we're going to talk about what's happening with taxes in America. If you know , uh, if you've been following this channel for some time, you know, I kind of have a little bit of a sore spot when it comes to taxes. Well, we have a new story out from pro Publica that says that a lot of the billionaires don't like paying taxes either apparently so much so that they pay essentially 0% zero, which means we're going to be talking about Mark Zuckerberg, Elan Musk, Jeff Bezos, Warren buffet . You know, all of these people who are always is out there telling the rest of us that we should be very happy and patriotic to pay taxes. And that it's sort of for the social good, that you're sort of a , an evil, greedy monster. If you are against raising taxes on the rich, they tell us, but lo and behold, they are the rich and they don't actually pay any taxes. So rules for the, but not for me. We're going to break down that story. Some interesting stuff are going on there. Then of course, the big news that is not being talked about in the mainstream media is the Hunter Biden text message story where apparently he was having conversations with his attorney and using the N word, Oh, this guy come on. All right. So we're going to talk about that now. You know , ordinarily, I don't like to sort of peer into people's text messages, especially when they're going back and forth between them and their lawyer, but I happened to be a lawyer. And so I've got some perspective I want to share here. And I also take issue with this because this is surrounding an issue that we have been on the receiving end of for a long time here. And I'm talking about Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and other people who are aligned with that political ideology scolding the rest of us, telling us what a bunch of racist, white supremacists we are when lo and behold, they're using type of language that , that resembles that. And I don't type talk that way. And I know you don't either. So we're going to talk a lot about that. We've got a lot to get into. If you want to be a part of the show, I would love to invite you to do that. I'm going to right now, watch go on over to watching the watchers.locals.com . And if you want to support the show, you can join our community over there. And there's a lot going on there. We've got a monthly meetup that is coming up in the, at the end of June, we have a law enforcement interaction training, which is happening this Saturday. I posted the registration link finally over there. So you can go and register for that should be fun. We've got a free copy of my book. It's available for you. You can download that copy of my existence systems program, but the real reason to go over there is so you can participate in the live chat that is happening right now. So you can ask a question, LABA comment, throw out a criticism, whatever your heart desires, send it over to Ms. Faith right now, she is going to be clipping those and adding those into the slides. And so we're going to be talking about all of your questions as well. A couple of quick reminders before we move on, there are some links in the description down below where you can check out some other things that I'm working on. I released a very, I think I thought it was a pretty, pretty good video last night , uh , about the dark side hackers group. So dark side ransomware, we know that they took out the pipeline on the East coast of the United States while the FBI seized $2.3 million of their cryptocurrency, their Bitcoin. And it's kind of interesting how they were able to track down, trace this money. They , they actually went and found the hackers and sees their Bitcoin. So I went through the affidavit and the warrant that was issued from the Northern court out of California, all on my second channel. And the link directly to that video is down below. Also got the existence system course up over at gum road and reduced the price on that. So if you want to check that out, I'm going to be moving some stuff over to Gumroad , which is a very cool learning platform. So the link to that description is down there below. We have Arizona law, our Arizona law channel at the RNR law group. We love to help good people facing criminal charges. And so if you happen to know anybody in our state that needs some help send them to our , our YouTube channel below, we've got a lot more information and new content coming out there as well. And so that is it by way of introduction. Thank you everybody for indulging me in that we are going to get into the news and it's going to start right now. President Biden and Kamala Harris are traveling around the world yesterday. We talked about condescending, Kamala Harris, going down to Guatemala and wagging her finger in the faces of the Guatemalans and saying, Hey, we have an immigration problem in our country. That's why I'm coming down here to you to talk to you about it because I'm expecting you Guatemala to solve our immigration problem for us. So that didn't go over too well. Kamala Harris was out there telling people from the stage don't come to America, don't come right. And we sort of recall her during the election season, having a very different tone, talking about America, being a place that welcomes all sorts of immigrants. We talked about a tweet that she posted in 2017 that also resembled that more welcoming tone. And then she goes down and suddenly says, don't come right? And so she's not very warmly received. So kind of a miss on that. And we're going to talk about the white house sort of is perplexed as what the heck happened there. Then she goes on Lester Holt show and says, Oh, we've already been to the border. And he says, no, you haven't. What are you talking about? You've never been down there. And she says, well, I haven't been to Europe either. What do you think about that? Lester? And he's also going, I'm feeling pretty perplexed here myself. So a lot of perfection coming on from Kamala Harris, but now she's in Mexico. So we're going to talk about that. Now she's actually going to a country that does border the United States. So that's a little bit of an improvement. We're going to see if she scolded them as well for them not solving America's problem. We'll see how they react to that. And you know, on this story, I was thinking about this yesterday. I mean, how condescending is it? How would you feel as an American? If some other politician came into our country, traveled here and took the stage at the United States, Congress or congressional building in the Senate or the house, I don't care. And they give a speech lecturing us about what , the problems that we are contributing to their nation. What the hell? What , what would we say? I would be throwing a fit on this channel, get the hell out of our country. Don't tell us how to do our business. Thanks for your opinion, but no, thanks. Get the hell out of here. And so, so for some reason , um , Americans or Kamala Harris, they think that it's okay to go into other people's countries and do that. Just say, Hey Guatemala, we got an immigration problem, but it's your fault. And we need you to fix it because we can't do anything about it at our own border. And meanwhile, many people forget that in one man's humble opinion. The reason that we have the border crisis in the first place is because of the dramatic policy changes that we saw as a result of this new administration coming in. This problem exacerbated suddenly right after January 20th, isn't that convenient because the policies changed . So condescending, Kamala Harris can go down to Guatemala and Mexico and wherever she wants in the world and wag her finger at those people. But what is the root cause of this is not global warming. It's not whatever's happening down there. It's the fact that the United States is creating perverse incentives, incentivizing people to come to the country. So if Kamala Harris really wants to get some ROI, some return on her investment of her time as a leader, maybe that's where she should focus rather than blaming other countries for it. Just a thought. Now Joe Biden is joining in on the freight. So he's picking up and he's going over to Europe heading over there. But many Democrats are sort of their heads saying, why are they flying around to different parts of the world? When the domestic agenda of the new Biden administration, the one that they promised during this last election seems to be screeching to a halt what's happening here? Well, the Hill gives us an update. They say Biden heads to Europe at a difficult moment for his domestic agenda. This was published today on June 9th, by Brett Samuels and Alex GaN , G Tano says Biden's headed to Europe on Wednesday, an inopportune time for his first foreign trip as president, as his domestic priorities hit rocks. And so what are we talking about? We've seen a lot of this happen this past week, but the president, so Biden himself cut off infrastructure negotiations on Tuesday with Shelley Moore Capito over from West Virginia, who was the G the top GOP negotiator in the Senate on the issue. So after the discussion on Friday, both sides left far apart on key issues . So, Oh , it sounds like infrastructure is kind of coming to a stall . Biden said he's going to instead move forward on discussions with a bipartisan group of senators who are separating leap separately, preparing another infrastructure proposal of around 880 billion, less than the top line figure that was discussed by Capito. All right . So then that was one Senator out of West Virginia didn't work so well with her. Then we have Joe mansion of the other Senator from West Virginia that is also not playing ball with the Democrats, Joe Manchin, another Democrat from West Virginia separately sent a torpedo into the democratic agenda. By making it clear. He has no intention of weakening the filibuster. Even if Republicans blocked democratic legislation, he announced his continued opposition for 2d, for the people act, these sweeping votes legislation that is a dumpster fire. So that's sounds like it's not going to be going through. And the last I read, Joe Manchin actually met with some other people. I think it was yesterday. All this happened pretty quickly. Joe Manchin came out and said, Nope, filibusters not going away. Which essentially means for those who are not familiar with some of the political terminology here, that the Democrats need more than the 51 votes that they have. So, as we recall, this last election was, was what it was. And the Democrats now have 50 seats in the Senate. Now they have Kamala Harris who is the vice-president. So she makes up the tie-breaking vote. 50 Republicans, 50 Democrats plus Kamala Harris. They have 50 plus one. They technically have the majority, but there still is a rule called a filibuster, which means that in order to end debate on a certain topic, as it's working its way through Congress, they got to get more than just the simple majority in order to end the debate. And the reason why this rule is in place and it's arguable, the Democrats hate it, of course, because they're in power and they want to cram a bunch of stuff through the Congress. But when they are not in power, suddenly, they're kind of okay with the filibuster. So this is something that everybody sort of wants a way when it is a speed bump or a roadblock to their agenda. But the point here is that the Democrats, as long as the filibuster rules exist currently, they don't have enough via simple majority to pass anything. And so they wanted Joe Manchin and , uh , Kiersten cinema from here in Arizona to just go in and say, listen, all right, look, you know, the filibusters pretty good for these other things, but we're going to break it. We're going to change the rules just for the, for the people act just to pass voting through because voting is so important and , uh , Joe Manchin to his credit and Kiersten cinema, I mean, these are two, you know , Democrats that are by some miracle, doing something that I think is the right move and they are not getting rid of the filibuster. And I think I would say this, even if the tables were turned right, we don't want pinball legislation happening where every time any party gets a simple majority in Congress, that they can pass whatever they want because there's no speed bumps stopping them from doing so. The filibuster is intended to sort of put the brakes on legislation coming through so that they'll let let's say next year, Republicans take control of the Senate. Are they going to pass a bunch of bills through, with a simple majority vote and undo everything the Democrats did? So we don't want that. We want to say, look, if we're going to be passing major bills, we want it to be somewhat bi-partisan . And so we set the rule and we set up the filibuster in place to slow things down. So Democrats currently, according to the Hill says they seem not to have a plan for how to handle mansion and Kiersten cinema or a clear strategy for moving forward. That's led for a new calls from the Senate, majority leader, Chuck Schumer and Biden, who will now have to manage and advise on these issues, especially as Biden meets with president Vladimir Putin coming up soon, next week, the high profile summit meeting. So that should be fun. We'll see how that goes. Uh , the optics are obviously not ideal, says Casey Bergen , a director of legislative affairs program at George Washington says that we'll probably hear the press secretary and administration be purposeful in talking about how he's still working, you know, working the phone lines from afar, but the optics of leaving DC while DC is mired in gridlock is obviously not ideal, right? So this is somebody who's a , it sounds like a director of legislative affairs from George Washington. We also see that the pressure on Biden to move forward on different phases comes as he is eager to make a strong impression with foreign leaders that American foreign policy is shifting from the Trump years. Well , Camilla didn't do such a good job of that know she went down there and I th you know , I , I'm not a Guatemala or a Mexican, but I would imagine as an American, if some politician came into my country and started wagging their finger at me, that I wouldn't. Are you particularly happy about that now while Biden has meetings set up over the next several days, he's going to be meeting with prime minister from Britain, Boris Johnson, Turkish, president Recep, Tayyip, Ardo Aragon. We've got Putin white house officials said the president's domestic agenda. Won't take it backseat . So we'll see, you know, by , by buying is a very vigorous man. Okay. He can juggle a lot of things at the same time. Very vibrant, lot of energy always has the words ready to go. You say, Hey, Joe, what's your take on that issue. Boom, facts . Ready to go? Next one. Next one . Next question. So he'll be able to juggle all of this while he's traveling to Europe. Now, article continues says that said Biden has made a point of holding in-person meetings, hoping that a personal touch can help break through the congressional gridlock. Longtime Senator is a familiar face to many Senate colleagues because he's been in a Senate for about 200 years. Now, being out of the country for a week could further setback hopes for progress with both chambers of Congress, only in town for a few weeks in June. They're not working. Biden has spent months, whether a bipartisan deal on infrastructure as possible, but the talks with the GOP are at a dead end. Democratic lawmakers have also become increasingly impatient during the white house negotiations, calling on Biden to move on, leave the Republicans behind. They say there's a risk. So I'm close to the white house. Argue that expanding more time. Talking with Republicans who may never get to yes, will cause the democratic coalition to fray the urgency to move forward via reconciliation has increased as the economic recovery. Hasn't surged , which some experts expected and the back-to-back disappointing jobs reports in April and may. Uh, Oh, they're starting to panic because we're getting into next year. We've got midterms coming up here soon. So now they're Oh, we better get some stuff moved because there's a close window that is closing rapidly. Okay. If there is a shift in public sentiment in favor of the Republicans, the Democrats have a razor margin, thin razor razor, thin margin in both the Senate and the house. Remember in 2020, even though Donald Trump lost the election, the Republicans, if I'm not mistaken, actually picked up seats in the house, which was one of the first reasons why many people were scratching their heads about the presidential top of the ticket outcome. But that's a separate topic here. If there is any movement of independence towards the Republicans, it's very likely that the Republicans will take back control of the Senate, take back control of the house. And so then what happens now, you have a lame duck presidency because Joe Biden will not get anything through. So they need to get this stuff passed immediately. Otherwise they may lose the opportunity to do that. And then you have a president that has a neutered administration for the following two years. And so Republicans now sort of have a, a lame duck that they run a strong candidate against, and maybe they take control of the presidency as well. So the power that the changing of the tide here can happen very, very quickly. And so what they're recommending here, you see this word reconciliation, right? This is a budgetary procedure that they can use in Congress, which is sort of it's reconciling both provisions. The both separate bills is sort of mashing them together, using a budgetary maneuver. They did this back with Obamacare. If you don't recall, they said this was a spending bill. The house passed the bill, the Senate passed a bill. Then if I , if I'm not mistaken, they were different. And the , the , the actual Senate changed its constituency because I think Scott Brown won, but they had already passed the bill. So it didn't pass a filibuster proof majority. So they just pass it as a , as a spending measure. They did reconciliation, boom, Obamacare became law. So they're trying to do that again with some of these other bills. Problem is the parliamentarian in the Senate has said specifically that you can only do that. I think for budgetary bills, not for something like for the people act. So in other words, then they would need mansion or Kiersten cinema to go in and actually modify the rules. Both of them have indicated they're not willing to do that. So we'll wrap up this article. It says the top agenda items that would require 60 votes in the Senate to pass are things like the election reform, bill America's families plan and policing reform. They're hitting a major roadblock with moderate Democrats up in opposition to altering the filibuster, right? So Democrats are sort of not working with themselves apparently. And so they're not happy about that. Some Democrats and strategist close to the white house believe a sense of uncertainty that has emerged around Biden's agenda. In recent days, maybe overstated. They pointed to transportation bills and other stuff they think, Oh, he's doing a great job. So we'll see about that. Now, something interesting happened when Biden was on his way up , you know, there's , uh , sometimes you just kind of get a bad feeling about things like something is just not right around you. Well, if you are a biblical person, you may have heard of, you know , a biblical plague, you may have heard of locus sort of washing over Egypt. And these, this idea of the end of the world on the back of a lot of the biblical breakdowns, the plagues rummaging through our lives. Well, we're not talking about locus . We're talking about cicadas and Biden's press plane was invaded by them before he took off. Right? So this is what they look like. And it's a Cadas are all over the place here. We have them in Arizona. We have them , uh , you know , uh , elsewhere around the country. But so does Joe Biden. MSNBC says that the brood , cicadas, that Rose from the earth seventh after 17 years underground, they've proved their determination. On Tuesday night, the bugs claimed another surprising accomplishments. They grounded the white house press Corps, as it headed for the president Biden's overseas trip, the white house press charter was delayed due to mechanical issues caused by cicadas. And they said what they said, yes, cicadas. So it's the press. It's the press airplane. That is just being overwhelmed in biblical fashion by cicadas sounds about right. The white house press Corps was in route to the president's strips in Europe, going to meet with European union NATO, LATAM , ear Putin, press charter flight. It was delayed by the Cicada issues until 2:40 AM. Naturally the cicadas had significantly delayed a flight full of journalists. The news spread quickly. No, John Lameer isn't getting the white house press charter for the foreign trip is delayed several hours because of Cicada related mechanical issues. Not good week for the Biden administration plane said in New York times, Michael shear on Twitter, first mechanical issues with the VP plane. Now the press charter Poda strip is delayed because the engines were invaded by cicadas. I'm going to remember this never-ending flight 17 years from now, cicadas tweeted another CNN correspondent . So look, folks, I don't know what to take. I don't know what to make of the cicadas, but here's Joe Joe Biden got attacked by one himself. Here it is. Oh , there , dang it. Uh , I don't know what this means for America. I mean, I, you know, gut reaction is not good. So we'll see how this foreign trip goes over to Europe where he's meeting with Putin. So that should be fun. All right . Now I mentioned earlier at the outset of this segment that the white house was a little bit confused. You know, Kamala Harris, many people recognize what an excellent politician she is . I mean, she got like six, seven votes, I think, during the democratic primaries. And so I think she had to , maybe I don't , she actually may have dropped out before they even voted one time. So we know that maybe her retail POL political skills lead a little bit to be desired, but could anybody have imagined it would be this bad? Well, even the white house is confused. According to media, the white house is quote perplexed by Kamala Harris has performance on her first foreign policy trip. According to CNN, they say now perplex is one of those words that sometimes you can read a story like this and go, well, you know, is that, is this accurate? Do they really feel confused about this, but perplexed love it. So that's how you know, this is accurate. Unnamed white house insiders were left, quote perplexed by the performance of Kamala on her recent trip. The report comes from CNN, Jeremy diamond joined the vice-president on her trip and shared his insights with new day, Wednesday morning, early in this administration, Joe Biden assigned Harris, the unenviable task of ostensibly overseeing the border issue. We've talked a lot about this. She said, well, she's not really going to focus on the border because that is a problem. So she's going to focus on Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, which of course are not border countries . So she's going to fly over the border and go into these countries to try to address it. Now, Harris has been a lightning rod for criticism because they have been focused on the fact that she is unwilling to visit the border. Since she took office. Now I did learn today that she has agreed to go down there. I think that she is communicating to somebody who's a part of the press pool following her around. She said something like, yes, I'll go. All right, stop asking me about it. Good. I'll go down there, leave me alone. So that's going to happen. One could argue that the refusal to participate was a grand gesture at that it's unnecessary political theater, but her critics have said, well, she should still go down there and play the part. Right? VP Harris takes criticism from all sides and her first foreign trip diamond introduced a segment that won't be received well when the vice-president stops, the vice-president saw the strip as an opportunity to burnish her foreign policy credentials. After entering office with very little foreign policy experience said diamond. She hoped to make real progress on the root causes of migration. He then noted some successes on the trip. Yeah , there's been some progress. That's left some of the team administration officials though perplexed and the vice president's team frustrated said that there was progress, but there are now concerns. The progress may have been overshadowed by her answers to some of the questions that the team knew she would be facing. He explained in an interview where she had this conversation with Lester hope, AOC came out and said that she was not happy receiving criticism from all sides. So it didn't go so well in Guatemala. But now comma was back in Mexico and we'll see what the reaction to that is. Later on tomorrow, we got a quick little preview. This is a mix of diplomacy and controversy, according to Yahoo news. So she now is going over to Mexico and we've got some pictures from this year. It says that she's gotten more attention back home, over her controversies, over her words on immigration. She angered some on the left by telling immigrants not to come, do not come. She said, then she created the dust up by saying that she did go to the border. We talked about all that yesterday. Kamala Harris was sitting across from the Mexican president today at a long polished wood table. The noted that there was interconnection and interdependence of the two nations, she was asked when she got home. So do I declare this trip a success? She said, yes, I do. It's a success in terms of creating a pathway that is about progress. Uh , I can't stand when they speak like that. It is a success in terms of creating a pathway that is about progress. Nothing said nothing. That means nothing asked whether she would commit to visit the , the border. She says, yes, I will. And I have before. And our two stops. She pledged millions of dollars in U S loans and investment for housing, 130 million in improving working conditions, safety issues, child labor. Again, I don't know what that does to stop the , the flow of people over the border, but okay. It, her two day trip to Guatemala and Mexico was aimed at curbing, the influx of central American migrants, Guatemala. She met with the president, her news conference emphasized the issue of root causes is not going to be fixed in one trip that took two days. No, you're right. It won't do you know why? Cause it's meaningless. It doesn't do anything. You didn't do much there. You know, what would fix this pretty quickly, maybe not two days, but much sooner than your timeline. Changing the policies here in the United States. Not in Guatemala, not in Mexico in the United States because it's those policies that are creating incentives for people to pick up and drag their children across the desert and subject them to all sorts of abuse and harm along the way, your policies, comma, layers , not everybody else that you blame. You call them racist and all that. That's all well and good. I mean, you're, you're free to do that. It's an accurate, but the point here is what you're doing is causing the humanitarian crisis. Not other people, the questions that dog , the vice-president as well as others says that she has not visited the border and all of that Mexico city, the primary focus was again on immigration, but she sought to more broadly defined the diplomatic relationship . She says, we made clear the United States considers Mexico to be a partner on many of these issues. That's good. Characterizing her talks as candid and covering migration before their one-on-one session. Lopez Obrador said mucho Gusto. She responded in Spanish. It's very good to see you . They were greeted by salutes from everybody. The president of Mexico showed Harris a mural. So that's good. We've got another special Envoy to Mexico said we are both destination countries for migration they're meeting with separate labor leaders. So it look again, not , not much interesting here is happening. This was interesting though. Kamala Harris is still wearing a mask. So I saw this, you know, I know it's a mask . Look, I know it's petty. I'm trying to squeeze something out of this trip. I want to talk about something meaningful. There's nothing meaningful that happened. We're sending a bunch of money over there. She's telling them that we have an immigration problem first foreign trip. So I was scolding them not to come. Okay. So she's still wearing a mask though. So I don't know if she's vaccinated or what the, what the deals are she's in Mexico. So I guess the CDC rules don't apply. Maybe the Mexican rules apply, but of course the Mexican president is not wearing a mask. So Kamala Harris is still doing the, you know, still grand standing or whatever the heck she's doing. Uh, here's another image. So now she's speaking out here, everybody's massed up again. Right? Same, same story. So, okay. I guess that's the thing. Now let's get to some real news now. I, you know, all right , let's get to some real news. Let's talk about something that actually matters because the foreign policy of this current administration thus far has been pretty much garbage. We'll see if Joe Biden's able to turn the ship around when he meets with Putin next, next week, but I don't have my hopes up for that one. I mean, Putin, you know, ex KGB sort of force , you know , he's out there like fly fishing and wrestling tigers. Joe Biden is having a tough time reading from a teleprompter on a regular basis without losing his breath and falling over. So we'll see how that goes. I'm not particularly hopeful about it, but in some actual interesting international news, we're talking about North Korea now, North Korea, they've got some serious things happening there. First and foremost, Kim Jong UHIN is working on his summer body. Dad bod John Boone is back in business. He looks thinner. It looks pretty fabulous. Two intelligence agencies. They're paying attention. This article came over from NK news, which has a whole website dedicated to what's going on in North Korea. And I came across the story and I just had to share it with you. Cause it's fun here. It's written by Colin. [inaudible] posted yesterday, June 8th, North Korea and Kim Jong-un reappeared in state media. Last Saturday, he has not been seen in public for almost a month. North Korean Watchers were quick to point out that he looked like he may have lost a significant amount of weight for him, whatever he's doing, looking good . Let's take a look though. Often the subject of less serious online commentary Kim's weight and health are closely watched by foreign intelligence agencies, including South Korea's national intelligence service, that if Kim lost the weight intentionally to get healthier, well, then that likely improves his position at home. Being more secure at home and in turn provides more predictability for regional actors like Japan, the Republic of Korea and the U S we have greater confidence. He's going to be running the show, right? So it, you know, this is something I kind of joke about, but it is, it is very interesting how intense they focus on this. And so let's take a look at what I'm talking about. These are images that came over from whatever one of the intelligence agencies is, and this is Kim Jong-un's risks , right? And this is his watch. And they say that his watch is very expensive. I think it's like $10,000 or something. And so, you know, he wears the same watch regularly. Now we have early images from last year, December, 2000 , I'm sorry, November of 2020. Oh, this doesn't look like there's that much space here. So, you know, he's kind of on he's on that, that this watch is different, but he's kind of on that last little hole they're running out of space pretty quickly. And then suddenly you'll notice that this yellow little square down here, it looks like it might be squeezing up a little bit, getting a little bit, a little bit, maybe a little bit heavier, a little bit lighter. It looks a little bit lighter. So it's kind of going the other, the , this direction, right? And we see this was on March 5th and then suddenly look at all this extra strap. We got extra strap folks. Now we fast forward to June 5th, 2021. Kim Jong moon is looking pretty good. Now, do we have a picture of him? Let's let's make sure let's see if we've got a picture of this fellow. I don't know that we actually got a full picture. So let's w w w we'll we'll take a look at that. Let me show you the rest of this article. See if Ms . Faith can grab a picture of him quickly from , from where he's at. See if she can squeeze that in with the comments. Now, meanwhile, North Korea, they've been making structural changes and altering propaganda strategies since last year to emphasize the role of the party central committee, slightly minimizing the centrality of Kim Jong UHIN . So I skipped the P a paragraph here. So I wanted to show you this, right? We've got sort of two hypotheses. If this was something he intended to lose weight about over it's great news, right? He's going to be around for a while . That's a good thing. But if the sudden weight loss is due to a health condition, might be in for some problems, looks like there may be a jockeying for his succession, which may be already happening behind the scenes. That volatility could be trouble for the outside world. The forensics agency is the North Korea news forensics analysis. They looked at state media imagery. They suggest that Kim does appear like he is thinner. The luxury watch. He frequently wears seem to be fastened more highly than before an apparently slimmer wrist, right? So that's that image right there. And it, it's kind of a funny it's , it's a , it's a funny image. For instance, a group of officials under Kim called the pullet Bureau presidium was given a more prominent role. In 2020 party rules were amended in January, 2021. They officially established a clear number two position under Kim slogans and symbols representing Kim. We're also erased from the display in months, replaced with slogans, glorifying the party . Instead, regardless of these changes, whatever Kim's weight is, he appears firmly in control. He showed up on June 8th with the state media reporting reporting. He guided a political meeting and provided his personnel solutions to the nation's economic Trop troubles. He's also remained the central focus of propaganda in state print media. Last week, Kim is set to appear and a party plenary meeting that could last for several days. So, all right, so Kim Jong-un is looking fabulous, man . My slides don't look like they are sinking, unfortunately. So let me see what is going on over here. And , uh , I'll have Ms . Faith send me a different link to the slides. For some reason, they are not syncing up today. So we're going to get back to those questions and we're going to jump into the next segment for the time being taxes. If you've spent some time on this channel, I've talked a lot about taxes. They drive me bananas. The reason why is because in my opinion, when you are living your life and you are creating value in the world, what you're doing is sort of transmuting your life into that product. It's called the labor theory of value. And it's the idea that we mix our labor with our work and we create value. And when the government just takes a piece of that right off the top, I've got a big problem with that, because in my opinion, they are sort of taking your life away from you. You are turning your life, mixing it with your labor, creating a product. And the government just says, well, we're going to take 30% of that. And you say for what? And they tell you a bunch of stuff that they tell you you're getting. But in reality, I doubt it. I think that we could get those things without them taking so much away from us. And so I've got a big problem with this. I can spend hours talking about it. I regularly rant about all of the different taxes that we pay on a regular basis. In addition to income tax, everything you do, every purchase has sales tax. Every time you take a trip, there's all sorts of national security tax, airplane, tax, tax taxes, out the wazoo. When you land there's hotel tax and all sorts of tourism taxes. Every time you pay your water, bill, your gas bill, your electric bill, every time they come and pick up your trash, you're paying taxes for that. Then when you make investments, you pay capital gains taxes, you pay property tax, everything is taxed everywhere you look, and then to add insult to injury, you got to pay a portion of your income to the government as well, because they're not getting enough. So I have a big issue when there are people out there who are supposed to be our leaders, they're running big countries or big governments or their elected officials, or they're even in the private sector. And they're running big companies like big corporations. And it seems like no matter sort of where they're at, if they are in this upper tier, if they're in the upper echelon of our societal structure, then they are part of what is an oligarchy. They are people who are dictating rules and telling us how we should live our lives while they are not walking the same walk. And so we hear regularly from a lot of these entitled people who say that the rest of us should be paying more taxes, that we've got to raise taxes on the rich. And we often hear even people like bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg and Warren buffet say, we make too much money. We would love to be taxed more, raise our taxes through the roof. They know that it doesn't impact them because what's happening here. Folks, long story short is they are not really being taxed because they're not selling their assets. They are taking loans on their assets. So let's take a quick example. Before we dive into the meat of this, I'm just going to synthesize the whole thing quickly here. Elon Musk, hypothetically say on any given day, he's worth $150 billion. A lot of that money is tied up in assets that is not liquid it's in stock. It's an other assets. So when he were, let's say he were to sell some of that stock, $50 billion worth of stock, he takes a gain and he's got to pay taxes on that difference. So why would he do that then? What if there's an alternative? What if he says, okay, well, how about that? $50 billion? I just used that as collateral for a loan. So I go take out a loan from some, some bank somewhere else. And I use that money as livable income. I do whatever I want with that money. Then I just repay the loan back from my other assets, my other income, I liquidate, whatever I need to do in order to pay that, that, that money back. And you're , you're creating this little bit of a game when you're paying a loan back. That's not taxed as a gain like it would be if you sold shares. So the , the tax rate for that transaction, that second transaction is significantly lower than it would be if you are. I sold our share shares, sold our gain in stocks, for example. And so this is very simple, very simplistic way of sort of looking at this. But the point here is you could raise taxes on the rich people to a thousand percent who cares because they're not paying taxes because they're not realizing the gains that you think they are. Every time they make, you know, $10 billion, or it goes up a significant amount that is seen in, in value in stock. But they're taking loans out using that stock as collateral, and then not paying taxes on the repayments that they're making through the loans back to the banks. I know that probably sounds very complicated and convoluted, but the point here is that these rich people who wagged their fingers at all of us telling us that the rich don't pay their fair share and all that. They're the ones who are not paying their fair share. And as a, as a side note, I am not pro taxes. I do not encourage higher taxes. Okay. I am not in the camp that says, well, we should just tax everybody to death. Don't believe that in all at all. I think that taxes are largely destructive. I don't blame Bezos or Zuckerberg, art or Bloomberg, or Carl ICANN or George Soros for not wanting to pay taxes. Taxes are destructive. I don't want to pay taxes either. And look what some of the look, what these people are doing by not paying taxes. They're creating some pretty amazing things around this world. Now, I also agree that if they're going there, shouldn't be crony capitalism. We shouldn't be creating a system where certain corporations are able to sort of co-mingle themselves with the government to such a degree that they get special privileges over some people that like me that are small businesses, that don't have billions of dollars to go use as collateral to secure loans so that we don't have to pay taxes. We pay a ton of taxes and to our detriment and to society's detriment, because I could do a lot more with the money that we give to the federal government than they can. So can Elan. So consortia is soaking Zuckerberg. So rather than us sort of, you know, having this battle constantly over, well, they don't pay as much taxes or they don't pay as much taxes. And this class warfare BS, can we just agree that taxes are destructive? They are confiscatory and they are taking a part of your life away from you. They better, there better be a good reason before they do that. So anytime that I just hear people getting flippant about raising taxes, they go to the children, think of the kids we are thinking of the kids we are thinking of the children. This is the worst way to provide for their future. By creating an environment that doesn't produce anything. It's just sort of redistributing some money from one group to another while the government Griffes off of it. And society continues to spiral down into the gutter. So I'm not happy about it. And I'm not happy that these guys are escaping the rules, but this is the system folks. And so the point of this whole segment here is really just to double down and confirm that I got a huge stink and problem with taxes. And I have a huge problem with the people who tell us that we should be paying more when they turn around and they don't do that when they don't do, it's a double standard. They're telling us that we got to pay them because they know that they have a mechanism figured out in their own lives that insulate them from the same obligations. And that's a problem with our government. That's a problem that we allowed it to get to this point where there is this interface between private corporations and public government, where we can create these little loopholes that can be exploited to the detriment of us, of this, of the little people, all right , enough of the rant . Let's get into the story. This is coming over from ProPublica , and they're not like the IRS. The government is not happy about this. Anytime that you anger a bunch of billionaires, it's not good. Now, many people think that our senators are the most powerful people in the country and that our Congress people should be held in the highest regard folks. There was, I can't remember the guy, the name of the quote, who said it, but there was some, you know, billionaire Vanderbilts back in the 19 hundreds or whatever that said, why would I ever run for Senate? I already own the best senators money can buy, right? It's the same concept here. And these big tech platform, organizers, the people who are sort of, you know , steering the conversation throughout this country, they know that they know how this works. And so the idea that we're going to hold our elected officials accountable to go and get these people to, you know , sort of nudge them back into the, the standard operation of what tax policy should be is something that I don't have any hope for. All right . So let's go back to the article. Now, enough of this, I told you I can go off on this. All right . The pro Publica says the secret IRS files, the trove of never before records show how the wealthiest avoid income tax posted June 8th, yesterday, Jeff Bezos. Multi-billionaire now the world's richest man did not pay a penny in federal income taxes in 2017. Did it again in 2018, no taxes, not one penny, 2018 Tesla founder, Elon Musk , second richest person in the world also paid no federal income taxes, Bloomberg managed to do it in the same recent years. Carl Icahn, billionaire did it twice. George Soros paid no federal income tax three years in a row. Okay . We're talking about like hundreds of billions of dollars between these people pro Publica obtained a vast trove of IRS records of thousands of the Neisha nation's wealthiest people covering more than 15 years. We've got bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch, Mark Zuckerberg shows not just their income and taxes, but also their investments, their stock trades, their gambling winnings, and even the results of their audits. Oh my goodness. Folks, for all of those people who pro Publica , Jesse Eisinger, Jeff earth Nelson and Paul Kiel datas angered the ruling class in this country. And I mean, the, the actual ruling class, not the elected politicians, pro Publica says taken together. Uh , it demolishes the cornerstone myth of American tax systems that everyone pays their fair share. And the richest Americans pay the most. The IRS records show that the wealth wealthiest can perfectly legally pay income taxes that are only a tiny fraction of the hundreds of millions, if not billions, their fortunes grow each year. So, you know, I sort of take issue with the phrasing of this. Everyone pays their fair share. I don't know that I've ever heard that. Right. I don't, I don't know that I've ever heard that anybody believes that has anybody agreed that the American tax system is everyone pays their fair share? I mean, there's something like 50% of people in this country that pays zero taxes. The last I checked. So it's it's , if you make money in this country, you have to pay taxes. So yes, the , the people making more money are theoretically going to pay the most. Then you get to a certain threshold. Okay. Remember what Joe Biden said? Rich has 400,000. Okay. We're talking about that's the, that's the definition of rich 400,000. These people have billions. It's an order of magnitude different. We're not even in the same neighborhood. We're not even in the same zip code or States for that matter. Most Americans are many Americans live paycheck to paycheck. They a mouse , a map , a mass wealth. In recent years, the median household income was 70,000. They paid 14% in taxes, highest income rate, 37% for couples for earnings above 628,000 ultra rich, the ultra rich effectively sidestep the system. How do they do that? They undertook an analysis. We compared the taxes from the 25 richest Americans to how much Forbes estimated they were worth. They came up with what they called their true tax rate results or start of the 25 people. They saw their worth rise, a collective 401 billion. In four years, they paid a total of 13 billion in income taxes. The IRS shows that's only 3.4%. It's completely different from middle-class people. Okay. Completely different from 2014 to 2018, 65,000 after taxes. But the bulk of their earnings were salaries. Their tax bills were almost as much, nearly 62,000 over that five-year period. So let's take a look at this chart, wealth, income and taxes for the four richest people in the country, wealth growth. So total income reported in this one particular year, 125 million. The true tax rate about wealth wealth for Warren buffet grew by 24 billion. Okay. He reported 125 million in income. So you see how this works. So you report the 125 and million in income because you, you have to liquidate a certain portion of your assets in order to pay probably the interest on the loan, but then you just keep the loan going and you just sort of keep making your minimum payments on the loan. And so you're only paying what you have to , you're only paying taxes on what you have to liquidate in order to cover the interest on the loan. So then he does that. And what you see here is a total reported income of 125 million. So he's paying taxes on 125 million at the high rate, which is 23.7 million. But that relative to the amount of wealth that his, his, his net worth increase was 24.3 billion. So 23.7 million out of 24.3 billion, there's only 0.1%. It's nothing, same equation here with Bezos 99 billion reported 4.2 billion in income paid almost a billion in taxes on top of that, but a billion out of a hundred billion is like 1%, right? Same thing with Bloomberg. 1.3% Elan, a little bit higher, 3.2, 7%. So that's nice. E-Lance , Elan's paying a little bit more. That's great. All right. So no one among the 25 wealthiest avoided as much tax as buffet, the grandfatherly Senti , billionaire, that's perhaps surprising given his public stance as an advocate of higher taxes for the rich, because he doesn't pay them whatever you want. It's like, if you go to dinner, whatever , and somebody else picks up the bill, you order whatever you want. I would never do that. But some people do that, right? Yeah . Whatever you're right. Rich people should pay more taxes because I'm not paying it. Raise it to 45%, 60%, 90%. What do I care? Because all of you, other people, the non ultra rich, the regular rich, or the $400,000 a year, people, which in some areas is not that rich. You can look up the numbers, right? According to Forbes, his riches Rose 24.3%. He only paid 23.7 million in taxes that works out to 0.1% or less than 10 cents for every $100. He added to as wealth experts have long understood the broad, broad outlines of how little the wealthy are tax few specifics about individuals ever emerge in public tax information is among the most zealously guarded secrets in the federal government. ProPublica has decided to reveal this information of some of the wealthiest Americans, because it is only by seeing specifics that the public can understand the realities of our country's tax systems, man. Yeah. Talk about woof. When I was thinking about this case, I was thinking these journalists, I was thinking back through my case law on first amendment jurisprudence and, you know, sort of what, what kind of liability is ProPublica and these journalists opening themselves up to because the government is not going to be happy about this Uber experts or we see here, let's take a look at Warren buffet . So 24.3 billion total reported income 0.5, half a percent of his wealth. So he liquidates a half of a percent of his total wealth to pay for his expenses and then just pays tax on liquidation. See that works consider Bezos 2007, same type of story here. 99 billion, 4.2, right? We got all that. His tax avoidance is even more striking. If you examine 2006 to 2008, a period which ProPublica has complete data is wealth increased by 127 billion, but he reported a total of 6.5 billion. 1.4 billion. He paid in federal taxes is a massive number. Yet it really amounts to 1.1% of the true tax rate on the rise in his fortune. Here's Jeff Bezos again. So we can just sort of chart these things out, right? This is the typical American household let's compare Bezos to regular Americans while Bezos wealth has grown astronomically over the last decade. He's played Abe payday, middle school , minuscule fraction of an in taxes. So here in the typical American household, you have time down here on the bottom. We're going to emerge from 2006 to 2018. On the Y axis, we have, it looks like maybe total net, net worth or net net income for a particular year up to $150,000 average people, 2006, 2007, eight, nine, 10, come around. We have a major dip because people lost value in their home . So their net worth and their , their total assets values went down. And then we will go back up, right? And in America, because we have a graduated tax system, as you start making more money, you pay a graduated tax that is relative to the amount you make, but that's not what happens for Bezos and these other ultra wealthy, they don't that doesn't change over this entirety of the time, right? He's still paying a re right around the same amount of , of taxes, even though his total net worth goes up dramatically. And again, folks, I'm not somebody to go in there and say, well, look, you know that 127 billion , maybe he should be taxed to death on that. It should be confiscatory, you know, somebody call up Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders and, you know, tax those millionaires and billionaires and all that stuff. Like not , I'm not for that. Right. Amazon, what he's created is an amazing thing. It has transformed the entire country in the world. And somebody who is behind that level of innovation, I think should be compensated and rewarded. The court occur accordingly. And the current system creates a lot of that innovation. There's a good reason why these billionaires are doing everything they can to not pay taxes, because it is, it is destructive. They know that now that my problem with them is that they're being very disingenuous. They're liars, essentially. They come out and they tell us all the time that we should all be happy, paying more taxes, you know, and that they're making their contributions. And I'm sure they'd come out and say, well, no, you know, you pay a charity. And, you know, I create these jobs and all of that, I get that. I would, I would, I would appreciate it if they put their money where their mouth is literally, but they don't, they stash it all the way . They tell us that they're doing something differently. And then they really are doing something that is dishonest in my opinion. And so the whole facade here, you know, I used to have a lot of respect for guys like Elon Musk and Bezos and Warren buffet. You know, the more and more that we learn about these people as these leaks continue to fall out, they're all just a bunch of liars. And they come out and they sort of play this, this role on TV. Like, Hey, you know, we're just, you know , we're trying to do good in the world. And I'm just as grandfatherly old investor, you know, I like Coken . Uh, w what is he like Coke and whatever, you know, McDonald's or whatever. He eats Warren buffet. And, you know, Ilan sorta has this marketing facade wrapped around him. This guy works a hundred hours a week. He can suddenly somehow, you know, fly as Tamar's dig, tunnels, underground implant ships in your brain, solve the power grid crisis, put satellites in space, and the list goes on and on. And you go, really one guy can do all of that. Or is this just the big marketing thing that they're cramming down our throats, along with this, you should like higher taxes, facade, that they are creating that all of these ultra with rich people like Zuckerberg, they're going to donate all their money. They're all just these good humanitarians. No, they're not. They're liars. They don't care about URI. Neither do the democratic politicians. Neither do any of the politicians who are wagging their finger down our faces about raising taxes on the rich. They're all a bunch of liars. They know it, and they still try to sell us the light year. After year after year, they know it's destructive for us. That's why it's okay if it's for us, but not for them. And I'm tired of it. Pro Publica is not disclosing how it obtained the data. It was given to them in raw form, no conditions or conclusions reporters spent months processing and analyzing the material to transform it into a database. We then verify the information by comparing elements with dozens of the already public tax details in documents. They vetted it with individuals whose tax information was contained in the trove. Every person described in the story was asked to comment, those who responded including buffet Bloomberg, and I can't all said they had paid the taxes they owed, right? And these guys look, which is right. Look, I don't, I also don't fault them for using the rules that are in place. Kate , you know, if, if the government, which is incompetent and wants to set rules, and people are going to exploit those rules, what would you expect? We talk about this a lot here. People have ambitions, and we want to pit ambition against ambition. And we need to know that this happens at J Madison wrote about it in Federalist 51 or 59 or whatever that one was. We know that people have these incentives. We have to govern accordingly. We don't just govern on hopes and promises. We don't govern on the fact that Warren Buffett's as I, I think we should have higher taxes on rich people. Well, you're your F okay. So is that our policy? We're just going to ask these billionaires to pay out of the goodness of their heart. Like, we're just going to take their word for it. The honor system for taxes with the billionaires. No . So why wouldn't they take advantage of it? Of course they would. Of course they should. All right. Our analysis of the tax data quantifies, how unfair the system is 25 or worth $1.1 trillion for a comparison, it would take 14.3 million American put together to equal that same amount of wealth. Right? So again, I don't care about any of that. Um , you know, the, the, the wealth differentials. Yeah. They're there , they work harder and they've created different, you know, more innovative products than most Americans. Sorry. Okay. Jeff Bezos has created something way more substantial than I I ever have and probably ever will. I hope not, but probably, you know, and he should be compensated accordingly. So I hate this class , Warfield crap, as much as I hate paying taxes in the early years, the personal income tax worked as Congress intended falling squarely on the richest, 1918, only 15% of Americans owed any tax top 1% paid 80% of the revenue raised according to historian. Uh , yeah . You know, and again, I don't four years later, Isaiah , so now it's going into sort of, you know , commentary territory with the tax thing. You know, they, they, they love to go back historically and talk about high taxes and about how the system worked back then, you know, we collected a large part of it from only the wealthiest rich. And there was a percentage of like 92%. And, you know, the country got along just fine with, you know, higher taxes here and you go, yeah, cause that was back in the 18 hundreds or the 19 hundreds. They didn't have an IRS. They didn't have direct access into your bank account. In other words, they didn't have a system built out so that the taxes could just be siphoned off of your revenue, which is what happens now. Right? How many times do you look at your tax bill? You look at your pay. Stub taxes are already out, already been taken. Government just has that. So back in 1902 is the government. They can have a 92% tax rate, but are people paying it? Are they getting a 92% collection rate? Probably not. And the IRS was, it was, you know, a fraction of what it is today. If it even existed about whatever time period we're talking about. So it's , it's comparing two different time periods. It's not a fair comparison. All right, let's take a look. They have a nice little illustration here. Typical income. Let's go through this diagram. It says wealth and income work very differently for the ultra wealthy than most people. This is $100 of income for a typical wage earning American household 10 by 10, we got a hundred dollars right there. The federal guy taxes income at America and household might pay something like this 14%. Okay, they're going to say this is typical taxes. So, and by the way, we're going to say, this is just income tax, right? Forget about gas tax and property tax and travel tax. And every other stink and taxes you pay on a regular stinking basis. There's a lot of taxes right now for many households. The rest of their income goes towards expenses every year with maybe a small amount left over for savings. So we go from here, the rest of that money is spoken for, so they got to pay these in taxes. The typical household might also own a home which often grows in values. So we have the typical wealth growth, okay. Assets are appreciating. You have a savings account. You're funding a 401k, whatever here, they're talking about a house house. So all of that $100, we have a little bit of growth and a little bit of taxes. The middle of the proportion of wealth versus taxes has been about the same. Okay. The wealth. And we still pay taxes. You see how the boxes are still to scale. The box sizes have not changed. This is all to scale, right? And now we know that this is, this is sort of how the proportion of wealth versus taxes has been typical for middle-aged Americans. However, it's inverted for the ultra wealthy. So we see taxes sort of more than growth right now, watch this here's Bezos's income. So this represents a hundred dollars of income from Bezos, his taxes here from 2006 to 2018 or 21% of his income. Okay. So kind of looks like the same here. Oh wait . But for people like Jeff Bezos, now this was his wealth growth right here we have, this is what the American households wealth growth was. And their tax is still say here, you know , four by four, this is a 16 block. This is a nine block here. This is Bezos. Bezos has a 25 block and here his taxes stay the same, but his wealth grows massively income doesn't really matter. Those Amazon shares they've skyrocketed in value is wealth grew far more than what he reported in actual income to the IRS between 2006, 2018 income and wealth grew up income grew up over 120 billion and he paid a minuscule portion in taxes. So this is what it looks like for the typical income today . Book a wealth growth, typical taxes, and then bayzos is for everyone. I'm sorry, for every $100 of wealth growth for Americans, typical Americans pay one 60 in taxes. You get penalized for growing your sort of net worth, not Bezos. He pays one Oh nine for every $100, right? There's a second strategy either . They use , uh , let's say minimize his income and therefore taxes. Berkshire does not pay a dividend. The some , a piece of the profits that many companies pay each quarter to those who own stock Berkshire buffet has argued that it's better to use that money to find investments. They're further going to boost the values of the shares. Many Silicon Valley companies have followed the same practice. All right . So Buffett reiterated that he has begun giving his enormous fortunate way, ultimately plans to donate 99.5% of it to charity. Yeah, we'll see. I believe the money will be more used to society if it's dispersed philanthropically than if, if it's used to slightly reduce an ever-increasing us debt. Yeah. See. So he doesn't want to give him, he doesn't want to give the government their money either because he knows it's just going to go right into the garbage can and pay down the debt, which the government accrued because they're incompetent. All right. What about Ilan? Ilan now? How to, how to mega billionaires pay their mega bills while opting for $1 salaries and hanging on to all , all their Stockwell . According to the public documents, the answer is borrowing money. So this is what the article tells us how this works. I framed this out at the beginning, but let's dig into it for regular people. Borrow borrowing money is often something done out of necessity, like for a car, for a home, for the ultra wealthy. It's a way to access billions without producing income and thus with no income, there's no income tax math provides a clear incentive for this. Let's walk through it. If you own a company and take a huge salary, you pay 37% in income tax. On the bulk of it sell stock. You pay 20% in capital gains tax and you lose some control over your company. But if you take out a loan and these days you'll pay a single digit interest rate and no tax, since loans must be paid back, IRS does not consider them income. Vicks banks typically require collateral, but the wealthy have plenty of that, right? And their stocks and all their assets. The vast majority of the ultra wealthy loans do not appear in the tax records since they're not disclosed to the IRS. Occasionally they're disclosed in securities filings in 2014, Oracle revealed that his CEO Ellison has a credit line secured by 10 billion of his shares. All right . So you just take a credit line. You use that for all of your expenses. It's secured by your 10 billion. You have a basically, I don't know, $10 billion line of credit. Do whatever you want. They'll pay taxes on any of the money that you're using, because it's just a loan. And you're paying the loan back last year, Tesla reported that Musk pledged 92 million of shares that were worth about 57 billion as collateral for personal loans. Right? And so people walk around all the time and they're like, you know, ILA must man. He worked so hard. And I think he just takes a $1 salary. He's just doing this all for us. We thought, okay, now he's not doing it for you. He's doing it. So he doesn't have to pay taxes. Cause if the , if he took home a $30 million salary, he's got to pay 37% taxes on that. So yeah , I'll just take one. And I'm going to take my payment in the form of stock. And he just has these milestones that he's got to hit. And then he gets these big stock awards. That's more collateral. He can put up 57 billion or million or whatever as collateral for a loan, get all the money in the world. He wants not have to pay taxes on it. Pretty good. Unfortunately, I don't have a billion dollars to put up as collateral. Neither do you do you now skeptics my question, how our analysis of , of how little, the super rich pay , they might say that owners of companies get hit by corporate taxes, right? And they, and they do right. They, they, they might also counter the , some billionaires can not avoid income and no taxes after death. They said that these factors alter the fundamental picture. So now they're going to go and sort of, you know, talk about why, why, why, I guess why corporate taxes should be higher. So look, you know, these people are, are paying. Their companies are paying a ton of taxes, right? Payroll tax, every single time that you buy a product on Amazon, you are funding the government, you're paying sales tax on that. So they are generating a ton of taxes. They're just not paying any of it personally. And they tell all of us that we should. So we're going to keep moving on through this article. It's a very long article. I would encourage you to go read through it, but I want to skip ahead. And we're going to take a look at now what the IRS is doing as a response to this. So you get the picture here, the billionaires of the world, they lecture all of us about paying our taxes and then they just kind of don't do it themselves. So now the IRS, since all of this information was released, they are not happy. You don't ever, ever insult the ruling class in this country. Otherwise there will be repercussions coming for you. And you better believe that pro Publica is going to be in the cross hairs for the time being now, the wall street journal is reporting that the IRS is investigating the release of the tax information of wealthy Americans. I don't think that they can do anything to the journalists to ProPublica, but you better believe they're going to try to find out where this came from. This was updated yesterday, June 8th by Richard Rubin says that pro Publica published the details. Federal authorities now are investigating the release of wealthy Americans tax information. According to the IRS, ProPublica , nonprofit , they publish the information. We just went through all of it. Taxpayer information, as we know is confidential. Mr. Reddig told lawmakers that there were internal and external investigations beginning with potential prosecutions to follow. I share concerns for every American about the sensitive and private nature of these trust and confidence in the IRS is sort of the bedrock that people are asking for was Trump's taxes in there. Huh? You know, I would, I would guess that if they were in there and there was a problem that they would be reporting about it. So I'm curious either they're not in there or there's not a problem with them, huh? Right. All right . Let's see what else we've got. Pro Publica says that the news organization didn't know the identity of its source. Describe the information it received as IRS data on thousands of people covering more than 15 years. It isn't certain that the information, a highly unusual airing of private tax data came directly from within the IRS or whether the agency was hacked into some way, the article highlighted years in which Mr. Bezos paid little or no federal task, I'm sure he is not happy. The IRS systems that track employees access to taxpayer information and the agency has fired workers in the past for unauthorized access. But an inspector General's report last year said that there were potential gaps in those systems. ProPublica said that , uh , personal and corporate representatives of Mr. Bezos declined to receive detailed questions about the tax information. Okay. Pay close attention, declined to receive them in a written response. Mr. Buffet told pro Publica, I continue to believe the tax code should be changed. Adding he thought huge dynastic wealth is not desirable for our society. So I think in a different part of the article, see it said, yeah . So somebody. So I think I'm pretty sure in there , in some other part of the article that pro Publica sent a letter to Bezos saying, Hey, we've got a list of questions for you. Can we send those over to you? And can you , uh , you know , let us know your thoughts. And they said, no, we're not willing to receive it . The questions. So don't even send them, right? Not like we're not answering those questions that you sent. It's, we're not even going to look at your garbage questions, peasants, pay your taxes, leave us alone. Get off my land in pro Publica story attaches specific numbers and names by new administration has proposed changing that system by imposing capital gains taxes on appreciated assets at death. So I don't know what that does for the living billionaires, but Democrats pointed to the disclosures on Tuesday as evidence for their case, right? So the Democrats are going to jump all over this and say, see, this shows that we've got to raise taxes on everybody. The big picture, and the data shows that the country has wealthiest who profited immensely during the pandemic have not been paying their fair share, said Ron Wyden on the finance committee and what are you going to do about it? They own you, but the disclosures could hurt support for a different piece of the Biden tax enforcement plan, which would require banks and other financial institutions to provide the IRS with annual data. Republicans had been balking about that idea. All right. So we're going to see what happens. This will be, this will be very interesting. You better believe that these billionaires are not just going to let this one lie. All right. We're going to open up the separate slides over here. See if we can get some questions rocking and rolling here on this segment. And we know that unfortunately, this just takes some time to load. So we're just going to hang tight here while this continues to do its thing. All right, Ms . Fay sent that over. Let me show you , uh , join in on the waiting game with me. Cause this is what we're looking at right now. So , uh, nothing quite there either. We're going to try opening up another PowerPoint slide. See if this one works. Hmm . All right then. Well, so that was a good attempt. And we're going to just continue on moving into our next segment. There's not going to be any questions today. I don't know what the problem is, but that's all right. That means there's more time to talk about Hunter Biden. Oh, all right . We covered Hunter Biden for some time, but we're going to get back into it here today. The N word , one of the worst words, if not the worst word in the entire English language, something that is reprehensible. Something that we have been told for a long time in this country is really connected to racism. And some of the worst parts of America. We hear this from people like Joe Biden and from many others in the media and in our elected government who are constantly scolding people in this country for being white supremacists or for being people who have white privilege or for not teaching our children about the original sin that exists, that was birthed out when America emerged onto the world stage. And I'm talking about the original sin of slavery. We've been having a lot of this conversation here on this channel and throughout the rest of the last year, because we've been spending time talking about the summer of unrest and some of the interactions between law enforcement and civil society, and a lot of these problems. And we were being told STEM from racism. And we've learned this because we elected Joe Biden and Kamala Harris put them in the white house and they are constantly lecturing us about this very regularly. We're going to show you a clip. We're going to show you an article, a press release from the white house, talking about this, talking about rooting out racism and about asking Americans to do better and about ensuring that this is at the forefront of our conversation in this country. And by the way, I don't have any problem with that. I love progress in all sorts of different areas provided that it's actual meaningful progress provided that it's not some sort of political movement undercover of equality and justice, which unfortunately is sort of where this is trending. So when you think about the N word, and when you think about the big problem of racism as it's being defined by the current administration, well, you would imagine that there would be a big, big, big problem. When the president's son uses the N word in casual conversations, you would imagine that the media in this country, the same media that has been hyperventilating over every single incident involving the police for the last year, George Floyd, Brianna Taylor, the list goes on and on, okay? And they tie this all back to racism, to this fundamental problem with our society. They say it is systemic. That's how problematic it is. So what happens if the president's own son is using that in the white house, in the government, maybe they're right. Maybe they are correct. Maybe this is a systemic problem. In fact, the very people who are telling us that we got to work to solve this problem. They don't even realize it, but their own kids, their own son in the white house are using this type of language. Wow. Maybe it's time that we actually talk about it. And so you would imagine that journalists throughout America would be chomping at the bit to finally talk about this. We finally have a clear cut example of a slow, low boil of racism emanating directly from the white house, through the president's of sun . We should talk about this. Finally, America can have his moment. We can have a discussion, a dialogue. So when I went to go find what CNN had to say about it, this is what I found. Oh, go in there this morning. I was doing some prep for the show, hop on CNN type in Hunter Biden. Surely the story, the allegation that in text messages, Hunter Biden was using the N word with his attorney and others. That would be at the front and center. It's a big problem. We've known other people throughout our society get canceled and thrown off the internet for even talking anything, even remotely close to something as bad as the N-word . But when we go to CNN, nothing to be found result from June 8th, Rudy Giuliani, the call makes Trump's call look . Perfect. All right . So dumping on Trump, nothing, nothing new there. Next week we have a , the next article for a Hunter Biden. Certs says that a judge grants, a prosecutor's request as a special master to review material seized during the Giuliani rate . Don't know what that has to do with Hunter. But , uh , Giuliani apparently of course got the laptop from Hunter. So maybe that's it. So May 27th Democrats fight to keep the changing lane ? Nope. Nothing. Nothing about Hunter Biden over there. How about the New York times? Well, on April 3rd, they posted an opinion. They were talking about Hunter Biden. We do a search for him, says, Oh, they're talking about his memoir. Isn't that nice? Right? Hunter Biden sends a love letter to his brother. Look at this beautiful picture of the two of them. Isn't that sweet on March 30th, they talked about Hunter Biden, of course, seven takeaways from beautiful things. President Biden's son opens up about crack addiction, his romantic relationship with his sister-in-law and the new love that halted his cycle of despair. So they're absolutely willing to talk about those things. Love new love of despair, addiction, crack romantic relationship. My sister-in-law all this stuff, but not the N word are they? We go back March 25th, 15 books . The watch warp very excited for Hunter's new book, but nothing about the N word there. Do you see it? Nope. And if you search a little bit narrower Hunter Biden texts again, nothing there. Hunter Biden, general, nothing. Hunter Biden texts, nothing. Now, to be fair, I did search for this stuff this morning and the article came out yesterday. So you would imagine that they would have enough time to publish something about it, but they didn't. How about the Washington post? Maybe they were on it, right? These people respond to breaking news. So you'd imagine that they would have something over here at the Washington post. Anything. Nope. On June 7th, they talked about Hunter Biden's laptop, the April 16 dinner president son arranged for a top executive . So we got something there. The trailer, Trump won many ways that a GOP is rewriting 2020, June 8th. So nothing about the text messages. There , no text messages there. They want to focus on the future, but Trump is not done with the past. Okay. So Trump is lingering onto the past. Nothing about a Hunter Biden's laptop down here, laptop, laptop. And these are all, you know, older stories. So nothing in the way , nothing, the media absolutely just blanks it out. Cause it does doesn't serve their interests. And I don't know how many times I have to , uh, you know, remind myself of this, that they are pure propaganda, but I'm always surprised. I mean, every time I go and I , and I go through the Hunter Biden stuff, I always check. Is anybody talking about it? No, it's the same story that we had the entire election. We had Tony Bobby Alinsky . We had the hard drive leak. We had all of this information coming out about absolute smoking, evidence of corruption involving Joe Biden and Hunter gone with the wind. Oh, nobody wants to talk about it. Same. Thing's happening again. So it's just, when I see something as clear and obvious as this, it's just fun to just make sure we're all well aware. All right . So the daily mail, however, is an actual entity that does some journalism and some research and some reporting. And so they are the people that broke this story. So they're talking about it. Of course. Now what's just June 8th at 23 Eastern time. And we have published June 8th , uh, written by Josh Boswell. It says exclusive from the daily mail.com Hunter Biden address his white lawyer as the N word. Now it's the N word with a GA. Okay. Now I don't know what that means. Or if that matters to anything, I don't know. I watched Larry David's curb your enthusiasm. And I think he's okay with the GA at the end. Uh, I'm not okay with it. It's just too hot for me. I just stay away from it. Right. Uh , as best I can not okay with the GA at the end or the other version of it. But Larry, David, I think got away with it. So it kind of depends, you know, this is a complicated area. So if you, and it was funny by the way, that shows hysterical. So it was it's funny, but I think he's a billionaire. So he might have some other privileges that we don't. We know they don't pay taxes. Maybe they don't, maybe they have racial racism, immunity donates enough money to the right political or I don't know, it's complicated, but it is important to note to GA whatever that means. All right. So he says he used phrases like the N word multiple times use phrases like true debt inward and bantered. I only love you because you're shocking texts on earth. Days after Jo's emotional Tulsa, speech decrying racism right now, we're gonna go through this. What briefly here ? Text messages say he used the N word president's son. He's 51 flippantly address a corporate attorney, George, my serious , who is white by the racial slur with phrases like true dat and word in a December, 2018 conversation, Hunter asked Missouri's how much money do I owe you? Because an word you better not be charging me. Hennessy rate . What? All right , chat . A month later, he cracked jokes about his penis and then told him, he , I only love you because you're black Hunter Biden, the president's son, the same , the president who's been lecturing, all of us about racism and about discrimination in this country in 2018, this is not 20 years ago. We're going to see it's also in 2019 says it's so annoying when you would interject with frivolity says the Chicago lawyer. Yeah, man, we're talking about legal stuff. What are you doing? The damning tax have just emerged days after his father, Joe Biden gave a speech to crying racism on the hundredth anniversary of the Tulsa massacre by NISOD to portray racial justice as a top priority for his administration. Hunter saved a meme of his brother , uh , of his father hugging Barack Obama and a caption describing a joke conversations has , uh , Obama's is going to miss you, man. Joe Joe says, can I say it justice once Obama says, Oh , sorry , go ahead, Joe. And then Joe says, you know , my N word Barak , right? That's the president's son. We're going to take a look at the text here in a minute. He used the N word multiple times. His lawyer costs $845 per hour. According to the text messages, shocking texts may prove embarrassing for his father who last week gave a speech decrying. The Tulsa massacre, the president's son joked in a January, 2019 text says joking about his big penis and said to his lawyer. I only love you because you're black and true dat. N-word January, 2019. I don't know if Joe Biden had officially declared that he was running at that moment in time, but he was running at that moment in time. I think probably , uh, I don't remember the timeline, but right, because we have the, yeah, he absolutely was running because we had the election 2020. It might be at the early stages. So , uh , all right . So in another month he says , uh , how much money do I owe you? Because, and word , you better not be charging me. Hennessy rates. Ms . Serious said that made me sniff in my coffee. Hunter added. That's what I'm saying. N-word or he actually cut it off, cut off the racial slur. Then he texted a picture. So here that is , uh , so it looks like attorney says there is zero coverage or pickup of the story. Zip. They spent a ton of resources on it too for a year. Wow. Thanks. Thank you, Michael Cohen. Right? So they're talking about some story. Uh, I I'd like to know what story that was. That was from 12, 13, 18. So maybe this attorney was brought in to write in a cease and desist or , uh , you know , some sort of a threat says , uh, Oh, and you too , how much money do I owe you? Because N-word you better not be charging me Hennessy rates. This is a Hunter Biden. So does that make me sniff in my coffee? I just made that phrase up. By the way, I should have NAD. Your lineage, clever son of a gun says it's wasted on you. Apparently you do. That's what I'm saying. And then he sends an image. Don't know what that is says . Why are you so tan? I'm sorry for sexting. You accidentally, that was meant for another friend named Georgia. He says my girlfriend sent me a holiday card. Okay. So what is going on here? Okay. So this I'm going to guess is probably a, some , some sort of a sexual image, right? Some, something like that says, why are you so tan making a joke about something that he probably saw in there? So, sorry for sexting you. That was meant for some, someone else named Georgia. And he says, my girlfriend sent me a holiday card. So maybe like, you know, maybe, maybe like this was a nice image of whatever he took of his time with Georgia. He was sending it to Georgia and he say, well, I don't get nice images like that. Right? Like my quote girlfriend sent me a holiday card. So, you know, not a good position to be in as an attorney. Right. As an attorney, you're trying to, you're trying to be amicable with your client and you're trying to foster a conversation and a relationship where you can be candid with one another and you can be jovial when it's time to be jovial, just like anything else, right ? A lawyer, an attorney, client relationship. It doesn't have to be something that is cold and mechanical all the time. You know, attorneys can work with their clients and develop relationships. And sometimes you're working together for years, right? Somebody can work on a case for two years together. You're going to develop a very strong bond with that person. And, you know , you want to have conversations that are a little bit , a bit more lighthearted , but I can tell you , yeah , this I've had a lot of conversations with a lot of clients. We have been in business for seven years now. We've represented thousands of people, never once have I had a client and uh, send me a sex image, call me the N word or, you know, know , challenge me for throwing for our rates or something like that. You know, Hennessy, we're not none of that. So I don't, I don't really know kind of what happened here and why they're joking about , uh, you know, it sounds like sex sexting images or something like that. Now, you know, I, I don't have any really any commentary about the attorney. You know, he's trying to walk a very fine line here. He's trying to, you know, maintain a relationship with a client. Who's obviously not well, right. Hunter Biden sounds like he's, he's got a lot of problems going on in his life in general. And sometimes attorneys are brought in to sort of, you know, kind of keep people centered so that the attorney can say, if you do this thing, this is going to be a big problem. And here's why legally, okay , if you have a friend with somebody and they say, Hey man, that's a stupid idea. They go, yeah, it's stupid. But so what if you have an attorney there? They say, well, that's stupid and you're going to go to prison. Here's why right. That can have a little bit of a different effect. So you don't know if this attorney was brought in for something like that or what the real relationship here was, but you know, this not, not, not appropriate, not something that happens commonly in law . Let me just put it that way. Now we have the transcript here. They're talking about philosophy and they're just bantering with each other. He says, there are ideals. The lawyer says there are ideals of unconditional love that serve as proxies. I don't have many, you God. He says, Oh my God, Edward , did you just a fictional character from the imagination? The collective frightened and my dead brother's unconditional love is what I should rely on on my kids. Aren't sure . And George, what he says, my parents loved was conditioned. He says, my penis, as of late has been unconditional. He says, that's why we are searching. He says, for my penis, he says, we will always be searching. He says, it's a big penis, George. They can always find it. And I only love you because you're black. And Moseri says, you know, it's so annoying when you inject with frivolity. He says, true that and word , but I'm done my rant. Right. Honestly, you know, it sounds like he may be a, you know, high or on something. I don't know. You know, it's hard to speculate, but what the heck are they talking about? It sounds like it went from a serious conversation there . You're talking about philosophy and bantering and he jumps into the penis talk and the, the N word talk . So , uh , okay. You know, it is what it is. If this were a random person, I would absolutely not be going through their text messages of this is the president's son. And in addition to the president's son, this is the son of a president who has told us repeatedly that racism is the biggest problem. And that a lot of America's ills are steeped in white supremacy and racism. In fact, they've said that this is one of the biggest issues in the entire nation. We've talked about this from domestic violent extremism. They're talking about unveiling, new law enforcement, you know, sort of policies and procedures. We've read many of them here on the channel, talking about their response to this. And they're not even looking at their own kids, apparently because this person was having conversations as recent as 2019, 2018, using the N word using racially charged language with his attorney as he , his father was running for president and Joe Biden said that Hunter Biden was the smartest man. He ever knew. Okay, well , uh, the bill, we have teleconferences, let's see the photos were also stored on the laptop. So , uh , this was one of the images that they were able to find, right? It's a meme gun . I'm not going to get bent out of shape over a meme. I don't, I don't particularly care about it, but right. It's, it's a double standard. That really is the problem. The meme dated back to June 5th, 2017. We see it there. It's unclear why Hunter saved the yeah . Neither he nor miss series responded to it comment, right? Yeah, of course. Why would they now, again, this is where the double standard exists. So this is what the white house posted back on March 21, 2021 said that the statement by the president on the international day for the elimination of racial discrimination, one of the core values and beliefs that should bring us together as Americans is standing again , hate and racism. So does Hunter Biden using the N word? Does that count as racism? I w w what what's say yes. That it does. It's, it's a racially charged pejorative term. I don't care whether it has the ER or the, the, the GA at the end of it. I just choose not to use it. Now, there may be other people that say, that's not racism, that's colloquial. That's just, that's just, you know, whatever. Um, okay. I even white people to do that. All right . All right . Well, maybe even as we acknowledge that systemic racism and white supremacy are ugly poisons that have long plagued the United States, we must change the law laws that enable discrimination in our country. And we must change our hearts. Okay. Well, wonder if they're going to start somewhere like in Hunter Biden's room now he says, Joe says racism, xenophobia, nativism, and other forms of intolerance are not problems unique to the United States. We have human problems here today on the international date , we're going to recommit to the fundamental truth, inherent dignity. We must recognize that racism, gender discrimination and other forms must be eliminated under my administration. I signed an order establishing a whole of government approach to equity and racial justice. You see this, he signed the order on my first day, on his first day in office, he did equity racial justice. I wonder if Joe put Hunter Biden's name in there at all, we will not shy away from engaging in the hard work. Hate can have no safe Harbor in America or the world. We must join together to make it stop. So just a major major, just, you know, this , this Joe Biden know that. Does he know that his son is kind of a racist individual? Who knows. All right. Let's uh, let's see if we can get some questions queued up in here. I think we think we might. Let's see if we can get this work in here. We're going to give it, we're gonna give it about 30 seconds. Then I'm going to , I'm going to give us an audible here, if , uh, if we can't get it working. So it looks like it's working. Here's one, we got Sharon he's in the house. As in this context, it's not a racial slur. It's a form of virtue signaling and a way of expressing solidarity and self identification . As one of the black community. You have a Hunter Biden's not black though. Is he part of the black community? His lawyer's not black either. So I'm , I'm having a hard time on that one, I guess. All right . Next up, we got , uh, Sharon Queenie says it could also be just another case of rules for the vs rules for me. Yeah. So I see what you're doing there, Sharon. All right. Let's take a look. We've got E add-on test says I would not really care that much about locker room talk, even though inappropriate , if it were not for the thought and speech police, there are looking for any kind of discussion that proves to them that America is racist. Yeah. And so it's my biggest issue with it too. You know, I know that people say things in private that they would never want open in public. And I know that if somebody, you know, went through the entirety of my life, that they'd pick out a bunch of stuff that they'd say that probably wasn't the best thing to do or say, or, or, or, or, you know, approach to whatever problem you're trying to solve or whatever action you were taking there. And I, I have empathy for people. I have empathy for addicts in particular, because I am myself. One of them, you know, who , who have been through a lot of trials and tribulations in the light, in their, in their lives. But I very rarely, when I catch myself, I try to undo it, find myself dictating to other people what their problems are in a way that we see our government doing to us. Now, them getting elected, turning around, telling the rest of the country, the citizenry that we are something that we're not okay. I don't talk like that. I don't communicate that way. Hunter Biden does. Right . So maybe they should be lecturing him, stay in their hula hoop before they step out and cross into our hula-hoop . I don't appreciate it. And I don't think most, most Americans do either. All right . So those are the questions that came in for the day. We're going to wrap it up there. I want to thank those of you who asked questions today that I didn't answer. I think this is , uh , this is who you are. And we also have , uh , I want to thank everybody who is supporting us at our locals platform, watching the watchers.locals.com is where you can go and be a part of the show.

So , uh , sort of, you know , talking about how, how to think about this problem. You know, a lot of people ask questions, like, what should I say if I get pulled over and what should I do if the cops call me or they show up at my house.
