Jamarlin Martin: You’re listening to GHOGH with Jamarlin Martin. We’ve got a go exhausting or go residence strategy as we speak to the main tech leaders, politicians and influencers. Let’s GHOGH! Hope everybody’s New Yr’s off to a superb begin. This yr on the GHOGH present, we’re going to have episodes the place we don’t have a visitor. There’s going to be episodes the place I’ve a lot to say, a lot stuff to cowl, we gained’t have a visitor on the present.
So hopefully you just like the remixed format for this season the place typically we’ll have friends and different occasions it’s simply going to be me. Let’s dive proper into a number of the stuff that I needed to cowl. So the very first thing is monetary markets and making an attempt to know what’s happening as a result of whether or not you’re an investor or not, I feel finally it’s going to influence most of us when it comes to what’s about to play out right here in america and globally.
I wrote an article on Moguldom.com referred to as “The 10-Yr, 300-% Bull Market Is Over”. Primarily what I’m saying is that, after the monetary disaster, the Fed slammed charges down near zero. The Fed began printing cash in what they name quantitative easing, or QE. Once you hear this time period, the one factor you might want to know is that the Fed is creating cash and pushing liquidity into the system. It’s giving cash to banks at tremendous low cost charges the place the Fed injects the cash into the financial institution. The financial institution has to pay it again at tremendous low cost charges. The cash is created electronically and now the banks, the monetary establishments can go on the market and begin shopping for stuff. So that you get the cash at just about no value. And I can go purchase actual property, I can go purchase shares, I can go purchase bonds. I can go purchase all totally different flavors of monetary belongings, enterprise capital. And so cash has been actually low cost from low charges and QE or cash printing.
Okay. Nevertheless, 10 years into the bull market, now we now have charges going up and we’ve got what’s referred to as QT, quantitative tightening. It’s the reverse of QE. So if QE helps you on the best way up, the cash printing helps you on the best way up, the Federal Reserve is now doing this in reverse and the market is beginning to really feel the Federal Reserve taking again help for monetary belongings. And the market, to me, is screaming to those that this bull market is 10 years in, it’s drained. This bull market is pretend. This bull market goes to have a day of reckoning, the place the concept the financial system is robust, however the market will commerce down in the event you normalize charges and for those who hold QT going, when it comes to eradicating liquidity out the system, primarily the market is screaming to you that it wants the Federal Reserve to help itself.
And that’s not a wholesome, robust financial system. I hear people
quoting Warren Buffet and saying, “Hey, you bought to take a position for the lengthy
time period.” Elements of that could be true. Nevertheless, this inventory market is dominated
by failing shares. It’s dominated by excessive comparatively excessive P/E, dangerous shares.
Most of them are usually not a part of the Warren Buffett thesis. If that’s what you’re
considering, like, hey, I want to take a position long run and I’m not going to attempt to
time the market. However the problem is that the market is dominated by fame and the
fame shares, Fb, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Alphabet. They’ve led the
market up they usually have led the market down primarily. In This fall, the market went
down so quick, 20 %, that market individuals haven’t seen this velocity of
decline because the Nice Melancholy.
So the market is buying and selling down quick as a result of, I consider, sensible cash is realizing that my danger/reward ratios are off. Primarily 10 years in after being up 300 %, there’s not rather a lot left to realize. So perhaps I can achieve a few proportion factors on the upside over the subsequent couple of years with these valuations. Nevertheless, as a result of the market is so fatigued and drained after 10 years, there’s little or no you will get on the upside. Okay? So perhaps you forecast, hey, perhaps I can squeeze an additional 5 % out of this bull market 10 years in, however you can lose.
If this bubble, if this financial cycle goes to finish like 2008 and 2000, the place market’s traded down 50 %, then I’m taking 50 % or extra danger, for probably 5 or 10 % if I’m wanting on the massive image. And so for long-term buyers, it doesn’t imply you need to promote every part. Primarily, your investments might go into totally different gears. So in an setting the place belongings appear to be they’re going to commerce down and market valuations are excessive, P/E ratios are excessive, individuals have stopped respecting money movement and income, they usually don’t care about these things on the finish of financial cycles.
So in case you’re in that surroundings, then perhaps you modify gears in your portfolio and you’ve got a much bigger allocation of bonds and gold and money, and impossibly arduous actual property. I’m not saying that, hey, it’s time to promote every part, however it’s time when it comes to the place America goes, the place the worldwide financial system goes. This factor goes to break down. You’re going to see this factor more than likely commerce down very, very quick. When you have loads of dangers on the desk then most certainly you’re going to get cracked 30, probably 50 % over the subsequent few years as the brand new monetary disaster begins.
Some individuals will say, hey, as a result of the market traded down
on the finish of 2000, I might be very diligent in interested by what surroundings
we’re in and the way can I downgrade my danger at this stage within the financial cycle.
And so, within the article on moguldom.com, “The 10-Yr, 300-% Bull
Market Is Over”, I speak about taking a look at gold as an funding the place in
occasions of disaster and occasions of danger off, the place people are taking dangers off the
desk, at the least sensible cash is taking danger off the desk, that gold, I feel,
goes to be a really engaging funding. It’s not correlated with shares.
And I feel most individuals ought to have a bit of gold as an funding. You possibly can
spend money on onerous gold bars or you’ll be able to make investments into the GLD ETF which holds gold
investments. That’s GLD and you can begin investing for about $150.
The bull market is over and this factor goes to proceed to crash down. You noticed markets commerce down quick after which it traded up actual quick. Does that imply that issues are gonna go proper again? No. Market professionals who’ve been by means of growth and bust cycles perceive that what’s happening proper now’s a bear market rally. Primarily, lots of people get brief, markets go to the acute on the draw back. They overshoot and the bear market rally goes up actually quick. That doesn’t imply every thing goes to return, and issues are gonna go up one other 30 or 40 %.
Lengthy story brief, the bull market is over, China is quickly slowing. Europe is quickly slowing and what you’re going to see in Q1, the USA goes to begin to quickly sluggish and it’s going to shock individuals and everybody and their uncle who’re buyers, they’re famed up, leveraged lengthy and so when individuals begin operating for the exits they usually begin to attempt to get out of this market, you’re going to see what we noticed in This fall, that commerce down 20 %, you’re going to see extra of that. And naturally, Donald Trump with commerce struggle, the federal government shut-down, he has all these things happening on the incorrect time.
There’s an excessive amount of danger out there on the similar time. So nobody factor will crash the market, however every little thing added up, it’s an enormous danger bomb. So proper now, I don’t assume it’s time to get famed up. I don’t assume it’s time to place lots of dangers on the desk. I might be strongly taking a look at gold as an funding, for the long run.
The subsequent factor I need to contact on is Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez. She made a variety of press during the last couple of weeks by coming
out and saying she advocates for a marginal tax fee of as much as 70 %, and
the suitable wing media, who hate her, instantly, they’re going to hate a younger
lady they usually’re undoubtedly going to hate a younger vocal Brown lady. A variety of
them simply by default, earlier than you even get began into the socialism, there’s
going to be a excessive chance of bias towards somebody banging so exhausting, going
as arduous as she goes, being so vocal. Her start line is she’s a younger Brown
lady and she or he’s not terrified of them, that she bangs more durable than loads of these
different Democrats towards them. And that shakes up the political institution
and also you’re seeing this, and also you’re gonna see her most certainly grow to be a much bigger
star on the left.
She’s not shy about the truth that she’s a democratic socialist, and so what received a whole lot of people consideration is that she’s saying let’s contemplate taking marginal tax charges as much as 70 %. The suitable wing media, they attempt to mischaracterize it, put out some deceptive stuff. However what she was speaking about was after the primary $10 million of revenue, the revenue after that $10 million can be taxed as much as 70 %. In order that’s necessary. It’s not only a blanket 70 %, however after the primary $10 million of revenue, the tax fee might go as much as 70 %. It’s primarily a tax the rich play.
And I consider we’d like larger taxes, personally I consider that. However I’ve an issue with this. Right here the state of affairs is, America has document debt, trillions and trillions of dollars of debt. America is bankrupt, it doesn’t have cash. It’s a credit score financial system. The nation resides approach past its means and has been for a very long time, and the nation has been printing cash, and the Ponzi scheme has labored. Primarily, we’ll print cash, and we’ll be effective till it’s not positive. The issue I’ve with this concept is that for those who have been to tax Jay-Z or Oprah for an instance, at 70 % on the federal degree, they nonetheless are going to need to pay taxes most certainly on the state and metropolis degree. And so the considering among the many socialists is that, once they run their spreadsheets and say, hey, we’d like extra money, we’re simply going to take it from the rich and take extra of their revenue, 70 % they usually can fear about state tax.
Perhaps in California, as soon as the state and metropolis tax goes up
to 80, 85 % on their revenue, and the assumption or the idea is it’s an
straightforward repair and also you simply take the cash from right here. You simply take it from Jay-Z,
Oprah, Robert Smith, the black billionaire personal fairness investor, you simply
take it from them, so we’ll simply get the cash from them. So the idea on
the spreadsheet is that when you modify the tax coverage, all the cash,
every little thing stays principally the identical. However the issue is that your Oprah, your
Jay-Z, your Robert Smith, they might regulate. And they also’re not going to be
doing all the things the identical. If their revenue is taxed federal, state and metropolis up
to 80, 90 %, if I’ve to go to work and the U.S. authorities is taking
80, 70, 80, 90 % when it comes to state and metropolis taxes, these individuals are so
refined, they’re not going to remain there, they’re not going to maintain on
doing the identical issues.
There’s additionally a danger the place if anyone is ready to create one thing extraordinary they usually’re capable of generate numerous revenue, they don’t need to work for the federal government, primarily. So if I’m capable of bust my ass and actually make a number of sacrifices and get fortunate, and I’m capable of generate a whole lot of revenue, if I’ve to offer away 80, 90 % in federal, state, metropolis taxes, are these individuals, these entrepreneurs, are these individuals going to remain in the identical place? Are they going to maintain working on the similar price? Are they going to be simply as productive when you begin taking $eight to $9 out of $10 out of their paycheck? So I feel it’s unrealistic when it comes to the economics of this. So I didn’t help the Trump tax minimize, notably with permitting Google and Apple and Microsoft to deliver tons of of billions of dollars money to the USA tax free.
I do consider that larger taxes are wanted in the USA, however going as much as 70 % even on a marginal foundation is excessive. And I feel, impractical, which means that a few of these insurance policies you see politicians speak about, they sound good, they’re straightforward. Hey, let’s simply take 80, 90 % of the revenue over right here and we’ll repair these holes. And our calculation is, the inspiration goes to remain the identical once we begin taking 70 and 90 % of the revenue when you think about different taxes. That doesn’t make sense to me. It’s on the acute aspect. However once I take a look at gifted political leaders like Ocasio-Cortez, that’s one difficulty I don’t agree with, however I’m wanting on the political chief in combination. So she has loads of different stuff similar to, she doesn’t need the lobbyist cash. That’s one other factor that scares the institution. She gained’t take the overseas curiosity and lobbyist cash. When she speaks, nobody owns her. She is an genuine politician the place the company curiosity and particular curiosity teams don’t management her. She owns her platform. Whenever you take a look at the opposite company democrats, they will’t say that. They’re owned by lobbyists. The large cash that backs them, they acquired to deal with these individuals.
And one other factor that got here up related to Ocasio-Cortez’s tax coverage… Tulsi Gabbard, out of Hawaii, a congresswoman out of Hawaii who’s Hindu, the company democrats, the standard suspects on the company democrat aspect, they began to assault her yesterday. As quickly as she introduced she was operating for president, they’re ganging up, attacking her, the company wing of the Democratic Celebration. And let me inform you why they’re attacking her. One, she is a warfare veteran. She fought within the Iraq warfare. She was about that life. She truly needed to see and battle in a conflict, and so she doesn’t help the hawks in Washington and their lobbyist pals. She doesn’t help taking a look at all these nations around the globe and taking a look at what leaders do you need to take away, like a chessboard. She shouldn’t be for going into Syria and taking out a aspect and let’s gamble and see what occurs subsequent.
Okay. One other factor they don’t like is that, there was a report that Assad used chemical weapons. She stated, wait, we all know what occurred with Iraq with Hillary Clinton voting to go in and begin murdering plenty of Iraqis and placing loads of Black and Brown troops in danger that a number of these company democrats, if you begin speaking about conflict and, hey, anyone’s doing this over there, let’s go, let’s go. They’re very straightforward to tug that set off on warfare. The regime change wars. She’s not with that stuff. And so she was taking a look at, in my understanding, is that, hey, let’s wait and never attempt to overthrow one other chief within the Center East, the place when you get this improper, you’re going to be taking a look at one other Iraq state of affairs, one other Afghanistan state of affairs.
And the assaults on Tulsi Gabbard pertains to, I consider although, Ocasio-Cortez’s tax coverage, as a result of on one hand, if the socialists are speaking about, we would like free healthcare, free schooling, we need to scale back the army finances in america. However we additionally need regime-change wars each couple of years. A 3rd grader can perceive that the maths doesn’t work on that. So the Company Democrats, they love going into wars. One thing seems to be dangerous over there. Let’s get the troops prepared and let’s go into limitless wars perpetually. However the issue is additionally they need increasingly more free stuff. Free Healthcare, free schooling, regime-change wars. The message is we will have all of it on the similar time and even a reduce the army finances. And so one of many issues they don’t like, in fact, is Tulsi Gabbard, who has fought in a struggle, is towards regime-change wars.
One other factor they don’t like is in 2004, she made some insensitive feedback referring to homosexual marriage. She made these feedback in 2004. In order that they’re going to assault her and convey these points again up. They haven’t accomplished it but, however you possibly can anticipate that. They’re going to return in 2004, the company democrats and their lobbyist pals. They’re going to attempt to dig up as a lot dust as they will and use that towards her. So once they attempt to undercut her and her operating for president, which I feel is sweet, I feel it’s wholesome for America. It’s good for America to see extra ladies step up and run for president. However the subsequent factor they’re going to assault her on these feedback referring to similar intercourse marriage. So once they assault her, take note, Barack Obama was towards similar intercourse marriage, notably in 2004. He was allowed to evolve when it comes to his relationship with the LGBT group. He was allowed to evolve.
Once they convey these feedback again up from 2004, hold that in thoughts. How are you going to guys embrace Obama, who was towards similar intercourse marriage and was basically towards it? He advanced on that concern. You embrace him, however you need to go assault everybody else who on the similar interval was towards similar intercourse marriage as nicely. In order that’s one of many points they’re going to attempt to assault her on. So one other one is the prime minister of India, Modi. He’s thought-about by many to be far proper. He’s a Hindu they usually take him to process and his political social gathering when it comes to their relationship with Muslims in India, 20 % of India is Muslim. Tulsi Gabbard is a Hindu. And so she’s been pleasant with the prime minister of India and so, the company democrats, they are saying, “Hey, why are you so pleasant with Modi”, who we understand as type of the Republican, far proper man in India. They’ve an issue with that.
Evaluating this concern, the very first thing that I take into consideration is, why are you giving Tulsi Gabbard a tough time for being pleasant with the chief of India, who’s additionally Hindu, her religion? Why are you giving her such a tough time? You could have legitimate criticisms, however at today and hour, individuals need to see consistency. And so it doesn’t make sense to assault her on being pleasant with Modi and his political social gathering in India, however you gained’t assault U.S. politicians who’re crip strolling for Netanyahu in Israel, who lots of people would think about the Donald Trump of Israel, the MAGA of Israel, that Netanyahu is way proper. Yahoo may be counted on banging towards the Palestinians, like Donald Trump is banging towards Brown individuals, right here in america. The company democrats will say that it’s okay for all of our legislators to be very pleasant with Netanyahu and reward Netanyahu and the far proper in Israel. However we don’t need Tulsi Gabbard to be pleasant as a Hindu with the Modi political celebration in India, and present you see this hypocrisy the place the Company Democrats lack consistency. You will notice them.
It’s politically well-liked to speak all day about Donald Trump and assault Donald Trump. It’s actually common to try this. It’s protected to try this inside the Democratic Celebration institution. In order that they’re going to maintain on doing it within the frequency, and they need to. However the issue is, when you’re actually about that life, that anti-MAGA life based mostly in your values and rules, it shouldn’t matter the place you see some of these issues. So whether or not it’s in america or whether or not it’s an Israel or whether or not it’s in Zimbabwe, should you see themes, patterns and issues that look comparable, you need to be towards all of it, you need to be constant.
So the issue I’ve with company democrats,
lobbyist-friendly democrats, is that they’re towards MAGA and Donald Trump right here
the place it’s politically protected, you’re not going to lose your help for banging
towards Donald Trump, you’re going to realize on that entrance. However once they see
Donald Trump-type of white supremacy or racism in Palestine, towards the individuals
of Palestine, you’re not going to listen to them talking out towards Netanyahu. You
won’t hear that from a company democrat, that the one MAGA they’re
allowed to be towards is right here in the USA. And I feel on this day and
time individuals need to see consistency.
