On June 25, the day after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the White House advertised an online Health and Human Services flier containing a link to AbortionFinder.org, a network that connects women wanting abortions to local facilities that will perform them and provides information on the legality of abortion in their state. The website has a search engine to find abortionists based on the seeker’s location and age, including for minors “15 or younger.” AbortionFinder.org also includes a link to the If/When/How Judicial Bypass (JB) Helpline, which is designed to help minors bypass their parents or guardians to obtain an abortion. This Judicial Bypass system cuts 14-16-year-olds off from their support systems, isolating them and allowing them to kill their children in utero and put their bodies through the trauma of abortion with no familial protection. There’s a picture in the article, and you can find the article in our show notes by the way… Despite studies showing that women who go through abortions suffer increased mental health issues than women who decide to give birth to their children, Biden and his administration are capitalizing on the outrage sparked by the overturning of Roe to target American youth. After the Dobbs decision, the Department of Health and Human Services immediately published a website, “ReproductiveRights.gov,” for the express purpose of providing “accurate and up-to-date information about access to and coverage of reproductive health care and resources.” This page — which is itself a misnomer since abortion is neither health care nor a right — though branding itself as full-range coverage of the choices available to women, made no reference at all to a woman’s choice to keep her baby and instead pandered almost entirely to abortion-related services. The website also linked to AbortionFinder.org, once again promoting the bypass of parental consent for minors to obtain abortions. https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-supreme-court-rules-against-epas-authority-to-limit-emissions-by-remaking-energy-sector?utm_campaign=64487 Supreme Court rules against EPA's authority to limit emissions by remaking energy sector The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a ruling in the case of West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency. The 6-3 ruling sides with West Virginia, which sought to limit the Clean Air Act. At issue were the EPA's plans to use regulation to "reduce carbon pollution mostly by moving production to cleaner sources." Once the EPA determined this course of action, they began to limit allowable emissions from fossil fuel production. They enacted goals that they viewed as a "'reasonable' amount of shift which it based on modeling how much more electricity both natural gas and renewable sources could supply without causing undue cost increases or reducing the overall power supply." Chief Justice Roberts wrote in his opinion: "Since passage of the Act 50 years ago, EPA has exercised this authority by setting performance standards based on measures that would reduce pollution by causing plants to operate more cleanly. In 2015, however, EPA issued a new rule concluding that the 'best system of emission reduction' for existing coal-fired power plants included a requirement that such facilities reduce their own production of electricity, or subsidize increased generation by natural gas, wind, or solar sources." This meant that the EPA was effectively regulating coal businesses to wind down toward the end goal of no longer being in the business of providing energy. Roberts asked the question as to "whether this broader conception of EPA’s authority is within the power granted to it by the Clean Air Act." The opinion states that the EPA does not have this broad authority under the Clean Air Act, and that this power has not been bestowed by Congress. Hey, are you looking to make a move?

A recent poll showed about 45% would vote for Trump compared to 36% who leaned toward DeSantis, the closest any challenger has ever gotten to the former president in a GOP primary poll, with a difference of only 9 points. Now it’s time for the topic that I love… sports! We’ve got a fair bit to cover in the world of sports, so let’s get to it: https://www.outkick.com/australian-tennis-star-nick-kyrgios-spits-at-fan-in-wimbledon-calls-lineswoman-a-snitch/ Wimbledon is under way currently, and Australian tennis star Nick Kyrgios, has caught some attention: https://twitter.com/i/status/1541833358254243841 - Play Video Facing off against Britain’s Paul Jubb, the 27-year-old Kyrgios went through a gauntlet of emotion in the close win (6-3, 1-6, 5-7, 7-6 , 5-7). Kyrgios’ highlights on the day included calling a line judge a “snitch,” sending a tennis ball into orbit, requesting that a fan get escorted out of The Championships and spitting in the direction of the heckling fan after the match. The tennis star has long been known for his on-court antics and contentious persona. Kyrgios has received $113,000 in fines in ONE tournament, at the Southern Open in Cincinnati in the past. The more ya know… In other sports news, Kevin Durant has reportedly requested a trade from the Brooklyn Nets, this after his teammate and fellow star, Kyrie Irving, just signed an extension with the club. Whoops! The Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat are among the teams Durant has on his wish list for a potential trade, sources told Wojnarowski. However, the Nets are not tied to honoring any of Durant's preferred destinations and plan to make a deal that allows them the greatest return of assets, sources told Wojnarowski. There’s also rumor that Kyrie Irving wants to try and move with KD to his new team. Irving eventually opted into the final year of his contract after being unable to find a suitable sign-and-trade for the Nets to make from his preferred list of destinations -- one that included the Los Angeles Lakers, LA Clippers, New York Knicks, Heat, Dallas Mavericks and Philadelphia 76ers. Of those teams, however, only the Lakers were interested in giving Irving a max contract, sources told Wojnarowski -- and they didn't have any package to offer the Nets that was appealing enough to get a sign-and-trade deal done. Durant averaged 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists this season, but he saw action in just 55 games during the regular season as he recovered from an MCL injury. And finally: USC, UCLA planning move from Pac-12 to Big Ten as early as 2024, sources say https://www.espn.com/college-sports/story/_/id/34173688/source-usc-ucla-considering-move-pac-12-big-ten USC and UCLA, two of the Pac-12's flagship programs, are planning to leave the conference for the Big Ten as early as 2024, and a move is considered imminent, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday. There is still a formal notification process, as the two schools have to let the Pac-12 know their intentions to leave. USC and UCLA also have to formally apply to the Big Ten. According to a source, that process is underway. Big Ten presidents and chancellors will meet to vote on the addition of USC & UCLA, sources told ESPN. Multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday that the move is expected to happen. A source called the next steps "formalities.” The reason this move would be less disruptive than potential moves in the ACC is that USC and UCLA have a grant of rights tied to the current Pac-12 television contract, which expires after the 2023 football season and 2023-24 school year. That's why the expectation is that both schools can go to the league for the 2024-25 season and not suffer any financial penalty. Pac-12 officials had been nudging both Los Angeles schools for years to extend the grant of rights. The fact that they didn't hinted that they had greater ambition. "We just got Sooner'd and Horn'd," a high-ranking university official at one of the Pac-12 schools told ESPN, referring to the decision made last year by Texas and Oklahoma to leave the Big 12 conference for the SEC. College sports has officially turned into a farm league for the NBA & NFL… That’s gunna do it for this CrossPolitic Daily News Brief. If you liked the show, hit that share button for me will ya?

The Supreme Court on Thursday dealt a major blow to climate action by handcuffing the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate planet-warming emissions from the country's power plants, just as scientists warn the world is running out of time to get the climate crisis under control. It is a major loss for not only the Biden administration's climate goals, but it also calls into question the future of federal-level climate action and puts even more pressure on Congress to act to reduce emissions. The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Biden administration may rescind a Trump-era immigration program that forces certain asylum seekers arriving at the southwestern border to await approval in Mexico. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., writing for the majority in the 5-to-4 ruling, said an immigration law gave the president discretion to return migrants arriving by land to the country from which they came. But that discretion, he continued, did not amount to an obligation. The key provision, the chief justice wrote, used the word “may” rather than “shall.” That provision, he wrote, “means what it says: ‘May' means ‘may.'” See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In this episode, I have the opportunity to sit down with someone that has digested and synthesize the tax code and brings the tax saving secrets to you. Grant Hey, everybody, welcome to another episode of Financial investing radio. So today I have with me someone that just barely met. But as I review, his biography, his profile what he does, it is in one of those places, which I admittedly know so little about, I lean on so many people for help in this area. Now I get to meet with and speak with an expert in the area of how to take it to the tax man. All right, let me welcome Mark Meyers here today. Welcome, Mark. Mark Hey, thank you so much, Grant, I'm excited to chat with you about this. And, you know, hey, if you can keep more of that hard earned profit. It definitely helps in the wealth accumulation realm for sure. So this exciting topic. Grant Boy, for sure. You know, when when you think about taxes and talking about taxes, you know, it's probably right up there with flossing your teeth, right? It's like, oh, everyone should be doing it. Right. But oh, my gosh, do I really want to talk about taxes. Turns out, as I was reviewing some things that you have done to help people, individuals, businesses, really reduce their tax burden. And putting that money, like you said, or leaving that money back in your pocket, suddenly, it becomes really an interesting topic to address. But before you give away any secrets, let's back up. How is it that you got interested in taxes? What is it that even got you to this point? Mark Grant, you know, it's an interesting story, because I started out my career at the University of Florida, with as an undergrad in exercise physiology, get my Master's in sports management, moved to New York City to manage health clubs, and then moved to Los Angeles to edit, manage more health clubs. And in the process of doing that, I helped a really large high end brand, open a number of different locations. And in that they were they went from a 10 clubs to over 100 clubs. And in that process, I really learn to be an owner operator, every club that I would open or go chant, you know, help return around, I'd have to really be mindful of driving revenue, minimizing expenses, putting the operations in in place, you know, the best practices in place to get the best output. And of course, I was compensated on EBIT margin, so I'd get a base, and then I'd have cash bonus based off of how profitable is the company process, I realized, you know, hey, I might be running health clubs. And I might have a background here, but I have a knack for running companies. And I know there's a lot more opportunity in the financial markets in the financial world, particular to consulting with business owners, that's when I said the light came on after, you know, working well over a decade, you know, 365 days a year, and these clubs are open from, you know, five in the morning till 12 At night, you know, they never got hit. So I'm like, Okay, I'm going to shift gears here and do something fun that can ultimately help other people, and also helped me kind of increase my income opportunity here. Get out of this glass ceiling environment. Grant Yeah. So So you are living this life of just constantly being on right, the lights on, right, because your clubs are on right, the gyms are open, and so you're trying to optimize as much as possible. Talk about school, hard knocks, right? I mean, you learn the lessons along the way, for sure, right? Oh, for sure. Mark I mean, it's one of those things where you know, every penny counts, particularly in that industry. And of course, I worked in a higher end layer. So it was, you know, we're looking at 200 plus dollar a month memberships with spa packages and training and Pilates and Yoga. But at the same time, you still have to be mindful of your margins. That's really, really important. So it was it was a nice experience. It was a nice way to understand how to really learn the p&l, learn the people, learn the drivers, and then of course transitioned over to say, hey, I can speak to business owners, I could speak to those that are looking to, you know, increase efficiency. And there's a lot of opportunity there. So that's kind of where this all kicked off. Grant So in the course of doing this, you start uncovering, I'm assuming, oh, here's a little secret about how I could save a little more money or take some out of the taxes. I imagine over a period of time you started to build up this cadre, or list of or selection of wait, here's some best practices of actually taking the tax back from the tax man and leaving it with you. There's it was it was it that it was a 10 year journey that you invested in to build up that knowledge base? It sounds like, Right? Mark Absolutely. And you know, you really said something important, and it was very accurate in that my, my getting to where I am now didn't happen overnight. In particularly shifting gears, I'd say the last seven or eight years is when I really really shifted gears, to not just talk about can I just not consult with with individuals on their businesses and help them with maybe some financial planning, really shifting gears and saying, hey, there are a lot of different opportunities to reduce tax. And I just went out there. And just like in the past, in my first few years of this, I was kind of more of an advanced insurance specialist and consultant to business owners, and I could go out there and work with any insurance carrier. And I could basically look and say, you know, this is the carrier need for this solution. And this is why this is I realized I could do the same thing in the tax realm, there's just not 100 different, you know, tax savings providers out there, there's probably about 20 to 30 that you want to do business with. And these are small groups are generally fairly boutique, they're not huge. And they offer something very, very specific. And it's somewhere in the 70,000 pages of tax code. And they just so happened to analyze it, apply it. And basically, that's their gig key. So I have a lot of different tools in the tool chest, I have a lot of different relationships with groups that do these things. And I break when I do consulting work, I just put all the pieces of the puzzle together. And it's really cool. I'm not a CPA, I'm not a tax attorney, I'm really literally I call myself a tax savings architect, I've just developed this ability to consult, oh, that's a great title. Grant Wait, say that title again, you're a what? Mark A tax savings architect, Oh, I love it together, I just build I build the plan. And then I bring the vendors in, right, the right team on the on the coach, I'm bringing the right team in to put the right plays in at the right times. And then the implementation goes, you know, off, you know, from there. Grant So, what I want to highlight is you have developed this by doing it again and again, maybe making a mistake fixing it again and again, oh, learning more again, and you put in that 10 year effort to gather and build that experience and that that's the value platform that you bring to the people so they're not off doing 10 years of learning the lessons, right? Mark Oh, for sure. Grant, I'll tell you, these are types of things that, you know, people don't have time, even the best CPAs right. And you can think about any CPA out there, you've got out of every 10 You're gonna have to my experience, you're gonna have two out of 10 that have developed their practice in a way that they'll have forward looking have a forward looking approach. And they'll have more bandwidth than just, you know, recording and tracking and filing right most of them record track and file. Do you have any more expenses? Are you sure you don't have any more you know, you can buy this capital, we get section 179 it so why don't you spend $1 to save 35 cents? No, that's, that's really a good idea if you need what you're buying. But two out of 10 are forward looking right? They're actually stepping outside of the box and seeing what's out there. They're 70,000 pages of tax code. So this is where the key is at 10 years, you're talking about their 70,000 pages of tax code you if you're going to win a championship. If you're a team think about a just a collegiate team or a professional team. They have multiple coaches. They have strength coaches, they have quarterback coaches that are talking about football they have offensive line coaches defensive line coaches look at businesses the reason why Amazon and Microsoft and General Electric and Nike and DuPont the reason why they pay significantly lower taxes than the average individual is because they have teams they have accounting teams, more than one CPA, they have attorneys they have business strategists. So this is what I really do is I bring that team approach to the small to medium size business owner or you don't even have to be a small to medium sized business owner to have tax savings you can be a high income earning executive. Oh really how to Matt navigate the tax code. There's things that you can do to reduce your tax. Grant Okay, so that gets the the question I was gonna ask around who is this for? Definitely the business owner. But if you're, if you're in the High Net Worth areas and individual this is applicable to you as well. Mark Absolutely. There's three there's three He kind of avenues, business owners. And the reason why is business owners are great to work with because they have control over their income, they can determine how much salary they take, they can determine how they take their income. It really they have the control. The other side would be high income earning executives that maybe don't have as much control but they're they're looking at, you know, half a million dollars or more of taxable income per year. I can work with business owners with much less I mean, they can have as low as 250 or so in taxable income, okay, because the more there's more flexibility. And then the Third Avenue is people that are selling highly appreciated assets, once a lot of crypto traders or somebody that had a stock portfolio, but they didn't have this huge blend, it wasn't like a qualified account, it was just a brokerage account, they had positions that just blew up, and now they're sitting on, you know, $5 million with Apple stock. Well, if they pull the trigger on it, they're looking at, you know, if they're California 37%. Grant Yeah, goodbye to that. Mark Yeah, well, I can help them, you know, really take care of that as well either eliminated or different depending on what solutions we're looking at. Grant So, okay, what about what about on the, on the inheritance side, same same sort of story. In other words, let's say you inherited something is you have techniques that helps with that group as well. Mark Well, on the inheritance side, I don't spend a lot of time there, because generally, that should be done prior to and a lot of the work that I do actually blends in with maybe some estate planning attorneys, because you really want to solve that equation prior to the need. If you don't, then unfortunately, if you're above the exemption rate, the estate tax man will come take, you know, 60% of that from your kids, right? Not from you, but from your kids and your loved ones. And they might even have to be, they might have to sell appreciate it like this is a real estate high net worth real estate holder, they're selling off real estate just to pay the estate tax, which is never a good thing. So we when it comes to the gifting and the you know passing on to heirs, we generally integrate that into our planning, but we're doing it prior to so that way the kids and their loved ones can breathe, you know, sleep well at night and not have to worry too much about worrying too much about about that sort of thing. Grant So so let's take the scenario of you're a small and medium business owner and you've got the you've got this tax burden on you. Do you need to be doing the work ahead of time? Is this a whole year of effort that the business owner goes through? Whether they have to be intentional throughout the whole year? Or do your practices, techniques allow you to just sort of come in at the last minute and who 30% off? Thanks, Mark. Have a great year? Mark Yes, well, I would say a little bit of all apply. But proactive forward looking is always the best. The best approach is a forward looking approach. Now I can do hindsight foresight, and then give you insight. On the hindsight we're always looking at, well, what did you miss that you can go back and pick up a lot of people don't realize, particularly in business, there's tax credits that they can pick up in previous years. Currently, right now for the next few months. There's the employee retention tax credit. So there's there's r&d credits, there's there's trends for investing in renewable energy, they can go backwards and pick up previous taxes paid, it's always look at the hindsight, what can we pick up that you paid in the last year or two or three? Ford, Ford sight? Or, you know, foresight is okay, what can we do to change the trajectory of your current income? Because right now, the way we're always looking at pathways, how are you taking your income, because what we need to do is look at creating new pathways. And if you have different pathways to receive the same income, there might be a different taxable situation. But those pathways aren't going to save you. You can't save any money until the pathway is created. So the foresight we're always looking at, well, this is how much money you're taking in now. And you've taken it in one pathway, or maybe two pathways, and this is your taxable outcome. But what if we created two additional pathways? Now you have four pathways, and we're not talking about deferring it. And putting into qualified accounts. I'm not talking about any of that, obviously, that's been going on for years and years and years is there's arguments as to whether or not that really is saving them anything. At the end of the day, we're talking about really taking tax law and the tax code by the horns and saying, hey, the tax code says I can do this, therefore, this money is not taxable. Right. So now that you have this money in your hand, that's not taxable you and you've lowered your adjusted gross income because you took a portion of your money that the tax code says is not taxable because of the way that you've structured it structure that we've just just decreased your taxes and you're like liquid, like the money that you save is liquid, it's in your pocket. If you want to use that for investing you can if you want to use that to recapitalize your business you can if you want to use that to go to Vegas, you can. Grant Yeah, your choice and that's the whole point. It's your choice rather than Uncle Sam. So the strategy seems to be tell me if I've got this right. It's don't fire your CPA because you're going to keep The CPA as a business owner, because you're not the CPA, but what you are bringing is a way to be more productive as you work with the CPA, right, you're bringing in additional knowledge or insight that will then be brought into those conversations with the CPA currently have is that close 100%. Mark And what I always like to tell business owners, and right off the bat is, you know, let's, let's not put your CPA on defense mode, right? They, there's no CPA out there that has the bandwidth, to have this time to vet and research all these different ways to save taxes. I mean, they know a lot, but because they may not know everything that I'll bring to the table, that's okay. So the first thing is make sure that they're not on the defense. And also, I'm not looking to take over any bookkeeping, your tax filing or tax prep, I'm just looking to add additional layers that usually increase revenue for the accounting because it usually does increase their need to maybe have an additional filing each year, or maybe some additional bookkeeping to take to oversee these new solutions. Grant So it's all day for you as a partner in it, your they don't see you as Oh, I'm here taking business from 100%. Mark Most of the time, when I'm speaking to the right CPAs. And I'm introduced to them by the taxpayer, I get introduced to three or four new clients that the CPA has, because they're like, this is great, I have you know, four or five, or depending on the CPA, they might work with a higher net worth individuals, they might have more, but I like those relationships, because they open the door for more opportunity. Now, I will say there's going to be out of that regard every 10 CPAs, there's two that are for thinking. And there's eight that are really just doing the numbers really doing the prep the recording and filing and prepping. Sometimes the eight, there could be some resistance there. And it's it's, it's only because they don't know what they don't know. So in those situations, hey, I always say it's up to you. It's up to the taxpayer, that you're the decision maker, the CPA is not the decision maker. And I have you know, I never want to pry someone away from their CPA, but if they really liked what I'm talking about under CPAs, just very resistant, doing anything that they're outside of their norm was to have dozens and dozens of CPAs all over the nation that would be very happy to interview you. Or you could interview them because they know the solutions and their clients use them. Grant Yeah, I was gonna ask you. So how does you know? What's some guidance for our listeners on? How do you pick? How do you find those two out of the 10? CPAs? Right? What are some of the key things that someone's looking for? to vet your CPA or while you're searching for someone to say, now you're you're part of the 80%? It's you you're actually not going to help me as much I'm looking for the 20% What What are some tips you have? Mark Yeah, first thing Grant is ask them if they do quarterly meetings. If the CPA or the tax preparer for you is not meeting with you quarterly, they are not forward looking, they're likely going to say hey, let's meet in might not even be before the end of the year, it might be in like January or February to say tell me what you have, is that all the expenses you have? Are you sure because we need to file. But if they even if they're only meeting once per year, at the end of the year, and just trying to figure out, okay, we need to shove a little bit more in the qualified account. And maybe you can have any more, you know, maybe you can buy some more capital equipment. That is not, you know, I'm not saying that's well, let me just say this, that is not the accounting, that that someone needs as they're climbing, the echelon of income, if they're still using that CPA, when they're climbing that income bracket, they are going to be paying retail taxes. When everybody else that has reached that level. When they get to a certain level of of success. They figured out how to pay wholesale sales, no different. There's no different there's a retail price, and there's a wholesale price and the people that pay the wholesale price go above and beyond and look for the coupons where the coupons they're in the tax code. Awesome. The IRS is not saying I'm giving out all day. Yeah, they're not putting a flyer out your mail. Grant Wait a minute, are you saying there's no mobile app that they could the tax code mobile app with coupons? I think we should build that. That's a great I should yeah, that's my app. Mark Together Grant. Grant Let's go build that. I bet there's a market for that. Mark Okay. I would bet there is as well. Yeah, absolutely. Grant I love that idea. Okay, so there's something I saw on your profile that intrigued me many things intrigued me and one of those. I just gotta read this off here. Because when I read it, I was like, Where do I sign? It? It was it was learn how to get the IRS to fund a portion of your retirement 100% tax free. So like, right next to the mobile app. We just talked about developing there's this also. Okay, tell me all right. We want the IRS to fund a portion of our retirement 100% tax free any secrets you can share on that? Mark You know, there's a I'll, I won't give everything away, right? I want people to want to ask me some questions. But I will say this, there's a few different ways to do it. One of the ways is when you find these tax savings, right, when there's that when you're applying the code that's going to basically give you a deduction, right? Because there's codes I can actually, you know, there's a little golf tournament. Here's a nice secret out there. A lot of people know about this, but let's a lot of people don't as well, golf tournament out there. It's been going on for years and years and years. And the winner gets a green jacket. I'm not sure if you're a golfing fan. Oh, sure. Or Yep. If you know, who gets the green jacket every year, you know, there there is somewhere in Georgia and a little town. That's right. And it's a very prestigious golf tournament. So about 60 years ago, the higher net worth individuals that lived around that, that golf course realize that they could rent their homes to the corporation's coming in that were or anyone coming in that wanted to, you know, watch the tournament, and they could rent their homes for significantly more than they would you know, what would cost them to go have a little nice vacation? So in that process, they said, Well, these are our personal residence. This is not a this is not an income property. So they lobby to the their friends and Senate and said, Hey, we're not renting our this is not an income producing property. But we're not getting any deductions on this. We're not getting any tax benefits. But so can we have some benefits. So they basically the Congress, and there's two tax codes that validate this, you can rent your personal residence for up to a certain number of days per year. And the dollars that you receive for that rent is tax free, as long as you don't rent your home for over a certain number of days. Now, here's where it gets fun grant, because some people don't want strangers in their house. Right? So even if they could rent their house for significantly more than they could go do something else. They don't want to Airbnb their house, what if they're a business owner? Well, can they rent their business? Can they rent their house to their business for business purposes? Using the same tax code? Absolutely. Now, we just have to determine what the value is, and put it in your bot and your minutes and ultimately integrate it and know, now when you create those deductions, right? Because if you're renting your house, from your business, and you create a deduction at the business level, but didn't cost you anything at the personal level, or the business level, maybe there's a, you know, maybe the meeting you did was whatever, you know, lunch, well, you just created deductions with no cost, no cost. Now that tax savings now the tax savings is getting to you from that's where you're funding your retirement tax free from the IRS because those that those dollars are non taxable. Now, if you get them into a Roth, if you get them into a cash value life insurance policy, you're never paying the taxes again. So now you're looking at never even paying taxes again after you didn't pay the taxes on it to begin with. Okay, that was one little nugget. Grant That's you know, would you just drop the mic on that? You're not holding in my car? Yeah, yeah. Mark No, but if I dropped it, it might fall off my desk. Grant I might, I might fall off that. Yeah, I tell you, Mark, that that was awesome. Just following that flow of what you articulated. I think that's a beautiful thing. Okay. So let me ask you this. With all that you're doing, and with all that people are coming to you for? How do they engage with you? How do they dial it? How they interact with you? How do they how do they say I'm a good candidate for you? Where do they go to find out more about you? Mark Great question, I always just invite him to my website, Grant, I just PeakProfitSolutions.com. And as you know, peak as in a mountain peak, P-E-A-K Profit Solutions, plural PeakProfitSolutions.com. On that you can have, there's places where you can go get case studies, I click here for some case studies, there's a link that says, hey, book an appointment with me, and 20 It literally only takes me 20 minutes to have a conversation with someone to determine if they're a good candidate for any one of the dozen or more solutions that I can bring to the table. That's really the best thing though, the most important thing to know is, you know, just take a little bit of time, even if it's 20 minute phone call, you don't have to come super prepared. They don't have to come with their entire balance and their their previous tax years and their p&l Like just come and say, This is what I how I'm structured. This is how much I'm making every year. I'm writing a lot, you know, just all they need to do is do that. And I and from that point forward, I can determine right out of the gate if they're a good candidate for the architecture to start. Grnant The tax architect. Mark Architect, tax savings, architecture, tax savings architect good building. That's right. Grant That is awesome. That is awesome. Excellent. Mark, thank you for your time today. Any final comments? Mark No, I just appreciate being on the show.

Emma hosts Natasha Lennard, columnist at The Intercept, to discuss her recent reporting before, during, and after Roe V. Wade's overturning by the Supreme Court. Then, Emma is joined by Greg Casar, candidate for Congress in Texas's 35th District, to give us an update from the campaign trail. First, Emma dives into Biden's role as the passive PR president, finally coming along to back other people doing something about Roe, and she covers what a politician that actually has initiative looks like (AOC being the perfect example). Then she's joined by Natasha Lennard as she dives into us finally meeting the known horror of an overturned Roe, looking at how this decision will be enforced by exploring the genre of enforcement that has defined the US' police state throughout its history: an alliance between far-right vigilantism and a reactionary state – seen perfectly in Texas' civil bounty laws. Expanding on this, Lennard walks through the history of the vigilante groups, from lynchers in the Jim Crow south to slave patrols in the north, as a clear expression of the US elites' desire to maintain control of the bodily autonomy of Black people, women, and particularly Black women. Next, with help of the Daily Wire crew, they walk through the importance of antiracism and queer liberation in the fight for reproductive rights, before preparing for the Democratic tactic of calling the right “hypocritical” when they codify abortion prohibition on a national level, and wrapping up the interview by looking to the organizers and activists that have already set up the networks by which we must fight for the right to bodily autonomy. Greg Casar then joins as he dives into the response to Roe trigger laws as someone running for TX-35, and the importance of using your power to bend the arch towards justice, next looking to the importance of empathetic and open policy towards immigrants and solutions to the massive rent issues in the US today. And in the Fun Half: Emma is joined by Matt and Brandon as they dive into the difference between conspiracies used as a distraction, and conspiracies that need distracting from, Ben Shapiro says Trump cannot be held responsible for 1/6, because he can't be responsible for ANYTHING! Rob from NJ dives into the Daily Wire's step into cinema, Joe Rogan, with his finger ever on the prostate pulse of US reactionaries, comes out as pro-DeSantis. The crew dives into Roe's overturn, and the pointlessness (and points) of constantly questioning republicans about exceptions, and James from Ft.

Today, President Biden called on Senators to drop the filibuster to pass federal abortion rights protections, while Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin pointed the finger at Senators Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema as the main stumbling blocks to getting anything done. But James Wallner with The R Street Institute says the reality is there are plenty of ways to pass legislation even with the filibuster. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Congress loves to tell you that their hands are tied and that someone, or something, is holding them back from passing timely, important laws that will save the American republic. Boyd looks at why that's not true and how Congress has a lot more power to make and pass laws then they let on. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
In breaking news, President Biden just said that the filibuster should be temporarily removed in order to codify Roe and accused the Supreme Court of "destabilizing" America and the world. Logan and the rest of the Sekulow team break down President Biden's recent statements and provide their analysis on the future of the filibuster and whether Congress could codify Roe even without the filibuster. This and more today on Sekulow.

Listen to an audio recording of the editorial penned by ACEC Board Chair, Art Barrett: "Gas Tax Holiday Won't Ring up Relief at the Pump." Access the editorial on ACEC's Medium page. Earlier this month, President Joe Biden called for a gas tax holiday. There's no doubt consumers need relief. Gas prices have hit a national average of nearly $5.00 per gallon but suspending the gas tax is not a serious approach to lowering prices. It's a bad idea that would make America's infrastructure problems worse without helping America's working families or bringing meaningful relief at the pump. Experience and data show that suspending the gas tax, also called a user fee, would have little impact on the cost of gasoline. According to budget modeling conducted earlier this year by Penn Wharton, suspending the federal gas tax for ten months from March to December 2022 would save less than $50 per person — between $16 and $47 to be exact. President Biden is proposing a three-month suspension at just a fraction of those already meager savings. Just a handful of states have taken it upon themselves to pass their own state user fee suspensions, and still there is little bipartisan support in Congress for a federal gas tax holiday. The reason is simple — the state holidays failed to produce the desired effect while their coffers for roadway improvements suffered. There's bipartisan agreement that a gas tax holiday is not the right approach. Chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Peter DeFazio (D-OR) noted, “This policy would at best achieve only minuscule relief while blowing a $10 billion dollar hole in the Highway Trust Fund.” Republican Senator Roger Wicker from Miss., said, “A gas tax holiday would do next to nothing to relieve the pain Americans are feeling at the pump.” This is one of the few issues today that can bring together Mitch McConnell and Nancy Pelosi. The minimal savings from a gas tax holiday will be temporary and even undercut new infrastructure investment in communities across the country. Infrastructure investment that is critical to restoring economic growth. User fee revenues at the pump have a direct line of effect on the solvency of the Highway Trust Fund which is dedicated money to improve roads and mass transit. By suspending the gas tax, lawmakers would be further undermining progress on infrastructure improvements, which are already being hampered by inflation in the cost of construction materials and labor. There are several initiatives the Administration could take but suspending the federal gas tax is not one of them. We need solutions like increasing refining capacity and efficiency along with new sources of oil from North America. Those actions will provide long-term relief and act as the bridge we need to transition to renewable sources of energy. With rising prices at the pump, elected officials are desperate for ways to show that they are responding to consumers stretched thin by inflation. They are hoping Americans buy into simple soundbites rather than holding elected officials accountable. But Americans deserve better. Now is the time for action to truly help families keep more of their hard-earned money, not more gimmicks.
This week in a special edition of “Off The Cuff,” Justin is joined by U.S. Department of Education Under Secretary James Kvaal to discuss the administration's higher education priorities.

Hour 1 The Steve Gruber Show— Live from the No Panic Zone—I'm Steve Gruber—I am America's Voice—God Bless America—God Bless You and let's do this! This is the Steve Gruber show— And I'm here to flush out the lying politicians—the tech giants—and the babbling herd of sheep— Here are three big things you need to know right now— ONE— It was just a matter of time—now the thought police are trying to erase Abraham Lincoln—the man who saved the nation and freed the slaves is being targeted for removal at an Ivy league school— TWO— The heat is on for Democrats—the number of those retiring from Congress is exploding now to 32—as they are running for the exits before the roof caves in—The Red Roof that is— THREE— Despite all the hysteria on the cases decided so far— there are still 2 Big cases hanging in the balance—that were pushed to yet another unscheduled so-called decision day—forcing us to wait for the answers again— Well the court is out of time now—with the final two decisions coming in just a little bit later today—that was announced yesterday—so it will happen— And it seems to me that with every passing Day—and every time they haven't releases the opinions—it indicates that the last 2 cases to be released—could be the biggest bombshells of the entire Supreme Court term— And that is really saying something—considering Roe V Wade was overturned—the Second Amendment was strengthened and Religious Liberty picked up two big wins— and that's all in just the last week— One of those cases—still to be resolved— is the Remain in Mexico policy challenge—implemented by former President Donald Trump—and targeted by the Biden Administration to be cancelled—it could have a big impact on how border security is handled going forward—which could be a major decision— Under President Trump it forced asylum seekers to remain in Mexico to wait for their hearings—Biden and his open border team—want to allow them all to wait here—which often results in illegal aliens disappearing into the interior of the country never to be seen again— and right now I have to wonder—if this court is willing to go further and declare the condition of the border a violation of Federal Law— or worse—find something about it Unconstitutional— we will soon find out— And maybe the biggest case of all that we are still yet to hear—is West Virginia Versus EPA—and this case has the possibility of returning the entire nation to the Constitutional Republic that we had before the New Deal rolled out by Franklin Roosevelt in the 1930's— First and foremost by pushing back over bearing regulations on how states generate power— coming from un-elected bureaucrats in the alphabet agencies—which not only include the EPA—BUT a host of other agencies like The Consumer Product Safety Commission that can wreak havoc on small companies—or the FCC that can tell me what I am allowed to talk about—or the Federal Election Commission that could nationalize ballot harvesting or tell states how they must run elections in other ways— or the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission—or FERC that could ban all pipelines and other forms of transporting oil, natural gas and other fossil fuels— and that is just the short list— of the nearly unlimited power of Washington's regulatory agencies—that do not appear anywhere in the Constitution— You see the case began when the state of West Virginia said ‘Enough!' And challenged the Environmental Protection Agency—and how it regulates so-called greenhouse gases—and other emissions coming from both coal fired and natural gas fired powered plants— That in and of itself is important in pushing back against government over-reach and the incredible unfettered power that has been collected by unelected officials in all of these government alphabet agencies— And this has been going on—like I said—ever since FDR unleashed the regulatory state on America—when he launched the New Deal in the Early 1930's—more and more through the years—the United States Government has handed off more and more power to agencies like the EPA but that is just the beginning— And I want to explain this to you carefully one more time before we learn the court's decision— It's all about this idea called The Chevron Doctrine—which has evolved over the past 85 years into a bureaucratic monster—that basically says—if a statute is silent on a certain point—the courts should defer to an executive agency's interpretation to decide what happens—as long as the interpretation is reasonable—whatever that means— And let's be very clear on this point: What it means in practical application is “Regulation without Representation”—because these rules—which really are laws—are put into place with the power to take your property—your money and more importantly your freedom—because these agencies can have you convicted of violating the rules created without any input from elected representatives—fine you exorbitant amounts of money and have you tossed in jail—often with very little recourse to fight back— because appeals are almost always handled by the same agency that leveled the charges in the first place— I don't think that's what James Madison and the rest had in mind when they were writing— The Covid 19 pandemic—tore the curtain back on all of this—when OSHA tried to make vaccines mandatory for companies with 100 employees or more—But the Supreme Court said OSHA did not have such broad authority— of when the CDC told landlords across the nation—it was extending a moratorium on rent—telling landlords they could not collect a dime— another gross over reach by unelected bureaucrats—drunk with power! Which brings us to what could really happen now—The Court has shown clearly that it is more than willing to go beyond any given case—to address the fundamental problems—and that's why Roe V Wade got tossed— We also know that Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have a great disdain for the Chevron Doctrine—and sounded more than willing to get rid of it—during oral arguments— So, the Court is now poised to adopt the non-delegation doctrine—and this would devastate the regulatory agencies that have been dominating America's landscape since the 1930's— This goes again to Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal—that Congress could pass laws that delegate its power to administrative agencies—with massive power to address and dictate how we handle public health, safety, welfare, the work place and so much more— But the Non-Delegation doctrine—argues that is not Constitutional—and it's not how our Representative Republic is supposed to work—and the pending ruling could up end the entire regulation framework built by both parties over the past several decades— that have punished Americans financially while they lined their pockets— In fact, if the court adopts the non-delegation doctrine, which I believe it will today—it will fundamentally alter the structure of The United States Government as you have always known it—and return that power to Congress— It will impact Agriculture and the use of pesticides, workplace safety, environmental protections, working conditions, overtime pay, discrimination rules—and yes vaccinations—in fact it will impact just about every citizen in the country—and return us to the principals as laid out by the founders of this great nation— If you thought the Democrats have been screaming so far—you ain't seen nothin yet! The biggest problem they face—is they will finally realize they have lost the Supreme Court and their ability to force policies onto the nation—that otherwise would NEVER get through Congress or the legislatures of the 50 states—you see killing the regulatory state—will kill their unchecked power—and that is something they apparently have not been thinking about— BUT it is something that is going to send them over the edge— They will be screaming about the end of Democracy and other such histrionic non-sense—when in actuality—dumping the Chevron Doctrine will actually put us back on the path to the Republic we were first supposed to be—and in fact this Supreme Court may save the Republic in the process at last and right the many socialist wrongs of FDR, Barack Obama, and now Joe Biden— And when it happens—and it will—just remember—that means President Trump wins again. It also means America First wins big—and so do you! And that will also drive the progressives wild!
