    Monday night, the FBI raided the Mar-a-Lago residence of former President Donald Trump. Late Friday afternoon, the contents of the warrant were unsealed, revealing the Justice Department was searching for records with top secret classifications. It is still unknown what exactly was seized from the Mar-a-Lago property, yet many GOP representatives are demanding a full briefing about the raid from Attorney General Merrick Garland. Former Justice Department Deputy Assistant Attorney General Tom Dupree discusses the nature of the warrant, what's currently being investigated by the DOJ, and whether or not it's a case of overreach by the FBI.   Texas has been dealing firsthand with the surge of migrants at the country's southern border. In an attempt to combat the crisis, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has been sending buses of migrants to cities that once welcomed them, such as Washington D.C. and New York City. NYC Mayor Eric Adams has condemned Governor Abbott's actions, accusing him of anti-immigrant hatred. FOX News National Correspondent Nate Foy explains why Texas has long felt abandoned when it comes to dealing with illegal immigration, the message being sent by the busing, and why officials from across the board expect more from the Biden administration.

    Afghanistan's Recognition Problem

    There isn't a single country in the world that recognizes the Taliban as a legitimate government. And neither do many Afghans. One year after the U.S. pulled out of Afghanistan, reporter Najib Aminy checks back in with a teacher from Kabul named Aysha, who fled to the U.K. She was one of the 120,000 people airlifted out of the country as the Taliban took control. Like many other Afghan refugees, she's frustrated that the Taliban's leadership has resulted in having to leave her home country behind. While the Biden administration has claimed to welcome refugees from both Afghanistan and Ukraine, the process for people fleeing the two countries has been unequal. To gain temporary entry to the United States, more than 66,000 Afghans applied through a process called humanitarian parole. But the hurdles for Afghans are huge, including monthslong wait times, piles of paperwork and a steep cost ($575 per person). In contrast, after Russia invaded Ukraine, the United States created a special humanitarian parole process for Ukrainians caught in the conflict – it can be filed online and has no application fee. Government records reveal that only 123 Afghan humanitarian parole applicants have been approved, compared with 68,000 Ukrainian applicants.  Guest host Ike Sriskandarajah and Aminy then head to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where $7 billion in assets belonging to Afghanistan has sat frozen since the Taliban took control of the country last year. Aminy talks with Shah Mehrabi, an economist who sits on the governing board of the Afghan central bank, who says that without access to those assets, the country's economy is headed toward collapse. The Biden administration is in a complicated position as it considers whether to release the money – and how to do it without aiding the Taliban.  Obaidullah Baheer is a lecturer at the American University of Afghanistan who is trying to bring the Taliban and its critics together to chart a future for the country. For Baheer, Afghan politics is personal – his grandfather served as prime minister of the country and is accused of committing war crimes that killed thousands of civilians. With that weight of personal history, Baheer is organizing Afghans to figure out how to resolve the conflicts at the heart of the country today.  Support Reveal's journalism at Revealnews.org/donatenow Subscribe to our weekly newsletter to get the scoop on new episodes at Revealnews.org/newsletter Connect with us onTwitter,Facebook andInstagram

    Foundations of Amateur Radio
    A code for amateurs

    Foundations of Amateur Radio

    Foundations of Amateur Radio The American Radio Relay League or ARRL is one of the oldest amateur associations on Earth. 1926 saw the birth of "the Radio Amateur's Handbook", the first edition of what we now know as "The ARRL Handbook For Radio Communications" featured chapters on what it means to be an amateur, how to build and operate a station, how propagation works and how to experiment. The very first handbook had 5000 copies printed and thanks to the website WorldRadioHistory.com we have access to a signed copy by the author himself, the Communications Manager of the ARRL, Francis Edward Handy (W1BDI). He starts the 228 page book with the following words: This Handbook is written as a guide for member-operators of the League. It is also useful as a source of information to the man who wants to take part in amateur radio activity but who has no idea of how to get started. Written first of all for the beginner, such an amount of useful and up-to-date information has been added that the Handbook in its present form is equally valuable as a compendium of information for the experienced brass-pounder and the beginner alike. The first edition doesn't show a cover price, but the third edition, published a year later shows a charge of $1. The 2022, or 99th edition has nearly six times as many pages, 1280 of them, it costs ten times as much per page and sells for nearly 50 times as much at $49.95. The current handbook features topics such as Radio electronics theory and principles, Circuit design and equipment as well as articles and projects that include 3D printing, portable battery selection, safe antenna and tower work practices and comes in a variety of formats including electronic and box sets. I'm giving this background to give you a sense of how things have evolved in the past century. For example, one thing that the very first edition didn't have was a page called the Amateur's Code. The oldest copy I've found appears in the 1927 or third edition. If you're familiar with the words, you're in for a treat. If not, sit back and imagine it's 1927, or 1923, more on that in a moment. The Amateur's Code I - The Amateur is Gentlemanly. He never knowingly uses the air for his own amusement in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others. He abides by the pledges given by the A.R.R.L. in his behalf to the public and the Government. II - The Amateur is Loyal. He owes his amateur radio to the American Radio Relay League, and he offers it his unswerving loyalty. III - The Amateur is Progressive. He keeps his station abreast of science. It is built well and efficiently. His operating practice is clean and regular. IV - The Amateur is Friendly. Slow and patient sending when requested, friendly advice and counsel to the beginner, kindly assistance and cooperation for the broadcast listener: these are marks of the amateur spirit. V - The Amateur is Balanced. Radio is his hobby. He never allows it to interfere with any of the duties he owes to his home, his job, his school or his community. VI - The Amateur is Patriotic. His knowledge and his station are always ready for the service of his country and his community. This version is credited to Paul M. Segal 9EEA, Director, Rocky Mountain Division ARRL. The code appears on page 9 of the 1927 edition of the handbook. It uses Roman numerals to identify each point, the title is beautifully rendered with the Old English Typeface and it's shown inside a rectangle on a page on its own. Over the next 45 years the text stays the same. There are changes like colons to semi-colons, an additional comma and the evolution from Roman numerals to modern numbers, and then written numbers and finally the removal of the numbers entirely. At one point the title is changed from "Amateur's Code" to "Our Code", but that only lasts for one edition. Speaking of editions, the 1936 edition, the thirteenth in the series, is referred throughout as the 1936 edition, superstition is alive and well. The credit changes over time as well. In 1929 Paul's callsign is changed from 9EEA to W9EEA. In 1943 we see a once-off credit appear. It states that the code was written in 1923 by Lieut.-Commander Paul. M. Segal, General Counsel of ARRL. It's the only credit that shows a different year from any of the other references which all point at 1928 as the original year, which is what the ARRL uses today. Interestingly, we have a copy of the handbook from 1927 that features the code, so it's entirely possible that 1923 is actually correct and it's not hard to imagine that a poorly printed 3 looks like the remains of the number 8. To add to this, there's a 1944 FCC report to the President of the United States of America that contains a reference to "Lieutenant Commander Paul. M. Segal, the radio industry attorney". In addition there's an announcement in the New York Times, dated 25 May 1968 with the headline: "Paul M. Segal Is Dead at 68; Expert in Communications Law" I don't have access to any version of the Second Edition of the handbook which had two print runs in 1927. It's entirely possible that the code appeared there, but I have no evidence either way. I do believe that Paul M. Segal, 9EEA Director of the Rocky Mountain Division of the ARRL is the same person as Lieutenant Commander Paul. M. Segal, General Counsel of ARRL and radio industry attorney who became a silent key in 1968. Credits, layout and font changes aside, 1973 sees the first time when the words of the Amateur's Code actually change. Let me illustrate. The original first clause reads: I - The Amateur is Gentlemanly. He never knowingly uses the air for his own amusement in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others. He abides by the pledges given by the A.R.R.L. in his behalf to the public and the Government. In 1973 that's changed to: One The Amateur is considerate . . .He never knowingly uses the air in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others. The first four clauses are modified to greater and lesser degree, clause five and six stay the same. Today the ARRL website shows the first clause as: The Radio Amateur is CONSIDERATE...He/[She] never knowingly operates in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others. And the credit reads: "adapted from the original Amateur's Code, written by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA, in 1928" It's noteworthy that going back to the original text the very first clause encourages the amateur to be gentlemanly, something which we can relate to in terms of being respectful, polite and civil. It's also clear that the Amateur's Code is a living document and has been moving with the times. I think that we as a community have the opportunity to participate in another review and I will investigate and share with you some of my thoughts on the matter. I think that it is important that we have a code of conduct that reflects our values and at present the best starting point we have is the Amateur's Code. I'm Onno VK6FLAB

    Warren Pies: The Era of Cheap Oil is Over

    Tom welcomes Warren Pies to the show. Warren is cofounder of 3Fourteen Research. Warren explains how they attempted to map out how bear market rally's typically behave. These rallies have to fail and head below previous lows. In our current case, that would be, 3066 on the S&P 500. They examined forty-nine historic rallies, and six of them we're larger than today. We're in fairly rare territory. Usually, when we see these types of moves, the bear market is almost over. However, the difference this time is we may be facing a recession and the Fed seems likely to raise rates further. This should give investors caution. Bond markets have been signalling for some time that inflation will be transitory. Yield curve inversions are often correlated with a coming recession. The Fed may be on the verge of making a policy mistake. Their model for determining future recessions is worsening. They use a number of factors including various credit spreads, rate of change, equity market returns, and analysis of the yield curve. Most of the yield curves are inverting, and inversions often signal a recession in 16 to 24 months. He discusses their outlook for inflation and why housing is likely to slowly burn higher. Energy and housing components are sixty percent of the CPI. Food inflation is also a factor. The high costs of refined petroleum products like gasoline is affecting consumers, but most have been fairly flush with cash. The playbook we saw with Covid could become a policy tool for managing global energy requirements. Governments may choose to balance shortfalls with energy with similar lockdowns. Russia will have a hard time transitioning from Western to Eastern buyers. This is due to a lack of infrastructure, pipelines, and shipping options. Much of the world is going to face further energy shortages. They have conducted some analysis of peak hydrocarbon usage. They believe demand will continue to grown until at least 2040. We can only electrify and expand the grid so quickly. This transition has been haphazardly organized. Bottom line, the era of cheap oil appears to be over, which will continue to pressure inflation. Warren discusses the key features of their gold model, which helps them determine good entry and exit points. He discusses why they recommend large cap Canadian oil producers. Lastly, Warren outlines where inflation will head over the short, medium, and long term. Stocks and bonds have become more correlated than many investors expect. Bonds may no longer be a safe haven, and the coming years are likely to be more difficult.

    In today's episode, I briefly go over the farcical inflation reduction act for those of you who wonder if it will, in fact, reduce inflation. The same politicians who authored it have ironically almost admitted it won't and openly made it about "climate change" without changing the name.Then I move on to a very important topic. A term coined by MJ DeMarco... The "me-bias." A toxic mindset that we can all fall into. What does it mean? Do you operate with one? Can you recognize it? Can you tamp it back and instead operate with a contribution mindset? Ironically, you operate with a contribution mindset to a larger personal benefit anyway.

Hayes states that this is because IRS targets people who make ‘minimal income' because they “can't afford to fight it and probably don't have the skills to fight it, so its very easy picking."See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    The Democrats' Inflation Reduction Act has passed the Senate and is expected to pass the House on Friday. While this package will tackle issues surrounding climate and health care, it is also set to allocate 80 billion dollars to the IRS, which would allow the agency to add an additional 87,000 employees. With the Internal Revenue Service set to expand, many are questioning what that would mean for Americans and the frequency of audits. Senior Political Correspondent at Axios Josh Kraushaar joins the podcast to break down voter anxiety toward the IRS and this bill's potential impact on the midterms. Later, CEO and President of Levy & Associates Tax Consultants Lawrence Levy joins to explain the current issues with the IRS and why he is skeptical additional funding could shift their behavior. A virus that was believed to be eradicated has resurfaced within the United States. For the first time in nine years, polio was detected in an unvaccinated man who suffered from paralysis in Rockland County, NY. While most Americans are vaccinated against polio, the coronavirus pandemic has caused a surge in vaccine hesitancy, and many are concerned that is leading to fewer children getting immunized. Dr. Walter Orenstein is the Director of Vaccine Policy and Development at Emory University and the former Director of the US Immunization Program at the CDC and he joins the Rundown to discuss the nature of the polio virus, the importance of increasing immunization levels, and how to combat vaccine hesitancy within the country.

    Highlights: 2022 Housing Report from JCHS

    Housing costs have surged over the last year or so, but a new report shows that demand is still strong due to several factors, and that pricing pressures may ease up in the months ahead. The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University just released its annual State of the Nation's Housing report, and I'd like to share some of the highlights.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Home Price AppreciationNationwide home price appreciation hit 20.6% in March of this year. That's up from 20% in August of last year. The data shows record-high appreciation in 67 of the top 100 markets, and the rest were also up by at least 9%. Harvard researchers say higher home prices are keeping about 4 million renters from buying their own homes, and that increases demand for rental housing. (1)Those who can qualify for a home often can't find one in their price range. They are also competing with investors who have increased their share of moderately-priced homes. Single-Family Investor SalesResearchers say investors have moved aggressively into the single-family rental market and account for 28% of the SFR homes sold in the first quarter of this year. That's up from 19% in the first quarter of last year. From 2017 to 2019, the average was about 17%.Investors have been focusing on markets with rapid price appreciation. In Atlanta, the investor share of home sales was 41% in the fourth quarter of last year. In San Jose, California, it was 38%. In Phoenix, 36%, and in Los Angeles, 34%.Demand & Rent GrowthAs demand rose for rentals, so did rents. The report shows they were up 12% nationally in the first quarter. Rent growth was more than 20% in several metros. The hottest markets were in the South and West, but some coastal areas saw big gains because rents had fallen so much during the pandemic. Single-family rents have gone up faster than apartments mostly due to demand. That's the result of remote workers who want more space at home. CoreLogic shows that year-over-year rents were up 15% nationally as of March. The biggest gains were in Miami at 39% and Cape Coral at 28%, but Phoenix and San Diego were also mentioned with rent growth of 18 and 17% respectively.Strong Household FormationStrong household formation is contributing to increased demand and higher housing costs. From Q1 of 2020 to Q1 of 2022, new households were forming at an annual rate of 1.6 million. Harvard researchers had predicted an increase of 1.2 million annually from 2018 through 2028, so the current rate of increase is well above the expected amount.Much of the growth is due to millennials making up for previous delays in household formation.Government stimulus during the pandemic and the economic rebound last year also gave many young adults the means to pay for housing. But researchers are also predicting a new slowdown in household formation as the money situation tightens to control inflation. New household formation has raised the homeownership rate .1% to 65.4%.Residential ConstructionThe pace of residential construction is finally picking up. It has been trailing behind household growth for many years, but in 2021, single-family starts hit 1.1 million. That's the first time it's been above 1 million in 13 years. Multifamily starts are also up. They hit 470,000 which is a 30-year high.The big issue for builders has been all the supply chain disruptions. In April of this year, 1.64 million homes were under construction with delayed completion dates due to the supply chain hold-ups. The labor shortage and local land use regulations have also made it difficult for builders. Affordability Crisis & OutlookThe affordability crisis has continued to get worse for both homeowners and renters. In 2020, 30% of households were cost-burdened, meaning they were paying more than 30% of their income on housing. 14% were severely burdened. The figures are worse for renters. 46% were hard-pressed to pay their rent, and 24% were severely burdened. And now, inflation is making things worse.Although low-income families will continue to struggle with housing costs in the near term, the report says the outlook for overall housing demand is mostly positive. A lot depends on whether the Federal Reserve can control inflation, but Harvard researchers say that demographic shifts are favorable, unemployment is low, and wage growth is strong – which all contribute to a positive outlook.You'll find a link to the full report in the show notes for this episode at newsforinvestors.com.Please remember to hit the subscribe button, and leave a review!Thanks for listening.

    Hour 1 -  Nick Reed is live at Scramblers Diner for the Friday Road Show. Here's what he covers this hour: The Washington Post indicates that classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in the raid of former President Donald Trump's home. Nick shares a story from June of 2018 that many key records were missing from the National Archives. The accumulation of congressional testimony made it clear that the Obama administration engaged in the wholesale destruction and “loss” of tens of thousands of government records covered under the act as well as the intentional evasion of the government records recording system by engaging in private email exchanges. So far, former President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Lynch and several EPA officials have been named as offenders. The IRS suffered record “losses” as well. Conspiracy of a conspiracy. The Springfield News-Leader has a new piece titled "MU researcher delves into QAnon, including followers' reaction to FBI search of Trump's house." Why is it always the left talking about QAnon? Actress Anne Heche will reportedly be taken off life support and is not expected to survive the injuries she sustained in a horrific car crash in Los Angeles last Friday that left her with severe burns.
