intrusive passing of the tax provision of Obama’s healthcare plan. This has created a fissure in the Constitution, a horrible outcome that opens a door to the government violating our civil liberties. Jonathan breaks down the consequences of the violations, such as our liberty to choose and right to privacy in the interest of a government mandate that only benefits the government. Moving on to TSA, Jonathan divulges the massive problems with this act.

“The TSA is an institution that is riddled with corruption and riddled with abuse,” he explains. The elderly, pregnant women, infants and disabled individuals with no record of criminal activity are being subjected to humiliating and highly intrusive searches all over the U.S. Jonathan defines the difference in tactics from a defensive position versus an offensive position, with the latter producing far better results.

He advocates training the citizenry to be more aware of suspicious behavior and to better defend themselves.  Jonathan gives an update on the work against the FDA and the First Amendment.

Jonathan W. Emord is one of the nation’s leading free speech attorneys. He has defeated the Food and Drug Administration a remarkable eight times in federal court, more times than any other attorney in American history, earning him the title, “FDA Dragon Slayer.” He is the 2007 recipient of the Cancer Control Society’s Humanitarian Award for “winning and preserving our great civil rights to life, to liberty, and to health freedoms.” He is the only non-scientist ever appointed to the Certification Board for Nutrition Specialists and serves as that organization’s Vice Chair.

In 2010, he became the first person awarded the title “Honorary Nutrition Specialist” by the CBNS. Congressman Ron Paul says “[a]ll freedom-loving Americans are in debt to Jonathan Emord for his courtroom [victories]” and calls him a “hero of the health freedom revolution.” Formerly an attorney in the Reagan Administration’s Federal Communications Commission, Emord has practiced constitutional and administrative law in Washington, D.C. for the past twenty-five years. He has been a Guest Lecturer, Georgetown University, Department of Biochemistry, Course in Nutrition.

He is on the Review Board of the Journal of Food Product Marketing and International Journal of Food & Agribusiness Marketing. He is routinely consulted by industry, Congress, and the media on regulatory issues that affect health freedom. He is the author of four critically acclaimed books: Freedom, Technology and the First Amendment (1991); The Ultimate Price (2007); The Rise of Tyranny (2008); Global Censorship of Health Information (2010); and Restore the Republic (2012). Mr. Emord is the American Justice columnist for USA Today Magazine.

If you’re still allowing property managers to bill you max amounts every month you need to tighten up your monthly discretionary allowance. You will be consulted every time a repair is projected beyond $200. Also, minimize the unprofitable downtime of renters moving in and moving out by signing a 2-year lease with your next tenant. Include the rent increase for upcoming year so your tenants are prepared to pay in advance of the increase. They will appreciate it.

 

And in our interview, wouldn’t it be nice to see an interesting property on the internet and send someone else halfway across the U.S. to take photos of it for you? What about checking up on one of your existing properties to inspect the hail damage first hand? WeGoLook has an army of 20,000 “lookers” who can send you photos, videos or answer specific questions. They are even able to visit the local municipality to perform a title search.

On this show, Jason Hartman talks with one of his investment counselors about current events, welcomes a guest caller and also brings to our listening audience the economic outlook from renowned financial expert, John Mauldin.  Mauldin discusses “spending rearrangement”, a restructuring of our country’s spending problem and tax code, and how the election outcome influences the direction of that restructuring. The larger the government becomes, the smaller the private sector becomes – not an ideal situation for economic recovery in the U.S. Mauldin gives his insights and the possible scenarios and outcomes that could happen, depending on whether or not the deficit problem is truly solved, touching on investments, job creation, tax issues and trade deficits.

John Mauldin is also a New York Times best-selling author and a pioneering online commentator. Each week, over one million readers turn to Mauldin for his penetrating view on Wall Street, global markets and economic history. Mauldin’s weekly e-newsletter, Thoughts from the Frontline, was one of the first publications to provide investors with free, unbiased information and guidance.  Today, it is the most widely distributed investment newsletter in the world.

Mauldin is a frequent contributor to publications including The Financial Times and The Daily Reckoning, as well as a regular guest on CNBC, Yahoo Tech Ticker, and Bloomberg TV. His best-selling books include Bull’s Eye Investing, Just One Thing and Endgame, as well as his recently released update to Bull’s Eye Investing – The Little Book of Bull’s Eye Investing.
