How Do Average Joes Protect Their Assets in a Financial Crash?

In today's financial market, where's the best place for your money? Should you buy a house? What about investing in the stock market?

Danielle DiMartino Booth, former insider at the Federal Resserve and author of the book Fed Up: An Insider's Take on Why the Federal Reserve is Bad for America, joined Glenn in studio to help navigate the tricky waters of protecting your assets.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

PAT: So, Danielle, how does the average American prepare for something like that? How do we --

DANIELLE: I would rather be early than wrong. I would rather have my powder be dry.

GLENN: Would you buy a house today?

DANIELLE: It really would depend at what level. I bring the private equity kingpins back. They've been allowed to run rampant through our neighbors in America, buy up all of these foreclosures, and they've crowded out your natural first time home buyer. So home prices have been run right back up.

GLENN: In the evening place like Texas where it's nothing but growth, growth, growth, growth for Texas.

DANIELLE: Well, we've grown, grown, grown, grown, that's true. But now our residential real estate prices have played a nice little game of catch up.

PAT: Would you take your money out of the bank while you still can?

DANIELLE: I don't think we're there.

GLENN: We're headed on that.

PAT: I would take my money out of the casino. Yes.

GLENN: Meaning the stock market.

DANIELLE: Yes.

PAT: Uh-huh.

DANIELLE: And the bond market. People do not understand how overvalued stocks and bonds are much more overvalued.

GLENN: Where do you put it? Just in a bank?

DANIELLE: You keep talking about safes. But there are very decent places that you can put your cash and get a little bit of return and try to hang steady with inflation.

GLENN: Is there anything to say for -- like I do banking with a local bank who doesn't sell my mortgage, they hold it, you know. I went to the local mom and pop.

DANIELLE: A traditional bank.

GLENN: Correct. Or what kind of loans do you make? And they're very, very rigid. Do you look at that? Or a credit union as a place that you can trust more than -- like Citi or any of these bigger groups?

DANIELLE: I think the world as we know it will end if one of these gigantic banks go away. Do you really see one of these lobbyists standing still for that?

GLENN: No.

DANIELLE: I'm just asking.

[Laughter]

GLENN: Yeah, no, I don't. So one more thought.

It used to be that people like Warren Buffett were the heroes. And people like Warren Buffett, he -- I mean, he's still living in the same house. He's still married to the same woman. He's still, you know -- yes, he has a Boeing business jet, but he is -- he could easily be --

PAT: Drives an old truck, all of those kinds of things, supposedly.

GLENN: He could be mistaken for a middle class guy, if you didn't know it was Warren Buffett. Same guy with Walton.

PAT: Sam Walton.

GLENN: That's a different era. Now, everyone wants to live like the Kardashians.

DANIELLE: Flash is the new black. Glenn, you have to flaunt it. Wear it.

GLENN: So everybody is up there and everybody think so they deserve that lifestyle.

DANIELLE: That's what being entitled is all about.

The Journalist Who Schooled Brian Stelter on Woke Media | Batya Ungar-Sargon | Ep 125

Wokeness has taken over the American Left — or at least the elite — and the corporate media is leading the charge. But the Left's "Great Awokening" is actually fueling a great awakening of average liberals, this week's guest included. Newsweek deputy opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon joins Glenn after taking CNN's Brian Stelter to school about wokeness — on HIS OWN show. She reviews the biggest takeaways from her new book, "Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy," including how journalists have abandoned the working class, how she overcame Trump Derangement Syndrome, why the Left hates conservative media, and why there's much more that unites us than divides us.

Did Jan. 6 & Ray Epps Expose a Corrupt FBI? | Darren Beattie | Ep 124

The events of January 6 have had constant attention from the mainstream media, yet so much about that day remains cloaked in mystery. So much just doesn't add up. It doesn't feel right. Darren Beattie wrote an article for www.Revolver.News titled "Meet Ray Epps: The Fed-Protected Provocateur Who Appears to Have Led the Very First 1/6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol," which dives into some of the unexplainable issues surrounding that day. Who is Ray Epps? What was his role in the riot? Is it a coincidence that 1/6 is so eerily similar to the events involving Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer? How much did the feds know about the events? Did they know about the riot in advance and do nothing? Or, a more terrifying possibility, did they play a role in the riot? The more you poke around, the more it makes your head spin. Merrick Garland, the Oathkeepers, the FBI. Beattie wants to know all the answers. And Glenn wants to know, how did Beattie, a Duke professor, become the only non-tenured professor in the country to publicly support Trump ahead of the 2016 election, only to try his hand at uncovering what could be the biggest corruption story of our time?
