Glenn interviews candidate Doug Hoffman

GLENN: From high above Times Square, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. We have Doug Hoffman. Doug Hoffman is a conservative candidate running for special election for New York's 23rd congressional district seat special election. Here's the recent poll: Democrat, 33, Republican 29. Conservative 23. And he's hacking off the GOP. Here's the interesting part of this. SEIU has endorsed the Democrat. ACORN and Newt Gingrich have endorsed the Republican who is pro card check and pro stimulus package. Huh.

PAT: Newt Gingrich?

GLENN: Newt Gingrich. Newt Gingrich.

PAT: That's disappointing.

GLENN: I have to tell you you are going to start running into this game. And God bless Newt Gingrich. I mean, I like Newt Gingrich. I think he is a brilliant strategist, et cetera, et cetera, but you are going to go into the old thinking here and that is if you don't if you start splitting up the eggs, you are going to have somebody else, you know, that has you know, that gets the bacon. So knock it off. Don't even think it through.

PAT: We're splitting up the eggs

GLENN: Get the bacon. I don't know what it means. So Doug Hoffman is on the phone with me now, and I don't know anything about Doug. I don't want to imply that this is an endorsement because I don't know him yet. But I thought we would get to know him because this is a this really is the moment that if the Republicans can get an ACORN endorsed Republican to run against the SEIU endorsed Democrat, and you actually fight about that like, oh, well, there's a good choice, then nothing's been learned. Nothing's been learned.

Let's go to Doug Hoffman. Doug.

HOFFMAN: Good morning, Glenn. It's a pleasure to be on your show this morning.

GLENN: Got to ask you some simple questions and I apologize to do this but we have very little time together and, you know, people are going to have to make a decision.

HOFFMAN: Sure.

GLENN: Have you ever slept with any interns?

HOFFMAN: No.

GLENN: No?

HOFFMAN: No, I haven't.

GLENN: Have you ever been arrested?

HOFFMAN: No.

GLENN: You smoke dope?

HOFFMAN: No.

GLENN: What else? Have you ever embezzled?

HOFFMAN: No.

GLENN: Are you just an attorney?

HOFFMAN: No.

PAT: Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?

HOFFMAN: Absolutely not.

GLENN: Do you believe in the free market system?

HOFFMAN: Absolutely do.

PAT: Are you a fan of Chairman Mao?

HOFFMAN: No.

PAT: All right. Is he your favorite he is not your favorite political philosopher?

HOFFMAN: Absolutely no.

GLENN: What do you think you would do if Van Jones, you found him in your administration?

HOFFMAN: I would fire him immediately.

GLENN: In the middle of a night, on a Sunday, holiday weekend?

HOFFMAN: Publicly.

GLENN: Publicly? Okay, good. All right. So Doug, have you ever run before, for anything?

HOFFMAN: Absolutely not. I have never wanted to be a politician, and I never had the desire until recently. But I do believe that our founding fathers envisioned that normal people would go to Washington to represent us, and I think it's time for people like you and me to stand up and do something about it.

GLENN: Okay, not me. Now, you can stand up.

HOFFMAN: You don't want to do it?

GLENN: Ron, I think people will lose their soul. I really do. You've got to get out. You have to make a promise to yourself. You have to have respect for what you're entangled with. You know what I mean? You are going to go if you go to Washington, you are going to be I think with damn near if not the actual powers of darkness, and you have to know that you are human and that you are not invincible, and the day you start to say, hey, you know what, I think I'm important, is the day you begin your soul begins to die.

HOFFMAN: Right. That's what happens to them. But I think I can go and represent the people and be one of the people, and I believe this is a defining moment for the party. As a lifelong Republican it's time for me and everybody else to reclaim the soul of the Republican Party.

GLENN: So you didn't leave the Republican Party; they left you?

HOFFMAN: Absolutely. Especially in the candidate that they picked.

GLENN: Tell me about the other candidate and then tell me about you.

HOFFMAN: Okay. The candidate that they picked is an assemblywoman in the Albany legislature. She's been in it for 10 years, 11 years. She's a career politician obviously, and the conservative party in New York State which, by the way, is a very strong party, and candidates can win on that line, ranks all the New York State legislators and out of a possible score of 100, this lady received 15. And 46 Democrats had a better conservative rating than she did. She's endorsed by the Working Families Party, which is related to ACORN.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. It's an absolute socialist nightmare.

HOFFMAN: And one of her biggest supporters during this campaign is the Daily Kos.

GLENN: Oh, you've got to be kidding.

HOFFMAN: Absolutely. So

GLENN: Wait a minute. I may vote for the Democrat. If those are my two choices, tell me about the Democrat.

HOFFMAN: Well, the Democrat is probably more conservative than she is, but unfortunately the Democrat is heavily supported by the National Democratic Party to the tunes of millions of dollars in advertising, and he's going to be a Pelosi puppet by the time he gets to Washington.

GLENN: Okay. So Doug, Democrat is pulling at 33%, Republican 29, and you're at 23. The GOP is very upset with you, right?

HOFFMAN: Well, they were originally. The GOP leaders are upset with me, but the Republicans around the district are thanking me for stepping up to the plate and giving them a choice in this election of a real common sense conservative Reagan Republican.

GLENN: Give me some of the common sense. What are the problems and then your solutions?

HOFFMAN: All right. Well, basically my platform is for less government regulations and red tape, less spending, less taxes and basically getting our freedoms back that are being taken away one by one by the legislation that we've been we see passing lately.

GLENN: What would you do with healthcare?

HOFFMAN: Healthcare, I would not vote for any of the bills that have been coming through or any of the changes to it because of the amount of money that it's going to cost us. What I would do with it first before I passed legislation is to go after tort reform, number one. Number two is competition between states of the insurance companies. There's over 1300 insurance companies providing insurance.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Hold on. Pat.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Are you thinking about leaving Jackie F. For him? Because I'm thinking about leaving Tania right now for him. I mean, he is talking about competition between insurance companies with different states.

PAT: He hasn't fed me steak yet.

GLENN: He hasn't fed me steak, but I'm still thinking about

PAT: I'm not quite there but I'm getting closer.

GLENN: Let him keep talking. Go ahead. Give me another drink.

HOFFMAN: Okay. And basically if there's $120 billion of waste and fraud in the Medicare and Medicaid system, let's find it before we spend it. We're not going to spend it before we find it. Show me.

STU: That's a great point because that is something that is consistently thrown around. If you save $120 billion, do that first. Prove it and then maybe we'll think about giving it to you back.

HOFFMAN: Exactly.

PAT: What about cap and trade? How do you feel about that?

HOFFMAN: Cap and trade I'm totally opposed to it. More government regulations, more red tape, more hidden fees and penalties which are really taxes.

GLENN: Do you need another drink? Do you need another drink? I mean, does he need to take you

PAT: Maybe one more.

GLENN: Give one more, give him another gin and tonic here and Ingle be yours for the night.

PAT: Comprehensive immigration reform. How do you feel about comprehensive immigration reform? Because family values don't stop at the Rio Grande.

HOFFMAN: Exactly, exactly.

PAT: Where do you stand on amnesty?

HOFFMAN: I do not believe on giving amnesty. I do believe, again, in giving better easier regulations and red tape to make workers that want to come into this country, giving them green cards easier so that we know they're in here legally and we know that they go out when they're

PAT: You know what? That's the discussion we should be having.

GLENN: Okay. Now hang on just a second. So you want to make it easier for immigrants to come here through the front door, which I'm totally behind.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: Well, Doug, how are you ever going to get everybody who's already here out?

HOFFMAN: Well, that, I don't have an instant solution for but we certainly have to find a way that we don't have people sneaking across our borders.

GLENN: Okay, I got one for you.

HOFFMAN: Coming in.

GLENN: Got one for you. Doug, let me help you out. I'm going to give you a drink. I'm buying a cocktail for you.

HOFFMAN: There it is.

GLENN: Well, they seem to find their way here. I'm guessing they will be able to find themselves going the other direction. It's just reverse the map. However, we need an incentive for doing that and that is why we're going after all of the companies that are hiring these people. They came here for jobs. If the jobs dry up, they will go home. And those jobs are currently being needed by Americans who are here and we know that pay taxes. So let's go after the giant corporations who are living on the 21st century version of the slave trade, huh? Huh?

HOFFMAN: Okay.

GLENN: Now how much do you want to

HOFFMAN: That's a good drink.

PAT: How about these three words: Enforce the law.

HOFFMAN: Absolutely. That will work.

GLENN: That's good. That's good. There you go.

PAT: They self support. And it's worked in every, virtually every city that's tried that.

HOFFMAN: Right. But one thing I was trying to get across, Glenn, is that we need to make it easy for skilled professionals and doctors and scientists and engineers that can come in here and help us out and then go home after they've done the job, we need to make it easier for them to come in.

GLENN: Absolutely. Look, before all of this was in the news, what's his name, gates, Bill Gates was saying Microsoft is going to fall behind because we can't get the green cards, we can't get the Visas for it to come in and work. We're losing all of these big brains that have always gone to colleges here and then wanted to stay here because of the opportunity. And we can't keep them here anymore and our government has been saying, well, we need to send them home, we need 0 send. What? Let's keep the best and the brightest here.

HOFFMAN: That's what I'm saying, that's absolutely what I'm saying is America's the melting pot and we need to get highly skilled people that can help us out to stay here.

STU: Isn't the biggest thing you have to cross here, the biggest line, though, is to convince people in your district that it's not a wasted vote to vote for you?

HOFFMAN: That's true. But I think we crossed that line about a week ago. The polls that you were quoting shows that my numbers are going up and her numbers are dropping like a rock.

GLENN: All you have to do is just say she is endorsed by ACORN and the Working Family Party. I think that's all you have to do.

HOFFMAN: Right.

GLENN: Hey, what are you going to do about nuclear proliferation? "My opponent was endorsed by ACORN and she's a Republican."

HOFFMAN: Right. Well, that certainly helped a lot.

GLENN: Yeah.

HOFFMAN: The recent ACORN problems.

GLENN: Yeah.

HOFFMAN: But you have to understand that this is not a typical two way race. We can win this, and historical precedent shows that a conservative candidate running against two liberals can win. And probably the best example of that was Senator Buckley. And also you have to understand that this is a rural conservative district and that that it has an army base in here. I'm an army veteran. The 10th Mountain Division is stationed here. That's one of the highest deployed units to Afghanistan and Iraq, and I am the only candidate that really matches the ideals and values of the voters of the 23rd district.

GLENN: Why do you do for a living now?

HOFFMAN: I'm a CPA and I'm a small business owner and

GLENN: Have you thought about just living off the government dole? At any time have you just thought, I'm just going to live, sponge off the government and take money from other people?

HOFFMAN: Well, I tell you I started out as the poorest kid in my community, and I always, I was taught that hard work and the American dream is possible, and I've lived the American dream. And no, I never thought of living off the government.

GLENN: All right. Now, let me ask you this, because this is what Katie Couric will ask you. You've said in the past on hate shows like Glenn Beck that you were the poorest in your community. Well, we looked into your community. It was Greenwich, Connecticut.

HOFFMAN: Well, Sernack lake, New York is not Greenwich, Connecticut. And the economy up here is probably one of the most difficult economies to survive in in the nation. And, you know, furthermore, we this community was basically high unemployment and low opportunities in the 1980s when the Olympics came back to Lake Placid and I came back here as a young accountant and became the corporate controller, and I started working for the Olympic committee when they only had 12 people and we put on one of the most successful Olympics, and I was the CFO of the Olympics. At 27 I handled a budget of $150 million, and we put on one of the best Olympics we ever saw. We created the foundation for the Miracle in Lake Placid when the U.S. hockey team beat Russia. And that's the type of people we are around here.

GLENN: All right. So

HOFFMAN: We don't sit back. We work hard.

GLENN: Are you a man of faith?

HOFFMAN: Yes, I am.

GLENN: Can you look at your wife you have a wife and children?

HOFFMAN: I have a wife of 36 years. I have three grown children and four grandchildren. And by the way, I'm a member of the 9/12 group.

GLENN: God bless you. Is there anything and you don't have to answer this. Just ask yourself this. Is there anything that you're afraid of?

HOFFMAN: I'm afraid of the liberals ruining our country, afraid of them spending money we don't have, and I'm afraid of the resulting taxes that are going to come about.

GLENN: Is there anything that you are personally afraid of?

HOFFMAN: Personally afraid of?

GLENN: Yeah.

HOFFMAN: Uh...

GLENN: You don't have to answer that. The reason why I ask you that question is because you are going to face it. If you actually get in there and you actually are trying to make a difference and you are going to face it now. If you actually start to rise above these people in the polls, they will bring whatever it is you are most afraid of to play in your life. You just have to know at this point if you can conquer that.

HOFFMAN: I know I can conquer it. As I said, at age 27 I conquered the Olympics, and I had a tiger by the tail then, and I can take the tiger now.

GLENN: Okay. Doug Hoffman is his name. Doug Hoffman for congress. Are you how is your fundraising going?

HOFFMAN: Well, that's we're certainly not getting the money that the Republicans and the Democrats are pumping in this area, but we're getting money from all around the country.

GLENN: Isn't the, one of the things that was happening here in Washington in New York City yesterday with the president where he did that $30,000 or $15,000 a plate dinner, wasn't that to raise against you?

HOFFMAN: Isn't that amazing? Little old me. The president has to come in and try to beat me.

PAT: So what's how do people contribute if they

HOFFMAN: Well, they can go to DougHoffmanforcongress.com and with your help we can win this.

GLENN: All right. I tell you what, Doug, I'm going to have you on tomorrow. I'll have you on the television show tomorrow and introduce you to people. But not because I necessarily support Doug. He seems like a nice guy. But that's for you to decide. But you'll see tomorrow night on the TV show.

Rapper Kendrick Lamar brings white fan onstage to sing with him, but here’s the catch

Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images for American Express

Rapper Kendrick Lamar asked a fan to come onstage and sing with him, only to condemn her when she failed to censor all of the song's frequent mentions of the “n-word" while singing along.

RELATED: You'll Never Guess Who Wrote the Racist Message Targeting Black Air Force Cadets

“I am so sorry," she apologized when Lamar pointed out that she needed to “bleep" that word. “I'm used to singing it like you wrote it." She was booed at by the crowd of people, many screaming “f*** you" after her mistake.

On Tuesday's show, Pat and Jeffy watched the clip and talked about some of the Twitter reactions.

“This is ridiculous," Pat said. “The situation with this word has become so ludicrous."

What happened?

MSNBC's Katy Tur didn't bother to hide her pro-gun control bias in an interview with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in the wake of the Santa Fe High School killings.

RELATED: Media Are Pushing Inflated '18 School Shootings' Statistic. Here Are the Facts.

What did she ask?

As Pat pointed out while sitting in for Glenn on today's show, Tur tried to “badger" Paxton into vowing that he would push for a magical fix that will make schools “100 percent safe." She found it “just wild" that the Texas attorney general couldn't promise that schools will ever be completely, totally safe.

“Can you promise kids in Texas today that they're safe to go to school?" Tur pressured Paxton.

“I don't think there's any way to say that we're ever 100 percent safe," the attorney general responded.

What solutions did the AG offer?

“We've got a long way to go," Paxton said. He listed potential solutions to improve school safety, including installing security officers and training administrators and teachers to carry a gun.

Pat's take:

“Unbelievable," Pat said on today's show. “Nobody can promise [100 percent safety]."

Every president from George Washington to Donald Trump has issued at least one executive order (with the exception of William Harrison who died just 31 days into his presidency) and yet the U.S. Constitution doesn't even mention executive orders. So how did the use of this legislative loophole become such an accepted part of the job? Well, we can thank Franklin Roosevelt for that.

Back at the chalkboard, Glenn Beck broke down the progression of the executive order over the years and discussed which US Presidents have been the “worst offenders."

RELATED: POWER GRAB: Here's how US presidents use 'moments of crisis' to override Constitutional law

“It's hard to judge our worst presidential overreachers on sheer numbers alone," said Glenn. “However, it's not a shock that FDR issued by far the most of any president."

Our first 15 presidents issued a combined total of 143. By comparison, Franklin D. Roosevelt issued 3721, more than twice the next runner up, Woodrow Wilson, at 1803.

“Next to FDR, no other president in our history attempted to reshape so much of American life by decree, until we get to this guy: President Obama," Glenn explained. “He didn't issue 3000, or even 1800; he did 276 executive orders, but it was the power of those orders. He instituted 560 major regulations classified by the Congressional Budget Office as having 'significant economic or social impacts.' That's 50 percent more regulations than George W. Bush's presidency — and remember, everybody thought he was a fascist."

President Obama blamed an obstructionist Congress for forcing him to bypass the legislative process. By executive order, President Obama decreed the U.S. join the Paris Climate Accord, DACA, the Clean Power Plan and transgender restrooms. He also authorized spying in US citizens through section 702 of FISA, used the IRS to target political opponents and ordered military action in Libya without Congressional permission.

All of these changes were accepted by the very people who now condemn President Trump for his use of executive orders — many of which were issued to annul President Obama's executive orders, just as President Obama annulled President Bush's executive orders when he took office … and therein lies the rub with executive orders.

“That's not the way it's supposed to work, nor would we ever want it to be," said Glenn. “We have to have the Constitution and laws need to originate in Congress."

Six months ago, I alerted readers to the very attractive benefits that the TreasuryDirect program offers to investors who are defensively sitting on cash right now.

Since then, those benefits have continued to improve. Substantially.

Back in November, by holding extremely conservative short-term (i.e., 6-months or less) Treasury bills, TreasuryDirect participants were receiving over 16x more in interest payments vs keeping their cash in a standard bank savings account.

Today, they're now receiving over 30 times more. Without having to worry about the risk of a bank "bail-in" or failure.

So if you're holding cash right now and NOT participating in the TreasuryDirect program, do yourself a favor and read on. If you're going to pass on this opportunity, at least make it an 'eyes-wide-open' decision.

Holding Cash (In Treasurys) Now Beats The Market

There are many prudent reasons to hold cash in today's dangerously overvalued financial markets, as we've frequently touted here at PeakProsperity.com.

Well, there's now one more good reason to add to the list: holding cash in short-term Treasurys is now meeting/beating the dividend returns offered by the stock market:

"Cash Is King" Again - 3-Month Bills Yield More Than Stocks (Zero Hedge)
'Reaching for yield' just got a lot easier...
For the first time since February 2008, three-month Treasury bills now have a yield advantage over the S&P; 500 dividend yield (and dramatically lower risk).
Investors can earn a guaranteed 1.90% by holding the 3-month bills or a risky 1.89% holding the S&P; 500...

The longest period of financial repression in history is coming to an end...

And it would appear TINA is dead as there is now an alternative.

And when you look at the total return (dividends + appreciation) of the market since the start of 2018, stocks have returned only marginally better than 3-month Treasurys. Plus, those scant few extra S&P; points have come with a LOT more risk.

Why take it under such dangerously overvalued conditions?

If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em

In my June report Less Than Zero: How The Fed Killed Saving, I explained how the Federal Reserve's policy of holding interest rates at record lows has decimated savers. Those who simply want to park money somewhere "safe" can't do so without losing money in real terms.

To drive this point home: back in November, the average interest rate being offered in a US bank savings account was an insutling 0.06%. Six months later, nothing has changed:

(Source

That's virtually the same as getting paid 0%. But it's actually worse than that, because once you take inflation into account, the real return on your savings is markedly negative.

And to really get your blood boiling, note that the Federal Reserve has rasied the federal funds rate it pays banks from 1.16% in November to 1.69% in April. Banks are now making nearly 50% more money on the excess reserves they park at the Fed -- but are they passing any of that free profit along to their depositors? No....

This is why knowing about the TreasuryDirect program is so important. It's a way for individual investors savvy enough to understand the game being played to bend some of its rules to their favor and limit the damage they suffer.

Below is an updated version (using today's rates) of my recap of TreasuryDirect, which enables you to get over 30x more interest on your cash savings than your bank will pay you, with lower risk.

TreasuryDirect

For those not already familiar with it, TreasuryDirect is a service offered by the United States Department of the Treasury that allows individual investors to purchase Treasury securities such as T-Bills, notes and bonds directly from the U.S. government.

You purchase these Treasury securities by linking a TreasuryDirect account to your personal bank account. Once linked, you use your cash savings to purchase T-bills, etc from the US Treasury. When the Treasury securities you've purchased mature or are sold, the proceeds are deposited back into your bank account.

So why buy Treasuries rather than keep your cash savings in a bank? Two main reasons:

  • Much higher return: T-Bills are currently offering an annualized return rate between 1.66-2.04%. Notes and bonds, depending on their duration, are currently offering between 2.6% - 3.1%
  • Extremely low risk: Your bank can change the interest rate on your savings account at any time -- with Treasury bills, your rate of return is locked in at purchase. Funds in a bank are subject to risks such as a bank bail-in or the insolvency of the FDIC depositor protection program -- while at TreasuryDirect, your funds are being held with the US Treasury, the institution with the lowest default risk in the country for reasons I'll explain more in a moment.

Let's look at a quick example. If you parked $100,000 in the average bank savings account for a full year, you would earn $60 in interest. Let's compare this to the current lowest-yielding TreasuryDirect option: continuously rolling that same $100,000 into 4-week T-Bills for a year:

  1. Day 1: Funds are transferred from your bank account to TreasuryDirect to purchase $100,000 face value of 4-week T-Bills at auction yielding 1.68%
  2. Day 28: the T-Bills mature and the Treasury holds the full $100,000 proceeds in your TreasuryDirect account. Since you've set up the auto-reinvestment option, TreasuryDirect then purchases another $100,000 face value of 4-week T-Bills at the next auction.
  3. Days 29-364: the process repeats every 4 weeks
  4. Day 365: assuming the average yield for T-Bills remained at 1.68%, you will have received $1,680 in interest in total throughout the year from the US Treasury.

$1,680 vs $60. That's a 27x difference in return.

And the comparison only improves if you decide to purchase longer duration (13-week or 26-week) bills instead of the 4-week ones:

Repeating the above example for a year using 13-week bills would yield $1,925. Using 26-week bills would yield $2,085. A lot better (34x better!) than $60.

Opportunity Cost & Default Risk

So what are the downsides to using TreasuryDirect? There aren't many.

The biggest one is opportunity cost. While your money is being held in a T-Bill, it's tied up at the US Treasury. If you suddenly need access to those funds, you have to wait until the bill matures.

But T-Bill durations are short. 4 weeks is not a lot of time to have to wait. (If you think the probability is high you may to need to pull money out of savings sooner than that, you shouldn't be considering the TreasuryDirect program.)

Other than that, TreasuryDirect offers an appealing reduction in risk.

If your bank suddenly closes due to a failure, any funds invested in TreasuryDirect are not in your bank account, so are not subject to being confiscated in a bail-in.

Instead, your money is held as a T-Bill, note or bond, which is essentially an obligation of the US Treasury to pay you in full for the face amount. The US Treasury is the single last entity in the country (and quite possibly, the world) that will ever default on its obligations. Why? Because Treasurys are the mechanism by which money is created in the US. Chapter 8 from The Crash Course explains:

As a result, to preserve its ability to print the money it needs to function, the US government will bring its full force and backing to bear in order to ensure confidence in the market for Treasurys.

Meaning: the US government won't squelch on paying you back the money you lent it. If required, it will just print the money it needs to repay you.

So, How To Get Started?

Usage of TreasuryDirect is quite low among investors today. Many are unaware of the program. Others simply haven't tried it out.

And let's be real: it's crazy that we live in a world where a 1.68-2.09% return now qualifies as an exceptionally high yield on savings. A lot of folks just can't get motivated to take action by rates that low. But that doesn't mean that they shouldn't -- money left on the table is money forfeited.

So, if you're interested in learning more about the TreasuryDirect program, start by visiting their website. Like everything operated by the government, it's pretty 'no frills'; but their FAQ page addresses investors' most common questions.

Before you decide whether or not to fund an account there, be sure to discuss the decision with your professional financial advisor to make sure it fits well with your personal financial situation and goals. (If you're having difficulty finding a good one, consider scheduling a free discussion with PeakProsperity.com's endorsed financial advisor -- who has considerable experience managing TreasuryDirect purchases for many of its clients).

In Part 2: A Primer On How To Use TreasuryDirect, we lay out the step-by-step process for opening, funding and transacting within a TreasuryDirect account. We've created it to be a helpful resource for those self-directed individuals potentially interested in increasing their return on their cash savings in this manner.

Yes, we savers are getting completely abused by our government's policies. So there's some poetic justice in using the government's own financing instruments to slightly lessen the sting of the whip.
