Welcome to the "Producer's Corner" where you'll find news and notes from Morning Show Producer Scott Fitzgerald.
It’s a new year and a popular resolution for many is to improve their financial situation. “Now is a great time to take stock of your financial well-being” says Navy Federal Credit Union President and CEO Cutler Dawson. For three years now I’ve been endorsing Navy Federal Credit Union. I put my name behind Navy Federal because I’ve been a member for 15 years.
For nearly 80 years Navy Federal has been serving the military with programs and services tailored to the military lifestyle and not offered to those outside the armed forces. Some of those services include (but aren’t limited to) outstanding free checking accounts and interest rates on auto loans and mortgages. Last year we were a pre-approved for a 2.99% auto loan for our new SUV.
2013 is a good time to map out a smart money strategy that doesn’t involve unnecessary fees and expenses other banks charge their members. For example Navy Federal’s active duty checking account is free and members can earn dividends as well as receive up to $20 in free ATM rebates each month. I don’t know about you, but if I found a $20 bill on the ground at the end of each month, I sure wouldn’t pass it up.
If you (or a family member) is currently serving in the military (even you DoD Contractors) I encourage you to visit navyfederal.org and see for yourself.
Navy Federal is financially solid and federally insured by the NCUA.
President Obama’s re-election, petitions to withdraw “peacefully” from the United States in order to form independent governments to have filed on the White House website. Petitions to secede are filled for almost half that states of the nation, while overall, over half-a-million signatures were collected that cover all 50 states. While some may describe this as an overreaction, the White House does have to take the requests seriously because any petition that receives 25,000 online signatures on their website needs to be reviewed and a reply needs to be given within 30 days of the posting. With Tony is publisher of the Trends Journal, which also predicts social and economic events Gerald Celente
Israel carried out a blistering offensive of more than 50 airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, assassinating Hamas' military commander in the most intense attack on the territory in nearly four years. Israel said the airstrikes, launched in response to days of rocket fire out of Hamas-ruled Gaza, were the beginning of a broader operation against Islamic militants. CBS News' Robert Berger is in Jerusalem and chats with Tony.
Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) has become leader of China, securing the Communist Party's top spot as the country faces slower economic growth and rising public demands for change. The state Xinhua (shin-wah) News Agency on Thursday confirmed Xi's elevation to party general secretary. Xi also was appointed head of the commission that oversees the military. The selection of Xi follows a pivotal party congress that underlined the communists' determination to remain firmly in power. Reporter Ruth Morris is in Beijing and talks with Tony about the new Chinese leadership and how they see the west, specifically President Obama's second term.
President Obama on Wednesday pushed for his proposal to have the wealthy pay more in taxes as a way to tame the federal deficit, taking a hard line in his opening bid before he begins fiscal talks with U.S. lawmakers later in the week. “We should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy,” Obama said in his first press conference since winning re-election on November 6. Is the President taking the right tone when it comes to the deficit? Or will this stance make it tougher for him to work with lawmakers on this issue? Politico Reporter Kevin Cirilli joins Tony this morning.
