3:02 am
make your guaranteed reservations right now, before it's too late. >> just a few months ago, i attended one of than merrill's training events. since then, i've sold two properties, i have six houses under construction, and i have three houses under contract. in fact, the house behind me i just sold and made $38,000. i'm providing a better life for my daughter, and i'm absolutely loving life. now i'd like to introduce you to the man who changed my life, my mentor and friend, than merrill. >> it's important for you to know that, when you attend one of my live training events, you're gonna be learning from someone who is successfully doing this right now in today's market. over the years, i've flipped hundreds of properties. i built a sizeable rental portfolio, and i have 31 deals going on right now, like the one behind me. i also have a track record for teaching other regular, everyday people how to be successful in real estate. in fact, i have some of the most
3:03 am
country, who have done thousands of documented deals using my system. i've literally created a road map for you to achieve your financial goals. this event -- it's gonna be a turning point for many of you watching this show right now. but you have to pick up the phone in order to make that change. all you need to do is call the number at the bottom of the screen or go online right now to reserve your two free tickets to my upcoming two-hour educational event. >> than's event gave me the confidence that i needed to succeed. since then, i have completed 15 real-estate deals, and i'm in the current process of completing two more. >> we have a lot of students who had zero real-estate experience who are now flipping multiple properties a month. however, learning how to flip is only part of what we teach you at the event. the second important step we teach you is how to build
3:04 am
you see, the key to building true lifelong wealth is to learn how to acquire income-producing properties, like this one right here, that produce monthly checks for you whether you work or not. and if you think about it, no matter what you do for work right now, chances are you wake up, you leave your house, you leave your family, and you trade your time for money. however, there's only so many hours in a day that you can work. so, your ability to produce income is capped. just imagine owning real estate that produces money for you every single month, regardless of whether you're at work, on vacation, or asleep in your bed. this newfound financial freedom is gonna give you peace of mind, it's gonna give you more free time, and it's gonna allow you to give back to those that you care about the most.
3:05 am
properties, set up passive monthly income streams, and in the next few months, i will be able to quit my job, all from what i learned. >> now, i know some of you watching at home may have been to other trainings, or you're financially comfortable right now, or you're already in real estate in some shape or fashion. you might be wondering how i can help you. well, over the years, i've helped so many people grow and literally automate what they do by learning our system. take gregg cohen, for example. gregg is a student of mine now doing over 100 deals a year and absolutely crushing it. i've even had students who have attended our training events, who started using our systems, and are now so successful that other people started taking notice, and they now have their own tv shows and have been featured on shows like "flipping san diego" on a&e and "property wars" on discovery and "house hunters" on hgtv. in fact, here is one of those students.
3:06 am
you teach is amazing. as you know, i was a realtor before becoming an investor, and i went to your seminar, and it all clicked. i started rehabbing properties and using your systems, and my business took off like wildfire. and as you know, the discovery channel started calling me when they found out what i was doing, and now i'm featured on "property wars." going to your seminar was the best decision i ever made. >> curt is a great guy who's become very successful using our three-step system. and what really blows me away is not only how well curt and our thousands of other students are doing financially, but, more importantly, how proud their spouses and families are of what they've done and what they've accomplished and just how happy they are now. >> i have a business that my wife and children are proud of. we're going into neighborhoods and being paid to fix up properties. i'm building a legacy for my wife, my children, and my grandchildren, and i'm doing something that i absolutely love. >> at the event -- and this is
3:07 am
three powerful and little-known strategies for investing in real estate passively and earning high rates of return. in fact, one of those strategies you're gonna be introduced to, you can earn up to 16% to 18% interest on your money, supported by united states state law and backed by real estate. this is a little-known, passive real-estate-investment vehicle that's been around for over 100 years. we're also gonna show you how to use this strategy and other strategies to flip properties 100% tax-free. these are killer ways to invest in real estate and possibly build a retirement account for you and your family, because your money's gonna be growing so much faster in a tax-free or a tax-deferred environment. you see, working a job and just saving money alone may not get you to your long-term financial and retirement goals, and that's
3:08 am
learn these powerful, long-term wealth-building strategies. >> right now, we're working on houses number 14 and 15, and we have number 16 in contract. and on our last four deals, we're averaging $100,000 in profits on each deal. >> after all the closing costs and all the expenses it took to do the rehab, we made approximately $110,000. >> this house behind me -- i got it under contract, and using the strategies that you taught me at your event, i was able to sell that contract, and i made over $9,000. >> it completely turned my life around from "a" to "z." that is, by far, the best thing that could have happened to me. >> as you're watching at home -- we only have a few seconds left, so pick up the phone and call the number right now to make your guaranteed reservation. this event is an opportunity many people will jump on in this area and change their lives forever. i really hope that you're one of

3:11 am
start to change the way that states give out delegates with more winner take all contests, tends to favor the leader and make it harder for trailing candidates look cruz and kasich to catch up. but more than that, trump will also be heading into a map beyond tuesday that should favor him politically. there will be contests in the northeast in the west. places that are full of the kind of blue-collar, suburban republicans voteding for him already. so the thinking will go if they can't find a way to stop him tomorrow, in places like florida, ohio, hard to see huh him at all. >> what happens tomorrow if likely now, but loses ohio? >> it will become much harder jut right. and kasich are hoping for. slow him down if not to catch him. a glimmer of hop to those who into the spring, maybe into the >> anthony salvanto, cbs news director of elections.

3:24 am
changing of the guard. if trump wins the nomination for the convention and looks like he probably will it is going to turn the republican party on its ear. if it goes to an open convention, it will be a bloody fight that could break the party into two parties. and in either case, republican party scott, that we used to know it, will be replaced by something new, exactly what that will be, is uncertain. and that is the scariest part of all, because the one thing that always bodes ill in politics, economics or national security matters is just that. >> do you think trump could win the presidency? >> he could. historically, nominees from outside their party mainstream do poorly when republicans split over civil rights in '64. nominated barry goldwatt r they want down to historic landslide defeat. when democrats kicked out party regulars and nominated george mcgovern in '72 he lost every state but massachusetts.

4:16 am
is there any sign that isis is getting weaker? >> when they first came, they were tough, said this man. but now they can see that mosul is turning against them. the men told this a plan to fight against isis themselves now they're free. and to smuggle their wives and children out of mosul as soon as they can. this was just one night on the front line. but what we heard suggested people in mosul are growing increasingly angry with isis. and scott, that could make retaking the city a little easier. when iraqi forces eventually begin their offensive to recapture mosul. >> holly nice to have you here for once where nobody is shooting. holly williams, thank you very much for remark bum report. en a first, an american citizen fighting for isis. surrendered today in northern iraq. kurdish forces are holding him. they posted this video of him. he was said to be holding a

4:24 am
if trump wins the nomination for the convention and looks like he probably will it is going to turn the republican party on its ear. if it goes to an open convention, it will be a bloody fight that could break the party into two parties. and in either case, republican party scott, that we used to know it, will be replaced by something new, exactly what that will be, is uncertain. and that is the scariest part of all, because the one thing that always bodes ill in politics, economics or national security matters is just that. >> do you think trump could win the presidency? >> he could. historically, nominees from outside their party mainstream do poorly when republicans split over civil rights in '64. nominated barry goldwatt r they want down to historic landslide defeat. when democrats kicked out party regulars and nominated george mcgovern in '72 he lost every state but massachusetts. under the old rule, scott, what
