2:38 am
and if not, you're still gonna gain. it's a win-win forhem. as you continue to watch this show, you're going to learn a few strategiese teach at my free two-hr real-estate workshop. things like how you can access your 401(k) and your ira to invest in real estate. u dot have to keep making small rerns onour money, and you can direct those funds into secure androfitable real-estate deals. listen, most people don't even know that you can do that. it's the best-kept secret, and these are secrets that you're gonna get. that's just one of them. come to the event, and we're gonna show you more. >> one of the best this, i think, that i've enjoy out of this whole deal is nick showing me how to use my ira money as a self-directed ira to buy real estate. before, you know, i was dendent on the stock market and i was watching it. and it'd go up, it'd go down. i'd lose $20,000, $30,000, $40,000 in a week, and it was li -- it was driving me crazy.
2:39 am
into this self-directed ira, i can buy real estate like this use i bought with my ira. doing all the rehab comes out my ira. and what i make on it goes back into my ira, and i'll make about $55,000 on this house. so, that's 30% in three months. my ira, say, if i had $150,000 in there, w it $210,000 in there, so i can go g a bigger house, or i can get two houses or three houses or four houses going at one time with my own money d make, you know, 120% a year on my money. >> it was surprising for me to find out we could use ou retirement to invest in real estate, like our ira and also 401(k). >> do you know that 90plus of the populaon does not know that? they do not know that you can take your 401(k) and your ira and actually invest within it. you can loan witn it, you can flip houses, you can hold cash-flow property. so, for instance, let's say you
2:40 am
you find a property that's $100,000 even. that ira can hold that property inside of it. and you can grow your retirement with brick-and-mortar assets that instead of being in the stock market, that's where you choose not to be -- 'cause let's face it. if you have your money in cash, at a cash position, with depreciation and inflation, you are not gonna be able to outlive your money, unless you have an exuberant amount or you're really high earner. and in most cases, that's not the way it is for most people, soou have to invest. if you own aiece of property, it's an appreciating asset that, for example, all the rents that come in go back into your ira. and let's say the market goes from $100,000 to $150,000 inhe next five years -- that property gains $50,000 in equit well, that means yr ira just went up by $50,000, and all that income that comes in is tax-deferred until you deal with taking the income later. it a major vehicle of investing that minvestors learn coming through my
2:41 am
free event, theye gonna know more about that. and the reason why your financial planner does not want you to know that is because if you do not invest in stocks, then they don't make commission. ey don't make money on your money. so they don't wantour money, which is the key word -- your money to be able to be shifted somewherthat you can ld real estate and make money elsewhere. so it really is the best-kept secret, and i'm here to let that secret out because i think people need to know it and then make a decision for themselves. does that make sense >> that's amazing. really -- it amazed me -- that i found out is that close to 90% to 95% of the people listening to my show and my students that come through my academy do not and 401(k) to invest inour ira real estate. ? >> announcer: if you're looking to make money while taking control of your financial future, then listen up. nick vertucci, self-made millionaire, has a life-changing

3:33 am
victor manuel said he felt like he had lost a patriarch, "the father of our family, the father of the revolution," he said. havana's normally bustling revolution plaza was quiet. workers were busy preparing for two days of tributes to the dictator who led the country for half a century. thousands of cubans will pay their respects in the shadow of the monument to national hero jose marti and a sculpture of revoluar guevara. inside the cathedral lettisia fonseca prayed and reflected. castro was someone who helped us a lot she said, especially the cuban community of the lower class. on saturday at castro's former university dozens of students chanted "i am fidel." pedicab driver lanzaro alonzo said he hopes cast troes death would not slow progress in cuba. "we continue to work hard," he
3:34 am
"there will be great moments that will come for this country." people here will gather for official state memorials starting tomorrow, with the largest expected on tuesday at revolution square, where castro delivered some of his most fiery speeches. his remains will then be taken from havana to santiago, essentially retracing in reverse the steps he took in victory with the revolutionary army. meg, his funeral will be next sunday in santiago, known as the cradle of castro's revolution. >> manuel bojorquez, thank you. about 225 miles north of havana it's a very different mood. more like a party in miami's cuban-american neighborhood little havana. david begnaud is there. >> reporter: this is the second day that people have taken to the street here in little havana. as one woman said, we're not celebrating the death of fidel castro but we're celebrating the potential for freedom in cuba. it's still front-page news. i want to show you the front

3:37 am
from our shores. allow independent political parties to be able to function. you know, the kinds of things that you find in virtually every country in the western hemisphere except cuba and now increasingly venezuela. that's what i'd like to see, and i'd like to see our foreign policy geared toward accelerating that. i believe it is in our national interest to see democracy take hold on the island of cuba. and so we should examine our foreign policy including all the changes that president obama made in that lens and through that lens. >> why not just reverse? >> well, as i said, there are key elements that are more important than others. we'll look at all of them. here's the thing people don't understand, and i've said this repeatedly. i am not against changes in u.s. policy toward cuba. i just want to make sure that those changes are reciprocal, that they're reciprocated by the cuban government. that was not part of what president obama did. and i want to make sure they're the kinds of things that help create a pathway toward democracy in cuba because while fidel castro was 90 years old his brother's 85. there is going to be a generational leadership change
3:38 am
ten years, hopefully sooner, and we need to ensure that our foreign policy toward cuba incentivizes and makes it easier for there to be a democratic transition. when the "overnight news" returns we'll look back at the life and legacy of fidel castro. rid-x helps break down waste. avoid a septic disaster with rid-x. ?living well? rise above joint discomfort with move free ultra's triple action joint support for improved mobility and flexibility, and 20% better comfort from one tiny, mighty pill... get move free ultra, and enjoy living well. ? rooms come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. with eight times more fragrance control,

with his rebels fidel castro looked and sounded like a freedom fighter, a romantic hero. >> there are thousands of men who would gladly join us. >> reporter: not the bogey man he became to so many. >> we gladly suffer cold and rain and the hardship of life in the mountain. this is only the beginning. the last battle will be fought in the capital. you can be sure of it. >> reporter: but there was no battle. on new year's day 1959 cuban dictator general rogencio batista, the bloated corrupt embodiment of cuba's problems, fled the country. fidel castro was born in 1926, one of five children. his family was prosperous and owned this sugar plantation in eastern cuba. educated by the jesuits, he
3:42 am
him, the inequality, turned him into a revolutionary. >> fidel castro, at the age of 32 you now have in your hands a great deal of power and a great deal of responsibility. >> reporter: a month after taking power, interviewed on cbs by edward r. murrow, castro said exactly what americans wanted to hear. >> tell me, fidel castro, are you concerned at all about the communist influence in cuba? >> oh, i'm not wor really there is not a threat about communism here in cuba. >> reporter: it's still not clear whether he changed or whether he lied. but when castro began executing opponents, when castro started nationalizing industries and appropriating u.s. property in cuba, it didn't matter.
3:43 am
the economic embargo that exists to this day. since the early 1960s more than a million cubans have left. most of them landed in miami with nothing but their lives and the fierce determination to bring fidel castro down one way or another. in april of 1961 an army of cuban exiles backed by the cia tried to slip into the bay of pigs and liberate the island. e and embarrassing failure. with a jubilant castro playing david to the u.s. goliath, a role he fine-tuned for the rest of his life, with help from the soviet union. >> this is a cbs news extra. >> reporter: the following year, in 1962, u.s. spy planes spotted the russians installing nuclear
3:44 am
missiles. >> reporter: this was the cold war in our own back yard. suddenly, cuba seemed very, very important. >> i have directed the armed forces to prepare for any eventuality. >> castro did not blink. it appealed to him to play this role that he would harbor these missiles that could threaten the great imperial -- that he could do this. >> reporter: jay taylor represented u.s. interests in cuba in the 1980s. >> the world teetered on the edge. teetered on the edge of a nuclear war. we're talking about the world. millions. millions dying. >> it shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from cuba or against any nation in the western hemisphere as an attack by the soviet union on the united states, requiring a full retaliatory response upon the soviet union.
3:45 am
f. kennedy and soviet leader nikita khrushchev played chicken until khrushchev backed down and the missiles were removed. but that wasn't the end of soviet involvement in cuba. ? the russians pumped something like $5 billion a year into the cuban economy, propping it up, while the united states kept tightening the screws, toughening sanctions, with the expectation that one day castro would fall. the cia repeatedly plotted to kill him. but still he hung on, jailing dissidents, neutralizing political rivals, speaking for hours on end before vast crowds bused in to hear him.
3:46 am
the mariel boatlift that year was a huge repudiation of castro's claim that cubans were happy and content. told they were free to go, 125,000 did. risking their lives, piling onto small boats and makeshift rafts for the 90-mile crossing to florida. >> it did hurt his image. but in the end the fact that the united states then had to stop this flow having said we would not turn our backs on them, suddenly we did, and we said turn them back and stopped the boats, that castro then i think felt that he had emerged still even from that politically the victor. >> reporter: especially when it became clear that 10,000 to 15,000 of the refugees he sent our way were insane or criminals turned loose from prisons and asylums. if life in cuba was bad then, it got worse when the soviet union
3:47 am
suddenly all that soviet money was gone, along with the oil cuba received in exchange for sugar. cubans were literally starving. anti-castro interests in the united states thought surely the end was in sight. but in 1993 fidel castro, the crafty survivor, did something startling to prop up the cuban economy. he legalized the u.s. dollar, which t relatives in miami sent you money you could afford to eat. today those payments bring in $3 billion a year. castro also invited foreign investment. suddenly cuba looked like one big construction site. you name the country. canada, france, spain, mexico, the netherlands, israel. everybody but the united states was there building massive
3:48 am
2 million tourists who now visit cuba every year. in 1998 when fidel castro welcomed pope john paul ii and let the pictures do the talking, the world saw cuba surviving in spite of the u.s. trade embargo. it was political theater on a grand scale, the kind castro loved. remember the custody showdown over elian gonzalez? the small boy rescued at sea after his mother drowned trying to escape cuba with him. castro won. the boy was returned to his father in cuba. >> he milked it in every way to make the cuban community in miami look bad and the cuban community in miami frankly fell right into the trap.
3:49 am
marisele perez estabele is a sociology professor at florida international university. >> the revolution was simply claiming a son for his father. >> reporter: the revolution does have its supporters, who give castro credit for raising the literacy rate in cuba to nearly 100% and for providing free health care to all. cuba turns out highly skilled doctors, respected throughout latin amera. in february 2008, after a long illness, fidel castro officially transferred cuba's presidency to his younger brother raul. >> today the united states of america is changing its relationship with the people of cuba. >> reporter: it was raul who agreed in 2014 to a restoration of diplomatic relations with the united states. it was raul who welcomed president obama to cuba in march of this year.
3:50 am
faded fidel castro appeared at a communist party congress. "soon i will be 90 years old," he said, in what seemed like a farewell address. stating "everyone's turn comes. but the ideas of cuban communists will remain." he turned 90 on august 13th, the day of his last public appearan. but even in death he remains a bogey man to some. >> castro will always be remembered as the cuban, latin american revolutionary who stood up to the united states and won. won in terms of his health brought him down, not anything that the united states ever did.
