When The MSM Does Not Ignore Ron Paul

In my previous post, I pointed out the way the mainstream media is attempting to ignore Ron Paul or when they do mention his polling numbers, the polls themselves become suspect.  In this post, I will point out that the only thing worse than the mainstream media ignoring Ron Paul is when it decides not to ignore him but instead attempts to denegrate, or ridicule his views.  What’s interesting is that the rivalry that exists between Fox and CNN is put aside as they find the most contraversial Ron Paul statements made during an interview by their competitors and attempt to put him in the position of either defending what’s presented as an outrageous statement, denying it, or admitting that he didn’t mean it.  

The first two videos below illustrate one example of the above tag team strategy used by Fox and CNN.  The last three videos illustrate that Ron Paul knew what he was talking about in the first two videos.  


Chris Wallace (Fox News) interviewing Ron Paul on FEMA in conjunction with hurricane Irene on the Eastern Seaboard asks a series of questions predicated on the premise that Ron Paul’s views are radical, extreme and certainly not mainstream.


Wolf Blitzer (CNN) attempts to get a negative sound bite against Ron Paul from governor O’Malley of Maryland based on Ron Paul’s previous comments about how FEMA is a disaster.  When O’Malley refuses to take the bait and reminds Blitzer to concentrate on the storm and forget politics for a while, Blitzer is shown to be a biased commentator rather than dispassionate news reporter.  Not to worry though, Wolf isn’t ashamed.  When you have no pride in your profession, you don’t worry about shame.


Fox News contemporaneously reporting during and shortly after Hurricane Katrina that devastated New Orleans.  Near the end of this video, a member of Oath Keepers explains why there is a need to get military, as well as, local, state and federal law enforcement officials to swear to obey their oaths to the constitution rather than simply obey a superiors orders when they are clearly unconstitutional.


Wolf Blitzer must have missed the following CNN documentary in which they enumerate and illustrate detail after detail to document FEMA’s irrational, almost unimaginable fraud, waste and symbiotic nature of the corporatism that defines business/government partnerships.
FEMA Waste – part 1.

FEMA Waste – part 2


IN 2012 IT’S RON PAUL

NOBODY AT ALL

Since the New York Times doesn’t allow me to mirror one of their articles, you’ll have to settle for THIS LINK to their article entitled: U.S. Wants To Make It Easier To Wiretap The Internet.

I’m laughing because me and millions more like me have old copies of PGP as well as programming languages capable of creating encryptions that are difficult if not practically impossible to decrypt.  Not only that, but there are countless ways to pass information between two (or more) people with almost complete confidence that no one will ever discover the encryption medium, or even discover that there is an encryption medium.

First it was an “Internet Kill Switch” and now that they’ve (apparently) discovered that such a thing would be more difficult than keeping our neighbors to the South from visiting us at will, they think they can eavesdrop on it.

Really.  You just have to laugh at these clowns.

Next thing you know, they’ll be appropriating money to build ID Cards that can’t be counterfeited.  Oh wait…

Dumb And Dumber

That title refers to me.  I’ve been incredibly naive and gullible for too damned long.

When I first saw the NYT article on people who moved onto a flood plain and were then astonished to discover high water, I thought it was a funny human interest article.  Since I thought that no lender would offer a mortgage on a home in a flood plain that didn’t include flood insurance, I was curious about the cost of a policy… so I tried to find out how much it would cost on the open market.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the only flood insurance offered is one based on a FEMA subsidized (100%) policy.  If you peruse their website, you’ll discover how they train policy sales people and how to get in line to become a corporate welfare recipient of a program that’s sold as a social safety net.

A friend of mine expressed regret that he felt a little mean for thinking that maybe they deserved what they got.

No… what I think is mean, is luring ignorant people into taking risks that will statistically result in a benefit to someone else.  A benefit that’s going to add to the debt that will only be paid by my (our) grandchildren.

What the heck is going on?

Tim DeChristopher

Rather than entering my long winded diatribe about why I’ve more and more decided to loath what was once the greatest experiment in liberty the world has ever known, I’m going to rely instead on the following already published accounts of why we should all know Tim DeChristopher.

After you’ve watched the video account of his actions and their consequences, please take the time to read his complete statement at his sentencing .

Are you ashamed too?

History Of US Currency Defaults

Horror!  Tremble in fear for the possibility of (another) currency default.

We never learn, do we?

Cower in terror at the thought of Moody’s downgrading US currency.

What we really ought to do is reflect on past defaults and try to imagine the really horrible consequence of failing to stop this counterfeiting FED enterprise in it’s tracks right now before it’s too late to prevent our winding up like the Weimar Republic.

In it’s customary fashion, Mises.Org describes US currency default history.

Texas Voters Get What They Deserve

The Texas legislature had a chance yesterday to drive the last nail in the coffin of the Texas based TSA’s ability to sexually abuse children and grandmothers in wheel chairs.

The cowardly weasel, House Speaker Joe Straus along with the conniving Lt. Governor David Dewhurst and his equally dishonest ally, Governor Rick Perry put enough fear into enough house members to kill the bills authored by Congressman David Simpson and Senator Dan Patrick that would have criminalized TSA agents who chose to “just follow orders” that instructed them to feel around in the panties of the least likely terrorists on Earth.

If Texas and other states used their brains instead of their collective wallets to rake in campaign funds in return for back scatter x-ray machines, more power and less constitutional restrictions, they’d do the sensible thing and hire employees like those starring in the following video.

Texans who help reelect Straus, Dewhurst and Perry deserve what they get:  lying, cowardly, third rate crooks.
