Can Rick Perry Clean Up The Mess He Made For Himself?

November 10, 2011 Leave a comment

As I watched the debate Wednesday night between the eight Republican presidential primary opponents, I was overall pleased, both by the way the candidates handled themselves and by the answers they gave to the myriad of economic questions they were asked. It was a debate that I personally think all Republicans won, and while many like myself may think that Perry is finished, the ultimate loser was CNBC. CNBC lost because they could not make the Republican candidates act like a bunch of toddlers fighting over the only toy in the room.

The moderators tried their best to get any of the candidates to admit that taxes must be raised to save the economy, but to no avail. All the candidates agreed that raising taxes would be the worst move a president could do. Instead they all called for taxes to be cut, spending to be reduced, and various agencies to be eliminated along with repealing Obamacare.

Why Perry’s Campaign Is Not Quite Dead Yet

The five reasons I asserted that Governor Perry would have the best shot at beating Obama were simple ones: He decisively created more jobs than Obama. He greatly respects and tries to encourage small businesses. He has a clear understanding of federalism and what states shouldn’t be forced into.

The un-debate ~ the most talked about moment in tonight’s CNBC debate in Michigan came when Texas Gov. Rick Perry had a cringe-worthy meltdown…

November 10, 2011 Leave a comment

It goes without saying that the most talked about moment in tonight’s CNBC debate in Michigan came when Texas Gov.

Rick Perry had a cringe-worthy meltdown struggling to remember the three government agencies he wanted to eliminate. But there was a telling moment earlier in the evening, when Mitt Romney was asked about his record of taking inconsistent positions, and he responded by citing his long marriage, time at Bain Capital and church membership as evidence of his steadiness.

Perry followed Romney, and didn’t attempt to attack him as a flip-flopper. That was the trend all evening, as Republican rivals refrained from criticizing each other.

PARALLEL UNIVERSE: Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

November 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Lord Acton‘s famous saying is often misquoted as “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Either quote applies to the power of the United States, says Judge Andrew P. Napolitano in his 2010 book “Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power, and Deception in American History” (Thomas Nelson, 368 pages, notes, index) which I found while dropping off a bunch of my review copies at our local library. I can think of no better good deed than to help a public library in times of need — and they’re always in times of need!

What convinced me to check out the good Judge’s book was the book’s foreward by Rep. Ron Paul, R-TX, who’s my congressman (Texas 14) and the guy I voted for in 1988 for President when he ran on the Libertarian Party ticket. I’ve voted for him twice in his re-election bid, in 2008 and 2010. I met Paul at a function in Calhoun County, Texas, where I live, and he autographed my copy of his book “End the Fed”. (for my review: http://archives.huntingtonnews.net/columns/090916-kinchen-columnsbookreview.html).

Like Paul, Napolitano hates the Fed and devotes “Lie #8 “The Federal Reserve Shall Be Controlled by Congress” to a discussion — and dissection — of the Fed. For one thing, it’s a private organization of banks and bankers and there’s nothing “Federal” about it. It also has no “Reserve” and is backed by neither gold nor silver. I call it the “Creature from Jekyll Island,” the offshore Georgia island where a band of bankers and political leaders met in secret in 1910 to come up with the idea for a backdoor central bank.

More and more people are becoming concerned about the shady, secretive organization that is Codex Alimentarius – the thinly-veiled propaganda arm of the international pharmaceutical industry that does everything it can to promote industry objectives whilst limiting individual options to maintain health (which would diminish mermbers profits).

Codex alimentarius is one of the major bodies behind the effort to limit access to nutritional products and information. Its motivation is not rocket science and neither is the source of its funding – money that somehow expected to return a profit to its members . . .

“If Paul and Obama were to face-off in a televised debate it is clear who would win: Paul. ~ “Ron Paul Still Top Tier; Some Ponder a Third-Party Bid

November 10, 2011 Leave a comment

If Paul and Obama were to face-off in a televised debate it is clear who would win: Paul.

Obama has no integrity and no ideas of his own. He is a mere puppet, a whore, a cheater. If Obama didn’t have the treasonous banks on Wall Street, the Federal Reserve, the Madison Avenue propaganda machine, the military-industrial complex and the shadow government behind him then he would be a nobody.

Despite the constant assertion heard in the mainstream media that Ron Paul is unelectable or a non-viable candidate, these results seem to prove otherwise. What is most significant, perhaps, about these numbers is Paul’s consistent popularity and success in his campaign even without the support of the corporate media or lobbyists.

I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings. I understand that there is a residual sympathy for service members, perhaps engendered by support for troops in World War II, or perhaps from when there was a draft and people with few resources to resist were involuntarily sent to battle. That sympathy is not particularly rational in today’s world, however.

Be Honest CNBC-You Are Biased Against Ron Paul

November 10, 2011 1 comment

Those of us who have supported Ron Paul since his presidential run in 2008 (and some who supported him long before that) have come to expect an astonishing array of mainstream media tricks, lies, and censorship when it comes to the “journalistic” examination of the good doctor.

This doesn’t mean, however, that we have ever or will ever come to ACCEPT this consistent trend of deception and disinformation as a forgone conclusion of our political lives.

We will never throw up our hands and walk away from the mess the MSM has deliberately created, because that is exactly what they would like us to do; give up, shut up, go home, vote for Romney (an establishment crony with the creepy grin of a pedophile), and watch him lose to Obama (yet another establishment crony) in 2012.

Obama Learns Newspeak: The Administration’s Perversion of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Forbes ^ | 11/9/2011 | Harvey Silverglate

Posted on Thursday, November 10, 2011 6:00:00 PM by bruinbirdman

President Obama should know better. Our constitutional-law-professor-in-chief has, once again, taken the government to unprecedented levels of secrecy while institutionalizing the perversions of our seemingly never-ending war-on-terror. On October 30th, the administration, without seeking Congressional authorization, proposed an executive rule that will license governmental agencies to issue bald-faced lies to the citizenry, making a mockery not only of the Freedom of Information Act, but of the President’s supposed promise of transparency.

Early in his presidency in 2009, in a “memorandum for the heads of executive departments and agencies” regarding proposed changes to the operation of the Freedom of Information Act, President Obama extolled the virtues of governmental openness, stating that

A democracy requires accountability, and accountability requires transparency. As Justice Louis Brandeis wrote, “sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.” In our democracy, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which encourages accountability through transparency, is the most prominent expression of a profound national commitment to ensuring an open Government.

The State Department, which announced the decision, has been reviewing the proposed project since 2008 to determine whether it is in the national interest.

We’ve all been there, which may have been what made Rick Perry’s gaffe during Wednesday night’s televised Republican debates extra grimace-inducing. In a media interview on Thursday morning, the Texas governor defended his failure to recall the name of the third government agency he wanted to abolish – a glitch punctuated by an embarrassing “oops” – by pointing out that “All of us make mistakes. I’m a human being.”

The real scandal in the accusations against Herman Cain is the corruption of the law, the media and politics.

Let’s start with the law. Some people may think the fact that the National Restaurant Association reportedly paid $45,000 to settle a claim made by one of its employees against Mr. Cain is incriminating.

Most of us are not going to part with 45 grand without some serious reason. But that is very different from the situation of an organization in the present legal climate.

The figure $45,000 struck a chord with me because, some years ago, my wife — who is an attorney — was fervently congratulated when her client had to pay “only” $45,000 in a jury award when the plaintiff was demanding a million dollars, in a case that was as frivolous a lawsuit as you could find.

Every 2012 contender attended college. They all graduated. They went to schools like the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia, Texas A&M, Morehouse, Penn State and Emory. But decades have passed since these Presidential candidates first stepped onto campus as freshmen.

Is it time for an Econ 101 refresher course? America’s Econ 101 professors say yes. In their view, the candidates continue to offer ideas and policies that wouldn’t pass muster in their classes – populated by 18 year-old college students. “There are so many economic ‘misstatements’ being made,” said Jonathan Lanning, a professor at Bryn Mawr who is teaching two introductory economics classes this semester. “And it isn’t confined to any one candidate.” … Another professor who teaches at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Michael Salemi, was able to identify statements from six candidates that “would earn failing grades in my Econ 101 class.”

CNBC Cans Debate Poll Because Ron Paul Was Leading

Network Managing Editor claims having well organized political support constitutes “gaming”

Steve Watson

Prisonplanet.com

November 10, 2011

CNBC pulled an online poll 25 minutes after last night’s GOP debate, reasoning that “one candidate” was leading by a large margin – that candidate was, of course, Ron Paul.

As the following video shows, Ron Paul was ahead of the pack by a large margin, before the poll was unceremoniously pulled from the CNBC site altogether and replaced with a generic article titled “Who won the debate – Attendees weigh in”:

CNBC Managing Editor Allen Wastler issued the following statement explaining the reason the poll was removed:

Gamed Poll…So We Took It Down

We had a poll up from our Republican Presidential Debate asking readers who they thought won. One candidate was leading by such a margin that it became obvious the polling wasn’t so much a reading of our audience, but of the Internet prowess of this particular candidate’s political organization. We have therefore taken the poll down. Yes, we’ve gone through this exercise before.

Wastler included a link to a previous statement from 2007, where exactly the same thing happened.

Ralph Nader and the Center for Study of Responsive Law’s “Debating Taboos” series continues Friday, November 18 with “Bush/Obama: War Crimes or Lawful Wars?”

The debate format consists of two moderators and four debaters. Arguing against the proposition that Bush and Obama engaged in war crimes are attorneys David Rivkin and Lee Casey. Rivkin served in the Department of Justice under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, and is renowned for articulate commentary on the U.S. Constitution and presidential war powers. Casey, Rivkin’s frequent collaborator, also served in the DOJ under Reagan and H.W. Bush, and currently specializes in compliance issues under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), U.S. trade sanctions regimes, and federal ethics requirements. He has also served on the United Nations Subcommission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.

Why won’t the media report on Barack Obama being gay, the way they leaped to trash Herman Cain?

Last week, the agenda-driven, drive-by media trashed Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain with unsubstantiated and poorly sourced sexual innuendo.

This week, let’s all talk about Democrat President Barack Obama being gay, him sexually harassing male actor Kal Penn, and his frequenting of Chicago gay bathhouse “Man’s Country” — using the Left’s established precedent for journalistic integrity when it comes to rumor and gossip.

Rick Perry’s sensational meltdown during last night’s CNBC debate in Michigan could not only serve to doom his entire presidential campaign, it could also help Ron Paul cement his position as a top tier challenger to Herman Cain and Mitt Romney.

 

Perry’s embarrassing gaffe, in which he spent minutes stumbling over the name of a government agency he wanted to abolish, has virtually ended any lingering hopes he had of recapturing his early lead that has evaporated swiftly over the last few months.

Lee Duigon — How Pure Crapola Becomes Settled Science

November 10, 2011 1 comment

People understand that Congress is unspeakably corrupt. Many also understand that our “news” media suppress and distort the news; that our public schools and colleges make their students dumber instead of smarter; or even that certain churches train their congregations more in the way of worldliness than godliness.

But Science! There’s an institution we can still believe in. And most of us still do—as if fallen, sinful human beings turn into angels the moment they don lab coats.

Thanks to Science we have learned to believe in some of the most preposterous and malignant notions ever dreamed up in this poor, sin-laden world. We believe, for instance, in Evolution, or in Man-made Global Warming—because we are told, over and over and over again, that we must believe in it.

Dave Daubenmire — The Bible-Belt is Unbuckled

But the church has shirked the responsibility. We have passed the buck and hired mercenaries to do our dirty work. We call them Pro-life Republicans, politicians, but they are surrogate salt. They are vote counters, not Truth defenders. Why would we expect them to do a job that the pastors will not? It is so much easier to send another to war than it is to go ourselves. Voting is so much easier than fighting.

Cutting Down the Cabinet ~ “GOP contenders are talking like the elimination of entire departments is a foregone conclusion”

Cutting Down the Cabinet

The big media story from last nights Republican Presidential Primary Debate on CNBC was Governor Perry’s gaffe when he tried listing the departments of the federal government he would eliminate. Maybe lost in the sensationalism is the change in our national politics that this topic represents.

The majority of the GOP contenders are talking like the elimination of entire departments is a foregone conclusion. It might be election year politics, but the idea is immensely popular among conservatives judging by the crowd reactions every time someone in any of the debates has suggested it. Now we all know that a President by himself can not create or abolish an entire department by fiat. A good deal of congressional arm twisting, threats, pandering, pontificating, high horse riding and the obligitory “widows and orphans thrown out into the streets” stories would all accompany any serious attempt to eliminate a federal department. However, it is encouraging that it has become a more broadly accepted theme that in years past.

The existence of the Cabinet dates back to the first American President, George Washington, who appointed a Cabinet of four people (Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson; Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton; Secretary of War Henry Knox; and Attorney General Edmund Randolph) to advise and assist him in his duties. Cabinet officers are nominated by the President and then presented to the United States Senate for confirmation or rejection by a simple majority.

Kidnapping and Ransom Rampant in the US by Jeff Berwick

RANSOMS RAISED

The kidnappers, hard up for money in these tough economic times have begun to raise their ransoms. Kidnappers in Arizona allow you to visit the person kidnapped but they demand a fee of $25 per visit.

And now one criminal cartel that controls the area called Riverside County in California has stated that they will be kidnapping people and demanding a ransom of $142.42 per day. Cartel boss, Jeff Stone, released this statement to the media about their increase in operations:

“I think we’re blazing a new trail here. In these very challenging economic times, I believe this can be a source of revenue … I believe this can return 3 to 5 million (dollars) a year during these very challenging economic times.”

Other cartels throughout the US are likely watching this with great interest.

KIDNAPPING CONDITIONS IN THE US

Often times those kidnapped in the US are placed in very overcrowded conditions, brutally beaten and sodomized by other hostages. One particularly brutal cartel boss who operates in the southern Arizona corridor, with the nickname “Sheriff Joe”, has been very active abducting people from their cars after leaving bars and putting them in concentration camps in the Arizona desert at temperatures often above 110F and feeding them spoiled food and dressing them in pink jumpsuits – a strange fetish of the crime boss.
