Ron Paul Hits It Out of the Park

This is an old picture from when Ron played on the Congress baseball team. But it tells the future as on June 5 CNN will broadcast the next Republican debate and history will repeat. Stay tuned.

Ron Paul Waterboards Hannity and Fox

Dr. Paul turned over 4000 people upside down and slapped their behinds. Now he intellectually waterboards the fools at FOX in this video of an after-debate interview. Well done.

Mr. Murphy was kind enough to question my rush to judgement concerning him and Mr. Laffer.
The section in question is this:
"One thing that made me uncomfortable was the correct knowledge that cutting taxes doesn't mean a drop in revenue to the State. With praise from Arthur B. Laffer, Murphy can easily be seen as endorsing the Laffer curve which absurdly suggests the optimal taxing point is the point that generates the most revenue. This is one position that makes Murphy appear to be pandering to Republicans."
Mr. Murphy corrected me with this, "I work for Arthur Laffer. He got really mad when I suggested that he thought the optimal tax point was the one that maximized revenues. He said a journalist invented that and he has never said it, and I've never seen him say it. All he did was make the point that cutting tax rates didn't necessarily make you lose revenue, especially in the long run. If that convinces big spenders to go along with tax cuts, he thought it was a great strategic point."
I believe this is important information we can all use and I hope Wikipedia is challenged in its definition and explanation.
A major concern I had in my writing was NOT to endorse deficit spending by government. The line of Hamiltonian Federalist - Whig - Republican did endorse debt to transfer money to the banking interests. Now that we have a 100% fiat currency, there is no, or less, restraint on spending. Mr. Murphy certainly did NOT endorse this Mercantilism, American System, or corporate welfare.
I may also owe Thomas DiLorenzo an apology as I probably slam people too hard for not coming down on the Rockefellers. (He expressed displeasure with my assumptions.) In the last hundred years that family has done much damage to the country. (Last night I was reading a very good book, Collusion, and it mentioned on page 82 how the University of Chicago put together Albert Wohlstetter and Chalabi. Wohlstetter introduced Chalabi to today's neocons. It looks to me like evil attracts evil.)
I certainly thank these impressive writers for their input.

The PIG for Capitalism

Robert P. Murphy, Ph.D. did a good job on what Ron Paul said was, "An invaluable introduction to free market economics." Lew Rockwell was quoted praising its truth.

Perhaps I can be quoted as praising the book for calling capitalism propertyism rather than letting commies define it.

But the book tries to cover too much. To stay within the parameters for the P.I.G., probably hundreds of pages hit the editing room floor and it shows. Mr. Murphy, a writer on Lew Rockwell, comes off as naive in this situation. He may well be naive.

One thing that made me uncomfortable was the correct knowledge that cutting taxes doesn't mean a drop in revenue to the State. With praise from Arthur B. Laffer, Murphy can easily be seen as endorsing the Laffer curve which absurdly suggests the optimal taxing point is the point that generates the most revenue. This is one position that makes Murphy appear to be pandering to Republicans.

The worst part of the book makes Rockefeller look like a great guy. Lew Rockwell writer DiLorenzo also heaps praise on what many consider "Robber Barons". I agree with the facts, but these "doctors" come off as naive. Rockefeller opened the University of Chicago which excused the Federal Reserve and had a professor fight for it. See: http://www.amazon.com/Creature-Jekyll-Island-Federal-Reserve/dp/0912986212
Milton Friedman became libertarian after he left Chicago for San Francisco. Lastly, Rockerfeller paid off trustees to admit a doctor guilty of fraud. His money could only buy so much. See: http://www.amazon.com/Inventing-AIDS-Virus-Peter-Duesberg/dp/0895263998/ref=sr_1_1/102-2631430-5920964?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1179426092&sr=1-1
What might be seen as an establishment book, an idiot's guide, http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Idiots-Guide-Federal-Reserve/dp/0028643232
is a good place to start and it does reference the Jekyll Island book above.
Perhaps Lew can have someone do a P.I.G. on the Federal Reserve. Hopefully the writer won't believe the crap Murphy believes when it comes to failures of the World Bank loans. What Ron Paul calls the "Inflation" Tax is a scheme to rob the working and bail out elites. Think fellows, why do American Workers bailout banks that loan to Mexico whose safety net is a map to the U.S.?
Maybe I did not care for the attack on Paul Craig Roberts. He is not so naive.
Another person I respect is Gene Epstein, author of Eonospinning: http://www.amazon.com/Econospinning-Between-Lines-Manipulate-Numbers/dp/0471735132
A P.I.G. on the Federal Reserve must be brought to the People by someone not naive.
A response by any listed will be printed as a post and all can comment.

Pajama Poll

Pajama Poll is a fake and phoney. Last week I was trying to prove Mike Gravel votes were being counted as Dennis Kucinich votes. This week Mike Gravel is off the choices as well as Ron Paul even though the Republicans have 13 candidates listed, some not running yet.

The Riverbend link

The Riverbend link will remain for a while. I say this after reading in the Guardian that she will be leaving Baghdad. I believe things will get HOT there this summer.

Yahoo and ABC have been omitting Ron Paul

Here is a very good cartoon of what happened at the GOP debate at the Reagan Library. Interesting that the "TRUTH" is not out yet. The "Mainstream Media"has been deflecting TRUTH so far and I see "Special Interests" are not yet ready to strike a blow.
Maybe this year will be different.
Good luck Ron.

New Information, Old Problems

George Tenet's new book contains many lies and some very interesting possible truths.
The most interesting truth is that papers were planted in Baghdad to make it look like Saddam had WMD. These poor forgeries did not fool the CIA (according to Tenet) and as far as I know this is the first revelation on this. It sure looks like the Shia puppets planted this for their American "Liberators."
Tenet wants both credit for being a good soldier and an A for effort when it came to getting and getting out facts. George will find out most believe his failures include keeping too quiet.
A counterpart from the Pentagon did her part as told here by Lawrence M. Ludlow from http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig5/ludlow3.html:
Karen Kwiatkowski, a retired USAF lieutenant colonel and information specialist posted in the Pentagon’s Near East South Asia (NESA) office, supplied strong corroboration. She provided the world with an insider’s view of how the Bush administration was able to create the facts that “supported” its predetermined policy to go to war. While posted at the NESA office in the spring of 2002, she personally witnessed the unholy creation of the Office of Special Plans (OSP), a project that was close to the hearts of Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
A lifelong conservative, Kwiatkowski was appalled by the neoconservative agenda that was being constructed within the OSP. She watched as bona fide information specialists at the Pentagon were replaced by politically appointed information magicians in the OSP. The chief task of these magicians was to toe the White House party line, bury the objections of lifelong Pentagon professionals, twist the facts, and orchestrate the flow of information to build a case that supported the administration’s decision to launch a war. As her frustration mounted in the months before the invasion, she decided to tell the world the truth about what was happening inside the Pentagon; she wrote a series of anonymous dissenting newspaper “columns” that were posted on the Internet by recently deceased decorated Vietnam War veteran Col. David Hackworth. Finally, during the week of the invasion in March 2003, she left the military and went public with her columns – placing her name on her web postings and accepting speaking invitations.
Although the administration attempted to blame its decision to go to war on intelligence errors, the secret Downing Street memo and Kwiatkowski’s reports have exposed how these “errors” were created by the White House to obtain the desired results. Consequently, the House of Representatives published
Iraq on the Record: The Bush Administration’s Public Statements on Iraq. This report has received little attention, but it kept a running tab on the lies manufactured by the White House. A key paragraph reads as follows:
The Iraq on the Record database contains 237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice. These statements were made in 125 separate appearances, consisting of 40 speeches, 26 press conferences and briefings, 53 interviews, 4 written statements, and 2 congressional testimonies. Most of the statements in the database were misleading because they expressed certainty where none existed or failed to acknowledge the doubts of intelligence officials. Ten of the statements were simply false.
The Downing Street memo also made it clear that the war planners gave no thought to the vast damage and upheaval that the invasion would create in Iraq and how it would be remedied. According to the memo, “There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action.” Is it possible that the lack of discussion about the aftermath of the war explains why Iraq has become a blood-soaked basket-case of a country and a recruitment center for terrorists as a result of the U.S. invasion? Meanwhile, how many Americans are concerned about the origins of the war as well as its long-term effects?
Voters had problems figuring out who were the heroes. The press is much to blame. Countercurrents has some good writers. See www.countercurrents.org.
Durbin Gives Edwards More To Apologize For is one of their good articles. Edwards and Fred Thompson knew about the intelligence Durbin more or less says is a "slam dunk" against the war they voted for.
Inform Americans of what is going on this time. Please.
