Palin's "Crony Capitalism" Mantra Gets "60 Minutes" Boost
RealClearPolitics ^ | November 14, 2011 | Scott Conroy

Posted on 11/14/2011 3:16:03 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

If Sarah Palin had run for president, Sunday night's episode of "60 Minutes" likely would have marked a significant moment for her campaign.

In the venerable CBS News program's opening segment, Hoover Institute fellow and Palin adviser Peter Schweizer previewed his forthcoming book, "Throw Them All Out," which details allegations of legal, yet ethically dubious insider trading and conflicts of interest among members of Congress.

“There are all sorts of forms of honest graft that congressmen engage in that allow them to become very, very wealthy,” Schweizer told correspondent Steve Kroft. “So it's not illegal, but I think it's highly unethical, I think it's highly offensive, and wrong.”

Schweizer has been described in various news reports as a “foreign policy adviser” and a “speechwriter” for Palin. In fact, he is both of those things, and far more than that.

Though he has managed to stay largely under the radar until now, Schweizer’s influence on Palin since joining her staff last spring has been profound.

When Palin was still mulling a presidential run back in September, she delivered a closely watched speech in Iowa that served as a preview of sorts for Schweizer’s new book. In the speech, it was the former Alaska governor’s references to “crony capitalism” and “the permanent political class” that picked up the most attention -- buzz phrases that appear near the very beginning of Schweizer’s new tome....

Did you notice how it became part of the discussion in the last debate?

She makes a single statement, and it changes the political landscape.

That’s not going to change.

Just because she decided not to run for president... that’s not going to change.

She is the premier voice in the American political discussion, and that’s not going to change.

You know what it reminds me of... the scene in Schindler’s List, where they shoot the engineer who told them that the barracks would collapse if they didn’t tear it down and start again.....and then they do precisely what the engineer told them to do.

This is all good and well to bitch about until we repeal the law that allows it.

Even my guy, Perry, doesn’t need to be yapping about it until a plan to abolish it it outlined by everybody.

The Obama administration exhibits the most egregious examples of crony capitalism that the world have ever seen. GE is the number one crony partner of the Obama administration and Shepherd Flats wind farm is just one example.

Out in WA state we have a Gateway Coal Terminal that Patty Murray wants funded through Obama’s jobs bill. The company that will operate the terminal is SSA, which employs Murray’s husband and is run by the ILWU. Goldman Sachs is the majority stakeholder in the project.

Green Energy is nothing but a series of crony capitalist partnerships like Solyndra.

That’s what I’m wondering as well...

Cain is stumbling, badly, regarding foreign policy, which, like it or not, DOES matter. Any hope I had for Rick Perry ended in 53 seconds last week and I WILL NOT pull the lever for Romney, no matter what happens.

Could Palin jump in now and get the necessary delegates? Can we force a food fight at the convention? : )

Yep, it was one of her greatest assets as a candidate. She didn’t just “debate well;” she gave shape and direction to the debate, and in such a way that multitudes of ordinary people could see it with clarity. She is sorely missed.

But then there is Newt Gingrich.

Back in September, Gingrich was the GOP candidate who most directly praised the anti-crony capitalism sentiment that Palin espoused in her Iowa address, calling it “a very, very important speech” that raised “a series of very profound questions.”

Palin has publicly praised Gingrich’s debate performances in recent weeks...

In the absence of Palin I continue to believe our best hope to put a genuine conservative in the WH is Cain, imperfections notwithstanding. I credit his malapropisms to being out of his element and on a pretty steep learning curve. When he’s on his game he’s good enough.

Could Palin jump in at the last? I suppose it’s a remote possibility, but I don’t think she would do it, especially if Not-Romney looks likely to get the nomination close to the end. She’ll leave well enough alone. IMHO.

A lib family member (most families have one) emailed a link about "Welfare for Millionaires" - attempting, of course, to 'educate' me about the evil rich... He should know better ;o) - 'haven't heard from him since my reply

(I only bother when HE instigates. My reply -

Farm subsidies is one of the biggest frauds ever devised to funnel money to buddies - big donors and politicians. It's disgusting. All they have to do is buy a piece of land and then get paid - more often than not - for NOT planting.

And "Crony Capitalism" - through paybacks to big donors - through their lobbyists. Lobbyists are another layer of gov't - they need to be gotten rid of. Our 'representatives' are supposed to be directly dealing with WE THE PEOPLE - FOR the people, not big business through lobbyists. Crony Capitalism is Capitalism turned on it's head.

When Sarah Palin named it "Crony Capitalism", a lot of people who hadn't a clue, caught on. It isn't Capitalism that's the problem. It's the criminal buddy-buddy between big business and politicians. Big business has 'owned' our politicians for decades - and used them for protection from competitors who come up with a better product that, if put on the market, would threaten their bottom line.

I think the "Tucker Torpedo" was a prime example. The Tucker Torpedo was so far advanced, compared to the "Big Three" - that there would have been SERIOUS competition. Absolutely disgusting what those senators got away with in blocking the "TP" from being put on the open market - and THEN they were allowed to steal his engineering improvements and use them on THEIR cars/ Time to watch the movie again....;) "Tucker, The Man and His Dream". It was very good - and eye opener. A PERECT example of Crony Capitalism.

The Tucker Torpedo - 1948

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/71/Trucker_Car.jpg

With true Capitalism, entrepreneurs come up with an idea, start a business and it sinks or swims on it's own...government stay to hell out of it. Real capitalism has been strangled in this country for decades. (It's mind-boggling to think of all the inventions that we have NOT benefited from because of this protection racket. Or even products on our store shelves. The BIG companies buy '"face space" on the shelves. the more money, the more space for THIER products, pushing the little guys off the shelves - who may have a better product but cannot afford to compete for 'face space.' )

Innovative design features that the "Big Three" of Detroit, stole (and still in our cars today) after they got their cronies in the Senate to block him from production. - new engineering features included: . Magnesium wheels, disc brakes, fuel injection, self-sealing tubeless tires, and a direct-drive torque converter transmission - etc

CRONY CAPITALISM: Capitalism turned upside down.

"Capitalism: the Unknown Ideal"

http://www.amazon.com/Capitalism-Ideal-Ayn-Rand/dp/0451147952/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1321202372&sr=8-12

I do wonder, however, getting back to the article you cite, if instead of taxing the millionaires (JOB CREATORS) out of their hides, mighten they instead not collect social security. Social SECURITY was meant for just that. To assure people had a roof over their heads and food on the table. For those who retire as millionaires, they do not need the pittance in SS. BUT, it would be a perfect vehicle for the the uber rich to 'contribute' to society. Forfeit the amount they paid into SS - and they DO NOT pay into it based on their total income. There's a cut off on the rate of income they actually pay on. So most of their income is SS deduction free. And they shouldn't need medicare. They can afford their own insurance. That would go a long way towards SS being solvent -

that and doing what Newt Gingrich says - Take that two plus trillion dollars that belongs, right now, to the SS funds and get it the hell out of the general funds where the politicians can't keep stealing from it. I think it was Lyndon Johnson that grabbed it and put it into the general fund. It does not belong there. That's where our income taxes go - SS is NOT supposed to. Like Newt says, get rid of the medicare fraud and put the SS money back where it belongs, and SS is solvent.

Crony Capitalism has to go. Flush it down the toilet with the lobbyists. How did it ever get so prevalent?

When Truman left office, he and Bess climbed in their own car, him behind the wheel, and drove themselves home to Missouri to live in the house he grew up in...no lifelong pension/benefits...no Secret Service for life.

I'd like to see someone write an investigative book on how the DC elite got such inflated largess from the Truman years to now.

I miss Palin’s energy in the race. She drew massive crowds everywhere she went.

I was at the Indianola speech in September, and it was a clear vision of what needed to be done to change course.

She is the only one with the proven track record of tackling crony capitalism head-on. Fearless.

The folks we have left running just do not inspire.

I’m not attacking Newt necessarily but pointing out that it takes rare people like Sarah or others who actually have a real record of going against their party in cronyism in tackling cronyism widespread. No one is going to take Newt seriously on this issue when he talks about be abuse his hands has been in it do deep and only when he’s running for President is he bring out the issue

“crony capitalism”?

WTFU (Wake TF Up). It’s cronyism, crony fascism, or crony socialism. Control the language.

DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.

DEPOPULATE socialists and RINOS (Republicans Implementing Nuances Of Socialism) from Congress.

http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/index.cfm?sectionid=71&sectiontree=2,71

Legislatures (state and federal) could be part-time jobs with 1/10th pay, NO retirement, NO insurance, NO benefits and NO perks. These POS politicians can get a full time job doing something productive not progressive.
Their part-time job could be spent DEFUNDING/DISMANTLING socialist collectives, foreign and domestic (our government in particular).

—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Alter it.

Above all, if you wish to be strong, begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation. This will be no light task. - Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850

I’ll bet Sunday night’s episode wouldn’t have ever seen the lights, camera, action had she run. Ludicrous to say they’d have given her a boost.
