George Bush, of course.

We need to train all of them that they are not smart enough (!) to intervene in the market place. I swear that everyone elected to office gets a God Complex.

I arrived in the U.S at age 10 in 1967. I have seen ONLY one President in my life time talk about the G’ment being the problem.

The G’ment at ALL levels has increased. Republicans,Democrats, Ross PEROT - All have been for MORE G’ment. Both Bushes, Nixon have added to what the G’ment is to do for (TO) us.

Ted Cruz is the first to voice the Reagan doctrine “The G’ment is the problem”, Senator Paul also falls into this category.

We will see who is in the Republican primaries. In Texas those will be held in March 2014

I saw a little bit of that interview; I really lied Ted Cruz, even with the editing. I hope he does not disappoint by morphing into a lifer/RINO by staying in DC too long.

Given that, he should run in 2016 before he gets ruined by being in DC too long.

And the competition won't be that bad. In the next year or so, Marco Rubio should figure out that he would have better luck running for the nomination and winning the general election if he runs as a Democrat, because his competition would be Hillary, Joe Biden and maybe Anthony Weiner. Rubio doesn't look too bad compared to that line-up.

I too just watched the Ted Cruz interview. My take on the interview is much different than yours. Ted stood his ground, polite, like Reagen, and no words/actions that could have been easily taken out of context.

All of us take “wacko birds” as badges of courage/honor and the Ministry of Truth propaganda apparatchiks know and fear this

Good,hope I was wrong about the editing. I don’t ever want Ted Cruz to have a bad interview! I really like the guy.Just IMHO,I don’t trust any DBM network to tape his back and forth with a DBM interviewer and think that our side will get a fair shake.Its just not likely.

Interesting question. What will happen if Bernanke stops printing 85 billion per month with which to pay our humongous debt.
Will debt interest rates go up tanking the economy? I guess the bigger question is “when” does the regime want to tank the economy and why?

Juan McCain on Candy Crowley and in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost...do you know what he said?

He said the states need to look again at their “stand your ground” law. Evidently Arizona has such a law and Crowley, amazingly like the Journalist she mostly pretends to be, asks McCain if thinks Arizona should review their “stand your ground” law!

I got to wonder how the people of Arizona feel about that?

The law was evidently passed by the Arizona legislature and now that state’s Senator says they should consider revoking it?

They keep electing this guy....Father forgive them, they seem to know not what they do.

That’s been my biggest fear that it all explodes as they have planned and we get the blame for not being bi-partisan or some such crap. Economic basics are never discussed only need,want,desires other commie crap.100 million dollar vacations, 1.4 billion per year to run the WH,never even discussed.

Allow me to expand....

....McCain’s response to the Stand Your Ground question by Crowley was definitely a Democratic talking point. Somebody got McCain in a corner and asked him to please mention the Dem talking point about standing ground.

As y’all know, the trial of George Zimmerman had nothing to do with so-called Stand Your Ground laws. GZ’s defense did NOT use that defense in any way. Had Florida had not a Stand your Ground law the Zimmerman case would have ended the EXACT same way.

But the Dems they’re out and about this morn lambasting Stand Your Ground laws because some focus group or another thought taking a good look at those laws seemed prudent.

And here’s the guy WE nominated to run for President saying the same thing, when what he should say....I’ll say it for McCain....

“The Florida Stand Your Ground laws had nothing to do with the Zimmerman trial and questioning the validity of those laws might be wise for state legislatures to do as they should do with all state laws. But to argue that this law is somehow deficit and caused Trayvon Martin’s death is just disingenuous.

The jury has spoken in the case and if we are to accept America’s justice system we must move on.”

Instead our former presidential candidate AGREES with the Dem talking points.

and you wonder how the Blue Blood elite consistently fails us.

One such Dem pundit this morning said that Stand Your Ground laws were just repeats of existing laws, that they were totally unnecessary.

Not that the “Journalists” interviewing these liars mentioned the so-called “Hate” crimes laws and weren’t they too repeats of existing laws.

This sudden rush to “review” Stand Your Ground laws is a thinly disguised Dem gun grab, thank me very much for pointing that out to you.

George Zimmerman was having his head pounded into the ground; he HAD to save his life.

Stand Your Ground laws are a bit more nuanced and, again, did NOT apply to the Zimmerman case.

In general, those sorts of laws stipulate that if I were to be confronted in my own home, for example, by a burglar, that I am under no obligation to run, that I have a right to stand and protect myself, my family and my property.

They are using the Trayvon case to do another gun grab. While I’m willing to shrug it off as liberals run amok....do not forget...

JOHN MCCAIN AGREED WITH THIS GUN GRAB ON NATIONAL TV AND SAID HIS OWN STATE SHOULD TAKE ANOTHER LONG LOOK AT THE LAW!!!

If ever an example of how they are so out of touch, this is it.

Guess you didn't notice that near-Apocalypse the market had a couple weeks ago when Ben didn't send the morning fix.

JMHO, that was just a test to see how far the market would go before the wheels came totally off, the conclusion was Not Far At All and the only time anybody's even going to consider a repeat is if the scandals get so deep, it'll be the only distraction big enough to give 'em Get Out of Dodge time.

I think it’s interesting, as well as funny, that the Canadians who border Detroit want to install a giant fence to keep the riffraff of Detroit OUT of Canada. There are even areas within Detroit who want to put tall walls around their community to limit who can enter their area. We won’t see many stories about it but each one is funnier (sadder) than the ones proceeding it.

Now suppose the GOPe nominates another RINO—say Jeb Bush, and the democrats nominate Hillary! Rod-ham Clinton.

I doubt any RINO can beat her. In fact, I doubt if I will EVER vote for a RINO again myself. Oh, I won’t vote democrat, but I certainly won’t vote for Jeb Bush in any capacity.

But anyway, suppose Hillary! wins. Isn’t the pending MegaCrash hers then?

The second question is can the GOP EVER win with a RINO again? My answer to that would be NO.

So, we don’t get a Watch, right? (Even if a RINO wins, “we” don’t...)

You ain’t lyin!
Since I have been posting this thread beginning in 1998, I have seen a steady increase in the partisanship of the mainstream, driveby media. Part of what we do here on this thread is to document the abuse, lies, distortions, omissions, biased guests selection, no follow up questions to those the host favors (democrats/RINOs), grilling of those they disfavor (Conservative Republicans), etc., etc.

I don’t know how we can possibly overcome this. It just gets worse over the years. Consider the Zimmerman/Martin case if you want to see media bias in action.

All I can say is considering my screen name, the End Times have to be just around the corner


Enjoy the thread, your commentary, and the contributors....

Thanks for your devotion to educating and informing me, and others.

Well done.

This could be a big story and breaking news as well over 20 firetrucks at JPMorgan warehouse in NYC where their gold is stored. Supposedly an electrical fire going on there.
Lots of stories about what is really there and what is not and how their gold supply has gone down from 3 million ounces to about a ton and lost almost 2/3 of its value.
