    We keep waiting for the bust, the gigantic rollover of oil companies that just plain collapse under their own weight and the $50 price that you get for West Texas Intermediate. It hasn't happened. We keep waiting for the junk bond market that is riddled with $200 billion in oil and gas paper to be crushed by defaults and restructurings. It hasn't been.

    The ostensible purpose of gun control legislation is to reduce firearm deaths and injuries. The restriction of access to firearms will make criminals unable to use guns to shoot people. Gun control laws will also reduce the number of accidental shootings. Those are the desired effects, at least in theory. It is important, however, for conscientious policymakers to consider not only the stated goals of gun control regulations, but the actual results that they produce. What would be the effect of depriving ordinary, law-abiding citizens from keeping arms for self-defense? One result seems certain: the law-abiding would be at a...

    If Cramer is right about a sell-off coming early on Thursday, then that could be “your dream come true” to buy gold. See, according to US Global Investors—“the best source on gold that I know of,” Cramer said—the gold stocks have jumped an average of 8.34% each September for the past 17 years, making right now a great time to buy in. Investors always want at least some gold exposure in their portfolios, as it protects against inflation and overall market instability. But there’s another reason that Cramer’s bullish on the precious metal right now: scarcity. Most of the world’s...

Cramer appeared on CNBC's March 18 "The Kudlow Report," with his broadcast partner Larry Kudlow.

    A stunning upset victory by Republican Scott Brown in liberal Massachusetts’ Senate race Tuesday would unquestionably be a significant setback to President Obama’s agenda. It wouldn’t simply threaten Democrats’ health care plans; it would signal that a slippery slope of expanding government and inevitably much higher taxes might become somewhat less slippery. CNBC host and one-time Obama supporter Jim Cramer is talking up the chances of “a gigantic rally.” HMOs, medical device makers, banks, and Big Oil could all rally in expectation that “a more pro-business, less pro-labor government could be in front of us,” says Cramer.

The cable channel, along with its left-of-center sister network MSNBC, operates under the umbrella of NBC Universal. One openly liberal NBC network apparently isn’t enough. The left – from the White House to think tanks to bloggers – has targeted CNBC because of its traditional pro-investment point-of-view.

    Finance is not comedy and when it becomes that, the last laugh is on you. Cramer’s MAD MONEY is nothing more than a Sham Wow Show for the Stock Market. When Comedy Central starts sounding more authoritative than CNBC in its sobering observations about how the market got messed up, it's time to change out some of the "talent" and pseudo-experts at CNBC.

    Before he left CNBC's Jim Cramer in the dirt, Jon Stewart had pretty much knocked CNN's "Crossfire" off the air and drawn blood from Chris Matthews and Bill Kristol, among others. But he also played a role in helping to elect Barack Obama. Mainly it was through his show's withering and wicked mockery of President Bush and Vice President Cheney for several years, and much of the same directed at John McCain and Sarah Palin (Stewart suggested that she might be "tagged and released into the wilderness"). Here are just a few of Stewart's highlights for the final year of...

    In this CNN segment, Tucker Carlson dares to notice that John Stewart went after CNBC's Jim Cramer only after Cramer criticized Comrade Obama's budget. The reaction by CNN's panel of liberals is nothing less than fury. I think Stephanie Miller must believe that if she just keeps saying Stewart is funny, it may become true.
  • Jim Cramer: Skewered By Jon Stewart

    In the last two weeks, a Democrat and CNBC host, Jim Cramer, has suffered the wrath of his own political party in the same fashion as Joe the Plumber. This time, Jon Stewart of the Daily Show decided to attack Jim Cramer because Cramer dared to support Rick Santelli in his rant against Obama's unfocused resolution of the recession and the bailout of irresponsible borrowers. It was Joe the Plumber, in spades, all over again with Stewart focusing in on Cramer's stock picking faults and not on what he had said about Obama's policies. When it was all over, no...

    According to TVNewser, MSNBC hosts were asked NOT to comment on the CONFRONTATION between Jon Stewart and Jim Cramer. After all, MSNBC and CNBC are both part of the NBC parent company and money is at stake here. Therefore, NBC wanted as little attention paid to Cramer's pathetic performance defending himself on the Daily Show as possible. This was a moment of truth for Keith Olbermann who endlessly brags about speaking "truth to power." So did Olbermann pass the test? Well, I'll let this Daily Kos KOmmie THREAD, "Moment of Truth for Keith and Rachel coming up tonight" answer...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House's chief spokesman on Friday said he enjoyed watching "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart give a lashing to CNBC's Jim Cramer over how he and the business network have covered the collapsing economy. Cramer's Thursday appearance on Stewart's Comedy Central program garnered buzz that carried all the way to the White House briefing room. Press secretary Robert Gibbs said he had spoken with President Barack Obama on Thursday about watching the Stewart-Cramer showdown. "I forgot to e-mail and remind him that it was on, so I don't know if he's seen it," Gibbs said...
