    NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE           Brian Bolduc Author Archive    |    LatestJanuary 27, 2010 11:00 A.M. The Doddering Old PartyIs there a Scott Brown hiding out in Connecticut?  Call him “Senator.” Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut’s attorney general, beats his Republican opponents — Rob Simmons, Linda McMahon, and Peter Schiff — by 20 points in Rasmussen Reports’ latest poll. But some conservatives still think Blumenthal, who has never faced a serious challenge in his 27-year career, sports a glass jaw, and they’re looking for the prizefighter who can shatter it. Is there a Scott Brown hiding out in Connecticut? If so, who?...

    The numbers of the CT US Senate race. Public Policy Polling has just released their new numbers for CT-Sen. A stark contrast to what they had been. When Chris Dodd retired last night his seat went from one of the most vulnerable to one of the safest for Senate Democrats. Attorney General Richard Blumenthal leads all three of the Republicans in the race by at least 30 points in polling we conducted Monday and Tuesday night before Dodd's announcement. Blumenthal is unusually popular, especially in hyper partisan times when voters like few politicians. 59% have a favorable opinion of him...
  • Chris Dodd to step aside

    Washington Post ^ | Posted at 11:41 PM ET, 01/ 5/2010 | Chris Cilliza
    Embattled Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd (D) has scheduled a press conference at his home in Connecticut Wednesday at which he is expected to announce he will not seek re-election, according to sources familiar with his plans. Dodd's retirement comes after months of speculation about his political future, and amid faltering polling numbers and a growing sense among the Democratic establishment that he could not win a sixth term. It also comes less than 24 hours after Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) announced he would not seek re-election. State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is widely expected to step into the void...

    Campaign for Liberty ^ | 2009-12-31 | Peter Schiff
    In its recent look back on the first ten years of the century, Time Magazine proclaimed the period to be "the decade from hell." The editors made their case based on what they saw as the signature events of the last ten years, notably the ravages of terrorism, failed wars, and a global financial crisis. Taken together, these factors produced an era that Time is convinced will be remembered as one of the low points in our history. As the media hates to dwell on the negative, the commentary was rife with notes of optimism about pending recovery. It could...

    The Motley Fool ^ | December 11, 2009 | Jennifer Schonberger
    The Future of Gold, the Dollar, and MoreThe dollar has had a huge effect on the stock market's moves this year. As the dollar has depreciated, many stocks have climbed higher; the logic is that a weaker dollar will boost the bottom lines of companies such as McDonald's (NYSE: MCD), Aflac (NYSE: AFL), and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), all of which derive a substantial portion of their revenues from abroad. The depreciating dollar has also boosted commodity prices and associated commodity stocks such as Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE: FCX) or Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM), serving to lift the market. As we approach 2010,...

    The Hartford Courant ^ | 2009-11-05 | Daniela Altimari
    Peter Schiff's campaign website has been repeatedly targeted by cyber attackers, his brother and spokesman said this afternoon. The campaign has notified the FBI. Schiff, a Republican running for U.S. Senate, had planned a "moneybomb'' -- a one-day online fundraising blitz -- for today, but just minutes before midnight, when the moneybomb was set to start, the website went down, his brother, Andrew Schiff, said. "These are coordinated attacks,'' Andrew Schiff said in a brief phone interview. It wasn't the first time the website has been hit, Andrew Schiff said. The campaign had been targeted several times in the past...

    {snip} Currently, dollars account for about 62 percent of the currency reserve at central banks -- the lowest on record, said the International Monetary Fund. Bernanke could go down in economic history as the man who killed the greenback on the operating table. After printing up trillions of new dollars and new bonds to stimulate the US economy, the Federal Reserve chief is now boxed into a corner battling two separate monsters that could devour the economy -- ravenous inflation on one hand, and a perilous recession on the other. "He's in a crisis worse than the meltdown ever was,"...

    Safe haven /Europacific Capital ^ | October 02, 2009 | Peter Schiff
    For those market boosters who are prattling on about the possibility of a "jobless recovery," I offer an invitation to join me for a breakfast of "fat-free bacon," "eggless omelets," and "no-carb bread." As unappetizing as such a meal may sound, it would nevertheless offer more substance than the oxymoronic concept of an economic resurgence without job creation. Those who do cling to the absurd belief that, absent exponential productivity gains, the economy can expand while workers are being laid off will undergo a massive test of their convictions now that it's clear the employment picture is bleak. Today's weaker-than-expected...

    Unlike the "legitimate bull markets" of many foreign markets, Peter Schiff believes the U.S. is merely experiencing a "rally in a bear market," and is lagging the rest of the world "for a reason." The worst is not over, according to Euro Pacific Capital's Schiff, who predicts the Dow will fall another 90% from current levels when measured against gold. A longtime dollar bear and gold bull, he foresees gold hitting $5000 per ounce "in the next couple of years," and predicts the Dow and gold will trade on a one-to-one ratio vs. the current level of around 9.7-to-1. Schiff...

    Global Economic Trend Analysis ^ | 23 Sep 2009 | Mike "Mish" Shedlock
    I wholeheartedly endorse Peter Schiff for Senate. To understand why, in spite of previous differences between us, please consider the following compelling case, starting with a look at government bailouts, the moral hazards of too big to fail, the current rise in the stock markets, and the "great government advance" of corporate welfare and bailouts at taxpayer expense. Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor, Professor at Berkeley, discusses government intrusion in Why the Dow is Hitting 10,000 While Everyone Else is Cutting Back. So how can the Dow be flirting with 10,000 when consumers, who make up 70 percent of...

    Peter Schiff, a Waterbury money manager, author and financial pundit, today used "Morning Joe" as the platform from which to launch his much-anticipated bid to challenge Sen. Christopher Dodd. The announcement came as no great surprise. There have been multiple reports, it was teased on a twitter feed and a grassroots group of California liberatarians have been pushing for Schiff to run for months. "Smashed your TV? Fix it and tune into Morning Joe at 8:15 tomorrow morning!," Schiff tweeted yesterday afternoon. A Web site for Schiff's campaign is already up and running.

    The 2008 presidential campaign may be over, but the "revolution" spawned by Rep. Ron Paul's candidacy continues to echo through the political world. Paul (R-Tex.), capitalizing on a healthy distrust of government and his strident opposition to the war in Iraq, became an Internet phenomenon -- using the Web to raise an astounding $35 million for his long-shot candidacy. The financial network Paul built during his campaign has, amazingly, continued to reap dividends for two men seeking to be the congressman's political heirs in the 2010 elections. Rand Paul, who is running for the Senate in Kentucky and is the...

    Perpetual bear Peter Schiff contemplates a move into politics. Peter Schiff is offended. Nobody has ever contacted me from any of the congressmen to say, Hey, you saw this financial collapse coming, you nailed it exactly, he says, adding impatiently, I pretty much got it exact. If nobody from Washington wants to call him, Schiff figures, he will call Washington. I dont seem to be able to make a difference as a private citizen. No one there seems to care what I say, he complains. He plans to make them care by challenging Sen. Chris Dodd in 2010. People say...

    Peter Schiff turns on his computer and checks his fundraising numbers with the studied nonchalance other guys might display while perusing last night's box scores. It's a Friday in early August and Schiff's fans have set off a "money bomb" a 24-hour pledge blitz they hope will persuade him to run for the U.S. Senate seat held for almost 30 years by Christopher J. Dodd. Schiff, the Fairfield County stockbroker and author who has become YouTube's most popular prognosticator of financial doom, says he will make up his mind by Labor Day. But spurred on by a cadre of...

    Potential U.S. Senate candidate Peter Schiff has a very simple plan for Washington D.C. Get rid of the politicians. We need citizens, people who are in the private sector, to come to Washington, to really get a job done, and then to leave, Schiff told Newsmax TVs Dan Mangru. Individuals who become career politicians, such as his potential opponent Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn), are whats wrong with Congress in Schiffs opinion because eventually they get assimilated into Washington D.C. culture. Schiff points out that Dodd has never actually worked in the private sector, never ran a business, and has never...
