    No one plans to dress up like Indians and dump tea into the James River, but a few Founding Fathers will be present when anti-tax protesters gather at Kanawha Plaza on April 15 to hold a "Tax Day Tea Party." Part of a nationwide movement, Richmond organizers have recruited hundreds of volunteers to conduct skits, listen to speeches and voice protests against high taxes and big government spending. Nationally, more than 300 such rallies are scheduled on April 15, according to the National Taxpayers Union. In Virginia, "tea party" rallies also are scheduled in Abingdon, Charlottesville, Franklin County, Lynchburg, Peninsula/Newport...

    With the economy suffering a steep downturn and a new hands-on approach by the federal government to correct it, financial news outlets have received increasing scrutiny. None more so than CNBC. 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. After a few weeks of criticism, the network seems to be taking the criticism to heart and making a big left turn....

    Both have loyal following, but their fans are on opposite sides of the political spectrum.

    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...

    White House press secretary Robert Gibbs smiled and waved his hands when asked if he was ready to put an end to his battle with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. “If your enemies are fighting themselves, then don’t get in the way,” Gibbs said. Gibbs, in an interview with The Hill, acknowledged that the response was a “crude paraphrase” of a passage from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. But given the former Senate aide’s penchant for battles, it’s not surprising he’s familiar with it. President Obama’s spokesman and confidant simply characterizes his battles with Limbaugh and CNBC commentators Rick...

Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs’ contemptuous comment came in response to a question from Chip Reid of CBS suggesting that the administration had retooled the plan in light of the “backlash that a lot of people had, not just on cable, but a lot of people had, fearing that people who behaved badly will be rewarded.” Before Reid could finish his...

As Noel Sheppard noted on March 1, the skin mag published a piece claiming that Santelli was part of a vast right-wing conspiracy to protest Obama's socialist policies. It turns out, however, that the story has been proven false and in response Playboy has mysteriously removed the piece that first raised the question of the grand conspiracy. Happily, the facts have won over on Playboy forcing it to pull...

    The anti-stimulus demonstrations that began about two weeks ago moved Friday to more than 35 cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. They have been dubbed the "Nationwide Tea Parties," after CNBC commentator Rick Santelli's suggestion in a recent spirited diatribe. They are enthusiastic affairs, but relatively modest so far. The largest one, in St. Louis, may have attracted 1,000 protesters. Most drew no more than 200 to 300. It remains to be seen if the movement will gather more steam.

    In his inaugural address, President Obama heralded the arrival of a “new era of responsibility.” Apparently, this was a slip of the tongue, really meaning an “era of irresponsibility.” By his actions, Obama is pushing irresponsibility by picking winners and losers, punishing those who have worked hard and saved, while rewarding those who bought houses they could not afford and made bad business decisions. In other words, President Obama is an enabler.

    I was interviewed by several journalists last week about Rick Santelli’s Rant — my exact quote was it had a “Faux” feel to it. (I haven’t seen it in print yet) What was so odd about this was that Santelli is usually on the ball; we usually agree more often than we disagree. He’s been responsible for some of the best moments on Squawk Box. But his rant somehow felt wrong. After we’ve pissed through over $7 trillion dollars in Federal bailouts to banks, brokers, automakers, insurers, etc., this was a pittance, the least offensive of all the vast sums...

    ...What we discovered is that Santelli’s “rant” was not at all spontaneous as his alleged fans claim, but rather it was a carefully-planned trigger for the anti-Obama campaign. In PR terms, his February 19th call for a “Chicago Tea Party” was the launch event of a carefully organized and sophisticated PR campaign, one in which Santelli served as a frontman, using the CNBC airwaves for publicity, for the some of the craziest and sleaziest rightwing oligarch clans this country has ever produced. Namely, the Koch family, the multibilllionaire owners of the largest private corporation in America, and funders of scores...

    President Obama on Saturday struck back aggressively at critics of his $3.6 trillion budget proposal, casting himself as a populist crusader whose "sweeping change" has angered Washington's entrenched special interests, and promised to fight them. "I realize that passing this budget won't be easy. Because it represents real and dramatic change, it also represents a threat to the status quo in Washington," Mr. Obama said in his weekly video and radio address. Mr. Obama's language was combative and confrontational, as he promised to fight for "American families." "I know these steps won't sit well with the special interests and lobbyists...

We need more of this political accuracy in our media. We don’t need the “sheeple” (sheep people) who proclaim to be journalists and commentators but...

    President Barack Obama's first budget includes $15 billion a year for renewable energy programs and an ambitious plan to raise $646 billion from a carbon reduction proposal. "Because our future depends on our ability to break free from oil that's controlled by foreign dictators, we need to make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy," Mr. Obama said Thursday morning. "That's why we'll be working with Congress on legislation that places a market-based cap on carbon pollution and drives the production of more renewable energy." The plan uses money from a cap-and-trade program — which would allow companies to...

Larry Kudlow has a program called The Kudlow Report. It's at seven p.m. on CNBC. He's talking with Democrat Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania last night. Kudlow says, "Are the Democrats, your party, in danger right now? Are they on the edge of relapsing back to a 1967, 1907 style of big government spending, welfare entitlement? Is that a danger? Has your party relapsed into that old big-spending label?" Now, here's a montage...

    'People have to show that they're not going to take it anymore.' BY DREW ZAHN Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., a staunch opponent of the federal government's increase in size and spending legislated by President Obama's stimulus package, has issued a call for Americans to stand up – literally – and take back their freedom. "I would think it's time to start thinking about peaceful demonstrations," DeMint said in an interview with Georgia's Augusta Chronicle. "The power of the people is there. Freedom is in the people's hands right now, and it's about to slip through." DeMint lobbied his fellow Senators...

    When CNBC’s Rick Santelli argued last week that President Barack Obama’s mortgage bailout plan would force hardworking Americans to pay for their neighbors’ mistakes, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs dismissed him as a know-nothing derivatives trader out of touch with Main Street. But if the White House simply dismisses Santelli’s point, it may do so at its peril: A Rasmussen poll released Monday found that 55 percent of those surveyed thought federal mortgage subsidies to those most at risk of losing their homes would be “rewarding bad behavior.” Santelli’s “Network”-style diatribe has already spawned a Facebook group and plans...

    CNBC reporter Rick Santelli, whose passionate rant about the Obama housing rescue plan, and call for a "Chicago Tea Party" became a viral internet video, was arrested today by armed officers from the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) covert special forces division. Held without bail at an undisclosed "brownfield site", Santelli faces several counts of reckless endangerment of wildlife habitat after he threatened to rally capitalists to dump "derivative securities" into Lake Michigan as a way of re-enacting the Boston Tea-Party protest of 1773. "Mr. Santelli is certainly entitled to his wacky economic opinions," said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, "But...

    There are a couple of things that you should know about if you have a queezy, "What-in-the-hell-are-these-idiots-doing-now?" feeling in the pit of your stomach about the so-called "second leg of the economic stool" (the mortgage rescue plan). The first features CNBC financial reporter Rick Santelli's self-described "rant" over his anger and rejection of Obama's mortgage bailout. As Larry Kudlow notes, Santelli said: Reporting from the Chicago commodity pits, my CNBC colleague Rick Santelli unleashed a torrent of criticism against this scheme. Santelli said: “Government is promoting bad behavior. . . . Do we really want to subsidize the losers’ mortgages?...

    President Obama will pledge Tuesday night that the nation "will rebuild, we will recover," as he delivers an address to a joint session of Congress and with a nervous nation watching at home. "While our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken; though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this: We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before," Mr. Obama will say, according to excerpts of his remarks. In lofty language, Mr. Obama is expected to promise a new path forward...

    see link below 1) Clearly, CNBC reporter Santelli tapped into something last week with his housing harangue from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. A YouTube video of Santelli has been downloaded more than half a million times, and commentary on the diatribe is burning up the blogosphere. He even made Meet the Press. Lots of pundits are comparing him to Howard "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" Beale, the crazed anchorman from the 1976 film "Network." But there is a big difference, I think. Beale was telling anesthetized TV viewers to...
