POLITICAL: Media Bias a la Candy Crowley


Joe Trippi: Crowley ‘Correcting’ Romney on Libya Looked Like ‘The Ref Just Threw the Flag’

Conceivably the biggest moment in Tuesday’s presidential debate was when moderator Candy Crowley injected herself into the discussion siding with Barack Obama on remarks he claimed he made in the Rose Garden following the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Against my better judgment, I watch the second debate because the Yankees were hopeless.

As all the “conservative” pundits predicted, Ms. Crowley couldn’t help but pile in on her “team’s side”.

I thought that wasn’t permitted by the rules of engagement?

And, what’s more she was WRONG!

Liberal bias!

Took the UN Ambassador on the TV circuit with a misleading at best story. Took the White House a week to walk it back and only after that DoI guy told to the truth to Congress. (You could almost hear the conversation right out of that Jack Ryan movie. “I ain’t going to jail. I’m the guy who always goes to jail.”) And BHO44 didn’t concede it until he was on the View.


I can make some small allowance that perhaps it MIGHT be in the nation’s strategic interest to keep stuff quiet.

(For example, if I was Prez, I would not have illed Bin Laden. He’d be in an undisclosed location with some nasty folks asking tough questions. And, even when presented with the downed helicopter, I’d lie to the TV and say ‘wasn’t us’. Stragteically. I also threaten anyone who did toe the party like with an assignment to be Presidential liaison with the Base Commander in Sitka Alaska. And, call the commander and have him in a cube at the end of the longest runway counting seagulls for his daily report.)

But in this case, I think this was al about CYA for the BHO44 reelection and nothing else.

Can “We, The Sheeple” see through the media bias and recognized a failed foreign policy?

MONEY: Commodities tell us that the politicians are lying. (What’s news there?)


Riding Into the Sunset or a Brick Wall?

If everyone starts to carry rolls of cash everywhere, it’s not a big leap to carry coins. A silver coin the size of a dime is currently worth about $3.50. Two could buy you lunch.

As someone, who remembers 29 cent per gallon gas — with a glass, trading stamps, and a guy to wipe the window, it’s not a far stretch to imagine a country using gold and silver coins as money.

Paper should be bank warehouse receipts. No fractional reserve banking should be permitted.

We shouldn’t let the elite effete political class define money. Money should be a weight of something. The free market will assign it a value.

In the debate Ron Paul gave a classic line about “in the Sixties, three silver dimes would buy a gallon of gas and those same three silver dimes would buy more gas now”. Still true. Even in California.

Now if you are reading this, just ask yourself: “What’s changed?”

Three silver dimes = gallon of gas in 1960’s = more than a gallon of gas in 2012.

Yet, gas is now over $3 per gallon. 5 in California.

What’s changed?

Could it be that the value of the dollar has changed? Not the value of silver or gasoline?

What’s the yardstick?

This makes the case that gasoline is actually CHEAPER now.


And, the politicians tell us there is no inflation!

No wonder the oil sheiks are screaming like stuck pigs. They are getting robbed like the rest of us.
