This David Stockman Quote Should Scare the Hell Out of Everyone

Is the US economy about to collapse worse the Greece’s? 

Some, like Paul Krugman, say that it’s okay for governments to print unlimited money.  Others, who have actually managed businesses, say otherwise.

ronald-reagan-david-stockmanDavid Stockman is among the latter.  He was Reagan’s budget director for a few years.  He became a media sensation because of his command of numbers.

He left the White House early, fretting over federal debt.  But debt in the 1980s was as a piggy bank to Wells Fargo.

In an interview with Business Insider, Stockman warned that America’s financial end is nigh, and that you better hope the Lord returns before it gets here.

Here's the heart of the matter. The Fed is a patsy. It is a pathetic dependent of the big Wall Street banks, traders and hedge funds. Everything (it does) is designed to keep this rickety structure from unwinding. If you had a (former Fed Chairman) Paul Volcker running the Fed today 7/8— utterly fearless and independent and willing to scare the hell out of the market any day of the week — you wouldn't have half, you wouldn't have 95 percent, of the speculative positions today. [Emphasis added]

The GOP is our best hope, but its candidates better get their brains around this, and fast.  I really don’t feel like spending the rest of  my life foraging for roots and wrestling nuts from a squirrel.

Is Bill Maher’s Vitriol Responsible for Arrest?

Last week, America’s sleaziest leftists—Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, E. J. Dionne, Paul Krugman, others – have executed a prepared BillMaherAngrypropaganda war against anyone who disagrees with them. Their theorem is: vitriolic rhetoric inspires conservatives to act out in violence.

Unfortunately for the loony left, there was no evidence to support their theorem.  The evidence they falsely pointed to—Jarod Lee Loughner’s deranged murder rampage in Tucson—was determined to be a lie only hours after the event.

Undaunted, Maher, Krugman, Donne, Matthews, and crew continued to lie, lie, lie, lie.  They refused to let go of their story, false though it was.

On Saturday, the leftist “rhetoric = violence” cult got something close to vindication.  Perhaps responding to the hateful, violent rhetoric from Krugman, Matthews, Maher, Dionne, and Olbermann, Tucson shooting victim and hard-left activist, J. Eric Fuller, was arrested for communicating a direct threat against a tea party leader in Tucson. (More at Michelle Malkin.)

Fuller issued the threat after photographing tea party leader Trent Humphries. (Was the photo’s purpose to help the hit man ID the target?)

If Krugman, Matthews, Olbermann, Maher, et al, were correct in their assessment of blame to conservatives, then Krugman, Matthews, Olbermann, Maher, et al, are at least as guilty of conveying a threat as Fuller.

But if Krugman, Matthews, Olbermann, Maher, et al, were wrong about rightwing rhetoric, than I am wrong about their culpability in Eric Fuller’s psycho moment.

I think there are only two people responsible for their criminal actions: Loughner and Fuller. But I think Krugman, Matthews, Olbermann, Maher, Dionne, et al, are guilty of exploiting tragedy and emotions to destroy their political opponents.
