    An interesting idea on the expanded coverage and the new KER Politics show.

    Wishing you guys all the best with the new show and it will be interesting to hear Ron Paul on this weekend’s show.

      GREAT idea CFS!

      I’m all for targeted shows (about any topic), but the posters & contributors will probably have more continuity of topic and discussions if the financial shows and economic shows have different comment sections.

      We are definitely doing this CFS. My genius friend, Cory, has it pretty well covered starting this weekend.

      Any editorials which we produce between now and then will, I believe, on the current site but clearly labeled.

    A tip of the hat to KE Report for the new show!

    I think this is a good idea but to tell the truth I am very discouraged about politics and the American people. I think we will see a further increase in government intrusion in our lives and wallets.

    And to be quite frank, a portion of this is just what the Amerikan sheeple want. Just look at local bond and tax increase measures. In the state I live in the vast majority pass. The sheeple willingly vote for their enslavement.

    The Amerikan people may not always like their rulers but they never question that they should be ruled. They truly believe government is their lord and savior and I don’t see that changing in my lifetime. Therefor I will not experience liberty in my lifetime.

    It’s getting to the point where liquidating assets into a non-country specific form of money is mostly stored outside the greedy hands of the resident country is going to be beneficial.

    I agree with Glen Downs. Voting will NOT save us. (If voting could change anything for the better voting would be outlawed as the old saying goes.) If you are realistic you know things are going to get worse in this country economically and socially.

    We must develop strategies to minimize the damage this corrupt system does to us. Some of the areas I would like discussed include

    Tax minimization/avoidance strategies

    Developing alternative income streams (possibly in the underground ecnomy)

    Self-sufficiency/living off grid

    How to avoid/deal with Obammycare

    Please comment on the theory that the media tells lies, not because those lies are passed to them by the government, but because people are evil and prefer lies over truth. Did the mainstream media CAUSE the people to become brainwashed to believe the lies they promulgate, or did the people CAUSE the mainstream media to parrot the lies that the people had already come to believe.

      There’s over a century-long history of increasingly sophisticated, scientifically-based propaganda aimed at the American people, starting with Wilson’s determination to involve the US in WWI. This is easily the most sophisticated propaganda system in human history. It is very clear that the mainstream media are owned by members of the oligarchy who use it to increase their wealth and power. Yes, they are successful partly b/c they tell people pleasant lies. But no, you can’t put primary blame on the masses, other than the unfortunate fact that it is human nature to be sheeple.

      Chomsky and Herman wrote ‘Manufacturing Consent’. There’s Bagdikian on media monopoly. McChesney. Or, if you wanted to go back in time, you could look into Edward Bernays, Walter Lippman, Jacques Ellul.

      A good look at the beginning of the American propaganda system can be found on youtube in the first hour of ‘Century of the Self’:

        There’s actually two books there. I should have made it much clearer.

        “The Real Lincoln” was published in 2002 and “Lincoln Unmasked” was published in 2006.

            Matthew says:

            Both are worth reading but either one is enough. I’d choose the second one, Lincoln Unmasked.

            Thanks. If you have not read “The Lost Cause” by E.A. Pollard, written 150 years ago, you would find it very illuminating, especially on Abe.

            Matthew says:

            Al, maybe all state-sponsored “historical literature is nothing more than the author’s perspective” but DiLorenzo’s books are based on an awful lot of facts. Abe’s actions prove what kind of guy he really was. The truth hurts.

    First Grandma Marian Robinson to Receive Lifetime $160K Government Pension

    Washington D.C. – First Grandma Marian Robinson, 79, will receive a lifetime 160K government pension when she leaves the White House next year, according to congressional budget statements.

    According to documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Mrs. Robinson earned the lifetime pension for “services rendered as full-time/in-home caregiver” for granddaughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15, during President Obama’s two terms in office.

    In January of 2009, it was reported that Mrs. Robinson was living in the White House full-time to tend to her granddaughters. She was the first live-in grandmother at the White House since Elivera M. Doud, the mother of Mamie Eisenhower, during the Eisenhower Administration.

        SNOPES IS RUN BY A MAN AND A WOMAN WITH NO BACKGROUND IN INVESTIGATION USING GOOGLE.

        Snopes-com has been considered the ‘tell-all final word’ on any comment, claim and email. Once negative article by them and people point and say, “See, I told you it wasn’t true!” But what is Snopes? What are their methods and training that gives them the authority to decide what is true and what is not? For several years people have tried to find out who exactly was behind the website Snopes-com. Only recently did they get to the bottom of it. Are you ready for this? It is run by a husband and wife team – that’s right, no big office of investigators scouring public records in Washington, no researchers studying historical stacks in libraries, no team of lawyers reaching a consensus on current caselaw. No, Snopes-com is just a mom-and-pop operation that was started by two people who have absolutely no formal background or experience in investigative research.
