"Ron Paul will try to use the Fed as his personal punching bag."

Amen to that. Maybe these jokers should be included in the boxing lesson! They should invite Ron Paul on as a guest.

Besides that comment, another one-sided worthless smear interview.

These people not only swallowed the Kool-Aid...

they swallowed a lot of something else, if you know what I mean. Their knees look awfully raw.

"we'll go back to horse drawn

"we'll go back to horse drawn carriages before we go back to a gold standard."

that's looking more and more truthful every day.

the woman is clueless...she's

the woman is clueless...she's like "a bunch of crazy people are upset because I didn't write about the FED, what's wrong with them ?"

"Don't fight the FED"?

Greg Valliere seems like an idiot. Maybe a financial company doesn't want to go against the Fed, but the American people have all the right to both provoke them and fight them!

..that was indeed quite

..that was indeed quite cryptic..lol

My Email to Mr. Fretto:

Dear Mr. Fratto:

Thank you so much for your support in keeping the dollar afloat. I saw your interview with CNBC on December 3rd, and I just can't express how excited I am that you are an analyst for that network. Your comments were poignant, pertinent, and very well-spoken. It was almost as if you knew nothing about the U.S. financial system at all-- very coy of you. My one and only wish is that more level-headed and intelligent people such as yourself keep on filling he airwaves with reason to let everyone else know what is truly going on. We need your help in keeping the dollar afloat for two or three more years before it crashes into nothing and the Chinese RMB becomes the world reserve currency. I am sure not excited for that day! :)

Keep doing what you're doing! I think you are the best financial figure the United States has to offer. Who the heck is this crackpot Ron Paul guy who has been studying Economics for 50 years kidding anyway? If guys like him who have devoted their whole lives to U.S. financial markets can get into a position of power, then what could possibly be next? God forbid we see that day...

Very Sincerely,

Mr. Kevin Conner


Happiness is found alone on a gravel road.


Well done!

Good job!

well written.


Definition of clueless?

Ron Paul's Chairmanship will alter the perception of the FED & thats dangerous!

This is just nonsense

Who are these people...

I am stupider than I was 4:57 seconds ago...

He is proud of what Ben Bernanke has done?? LOL what exactly did Ben do? Except inflate the currency and steal wealth form the people?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

His client got FedRes bailouts?

The Federal Reserve has been buying influence since 1913.

Perhaps they should vet their analysts first.

Didn't CNBC get a buttload of

Didn't CNBC get a buttload of money from the Fed? Hm...no conflict of interest here.

"The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that." — Alan Greenspan

All I know

is that the anchor is a total babe. Did she say something about the Fed? Hmm, gonna have to watch again ;-)

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

I'd hit it for sure, oops, I mean....





She's actually probably the worst looking anchor they have. You would probably have a massive coronary over Erin Burnette...

Plus Bloomberg's anchors makes CNBC anchors look like medical experiments lol

It is remarkable

...how far the Liberty Movement has come since '07. It's probably not enough to restore our republic but it gratifying nonetheless.

Yeah, yeah, we get the message

"If you're a REAL Republican, you'll stand with your fellow Republicans and oppose Ron Paul's appointment as chairman! It's the popular thing to do- everyone else is doing it, and you don't want to be WEIRD do you?!"

I HATE that people are so easy to control, that that cr*p actually WORKS.

The constant flashing of little tidbits like, "Ron Paul is crazy," "Fed is good," "Ron Paul out of line"...how can people STAND being so obviously brainwashed?

One word...

NFL (et al). Boobus not only likes being led around, he doesn' mind goons stomping on his fellow man

This is awesome...

This segment shows CNBC's hardcore/extremist pro-Fed Reserve interest, an interest that this network is *committed* to defend until the end.

Very glad someone brought up a financial clip like this, because I often look at financial news as THE primary indicators of major movements on the ground. And there is another reason why financial news can still afford to be so brazen in their power elite message... only a certain small segment of the population watches it regularly.

One final thing, anyone at all notice the "hate-mail" victimization speech that begins at 2:40 in this clip? Both the host and the guests used the word "hate". It was used twice by the host, and once by one of the guests *within one minute*.. During this timeframe, the host describes anti-Federal Reserve people as "a sub-strata of society" ....LOL

This is a very important clip and really should be on the front page. MSM financial news like this is really one of the best insights into power elite intent.

Be careful how you lump people ...

Rick Santelli is not afraid to publicly scald his fellow pundits.

Also, this network once was built around Dylan Ratigan, another personality that did not have a problem with speaking his mind.

Having said that, until very recently (less than a few months) this network was owned by GE ...

And did anybody notice that the FED was throwing cash at them at the height of the crisis.

Negative ghostrider...

Sorry man, but I watch enough of this network to know quite a bit better than that...

Rick Santelli: Grandstander. Claims to have literally founded the Tea Party. (no I'm not joking about this) Talks a lot of good stuff, then tells you that it's stupid to want to get rid of the Federal Reserve. He's done in my book.

Rattigan: Good guy. That's why he left CNBC. Now, "built around Rattigan"... that's a pretty big stretch, but either way it's immaterial.

Lol ...

Did that guy just say that about 100 years ago William Jennings Bryan, in his "cross of gold" speech attacked the FED?

Where does he get his facts?

First of all the speech took place at the Democratic Convention in 1896. Anybody see anything wrong with that?


William Jennings Bryan was

William Jennings Bryan was for bimetallism which the Dr. has spoken out against. Not a good comparison.

Why didn't they mention the new FED releases? Hacks and Schills are beginning to look comical. I was watching the Kudlow Report and one guy said the FED is going to save the day.. some greasy guy that wants to get access to the newly created credit. These criminals are showing their drool.

The timeline he said also

The timeline he said also made me pause. Thanks for following up on that.

Why shouldn't he be wrong about the "Cross of Gold" Speech?

Since he likes the Fed, he's wrong about everything else.
This was possibly the dumbest remark made by a media "expert" since Phylis George asked Billy Crystal about how Fernando Lamas liked Crystal's "You look mah-vo-lus" routine. Crystal responded, sheepishly, "Fernando Lamas is dead."

WJB was advocating for a type of fiat currency ...

A defacto silver standard designed to create inflation.

Exactly the opposite of what Dr. Paul is advocating.

How do these people get away with this junk?
