An INTENSE moment of TRUTH with MAINSTREAM Media


Don't know if this has been posted before, im familiar with Dylan Ratigan, he's a decent guy, he is far better than most in the MSM, and this rant is pretty much right on target.

He just spent 3 minutes and 40 seconds bloviating...

about the symptoms ("extractions") when he could have cured the 'patient' in 1 second with just 3 words:


He could have used that time more effectively by just repeating that phrase. Perhaps then it would make an impression on the dolts that bother to watch or those paid shills who comprise the panel of this state controlled propaganda tool.

I think he would think par t of the praoblem is

wanting to burn the place down.. that means cut everything. This i not a pro dem or repulbican type message.. it is speaking to the corruption in DC.. not a POTUS canadate.. its not a Ron Paul ad.

Excellent rant.

Next time, if he could just mention the name of Ron Paul as the only one congressman around here to have realized the same things LOOONG AGO ...

... and that'd be the PERFECT (GOOD) RANT STORM.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

And the ONLY way that will ever happen is to END THE FED!

This should be THE NUMBER ONE priority we can all agree on. And I promise, I'll turn any doubter should they abdicate control of their money to ME, just as the FED does on a national level. This I'm certain of.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... If you're not for abolishing the FED than you're either ignorant or in on it.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.


What a rant! The best part were the people in the background...they didn't know what to do lol...

If it neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

Calling Ron Paul an isolationist is like calling your neighbor a hermit because he doesn't come on your property and break your windows.

What could they do? It was his moment...

to burst though their crepe-thin arguments with the truth. They were dumbfounded that he actually spoke the truth on TV, a violation of Party Doctrine. ..But they knew he was 101% right.

I like things Ratigan says but I dislike at least just as much, analytically money can be a problem, I agree.
But with that reasoning so can speech, so can ideas & if you get my drift so can freedom.
The freedom of a narcissistic maniac to infatuate a large number of people perhaps (Newt).
In my opinion just as we should not trade liberty for security we should not trade liberty for facility, we don't have the right to utopia we have the right to fight for something close to it with people like Ron Paul perching morality, principles, peace & love.

I wish I where more eloquent, but I hope you get my point.

"Give me Liberty or give me death." Patrick Henry

It's a pretty good break down of the problem

and the absolute rage associated with it.

But the solution he proposes to fix it ($2 trillion repatriated dollars at still unbelievably low interest) is not exactly a solution I'd advocate.

"It does not take a majority to prevail but rather an irate, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

--Samuel Adams

He forgets to mention

that the same people who bought the Congress also bought the President.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Hot Damn...Now that's what you call A RANT!!!

The RANT of TRUTH...Dylan Ratigan shines through.

I've seen this posted at least 3 times on here already...

lol I guess everyone likes Ratigan... He's in the top of reporting... too bad he doesn't start in the alternative media... cause lamestream just has those "press-stitues" who are all bought and paid for by the elites! So we can't buy them cause we can't afford...
I hope to change all this in the next few months...

Give the money to the

Give the money to the president (like Roosevelt)? May not exactly be want u think you're getting. There might be passion, but remember Anikin Skywalker?


He needs to meet DR PAUL.

I like his fire.

Dr. Paul has been on his show

more than once. I wish Dylan would have taken a moment in his theatrical rant to mention that Ron Paul is not, and has never been, for sale.

This is a good version Ratigan's Rant !

It shortens it and presents his salient points. Plus a little dramatic music never hurts.

Too bad this isn't played once a week on all TV channels.

I was watching this live the day he went off

Totally brilliant.

I sat there and my jaw dropped.

You NEVER see thermonuclear truth bombs dropped on Corporate Media the way he did ... and all in one long stream of consciousness at that.

From that day on Dylan has been on the top of my (very short list) of actual relevant, real independent thinking journalists on the tube.

I don't 100% agree with all of his solutions (outlined in his new book).

But when it comes to Getting Money Out of politics - I am on board with that all the way.

Its one of the few initiatives I support that are not Ron Paul campaign related.

"Getting money out of

"Getting money out of politics" is a naive pipe dream. The real trick is to get politics out of money.

Need to do both

It's equally a 'naive pipe dream' to think the Congress will ever approve ending legal tender laws and allowing competing currencies, like bill Dr Paul introduced.

They ignore and fight that, equally as much as they ignore and fight any attempts to significantly change campaign financing, lobbying, insider trading or anything else that has to do with their own power or money.

Does that mean we shouldn't try?

Of course not.

Both are equally important. Both are the key to taking our Republic back.

And both are equally unlikely to ever change short of a complete collapse of the current system, and a second American Revolution ending in Constitutional Amendment.

So, I'm not sure I follow your point.

I agree but it is better to

I agree but it is better to have a 2 pronged attack. My view is that once you get money out of politics it will be easier to get politics out of money. If the latter happens 1st that is just as well. A little bit of flexibility in getting from here to there will only speed up the process. Either one of those outcomes is better than what we have now.

My point is that whenever you

My point is that whenever you set up a power center, money will always flow there as people try to capture it.

There is no such thing as "getting money out of politics." It's like saying "getting air out of the atmosphere." It makes no logical sense.

getting money out of politics IS ron paul related

But RP isn't foolish enough to think that campaign finance reform, term limits, or lobbyists are the problem. the problem is character, the character of our representatives. And as RP says, our elected officials reflect US! We're morally bankrupt and we need to...repent. The great abolitionist, Wilberforce had two goals in his life: the abolition of slavery And the reformation of morals. We yet need the abolition of slavery and infanticide AND we still need the reformation of morals desperately. Laws will not change money's influence. Only moral fiber and that only comes from one source, acknowledged or not.

Ron Paul is foolish to think

Ron Paul is foolish to think that we can have a "moral" Congress. It just will not happen. Tempt them with money, and they will take it.

Love this rant!

Thank you for posting it. More people need to see this. He cuts straight through the nonsense that both parties regurgitate.

This is good material for

Ron Paul fan vids. Dylan rants so bad ass!

In Liberty

Dylan fights the good fight

I liked Dylan when he was the host on Fast Money, and when he lost that job three years ago because of his brutal honesty, I was delighted that he got his own show.

Dylan Ratigan has been on our side for years. He's one of the good guys.

He is a lot better than most

He is a lot better than most of the prestitutes

Just ran into it today

Figured i'd share it with you guys, that was a rant for the ages.

Has this guy endorsed RP? He

Has this guy endorsed RP? He is asking exactly for what RP would do.
