Ber Ben

Cranky

He lost it a long, long time ago...

His hair, his mind, his credibility...

The only thing he has left to lose is his job.

I saw the best minds of my generation, destroyed by pandas starving hysterical naked

This stuff it is useless and gives a bad name to WAC.org

1) This kid is picking fights with everyone and just trying to antagonize while accomplishing NOTHING. Want to focus some attention on REAL reporting that accomplishes A LOT, I would dare say even heroic? Follow BEN SWANN and look at how he approached Obama. Now THAT is gutsy, in your face reporting that gets somewhere. Watch Matt Lee, that is the right way of doing it. Running after Rand or busting in private parties, throwing out an aggressive question to these criminals and then getting thrown out (obviously) accomplishes nothing.

2) Regarding Rand, anyone bitching about Rand not being good enough because he's not as pure as Ron is completely blind and just doesn't understand what's going on. Rand is one of our best positioned and strongest allies in the fight for liberty, he deserves our ENTIRE support.

Strongly Disagree

Watching them avoid questions about the Bilderberg and about their policies makes them squirm. That sends the message that the people are waking up and not standing idly by. I still say that when someone from the NY Times (Jill Abramson) is unwilling to discuss Bilderberg, that's pretty disconcerting (Charlie Rose, while not NY Times, is another). The media is supposed to represent the people by asking hard questions to the establishment. I didn't know who Matt Lee was until today when I saw that video but I have great respect for him now. However, look at how his question was just brushed aside. Luke's style is more "in your face" but I'm grateful for it because if the establishment isn't forced to speak up then they'll happily keep silent (as will the complicit MSM).

I am a big fan of Ben Swann but I thought he was too polite to Obama during that interview. I wanted follow-up questions that didn't just let Obama off the hook. Obama said he didn't want the "Americans can be detained under the NDAA" provision but, from what I understand, Obama SPECIFICALLY demanded that. As for Al-Awlaki (an American citizen who Obama did kill without a trial), Obama played it off as "I don't discuss specific stuff regarding national security". Why didn't Ben Swann reply back with "what about Al-Awlaki's 16 year old American son?"

My overall point is that TPTB will take as much slack as our media allows them to. In other words, if the interviewer doesn't follow up then TPTB will just leave the public with their well-rehearsed responses. I don't want a series of memorized speeches. I want to hear a real response. Ron Paul criticizes himself for not being a great speaker. However, he's also the only one who doesn't have a memorized response. He doesn't duck questions. He doesn't pull the Mitt Romney "you get to ask the questions how you'd like, I get to answer them how I'd like".

ALINSKY MARGINALIZATION TACTIC:
"This stuff it is useless and gives a bad name to WAC.org"
ALINSKY MARGINALIZATION TACTIC OBJECTIVE:
Designed to drive a wedge between Luke and the rest of WRC. The tactic should be familiar to many "Paulbots" here, as the same technique was successfully used to coerce many republicans away from Ron Paul.

NAME-CALLING:
"This kid"

CORRECT:
"is picking fights with everyone and just trying to antagonize"
TRUTH:
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT OUR GROGGY REPUBLIC NEEDS!!!!!!!!!!

FALSE:
"while accomplishing NOTHING."
TRUTH:
Luke (A) draws a contrast between MSM SCRIPTED SOFT "questions," and REAL questions. (B) EXPOSES DECEPTIVE PEOPLE, by showing their greasy reactions - either anger (Bernanke), evasion (Rand), pompousness (Wasserman) or silent, stupid grins (Gingrich). (C) Encourages OTHERS to bravely follow suit.

CORRECT:
"Ben Swann"
TRUTH:
Swann is a FRIGGIN WARRIOR with (here's the important part) SCHEDULED INTERVIEWS. Luke, being alt media, CANNOT GET SCHEDULED INTERVIEWS.

LIE:
"Running after Rand or busting in private parties, throwing out an aggressive question to these criminals and then getting thrown out (obviously) accomplishes nothing."
TRUTH:
Again, it EXPOSES DECEPTION. For example, Rand "playin' the game" Paul's silence (ONLY AFTER he was "made" by the Establishment GOP) makes him look as slimy as the leftist Constitution-SHREDDERS he now supports and endorses.

LIE:
"anyone bitching about Rand not being good enough because he's not as pure as Ron is completely blind and just doesn't understand what's going on."
TRUTH:
Actually, "understanding" IS THE SOURCE OF THE ANGER! Rand's "infiltration" SCAM has been played OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER! Whether the Reagan "infiltrators," the 90's "infiltrators" Gingrich, Boehner and Santorum, the Christian Coalition "infiltrators," the "tsunami infiltrators" West, Bachmann, Rubio... IT'S ALL THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!! BIGGER GOVERNMENT AND LESS FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!

FALSE:
"Rand is one of our best positioned and strongest allies in the fight for liberty"
TRUTH:
REPUBLICAN Rand is one of the leftist republican party's strongest assets to CO-OPT the Liberty Movement, just like REPUBLICANS Dick Armey, Palin, Beck, Scott Brown, West, Bachmann, Rubio, etc, co-opted the Tea Party. The republican party is a CANCER! It kills EVERYTHING IT TOUCHES! Well... except for Ron Paul.

SUGGESTION:
"he deserves our ENTIRE support."
SUGGESTION REJECTED:
HELL TO THE NO! As a Constitutional Libertarian, I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER vote/support Rand "playin' the game" Paul.

So much aggression....

I'm from Canada, been sending money, educating myself, educating others, growing my understanding and committing a big part of my life to the cause of liberty and my own personal growth of consciousness and I was "awakened" less than a year ago from the documentaries The Inside Job, Zeitgeist, Thrive and of course the world hero Ron Paul. So attacking me as someone trying to drive a wedge between liberty people so aggressively is disingenuous at best without looking at my history.

Look at Matt Lee, he got himself to sit in the room as an official reporter to question top level people and they actually listen to him and answer him. They answer until he pushes a little too far but by the time he does push, he's made his point for anyone actually properly listening. This kid will not get anywhere near there if he doesn't change what he is doing and grow up.

Ben conducted himself brilliantly in the Obama interview asking the toughest questions anyone has EVER asked Obama, got an answer and then dissected it for everyone to see while never giving an opinion and staying objective - he. is. a. hero. for us all. Pushing harder would only have alienated him, and got nothing more out of him.

I call him "this kid" because in all his discourse he is always confrontational and if you put yourself in context and if you are brand new to Bernanke and know nothing of the evil he represents and you see "this kid" trying to harass him while running after him and then getting kicked out, like I said, it doesn't "prove" anything even if you do a follow up report saying "You see! he just ran away from me, it must means he's guilty of being part of Bilderberg." No. And as far as letting these guys know that we're growing and more and more people are waking up....... With the GAZILLIONS of tracked msgs, emails, calls, txts, ect being tracked, they probably have a pretty exact percentage of the growth of the awakening.

So if this kid really wants to be a liberty and truth oriented reporter and thinker, he'll realize that starting out and remaining confrontational will not get you anywhere or accomplish much other than kinda of jumping on the bandwagon of shock jocks and gratuitous quick entertainment without accomplishing much in terms of educating, waking and moving the cause forward.

Regarding Rand, if Ron Paul, Campaign for Liberty and these liberty leaders still support him fully, then keep your eyes open. We're not looking for perfection from him but definitely moving the ideas of liberty forward and Rand is definitely doing that intelligently. Stay patient.

Good Job Luke

What cracks me up about this guy is that they still don't see him coming. How many times does it take before Bernanke recognizes him?

...

...

I used to get uncomfortable watching luke...NO MORE

I'm proud of him and I respect that he has the stones to ask the tough questions. The people in that room are litterally typing millions of dollars into their own accounts and offsetting the entry onto the backs of my daughter and the unborn.

THEY ARE CRIMINALS! They should NEVER be defended. Period!

Bernanke should be swinging from a tree.

GO LUKE!

Poor post, denigrates the

Poor post, denigrates the value of the discussion on the DP. Who funds this kid anyway? We are change has the potential to do some good work but this stuff should be hitting the cutting room floor....

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

have some respect

He isn't a kid, and he is out there confronting these people with tough questions. He is more brave than most people, more brave than I am. I don't see videos of you on here confronting anyone like that.

if he wants to keep his

if he wants to keep his respect, he should stay away from hyperbole.

Do you have any examples of yourself...

confronting Ben in a more polished way... so the "kid" can learn?

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Good stuff.

Keep 'em comin, brother!!!!!!!

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

I like Luke but this was hugely disappointing.

When in doubt shout out something about bilderberg isn't a real plan.

feel free...

to give 'er a whirl.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Think it's so silly

When people talk about how great this guy is.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

and to think this was front paged.

actually...

it's $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Bernanke did not lose it!

Please be truthful when reporting, because that was just total bullshit.

I Didn't See Bernanke Lose It...

He covered the mic that the guy was shoving in his face..

I have yet to see a We Are Change video where they actually accomplish something. They show up yell questions about Bilderberg and are ignored or escorted away.

I'd Say They Accomplished A Lot Here

A bit underwhelming but

so nice to see Ben get aggravated. And what a surprise, he recognized Luke.

I am quite jealous of his immaculately kept beard.

Bernanke knows...

The FED, its destruction of the value of our pseudo- currency, is at the core of many of the problems in America. Every day people need more FED notes to acquire the things they need. This ever increasing pressure to acquire more FED notes is a root influence on crime, depression and the overall destruction of our society. Of course, the FED did not cause ALL of our problems like sending our factories and their jobs overseas but shutting down the FED and their biatch the IRS would add more than a trillion dollars in cash to our pockets and markets. Raising taxes will not fix any of this but eliminating the lecherous thieving would go a long way to restoring sanity in our everyday affairs. There is no statute of limitations on FRAUD.

Video

Thank you!

...

I'll have to see the video before I judge

As much as I despise Ben Bernanke and can see him doing such a thing, We Are Change DOES tend to exaggerate things. Like when they claimed Rand called security on them.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

You called it.

I do appreciate Luke asking these turds the hard questions, but this was not really "losing it."
