Entire interview: Go to 3:40 mark to hear this part.
http://www.kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/Broadcast/Entries...

Today CNBC’s Business News On-Air Editor Rick Santelli surprised King World News when he predicted a stunning victory for the Swiss Gold Initiative. Santelli also brought up Germany’s struggle to get their gold back from the United States in his powerful interview below.

Eric King: “Rick, the polling came out (for the Swiss Gold Initiative) and shocked a lot of people, didn’t it?”

Santelli: “It really did. This vote will happen on November 30th, and the Swiss National Bank, if this happens, will have to hold 20 percent of their assets in gold. They will (also) be restricted from liquidating any more gold, and they will be instructed to try to repatriate all the gold they own that is stored in other countries like Britain.

Chicago Cop Sentenced After Breaking 89 Year-Old Man’s Hip

(TheAntiMedia) On December 12th 2013, an officer named David Barrett walked into a shell station at 10601 S. Cicero Avenue on the Southwest Side of Chicago (Oak Lawn) and began yelling at the cashier because of some kind of problem with the gas pump.

Then, an 89 year-old man named Vincent Detolve asked him to stop cursing obscenities, and the officer pushed him to the ground in response, breaking his hip and tearing his right rotator cuff.

He proceeded to cuss other people in the vicinity out some more, and then the cop left.

New CA Laws Take A Bite Out of the Second Amendment

At the end of September California Governor Jerry Brown signed two anti-gun bills into law that have further eroded the Second Amendment’s foothold in the state.

On second thought, erosion is too soft a word. Assembly Bills 1609 and 1014 have dealt a lethal blow to gun rights in the state by setting the wheels in motion to build a statewide gun owner database and by making it easier for law enforcement officers to file restraining orders to have citizens forfeit their guns. The enforcement of both bills will commence on January 1, 2015.

IRS "Wins" Vs. Tea Party Due to Judge's Ridiculous Logic

Does everyone remember the massive scandal that was uncovered revealing a depth of illegal political bias at the IRS? They discriminated against conservative groups – primarily any group associated with the Tea Party – leading up to the 2012 election by denying them tax exempt status. The Tea Party gr0ups took the matter to the courts, correctly, expecting justice for being wronged by a government agency with a liberal agenda. However, Judge Reggie Walton saw things differently, and provides one of the most ridiculous rulings and rationales that I have ever seen in my 34 years on this earth.

A Southerner Repents A Confession

I love the South and the writings of Fred Reed.

"Although it wrenches my soul to confront it, there are reasons why the South has so often been wracked by racial rioting—by outpourings of the rage of the downtrodden against an unjust civilization. However much the states of the old Confederacy may seek to deny it, they cannot. People do not take to the streets, burn their homes and cities, unless pressed beyond forbearance by the cruelty of the oppressor’s iron fist.

Jesse Benton made more than $500K working for Mitch McConnell

By Sean Sullivan | October 24, 2014
The Washington Post

When Jesse Benton signed up to manage the reelection campaign of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), it was seen as a win-win. Good for McConnell, who needed help broadening his appeal in the tea party. Good for Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who needed a boost in the establishment.

Turns out it was good for Benton, too. At least, financially speaking.

A review of campaign finance records shows Benton made more than $500,000 working for McConnell from the beginning of 2013 through the end of last month. The former top Ron Paul and Rand Paul strategist made most of his money from McConnell's campaign. The rest came from work he did for McConnell's leadership PAC.

Glenn Beck: Not 'All That Bad' If McConnell Loses To Grimes (Audio)

By SAHIL KAPUR | OCTOBER 23, 2014
Talking Points Memo

Glenn Beck doesn't think it would be "all that bad for the country" if Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) loses reelection to Alison Lundergan Grimes (D).

Less than two weeks before Election Day, the nationally syndicated talk radio host told his army of conservative listeners on Thursday that even though Grimes is "gonna be worse" for America, making her a senator could be worth the price of ousting an establishment Republican whom he suggested has added "poison" to Congress.

The Atlantic: Rand Paul Sketches an Alternative to Hawks Like Bush and Clinton

"Americans yearn for leadership and for strength," Senator Rand Paul planned to declare in a foreign policy speech Thursday evening, "but they don't yearn for war."

His remarks (quoted as prepared for delivery at New York City gathering of the Center for the National Interest), were seemingly pitched to Republican voters: the Kentucky Republican dubbed his approach "conservative realism," criticized President Obama and Hillary Clinton, and invoked Presidents Reagan and Eisenhower. But the substance of his speech seems likely to appeal to anyone who believes that U.S. foreign policy has gone astray since 9/11, due largely to imprudent interventions urged by George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. Big parts of his message should appeal to constituencies as diverse as Code Pink and my Orange County-conservative grandparents. "After the tragedies of Iraq and Libya, Americans are right to expect more from their country when we go to war," Paul stated. "America shouldn't fight wars where the best outcome is stalemate. America shouldn't fight wars when there is no plan for victory."

I found this to be very interesting. I wonder if any of this has to do with police being filmed more often.

Ted Cruz Wants to Give the President Even More Power

The GOP Senator is pushing the Expatriate Terrorist Act, which would allow the president to strip Americans of their citizenship. Really bad idea.

Steve Chapman | October 23, 2014

Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't trust Barack Obama to protect Americans against Ebola, defeat the Islamic State, oversee the IRS, or revamp the health insurance system. He decries the expansion of federal power Obama has brought about. But Cruz wants to give him another power by letting him decide that some Americans will no longer be Americans.

That's the implication of the senator's Expatriate Terrorist Act, which would let the government go to court to revoke the citizenship of anyone who joins or aids a foreign terrorist group that targets Americans. Cruz thinks this step is necessary to prevent citizens who leave to fight for the Islamic State from returning to carry out "unspeakable acts of terror here at home."

Rubio To Propose Ebola Travel Ban Legislation

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) announced on Monday that he plans to introduce legislation that would temporarily ban U.S. visas for nationals from African countries affected by the Ebola outbreak.

Rubio said in a statement that he plans to offer the legislation when the Senate returns to work in November. The temporary ban would apply to nationals from Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone, and would extend to other countries where the virus has spread. The ban would remain in place until the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention determines that the outbreak has been contained.

Histrionics aside, instances of those recently returned from being in contact with those with Ebola (see http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/24/nyregion/possible-ebola-vi...) raise the questions posed by this Lancet article musing about the utility of exit screening (see summary http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-67...)
