So why is the Dow Jones so high right now?

I'm in a debate with my friend. I want to say it's because of the FED but I need more substance.

Does anyone else have any indicators why the Dow Jones is the highest its been since 2008?

Gold, Silver and Bitcoin: The ultimate interview by VisionVictory

This is a most excellent interview where Trace Mayer interviewed by VisionVictory uses excellent analogies and explanations in order to help people grasp what is Bitcoin and bitcoins and how it works and why you should care. I highly recommend spending these 30min and learning this information:



In this interview we sat down with Trace Mayer of Run To Gold & How To Vanish and discussing the very interesting topic of the acceleratingly popular alternative currency known as Bitcoin.

Judge Napolitano Takes On The Fed on Fox and Friends: ‘Not Federal, Not A Reserve,’ And Designed To ‘Make Pres. Look Good’

What the hell is going on? The Judge is on Fox and Friends of all places talking about none other than the federal reserve! They let him say everything he believes about the bank and the hosts sat there and agreed with him! I believe we are having a MAJOR influence on this country that we are just starting to see. Many of the more "neo-con" pundits and figures have been seemingly rethinking our strategy in the middle east due to the recent protests (i.e. Bill O'Reilly). Now we have the hosts of Fox and Friends agreeing with Judge Napolitano on the Federal Reserve! Steve Ducey even pointed out the fact that the dollar has lost much of its value since the creation of the bank. This makes me hopeful!

Glenn Beck: ‘Ron Paul people, I have had it up to here’

This is rich. The establishment (Yes GB you are part of it) has done everything they can to trash Paul supporters. They have lied, cheated and stolen votes. They have insulted us at every turn. They shafted us hard at the convention, in front of the whole country. Now Beck is acting like we are the screwed up ones?

Student Loans: Debt for Life

If student loans are good debt, how do you account for the reaction of Christina Mills, 30, of Minneapolis, when she found out her payment on college and law school loans would be $1,400 a month? “I just went into the car and started sobbing,” says Mills, who works for a nonprofit. “It was more than my paycheck at the time.”

Medical student Thomas Smith, 25, of Hamilton, N.J., is $310,000 in debt and is struggling to make ends meet even before beginning to repay his loans. “I don’t even know what I eat,” he says. “I just go to the supermarket and buy the cheapest thing I can and buy as much of it as I can.”

Then there’s Michael DiPietro, 25, of Brooklyn, who accumulated about $100,000 in debt while getting a bachelor’s degree in fashion, sculpture, and performance, and spent the next two years waiting tables. He has since landed a fundraising job in the arts but still has no idea how he will pay back all that money. “I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s an obsolete idea that a college education is like your golden ticket,” DiPietro says. “It’s an idea that an older generation holds on to.”

Secretly taped, Mitt Romney identifies Obama's voters as entitled and dependent

Mother Jones got hold of video captured during one of Mitt Romney's private fundraisers, so it's nice to know what things are going on behind the closed doors of the elite.

OMG! Bill O'Reilly finally asks the right question. Why do they hate us?

Oh. My. God. After 8 years of Ron Paul and 11 years after September 11th, Bill O'Reilly FINALLY asks the question "So... Why do they hate us?" And what answer does he get? Verbatum... "I think they hate us cause we're there". And how does Bill O'Reilly respond? "I think there's something to that." WHAT THE !?!?!?!?!?!? This is how politicians radio and television personalities change their views on things and get away with it. don't get me wrong, I'm glad Billy seems to finally be coming around to our thinking, but I want a public apology on his show for how he treated Ron Paul for all those years!!! AARRRGGGG FOX NEWS!!!! You frustrate me to no end!

Unfortunately at the moment we have to go visit Bill's website, but if someone could get the youtube clip, would be better. It's the ironically titled "What the Heck just Happened" segment.... If ANYONE has a direct link to the video on youtube would be great. Unfortunatley this link below is not a direct link. You have to click on the right segment "What the Heck just Happened) It won't be long till they just take it down... My apologies.

White House Says It's Unconstitutional To Strike Down The NDAA

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security ..."

White House Says It's Unconstitutional To Strike Down The NDAA

The Obama administration had some harsh words Friday after a federal judge appointed by Obama said the government doesn't have a right to indefinitely detain anyone even remotely associated with terrorist groups.

Judge Katherine B. Forrest permanently blocked the government from enforcing the National Defense Authorization Act, claiming it was too vague and would have a "chilling effect" on free speech.

The MSM moderated "Presidential Agreements" schedule.


Just look at who the fine moderators from the MSM for the "Agreements" are. PBS - Jim Lehrer, ABC - Martha Raddatz, CNN - Candy Crowley, & CBS - Bob Schieffer.

I just wanted to pass this on to you all, so that you know which days to not have something solid in your hands that you may want to throw at your nice televisions if you do happen to decide to watch the "Agreements" (Hard to call something a "Debate" when both people have the same policies isn't it?)

Why not get moderators that are not with ANY media organization? Maybe economics, foreign policy, domestic policy, etc. professors, or even moderators picked by a vote from the people?
