Send In The Clowns: Deconstructing The Nevada Democrat Debate
Hello everybody and thank you for tuning into the Liberty report with me. Today is Dan you make atoms are co host Daniel. Good to see you. How are you this morning? Dr Paul Good. I've sure you work real hard studied about events and all about this election going on and I just wonder if anything much is really changes. So we're going to pick your brain today about that and say a quick so well I did. I watched a good bit of it but I was anticipating. I have to see when the sex she comes up to our thing. I was waiting for the subject of foreign policy to come out but I waited to the last ten minutes and Said if the next word is not dealing with foreign policy of giving up so. I doubt if they ever mentioned anything about foreign policy but of course the whole thing was you know had nothing to do with with a debate because if if they had an important issue you know whether it's foreign policy. Monetary policy deficits financing The welfare state of state corporatism. And that never came up. The only thing I could see in this whole thing. That came up was who got to pass out the loot. It was an argument for who who gets to write the checks and You know we have a commander in chief the military But the The are in the name. I'd like to give them what they're arguing for is. Is The plunderer cheat? Because that's what they're doing. They talk they talk about trillions and trillions of dollars. Well they don't have to pay their bills back here. Everything is free and no matter what the problem is but they want to be in charge of it and of course the one question they don't ask never asked one. Is this affect anybody's rights to Pass out so much at. Who's how's it going to be paid for totally irrelevant in? You know they. They never mentioned Federal Reserve. Can you imagine that they didn't they didn't bring that up so It was the usual stuff and It was a little bit Expected One thing that crossed my mind as I was watching because there was a lot of junk going back for the song came back. A- where are the clowns they send in the cons and then the next line in the lyrics is don't bother they're here that might be pretty appropriate. It was terrible at one time. It was going back and forth. I'm pretty sure I remember this correctly. you know. Bloomberg wasn't they didn't give him time but he didn't do much with it when he got it but he was sitting there out of quiet and we're going back and forth and back and forth and he looked over. He said you know what he says. If the more people hear this and he points to him you know of of your discussion. The votes trump's going to get and I thought well you know all of a sudden he said something. Very very accurate probably. Yes that's true. And there's a really a quick debate summary Class Warfare Bloomberg has Tara because he's so rich. He's terrible accusations of sexual harassment unhinged breathless attacks on him constantly racism of stop and Frisk you know. Some of this stuff is legitimate but it was just attack after attack after attack now sort of had the feeling the other candidates were grateful because they finally have someone else that they can all hate in addition to trump. And that's what it felt like it you know. Neither of us are fans of Bloomberg. He's an absolute authoritarian. But you almost kind of felt. Sorry for him. The others were so bad. He almost look good by comparison just kind of sitting there and keeping his mouth shut. You know the The whole thing is is socialism is a big issue. And they're they're they don't accept the principle that there's a lot of definitions lot of variety and for me what they're talking about. You solve your problems. In a voluntary way in a free and our pre market or free assistant designed for freedom or is it. The authoritarian is doing this so often leads to some form of of socialism. And I happen to think that you know you can spot which way they're going and I think the socialism the authoritarian Nazem of Bloomberg is a sense of more to a fascist state. And I think what was sanders is doing. It would be more of a traditional communist date but I you know Brumberg mention that. Oh boy understand that at all. You called me a communist your com economy. In a way I don't think Bernie actually visualizes that he would like to instill Soviet communism in this country. That's beside the point. It's it what you endorsed principles in your endorsed and what direction you go. And he wants people to stop calling him. A communist socialist is okay but I would say in a way. We shouldn't call him. We should qualify. We shouldn't for Bernie Sanders actually believes in Russian communism the Soviet system. But that would i. We could agree not to do that if he would agree. And all of them you make this mistake. They blame free-market market capitalism and for everything and I highly resented. We've talked about this a lot. That the problems we have is capitalism which will turn. I don't work in a way. They're inferring too much freedom. So much free enterprise and we have to stop that so they they do exactly what they complain about their called. Communists within they also say that we have to do is stop what we have because we hate we hate capitalism and freedom and too many choices. We have to save the people from themselves. And that's why you need. A need is but if they had to answer the question how much authoritarianism how much for somebody guns do. You need to collect all this money and to a police. The world is the worst police state in the world on what they're talking about but Now they're not going to think there turns because they see themselves in many ways as godlike you know they're going to solve social problems economic problem and they're certainly not bashful solving the world's problem so it's all it's It's all authoritarianism with the use of force and it's unlimited as far as the government is concerned It's only the people that misuse guns and violence. It's never the government. The government never never makes a mistake when they're using guns and also the people who drink too big sodas ago. But you know our good friend. Robert Wins L. I think has one of the best quotes about the debate. He said this was all about candidates sparring over details of various interventionist programs. Perhaps it became most absurd when the six statists debated the so-called differences between socialism communism and capitalism. As if they knew they they pretend but I I generally try to avoid some of those terms because there are so many variations. It's interventionism I use it time But the other one is the authoritarian. You know they pretend they're not authoritarians they WANNA bring bring freedom and justice to the people but I if you look at what the Democrats were doing in this in this recent Russia. Gate squabble on the impeachment. I don't think they were much interested in justice before the law so we have a long way to go on that but I do think that. How -nology if you look at that that there's a bunch of clowns there and but I think they're dangerous clowns and this is this is something that will not solve the problems they they they do not ever ever talk about The Concept of liberty or the purpose of government that that that wouldn't even have across their mind. It would have been pretty neat if somebody would have popped up a question. What do you think the purpose of government ought to protect liberty and not run the world? Run the economy and tell people how to. Drink Coca Cola taste thing. Is that what? The purpose of government is an interesting way of measuring popular of course polls are interesting and and they can be manipulated. But there's kind of a better way in some ways which is a skin in the game which is looking at the betting market the futures market on the different candidates. We actually have something. We saw zero hedge today if we can put up that first chart kind of interesting and it shows the strength of sanders and this is a continuous rise of sanders from October. And here he shot up after the debate and Look what happened to Bloomberg? He shot way down after the debate. That's the orange the dark oranges Bloomberg and just below Bloomberg you can see Biden and Buddha judge sort of Duke it out and you see Buddha judge taking a hike Biden has had precipitous fall from late in December. So that looks about where we are. It looks like Bloomberg's bubble has burst artificial bubble. Anyway that I think the press the media and the elites blew up You know and then it's been destroyed. I think in last night's debate. You know the way they approach. Is they assume that they can fool everybody all the time but I think just a reasonably knowledgeable twelve year old. Might ask the question. How do you pay for this? You Know How do you pay for all this free stuff? And of course they never talk about that and the one thing they don't talk about it and they probably don't have a good understanding about it because they believe that they can just redistribute wealth. And everybody's GONNA be happy not realizing that with the monetary system. We have in what they WANNA DO AND HAVE WEALTH TAXES. They destroy wealth they destroy. Well not only do they want the wealth it's already been created by redistribution but they also destroy productivity people who has created a lot of wealth. Why are they going to continue to do it? They're going to quit they. You know the the tax codes when they make a sharp. You Know Sanders have you know. I don't WANNA make everybody. You know equal to twenty thousand dollars a year. We'll have a we'll have a cutoff. We would never take all their money but he gave a number. It's pretty when you're talking to a billionaire in but they never want to understand the ramifications and they in their own minds. They believe that they are creating economic justice. But I would think some If you look into the individual lifestyles of most of them I mean sanders doesn't live in a tent. You know and He's still he's still bleeding heart and And and scheming that they do the maneuvering and the lying and the fibbing. A clown is much too nice attorneys. They're they're not clowns they're able to do or because people who use government force you legal to take from one person to another their plunders. They're they're they're they're committing theft and they never get charged without They should be enforced to explain. Why is it that if I go to person a and take half what have and give it to person be who doesn't have anything and if he doesn't cooperate either shoot him or put him in prison? Yeah what kind of society is. Why should anybody go to work? You know it's it's so sad. They don't they don't look at the principal. They look at how wonderful they are because they They're compassionate people and they're doing this and it's all going to be better because look how bad look at what freedom has done to our country. Of course we've talked so often about all this this compassionate and foreign policy compassion with monetary policy compassion with death. And they've turned that around and they're gonNA blame anybody who talks about liberty and that we are guilty for the conditions we have but not too many conservatives. We'll talk our message. You know they sort of fell into the trap. Well no it's not exactly that and you know you have to do this but they will not ever admit that That these conditions were created by government. And they say well look at what. Free-market medicine has done that is so disgusting. Yes it's a massin there's monopolies and we have corporatism and yet they still say that is why we have to have one party. Payer you know and socialize at all and and everything will be fair and the cost will go down. Because they won't have to fill out. Some paperwork is so much demagoguery. Well you know this is something I mean. There's going to be people some of our friends on the progressive side. Criticize what you just said. But here's the thing that they'll never gun GonNa want to admit which is okay. These all of these accused. Candidates accused trump of being an authoritarian. He's a bad horrible guy. But everything as you as you pointed out everything they say and do is at least as authoritarian as trump. You know they are and I think you know. The progressives hopefully will will wake up to that and start understanding that you know. I remember early in the last campaign in sixteen and trump was just barely involved. They asked me what I thought I. He comes across to me as an authority and Because he's been doing these businesses and things and that That needs a strong strong message and he does you know get involved in a use it. So that's the reason why the whole group. Except for our twelve friends up there all authoritarians and they love it they love it and in some are worse than others. Some are worse on economics and some are worse on on monetary or. They're all bad on monetary policy. And some some some are bad on medical policy but but he. I didn't hear any talk about this. You know the reason. We have this mess in this mail distribution of wealth. It's the due to the monetary system. It's designed to do this and of course corporatism you bail out the rich which the liberals would say no. They shouldn't do that. You know they you know even Bernie would agree with that position. He just wants the authority in his pocket his hands and he will design it and know who who really deserves the free stuff and this whole thing about free stuff. You know the old saying that there ain't no such thing as a free lunch and there is no such thing as a free stopped program and I think that's why that's why hall you have a bunch of clowns up there because they're not talking about the problem. The country is morally bankrupt and it's financially bankrupt. Foreign policy is is bankrupt and yet they're just feeling their way and nobody wants to admit the truth. How precarious the situation is but it. It will become known soon and they'll probably Bam blame it on. A virus virus caused all the trouble right. Well you know I've had lunch and some of those communists lunch kitchens and it may be a free lunch but it doesn't taste very good honest with you but you know the fact. Is there as you started out? The show saying there was no meat in the campaign. There was no substance. Here's what Peter Van Buren you know we. He's been at our conferences. He's a friend of ours. Here's what he wrote today and I think he this. This captures it all not a word about foreign policy. China North Korea Iran. Nothing nothing about the Department of Justice. Nothing about impeachment. Few specifics about anything. Not The least of which was healthcare and then he said he all you're going to beat trump like that DEM's come get your people and I read that and I'm thinking why was there. No substance. Well I'll tell you one reason why there's no Tolsey. They wouldn't let her she'd been drawing crowds everywhere. Join crowds everywhere. Bloomberg has drawn a crowd anyway but somehow he gets in and she was out there beating the streets talking to people. She's not even allowed to participate. You know the whole thing smells rig. We have to be pleased though at Baden. And his son was brought up but lo and behold he brought it up defended his son and nobody said one word. He's an angel and Biden himself. Brought it up and it was like it was all plan. Oh if I do that. And all this. You know their their strategy. They're already talking about. How are we gonNA bring these clowns together? And they're going. They're going to have a job but I think that trump trump politically speaking will probably be able to handle them. But I don't know if he can handle every event between now and then but it's almost getting too late for a major crisis hitting and trump suffering. The consequence usually takes monster here to say. Oh yeah trump caused this to happen because everything doesn't come down in twenty four hours but it's a good. It still a possibility that exist. There's some event out there but trump's been pretty smart. I mean He. He laid the foundation for blaming the Federal Reserve He to do the wrong thing and about but in he'll blame the Federal Reserve for not doing enough of the wrong thing and so they they have their ways of of of blaming others for their problems but this is not going to go away. I think the crisis is too big. You know this Monetary debt crisis every single day. And we've talked already several times in budget and they didn't. They didn't express any problem at all with the budget. You know but a lot of free stuff if you need it and did they ever question. Well if we write off the debt of all the students are we offending those people who borrowed the money in good faith and work two jobs and paid it off. Of course where we could do is just voted back. Pay Or something. That's probably what else. Yeah I mean I I think only trump can really defeat trump. He's doing a good job because he's he looks a little unhinged with this tweeting in this and that I mean he's his own worst enemy when it comes to this but I'm going to close by changing the topic a little bit on. This is something that we've been talking about and actually now it's live and that is our conference on May twenty third in Houston put up that first graphic. Here's the first graphic please. Here's our here's our poster about the conference in. It's all about speech. Shut up cancel culture and the war on speech on the campuses in social media in government in society. The idea that if you don't like something you don't just avoid it. You try to cancel you. Try to get the person to shut up. This is we're going to talk about and here's how you can get your tickets. It's a half day conference starting at eight thirty with breakfast coffee and tea throughout the morning. We finish out one. I'll give you the afternoon to enjoy Houston and it's great dining opportunities. Just go to the Ron Paul Institute website Ron Paul Institute dot org you see that up in the upper right hand corner. Click on that picture. While the headline it'll take you to the site where you can read more of the details. The rationale behind the conference and how you can get your folks. These tickets are very very cheap. Forty five dollars and you get a nice buffet breakfast so this is this is not huge investment to go and listen to some great speakers. We're GONNA make some announcements on the speaker soon but trust me. These are people who are right out there in front on these very very important topic of the war on speech the most fundamental thing fundamental value. We have good last night's debate. I don't think ever has resolved anything yet because the real factor in competition with the whole crowd there would be would be trump but in that crowd and what they were doing and I said they are talk here today is they're talking about who gets to be the plunderer chief who gets to take from one and give to another. Who's the one to to promote the propaganda and a philosophy of authoritarianism and redistribution of wealth with guns from the government and that that is what's going on and I don't see any any easy way out. I think it's going to get much much worse. I think we'll go through this charade of at election. I've said it so many times that politics really isn't a place where you saw the problems. The problems are solved when it's the people have a prevailing attitude and they demand that They want What the results of living in a free society today? It's it's really scary. When you see that the lead plunderer in that group last night is Bernie Sanders. I mean if it's if it's true we're in a bad state of. I don't think it's bad to tell you the truth. And the one way is always looking for a positive well. I argue that. We're all of a sudden going to change the congress and they're going to do all these wise things and we're GONNA get rid of the Fed and we're going to bring our troops home but in the midst of a crisis if you have enough people thinking correctly about what the proper role of government ought to be there and there's a chance that we could you know make massive improvements you know in the monetary system principles of liberty. So there it there is a chance but right now You know we don't know which way it would go. I do remember the sixties very Very well in the tragedy of the destined destruction perpetrated against Vietnam Vietnamese American people and our American soldiers. You know it ended not because all of a sudden we had wise people in the State Department. It was finally the demonstrations here at home and people said enough is enough This war this war has to end and finally they got Congress to say they knew the message and they quit funding war. And that is what's going to have to happen but our job is to present to the best of our ability the truth. What's happening so that? When Al Paternity comes that we know what we must ask war and move and promote and work for and of course for us is very easy. It's a free society where people have responsibility and individual sovereignty is honored and everything is voluntary. If you don't hurt people you can do what you want. You can ruin your own life if if you're capable but trusting the government to take care of whether it's healthcare or education or anything else believe me. There is no reason to place trust in those bureaucrats and those clowns who want to be president. I want to thank everybody for tuning in today to liberty report. Please come back soon.
