‘We Don’t Have Capitalism’: Glenn Beck, Richard Duncan and Art Laffer Break Down The Economic Crisis
- Posted on July 17, 2012 at 9:28pm by Mytheos Holt
Glenn Beck hosted an unusual show on Tuesday night, devoting large segments of the program not to personal sermonizing, but instead to hearing from two different experts with very different takes on the economy. Those two experts were economists Art Laffer and Richard Duncan, who managed to both take a very pessimistic view of where the economy currently is, while also offering diametrically opposed suggestions for how to improve it.
Broadly speaking, Duncan approached the issue from the Left, while Laffer approached it from the Right. However, those two descriptions don’t actually do the full clash of ideologies justice. Duncan argued that the choice of options for the United States government was threefold, and that policymakers could either 1) Revert to a balanced budget, which would contract the economy all the way into a depression, 2) Keep spending at the current rates and go bankrupt and hit a recession in 5-10 years, or 3) Keep spending at current rates, but use the money to invest in up-and-coming technology, rather than to pay off cronies or create shovel-ready jobs. Duncan favored the third approach, as you’ll see in the following video:

Napolitano says White House now ‘dangerously close’
April 10, 2012
REPOST: April 12, 2012
Not many weeks ago, Barack Obama announced that Congress was being uncooperative, so he would have to go it alone with executive orders to make changes he wanted for America.
Then he stated he is confident that the Supreme Court would not choose to overturn his health care law, through which the government requires Americans to buy a product approved by the federal bureaucracy or face fines.
His diminishment of two of the three co-equal branches of government has caught the attention many citizens, and now a legal expert has weighed in with a stark warning about the future of the nation.

Just moments into a speech before volunteers in Massachusetts Wednesday, senate candidate Elizabeth Warren was heckled by a member of the audience. The man told Warren that if she is in fact the “intellectual creator” of the Occupy movement, then she is a “socialist whore.”
The man, who claimed to be out of work since February 2010, blasted Warren for her support of Occupy and asserted that the Tea Party has been protesting Wall Street excess for far longer than OWS has.
Before the gender-based epithet was used, Warren told the man she was “very sorry” that he has been unemployed for so long and then suggested his situation would have improved if the “recent jobs bill” had been passed in the Senate.
“I‘m very sorry that you’ve been out of work,” Warren told the man. “I‘m also very sorry that the recent jobs bill that would’ve brought 22,000 jobs to Massachusetts did not pass in the Senate.”
The Huffington Post adds:
Speaking in a packed VFW hall, Warren went on to address his question about her association with Occupy Wall Street. “I‘ve been protesting what’s been going on on Wall Street for a very long time,” she said, but added that the movement has its own independent agenda and will proceed along its own course.

Before you read this, think “FIRST AMENDMENT–Freedom of Speech/Press”
They’re baaaaack. It’s another legion of Obama snitch police. The Obama 2012 campaign has rolled out “Attack Watch”. “Get the facts. Fight the smears.” And report all dissidents and enemies here. The announcement was made earlier today on the official BarackObama Twitter account.
[Editor: He can attack us, be he wants to know who attacks him? MARXIST! DICTATOR!]
Twitter’s already having a ball with it: Just check out the #attackwatch hashtag.
If this all sounds familiar, it should.
Recall that during the Obamacare campaign in August 2009, the White House summoned Obama-bots to monitor blog postings and “casual conversations” of health care takeover opponents — and then report them to the president. The effort was led by health czar Nancy deParle and former ABC News correspondent Linda Douglass.
Who was behind the Obamacare Internet Snitch Brigade? Obama campaign operatives and former Soros-tied Center for American Progress progs then on the federal payroll. Reminder:
Czardom has its privileges. This week, President Obama’s health care overlord launched a taxpayer-funded initiative to recruit an Internet Snitch Brigade that will combat “disinformation about health insurance reform.” As the White House explained in a special online bulletin:
“These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.”

Last Friday’s report on economic growth for the second quarter of 2011 completes the burial of Obamanomics. The economy grew a paltry 1.3% for the quarter, with reported growth for the first quarter reduced from a meager 1.8% to a negligible 0.4%. The economy for the entire year so far has actually grown less than the weak growth we thought we had for the first quarter alone.

Who is Barack Obama, really? He’s been accused of being a socialist, a Marxist, and a covert Muslim but these labels are irrelevant to his true intentions and beliefs. It’s also clear that his destructive agenda is unlike anything we have ever seen from any President of the United States. So what does Barack Obama really stand for? Where does this perceived rage against the country come from?
New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza has the story behind Barack Obama, and you’ll be shocked by the results. An inherited anticolonialist rage against domination by Western civilization, stemming from the beliefs of Obama’s father is what drives the President. D’Souza lays it all out in his book The Roots of Obama’s Rage which you can get for free when you order Townhall Magazine. In this mind-blowing book D’Souza explains why Obama’s economic policies are designed to intentionally make America poorer, why he welcomes a nuclear Iran, why he sees the United States as a rogue nation, and much more.
Newt Gingrich calls The Roots of Obama’s Rage “Stunning…the most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama.” In his most provocative book to date, D’Souza paints a startling picture of the motivations and true beliefs of the man who is leading our nation.
Don’t wait, get the book that is flying off of bookstore shelves everywhere in the United States, order Townhall Magazine today and receive The Roots of Obama’s Rage absolutely free!

Months ago, I predicted in this column that President Obama would so discredit himself in office that he wouldn’t even be on the ballot in 2012, let alone have a prayer of being reelected. Like President Johnson in 1968, who had won a much bigger victory four years previously than Obama did in 2008, President Obama will be so politically defunct by 2012 that he won’t even try to run for reelection.
I am now ready to predict that President Obama will not even make it that far. I predict that he will resign in discredited disgrace before the fall of 2012. Like my previous prediction, that is based not just on where we are now, but where we are going under his misleadership.
Is the President Above the Law?
Watergate was supposed to have established that Presidents are not above the law. If that is so, President Obama may have to resign for breaking the law in the Sestak affair.
Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) is now the Democrat nominee for the Senate seat held far too long by Arlen Specter. President Obama induced Specter to switch parties and give the Democrats their very temporary, 60 vote, filibuster-proof majority, in return for endorsing him for reelection and promising him no opposition in the Democrat primary. But Sestak had already announced that he was running for the seat, and he refused to get out. Two week ago, Sestak defeated the unprincipled, opportunistic Specter for the Democrat nomination, continuing the perfect string of everyone who Obama endorses and campaigns for going down to defeat.

Marxist-led study has close ties to Obama White House officials

Free Press founder Robert W. McChesney
NEW YORK – A George Soros-funded, Marxist-founded organization calling itself Free Press has published a study advocating the development of a “world class” government-run media system in the U.S.
A newly released book, meanwhile, documents Free Press has close ties to top Obama administration officials.
“The need has never been greater for a world-class public media system in America,” begins a 48-page document, “New Public Media: A Plan for Action,” by the far-left Free Press organization.
“Commercial media’s economic tailspin has pushed public media to the center of the debate over the future of journalism and the media, presenting the greatest opportunity yet to reinvigorate and re-envision the modern U.S. public media system,” argued the Free Press document, which was reviewed by WND.
The Free Press study urges the creation of a trust fund – largely supported by new fees and taxes on advertising and the private media – to jump start the founding of a massive government-run public media system that will ultimately become self-sufficient.
“We believe local news reporting should become one of public media’s top priorities,” said Free Press Managing Director Craig Aaron, one of the paper’s co-authors.
“We should redeploy and redouble our resources to keep a watchful eye on the powerful and to reliably examine the vital issues that most Americans can’t follow closely on their own,” Aaron stated.
Free Press is a well-known advocate of government intervention in the Internet.
A new book, “The Manchurian President,” documents the founder of the Free Press, Robert W. McChesney, is an avowed Marxist who has recommended capitalism be dismantled.
