Ron Paul – Hey Fed! It’s The Free Market Stupid, Pt I

"In 1971 it happened, and that’s when I started speaking out [about the Fed.] Really nobody listened. There were a lot of seeds planted about sound money, especially by Murray and others, and Mises. They talked about this. There was no audience out there. I would go to campuses, when I first went into Congress, and I would get 20 or 30 people come out and maybe convert one or two."

Malvasi – Consumer Credit Society Impoverishes Wealth And Soul

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – "According to the Reuters News Agency, the Sparkasse Bank in Chemnitz recently issued a MasterCard adorned with the hoary visage of Marx himself.

Interview With Kevin Gutzman On Obamacare

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Yesterday, I’m sure you have seen some or all of the president’s wielding of his scepter at his press conference yesterday, asserting he was granting all these insurers and the states this power to alter their plans and basically I guess to ignore what is actually in the Affordable Care Act. I asked you in an email exchange: Is there any precedent for this? Has any president done anything remotely like this? Your answer to that query is? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Caller David Says The End Is Near And The Bottom Will Fall Out Of America

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Folks, if you’re wondering what he’s talking about, here’s what happens. The borrowing authority is granted by lifting the so-called debt ceiling. Where does the money come from? Do you just print it off? That’s one way that you could do it. What generally happens is the Treasury Department tells all their buddies on Wall Street: We’re going to issue $110 billion in Treasury notes. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

A Dysfunctional Citizenry Concerned About Their Dysfunctional Government

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We’re going to step into the King Dude’s wayback machine and go back two days ago to the Gallup organization’s website. If you were perusing that particular poll on who it is that is to blame for the temporary interruption in non-essential wealth transfer payments, you may have stumbled upon this oxymoron: “Dysfunctional Government Surpasses Economy as Top U.S. Problem.” I couldn’t stop laughing just at the headline.

Consumerism Will Save The American Economy!

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - There's a headline at cbsnews.com that says that "Can US Consumers Save The Economy?". But isn't consumerism what's wrong with America? Isn't there another school of thought, from Wilhelm Röpke and others, that says that consuming will not get us out of debt? So this article is nothing more than an attempt at trying to get Americans to try and get their butts off the wealth of cash they are hording and SPEND SPEND SPEND. But the article also states that Americans are also using more credit cards for purchases, more student loans, and more financing for cars and such. So what does that tell us? That they are BORROWING more! That most Americans don't have any cash to spend! And... that most of us are acting like the Congress that we supposedly abhor by borrowing against our future.

Obama Has Forgotten Gingrich And The Last Government Shutdown

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – There’s President Obama out there saying [mocking] “Never before in history has anyone ever used leverage to try not to raise the debt ceiling.” Gingrich is out there I guess listening to this, raising his hand and saying: Um, excuse me, we did. In 1995 and 1996, we did. I have the email blast from former Speaker Gingrich. It was an interesting read. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

It’s Not About The Party, It’s About Article I, Section 8 Of The Constitution

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you’re a new listener, I just want to catch you up on this. I am not being partisan here. I don’t care for, as a matter of fact I despise, partisan politics. If I could do anything with the rest of my life, if I had a choice, it would be to not talk about partisan politics forever. Let’s just get that out of the way here. If the Democrat Party were doing the same thing that the Republican Party is doing right now, in other words, I would be in their corner. I would be yelling and screaming and jumping up and down and setting my hair on fire and saying they are correct, that they are morally and constitutionally in the correct position.

David Stockman’s “Sundown In America”

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Back to David Stockman, there are a couple more stats from the “Sundown in America” essay that he wrote. You can find it in today’s Pile of Prep. If you’re not already convinced, after I read you the rollover of the debt from the first hour, Stockman isn’t finished with his rundown. I’m skipping here. This thing is 18 pages long if printed. I’m only going to get to about a page and a half during the entire three hours. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Divide And Conquer – A Simple Yet Effective Way Of Destroying America

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We are all being played here, folks. This is why this partisanship is going to lead to heartache, and has led to heartache. Do you know what else it does? It keeps the faithful faithful. It keeps those little old ladies sending those $25 checks to the Heritage Foundation. It keeps those little old ladies going to all those club meetings. It keeps all those people out there firing those emails off. It keeps the people in the trenches. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Raise The Minimum Wage, Destroy The Market

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Any wage control damages a market because it has an effect on the price mechanism. Wage is part of the price mechanism, too. Your ability as a businessperson to set the wage, this is part of the price mechanism. This is how you arrive at how much to sell the donut for. The labor cost, that goes into the price mechanism. Anytime the government comes in and sets the price, it is altering forever the market economy. It’s going to have unintended consequences. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

No Matter Who’s Running The Economy, It’s In The Red And Getting Worse

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In what document, under what rule, under what act of Congress, under what amendment to the Constitution has any president ever acquired the power to “run the economy”? My reading of history, the president doesn’t have the power, shouldn’t have the power, and you shouldn’t want to confer it on him, yet here we are. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Bernanke, Bailouts, Bankruptcies, And Bubbles

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you think of yourself as a sow and you’re a major city and you actually had to withdraw yourself from the federal trough and had to pay and manage and take care of your own finances the old-fashioned way, most of this stuff would not happen. Many of the things that occur in major cities would not happen because there would not be the underlying promise there that the federal government is always there with a hand out with programs.

Americans Can Say We Live In A Free Market Economy, But That Doesn’t Make It True

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – You have to have trust in the price system and the market. That’s really one of the great fields of unexplored study in mainstream discourse in the United States, the study of actual free market, the way markets work and the way the price system is the greatest regulator and distributor of resources in the history of man.

Detroit Bankruptcy Isn’t Just About Economics, It’s About Values

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – We have the news from Detroit. This is really sad, really sad and tragic. It’s not sad and tragic just in an economic sense. If you haven’t heard the news, Detroit is going to become the largest municipal bankruptcy in the history of the United States as it has filed for bankruptcy protection. Much of this, I think, could have been averted, but it probably couldn’t have been averted in the last ten years. In other words, what was set in motion 40 years ago, maybe 50, is what is responsible for this. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Will The Next Bailout Be The Trillion-Dollar Student Loan Debt?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Don’t forget, folks, the student loan debt is the largest debt owed on Earth. The only thing that trumps the outstanding student loan debt in the United States is the federal budget deficit or the national deficit. That is the only debt that exceeds student loans. There are over $1 trillion -- you can hear Dr. Evil saying it now in an Austin Powers movie. It’s almost as though some maniacal plot has been executed against the young people of these United States. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Immigration Is Simple – Either They’re Alien Enemies Or Alien Friends

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If Congress wants to deal with this in a constitutionally consistent manner, what I think they ought to do is they ought to have the testicles to declare those that are here illegally as alien enemies. That might require then a declaration of war against Central American countries, but then the designation of alien enemies would apply and you could then deal with the problem. Short of that, all this is going to do is produce more tears. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

The Media Won’t Tell You But The Numbers Don’t Lie, The Recession Is Back

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – It ought to be a subject of discussion frequently on this show that we talk about these economic events and affairs. If you are of the Austrian economic school, you know that what Ben Bernyankme and company, and what the Congress has allowed Bernyankme to do is to set the table for an awful bubble burst, worse than the one in 2008. The one in 2008 may have been comprised of some unintended consequences. The one that’s coming our way now is comprised of almost all intended consequences. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Claes Ryn Warns Of The New Jacobins And True Democratic Mob Rule

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Constitutionalists are raised, structured, socialized, you could say institutionalized to be constitutionalists. This does not happen much any longer, which is why our United States Constitution can be as seemingly useless and not referred to or deferred to as you would like to see it or as it once was.
