If You Think $680 Billion Budget Deficit Is Big, Just Wait For Obamacare To Be Added

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – This is just getting started, just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Where’s the money going to come from? Is this new woman, Janet Yellen, is she going to get in the Federal Reserve and crank out another $80 billion a month to pay for this? We have to keep the stock market going. You gotta feed the monkey, you know, man. Is she going to crank out $80 billion a month to subsidize all those that are going to sign up for the Affordable Care Act?

The Federal Leviathan Needs To Be Downsized Before This Last Train To Brokesville Derails

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Just to put this in perspective, this would mean that our mighty, gargantuan federal leviathan would have to exist on a paltry $1.2 trillion. In other words, it would have to exist on the expenditures of the last year of the Reagan administration, in 1989. Chew on that for a moment. Think about that. Then come back to me and tell me exactly how, practically speaking, this can possibly financially or numerically or mathematically work itself out. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

So Conservative Hysteria Is Good But Liberal Hysteria Is Bad?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I think part of the conservative exercise ought to be contemplation. Think about this. We derided and stood steadfastly against, mocked and impugned, and called every name in the book that we could to those “liberals” who promoted the hysterical idea that I talked about yesterday on the show and talked about three years ago on the show, that we had to have this thing called Obamacare.

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…

The Mystery Of Life Is Gone – What’s Left Is Tax Burden On The Yet-to-be-Born

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Of course, with our scientific acumen and achievement, there is no mystery left, or we don’t think there’s any mystery. We certainly don’t believe that there is any external force above us that’s controlling any of this, which explains why you have the total lack -- watching the celebrations that are going on today and having listened to it all day yesterday as it was about to happen has to be one of the most baffling exercises a human being ever in the history of Earth could ever have witnessed.

Leviathan Has Spent Your Money, Your Kids’ Money, Now Onto Spending Your Grandkids’ Money

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s just sum up what has occurred in the month of October in 2013. The final attempt to repeal what is known as the Affordable Care Act has failed, and it has failed miserably. I mean, it has failed so demonstrably that there is little if anything that you could say, from a federal standpoint anyway, no concessions came out of it. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Congress Has A Few Patriots, But The Rest Are Just Fighting For Their Slice Of Leviathan Pie

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Don’t be living in the ethereal fantasy world that these guys are actually holding the line for the reasons that you and I hold near and dear. There are obviously other political concerns here. There is the divvying up of the $3.8-trillion-pound pie that’s really what is going on here. Each side is fighting for their slice. There are some in the House of Representin’ that are fighting for the correct causes, I think. Their numbers are small. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Kevin Gutzman On 14th Amendment, Government Shutdown And More

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Let’s go to the Dude Maker Hotline. Our friend Dr. Professor Kevin Gutzman is on the line. We’re going to talk a little bit about this silliness that the president can actually act unilaterally because the 14th Amendment commands him to do so when it comes to paying the debt of the United States.

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…

Who’s Really To Blame For The Government Shutdown?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The Democrat Party -- again, I hate to do this in the partisan sense because I despise partisan politics. I don’t want to be a part of them, don’t want to have to talk about them, but in this instance we’re going to have to here because there is politics involved. The Democrat Party has been gaming this from the beginning, knowing that October 2013 was coming, knowing that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act was coming, knowing there was going to be this battle and girding the loins. They’ve been setting this up all along. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

What Did You Think Decreasing The Size And Scope Of Government Would Look Like?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Again, I fail to see why anyone that participates in, advocates for, and has been dreaming about shrinking the federal leviathan, why you are not taking the chance or the opportunity to hit the ramparts, to dig yourself in, and to encourage those that have a vote or say-so in this to hold the line. Folks, this is the battle we’ve all been waiting for, isn’t it? What did you think it would look like? 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…

Congress Behaving Constitutionally, Seriously!?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – In this one rare instance here, we all remain republicans but we can maybe claim that we’re Republicans now. A shocker of all shockers that Speaker John Boehner has not folded the tent, which I must say I am cheerfully impressed by. I don’t hold out any hope that he’s actually going to hold the line, but he certainly is not giving into the demands, the illicit and I think ridiculous demands of, number one, the president, who doesn’t have any say-so in it.

It’s Up To Congress Whether The U.S. Defaults

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Can I just be one of the few sane voices out here? The country is not going to default. It can’t default. It is not going to not make its interest payments. Besides, many of the interest payments are due to what entity? All this money, all the debt you’re hearing about that has to be repaid and whatnot, all of this is not going to China.

The National Government Is A Sham And So Are The Debt Numbers

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Before Obamacare, there was $222 trillion worth of unfunded liabilities on the books for the federal leviathan. The money does not exist on the face of the planet to discharge those responsibilities. That, by the bye, is in excess of what is actually funded and paid for, yet no one is talking about that.

Government Shutdown May Actually Increase Productivity Of Private Sector

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’m going to ask the question again: What productivity? What do they produce? What do they produce other than regulations that hamper the production of every other living soul on the continent, hell, across the world? According to this, the 1996-96 shutdown cost $1.4 billion, roughly $2.1 billion in today’s dollars. One of the things we know federal workers are really good at producing is inflation and currency devaluation. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Nearly A Half-Million Employees Left At Department Of Defense, And That’s With Half Furloughed

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you weren’t opposed to the standing army from the standpoint that the framers of the Constitution and the generations that came after them had been very wary of and with very good reason of having standing armies lying around for obvious reasons, perhaps the latest statistics from the shutdown will warm you to the idea of at least considering this.

Interview With Dwayne Stovall, U.S. Senate Candidate For Texas

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I’ve been teasing you about this all day long. Who is this mystery candidate who is going to be the next candidate, he’s going to announce here on this show that he is going to seek the nomination to be on the ballot come November 2014 to run for United States Senate against an unnamed Democratic opponent? He is hailing from the great State of Texas. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

General Dynamics Or Solyndra, It’s All Stimulus

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – If you’re going to make bombs and things that blow things up and kill people and you’re going to make them using tax dollars, I guess we should be thankful that the weapons of mass destruction are being sent to go blow people and things up in other countries and not in ours. Still, to what end are the American people taxed and burdened so mightily so that employees at General Dynamics or wherever can ply their craft and continue to make the weapons of war?

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…

Chuck Hagel – A Voice Of Reason On Foreign Policy?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Ladies and gentlemen, what I’m about to read to you will illustrate why all the decepticonia was in an uproar and did everything they could do to try to destroy Chuck Hagel, as they’re trying to destroy Senator Rand Paul, before he could be confirmed as Secretary of Defense. They must not allow anyone to get inside the tent that has any, any, any motivation or any intention for our vast military that is outside of the current status quo, and maybe even returning to the 2003 to 2008 status quo. Let’s find some new countries to go and screw up. Yes, let’s find new places to invade. We have an army. Let’s use it. 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.

Don’t “Fix” The Department Of Homeland Security, Abolish It!

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Can you imagine living in 2013 and actually living to see the day that there is a tarpaulin thrown over the ash heap remains of a former ABC federal agency? Oh, the joy of seeing that, my friends. Oh, the bliss of seeing that. I can’t afford it, but I’m gonna go out and buy me a couple bottles of White Star champagne to celebrate and maybe some 16-year-old Lagavulin Scotch if I can get my hands on it.

Defense Spending, Appropriations Bills, And Surveillance State Create A Leviathan-Sized Accounting Labyrinth

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – I am dealing with a decimal percentage five zeroes to the right of the decimal point of what the Congress or Senate is dealing with on just one of these appropriations bills. They have to go through this every single year. If you have ever tried to slog through reading one of these monstrosities, you probably made it maybe 10 or 15 pages in before you threw your hands up in the air and went: No wonder they don’t want to read the bill. I don’t want to read the bill! Well, try and read a bill, seriously. Check out today’s transcript for the rest…
