Bob Chapman: Fall of the Dollar on G-20 Finance Ministers Agenda

"Geithner was the one who closed the deregulation deal for the Clinton entourage as lead negotiator. He knows all about the existing agreements. He was directly instrumental in the destruction of Glass-Steagall. The whole new crowd in the Obama administration was responsible for setting up what has become the destruction of our financial system."

Mike Adams: Obama's H1N1 national emergency declaration could invoke FEMA response to pandemic (opinion)

"In other words, there's not really any emergency at all. So why declare a national emergency in the first place? The media reports this was done to allow hospitals to bypass federal regulations concerning the setting up of large-scale triage sites -- emergency medical camps quickly constructed to deal with large numbers of sick people."

Thomas Sowell: Dismantling America

"Just one year ago, would you have believed that an unelected government official -- not even a Cabinet member confirmed by the Senate, but simply one of the many 'czars' appointed by the President -- could arbitrarily cut the pay of executives in private businesses by 50 percent or 90 percent?

"Did you think that another 'czar' would be talking about restricting talk radio? That there would be plans afloat to subsidize newspapers -- that is, to create a situation where some newspapers' survival would depend on the government liking what they publish?

"Did you imagine that anyone would even be talking about having a panel of so-called 'experts' deciding who could and could not get life-saving medical treatments?

"Scary as that is from a medical standpoint, it is also chilling from the standpoint of freedom. If you have a mother who needs a heart operation or a child with some dire medical condition, how free would you feel to speak out against an administration that has the power to make life and death decisions about your loved ones?

"Does any of this sound like America?

"How about a federal agency giving school children material to enlist them on the side of the president? Merely being assigned to sing his praises in class is apparently not enough.

"How much of America would be left if the federal government continued on this path? President Obama has already floated the idea of a national police force, something we have done without for more than two centuries.

"We already have local police forces all across the country and military forces for national defense, as well as the FBI for federal crimes and the National Guard for local emergencies. What would be the role of a national police force created by Barack Obama, with all its leaders appointed by him? It would seem more like the brown shirts of dictators than like anything American.

"How far the President will go depends of course on how much resistance he meets. But the direction in which he is trying to go tells us more than all his rhetoric or media spin.

"Barack Obama has not only said that he is out to 'change the United States of America,' the people he has been associated with for years have expressed in words and deeds their hostility to the values, the principles, and the people of this country."

The Troubled Patriot : It is Good to be The King

"I ask you, does any of this seem familiar to you? Does anyone come to mind in today’s America who seems to fit the bill? Is there someone that children sing songs about? Is there someone who has placed innumerable people in positions of power (unelected and unconfirmed) that support him whole-heartedly? Is there someone who tried to create a national slogan while harassing opponents? Is there a person here in America who is attacking independent media as well as talk show hosts and independent bloggers? Has someone in the United States asked citizens to spy upon one another? Does this same person have any connections to Africa?"

Bill Carter: CNN Drops to Last Place Among Cable News Networks

"That means CNN’s programs were behind not only Fox News and MSNBC, but even its own sister network HLN (formerly Headline News.) Three of its four shows between 7 and 11p.m. finished fourth and last among the cable news networks. That was the first time CNN had finished that poorly with its prime-time shows."

J. Shott: Those greedy corporate CEOs

"If you still think Mr. Tillerson and his fellow corporate heads are overpaid, remember that corporate CEOs are not the only ones making a lot of money, even though they are the ones whose incomes are most frequently criticized. So do professional athletes, entertainers, and TV personalities, including some news anchors.

"The top five athletes last year, for example, were also highly paid, and because of their success attracted lucrative endorsements from product manufacturers: Golfer Tiger Woods earned $100 million; boxer Oscar De La Hoya, $43 million; golfer Phil Mickelson, $42 million; auto race drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher, $40 million and $36 million.

"Salaries in the world of entertainment also boggle the mind. Take movie actors: Matt Damon made $26 million for The Bourne Supremacy; Johnny Depp takes home $20 million per film; Nicole Kidman gets up to $17 million per film; and George Clooney routinely collects more than $15 million per film.

"On television, the highest-paid person on the 2008 prime-time series list is Charlie Sheen at $825,000 an episode, and with money he gets from owning a stake in his show, he makes nearly $20 million a year. David Letterman gets $40 million annually, and American Idol’s Simon Cowell’s annual pay is $36 million.

"We even see that some of the people that deliver the news have seven- and eight-figure annual salaries, like CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric at $15 million; Matt Lauer, NBC Today co-anchor, $12 million; ABC News’ Diane Sawyer makes $12 million; Meredith Vieira, NBC Today co-anchor, $10 million; NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams takes home $8 million, Anderson Cooper of CNN is paid $5 million; and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann gets $4 million.

"These CEOs, athletes, entertainers and news people are among the best in their respective fields. Their pay is not based entirely upon their performance, however, because some CEOs drive their companies into the ground; some athletes make horrible mistakes and lose instead of win; some movies and TV shows do not do well, despite the stars that appear in them; and news anchors often produce lousy ratings. Some high earners in every career field have notoriously bad personal problems, and some have committed crimes.

"Because of the expectation of high levels of performance, these folks are in high demand, hence the high paychecks, sometimes in spite of embarrassing personal problems or criminal involvement.

"Tampa Bay Rays owner Stuart Sternberg sees no problem with big salaries in sports. 'People should be able to make what they make,' he said. That idea applies equally to everyone in America, even CEOs.

"Maybe we should make thoughtful judgments about the value of what each of these people produces. Which of them contributes the most to the society at large; which is the more valuable: a movie, a television program, a winning team or athlete, a news program or a business that provides useful products or services, jobs and that pays taxes to support government activities?

"Viewed in that light, a CEO running a successful business deserves more than contempt and resentment."

David Limbaugh: Obama's War on Fox Is Liberalism's War on Dissent

"In fact, Fox News seems much more conservative than it is because no other television network over the past half-century has been anything but decidedly liberal. When the media norm is liberal, liberals equate liberalism with objectivity and deviations from it as bias, just as liberals preach tolerance toward all ideas --except conservative ones. Their self-delusion is surreal."

Yid with Lid: Rasmussen: Most Voters Say Porkulus Bill Was A FAILURE

"While Democrats and Administration Officials are still arguing that the almost $800 billion dollar stimulus bill was a masters-stroke that saved the country, voters are not buying it, they see the growing national debt and the continuing massive unemployment and call the porkulus bill a failure.

"In a Rasmussen poll released today, 31% of voters say the Porkulus bill hurt the economy, 29% say it did nothing. In other words 60% of American voters are calling the stimulus a failure."

Herb Dennenberg: Obama Taking Us On Path To Fascism

"The Obama campaign (thus referred to as they are in a campaign and not a governing mode), in the tradition of corrupt, thuggish, Chicago politics and fascism have also set out to destroy the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Rush Limbaugh, insurance companies and any other critics that stand in their way."
