“Blood on Bernanke’s Hands” Over Rioting In Egypt.Chinese Warned Of Inflation From Commodity Speculation Leading To Calamity As Palin Also Pointed Out

Posted by M.Joseph Sheppard At Palin4President2016 on January 28, 2011

Regular economics commentator on The British based financial website “The Market Oracle” Mike Shedlock voiced his opinion on the root cause of the civil strife in the Middle East, particulary the events in Egypt.

Blood on Bernanke’s Hands

Most of the increases in food prices are due to droughts in South America, floods in Australia, and poor growing conditions in many places. However, Bernanke’s “Quantitative Easing” policies combined with rampant credit growth in China and India have led to increased speculation in commodities. That speculation has forced up food prices.

Please note that speculation in commodities is not a cause of anything. Rather commodity speculation is a result of piss poor monetary policies not only the Fed, but central bankers worldwide.”

The Chinese cautioned Bernanke about this endless use of the printing press as they advised, with all common sense, that it would cause a rush of hot money into speculation and ramping up of cost inflation due to commodity buying and hoarding.

Leading Inexorably To Calamity As Palin Pointed Out

The endless printing of money by the Obama administration’s confirmed head of the Reserve Bank ,Bernanke, in a desperate attempt to kick start the American economy, has lead, as Shedlock rightly says, to inflation in commodities. This has led to higher prices and poverty-the natural result of inflation.

Sarah Palin urged a return to “Common sense” economics. Cutting spending, balancing the budget and getting America back on track through financial discipline.

if this, printing press splurge continues, the food riots will come to a neighbourhood near you courtesy of the Obama administration.

Also, if Islamic fundamentalists take over in the Middle East as a result of the rioting, food inflation may also not be the only thing exploding in America.

Can we wait two years for Palin? Will we have an inflationary bust followed by a massive depression?

One thing is certain, the iron laws of economics have not be repealed no matter what magical policies the Obama administration pursues in the name of the “redistribution” then candidate Obama advised “Joe The Plumber” he was going to institute.

John Hayward: Bristol Palin Is Uninvited

Posted by joshpainter on January 28, 2011

John Hayward weighs in on the recent episode of what Jonah Goldberg rightly calls Liberal Fascism at Washington University that we wrote about here and here:

The nominal reason given by the campus conformity police was that inviting Palin to speak would be too expensive.

[…]

A November 2010 report from the Student Life newspaper at Washington University said that the Green Action environmentalist group paid disgraced Obama cabinet member Van Jones a $5000 honorarium, which is the maximum allowed for appeals made over the summer. Green Action tried to get another $2500 for him, but the Student Union Treasury voted them down. If Van Jones is worth five to seven thousand dollars, Bristol Palin for $20,000 is the deal of the century…

[…]

Another claim made by the campus left is that Palin was “too controversial” to speak, a consideration that obviously doesn’t apply to people like Van Jones. You can see how a young mother discussing the perils of teen pregnancy would be more controversial than the views of a self-described Communist who was run out of the most radical Administration in modern history, because he entertained the notion that George Bush was the real villain behind the 9/11 attacks.

Elevating this line of reasoning to totalitarian art, Sean Janda wrote in Student Life that Palin’s appearance would “fundamentally shift the discourse that this event will create. Instead of discussing issues regarding abstinence in college, students will discuss the suitability of Ms. Palin as a keynote speaker. In this way, Ms. Palin’s appearance will suppress dialogue about the issues that Sex Week is meant to address and, instead, spark dialogue about Treasury’s use of its money.”

In other words, because the campus left is mad with hatred at the Palin family, her presence would be too much of a distraction. Their resistance automatically makes her too controversial to be allowed to speak, which means anyone they really dislike would instantly hit the same level of controversy, and be silenced. I don’t know what else is being taught at Washington U, but Sean Janda seems to understand fascism pretty well.

[…]

Palin’s place on the Student Sexual Responsibility Week panel will be taken by Dr. Katie Plax, an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Washington University. I doubt she’ll pull the kind of crowds Bristol would have, since she’ll be walking across the quad to deliver her presentation. A May 2009 profile of Dr. Plax from the Washington University Newsroom mentions that she is the recipient of a two-year fellowship from the Soros Foundation, and actively campaigned for Barack Obama in the 2008 election. She sounds like someone the campus-left cowards will be more comfortable with.

Dana Milbank FAIL: Sarah Palin OWNS February

Posted by joshpainter on January 28, 2011

– by Josh Painter

Who needs any further sign that liberalism has been reduced to fringe status as a political philosophy than the pitiful fact that Dana Milbank can’t even persuade his fellow Palin-hatin’ progressives at the Washington Post to join him in his boycott of writing about the former governor and Republican vice presidential candidate?

Just two days ago, Milbank’s Post colleague and extreme leftist comrade Jonathan Capehart wrote in his own column that he has no intention of joining in any moratorium on viciously attacking Gov. Palin. Today Chris Cillizza made it clear in his column that he and his fellow Fixers were likewise not interested in joining Milbanks’ botched-before-it-begins boycott. It’s somewhat appropriate then, that Cillizza’s column is titled “The Fix,” as we predicted Saturday, they can’t kick their HaterAde habit:

They are so addicted to “the politics of personal destruction” that they can’t stop themselves from sticking the needle in their arms for another dose of hate-smack. Like some hapless character in one of their Hollyweird propaganda films — call this one “Brokeback Boycott” — they just can’t quit her.

Milbank backfired so loudly, it seems, it was even heard all the way across the Atlantic Ocean, where The Telegraph’s Tony Harnden rejected it out of hand, preferring the novel (for times like these) approach of balanced reporting instead:

Rather than sneering fascination or a haughty boycott, how about a middle way in which what she does and what she says is reported on and analysed on its merits?

To this end, Telegraph Blogs has declared February “Sarah Palin Month”. Our US correspondents will cover the former Alaska governor throughout February in the fashion she deserves – and, moreover, other bloggers will make sure that Mrs Palin is mentioned every day, favourably or otherwise.

Pouring salt in Milbank’s wounds, a number of conservative bloggers have declared February “Reagan/Palin Appreciation Month”:

During February, as we celebrate President Reagan’s legacy and Governor Palin’s accomplishments, the Palin-friendly blogs that participate in Reagan/Palin Appreciation Month will be ramping up their coverage of all things Sarah Palin in a show of support for Governor Palin. We are asking all Sarah Palin supporters to sign the Reagan/Palin Appreciation Month Proclamation. Palin-friendly blogs that want to participate in this celebration can request to be added as sponsors of the Proclamation by using the Contact Petition Sponsor button on the petition website after signing the Proclamation.

Activist website Organize 4 Palin has also ramped up its efforts to get the boots on the ground in motion:

Two weeks ago the Un-Holy alliance between the Lame Stream Media and Team Obama led an all out assault on Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and you.

The majority of regular Americans were gleefully and devilishly called Murderers in a futile attempt to: Stop the Message and destroy the Messenger.

We won’t be stopped. We won’t be silenced. We are united, and we are silent no more.

This is 2008 all over again. Anyone who thinks the Lame Stream Dinosaur Media is not going to do anything, say anything, pervert anything to get Obama re-elected is either naive or lying.

Going into 2012 let’s be on offense…

Lest one get the impression that the post-Tuscon attacks on Gov. Palin and “Milbank’s Folly” have only ignited the Palin-specific blogging community into action, think again. Irreverent conservative blog iOwnTheWorld recently announced its own initiative in response to Milbank’s grandstanding:

In response to Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank’s suggestion of a moratorium on media Palin stories for the month of February, we came up with a little idea of our own!

“All Palin February”
We here at iOTW will have at least one Sarah Palin item a day throughout the entire month of February, but we need your help. So, send in your favorite Palin stories, quotes, pictures, poems, etc., so that we can fight the main stream media bias against former Governor Palin and all conservatives.

[…]

We are also asking that all bloggers, writers, commenters, talk show hosts, conservative journalists and fair minded people stand up to the biased reporting and Palin bashing by the main stream media! Please join iOTW as we celebrate “All Palin February”!

As for ourselves, we want to take a moment to thank Dana Milbank and his hive-minded fellow PDS-inflicted Palinoics. It is they, after all, who made all this possible.

Governor Palin: On Sputnik vs. Spudnut

Posted by Adrienne Ross on January 28, 2011

Governor Palin via Facebook:

Please read this article by the Hoover Institution’s Research Fellow Peter Schweizer. Schweizer, who has written extensively on the subject of the decline and fall of the Soviet Union, offers a Washington Post writer an important refresher on the real history of Sputnik, since many critics are engaged in misreporting:

Palin’s other point is that Sputnik was the sort of government bureaucratic program that got the Soviet Union in trouble; it’s an example of what eventually did them in. Citing Wikipedia (what journalistic ingenuity!), Stromberg argues that actually the Soviet Union didn’t have a debt problem until some “thirty years after” Sputnik. Perhaps instead of relying on Wikipedia, Stromberg might have consulted Robert Gates’ book From the Shadows which chronicles, in part, his career as a Soviet analyst at the CIA. (Just in case they are unaware at the Post, this is the same Robert Gates who is now the Secretary of Defense.) On page 173, he accurately points out that the CIA knew early on of the “Soviet economic crisis. From the late 1950s, CIA had clearly described the chronic weaknesses as well as the formidable military power of the Soviet Union.”

Read the whole thing here.

Now, in a recent interview I mentioned analogies that could relate to solutions to our economic challenges, including the difference between a communist government’s “Sputnik” and the private sector’s “Spudnut.” The analogies I mentioned obviously aren’t comparable in size, but highlight a clear difference in economic focus: big government command and control economies vs. America’s small businesses.

If you’re near Richland, WA, you should stop by The Spudnut Shop, where you’ll find an all-American success story of a family owned small business that for over 60 years has been serving up a product that people want to buy. Businesses like this coffee shop don’t receive big government bailouts. They produce something with their own ingenuity and hard work. And here we see the former communist Soviet Union’s advancement (before its government debt-ridden demise) vs. America’s small businesses that are the backbone of our economy.

We’d be well off if we had a greater appreciation for the free market ingenuity of ordinary American entrepreneurs, both great and small – whether they make high-tech gadgets or potato donuts. And this goes for all our small business owners – whether they run a family farm, a commercial salmon fishing business, an auto shop, a print shop, a consulting firm, a restaurant, you name it. Our government should show them more respect by not punishing their success and limiting their ability to hire more people by over-taxing and over-reaching into their businesses. Don’t stifle their growth with burdensome regulations like Obamacare and cap-and-tax. Government should be on their side, not in their way.

I believe and trust in the strength of America’s private sector. But I sometimes fear that the current administration in Washington distrusts or discounts the individuals who have built this country; hence their belief that only a distant bureaucratic elite in D.C. can make decisions for our small businesses that will provide American opportunity. This administration’s thinking is wrong. We don’t need a command and control economy that “invests” our money in their half-baked ideas. We need freedom, reward for hard work, and a re-invigorated sense of personal responsibility and work ethic, especially among our young people.

We need to be as motivated and optimistic as our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, many of whom started out with nothing but a dream as they built a life for themselves by the sweat of their brow. They didn’t ask for bailouts. They didn’t expect anything from anyone. They wanted the freedom and opportunity to work hard and prosper by their own merits. If at first they failed, they took their lumps, dusted themselves off, got back up, and tried again until they succeeded. They didn’t retreat. They built this country and they passed on to us more prosperity and opportunity than has ever been bestowed on any generation in human history. We must not squander that inheritance. Let’s get back to their common sense values.

Sarah Palin: Obama’s SOFU a Call For More Spending and Expansion of Government

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 28, 2011

The night following Obama’s State of the Union address, Governor Palin responded on Greta von Susteren’s On The Record show.  Governor Palin called Obama out on his use of the term “investments” to cover up his calls for more government spending.   She saw his speech as a call for more expansion of the federal government. 

I was impressed by her authoritative demeanor.  In fact, she seemed to take on more the role of political opponent than that of commentator.  She seemed unfazed by the recent vicious attacks  from the left.  As she has said before, her faith carries her through.  Thank God for Sarah Palin and the voice He has given her for such a time as this!
