Yes, we have a mole at CNBC, and she managed to sneak a peek at an advance copy of tonight’s debate questions. (Check out the Debate Live Blog thread here.)
Here’s what our mole was able to memorize and send in:
Herman Cain: “As you know, Mr. Cain, CNBC is a financial news network, and tonight’s debate is focused on economic issues. You have decades of experience in the business world creating jobs and turning around failing companies. How did you find time to develop your 9-9-9 Plan in between your horrific and brutal repeated sexual assaults, sexual harassment, rapes, tortures, dismemberments and murders of blonde white women, young boys, and barnyard animals? Do you regret not killing more of your victims? Do you want to kill me now? Is my life in danger? Help! Police!”
Jon Huntsman: “Mr. Huntsman, the Obama Administration appointed you Ambassador to China, and you speak fluent Mandarin. I, for one, think you’re extremely reasonable, intelligent and moderate, for a Republican. What will you do, as President, to continue the Obama Administration’s trade policies and ensure that secret U.S. defense technology continues to flow to China so they keep buying our T-Bills?”
Rick Perry: “Did you get the 5-Hour Energy Drink we sent to your dressing room? What about the Red Bull? Like the rest of the mainstream media, we’ve given you far more news coverage than all the other candidates in the race, and we declared you the “Frontrunner” within moments of your announcing your candidacy. Why isn’t it working? Why aren’t you higher in the polls? What else can we do? It’s making us look bad that you’re behind GINGRICH, for God’s sake! WAKE UP! We’re trying to get you nominated!”
Herman Cain: “Have you sexually harassed any other women in the past few minutes? Would you sexually harass Michelle Bachmann? Or do you only go for blonde white women?”
Ron Paul: “You’re more of an expert in economics, monetary policy, and the Federal Reserve than anyone onstage. So we’re going to ask you about foreign policy. You’re one of only two veterans onstage tonight. You want the U.S. to stop policing the world and involving U.S. troops in foreign civil wars. In short, you want to bring home the troops. You get more campaign contributions from members of the military than all other candidates combined, including our gifted and articulate president, Mr. Barack Obama, who I met at the Correspondents Dinner last year, and frankly, he couldn’t have been nicer. He even signed an autograph for me. Apparently, the top three donors to your campaign are members of the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, and U.S. Navy. Do you think this is because active duty military are lazy, or is it because they are cowards?”
Herman Cain: “We’re getting reports that a sixth anonymous woman who lives in David Axelrod’s apartment building and works for the Obama Administration has made vague and unsubstantiated claims about something you may have done or said that may have made her feel uncomfortable between 13 and 27 years ago. What are the details of this allegation? Don’t you agree, it’s the seriousness of the charge that is important?”
Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum: “Let’s be honest. This debate is about the economy, but frankly, we know all you GOP kooks agree that taxes are too high, business is over-regulated, and the government is broke. So we’re going to talk about social issues, because we know that’s the only thing that can alienate the libertarians. Since this is the only time we’re going to call on either of you, please take a minute to remind America how you would each imprison pregnant women to keep them from having abortions, and detail your plans to round up and kill all the gays.”
Newt Gingrich: “Despite our best efforts, you appear to be rising in the polls at the expense of one of our hand-picked candidates, Rick Perry. So we’d like to take a moment to remind the voters that you’re a cruel, heartless bastard who gave his wife cancer, put her in the hospital, had an affair with all of the nurses on duty in her hospital bed in front of her, bribed the surgeon to sew divorce papers into her body, then killed her and brought her back to life so you could kill her again, in front of your children. And it looks like we don’t have time for a response, so let’s move on to the only candidate in the field who looks Presidential, Mitt Romney, the celebrated and wise former governor of that thriving beacon of economic success, Massachusetts.
Mitt Romney: “First, Mr. Romney, I’d like to apologize for interrupting your campaign speech with short outbursts from these other so-called candidates. It won’t happen again. And thank you for sending over that autographed copy of your book with that “special bookmark.” Please take as much time as you need in the next hour to personally attack any other Republican candidate. Except Ron Paul, of course, because then the news stories would have to include the words ‘Ron Paul,’ and our destruction of his campaign depends upon us keeping his plans to save America a secret.
Here’s a very serious question for you, Mr. Romney. When the Herman Cain campaign blamed the campaign of your rival Rick Perry to giving us the story of his decades of horrific rapes and serial murders of defenseless blonde white women, were you satisfied with how quickly we got the word out? Is there anything else we can do to keep this story alive?
We’ve suppressed coverage of New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, just as you asked.
So, did you get the fruit basket we left in your dressing room? Is the lighting good for you? Would you like us to move the other candidates further off to the side?”
My dad has a quaint saying that he picked up while he was serving on the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Forrestal: “Money Talks and Sh*t Walks.”
So, what does the money say about Cocktail Party Establishment pick Mittens Romneycare–annoined the “frontrunner” by the Government-Controlled Media? And, by way of contrast, what does it say about GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul, whose media coverage blackout is so comically biased that it inspired a segment on The Daily Show and a three-day “Black This Out” fundraiser?
A recent independent analysis of fundraising by OpenSecrets.org reveals an interesting contrast between the employers of the top 3 sources of campaign contributions among the Top Tier candidates (yes, Ron Paul is #3 in fundraising among all GOP candidates–betcha didn’t read that in the Government-Controlled Media.)
Mittens Romneycare’s top contributors are employees of Goldman Sachs, recipient of over $3.8 billion in U.S. taxpayer bailouts, Credit Suisse Group (recipient of $287 billion in secret bailouts from the Federal Reserve), and Morgan Stanley, recipient of at least 31 secret loans from the Federal Reserve totaling billions of dollars.
Mittens Romneycare is the status-quo choice of some of Wall Street’s worst offenders when it comes to sucking bailout money out of the pockets of U.S. taxpayers. Is it any wonder why the Government-Controlled Media is shoving this horror show of a candidate down our throats, while at the same time, gifting the Soros-Funded OWS Pee Party with 24/7 wall-to-wall “news” coverage?
It’s a SETUP, people.
The Government-Controlled Media is building up Mittens Romneycare knowing full well that it already has all the ammunition it needs to tear him right back down, using the Pee Party Pro-Testers complaints against Wall Street as “proof” that Mittens Romneycare is an evil, corrupt crony capitalist. (Which, incidentally, he is.)
Let me say that again. The top presidential candidate of members of our active-duty military is GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul. He beats ALL GOP candidates AND Barack Hussein Obama (who, incidentally, is not a Muslim.)
GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul has made a career fighting against federal government corruption and cronyism–particularly at the Federal Reserve. Most Americans think the Federal Reserve a government agency. But it’s actually a privately-owned central bank.
The Federal Reserve is allegedly supposed to regulate the value of the American dollar, and prevent booms, busts and bubbles. Like the mortgage bubble that has been destroying the U.S. economy for the past several years. But in reality, it’s simply a massive slush fund that facilitates massive corruption and intergenerational theft. It’s a tool of members of the Ruling Class like Barack Hussein Obama and Mittens Romneycare, whose campaigns are funded largely by banks whose employees sit on the board of directors of the Federal Reserve, as reported by ABC in a random act of journalism:
…the Federal Reserve consulted with [Obama donor] General Electric on the creation of a commercial paper funding facility and then provided $16 billion in financing to the company while its chief executive, Jeffrey Immelt, served as a director on the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Immelt is now President Obama’s “jobs czar.”
JP Morgan Chase could also have benefited from its chief executive Jamie Dimon’s position on the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, according to the GAO. The bank received emergency loans from the Federal Reserve at the same time it served as the clearinghouse for the Fed’s emergency lending program.
The Federal Reserve gave JP Morgan Chase an 18-month exemption from risk-based leverage and capital requirements in 2008, the same year that the Fed gave it $29 billion to acquire Bear Stearns, according to the GAO.
Mittens Romneycare and Barack Hussein Obama are both cut from the same cloth. A Mittens Romneycare victory in November 2012 would be a continuation of the same crony capitalism that has bankrupted America and given real free-market capitalism a black eye.
So is it any wonder that the Government-Controlled Media (98% of whom are Democrats) gives Mittens Romneycare the label of “frontrunner” while giving GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul the least coverage of any candidate overall, according to the Pew Research Center?
Even GOP Frontrunner Sarah Palin supports Ron Paul in his bid to audit the Federal Reserve.
Once you understand the origins of the Federal Reserve, how the Fed benefits members of the Ruling Class like Barack Hussein Obama and Mitt Romney, government bailouts of top Democrat fundraisers on Wall Street, and “mainstream media” coverage, you get an entirely different picture of the GOP primary process.
Handpicked media darling Mittens Romneycare stands for the status quo–more bailouts, more crony capitalism, more Cocktail Parties. GOP Frontrunner Ron Paul want to slash the federal government’s budget by $1 trillion in his first year in office, end the Federal Reserve, and end the bailouts. And vastly different media coverage of both candidates is a direct reflection of this.

I truly, sincerely want the readers of Hillbuzz to come together to defeat the Marxist-In-Chief. And I try to point out groupthink, eeyorism, and rumormongering with absurdity whenever I can. It’s one thing to familiarize yourself with a candidate’s views–and disagree with them. It’s quite another to unquestioningly swallow LSM propaganda and never make any effort to find out the truth for yourself.
I think about 70% of the crap spread around about Tea Party candidates is the same-old, same-old “you’re a RAAAAACIST and you hate the environment and you want us all to die from polluted air and you hate gay people and you want to kill old people” B.S. put out by paid DNC operatives and repeated ad nauseum on MSNBC, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, etc. and even Fox News on occasion. Much of the rest is put out by Establishment Cocktail Party candidate’s campaigns and/or supporters.
Sarah Palin has to deal with this B.S. for going on 4 years (“She’s a RAAAAACIST and hates the environment and hates gay people and she’s a quitter and stupid and she thinks she can see Russia from her house.” But even if 70% is manufactured outrage/fear, that leaves a few people on our side who actually believe this stuff that has no basis in reality. And I’m truly baffled as to how to reach out to them.
In this era of sound bites, very few of these people are willing to educate themselves. Learning about foreign policy and monetary policy and economic policy takes time and effort, and most of us who are government-educated didn’t learn any of this in school.
Another thing we didn’t learn in school is critical thinking skills. Hillbuzzers know why Sarah Palin resigned as governor of Alaska. Her family was over $700,000 in debt from legal defense against totally bogus ethics charges filed by her political enemies. Most normal people understand that no one would stay in a job that cost your family five times as much as your salary. But there are plenty of real live conservatives who parrot, “she’s unelectable because she’s a quitter!!” That perjorative label, “quitter,” is enough for some people reading this to throw Sarah Palin on the scrap heap.
So, Hillbuzz readers, all of you put together are smarter than I am by myself. When it comes to Tea Party candidates, how do we get our friends and neighbors to start thinking instead of reacting? How do we get them to start researching instead of parroting?
Have you been through a conversion experience like Kevin DuJan’s? What was your “wake-up call?” When do you remember realizing that you had been sold a bill of goods? What was it that finally broke through years of LSM brainwashing? And how can we use it to reach out to our friends and neighbors who are still getting their information from the LSM?
ACTION ITEM: Create debate team style flashcards to help people better counter the Left’s talking points when surrogate speaking
Here’s something else you can do to help counter the media and Left’s (redundancy alert!) talking points against the Tea Party and conservatives: if you ever took debate in school, are a teacher, or are just great at organizing information, you can help collect all the instances of the Left’s hypocrisy you are seeing emerge right now into debate team style flashcards that people can use to better counter any Leftists they encounter in the world.
What we’d like to create are simple, easy to follow, easy to memorize cards with solid facts that can be ready to go any time the Left gins up its propaganda machine in the media and attempts to politicize a tragedy to attack the Tea Party, Governor Palin, or other conservatives.
We’ll create a page here at HB where we will keep these available on an ongoing basis so the resource will always exist online somewhere. You can print these cards and keep them in a recipe box at home so that you can practice your debating skills if you are a person who finds her or himself in frequent situations where Leftists are spouting the latest talking points off MSNBC or CNN. These people rarely have any facts, and they have never done any personal research on the topic. They just parrot what Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, Anderson Cooper, and Chris Matthews say on TV. If you have information available already queued up and practiced, with cold hard facts, you’ll leave these Leftists sputtering and stammering…and more likely than not cause them to get irrationally emotional and stomp away, maybe even in tears. Don’t laugh, I’ve seen this happen.
Here are two ways you can assist this project right now:
(1) Chime in on this thread with any statements you hear the Left make on a regular basis. Such as, “The Tea Party is racist”, “Sarah Palin is the new Anita Bryant”, “Conservatives are responsible for the shooting”. List things the Left tosses out as fact that aren’t.
(2) Create a fact-based, sourced, rebuttal to these common Leftist statements…with an emphasis on creating easy to remember verbiage and witty turns of phrase that would work well in a debate.
That’s the key to ultimately putting the Leftists in their place: treating these encounters as debates you are prepared to win, instead of casual chance encounters in a bar or grocery store where Leftists expect to have the upper hand and take people off guard, or never in their wildest dreams imagine they would be challenged on something.
The reason the Left dominates this country despite only 20% of the population being Leftists is because conservatives have not invested the time and effort into being well-prepared and organized for these debates.
Let’s change that.
Heaven knows the Cocktail Party GOP establishment is not going to do this yeoman’s work, or any work at all, or be good for anything, so it’s up to the grassroots amateurs like all of us. As usual.
If you have been sitting at home sick to your stomach over what the Left has done to politicize this weekend’s tragedy for Democrat gain, and you have been wondering how you can help, this is a free and easy way for you to use the critical thinking and reason God gave you to help the conservative cause.
