    • No Alien Invasion And No Rate Hike – Ep. 197
      Aliens didn’t invade the Earth, and the Federal Reserve didn’t raise interest rates If you remember, I was pegging the probability of each at roughly the same True to form, the Federal Reserve did pretty much exactly what I thought they were going to do and not raise interest rates Now I thought they might […] The post No Alien Invasion And No Rate Hike – Ep […]

      We got a lot of economic data released today, most of it bad, and most of it worse than expected What I did not expect was that the market shrugged it off Initially, there was a little reaction; gold jumped $3 but it never gained momentum and it rolled over to -$10 at the time […] The post Hedge Fund Billionaires Finally Calling Out The Fed – Ep. 195 appeare […]

      Today was a day of damage control for the Federal Reserve It almost seems like whenever they discuss the possibility of a rate hike, they’re really launching a trial balloon They want to gauge the possibility of a rate hike and then if the market kind of shrugs it off, or blesses the rate hike […] The post Fed Cavalry Charges To Market’s Rescue Ep. 194 appea […]
    • Negative Rates Will Kill Growth
      By: Peter Schiff, President and CEO Euro Pacific Capital For years I have argued that ultra-low interest rates act more as an economic sedative than a stimulant. This idea has elicited laughter from the economic establishment.

Ron Paul’s big week

Black this Out, October 19th

This is going to be a big week for Ron Paul.  Yesterday he just unveiled his new budget proposal, dubbed the “Plan to Restore America,” which will cut $1 trillion in the first year of his presidency, abolish five federal apartments, end the wars, cut taxes, balance the budget in three years and last but not least, reduce the presidential pay from $400K to $39K, which is the median income per worker in America.  For most libertarians, that’s a good start.  Hopefully abolishing the IRS and the income tax will come after that.  But in all seriousness, Paul is one of the only presidential candidates who is taking a critical look at our fiscal situation and has a plan that takes steps to reduce our debt burden immediately.  Most candidates want to tinker with small details (ie. no more earmarks!) or just give empty rhetoric, but Paul has a solid plan to get the economy out of the crapper and restore our freedom.

The other big event this week is Ron Paul’s “Black This Out” money bomb on October 19th, which plans to be the biggest fundraising day for Paul all year.  The name is meant to be a sarcastic reference to the way Ron Paul is being treated by the media, who have been following a golden rule: pretend Ron doesn’t exist.  Many online blogs are promoting this Money Bomb by putting black censors boxes over their avatar’s faces (such as the image above), or striking out Ron Paul’s name in blog or twitter posts.  The grassroots have been sick and tired of the intentional disregard of Paul as a serious candidate, despite him winning most online debate polls and many straw polls such as the California GOP and Value Voter poll in DC.  His coverage out of all candidates has been dead last, despite his polling numbers having him consistently in third place, or second place is certain early primary states.  This new study by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism has vindicated our complaints.
