Jon Stewart Rips Into Rumsfeld’s Lies

Jon Stewart and Ray McGovern
From crooksandliars.com

“The Daily Show” looks at the Rumsfeld record.

“The Daily Show” host does to Rumsfeld exactly what CIA veteran Ray McGovern did last week: throw Rumsfeld’s lies back in his face.


Crooks and Liars:

Jon Stewart had a grand old time of picking apart Rumsfeld and the media over Ray McGovern’s question to “the Donald.” After Rumsfeld denies saying he told us where WMD’s were in Iraq. He plays the tape of Rummy telling us exactly the opposite.

Stewart: To be fair Rumsfeld probably never saw that episode of MTP…

Then as usual we get treated to a round up of the 24/7 talking heads and how they responded to McGovern. The real gem was a special done about Rumsfeld by FOX News. Showing pictures of Donald doing one-arm push-ups had me rolling. Just another fun night with The Daily Show…

The Federal Reserve Has Created the Risk of a Global Depression!

Please sign, publish or forward our Abolish the Federal Reserve Petition at
http://www.petitiononline.com/fed/petition.html  to all your pro-freedom friends and associates.

The collapsing dollar, exploding oil and food prices, falling housing market, the subprime mortgage and growing credit crisis and stock market weakness are all a result of earlier Federal Reserve actions designed to maximize Wall Street and banking profits at the expense of productive, working people around the world.

Mr. Chris Lowe
I agree that the Federal Reserve board has taken over the effects of our sovereign currency. It is absolutely a private non government institution therefore their authority to create US Dollars (federal reserve notes) is unconstitutional. As/per my previous article - they do not invest any money of their own and they collect the Prime Rate Interest for absolutely nothing.
Read the US Constitution. It was only supposed to be a temporary unpopular amendment, to pay for the first World War.
read the US Constitution their functions are prohibited by our Constitution. The amendment also states that the Federal Reserve Board can be bought back for 420 million dollars and that it can not be bought back with borrowed funds. It would only cost about $2.00 per citizen. (they have enslaved our nation)
Amerian workers are having to work 16 hour days - just to make ends meet. The fed’s system does not allow common workers to save money - millions are constantly impoverished. (plagued by repossessions)
The twelve district’s 12 Federal Reserve Banks are also private and non government Banks and they control the entire US Ntion.
America seems to be influenced by the auspices of the Jewish Lobby - The “American Israel Political Action Committee”.
Israel is not America - Israel recieves billions of our American tax dollars in aid and guaranteed loans “per year”.
America is at War in Iraq in defense of Israel And America is flooded with Jewish politicians.
America is at risk of a serious Economic Collapse.

Sorry Chris but I believe and I believe it strongly - The Federal Reserve Board has outlived it’s usefulness. They are choking America to death.

I enjoyed seeing Stewart tear into the three stooges that are Zahn, Cooper, and Carlson. American journalism, most of it, is trash or sob stories. The days of real journalism are gone and I doubt anyone will see the likes of Cronkite or Edward R. Murrow again.

Granted the war was Keynesian in origin, I get your point. Just look at the very cabinet this man came in with. Oil and Military heads. Powell, Condi straight through the gammit. Bush’s first scandal was taking awaty the black berets from the black berets.

The point i don’t get is your total lack of understanding of The Federal reserve—don’t drink so much of that Kool-aid. The system is actually quite brilliant once you understand it and gold and silver standards were a nightmare failure. Really there’s alot of internet Kool-aid out there on the topic. Learning the truth isn’t a conspiracy.

Seeing those three TV Idiots burned by Stewart was excellent. It’s like, finally these morons on TV get shown for what they are—biased shills for the GOP and the President.

I just can’t believe any even moderately intelligent human being can stomch people like Cooper and Tucker with their illogical, intellectually bankrupt, emotional-based, biased reporting. Hardly a single objective phrase ever comes out of these people’s mouths.

Mr. Sandoval,
The constitution was amended to create the Federal Reserve Board—it was a co-optation in favor of big business of the “sub-treasury” plan of the People’s Party (a.k.a. Populists) who were trying to help out rural people being driven off the land by tight credit controlled by big banks & railroads. 

The amendment that created the Fed was linked reasonably closely to two others:  direct popular election of senators, and change of the taxation provisions to allow the income tax.  In particular, it represented oligarchical fears that democratization of the Senate might lead to “too much” popular control over the economy.  So the Fed was created to take key economic powers out of the hands of the electorate. 

Gold has no more intrinsic value than paper money—like paper money, it is a symbol. 

Chris Lowe

In his 2003 state of the union speech George W Bush “Lied” when he said; Iraq had 25,000 liters of Anthrax, 38,000 liters of Botulinum Toxin, and 500 Tons of Sarin; also Mustard and VX nerve agents. (these quantaties were made up – no source was mentioned)  Bush also “Lied”  stating that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Vice President Cheney “Lied” when he said; Iraq has a Nuclear Weapons program that is making progress. Secretary of State Colin Powell “Lied” when he said; Iraq had “Biological Weapons Laboratories” on rails and Chemical Weapons Bunkers.  (an absolute falsehood) Secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld lied when he stated that the Iraq War had nothing whatever to do with the “oil business.”
Ex deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz (now President of The World Bank)  “Lied” when he consistently drove home the point, that Saddam Hussein had Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction. He was the prime architect, designer of this WMD excuse for the War in Iraq. Paul Wolfowitz, represents Israel, more than our United States.
Therefore, the Iraq invasion is baseless and unjustified, Iraq was not threatening America, and we should bring our troops home as soon as possible. (600 Million dollars per/day)
Fact is; The Washington Liers Club (Bush administration) launched this illegal War in order to increase the US National debt to the non govt. Federal Reserve Board – so they could collect “The Prime Rate Interest” for fictitious Fiat paper money loans to the US Treasury. (the Iraq War is costing 600 Million dollars per/day plus prime rate interest)
It is hard to imagine what the gross economic effects will be, as a result of this hellacious Taxpayer’s expense. America is now in risk of a future economic collapse. The attack on The World Trade Center was by Osama Bin Laden not Saddam Hussein. (Iraq is not Al Qaeda) Iraq is not Pakistan, Iraq is not Saudi Arabia – 16 of the terrorists of 9/11 were from Saudi Arabia. It is understood, that we are fighting a mysterious unaproachable enemy. The Federal Reserve Board is a private non government institution!
As per our constitution; no one can authorize or create US Currency, only the US Congress – this authority cannot be delegated. Therefore; The Federal Reserve Board function is unconstitutional.
Here is how it is done;  When our government needs money – the congress asks the Federal Reserve Board – the “Fed” writes an “uncashable check” that authorizes the printing of “Fiat paper money” (there is no transfer of money or anything of value) . Then the money is printed (Federal Reserve Notes) to cover the check.
( Fiat paper money) (not backed by Silver or Gold)
US Taxpayers pay the “prime rate of interest” for the use of our own printed currency.
The Fed pays no taxes, anywhere, and they never invest any money of their own – they get the “prime rate interest” for nothing. Many states have moved to abolish The Federal Reserve Board on the basis that it is unconstitutional and many more will follow.
The move, does not progress because their Lobbyists (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) is busy stopping the move to abolish the Federal Reserve Board. End
