I’d never heard of this show and I probably will never watch it, but thanks to disinter and watching Ed’s sickening attempt at twisting Peter Schiff’s words, I’ve come to a better understanding of the need to throw more support behind Schiff’s Senatorial campaign. You did it Mr. Ed. Donate at schiffforsenate.com.
Its interesting to see Fox News now hold a forum such as this involving a group of people like Ron Paul, Judge Napolitano, Peter Schiff, Lew Rockwell, and others who are such libertarian, pro-free market, pro-individual rights and non-neocon. Especially given the fact that only a year ago (give or take a few months) many Fox News hosts were deliberately cutting Ron Paul off when he would try to speak, misquoting him, and using all manner of underhanded techniques to marginalize him and his views, all the while promoting fascism and neoconservatism. There has definitely been a shift take place, less likely due any upsurge of good will or honesty from Fox News and more likely due to the fact that these people have been repeatedly proven right and that now the fox News viewership demands they be heard, but I could be wrong—I don’t actually ever watch the channel so maybe there has been less of a shift than I think. The fact that this forum even took place on Fox News is very interesting. Notice that even the logo has been changed here to white on a darker background instead of the usual blue and red.
I saw this on the Lew Rockwell blog and had to repost it. It’s pretty interesting, there are old clips of Peter Schiff talking about the economy on TV with other economists. They all make fun of Schiff for his views but he was the only one that turned out to be correct in the predictions he was making — a lot like Ron Paul vs. the status quo Republicans.
Here is Glenn Beck on October 13, 2008 with economist Peter Schiff.
Beck seems to finally be coming completely around to what many of us have known for quite a while. Along with making comparisons between where the U.S. is headed and the Weimar Republic, they also discuss (briefly) the likelihood of a conspiracy for an eventual global currency and the possibility of martial law in the the streets of America:
