CNN host Piers Morgan has built his case for gun control on an apparent concern for victims of gun violence. However, that concern was not evident when he told an interviewer of his desire to see his critics taken out with machine guns. Asked about how he would treat his critics if they were appearing on Britain's Got Talent, a show on which Morgan appeared as a judge, the CNN host remarked, "I'd replace the buzzers with machine guns and just take them all out and do the public a massive favor." Morgan's penchant for mowing people down with machine guns, even in the context of a joke, is somewhat rich given that he has spent weeks pontificating about the need to ban semi-automatic assault rifles on his live CNN show. This is by no means the first time that Morgan has joked about murdering his ideological adversaries while simultaneously brow-beating second amendment advocates about the need to ban guns in order to prevent shootings. While debating Morgan's contentious interview with Alex Jones earlier this month, author Buzz Bissinger remarked, "But what do you need a semi-automatic weapon for? The only reason I think you'd need it is, Piers, challenge Alex Jones to a boxing match, show up with a semi-automatic that you got legally and pop him." "I'd love to see that," responded Huffington Post's Abby Huntsman, adding, "In uniform." "I'll borrow my brother's uniform," Morgan responded. The CNN host's supporters on Twitter later echoed Morgan's violent tendencies by calling for Alex Jones to be shot dead. Morgan caused further controversy when he admitted in a tweet that he was "standing on the graves of dead Sandy Hook children," in order to push his gun control agenda.
1/29/13 - General Colin Powell has been very critical of the Republican party in recent years, and tonight he appeared on Bill O'Reilly's show to defend his criticisms of the GOP. O'Reilly grilled Powell on why he continues to support President Obama despite the bad economic numbers and made him defend his claim that the Republican party has a problem with minorities. O'Reilly also brought up a criticism that Powell is just bitter with the party because they made him look bad following his 2003 speech before the United Nations on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Powell explained to O'Reilly that he was put off in 2008 and 2012 by the economic plans proposed by the Republican campaigns. He cited his long history of voting for Republicans and working for Republican presidents to assure O'Reilly of his credentials, before saying that he is "troubled" by the rightward shift of the party and decided Obama was the "best choice" for the presidency. O'Reilly pointed out that the economy under Obama has not been particularly kind to African-Americans. Powell said that overall the economy has improved, though he acknowledged it was not enough. He criticized the Republican party for not recognizing "fundamental demographic changes" happening in the country, suggesting that if they want to endear themselves to minorities, they cannot keep pushing for immigration and voter ID laws that adversely affect minority groups. O'Reilly pushed Powell on that last point, asking him what objection he has to voter identification. Powell said he opposes "additional levels" of ID that would disenfranchise many people, while disputing the idea that voter fraud is a widespread problem. In the second part of the interview, O'Reilly more directly took on Powell over his claim that parts of the Republican party "still look down on minorities." O'Reilly highlighted Powell's criticisms of John Sununu and Sarah Palin for, respectively, calling Obama "lazy" and criticizing his "shuck and jive" on Benghazi. Powell clarified that he does not believe Sununu and Palin and racists, but said they used language in a context that would seem racially charged to minorities, calling their remarks two examples of a more widespread "vein of intolerance" in the party. O'Reilly wrapped the interview by asking Powell a "rude question": there is some talk amongst Republicans that Powell just resents the GOP because they "made you look bad" following his testimony on WMDs in Iraq. Powell dismissed it as "a bunch of nonsense."

Intelligence Squared U.S. hosts a debate on whether the rich are taxed enough in the United States. How do we fix the economy? The U.S. government's budget deficit is nearing a trillion dollars for the fourth straight year and unemployment remains high. With the Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of 2012, what is the best move for continued economic recovery? President Obama says we should raise taxes on those making more than $250,000 to reduce the deficit. Others say that the richest 1% already pay more than a quarter of all federal taxes and higher taxes for job creators would slow economic growth. Are the nation's wealthiest not paying their "fair share," or should tax breaks be extended for everyone in the name of job creation? For the Motion: Glenn Hubbard and Arthur Laffer. Against the Motion: Robert Reich and Mark Zandi.
On his BlazeTV show last night, Glenn Beck dressed as a doctor and declared the death of the establishment Republican Party, celebrating with an appropriately-themed cake and footage of actual elephants dying. With co-host Pat Gray lying on a gurney — a metaphor for the "dead" GOP — Beck explained that "the media is celebrating the fact that the GOP is on its death bed and the president did some excessive GOP-is-dead celebrating at the inauguration as well, ignoring the 60 million Americans who voted against him." But Beck isn't angry with the president (wait, did he just break his own moratorium on mentioning "that guy"?) over such celebration, because "we're celebrating the death of the establishment GOP right along with them." Before showing off the "Death of the GOP" cake on the table behind him, Beck said that he is glad the establishment wing is dead because "they are refusing to confront the cancer within the party... progressive-lite Republicans who care about winning really more than anything else. They cave to political correctness rather than sticking to principles." The conservative host explained that the only difference between the Republicans and the Democrats is "the speed" at which they take us towards an impending fiscal crisis. He then tore into the "establishment Republicans" for wanting to give citizenship to "illegals." Playing file footage of actual elephants dying ("really, really sad," as he described it), Beck bid adieu to the GOP elephant, explaining that he isn't sad at all over such a loss. Beck went on to criticize Obama for "blaming Fox News and Rush Limbaugh" for partisan gridlock, saying that it's a good thing Fox and conservative radio personalities are able to prevent the establishment Republicans from going along with "progressive weasels." "While the elephant my be dying," he concluded, "what isn't dying is personal responsibility. How do I know? You can trust me. I'm a doctor."

“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
