HUH? MSNBC’s Velshi Uses Edited Video to BASH Conservative ‘Fetish‘ About Debt
NewsBusters ^ | 8/12/2020 | Joseph Vazquez

MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi tried to twist Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s remarks to NBC’s Today in March to claim that conservatives have a “fetish” about debt.


Filling in for the insufferable Chris Hayes on Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s All In, Velshi inundated viewers with propaganda. He spewed that GOP leaders were “pretending that there’s just not enough money to help Americans. They say we cannot afford another large relief bill.” Still, he later levied a bizarre accusation that the GOP was “deceiving Americans” and conforming to a “conservative fetish about poor people getting freebies and running up the national debt.” [emphasis added.] Saying conservatives have a “fetish” about “running up the national debt” is like saying liberals have a “fetish” about tax cuts.

Theoretically, journalists seek to “speak Truth to Power”.

But they abandoned the concept of Truth a long time ago. Now all they have left is the Narrative which is handed to them by the Powerful.

Problems with the national debt are vastly overstated.

There is plenty of money to go around. The mint can print money like there’s no tomorrow. Money comes from trees and ink and cute designs. Easy to do.

We can produce money and never run out of it.

The MSNBC guy is correct.

Kamala is also looking forward to the day when she can pardon all of the FBI FISA fakers, and all those involved in the Russia/Trump fake scandal.

She’s also looking for a way to indict Trump after he leaves office, just for becoming president when Hillary had the election stolen from her.

We don't even need ink and paper, just reloadable EBT cards.
Why do we even have taxes?

I saw that guy. Jose something. That’s literally what he said. The Bernie Bros. are the battered spouse of the Democrat Party.

Monetary manipulation renders the pesky Free Market obsolete (Some may think that is a good idea, especially MMT&P’ers)
Service the interest, which is quickly growing to become the largest expenditure
Gives way to an authoritative tag-team of government and banks
Bond ratings/attractiveness fall due to trillions of variables mainly artificially keeping rates low
Savings are shot to Hades
Dollar is watered down
Stupid tax (Inflation, only 2% they say, lol) is lauded (By those who suck the teat of banks and government) as the petrodollar continues to be worshiped
Purchasing power gets watered down
Risk management is a thing of the past of “favored institutions” leading to more dissaray
Living standards deteriorate
If (When) the recycling of the petrodollar dissapates, the fun times are just around the corner (Hard to "control" inflation then)
Massive increase of taxes to boost government assets/receivables (If MMT&P is completely enacted, large increases in fact to curb inflation to “the right percentage”)/and hyper-public spending to people that are smart enough not to work in the Utopia of Money Grows on Trees economy
Those that work will just be slaves to the system
As animosity reaches its crest, the really fun times begin
