Judd Weiss interviewed by Jan Helfeld

While at the International Students For Liberty Conference in DC last weekend, I sat down for an interview with the famous Jan Helfeld, notorious for tripping up famous politicians and media figures with difficult ideological questions. He employs a type of Socratic questioning to get their fundamental principles, which always exposes their contradictions and humiliates them on camera for being inconsistent at best, or hypocritical and lacking integrity at worst. Press secretaries usually pull the plug and motion to abruptly end the interview. His major media figure guests are not expecting his line of questioning, most of the time they get violently hostile when they end the interview, and I’m amazed that Jan is still able to successfully get these interviews with major figures after over 2 decades of this.

So when Jan asked to interview me, I told him to do his worst, dial it up to 10, and find a chink in my armor. I think I was the first person he’s ever interviewed to come out unscathed! I don’t know what all the other interviewees are a complaining so much about. Next time he needs to ramp it up a bit and try harder! I guess my background in philosophy paid off. To be honest, after the fact I realize I could definitely answer the questions more succinctly and articulately, but considering that I was completely put on the spot and I had no talking points ready at all, I think I did ok.

Enjoy ;)

The Art of Smearing the Tea Baggers – Part 2

The Art of Smearing the Tea Baggers - Part 2

This is a continuation of my latest article:

“If you believe that government shouldn’t tax you and spend away your future then you must be a RACIST!!!”

Have you read it?
No? Go read it and come back.

This is eye-opening. I guess those in the Mainstream Media feel so emboldened with their power as a significant source for spreading information, that they believe they can just discredit and eliminate any movement that might be bothersome to their agenda.

I got several emails from my last article asking me to give some evidence of the media smearing the Tea Party. Ok, valid, the following is just a drop from a small splash in the wave of media smearing of the Tea Party.

First off, Guys… I have something to tell you. I just found out I’m in love. Yes, it’s true. Oh my god, this girl is AMAZING! I just found this right now. Dana Loesch held her own against Hardball’s Chris Matthews’ relentless attempts to smear the Tea Party movement, and made the argument I made in my last post better than I possibly could have on air. Behold:

 
There are many examples of smearing:   Continue Reading >>

If you believe government shouldn't tax you and spend away your future then you must be a RACIST!!!

Today is Tax day. Here’s my special article to celebrate.

It’s very likely that you know someone who is crushed under a huge debt he/she can’t get free of. Well that’s what happens when you spend much more than you make. You’ll have to pay for it at some point in the future. And when the future becomes due, life becomes hard. The extra financial burden and lack of new credit sucks.

Let’s say you’re in debt, but it wasn’t you who spent it. Let’s say a buddy started running your card and buying a bunch of things you don’t want for people you don’t know. He’s got an idea to help some people out, so that’s cool, right? That’s legit? But he didn’t buy a few hundred dollars worth of stuff. The dude ran your bill up to $78,000! WTF? That’s more than your yearly salary, it’ll take years to pay off. Besides, you thought your credit limit was like only $7000. Well that’s ok, your friend managed to raise your credit limit to infinity, so there’s no telling how much he’ll make you responsible for, plus compounding interest. And.. he’s.. only.. just.. getting.. started.

What!? You don’t like it? Too bad motherfucker! If you don’t like it, you’re a RACIST!!!

Now I’ve seen a lot of media smearing over the years, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much smearing as what’s being done to the Tea Party.

This is vicious.   Continue Reading >>
