Jon Stewart's Extended Interview With Ron Paul

Tyler Durden's picture

About a month ago, after everyone in the wholly conflicted media (just ask one question: who pays all that advertising money - nuf said), on both the left and the right, was ignoring the most promising presidential candidate this country has had in decades, Jon Stewart decided to take Ron Paul under his wing, and made it clear that while those who don't matter can pretend to ignore Ron, the one man who does, and who reaches more than most of the legacy "serious media" combined, has certainly noticed Paul. Naturally Stewart could have left it there, especially given his own personal political view. To his great credit, he did not. Instead last night in an extended exclusive interview, he presented Ron Paul in a way that he should have been presented from the beginning: no tricks, no gotchas, no gimmicks, no commercial breaks every 45 seconds. Hopefully this is the beginning of the transition of the Paul campaign to one where he has enough critical mass to be taken seriously by everyone - something "everyone" should be doing regardless.

Jon Stewart 2016??


and since we are on the topic of media blackouts, seems the MSM is mute about Ogolfer being outed as the antichrist at a fundraiser in LA's House of Blues.

If it weren’t for his extreme views on just about everything, Ron Paul might actually be a credible presidential candidate. Among Mr Paul’s other dangerous views and beliefs, the following concern me the most:

1. He supports regular audits of the Federal Reserve, which would seriously compromise their ability to set monetary policy independently without political meddling

2. He favours the end of social security which could see millions of elderly and disabled people on the streets during these tough economic times

3. He intends to legalise ALL drugs, giving children access to life-threatening substances such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin to name a few

4. Mr Paul follows the long discredited ‘Austrian school of economics’ which consists of nothing but a motley crew of eccentric and clownish anarchists

5. He supports the legalisation of gay marriage at the state level, which could see children being raised by parents of the same sex

Quite frankly, Ron Paul is an embarrassment and should leave politics to more mature professionals who know how to represent America properly.

@milliondollar-Go troll the Toronto Sun. You know that nobody in here thinks that is a remotely intelligent statement, right? At least try to be funny next time...

seriously.. milliondollar is clearly a cass sunstien mouth whore..

He's a professional deadpan comedic mastermind.


Simply stunning, fucking hilarious and I can't believe how many on this site miss the in your face deadpan snarc.


Milliondollar is a master performance artist in the great tradition of comedians.

I think its funny he/she/it can still get people fired up and take him seriously. That is the point of trolling, no?

Oh regional Indian's picture

All these actors are a part of the plunder. Why is it so hard to see that RP is AS MUCH establishment as every other serving politico. It canot be otherwise.

Pied piper for libertarian Wannabes. Otherwise, so weak a leader that he could never call/rally enough of his re-pubes around him to make any difference/ Stop a war? Reduce taxes? Block the TARP? 

Something more than tongue-wag?

Bah, Humbug. People get the "leaders" they deserve.

it does seem impossible that ron paul could be nominated, elected and avoid assassination (not to mention co-option) long enough to govern.  

but don't we have to try?  

with romney and perry trying to knock each other off, he's in a not bad tactical position.  with the nation/world reentering a recession within a depression there is/will be great incentive for voters to consider different ideas/messengers.  his main policy ideas (stop the bailouts, stop the wars) are actually popular everywhere but among the power elite.  obama is a weak and weakening opponent (as are his republican rivals).  

imo the toughest opponent is the national security state whose collective trigger finger is so so ready to take out r.p. and, say, huntsman to deliver us to the mercies of president boehner.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Jeff, look at these times we live in. obama has broken every electiion promise he made except promising more hope and change. He still looks like a happy pres and no million man march on the Capitaol, yet anyways.

Take a look a these...

Weird Hillary Stuff

I don't believe he can stand on his plank for a day once in office. 

Thus the whole charade needs to come down. Ploitics will not solve the problem.

Fox, Henhouse and all that.

Hey you know that guy that a lot of you love to hate bob_dabolina ..the guy is a total fraud. He started a blog to prove what a great trader he is. Claims he turned 100,000 into 2.4M this year. What he failed to mention is that it was in a TOS papertrading account. It is fucking easy to push the buy and sell button when you have no real money at risk.

Check out these images of today's latest post where he claims to have made $62,000 today. If you look closely at the detail on the screenshot of his position statement you will see a button that says Reset All Positions. This button doesn't exist in a real trading account with real money. Coincidently(not) all TOS Papertrade accounts start with $100,000.

I seriously hope bob_dabolina is a 16 year old who is just fucking around with everyone, because if he is an adult all I can say a pathetic excuse for a man!


IEVI's picture

After I called Bob out on his blog he edited the screen shot of his "trade" and erased my post where I pointed out the reset button to another poster. What a douche!

bob_dabolina's picture

I didn't erase shit, 

I'll do ANOTHER fucking post on this BS

IEVI's picture

You cropped the original screenshot to remove the Reset All Positions button.

bob_dabolina's picture


I just posted a full screenshot asshole (with my acct # redacted) I've done this before on multiple pages for other assholes. 

You're paranoid

IEVI's picture

I think you are losing your mind. Your new screenshot shows your P/L  for today as 0 (as in money...nada) What happened to the $165,000 in profit  that you claimed you made on /GC in the previous post titled

Closeout: Two hours + $165,000

I've beaten this dead horse, and will continue to do so. Ron Paul's wife and daughters are in the Order of the Eastern Star, the masonic order. He has ties to a secret society like every other president. This likely assures he will win, and people will cheer. So what if he wants to sell all our gold, which would address all of about 3% of the national debt. People keep saying Ron Paul doesn't get any media coverage, but that's just untrue. He gets plenty. ZeroHedge readers, if you are as educated as you think you are, be wary of this guy. If you want a real champion of the truth without strings attached check out Chuck Baldwin. Most of you probably don't know who he is anyway. He is what Ron Paul is painted as, but the genuine article.

tip e. canoe's picture

whose gold is that?   not my gold, yours?   you mean the gold that was stolen in the first place?   you sure it's still there?   you sure it isn't already sold or leased or pledged as collateral against loans that can never be paid back?   is that the gold you're referring to?

jeff montanye's picture

jack napier: that ron paul's wife and daughter are in the order of the eastern star (and he has ties to (other?) unstated secret societies) assures him of a win?  really?  

Hendiesel's picture

You are a goober an should be checked in a mental ward.. Although Ron should be elected, he will not because most of the people in the U.S are brainwashed by television, radio, and other media outlets. Expect Obama to be re-elected because our people are complete SHEEP!

IEVI's picture

I have a TOS account, if you made $165,000 in /GC today it would be there in your latest screenshot, under P/L Day...geez you are pathetic!

55 men's picture

Wow! nice investigative work. The other day he was calling out Tmosely for making a bad call but on the other hand it was okay for him to make a bad call. Total hypocrite.

Sequitur's picture

IEVI I think you exposed this guy. "Reset all positions" is not in a trader account. And that P/L showing "0" is a dead giveaway.

Fraudster. Lawlz.

bob_dabolina's picture

WTF ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!!!! Are you complaining about how I have my layout set up?

Sequitur's picture

If you made $165,000 today, it would show under your P/L column. Right now, showing zero.


IEVI's picture

Here's the latest screenshots from his blog.

Where's your profit in G/C Bobby? You claim on your blog you made $165,000 today.

Sequitur's picture

This is turning out to be quite the detective caper. Look at all the action on his site at

Sequitur's picture

IEVI HOLY SHIT -- now he's altering his computer images to argue it was after midnight and the numbers reset. Yet you SAVED the image showing an 11:00 p.m. print on his screen. Plus his account shows it's still the same day.

Fucking exposed.

55 men's picture

You guys better save that for when he comes back... Use it for future ammo.

IEVI's picture

Here's a screenshot of my account with a later time than his. Check out the P/L Day under /SIH2 

Mine didn't reset and neither did his, we are both PST.


Sequitur's picture

IEVI, you have a screenshot with his computer at 11:00 p.m. So do I. Then he goes and changes it to 12:00 p.m., and tries to argue it "reset" at midnight. Fucking lawlz, TD Ameritrade doesn't work that way.

Stick a fork in him, he's done. As is that bullshit website. FINISHED.

Dabolina "account" showing zero activty and zero P/L with 11:00 p.m. computer timestamp:

And here is Dabolina "altered" image, now arguing it is "after" midnight because of computer screen time:

Yeep, both accounts reflect not a fucking thing at risk, no positions, no money made/lost. 



IEVI's picture

In TOS the futures reset at midnight CST. Since his platform and mine are set to PST the futures P/L would reset at 22:00 PST

His first screenshot shows a time of 20:01 PST and his second shows 20:49 PST ..both before the reset.

Proof of how TOS platform works:

bob_dabolina is a total fraud!

Fuck all the establishment presstitute hores and everything else.

I'm voting for Ron Paul even if I have to write his name in.

CrazyCooter's picture

The only thing I can add to this wonderful comment is to PRIMARY for Ron Paul ... that means register Republican! If you are a Democrat, what better way to scuttle the Republican odds against Obama than <cough/> getting Ron Paul on the ticket. What could possibly go wrong?



donsluck's picture

And THAT'S why I'm registered republican!

psst, Mom, Robo and I were on Facebook chatting, he's well, ... worried about you ...  He is kinda' embarrassed that you are hangin' around his old turf.  But, well, ... er ... that is OK by him, it is just that, well, he's kinda' embarrassed.  'cuz, when he was growing up, youi, well, insisted that he learn how to read.  And, you see, he's worried that you can't see the entry on a post called, well "reply".  You see, that allows you to actually, well, reply to the person you are talking to.

But that was always his ... er ... issue.  You'd hang around, not answer to his questions, talk trash (I'm quoting here!), and, well, steal his girlie books.

So, he was wishing if you'd use the "reply" button.  Thanks.

There may be a chance Herman Cain wins and chooses Paul as Vice President then Paul may have a chance but only if something should happen to Cain while in office.

Otherwise Paul hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of winning. :o

I admire Paul and do agree with much of what he says, however I believe to many of the uneducated voting populace thinks he's a kook. Come to think about it because of this Cain, if nominated which is another long shot, may have to chose someone other than Paul for VP.

I also respect Paul's persistence because he brings to light much of the contempt of basic Constitutional principles that policy makers often interfere with.

The odds right now are with Romney, Perry, and possibly Christie should he throws his hat into the ring. If Christie runs I believe he would have a chance of winning.

I was waiting for someone to mention Cain -

Go Cain!

RP is so ... yesterday ...

Cain ... the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City ... and Ron Paul as VP? Are you a fucking moron?
