Whichever way Congressmen Anthony Weiner and Henry Waxman put it, their latest charade is a backdoor attempt to stifle conservative talk radio. Announced earlier today through a press release by the Weiner himself, a hearing has been set by the Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection for September 23 to investigate gold-selling companies. Since gold-selling companies often advertise on cable news networks and conservative talk radio, it's become a target for Democrats, who want everyone investing in T-Bills to fund the debt they've created for America.
"Under Rep. Weiner's bill, companies like Goldline would be required to disclose the reasonable resale value of items being sold."
As Seeking Alpha pointed out, this is the equivilent of printing on every U.S. dollar that it's expected the value will be eroded by inflation. This is part of the Democrat's agenda and has nothing to do with consumer protection. Quite frankly, it has nothing to do with gold. It's another attempt to silence conservative talk radio.
Anyone who listens to Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Andrew Wilkow, etc., has heard these talk show hosts promote gold-selling companies, and the stations are abundant with their commercials. Advertising isn't free. The ads keep these shows on the air with the revenue they provide the radio stations. At the same time, if these gold-selling companies weren't making money, they wouldn't have money to advertise.
Here are the facts: At a time when the economy is in the tank and home repossessions are at a record high, consumers have looked to gold as a stable investment asset. It's that simple. The government already taxes gold at a higher rate than long-term capital gains. But as we noted earlier, the government wants this money in T-Bills.
Taken directly from Weiner's press release:
"Goldline employs several conservative pundits to act as shills for its' [sic] precious metal business, including Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, Laura Ingraham, and Fred Thompson. By drumming up public fears during financially uncertain times, conservative pundits are able to drive their narrative. Glenn Beck for example has dedicated entire segments of his program to explaining why the U.S. money supply is destined for hyperinflation with Barack Obama as president."
Does it sound like this hearing is focused on gold-selling companies or conservative talk radio hosts? That's what we thought, but this is what it's come to with the Democrats. They see the power and truth of conservative talk radio and want it silenced. It's really not even a backdoor tactic; it's pretty obvious. The power behind talk radio has helped provide a voice for the Tea Party movement, a true, grassroots group of individuals, which poses the biggest threat to their massive, authoritarian government agenda.
The best part of the situation is that, along with Goldline International, the Consumers Union, and the Federal Trade Commission, little Weiner may call the billionaire Nazi-collaborator George Soros to the stand as a witness. Soros invests in gold, but claims it's a bubble. He also made $3.1 billion off of the subprime mortgage crisis, after he made even more billions in 1992 by nearly bankrupting the Bank of England. The Soros invitation is just a courtesy, so they don't look too biased.
Weiner and Waxman would be better served investigating all of the George Soros funded liberal organizations, like the criminal front group Media Matters for America. To be fare, beyond the illegal tax code violations, the hearing would only uncover that the organization is operated by a bunch of sexually-confused liberals.
