Episode #15 Reynolds Reveal
Episode #14 Reynolds Reveal - Episode #14 Reynolds Reveal – Special Guest: Historian Hunt Tooley. Reynolds discussed mortgage foreclosures in Arkansas occurring alongside rising home prices; NYT columnist Paul Krugman’s claims that there is no bubble in either bond or common stock prices and that Ben Bernanke should just continue doing ‘his job’ (printing $!); and the rise of ‘emerging market’ investors and companies acquiring majority stakes in famous Western brand names and companies. Professor Hunt Tooley of Austin College in north Texas analyzed World War I during our interview in accord with his 2003 book, ‘The Western Front.’ Most of us know too little about these 4+ years of catastrophic slaughters which catapulted us into communism, Nazism, Fascism and the lesser forms of liberty-extinguishing welfare/warfare governments of the 20th century, eclipsing the individualism, private property, free markets, relative peace and hard money that mostly prevailed in the century prior to WWI.
Episode #13 Reynolds Reveal – Special Guest: Robert Morrow. Reynolds discussed the phony airplane parts allegedly discovered three blocks north of the World Trade Center nearly 12 years after 9/11; and the myth-busting video “Unstoppable Solar Cycles,” which shows that earth’s climate has not been constant but has alternated between cold and warm eras due to solar changehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cl4Pz1mwBao. Warming occurs first due to solar changes and carbon dioxide subsequently rises because vegetation increases and the oceans warm, thereby releasing CO2. Guest Robert Morrow of Austin Texas exposed the evidence, heavily documented by insiders who went public, that the Bush family, notably likely future presidential candidate Jeb Bush, and the Clintons were up to their eyeballs in the drug trade and murder, including victims like drug runner Barry Seal, head of the Swedish state Olaf Palme and many others because they knew too much and might go public.

Episode #12 Reynolds Reveal – Special guest: Brian Arnett. Reynolds discussed the Arkansas legislature’s legalization of the sale of whole milk (unpasteurized, yeah!), the (bad) authorization of a $125 bond issue for a ‘Big River Steel’ plant, a ‘super project’ of so–called free enterprise of $1.1 billion near Osceola in northeast Arkansas, and touched on climate alarmism. Guest Brian Arnett is Reynolds’ step son and a young entrepreneur/businessman/co-founder of Mountain State Brewing, a start-up craft brewer and restaurant enterprise currently with three sites, two in West Virginia and one in western Maryland. We discussed his background, the ambitions that led him into establishing an independent business, including his love of beer (Arnett emphasized that pursuit of something you love is a prerequisite for your hard work to succeed in business), how he has handled 1,001 business decisions, those who have helped him along the way, the government issues that threaten termination of the business off-and-on, continuing innovation like growing his own hops because of dubious future availability, bottling, and myriad adjustments to new conditions. Obamacare now intrudes between employer and employee and he has begun cutting hours below 30/week for many employees to avoid a $10,000 increase in annual worker cost, which would require higher pizza and beer prices and put him out of business.
Episode #011 Reynolds Reveal - Special guest: Economist George Reisman. Reynolds discussed the large number of foreclosure notices in Arkansas, the alleged tight supply of used homes, the decline in Caterpillar profits, concealed carry applications sharply up, limits on ammo sales and consequent increase in reloading, and the raw deal for raw milk. In recognition of Earth Day on Monday, economist George Reisman of Pepperdine University in Malibu California set the record straight on the shocking beliefs of environmentalists like St. Francis of Assissi, founder of the Sierra Club John Muir, David M. Grabber of the National Park Service, founder of Earth First! David Foreman, and Prince Philip of Great Britain. All value wilderness and all nature for “its own sake,” for its “intrinsic value.” All hope for the right deadly virus to come along to kill billions of people to solve an alleged overpopulation problem and end man’s depredations against earth. Reisman unabashedly judged the Greens worse than the Reds, though both are extreme collectivists who aim to end individual liberty and pursuit of happiness. Their real object is to inflict human misery and death. This is sport for perverse people. Only the exercise of man’s reason can lead to proper adjustments to new circumstances, especially adverse acts of nature. Reisman analyzed the hysteria about exhausting natural resources despite virtually unlimited matter and energy, alleged global warming, and many other fears. Contrary to the evil environmentalists, economic progress is not only possible through freedom and planning at the individual level, coordinated through the price system, but benign.
Episode #10 Reynolds Reveal Reynolds commented on the Boston Marathon bombing, the Pew Research Survey Center report that only 20-25 percent of the American public trusts the federal government, the looming failure of the Obama ‘gun control’ bill, cuts in hours to less than 30 per week and consequent pay cuts caused by Obamacare requiring employers to pay for health care insurance for ‘full-time’ employees defined as 30+ hours/week, the price of gold, and Peter Schiff’s forecast of a looming crash and a Great Depression greater than that in the 1930’s. Guest Gene Epstein of Barron’s Weekly gave listeners an inside look into Barron’s, argued that a real capitalist economy instead of the ‘crapitalism’ we have today—a conjunction of ‘crony’ and ‘capitalism’—could grow at 7 percent annually given the energy and entrepreneurial strength in the U.S., the median return of inflation-adjusted 6.6 percent annually in 140+ years of the stock market that supports his surprising optimism, the non-recovery of small business in the current economy, government’s disastrous intervention in the housing and mortgage markets, the necessary restoration of the profit-and-loss system with special emphasis on loss (no bailouts!) to encourage prudent investing of limited real savings, abolishing the Federal Reserve and Federal Deposit Insurance (even FDR opposed FDIC in 1932!) because taxpayers do not have to protect rich depositers, and finally fiscal reform, especially entitlement reform by affluence-testing receipt of any and all government benefits.
Episode #009 – Reynolds Reveal - Reynolds discussed the industrial accident at Nuclear One near his home in Arkansas; the March employment/unemployment report released the previous Friday; and another Paul Krugman column in the NYT opposing ‘liquidation’ via recession and pushing more and more federal spending and money printing to gin up economic growth. Talk about repeated failure! Guest economist John Cochran of Metropolitan State University in Denver Colorado patiently discussed the many problems of the massive interventions which harm economic expansion. In particular, recent economic statistical studies show government spending consistently impairs economic growth when government’s share of GDP exceeds 18 percent. During the Clinton era federal spending was about 18 percent of GDP but currently is in the range of 23-24 percent. Cochran pointed out that the key problem is not so much deficit spending as total spending far in excess of optimal, although he believes optimal is even lower, probably in the range of ‘tithing,’ or about 10 percent of GDP.
Episode #008 – Reynolds Reveal Reynolds discussed a 6:33 minute Fox News interview with David A. Stockman who predicted the current stock market bubble, inflated by Bernanke counterfeiting, will burst, leading to devastating consequences; applauded popular resistance to police and military drones; clarified the industrial accident that shut down Arkansas Nuclear One power plant owned by Entergy, which posed no reactor or radiation threat; and booed the Arkansas legislature’s move toward funding a $125 million bond to help finance a new ‘private’ mill, Big River Steel, another Arkansas boondoggle. The first guest, Joe Bell of Massachusetts, brought his extensive knowledge of the 9/11 Commission, the FAA players on 9/11, and the Secret Service complicity in 9/11 to the show. The second guest, retired engineer Joe Keith of southern California, characterized the air frames of airliners as “flying egg shells” that could not possibly have burst into steel/concrete towers as shown in 9/11 videos regardless of speed. He continues to offer a $5,000 reward to anyone who can prove a plane crashed into the towers on 9/11. He has had responders but all failed the frame-by-frame video test.
Episode #007 – Reynolds Reveal – Special Guest: Bill Anderson Reynolds described his experience in a concealed carry class, decried Almeda County in California paying its administrator $423,000 for life, cheered student Ryan Rotella of Florida Atlantic University for refusing to write Jesus in large letters and stomp on it when instructed to do so by his classroom instructor, and chided Justin Raimondo for mocking those who find the official account of 9/11 false and impossible at every turn. Reynolds’ guest was economist Bill Anderson of Frostburg State University in western Maryland. Anderson discussed the fallacies of Keynesian analysis, especially at the hands of NYT columnist Paul Krugman, the corrupt U.S. legal system, the disastrous federal drug war, the financial tumult in Cyprus and its portents for Europe and the U.S. down the road.
- Episode #006 – Reynolds Reveal – Andrew Johnson and Richard Hall. Reynolds banged on the costs of the Iraq war on its 10th anniversary, Obama’s visit to Israel and Israeli pressure to make war on Syria and Iran, a raw milk bill in the Arkansas lege and Cal Coolidge’s economy in government (quite in contrast to today’s ideology). Special guests Richard D. Hall (richplanet.net) and Andrew Johnson (checktheevidence.com), both from the U.K., discussed the 7/7 terror event in London in 2005 and the abundant evidence that it was a false flag event similar if smaller scale than 9/11. We also focused on Richard’s breakthrough work 3-D modeling the flight path of the airplane image that went into the South Tower at 9:03 am on 9/11. His surprising conclusion is that all the videos, despite the different aircraft images and apparent differences in paths, were videos capturing the same if somewhat unstable (projected) airplane image speeding along at 583 mph. Caller and 9/11 eyewitness Tommy Trainwreck disputed the analysis.
- Episode #005 – The Reynolds Reveal – Special Guest Retired Pilot John Lear discussed top U.S. arms merchants raking in $billions, the hub bub over the TSA’s impending permission to allow passengers aboard schedule airliners to carry mini knives (less than 2.36” long and 0.5” wide!), and John R. Lott’s lecture Saturday in Little Rock, AR, on likely counterproductive federal gun control measures. Invited guest John Lear, the famous retired pilot, brought his expertise on airplanes to bear on 9/11. He finds that the government’s story about what happened on 9/11 is impossible at virtually every turn, from 5’6” guys possibly taking over Boeing 767 and 757 cockpits, hitting impossible air speeds near sea level, disappearing them into undersized holes without leaving giant tail sections, engines, luggage, bodies and blood behind, and numerous other absurdities sold to the world.
- Reynolds briefly discussed 1) the sequestration farce, 2) the toxic poison fluoride because since 2011 his state of Arkansas has required water systems serving 5,000+ to inject it into their water systems, and 3) the origins of money which is a market phenomenon, not the psyop that it is an invention of the state. Reynolds’ guest was Dr. Mark Thornton Ph.D., senior fellow and economist at the Ludwig von Mises. He discussed key aspects of the U.S. political economy, the continuing recession and worldwide debt crisis. Thornton explained that entirely wrong fiscal and monetary ‘therapies’ have been administered and prevent self-sustaining, healthy economic growth. Sadly, if the government had done nothing in 2008 crisis the recession would have been short and deep and would be in the rear view mirror today. Similar problems due to run-amuck interventionism vex the industrial world. Thornton analyzed the ‘end game’ and how alert individuals can protect themselves.
Episode #003 of The Reynolds Reveal discussed ‘sequestration,’ the impending March 1 modest cuts in federal spending. It included a reply to Paul Krugman’s column pleading for resumption of bigger and ‘better’ spending. Reynolds also criticized that morning’s testimony by the chief counterfeiter—Ben Bernanke—before the Senate Banking Committee. After four years, Bernanke’s trillions in new money still have not stimulated a self-sustaining recover. How come? The first guest was Rob Salt, a native New Yorker, who was working in the North Tower on the morning of 9/11. Salt said the evacuation was orderly but the event was puzzling. He doubts real planes hit the towers and concludes secret technology turned the towers to fine dust that morning. He attributes reports of seeing and hearing planes crash into the twin towers to secret technology, just as a secret energy weapon was used to destroy the towers. A second highly credible 9/11 witness had a contrary view. Tommy Trainwreck, a pit trader, had no doubt he saw and heard a plane go right over his head into the South Tower. It was a twin engine but contrary to the official story seemed smaller than a Boeing 767, something like a DC-3, and also it did not have a dark blue underside like the livery of a United Airlines’ aircraft .
Episode #002 of the Reynolds Reveal. The opener dug into Barack Obama’s racist proposal to boost the minimum wage to $9.00/hour, then addressed overall wage and income disparities and pointed to the necessary sources of long term wage increases: 1) no price inflation, 2) savings and capital formation, and 3) technological advance. Artificial overpricing of labor helps none of these. The heart of the show busted the Abraham Lincoln myth courtesy of the world’s leading scholar on the lyin’ murderin’ rail splitter, Professor Thomas DiLorenzo of Loyola College, Baltimore MD, who wielded his sledge hammer of facts and deep learning to deprogram anyone listening. This just in: today’s statist lies are hardly different from Lincoln’s Lies 150 years ago. The show closed with a dollop of Tommy Trainwreck driving home his experiences trading on Wall Street and the crucial importance of discipline to survive and thrive.
Episode #001 of the Reynolds Reveal discussed who host Morgan Reynolds is; what the Reynolds Reveal will cover in future shows; two big topics will be the political economy and 9/11; conspiracies like JFK assassination, Pearl Harbor, the moon hoax will get attention plus current events; surprise guest Dr. Judy Wood discussed resistance to her book, ‘Where Did The Towers Go?’; Reynolds and Wood discussed their joint effort to research 9/11 in the early years; the new Awakening to 9/11 and the no-confidence economy.
