    Excellent, excellent, excellent show! Everything you wanted to know about the economy but were afraid to ask! Great work and great questions Judge! The guests (Lew Rockwell, Peter Schiff, Ron Paul) were the perfect people to ask these questions.

    This is exactly what we all need to know and hear. It's been talked about on today's show (with Lew Rockwell) why people don't understand or seem to be causing a groundswell of resistance to all of what's happening in our government and with our economy. The answer is ignorance. You just struck gold by asking very basic, sequential, and substantial questions about what is happening. What happens after that? What happens after that? PERFECT! You have to treat us (people in general) like we know next to nothing about these subjects and not be afraid to ask questions that might seem to have obvious answers. I GUARANTEE you, more often than not, the answers are not obvious to most listeners. Thank you very much. you hit the ball out of the park! Best FreedomWatch show yet!

    Somebody get this on TV and while you're at it make it longer (same amount of time but to accommodate commercials). This may be the only television show on that actually MATTERS!

    When did the rLOVEution get its own tv show? I've been apathetic ever since the Ron Paul campaign died down but damn this show is motivating me back again. I am still shocked about having Ron Paul, Peter Shiff, and Austrians economist on a Fox show yet I am so hype that I need to watch all the previous episodes asap. I've been missing out!!!

    Great show. Keep up the good work! I think Neal Boortz would make guest.

    Great show! You need to iron out the kinks though. There seem to be a lot of technical glitches on every show, mainly with people not being mic'd properly. Hopefully those will be ironed out before you guys go on TV. A show this thoughtful and interesting is the kind of thing I never expected to see anywhere near television. This is a more interesting show than anything else on Fox News.

    This is the best broadcast hour on the planet! Real issues, real world, no media matrix to it!

    Jeff Snyder wrote (http://www.americanhandgunner.com/GunRght1.html) "The truth, therefore, and the reality, is that men are ruled only because they voluntarily submit; they willingly put on the yoke and cooperate with their servitude. This is true no matter what the form of government."

    Why are we not hearing from the third arm of our government, the Judicial Branch? If what the Congress and the Treasury is doing is unconstitutional what is stopping the members of the Supreme Court from marching over to the House and ordering them to stop?

    I wish they had a Q&A session. Or at least an email to send questions. I have a ton to ask !

    This is the best show on Fox News. I am a libertarian, and champion of Austrian Economics, and this show is the only show that is consistent with my views.

    Please have Lew Rockwell on every show!

    Thank God Andrew Napalitano has common sense.

    Great Show. This is a program I will be tuning into every week. I am very encouraged to hear these view expressed by fox news commentators, and to see people like Lew Rockwell getting a larger stage.

    You people who think inflation is coming are really drinking the kool aid, as they say these days. It could come, if your assumption that the money is simply being "spent into circulation". It isn't. You need to inform yourselves about "concentration of wealth". In short, this greed phenomenon shows that 1% of the wealthiest families own well in excess of 50% of the wealth in the US, while the poorest 50% of the country owns far less than 1% of the wealth. You think all those billionaires out there are going to spend all their money into circulation down in the poor part of town? The wealthy in this country have made an art form out of screwing the little guy for as long as we've had a Constitution. That's why guys like Bill Gates have more money than Africa's GDP. And he's a piker compared to the invisible empire call the Rothschild Banking Dynasty.

    Peter Schiff might as well be talking out his backside for all he knows about what is really going on. These banker bailouts are the equivalent of the banks robbing everyone blind and then going to the government and saying "We'd like an amount equal to the amount we stole from everyone." And they are a bunch of criminal scumbags who should be doing time in maximum security federal penitentiaries.

    We're all being robbed and all these so-called conservatives are blowing their horns as they bleat for the elite.

    The only thing coming down the pipe is higher prices and more and more poverty for larger and larger segments of society. Meanwhile, the rich will keep on getting richer as they inflate their bank accounts, assets, and holdings to astronomical levels.

    Inflation my foot. These bailouts aren't going to the people, where they're needed, they're going to the richest robber baron a$$holes in America.

    Please do not have Glenn Beck on as a "libertarian". As a pure libertarian, he is a stain on the Constitution. Almost every show he has to go into his personal problems of "ADHD, uneducated rodeo clown, alcoholic". He is libertarian until it suits his personal agenda, then let gov't intervene. It was good that CNN, got rid of him – NOW Freedom Watch? Listen to Glenn's own words: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qS5wK_QvzH4” target=”_blank”>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qS5wK_QvzH4 Hate 9/11 families? Is he out of his mind? Out with FEMA camps, then has an exerpt of non existence from Popular Mechanics. When does a magazine that covers scientific cars has the clout to deal with this issue? Get a more crediblesource. But, he will have a show on April 6 to debunk it as he announced. Infowars.com is having a show that is devoted two hours straight on it showing gov't documents this coming Tuesday from 11a-3p cst. Glenn, according to the NY Times, is getting paid $10 million dollars a year for non-coherent jibberish? Freedom Watch, get serious, don't infect your good programming by an over paid falsely labeled libertarian as Glenn Beck. More of Ron Paul, which is more refreshing.

    James,
    Your beginning question and premise is answered in the last part of your commentary. Refinancing, various loans, and the rich do not stop spending. All business subsized by the gov't get the benefits of the fresh then it filters down via employees and subcontractors and suppliers. Thus causing velocity of money to cause inflation. We are in a deflationary depression by basic economic terms and the gov't will spend to cause inflation pressure upwards.

    The almost $10 trillion already spent via backdoors have been benefiting the super rich and banking interests throughout the world via OTC derivatives. Think of it, in the market when there is a loser, there is a winner – no black hole. Trillionaries are being made now on the working class' backs. Google: The Obama Deception. There is no left or right, just bankster/gangster/wall street vs. the People. If the now rich don't invest in inflation protected assets, they also will become victims as the poor. Capitalism and the Republic are dead. Fascism is in full swing with Obama calling for Wagnor's resignation – not that I don't disagree with his parting. But, it is Fascism at it's worst. Welcome to the USSA – Amerika!

    On the second segment, there is mention of proposals for new government power to reach into the books of private corporations. Is there any chance this proposal might be written broadly enough to allow investigation of the Federal Reserve? Or would the Fed be exempted? Would we expect that the government deem it a threat to national economic security to allow such an investigation anyway?

    James, Peter Schiff opposes the bailouts, as do I, and all of the regulars on this show. I absolutely agree that it's theft. We're not "conservative" as in the sense of Bush or McCain, I think Bush was one of the worst presidents in memory. I also oppose his foreign policy.

    The "higher prices" you speak of are the exact result of the inflation Peter's talking about — he's on your side.

    I, and the regulars on this show, support liberty. That's very different from the corpratism we have today, and very different from almost all republcians. It means you stop getting your money stolen from you by bankers and the government (really the same thing these days), it means no preemptive war, and it means you're free to live your personal life as you choose, as long as you don't harm others.

    It means you get your constiutional rights back.

    It's not about left vs right. It's about freedom vs tyranny.

    I hope they don't have Glenn Beck on Freedom Watch anymore. He's part of the NWO and he waters down the show.

    Totally agreement. He has Entertainment Weekly (that was his previous job), I mean Popular Mechanics on to debunk FEMA camps. Glenn Beck is a con-artist of the truth and uses a strawman. Just google, find the gov'ts own papers. He is a crappy entertainer, researcher and journalist at best and doesn't deserve air time on this quality content show. Alex Jones tore Beck's and PM apart with official gov't documents you can find yourself and forwarded them before they went on air about FEMA camps. Looks like they really don't care about truth just ratings, money, and steering the public away from the real truth. That is a Confidence Man, give enough truth to get you suckered. Glenn stick to your rodeo clown and your AA meetings you constantly talk about. We all have our problems, but stick to the facts IF you WANT to really be a PATRIOT.
