06/12/2010 Freedom Watch w/ Ron Paul, Sarah Palin, Rand Paul, Jim DeMint, more

So far it appears Fox has not posted today’s television debut on their site. However, it has appeared on youtube. Therefore, you can check it out below. Once Fox posts it (if they do) then we’ll link to that version. It’s always better to give the Fox site the hits so they can more easily determine the reach of the show. But for now…

    Freedom Watch was an awesome show. This first one on tv was pathetic. Should be called "Tea Party is Valid, and Unified Watch".

    Hopefully Napolitano returns to discussing relevant, honest, libertarian ideals. Politicians love to find parades they can jump out in front of. I never thought I'd see Napolitano assist statists like Palin in doing so.

    If Freedom Watch is going to continue being this kind of farce, I hope it returns to an internet only show asap.

    [...] Tea Party Summit: Paul/Palin on Freedom Watch Judge Andrew Napolitano on the debut of Freedom Watch on the Fox Business Network discusses the similarities/differences between the social conservatives (Palin) and the constitutional libertarians (Paul) within the Tea Party/Freedom Movement. Can they be unified? watch here: [...]

    This was the first time I actually took what Palin had to say seriously and gave her words any serious consideration… the funny thing is, I suspect there are other people out who are fans of Palin and right now there saying the same thing about Ron Paul, "I've heard him speak before, but this was the first time I liked what he had to say… etc") That is what is called "social proof" and it works both ways. There needs to be a lot more of that if we want the Tea Party people to share our libertarian values and ideals.

    After reading your post I now realize that is what the Judge and Ron Paul are hoping for and why thy like having Palin go rogue and support Dr. Paul in KY. Getting him into the Senate is a big deal and I will listen to Palin everyday if that is what it takes to see Paul win that seat.

    I think some posters here don't get it. This is the premier episode of a new show. You want big names. Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Rand Paul, Ron Paul and Jim DeMint are all very popular. It makes sense to have them on the first show so as to attract an audience.

    I'm CERTAIN that Schiff etc. will be on the show in coming episodes. You guys are worrying over nothing.

    Glad to see Fox realize the intelligence of the judge. His own show was overdue. Between him,Beck, O'Reilly and Hannity we now have an unlimited source of inteligent and up to date information about what this Obama government is trying to pull. Between him and the uber left, they've already set us on a path to Socialism..

    Judge Napolitano and Freedom Watch are both "winners". The shows moves quickly and packs more worthwhile content into an hour than any other I have seen. The lineup for the first show was knowledgeable, well informed, and pertinent. Pay no attention to the negative comments and pundits. Keep up the good work. America needs it more now than ever!! The direction of this country must change.

    Great show! Obama was a junior senator in 2008. Looks like Rand will be similarly situated in 2012. A good choice in 2012 for liberty and freedom would be the father/son team of Pauls. A big plus when they win is that the financial elites that have been running this country into the ground will all have massive coronaries and strokes.

    June 13, 2010 @ 10:35 pm

    You maybe right that they wanted a bunch of names to attract viewers, but the reason Napolitano's internet show was so great, and worthy of a tv show, is because it was unique in that they were actually libertarians talking about real substance, & relevant issues. Choosing to have names, and irrelevant banter that does nothing to distinguish what could have been the lone valuable show on tv, is a huge mistake. I told countless people to turn in, who rightly turned it off after 15 minutes, realizing it's just more of the same. I told people that this would be different, because Napolitano is no shill. Today I've apologized to a lot of people.

    The people who share the agenda of FOX are trying to establish a credible "leader" of the Tea Party protests, to start an official "Tea Party" organization, and then make it another worthless organization with no purpose other than to distract people from the option of liberty, and maintain the monopoly on politics with the statists who already control it. The fact that Napolitano would dance like this is disgusting, and utterly disappointing. Perhaps I was naive to think he was different. I won't make that mistake again.

    Congratulations Judge ,what a great show and the guests (awesome and balanced) and the questions flying out of your brilliant hat. I liked the way you got Gov. Ed Randell to give respect to Gov. Sarah Palin. I supported the Democratic party in 2008 and I now am an Independent as I have been scrutinizing Obama's Presidnency and I am not happy in the direction it is going, so I opened my heart and mind to listen to the other side and how amazed I was at people like Newt Gingrich and Karl Rove and these were people I did not like just because I was a staunch Democrat; but no more the intelligence and the brilliance of the leaders on the Republican side is amazing and how I love Bobby Jindale. I would love to see this young tough Gov. run. I love how woman in the Republican party are winning and being heard. Your debut show was great and the brilliance of Gov. Sarah Palin should not be underestimated. I will say there are a lot of good candidates for 2012 such as Tim Pawlenty and Bobby Jindale of La and what he is dealing with in the oil crises but there are great woman arising like Congresswoman Michele Bacman of Texas and of coarse the very formidable Gov. Sarah Palin and I would love her to run in 2012 and see the first woman President of the U.S.A. in my lifetime but not for just that reason I think she is smart and talented and is able to take a good punch from the left . This woman is here to stay. Great Show Judge. I loved it and it was refreshing. sincerely Mary from upstate N.Y. (former Obama supporter now Independent leaning Republican)

    Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty…
    Those who can see clearly are renewing their minds, their words, their relationships and their homes, with Truth.
    They are listening to each other now, and joining hands as they begin to march together.
    Where is the music now which will inspire us to persevere – to rescue and restore our nation? I believe we heard the first chorus when a former marine stood up recently at a Tea Party meeting and sang:
    Oh! Thus be it ever when free men shall stand
    between their loved homes and the war's desolation.
    Blessed with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
    praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just.
    And this be our motto, in God is our trust.
    And the Star Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
    O'er the Land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave!

    "Disgusting" best describes my feelings as well. I'll watch another show or two to see if the Judge snaps out of his current delerium. If not, I'll have to write him off as another traitor to the values he once espoused so eloquently.

    Notice too that she never once condemned Bush or the Republicans in Congress for their part in the mess we're in. It was always "Obama" and the "Democrats". Partisan crap like this is a sure sign that Palin is either unaware of the true causes for our problems or doesn't care about them.

    2. No Bailouts/Stimulus – Let the markets rule.
    3. End Illegal Immigration – The Mexican border must be sealed end to end.
    4. Term limits for Congress – 4 terms for Reps, 2 terms for Senators

    Congratulations on the show Judge ! I have been a regular viewer of the internet show and thought it was the most intelligent thing Fox had ever produced (I find Beck , though he has some good points, to be too much of a bible thumping nutbar ).
    I would just caution you to try and keep the content intelligent , you are the brightest mind on Fox news, but having idiots like Palin on the show brings the whole discussion level down, to call her an intellectual lightweight would be a compliment.
    Keep it libertarian, pro-freedom, pro-constitution and I will keep watching, just don't let it get hijacked by the Republicans (95 % of which are big govt., anti-freedom hypocrites).

    Ron Paul is great and the real deal. He is not the only person leading a movement in this country. It's a great idea to get libertarians and conservative republicans to converse. Where do you think many libertarians come from? Most that I know are former "conservative republicans". Nobody alive today was first to the American movement. Territorial chest pounding is exactly what we've been seeing from the two major parties.

    Replying to ForLiberty & Doug. Get your head out of the sand. The Judge is no shill. And its not more of the same. How many hosts try and question statists using Libertarian subjects of great value like where they stand on the war. The Judge needs to call them out when they give bad answers like Bachman and Palin, but he is new to cross examining those on the statist side.

    Also, we don't want a libertarian echo chamber or an intellectual ghetto with a libertarian flavor like the progressive intellectual ghetto chamber of Olberman and Rachel Madow; or the quasi libertarian/neo-con ineffectual ghetto of Glen Beck; all of which have no opposing views. Or three liberals and one neo-con like CNN or three neo-cons and 1 weak liberal like all of the Fox shows, with maybe the exception of John Stossel and hopefully Freedom Watch.

    For a show to be sucessful and not an intelectual ghetto chamber of kiss ass men you need opposing views. Its just this time the host and many of the guests who are libertarian will get a voice. So get your head out of the intellectual ghetto.

  56. liberty activist Said,

    June 15, 2010 @ 2:47 pm

    ForLiberty. you are an idot. The Judge has integrity as well. I guess if you set up an intellectual ghetto chamber with only your views then that is the only way you have integrity. You can't see that we have a libertarian host who can invite the statists on and expose their satism through asking them questions on their statiem through a libertarian viewpoint.

    I missed the debut but am so excited to see Ron Paul's ideas taking off. His campaign is what got me interested in politics, prior to that I just considered them all crooks. There's real hope with this type of thinking. Like giving social issues to the states. There is no way these can be passed and agreed on at the federal leval. Doing it state-by-state makes way more sense. If I don't like the way my state goes, I can EASILY move. We will never come to a consensus in the country — the sides are just too opposed. State by state would work.

You and all of your guests are exceptional people. I'm looking forward to this weeks show with another of my favorite people & author, Glenn Beck. As for my dream ticket…I think Gen. David Petraeus would be the best choice for this time. He is a proven leader, honorable, decisive and commands respect. He has dedicated his life to fighting for our country, freedom, way of life and constitution. I wish I did know more about him. 2nd on the ticket, I like Congressman Paul Ryan.

  69. Walt Said,

    Yeah, I feel exactly the same. She basically never has constructive things to say, only negative things to say.. and those negative things always have "Obama" attached to them. Even though Obama is only the latest of many presidents to follow this path.

  70. Walt Said,

    June 20, 2010 @ 5:59 am

    He was absolutely asking very leading questions and basically feeding Palin questions that she would like to answer. And it really just seemed like he was giving her another platform to get up and bash Obama, while Ron Paul takes a much more even approach of discussing fundamental problems with America which apply to both political parties.

    The whole Tea Party started out as a reaction to how the Republican party has strayed from where it should be, and Sarah Palin claims to be representing the Tea Party but she basically only bashes Democrats. I'm not saying Democrats are doing things well, just that she is a Republican shill who claims to be a representative of the Tea Party. The Judge should be calling her out on this.

  71. Walt Said,

    June 20, 2010 @ 6:02 am

    That sounds like a bad idea. The vice president is not extremely powerful, and there are few enough people in Congress with real integrity. We can't afford to lose even one of them to become vice president. I honestly don't know enough about Rand yet, but I really don't think we could afford to lose Ron Paul to that position.

    Then why does he let her talk the way she does? He should call her out on her bullshit. Seriously, she pretends to be representing the Tea Party but she has never demonstrated any real values that she professes to believe in.

Then 2012 can't get here soon enough for this 70 year old Constitutional Conservative. The idea that a 20% minority is running this country for the moment makes me sick. I did not raise my kids or 11 grand kids for to live in such a world as the Dictator Obama has in mind. And make no bones about it, he wants to be a dictator. He doesn't want anyone to answer to. He just wants to keep on with the talk, talk, talk – speech, speech, speech, but without really ever saying anything of substance. No thank you I don't want that non-American in my life any more. Obama is truly a pathetic puddle of puke. We must get him and his minions out of office without further talk. I really believe that the judge is on the right track to make it happen. The judge understands what the SOB Obama is doing to this beautiful country. Thank you judge and keep up counting Obama out!

    EXACTLY! That is NOT Constitutional. Bull. I am sick of this woman! Her, and all lthe rest of the phonies in politics! They are trying to make a career off the backs of the people! Paul loves his country more than he loves himself, and that is what we have seen for the past 40 years within him!

    Beck was for all the wars and bailouts, not to mention the patriot act. It doesn't get any more statist than that. Just because he occasionally uses the words of libertarians (badly at that), doesn't make him a libertarian. He also seems to be racist and quite insane. He is poison and will only help to discredit the entire movement.

    I think this write up was secretly a great beginning to a potential series of articles about this topic. So many people act like they know what they’re preaching about when it comes to this area and in reality, nearly no one actually get it. You seem to grasp it however, so I think you ought to take it and run. Thanks!
