Gasparino: Jack Welch Warned Me About Doing Market Moving Stories, “You Are Going to Get Your Brains Blown Out”
It doesn’t get much clearer than this, for those of you who don’t think corporate execs don’t influence reporting at mainstream media.
In an interview on benzinga.com, Charlie Gasparino, who used to work at CNBC, said that Jack Welch, who was Chairman of GE when they owned 100% of CNBC, told him not to do market moving stories Gasaprino said:
Jack Welch told me you do not want to do that. You really don’t want to move the markets like that because one of these days you are going to get your brains blown out. And I took that to heart.
It seems that Gasparino takes the message from Welch to somehow just mean it’s a very dangerous thing to do and doesn’t catch the nuance that Welch is attempting to muffle him. But what the hell is a corporate exec, one of the most powerful corporate execs in the world, doing telling a reporter not to break market moving stories?

Almost Everything Is A Crime In America Now: 14 Of The Most Ridiculous Things That Americans Are Being Arrested For
The Economic Collapse
December 28, 2010
|Either we have a massive crime problem or the “control grid” that our leaders have erected for us is wildly out of control.|
Doesn’t it seem like almost everything is becoming a crime in America now? Americans are being arrested and charged with crimes for doing things like leaving dog poop on the ground, opening up Christmas presents early, not recycling properly, farting in class and having brown lawns. But is it healthy for our society for the police to be involved in such silly things? Every single day the United States inches closer to becoming a totalitarian society. While there are some that would welcome this shift, the truth is that throughout history the societies that have experienced the greatest economic prosperity have all had at least a certain level of freedom. Business thrives when people feel free to live and work. When a government tightens the grip too much many people just start shutting down. Just look at places like North Korea. Even though the rest of the world is sending them huge amounts of food starvation is still quite common in that totalitarian regime. That is why it is so disturbing that it seems like almost everything has become a crime in America now. As we continue to criminalize relatively normal behavior our slide toward becoming a totalitarian state will only accelerate.
We are throwing anyone and everyone in prison these days. It is getting absolutely ridiculous. Today, the United States leads the world in the number of prisoners and in the percentage of the population in prison. The United States has 5% of the world’s population, but approximately 25% of the world’s incarcerated population.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, as of the end of 2009 a total of 7,225,800 people were either on probation, in prison or on parole in America.
That is a sign of a very, very sick society. Either we have a massive crime problem or the “control grid” that our leaders have erected for us is wildly out of control.
But how in the world are we supposed to have a healthy economy if our entire nation is being turned into one gigantic prison?
Sadly, it is not just hardcore criminals that are being rounded up and abused by authorities these days. The following are 14 of the most ridiculous things that Americans are being arrested for….
#1 A Michigan man has been charged with a felony and could face up to 5 years in prison for reading his wife’s email.
#2 A 49-year-old Queens woman had bruises all over her body after she was handcuffed, arrested and brutally beaten by NYPD officers. So what was her offense? The officers thought that her little dog had left some poop that she didn’t clean up.
#3 A 56-year-old woman who was once a rape victim refused to let airport security officials feel her breasts so she was thrown to the floor, put in handcuffs and arrested.
#4 In Milwaukee, one man was recently fined $500 for swearing on a public bus.
#5 Several years ago a 12-year-old boy in South Carolina was actually arrested by police for opening up a Christmas present early against his family’s wishes.
#6 In some areas of the country, it is now a crime to not recycle properly. For example, the city of Cleveland has announced plans to sort through trash cans to ensure that people are actually recycling according to city guidelines.
#7 A 12-year-old girl from Queens was arrested earlier this year and taken out of her school in handcuffs for writing “Lex was here. 2/1/10″ and “I love my friends Abby and Faith” on her desk.
#8 Back in 2008, a 13-year-old boy in Florida was actually arrested by police for farting in class.
#9 The feds recently raided an Amish farmer at 5 AM in the morning because they claimed that he was was engaged in the interstate sale of raw milk in violation of federal law.
#10 A few years ago a 10-year-old girl was arrested and charged with a felony for bringing a small steak knife to school. It turns out that all she wanted to do was to cut up her lunch so that she could eat it.
#11 On June 18th, two Christians decided that they would peacefully pass out copies of the gospel of John on a public sidewalk outside a public Islamic festival in Dearborn, Michigan and within three minutes 8 policemen surrounded them and placed them under arrest.
#12 A U.S. District Court judge slapped a 5oo dollar fine on Massachusetts fisherman Robert J. Eldridge for untangling a giant whale from his nets and setting it free. So what was his crime? Well, according to the court, Eldridge was supposed to call state authorities and wait for them do it.
#13 Once upon a time, a food fight in the cafeteria may have gotten you a detention. Now it may get you locked up. About a year ago, 25 students between the ages of 11 and 15 at a school in Chicago were taken into custody by police for being involved in a huge food fight in the school cafeteria.
#14 A few years ago a 70 year old grandmother was actually put in handcuffs and hauled off to jail for having a brown lawn.
Why in the world would anyone approve of the police arresting ordinary Americans for such things?
It seems like ever since 9/11 the whole country has gotten “security fever”.
Suddenly we need to “get tough” on everyone.
Yes, crime is making a comeback, but once upon a time the police in this country were able to handle crime quite well and be courteous and helpful to ordinary citizens at the same time.
But today it seems like nearly every single encounter with police ends up being negative.
It does not have to be that way.
The rest of the world sees what is going on in this country and many of them are deciding that they simply do not want to spend their tourist dollars here anymore. That is not a good thing for our economy.
As the government continues to get even bigger and exerts even more control over our lives, many of our own people are getting sick of it and are moving abroad.
America used to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
That is no longer true.
Now we get thrown to the floor, handcuffed, beaten and arrested for things that we did not even know were crimes.
If America continues to move in this direction it is going to ruin our economy, our reputation in the world and our national spirit.
Unfortunately, history has shown us that once a free nation starts to lose that freedom it is hard to reverse that slide. Perhaps we will be different. Perhaps the American people will stand up and demand that we restore the principles of liberty and freedom that this country was founded on.

Civilized sexual behavior is based on upholding marriage and motherhood. Only then are promiscuity prevented and females valued for their character and ability. Now they’re like cheap whores holding numbers in a Bangkok brothel.”
“We must introduce into their education all those principles which have so brilliantly broken up their order.” Protocols of Zion, 16
by Henry Makow, Ph.D.
(From August 11, Revised Dec. 26)
While the feminist mothers saw power as financial independence and rejected female “objectification,” their daughters accept the pornographic message of pop music and advertising. In the words of one mom, they “believe their purpose in life is to be sexual beings who please men.”
“A blow job is like shaking hands,” said another mom. “Their attitude is: ‘We’re emancipated, we’re liberated, we’re in control. They see [it] as power; I see it as giving their power away.”
Indeed it is. But: Who taught they could have sex outside of courtship, love and marriage? Who tarred the roles of wife and mother? Who tore down men i.e.”the patriarchy” ?
Feminists did. An essentially lesbian disorder, feminism brainwashed young women to see husbands as oppressors and family as bondage. There was no longer any reason to restrict sex to love and marriage.
“Women’s rights” indeed! Feminism is Communist in origin. Communists view women as a public utility. It is classic divide-and-conquer, satanic subterfuge which now extends far beyond gender.
Civilized sexual behavior is based on upholding marriage and motherhood. Only then are promiscuity prevented and females valued for their character and ability. Now they’re like cheap whores holding numbers in a Bangkok brothel.
Understandably, feminists won’t admit they’ve been cynically betrayed by their teachers and political leaders. Feminism was created by elite social engineers to reduce population and undermine marriage and family.
FEMINISTS IN DENIAL
Even while wringing their hands, feminists are blinded by their ideology. (The article veers off into a discussion of how feminism is still relevant.)
The words “love,” “marriage,” “husband” and “family” do not appear in the article. No wonder they can’t understand the problem and what to do about it.
In the past, men had to commit before they could have sex. As a result, women were cherished for themselves and given a lifelong role that satisfied their deepest emotional needs.
Both mothers and daughters are victims of deliberate social subversion. A woman’s career used to be wife and mother. She consecrated her sexuality for the man she loved, the father of her children, her protector and provider.
Young women today are up a creek. They are going to be left high and dry. Even if they land a man, they’ve lost the ability to love him.
Marriage and motherhood is a woman’s biological and social destiny. It ensures she is needed, loved and secure long after her sex appeal has faded. It’s mind blowing that young women are so heedless of their own self-interest.
Young women obsess on beauty but true beauty comes from within, from a spiritual purity. This means rejecting all coarse influences and behavior. It means focusing on the qualities that make for a good person, wife and mother.
“I don’t meet many girls who feel good about themselves, even though they are totally gorgeous,” one social worker says.
How could they … giving their bodies to strangers who dump them?
Girls figure they have to or boys will get it from other girls. That’s like saying, “if I don’t let muggers beat me, other girls will.”
Apparently the saying is true: “Woman’s virtue is man’s greatest invention.”
“Father” is another word totally absent from the article. Girls could get love, self respect and guidance from their fathers. But their feminist mothers probably drove their fathers away.
It’s not too late for girls to become women again. There can be no sex without courtship and love. If other girls give it away, let them suffer the consequences.
Girls can become feminine again by making marriage and family their first priority. If they refocus on being attractive to the right man, they can regain the path to fulfillment and happiness.
