Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 22, 2019

One of President Donald Trump's picks to serve on the Federal Reserve Board has written that women should be banned from refereeing, announcing or beer vending at men's college basketball games, asking if there was any area in life "where men can take vacation from women." ... In one of his 2002 columns, Moore suggested changes to March Madness tournament to get rid of "un-American" aspects of it. The first rule proposed by Moore was "no women." "Here's the rule change I propose: No more women refs, no women announcers, no women beer venders, no women anything," he wrote in March 2002. "There is, of course, an exception to this rule. Women are permitted to participate, if and only if, they look like Bonnie Bernstein. The fact that Bonnie knows nothing about basketball is entirely irrelevant."

Pres Trump's only concern in his appointees appears to be whether or not the candidate is will be loyal to Pres Trump.

Not the Constitution and People of the United States, but Pres Trump.

What does his philosophy on fed policy look like? I know, none of that money stuff matters when it comes to a Fed banker. So I guess lets break down his opinion on women referees?

He'll remove miss George Washington, a obviously dignified woman of her time from the dollar for his dear Bonnie dressed only in a hat and tie.

Who cares? There are plenty of very well qualified candidates who are not ------- troglodytes. Why can't we pick from that group?

"What does his philosophy on fed policy look like? "

He's famously the author of the WSJ piece "Tax Cuts Increase Revenue", cited by Cheney on multiple occasions. In it, he uses nominal dollars, instead of dollars adjusted for inflation, a method that will get you flunked out of an Econ 101 midterm.

His central theme was: if Clinton's last tax code collected $1 Trillion, and Dubya's new codes collected $1 Trillion and one cent, that PROVED tax cuts increase revenue...all knowledge of real dollars or increasing populations be damned.

Interesting opinion piece around this topic...

Trump is leading a global attack against central banks. It could end in disaster.
www.washingtonpost.com

...Around the democratic world, there is a power struggle taking place that might end up being the most damaging and long-lasting consequence of this era of populism. Elected leaders -- from President Trump to Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan to India's Narendra Modi -- have been steadily attacking the independence of their nations' central banks. This could end very badly.

A brief history of modern central banking. As the Economist points out, politicians in the 1970s would routinely use central banks to goose the economy before elections to help them win. This helped create a wave of inflation that paralyzed economies and caused untold misery. The middle class saw its hard-earned savings evaporate within a few years.

As a result, over the past three decades, countries around the world have given central banks much greater independence. The United States was one of the leaders in this regard, with Paul Volcker asserting the Federal Reserve's independence and breaking the back of the "stagflation" that had crippled the U.S. economy during the 1970s.

Today, it is Trump who is leading the charge in the opposite direction. He is attacking the Federal Reserve and asking it not only to cut rates but also to actually engage in emergency measures to boost the economy -- at a time of robust growth and low unemployment. To ensure the Fed complies with his wishes, he plans to nominate two candidates to its board whose main qualification appears to be a slavish devotion to the president.

But Trump is not alone....

@#2 ... What does his philosophy on fed policy look like? ...

I saw Mr Moore on BloombergTV for an interview a couple weeks back.

Trump Nominee Stephen Moore Says He'll Challenge Fed's ‘Growth Phobiacs'
www.bloomberg.com

...Stephen Moore, a proposed nominee for the Federal Reserve, said he's planning to challenge the belief inside the U.S. central bank that growth causes inflation and will try to demystify monetary policy so it's not conducted within a "temple of secrecy."

"I'm going to come with the idea -- challenge one fundamental idea that I think is endemic at the Fed, which I think is completely wrong, which is that growth causes inflation. Growth does not cause inflation," he said in an interview on Bloomberg Television on Thursday....

I would say Moore has issues stemming from his relationship with his mommy. Moore, like Trump, is a misogynist.

Wealthy white Americans turn to their children often when there's no affection forthcoming from the spouse. Mommy gives Junior a rub and tug and Junior falls in love with mommy. This is where Junior begins to hate daddy. Why? Because mommy has to spread her legs for daddy, even if she doesn't want to and she tells Junior how much she hates it. Suddenly, as Junior matures, mommy tells him it has to stop and it's over. His heart is broken and starts to act up. Daddy sends Junior to military school and mommy allows it. Mommy has no choice but to comply because if daddy finds out, she looses her meal ticket. In the meantime, Junior takes out his anger with his mommy at all the women that crosses his path.

It's a another tragic white American problem.

Boo.

Hoo.

For the record I'm all in favor of well-endowed blonde women selling beer. Aside from that maybe it'd be best if they stuck to commenting on womens' sports. Why is it that women and their white-knight beta sycophants feel the need to invade any and all male spaces? I don't even care about muh sportsballs but come on.

Ok, so the answer is no you didn't grow out of the girls are icky phase.

You might succeed in losing your virginity if you showered once in a while, brushed your teeth and have your pony develop a second trick.

Isn't this the same guy who went on Bill Maher's show and said he thought insider trading should be legal? If so, that seems a lot more relevant than the topic of this thread.

Sports isn't an all-male space. Women have always watched sports, talked about sports and played sports.

Any man who needs sports to be a safe space for men shouldn't be calling anybody else a "beta."

I'm sorry the ham sandwich you ordered had ham in it, sir. That's not sufficient reason to get a refund.

He's a Trump supporter.

Normalizing poor behavior towards women is a worthwhile goal in his world.

Wait, you're serving ham sandwiches here? I want one!

In all seriousness, it sounds like this guy was being a provocative ass for the sake of it, and the quotes come across as poorly written satire / trolling which really don't deserve the attention and knee jerk responses they're trying to invoke.

How is this really relevant, when it's already obvious the guy is completely unqualified: www.vanityfair.com

Or to put it another way, do you really think there's anyone out there who isn't already against this guy who would be swayed by the stupid stuff he wrote about college basketball? I don't, and I think focusing on this is just "noise" which could potentially distract from the real problems with this candidate.

Everything is relevant with a Federal Reserve Board nominee.
