The Pointer Institute provides remedial education to journalists about history, economics, government, and more. They un-tangle those twelve years of brainwashing that cripples news reporters. The DWC also fights media incompetency and dishonesty and toward that goal it joined with the Pointer Institute and with this blog in 2016 to shut down the Tampa Tribune Newspaper.
We apologize to all the people who did not make the party celebrating the Tribune’s demise. It was a festival of local luminaries.
The goal of both Tampa Bay area newspapers has always been to expand the existing socialist police state. They do so by keeping their readers ignorant. That is another reason why so many local groups and people worked together to put the Tribune out of business. The Tampa Bay Times is not doing well either.
The Tampa Bay Times Newspaper (TBT) covers up the National Socialist German Workers Party and the origin of its dogma, symbols, and rituals. Perhaps that is because the TBT building is adorned with swastikas and a huge U.S. flag put on a pole out front every day.
Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer Prize covering up for socialists at the New York Times (NYT). TBT follows Duranty’s prize-winning strategy. TBT is upset about recent talk of a Pulitzer Prize (that will NOT go to TBT) for exposing socialism and the Pledge of Allegiance as the origin of Nazi salutes and Nazi behavior.
Daniel “LaRouche” Ruth helped kill the Tribune during his time working for the fish wrapper. After LaRouche was fired by the Tampa Tribune, TBT hired him. TBT did so despite his history of Nazi-style name-calling. After LaRouche’s loss in a public debate challenge the local response against the crackpot was so great that LaRouche said he was labeled a “Dork, anti-free market statist, $#%!&, Dummkopf, liberal, daffy, dolt, stupid, dunce and, oh by the way, socialist.” Ruth’s nickname could be “Duranty” (instead of “LaRouche”).
Not long after the “socialist” crack, Ruth’s employer/newspaper said to the kook: “Uh, Daniel Ruth? Start packing your bags!”
On another occasion, Ruth admitted publicly that locals have labeled him “bigot, prejudiced, hateful and ignorant.”
La Ruth jokes about torture. Good Grief, LaRouche was not that delusional!
Ruth supports bleating the socialist Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and said so with his nazi-style name-calling. It is revealing to note that the TBT hoists the flag daily in front of its swastika-decked crib; flag hag LaRouche is not out front daily to bleat his sacred flaggotry. Bleating only takes 12 seconds a day for life, so why not, LaRuth? LaRuth prefers the earlier gesture (he was schooled about it from Dr. Rex Curry’s historical discoveries).
TBT reinforced its masthead, “America’s Dumbest Newspaper,” when it was duped by America’s Dumbest Criminals. Thereafter, America’s Dumbest Newspaper duped its readers (both of them). America’s Dumbest Readers.

DANIEL RUTH & PRICE GOUGING
One of the first "media debate" dares occurred when Dr. Rex Curry publicly issued a challenge to newspaper columnist Daniel Ruth to debate Ruth's column in which Ruth condemned economic freedom (what Ruth calls "price gouging"). http://rexcurry.net/ruth.html The response against Ruth from the general public was so great that Ruth said he was labeled a "Dork, anti-free market statist $#@%!&@, Dummkopf, liberal, daffy, dolt, stupid, dunce and, oh by the way, socialist." In a second column Ruth, humiliated by Curry's debate dare, wouldn’t debate and issued a public apology to Curry regarding Ruth's earlier column. A pic of Rex's debate shirt is at http://rexcurry.net/ruthgouge.jpg
Below is the famous parody/rebuttal of Daniel Ruth's loopy attack against a free market economy.
Daniel Ruth: A Statist, and a journalist, too! http://rexcurry.net/ruthmore.html
If you read newspapers for years then you will see all manner of ditzoid craziness that slops its way over the journalistic gunwales -claims of UFO abductions, the conspiracy theorists, Nazi cabals, and people who believe monkeys are taking over the world.
And those are just some of the serious news stories. There are some newspaper writers, too, who are really weird. Take Daniel Ruth. Please, take him.
For all the black helicopter sightings and strange arguments that Shecky Green and the Jewish lobby control the government and Y2K means the end of the world, Ruth's work is perhaps the most twistedly evasive.
Daniel Ruth - a newspaper columnist - weighed in with one long sputtering bluster against free market economics (what Ruth calls “price gouging” - a term Ruth never defines). Ruth wanted to comment on disaster conditions such as those after Hurricane Andrew devastated the city of Homestead in south Florida.
You have to wonder what schools Ruth went to. Government schools? The government taught him everything it knows and he is still stupid. But that is statist quo.
Ruth is also one of the most visible local disciples of the Tampa Tribune, which ought to have his embarrassed fellow travelers donning Groucho Marx disguises around the office and about town.
Responding to a recent criticism of the filing of more than 500 price-gouging complaints to Florida law enforcement after Hurricane Floyd, Ruth asked a supporter of free market economics the following question:
“If Tampa had been devastated by a hurricane and you had to stand in line for three hours to buy ice for $50-a-bag, or sit in line for four hours to buy gas at $5-a-gallon, I wonder just how devotedly Libertarian you would be.”
Ruth demonstrated by his question his utter lack of comprehension of the issue. Thereafter, Ruth fell into his ruthless mental silence when the free marketeer attempted to show Ruth the stupidity of Ruth's question by asking Ruth: “If Tampa had been devastated by a hurricane and you had to stand in line for 6 hours (instead of 3) to buy ice for its government imposed price, or sit in line for 8 hours (instead of 4) to buy gas at its government controlled price, or if you actually had to go without the above, and building materials, bread, etc, because there wasn't any to buy at government imposed prices, I wonder just how devotedly socialistic/statist (or however you describe yourself) you would be.”
By the way, Ruth also seems to believe that people who hoard goods in advance of a disaster should be arrested. Why? It's just too ... too ... loopy. Reached by phone, Loopy Ruth did his mental blank out when asked whether his support of arresting price gougers also translated into his support for arresting hoarders. Of course, Ruth's reasoning against his perpetually undefined “price gouging” does justify (and has justified) prohibiting hoarding, arresting consumers who hoard, confiscating their goods, and imposing rationing and general economic socialism, with any disaster as the pretense. Ruth's brain doesn't travel that far, though. Indeed, it doesn't even travel far enough to suspect that some people who hoard before a disaster are the people who are gouging after a disaster.
This space was curious. Since Ruth, the lazy statist from hell, thinks laws against price gouging are so swell, how would he feel if he had to wait longer hours to buy a bag of ice for a government-controlled price, or discover that there was no gas at the government-controlled price?
The Karl Marx of the Twilight Zone responded with a bunch of journalistic babble about injustice in modern America and an attack on free market economics, concluding by accusing this space of being libertarian. I assume that's bad.
Still the Felliniesque Fidel Castro had never answered the original question.
Ruth pondered another simple query: How would he feel if he personally knew of people taking goods into a disaster area to sell them at prices that were higher than before the disaster? He'd be happy to see them arrested, or to see them personally suffer violence at the hands of statist vigilantes (or maybe both?).
Indeed, it was evident that it had never entered Ruth's mind, after Hurricane Andrew, to load up a truck with a bunch of necessities, rush into a disaster area and sell people whatever they needed and wanted for whatever they would gladly pay.
This proves three things. A) Statists are greedy, lazy %$#!@?$!#+ who won't help others, and who will take property from others, and they are nasty people who will use government to get their way. And B) For all his economic claptrap, Daniel Ruth is completely clueless if he thinks no one can go into a disaster area to charge people extra for goods for which they would gladly pay; and C) There is a reason why it never occurs to people like Ruth to load up a truck and drive into any disaster area --but Ruth will never figure out what that reason is, or how it is related to his naive, statist keister and his willingness to kick others around while he whines for more government, in the safety of his cubicle, far from any disaster area.
As well, irrespective of inane statist economic theories or statutes, all laws against price gouging are simply morally wrong because they worsen the circumstances of people when they are at their lowest emotional and financial ebb, forcing them to go without or to endure longer lines and bigger shortages.
It is an essential cornerstone of statists to promote and defend the role of government in virtually all aspects of life. That sounds fine until the socialist bureaucrats arrive to pick away at human pride with their economic disasters before, during and after a natural disaster.
The irony, of course, is that one of the reasons we have so much prosperity and abundance, even with Ruth's perpetually undefined “price-gouging”, is because a free market protects the public against the likes of the Daniel Ruth's of the world.
For not only is Ruth a writer with a big public forum, his reasoning is that of half-baked socialism/statism. Terrifying.

Other descriptions of Daniel Ruth's ignorance:
"News media throughout the United States and especially here in the southeast have been reporting extensively on gasoline shortages. Over 90% of service stations are without gas at any one time in the metro Atlanta area. When a supply truck arrives, car drivers drive long distances and wait in lines 10 or more cars long, blocking roads and intersections to get gas, typically exhausting the station’s new supply within hours. The media also reports on Georgia laws against gas price "gouging" – whereby stations attempting to sell gas at an undefined "too high" price can be subject to $15,000 penalties; other states in the southeast have similar laws. The news media, however, neglect to point out how these two issues are necessarily connected." from Government Gouging by Aaron Bilger 9-29-08
And federal appeals court judge Richard Posner said on his blog in 2007 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina that calls for anti-gouging laws reflect “sheer ignorance of basic economics (a failure of our educational system) and demagogic appeals by politicians to that ignorance.”

DANIEL RUTH is LYNDON LAROUCHE?
Daniel Ruth and Lyndon LaRouche. Daniel aka "LaRouche La Ruth." Has anyone ever seen these two together? The mystery of Ruth's hybrid toupee / combover question is solved? Daniel Ruth is notorious for nazi-style name-calling. See http://rexcurry.net/daniel-ruth-lyndon-larouche.jpg
Daniel Ruth and the Tampa Tribune promote fetishism. They promote fetishism by covering up the history of the Pledge of Allegiance. http://rexcurry.net/daniel-ruth-tampa-tribune.html
Recently, Ruth was schooled by RexCurry.net about the Pledge.
In an article about the web site Ruth did not dispute the work of the noted historian Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets"). http://rexcurry.net/daniel-ruth-tampa-tribune-pledge.jpg
In the past Ruth was exposed by Dr. Rex Curry when Curry handed Ruth a humiliating defeat in a public debate dare. Ruth publicly apologized to Dr. Curry for Ruth's errors. The response against Ruth from the general public was so great that Ruth said he was labeled a "Dork, anti-free market statist $#@%!&@, Dummkopf, liberal, daffy, dolt, stupid, dunce and, oh by the way, socialist." http://rexcurry.net/ruth.html
Ruth's use of "socialist" is very telling in that Ruth covers-up for the National Socialist German Workers Party and its deadly dogma. Ruth has probably never written the actual name of the group "National Socialist German Workers Party" ever in the Tribune (check it yourself).
On the Tribune's flag fetishism, Silvestrini and Ruth are disturbingly silent about Francis Bellamy, Edward Bellamy and their racism, bigotry, militarism, robotic chanting for children, and authoritarian socialism (and their influence upon German National Socialism, its symbols and rituals). Their silence becomes deafening about the related hate-mongering, persecution, violence, and even lynchings inspired by the Bellamys and their socialist religion. It becomes scarier in that Ruth refers to himself as the "Book of Ruth."
Good Grief, Lyndon LaRouche was not as delusional as Ruth is. Ruth writes flippantly about torture. LaRouche La Ruth's insane clown posse act is like something out of "Apocalypse Now" meets "A Clockwork Orange."
For many years, the near-sighted loony leprechaun (Ruth) has flittered about the fringes of political life in the Tampa Bay area as a sort of scary class clown, in the "special" section, hoping that his kindergarten cracks will make his teachers give up and leave him alone.
Ruth once told a critic that Ruth would let the critic find out if Ruth has a hybrid toupee/combover if the critic paid Ruth $5000 (Ruth knew that if Ruth put the price high enough the critic would pass on Ruth's toupee/combover question). Ruth, a Dominick Dunne wannabe, is the Rump-hole of the Insanely. One suspects that Ruth's flatulence worsens whenever Ruth rubs his brain cells together. Both of them.
Ruth remains jealously mad about Dr. Curry's success in exposing Ruth and that explain's Ruth's pirouettes of linguistic blather. http://rexcurry.net/ruthmore.html
Previously, LaRouche La Ruth proved his supreme economic ignorance. Recently, he has proven his historical ignorance and his legal ignorance.
It is no wonder that Ruth's columns never state any
qualifications he has to write articles about the topic
(or any articles). Only Ruth's phone number and email
address were given with no biographical or background
information (nor any link to such information).
There is a complete lack of disclosure of whether
Ruth has any licensing or educational achievement that
qualifies him to write on such a topic, how he was
selected, nor how much Ruth was paid to write the piece
(It might embarrass him if they printed what he was paid).
Ruth learned to write in government schools on
Planet Zircon 9. Compared to Dr. Curry's illustrious
career, Ruth's name is longer than Ruth's career
As a career move, Daniel Ruth should not become a lawyer.
His "journalism" might cause some people to wonder
he is competent even to write about legal issues,
or to write at all about anything. If Ruth is considering
a job change then here is a Memo to Daniel Ruth: Don't
start packing your bags. Ruth is in a turd trap as the
Tampa Tribune twists down
the toilet. See any internet search for "Tampa Tribune
If there has ever been an article about Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge of Allegiance) in Ruth's newspaper it repeated the usual shallow propaganda common to most "news" outlets. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-pledge.html
In that way, the Tampa Tribune perpetuates flag fetishism by repeating disinformation through touch-holes such as Ruth. They keep their readers ignorant.
Ruth's writing is similar to robotic chanting in worship of the state. His writing is robotic repetition of claptrap that is taught by the government and learned in government schools (socialist schools). http://rexcurry.net/saying-the-pledge-of-allegiance-pictures.html
That is why the self-important and smug Ruth does not make important discoveries; Ruth writes (badly) about the people who do make important discoveries.
Ruth will not state the simple issue: The Pledge of Allegiance (and its author) was the origin of the salute of the National Socialist German Workers Party and influenced its symbols and rituals. Ruth is a denier and a historical revisionist. Is Ruth dense or does lack of integrity and honesty make him unwilling to provide simple accurate reporting?
Ruth failed to discuss nor even enumerate the six or more issues in Dr. Curry's legal brief argued on behalf of the defendant in a recent federal appellate hearing. Ruth has the ability to let his audience decide for themselves because Ruth could post Dr. Curry's brief on the web site of the Tampa Tribune or TBO.com, but Ruth did not do so and will not do so because the brief would expose his inane comments, omissions and cover-ups. Readers are misled and kept ignorant.
If you read newspapers for years then you will see all manner of ditzoid craziness that slops its way over the journalistic gunwales -claims of UFO abductions, the conspiracy theorists, Nazi cabals, deranged threatening environmentalists and people who believe monkeys are taking over the world.
And those are just some of the serious news stories. There are some newspaper writers, too, who are really weird. Take Daniel Ruth. Please, take him.
For all the black helicopter sightings and arguments Shecky Green and the Jewish lobby control the government and Y2K means the end of the world, Daniel Ruth has to be not only the most certifiably insane, but perhaps the most twistedly evasive.
The Felliniesque Fidel Castro never answered any of the original questions. For example, why is the federal government growing so large, taking over criminal law nationwide, and becoming involved in what in the past would have been state level cases? Daniel Ruth - a "newspaper" writer - weighed in with one long sputtering bluster against historical reality. Loopy Ruth did his usual mental blank-out. The Karl Marx of the Twilight Zone responded with a bunch of journalistic babble and name-calling that is his "trademark."
Ruth is one of the most visible local disciples of the Tampa Tribune, which ought to have his embarrassed fellow travelers donning Groucho Marx disguises around the office and about town.
You have to wonder what schools Ruth went to. Government schools? The government taught him everything it knows and he is still stupid. But that is statist quo.
Ruth a writer with a big public forum and his reasoning is that of half-baked socialism/statism. Terrifying.
Ruth's remarks are a reminder of the cliche' "If you can't do, and you can't teach, then write."
Ruth knows that the media debate challenge that was
issued by Dr. Rex Curry as quoted by another Tribune
Elaine Silvestrini ), is also available to Ruth and Ruth
that everyone else knows that Ruth has always been too
to do it over the many years and he never will. The only
is fooling is himself.
Ruth's comments raise the question of whether Ruth is unable to recognize any meritorious arguments in the six or more issues raised on behalf of the defendant in the brief. One of those issues was "insufficiency of the evidence" which is probably the most common issue argued in appeals of criminal cases.
Ruth's comments are especially odd considering that similar appellate issues were raised and argued in six issues raised by another attorney in a related case involving Scott Schweickert, charged as a co-conspirator.
Was Ruth saying that he would provide ineffective assistance of counsel to a defendant by waiving / abandoning all the issues? Was Ruth saying that Ruth would file an Anders brief for both defendants (in an Anders brief a defense attorney openly states that he believes there are no meritorious issues to argue for a defendant)?
Ineffective assistance of counsel is shown primarily by waiving and abandoning issues. Not by having an extra issue that is not victorious. Most appeals are unsuccessful, meaning that all arguments made in most cases are rejected by the appellate court.
Here is other information that was known to Daniel Ruth and that he omitted from his article: The issues raised in Dr. Curry's brief are not uncommon and similar to most of the issues raised in other briefs, such as that of the Defendant Scott Schweikert (for example, insufficiency of the evidence). Some of the issues were also raised in articles in Ruth's newspaper (the Tampa Tribune) about the case and are also supported by comments made by some judges, jurors and other observers concerning the charges, the trial and the sentence (and some of that is in the brief). The issues are also supported by other people such as the former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi (author of the book "The Prosecution of President George W. Bush for Murder"). It is also consistent with what has been the law historically in the U.S.A.
Some of the issues have also met with some success in United States v. Stewart 348 F.3d 1132 (9th Cir. 2003) an opinion by Judge Alex Kozinski (who
will be speaking in Tampa to the Federal Bar Association during the same month as this communication to Silvestrini). The Stewart case is available at various locations on the web including http://bulk.resource.org/courts.gov/c/F3/348/348.F3d.1132.02-10318.html
Similar arguments were made unsuccessfully in Gonzales v. Raich, 545 U.S. 1 (2005) (the medical marijuana case cited in the government's brief and in Dr. Curry's brief). United States v. Stewart is a case involving a challenge to the constitutionality of 18 U.S.C. § 922o under the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution. The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that mere possession of homemade machine guns can not be constitutionally regulated by the United States Congress under the Commerce Clause. Upon granting certiorari, the Supreme Court of the United States vacated the Ninth Circuit's ruling and remanded the case back to the court for further consideration in light of its ruling in Gonzales v. Raich, 545 U.S. 1 (2005) where a new decision was issued in Stewart. see http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/coa/newopinions.nsf/315E1DE83BC0D4258
Ruth's inability to undertand the jurisdictional argument on appeal (that the federal government lacked jurisdiction in the case) is bizarre in light of the May 1, 2007 article in the Tampa Tribune reporting that Judge Merryday "...said the federal government is 'not situated to prosecute the real offense, which prosecution is situated in the state of Florida.' "
The Tampa Tribune also wrote, regarding Curry's client:
"In sentencing [the defendant] last year, U.S. District
Judge Richard Lazzara said that if he were a circuit judge
[state level] and the prosecution had brought capital
murder charges, the government would have no
trouble establishing the presence of four aggravating
factors - facets of the case legally required for a death
Ruth is guilty of ineffective assistance of reporting.
Every landmark decision by a federal appellate court or the Supreme Court (e.g. Miranda, or the recent case finding the sentencing guidelines unconstititional) is a "landmark" case because it was unanticipated by most people, including such as Ruth and his ilk.
Ruth is ignorant about the topic of articles that he writes. Although he refused to include it in column, Ruth was aware of Dr. Curry's famous drug-dog case resulting in the suppression of evidence. The government unsuccessfully tried to appeal all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court denied the government's petition on Oct. 31, 2005 in case # 04-1668. Search for "Matheson" on this web page http://supreme.lp.findlaw.com/supreme_court/orders/2005/103105pzor.html
The government also unsuccessfully appealed to Florida's Supreme Court to overturn the victory. Also see the Second District Court of Appeal opinoin at
Ruth deliberately leaves pertinent information out of his columns to make his columns misleading. Although he refused to include it in his article, Ruth was aware of another case in which a prosecutor wanted Dr. Curry to abandon an issue and withdraw a motion to suppress evidence. Instead, Curry's motion was granted and the government dismissed the charges against Curry's client as well as two other defendants.

People of Ruth's ilk were completely discouraging about Curry's drug-dog case at the trial level and then wondered why Curry bothered to initiate the appeal. Later, the same people all expressed amazement at Curry's victory and cited his case.
All "landmark" cases are cases that seemed pointless until the unexpected happened.
How would the Supreme Court ever reverse itself (and it has done so) if no one ever bothered to try and keep raising issues upon which the Supreme Court has already ruled?
Daniel Ruth displayed his igorance about President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's court-packing scam. That scam was as unexpected as was the Supreme Court's "switch in time that saved nine" (also known as the "switch in time that socialized nine") that drastically changed the course of the federal courts.
Ruth doesn't try. Ruth is ineffective and unable to do anything but give up and bend over for the government/prosecution. Ruth would provide ineffective assistance by deliberately NOT raising issues on appeal because he doesn't want to "distract" from other arguments. That is a complete waiver / abandonment of the issues.
There are many REAL examples of ineffective assistance from people who DID abandon issues, using Ruth's reasoning.
The opposite can also occur with a good lawyer: Give the judges a unique issue so that they think that the brief is interesting and they want to have oral arguments, unlike the thousand boring briefs that all sound the same that are filed by the people of Ruth's ilk, and that aren't set for oral arguments.
Dr. Curry's appellate brief was set for oral argument by the appellate court.
