It’s Our Money with Ellen Brown – Is George Orwell Smiling? – 02.17.16

Perhaps he’s just smirking, as the merged worlds of global finance and transnational government play out their collaborations of control and deception in the name of a new world order they control. Ellen speaks this week with noted historian, economic researcher and journalist William Engdahl about some backstory facts that belie popular news story narratives from mainstream reporters and government authorities. “War is Peace” is just one of those. Later, we revisit another powerful narrative deception rolling our way in the form of the Trans Pacific Partnership as we look at some of its deceptive and unbelievable features with anti-TPP activist Kevin Zeese. And Matt Stannard brings it all home with his insightful observations about how these factors play out in our global climate reality.

It’s Our Money with Ellen Brown – Mad as Hell – 06.24.15

Anchorman Howard Beale’s outburst that mobilized a nation to scream out their windows in anger at the tyranny of the powers-that-be makes an apt sequel to this week’s news that Fast Track approval of the TPP appears imminent. Ellen speaks with Kevin Zeese, the foremost leader of national citizen’s campaigns pushing back against the obvious collusion of government leaders and corporate interests. It will have you heading toward your own windows. Co-host Walt McRee speaks with Chuck Watts of the Empathy Surplus Project about the power of language in creating the new economy and a new generation of public policy, while Matt Stannard reflects on Wells Fargo’s recent efforts at impacting social justice.
