It’s Our Money with Ellen Brown – Bankers Get Paid First – 05.31.17

Ever notice that regardless of what additional level of public suffering is required, payment of bank debt by governments transcends all.  Debt is the mechanism by which private capital interests retain and control power over public interest and prospects, which is why creating public banks is so important for our cities, counties and states.  This week Ellen talks with a …

Leid Stories–Behind the Flynn Hearing: The ‘I’ Word?—05.09.17

The ongoing probe into President Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s alleged dealings with and unreported income he earned from high-level Russian officials is at center stage in Washington. The spillover has enmeshed the Obama administration and the former president himself, who had fired Flynn and hard warned Trump against hiring him, allegedly because Flynn was considered a security risk.

NEW SHOW ALERT: The Conspiracy Guy – 3.08.17

The Conspiracy Guy #15: The Wikileaks release of documents about the capacities and practices of the CIA in infiltrating networks and spying on Americans, including the ability to falsify the sources of hacks (as having been done by Russians, for example), renders the CIA’s claims that Russia hacked the DNC files an enormous joke! The unrelenting attacks upon President Trump for being “out of touch with reality” is contradicted by the revelation of a dozen instances of CIA spying on foreign leaders and American journalists, which puts the lie to the protestation by an Obama spokesman that Obama never conducted surveillance on an US citizen. The law, moreover, grants the power to initiate electronic surveillance without a court order by going through the Attorney General. It thus appears that Loretta Lynch was the party who, at the President’s direction, allows the surveillance to be conducted on Donald J. Trump during the campaign and prior to election. Mark Levin has documented (from public sources) the history of the campaign against Trump, which now appears to be part-and-parcel of an effort to overthrow the government of the United States by means of a “soft coup”. Whether or not it succeeds may well depend upon the speed and extent to which the new president is able to “drain the swamp” before he he overwhelmed by a completely unscrupulous media campaign, which confirms what William Colby, then its Director, explained to Congress, namely: that the agency owns everyone of significant in the mainstream media.

Chelsea E Manning – Compromise does not work with our political opponents. When will we learn?

Barack Obama left behind hints of a progressive legacy. Unfortunately, despite his faith in our system and his positive track record on many issues over the last eight years, there have been very few permanent accomplishments. This vulnerable legacy should remind us that what we really need is a strong and unapologetic progressive to lead us. What we need as …

JOSHUA FRANK – Farewell Obummer, Hello Golden Showers

There’s been a few hot topics this week, from Obama’s final speech as president to the amusing allegations of Donald’s pee fetish. Let’s start with Obama. The era of hope and change most certainly ended with a whimper. Not much has changed and we don’t have much to hope for either. Over the last eight years income disparity increased in the US (despite …

Robert Fisk – We are not living in a ‘post-truth’ world, we are living the lies of others

We do not live in a “post-truth” world, neither in the Middle East nor in the West – nor in Russia, for that matter. We live in a world of lies. And we always have lived in a world of lies. Just take a look at the wreckage of the Middle East with its history of people’s popular republics and …

ROBERT FISK – Amnesia at the UN: the Massacres Samantha Power Conveniently Forgot to Mention

So there was Samantha Power doing her “shame” bit in the UN. “Is there no act of barbarism against civilians, no execution of a child that gets under your skin, that just creeps you out a little bit?”, America’s ambassador to the UN asked the Russians and Syrians and Iranians. She spoke of Halabja, Rwanda, Srebrenica “and, now, Aleppo”. Odd, …
