Below is a conversation that is unlike any that I have heard before. When preparing for interviews, Dave Kranzler and I usually go over what we are going to discuss, how to get the show started, and how we will hand off the conversation. It’s a good formula that has served us well. We are very, very grateful Dr. Roberts had other ideas.
Our world, as many of you know, is experiencing massive, unprecedented change at an ever increasing pace. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, is not only one of the foremost economists in the world, but he also has one of the world’s most respected voices covering the geopolitical landscape.
The American people are asleep at the wheel. The blame is not totally theirs, but they do bare the brunt of the blame. The mainstream media does not report what is happening within our economy or the geopolitical arena, unless they can spew on and on about the endless rainbows, unicorns, and how “America is the greatest and Putin is the devil.” No depth of coverage, nothing of real value reported, so the American people are left ignorant and wanting for truth. When you work 2 or more part time jobs, are struggling with keeping a roof over your head, and the kids need new shoes, it becomes a challenge to seek the truth, even though you know the “report” Brian Williams just delivered is a fabricated piece of fantasy. There is almost no truth to be found in the American mainstream media.
One of the best ways to understand what is happening today in places like Syria, Ukraine, and the Middle East is to take a step back and see what history has shown. Most all situations in the human experience have roots in the past. As Mark Twain said, “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” That certainly applies to the ever encroaching American police state and the unfolding war in Syria, Ukraine, and the Middle East. Does that sound like world war, or is it just me? What has happened over the past several years in places like Iraq, Libya, and Syria has roots in the late 1990’s. The Project for a New American Century, a “think-tank," founded by Dick Cheney, one of the most die-hard neocons the world has ever seen, developed a plan to invade – that’s right, invade – 7 countries in 5 years. Their plan is taking longer than originally thought, but I am not sure if Russian and Chinese resistance was part of the calculation. The development of al-Queada, which has now morphed into ISIS, has not gone as planned, either. ISIS appears to be morphing into its own entity that the CIA is having a hard time controlling. The rogue band of mercenaries is going rogue in a way that was not foreseen.
Dr. Roberts describes the evolution of the “deep state” and how the neocons have a strangle hold on the American political process that is hard to shake. These psychopathic warmongers are not concerned with anything except power, blood-lust, and their own sense of “destiny.” The tapestry that Dr. Roberts weaves begins with Nixon and the Vietnam War and winds it’s way through the latest meeting between President Putin and Secretary of State John Kerry. The picture is clear, and it details how we have arrived at the brink of nuclear annihilation. The three part series is not to be missed. To get the whole picture you need to listen all the way through. It was intentionally broken into smaller pieces, to allow the info to sink in. As I said, we are facing a world in change, and the pace is quickening. Give this a good listen and let us know what you think.
