Dave Lindorff, Webster Tarpley on Truth Jihad Radio

Truth Jihad Radio Sat. 3/27/10, 5-7 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (to be archived here.) Call-in number: 512-879-3805.

First hour: Dave Lindorff: "Award-winning investigative reporter Dave Lindorff has been working as a journalist for 36 years. A regular columnist for CounterPunch, he also writes frequently for Extra! and Salon magazine, as well as for Businessweek, The Nation and Treasury&Risk Magazine..." More bio here.

Dave is the author of four books and countless articles and op-eds including Death to Obamacare: Kill Bill, the main subject of our conversation tonight. Dave also gets credit for breaking the story of the government lying and denying that two black boxes were found in the World Trade Center rubble (he appeared on the 9/11 episode of Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory, and has discussed the black boxes on earlier Truth Jihad Radio shows).

Second hour: Webster Tarpley asks: Is history repeating itself? On this day in history, a momentous but largely forgotten event enabled the rise of the Nazis. Tarpley says we're facing a parallel situation today: a second wave of the depression is coming, setting the stage for not just fascism lite (like Obamacare) but the real thing in full jackbooted regalia. He'll talk about how to stop it, what desperately-needed measures (such as the Tobin tax) would end the depression and restore prosperity, and more.

  1. All in all this was a pretty amazing show. Both guests were running on all cylinders and then some. Webster built his interview around today being the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the end of the Weimar Republic, and his lecture/interview became a real work of art.

  2. Look at photos of glaciers and tell me they are not melting. Ditto the poles

    Not hopeless, but certainly very scary. Carbon tax and trap and trade are not the answer!

    Again, the chemistry in the upper atmosphere and Ozone, without which there would be no life, or little life, is indisputable. Every molecule of chlorine and methane that makes it up that high, which takes about 50 years or so, if memory serves, will destroy, potentially, an infinite number of O (Ozone) molecules, or nearly so. I guess that they can be captured in a stable bond, but, until then, they go through a secondary reaction, after they kill the first O molecule, which renders them free agents ready to kill again.

  3. good point!

    other species and their ecosystems probably wouldn't vote for unlimited techno-growth if they could vote

  4. :-)

    I like Webster A LOT! He's a walking talking database. But, like Alex Jones, I disagree with him on peak oil and global warming. But, trying to deal with those things without first dealing with 9/11, the wars & Israel is like putting the cart before the horse.

    Just wanted to put my two cents into the show without calling in.
