William Cook on Goldstone, Ellen Brown on Japan & Banksters

Truth Jihad Radio Friday 4/22/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Professor William Cook will discuss his recent article "Sinning Against Zionism: Traitor to Country," the most eloquent response I have seen to Justice Goldstone's nauseating and cowardly attempt to undermine his own report on the war crimes of Israel's Dec. 2008 - Jan. 2009 assault on Gaza...an assault which has continued ever since in only slightly less virulent form. We'll also discuss his follow-up article (complete with amazing pictures) "Now Israel is free to declare its innocence before the ICJ."

William A. Cook is a professor of English at the University of La Verne in southern California and author of The Rape Of Palestine: Hope Destroyed, Justice Denied, Tracking Deception: Bush Mid-East Policy and The Chronicles Of Nefaria. He is editor of MWCNEWS.

Second hour: Ellen Brown will discuss the topics of her recent articles including:

* The international banksters' ongoing assault on Japan's gargantuan postal public bank (will the Fukushima disaster provide the "shock doctrine" pretext to sell it off to the Rothschilds?)

* How Wisconsin could turn austerity into prosperity by starting a public bank;

* Libya: Is it about oil, or banking?

  2. Brown's superb, must-read book is wholly non-anti-semitic, but there's one line that made me smile, pretty much word for word as I don't have it here:

    The *goldsmiths* were repeatedly thrown out of various European countries.

    Haha.

  3. Hi Kevin. I'm a little behind in listening to your radio shows. This is regarding your relatively recent interview with Ellen Brown. It was apparent from Ms. Brown's answer to your question about how Egypt, with a little strip of green along the Nile and a huge impoverished population could institute a monetary system that would enable them to prosper, that she doesn't understand what money is. She described a solution based on the issuance of credit and control of the interest gleaned via the extending of these credits, which would be pumped back into the economy, thus engendering economic prosperity. This reveals that Ms. Brown does not understand what money really is. It is not credit!.

    I encourage you, and Ms Brown to read Stephen Zarlenga's The Lost Science of Money. From chapter 24 pg. 656, where he summarizes the conclusions or his analysis of real world experiences with money for over 3,00 years...

    from Aristotle - "Money exists not by nature but by law"
    from Plato - "a money token for the purpose of exchange"
    from Paulus - "This device being officially promulgated, circulated and maintained its purchasing power not so much from its substance as from its quantity."
    from Berkley - "Whether the true idea of money as such, be not altogether that of a ticket, or counter?"
    from Locke & Franklin - who viewed money as a pledge for wealth rather than wealth itself
    from Del Mar - "...what is commonly understood as money has always consisted, tangibly, of a number of pieces of some material, marked by public authority and named or understood in the laws or customs: that its palpable characteristic was its mark of authority; its essential characteristic, the possession of value, defined by law; and its function, the legal power to pay debts and taxes and the mechanical power to facilitate the exchange of other objects possessing value."
    from Knapp - "Our test, that the money is accepted in payments made to state offices."
    from Zarlenga - "Money's essence (apart from whatever is used to signify it), is an abstract social power embodied in law, as an unconditional means of payment.

    Ms. Brown's assertion that the valuation of money should be based on some commodity basket of goods is a regression of monetary theory. I encourage you to visit the Zarlenga's site at the American Monetary Institute http://www.monetary.org/ and see what he has to say about the true nature and definition of money. Bring Zarlenga on as a guest!
