Once again, the NoLiesRadio servers have been crashed right before my show - and come back on line immediately after show time. So this interview has been rescheduled for Thursday. Message to the bad guys: If you think this is going to somehow impede my efforts to bust your sorry asses, think again.
Guest: Journalist and author Ellen Brown, author of the currency-reform classic Web of Debt.
Recently I have been getting bashed by Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, who says I am among the "most popular" 9/11 truth figures who argue that Israel and its American supporters had a hand in 9/11. My old friend Elias Davidsson, who thinks 9/11 was a crime of US empire, not Zionism, wrote to question and challenge me.
In fact, my position is that Zionism and Israel are just one part of the puzzle. 9/11 was the crime of a certain global plutocracy, and building a one-word dictatorship of the financiers - not just maintaining and expanding Israel - appears to be their overarching motive. Zionists, US-empire-fanatics, military profiteers, social-control specialists and other bad guys all had their own motives for participating.
In her brand-new article War: The Fiscal Stimulus of Last Resort, Ellen Brown explains one of the key motives behind 9/11, which tripled the military budget:
After 9/11, the pop hit “War” was placed on the list of post-9/11 inappropriate titles distributed by Clear Channel.
Protesters have been trying to stop the military juggernaut ever since the end of World War II, yet the war machine is more powerful and influential than ever. Why? The veiled powers pulling the strings no doubt have their own dark agenda, but why has our much-trumpeted system of political democracy not been able to stop them?
The answer may involve our individualistic, laissez-faire brand of capitalism, which forbids the government to compete with private business except in cases of “national emergency.” The problem is that private business needs the government to get money into people’s pockets and stimulate demand. The process has to start somewhere, and government has the tools to do it. But in our culture, any hint of “socialism” is anathema. The result has been a state of “national emergency” has had to be declared virtually all of the time, just to get the government’s money into the economy.Yet military spending is the worst possible way, from an economics standpoint, to pump money into an economy - which is why the economy has been dead in the water ever since 9/11 tripled the military budget.
