1-2 pm: Peymon and a surprise guest!
2-3 pm: Jeff Blankfort, who emailed me last week saying "I've been Duffed!" Jeff was referring to Gordon Duff's remarks on last week's Truth Jihad Radio, which are transcribed below. (Listen to the Duff interview here.) So I'm offering Jeff, one of the sharpest and most prolific voices in alternative journalism, the chance to reduff Duff.
First Section of Last Week's Interview with Gordon Duff (topic: Rupert Murdoch scandal, etc.)
One of my regular radio guests, Jeff Blankfort, wrote me: "Kevin: There is no evidence that Rupert Murdoch is an Israeli citizen. There have been allegations that he was Jewish and I included him on the first list I made of Jews in the media but subsequent investigation did not bear that out so I removed him....He has been honored a number of times by Jewish groups like the ADL and he has given speeches expressing his undying love and support for Israel but I think that is more a recognition by Murdoch of Jewish power which could bring him down if he ever took a line that wasn't solidly pro-Israel."
Christopher Bollyn has an opposite opinion. He writes that Murdoch "has served his purpose: to sell the global deception of 9/11...the global Murdoch media empire was created with Rothschild funding and exists to spread Zionist propaganda among the English-speaking nations of the world. Murdoch's son James is in line to take over at the helm of their media empire, although it is quite likely that the empire will not survive very long after Rupert Murdoch passes away."
Let's see what Gordon Duff thinks. Welcome, Gordon Duff, to Truth Jihad Radio. How are you?
Hey, Kevin. You certainly went to the opposite poles there. To Mr. Israeli Spokesman himself, Blankfort...
We're fair and balanced here! I'm the real "fair and balanced." Fox News stole it from me.
And Blankfort and I by the way...we're all in a round-robin email thing where we've been communicating - fighting, not fighting - for years. And Blankfort's a great writer...
He is. And he's prolific. He cranks out almost as much stuff as you do.
Well, Blankfort got caught with his fingers in the cookie jar on Wikileaks. He came out as a powerful defender of Wikileaks, as independent, as an independent voice. And then Wikileaks of course turned out to be a Zionist-controlled intelligence operation, even spoken of as such by Zbigniew Brzezinski, that had one job, and that was to create some sort of validation for an attack on Iran. That's the whole Assange thing.
Didn't work very well.
Wikileaks is dead! And Kevin...(laughing)...I killed him (Assange), nobody can bring him back -
So you think this is a litmus-test issue? That if you have a writer like Jeff Blankfort, who I get along with fine - I think he's honest -
Jeff's a good guy.
And he's a good writer. But Jeff is not...he is not one of us. Jeff is extremely mainstream, a big defender of Israel, re-packaged as a freedom-loving anti-Zionist. He's a smart guy, he's nice people.
I wish there were more "defenders of Israel" like Jeff Blankfort.
Well, he does a good job carrying water for them, pretending to be one of us. And that I sometimes resent. And then he's an angry guy.
I'm sure he gets angry with you when you call him an agent! (laughter)
Kevin, one of these things about being...let's say, professionally trained. I have this built-in...can I say "bullshit" on the radio?
(Imitating security alarm) NNNNNYYYYYAHHHH! Sorry folks, we've just been taken off the air, Homeland Security has prevented us from continuing this show due to Gordon's filthy mouth. (laughter)
And Blankfort and Israel Shamir totally pegged (the BS meter) into the red. Let's say they were more or less caught up in...and this one, this one is almost insanely bad. I work as a defense contractor. That's no big secret. I train intelligence personnel. Intelligence analysts. At a national level. And I've been doing this for a long time. So when I'm traveling on the nickel I get to stay in good hotels. When I'm in the UK, I'm with Special Branch. I have five, six SAS people with me all the time. These are my friends. Including people that are looking at getting in trouble on this Murdoch thing. People who are close to these guys are people I've known - and frankly, people I'm close to.
You've got friends going to jail on this one, Gordon?
Well, here's what I'm told on this, anyway. I'm told that James Murdoch's going to jail next week. They've got an arrest warrant with his name on it sitting there right now.
Interesting. He's the heir apparent.
And Blankfort knows. Not only that the Murdochs are the Oppenheimer family, one of the great Jewish banking families...and Bollyn...Bollyn's a great researcher. A lot of places where nobody has ever gone, Chris Bollyn has gone. He does quality work, and he doesn't have an agenda. Nobody's paying Chris! (laughter) So I have a lot of respect for Chris, and we're on the same emails, the alternative journalism people. What am I saying, YOU're on these emails!
I'm on these same emails, Gordon, and sometimes I get more than I really need to read. (laughter)
It's like five-year-olds screaming at each other. Anyway, I know we've talked about this before, but I put up a video from Press TV with Alan Sabrosky, one of my co-editors at Veterans Today, talking about Israel and 9/11. Go to Veterans Today and watch the Alan Sabrosky interview on the Press TV show Autograph.
It's a great interview, isn't it? My interviews with Alan are great too - I did one last week - but I'm not as good-looking as that Press TV interviewer.
Even the hijab can't hide that this is a very attractive person, as well as a good journalist. And I guess we shouldn't be saying sexist things like this on the air either. (security alarm sound) We've just been knocked off the air again.
Susan's a looker. Which is fine. And Alan...Alan's a fun guy. He's going through some health issues here. His injured shoulder has been off for a few days. So he did this while he was in a lot of pain, which might have shown.
I thought it was just painful to contemplate these things (Israel doing 9/11, controlled demolition of 3000 people, millions killed in subsequent wars...) Which of course it is.
Let's go over to Murdoch. And this is my private sources here. And (laughing) we're all idiots in our own sort of way. And we've got this world built on conspiracy. And the conspiracy nuts are not in alternative media. Fox News invented crazy conspiracy. Wasn't this Rush Limbaugh thing that the First Lady had murdered Vince Foster? Strangled him, and then put a gun in his hand on a park bench?
I always thought that was crazy. And then I learned that Mike Rivero seems to believe it.
We're not going to go into this with Mike! Mike is a fun guy also. Not everybody that we deal with...Well, who can define sane any more?
But let's go back to why I brought up Sabrosky. Sabrosky's mainstream. He taught at West Point. He was Director of Studies at the US Army War College for five years. Sabrosky comes out of the middle of the military-intelligence world. Two years ago - I think it's maybe three or so - Alan woke up one day - we've always talked - and said, "I've had these suspicions about 9/11. I knew something was really wrong, and I wake up one day and ask myself why haven't I been taking a strong look at it, and why haven't I done something about it?" And that means that for six years, Alan, and frankly some of the rest of us, have had our heads in the sand. Because the second it happened, a bell went off in my head, and I said, yeah, yeah, fighter jets are supposed to be shooting these planes down. I know that chain of command, I know the people on it. I know you can't turn it off. Or I didn't think you could, until I found that Rumsfeld did give himself that authority. 9/11 could not have occurred other than for him to make a series of personal orders. He and Cheney, and and and and and. And then of course I'd never heard of Building 7 for a long, long time, even as a journalist. What I did here - I got a call on 9/11. This is what I was told by a New York Police Detective, a friend of mine. He called me and said they had arrested two Israelis not on the intra-sub (?) but that they had arrested these people on the George Washington Bridge with 2,000 pounds of plastic explosives in a van. And they were leaving the vehicle. They were going to close the Bridge down.
That's a lot of plastic explosives. That could do some very serious damage to that bridge.
It could certainly blow the roadway out of the bridge. That's about it. And they (the police) were under the impression that there were other teams (attacking) other bridges and tunnels. They said there was a group that was going to close the Lincoln Tunnel. The guys who were picked up with the explosives absolutely were Israeli citizens. And I hadn't heard about the Dancing Israelis. If you haven't heard about this, google "Dancing Israelis" and we'll save some time on that one. But there were Israeli teams, with white vans, driving around New York trying to shut down Manhattan and push Manhattan into a panic. And that one of these teams, with explosives and weapons, was arrested. And a second team was arrested filming the planes going into the World Trade Center.
You would think that if they're going to send some planes into the World Trade Center, and then blow up those skyscrapers and blow up Building 7, you would think that would be enough. Why would they have to go around blowing up bridges and tunnels too?
With just the "19 hijackers" and the clean passport fluttering out of the sky, it just wasn't enough. They needed a full-fledged panic. They needed... People don't know when to stop. They weren't sure the country would go absolutely bonkers, that everybody would step into line. But lo and behold, everybody stepped into line. Walter Cronkite said, there is nobody out there - you and I weren't out there at the time - there is nobody out there to speak for the United States. There was no one there, as Sabrosky said, to speak for the United States when it was attacked by Israel.
That raises the issue: Supposedly there was a meeting of some high-level military people after 9/11. What are those guys' names...there were some colonels, basically, who said they got together after 9/11, put their heads together, understood it was an inside job and probably Israel did it. Col. Donn (de Grand-Pre) was one of these people. Do you know anything about that?
Oddly enough, I'm working on a project now in one of those US allied countries where I'm training people from a couple of government agencies. So I'm going into my dinosaur crowd. And one of them was the Chief of Intelligence for NATO. And a guy that I've got in Africa right now was the FBI's head of counter-terrorism at the time (9/11/2001). And the FBI was very much on top of the fact of who was involved and what happened. They absolutely knew. And they were aware in advance, as Susan Lindauer will tell you. And I sat through this meeting about three weeks ago in a hotel room in Washington, with...uh...a group of FBI. And we got to talk about this. They're totally on board with both of us.
That was the impression I got when I was interrogated by the FBI at Newark Airport. After I gave them my little 9/11 rap, they were all but nodding along with me.
Yeah, they're really on board. And I generally get along well with these guys. Now the Army guys are friends. But I've got a bunch of Army Intelligence guys who to this day have never heard of the USS Liberty...I think they live in a hole in the ground somewhere. (laughter) One of them is a very close friend. And we have violent personal confrontations over this, shoving matches. And this is old guy shoving matches! The equivalent of bum fights - over these issues!
You shove him and say "look at the USS Liberty!" Then he shoves you and says "they just mistook it for an old horse transport!"
He shoves me, and I say "Wait, your shoelace is untied." Then, WHACK! (laughter)
Seriously, he doesn't want to even look at the USS Liberty? Or he believes the cover story, that the Israelis mistook it for a horse transport that was vastly smaller, and didn't have any of those antennaes...
He believes the cover story. But it's more than that. This is someone who has met McGonagle, the Captain of the USS Liberty, more than once. Not only a Medal of Honor winner, now deceased, but who came out as the most credible individual saying this was a purposeful attack on a...well, the USS Liberty, that's another show here, something to look into.
I've done a couple.
I'd like to encourage listeners to go out and look into it, and then kind of wise up. They're going to have to learn how to put in their own bullshit meter, so when they turn on the regular news, their eyes start going back in their heads and --
We call it a BS meter here for the sake of the FCC. And we'll be right back...

First hour: Was Norway attack an Israeli black op? (My two cents here.) Guests: Dean Henderson and Gordon Duff. Dean Henderson recently authored Was Israel Behind Norway Terror Attacks? He is also the author of two books, Big Oil & their Bankers in the Persian Gulf and The Grateful Unrich: Revolution in 50 Countries. His articles have appeared in Multinational Monitor, In These Times, Paranoia and several other journals. A revolutionary and traveler to 50 countries, Dean co-founded of the U. of Montana Green Party and Ozark Heritage Region Peace & Justice Network. In 2004 he won the Democratic nomination for Congress in Missouri’s 8th District.
Gordon Duff has shall we say a "deep background" in the National Security sector. He is the editor of Veterans Today, and one of the most informative AND entertaining voices of our time, which is why he is a frequent guest on Truth Jihad Radio. He has written on the Norway attacks here.
Second hour: Should cannabis be legalized? What are the alternatives to the costly, damaging, some would say insane war on the evil weed? Guest: Christopher Fichtner, MD, psychatrist and author of Cannabinomics: The Marijuana Policy Tipping Point. Cannabinomics is a revolutionary new book reframing the marijuana* debate in a new conversation on the public policy task of cannabis management.
* Marijuana is an “Americanism” for the dried flowers and leaves of the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant

Tuesday, July 25th, 9-10 a.m Pacific (noon Eastern) on NoLiesRadio.org (archived here a few hours after broadcast):
Mike Gravel, the former Senator from Alaska and presidential candidate, is spearheading what may be the most promising push for a real 9/11 investigation: the 9/11 Commission Campaign, http://9-11cc.org/
Senator Gravel says the road to a real 9/11 investigation doesn't run through Washington, DC, where everyone is bought and paid for. Instead, it runs through direct democracy: Specifically, ballot initiatives in states that allow citizens to directly enact legislation.
He will be testifying at the upcoming Toronto Hearings.

Special "Let's Gang Up on Jonathan Kay" show with Prof. Anthony Hall, Joshua Blakeney, and (maybe) Barrie Zwicker
Two-hour special "let's gang up on Jonathan Kay" show! (Listen to last Thursday's interview with Kay here, and read my review of his book here.)
Jonathan Kay, author of Among the Truthers, may be diminutive in stature (intellectual as well as physical)...but that doesn't stop him from being a schoolyard bully. Instead of brawn, he uses the platform offered him by the Zionist plutocrats who own and run the media...to beat up on the smart kids. Well, it's time for the smart kids to take revenge! Anthony Hall, Joshua Blakeney and yours truly -- perhaps accompanied by Barrie Zwicker -- are laying in ambush...
Jonathan Kay savages me in twelve-libel-strewn pages of his book, putting me second only to Mike Ruppert, tied with Ken Jenkins, and ahead of David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage, as the most prominent of his "truther" targets. Kay has also gone after Professor Anthony Hall and graduate student Joshua Blakeney, both in the book and in his column at the National Post. And Kay's unbelievably condescending description of Barrie Zwicker, whose intellect and courage are far superior to his own, must be read to be believed.
Tune in and listen as truth takes revenge on lies...
* * *
Anthony Hall is Professor of Globalization Studies, University of Lethbridge, and author of The American Empire and the Fourth World and Earth Into Property. That two-volume revisionist history of recent centuries, told with an emphasis on the perspective of indigenous peoples, is essential reading for anyone who wants to know what is really going on on this troubled planet. Read Professor Hall's review of Jonathan Kay's Among the Truthers: "Jonathan Kay Defends the Sacred Myth of 9/11."
Joshua Blakeney, graduate student, University of Lethbridge, has been granted the Queen Elizabeth II Graduate Scholarship for his research entitled “The Origins of the Global War on Terror: Academic Debates and Interpretive Controversies.” Joshua is the author of the article Israel’s Fingerprints Are All Over 9/11 (And I’m Not Afraid to Say It!). Joshua, a student of alternative historian Anthony Hall, won the hotly competitive Queen Elizabeth scholarship last year with a proposal to research the 9/11 truth debates--and was pilloried by Jonathan Kay for his efforts.

Read my review of Among the Truthers:
First hour: Co-host Peymon Mottahedeh interviews Congressman James Trafficant! According to informed sources, Congressman Trafficant was taken down by the neocon-led coalition responsible for the 9/11 coup d'état. Set up for a bogus prosecution (like Congressman Mark Siljander, another good man hated by the Likudniks), Congressman Trafficant was expelled from Congress in 2002 and imprisoned for seven years, conveniently removing a thorn in the side of the 9/11 coup forces. Oh well, at least he wasn't Wellstoned...and is still with us to tell the tale here on Truth Jihad Radio!
Watch Congressman Trafficant discuss Zionist Control of the USA; eviscerate my old buddy Sean Hannity; and state that he never believed the 9/11 Commission Report and wants a real investigation of the crime of the century.
Second hour: Kevin interviews Tony Farrell, the whistle-blowing British police intelligence analyst (Principle Intelligence Analyst for the South Yorkshire Police) fired for writing an annual report on the "terror threat" exposing the 9/11 and 7/7 inside jobs. (Tony comes on about fifteen minutes into the hour.) Tony Farrell's employment discrimination court case is conveniently timed just before the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and promises to garner publicity for the truth movement -- perhaps with the help of insiders who, while outwardly opposing Farrell, are doing everything just right to help maximize publicity.

Truth Jihad Radio Wed. 7/20/11, 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: Robert Freeman, author of what may be the definitive statement on the current US president: Obama Was Used, And Is Now Used Up. Freeman, an economist, also has an interesting diagnosis of the current malaise, and has authored commentaries on the Arab Spring revolts and other topics. What's more, he got Iraq right back in 2004. He shares last week's guest James Kunstler's take on the gravity and immanence of Peak Oil and has weighed in on our culture of lies.
Second hour: University of Michigan philosophy professor David Skrbina comes out for 9/11 truth! What's more, he'll be discussing how he handles the subject in his classes (in which I have guest lectured). I have a personal interest in this topic, since I was forced out of the University of Wisconsin due to Rupert Murdoch & co's charges that I was "teaching conspiracy theories" to my students.
Dr. Skrbina is the author of four books including Panpsychism in the West (published by MIT Press) and the editor of several others. He is a pioneer of ecophilosophy and a specialist in philosophy of mind, history of philosophy, and environmental ethics.

We at Truth Jihad Radio hereby offer the Larry Silverstein Award for Chutzpah Above and Beyond the Call of Duty to...Federal Court Judge John Walker, George H.W. Bush's cousin and thus George W. Bush's second cousin.
Judge Walker and his two co-panelists have issued punitive sanctions against April Gallop's lawyers, including William Veale. Why? Because Gallop's legal team made a motion to recuse Walker from judging a lawsuit against Bush II Administration Officials, accusing those officials of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks.
This is the second set of sanctions Walker has slapped on Gallop's lawyers. The first was for bringing what Walker considered a "frivolous" lawsuit against his cousin.
Judge Walker did not merely dismiss the motion and refuse to recuse himself from a case arguing that his cousin's administration perpetrated the worst crime in US history. (No conflict of interest there!) He dismissed the motion AND sanctioned Veale for bringing it! This after having already sanctioned Gallop and her lawyers for bringing the case in the first place!!
In today's America, federal judges apparently think that they have no conflict of interest judging cases arguing that their own family members are involved in horrendous crimes...and if anybody sees the appearance of a conflict of interest, sanction them!
Had this rule been in force before 9/11 "changed everything," Judge Luciano could have presided over a case against his aptly-named son Lucky...Judge Manson could have presided over the case against her poor misunderstood son Charlie...Judge Gein could have sat in on the case claiming that his eccentric but generally decent nephew Eddie was making lampshades out of illicit materials...and all those cases could have been dismissed, with sanctions against those who brought them...and additional sanctions for asking the judges to recuse themselves!
The Silverstein Award for Chutzpah -- a silver-plated voice-activated nanothermite demolition charge that explodes when the words "pull it" are spoken -- will be bestowed upon Judge Walker in a private ceremony at Kennebunkport later this month.

EddieLeaks has posted today's Gordon Duff interview on Rupert Murdoch, along with supporting material, here.
Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 7/18/11, 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: Kourosh Ziabari (we're waiting for a final confirmation that he can make it) is a talented young Iranian journalist who interviewed me for Veterans Today a while back and whose recent interviews with Alison Weir and Abolghasem Bayyenat are must-reads - and whose July 8th article on Iran's recent indictment of 26 US officials is an inspiration! He also recently weighed in on the Murdoch scandal...speaking of which...
Second hour: Gordon Duff, editor of Veterans Today, may be the coming of the anti-Murdoch -- a well-connected guy who develops a hot new media model and changes the world with it, but in the direction of truth not lies, knowledge not ignorance, peace not war, and American interests not Zionist ones. We'll be discussing his latest, A Murdoch Note: A Word or Two About What Isn't Being Said:
Today the British papers not owned by Rupert Murdoch “rumored” that he might be jailed. Americans, even Brits, have little or no idea what is at risk here. There is simply no one who can report it when the individual who, not only controls the world’s largest news organization turns out to be, well, what?
Who is Rupert Murdoch?
What he is not is an Australian “right wing” billionaire. Murdoch, though born in Australia is an Israeli citizen and Jewish. Why is this important?
Murdoch is now admitted to have controlled the political systems in Britain and America for two decades. He has had the power to choose national leaders, make policy, pass laws at will. Where did the power come from?
We now know it came from spying, blackmail, bribery and propaganda.
What is his agenda? Ah, there’s the rub.
Was it about selling newspapers using scandals or spying in the name of Israel to push Britain and the United States into wars for Israel? There is a simple answer.
Murdoch’s primary motivation isn’t even that he is “for Israel.” Murdoch is, perhaps, the most influential Israeli, more powerful than Netanyahu. The problem with that is that his beliefs are what we call “ultra-nationalist.”
This makes him a threat. Ultra-nationalists are known to support wars, plan terrorist acts, manipulate populations into strife and racism, foster fear and panic, even financial ruin.
What are we describing here?

Other guests coming up this week include British anti-terror expert and truth-speaking hero Tony Farrell; University of Michigan professor David Skrbina, discussing the way he teaches about 9/11 and the truth movement in his philosophy classes; journalist, author and anti-truth-movement polemicist Jonathan Kay; eloquent Obama critic Robert Freeman; and more!

Truth Jihad Radio Fri. 7/15/11, 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: Guest host Peymon Mottahedeh is back from Alaska, and will be discussing the Ron Paul campaign with a guest expert.
Second hour: I (Kevin) will discuss spirituality (and the importance of truth) with Ron Rattner of Silly Sutras. Ron is an ethnically-Jewish truth-seeker who has journeyed through Christianity and mysticism to end up...well, read him yourself! As a Muslim, I can't disagree with his recent piece God Is One. Likewise, his report of a profound spiritual experience triggered by his repeated recital of "la ilaha ila llah" (no god but God!), the core of the Islamic profession of faith, resonates with some of my own experiences.

[Note: This interview is being rescheduled due Richie's illness...stay tuned for details.]
I'm looking forward to an interview by Richie Allen on Talk Radio Europe today at 2 pm Central.
We'll be talking about the upcoming 10th anniversary of the 9/11 coup d'état, and related matters.
I'll also be discussing my reaction to Jonathan Kay's book Among the Truthers, which finally arrived in the mail (postmarked June 27th -- remember, he originally said he'd be sending one in April, and needed to be reminded several times after that).
I wonder if one reason he was reluctant to send me the book was the fact that it libels me? I will be seeking legal advice as well as engaging with Jonathan in another interview (listen to our first one here)...assuming he's got the guts to square off with someone he's libeled.

Tuesday, July 12th, 6 - 7 p.m Pacific on NoLiesRadio.org (archived here a few hours after broadcast):
Maidhc Ó Cathail, one of our most prolific and insightful alternative journalists, never used to give radio interviews. A few months ago he decided to try one -- and discovered he was quite good at it! Today, we will begin with the strange case of Adam Gadahn, the son of an ADL bigwig turned al-Qaeda icon. (Has the FBI investigated possible ADL - al-Qaeda links?)
If it's ok with you, I'd like to talk about my latest article, "Adam Get Their Guns," in the first half hour. In the second hour, perhaps we could discuss some of the latest developments I've been writing about at The Passionate Attachment.

Truth Jihad Radio Monday 7/11/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.
(Note: My interview on Talk Radio Europe has been postponed till Thursday, 2 to 3 pm Central.)
1-2 pm: Eric Walberg, author of the brand-new book Postmodern Imperialism: Geopolitics and the Great Games reporting live from Cairo! Eric's new article Egypt vs IMF: Time to default? suggests that Egypt should "consider defaulting on what is called in financial jargon an 'odious debt', referring to the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation."
Walberg's Postmodern Imperialism: Geopolitics and the Great Games is the best introduction to geopolitics that I have seen. Walberg begins by citing such classic theoreticians as Mackinder, Haushofer and Ratzel in his description of how the imperial center drains the resources of its periphery, and how the earth's geography has dictated a struggle between Eurasian land powers (Russia, China, Germany, Islamdom ) and maritime rimlands (US, Britain, Japan) in which the latter are generally the aggressors -- though you wouldn't know that from their propaganda, which is probably all you ever see if you live in the West.
Walberg traces the evolution of Great Game I (pre-Russian revolution) into Great Game II (the Cold War era) and finally Great Game III (today's US-British-Israeli war for world conquest). Unlike the functional psychopaths who dominate in Political Science departments and policy-making positions, Walberg never loses sight of the almost unimaginable depravity of the whole enterprise, and the tidal wave of human suffering in which imperialism has nearly drowned the world.
What makes Walberg's book a real stand-out -- and what probably made it unpublishable by the major corporate houses -- is his honest analysis of the way the hardline Likudnik Zionists have seized power and dominated Great Game III. Though Walberg does not come right out and say that 9/11 was staged by the Mossad as a Zionist coup d'état, that is the unstated implication of the picture he paints, in which Zionist interests in destabilization and sheer mindless destruction of their Islamic enemies have trumped US interests in stabilizing and exploiting the Islamic rimlands. He hints at this in his introduction when he describes watching 9/11 on TV from Tashkent: "My immediate reaction was that their (the Twin Towers') collapse simply could not be the work of a band of poorly-trained Muslims orchestrated by someone in a cave in neighboring Afghanistan. Subsequent study has confirmed to me that the events of 2001 had far more to do with US imperialism --and Israel--than Islam." (p. 16)
Walberg's exemplary honesty extends to his discussion of the role of Jewish financiers in the creation of the British-American empires, in which the real power resides with bankers, not governments, and the way those same financial powers have established the "postmodern imperialism" of Great Game III: "The importance of the financial world and its use as parapolitics to the game strategy in Great Game III...like the importance of the Rothschilds to the strategies of Great Games I and II, cannot be overestimated. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was initially viewed and continues to be seen by many as the program of an emancipated nineteenth century Jewish financial elite using Freemasonry as a vehicle to achieve world power. The worth of the Protocols is not assessed here. It is enough to trace the development of the politics of Zionism from attributable sources and to observe the moves it gives rise to." (p. 178). While the usual suspects will undoubted call him names, I think Walberg considerably understates the case. If, in fact, the Protocols were real, the actual, documented psychopathic viciousness and mendacity of Zionism would make their authors seem relatively benign by comparison.
Along the way, Walberg bravely voices the obvious but taboo answer to the question: Why in the world did the British, the world's greatest empire, give away Palestine to the Zionists? What was the quid-pro-quo? The answer, as everyone knows but as very few are brave enough to say out loud, is as follows:
"The promise of a Jewish state in Palestine was a direct result of Zionist lobbying of both the British and Germans as World War I dragged on. Jewish bankers were financing both sides in World War I. Rothschild and the Jewish Conjoint Foreign Committee (JCFC) lobbied the British government intensely during World War I to push for a commitment to a post-war Jewish state. As British fortunes ebbed, the JCFC assured Lord Robert Cecil that American Zionists would lobby for US entry into the war if the British were to promise a Jewish state in Palestine after the war."
In other words, the Zionists were responsible for the slaughter of the 117,465 Americans killed, and the 205,690 Americans wounded, in that utterly meaningless (for the US) war. Compared to the Zionist slaughter of Americans in World War I, the 1967 USS Liberty incident (34 killed, 170 wounded) and the Israeli-Zionist attacks on New York and Washington on 9/11/2001 (2,977 killed immediately, untold thousands wounded and killed by toxic dust, and more than 7,500 dead in the 9/11 wars) were small stuff.
Another potentially controversial bit of truth-telling is Walberg's discussion of the does-the-tail-wag-the-dog debates (p. 214 - 219). His conclusion is that yes, the Israeli tail does wag the American imperial dog, and more and more people are figuring this out. Walberg cites Anatole Lieven's argument that Israel offered the US strategic advantages during the Cold War, but has since become "a very serious strategic liability...This is not a case of the tail wagging the dog, but of the tail wagging the unfortunate dog around the room and banging its head against the ceiling." (p.218).
One of my favorite publishers, Margo Baldwin of Chelsea Green, told me during our radio interview that the biggest taboo in American publishing is criticism of Israel. I hope that the brave folks at Clarity Press continue to bust that taboo, and that Walberg's brilliant Postmodern Imperialism follows the path blazed by James Petras's The Power of Israel in the United States (which has now gone through seven printings) to become an underground bestseller.

Truth Jihad Radio Fri 7/8/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525.
1-2 pm With guest host Steven Vincent
2 -2:30 pm: Kevin interviews sociology professor James Petras about what's really happening in Greece. James Petras is one of the best-informed truth-telling voices in the USA and the author of a prolific output of critically important books and essays.
2:30 - 3 pm: Joshua Blakeney, award-winning Canadian 9/11 scholar, discusses where anti-Zionism fits into the left-right political paradigm, as well as his new series of videos, which he introduced as follows:
Dear Friends and Comrades,
Here is my latest You Tube series.
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdLf0KTCcTs
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DRxiXXauOj0&feature=channel_video_title
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHcOWb9ue5U
N.B. Someone has been copying and pasting my articles onto their blog and replacing words like Zionist or Israeli with "JEW" capitalized. If you come across articles written by me which include such language please search for the original document which will probably be published with Veterans Today, the Canadian Charger or Voltairenet.
This article is one which has been taken from VT and posted on blogs with ethnicized language inserted that I disapprove of and did not include in this original version: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/05/15/ending-legal-apartheid-in-the-age-of-impunity-and-superstition/
I have informed the blogger who has done this that I am not interested in ethnicity per se and prefer to scrutinize people's political ideologies and economic motives. Many Jews oppose Zionism and/or are 9/11 Truthers. The Likudnik cabal does not speak for all Jews. A third of the International Solidarity Movement are Jewish.
As a Marxist half my book collection is authored by scholars of Jewish ethnicity. I would have to be an odd Marxist to oppose Jewish people simply based on their ethnic orientation. But as an authentic Marxist I must oppose the capitalist class in its entirety and hence refuse to acquiesce when elites of Jewish ethnicity play the victim card to mask their support for genocides against Arabs and Muslims which are comparable to the genocides in 1930s and 1940s Europe.
I think the documentary record shows that Israel is becoming/has become a regional empire and, again, as a Marxist I must oppose all empires even if I have to be called a racist or anti-Semitic for doing so due to the Genocide Industry's successful portrayal of Israel as a state comprised of, and supported by, perennial victims.
It took about a century for the United States to begin to be widely understood to be an empire. My intention is to help us diagnose the rise of Israeli empire much quicker than it took to diagnose the U.S.'s orientation to the world so we can formulate strategies to resist it and help the inhabitants of the Middle East decolonize.
The balkanization of the Middle East is ongoing. Israel will rule its empire through indirect rule, as the British eventually did with much of its empire, and as the U.S. rules much of its empire today (e.g. Japan). The Middle East is being broken down based on the millet system of the Ottoman Empire. The Israeli regional empire will be one of ethnic polities being dictated to by a hegemonic Israel (e.g. Lebanon's and Iraq's sectarianism).
We must continue to resist. 9/11 Truth is one essential prerequisite for justice in the Middle East.

And don't miss second-hour guest James Kunstler's brilliant-as-usual 4th of July birthday card.
* * *
Listen to this show (Franklin Lamb, Muad'dib, James Kunstler)
Truth Jihad Radio Wed. 1/29/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525.
First hour: Franklin Lamb live from Tripoli, Libya...and Muad'Dib live from the UK! Franklin Lamb is the author of the widely-read article Countdown to Invasion: "Tripoli’s 3,200 neighborhoods, independently of the Libyan Armed Forces, are intensively preparing for the possibility that NATO forces or those they are seen as increasingly arming and directing, might invade..."
Also during the first hour, Muad'Dib, the director-producer of 7/7 Ripple Effect who was recently acquitted of "perverting the cause of justice" by a jury that saw his 7/7 truth film, will discuss the progress of the movement for 7/7 truth and justice, on the eve of tomorrow's sixth anniversary of the London bombings.
Second hour: James Kunstler, one of the most provocative writers of our time, makes his debut on Truth Jihad Radio! Kunstler is perhaps best-known for his book The Long Emergency: Surviving the Converging Catastrophes of the 21st Century. (See the Orion Magazine video here.) He has subsequently begun a series of well-received novels about life after the crash, including World Made by Hand and The Witch of Hebron. Whether or not you agree with everything he so acerbically says, Kunstler is a good read -- an accomplished prose stylist with a message that bites, in more ways than one. I anticipate a lively conversation!

Listen to this show
Tuesday, July 5th, 9 - 11 a.m Pacific on NoLiesRadio.org (archived here a few hours after broadcast):
Two-hour commercial-free special: Alan Sabrosky and Sen. Mike Gravel propose grassroots plans for 9/11 justice.
First hour: Alan Sabrosky, author of the new article Demystifying 9/11: Israel and the Tactics of Mistake, touts a grassroots outreach campaign targeting local veterans organizations. Details here.
Dr. Alan Sabrosky, Ph.D. University of Michigan, is the former Director of Studies of the Strategic Studies Institute of the US Army War College.
Second hour: Sen. Mike Gravel, announcing the brand-new citizens' 9/11 commission campaign!
(Background on Sen. Gravel here.)
"The 9/11 truth movement's next step must be an actionable plan for change--a plan to pass laws that will create a powerful new investigation."
Senator Mike Gravel
Announcing: the citizens' 9/11 Commission Campaign
Dear fellow citizen: An activist organization recently founded and led by former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel (D-Alaska, 1969-1981), and endorsed by many leading Americans (see below), is exploring the feasibility of filing ballot propositions in several states (Oregon, Massachusetts, and others). When passed, this legislation would create a new, independent, citizen-led 9/11 commission. Such a result would be the worthy culmination of a decade of public education by the courageous 9/11 truth movement.
This powerful new investigative commission would be:
(1) funded by the citizens (as mandated by the initiative law)
(2) free of undue governmental interference
(3) vested with subpoena power and the ability to take testimony under oath
(4) legally linked to other states (and localities) that pass "sister" initiatives

Truth Jihad Radio Fri. 7/1/11, 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: Co-host Peymon Mottahedeh and very special guest.
Second hour: Kevin Barrett hosts William Engdahl, author of the critically-important brand-new article Getting Used to Life Without Food: Wall Street, BP, bio-ethanol and the death of millions. It begins:
"My late grandfather, a man of sturdy Norwegian-American farm stock, who later became a newspaper editor and political activist during the First World War, used to say, 'A man can get used to pretty much anything with time, except dying...and even that with some practice.' Well, as fate has it, it seems we, the vast majority of the human race, are about to test that adage in regard to the availability of our daily bread itself..."
When greedheads engineer mass starvation to enhance their profits, it's long past time for heads to roll.
William Engdahl is the author of Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation and A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order.
