Second hour: 9/11 researcher and social credit advocate Dick Eastman, whose analysis of the Pentagon attack was a source for David Ray Griffin‘s The New Pearl Harbor (while anticipating and supporting the work of CIT and Barbara Honegger).
“Barbara Honegger has proven the false-flag, inside-job, provocateur, and false-victimhood establishing nature of the attack on the Pentagon. Her findings are as conclusive — if not more so — than my own — yet she is one of the investigators that ‘Big Truth’ investigators avoid interviewing or featuring in documentaries, books or organized public forums. The best people in any field — detective work, government, social science, history — are always the ones that the big-mouths and the Big Truth organizers are directing you away from.” – Dick Eastman

From Peter Herbert’s emails:
My third book, Predator Nation (late Spring 2011), is more complex than Mortgaged and Armed (July 4, 2010) and The Collapse of Home Prices and the Foreclosure Crisis (late Winter 2011). Predator Nation is financial and economic history and ties together the 1930s and 1940s with the present. The opening and concluding chapters are book ends that tie everything together and support my thesis – the strategic aspects of the financial sector’s war and the corporation as the fifth column within the nation.
What is a sociopath? Someone with no feelings and incapable of an apology. Read the class action claims. Pick any business sector. It’s the same. Almost always, there’s no admission of wrongdoing. “Tell me, Clarice—have the lambs stopped screaming?”—Hannibal Lecter, Silence of the Lambs
…My areas of comfort and expertise are the Federalist Papers and the Constitution, mortgages, foreclosures, regulation, fraud, predation, class action claims, disinformation in the media, the corporation as sociopath, economics, and legislative malfeasance. I’ve read the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. There were no accidents or mistakes, never has been, never will be.
If Tea Party advocates understood the Federalist Papers and the Constitution, they would understand that elitist and mercantile interests usurped the states and individuals. They would understand that Watters v. Wachovia used preemption to crush the states and consumer groups and permitted nationally chartered banks the continued right prey on the vulnerable with no state recourse.
Financial capitalism, not capitalism, is the root of all the evils in America today. Financial capitalism creates and thrives on a synthetic economy. Real capitalism and a real cash based economy may have a slower economic growth, but stability is better than boom and bust. Only the debt-based, synthetic economies of the world are in trouble. Leave the 27 nations that make up the G-20, and visit the country side and small towns. Life is quite good. It’s cash based. The material standard of living is lower, but the quality of life appears to be higher. Plenty of pregnant women, which is a signs of confidence in the future.
The current discussions of an asset backed currency are no different from the ones at the turn of the last century with William Jennings Bryan. Fiat money, contrary to what most believe, is not an intrinsic evil. The Roman Empire lasted 1,000 years on fiat money. What’s the difference between then and now? The moral character of our leaders – they are worse than the “depraved” Romans. We are doing something similar to what the Byzantines did. The Byzantines required payment in solid gold, but paid out in gold plated coins. The modern day equivalent is what we are now doing with our monetary policy and low rates in order to export our depression. We are repaying Japan and China with dollars that are worth less than the dollars they purchased. This is a sophisticated fraud that masquerades behind the high sounding phrase of “monetary policy.” We came off the Bretton Woods international gold standard, because we were over the credit limit due to the cost of the Vietnam War. If you want to blame anyone for America being the hammer of the earth, blame Japan, China, and the Arab world for funding these wars by purchasing U.S. Treasuries. An “elastic” currency, or fiat money, permits the government to become stupid drunk with money for wars and programs even when the tax revenues are not there. This translates into a devaluation of the currency – inflation that has nothing to do with supply and demand as taught in the academic text books. Be ye forewarned – a gold standard only benefits the affluent with assets, not the struggling masses. But, a gold standard, or any standard, tethers fiscal spending and protects the value of a currency so that it can serve as a store house of value for labor, goods, and service.
