First half-hour: Eric Walberg discusses his latest book review “The Boy Who Was Raised as a Girl” and expresses his dismay with the media’s moronic anti-Russia propaganda.
Second half-hour: Eric Zuesse nominates Douglas Macgregor!
From Eric Zuesse:
We need Douglas Macgregor for U.S. President.
Here is why:
Democrats, Republicans, and independents, all need this person in the U.S. White House. We are the American people; and he represents, more articulately than anybody else does, on the most urgent and important issue confronting the world, what all Americans — and all of the people in the world — need. That’s a fact. That need is a fact. How can it become implemented?
This need has become desperate. On March 13th, Fox News headlined “US senators dismiss ‘World War III’ worries, say US would dominate Russian troops”. Almost none of the 5,000+ reader-comments there cared much about the fact that WW III would destroy all life on this planet, and most of the readers were concerned only about whether ‘we’ would ‘win’ that war — a war that would utterly destroy the entire world. The American public no longer consider a war between the world’s nuclear superpowers (U.S. and Russia) to be fundamentally different from, and enormously more unacceptable than, any prior war. The massive fear of nuclear war in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis is gone, though nuclear war would be hundreds of times more destructive in 2022 than it would have been in 1962. The rabidly neoconservative American press has whipped up the international hatreds and blocked out the crucial facts in its international news-reporting, so as to produce America’s present misinformed and zombie-like public. This is idiocy on a massive scale, in our own nation, right now; and, so, America will have no public opinion restraining its leaders from destroying the entire planet in order to ‘save’ Ukraine — a previously unimaginable lunacy, but the reality today.
Only leadership such as Douglas Macgregor could provide would offer the type of leadership that might overcome this ugly present reality and transform America into a decent nation again — one that takes deadly seriously the deadliest of dangers, not only dangers to Americans, but dangers to the entire planet. America’s existing leadership is atrocious beyond anything in all of human history. We’ve not had the type of leadership that Macgregor can supply ever since at least the time of JFK, but the post-9/11 period has been especially nonchalant about the unacceptability of any WW III. For warfare, the atomic age brought with it a change of type, not ONLY a change of ITEM, but that basic fact has now been effectively forgotten in America, and this poses the greatest threat to the world in all of the world’s history — and this reality of Americans’ stunning ignorance and nonchalance about what a WW III would mean must change, and fast. Before nuclear weapons, there could have been any number of World Wars (superpower-conflicts); but, after the 1945 advent of nuclear weapons, there can be only one more World War, and it would begin the process that would soon end all life on this planet. Our nation’s leaders now are no longer restrained by the public about bringing it on. Shall we accept that?
Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s next book (soon to be published) will be AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change. It’s about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.
