First hour with Richard Cook: Before Bill Clinton’s presidency (1993-2000) came Reagan’s Central America wars and his game of nuclear chicken with the Soviets, followed by G.H.W. Bush’s brutal Gulf War I. After Clinton left office, Cheney and Bush Jr. presided over 9/11 and the wars it was designed to trigger.
So were the Clinton years a golden age of relative peace and prosperity? That’s how some remember them. But Richard Cook, author of Our Country Then and Now, takes a different view. In his new review of Jeremy Kuzmarov’s Warmonger, Cook endorses Kuzmarov’s thesis that Clinton was not just a crooked Deep State asset, but the central figure in the USA’s turn from its criminally unnecessary Cold War (1948-1989) to its current and even more criminal war for perpetual unipolar global domination.
Second hour: Rafiq (Robert Sean Lewis) discusses his new novel Atan the Revolutionary, featuring a protagonist with an Inuit shaman spirit ally who helps him push back against the bankster-dominated Deep State. Atan the Revolutionary begins with grippingly convincing descriptions of an Inuit settlement in Northern Canada, then moves on to British Columbia, New York, Mexico, India, and Washington DC—a journey through spiritual and political landscapes shaped by the clash between indigenous wisdom and the evil of the world-devouring wetikos.
Atan the Revolutionary explores the hidden spiritual battles behind the daily headlines, showcasing the author’s preference for indigenous immanence over cosmopolitan transcendence.
“A pledge to defund the federal government?”
“Yeah, defund the feds and you defund the military.”
“It won’t work.”
“Because people are cowards. They’re terrified of the IRS kicking in their door. Or the FBI. You haven’t seen what goes on now. They won’t do it.”
“Then we have to make them fearless.” “How do you do that?”
“You wake them up to spirit.”
