“Kevin Barrett’s TRUTH JIHAD RADIO”
Paul Craig Roberts and James Petras: Is US empire collapsing?

Guests: Paul Craig Roberts and James Petras.

Paul Craig Roberts is a leading political economist who has taught at Stanford, Georgetown, and other universities.

In this interview, Dr. Roberts says America’s underlying economic crisis behind the shutdown debacle, on top of Obama’s failure to have his way with Syria, signals a collapse of the American empire. Future historians, he suggests, will say that this moment – the autumn of 2013 – was when it happened. The blame for the implosion of America (and the West) into a stinking morass of lies, corruption, and looting, he adds, falls largely on the shoulders of the neoconservatives – mendacious Israel-firsters whose utter amorality and unhinged extremism pushed the US over the cliff.

Considered by some “the father of Reaganomics” for helping develop supply-side approaches when he was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Dr. Roberts has been a regular columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and other publications. He has been inducted into the French Legion of Honor, among many other honors and awards, for his historic contributions to political economics. His new book is The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution of the West.

James Petras, like Paul Craig Roberts, is at the top of his academic field – in this case, sociology. And like Roberts, Petras agrees that the US empire has fallen on hard times:

“Obama’s rhetorical exercise in ‘peace talk’ at the United Nations General Assembly impressed few delegations and even fewer Americans: Far more eloquent are his five years of wars, military interventions, cyber-spying, drone murders, military coups and the merciless prosecution of patriotic truth tellers.” (-“Fifteen Minutes an American President“)

And like Paul Craig Roberts, James Petras agrees that the neocons (and the rest of the Zionist Power Configuration) have been a key factor in America’s decline.

James Petras is a Bartle Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghamton University. He is the author of more than 62 books published in 29 languages, and over 600 articles in professional journals. He is the author of many books including the groundbreaking Power of Israel in the United States and the new Imperialism and Capitalism in the Twenty-First Century. A System in Crisis.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
