Interview published 28 March 2015

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts (former US Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy) returns to the programme for an extended interview on the ongoing tensions between Washington and Moscow.
Drawing upon his extensive experience in government, academia and journalism, Dr. Roberts explains how Washington's current hostility towards Russia, with its demonisation of Vladimir Putin, is a bitter fruit of the neoconservative ideology of world hegemony that came to dominate US centres of power from the early 1990s onwards. Assessing the geopolitical landscape with an eye to historical, economic and political realities, Dr. Roberts judges there to be only two hopes for the world to avert nuclear Armageddon: a Europe decisively resistant to Washington diktat, or economic collapse of the US empire itself.
We also discuss the murder of Boris Nemtsov, prospects for Washington-agitated colour revolutions in Central Asia/Caucasus, MH17 and the growth of the police state in the US.
I don’t know if you’re aware or not, but Sarah Van Auken, the daughter of famous “Jersey Girl” Lorie Van Auken, has written a play called “This Is Not About 9/11.” I saw it the first time it was shown in Philadelphia, and I laughed, I got angry, and I cried. There is some “truth telling” in the play. Overall, it’s really a fantastic play and something everybody should see if they can.
It’s only showing in New York City, but she and the rest of her crew could use help promoting it. They are doing their best to make it a monthly affair.
Here is the website for the H.E.A.T. Theater Company, which was started by Sarah and friends.
Here are some promotional videos I made for her play:
Here is a news segment about the play:
Here is a review of the play:
Ray McGovern leads the “Speaking Truth to Power” section of Tell the Word, an expression of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in inner-city Washington. A former co-director of the Servant Leadership School (1998-2004), he has been teaching there for 15 years.
Ray came from his native New York to Washington in the early Sixties as an Army infantry/intelligence officer and then served as a CIA analyst from the administration of John F. Kennedy to that of George H. W. Bush. Ray’s duties included chairing National Intelligence Estimates and preparing the President’s Daily Brief, which he briefed one-on-one to President Ronald Reagan’s most senior national security advisers from 1981 to 1985.
This summer will mark the ninth anniversary of the Journal of 9/11 Studies. In that time, my co-editors and I have published over 150 peer-reviewed articles and letters addressing various aspects of the 9/11 crimes. Although it can be hard, thankless work, the job of co-editor has also been rewarding and I’ve learned a great deal.
Through publishing articles in mainstream journals, I’ve learned that our peer-review process is at least as rigorous as that of others. At our Journal, submissions often fail to pass the editor’s initial assessment and are never reviewed. Of the remainder, dozens have failed to make it through the peer-review process to become published. It’s a disappointment when that happens but it’s important that whatever we publish lives up to certain standards. The end result is a treasure trove of reliable research, freely available on the web.
For example, here are six articles and two letters that should be widely read.
There is an urgent need to respond to Prime Minister Harper's rushed "anti-terrorism" legislation as it will strip the liberties of countless Canadians. The following presentation by A. Zuberi, Director of the award-winning documentary 9/11 in the Academic Community , addresses this important issue confronting Canadians at the University of Saskatchewan.
Saying No to Bill C-51: Questioning the State as the Provider of Security
February 6, 2015 • Page Views: 22,654+
"This is one of those very interesting scenarios when the elephant in the room basically started going to the bathroom and no one could any longer ignore its presence, but, people kept ignoring it. It seems to be a combination of mental illness and basic fear that is causing this intentional mass ignorance of one of the most blaring and significant issues of our time. And remember, this isn't about claiming to know exactly what happened on 9/11, it is about everyone agreeing that we need a new investigation immediately and a significant amount of material needs to be declassified.
Look at this situation, the FORMER TECHNICAL DIRECTOR OF THE NSA AT THE TIME OF 9/11 IS ASKING FOR A NEW INVESTIGATION AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS IGNORING IT EXCEPT FOR A HANDFUL OF FEARLESS ALTERNATIVE MEDIA OUTLETS. A figure of his stature and position cannot be ignored. He's possibly the most credible NSA whistleblower on the planet, and he's not even wanted for detainment by the US government. Even they respect him!
I thought the title might attract your attention, but it's true - I have experienced going downhill physically so VERY fast, that I felt like I was going to die. Sharp pains in muscles and joints, especially shoulders and knees; severe chills; diarrhea and nausea; fever; falling asleep while driving, sitting, even while eating. Great difficulty standing up from a sitting position due to pain and worsening weakness. Severe headaches. From my journal record for November 2013: "Pain was great in November and numbness in both hands."
I totally lost feeling in three fingers right hand (which would not close for months). Also from my journal, "22 January , soreness in joints extending more into left thumb and fingers. Getting progressively worse."
And the doctors - five different doctors -- could not figure out what was wrong with me. Examinations, blood tests and an expensive MRI... nothing definite. Take lots of Alleve, they said.
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the business model of the war on terror ... in the second half, Max interviews former CIA agent and open source advocate, Robert David Steele, about false flags and moral hazard.
Great interview. More about Mr. Steele's project

Three Judges “Astonished” At Now Seeing The Collapse of Building 7 (14 years later)
March 15, 2015 by Dalia Mae 47 Comments
In the interview above, after the court case, Harrit says,
“We got the opportunity, for once, to present a video of World Trade Centre 7 collapsing, in court, … at that time I recognised a state of astonishment among the three judges…. I understand, as usual, that none of them had heard or seen the collapse of Building 7 before.”
“I’m just an ordinary, very ordinary retired scientist from the University of Copenhagen who just can’t stand (when) the fundamental laws of Galileo and Sir Isaac Newton are not respected in the public domain.”
The former Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Fraser, was also unaware that a third building had collapsed on September 11, 2001 (when I interviewed him last year). Regardless of the outcome of this libel case, the collapse of this Building 7 has been deliberatedly “kept” from the public.
An excellent interview of Dr. Daniele Ganser:
In this interview from April 2014, Daniele Ganser addresses False Flag Operations within the latest 100 years, mainly carried out by the US, the Empire of recent time. Dr. Ganser points out that the one thing fueling wars and conflicts is resources, oil first and foremost. Through wars the powers that be have maintained a development where the Cold War is back in it's "hottest" form. The means have been like the ones used by Goebbels in the Nazi Reich. Dr. Ganser interviewed by journalist Tommy Hansen.
9/11 Commissioners Admit They Never Got the Full Story
The 9/11 Commissioners publicly expressed anger at cover ups and obstructions of justice by the government into a real 9/11 investigation:
- 9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton says “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”, that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, and that the 9/11 debate should continue
- The 9/11 Commission chair said the Commission was “set up to fail”
- The Commission’s co-chairs said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”
- 9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that “There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn’t have access . . . .”
- 9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer said “We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting”
- 9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: “It is a national scandal”; “This investigation is now compromised”; and “One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”. When asked in 2009 if he thought there should be another 9/11 commission, Cleland responded: “There should be about fifteen 9/11 commissions”
"Hey Anderson (CNN) . . . what about the real story? How come buildings only fall at free fall on 9/11?"
Latest High-Rise Fire Reveals More Public Skepticism of Official 9/11 Story
By Robert McGee
A high-rise building catches fire in a major city.
All occupants are evacuated safely. Fire crews arrive and begin dousing the blaze.
Fanned by high winds, the flames spread over some 15 floors above and below the 50th floor, where the fire started from an unknown cause. Shattered glass and debris from the exterior of the building fall in fireballs to the ground.
In just over two hours, firefighters extinguish the fire, and . . . yes, the steel-framed structure remains intact.
