Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviewed former assistant US Treasury Secretary under President Reagan, former Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal and distinguished academic and author, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/. Paul also served on many boards of directors in the private sector.
During this 40 minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Paul about the US' foreign policy and if it got more aggressive after the Soviet Union collapsed.
Dr. Roberts talks about the Wolfowitz Doctrine from the Neo-Cons and how US foreign policy has become even more aggressive towards war and expansion after the Soviet Union collapsed.
Jason and Dr. Roberts discuss the military industrial complex and Dr. Roberts talks about how and why the Soviet Union fell.
Dr. Roberts says production managers in the Soviet Union focused on beating quotas but they did not produce anything consumers wanted, there was enormous misallocation of capital and resources there and there were not any reliable pricing mechanisms for businesses and entrepreneurs to produce goods and services consumers wanted.
Next, Jason asks Paul about what's going on in the real economy in the US and if there's inflation.
Dr. Roberts talks about all the inflation in food, energy, etc and how the CPI was changed by politicians so cost of living adjustments (COLA) would not have to be paid out to more social security recipients.
Jason and Dr. Roberts talk about the ways the BLS continues to change the CPI and under report inflation using hedonics.
Dr. Roberts also talks about how the US economy is not creating really any full time high paying jobs. Dr. Roberts talks about offshoring/outsourcing and why he thinks the US is quickly becoming a 2rd world economy while asset bubbles are created with fiat money.
Jason and Dr. Roberts discuss restaurants and retails stores closing and why that means the economy is not recovering. Paul says the US consumer lacks any savings or discretionary income to spend money.
Finally, to wrap up the interview, Jason asks Dr. Roberts how long he thinks this asset price inflation, QE, backdoor bailouts, currency wars and the real economy in the US contracting can last while politicians, Wall St and large corporations are pure rent seekers and maintain the narrative in the mainstream media that the economy continues to improve.

In the West, politicians and journalists of all stripes have referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin as a "thug", a "tyrant", a "murderer", a "Communist", a "Nazi", the next "Hitler" and more.
But amongst the Russian people, his popularity rating has reached levels as high as 85%. There is even a very popular hit 'disco' song about him - 'A Man Like Putin'.
So, who's right? Why such hatred for Vladimir Putin? Is it justified? Or has Putin been targeted merely for standing up the US-EU Axis of Internationalism?
This interview takes you through 'crash course' journey from Russia's Medieval founding, through the days of the Czars, through the Communist Revolution and bloody Civil War, through Stalin & World War II, through the Cold War, through the Soviet collapse, through the Yeltsin disaster, and finally the Putin-led rebirth of the Russian nation.
It is one of the "greatest stories never told", and will shed badly needed light on the new Russia, its dynamic leader, the dark forces aiming to bring about its demise, and maybe even World War III.
What an amazing man, he said it all in 2 minutes. There is hope for the world after all, if every person was like him the earth would be perfect.
I'm not sure it get any Clearer, Than This! Obama Lifts the ban on Libyans, That was put in place to stop another 911, As 11 Libyan Jetliners Go Missing! HUGE RED FLAG! Remember the aftermath of 9/11 when investigators made the chilling discovery that American flight instructors had unwittingly taught the Arab hijackers how to fly jumbo jets like the ones they plowed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, killing some 3,000 innocents? And how one of the dumber hijackers had raised suspicions, letting slip that he had no intention of seeking a pilot's license? But, you might not be surprised to learn, Washington wasn't really into taking seriously any alarms from unimportant places like Minnesota? Turns out, President Reagan worried about terrorist hijackers using airplanes as weapons way back in 1983. He banned Libyans from taking flight lessons or nuclear studies in the United States. Now, believe it or not, President Obama is lifting that ban because, aides say, post-Gaddafi Libya and its relations with the United States are "normalized."
On this Thursday, September 4 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex breaks down the lingering ISIS threat at the southern US border as United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron aligns himself with President Obama in suggesting possible air strikes in Syria to stop the advance of western-backed ISIS jihadists. Then, Alex will break down the 2014 NATO summit in Wales where world leaders plot their next moves in Ukraine and Syria as an arrested journalist at the event describes it as an "open air prison." Alex is joined by investigative reporter Jon Rappoport to discuss the developing situation with the CDC whistleblower who leaked a 2004 study that proves a connection between the MMR vaccine and autism. Alex will also take your calls on this worldwide broadcast.
Expect inflation to climb sharply, sending gold higher, but this time, officials hands will be tied and unable to fight back with higher rates.
Gerald is concerned by another war, the battle against chronic diseases such as the alarming trend of Type 2 diabetes and other lifestyle related illnesses.
The good news - by simply removing refined foods and glucose spiking items from the diet, most chronic diseases are manageable and sometimes reversible.
The editor of the Trends Journal thinks that a Cold War 2.0 is the most likely outcome of the Ukraine / Russia ordeal - the ideal diversion by the PTB to take attention away from the imploding global economy. He expects inflation to rise sharply similar to the 1970's, but this time, officials hands will be tied, unable to combat higher prices with interest rates, due to the fragile nature of the nascent economic-recovery. Gerald is concerned by another war, the battle against chronic diseases such as the growing trend of Type 2 diabetes and other lifestyle related illnesses. The root cause of virtually all chronic disease is inflammation, primarily from high glucose levels. Most studies indicate that a diet rich in processed food is linked closely to chronic tooth decay and gum disease both inflammation based diseases. Empirical / experimental evidence suggests a close correlation between exists between diet and most other chronic diseases. The good news is that by simply removing refined foods and glucose spiking foods from the diet, insulin resistance is reduced making most illnesses manageable and even reversible. Put succinctly, by adhering to the prescription of functional medicine practitioners, like Dr. Mark Hyman, the root cause of most chronic illness can be eliminated by changing eating habits and unsound dietary choices.
This guy has a resume that reads more like a James Bond film script than that of a journalist with a teaching background. He works for USAID in 2009 in Iraq, then he finds himself kidnapped in Libya two years later by Gaddafi forces. Then, after all of this, he finds himself captured in Syria, only to be beheaded two years later by ISIS (the terror organization funded by our ally Saudi Arabia).
While all these assignments to areas of intense geopolitical interest to the U.S., as well as his being captured twice in two years is interesting in its own right, what is particularly interesting is his connection to USAID. Why? Because the so-called human rights organization has been exposed as an intelligence front on several occasions within the past year alone.

This Is A False Flag Alert Happening Now Emergency Wake Up Alert: The Money Junkies Are About To Murder Millions (Money Junkies = Central Bankers) The tanks in the Ukraine are T-72 tanks sold to the Ukraine by Hungary. Kiev bought 58 of them earlier this month. These tanks are being used to make it look like Russia is invading. Most likely the tanks have been painted. Spread this now, make it go viral. We will all be affected, as this will most likely turn nuclear if WWIII breaks out. This is a war between banking systems!
This event is still unfolding and the news agencies are not yet all singing off the same song-sheet. Its these early stages that can be the key to unlocking potential false flags. Im not saying there is any false flag aspect to this as its far too early, but im urging people to record everything they say so we can point out story changes later on. So far we are being told there is NO TERRORIST LINK - but this may change. The powers that be will be sitting right now working out how not to leg a good crisis go to waste. Stay tuned, more to follow
A man has been arrested after a woman was found beheaded in a back garden in north London, according to reports. The victim was found at an address in Nightingale Road, Edmonton just after 1pm. Scotland Yard gave few details but said that a man is in custody. The force said: "Police were called to an address in Nightingale Road at 13.07pm today to reports of a stabbing incident.
The recent beheading of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State sparked shock and outrage. And with the images spreading worldwide, the group seems to be achieving its goal. What’s driving the ideology and rise of one of the world’s most notorious terrorist organizations, and will its Caliphate ever be able to coexist peacefully with the community of nations? Oksana is joined by Anjem Choudary, British imam and lawyer, to reflect on these issues.
Putin is just a pawn in all of this, as much as Obama. No matter how they play it out through the media, they are nothing more than actor puppets, acting out their character for the same script. They want a World War. Putin will be the one that will be pushed to make the first strike and when that happens, everything will crumble. Putin isn't the good guy, coming in and taking out the bad guy. He will just be fulfilling his character's duties.
As fighting between the army and Russian-backed rebels rages in eastern Ukraine, preparations are under way near its western border for a joint military exercise this month with more than 1,000 troops from the United States and its allies.
The decision to go ahead with the Rapid Trident exercise Sept. 16-26 is seen as a sign of the commitment of NATO states to support non-NATO member Ukraine while stopping well short of military intervention in the conflict.
The annual exercise, to take place in the Yavoriv training center near Ukraine's border with Poland, was initially scheduled for July, but was put back because early planning was disrupted by the crisis in the eastern part of the country.
"At the moment, we are still planning for (the exercise) to go ahead," U.S. Navy Captain Gregory Hicks, spokesman for the U.S. Army's European Command said on Tuesday. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/0...

Cheryl Chumley, Washington Times writer and author of "Police State USA: How Orwell's Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality" discusses how basic civil liberties are under threat by the militarization of the police.
Cheryl Chumley argues that the government's desire to monitor and control the public is greater now than ever before. Traffic light cameras, drone monitoring, laws against large sodas, NSA collection of information on Americans and more amounts to a police state that must be rolled back. She talks with the former White House Chief Information Officer Theresa Payton.

“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
“If you are an ordinary person, then you can prepare yourself for war by moving to the countryside and building a farm, but you must take guns with you, as the hordes of starving will be roaming. Also, even though the elite will have their safe havens and specialist shelters, they must be just as careful during the war as the ordinary civilians, because their shelters can still be compromised.”

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
