“Whatever may be the case during election after election Americans consistently vote for less war and each time around they get more wars.” ~ The Saker, “Living with ZOG (Zionist Occupation Government) :-)”
“Not only did the US military complex (MIC) bloat beyond any reasonable size, it also cloaked itself in so many layers of secrecy that massive corruption became inevitable. And when I speak of “massive corruption, I am not talking about millions but billions or even trillions. How? Simple – the Pentagon claimed it did not have the accounting tools needed to properly account for the missing money and that money was therefore not really “missing.” Another trick – no bid contracts. Or contracts which cover all the private contractor’s costs, no matter how high or ridiculous. Desert Storm was a bonanza for the MIC, as was 911 and the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). Billions of dollars got printed out of thin air, distributed (mostly under the cover of national security), hidden (secrecy) and stolen (by everybody in this entire food chain).” ~ The Saker, “The Empire Should be Placed on Suicide Watch”
By Catherine Austin Fitts
This week on The Solari Report, The Saker joins me on our quarterly Emerging Multipolar World to discuss his new book The Essential Saker II: Civilizational Choices and Geopolitics: The Russian challenge to the Hegemony of the AngloZionist Empire.
We have a long list of topics to discuss:
I. Growing power of the Neocons and their relationship to the Israeli and war lobbies.
II. FISA Memo distraction and the inability of the Washington establishment to find any evidence that the Russians interfered with the US elections.
III. Purges in Hollywood and the media: are the US elites fighting each other and, if yes, why?
I. New national defense strategies published by President Trump and Secretary Mattis – and what they mean to the balance of power between the US, Russia, China and, in President Trump’s words in the State of the Union, ” anyone else.” The impact of proposed increases in the defense budget – in the State of the Union President Trump embraced a $1.5 trillion upgrade of the nuclear arsenal and Secretary Mattis proposed a $50 billion increase in his subsequent speech at the Greenbriar retreat on top of the $59 billion increase in the current defense authorization.
II. The war lobby makes money persuading nations to prepare for war. Can anyone really benefit from a war?
III. What’s ahead for US relations with Iran, North Korea and Russia.
I. Collapse of the US ‘plan D’ in the Syrian Kurdistan as a sign of a weakened Empire
II. Attacks on Russians in Syria and the downed SU-25: is Russia in trouble in Syria?
I. Political impact on the proposed latest US sanctions against Russian corporations and individuals
II. Presidential election in Russia – does it matter and why?
III. Risks of a fullscale Ukrainian attack on the Donbass this Spring/Summer
