Podcast. Gun-walking, CIA rendition, Obama speech

Last night’s podcast started with the growing Gun-walking scandal, where the US Attorney General’s Office in Phoenix allowed at least 1400 weapons and parts for hundreds of grenades to pass from the US to Mexico. Multiple federal agencies may have been involved. The story still isn’t getting the attention that it should. After all, a Border Patrol agent was murdered on US land and a weapon found nearby was one of the guns they allowed to be smuggled to the cartels.

The interests of CIA and JSOC seem to be merging. CIA now spends considerable time running military operations. So, just who is in charge. And why does the US consistently support such thuggish operations?

Obama’s job speech. Steve summed it up well, “soaring rhetoric and wishful thinking.” 56% of it is tax cuts, with comparatively minor sums for rebuilding our infrastructure. Plus, it all must be offset by cuts elsewhere. This will do little if anything to create new jobs. Plus, there was no mention of mortgage relief, or of the enormous amounts of toxic slop that the TBTF banks have been allowed to carry on their books. The root causes of our financial collapse were not even mentioned nor were the trillions Obama has sent to the banksters.

Podcast tonight. Obama job speech, Republican debate, CIA and Libya

Did Obama’s jobs speech have real substance? If he proposed something, will he actually fight for it?

Did Republicans discuss genuine issues or was it just a photo op?Is there a front runner?

And of course the CIA was busy being pals with Gadaffi and sending prisoners to Libya to be tortured and killed.

Polizeros podcast. Renewable energy problems, too much war

This show ranged all over! Topics included:

Solyndra bankruptcy. It will lead to loan guarantees and tax credits for renewable energy being cut and this could well disrupt plans for new grid-scale solar and wind projects. But $537 million got burned through in a year. Republicans want an investigation. As should we all.

The brouhaha over Obama’s jobs speech. Does the chattering political class realize how inane their faux disagreement sounds? Keith, who lives in DC, wondered briefly if he was the crazy one, listening to them apparently sanely discussing such idiocy and whether the US should have more wars. No, he’s not the crazy one, we reassured him.

Think tanks don’t question deeply because their funding and thus their jobs is dependent on corporate funding as well as access to and patronage from whomever is in power. Ditto for mainstream media. If they ask really tough questions they lose their press pass and access.

Counterinsurgency (COIN) should be done before it’s needed, not when the insurgents are shooting at you. But we’ve militarized COIN, and this hurts us badly.

Rather than trillions for war, with accompanying huge waste and corruptions, that money could have rebuilt our electrical grid and provided us with a fast, stable internet. We need to focus on this country first and not on empire building abroad, as much as Dick Cheney would like to continue bankrupting the country so we can slaugher more people and make more enemies.

Texas community college teaches new students that Columbus wasn’t the first European here. Shouldn’t this have been taught in fifth grade?

Polizeros podcast. Libya, Bank of America, fracking and earthquakes


Topics last night included:

Triumphalist liberals proclaim mission accomplished in Libya even as battles still continue in Tripoli and the National Transitional Council draws up a constitution for a strict Islamist state under sharia law. And then there’s the problem of 1000x more loose weapons than under Saddam. Libya is nowhere near being stable much less having a functioning government.

Bank of America teeters badly as Warren Buffett loans them $5 billion at steep rates when they could have borrowed elsewhere much cheaper. They choose his loan because it implies his support. But BofA has $100-200 billion of toxic slop on their books, so $5 billion is just chump change. The Obama Administration changed the accounting rules for big banks so they don’t have to mark-to-market. Until this deception is stopped, the pretend-and-extend charade will continue – until it no longer can.

Fracking has been decisively linked to earthquakes in many areas. When it was banned, earthquakes decreased. Imagine that. There’s been quite a lot of fracking in Virginia. The earthquake was no coincidence.

Polizeros podcast tonight. Libya, financial crisis, Irene, fracking

Libya: Assuming the rebels take Tripoli, what comes next? Let’s not forget Dubya’s “mission accomplished” statement on the aircraft carrier when in fact, not much had been accomplished at all.

Financial crisis: BofA is in dire shape as are some countries. Bailing out the big banks has made things worse, not better.

Hurricane Irene: She could be a monster. And was fracking at least partly responsible for the Virginia earthquake?

Democrats attack lefties. Ron Paul. Polizeros podcast

We had another wide-ranging, fun podcast last night (and the echo sound problem is gone.)

Among the topics:

We pondered why high-level Obama campaign staffers are attacking the “firebagger liberal blogosphere” while the California Democratic Party purges their progressive caucus for daring to suggest there be a primary challenge to Obama. How very Stalinist of the California Democrats. And self-defeating, especially considering the progressive caucus is their biggest caucus. But that never stopped the Left from having circular firing squads. The Right no doubt has them too, but generally behind closed doors.

While these attacks against the Left do at least show that establishment Democrats are indeed paying attention to us, the problem comes when progressives conflate being on the left with the Democratic Party and assume they must work within the party to achieve change. Good luck with that. By the time they attain a position of real power in the Democratic Party, the inevitable compromises, corruption disguised as contributions, and lack of any real progressive platform within the party will have rendered them harmless and compliant. The Democratic Party cannot be reformed. The rot is too deep. That’s why starting a third-party is a better way, even if it take years to gain a presidency.

Ron Paul isn’t telegenic and doesn’t have that charisma thing, but he is a genuine frontrunner do, even as the mainstream media studiously ignores him. Well, he’s opposed the wars since they started and thinks the Fed as it exists now is evil. That makes him genuinely dangerous to the banksters, which might account for the media blackout, so instead he gets labelled as a crank.

This and more. Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio or on iTunes.
