TIDBIT: FEEDING THE OLIGARCHS: PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS ON THE PHILOSOPHY OF ...
October 13, 2012 / /
Hear hear...! I thought I'd share this one with you from Paul Craig Roberts, addressing the "lesser of two evils" philosophy that people have been using as a voting strategy for decades, and he does so in the context of the increasing backlash against American imperialism that is sweeping across South America:

I don’t care too much for Paul G. Roberts but I read some of his articles on rare occasions. (when I am trying very hard to re-invent the Wheel, ha, ha???)
It seems fascinating that Paul Craig Roberts is waxing lyrical on Oligarchs when his membership of the Council for National Policy must place him in regular contact with the most powerful of all oligarchs.
Pete Dale Scott (2007) described the Dallas based CNP as more powerful and influential than the CFR. The who is who in the CNP makes interesting reading and causes some cognitive dissonance when you realise that all is not what it seems. When you’ve grown tired of the circular arguments you heard over the last several years, research the CNP, some fresh new insights and some interesting links.

Completely off-topic, but SHOULD be of concern for all JPF supporters… I am using this forum (JPF — I hope you don’t mind) to reach out for support for GeorgeAnn Huges (thebyteshow dot com).
As any JPF true-follower knows, GeorgeAnn provides friendship as well as true support of JPF’s work on her THEBYTESHOW dot com website. Check out the JPF interviews there, if you have not already done so.
GeorgeAnn, for those who don’t already know, is a truly kind HEART-Spirit who provides yet another platform for spreading JPF’s work. GeorgeAnn does this at her own expense, and now finds herself facing a medical emergency — cataract surgery costing $4,800 which she does not have. One source of potential funding recommended by her surgeons did not come through (Knight’s Templar! LOL!) and she could use our help.
For everyone who has ever enjoyed the ever-so-subtle but enlightened interviews of GeorgeAnn and JPF, I urge you to visit her website and donate whatever you are guided to give. I can assure you that my donation was WELL ABOVE what my conscious mind would accept (!), so I hit the “click” button on her PayPal quickly, before I changed “my” mind!
GeorgeAnn is a TRUE PLANETARY RESOURCE who should be funded. Please search withing your heart and, if you have ever gotten benefit from her monthly interviews with our own Dr. Farrell, PUHLEEZE donate what your HighSelf suggests you give!
Better to HUMANS, like GeorgeAnn (and JPF) than the corporatocracy, I say…
Thank you. I know you will do THE RIGHT THING!
Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate, would win if all those disillusioned with the 2 party system cast their vote for him this fall. The wave of discontent, I believe is that large. Still some 4 out of 5 of those I meet along the way know nothing about him. The apathy in this nation is mind-blowing and that is why once again we will get just what we deserve.
There is another [just] Craig Roberts who is an interesting
person and a very interesting writer as he shares with
I spoke to him over the phone during
one holiday season a few years ago.
Being that I don’t have time to wade through the the full body of offerings from been-there-done-that what thing or things do you find most interesting about him?
He was a sniper with the Air Force and then the police.
Some years ago he went to Dallas, fully onboard
with the Oswald line;
until he examined the “Kill Zone”
[title to one of his books] as a [legal]
professional sniper and concluded that the shots
were impossible from there even with the best rifle.
There were a number of reasons, but the clincher
was a total inability to line up sniper’s nest
with place of target at the time.
He previously had, and continued to write other books,
both from personal experience and a new view of
government lies from further research.
His “Medusa File” is a compilation of some of that research.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts knows the score.
I like the saying, when it comes to the lesser of two evils:
You still get the evil and the lesser.
Not a good alternate choice, for a close.
Thanks for this. Good interview.
That’s a weekly show, On The Edge.
Steve Lendman’s Progressive News Hour is also good. Three shows weekly.
Tomorrow he has John McMurtry, he’s very good.
(usually avaiable on Monday/archived shows).
Thank you Robert.
Pleased that you listened. People at this site are great at sharing information.
To seperate the “wheat from the chaff” is the “tricky” part, or perhaps, even an art.
