Saving Planet, Saving Ourselves Part 3

Humanity is faced with its greatest challenges since it evolved on Earth 200,000 years ago.  Rapid climate change and the degradation and destruction of our environment. The Earth has entered a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene Age, and henceforth all atmospheric and geological changes in the near and long term future will have humanity's footprint on it. It is critical that people begin to understand what we are experiencing now with more frequent droughts, floods, wildfires and extreme weather conditions, and it what portends for the future.

Gary gives you an extra hour and plays a great video discussing The Clintons. Here is some info on the video and a link to finish the video if you like.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Clinton Chronicles: An Investigation into the Alleged Criminal Activities of Bill Clinton is a 1994 film that accused Bill Clinton of a range of crimes. The video, directed by conservative activist Patrick Matrisciana, was characterized by The Washington Post as a "bizarre and unsubstantiated documentary."

The New York Times reported that it was a poorly documented "hodgepodge of sometimes-crazed charges." It helped perpetuate a conspiracy theory known as the "Clinton Body Count" about a list of associates Clinton was purported to have had killed. The deaths listed in the film have largely been discredited due to deliberate bias, weak circumstantial evidence, and coincidence.

The film was produced by Citizens for Honest Government, a project of a Westminster, California organization named Creative Ministries Inc., partially funded by Larry Nichols, a long-time Clinton opponent, and distributed with help from the Rev. Jerry Falwell, who also appears in the film. Over 300,000 copies of the film were put into circulation.

To promote the film, Falwell aired an interview with Matrisciana, who was silhouetted to conceal his identity as he pretended to be a journalist who was afraid for his life. Matrisciana later acknowledged that he was not in any danger, but that the interview was staged for dramatic effect at Falwell's suggestion

CONVERSATIONS WITH REMARKABLE MINDS

 

The new economic hit men  and the new sophistication of economic aggression

For many years, primarily through the 1970s and 1980s, John Perkins was an economic hit man (EHM), a job to convince leaders of developing nations to accept economic conditions that benefit US private and government interests. He was a direct participant or witness to such dramatic modern events as the Saudi Arabian Money Laundering scandal, the fall of the Shah of Iran, the assassinations of Eucador’s and Panama’s  democratically elected presidents, and other government and corporate intrigues. John was a chief economist for a large international consulting firm advising the World Bank and IMF, the UN, Fortune 500 companies and many national governments. Since leaving his covert activities, John been a champion of indigenous spiritual cultures and environmental movements through his non profit projects Dream Change -- which has hosted educational events to help raise consciousness and inspire more sustainable ways of living --  and the Pachamama Alliance. After 911, John broke his silence with the publication of his international best seller that has just been fully revised and published as “The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”, to explain that rather than a corrupt specialized activity among select consulting and international construction firms in the past, the system of economic hit men has rather become more sophisticated, more devious, and more widespread, even through the halls of government, and is now intentionally bankrupting the US as it has done in the past with developing nations. His website is JohnPerkins.org  and  DreamChange.org
