Keiser Report 110: United States and the [Curious Case of the] Deathly Deficit

This time, Max and Stacy talk about the scandals of the US deficit ceiling insanity defense and about the US diplomats acting as a Boeing sales force. We read comments on a 'progressive' website that sees nothing insane in the US dollar and a 14 trillion dollar deficit but mocks the calls for a return to a gold and silver standard as a wacky idea. In the second half, Max talks to J.S. Kim about game theory and gold standards.

spook,

Again, what makes a "progressive" cannot be left up to just what they say they are. You have many posts here talking about Wikileaks and most all of them, Max disagrees with this, claim that it is something other than what it claims about itself. Where Wikileaks and its defenders say it is a force to fight government secrecy and the agenda of U.S. oligarchs, these critics say that it is ...instead...a false flag operation put out by U.S. and Israeli intelligence operatives.

So, I think one could say the same thing about "progressives."

But, we have heard this claim made about "progressives" way back when people said some of the most high profile "progressives" couldn't be trusted because they were "gatekeepers of the left" created by funding operations and other front groups for American and Israeli intelligence operatives.

I think it's"operation Mockingbird" which was an FBI plan to infiltrate and undermine peace and justice and civil rights groups in the U.S.

So,

we have been told for a long time that we can't trust the left because what they say is possibly a false flag effort to manipulate us.

Steve,

Good points.

If you look at people whom we might call "real progressives", we find that 99.9% of them do not get any significant mainstream media coverage. Many are misrepresented.

To get ahead you must either have another (elitist) agenda or someway of being controlled (skeletons in the closet) so you are forced to ditch all the campaign promises made to the public.

Think about Cynthia McKinney or Robert Kennedy Jr (to a lesser extent), as people who are real progressives and the attention they receive. They get scant coverage often being misrepresented.

Most so called progressives that gain media attention are backed by powerful interests. Those that are really independent and have media attention are usually deep sixed in the end ...

If you (the FBI/CIA/corporate-military special interests) can't run both sides of the debate then you've not doing your job !

Spook !
