In the month of February, fifteen former students of the for- profit Corinthian Colleges System declared they would no longer be paying off their sizable federal student loans. They see the Corinthian system as corrupt, making false promises and part of a predatory leding racket. This action sets the stage for a conversation about the Student debt crisis and the nature of money.Ellen Brown author, former civil litigation attorney and founder of the Public Banking Institute comes on in the first half hour. She explains how student debt is not only crippling the debt holders with unfair debt repyment obligations, it is used by money managers as a commodity not unlike the Subprime mortgages that infamously led to the financial meltdown of 2008. In the second half hour we hear a September 2011 speech given by San Francisco Bay Area-basedIndependent journalist and podcast producer Kellia Ramares-Watson. She goes further than Ellen BRown in suggesting that the money system not only has to be reformed but disbanded altogether.

Podcast cover

 On the Global Research News Hour this week, we spend the hour discussing the looming collapse scenarios facing the United States with Russian-American engineer Dmitry Orlov.

Orlov’s perspective on collapse is informed by his extended trips to his former homeland before and during its collapse.

Orlov believes and states that the former Soviet Union was set up to be resilient in the face of collapse. This, he believes is not the case in the US or Canada.

In this interview, Orlov also comments on the current situation with low oil prices, peak oil and its impact on agriculture, Russian moves in alignment with China, overtures toward the EU, the politics of austerity, the Ukraine Civil War as Anglo-Imperialist Departure Strategy, and much more.

Dmitry Orlov has written two books, Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Experience and American Prospects as well as the Five Stages of Collapse: Survivors’ Toolkit. Mr. Orlov is also the author of the blog cluborlov.com and is a much sought after geo-political analyst.

Rank #19: Nuclear Radiation and Geo-engineering: Two Threats to Life on Earth - 01.19.15

Podcast cover
Read more

Clear and Present Danger 

We’ve heard about Anthropogenic (human-generated) Climate Change, and less frequently the threat of a nuclear war between rival super powers as the biggest threats facing humanity and life on this planet.

There are however less talked about dangers which are just as pressing and demanding of attention. Seldom are these perils confronted in any serious way.

The first of these, that will be explored in this week’s Global Research News Hour radio programme, is the threat posed by nuclear radiation from the nuclear industry.

The Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear facility, which became crippled by an earthquake and tsunami almost four years ago, is estimated to have released over 25 million billion becquerels of Cesium-137 radiation into the ocean in just the four months following the disaster. [1] According to a major study, in the 14 weeks following the Fukushima meltdowns, radio-active fall-out that descended on North America resulted in 14,000 excess US deaths. [2]

There are dozens of other nuclear plants in the US and around the world that could likewise melt down as infrastructure breaks down. Nuclear radiation in the air, water, and food supply represent a clear and present threat to all life on this planet.

Another critical concern is the amount of toxic material being deliberately being inserted into the atmosphere, apparently with the aim of affecting climate.

courtesy: Geoengineeringwatch.org

Commonly referred to as ‘chemtrails,’ the release of reflective microscopic particles by aircraft in order to affect the amount of sunlight reaching the earth is having an impact not only on weather, but on human, plant and animal health.

These and other weather modification techniques have been not only contemplated, but in effect for decades, as is well documented. (see document above.)

Yet, discussion of these artificial climate control mechanisms is virtually absent from all mainstream around climate change. In fact, like counternarratives around the 9/11 attacks, ongoing geo-engineering programs through ‘chemtrailing’, solar radiation management, HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program ) and other mechanisms is commonly referred to as a ‘conspiracy theory’ in public discourse.

This week’s Global Research News Hour introduces these planetary perils with two outspoken, passionate and knowledgeable guests.

Mimi German is a self-described Earth Activist, with the grassroots group No Nukes Northwest, and is founder of Radcast.org which monitors radiation readings world-wide. She speaks to the nuclear question in the first half hour.

Dane Wigington has an extensive background in the field of solar energy, a licensed contractor and a former employee of Bechtel. The founder of the information site geoengineeringwatch.org, Wigington is convinced that geo-engineering is the number one threat facing humanity at present, and expands on his research in the second half hour.

Rank #20: GRNH 2014, Year in Review: The Islamic State, A New Bogeyman; Global Warfare, NATO Threatens Russia - 01.12.15

Podcast cover
Read more

The year 2014 was notable not only for the political crises that often dominated the headlines, but very often for the way in which these events were distorted by the mainstream media.

Events overtaking Ukraine were a particular case in point. While the Western Press blames Russian President Vladmir Putin for the instability and tragic loss of life in the Eastern Donbass region, it consistently ignores the role of the West in backing the forces that overthrew the democratically elected government, and even employed Neo-Nazi operatives in the coup and subsequent anti-coup resistance.

Likewise, inadequate coverage of a new bogeyman in the form of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has allowed political leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Harper to galvanize a confused and frightened public behind a neo-conservative program of military warfare and further erosions of our civil liberties.

Mainstream media generally works to foster agendas that serve elite purposes, and media plays a crucial role in providing the information and analysis that can help the public to determine responsible policies.

The Global Research News Hour and the Global Research website has tried to bring necessary critical perspectives during these historic times.

This week, on our first new radio broadcast of 2015, we provide a digest of some of the many stories we have covered over the previous year.

Includes contributions by Richard Sanders, Robin Philpot, Jon Rappoport, Yves Engler, Peter Dale Scott, James Petras, Henri Feron, Jacques Pauwels, Barrie Zwicker, Guy McPherson, Michel Chossudovsky, and Roger Annis.

Global Research News Hour - U.S. Campaign 2016: Searching for Democracy in a Broken System - 03.21.16

Podcast cover
Read more

Politics has been called a rigged game, with elites using money and
organizational resources to pull the puppet strings of most candidates
for high office. However, the entrance into the race for US president of
candidates Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump who both reject funding from
Wall Street threatens to challenge that truism.

This week’s Global Research News Hour attempts to cut through the
propaganda and jargon and assess what real options are out there for
making substantive and humane political change.

William Blum is a long-time critic of US foreign policy. He has authored five books including his most recent, America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy – The Truth About US Foreign Policy and Everything Else. He also publishes the “Anti-Empire Report” on his site www dot williamblum dot org.
In this interview, Blum outlines his reservations about Hillary Clinton
and Bernie Sanders, the problematic media coverage of the campaign, and
the astonishing view that Trump may actually be the less objectionable
in certain respects than both Sanders and Clinton.

Mark Robinowitz is publisher of oilempire dot us,
a political map to connect the dots.  He has been a writer, political
activist, ecological campaigner and permaculture practitioner for over
three decades.  He is also author of the forthcoming Peak Choice:
cooperation or collapse, an uncensored guide to Earth, energy and money.
In this interview, Robinowitz equates the choice between the Democrats
and the Republicans to one between death by lethal injection and death
by the electric chair. He outlines the mechanisms employed to stop any
threat to the establishment from ever becoming elected president. He
also explains how the energy and economic decline is becoming reflected
in the politics of the Trump campaign.

They see the Corinthian system as corrupt, making false promises and part of a predatory leding racket. This action sets the stage for a conversation about the Student debt crisis and the nature of money.Ellen Brown author, former civil litigation attorney and founder of the Public Banking Institute comes on in the first half hour. She explains how student debt is not only crippling the debt holders with unfair debt repyment obligations, it is used by money managers as a commodity not unlike the Subprime mortgages that infamously led to the financial meltdown of 2008. In the second half hour we hear a September 2011 speech given by San Francisco Bay Area-basedIndependent journalist and podcast producer Kellia Ramares-Watson. She goes further than Ellen BRown in suggesting that the money system not only has to be reformed but disbanded altogether. She suggests in the speech that students should default on their debts as a political action.
