The Empire: Chris Hedges, Noam Chomsky, Alfred McCoy, Sheldon Richman, Caitlin Johnstone

US the policeman of the world? Relations with China, Russia, the START treaty. What happens when an empire declines? Defend from enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC?  Corporate totalitarianism, alternative realities.

State of American Empire, Chris Hedges with Noam Chomsky

On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to Professor Noam Chomsky, the pioneering linguist, prolific author of numerous seminal political works, about the state of the American Empire. Professor Chomsky is the author of over 100 books including The Fateful Triangle, Manufacturing Consent, Failed States and Requiem for the American Dream, and America’s most important intellectual. In his new book, with Marv Waterstone, professor emeritus at the University of Arizona, is Consequences of Capitalism: Manufacturing Discontent and Resistance.

When empires decline and fall, they seldom collapse in the sort of sudden apocalypse …


Imperial America, Which Never Left, Is Back

In a cliché-ridden foreign-policy speech delivered at the State Department on Thursday, President Joe Biden declared that “America is back” – on the global stage, presumably, as policeman of the world, but certainly not a disinterested policeman. The problem is that it never left.


The Empire Must Die: Notes from the Edge of the Narrative Matrix

By Caitlin Johnstone  February 6, 2021

The first thing an authoritarian power does to quash protests nowadays is always to cut the internet, because it kills dissidents’ ability to organize and share information. Don’t think the increasing normalization of internet censorship in the west is about anything else.

  1. NEURO WEAPONS. HOLOCAUST OF OUR TIME. US MILITARY AND GOVERNMENT – CEASE & DESIST IMMEDIATELY: CONTACT AND CONNECTIONS TO ALL “TARGETED INDIVIDUALS” (TI). YOU HAVE STOLEN THEIR UNIQUE, IDENTIFYING BRAIN DATA TO USE IN EXPERIMENTS, ESSENTIALLY HOLDING THEM CAPTIVE AND SUBJECTING THEM TO UNIQUE, RANDOM NOISES AND VOLUMES OVER THESE BRAINWAVES VIA SATELLITE, CELL TOWERS, ETC. – TORTURE. YOU MUST RETURN ALL THIER UNIQUE, IDENTIFYING DATA TO THEM. THEY HAD NO CHOICE, NO CONTRACT, NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE, NO IRB (OR OTHER) OVERSIGHT – NOTHING. A COMPLETELY ILLEGAL AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL ASSAULT. READ YOUR 4TH AND 5TH AMENDMENTS – WE ALL HAVE AN OATH TO THE CONSTITUTION AND THE MILITARY SPECUIFICALLY SWEARS TO UPHOLD OUR US CONSTITUTION. THIS IS IN NO MANNER LEGALLY JUSTIFIABLE. STOP THIS HOLOCAUST, STOP THIS HORROR – NOW.

    Voigts has a degree in Control Systems Engineering and served in Electronic Warfare and Nuclear Billets. While in service he became aware of ongoing illegal non-consensual human experimentation projects studying human-machine interface. These illegal and unethical projects use non-consenting victims referred to as “Targeted Individuals” to conduct various psychological and physical experiments with the use of electronic warfare weapons that essentially torture the victim psychologically and physically.

    This important social issue affects hundreds of thousands of individuals in America. As these weapons are often used covertly, many victims of this electronic harassment including men, women, and children, may not know they are targeted and are not able to recognize many of the symptoms. Raising social awareness and increasing support on this critical civil rights issue is essential to ending these crimes against humanity.

    During his service Voigts heard a holocaust survivor present her story then appealed to the group that if they ever saw anything like that happen again to take action against it. This left an impression on Voigts as he discovered the horrific details of this human experimentation program with electronic weapons. A true American hero, Voigts stated, “I intentionally got myself drafted into the program to help me understand it better so I could help shut it down.”
