My favorite videos

Some people collect baseball cards, coins, or bottle caps. I collect political and environmental/socal justice videos. Here are my favorites—a compilation in progress.

Many here were produced by Mike McCormick of Seattle, Washington, for his program Community Forum and/or his Web site: Talking Stick TV. Lately, it seems, I've been watching videos that feature economists and people who discuss the economy: Max Keiser, Paul Craig Roberts, and Dmitry Orlov. In addition, more and more I am also linking to Google's author-talks program. Click HERE for current search results at the YouTube Web site.

All together, these videos have enlightened me enormously and have transformed my thinking in dramatic ways. I'm happy to share them with others.

Here at right are videos of Paul Craig Roberts, my other favorite commentator (aside from Max Keiser). He was a high-up U.S. government official in the 80s: Assistant Treasury Secretary under Ronald Reagan. Now, I couldn't stand Ronald Reagan, so this makes no sense that could feature such a person. So far, I agree with everything out of this man's mouth. And what comes from this man's mouth will take your breath away. No one is telling it how it is like Paul Craig Roberts tells it like it is.

Key Quote:
Col. Lankford wrote, "September 11, 2001 seems destined to be the watershed event of our lives and the greatest test for our democracy in our lifetimes. The evidence of government complicity in the lead-up to the events, the failure to respond during the event, and the astounding lack of any meaningful investigation afterwards, as well as the ignoring of evidence turned up by others that renders the official explanation impossible, may signal the end of the American experiment. It has been used to justify all manners of measures to legalize repression at home and as a pretext for behaving as an aggressive empire abroad. Until we demand an independent, honest, and thorough investigation and accountability for those whose action and inaction led to those events and the cover-up, our republic and our Constitution remain in the gravest danger.(—"Lt. Col. Shelton F. Lankford, U.S. Marine Corps (ret) Retired U.S. Marine Corps fighter pilot with over 300 combat missions flown. Decoration­s include the Distinguis­hed Flying Cross and 32 awards of the Air Medal.

Stacey & Doug Loizeaux of Controlled Demolition: A breathtakingly frank discussion (August 21, 2001) of the demolition industry, which in fact implicates this company in the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings that were without an iota of doubt imploded by explosives. The Loizeauxs describe the demolition of the Dunes Hotel, which became nothing short of a spectacle "show" and which included "aviation fuel," (that is, jet fuel) as a special effect. Doug Loizeaux is heard to explain that his company can make a building "dance" on its way down and that Controlled Demolition has brought down buildings that likely could have contained human remains, including the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Free here, or purchase mp4 file HERE ($1.95). Even more evidence implicating the Loizeauxs, is an INTERVIEW with Mark Loizeauxs. Listen particularly closely (about 2/3 in) when Loizeaux explains how the Twin Towers came down, including protestations about all the people who accuse him and his company of the crime of 911.

Here at right are videos of a new hero of mine, Carl Dix, of the Revolutionary Communist Party. I first happened upon him giving a firey speech in Union Square Park in the fall of 2010. He was speaking at an anti-police-brutality rally that took place after a noisy march through the city streets. Activists dramatically held up larged posters with scetches of about 25 individuals beaten to death in NYPD custody. I'm not sure communism is the way to go, Carl. I'd prefer a highly regulated capitalistic system, with a true social safety net. Oh, and we need to root out the entrenched criminal class running the country.
