Stjepan Mestrovic is a Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M University and author of “The Good Soldier on Trial: A Sociological Study of Misconduct by the US Military Pertaining to Operation Iron Triangle, Iraq.” It deals with the conviction of Pfc. Corey Clagett for killing two unarmed Iraqis and trying to kill a third.
Attorney Paul Bergrin was involved. He won the right to have commanding officer, Col. Michael Steele, testify, then was arrested before trial to prevent it because his evidence could have embarrassed and incriminated the Pentagon.
As a result, Bergrin was targeted, indicted on bogus charges, including orchestrating a murder, and now faces a possible death penalty if convicted.
Mestrovic’s book and the Bergrin case will be discussed.
Ellen Brown is a civil litigation attorney, author, and frequent writer on financial issues. He latest book, “Web of Debt,” is a brilliant analysis of the private banking cartel Federal Reserve, how it usurped money creation power, and how we can take it back.
The Daily Bell “Compendium of Free-Market Thought” recently awarded her a title of her own, saying “There are in (their) opinion, in modern economic thought, now Keynsians, Austrians and Brownians.”
Brown’s latest financial writing will be discussed.
Nora Barrows Friedman is a producer and co-host of Pacifica Radio KPFA’s Flashpoints Radio, a cutting-edge program now threatened with extinction because of management’s draconian budget cuts.
This topic will be discussed and Friedman’s heroic reporting on Occupied Palestine, including directly from the West Bank.
Stephen Zarlenga is Director of the American Monetary Institute (AMI), a publicly supported charity involved in conducting research on the nature of money, its role in controlling societies, and the importance of reforming a broken system to achieve economic justice.
Zarlenga is a noted expert on issues related to finance, securities, insurance, mutual funds, real estate, and futures trading. He’s written 20 books on money, banking, politics and philosophy, including “The Lost Science of Money” that “exposes the mythology created to protect those who are embezzling from society” by controlling the nation’s money.
The result is a structurally corrupted political economy with elected officials the handmaidens of Wall Street, an unprecedented wealth disparity between the rich and most others, and a society in decay heading for ruin and tyranny unless stopped.
That topic will be discussed and Zarlenga’s prescription for change.
Robert Knight is the featured guest on The Progressive Radio News Hour
Thursday, January 21 at 10AM US Central time
Robert Knight anchored The Knight Report for Pacifica Radio KPFA’s Flashpoints Radio – a regular cutting-edge account of vital events unreported in the major media, until his contract was terminated without notice because of management’s draconian budget cuts.
Knight has had extensive experience as a producer, anchor, domestic and international reporter, and editorialist delivering vital cutting-edge content, no longer available to Flashpoints’ listeners unless efforts to bring him back succeed.
Knight’s work, his termination, and a campaign to support Flashpoints and restore its full budget and staff will be discussed.
