re: George and his board ops -- for someone so gushing, so earnest, so quick to remind us how 'spiritual' and balanced he is, I thought Noory was a thoughtless prick over the situation. As someone else mentioned, they were treated like drive-thru value menu items. Completely tone deaf and thoughtless. Worker in the light? Kiss my ass, douche bag.
Monetizing debt, etc -- I've been following this with interest for some time now. The US is the middle of a not-so-silent currency war, although it's not getting front page headlines. I put in 12-hr days at work, don't have a lot of time to read up on the subject as I would like but I think that I could bring more to the subject than 'we're in for a bumpy ride.' This is why Noory is a terrible host, he's like the Chicken McNuggets of radio -- bland, palatable, edible, non-threatening.
George could've illuminated the subject with intelligence without resorting to hyperbole... you know, stuff like low interest rates kills outsiders buying our t-bills, so the fed is doing it. He could've asked if we're voluntarily devaluing our currency in order to service our debt. He could ask how that will affect 401Ks and retirements. He could've asked about inflation, and how that will temporarily lead to an apparent 'recovery' but may lead to hyperinflation. He could ask about the Yuan, and Brazil's currency, and the Yen, and how this affects trade.
More stupidity -- the night before Alex Jones, George made just a blatantly dumb comment to the guest. They were discussing world regimes/leaders, and in reference to the rise of Hitler Noory said something to the effect of "you know, the biggest mistake after WWI was letting Germany rebuild." This kind of ties into last night's topic of currency and the fed.
I started screaming at the radio. Hitler/Third Reich was the offspring of precisely what George suggested we do. Germany was raped at Versailles and paved the way for the social fomentation that started to brew. Brutal reparations and isolation was not the way to deal with Weimar Germany.
Japan is a perfect example -- the US turned Japan into a parking lot, then we showed up with money, aid shipments and reconstruction teams. Then again, I'm a jingoistic bastard that thinks Truman did the right thing.
