Podcast notes for broken show — and a hiatus announcement.

Shelly and I tried to record a show last night, but technical difficulties kept the audio from being laid to track.  While I hope to potentially have a guest host sit in this weekend to fill in the content-gap, there are no promises.

In the interim, here’s the link list containing the stories we were to cover.

If I’m able to get a remote co-host’s audio put to track, expect a posting on either Sunday or Monday.

Otherwise, here’s the link list.  We’ll be back on the air as soon as we’re able.  Apologies for the inconvenience.

Introduction – Episode XXI:

Notes to show(s): Apologies for the delay with both episodes.  To make up for the delay on episode XXI, we’re posting episode XXII the day after we recorded it, as well as a free bonus segment!  It’s an interview with Peter Schiff discussing the economy.  All great stuff!  Episode XXI discusses the economic meltdown, etc.  Episode XXII discusses Election 2008 and the coronation of our new messianic Dictator-in-Chief, Obama!  Though, rest assured, we’d crap just as much on McCain if he were (s)elected Fuhrer-in-Chief… but because we’re non-partisan around here (well, except for our support of Ron Paul), everyone’s fair game!  Enjoy the show, stock up on guns, buy some storable foods and gold/silver, and get ready!  Things are going to get really nasty–the Rockefellers and Brzezinski demand it so!

Note to show: Apologies for the late posting, but it has been a busy week.  Nonetheless, there will be a new podcast in relatively short order to make up for it (recorded 24 October 2008, tonight).  This show, recorded approximately a week ago, still hits home on a lot of important topics.  Enjoy!  And we’ll soon be updating the website again.  Things have been tough on my end lately, but they’re slowly starting to improve.  Thanks for your patience otherwise.  — M.

Paul Joseph Watson – “Bush & McCain Blackmail America With Economic Terrorism”

Bush & McCain Blackmail America With Economic Terrorism

Ferocious fear-mongering rhetoric, possible cancellation of presidential election as financial terrorists threaten Americans with chaos unless power-grabbing bailout bill is passed

Paul Joseph Watson | September 25, 2008

From shying away from even mentioning such terms as “recession,” “unemployment” or “bank failures,” Bush, Bernanke and Paulson are now vigorously invoking the fear of financial meltdown as part of a campaign of economic terror to blackmail the American people into accepting the power-grabbing “bailout,” while John McCain, who last week said the fundamentals of the economy are strong, is now all but threatening to cancel the election should the proposal not receive swift passage.

Bush’s speech last night was a throwback to his March 2003 stump before the invasion of Iraq – replace words like “weapons of mass destruction” with “financial panic” and the tone of the two is not dissimilar.

Bush rammed home the fear by appealing to people’s personal anxieties.

Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. – “Learning About the State”

Learning About the State

Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. | September 24, 2008

What we’ve seen in the last week is the state at work – and by the state, I do not mean a particular set of leaders. If we watch carefully, we can gain insight into what the state is and why our fundamental problem extends far above and below the political party system.

The moment is complicated by the upcoming election, so some people are distracted by the circus of McCain vs. Obama and all the characters associated with that silly little battle. What they are looking at is really the veneer. It is a covering designed to prevent you from seeing what the state is and why it matters.

Douglas Rushkoff – “Print Your Own Money”

http://www.boingboing.net/2008/09/23/what-went-wrong.html

Print Your Own Money

Everyone seems to want to know about the economy these days, so we may as well go there. It’s as great an example as any of a program that not only got out of control, but became so prevalent – so accepted – that we came to take it for granted. We think of the economy and its rules as given circumstances, when they are actually constructions.

In brief, the money we use is just one kind of money. Invented in the Renaissance, and protected with laws banning other kinds of money, it has very particular biases that lead to almost inevitable outcomes.

Gerald Celente – “DC Heist – Wall Street Gang Hijacks Washington”

DC Heist – Wall Street Gang Hijacks Washington

Gerald Celente | September 23, 2008

On the evening of September 18th 2008, the American democratic system was replaced by a financial dictatorship.

What was billed as a “Federal Bailout” was nothing less than a bloodless coup. The Wall Street Gang had taken over the White House and control of Washington. Congress promised not to resist, and pledged to pass legislation as demanded.

Warning that America’s financial system was perilously close to collapse unless immediate action was taken, economic martial law was declared.

Dollar May Get `Crushed’ as Traders Weigh Up Bailout

Bo Nielsen and Anchalee Worrachate | September 22, 2008

Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson’s plan to end the rout in U.S. financial markets may derail the dollar’s three-month rally as investors weigh the costs of the rescue.

The combination of spending $700 billion on soured mortgage-related assets and providing $400 billion to guarantee money-market mutual funds will boost U.S. borrowing as much as $1 trillion, according to Barclays Capital interest-rate strategist Michael Pond in New York. While the rescue may restore investor confidence to battered financial markets, traders will again focus on the twin budget and current-account deficits and negative real U.S. interest rates.

The Treasury Morphs Into A Hedgefund

Moon of Alabama | September 23, 2008

The Mother of All Bailouts plan gives the Treasury not only authority to buy and sell Mortgage Backed Securities, but allows it to deal in any financial instruments including leveraged derivatives.

This evolved over the various versions.

Forecast: U.S. dollar could plunge 90 pct

UPI | November 19, 2007

A financial crisis will likely send the U.S. dollar into a free fall of as much as 90 percent and gold soaring to $2,000 an ounce, a trends researcher said.

“We are going to see economic times the likes of which no living person has seen,” Trends Research Institute Director Gerald Celente said, forecasting a “Panic of 2008.”

“The bigger they are, the harder they’ll fall,” he said in an interview with New York’s Hudson Valley Business Journal.

Joe Schembrie – “Your Bill for the Bailouts”

Your Bill for the Bailouts

Joe Schembrie | September 23, 2008

The Federal Reserve System’s bailout of American International Group will cost $85 billion. After the expense is apportioned among three hundred million American citizens, your personal bill for AIG’s bailout will be $280. If you have a family of four, their share is $1100.

Do you feel that you’re getting your money’s worth from this bailout? Has the AIG bailout been a rewarding experience for you and your family, well worth a thousand dollars subtracted from the college funds of your children so that a CEO who crashed his company can afford a mansion in the Caribbean?

Can the Rescue Plan Fix the US Economy?

Frank Shostak | September 22, 2008

Given last week’s dramatic events — the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the end of Merrill Lynch’s independence, and an $85 billion US-government bailout of insurer AIG — most financial institutions are likely to become more sensitive to the state of their net worth.
