Interview of Greg Palast

One of the warriors of the people, Greg Palast is a Geezah, this is a great interview. Trust me, all hope is not lost!

from the Alex Jones Radio Show

He is an investigative reporter. He’s talked about Lord Wakeham, head of N.M. Rothschild trying to censor him. He broke the story, one of the biggest stories of the last year. In fact, one of the biggest stories ever and I’m serious when I say that about a thousand pages getting leaked out of the World Bank. And, of course, the defection of Stiglitz, the chief economist of the World Bank. Their plan to implode economies, their four-part plan. We are going to recap that today and get the latest developments from this investigative journalist, who I would call a populist, because – you know, Greg Palast is a hero of the left, but this guy went after Bill Clinton. He exposes this corporate elite that is big government, that is socialistic in their consolidation of the public trust, then consolidating that into their private hands. We are dealing with a command and control system, ladies and gentlemen, and he does real investigative journalism like they did in this country one-hundred years ago. We are honored to have him.

What’s the latest info that you are working on, sir? Good to have you on.

GP: Okay, great to be on Alex. And by the way, that’s the famous, I guess I’m not the darling of the left anymore, they are very upset with me. The problem is that my target is not the left or the right. My target is a very small privileged elite which thinks that the globe is their toy. And I think that journalists, like you say the old time journalists, muckrakers, used to think that that was their job to uncover that stuff. And it’s kind of gone out of style. So, but I’m glad that you’ve opened up a chink in the electronic Berlin wall here to get this information out. So I really do appreciate it.

I’ve been working on a lot of things. One, I just came back from Caracas, Venezuela. And the U.S. government and the banks and the oil companies have been working out on the president of Venezuela - the communist dictator and etc. What they don’t tell you is the reason they are out after this guy is that he is not just the president of Venezuela; he is the president of OPEC. And he has doubled the royalties on oil companies taking oil out of Venezuela. Not many people know that Venezuela is our main supplier of oil in this hemisphere.
