  1. ANOTHER SUPERB INTERVIEW!!!!!!

  2. Very interesting. Would like to hear more of this guy.

  3. Many if not most of the Neocons are Zionist Jew hardcores, the same crowd who carved Israel out of the flesh-and-blood heart of Palestine. Obama’s BFF, Irgunspawn Rahm Emanuel is one of them. So Mr. Manion is correct: the Neocons did not lose the election and they are not out of power.

  4. The Israel-centric Dennis Ross, associated w/the PNAC and a pusher of the rape of Iraq seems to have an inside track in the Obama Admin already…More of the same?

  5. The so-called “Neocons” are part of an old con…

    see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXA9S1jAwxI&feature=related and watch all 6 parts.

    When most Americans are faced with the reality of how badly the have been and are being fleeced most choose to do nothing. Much easier to take the crumbs that fall off of the bankster’s table. My own opinion is that until enough people become aware of and fed up with the present system and are actually willing to risk some skin (see part 6 of that series) then nothing much is going to change…

  6. President Obama said that Iran should be barred from importing gasoline. That´s a Declaration of War, the same as HR 362 and SR 580 which were shelved for now.
    Does President Obama long to go back to 1932 which will be the result of war with Iran, and for no reason at all. There´s ZERO evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program.

  7. And we all know that Rahm Emmanuel has dual citizensihp…and we’re finding out more-all bad..Israel has hundreds of nuclear missiles..A nuclear Iran is no threat to them..the mullahs have a return address…why should Israel have a nuclear monopoly in the Middle East? And guaranteed by American muscle? Unless this point is argued successfully then war with Iran is a matter of when-not if…

  8. I didn’t vote for Saint President-elect Obama, nor did I vote for Mad Bomber McInsane. They were the candidates of our monopoly, one-party (DemoPublican Party) system.

    The fact that Obama appointed Rahm Emanuel–a Zionist, dual-citizenship, everything-for-Israel warmonger–to be his chief of staff, is an indication that the neocon fleas are jumping onto a new dog. . . .

  9. The War Party runs the country, under control of the power elite, for 70 years. Until the masses get organized, energized, and activated, no positive changes will be made.

  10. I don’t understand why you claim to be representative of the left and of Independents and yet you have NOTHING on RALPH NADER! He was a candidate for president this year and he had a LOT to say about the corporate-controlled government which has left taxpayers with a debt to pass on for generations! HE was the ONLY one running who stated he would prosecute Bush and Cheney as war criminals! HE also stated that he wanted to see the CEO’s who destroyed our nations financial structure put in JAIL! If you need info on him, you can find it all over the web or on his website: http://www.votenader.org I can’t imagine WHY you don’t have any coverage on Ralph Nader and on his views of American politics today?!!

  11. President Obama said he wouldn´t allow a UN veto on an American attack on Iran. What´s the matter with him ?
