  1. Speaking of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn….America needs an English translation of his book:

    "200 Hundred Years Together"

    As soon as possible!

  2. My favorite interviews are those with Lew Rockwell. Always political dynamite!

  4. Unlike the followers of the likes of Bill O'Reilly at least the Russians didn't believe a word that Pravda wrote.

  5. This was a good interview, but Mr. Rockwell should learn how to pronounce the word "nuclear."

  6. Like the old Russian joke says: "There is no Novosti in Pravda and no Pravda in Novosti."

    Novosti = News
    Pravda = Truth

    I find it sad that Russian media today is more informative that US media. I think 'Russia Today' did more interviews with Ron Paul during the 08 election than the rest of the American MSM combined. They were a lot more respectful to him than the US media counter-parts.

  7. Scott, as to your doubt expressed in the interview with Lew that you are not getting through to people with the facts about the Iranian nuclear position, I can definately say that iti is only thyrough your show together with articles by Gareth Porter and others that I have been able to be properly informed and thereby able to challenge others' views.

  8. Thanks for that profound and insightful comment.

  9. Lew's pronunciation is correct. If you don't believe me, ask Homer Simpson:

  10. The FCC must break up the media monopoly by Zionists. That would start the ball rolling to freedom of the press.

  11. Mr. Horton, track down Alfred McCoy (professor at University of Wisconsin, Madison) about torture and the CIA, if you haven't had him on your show already (I know he's been published here).
    Good work!

  12. Learn Russian. Knowing a foreign language frees your mind up in many ways. Not the least is the ability to read a foreign newspaper or understand a foreign broadcast.

  13. Can Americans get Voice of Russia via Shortwave? Or Internet? Their English language programming might be enlightening. Ditto other English broadcasts from foreign countries. NHK, Radio Japan, is pretty good. BBC World Service, of course.

  14. Don't be petty.

  15. The real problem is that the Pentagon aims to achieve a disarming and unanswerable first-strike capability. Bob Aldridge on the new missiles in Poland, Romania and on ships in the Black Sea in Bulgaria (each with three earth-penetrating MIRVs ?), "Whether on ships or land, they are still a necessary component for an unanswerable first strike":

  16. Which may result in Launch On Warning and Nuclear War by mistake.
