Sociopath Neocons Sacrifice Ukrainians and Global Poor – Economist Michael Hudson

Click here for the full episode, including the extended interview with Michael Hudson: https://usefulidiots.substack.com/p/extended-episode-sociopath-neocons?r=je5va&s=w&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web

We asked economist and “futurist” Michael Hudson, economic advisor and professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, his thoughts on the people who have run our country for the 50 years he’s studied US politics.

“They’re sociopaths. They think it’s a game. They don’t care about the things you and I care about.”

He shares a dark story of the Carter administration’s strategy to cause a drought that would raise American grain prices so they could pay for higher priced oil. This, plus the constant racist, elitist sacrifice of people in third-world countries, caused him to leave his post as economic advisor.

And nearly 50 years later, the US strategy in Ukraine, Yemen, Syria, Africa, and all over hasn’t changed. It’s all about money and power.

“I won’t say that Biden and Trump are Chinese agents,” he says in a scathing review of the presidents. “But if they were, they couldn’t have done anything to serve China more.”

Hudson is the next in a long line of Useful Idiots guests to take down President Joe. And after last week’s explosive clip of Biden mocking a former marine, we’re pretty sure a lot of people are beginning to agree.

Plus, Taibbi exposes defense contractors on MSM, Greg Abbott accidentally helps migrants, and we help you get out of your next boring zoom meeting: https://www.soundtheexcuse.com/

  1. You should have started the segment with the conflict of interest video. Katie had almost talked me to sleep by the time it came on. The most powerful thing on the show and the thing that would glue watchers to their seats is on after we all get tired of the chatter

  2. In the Hebrew Bible, the term is used three times in Leviticus 16, where two male goats were to be sacrificed to Yahweh and one of the two was selected by lot, for Yahweh is seen as speaking through the lots. One goat is selected by lot and sent into the wilderness לַעֲזָאזֵל‎, "for Azazel". This goat was then cast out in the desert as part of Yom Kippur. The scapegoat ritual can be traced back to 24th century BC Ebla, from where it spread throughout the ancient Near East

  3. Chevron is working in Venezuela as it has for years (having been exempted from the sanctions by Trump and Biden.) Couldn't Venezuela seize their property 'till they pay the judgment to the indigenous Ecuadorians who won the judgment.

  4. If you look at the kleptocrats (aka Russian oligarchs) who fled Russia with their looted billions when Putin was elected and kicked Wall Street out of Russia, they were welcomed by the UK, the US and other western countries.

    But now those oligarchs are having their wealth and assets seized. Ostensibly, this is meant to punish Russia and Putin, but he sees them as thieves who sold out Russia, not allies.

    So, the neoliberal promise to the kleptocrats worldwide is "sell out your country, your people, and we'll make you rich and you can live happily ever after in London or Miami" or wherever, but now they're breaking that deal with the Russian oligarchs.

    Why would the corrupt leaders in Asia, Africa or Latin America continue working with the neoliberal west now that they see that deal won't be honored?

  5. These algorithms just see the "bad words" and ban posts, regardless of context. Abbott admitted to trafficking illegal immigrants on film, so I anticipate his arrest.

  6. Why don't you drop the nice term 'neocon' and call them what they really are, Fascist, plan and simple , to the point, on the nail head, dirty rotten, inhumane Fascist.

  7. I was reading Michael Hudson age on Wikipedia. Surprised no one labels him as conspiracy theorist, right wing or such……..”They” soon will. What an awful world we live in.

  8. On a side note: how will we break the Canadians of their tendency to apologize for things over which they have no control? 6:45 Canadians, stop making a mockery of apologies!!

  9. For those who, like myself, are unable to pay for further information, let me assure listeners, that there are NO oligarchs in Russia. The Oligarch class came crawling out of the woodwork when Gorbachev betrayed Russia and collapsed the USSR against the expressed wishes of the people, largely because although he knew Russia badly needed to make a lot of changes, he had no idea how to do it. The oligarchs of Russia flew with their brothers, the oligarchs of Israel and America. An oligarch is someone who is able to influence government and the law purely because of their considerable wealth, which of itself brings power. There are wealthy businessmen in Russia now, yes, but they have no more political power than the corner store grocery man. It's this America doesnt want to admit, they want the masses to think badly of Russia, thus they hide the fact that America is an Oligarch, and Kleptocracy, by mouthing of meaningless phrases like "freedom and democracy", and calling Russia an Oligarchy. It's all the other way round.

  10. A bottom feeder slimeball, Bill Browder has been making the rounds voicing his lies about Putin. He is a former "investment" banker v. commerical banker ie he is a vulture capitalist who went to Russia during the "shock therapy" after the USSR collapse. Browder had worked for Robert Maxwell and borrowed $25 million to sucker and sack naive russians during the privatization of Russian assets. Browder claims that he was targeted by Putin becuz' he was exposing the fraud of the Russian oligarchs including Putin. During Browder's time in Russia, the Russians life expectancy dropped by 10 yrs. Browder is a lisr, a tax cheat, a slime Solomon Bros graduate. These types caused the bank failure of the Great Depression and the Great Recession. FDR would not let them incorporate and broke them from the commercial banks per Glass Steagel act. That act *law) was repealed in 1999 and we experienced the Great Recession in 2008. All of this Putin hating is a result of the HRC loss in 2016 and the neocon aim of USA USA to control the world.

  11. Where in the hell is the ACLU with censorship? “In 1978, the ACLU took a controversial stand for free speech by defending a neo-Nazi group that wanted to march through the Chicago suburb of Skokie, where many Holocaust survivors lived.”

  12. Yeah, I got suspended by fb right after last week's episode. I shared the episode and that link and then the callin. Then they said they were wrong and apologized so I reposted it and they suspended me again and didn't take it back this time. I sent it to review.

    I think I can start posting again this evening. There's a whole lot to catch up on that came out since including Obama seemingly calling for more censorship.
