We speak with former CIA analyst-turned-dissident Ray McGovern about the institutions that truly govern the United States, comprising the MICIMATT, or Military-Industrial-Congressional-Intelligence-Media-Academia-Think-Tank Complex. We discuss how the CIA popularized the “conspiracy theory” smear to discredit US government critics, as well as Donald Trump and the January 6 Capitol riot, Russiagate lies and the DNC “hack,” JFK, WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, the new cold war on Russia and China, and the Joe Biden administration. ||| Moderate Rebels ||| Please consider supporting us on PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/ModerateRebels

On this show this week, Chris Hedges talks to Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald about the incoming Biden administration and what it will mean for a country in crisis, ravaged by a pandemic it cannot control, hostage to corporate power and bifurcated into warring factions. Glenn Greenwald is the author of several bestsellers, including How Would a Patriot Act? and With Liberty and Justice for Some. His most recent book is No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—The US empire is ugly and creepy. The more you look at it, the uglier and creepier it gets. That’s why so much effort goes into keeping the public from looking at it directly.
The US empire has two faces, one rooted in the west coast and the other in the east. The first face, which sprouts up from Hollywood, presents a grinning plastic smile to the world depicting how fun and wonderful and righteous America is and how all its systems are working completely fine. The second face, which sprouts up from DC, Arlington and Langley, is wild-eyed and covered in blood.

MoA—Sheldon Adelson, the casino oligarch who has financed far right causes as well as the political careers of Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahoo, has died. In 2013 Adelson had called for nuking Tehran (vid).
Unfortunately his money will continue to flow to the far right as his Israeli wife is the one who is now running the show.
In other news B’Tselem, the topmost Israeli human rights organization, finally describes both Israel and its control of the Palestinian territories as a single apartheid regime

PAUL EDWARDS—After WWI, invasion of nations to steal resources fell somewhat out of favor in the world, which was awkward. If war and murder were out, then Capitalism—a euphemism for our government—had to find an alternative. It gambled that the next best thing to conquest was corruption, which proved to be cost effective besides, always a critical factor to us. You just pull the Marines out of Nicaragua, Haiti, Cuba, and the Philippines, and install a dirty elite to hand you the country for a tiny cut of the gross. It was much cheaper than murdering thousands of people.
