ERIC SCHECHTER—The fact that we are ruled by the rich wouldn’t be so bad if they were actually unified, like in conspiracy theories such as the Illuminati. At least then the handful of people at the top would say to each other, “we few who secretly own this world should take steps to preserve it, so that we and our children can continue to live in luxury on our ill-gotten gains.” No such luck. They are not unified. Each one of them would gladly stab another in the back and steal his stuff if given the opportunity. Each one of them is saying to himself, “I just want to make a quick buck; I’ll leave it to someone else to clean up the mess.” And so the mess keeps getting worse. In particular, the oil companies (like the tobacco companies) knowingly lied for decades about the ill effects of their product.

PHILIP A. FARRUGGIO—I just interviewed former World Bank staff member and geopolitical analyst Peter Koenig via telephone at his home in Geneva. Koenig had just returned from South America , a place where he has travelled to many times . One of the issues that he is very passionate about is the agenda by ( so called ) world health and finance organizations to privatize water… especially drinking water! He understands how dangerous it is to allow private for profit companies to control our drinking water, whereupon the old saying of ‘ Profit over People’ rings so true. This all made this writer think of when I turned on C-Span a few short years ago and caught the congressional hearing on the Flint water crisis. It made me so angry that I wanted to scream out loud!: ‘ You morons! Why is there no one there who will connect the dots!?’

ERIC ZUESSE—Donald Trump represents one faction of America’s billionaires; Barack Obama represented another faction of them; but each President (at least since 1981) has been representing only them (America’s billionaires).

At Saker.Community we anticipated this, and when two of our favorite authors found that Amazon would not handle their books without watering down the message or jumping through hoops, we set about to position ourselves as a indy publisher and a portal for distributing our community members’ books. To this end we have a book buyer registration of almost 800 Sakerites currently and this is growing daily. While the opportunity presents itself, my heartfelt thanks go to the community members that support us in our book sales.
