Max Keiser's been on top form lately...

More Mad Max here

Obviously, the standard caveats about anyone who's granted corporate airtime apply

Count me as a big Max fan. I do slightly share your qualms about his peak oil/global warming opinions, but when he sticks to economics he's bang on the money. Also one of the thing a about him is he doesn't appear on the usual corporate media outlets. This interview was for an Iranian news channel and most of his films are for Al Jazeera.

You're admittedly unlikely to see Max on Fox, CNN or the Beeb

In all honesty, I don't know what to make of AJ

and, as discussed here previously, Max has worked with those super ecologists the Goldsmiths in the past and, personally speaking, I wouldn't be able to hold down my breakfast just being in the same room as one of them

I have a nagging feeling that AJ is black propaganda, some sort of Fox News inside out, and this video is spot on in that respect.

- The anchor is in Theran, aka Mordor, and Max Keiser is in Paris, world capital of weaselly anti-american pinko liberals.

- Max Keiser, refers openly to 9/11, and even to building 7 from a conspiracist perspective, which is a big no-no. The rest isn't really news.

Maybe I'm totally wrong, but that piece (and others) is at best a decoy. It sounds too much like what conspiraloons want to hear, and I really doubt they are the target audience.

To me it looks more like a 2-minutes-hate piece for mainstream viewers, something to try and get a conservative reaction out of them.

Im new to Max Keiser but everything he said is spot on.

Max Keiser, refers openly to 9/11, and even to building 7 from a conspiracist perspective, which is a big no-no.

explain what you mean by that statement.

I think what anon 22:41 is referring to is that if you listen to Keiser from the point of view of someone who isn't already a 'Truther' your, er, programming will tell you that what he's saying is a big no-no

Or, to out it another way, Max is preaching to the already converted and unlikely to win over any new converts

Stef said...

The Big Question for Truthers is, of course...

'What are the most effective techniques for infecting/ converting/ recruiting as many of those Truthers in Waiting out there as possible?'

This is also, I suspect, a question which occupies much of the time of those Black Ops folks all us Loons know exist

I think if you have not figured out by now that 911 was an inside more than likely you never will.There is more than enough info out there to make an informed decision on the matter.

Many folks are asleep at the wheel and just not interested.They are the ones who would have gladly joined the Nazi party back in the 30s.

You might convince the odd person,,,the majority are ignorant and half asleep.

Stef said...

I'm more optimistic than that but think most people need some kind of shock before they can experience some kind of awakening

Plenty of shocks ahead...

"Plenty of shocks ahead.."

Definitely!I get the feeling there is some sort of momentum gathering,,,a quickening of pace,,not quite sure to what though.

An important warning which the Conspiraloon Alliance endorse wholeheartedly

Dramatic stuff on Wallstreet.

An already weak stock market plummeted early Monday afternoon after the House of Representatives rejected the $700 billion bailout package.

The Dow slid as much as 670 points, or 6% to 10,473 in immediate reaction to the news. In recent trading, the index was down about 555 points, while the S&P and Nasdaq were each down more than 6.5%.

The vote was at 207 for vs. 226 against when the official voting time for the plan expired, but House leadership hasn't officially closed the vote.
