When trains derail and bridges fall, oil pipelines burst, water dries up and people live without homes, one might reasonably conclude that the fundamentals of civic systems are not being met. But these chronic occurrences are also signs of a different type of systemic failure – a failure of public and spiritual priorities caused by the dominant paradigm of profits over people. This week Ellen speaks with the distinguished philosopher, ethicist and author John B. Cobb about how system failure is inevitable if priorities are corrupt. And co-host Walt McRee talks with Joe Guinan about the launching of a new collaborative effort to create Next Systems to replace the failing performance of money-centric ones. Finally, Public Banking Reporter Matt Stannard reflects on his world as a happy, but troubled, Amtrak traveler.

At what point are you willing to challenge your own notions of what’s really going on? Can you even imagine that the mavens of the Money Power would threaten human survival to serve themselves for even bigger personal profits? Ellen’s guest, researcher Dane Wigington, has a trove of data to suggest that they would.  And they do so in the form of geoengineering, a covert tool allegedly being used to control natural systems for private profit. We also hear commentary from Matt Stannard about the economics of the Baltimore uprising and from Marc Armstrong about America’s only publicly-owned depository bank, the Bank of North Dakota, which just issued its latest annual report -- it’s another record-setting winner!

In the world of monetary reformists, there’s a clear understanding that things not only shouldn’t continue as they are, they can’t continue as they are – that systemic failure is upon us as current social and political outcomes tear at the fabric of civil life.  Ellen speaks with Gar Alperovitz, one of America’s most venerable reformist thinkers and policy experts, about his new “The Next System Project” to help design and precipitate what should happen next. Also, maybe the national debt is unnecessary after all – author Scott Baker talks with co-host Walt McRee about his new book “America is Not Broke,” and Matt Stannard reports on the financial travesties imposed by Wall Street on American cities.

Many of us aren’t shocked by the recent Princeton study that declares we’re clients of an Oligarchy, not citizens of a Democracy. After a bracing audio clip by George Carlin, Ellen traces how the seeds of American Oligarchy were planted centuries ago by our financially-enforced subservience to the money elite. These seeds have now become a thick forest of obfuscation about the nature of money and our ability to create and control it -- Ellen talks with author and professor Carl Herman about how to break through the mythology of money. And co-host Walt McRee talks with Ira Dember of CommonomicsUSA about their initiative to create a monetary awakening for America’s mayors.

Dangerous stressors are converging around the growing demands for water the world over. Corporations and private capital are positioning themselves to take control as environmental changes turn humanity’s most essential element into just another commodity for profiteers. Why aren’t affordable alternatives being pursued? Might this even be intentional? The usual culprits behind the monetary curtain are all here ready to let you drink, if you pay them. Ellen speaks with Roger Landry on possible reasons.

That’s how Paul Craig Roberts, our guest once again this week, describes how the financial powers of Wall Street have so dramatically changed the world he knew when working with Ronald Reagan back in the 1980’s  An outspoken critic and observer of government, history and American institutions, Roberts provides bracing insights into what’s going on around us in a world of opaque power centers and political illusions.  He looks back on how Wall Street influence has rolled over the ability of government to serve public interests, consolidated industries like media and banking, and left us all susceptible to a grand plan to turn public assets into mere financial instruments for payment of bank debt.

Things are frequently not as they appear, there being a veil of secrecy and intrigue around matters of finance and state. Few people know better than this week's guest Dr. Paul Craig Roberts what is, and was, going on behind the headlines of global developments.  A former member of the Reagan Administration, editor of the Wall Street Journal and noted author, Ellen talks with him at length about what's happening with global finance and the shaking foundations of the EU.

20428_340.jpgOur neighbors to the north may be on the verge of actually breaking a grip of Global Banksters on their economy. A recent court ruling upholds the litigation path for a lawsuit that intends to force the Bank of Canada to return to its original charge of providing debt-free money for public purposes. The suit also claims that the money elite at the IMF, BIS and FSB had intentions to take de facto control of the government by controlling its monetary policy. It’s such an important development that the government is squashing press coverage.  Ellen talks with one of the most knowledgeable observers about the case, while co-host Walt McRee revisits the evergreen truths of young Victoria Grant’s video-viral speech about the Bank of Canada.

When financial fundamentals such as unilateral currency fluctuations, reversal of system-wide banking policies, and entire nations withdrawing from monetary partnerships suddenly begin to change -- well, you’d better pay attention to what you think is nailed down around you. Ellen reports on what these changes mean and speaks with well-known commentator and media host Greg Hunter about the dynamics playing out in the global world of banking. And then there is personal change: can opening oneself up to powerful new personal roles affect public policy changes?  Co-host Walt McRee talks with RESULTS founder Sam Daley-Harris about his work motivating hundreds of thousands of individuals to realize their power in driving social change.

When economic towers collapse, effects are felt. In the case of the recent, sudden and significant drop in oil prices, pain may reverberate around the world as major financial institutions are put at significant risk of failure. And then there is the fallout from bank failures that become stratagems for global bankers to take new control of countries. Ellen examines these important developments and talks with Irish political leader Mark Dearey who is actively supporting creation of public banks to help recover from virtual extortion by global bankers. And co-host Walt McRee talks with economy-reformer Marc Armstrong about his new “Commonomics” initiative that aims to unify citizen activism to protect and support public assets.
