“Dirty Harry” Reid (D) NV, is said to be preparing to bring the Keystone Pipeline bill to the floor of the senate this coming week. No doubt the offices and votes of numerous senators are now in play as the oil money pours in. Every senator wants their piece of the big oil pie. Meanwhile, the lobbyists for the cartels are swarming the District of Criminals like a hoard of voracious ants, consuming one senate vote after another.

DIRTY HARRYIn the public sector, one side is convinced that devastating the environment, contaminating water sheds and supplies, continuous “spills”, chronically leaking pipelines, horrendous air pollution, the theft of land from the states is all just fine as long as they get cheap gas at the pump. They are equally convinced that the relentless drilling and pumping is going to make us less dependent on foreign oil. Most are totally unaware of our agreement with OPEC and fail to realize that as we pump millions of gallons of crude of various grades a day from the thousands of wells currently operating and which we have done aggressively for more than 50 years, constantly increasing the number and size of wells here in the US, we can never seem to escape the “foreign oil” specter.

 Ms. Baker, is it fine with you to kick off this interview with a little historical talk?

 

Certainly.

Okay, then seen from a historical point of view: are there similarities that you observe between the era of the Great Depression and the financial / economic crisis of our time?

 

Not only are there similarities, but in my opinion, we are in the beginning stages of the Second Great Depression. Anyone who reads the work of Ellen Brown, Chris Martenson, Kevin Phillips, Catherine Austin Fitts, Bob Chapman, John Williams, or Michael Hudson, knows that it is only a matter of time until the gargantuan debt bubble created in the past two decades will explode in the coming years or months, resulting in global economic cataclysm. In tandem with this collapse will be massive food shortages and an unprecedented crisis in food production worldwide. More
