This week’s interview with the brilliant investigative journalist Whitney Webb seeks to help the Solari audience understand how America really works. Whitney and I go beyond Hollywoodized depictions of mustachioed mafiosi and sneaky spies to show that organized crime—and its fusion with intelligence agencies and central banking—is America’s fundamental industry.
As we noted a few weeks ago when we named Whitney our Hero of the Week, her remarkable new two-volume book, One Nation Under Blackmail, represents a feat of “undeniable serious scholarship that allows everybody to understand that this country is managed and run by organized crime.” The book is essential reading for understanding post-WWII developments in the U.S., in particular—the events that followed the passage of the National Security Act of 1947 and the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949 that together gave birth to the CIA and the black budget.
In addition to examining the rise of and the roles played by the “usual suspects”—dynasties like the Rockefellers, families like the Bushes, Clintons, and Maxwells, and entities like the Harvard Corporation—Whitney maps the intimate relationships that I believe were critical to the financial coup d’état that led to the 2007-2008 financial crisis, $21 trillion in “missing money,” and the compromise of our sovereignty today. In this way, she provides the context for understanding how a figure like Jeffrey Epstein fits into the bigger picture of government secrecy and criminality that touch our lives every day.
Whitney Webb’s intelligent, courageous, and hard-hitting journalism is one of the reasons we are so optimistic about the New Media. Join us Thursday to learn more about how Whitney decided to venture down this particular “rabbit hole”!
