Dr. Roberts refers to his recent RT interview here:
Some background: CNN let go of Larry King – and replaced him with Piers – who has been, up until now, a ratings disaster. My guess is that Piers’ head has been removed from the media chopping block because his ratings are probably much higher. Get ratings first, ask questions later has been the mantra for MSM since the news department at CBS was killed to make room for game shows (watch “Quiz Show” by Robert Redford). This fight to displace Piers will suddenly make Piers part of the national and global debate and CNN loves that.
The Special Relationship
The UK and US have a ‘special relationship.’ Watch Oliver Stone’s recent film of his take on post WWII history for details. Churchill effectively threw the keys of Britain’s empire to the US in exchange for the US entering the war locking the destiny of these two. Together, Britain and America have ruled for centuries – some families on both sides of the Atlantic have enjoyed hundreds of years of benefits – and they have no intention of letting go of any power now (and they both like to mock France, the empire before Britain/America). When America invades a country it’s a given that Britain will join the fight: no questions asked. When Wall St. needs to launder a few trillion in toxic derivatives: the City obliges without hesitation. And unlike America’s ersatz wannabe heroes like Indian Jones and Luke Skywalker; Britain has a real flesh and blood hero – who just pulled in the biggest global box office in franchise history to lift the patriotic, my-government-come-what-may-spirits to new highs… Bond, James Bond.
The big story going forward will not be guns, Piers Morgan or a Constitutional crisis. The big story will be the next leg down of the global financial crisis: the bond bubble burst (and spiking interest rates).
