1937: Putin Can Destroy NATO, Paul Craig Roberts, So Long, California, Housing Inventory Shortage, Twitter Files
"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." That statement, made by Orson Wells in his book 1984, which was written back in 1948, rings absolutely true especially with the release of the recent Twitter Files!
The possibility of a perpetual source of clean energy, has given Jason a bit of hope as he declares a statement he hasn't made in a long while (given all the censorship and political climate, among other things): "It's an amazing time to be alive!" And a move by a county to secede from California and the shortage of housing inventory has definitely made things more interesting!
And today, Jason talks with the co-founder of Reaganomics, Paul Craig Roberts. Together, they discuss some of the international threats that could face America, thanks to the recent actions from Washington. Specifically, they deal with issues of demography, currency and military developments in Russia and China and consider the potential impact of each of these on the United States. Note: This conversation was originally recorded in 2014 and shows how timely Mr. Roberts' comments are.

And at the risk of offending some listeners... Merry Christmas! Or if you prefer, Happy Holidays!
