53-minute radio interview: Carl Herman explains US lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, requirement of arrests if America is to be a republic with a president rather than empire under dictators, $1,000,000 per household game-changing economic breakthroughs

Rense radio’s Raw Deal’s Professor Emeritus James Fetzer (University of Minnesota at Duluth) 53-minute interview with me:

Documentation and discussion:

A “great” America has at least these three required policies:

  1. End lie-started and unlawful Wars of Aggression.
  2. Arrest Left and Right .01% War Criminals and .01% trillions-looting banksters.
  3. Enact monetary reform and public banking for ~$1,000,000 per US household benefits.

Because the documented facts are Emperor’s New Clothes obvious, any US leader, including Trump as president must stop the worst crime a nation’s military Commander-in-Chief can commit, arrest those who engaged in them, arrest banksters for fundamental fraud with tens of trillions in damages, and enact obvious economic reforms.

If Trump as US President will not act for these three policies, he must join those arrested for ongoing US crimes killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions.

Without arrests for the worst crimes a nation can commit, the US must be categorized as an empire under dictatorship rather than a republic with a law-enforcing executive branch led by a President. Anyone confused on this point would fail fundamental lessons taught beginning in elementary school.

In documented detail:

1. End lie-started and unlawful Wars of Aggression

Hillary Clinton belongs in prison now for her principal roles in ongoing lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression as a vocal US Senator, the top US representative with other nations as Secretary of State, and two-time presidential candidate.

These crimes (as well as running a rogue State Department with illegal and non-secure e-mails she lies about) are indeed Emperor’s New Clothes obvious:

Clinton is therefore a leading War Criminal for what the US has become: a rogue state.

Donald Trump is already a candidate for prison for supporting the US Orwellian-illegal wars, increasing torture (promising to do “much worse” than waterboarding), threatening Iran (and steal $150 billion from them), supporting Israel’s War of Aggression, and upholding a “Bozo Democracy” of unaccountable voting machines. While Trump hints at something wrong with “leadership,” he supports its worst crimes. This said, the truth will set humanity free, with admiration for anyone having a “Scrooge conversion.”

Importantly, humanity will understand the pressure people have faced under blackmail, including threats to assassinate as was done by the .01% rogue state to Martin King and President Kennedy (best known among ~100 key assassinations).

For further explanation and documentation of this first of our three points, please see here.

2. Arrest Left and Right .01% War Criminals and .01% trillions-looting banksters

Importantly, it’s explicit and required under our government that if officials act beyond Constitutional limits of authority that they face impeachment and/or arrest (and here) to lawfully stop their crime and remove them from exercising further power for unlawful acts. This is basic and required citizen knowledge.

The categories of crime for lie-started Wars of Aggression include:

  1. Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
  2. Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.
  3. Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).

US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

Let’s consider the crimes of bankster looting in contrast with reforms in our last point in some detail. With such benefits, you literally have nothing more valuable for your attention:

3. Enact monetary reform and public banking for ~$1,000,000 per US household benefits.

The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly. Fed Chair Janet Yellen publicly acknowledges monetary reform as described below, but continues a history of criminal fraud in her lawful fiduciary responsibility to truthfully provide what you’re about to read. The data below include evidence of a .01% oligarchy criminally looting tens of trillions of our dollars.

Monetary reform is the creation of debt-free money by government for the direct payment of public goods and services. Creating money as a positive number is an obvious move from our existing Robber Baron-era system of only creating debt owed to privately-owned banks (a negative number) as what we use for money. Our Orwellian “non-monetary supply” of adding negative numbers forever causes today’s tragic-comic increasing and unpayable total debt. You learned these mechanics of positive and negative numbers in middle school, and already have the education and life experience to conclude with Emperor’s New Clothes absolute certainty that accelerating total debt is the opposite of having money. As a National Board Certified and Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teacher, I affirm this is also exactly what is taught to all economics students.

The public benefits of reversing this creature of Robber Barons are game-changing and near-instant. We the People must demand these, as .01% oligarchs have no safe way to do so without admission of literal criminal fraud by claiming that debt is its opposite of money.

The top 3 game-changing benefits of monetary reform:

  1. We pay the national debt in proportion to removing private banks’ ability to create what we use for money as debt in order to prevent inflation. We retire national debt forever.
  2. We fully fund infrastructure that returns more economic output than investment cost for triple upgrades: the best infrastructure we can imagine, up to full-employment, and lower overall costs.
  3. We stop the ongoing Robber Barons who McKinsey’s Chief Economist documents having ~$30 TRILLION in tax havens, and the Fed finding the US top seven banks creating shell companies to hide $10 trillion. This amount is about 30 times needed to end all global poverty, which has killed more people since 1995 than all wars and violence in all human history.

Public banking creates at-cost and in-house credit to pay for public goods and services without the expense and for-profit interest of selling debt-securities. North Dakota has a public bank for at-cost credit that results in it being the only state with annual increasing surpluses rather than deficits.

Top 3 game-changing benefits of public banking:

  1. a state-owned bank could abundantly fund all state programs and eliminate all taxes with just a 5% mortgage and credit card.
  2. a state-owned bank could create in-house and at-cost credit to fund infrastructure. This cuts nominal costs in half because, as you know, selling debt securities typically doubles the cost. For example, where I live we’re still dismantling the old Bay Bridge in NoCal from the upgrade that cost $6 billion, but the debt-service costs will add another $6 billion when it’s all paid.
  3. CAFRs (Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports) stash “rainy day” funds no longer required with a credit line from a public bank. In addition, the so-called “retirement funds” currently deliver net returns of just a few percent on good years, and negative returns on bad years (herehere). California’s ~14,000 various government entities’ CAFRs have a sampled-data total estimate of $8 trillion in surplus taxpayer assets ($650,000 non-disclosed assets per household, among California’s ~12.5 million households).

$1,000,000 of benefits per US household:

  • California’s CAFR data of ~$650,000 of assets per household is evidence of huge cash assets of similar magnitude in every state.
  • Paying the US national debt of ~$18 trillion saves ~$180,000 per household.
  • Ending state taxes in California to pay a budget of ~$170 billion saves each household ~$15,000, with similar savings in every state.
  • ~$30,000 per household savings annually: the American public would no longer pay over $400 billion every year for national debt interest payments (because almost 30% of the debt is intra-governmental transfers, this is a savings of ~$300 billion/year). If lending is run at a non-profit rate or at nominal interest returned to the American public (for infrastructure, schools, fire and police protection, etc.) rather than profiting the banks, the savings to the US public is conservatively $2 trillion (1). If the US Federal government increased the money supply by 3% a year to keep up with population increase and economic growth, we could spend an additional $500 billion yearly into public programs, or refund it as a public dividend (2). This savings would allow us to simplify or eliminate the income tax (3). The estimated savings of eliminating the income tax with all its complexity, loopholes, and evasion is $250 billion/year (4). The total benefits for monetary reform are conservatively over three trillion dollars every year to the American public. Three trillion is $3,000,000,000,000. This saves the ~100 million US households an average of $30,000 every year. Another way to calculate the savings is to figure those amounts per $50,000 annual household income (for example, if your household earns $100,000/year, you save ~$60,000 every year with these reforms). This savings represents a 60% raise for every US household’s income.
  • Related, if the ~$30 trillion hidden in tax havens by the .01% have $10-$15 trillion from Americans, and we count the Federal Reserve report that the US top seven banks have over $10 trillion stored, then the average US household could clawback ~$200,000 to ~$250,000.

Famous Americans already on record for these reforms:

Please understand that I represent likely hundreds of thousands of professionals making factual claims with objective evidence anyone with a high school-level of education can verify.

The Emperor’s New Clothes obvious pathway out of these mechanics of our “debt system” is to start creating debt-free money (a positive number) for the direct payment of public goods and services, and create public credit for at-cost loans (a negative number). I have three academic papers to walk any reader through these facts; an assignment for high school economics students, one for Advanced Placement Macroeconomics students, and a paper for the Claremont Colleges’ recent academic conference:

Teaching critical thinking to high school students: Economics research/presentation

Debt-damned economics: either learn monetary reform, or kiss your assets goodbye

Seizing an alternative: Bankster looting: fundamental fraud that “debt” is “money”

Let’s examine just some of the facts of the current US economy that demonstrates its criminal status:

For Americans still zombiefied to “believe” in America, please embrace the reality that 40% of US children live at least one year of their lives in under-measured poverty, while oligarchs most responsible literally laugh in grandiose glee of the poverty they euphemise as “income inequality.” Please absorb this 1-minute reality check:

More game-changing economic data that confirm what we receive for economic leadership is literal criminal fraud:

15-minute video of obvious solutions: Mark Anielski and Ellen Brown’s powerful 15-minute response to an interview at the Seizing an Alternative conference (and here, with videos here) with former World Bank economist Herman Daly and co-author John B. Cobb of For the Common Good (video should start at 1:04:43):


1) Of $60 trillion total debt, a conservative current interest cost of 5% is $3 trillion every year. Two trillion dollars of savings if the profits are transferred to the American public rather than to the banking industry is probably low. St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank: https://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/TCMDO

2) The US GDP is ~$17 trillion. Three percent growth is moderately conservative.

3) Of the US Federal government’s ~$4 trillion annual budget, about $1.7 trillion is received from income tax.

    Please Carl,

    I had an encounter with Fetzer some years ago, and that guy could work a room.

    He said that anyone— maybe any idiot—could have seen on the Zapruder film, the chrome plated pistol that killed Kennedy, glinting in the sun, being fired by a Secret Service agent and none of his acolyte true believers even blinked or giggled.

    I stopped the play after your long pause, after Fetzer’s introductory statement, after his “research” statement to you.

    You deserve better. Much better.

    • Carl_Herman

      Hi Club,
      I appreciate anyone and everyone working to understand factual evidence, so thank you for your essential work and care for all humanity to the degree you engage in this work.

      Jim Marrs states, “We all know more together than any one of us alone.” My wife says, “Nobody has the truth. The trick is to take the elements of truth each has, use critical thinking, and find the best overall picture.”

      With the Kennedy assassination example, assuming in good faith what you report is true, Fetzer’s current writing of the summary has a different version than you report: http://www.und.edu/org/jfkconference/UNDchapter30.pdf

      If you just read that work of Fetzer’s, I’m sure you’ll see his contribution to our mutual work deserves respect. Fetzer is strong in stating that nobody should or needs to believe anyone, but to look to the evidence. That said, we all have blind spots, difficult aspects of our personalities, and of which it wouldn’t take much work for my own family to testify that I have, too.

      So, with all respect Club, if Jim Fetzer’s work isn’t helpful for you personally, that’s fine. If we counted all the people doing work to explain and document the facts of our most important topic, I’d guess we’re in the tens of thousands, so there are plenty of others to look to. And again, if you read the one link I provided, I’m sure you’ll agree that Jim’s work on the JFK assassination has powerful contributions.

      In closing, perhaps the strongest reason I emphasize the need for arrests of our “leaders” is because I conclude we’ll never ever ever ever have the truth of what has happened on our planet without them. With arrests and some safety (perhaps with Truth & Reconciliation), minions can come forth with evidence and testimony to begin the briefings we need to fully understand our history. This history is essential so humans won’t be continually played for fools and used as work animals.

        I listened to the whole podcast.

        Fetzer did it again.

        He claimed that Sanders was worked over by Hillary’s thugs as evidenced by the cut that “everyone” saw on his face and the “blood everywhere”.

        Anyway, nicely done Carl. You made your points in a very credible manner despite being interviewed by someone I can only respond to with incredulity.

        I once joked that when Dennis Kucinich was taken for a ride by Obama in Air Force One to persuade (or extort) him into providing the final vote needed to pass Obama Care and that Dennis was given the option (veiled threat) of either being on the airplane when it landed, or not.

        My “joke” referred to a CIA preferred method of assassination of tossing the victim out of an airplane over an ocean.

        I recognized the arm twisting by Obama that probably ended his career in the House, but I never claimed to have witnessed what I didn’t witness.

        There is credibility in representing the probable as speculation instead of claiming to have seen what one has imagined.

        The facts are terrible enough without the use of embellishment. I almost missed a valuable interview because of my experience with interviewer’s unreliability.

        Thanks for what you do, Carl.

  • Daniel “No Passport” Bruno

    You have to judge a
    book, an essay or an interview on its own and on the basis of the
    merits. Regardless of Fetzer’s erroneous beliefs, e.g. Armstrong didnt
    land on the moon, this interview was factual and on point. Look for what
    you have in common with others and you will build bridges faster than
    looking for flaws and errors.

    • ClubToTheHead

      I like Fetzer’s babies-tossed-out-of-the-incubator analogy.
