Alex Jones - It's time to wake up

Alex Jones is a journalist, a broadcaster and a film maker. He hosts a radio show and has produced several documentaries on the New World Order (NWO). His passion for uncovering and fighting against government corruption can be seen as an inspiration or a threat depending on how much you care about the state of the world today. Below is a short speech of him followed by a few questions and answers.

Secret Government

There's an excellent documentary by Bill Moyers about the Secret Government of the United States. It looks a bit outdated but it's still a pretty good picture of what's going on today. It saddens me how nothing seems to have changed.

The film is split into two parts - Part I and Part II - make sure you watch both.

Solariso Alegre

Hoje, mais uma vez me surpreendi com a pequenes deste mundo. Numa das minhas pesquisas de informação acerca dos candidatos á Presidencia da Republica fui dar com uma página que muito me apelou. Esta foi uma rara e agradável dupla surpresa onde encontrei, um link para o blog de um "velho" colega de universidade. O blog do Pedro, o qual recomendo uma visita, chama-se Solariso e é principalmente dedicado ao meio ambiente.

A página onde encontrei o link foi na página de blogs do site de Manuel Alegre.

"Mário Soares começou por dizer que eu não tinha o apoio das pessoas importantes. Para mim todas as pessoas são importantes e resta saber quem é que foi rejeitado", afirmou Manuel Alegre.

American empire (not) in denial

"We have about 60 per cent of the world's wealth but only 6.3 per cent of its population. Our real task in the coming period (will be) to maintain this position of disparity. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford the luxury of altruism and world benefaction ... the day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are hampered then by idealistic slogans the better."
~ George Kennan, head of U.S. State Department Planning, Feb 24, 1948.

"Everyone has the right to be like Americans, it would seem. Now that they're like Rome, the Americans would be doing as the Romans did. America may be like Rome, but many Americans are not like Romans. And Bush himself is more cowboy than Caesar."

"...if you look at what the US has long tried to do - expand the global reach of free markets and ultimately representative government - it bears an uncanny resemblance to what he characterises as the project of Victorian Imperialism."
