“I know the cracks in the Western financial system better than the cracks in my own hand”
Is the upcoming United Nations vote to recognize Palestinian statehood a “grand deflection” to keep the world’s eyes off the true crisis of the moment, Iran? Claudia Rosett, Journalist-in-Residence at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, joins Frank to discuss the “raft of problems” associated with September’s UN General Assembly vote. To start with, the UN does not grant statehood. Rosett explains the resolution, which already failed in the Security Council earlier this year, is just the latest episode in a long propaganda campaign by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab League and the “usual gang” steering the UN’s agenda, to delegitimize Israel. “This is about squeezing Israel,” says the Pajamas Media columnist, and a “bid to create a terrorist state.”
Then, Congressman Louie Gohmert, of Texas, discusses the “now we run” strategy in Libya, where backing the rebel government is analogous to Jimmy Carter’s welcoming the Ayatollah Khomeini as a “man of peace.” “These are not people that like us,” says Rep. Gohmert. Although the sentiments in Libya are troubling, there are encouraging signs in the House of Representatives, where Gohmert sits, including a new bill to correspond our level of influence at the UN with our level of funding. The Congressman and former judge, also discusses President Obama’s Executive rule by waiver, “where the rule of law is tossed aside and it’s not equal application of the law, it’s who you know that gets you by,” he says.
Next, Frank welcomes back Patrick Byrne, of Overstock.com, to Secure Freedom Radio to give the bird’s eye view of economic warfare. Byrne explains the settlement system, designed 20 years ago to computerize our economy, built with inherit flaws that can be exploited by our enemies. Osama Bin Laden once said, “I know the cracks in the Western financial system better than I know the cracks in my own hand,” and Byrne details how Hamas, Hezbollah, the Russian mafia, Genovese and others have manipulated the market. Byrne, President and CEO of Overstock, documents the mortgage fraud schemes by al-Qaeda in 2008 and concludes by telling us what we can do to thwart this threat.
Finally, Contributing Editor of National Review Andy McCarthy discusses his latest column where he describes the descent of major cities in Europe into Islamicized enclaves. McCarthy describes the ideological falsehood that terrorism has no impetus behind it, which has guided these cities into “voluntary apartheid.” Malmo, Amsterdam, Rome and Brussels have all lost the sovereignty of their governments to Islam not by those acts of terrorism, but systematically by way of Civilization Jihad. Muslims are urged to relocate to the West, to not assimilate, what Turkey’s Prime Minister calls a “crime against humanity,” and to infiltrate its laws and bureaucracy. The former prosecutor and author of The Grand Jihad explains how the U.S. can avoid the same fate of Europe by coupling outreach with intelligence gathering like the NYPD has done so successfully in New York City.

This June, a merchant ship flying the Hong Kong flag and sailing under the name of the Atlantic called at the Mexican port of Lazaro Cardenas—the southern end of a trade corridor to the U.S., advertised as “the fastest route to the heart of North America.” That might be unremarkable, except the Atlantic, formerly called the Dreamland, and before that the Iran Saeidi, belongs to a curious network of 19 bulk carriers, all flagged out of Hong Kong and all blacklisted by the U.S. Treasury for their links to Iran.
“Excluding the heroic Americans who responded with courage and strength of steel when faced with one of the greatest tragedies in the history of the United States is not only unpatriotic, it’s disgraceful. We are remembering those who lost their lives on 9/11 and honoring those who ran into the burning buildings that catastrophic day. These brave men and women make up the heart of America.
