Dr. Michael Hudson is a financial economist and historian. Bonnie Faulkner interviewed him for KPFA radio’s Guns and Butter program on October 9th, 2008. If you want the real deal about the 850 billion dollar fleecing of America that is the Wall Street bailout, this is it. And as Dr. Hudson points out, 850 billion is only the beginning. The purveyors of this unprecedented fraud are actually looking to roll us for trillions of dollars.

I guarantee you will not see or hear this interview in the mainstream media. Please share it with as many people as you can. This information is incredibly important.

Michael Hudson is not some airbrushed, jello-brained MSM pundit. He actually knows what he’s talking about, and he’s telling it like it really is. Henry Paulson and the rest of the criminals raiding our treasury must be stopped. They are quite intentionally trying to destroy our country.

Key excerpts are featured here, but you should really listen to the entire interview, which you can find on Dr. Hudson’s website, to which you will find a link below.

Again, please pass this information on to as many people as you can.
