Vanity Fair profiles The eXile: "Gutsy...visceral...serious journalism...abusive, defamatory...poignant...paranoid...and right!"

Broke the Koch Brothers' Takeover of America
eXiled Radio / February 1, 2010
By Team eXiled

Mark Ames appeared on the great Chuck Mertz radio program “This Is Hell” straight out of Chicago. They discuss blood-sucking bankers, the plusses and minuses of inhaling nitrogen gas, and why it’s all so fucking hopeless that we may as well join hedge funds ourselves.

Mark Ames is the author of Going Postal: Rage, Murder and Rebellion from Reagan’s Workplaces to Clinton’s Columbine.

    In your forthcoming book on the Right, Mark, be sure to make mention of the Old Right–those non-interventionist, actual free-marketers who were supplanted by fusionism and then by the neocons.

    @ 45.30. Iran-Contra – The most courageous, and there weren’t very many; those who stood up, were targeted and weren’t re-elected. (Including Senator Church). Government funds used to defeat those attacking Oliver North’s crowd and the secret government inside the government.

    “So you’re not going to get a very courageous opposition. I don’t want to attack Obama because he’s tried to do some things, but obviously he’s moved cautiously and he’s backtracked on quite a few of the things that he said he would do. That’s because you don’t mess with the CIA. And I think everybody who survives in Washington knows how dangerous it is to do that.”

    Even if PDS’s use of ‘CIA’ is a catch-all for those groups within the elite and their moonlighting muscle from DIA, NSA’s Central Security, Energy, State and the other of fifteen known, and how many more unknown, US security outfits, and the divided factions and allegiances within them; making up the planet’s weirdest Outer Limits zoo of alien animals that spend most of their days fighting each other, rather than foreigners. Dysfunctional? HA! The understatement of the 20th century. Ask JFK.

    @47.15 PDS – “Not all of the cat is out of the bag, by the way. You can see the general outlines of what she was talking about and it isn’t by any means all in this American Conservative article because I’ve been tracking her very closely and communicated with her. And, eh, she is sitting on something that could, if fully disclosed, I think would not just tell us what is happening now, but would cast a great deal of light on the deep history of our country in the last fifty years.”

    Stephen Lendman – “So she has some very, very hot stuff that she is sitting on.”

    “The big new element is she has been backed in a lot of what she has been saying by a senior official of the FBI, in her area, at a much higher level than herself.”

    Go to 2009 archives and find Peter Dales Scott – October 5th 2009 @42.50. –


    Interviewer “But, I mean, it leaves intact the whole criminal structure.” – Peter Dale Scott, 911, Left Gatekeepers, Zelikow. – @4.05

    _What_ criminal structure?

    2009 – 50 = 1959. Was 22nd November 1963 a coup d’etat? What groups were involved? Are they still here?


    A thumbnail history of the last thirty years in ten minutes as only a John Stockwell could do it — utterly candidly — prepare to be stunned. Based on the last twenty years we can _see_ that he was 100% correct. Utterly correct. Stunning. – 

    John Stockwell on the American Power Structure –

    Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, John Stockwell, Peter Dale Scott and now Mark Ames. All singing from the same hymn sheet. Ain’t the truth wonderful?

  • 3. BlottoBonVismarck  |  February 1st, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    As Ames, and Scott say, it could indeed be much, much worse. Which is why Scott does not want to attack Obama.

    Got full blown Fascism??? Wait a bit. The pinheads of the Republican party will certainly try to give it to US.

    The ad on this very page says: “Stop Obama Care”. I guess google ads is not that sophisticated to check the content of the website where they place the ads on. What’s next? Selling swastika and neo-nazi gear on the JPost website? Bacon advertisement on arab newssites?

  • 5. matt  |  February 1st, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    Why does the video stop at about 30 mins in?

  • 6. Diet Coke  |  February 1st, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    How long are we gonna cry about how the evil conservatives started destroying the world before we were even born?

    Your country is what you make. Democracy is the law you make. Go out and make it.

  • 7. homero  |  February 1st, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    I wanna know where Brecher is, too. But, hey, I really enjoyed this interview. Ames has a much more manly voice than Dolan.

    slo mo – The internet is becoming a parody of itself. It’s amazing, watching the effective censorship shutting things down. The latest trick I’ve seen is taking stories written in say 2005 or 2003, etc and slapping a new dateline on them, 2010. This is major news outlets. it’s so difficult to post a comment on sites, it’s hard to find any site that effectively allows comments at all. Links tend to end in 404’s and that’s after all the viruses and bugs have crashed your browser or computer and you’ve been foolish enough to go back and try.

    The Internet is dying, and when it finally winks out, it’ll have become so minimally useful that no one will care.

  • 9. Alex_C  |  February 1st, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Since there’s no way in Hell we’ll be able to listen to that program, how about a link to a transcript? Or an address we can write to, to get it on tape or something?

    All this modern shit is dying.

    Funny how it stops right before he tells us where Gary is.

  • 11. Dmac  |  February 2nd, 2010 at 12:45 am

    Ames, what was the answer to the Brecher question? I think we all want to know.

  • 12. wYSeGuy  |  February 2nd, 2010 at 4:24 am

    Alex_C cool it kiddo. Your middle school nihilism and that of the rest of the commentors on this blog is very annoying.

    Every thing is there, you just need to be persistent. It took three seconds of googling and clicking to find this:

    The comments on Gary Brecher begin sometime like 2 Hrs 53 Mins into the podcast.

    I cannot listen to this, I’m gonna be sick

  • 14. homero  |  February 2nd, 2010 at 7:12 am

    just for out the 10 bux a month for broadband internet, dude. not that hard.

  • 15. Robert D  |  February 3rd, 2010 at 6:22 pm

    It’s pretty funny how it just cuts out before we find out what’s happened to the War Nerd.

    Now we know the Exile is just fuckin’ wit’ us.

    Anyway, here’s the deal: The reason we haven’t had any new material from either Dolan or the War Nerd lately is ’cause Dolan is hard at work preparing a new book (as the War Nerd) that will blow everybody away when it comes out.

    Wishful thinking?

    Robert you are retarded.

    I’ll repeat it for you;

    @ wYSeGuy

    I saw your link the first time, numbnuts. Maybe you thought you’d get a pat on the head for posting it up again?

    As far as being retarded goes, you are apparently unaware whether what you are reading is supposed to be taken seriously or not. Is a piece of your brain missing?
