    User Clip: Or - Mutual (Global) Nuclear Disarmament?

    Question by retired U.S. Customs agent Karl Golovin and responses between 1:39:49 and 1:40:40 of the event. Recalling that in the early 1960's the Joint Chief's of Staff recommended that President Kennedy launch a preemptive nuclear attack on the Soviet Union (JFK obviously declined, responding rhetorically "...and we call ourselves the human race.."), it is suggested that perhaps we are again at a point in time where mutual (global) nuclear disarmament - rather than expansion - is the best available alternative.

    User Clip: The "Petro-Dollar" as a Basis for Conflict

    Questions by retired U.S. Customs agent Karl Golovin, responses by retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn. Golovin noted that since abandoning its Bretton Woods obligation to back the U.S. Dollar with gold, the dollar has been essentially backed by agreements (militarily enforced) that all OPEC oil is priced/sold only in U.S. Dollars. Iraq broke with that deal by selling its oil for Euros prior to the 2003 U.S. invasion. Before assassination, Muammar Gaddafi intended to begin conducting his nation's oil transactions using only newly minted Libyan "gold dinar" coins, rather than irredeemable U.S. Dollars. Golovin also recalled U.S. export of missiles to Iran under Reagan (Iran Contra) and personal experience (circa 1994, in the prosecution of Ireland's Tom McGuinn for trade with Iran; learning 15 years later that McGuinn thereafter engaged in over $100 Million trade with Iran, Golovin ponders "who facilitated that?"

    User Clip: Rome's Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln - Brigadier General Thomas Harris

    Brigadier General Thomas Harris served on the military commission that investigated and prosecuted conspirators in Lincoln's assassination. In 1897, he published "Rome's Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln," in which he assigned ultimate responsibility for Lincoln's murder to the hierarchy - including the Jesuit (military) Order - of the Roman Catholic Church. On the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's assassination, in front of Ford's Theatre, Karl Golovin ( displayed, beneath an American flag, a sign (and distributed 4x6 cards) depicting the front and back covers of Great Mountain Publishing's recent, verbatim reprint of Harris' historical text, which also includes an appendix of excerpts from Lincoln confidant Charles Chiniquy's 1886 book ("50 Years in the Church of Rome") recounting conversations and his relationship with Lincoln (ISBN 978-0-9832627-9-4).
