A fun exercise?

If you had the power, what would a 99% administration look like? Who would you place into some of these positions? Who has the integrity and natural talent to deserve being our public representatives?

What a Paul Craig Roberts Administration Would Look Like

Unless I am being spoofed, several hundred readers wrote me in as their selection for President. I am honored. Some asked if I were elected by write-ins and not instantly assassinated, who would I appoint?

An easy question to answer.

~Nomi Prins would be Secretary of the Treasury, and Pam Martens would be Deputy Secretary of the Treasury.

~Lew Rockwell would be the chairman of the Federal Reserve.

~Michael Hudson would be chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors.

~Glenn Greenwald would be Deputy Attorney General.

~Dean Booth and Larry Stratton would be White House legal counsels.

~Willie Nelson would be Secretary of Agriculture.

~Jeffrey St. Clair would be head of the Environmental Protection Agency.

~Elizabeth Warren would have whatever post she wants.

~Cynthia McKinney would be Secretary of State.

~The CIA would be headed by Ray McGovern and Philip Giraldi.

~The FBI would be headed by Sibel Edmonds.

~Homeland Security would be abolished.

~David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage would head the 9/11 investigation.

~Bradley Manning would be in charge of closing down the torture prisons.

~Julian Assange and John Pilger would be heads of the Public Broadcasting Corporation.

~Gerald Celente would be White House Press Secretary.

~John Williams (shadowstats.com) would be in charge of federal statistics.

~Key members of the Bush and Obama regimes from the president down, and every neoconservative would be handed over to the war crimes tribunal for trial.

~The Republicans on the Supreme Court would be impeached and removed from office.

~Brooksley Born would be in charge of all federal financial regulatory agencies.

~Major General Antonio Mario Taguba would be Secretary of Defense.

~Andrew Bacevich would be National Security Advisor

~Col. Lawrence Wilkerson would be Deputy Secretary of State.

~Ron Unz would be chief of staff of the White House.

~Norman Finkelstein would be US Ambassador to Israel.

~Noam Chomsky would be US Ambassador to the UN.

~David M. Walker would be Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

~The Israel Lobby would have to register as a foreign agent.

I could go on. There are two or three hundred appointments to fill, but I think the picture is clear. It would be an administration that represented Americans, not special interests and foreigners, and an administration that put the country back in order.

But, of course, it is all a dream. No one who actually cares about our country is permitted to serve in public office.

Nice List. I need to look up some of these people and see what they have been saying

[-] 1 points by Renneye (3781) 1 year ago

Thanks 'Ma'. I'd like to see Max Keiser on that list too. Here's his recent show where he mentions the Rolling Jubilee.

Yes. I like Terri Buehl. Max has some good ones I remember, but can't easily look up when I want to. RT doesn't search well. But guess I should look in Youtube.

[-] 1 points by Renneye (3781) 1 year ago

Here's Max Keiser's website. If you go to 'archives' at the top, all his episodes are there. Terri Buehl is new to me. I'll have to look in to it. Have a good night/day 'Ma'...its late...and my dreams beckon.

Omg 'Ma'! I can't believe I forgot to paste the link in! Sorry & Thanks!

'David Ray Griffin and Richard Gage would head the 9/11 investigation.' - IF they didn't get assassinated first! Hell their names could be on a 'secret kill list' right now and that list could be just that! I'm kidding - I think! 'Elizabeth Warren, anything she wants' is very funny but 'Brooksley Born would be in charge of all federal financial regulatory agencies.' should be carried our immediately but of course the bankers would never allow Obama to do that. I'm a big PCR fan so thank you for this post.

You're most welcome. I had to chuckle when I saw "Willie Nelson would be Secretary of Agriculture". He deserves it....he sure has paid his dues.

There are so many good people I can think of that could be on a list like this.

I think I would place the banksters in permanent positions of federal building toilet cleaners.

The oligarchs would be put on permanent graveyard duty...tending to the polishing of the gravestones of all the people they have killed.

'Norman Finkelstein would be US Ambassador to Israel' is another PCR nomination to note given the current situation. From another post - http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/12635-noam-chomsky-my-visit-to-gaza-the-worlds-largest-open-air-prison , which puts things in some perspective. Thank you for making me smile in these difficult times with your very nice post and PCR rocks!. Never Give Up! Go Occupy!

That was hilarious. Reminds me of some friends I've had.

Yeah. I hadn't heard it in a while and laughed my ass off after bringing up that clip. A classic to be, I'm sure.

In a fetal position, with drool on my chin . . .

Ahhh memories.

[-] 0 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Yeah, but from how long ago, heheheh.

[-] 1 points by NVPHIL (664) 1 year ago

Hah. My memories are from willie's pov. Passed out friend + Marker = Wonderful times for those still awake.

[-] 0 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Ahhh, those memories. Yeah, a lot of us have been on either side of that scenario, some of us both! It sure helps to have a good sense of humor.

[-] 1 points by NVPHIL (664) 1 year ago

I know. I feel bad for the humorless people in the world. I can't tell how many times just laughing at something made my day so much better.

[-] 1 points by Renneye (3781) 1 year ago

LOLOLOL!! Thanks 'gm'! Ahhh...I needed that.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6587) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

You're welcome. I think that's one of the funniest songs in recent memory. And personally, not only would I consider it an honor to 'indulge' with the man, it would be one of my fondest memories.

"~Gerald Celente would be White House Press Secretary."

hahaha. I would tune in every time.

[-] 2 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

Celente being involved would make the whole thing worth it..
