Guest: Robert Wenzel

On this edition of Traces of Reality Radio: Guillermo is joined by the editor and publisher of Economic Policy Journal, Mr. Robert Wenzel.  Guillermo and Robert discuss the attack by Al Shabaab of a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, within the broader context of AFRICOM, U.S. intervention (both past and ongoing) in Kenya, Somalia and Libya, and CIA proxy wars.

We also discuss HB 912 – Texas Privacy Act, which bans both the private and public use drones, while making exceptions for law enforcement and military use (effectively doing nothing at all to prevent the expansion of the surveillance state). Also, the Federal Reserve’s latest moves, what it means for the economy, and much more.
