    something is wrong with the sound. i can’t hear anything. is this being jammed by a right wing think tank?

  • By Christopher, November 19, 2010 @ 10:38 pm

    LOL! Did I just see you on Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura??? OMG I love your book. I have bought about 10 copies of it and given it to various people. Also I find you a lot more credible than Jim Marrs.

    Respect from Denver.

  • By Doug, November 24, 2010 @ 10:50 pm

    Saw you on Ventura’s show. Well done. Lew Rockwell had it as a post. FoS is great – keep it up Mr. Baker. Even an old Libertarian crank like me is a fan.

    I just finished this book. Now I’m wondering how many of these shadow gov’t people are working in and around the Obama administration. They really have no shame.

    Question for Russ: Was there a Bush family connection to the overturned verdict of the Neuremberg court regarding Alfred Krupp.John J. McCloy, OSS officer, Wall Street Lawyer, appealed on behalf of Krupp, whose Krupp family holdings had been forfeited.In addition Krupp was given a life jail sentence for war crimes, including the use of slave labor. Everything was returned to Krupp and his family. Is McCloy dealt with in your book?

    Been delving into Family of Secrets. Definitely interesting stuff.

    I just finished reading Kingfish Mafia: Carlos Marcello and the Assassination of John F. Kennedy by John H. Davis. Much of what I’ve read in that one nearly goes hand-in-hand w/ the JFK info in FAS.

    Just finished your book and feel a combination of hopelessness and helplessness. What can we do? Look where I am from! (4th generation, no less)We have a governor who is trying to gut our public education system and any agency that helps the needy. I feel like the people in your book hijacked my state! I am trying to think of one person to pass your book on to and have come up with just one. Perhaps one candle in the darkness is enough. Thank you for your courage to expose these people. I find myself asking over and over and over – how much money is enough? Why does anyone need so much when there as so many who need just a little?

  • By Russ Baker, June 19, 2011 @ 2:48 pm

    Molly and others–thanks for your thoughtful comments and support. We can take solace in the fact that accurate information itself is a disinfectant. first we educate the public, positive change will come after.

    Great job on the book. My interest in this book was generated by the many unanswered questions surrounding the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings. There were just too many gaps left open for this to have been orchestrated by Osama bin Laden and crew without some people looking the other way. Since Bush would not consent to being questioned without Cheney, and on the record, I figured I needed to learn more about bush to perhaps understand 9/11. Your book came at the right time. I’d like to see another focusing on the connections between Osama bin Laden, his extended family, and the Bushes. Anything happening along those lines?

    I did 3 tours in IRAQ. I saw no WMD nor oil being taken back to the USA. What I did see were many American service members sitting in the greenzone while private compaines KBR, Halliburton, titan, etc.. were paying people anywhere from 100-400K to do jobs us servicemembers coudl have done and should have. In addition billions have been lost… Thanks for being a HERO!

    Read your book a month or two ago. Somehow I missed seeing this video until now. Two thumbs up for each.

    Listening to your February 2012 interview with Craig Barnes (http://whowhatwhy.com/2012/02/12/russ-baker-on-deep-history-and-little-known-origins-of-current-problems) gave me a perspective on Family of Secrets that I hadn’t noticed while reading it. In the interview, you elaborated on some of the connections (and the implications of those connections) that in the book you related as a series of facts. I may not be explaining this well, but I hope you understand what I’m trying to say.

    Keep up your valuable investigative work.

    I am currently reading your book and it is proof that “Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a bit, but it is not going away.”

    It is diffcult to understand the mindset of these people whose only ambition is to gain money and power at the expense of their fellow human beings.

    Yes!Finally someone writes about Gardenia.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about
    worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could
    take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    When using such a solution, you will be asked to talk about the events that affected you in the year, marriage, new baby, move to a new house,
    started college, changed employment status, etc. Educating these customers in how
    to handle their tax affairs in the future can save
    them many thousands of dollars. Avoid hype or
    gimmicks and let people know exactly what to expect and what they are required to do in order to
    receive what they are being offered.

    Tanning allows you to experiment with different styles and looks.
    Now apply your basic lotion again, to the areas mentioned before.
    However, with all those plucking and re-growing of eyebrows, the hair follicles could be damaged causing
    it to stop from growing back.
