This Week With JB & SFC

Wed, Jul 27, 2016 - 10:14am

With Russia and Putin now being blamed for everything from hacked emails to fruit fly infestations, last evening's JBSFC became a must listen for anyone searching for truth and honesty.

As you know, The New Cold War is the most dangerous period in world history since The Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. Not only are these weekly discussions between Mr. Batchelor and Professor Cohen necessary for understanding the evolving risks, they're also a must listen for anyone seeking an honest discussion, outside of the standard mainstream War Party line.

Please be sure to listen this week and every week as we attempt to stay on top of this very volatile situation.

Be sure to listen

PLEASE be sure to listen to at least the first segment. Keep in mind that, from a political perspective, Professor Cohen has always been a Democrat and that his wife is a powerful figure in the NY media.

So let's see

The US could either partner with countries like Russia and fight real threats like ISIS


The US War Party can back Russia into a corner in the hope of starting WW3.

Which is better?

Good Morning All

Turd, I am trying to stay happy, but I will listen. Some times all the shit going on gets me way down.

Download JB show as podcast / mp3 file ?

Some time back someone kindly posted how one could download this (John Batchelor Show) as a podcast / mp3 file - like we could before this change in presentation. Unfortunately I have forgotten how and would greatly appreciate it if someone could / would remind me.

Many thanks

I don't understand these candlesticks in silver at 07:36 and 08:20 where the "open" is $0.00 on the 1 minute chart.

Can anyone enlighten me?

This is brilliant

Ole Turd is not a single-issue voter...However, avoiding WW3 is a significant single issue.

I've been posting these JBSFC discussion for 30 months now, all in the desperate attempt to educate and warn everyone that The War Party in the West was desperately setting up war with Russia as a prop. Look, Putin is no angel and I have no desire to live in Russia, but if Turd was running for POTUS, I would be saying the exact same thing. Make Russia an ally in the global fight against Islamic terrorists. Fuck Saudi and all of their bullshit. We need to find new friends and forge new alliances if we, as a country, are going to survive and prosper in the 21st century.

Jul 27, 2016 - 1:32pm

Ihaven't listened yet.

I'm going to go pick up some phyzz and load the boat for a slight

Jul 27, 2016 - 2:53pm

@ this is brilliant

the thing about a US election that 99.99999999% of Americans don't get is how it affects the rest of the world.

out of 330 million people all the best that comes up is Clinton or Trump? FFS!!!!! How low can it go?

i'll give the Trumpster one thing, that he is at least willing to speak to Putin and negotiate.....whereas Hitlary calls him hitler and reserves the right for a nuclear first strike!

America.....YOUR CHOICE!

We in the rest of the world hope you make the right might be the death of us all or our the right thing PLEASE, as I see it this election is not just about you...

Jul 27, 2016 - 7:35pm

this show

I started listening this year and now expect it every Wed..and am grateful for it.

I posted the link on jellystone board.

I tell people many US corporations and wealthy individuals backed Hitler..

Stops them in their tracks. I also correct fascism and say it's Gov and Business

(corporations) working together..and I ask if war are they going to be part of the front line?

some days I am nice and other days I can't believe the thoughtlessness of people

Jul 27, 2016 - 8:36pm



so does this make Trump followers traitors...this is so over the cliff...

Democrats Question "Loyalty To US" Of "Treasonous, Traitor" Trump

In a full court propaganda press, enabling by a liberal media that can read polling data as well as anyone else, the 'wild conspiracy theory' that Donald Trump coordinated with Putin to hack and expose DNC emails (that prove the level of rigging and collusion that is too much to bear for many democracy-seeking citizens) has now become confirmed fact... entirely lacking any actual facts. In a desperate bid to regain the narrative, as any convention bounce is erased for Hillary Clinton, her surrogates, as The Hill reports, have now stepped it up, calling Trump "treasonous" and a "traitor," questioning "his loyalty to America."

@Owtovit - Trump - 2:53pm post

Owtovit - don't be won-over by the disinformation that is being pumped out by the MSM - that would have you believe that Trump is anything less than the perfect person to lead the USA (and the World) out of the ZioCon quagmire in which we find ourselves. He is intelligent, has a supremely successful track record at the coal-face of business, he has guts, he is single-minded, he is determined, he is resilient, he is hard-working, he is a leader ----- as I say, the PERFECT person for the job of overturning the disgusting lot we have running America and the Western World at the moment.

Trump for President - with absolute conviction and confidence.

A whiles back I thought Trump would be OK, have serious doubts now, Pence for running mate......mmmmmmmm, how can you pick a guy that supports the things you say you are against...E.g. NAFTA...... Also a supporter of the banks and bailouts, just another bought and paid for shill?......IMO pence is there to carry on the elites dirty work when Trump Gets knocked off.

look they are all blowhards who say big things but once they get in they show their their true fealty to their overlords

Ron Paul 2016!

@Owtovit - Pence - shill

Indeed Owtovit - Pence as Veep concerns me - especially if they bump Trump off. But, at this stage, what else do we do? It's Killary or Trump.

I'm rather hoping for the whole system to collapse and the World to come to its senses (through the good offices of this new-fangled internet thing) and vote for a gold / silver / bitcoin standard (and not the SDR, which would just be a repeat of the dollar fiasco post 1913)

Having lived in KY in the 90's, I am very familiar with Pence. He is a very typical Midwest (Indiana) conservative. Big on the Bible, as most are in that area and expects everyone else to live by it's rules. He is more militaristic that I prefer and his votes on trade reflect the farming and manufacturing export economy of Indiana. The only good thing is that he was a Tea Party leader.

They Pence play was to give the Don legitimacy with the uber conservative crowd, as they are night and day on trade/military/social issues=drugs and abortion.

B and C get it right for once

This is the first time I've been able to get all the way through one of these things. The Russian analysis tracks reliably with the facts. Nice to have Cohen stay on point and not off on some wonky tangent. I usually listen to my point of tolerance.

Latest from the "Think Tanks"


Just to add to what you are seeing...

I don't have enough "Juice" to get invited to CFR events but am fortunate to be able to attend Chicago Council of Foreign Affairs and Aspen Institute Events.

General Curtis Scaparrotti spoke at the recent Aspen Security Forum.

You may be interested to see the presentation while it is still out there on the web.

14:00 - apparently forward deployed forces are a defensive move... We would apparently sacrifice "Chicago and Aspen" for the Balkans...

44:00 - missile shield discussion - apparently Russia is naive to think we would ever change a minor program and modify our missiles to first strike capability. "The system can be used in an offensive capability". The general did a nice "recovery" to the miss-speak.

I was fortunate to be able to bring the family to the event - reviewed the recent Putin video with them reviewing Putin's frustration with western media. Had to explain to them that troops are NEVER forward deployed for defensive positions.

We do live in interesting times.
