September 22, 2012 Archives/Pod Casts Hour 1 – Hour 2 – Hour 3
Hour 1: Loren J. Enns
Joining Amerika Now during the first hour of the show is computer engineer turned author Loren J. Enns to discuss his new book, The Sword of Liberty.
Enns says that “Our government is bankrupting America” and that “we can stop it by unleashing the Constitution’s greatest power!” Our government and politicians, both left and right, have failed us. Enns proposes a National Initiative Process that he believes could be used to stop our government from bankrupting America. He says this process is a way “with which the American people can attempt to seize destiny from the hands of our government and return representative democracy to the people while getting the money and privilege out of politics.”
We the American People and our Republic are suffering because of domination by the rich few and moneyed interests. Laws are made based on special interests, while public welfare is often set aside. Money not only talks, it rules. Corruption and collusion are running rampant, and the government and politicians, both left and right, are failing us. Without reform, there can be no real control of these moneyed interests; but until politicians stand up and are responsible to the people only, there will be no reform.
If we cannot trust those working within the system to fix it, is there another way? Did the Founding Fathers leave us an emergency Constitutional mechanism that could be used to both bypass the federal government and amend the Constitution if necessary?
Enns believes the Founding Fathers did leave us such a mechanism—Article V Convention, which could be used to establish a National Initiative Process and a National Recall Process. The National Initiative Process would allow us to vote directly on federal legislation, while the National Recall Process would allow us to fire and replace the President and members of Congress if necessary. Enns believes that “with these powers in hand, we could stop our politicians from bankrupting America.” He also believes that “with this power in hand, our representatives might just start representing us again.”
America is calling. Will we join one another in common cause and work together in the spirit with which this country was created, or will we shrink from the moment?

Hour 2: Robert Mazur
Former DEA Undercover Agent and author of The Infiltrator: My Secret Life Inside the Dirty Banks Behind Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel joins Amerika Now during the second hour to discuss money laundering.
Last month, members of a U.S. Subcommittee demanded that the CEO of Wal-Mart, Michael Duke, respond to accusations that the company fostered bribery, tax evasion and possible money laundering in Mexico. Henry Waxman and Elijah Cummings sent a formal request to Wal-Mart for the production of records relative “not only to bribery, but also to questionable financial behavior, including tax evasion and money laundering in Mexico.”
Robert will discuss the consequences Wal-Mart faces as a result of this alleged criminal conduct as well as other examples of “business as usual” for American-based global companies. He’ll also talk about the recent high-level arrest of members of the Sinaloa drug Cartel, which shut down a long planned “pipeline” for cocaine into the U.S.
Federal Agent Robert Mazur spent five years undercover as a money launderer to the international underworld, gaining access to the zenith of a criminal hierarchy safeguarded by a circle of dirty bankers and businessmen who quietly shape power across the globe. These men and women control multibillion-dollar drug-trafficking empires, running their organizations like public companies. Accountants, attorneys, and financial advisors, their roots run deep in their communities, and they are laundering billions of dollars a year, manipulating complex international finance systems to serve drug lords, corrupt politicians, tax cheats, and terrorists. In 1987, Mazur began infiltrating BCCI, the bankers behind the Medellín cartel. He meticulously gathered evidence for years until, during a fake wedding, federal agents arrested over 40 high-ranking criminals, who were all found guilty and sent to prison.
His never-before-told story on how he did it will amaze you and allow you access to an undercover world that exists all around our own.
