Takes on the World: Prof. Ed Wasserman on Julian Assange and the Mainstream Media, Segment 1

1 week 5 days ago
Blankfort interviews Prof. Ed Wasserman regarding his 4/27/19 op-ed in NY Times, “Julian Assange and the Woeful State of Whistle-Blowers,” in which Wasserman presents a nuanced view of Assange, noting that his faults make him “less a hero than a conundrum” and faulting the media that once eagerly utilized what diplomatic secrets Wikileaks had received to win Pulitzer prizes “that now find him distasteful.” Wasserman points out the unfair treatment by the US of sources as compared to the legal protections afforded the journalists that use them and that, “for all his sins, real and alleged, Julian Assange has been one of the most extraordinary sources of the new millennium.” He also speaks about how more harshly the US treats sources, i.e. whistle-blowers than do America's allies, citing Edward Snowden, as an example, who was forced to seek asylum in Russia after exposing the NSA mass surveillance program, despite his revelations having been instrumental in implementing the law curbing it. And much more! *quotes from cited article in NYT

RURAL WAR ROOM RADIO: J. R. "Bob" Dobbs & The Church of the SubGenius Documentary Hour Of Slack 1717, Segment 1

1 week 5 days ago
This hour of RWR Radio is courtesy of The Church of the SubGenius. It features Byron Werner. This is one of those rare Hours of Slack that's a documentary about the making of a documentary. Actually it's a documentary about the WATCHING of a documentary about those doing the watching. Recursive! The feature documentary film about us, "J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and The Church of the SubGenius," directed by Sandy Boone, had a very enthusiastic reception from audiences and reviewers at its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, and the SubGenius movie stars and friends had a BLAST! Sandy Boone tricked us into parading down the street holding signs and preaching loudly to the unsaved, and also into performing an impromptu mini-devival in the outdoor yard of the George Washington Carver Museum. Stang reflexively recorded those. Also this episode unveils -- get ready -- NEW REVELATIONS DIRECT FROM "BOB" HIMSELF!!! -- collected by Rev. Elvis Martini and read by Rev. Stang. Also: the beloved but suppressed SubGenius forbidden science lecture (with sound effects) by Dr. Ahmed Fishmonger about the basic sub-para-atomic particle, THE MUTRON. And: Massive Hot Dog Recall.

Takes on the World: Jeff Blankfort on Assange, Gaza, MoveOn & Iran, Segment 1

1 week 5 days ago
I begin by reviewing the situation of Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning and the importance of Wikileaks cables in exposing US role in destabilization of Venezuela. I note that dissecting personality of Assange has received more attention from media than contents of Wikileaks released cables. I go from there to read a transcript of a chilling Interview on Israeli radio with Israeli general, Zvika Fogel justifying the murder of killing children who get too close to Gaza border fence and ask if this a shared value with the US that Pelosi talks about. I then report on MoveOn’s endorsement of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib for 2020 and how it signals that the Democrat Party’s support of Israel is heading for the rocks. I conclude with report from Israeli media, ignored by US press, citing Mossad as the source of US statements regarding threats from Iran with Bolton in the middle. CHECK IT OUT!
