Fourth World Radyo: Justifying Homophobic Murder(s): Examining the False Utilisation of Feigned Ignorance as a Means of Defending Prejudice, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
In another spoken-word sociopolitical rebuttal against foolish social biases; unwarranted ignorance and scary Far-Right normalisations for homophobic violence, @TheAngryindian discusses the increasingly apathetic focus on the basic #HumanRights of our #Trans/#TwoSpirit Brothers and Sisters (and everything in-between) with regards to anti-Transgender discrimination; physical assault and extreme prejudice and/or (premeditated) murder of people simply because they are different; vulnerable and un-protected by the legal/justice system. It is important to understand that this critique is centred on one particular source of independent Afro-American news media, not the broader effort undertaken by Black broadcasters in North and South America to address and eliminate prejudice(s) and the rush to belligerence in an supposedly (progressive) humane society. EXTRAS: Listeners should anticipate the usual political satire clips – this time from ‘Secular Talk’ and political entertainment in the form of ‘Revolution #2’ by The What - and - ‘Straight White Middle Class Male’ by veteran troubadour Dave Lippmann. There is also archived audio from a televised interview with a Two-Spirited Dine’ (Navajo) person who sat as a guest on the (usually ‘Liberal’) Phil Donahue Show (circa: 1991) following the Danny Bonaduce prostitution scandal; and internet media from Africa discussing the struggles of Transgendered People on the African continent. All this and much more on, 4WR. The official internet radio broadcast of the Aboriginal Press News Service/ANG

Global Research News Hour: NATO and Western Militarism in a Multipolar World, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
If NATO was conceived to collectively defend countries in the North Atlantic region from the 'Soviet threat', why has NATO's military activity accelerated in the quarter century since the Soviet Union's collapse? A conference in Winnipeg in early April of 2017 sought to explore these and related questions. This week's episode of the Global Research News Hour carries some of the audio from that conference. Radhika Desai is professor of Political Studies at the uNiversity of Manitoba and director of the Geopolitical Economy Research Group, based at that university. Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya is a sociologist at the University of the Phillipines, research associate with the Centre for Research On GLobalization and author of the Globalization of NATO. Paul Kellogg teaches interdisciplinary studies at Athabasca University. Roger Annis is co-founder and editor of The NEW COLD WAR: Ukraine and Beyond.

The Thunderbolt: TB 170712 Slime Mold Cowboys 2X, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
Just in case you doubt the Thunderbolt staff’s intellectual capacity, this week’s archive radio show starts off with some very brainy ‘brain-on-brain’ conjectures concerning the brain! (If you can wrap your brain around that!) Then, as if that weren’t enough, we then present what was (at the time) a new Thunderbolt feature featuring several unbelievable unbelievabilities! Next, we document the sneak attack being prepared by or own mutant-child creation (plastic) that is even now engaged in a sinister plot to take over the whole world! And it is winning! But don’t worry: If plastic doesn’t get us — then climate change will! Next, we describe the New World Order bounty hunters! The proud vanguard of neo-colonialism! And speaking of the Earth biting back — for the feature piece this week we feature the inimitable yet humble slime mold! Don’t be fooled! This smelly and shy creature also appears poised to once again re-take its position as the Top Dog life-form on the whole entire planet! (Once we have finished trashing it, that is…) Since the plastic is going to be there nearly forever then maybe the slime mold will end up sharing the planet with the plastic — or maybe they’ll learn how to eat it. Who knows? Anyway — this week’s Thunderbolt documents humanity’s battle against the Earth Herself! (As if we can be separated…) (And can you guess which team always gets to bat last?) — In spite of a dearth of fame recognition or awards of any kind, the Thunderbolt has been your source for the inconceivable unbelievable unthinkable implausible yet always factual facts and accurate assessments of those facts for many years now. In addition, the Thunderbolt has been the most accurate predictor and prognosticator of political perfidy that is on the market for that entire time. Other than one academic who (I feel) used a flawed mathematical algorithm to accidentally come to the correct conclusion — other than that guy I am still the only left-leaning commentator that I know of on the whole worldwide Interweb who used factual analysis to correctly predict that the Rump was going to win the presidential election, for instance. If anyone knows of anyone else who is on the record predicting that the Rump was going to win by using factual analysis — or if you would like to know the facts that I analyzed in order to come to that conclusion — then please contact me at dana98502@gmail.com and I would like to hear from you. Thanks. By the way: Though it was in pre-Thunderbolt days, in 2006 I also warned all my friends and family that the 2007 financial collapse was coming. I figured that out whilst sitting inside a federal prison. One more note: If you dare listen to the Thunderbolt then be warned that you do so at your own risk. The prognosticating business is pretty dire these days and getting through this show requires taking off all blinders and being exposed to a wide variety of the very diseased private parts of some very diseased people. You can get through it, though. You just need to be strong — and don’t forget to occasionally take the time to stop and smell the slime mold… — Peace.
