THE THUNDERBOLT: TB 190412 Athena’s Shield 2X, Segment 1

6 jours 11 heures ago
KAOS had technical difficulties last week so I am replaying last week’s show this week (with an updated calendar, of course!) This week we provide some ‘live coaching’ (Thunderbolt style), we deliver the final word on human survival, and we have another ‘Irony of the Week’ feature. We describe Facebook’s new role as political censor, the Toothless Old Grandpa reappears and reveals the vampire’s apotheosis. In Part 2 we wonder who are the victims and who are the crimes and — for the feature piece this week — we reveal the secret of Athena’s shield. Take cover. Watch your back. Thunderbolts are likely.

The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #132/Twilight Zone Classic: Time Enough at Last, Segment 1

1 semaine ago
Sonic Café. I’m Scott Clark, and this is episode 132. Time. The days, months and years slip by so quickly. We spend our irreplaceable time attending to everything, but what matters most. So what would happen, if everything were turned upside down and we finally had time to ourselves? What would that be like? This time the Sonic Café brings you Time Enough at Last, a Twilight Zone Classic that originally aired in 1959. Starring the late Burgess Meredith, as the mild mannered bank teller Henry Bemis, a guy who just wants to be left alone to read. Read anything, from soup labels, to the classics. But everyone in his life conspires against him. That is, until a nasty nuclear firestorm came along and wiped out everything and everyone accept Henry and a library packed with books. At last with all distractions are gone, Henry has time enough at last. But then, in a cruel twist of fate, it’s taken from him in an instant, when his reading glasses are smashed beyond repair, leaving Henry with the time, but no longer the means to indulge his passion. To compliment this time warn tale, the Sonic Café presents a mix of artists who each have their own take on time. Listen for Sugar Blue, Crosby, Stills, Nash, the Anderson Ponty Band, Led Zeppelin and many more. All this time, on another Twilight Zone Classic, from that little café on the coast, where we always have enough time for what matters, we’re the Sonic Café.

Eyewitness Venezuela - Report Back Tour, Segment 1

1 semaine ago
Gloria La Riva, First Vice President of the Pacific Media Workers Guild, Local 39521, just back from Venezuela, speaks about what she saw and the people she spoke with during her one month trip. There to see first hand what was happening she counters the narriative that the U.S. Government and corporate media are using to destabilize the elected Venezuelan government in their campaign to destroy Venezuelan socialism, the humane alternative to the brutality of capitalism, and to regain for private investors and corporations unrestricted access to the mineral wealth of the country. Gloria was witness to Venezuelans defending their sovereignty at the border when the U.S. weaponized "humanitarian aid" in a violent stunt to split the military about which she comments. She showed several short interviews; a few snippets of the audio are included though the interview at a public out door gym is complete. It elicits a laugh from the audience as the person flexes his muscle for the camera while declaring, though not a follower of Maduro, as a patriot he is ready to defend his country from foreign invaders. Contrary to the propaganda people are not starving. There are problems she notes but ending the U.S. instituted financial blockade, long term interference in its trade relations and sabotage of the food distribution and electrical system would allow those problems to be resolved internally. Gloria La Riva refers to several articles that can be found at the answercoalition.org web site which has up to date reporting from Venezuela.

Takes on the World: Jeff Blankfort on Iran, Deir Yassin, Israel, NATO, Democrats, Segment 1

1 semaine 1 jour ago
In an extended program, due to a missing guest, I covered a range of subjects, beginning with Trump’s responding favorably to Netanyahu’s wishes over the Pentagon and CIA’s opposition by designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a “terrorist” organization, the latter being concerned about the likely endangerment of US troops in Iraq and Syria from Shia groups linked to the IRGC. I NPR for failing to report on the internal opposition to Trump’s action despite it having been on the front page of the NY Times. I will comment later that this is just the latest effort by Trump in fulfilling Netanyahu’s wish list and makes it more than likely that the Israeli PM will take advantage of Trump’s presence in the White House to follow through on his election eve promise and begin annexing Jewish settlements in the West Bank, confident that the US will veto any Security Council resolution that calls for Israel’s censuring. I note that Netanyahu selected the 71st anniversary of the massacre of the Palestinian village of Deir Yassin by Jewish terrorists and that the two terrorist gang leaders, Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir would later become Israeli prime ministers. I go from there to Las Vegas where Republican Jewish mega billionaire and the Republican and Trump’s major funder is hosting another of his projects, the Republican Jewish Coalition where he meets with Trump who draws cheers from the crowed when speaking of Netanyahu as “their prime minister.” He the proudly touts all the things he has done for Israel and America’s Jews. I then refer to a Jewish Telegraphic Agency article that describes the fault lines between Republicans and Democrats over Israel and the extent of differences among the Democrat campaign field, from Beto O’Rourke, who calls Netanyahu a racist, to Amy Globuchar who is in AIPAC’s pocket. I go from her statement that she supports a “two state solution” to revea l the fact that when two states might actually have been viable, in the late 80s, it was universally opposed by the Democrats and illustrate that by describing what occurred when a measure was placed on the San Francisco ballot in 1988 that offered support for two states and the ugly, cynical response by its opponents, with money from across the country, to defeat it. Should Netanyahu annex the settlements and the odds are that he will, Trump will surely support it and the illusion of two states will finally be put to rest, leaving the Democrats politically naked, something that Trump and the Republicans would surely enjoy. I go from there to an article by Norman Solomon criticizing Barbara Lee’s crucial vote in the House Foreign Relations Committee that allowed a vote on Trump’s bloated military budget to go the floor for a vote. He included Lee’s incomprehensible response. I then mention that on my previous program I had interviewed Dr. Lee Artz about the behind the scenes role the US has been playing to destroy the Venezuelan economy and bring down its government, none of which is ever mentioned by NPR whose Ari Shapiro went to the border with Colombia to interview Venezuelans who had fled the country, were in dire conditions, setting up, what I suggested was the demand for “humanitarian intervention” by the US.
