The Thunderbolt: TB 170210 Lab of Oppression 2X, Segment 1

Radio 4 All - 10 February 2017 - 3:01am
This week’s archive radio show starts off wondering whether or not humanity will receive any awards if — as scientists are predicting — we are the last of all the higher life form to survive the upcoming Apocalypse! Then, we describe how said Apocalypse is being greatly facilitated by the Democratic Party! Next, the Thunderbolt ponders the meaning behind some of Seymour Hersh’s exposes last year, once again revisiting the universally ignored fact that while there is indeed an epic battle for actual votes — our presidential elections are ultimately decided by a few rigged voting machines in a few key states these days — meaning that our president is whoever Goldman $achs says that it is. Then, for the feature piece this week, we have a long expose upon the direct role that Israel plays in the oppression of civilian populations all over the planet. A lot of stuff here that you probably don’t know about — but you know that you can always count upon the Thunderbolt for all the news that’s fit to suppress! Listen at your own risk! ..

The Quebec mosque attack victims spent their lives vilified as terrorists. Then they were murdered by one.

Rabble.ca/ - 9 February 2017 - 3:33pm

A radicalized, right-wing, white Trump supporter walks into a place of worship and terrorizes a room full of innocent Muslim men as they submit in peace and prayer. How depressingly ironic! These men became the victims of the very label that the media and public use to condemn them: terrorist.

What will be the worst consequence of Trudeau's broken promise on electoral reform?

Rabble.ca/ - 9 February 2017 - 2:24pm

After months of delay, cynical maneuvering and two female cabinet ministers tossed under the Liberal bus of "Real Change," Justin Trudeau finally told the ministry of democratic institutions that "changing the electoral system will not be in your mandate." Surprise!

Karl Nerenberg calls this shameless about-face "a gift to the right." He's not wrong. Greg Squires says that this betrayal of the soft left-wing voters that delivered Trudeau his majority has already cost him re-election in 2019.

Choices Two promising young female cabinet ministers were thrown under the bus over a file the Liberals never took seriously. The Conservatives could win another false majority and usher in another Harper-like decade. Justin Trudeau will lose his majority and Canada won't be cool anymore :( Deep-seated cynicism will take root in the Canadian electorate, making it possible for a radical right-wing demagogue to ride a wave of populism to victory in Canada. Electoral reform was never closer to implementation at the federal level -- and now the chance is gone. All of the above None of the above For the last time: no one cares about electoral reform.

No, there is no such thing as 'reverse' terrorism

Rabble.ca/ - 9 February 2017 - 1:32pm

In the aftermath of the Quebec City mosque attack, we have heard and read all kinds of language to describe the event.  "Hate crime," "mass murder" and "terrorist attack" were all used and they all, to some extent, do define what has happened. However, one confused TVA anchor said on air that this was a case of "reverse" terrorism. As if terrorism had only one form: Muslim against others.

Out of the Woods: Out of the Woods - Show #358 - 2-18-17, Segment 1

Radio 4 All - 9 February 2017 - 12:43pm
This version of the program is divided into 6 segments so broadcasters who desire to use this content can insert your station info, etc. The segments vary in length. Out of the Woods is an earthy, wires and wood, mostly acoustic program featuring some of the best new and established artists from the worlds of folk, bluegrass, singer-songwriters, alt.country, Americana, classic country, old-time, Celtic, and everything that falls in between. The show is an unpredictable mix flowing like a river between moods, often with an edge or in a melancholy minor key. On occasion, Out of the Woods features interviews and live in-studio performances with national and international touring musicians. Past guests have included artists such as Bela Fleck, Si Kahn, Brown Bird, Dana Robinson, Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen, Kate MacLeod, Bill Bourne, Karl Shiflett, Rachel Bissex, Darryl Purpose, Bow Thayer, Cosy Sheridan and many others. Out of the Woods grew out of Jon 'Chip' Colcord's former acoustic programs, The Song Swap and Music For The Mountain, separate folk and bluegrass programs which aired in New Hampshire during the 1990s. As a child, Colcord grew up a ravenous music fan with an ear for both rock and folk. All of these influences converge on Out of the Woods to bring you a mix which is as much on the edge as it is down home. Folk music with a rock 'n' roll soul
