This week, Quinta and Scott were joined by Lawfare's new Managing Editor, Tyler McBrien, to hash through the week's national security news, including: “(John) Dean for a Day.” Surprise testimony by former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson has shed unprecedented light on Donald Trump's actions on Jan. 6th and reinvigorated discussions of possible criminal charges, among other consequences. Was this the smoking gun? What might it change moving forward?“The Prince and the Proffer.” A federal judge has asked the federal government to weigh in on whether Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has sovereign immunity in relation to civil lawsuits over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. What legal questions does this raise and what will the United States do?“When Federalism Gets Weird.” The Supreme Court has taken up Moore v. Harper, promising that it will soon weigh in on the controversial proposition that the Constitution gives state legislatures authority over federal elections that even state constitutions and courts cannot supersede. What could this case mean for American democracy?For object lessons, Quinta endorsed a visual demonstration of the challenges of historical research posted by law professor Julian Mortenson. Scott urged listeners to think outside the box while using their grills this summer, most notably by making the most under appreciated grill option: grill pizza. And Tyler endorsed Rebecca Solnit's new biography of George Orwell as a gardener, Orwell's Roses.Some of the other pieces we discussed in this episode include:Alan Rozenshtein and Jed Shugerman's article for Lawfare documenting how Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony convinced the former President Trump could be criminally prosecuted;Former federal judge and conservative legal luminary Michael Luttig's Twitter thread on the originalism and federalism issues with independent state legislature doctrine.

Join Suzanne Toro and Chris Kidawski as they explore pain, the human body, the fascia, human consciousness, attitude and the oscillating force within you (aka your soul).About Christopher J. Kidawski http://influentialhealthsolutions.com/Coach. Author. World Traveler. I have been many other things in this lifetime as well. Perhaps my best ability has been to motivate people through uncovering certain truths the universe has to offer.I started improving my body when I was 12 years old. I would come home from school and exercise every day without fail with small cement weight equipment. I mostly bench pressed, did bicep curls, and ran sprints. Arnold Schwarzenegger was my hero.At the age of 20 I started improving my mind. I read everything I could get my hands on. History was my favorite subject and I found the World Wars absolutely fascinating. Then I started reading all of the classic authors - Poe, Melville, Dumas, Tolstoy, Shakespeare, Hemingway, Whitman, Cervantes, Dickens, Twain, Wilde, Fitzgerald, Kipling, Orwell, Salinger, Faulkner, Thoreau, Kafka, and Kurt Vonnegut. While this contributed greatly to the construct of my mind, something was lacking, and I started to realize the mind can never make up for what the spirit craves.At the age of 28 I started working on my spirit. Reading Eckhart Tolle, Don Miguel Ruiz, Viktor Frankl, and others as well as listening to Ram Dass and going on meditation retreats expanded knowledge I already had and unlocked new understanding of who I truly wanted to be, how I truly wanted to act towards others, and who I truly wanted around me on a day to day basis.Now at the age of 38, I have found an extreme love for writing. I love fiction, especially science fiction, but my talents reside in writing non-fiction mainly dealing with the body or the mind.I've been an employee, a business owner, a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, a best man, an author, a confidant, a mentor, a leader, and sometimes a follower. I try to make my opinions as unbiased as possible, but if I am recommending something, that knowledge has come from life experience. While every person is not for everybody, my hope is that you find something I have to say that resonates with you. If it does, pass it along to those you love, this world can never have enough of a good message.The Back Pain Bible YouTube Channel Resources Mentioned:Human Garage Infopathy Architecture of Human Living Fascia Production brought to you by OmToro Wellness + Media

On this episode of Analog Smile, Sherry speaks with Brad Elvis and Chloe F. Orwell from The Handcuffs. Led by drummer Brad Elvis (Screams, The Elvis Brothers, Big Hello, The Romantics) and vocalist/guitarist/saxophonist Chloe F. Orwell (Big Hello), Chicago's The Handcuffs, released their fourth studio album Burn The Rails. The 13-song album was tracked at Kingsize Sound Labs, Chicago with producer/engineer Mike Hagler (Wilco, Neko Case, Billy Bragg, Mavis Staples, My Morning Jacket, The Mekons). Burn The Rails was released by Pravda Records in June on CD, download and via streaming platforms and later on 12″ vinyl. For the new album, they found inspiration from the heady, analog days of early 1970s rock & roll, weaving together elements of glam, indie, garage, art and blues rock. Inhabiting some of the same musical turf as T-Rex, Mott The Hoople, Roxy Music, The Raconteurs, P.J. Harvey, Led Zeppelin, and Patti Smith – all filtered through a modern lens – they deliver bold, sexy songs with memorable melodies and unexpected twists. Guest keyboardist Morgan Fisher (Mott The Hoople) demonstrates his synthesizer and piano prowess on a couple of tracks on the new LP. The relationship with Fisher, a musical hero of the band, began after singer Orwell's rave review of Mott The Hoople's 2018 reunion tour went viral on social media, attracting the attention of Fisher, who got in contact. From there a creative collaboration was sparked, in-spite of an ocean separating the now real-life friends. Finishing the record during the peak of the pandemic and lockdown gave several of the songs an inadvertent anthem-for-the-times feel – with themes of love and loss, heartache and hope, and even the great ideological divide that was as omnipresent as the virus. Elvis and Orwell formed The Handcuffs from the ashes of Big Hello, their first band together, which released three indie label records and toured from coast to coast. Elvis' career also includes a few major label go-arounds, arena tours, and a backstory that will be documented in a new autobiography in the near future. The duo's eagerness to explore new sonic territory and evolve into an entity that aligned more with their ever-expanding influences and broad range of musical tastes prompted a change. The Handcuffs began as primarily a studio project, in which Elvis and Orwell wrote and recorded an abundance of material. During the process, they realized that they missed the live band experience, and so The Handcuffs as recording artists and a dynamic live band was born. Completing the line-up are bassist Emily Togni, lead guitarist Jeffrey Kmieciak, and keyboardist Alison Hinderliter, all of whom originate from different parts of the country, but have made Chicago their home. Sherry, Brad, and Chloe chat about ‘Burn The Rails' and much more! Visit thehandcuffs.com for more information.

What we are told is safe, is toxic; we are told we must do, we should not. How did this happen? Beginning with a tale of scientific discovery in the 1990s and early 2000s—involving telomeres and cancer and senescence and mice—we arrive at one answer: if the powers-that-be have insight, they are better served by keeping that insight to themselves, by refusing to share it. And so: all the newspapers, all the universities, all the everything, are failing. We also discuss baby formula—why you might want or need it, and share a recipe from a naturopath that will be far better than anything you can (or cannot) find on the shelves. And we discuss fathers: genetic fatherhood, biological fatherhood, cultural fatherhood. There are many ways to be a good father. ***** Support the sponsors: Eight Sleep: Personalized thermoregulation while you sleep, and when you wake.

Flicks with The Film Snob

George Orwell’s dystopian novel was made into a great film in the year of its title: 1984. I'm guessing most of you have at least heard of George Orwell's novel “1984.” It's about a totalitarian state in the future, one of constant surveillance, in which critical thinking is a crime, and authority is represented by a dictator named Big Brother. An office worker in one of the ministries, Winston Smith, starts to question authority, and initiates a secret love affair with a woman named Julia, even though unsanctioned relationships are illegal. This is the plot, in brief, but perhaps the book has become so familiar that we've neglected to read it carefully anymore. Crucially, Orwell's ideas hinged on language and the way authoritarians use it to hide and distort the facts. Making a good film version of 1984 is difficult. It's been tried a few times, with varied success. My favorite version was released in 1984, adapted and directed by a young Englishman named Michael Radford. Radford's producers and other backers were behind his project, but they insisted that the picture be released in the year 1984, when the media would inevitably start talking about the book, comparing what it said to what the year looked like now, and so forth. That meant they were in a hurry to get it done, and it's impressive what Radford and his team, under pressure, managed to achieve on a pretty low budget. The screenplay was very faithful to the book. The director's first brilliant decision was to make the production design appear, not like some vision of the future, but similar to the styles of the year the book was written, 1948. There are computer, surveillance, and television screens in the film, but all the technology looks shabby and old-fashioned. The vehicles, the offices and other buildings, the clothes, look bleak, like England did after the war. Roger Deakins, early in what would become a very long career, paints the film in stark gray—a world of grime and confinement. The color photography sometimes looks almost black and white. All the amazing visual effects, such as the crowd scenes at the hate rallies with the large screens and the image of Big Brother, were done in camera—in other words, they were shot just as they appear. Of course there was no computer generated imagery then, but Radford couldn't even afford the current technology such as blue screens. In the main role of Winston Smith, Radford cast John Hurt, who conveys a kind of wounded resentment and passivity that gives an edge to the character's rebellion. The terrible punishment Winston endures Hurt makes palpable—his suffering has a visceral onscreen power. He truly went the extra mile. As Julia, a relative newcomer named Suzanna Hamilton has just the right mix of mischief and defiant strength. But the biggest coup was getting Richard Burton to play O'Brien, the drily sinister official who represents the intellectual voice of the state machine. He was not a well man, and had trouble remembering his lines. This caused some agonizing delays in the shoot. But the final result on screen is utterly compelling, one of his great performances. Instead of trying to act the villain as a lesser performer would do, Burton's calm and deliberate manner, and the precision and thoughtfulness of his delivery, turns O'Brien into the epitome of totalitarian thinking. It was his last appearance on screen. He died of a cerebral hemorrhage two months before the movie was released. 1984 did OK at the time—not a big hit. Since then, however, its stature has steadily increased, and now it's widely considered the best film version of Orwell's great, still relevant book.

Technocracy- what it is, historical examples, fictional allusions, and how to understand it in today's context. I bring in Machiavelli's the Prince, Orwell's 1984, Bentham's Panopticon, Plato's Republic, Huxley's Brave New World, and Asimov's Foundation to shine light on how technocracy plays out and what it looks like. These are connected to modern examples of how it has played our in the past and how it is occurring now. This pulls from some episodes I had done before season 3 but I then elaborated in depth at the end of season 3.

The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events 1803 Birth of Ralph Waldo Emerson, American transcendentalist, essayist, philosopher, and poet. After graduating from Harvard, Ralph decided to go by his middle name, Waldo. He was beloved by his fellow Harvard classmates, and many became his lifelong friends. Waldo served as his class poet.  Waldo met his first wife, Ellen, on Christmas Day six years later. Two years later, he lost her to tuberculosis. Her death eventually made him a wealthy man — although Waldo had to sue his inlaws to get his inheritance. After losing Ellen, Waldo traveled to Europe and visited the Royal Botanical Garden while he was in Paris. The experience was a revelation to him. There Waldo began to see connections between different plant species thanks to Jussieu's natural way of organizing the garden. The American historian and biographer Robert D. Richardson wrote about this period of heightened awareness for Waldo. He wrote, Emerson's moment of insight into the interconnectedness of things in the Jardin des Plantes was a moment of almost visionary intensity that pointed him away from theology and toward science.   When he returned to the states, Waldo became friends with other forward thinkers and writers of his time: William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Thomas Carlyle. In 1835, Waldo married again. His second wife was named Lydia Jackson. Waldo changed her name to Lidian, and he also had many pet names for her, like Queenie and Asia - but she always called him "Mr. Emerson." Around that time, Waldo began to think differently about the world and his perspective on life. As the son of a minister, his move away from religion and societal beliefs was quite impressive. In 1836, Waldo published his philosophy of transcendentalism in an essay he titled "Nature." He wrote: Nature is a language and every new fact one learns is a new word;  but it is not a language taken to pieces and dead in the dictionary, but [a] language put together into a most significant and universal sense.  I wish to learn this language, not that I may know a new grammar, but that I may read the great book that is written in that tongue.   Waldo also advised, Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.   As Waldo grew older, he immensely enjoyed gardening. His time in the garden also proved revelatory. Waldo had hired workers to help him in the landscape as a younger man. As a mature man, he recognized the benefits of exercise and a feeling of satisfaction from doing garden work all by himself. Waldo wrote, When I go into the garden with a spade and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and [good] health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands.   He also quipped, All my hurts my garden spade can heal. In the twilight of his life, Ralph Waldo Emerson was invited to join a group of nine intellectuals on a camping trip in the Adirondacks. The trip had one mission: to connect with nature. Waldo's traveling companions included Harvard's naturalist Louis Agassiz, the great botanist James Russell Lowell, and the American naturalist Jeffries Wyman. They had a marvelous time. It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who wrote, The landscape belongs to the person who looks at it.   And another Waldo quote is a personal favorite, The Earth laughs in flowers.   Finally, here's a little prayer Waldo wrote to thank God for the gifts of nature. For flowers that bloom about our feet; For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet; For song of bird, and hum of bee; For all things fair we hear or see, Father in heaven, we thank Thee!   1909 On this day, Miss Amanda Palmer, a teacher at Wilmington Normal School in Wilmington, North Carolina, shared her experience of taking her students on nature-based field trips. Her report was published in the Atlantic Educational Journal. Amanda wrote, On a field trip, a pupil... gains more of life's lessons than could possibly be learned in the schoolroom. These trips lead the children to ask questions, which the teacher must answer.  My class is composed of children in the fourth year primary. On one trip, trees of the neighborhood were studied. The flowers commanded our attention on still another trip. [Flowers like] the wild carrot, the yarrow, and wild mustard were examined. On one occasion a great mullein, or velvet dock, was brought into school. It was greatly admired by the children. On the next field trip no child had to be told what a mullein was. They, themselves, each saw and knew the mullein. On our trips, we sometimes catch glimpses of shy, wild creatures-a water-snake or, perhaps, a prairie hen. Again we may see only tracks here, the tiny footprints of a field-mouse; there, the path of a snake. On one trip we looked for birds especially, using field glasses. After hearing and seeing many birds, we sat down, about six o'clock in the evening, to listen to the concert--not one for which we were forced to give a silver offering, but a concert free to all. It was the sweetest music ever heard.  On May 25, 1909, we either saw or heard these birds: A phoebe, a pewee, a flicker, a cuckoo, a black and white warbler, a magnolia warbler, a chestnut-sided warbler, a water thrush, a Maryland yellow-throat, a red-start, a catbird, a brown thrasher, a Carolina wren and a hermit thrush. I think it is very instructive to show children the various birds' nests. They have observed, with keenest wonder, the blackbird's nest, the swinging nest of the oriole, the mud-lined nest of the robin, the feather-lined nest of the plain English sparrow, and the horsehair-lined nest of the red-eyed vireo ("vir-ē-ˌō").  I have [recently] added... a catbird's nest and a barn swallow's nest. [And when I was] in Haddonfield, N. J., I learned where a hummingbird's nest was. It will be [added to] the school's collection.   And then Amanda ends with this recommendation. [The following nature books are] helpful and interesting: The Audubon Leaflets, The Home Nature Study Library, and Julia Rogers' Among Green Trees.   Wilmington Normal School (where Amanda taught) was the first school in Wilmington, North Carolina, to admit African-American students. The school operated from 1868 to 1921.   1939 On this day, George Orwell, English novelist, essayist, journalist, and critic, wrote that his hens had laid two hundred eggs in the previous two weeks. When George returned to his home in Wallington after the Spanish Civil War, he recorded the activity of his chickens as he recovered from his war injuries and another bout of lung issues. George noted everything about his chickens: their daily egg production, their behavior, and what they ate and required in terms of care. George's diary begins in April, three years after arriving at Wallington, We have now twenty-six hens, the youngest about eleven months. Yesterday seven eggs (the hens have only recently started laying again.)  Everything greatly neglected, full of weeds, etc., ground very hard & dry, attributed to heavy falls of rain, then no rain at all for some weeks. . . .  Flowers now in bloom in the garden: polyanthus, aubretia, scilla, grape hyacinth, oxalis, a few narcissi.  Many daffodils in the field...These are very double & evidently not real wild daffodil but bulbs dropped there by accident. Bullaces & plums coming into blossom.  Apple trees budding but no blossom yet.  Pears in full blossom.  Roses sprouting fairly strongly.   Well, there you go - a little update from George Orwell about his garden over 90 years ago. And before I forget, there's a fabulous book from 2021 called Orwell's Roses by Rebecca Solnit, and when it debuted, it received all kinds of critical acclaim. It was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for non-fiction, and the writer, Margaret Atwood, raved that it was an exhilarating romp through Orwell's life and times — and also the life and times of roses. And Harper's said that it was "A captivating account of Orwell as a gardener, lover, parent, and endlessly curious thinker." And then the publisher wrote this, In the spring of 1936, a writer planted roses.” So begins Rebecca Solnit's new book, a reflection on George Orwell's passionate gardening and the way that his involvement with plants, particularly flowers, illuminates his other commitments as a writer and antifascist, and on the intertwined politics of nature and power.   1988 On this day, the Ripley Garden at the Smithsonian was dedicated. Tucked in between the Arts and Industries Building and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Ripley Garden is home to rare and unusual trees and shrubs as well as annuals and perennials - many in elevated beds, Which is terrific for folks of all different abilities and also for little children, it gets the garden up to eye level. And it's lovely for people like me with rheumatoid arthritis or arthritis in general because you don't have to stoop Over to see the flowers, It's all brought up to at least waist level, and you can examine Many of the specimens very closely. And also just want to say that this garden is immaculately maintained. The garden was the inspiration of Mary Livingston Ripley. She was a lifelong plant scholar, collector, gardener, and wife of the Smithsonian's eighth Secretary. Mary came up with the idea for a "fragrant garden" in a location slated to become a parking lot. In 1978, she rallied the Women's Committee of the Smithsonian Associates to support the garden. That group was an organization Mary founded in 1966 to raise money for Smithsonian projects. Ten years later, on this day in 1988, the Women's Committee recognized their founder and friend, Mary Livingston Ripley, by naming the garden after her. In 1996, Mary Livingston Ripley's obituary shared some fascinating details about her life. During the twenty years her husband worked at the Smithsonian, [Mary] frequently accompanied him on scientific expeditions to exotic reaches throughout the Far East.  She volunteered her time to fundraising and gardening exhibits at the museum. Mary was an avid gardener at her homes in Washington and in Litchfield. She was the person behind the Smithsonian's huge collection of orchids. She was also adept at skinning birds and turning over rocks in search of insects. Today, a lovely woman named Janet Draper is the horticulturist for the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden - a position she has relished since 1997. You can see her work on the Smithsonian Gardens Twitter feed. It's one of my favorite feeds on Twitter to follow. So check that out. And also, I'm a friend of Janet's on Facebook. So I get to see all her posts about the incredible flowers and rare specimens planted in that garden. The garden posts are just absolutely astounding. Janet is a wonderful person, and I met her during the Garden Bloggers Fling in DC several years ago. So I would be remiss not to mention the wonderful and dedicated Janet Draper in conjunction with the Ripley Garden.   Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation Potted History by Catherine Horwood  This book came out in 2021. It's one of my favorites. This is a revised edition, and the subtitle is: How Houseplants Took Over Our Homes. This is a great little garden history book, and it's all about houseplants. Now houseplants are crazy popular, and that's one of the reasons why Catherine revised this book. It was over a decade ago when the first edition came out, and so this is the second edition. As Catherine mentions, a surprising amount has changed in the story of plants in the home since this book first appeared. Now, what has caused this massive expansion in popularity? Well, in addition to the pandemic, which turned so many people toward gardening and growing houseplants. That trend had already started but was definitely nudged along by the pandemic. Catherine believes three factors have contributed to this overwhelming demand for houseplants. First, improved propagation techniques lead to increased availability and lower prices, which is fantastic. For me, our local Hy-Vee grocery store has a beautiful floral section. I find it quite interesting that the houseplant area is right at the east entrance of my store - that's the side that I always like to go in, of course, because the houseplants are there. But I am entirely fascinated that houseplants are impulse buys these days and are positioned at the front of the store. And while cut flowers are offered, they are not as close to the entrance as houseplants - they're a little further in the store.  Another factor behind the houseplant craze is changing lifestyles - particularly of millennials. Millennials are definitely into houseplants. When I took my daughter to college this past fall, her roommate took up half of the windowsill with her houseplants, and then my daughter's houseplants took up the other half of the windowsill. But as a wise gardener - and knowing that my daughter's room was facing north plus knowing Emma would forget about plant care - 99.9% of the houseplants I sent along with Emma were permanent stems or fake. That said, I did have two super tough live plants in the mix. One of them was moss in a closed terrarium environment. Yes, I am a gardener, and yes, I love houseplants — but I'm also a realist. The other factor causing the phenomenal growth of houseplants is social media. Just the other day. I saw someone post a picture of their living room on Twitter, and it was filled with houseplants. Somewhere in the back of this jungle, you could just see one lone chair, and the caption was, "Is this too many houseplants?" Even I was like, yes - that is too many houseplants. So crazy. There is no doubt that social media has encouraged this trend of houseplants, bringing plants indoors and turning your home into a conservatory. In the introduction, Catherine tells of a man named Sir Hugh Platt. He was a garden writer, and he published one of the first books on gardening techniques. He was also the first person to write a little section about having a garden within doors. Sir Hugh Platt would have loved an idea house that I saw a couple of years ago. Sponsored by one of our local nurseries, the home is updated in the spring and fall with all of these wonderful decor ideas. One particular year, they took one of the bedrooms upstairs and turned it into an indoor potting shed. Fantastic idea. The upstairs bath doubled as a place to wash your hands or water some plants. The little potting bench in the middle of the room was so cute. They also repurposed a bookshelf to serve as their system for organizing all their garden paraphernalia, their garden books, and their garden supplies. A beautiful display of different containers and pots - and tons of terracotta - made me go wild for this room idea. So, if you love this craze of indoor houseplants, you will love Catherine's book of houseplant history and the fascinating stories behind some of our most beloved houseplants. And what better time of year to read about houseplants than right now? This week, most gardeners are starting to move their houseplants back outside for summer, where there'll be deliriously happy before they have to come back in for the winter. And if you are giving someone the gift of a houseplant, then, by all means, order a few copies of Catherine's book to include that along with the present. Talk about amping up a houseplant gift! Sizewise, this is a little book. I love it by the chair in my garden library. And the cover is so pleasant. It's beautifully illustrated with just a single little houseplant. It is just so stinking cute. It's 176 pages of houseplant history. So who wouldn't love that? You can get a copy of Potted History by Catherine Horwood and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $8.   Botanic Spark 1905 On this day, Louisa Yeomans King wrote in her diary recorded in the book The Flower Garden Day by Day: MAY 25. Species lilacs are wonderfully interesting. If there is room, get a few of these;  if there is no room, get one or two,  and if there is room for but one, get Syringa sweginzowi superba, or Syringa oblata for its crimson leaves in October, the only lilac to color so.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

Our final episode addressing the question, Are we living in George Orwell's 1984? You can listen to the whole novel on our Simple Gifts Podcast. The preceding two episodes and this one were drafted as a unit. They should be digested together, as they form a single narrative. This week we continue our analysis of doublethink. As Jenny and I walk our neighborhood each week, we see sign after sign proclaiming "Science is Real." This is meant as a provocation, as a supercilious critique, but properly understood it is DOUBLETHINK, as Wokism requires the denial of science while at the same time criticizing its opponents as "science deniers." This fundamental ability to hold and assert contradictory conceptions AS MEANS TO AN END is really nothing more than the will to lie, to deny what we know to be true, and to deny it so vehemently that we believe we are not denying it. It is the rational capacity to choose irrationality in order to achieve a desired end. These episodes are introducing an episode (or series of episodes) of the Christian Atheist entitled, "The Evident, Evidence, and Faith," debuting next week. It is useful to illustrate the vision opposing the structures of Western liberal society that I am trying to explicate. This self-loathing opposition to the West is what I have been attempting to explain here at the Christian Atheist for our entire existence, which I have been trying to understand all my life. It is no mistake that the Hegelians, Marxists, neo-Marxists, Critical theorists, Postmoderns and Wokists hate this Western reality BECAUSE IT STANDS IN THE WAY OF THEIR ENDS. George Orwell's dystopian novel, 1984, is, I think, the best example in literature of the logical outplaying of the post-Hegelian logic in practical politics. It is disheartening to compare today's Woke culture (and its ideological history/development) to Orwell's Oceania. Join us, and let me know what you think of the parallels.

In Episode 124 of the CounterVortex podcast, Bill Weinberg continues his deconstruction of the increasingly sinister, fascist-abetting politics of Noam Chomsky. In the latest in the endless litany of sycophantic interviews with Chomsky, this time from an outfit called EduKitchen, this supposed icon of the left actually praises Donald Trump for advocating appeaement of Putin in Ukraine—for which he was favorably tweeted by the inevitable Glenn Greenwald. Most perversely, the interview is entitled "Noam Chomsky on the Russia-Ukraine war, The Media, Propaganda, Orwell, Newspeak and Language." Yet Chomsky is advocating positions that were utterly inimical to everything Orwell ever stood for. This constitutes an Orwellian exploitation of Orwell, mirroring Putin's fascist pseudo-anti-fascism, and the pseudo-pacifist war propaganda of his Western enablers.

We live in an age where what has been universally understood as beautiful is now derided as ugly and where we are told that we must embrace and celebrate the ugly as beautiful. We live in an upside down, backwards, world of what Orwell described as “blackwhite.” Listeners of Sovereign Nations will not be surprised to find this critical approach to aesthetics is sourced in concepts derived from Hegel, Marx and Herbert Marcuse. In his book, The Aesthetic Dimension, Marcuse stated the following: “A work of art can be called revolutionary if, by virtue of the aesthetic transformation, it represents, in the exemplary fate of individuals, the prevailing unfreedom and the rebelling forces, thus breaking through the mystified (and petrified) social reality, and opening the horizon of change (liberation).” As with all aspects of human life, Marcuse and the radical revolutionaries have worked hard to turn nearly every accepted view of both beauty and ugliness upside down.

Rebecca Solnit on George Orwell

Since 1990, historian, activist, and essayist Rebecca Solnit has written more than twenty books, on subjects ranging from natural disasters and wandering to feminism and social change. In the past, Rebecca has singled out female authors such as Virginia Woolf as important influences. Today, though, she’ll be talking about a more surprising writer to whom she feels she owes a debt: George Orwell. Orwell is best known for essays such as “Politics and the English Language” and for his chilling portrayal of totalitarianism in novels such as 1984. He has long been revered by male writers such as George Packer and the late Christopher Hitchens. But female writers, including Rebecca, have tended to be more critical, sometimes taking Orwell to task for ignoring the injustices of sexism. And yet Rebecca counts Orwell as a major influence. In fact, she has devoted her latest book to his life and work. It’s called Orwell’s Roses, and it was inspired by a visit she paid to his rural cottage, where she learned about the gardening he did long ago. Rebecca contends that nature not only mattered greatly to Orwell, but that it is directly related to his antifascism. In this conversation, she elaborates on her unconventional view of Orwell, and she offers an alternative reading of 1984. She talks about how Orwell was both a socialist and a critic of the left, and why she identifies with this, and argues for the political importance of pleasure and beauty. And she explains why, despite Orwell’s troubling silence about the plight of women, she believes we should still read his works.

56 men signed the Declaration of Independence, a document that is timeless in world history and speaks to "a long train of abuses and usurpations" that "evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism." Under these conditions, it becomes the people's "right", "it is their duty, to throw off such Government..." Calls have now been, and are continuing, to be made to bypass Congress, pack the Supreme Court, and use the Presidential pen as the arbiter of laws. This was not the meaning of the DOI. Now 56 nations have signed a Declaration for the Future of the Internet. One day before, the DHS saw the formation of a 'Disinformation Governance Board' and a week later the DOJ opened an office of 'Environmental Justice'. Respectively, these are the Ministries of 'Truth' to police speech and 'Sustainability' to police issues of climate. Now we find that the CDC, which has repeatedly violated its statutory authority on evictions and masks, used taxpayer money to buy cellular phone data in order to spy and track those taxpayers, determining compliance with its recommendations during the 'pandemic'. Putting so much power in the hands of the government to police speech, lifestyle, and compliance to its 'recommendations' never turns out well for those being subject to such oversight. Furthermore, those once concerned about a cashless society are now encouraging the use of digital currency as an alternative to real assets and things of physical value.

Stagflation and recession fears grow: U.S. GDP "unexpectedly" shrunk 1.4% in first quarter. Clay says, "You never hear unexpected good news on the economy under Joe Biden." Biden forgets words mid speech. We see so many of his gaffes in his few public appearances, what are they seeing in the West Wing? What is Jill Biden seeing? Joe Biden promised Kamala Harris a solo lunch "once a week," they've only had two. Mayor Pete and Biden are going to the White House Correspondents' Dinner this weekend, which doesn't require masks, while Biden administration simultaneously argues you have to wear masks on planes, trains and buses. Jen Psaki clarifies Fauci, who said the U.S. is "out of the pandemic phase," making it clear we are in another phase, still in a pandemic. Biden Regime creates 'Disinformation Board,' aka Ministry of Truth. Buck says, "Orwell had a Ministry of Truth." See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The “Lady Writer” who (perhaps unwittingly) bestowed upon our own Todd Pruitt his “Major Pastor” credentials is today's special guest. Co-host, professor, and rap artist Carl Trueman joins in to welcome Megan Basham, culture reporter for the Daily Wire. All superfluous titles aside, the three discuss an essential topic: the disturbing state of what is currently referred to as "responsible journalism." Why have the mainstream news and entertainment media become mere PR outlets for the political and cultural elites? When did journalists stop holding our leaders accountable, choosing instead to defend a singular perspective that would make even Orwell blush? Megan takes on her media colleagues and the most controversial topics of the day in this high-energy conversation!

CHEGOU O http://podcastcafecomleite.com.br Participe do financiamento coletivo para que possamos produzir os 24 episódios do Café Com Leite de 2022: https://bit.ly/querocafecomleite  Era uma vez um bando de ratos que vivia no buraco do assoalho de uma casa velha. Havia ratos de todos os tipos: grandes e pequenos, pretos e brancos, velhos e jovens, fortes e fracos, da roça e da cidade. Mas ninguém ligava para as diferenças, porque todos estavam juntos em torno de um sonho comum: um queijo enorme, amarelo, cheiroso, bem pertinho dos seus narizes. Comer o queijo seria a suprema felicidade… Mas um dia as coisas começaram a mudar.
