We discuss the big money that is behind all of the advertising campaigns and pushes throughout the pandemic. Is it and has it been for your health? Who is involved, and what messages do they carry to which audiences? Have therapeutics been the key all along? Also, has China launched a second hypersonic vehicle into space? Is this just more propaganda? Does China posses the ability to even achieve what US watchers are calling "defying the laws of physics?" And, Joe Biden is out promoting infrastructure. Is anyone listening? Does the US even need it? Is he mentally and physically fit enough to maintain the office of the Presidency? We ask the questions.
Last week, Justice Sonia Sotomayor announced that the Supreme Court had broken with tradition and changed its rules for oral argument. This came after a study revealed that women are disproportionately interrupted by men in the highest court in America. This week, we're re-airing a More Perfect episode about the Northwestern University research that inspired the Court's changes. This story originally aired on More Perfect, a Radiolab spin-off about the Supreme Court. A transcript of this episode will soon be made available. Please check back. Be part of The Experiment.

Richard Maybury and Dr. Roger Moss return. When President Eisenhower was leaving the Presidency, he warned Americans of the emerging “military industrial complex” (MIC) that would destroy our democratic form of government. Sadly, it seems the President was right as a massive bureaucracy now makes rules that have nothing to do with the will of the electorate. A move away from power by the people to power of the government over the electorate to dictate every area of life has provoked growing anger from conservatives. Conservatives crave retention of the Constitution that guarantees the rights of Americans to be free of government tyranny. Much of the current lack of agreement is related to social issues, with economic issues taking a back seat. But, increasingly, as Federal Reserve's counterfeiting actions result in hyperinflation and Americans realize this money printing scam is the reason for their poverty and the massive wealth of the top 1%, Richard believes a setting very similar to Cuba in 1958 may leave power in America up for grabs by any number of interests. Richard will explain what to watch for to determine who will gain power and what investments you should own in preparation for a hyperinflationary event starting with gold. Roger will give us an update on Labrador Gold Corp on its Kingsway project that is starting to show some very high grade results. These results are starting to resemble the results of the emerging world class gold discovery on the Queensway project next door by New Found Gold.
Hardly a day goes by when the President of the United States isn't a topic of conversation. From TV and Twitter to baseball games and surprise breakfast stops, the person sitting in the nation's highest office has the power to get attention almost no matter what they're doing. And increasingly so, they have made an effort to use their platform to drive politics, policy and power in the United States. In their book, "The Ubiquitous Presidency: Presidential Communication and Digital Democracy in Tumultuous Times," Drs. Joshua Scacco and Kevin Coe trace the history of the presidential platform, and how presidents came to realize they weren't just in the news, that it was to their advantage to BE the news. They describe how Bill Clinton's saxophone, Barack Obama's test drive with Jerry Seinfeld and Donald Trump's rallies formed a new force in American politics, that of the president who is everywhere.Joshua Scacco is on Twitter at twitter.com/joshscaccoKevine Coe is on Twitter at twitter.com/profkevincoeTheir book is published by Oxford University Press: https://global.oup.com/academic/product/the-ubiquitous-presidency-9780197520642?cc=ca&lang=en.YBBJWjERYhM.twitterSupport our show at patreon.com/axelbankhistory**A portion of every contribution is given to a charity for children's literacy**"Axelbank Reports History and Today" can be found on social media at twitter.com/axelbankhistoryinstagram.com/axelbankhistoryfacebook.com/axelbankhistory
2021 has been such an interesting year for me and I was just as shocked as anyone that I was able to interview the President of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson. I talk about how the opportunity to interview Guðni during the podcast episode because it is quite unusual. The President was very kind to answer all of my questions, including the questions that the members of the All Things Iceland Patreon submitted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTJo-K3_PV8&t=1s Here are the questions I asked the President of Iceland during the interview: What motivated you to run for President of Iceland in 2016? Can you explain a bit about what your duties are, and what kind of power you do have in the Icelandic government? - What have you learned from previous Icelandic Presidents What is most challenging about being President of Iceland? How has COVID impacted your Presidency? What He likes about being President of Iceland The myths about Iceland he wants to debunk The President's favorite history about Bessastaðir (The Icelandic President's Residence) Has there been anything interesting and/or strange that have you experienced since leaving behind your life as an ordinary citizen and becoming the head of the Icelandic state? One of the most surprising things I read about you is you're a very distant cousin of Barack Obama. Was it shocking to you when you found that out? Also, have you met the Obamas? What is your favorite Icelandic word or phrase? Questions From my patrons on Patreon Before assuming the office of the president you had an academic background in Icelandic history. When you leave office what do you think you will focus on studying or writing about? As an individual who has translated the works of Stephen King into Icelandic what is your favorite work by the Author? Is there any literature you would love to see translated that has not been? Join the All Things Iceland Patreon Community Some of you might be aware that one of my goals for the podcast is to travel around Iceland more to interview different people in each region. In July 2020, I set up the All Things Iceland community on Patreon. It's a membership platform that was founded in 2013. It allows or creators like me to provide exclusive content to listeners like you in exchange for a monthly subscription.

With the Facebook "Whistleblower" report, the authoritarian left is using a statement we can all agree with ("Teenage bullying is wrong!") to justify unaccountable government oversight and censorship of big tech. National Review's Andy McCarthy joins us to explain how some Republicans are falling into the Democrats' censorship trap, why the left and right truly do not see eye to eye on this issue, and modifications we could make to Section 230 to stop big tech's censorship of conservatives without destroying our 1st Amendment rights. We also looked at the legal implications of Governor Abbott's prohibition on vaccine mandates and Attorney General Merrick Garland's investigation of parents as "domestic terrorists" for protesting their school boards' mask mandates. Andy McCarthy is a senior fellow at National Review Institute, an NR contributing editor, and author of Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency. He served as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Follow him in Twitter at @AndrewCMcCarthy.
In this new episode of EU Watchdog Radio we dive into the question on how the European governments are actually spending the billion and billions of EU recovery funds. We focus specifically on France, which is taking over the EU presidency as of 2022 (Under the influence | Corporate Europe Observatory) .The climate movements are preparing for the important climate summit which will take place in Glasgow, early November. All kinds of experts, like the scientists of the IPCC told us that we have ten years to curb greenhouse gas emissions. And we should keep fossil fuels in the ground as much as possible.There are a lot of green and climate friendly speeches and commitments. But when you dig a bit deeper, it seems that billions of recovery funds are flowing into the bank-accounts of the fossil fuel industry or other sectors that are contributing to climate change. Despite their green rhetoric, the European commission and EU governments are allocating billions towards false solutions as hydrogen, the trojan horse for the gas industry, and the nuclear sector.In this episode we talk with Olivier Petitjean, researcher working for l'Observatoire des Multinationales in Paris. Together with other research organisations all over Europe, he published a first report (Hijacking the Recovery Through Hydrogen | Corporate Europe Observatory) under the banner Recovery Watch, to monitor how all those European billions are being spent.Big corporations and their lobbyists are now cheering the so called solution for climate change, called hydrogen and a new generation of nuclear power plants. The French president Emmanuel Macron officially announced his support as the big plan for France, and is supported by at least ten eastern-European countries. So the move of the French president Macron to support nuclear and hydrogen was maybe somehow predictable but also bad news for a robust EU climate policy. In January France will take over the Presidency of the EU Council for six months. Will Macron steer the EU in a more neo-liberal direction?This podcast is produced by CEO and Counter Balance. Both NGOs raise awareness on the importance of good governance in the European Union, by researching issues like lobbying of large and powerful industries, corporate capture of decision making, corruption, fraud, human rights violations in areas like agro-business, biotech & chemical companies, the financial sector & public investment banks, trade, energy & climate, scientific research and much more…You can find us on iTunes, Spotify & Buzzsprout.

It's been almost a year since Trump lost the presidency and over nine months since a new administration and a new congressional majority took power. We're moving further and further away from Trump's controversial use of presidential authorities, and it seems like we've lost momentum in the push for systemic changes to prevent future abuses. Fortunately, some people are still pushing. Natalie Orpett sat down with Bob Bauer, former White House counsel to President Obama, and Jack Goldsmith, former assistant attorney general in President Bush's Office of Legal Counsel. Together, they are the authors of the book, “After Trump: Reconstructing the Presidency,” which was published in fall 2020. They've now joined together again to start a new organization, the Presidential Reform Project, which proposes a bipartisan blueprint for reconstructing the presidency. They talked about their recommendations for reform, including a few that they've added to their list since writing their book; about what's going on in Congress and the executive branch right now; and they explained why they believe that it really is still possible to implement some of their reforms.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lawfare.

Ashley C. Ford was just a baby when her father was sentenced to 30 years behind bars. Prison phone calls—a $1.4 billion industry in the United States—were often prohibitively expensive for her family, so Ford maintained a fragmentary relationship with him through handwritten letters and short visits, while her loved ones tried to shield her from her father's past. With limited contact and unanswered questions, Ford filled in the blanks with fantasies of her father as the perfect man. This week on The Experiment, the Atlantic staff writer Clint Smith speaks with Ford about what children lose when a parent is in prison—and what happened when she discovered the truth of her father's crime.

A Constitutional Software Upgrade: with Alan Dechert Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, Alan Dechert noticed an incomprehensible paradox. Humanity had seen incredible progress in many ways, but civilization was still in poor condition. Wars, violence, famine, environmental catastrophes, inequities, and corruption dominated the news. In the 1970s, while a student at UC Berkeley, it came to him... his grand idea for how to resolve these age-old contradictions. The idea was too big for the usual modes of presentation. He would have to break it down into manageable pieces. Instead of a book, he wrote articles; instead of one massive political campaign, he got involved in several. In 2017, he decided to roll up all his projects into one all-inclusive change-the-world project, a new system of global governance which will require constitutional reform for the United States and the world. (00:00) Intro and T-shirts. Joe and Sean introduce our guest, and discuss the importance of a planetary perspective. (07:09) History and a statement of purpose for Open Source Governance. Peace as a human right. The price of failure a century ago, at the League of Nations. (16:37) "To Secure These Rights." Addressing the question of popular sovereignty. Enumerating new rights. (24:49) Disenfranchisement, and the difficulty of eliminating the non-proportional representation of the Senate. Any new constitution has to be ratified by 38 states. (32:00) Principles of global equality are vitally important. The omission of a statement of equality from the Treaty of Versailles led directly to the hostilities of WWII. (38:06) How does this new Constitution handle the question of "limited government" which conservatives seem to be obsessed with? Answer lies in getting government out of the business of supporting the military industrial complex and the fossil fuel industry. (47:29) Separation of powers. The new Constitution reduces the power of the Presidency with a new position of an elected co-executive in the office of Attorney General who's elected for a single 10 year term. Currently, the POTUS is the chief law enforcement officer and has the power of life and death over every American. (58:08) How does the new Constitution handle federalism? Confronting the hijacking of state governments by the military industrial complex through the doling out of military contracts to every state. Need to restore equality, rule of law, and rights to the highest priority. (01:08:05) Creating a movement to fill stadiums and catalyze change. Just as the Articles of Confederation were thrown out because they were failing, so our current Constitution needs to be thrown out because it is failing. It's the same work to ratify a new Constitution, as it would be to pass a single Amendment. (01:12:50) Fighting back against theocracy. The Year Zero campaign and the new calendar for the Solar Era. Clarifying the "free exercise" clause to curtail special religious privilege in the law. (01:26:46) Actionable ideas for implementation. Coalition building. (01:35:27) The Constitution as software. The new Constitution will be like open-source software, use software development tools and iterative processes to improve and finalize the text in cooperation with legal scholars. (01:37:55) Wrapup and outro. _________________________________ Show notes: https://theanswer.fyi/frequently-asked-questions/ (Frequently Asked Questions) https://theanswer.fyi/constitutions.pdf (Draft text of the new Constitutions) https://www.facebook.com/SolarEraCalendar (FB Page for discussion of the Solar Era Calendar) https://www.facebook.com/hf.discuss (FB Page for The People's Constitution) _________________________________ https://www.patreon.com/theradicalsecular (Patreon) https://www.theradicalsecular.com/ (Website) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Instagram: @radical_secular https://www.facebook.com/theradicalsecular (Facebook) Twitter: @RadicalSecular...

Sloppy Steve Bannon is evidently vying to replace Rush Limbaugh.. the endless accolades for Trump.. the endless crappy arguments Bannon is desperately trying to make to make Trump appear like he was this economic 'genius' who saved America.. in this episode, I want to air some of what Bannon refers to as Trump's winning milestones which, when you get to the 'facts' aren't anything to brag about and the arguments he is making in the process are based on ass-backward premises.. #SloppySteveBannon
Problems continued to pile up for the Biden White House this week. Their economic agenda has been put in jeopardy by feuding Democrats, and congressional hearings regarding Afghanistan once again put a spotlight on the mistakes made during our exit from the country. Earlier this week, host Dave Anthony spoke to Co-founder and President of RealClearPolitics Tom Bevan about the obstacles President Biden faces in passing his agenda, why the President's approval numbers are slipping and how it will be challenge to win back the supporters elected him in to office. The interview was too long and we could not include all of it on our conversation. On the FOX News Rundown Extra you will hear complete, unedited conversation with RealClearPolitics' Tom Bevan.
What was it like inside the White House when Donald Trump lost — then denied losing — the election? Journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, authors of the new book Peril, sat down with Apple News Today host Shumita Basu to discuss the chaotic period, which they consider one of the most dangerous in American history. Peril is available now on Apple Books.
The Biden Administration is failing on every front, in foreign policy, immigration, Covid-19, jobless claims and now failing to raise the debt ceiling/infrastructure because of infighting between Democrats.
The final days of Trump's Presidency were filled with struggles, chaos, and an insurrection on the US Capitol. Bob Woodward and Robert Costa's new book, Peril, gives us insight into what happened during this tumultuous time period that almost destroyed democracy from the inside out. The authors join to discuss the final days of Trump's time in office. What happened? And more importantly what could have happened had the efforts of a select few not stepped in to intervene.GUESTS:Bob Woodward (@realBobWoodward), Professor at the University of California – Berkeley's Institute of Governmental StudiesRobert Costa (@costareports), National Correspondent, Yahoo News.

Biden BOOED At Baseball Game As Approval TANKS, Democrats Lining Up Harris To Take Over Presidency. Biden is seeing his worst approval and highest disapproval triggering fear and panic among democrats.

While seemingly unlikely, Democrats desperately need something to stop Republicans from taking over congress in 2022 #Democrats #Biden #Republicans Become A Member And Protect Our Work at http://www.timcast.com Learn more about your ad choices.

In a recent NewsMax TV appearance, Savage produced an antique mariner's telescope and demonstrated how Joe Biden is not only looking through it the wrong way, he doesn't even realize that the cap is still on! A fitting metaphor for a Presidency marked by short-sightedness and stupidity. In this podcast, Savage relates America today to the Lewis Carroll story we all know as "Alice in Wonderland" (originally titled "Through the Looking Glass"), in a world where everything is backwards. Economic collapse is a "boom", foreign policy failure is a success, 15000 Haitians massed on the border is not a crisis. In times like this, we turn to God and faith to help us see the larger picture and draw comfort from the wisdom of the ages. Savage reads from his 2017 book "God Faith and Reason." He also speaks of loss, how we all encounter it from time to time as Trump did in 2020, but need not buckle under it. Rather we resolve to fight even harder tomorrow. The show wraps up with reading from Lin Yutang's "The Importance of Living" which is about finding happiness in everyday things. An inspiring podcast! Learn more about your ad choices.

Today's show rundown: Chuck has been watching this week, about the 2016 election - what the Democrats and Hillary Clinton tried to do to keep Trump from becoming president. The Durham investigation - it has taken us this long to just get to OPEN this can of worms. The out of control bureaucracy thinks it can just do whatever it wants now days. They can disregard the constitution, break rules, and they just say - it's for the greater good. The broader point is that The Powers that Be, they hate the American People. When Sussmann went to the FBI with the "Russian Collusion" narrative, he did so as a "concerned citizen". The FBI now had the justification to launch this investigation that would eventually tear this country apart. The conflicts of interest that exist were all over the place during this time. The corrupt, senior leadership of the FBI took the investigative duties out of the hands of the field offices, and did this job, themselves. The Swamp of Bureaucracy felt that they were going to protect the American people from themselves, because we must not have known what we were doing when we voted for Trump - who won the Presidency. These people will break any rules they feel necessary to make sure THEIR version of America is what they move forward. The DEPLORABLES like us need to take back Washington and our Country NOW.
On this edition of Parallax Views, earlier this year a curious new book was published dealing with the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Co-written by R. James Woolsey, former Director of the CIA under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1995, and Ion Mihai Pacepa, a former Romanian spy and a noted, high-ranking Eastern Bloc defect during the Cold War, Operation Dragon: Inside the Kremlin's Secret War Against America argues that the JFK assassination was the result of a plot involving the Soviet Union's Nikita Khrushchev and Cuba's Fidel Castro. Lee Harvey Oswald, the book claims, was instructed by Khrushchev to kill President Kennedy. According to Woolsey and Pacepa, Khrushchev actually called off the plot for fear that it might be discovered and lead right back to him as one of the perpetrators. What Khrushchev did not count on, say Woolsey and Pacepa, is that Oswald would go rogue and carry out the assassination plot in spite of orders to the contrary. In other words, Operation Dragon alleges that President Kennedy's assassination was the result of nefarious Soviet treachery. Is Operation Dragon just another entry in dizzying array of theories positing an alternative to the Warren Commission Report's oft-contested findings concerning the fatal shooting of a sitting President of the United States in Dallas, TX on November 22nd, 1963? Perhaps. Then again, most books that challenge, in varying degrees, the official line on the Kennedy assassination aren't written by ex-CIA Directors. But the curiosity of the book's co-author, the aforementioned James Woolsey, penning a book dealing with the Kennedy assassination doesn't end with his status as the former highest-ranking official in the CIA. In addition to his tenure as DCIA, Woolsey served as U.S. Under Secretary of the Navy in the late 1970s and was involved in negotiations with the Soviet Union in the 1980s. In other words, he was in the thick of it, so to speak, during the Cold War. Most curiously of all, however, when it comes to Woolsey is his connections to the neoconservative foreign policy movement and his penchant for promoting various conspiratorial fears about foreign countries even prior to the publication of Operation Dragon. A member of the notoriously hawkish neocon think tank The Project for a New American Century (PNAC) before its dissolution in 2006, Woolsey has stoked fears that North Korea could use electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapons against the United States and was also a notable proponent of the theory that al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein's Iraq were involved in the Oklahoma City Bombing. Since the publication of Operation Dragon, Woolsey has appeared on the right-wing outlet Newsmax to promote his theory about the Kennedy assassination. This, combined with his neoconservative inclinations and conspiratorial musings that align quite well with the bolstering of a hawkish, pro-war agenda, raises the question of Woolsey's political motivations in promoting what The Daily Beast has referred to as a "QAnon-style spin" on the Kennedy assassination. Joining us to pushback against Woolsey's JFK assassination theory and place it within the context of his hawkish neocon history is returning guest James DiEugenio, the leading figure behind the website Kennedys and King, writer for the upcoming Oliver Stone documentary JFK Revisited: Through the Looking Glass, and author of such books as Destiny Betrayed: JFK, Cuba, and the Garrison Case, Reclaiming Parkland: Tom Hanks, Vincent Bugliosi, and the JFK Assassination in the New Hollywood, and The JFK Assassination. DiEugenio argues that not only is Woolsey's Kennedy assassination theory wrong, but that it is representative of a certain brand of foreign policy thinking in Washington, D.C. that sociologist C. Wright Mills would refer to as "crackpot realism". Before delving into Operation Dragon, however, Jim fills us in on the latest news concerning the fight to declassify and release the last of the JFK records. We discuss how President Trump, despite at times signaling to the contrary, helped keep the records declassified during his Presidency. Now said records and their review for declassification lay in the hands of President Joe Biden. Then we shift our attention to Operation Dragon and discuss the problems with the book's claims that theoretical physicist and "Father of the Atomic Bomb" J. Robert Oppenheimer and British Prime Minister Clement Attlee were secretly Soviet spies, the relationship between Woolsey's theories on the Kremlin and the paranoid "Monster Plot" of the CIA's James Jesus Angleton, a brief history of neoconservatism, Woolsey's neocon credentials, the relationship between the narrative of the Cold War promoted by Woolsey and the ideas of the far right-wing John Birch Society, James Angleton and the origins of the idea that Lee Harvey Oswald was a KGB agent or asset,, Operation Dragon as a retread of the narrative put forth in Edward Jay Epstein's 1992 book Legend: The Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald, Norman Cousins and the quest for détente with Khrushchev's Soviet Union, French journalist Jean Daniel's meeting with Fidel Castro in Havana on the day of Kennedy's assassination , Kennedy and rapprochement negotiations with Cuba, Khrushchev and Castro's reactions to the assassination, why neither the Soviet Union or Cuba benefitted from Kennedy's assassination, former Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Nitze's Cold War ideology and the rise of neoconservatism, neoconservatism as an ideology that has now slipped into both the Republican and Democratic Parties, "crackpot realism" in the killing of Gaddafi in Libya and the U.S. intervention in Assad's Syria, Barack Obama and the CIA's classified weapons supply and training program in Syria known as "Timber Sycamore", the Project for American Century's agenda, George HW Bush's comments calling the neocons "the crazies in the basement" of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, the notion that Henry Kissinger and Henry Kissinger were "soft" on Communism during the Cold War, neocons as constantly seeking pretexts for war, the late Russian studies scholar Stephen F. Cohen vs. Richard Pipes on the Soviet Union, Nixon and Kissinger as being to the right of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher on Mikhail Gorbachev, neocons and the Australia nuclear submarines deal as part of a geopolitical strategy against China, "Noble Lies" and the selling of wars, NATO's expansion and the lack of historical context provided by crackpot realism in foreign policy, Woolsey's book as a psyop, PNAC member Robert Kagan and his wife Victoria Nuland's involvement in U.S. foreign policy related to Ukraine, the neocon agenda as bankrupting the U.S. and destroying social programs vis-à-vis war spending, and, much, much more.
Join me this week as I dive into the presidential administration of one of our most complicated and controversial figures, Thomas Jefferson. A man filled with contradictions, Jefferson could be both a brilliant visionary and a walking hypocrite. He supported limited government, until the Louisiana Purchase; opposed the Alien and Sedition Acts until he was attacked. Complex and challenging, Jefferson remains one of the most interesting and controversial figures in American history.

This week, President Joe Biden rolled out a large-scale federal mandate requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for two-thirds of the American workforce, impacting more than 100 million people across the public and private sectors. Some lawmakers have already called the mandate unconstitutional, and Arizona is the first state to sue to block it. This week on The Experiment: As the struggle between individual liberty and public safety rages, we revisit the story of the first Supreme Court battle over vaccines, waged more than 100 years ago. This episode of The Experiment originally ran on March 25, 2021. A transcript of this episode will soon be made available. Please check back.

Today on the Zeoli Show, President Biden is losing support in the core groups that got him elected after his decree of a vaccine mandate through OSHA. Black and other minority groups that helped get him the Presidency in 2020 show no support for such mandates and are now flipping on the President. Democrats should be getting worried about 2022 and beyond. Photo by: Getty Images/ Pool See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Biden administration has had a rough couple of weeks politically speaking to say the least. President Biden's chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan leading to a drone strike that unintentionally killed 10 Afghan civilians is just the latest controversy in the Presidency. Now comes infighting within his own party on what to do with the huge $5.2 trillion infrastructure bill that has caused a split in the Democratic party.
