Frame It Why do I feel this way?   Philippians 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.   1. The Lord Jesus   8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.   2. Your Thoughts   10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.    3. People who care   11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.   4. Hope   James 1:2–4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything   5. Growth   Funnel It Where should I direct it?   Nehemiah 8:1-12 all the people came together as one in the square before the Water Gate. They told Ezra the teacher of the Law to bring out the Book of the Law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded for Israel. 2 So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand. 3 He read it aloud from daybreak till noon as he faced the square before the Water Gate in the presence of the men, women and others who could understand. And all the people listened attentively to the Book of the Law. 4 Ezra the teacher of the Law stood on a high wooden platform built for the occasion. Beside him on his right stood Mattithiah, Shema, Anaiah, Uriah, Hilkiah and Maaseiah; and on his left were Pedaiah, Mishael, Malkijah, Hashum, Hashbaddanah, Zechariah and Meshullam. 5 Ezra opened the book. All the people could see him because he was standing above them; and as he opened it, the people all stood up. 6 Ezra praised the Lord, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, “Amen! Amen!” Then they bowed down and worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground. 7 The Levites—Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan and Pelaiah—instructed the people in the Law while the people were standing there. 8 They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people understood what was being read. 9 Then Nehemiah the governor, Ezra the priest and teacher of the Law, and the Levites who were instructing the people said to them all, “This day is holy to the Lord your God. Do not mourn or weep.” For all the people had been weeping as they listened to the words of the Law. 10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” 11 The Levites calmed all the people, saying, “Be still, for this is a holy day. Do not grieve.” 12 Then all the people went away to eat and drink, to send portions of food and to celebrate with great joy, because they now understood the words that had been made known to them.   1. Listening to God's Word 2. Praising and Worshiping God 3. Coming together as one with God's people 4. Be Still 5. Celebrate   Filter It What does the gospel say to it?   Luke 2 8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.   Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

It is one of the most infamous political scandals in United States history; a massive conspiracy to spy on political rivals, influence voters and secure the presidential victory of one man, leading to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Watergate is such a large and widespread political cover up, I couldn't possibly do it on my own.

Edwin Benjamin Kaiser was a thrill-seeking patriot who became enmeshed with many of America's biggest conspiracies, the full significance of which is pieced together and explored in this exciting account by his son, Scott Kaiser. Through handwritten letters and contact book entries left by Edwin Kaiser, and a bevy of discovered government documents, an exciting puzzle forms around the life of a man who was at once a patriot, an arms smuggler, a revolutionary leader, an assassin, and a husband and father. In the 1970s Edwin was the military head of an anti-Castro movement called Cubanos Unidos, and during his life he was frequently in contact with Frank Sturgis—during which time Edwin confessed to the author an assassination plot against President Nixon and confirmed Sturgis' role in the death of JFK. This thrilling mix of paramilitary bravado, government conspiracy, family history, and firsthand anecdote shows how Edwin Kaiser was willing to lay it all on the line to accomplish what he thought was right.about 1 year ago #a, #and, #assassin, #burglar, #ed, #edwin, #jfk, #kaiser, #opperman, #report, #spreaker, #was, #watergate

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, no news is good news when it comes to the elite American media machine, which is similar to state-run media pushing the propaganda of the communist Chinese government on CCTV says Habi Zhang. Then, according to the Tennessee Star, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, election records were destroyed faster than the state law requires. Multiple videos show officials flippantly getting rid of election information. This reinforces an email from Christina Iacono read by this program in November of 2020 highlighting votes that could not be counted and ballots that had chain of custody issues. These issues were ignored by the U.S Attorney of Pennsylvania and the Attorney General's Office, yet Bill Barr claimed that no such issues were raised or brought to the Department of Justice. So why didn't the DOJ conduct an investigation? Later, in a massive ruse, NYC moves allow non-citizens to vote. This will eventually open the door for non-citizens to vote in state and federal elections as well. With the democrats pushing for same-day registration and lowering the voting age to 16, Democrats will be unstoppable. Afterward, President Biden has taken 50M barrels of oil from the country's strategic petroleum reserve. The rising cost of gas is because Biden stopped drilling on federal land, stopped fracking, and closed pipelines, a problem he says is a myth. Fossil fuel is necessary to produce almost everything. Finally, former Watergate Counsel and White House fellow Geoff Shepard joins the show to discuss his new book "The Nixon Conspiracy: Watergate and the Plot to Remove the President." He reveals that a cabal of anti-Nixon prosecutors and judges created the falsehood that Nixon was part of a Watergate cover-up, however, this wasn't known for 45 years. Shepard has filed charges against the attorney for their misconduct. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Ex-stripper Heidi Rikan was working for the mob in Washington, DC. White House Call Girl tells how a call girl operation she was running at the time led to the Watergate break-in, which brought down Tricky Dick Nixon himself. Needless to say, this is not part of the usual Watergate story that has come down to us over the decades. It is also only fair to point out that this version of the story might be dismissed out of hand as being dangerous "revisionist" history. If you're not careful, you might end up being called a conspiracy theorist. You can also be called crazy—which is what happened to a young lawyer named Phillip Bailley, one of the principal witnesses to this ignored bit of American history. When he was foolish enough to blow the whistle on Rikan and her call girl ring, he was locked up at St. Elizabeth's, the District of Columbia's mental hospital, in the ward for the criminally insane. For forty years we've only heard the Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein perspective on Watergate. Now we've got the photographs for the revisionist model. What's more, we've got Heidi's little black book. White House Call Girl was published last season in an eBook edition only. The paperback edition includes new information on the murder of call girl—and playmate of Vice President Spiro Agnew—Pat Adams.

Do not mourn or weep.” For all the people had been weeping as they listened to the words of the Law.10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared.

From the days of Joshua son of Nun until that day, the Israelites had not celebrated it like this. And their joy was very great.18 Day after day, from the first day to the last, Ezra read from the Book of the Law of God. They celebrated the festival for seven days, and on the eighth day, in accordance with the regulation, there was an assembly.Nehemiah 8:9-18—Give towards what God is doing through Passion City Church: https://passioncitychurch.com/give-online—Subscribe to our channel to see more messages from Passion City Church:https://www.youtube.com/passioncitychurch1—Looking for content for your Kids?

When Richard Nixon won his second presidential term in 1972 defeating George McGovern in 1972, he was at the height of his popularity. The previous year he had captured the public mood when he addressed the nation's fears about the growing economic stagnation that America had begun to experience at the end ofthe 1960s. He had successfully negotiated with both Mao and Brezhnev earlier that year and offered many Americans the prospect of a withdrawal from Vietnam without humiliation. The break in at the Watergate hotel had not attracted many headlines by the time of the January 1973 inauguration, but within seventeen months, Nixon's presidency was over and he left the White House in disgrace.Explaining History Podcast listeners are eligible for a 10% discount on all history book orders from Story Tellers Bookshop (email Katie@storytellersinc.co.uk and quote Explaining History) See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Selah8   Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!    O Israel, if you would but listen to me!9   There shall be no strange god among you;    you shall not bow down to a foreign god.10   I am the LORD your God,    who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.    Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it. 11   “But my people did not listen to my voice;    Israel would not submit to me.12   So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,    to follow their own counsels.13   Oh, that my people would listen to me,    that Israel would walk in my ways!14   I would soon subdue their enemies    and turn my hand against their foes.15   Those who hate the LORD would cringe toward him,    and their fate would last forever.16   But he would feed you5 with the finest of the wheat,    and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” Rescue the Weak and Needy A Psalm of Asaph. 82   God has taken his place in the divine council;    in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:2   “How long will you judge unjustly    and show partiality to the wicked? Selah3   Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;    maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.4   Rescue the weak and the needy;    deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” 5   They have neither knowledge nor understanding,    they walk about in darkness;    all the foundations of the earth are shaken. 6   I said, “You are gods,    sons of the Most High, all of you;7   nevertheless, like men you shall die,    and fall like any prince.”6 8   Arise, O God, judge the earth;    for you shall inherit all the nations!

And when the seventh month had come, the people of Israel were in their towns. Ezra Reads the Law 8 And all the people gathered as one man into the square before the Water Gate. And they told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses that the LORD had commanded Israel. 2 So Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, both men and women and all who could understand what they heard, on the first day of the seventh month. 3 And he read from it facing the square before the Water Gate from early morning until midday, in the presence of the men and the women and those who could understand. And the ears of all the people were attentive to the Book of the Law. (ESV) Nehemiah 8:5–18 (Listen) 5 And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was above all the people, and as he opened it all the people stood. 6 And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God, and all the people answered, “Amen, Amen,” lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground. 7 Also Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, the Levites,1 helped the people to understand the Law, while the people remained in their places. 8 They read from the book, from the Law of God, clearly,2 and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading. This Day Is Holy 9 And Nehemiah, who was the governor, and Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who taught the people said to all the people, “This day is holy to the LORD your God; do not mourn or weep.” For all the people wept as they heard the words of the Law. 10 Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” 11 So the Levites calmed all the people, saying, “Be quiet, for this day is holy; do not be grieved.” 12 And all the people went their way to eat and drink and to send portions and to make great rejoicing, because they had understood the words that were declared to them. Feast of Booths Celebrated 13 On the second day the heads of fathers' houses of all the people, with the priests and the Levites, came together to Ezra the scribe in order to study the words of the Law. 14 And they found it written in the Law that the LORD had commanded by Moses that the people of Israel should dwell in booths3 during the feast of the seventh month, 15 and that they should proclaim it and publish it in all their towns and in Jerusalem, “Go out to the hills and bring branches of olive, wild olive, myrtle, palm, and other leafy trees to make booths, as it is written.” 16 So the people went out and brought them and made booths for themselves, each on his roof, and in their courts and in the courts of the house of God, and in the square at the Water Gate and in the square at the Gate of Ephraim. 17 And all the assembly of those who had returned from the captivity made booths and lived in the booths, for from the days of Jeshua the son of Nun to that day the people of Israel had not done so. And there was very great rejoicing. 18 And day by day, from the first day to the last day, he read from the Book of the Law of God. They kept the feast seven days, and on the eighth day there was a solemn assembly, according to the rule.

And he went up on the mountain and sat down there. 30 And great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute, and many others, and they put them at his feet, and he healed them, 31 so that the crowd wondered, when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled healthy, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they glorified the God of Israel. Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand 32 Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion on the crowd because they have been with me now three days and have nothing to eat. And I am unwilling to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.” 33 And the disciples said to him, “Where are we to get enough bread in such a desolate place to feed so great a crowd?” 34 And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven, and a few small fish.” 35 And directing the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over. 38 Those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And after sending away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan.

On this edition of Parallax Views, it's a Halloween hangover episode where politics and horror movies collide! Martin Harris, author of Leatherface vs. Tricky Dick: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre as Political Satire, joins me to examine filmmaker Tobe Hooper's 1974 cult classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre in the context of the turbulent political scandal it was made in the midst of: Watergate and the fall of President Richard Milhouse Nixon. Believe it or not, Hooper himself made references to how his infamous film was influenced by the political climate of the 1970s. Much was going on when the film was being made. U.S. economic woes were increasing while gas shortages impacted the nation. The leftovers of the psychedelic 60s counterculture were wondering about in the aftermath of the Manson Family killings and Altamont. The Vietnam War was winding down but its effect on the American psyche was looming large. The rural/urban divide was growing. And Richard Nixon, with the help of his cronies like G. Gordon Liddy, plotted to break-in to the Democratic National Convention in what would become of the biggest scandal in American political history. Harris and I discuss all this and much more in this fascinating conversation that also delves into the parallels between Leatherface and Richard Nixon, the character of "The Old Man" (played by Jim Siedow) in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Richard Nixon, Irving Kristol's "The Nightmare of Watergate" and the irrationality of Watergate, the dark comedy of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a historical overview of the Watergate scandal and the way it was experienced by Americans at the time, Gerald Ford's comments about Watergate as "our long national nightmare", Hunter S. Thompson's commentaries on Watergate and his invocation of the horrific and grotesque when writing about it,  "Saturn in Retrograde" and the implications of the cosmic in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, satires of the Nixon era as it was happening, the infamous White House "Saturday Night Massacre" under Nixon, the valence of Tobe Hooper and Kim Henkel's production company being called Vortex Inc., the circularity of both The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Watergate wherein the "horror folds in on itself", the chilling opening of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and the narration by John Larroquette, criminal discovery in Watergate and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, the villains of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre as conspirators engaged in cover-ups of crimes, the character of "The Hitchhiker" (played by Edwin Neal), the Leatherface mask and the Nixon mask, Leatherface's formality of dress (ie: tie and suit), tensions between "old ways" and "new ways" and tradition vs. youth in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Nixon and the Southern Strategy, Tobe Hooper's experimental film Eggshells and its relationship to the 1960s counterculture, the power of the Presidency and draconian measures in the Nixon era, the rise of astrology and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, political lies and the lie that The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was "based on a true story", the popularity of astrology in times of uncertainty and Nixon's relationship with astrologer Jeane Dixon, political allegory vs. political satire, satire as a means to comment on real life matters in indirect ways, and much, more!

Michael Sandel is a political philosopher and professor of government theory at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has also presented the BBC Radio 4 series The Public Philosopher and The Global Philosopher, in which he examines the thinking behind a current controversy. His books have tackled the idea of meritocracy and the moral limits of markets, and he has been described as a “philosopher with the global profile of a rock star.” Michael grew up in Minnesota until the age of 13 when his family relocated to Los Angeles. As a boy he was fascinated by politics and he invited Ronald Reagan, who was then governor of California, to take part in a debate at his school. During his university studies he took an internship at the Houston Chronicle and covered the Watergate scandal, sitting in on the Supreme court deliberations and subsequent impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill. Later, while he was studying as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University he was, as he puts it, “seduced by philosophy”. Justice, the course he devised at Harvard, is one of the most popular in the university's history – thousands of students apply to attend in person and tens of millions watch his classes online.

A favorite regular feature was Bug House Square based on the “loonies” who stood on a soapbox in Washington Square Park to be heard. Catherine opened the radio lines to take calls asking people questions from many many people who just wanted to talk about themselves. These folks waited a long time on the phone - sometimes an hour or more - just for the chance to be heard.The lesson for Catherine: how to approach people and what we need from each otherToday we still need to be seen and heard6:20 to 17:25       A Bit of Back Story: Radio Broadcasting CareerI'm a child of radio. I remember my mother listening to a morning broadcast out of New York City called Rambling With Gambling. In my law school years I drove home from class listening to the old Lux Radio Hour episodes like The Green Hornet and Yukon King; the sorts of programs what my dad listened to. Q: So, before we get to your professional speaking and coaching practice and your book, Show Up & Shine, I'd like to know a bit about what brought you to radio in the first place. Question: Would you tell us what was the draw about radio for you?His name was Byron.When Catherine was a freshman at Valparaiso University majoring in nursing a fellow in her dorm suggested Catherine go on campus radio because she had the voice for itThis idea was opposite of how Catherine saw herselfCatherine went to the audition because she had a crush on Byron and ended up getting the gig and he didn'tCatherine stumbled into radio on the campus station: The Station on the Tracks - next to the freight train tracksCatherine was shown what to do and told, “Now just be sexy.”Over time Catherine has built 3 different careers on her voiceLesson: we often don't know our gift until someone holds a mirror upQuestion: What came naturally to you to be able to sit in a studio to learn about and then become a radio broadcaster?Catherine is curious about a lot of things and about peopleAsking questions and listening to what people sayCatherine always loved wordsConfused parents when she decided to go into nursingAnd then things changed: make yourself available for another opportunityHost: This is how the road goes: we walk until we can't. Fortunately, someone pointed out a never considered  opportunityWhen Catherine decided to change majors and schools to get her degree in broadcasting the head of the department told her “no place for gals in broadcasting.”At that moment Catherine said, “Watch me!”And, what happened next?Catherine dug in, studied and worked her way in only 4 years' time from graduation to WLS Radio Chicago, a major market radio station!A gal wound up on a major broadcasting station! It was Catherine. So there!Catherine eventually got her own showQuestion: If a listener is thinking about making a leap into radio or some such place where “gals might not make it” what are highlights that made it all worthwhile, for youCatherine loves conversationRadio is all about conversationCatherine got lucky at WLS Chicago with the advent of ensemble morning show radio conceptInstead of being the News Gal Catherine had an opportunity to develop conversation on the airCatherine earned Side Chick exposure because Larry Lujack (the host) created space for herLarry Lujack, also called Superjock, Lawrence of Chicago, Uncle Lar, and King of the Corn Belt, was a Top 40 music radio disc jockey who was well known for his world-weary sarcastic styleIf a story was interesting, funny, or entertaining Catherine was in the spotlight where she learned to the craft of telling the story, bringing in the listeners and knowing when to stop Practical Tip: Knowing when to stop: most people “get high” on energy, excitement, and take it too farCatherine learned the brilliant Power of the PauseCatherine's mantra: “Say it once, say it well and zip it!”One of the ways people over-talk is by repeating themselvesMake your point well and leave space for the other person to say something, too17:25 to 34:23       Changing the Narrative: Reinventing Yourself -> Speakers Programs The broadcasting world came to an end as so many things do, but like so many successful professional women you chose this opportunity to Begin Anew - you reinvented yourself. You took all that wonderful knowledge, experience, ah ha's and so on and reinvented yourself as professional speaker and coach. Question: Would you let us know how that came about and the experience of moving into the next roll.Catherine got fired, as so many transitions beginRadio had been her life for 25 yearsCatherine wondered if she was able to anything else; but there were no options to quitCatherine herself: what did I really love about radio?Chunking up and chunking downChunking up: looking from the mega perspective at what she did: she is a performerJohn Landecker was another model on WLS ChicagoJohn Records Landecker is an American Top40/oldies disc jockey best known for his trademark saying "Records truly is my middle name" and creating Boogie Check, Americana Panorama, and satirical songs and bits based on current events such as "Make a Date with the Watergate", and "Press My Conference".Chunking down (granular activities): what are the skills, talents, abilities that go into being a Morning Show Side Chick: is curious, asks questions, gathers information, synthesize it, shares what she learns, balanced competing interests, team player, plays well with othersCatherine asked: where to take this tool box outside of a studio, where else to applyCatherine decided she wanted to speak but didn't like professional speakers - too much egoA conversation with a NSA conference attendee revealed her next role: be a trainerCatherine's 2 Practical Tips: Get membership in a professional society to learn and be exposed to people who do what you want to do + realize transitions can be time-consuming and depressing and hard; so stick with it through the rough patchesThis led to Catherine to a presentation skills position and eventually to professional speaker and communication expertHost notes themes of luck and resilience + diligence + mind-set to Begin Anew as well as Catherine's faith that this is the right path as more and more people and venues and opportunities show up. Willingness is hallmark of Catherine's story. Question: I'm curious: which audiences were you drawn to and how come?Professional women who were not yet senior executivesCatherine got her training gig because she was open to peopleWhen we are open to people and recognize that there is the chance for “luck”Story: A friend of a friend of a friend she met in a manicure salon led to an audition in New York; but the feedback was, “Catherine needs work on presentation skills - no eye contact.”Her experience was in radio for 25 years; there is no eye contact in radio; BUT! It was a key skill Catherine could master and meanwhile was hired for her energy to command a roomWhat the employer was looking for was a certain kind of energy and Catherine had itQuestion: Did you know you had this Super Power of commanding a room, an inherent energy?The CEO pointed it out to Catherine that she had the certain kind of energyWhen Catherine began to think about herself as a person who has influence or sway over a group so much made sense, so much fell into placeHost observes the themes of Catherine's follow-up, risk taking, persistence until something tangible rewards that. To be successful with the intimacy of radio one would have to have some form of inherent energy and draw in their voice to keep the listener engaged. Question: What is the difference between energy, vibe, charisma, and presence or are they different ways of saying the same thing and, if so, what is that thing?These words are difficult to defineCatherine thinks of charisma as the energy that happens in interactionWe are charismatic in connection with anotherThe exchange of energy is a charismaMany different ways to have charismaThere is that something you want more ofHost: Maybe it's an energy vibration exchanged between human beings.  We as human beings are exchanging energy and looking for those who are receptive to our energy. Question: Along those lines of connection, you were on a trajectory that would eventually intersect with COVID. As we transition from Zoom to a hybrid way of some online/virtual and some in-person,  What's changed in business, what's the same, what will still be important?34:23 to 36:26       ConclusionHere we are, at the end of the road but not the journey.

Green & Red Goes Hollywood! At Green and Red, we're big fans of popular culture and how it can politicize and radicalize people. We've already done shows on sports and activism, progressive Country music, cancel culture, Socialism and the Sopranos and other such themes. So.....in an upcoming arc, we're going to talk about our favorite political/radical films, television and music. We begin with our list of Classic films, some of the movies that have had an impact on Scott and me, and others, as part of our cultural-cum-political education, and that we'd consider essential. Then we discuss what we call "Bank Robbers and Anti-Heroes," where we cite films that expressed the way capitalism makes people desperate and how they often respond outside the law. We next talked about "Cold War Satire and Red Scare" movies, films which deal with the domestic side of McCarthyism and cultural conformity, and then we end part 1 with one of our favorite categories--"70s Political Thrillers," movies made in the aftermath of Vietnam and Watergate which showed how disillusioned, and legitimately paranoid, Americans had become after the traumas of war and domestic scandal. --------------------------------------------------------- Links// Follow Green and Red// https://linktr.ee/greenandredpodcast Donate to Green and Red Podcast// Become a recurring donor at https://www.patreon.com/greenredpodcast Or make a one time donation here: https://bit.ly/DonateGandR This is a Green and Red Podcast production.

Jill is the first woman to hold the position of General Counsel of the Army, a former DOJ federal prosecutor, author, MSNBC legal analyst and host of the hit podcasts, #SistersInLaw and Intergenerational Politics. Jill's book The Watergate Girl was released last year detailing her career in prosecutions of cases arising out of Watergate. During the interview, Jill details what it was like joining the DOJ on the prosecution team for Watergate and one of the most memorable cross-examinations ever where she examined Richard Nixon's secretary Rose Mary Woods and proved that Wood's story about accidentally deleting portions of Nixon's tape was not possible. After the interview, the brothers discuss what in the world is wrong with Joe Manchin & Kyrsten Sinema, as well as where we stand with the potential government shutdown. To round out the episode, the brothers cover the latest legal troubles with South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem & the bizarre way she's connected with Trump aide Corey Lewandowski, who is facing legal troubles of his own. If you enjoyed today's episode please be sure to rate, review and subscribe.

The 50th anniversary of the Pentagon Papers has brought attention once more to Daniel Ellsberg. His action in 1971 in releasing the Pentagon Papers blew the lid off of Washington's mountain of lies and deceptions about Vietnam and ultimately led to Watergate and Nixon's resignation. In this never before broadcast program we go back into history as Ellsberg describes the origins of the Vietnam War. He traces early U.S. support for the French effort to retain control of its Indochina colony. He talks about U.S. nuclear weapons policy including threats against the Soviet Union as well as Eisenhower's offer of nukes to the French to stave off defeat at Dien Bien Phu in 1954. The U.S. later totally supplanted the French and expanded the war to Laos and Cambodia. Ellsberg looks at the policy of supporting Diem's Saigon regime, first by Kennedy then Johnson. Interview by David Barsamian.

The majority of Americans remember our 37th President Richard Nixon for one thing and one thing only: the Watergate scandal. But there's much more to the man than that. Like him or not, he was one of the most significant figures of the 20th century.
