    Unwelcome Guests #724 "Calling a SCAD, a SCAD"

    See: http://www.unwelcomeguests.net/UNWELCOME_GUESTS

    PARTIAL SUMMARY: Our main talk this week is a 90 minute lecture by Professor Lance deHaven-Smith. His lecture is relaxed and he takes occasional questions from the audience. He begins his talk by outlining the difficulties he has had finding US publishers for his work. While peer reviewers rarely challenged its quality, US journals in particular were loathe to publish it, apologetically turning him away. He explains this by its forthrightness, and he names Chris Hedges and Noam Chomsky as two individuals who while they do not shy away from drawing attention to the misdeeds of the leaders of the US government, are nevertheless reluctant to explicitly call them crimes - never mind to face the truth of false flag attacks. Many government leaders, he says are not merely morally deficient, they are criminals and murderers - and we should face up to that.

    Noam Chomsky Interview

    in Blogs

    My interview with Noam Chomsky. We talk about ethical compromises, and government actions without vision or wisdom which is creating terrible consequences and feedback loops. We also talk about the Drone killings, the US terrorist manufacturing campaigns, the dangerous indoctrination and conditioning of soldiers and the public, Navy Seals killing Bin Laden who was only a suspect and the Polio vaccine horror in Pakistan  resulting from the fake vaccine programme used to find Bin Laden. We cover the Sadistic Guantanamo torture, we talk of fear, and the great danger of our government and our own collective psychosis...and more.

    Noam Chomsky/Layne Redmond on Voices of the Sacred Feminine

    in Politics Progressive

    Tune in tonight as I chat with Noam Chomsky, noted philosopher, political critic, activist and long-time professor at MIT.  Noam has written extensively on politics, war, corporatism and the mass media.  Prof. Chomsky has been described as a prominent cultural fiture and he was voted the "world's top  public intellectual in 2005."  Topics might include:  His views on the role of feminism in today's society, government repression and our loss of civil liberties, including Obama's continuation of the Patriot Act.  What he thinks of the Affordable Health Care Act, his views on the distinction, if any, between Democrats vs Republicans. I'll inquire if  thinks Americans are being primed for a new war and what we as citizens can do to stem the tide of losing worker rights, voting rights, women's rights and the dumbing down of America.
    Crossing the threshold into the second half of the show, Layne Redmond, beloved drummer and author of the book, When the Drummers Were Women, returns to tell us about her new project  - the Sacred Path of the Bee and the awakening of Bee Priestesses in contemporary times.

    in Politics Progressive

    Once again, I am thrilled and honored to bring Noam Chomsky to Wild Wild Left Radio.   Professor Emeritus at MIT, linguist, political activist and philosopher, author of over 100 books, and winner of this year's Global Exchange Human Rights Award, Noam is arguably one of the best and most dedicated minds of our generation.
    Noam has called Snowden a hero, adding his name on the petition to Ecuador President Rafael Correa to grant political asylum to him.  He has publicly stated that the NSA considers the primary enemy of the US to be we, the US citizens.
    Tonight, he joins us to give his thoughts about the surveillance state, Snowden, and the freedom of reporters like Glenn Greenwald to report the illegal activities of our own government without fear.
