We suffered a silent coup, while we were comfortable, entertained and distracted; thinking we make choices while the corporatist machine tells us what to consume, for whom to vote, what to believe and whom to fear. An invisible game of political theater lulls us into a soft despotism under the guise of democracy, when in fact we suffer an oligarchy.
Our national government’s policies seem contradictory, incompetent and often dangerous. If we don’t accept their machinations, we comfort ourselves with our precious votes; votes that mean little. In this land of confusion it doesn't mattter whether you pick the blue team or the red team; the end result is the same. After decades of voting the bums out and changing colors, we still have endless war games, monopoly money and a wide array of choices, so long as we choose to stay within the narrow confines of the false left-right paradigm.
A massive paradigm shift is occurring; but, we cannot know what liberty we’ve lost if we prefer the ‘comfort’ of self-inflicted tyranny born of fear, lack of courage and psychological manipulation.
Tyranny is assured UNLESS liberty-loving people band together to restore Constitutional governance by taking out the War Party and restoring sound money, free markets, religious and civil liberties, and a sensible foreign policy of non-interventionism; or watch the statists in both parties push their corporatist agenda to their benefit and our demise. Now is the last chance to stop those who perpetuate an empire abroad and a police state at home. To defeat the lawless hordes of Cultural Marxists, statists, collectivists, oligarchs, useful idiots and their fellow travelers especially the Democrats-first you MUST CRUSH the Neocons, for liberty!

This series is using world history to help us, as Progressives think about, discuss,plan and carry out actions and activities as activists within 12 blocks of where we live. We have a very short time to become the citizen patriots our nation calls us to be during this November's elections.
History can inform, illustrate, and highlight both causes and effects from a national or international perspective. In case you missed it, 3/4 of the entire world population is looking to America as their last, best hope for freedom. Tyranny is very much alive and well, and many would claim that statement to be true right here in the USA. Can history inform us? Will we dare, as citizen to look at, evaluate, process and understand our history well enough, soon enough to make our future history reflect our current realities, goals, plans and dreams as Americans?
November's election will surely answer that question. Which answer do you wish it to be, and which answer should it, in fact, be? In this episode, we are going to frame our discorse around the period of World War and Depression. WWI (The Great War), The Great Depression, and WW II have much to teach in in terms of who we were, who we are today, and who we could become tomorrow.
Many in today's American Society talk as if solutions used during these historic times would be preferred for those who find themselves living in a time, a condition, and a land they barely recognize. Fear of power is real, and palpable--and possibly for a very good reason. As the November election approaches, the important question this show always tries to address comes clearly into view:
What are YOU going to do about it?

Welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning, we will be discussing the following topics:
SEGMENT 1: THEY FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
With more and more states acknowledging same sex marriages, Republicans have been unusually quiet as of late. What does this mean? Have they finally accepted a person’s right to love whomever they want?
SEGMENT 2: TIME FOR A CHANGE?
In a democracy, every citizen should have the right to vote, but if you are a felon, your right to vote is either denied completely or restricted. Is it time for a change?
SEGMENT 3: THE RIGHT TO VOTE
In 2000 despite winning the popular vote, Al Gore lost to George W. Bush mainly due to the non sense that happened in Florida. The Electoral College officially elects the POTUS & VPOTUS, but critics argue that the system gives certain states aka “swing states” an unfair advantage. Is it time to do away with this out of date system?
Qatar Awareness Campaign: What and Why?
The State of Qatar is one of the preeminent sponsors of terrorism in the world today. The Qatari ruling family, the al-Thanis, also operate a virtual slave state, exploiting foreign workers while routinely withholding their pay, and even denying them exit visas. The Qataris have numerous links to the Taliban, as well as the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence Agency; they are the financiers and financial recipients of Boko Haram's terrorist and smuggling activities. In the years preceding 9/11, Qatar was host to 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohamed. Finally, the government of Qatar has been a prominent supporter of the Syrian rebels, including the rebels who have become the genocidal Islamic State.
The Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition is an ad hoc group of journalists, retired military, publishers, and activists who are helping to spread awareness concerning the influence of Qatar - a state sponsor of terrorism - in the United States. The Coalition consists of several experts on matters such as national security, Islamic terrorism, and transnational organized crime. Its members consider the Qatari influence on American foreign policy to be a major threat to national security and world peace. There are many articles of potential interest, but this may be a good place to start because it ties Qatar in with the Pakistani ISI and the Mumbai mafia. Visit this website to learn

The political landscape in America is much different than it was in 2005 when the nine-year-old Democracy Alliance was founded. The secretive club for radical millionaires and billionaires who want to turn America into Greece was founded soon after John Kerry’s unexpected defeat in the 2004 presidential election.

GRAPHIC LANGUAGE WARNING. LISTENER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
The international struggle for human justice is the subject. #Ferguson, Missouri and the Occupied Territories of the Gaza have many similarities as well as many differences. Why are committed activists deeply involved within their respective struggles now quarrelling over whether or not the arbitrary killing of young African men in the US by law enforcement officers can and should be connected to the genocidal practises of the Jewish State in the Levant against Indigenous Palestinians (#JSIL).
