Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. Join us this week as we explore the moral fringes of fandom, or, in other words: To download or not to download, that is the question! In this changing world of digital distribution and cordcutting and rising utility costs, where exactly is the line between a reacting audience member and a jilted consumer? Grim talks to Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals (author of Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, and Adult Entertainment) and Nate Glass (founder of Takedown Piracy), plus the guys remember the blockbusters of 1985 (arguably the Greatest Summer in Cinema, a full THIRTY years ago now!) and how they affect what we're seeing in the theaters (and/or on our laptops) today. You can either listen to it for free on Blogtalk.com and iTunes, or maybe you can steal it from a sketchy Russian site called "www.FreePodcastStuxnetListenNow.com/virus." This is America; it's your choice.
Stowaways, poaching, piracy, smuggling, and murder - the global commons of the open ocean is as wild of a place as it is vast.
Using as a baseline his series on lawlessness on the high seas in the New York Times, The Outlaw Ocean, our guest for the full hour to discuss the anarchy of crime and violence on the high seas in the 21st Century will be Ian Ubina.
Ian is a reporter for The New York Times, based in the paper’s Washington bureau. He has degrees in history from Georgetown University and the University of Chicago, and his writings, which range from domestic and foreign policy to commentary on everyday life, have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, Harper’s, and elsewhere.
Guests: Steve Quayle & Financial Expert Ross Powell
We were one of the first sources in the new media to report on the global financial elite’s plan to “kill the dollar” as part of a larger plan to confiscate your wealth and implement a global financial system. The plan to “kill the dollar” is not some fringe conspiracy, but are the words spoken by a senior member of the Obama White House during an interview with economist Kyle Bass in 2011. Responding to a question about U.S. exports and wages, this unnamed official provided the critical context of everything we see playing out right now in just seven words: “We’re just going to kill the dollar.”
The agenda of the global financial elite, the tactics that will be used for the criminalization of cash, the ultimate confiscation of our wealth created by our life’s work and toil, and the ushering in of a digital, global currency was exposed for all to hear. Despite the obvious clarity of this statement and everything it implies, the corporate media remains complicity silent in the face of the greatest theft and transfer of wealth in the history of the world.
The fate of America’s economy, as well as the global economy, has already been determined. What remains and what we see playing out across different venues, from the militarization of police and military exercises within the U.S., the various executive orders and legislation, the attempt to accelerate the Trans Pacific Partnership through the TPA to consolidate power at the Executive Branch, and the January passage of the 2015 federal budget bill neatly connect the dots of a sinister process of the ultimate subjugation of all Americans who are not already seated at the table of the globalists.
“Piracy is typically an act of robbery or criminal violence at sea. The term can include acts committed on land, in the air, or in other major bodies of water or on a shore. It does not normally include crimes committed against people traveling on the same vessel as the perpetrator (e.g. one passenger stealing from others on the same vessel). The term has been used throughout history to refer to raids across land borders by non-state agents.”
“Piracy or pirating is the name of a specific crime under customary international law and also the name of a number of crimes under the municipal law of a number of states. It is distinguished from privateering, which is authorized by national authorities and therefore a legitimate form of war-like activity by non-state actors. Privateering is considered commerce raiding, and was outlawed by the Peace of Westphalia (1648) for signatories to those treaties.”
“Those who engage in acts of piracy are called pirates. In the 21st century, the international community is facing many problems in bringing pirates to justice.” ~ Courtesy of Wikipedia.org
In case you haven't noticed, personal privacy, for the most part, does not exist anymore. Most large retail businesses have full surveillance systems. The highways and roads are replete with traffic cameras; satellites watch all of our streets; our government is bent on recording and storing our emails, texts and phone conversations; and criminals are having a hackaton on our computers and smart devices for fun and ill-gotten gains. Heck, if you have a smartwatch on, Google knows when you go to the bathroom!
What can people do to get some of their privacy back? How can the average Joe or Jane make any head way against the loss of privacy when the government, big business and criminals are all out to monitor our every move or are stealing our personal information? If you’re sick and tired of the big three (government, businesses and criminals) hacking your life, tune in and turn on to Working The Web To Win's broadcast of "The Piracy of Privacy," where you'll learn what you can do now to turn the tide against a world bent on fulfilling a 1984 reality.

This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
Tonight we discuss privacy on the web versus illegal piracy activity. Lionsgate film studio has been allowed to subpoena companies to help it find those who pirated copies of The Expendables 3. They will now ask companies including Google and GoDaddy to find the sharers' identities. Third parties also subpoenad include CloudFlare, Incapsula, Google, GoDaddy and Domains by Proxy LLC. Lionsgate may demand the production of electronically stored information such as billing records, website content, server logs and correspondence. To many, this flies in the face of privacy concerns that are very hot right now. Tune in to hear where this falls on the “legally allowable” versus “internet privacy" spectrum.

We have heard from industry, military leaders, Marines, and private security providers, this Sunday we are going to look at piracy at a more personal level with director Thymaya Payne of the documentary, Stolen Seas; Tales of Somali Piracy. He will be our guest for the full hour.
From the show promo:
The filmmakers have spent the past three years traveling to some of the world's most violent locales in order to make this documentary on Somali piracy, Stolen Seas. Utilizing exclusive interviews and unparalleled access to real pirates, hostages, hostages' relatives, ship-owners, pirate negotiators and experts on piracy and international policy, Stolen Seas presents a chilling exploration of the Somali pirate phenomenon.
The film throws the viewer, through audio recordings and found video, right into the middle of the real-life hostage negotiation of a Danish shipping vessel, the CEC Future. As the haggling between the ship's stoic owner Per Gullestrup, and the pirate's loquacious negotiator, Ishmael Ali, drags on for 70 days, these two adversaries' relationship takes an unexpected turn and an unlikely friendship is born.
Stolen Seas is an eye opening refutation of preconceived ideas on how or why piracy has become the world's most frightening multi-million dollar growth industry.
We are living in the Last Days. Man is trying to become God. Scientists are trying to merge humans and computers. Home technologies are spying on you inside your very home. During these last days there are threats of war, violence, sex, drugs, and all manner of wickedness taking place. In Revelation 14, the Angels had a message for mankind. What was it and how does it affect us during these last days?
