LUMPENPROLETARIAT—[Wednesday, 10 AUG 2022] Here are some of today’s media/press notes to help us track and make sense of this plandemic dystopia we all find ourselves living through in the 2020s, including inverted totalitarianism, the post-COVID-19 controlled demolition of the global economy, the rise of neo-feudalism, houseless encampments of the neo-peasantry, and human-induced climate change leading to a climate crisis of melting ice caps, record heatwaves, tornadoes, floods, drought, drying rivers, and other extreme weather events, which threaten life on Earth. Let’s learn together and find solutions together. Let’s build working class solidarity. Let’s build human solidarity. (Please see below for samples of today’s news cycle.)
Other salient observations:
- “One Nation Under Blackmail” by Unlimited Hangout with Whitney Webb [via Rokfin], 10 AUG 2022. [1hr 31min 04sec] “In this episode, Whitney gives an overview of her upcoming book, One Nation Under Blackmail, discussing in general terms what the book covers, it’s thesis […]” Putting #JeffreyEpstein in historical context, particularly vis a vis intelligence agencies. [L33]
- ‘Top Ten Cities Where Housing Prices Will Crash…’ by Reventure Consulting, 10 AUG 2022. [L3]
- “The fight for water | DW Documentary” by DW documentary, 10 AUG 2022. (Additional notes on this documentary below.)
- “Clip – Neil Oliver Wakes Up With Dr Tess Lawrie” by Neil Oliver, 10 AUG 2022. (Additional notes on this interview below.)

COMMENTS: I’m not looking forward to listening to another hour of this reformist gaslighting, Democrat Party apologia, and mealy-mouthed critique of the status quo. [ 1 ]

NOTES: [L6] Michael G. Haskins appealing for listener-sponsorship | (c. 1:00) Introduction … program recorded ‘late 9 AUG 2022’ … ‘attack on libraries across the country by the far-right’
COMMENTS: I’m not looking forward to listening to another hour of this reformist gaslighting, Democrat Party apologia, and mealy-mouthed critique of the status quo. Bring back Guns and Butter with Bonnie Faulkner, which used to air at this time. This sounds like another hour of liberal bias. Yes, the far-right gives us much to critique. But that’s obvious. Meanwhile, censorship and fascism by Democrats is obfuscated.

Yet, no info provided. Simply, a cheesy ‘See ya!’ from the annoying, mousy Miko Tolliver(sp?). Of course, this news comes in the context of Kat Brooks returning to the KPFA airwaves at 8 am, perhaps, weekdays after UpFront. Law & Disorder is the new program, which sounds similar to another program elsewhere on Pacifica Radio, perhaps WBAI or WPFW. I expect more liberal bias from Kat Brooks, aligned with BET’s faction whilst masquerading as not reformist or masquerading as revolutionary.

12:00 PDT, KPFA > Against the Grain with C.S. Soong
Quotations from radio archive description: “Forms of Emancipation” | “If emancipation is what we seek, what form should it take? How far can legal reforms and rights decrees take us toward a better world? Peter Burdon mines Marx’s “On the Jewish Question” essay for insights into how to think about emancipation and whether legal initiatives can deliver true freedom and equality. | International Journal for the Semiotics of Law | Peter Burdon, Earth Jurisprudence: Private Property and the Environment Routledge, 2015″

COMMENTS: Interesting description. It’s always interesting to hear a good, compelling discussion involving the ideas and concepts developed by Dr. Karl Marx. But action is the antidote to despair. As usual, action is not discussed. This interview above the fray with theory…but shying away from speaking plainly about prescription. In other words, we get vivid descriptions about the problems in society. But we don’t get meaningful prescriptions about what to do about those problems. Thus, reality is avoided… One could argue not every interview needs to offer a prescription, or that this interview was more about philosophy than politics. One could argue that not every Against the Grain broadcast needs to meaningfully address what people, what the listeners with moral concern, can do about the social ills in question. But ATG never meaningfully addresses it…

COMMENTS: As of Monday, 29 AUG 2022 (or perhaps earlier), this radio archive has been occulted from the public. In other words, the free flow of information has been blocked or prevented and historical memory and the ability of the community to make sense of the world around us has been diminished.

Comprehensive coverage of the day’s news with a focus on war and peace; social, environmental and economic justice.
- Donald Trump takes the 5th in New York probe of his business practices

- Inflation Reduction Act moves toward final House vote on Friday

COMMENTS: Usually, honest on basic social justice issues, but KPFA newscast bosses tend to gaslight listeners on COVID-19 (never mention VAERS data, VAERS deaths, assaults on informed consent, assaults on parental consent, no mention of litigation in India against the World Health Organization, etc.) and also gaslight listeners regarding establishment Democrat Party politics (i.e., usually engaging in Democrat Party apologia and perception management to keep people within the Democrat Party imaginary and away from the third-party politics imaginary, in the sociology sense of the term, ‘imaginary’). I.e., in other words, ‘it’s all good, just don’t question 9/11, COVID-19, nor establishment electoral politics.’ Having said all that, this is still a better nightly newscast than most. I’m hard-pressed to think of a better one, especially since the demise of Free Speech Radio News (FSRN), especially not locally. But that doesn’t excuse the KPFA news bosses’ intellectual dishonesty, lying by omission, and other deficiencies of journalistic integrity. WION is pretty good on global news; but there, too, one can detect the liberal bias, which Dr. Noam Chomsky has warned about since at least the 1990s.

In other words, the free flow of information has been blocked or prevented and historical memory and the ability of the community to make sense of the world around us has been diminished.

“The fight for water | DW documentary” by DW documentary [via YouTube], , 10 AUG 2022.
NOTES: [L4] ‘Imagine our water running out.’ … ‘Imagine our wells drying up.’ … ‘ “Water is disappearing everywhere.” … (c. 1:52) ‘It’s also very dry now, compared to what it usually is. I mean; after a rainy spring, it’s so green around here you wouldn’t believe it. It looks like Ireland. But not this year. It’s semi-desert. After years of drought, the land just behind the coast around Avila Beach [in California] is now eerily barren. We will be out of water, as will most places in California. And it’s gonna get worse. I would just say: pray for rain.’ (c. 2:28) … ‘Mendocino County on the northern California coast has been relying on trucked in water since January 2022. And the real problem happened July 18th when Fort Bragg shut off the tap.’ (c. 4:00) … Restaurants and business have had to close bathrooms to customers due to a lack of water. … (c. 4:21)
“Prayers for Rain (2010 Remaster)” by The Cure (1989, 2010)
“Clip – Neil Oliver Wakes Up With Dr Tess Lawrie” by Neil Oliver, 10 AUG 2022.
Quotation from video description: pending
NOTES: This is a clip from an extended interview.
COMMENTS: Real talk, honest and critical discussion on the police state response to the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak (aka COVID-19). Neil Oliver is one of the most honest voices out there, next to Dr. Gary Null, when it comes to speaking honestly about all things all things COVID-19.
[ 1 ] Truth be told, as corrupt as DN! has become, it’s better than nothing. I still listen to DN!, but when I do so I know they’re lying to me half the time, like Lewis Lapham said about reading The New York Times. The problem with liberals (i.e., pro-capitalists or non-anti-capitalists) at Pacifica Radio is that they believe everything they read in the NYT. Or they want to believe. And, you know they do, because they quote it uncritically, amplify establishment narratives on the air. Most Pacifica Radio liberals interview their pundits, along with others from equally deceptive state rags, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal. But all we, listeners, get are softball questions and shallow politics. The job of the journalist is to challenge the power structures and institutions of society. Instead of finding the sound experts, who make sense, Pacifica Radio’s liberal pundits confuse us, listeners, with conflicting conclusions, that don’t conclude. One day, Mitch Jeserich seems to understand how the monetary system works, when he’s on air with Prof. Richard Wolff. Later, when Mr. Jeserich is on air with a non-economist from The Wall Street Journal, we’re backsliding, speaking as if we’re still on a gold standard, or if money is a finite resource, which the U.S. must borrow from other nations. It’s bizarre. From Letters and Politics to UpFront to Democracy Now!, there appears to be a willful ignorance, a determination to forget all past lessons, to force KPFA and Pacifica Radio listeners, who are seeking truth and socioeconomic justice and legal justice and political justice toward the goal of peace on Earth, to perpetually reinvent the wheel, to perpetually have to re-establish basic truths, such as the fundamental contradictions of capitalism, such as the fact that capitalism and democracy are incompatible. The goal of liberals is to stifle all ideas, information, and perspectives of everyone to the left of them, which is to say to stifle anti-capitalist tactics and strategies for a non-capitalist economy, or an economy without corporations, which are not democratically operated by the workers. | Instead of finding the sound experts, who make sense, Pacifica Radio’s liberal pundits confuse us with conflicting conclusions from day to day, even hour to hour. There is no cohesion, no collaboration. One hour, Dr. Gary Null airs respected world-class doctors dissenting before Congress on the state-corporate COVID-19 policies. And the next hour, Leonard Lopate will gaslight everyone by uncritically repeating and amplifying the state-corporate COVID-19 policies and narratives, as if there is nothing wrong. | Why is it that Mr. Lopate, Mr. Jeserich, Mr. Edwards-Tiekert, et al are allowed to gaslight everyone, to distort reality, for example, to operate under the false presupposition that the PCR test is a valid diagnostic test, when its inventor Dr. Kary Mullis said it is not, when the PCR test was never intended to be a diagnostic test, and when the PCR test is used as a diagnostic test, results are prone to error. This error rate increases as the magnification cycle threshold is increased. None of this is explained to the listeners, who are kept in the dark by the establishment narrative-pushers. For some reason, establishment ideologues have taken power of editorial news boss positions, which seems to force other, more honest, Pacifica Radio broadcasters to bite their tongue about the COVID-19 issue. It’s a pity. (A few notable exceptions, Pacifica Radio programs, which dare to be honest about COVID-19, are The Gary Null Show (WBAI), Mindfield (WBAI), Covid, Race & Democracy.)
[ 2 ] Jeez, this show’s still going? They ain’t even got David Gans no more. He’s a made man in KPFA terms, a loyal partisan. I remember Mr. Gans writing partisan propaganda in favor of the reformist Democrat faction at KPFA, with money, and their patronage system, against all grassroots people trying to participate on the free speech airwaves. But when other shows, which serve black and brown people or working class people, low income people, not just boozhie liberals, they get cut quick, even banned, like JR Valrey, on bogus charges. Pa’ que veas, lo que de ‘veras les importa. Ellos nunca van a quitar este programa. Ellos pueden poner esto en un canal en la pagina de internet. Alli pueden poner cien canales de musica, si quieren. Prefieren que los escuchadores se la pásen todos atarantados, que bien informados. Si tuviéran buenos programas, no fuera tan gacho. Pero despues de desperdiciar todo el dia, luego salen con esta madre. No mámes. …
