LUMPENPROLETARIAT—[Thursday, 11 FEB 2021] Yesterday, on Pacifica Radio, we heard coverage of the ongoing Second Impeachment Trial of Donald J. Trump. To be an informed citizen, or resident, or guest, of any nation requires that we pay attention to what’s going on in the world around us, outside our front door, beyond our own proclivities. Modern life in America was alienating before COVID-19. Post-lockdown, the statistics have been even more bleak.
“Carl Nielsen: Little Suite for Strings, Opus 1“ by Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, 12 AUG 2013.
With regard to the proto-fascist siege, which surprised state capitols across the divided United States on January 6th, including most saliently at the nation’s capitol in D.C., it seems it was an inside job, as corroborated by Empire Files (cf. link 1 and link 2). Of course, they have a whole team, dedicated to investigate journalism and researching this question. For the individual, or even family or group of neighbors or friends, trying to stay informed, individually or grouped, can still be a daunting task. It is a lot to take in all at once, assembling a comprehensive narrative of the events of January 6th. Yet, if we had a team, like a reader’s digest for Pacifica Radio and Friends, as it were, the case for impeachment would be so much stronger. We are all witnesses. Imagine if we could hear Jeremy Scahill testify, and Chris Hedges, and Noam Chomsky, and the Southern Poverty Law Center, and Dr. James McIntosh, representing more than 70,000 psychologists/psychiatrists, who tried to warn us that Mr. Trump may be a reactive narcissist. That is the type, which can never admit to being wrong, nor to admit defeat. Dr. McIntosh, on Pacifica Radio on the east coast, cited Hitler as an extreme example; and we know that story.
At the individual level, few have the stomach for engaging with the issues of the day. Most turn away, turn it off, or change the station or channel. Thank goodness some of us do. If not for independent media, all we would have is toxic, corporate gaslighting narratives. This is how we end up with the types of history books, which people like Howard Zinn and James Loewen later have to rectify. We must realize, as working class people, that we must tell our own narrative, from our own perspective. We must not let our oppressors dictate to us what our reality is. We know the incitement didn’t begin on January 6th, or even months earlier, as Senator Raskin argued. And we also know Mr. Trump met at Mar-a-Lago with GOP bosses only a couple of weeks ago to discuss next steps with Mr. Trump once again at the helm of the Republican Party. The Democrat Party’s line of argumentation, starting with the decision to only submit a single article of impeachment, narrowed the focus of the case, which also limited the evidence presented, and even rest their case early, with some five hours to spare. If nothing else, they should have taken public comment. They made it easy for the Republican side tomorrow.
The ills of society are not for kids to worry about. That’s for grown-ups. But we can understand the teachers, who have called in to Pacifica Radio to discuss their usage of impeachment coverage in their classrooms. And we applaud them. We heard various people on Pacifica Radio, expert guests being interviewed, confess how traumatizing it was to watch all of the “ghastly” video footage. One woman, “Christina”, said it was difficult for her to even bear listening to the audio on Pacifica Radio. Your author has made a deliberate effort to avoid obsessing over those video images. Those of us old enough to remember 9/11 know how unhealthy excessive consumption of violent propaganda and snuff news can be on the psyche. The more important information can be gleaned from radio, some independent journalism videos, and readings with much more fullness and detail than watching traumatizing violence on repeat. But to each his own.
So, we have done that. We have read what we can, given working class time constraints. And that effort, combined with Pacifica Radio and independent media, has given us enough notes, references, and information, such that we can confidently corroborate the fact that the events of January 6th were an inside job, a number of cops opened doors, took selfies with Trump loyalists, have racist tattoos or insignia, and so on.
On Tuesday, the Senate mainly debated the constitutionality of proceeding with impeachment. This was a frivolous, if not spurious, legal argument allowed by the Democrat Party, which has kowtowed to the Republican Party for too long.
Yesterday, the Democrat Party began laying out their case of incitement against Mr. Trump. Since we have a polarizing two-party system, with only two significant political parties, which are ever considered in our American public discourse, then divisiveness is guaranteed.
Logistically-speaking, according to Mitch Jeserich (Pacifica Radio), each political party gets 16 hours to make their case. Democrats finished presenting their case, get this, with hours to spare! They could have presented more evidence. They could have called witnesses. Why didn’t they subpoena Mr. Trump? For many of us, this was a farce. It was like the Democrat Party was trying to lose.
Today, we heard news reports on Pacifica Radio that statistics of COVID-19 are trending downward for the first time. The trend was seen over the previous week or so. Unfortunately, the rise of less predictable coronavirus variants is confounding the hopeful statistics. Independent media, including Democracy Now!, have done a good job of encouraging a scientific, evidence-based approach to COVID-19 responses, including encouraging social distancing and the use of face coverings. On the right-wing of the political spectrum, we are hearing arguments about profligate black and brown people, who only want to sit at home and collect unemployment. On the center of the political spectrum, i.e., centrists, U.S. ‘liberals‘, we are hearing paternalistic pap, symbolized by Mr. Biden’s winning smile. Don’t worry, he smiles. Go back to sleep. We got this. There is nothing to see here. Keep moving.
What we find most suspicious, as people, who have six-pack abs, little-to-no bodyfat and muscular physiques, is the glaring lack of advocacy for fitness and nutrition. In the natural bodybuilding community, we respect former pro-bodybuilder Ben Pakulski because of his intellectual approach to bodybuilding. Pakulski is not afraid to ask questions. He is now retired and, thus, decided to downsize his physique. But he is still a world class bodybuilder.
Last year, Pakulski introduced his audience to Dr. Benjamin Bikman, who wrote the excellent book, Why We Get Sick. We recommend everybody read that book because Dr. Bikman summarizes for us the latest scientific literature, which corroborates with science, what bodybuilders have long known—how to get in shape. That is to say, body recomposition, or build muscle and burn fat. Fitness is important for self-defense against all viruses, including coronavirus because the immune system is the foundation of one’s health. And the immune system begins in the gut. We’re not saying nutrition and fitness will kill the coronavirus. But we are saying that the most vulnerable to the coronavirus are the same people, who suffer from the pre-existing conditions and comorbidities, which contribute to our American pandemic of ill health, much of which stems from issues related to insulin resistance and insulin sensitivity. That’s where Dr. Bikman comes in.

Why don’t you tell us? It seems insidious of you to point that out, as if it’s a smear, that he spoke on FOX. Glenn Greenwald also speaks on FOX. We will speak on any TV show, if it means getting our message out. We already know any interview request has the intention of using the interview subject in service of the agenda of the interviewer. The only question has to do with where those agendas align or diverge. But, since when is finding common ground or building bridges a mark of shame. Pacifica broadcasters, such as BET lambast their political opponents, but never give them an opportunity to speak, to have free speech. Why speculate? Why not just invite the opponents on air?

But, hopefully, we can keep Pacifica Radio turned on for the rest of the day because this is historic. And Pacifica Radio is home for many of us, especially those of us who are Pacifica babies . We grew up in the Bay Area with KPFA, since childhood. We remember when it used to be “free speech KPFA”. We still have the car bumper stickers to prove it. We never thought we’d see the day when even Larry Bensky would be longed for, the liberal leftists complained about during his time. But, those of us, who remember Larry Bensky covering the U.S. Congress cannot deny how far KPFA and Pacifica Radio’s quality has fallen. Pacifica Radio archives are a historic national treasure. Today’s Pacifica Radio archives reflect the toxic influence of liberals, often funded by big-“D” Democrat money, which blocks all perspectives to the left of them. The few good shows on Pacifica exist in spite of those bourgeois liberals, not because of them. […] 1218, he said teachers get fired for espousing totalitarianism.

She’s an ally of BET, Jeserich, et al. She answered my call, after putting me on hold for 1 hour 45 minutes plus, just now. She came on the line and, no hello, no nothing, just a narcissistic abuser vibe, and said, “This is the line to call guests. We have to hang up now.” I immediately and swiftly said, “Wait! Wait! I’m here. I’ve been waiting almost two hours. Please don’t hang up on me.” 1329, still no guest on air, btw. […] 1343, the Brandenburg Case, we must defend even speech we don’t like.

We don’t think he is referring to the economic school of thought, though. Maybe he is; but we doubt it. At any rate, Sonali’s follow up question was disappointing. She redirected her flock to question the institution of “the media”. One institution she and her ilk, Mitch Jeserich, Brian Edwards-Tiekert, Aileen Alfandary, Amy Goodman, et al, will never question. It’s a sad fact, which keeps KPFA and Pacifica Radio listeners from contemplating or questioning the dangers and polarizing nature of two-party systems, which in our case in the USA, as Ralph Nader has long emphasized, is a two-party dictatorship. If you can’t see that, it may be because everyone, even liberals at Pacifica Radio, frame everything within a worldview, which is incapable of imagining anything other than undying (and too often uncritical) allegiance to the Democrat Party.
