The Truth About the U.S. / Saudi Genocide in Yemen – Scott Horton and Keith Knight

The Truth About the U.S. / Saudi Genocide in Yemen – Scott Horton and Keith Knight

Mankind is a mixture of good and evil, of cooperative and criminal tendencies. In my view, the anarchist society is one which maximizes the tendencies for the good and the cooperative, while it minimizes both the opportunity and the moral legitimacy of the evil and the criminal. If the anarchist view is correct, and the State is indeed the great legalized and socially legitimated channel for all manner of antisocial crime — theft , oppression, mass murder — on a massive scale, then surely the abolition of such an engine of crime can do nothing but favor the good in man and discourage the bad….The anarchist view holds that, given the “nature of man,” given the degree of goodness or badness at any point of time, anarchism will maximize the opportunities for good and minimize the channels for the bad.

Sexy Abby Martin vs American Empire

Sexy Abby Martin vs American Empire

What is this banging hot white chick doing in the Gaza Strip or Venezuela?

In this offensive political comedy episode, we follow the sexy journalist Abby Martin, to dive into how the Secret CIA Empire actually works.  From Coups in Venezuela and Ukraine, to propaganda of the empire though the map.

Year Zero 92: Soleimani Was An Imminent Threat, But Not To American Lives

Year Zero 92: Soleimani Was An Imminent Threat, But Not To American Lives

The Trump administration has backed off of the narrative that Soleimani was in Baghdad to plot attacks on four American embassies, but they haven’t addressed the imminent threat he truly posed. While it’s true the Iranian general can’t be credibly linked to the deaths of Americans or a future plot; he is absolutely linked to plotting peace in Yemen without US support, threatening the world empire’s dominance in the region.

Why is Ukraine important? And is Iran really a threat?

Tommy is joined by a friend of his, Greg Price to discuss how average Americans view government, politics, culture, and media. Greg is an independent Ohio voter, a truck driver, a father, and grandfather.

Donald Trump wants to Leave Syria but Bomb Yemen?

Donald Trump wants to Leave Syria but Bomb Yemen?

Trump has called for some US troops to withdraw from northeastern Syria.  However this move has Democrats screaming about the local Kurds being abandoned who were our ally, that we were protecting.

However they are criticizing him for the wrong reasons.  The real hypocrisy is that Donald Trump wants to continue US aid to Saudi Arabia to bomb children in Yemen and withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal.  In this episode, we break down the common thread between all these Middle Eastern conflicts.

Year Zero: Policing the World to Safety

Year Zero: Policing the World to Safety

  1. In Episode 44 Tommy addresses a common position in modern America. Should Team America police the world? And if they do what is the result?

“I believe in police the world… i do.” ~ Dana Perino

For decades the US has adhered to this policy of policing the world. In doing so they have convinced their citizens that they reign with benevolent authority over other sovereign nations, and that the sins of these nations are greater than the casualties that will occur due to intervention.

10 of the 15 most dangerous countries in the world have fallen victim to the policy of American benevolence. More chilling still is that every nation listed in the top 7 have undoubtedly been directly related to the policies of policing the world since 9/11/2001.

I’m not suggesting that Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, South Sudan, Iraq, and Yemen are peaceful utopian tourist destinations if not for the US. I am simply pointing out that organizing coups, bombing nations, inflicting crippling blockades, and destabilizing regions do not ever make a nation safer. In fact, as the military has grown – perpetually intervening in other countries – life in America has also become less safe, climbing to the 43rd most dangerous nation in the world.
