Intercepted by The Mother Of All Bombs

The Mother Of All Bombs Killed Women and Children and Radicalized Untold Numbers To Join Isis.

Investigative Journalist Jeremy Scahill, author of Dirty Wars and Black Water, has a new Podcast totally worth subscribing to. The name of the podcast is Intercepted.

This week, Jeremy dedicated the whole hour to the Syria crisis. It starts out with Brian Williams drooling over America’s “beautiful weapons.” These media shills are not asking for evidence for why the  bombing of Syria is necessary. Brian Williams is proof positive of that missed opportunity.

Jeremy interviewed Dennis Kucinich. Dennis explained his trip to Syria with Tulsi Gabbart, congresswoman from Hawaii, and an earlier visit Dennis made to Syria to speak with Bashar al-Assad. Presently, Tulsi is the only congressperson to ask for research into the reasons to bomb Syria. Suddenly, the Corporate Democrats are siding with Trump after vilifying him for weeks leading up to the Tomahawk strike. Now these same democrats have dropped the “Russia Russia Russia” neo- McCarthy narrative.

Jeremy also interviewed a Syrian man who lived with his family in Canada prior to the 911 attacks. After 911, he was kidnapped and detained at a US airport, taken back to Syria, where he was tortured by Assad’s Agents.

Asked if there should be a regime change in Syria, his answer was double edged: he both opposes Assad, and the US Intervention. 

Now that Trump is emboldened by his popular Tomahawk cruise missile attack, he dropped the so-called “Mother Of All Bombs” on what the Trump administration wants you all to believe is an Isis target in Afghanistan. This just happened today. 

As usual, the media elites are frothing at the mouth. Has the world gone mad?

Josh Fox, anti-fracking activist and filmmaker, said this bomb is in reality a carpet bomb, “designed to inflict massive casualties.”

Here is Josh and Tim Black discussing this crime against humanity, as well as Josh’s new film, on the Tim Black At Night Show:

The Tim Black Show

Broken Carpenter and Tim Black at DNC in Philly.

I love Independent Media. I outlined all the shows I love on another blog post. I no longer watch CNN, MSNBC or Fox News. However, even Fox covered Bernie Sanders more in the primary than CNN or MSNBC combined. We cancelled our cable after the Democratic Convention. I also left the Democratic Party at that time.

Last night’s Freedom Friday Show, created by Tim Black of Tim Black TV dot com, was one I had the opportunity to watch. I texted my friend Lori to watch, too. I will post the show at the end of this post.

Naturally, the topic throughout the night was Syria, and people’s various perspectives on the situation. Each person offered a different take, and there were many callers last night. 

Tim offers a gift to his supporters and listeners with all his shows, but Freedom Friday in particular is a sounding board for people who could easily fall into a deep depression over the state of the world, if not for this venue for expression. The only thing Tim requires is: No Hate Speech. If a caller resorts to this, Tim immediately cuts them off.

Tim delivers short videos on the news of the day each day. On Monday nights, Tim and HA Goodman present “No Sell Outs.” Tuesday and Thursday nights, Tim interviews progressives who make a difference in the American political sphere. Freedom Friday is a culmination of everything he presented throughout that week. 

Tim exudes an aura of goodwill and honesty. Sometimes what he has to say is painful, but he is a truth teller, as he often says about his approach to politics, and life itself. 

Here is a repeat of last night’s show:
