The Random Hubiak joined us in studio. He stopped by to discuss his show this Easter Sunday at World Cafe Live.
We talked a little about his music, and he played a few songs as well. Excellent songwriter and piano player!
Tune in, and spread the word!
This was our Wednesday edition of Gashouse Live, which means tons of great music! Fox Bay, the current Band vs Band champion, faced south Jersey's The Narratus.
Both bands will be in regular rotation, because they are just that good, but which one will be back for another round of Band vs Band.
Tune in weekdays 6pm ET on www.gashouseradio.com/chat
Not usually a show about sports, tonight we talked a little bit about Pete Rose. With the new MLB commissioner coming in, another request t lift his band from the league has been issued. Should Pete Rose be allowed back into baseball?
Technology news saw some interesting advancements, including a product that blows away the iWatch. Check it out here:
The alien portion of the Scotch hour touched a little bit on our exploration of Mars, but what's really interesting is the next project using the Large Hadron Collider. Is it the end of the world?
Tonight's episode will focus on our Band vs Band segment, because it's a great one.
The DickVanDykes are out of Olney, MD. They're a pretty new band with a great sound. They've put together a nice little run here on Band v sBand and on this episode they try to keep that run alive. Stellarscope is a great band out of Philadelphia. While they've been in rotation for some time, they have a brand new album to add to the mix. Who's going to move on in Band vs Band after this epic battle?! Check it out, and visit these sites while you listen:
After WWII, the US and Soviet Union were the only 2 countries with any power and money left. So naturally we started to turn on each other. Capitalism vs Communism became the main narrative of the world.
Some people believe that part of the reason we dropped the 2 nukes on Japan was obviously to end the war, but also to show the Soviet Union just what kind of power we held.
So America looked to make sure we created relationships all over the world in order to sell all of our goods to everyone [Capitalism]. The Soviet Union was hell bent on spreading Communism to countries around them in fear of Germany building up and invading once again (remember they still had the lunatic Stalin in charge who was in my opinion way worse than Hitler).
This is why we got involved in the Koren War and Vietnam as well, which we'll get into later. Basically it was to stop the spread of Communism.
Now with this history audit, we always "follow the money". So what was going on in this time period?
The Red Scare
Whether it was missile systems, military, technology, the space program, you name it, it became a pissing contest between the US and the Soviets. At the same time we were sending money to any country who may be influenced by Communism (like Greece Turkey, etc). All the while, the anti-communism propaganda machine began.
This also led to a bunch of government agencies being created, putting people into power that were not democratically elected, immune from government oversight, and also not adhering to our Constitution. The National Security Council, The Central Intelligence Agency, Atomic Energy Commission.
Start scaring the public with propaganda so that they will be in support of these unconstitutional moves, in order to keep us safe. Sounds very familiar to today. (Hide under your desk in case of a nuclear attack)! Government pushed Hollywood to make anti-communist movies designed to scare the public. CIA funded newspapers, magazines, TV shows, concerts, artists.
Operation MOCKINGBIRD — The CIA begins recruiting American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators of propaganda. The effort is headed by Frank Wisner, Allan Dulles, Richard Helms and Philip Graham. Graham is publisher of The Washington Post, which becomes a major CIA player. Eventually, the CIA’s media assets will include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International, Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service and more. By the CIA’s own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists will become CIA assets.
In 1947, Truman introduced the "Loyalty Review System". Government workers had to prove their loyalty if questioned about being a communist. How do you do that? By ratting out someone who you suspect might be a communist. How crazy is that? Its like a combination of the Patriot act and the Salem With Trials.
Because Communism was looked at as "atheist", in 1954 Congress added "under God" to our pledge of allegiance. Another example of ignoring our founding fathers (separate religion and government). Also plans to increase social security, healthcare and minimum wage were all squashed because lobbyists (mainly the AMA) argued that they were socialist and therefore communist.
Government spending on education and science increased, mainly to try and one up the communists. Roads and infastructure blew up, mainly as escape routes in case of nuclear attack.
This began the arms race as well, a military build up. Again, our tax money was now being poured into the military industrial complex. Why? Because we had to fight this enemy that our TV and newspapers were telling us to be afraid of every second of every day. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have been careful with the Communists, but I never think it's ok to abandon our constitution and our democratic system out of fear and bullshit propaganda.
So our government was spending like crazy, and who was getting that money? Most of our deficit of today was built from our defense spending over the Cold War period. Bankers. Lending money to our government on interest. The Federal Reserve. The Rockefeller,s The Herrimans, The Rothschilds, JP Morfgan
Stalin took his instructions from Averell Harriman who spent 1944 & 1945 at Stalin's Kremlin headquarters. (This Illuminati fixer had spent the pre-war years building up Hitler's war machine.) Stalin welcomed the external enemy to keep his own people in line. - See more at: http://www.henrymakow.com/the_cold_war_--_4_trillion_ill.html#sthash.p9uCtXm5.dpuf
Within 3 years of the atomic bombs, the soviets seemed to have nuclear technology of their own. This was due to spies. This Cold War was all about intelligence, and covert operations.
Operation MK-ULTRA — Inspired by North Korea’s brainwashing program, the CIA begins experiments on mind control. The most notorious part of this project involves giving LSD and other drugs to American subjects without their knowledge or against their will, causing several to commit suicide. However, the operation involves far more than this. Funded in part by the Rockefeller and Ford foundations, research includes propaganda, brainwashing, public relations, advertising, hypnosis, and other forms of suggestion.
Italy 1948 — The CIA corrupts democratic elections in Italy, where Italian communists threaten to win the elections. The CIA buys votes, broadcasts propaganda, threatens and beats up opposition leaders, and infiltrates and disrupts their organizations. It works -- the communists are defeated.
Britain and it's colonies had no oil of it's own. They struck a long term, pretty shady deal with Iran so that all of Iran's oil was going to the British.
After the war, nationalist leaders in Iran became influential by seeking a reduction in long-term foreign interventions in their country—especially the oil concession which was very profitable for Britain and not very profitable to Iran. The British-controlled AIOC refused to allow its books to be audited to determine whether the Iranian government was being paid what had been promised.
Iran basically takes back their oil, and then the US gets involved via the CIA. CIA overthrows the democratically elected Mohammed Mossadegh in a military coup, after he threatened to nationalize British oil. The CIA replaces him with a dictator, the Shah of Iran, whose secret police, SAVAK, is as brutal as the Gestapo. (for the sake of time I am simplifying this story a bit. I have links in the podcast description with more information on these events). This was the first successful government overthrow by the CIA.
Guatemala 1954 — CIA overthrows the democratically elected Jacob Arbenz in a military coup. Arbenz has threatened to nationalize the Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, in which CIA Director Allen Dulles also owns stock. Arbenz is replaced with a series of right-wing dictators whose bloodthirsty policies will kill over 100,000 Guatemalans in the next 40 years.
Haiti 1959 — The U.S. military helps "Papa Doc" Duvalier become dictator of Haiti. He creates his own private police force, the "Tonton Macoutes," who terrorize the population with machetes. They will kill over 100,000 during the Duvalier family reign. The U.S. does not protest their dismal human rights record.
The Bay of Pigs 1961 — The CIA sends 1,500 Cuban exiles to invade Castro’s Cuba. But "Operation Mongoose" fails, due to poor planning, security and backing. The planners had imagined that the invasion will spark a popular uprising against Castro -– which never happens. A promised American air strike also never occurs. This is the CIA’s first public setback, causing President Kennedy to fire CIA Director Allen Dulles.
The Dominican Republic and Equador in 1963 - CIA backed military coups to overthrow the gov't and put our own people in.
Indonesia and Zaire in 1965
Greece in 1967
Bolivia in 1968
Cambodia in 1972
Chile in 1973
All of these were in the name of "spreading Democracy", but really its just to make sure the US gets what it wants from these countries. So when we look at the Middle East today, you have to understand that it is this policy that continues. The corporate media continue to push the idea that we're "fighting for freedom" and we fighting terrorists when really it's this same policy of taking over countries and taking their resources. It's wrong.
Long time drummer for Billy Joel and founder of The Slim Kings, Liberty DeVitto called in to the show. The Slim Kings have a show Friday night at Connie's Ric Rac. Liberty called in and shared some of his thoughts on the music industry today, and some stories from touring the world with Billy Joel.
We also had Carolyn Marie call in to the show. Carolyn has been extremely busy with her career. She has an EP on the way, and March 19th her single Take Back the Power will be released. Tune in and find out why this single is getting so much buzz.
Co-host: Carly and Jon the Intern.
Carly is back! The Scotch Hour tradition continues on Tuesday nights. This time we were joined by Mike from the band Stealing Fame. Mike played a few acoustic songs and filled us in on the band.
Plus, we had our usual Tuesday night alien discussion, and a few other topics crept in there. This was also another attempt at our live Youtube feed, which is getting better and better!
In an effort to win independence, Zionists now waged a guerrilla war against the British. The main underground Jewish militia, the Haganah, formed an alliance called the Jewish Resistance Movement with the Etzel and Stern Gang to fight the British. In June 1946, following instances of Jewish sabotage, the British launched Operation Agatha, arresting 2700 Jews, including the leadership of the Jewish Agency, whose headquarters were raided.Zionist officials were quite blunt in stating that they didn’t want all the refugees from Hitler’s Holocaust. They didn’t want the burden of absorbing millions of impoverished sick refugees who had no ideological passion for Palestine. The Agency only wanted young, healthy Jews who could come over and work and fight and build the state. As Israeli historian Tom Segev writes,Urban life was, in their [Zionist leaders] eyes, a symptom of social and moral degeneration; returning to the land would give birth to the ‘new man’ they hoped to create in Palestine. In parceling out the immigration certificates, they therefore gave preference to those who could play a role in their program for building the country. They preferred healthy young Zionists.The German Immigrants Association in Palestine actually complained in 1934 that the Zionist organizations in Berlin weren’t being selective enough about who they were sending. Its letter of complaint stated in part, ‘The human material coming from Germany is getting worse and worse." It even returned some of the refugees to Germany who they felt would be too much of a burden.The Rescue Committee of the Jewish Agency wrote a private memorandum in 1943 about the prospects for their work. When this was written, it still could have been possible to save millions of Jews from Hitler’s "Final Solution." But they didn’t even try.Whom to save: Should we help everyone in need, without regard to the quality of the people? Should we not give this activity a Zionist-national character and try foremost to save those who can be of use to the Land of Israel and to Jewry? I understand that it seems cruel to put the question in this form, but unfortunately we must state that if we are able to save only 10,000 people from among 50,000 who can contribute to build the country…as against saving a million Jews who will be a burden, or at best an apathetic element, we must restrain ourselves and save the 10,000 that can be saved from among the 50,000–despite the accusations and pleas of a million."Was this position unethical? To paraphrase Jabotinsky, this was their ethic–there was no other ethic. To the Zionists, the needs of the Jewish State came first, second, and last.
The importance of the United States to this movement was recognized from early on. One of the founders of political Zionism, Max Nordau, wrote a few years after the Basle conference, "Zionism's only hope is the Jews of America."
Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, has spoken with blunt exasperation about the Jewish-Israeli hold on the United States: “I've never seen a President -- I don't care who he is -- stand up to them [the Israelis]. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn't writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don't have any idea what goes on.”Today the danger has never been greater. Israel and Jewish organizations are prodding the United States into new wars against Israel'senemies.To sum up: Jews wield immense power and influence in the United States. The “Jewish lobby” is a decisive factor in US support for Israel. Jewish-Zionist interests are not identical to American interests. In fact, they often conflict.As long as the “very powerful” Jewish lobby remains entrenched, there will be no end to the Jewish-Zionist domination of the US political system and the American media, the Zionist oppression of Palestinians, the Israeli threat to peace, and the bloody conflict between Jews and non-Jews in the Middle East.
