BEHIND THE SCENES
Next week I will be taking a more active part in the broadcast of 'Something's Happening!' from home to the station where Buzz will be stationed to oversee the radio signal.  I was hoping for a 50 million dollar check from the government's recent spending spree but somehow it didn't come through, so I am back to work, although stationed at home. It will take some readjustment and relearning (and re-equipping) to pull it off but we expect success - and we will be embarking on a profoundly important fund drive sometime soon.

12-12:30 David Quammen: ‘Shaking the Viral Tree’
By Maria April 21, 2020
An Interview by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee

 In his 2012 book Spillover, ‘Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic’
the science writer David Quammen predicted another Corona Virus outbreak. At the end of March 2020 the editor of Emergence Magazine, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee talked with Quammen who was sheltering in place in his Bozeman, Montana, home.

Their conversation explored the ways in which viruses are embedded in the same systems of ecology and evolutionary biology that we humans are. As we disrupt wild ecosystems and shake these viruses free, and experience the consequences, COVID-19 offers an opportunity to re-imagine our relationship with the natural world.

Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee is a filmmaker, musician and executive editor of Emergence Magazine. David Quammen is an award winning science writer, explorer and author of four books of fiction and eight of non-fiction, including ‘Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic;’ and ‘The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life.’

Kent Heckenlively is an attorney with a jurist doctoral degree, a science teacher and a founding contributing editor of Age of Autism, a daily web newsletter about the autism epidemic that investigates autism as an environmentally induced and treatable illness. In the past he has worked for US Senator Pete Wilson from California and the US Attorney’s Office in San Francisco. His daughter Jacqueline has severe autism due to a vaccine injury. Kent is the co-author with Dr. Judy Mikovits of the recent book “Plague of Corruption: Restoring Faith in the Promise of Science” — which recounts Dr. Mikovits’ career over the past four decades working with the cutting edge of viral research both within and outside of government.  Earlier Kent authored “Inoculated: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism,” which tells the story of how vaccines have become a 30 year disaster since the passage of Ronald Reagan’s 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act that gave vaccine makers immunity from vaccine injuries.

Dr. Judy Mikovits has been research scientists for almost four decades specializing in immunology and virology, drug development and epigenetics.  Her dedication saw her rise to become the director of the National Cancer Institute’s laboratory for Antiviral Drug Mechanisms. Later she went into private industry to direct the cancer biology program at EpiGenX Pharmaceuticals in California and was drawn to investigate the molecular causation of autism, chronic fatigue syndrome and immunological inflammation in disease. She holds a BA from the University of Virginia and received her doctorate in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University.  Judy’s and Kent’s website is plaguethebook.com

1:30-2:30 The Gary Null Show – The Empty Celebration of Earth Day – 04.22.20
Gary Null Ph.D

Fifty years ago I and other conservationists and public health advocates were thrilled with the idea of an annual Earth Day celebration to honor our planet. At that time, I had more requests from television and radio to speak about health, nutrition and the early natural food movement. I had never received before any requests to speak about the environment, although I was an organic farmer and taught organic and sustainable agricultural methods at my Fertile Earth Farm outside of New Paltz in the Hudson Valley.

Despite the success of the early Earth Day events, there seemed to be very little national interest in deeper environmental issues. Even in those days, I largely spoke to deaf ears. Unlike the worldwide consciousness growing around civil and women’s rights, activism advocating for stewardship of the Earth, its resources and wildlife was still in its infancy. I was hoping these various efforts might join together. That included going vegetarian, live through the principle of being in harmony with the natural world and conscientiously simplifying our lives. Rather than focus on a future to purchase and hoard more stuff, explore what other cultures do to connect with our human faculties that foster compassion, kindness, and a shared commons. I believed we should be oracles of peace rather than ambassadors of political hegemony, oppression and power.

Yet how foolish, naive and delusional I was! Now jumping forward fifty years, where does humanity linger today?  Last year was the year of Greta Thunberg, a teenager who raised hell, got into the faces of the world’s leaders and demanded environmental priority over profits. Despite her sincerity and her activism’s success in mobilizing the global youth, it turned out to be a rather futile gesture.  We are still faced with powerful laissez faire opportunists behind Green capitalism exemplified by the elite such as Al Gore. With very few exceptions, I no longer believe the world governments, and certainly not private industry nor the mainstream media, will effectively cause anything to change to the degree necessary to reach a realistic level of ecological sustainability…

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, APRIL 29

12-2 Dave Emory, 'For the Record #1111 and FTR #1112 Update on the Alleged “Suicide” of Iris Chang and the Destabilization of China and “BioWarfare-Psy-Op” Against China?'

This description encompasses material for two programs. Following up on FTR #‘s 1107 and 1108, we highlight a San Francisco Chronicle article about the alleged suicide of Iris Chang, a suggestive, important detail was noticed by a sharp-eyed listener/reader. A detail about the physical circumstances surrounding Iris’s “suicide” suggests–strongly–that she did not pull the trigger herself. Her body was discovered by a Santa Clara County Water District Employee. Someone who had fired a .45 caliber black powder weapon into her mouth would be unlikely to have her hands crossed in her lap and with the revolver on her left leg. This sounds like it may well an arranged crime scene. “. . . . He noticed condensation on the windows, peered inside and saw Iris in the driver’s seat with her hands crossed in her lap. The revolver lay on her left leg. . . .” Someone who had fired a.45 caliber black powder weaponinto her mouth would be unlikely to have her hands crossed in her lap and with the revolver on her left leg. This sounds like it may well an arranged crime scene.

Transitioning to discussion about biological warfare, we discuss Unit 731–a Japanese chemical and biological warfare unit that committed egregious atrocities in China during World War II.  We note: ” . . . . the U.S. Government secretly absorbed Unit 731, moving most of its scientists, personnel, and documents to U.S. military research centers like Fort Dietrick in the Maryland countryside. All information about its activities, including biological warfare atrocities, and horrific experiments on fully conscious victims, was withheld by Washington from the American and Japanese public, and from the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunals. All Unit 731’s records held by the U.S. Government are still top secret. . . .”

In connection with the coronavirus, we note that U.S. scientists had synthesized a virus of that type in a laboratory by 2008–an virus that infected mice, as well as human tissues. The synthetic coronavirus was described, in part, as follows: ” . . . .  Here, we report the design, synthesis, and recovery of the largest synthetic replicating life form, a 29.7kb bat severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)-like coronavirus (Bat-SCoV), a likely progenitor to the SARS-CoV epidemic. Synthetic recombinant bat SARS-like coronavirus is infectious in cultured cells and in mice. . . .”

Altogether curious in the context of the stridently alarmist coverage of the coronavirus outbreak is the fact that Thai doctors have apparently successfully treated the virus with a drug cocktail involving some common anti-virals. “. . . . A Chinese woman infected with the new coronavirus showed a dramatic improvement after she was treated with a cocktail of anti-virals used to treat flu and HIV, Thailand’s health ministry said Sunday. The 71-year-old patient tested negative for the virus 48 hours after Thai doctors administered the combination, doctor Kriengsak Attipornwanich said during the ministry’s daily press briefing. ‘The lab result of positive on the coronavirus turned negative in 48 hours,’ Kriengsak said. . . . The doctors combined the anti-flu drug oseltamivir with lopinavir and ritonavir, anti-virals used to treat HIV, Kriengsak said, adding the ministry was awaiting research results to prove the findings. . . .”

Reported by both Agence France Presse and Reuters–two major wire services–this (apparently successful) therapeutic regime has gone unreported in U.S. media, so far.

The lifting of a moratorium on the testing of viruses such as the SARS and MERS coronaviruses was lifted at the end of December of 2017, a little more than two years before the outbreak occurred. A number of key points of inquiry in a post by Dr. Joseph Mercola should be scrutinized:

1.–As mentioned the moratorium on the testing of this virus was lifted a little less than two years after the outbreak. ” . . . . For starters, a 2014 NPR article32 was rather prophetic. It discusses the October 2014 U.S. moratorium on experiments on coronaviruses like SARS and MERS, as well as influenza virus, that might make the viruses more pathogenic and/or easy to spread among humans. The ban came on the heels of ‘high-profile lab mishaps’ at the CDC and ‘extremely controversial flu experiments’ in which the bird flu virus was engineered to become more lethal and contagious between ferrets. The goal was to see if it could mutate and become more lethal and contagious between humans, causing future pandemics. . . . ”
2.–Note that as the ban was lifted, it was known that a virus of the type now infecting China had been developed in a U.S. lab. This appears to be the same virus mentioned in the 2008 post mentioned above. That link had been temporarily broken, as mentioned in FTR #1112. It has since been restored. ” . . . . The federal moratorium on lethal virus experiments in the U.S. was lifted at the end of December 2017,38 even though researchers announced in 2015 they had created a lab-created hybrid coronavirus similar to that of SARS that was capable of infecting both human airway cells and mice. . . .”
3.–China had opened a level 4 laboratory to study the world’s most dangerous pathogens in January of 2018 (one month after the U.S. resumed testing of lethal viruses.) ” . . . . In January 2018, China’s first maximum security virology laboratory (biosecurity level 4) designed for the study of the world’s most dangerous pathogens opened its doors — in Wuhan.41,42 . . . .”
4.–A couple of months before the outbreak in China, there was a (frankly suspicious) exercise in New York that was not only a harbinger of what was about to happen but may have been used to journalistically frame coverage of the Wuhan virus. The significance of this, in our opinion, is the “psychological warfare” component–the utter hysteria gripping the world (and driving down markets) may be driven, in part, by the suggestion placed in people’s minds by this exercise. Given that roughly nine hundred Chinese have succumbed to the coronavirus and almost ten times that number have died from the flu in the U.S. (a country with a population roughly one fifth the size of China’s) it would make more sense for people to be beside themselves over the flu and/or the prospects of traveling to, or receiving travelers from, the U.S. that is not the case. We also note, in this context, that the demographic of people succumbing to the coronavirus is similar to the demographic of most flu fatalities: older people with other infections and/or chronically ill patients. In other words, people with weakened immune systems. ” . . . . Equally curious is the fact that Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation sponsored a novel coronavirus pandemic preparedness exercise October 18, 2019, in New York called ‘Event 201.’46 The simulation predicted a global death toll of 65 million people within a span of 18 months.47 As reported by Forbes December 12, 2019:48 ‘The experts ran through a carefully designed, detailed simulation of a new (fictional) viral illness called CAPS or coronavirus acute pulmonary syndrome. This was modeled after previous epidemics like SARS and MERS.’ Sounds exactly like NCIP, doesn’t it? Yet the new coronavirus responsible for NCIP had not yet been identified at the time of the simulation, and the first case wasn’t reported until two months later. . . . ”
5.–As noted above, press coverage of the Chinese outbreak suggests that media outlets may well have been briefed about “Event 201.” ” . . . . Forbes also refers to the fictional pandemic as “Disease X” — the same designation used by The Telegraph in its January 24, 2020, video report, “Could This Coronavirus be Disease X?“49 which suggests that media outlets were briefed and there was coordination ahead of time with regard to use of certain keywords and catchphrases in news reports and opinion articles. . . .”
6.–Also of significance is the fact that Johns Hopkins–the co-sponsor of “Event 201,” is at the epicenter of national security related biomedical research. FOIA requests on such information are shielded: ” . . . . Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is the biggest recipient of research grants from federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and Department of Defense and has received millions of dollars in research grants from the Gates Foundation.50 In 2016, Johns Hopkins spent more than $2 billion on research projects, leading all U.S. universities in research spending for the 38th year in a row.51 If research funded by federal agencies, such as the DOD or HHS is classified as being performed ‘in the interest of national security,’ it is exempt from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.52 Research conducted under the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) is completely shielded from FOIA requests by the public.53 Additionally, agencies may deny FOIA requests and withhold information if government officials conclude that shielding it from public view ‘protects trade secrets and commercial or financial information which could harm the competitive posture or business interests of a company.’ . . .”

Next, we note that Steve Bannon–at the epicenter of the anti-China movement–is professionally aligned with an exiled Chinese billionaire and a wealthy Texas hedge fund manager positioned to make a great deal of money from a downturn in China’s markets.

Bannon is also very close to the accomplished investor billionaire Robert Mercer, of Cambridge Analytica fame. In our next program, we will discuss Mercer’s Reinaissance Technologies hedge fund and its investment position with regard to a pharmaceutical giant that may profit from the coronavirus outbreak.

Supplement to FTR #1111: Is Coronavirus A “Biological Warfare Psy-Op?”

In FTR #1111, we covered disturbing evidence that the coronavirus outbreak in China is a “biological warfare psy-op,” part of the destabilization of China. When we recorded the program, articles were coming in as the broadcast was being prepared. In our haste we neglected to include a very important section of a post by Joseph Mercola. Other key features of the post are in FTR #1111: Dr. Mercola noted that: ” . . . . As mentioned, a number of reports raise questions about the source of the 2019-nCoV [The Chinese coronavirus–D.E.]. For starters, a 2014 NPR article32 was rather prophetic. It discusses the October 2014 U.S. moratorium on experiments on coronaviruses like SARS and MERS, as well as influenza virus, that might make the viruses more pathogenic and/or easy to spread among humans. The ban came on the heels of  ‘high-profile lab mishaps’ at the CDC and ‘extremely controversial flu experiments’ in which the bird flu virus was engineered to become more lethal and contagious between ferrets. The goal was to see if it could mutate and become more lethal and contagious between humans, causing future pandemics. . . . However, for the past decade there have been red flags raised in the scientific community about biosecurity breaches in high containment biological labs in the U.S. . . . The federal moratorium on lethal virus experiments in the U.S. was lifted at the end of December 2017, 38 even though researchers announced in 2015 they had created a lab-created hybrid coronavirus similar to that of SARS that was capable of infecting both human airway cells and mice. . . .”

(Streamed live on April 23, 2020) 

An online teach-in with Arundhati Roy. Haymarket Books is an independent, radical, non-profit publisher.  http://www.haymarketbooks.org
Pre-order Arundhati Roy's forthcoming Azadi here: https://bookshop.org/a/1039/978164259... 

 In her latest essay, “The Pandemic Is a Portal” — from her forthcoming Haymarket Books publication ‘Azadi: Freedom. Fascism. Fiction.‘ — Arundhati Roy writes: What is this thing that has happened to us? It’s a virus, yes. In and of itself it holds no moral brief. But it is definitely more than a virus. Some believe it’s God’s way of bringing us to our senses. Others that it’s a Chinese conspiracy to take over the world. Whatever it is, coronavirus has made the mighty kneel and brought the world to a halt like nothing else could. Our minds are still racing back and forth, longing for a return to “normality,” trying to stitch our future to our past and refusing to acknowledge the rupture. But the rupture exists. And in the midst of this terrible despair, it offers us a chance to rethink the doomsday machine we have built for ourselves. Nothing could be worse than a return to normality. Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it. Join the acclaimed author to discuss this essay and her recent writings on the existential threat posed to Indian democracy by an emboldened Hindu nationalism, India’s new citizenship laws that discriminate against Muslims and marginalized communities and could create a crisis of statelessness on a scale previously unknown, and the meaning of freedom in a world of growing authoritarianism.

Arundhati Roy studied architecture in New Delhi, where she now lives. She is the author of the novels ‘The God of Small Things,’ for which she received the 1997 Booker Prize, and ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness.’ A collection of her essays from the past twenty years, ‘My Seditious Heart,’ was recently published by Haymarket Books. Her next book from Haymarket books, ‘Azadi: Freedom. Fascism. Fiction.’ will be published September 1.

Imani Perry is the Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University, where she also teaches in the Programs in Law and Public Affairs, and in Gender and Sexuality Studies. She is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, and spent much of her youth in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Chicago.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, APRIL 25









12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1110 - Miscellaneous Articles and Updates"



As the title indicates, this program presents a potpourri of articles covering a number of topics.



A common thread uniting them is the ongoing New Cold War and elements factoring in the impeachment proceedings underway in Washington.



Reputed evidence of a new “hack” allegedly done by the G.R.U. doesn’t pass the sniffs test.



Factors to be weighed in connection with the latest “hack” of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma (on whose board Hunter Biden sits–a fact that had been a focal point of the impeachment proceedings):



1.–Blake Darche, co-founder and Chief Security officer of Area 1, the firm that “detected” the latest “hack” has a strong past association with CrowdStrike, the firm that helped launch the New Cold War propaganda blitz about supposed Russian hacks. Darche was a Principal Consultant at CrowdStrike.

2.–CrowdStrike, in turn, has strong links to the Atlantic Council, one of the think tanks that is part and parcel to the Intermarium Continuity discussed in FTR #‘s 1098, 1099, 1100, 1101. Dmitri Alperovitch, the company’s co-founder and Chief Technology Officer is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council.

3.–An ironic element of the “analysis” of the hacks attributes the acts to “Fancy Bear” and the G.R.U., based on alleged laziness on the part of the alleged perpetrators of the phishing attack. (Phishing attacks are very easy for a skilled actor to carry out in relative anonymity.) Area 1’s conclusion is based on “pattern recognition,” which is the embodiment of laziness. We are to believe that the G.R.U./Fancy Bear alleged perp used a “cookie cutter” approach.



As we have noted in many previous broadcasts and posts, cyber attacks are easily disguised. Perpetrating a “cyber false flag” operation is disturbingly easy to do. In a world where the verifiably false and physically impossible “controlled demolition”/Truther nonsense has gained traction, cyber false flag ops are all the more threatening and sinister.



Now, we learn that the CIA’s hacking tools are specifically crafted to mask CIA authorship of the attacks. Most significantly, for our purposes, is the fact that the Agency’s hacking tools are engineered in such a way as to permit the authors of the event to represent themselves as Russian.



” . . . . These tools could make it more difficult for anti-virus companies and forensic investigators to attribute hacks to the CIA. Could this call the source of previous hacks into question? It appears that yes, this might be used to disguise the CIA’s own hacks to appear as if they were Russian, Chinese, or from specific other countries. . . . This might allow a malware creator to not only look like they were speaking in Russian or Chinese, rather than in English, but to also look like they tried to hide that they were not speaking English . . . .”



This is of paramount significance in evaluating the increasingly neo-McCarthyite New Cold War propaganda about “Russian interference” in the U.S. election, and Russian authorship of the high-profile hacks.



With Burisma at the center of the impeachment proceedings in Washington, we note some interesting relationships involving Burisma and its board of directors, on which Hunter Biden sits. ...

1-2 Nader Hashemi, “Pandemics, Democracies & Dictatorships”



Program #HASN003. Recorded in Highlands Ranch, CO on April 2, 2020.



Today, fear stalks the globe. The grim reaper is taking a heavy toll. The coronavirus pandemic has led to many thousands of deaths and tremendous economic dislocation. In this climate of fear, authoritarian regimes from Saudi Arabia to Hungary, from Russia to Turkey, from Iran to the Philippines use the crisis as a pretext to curtail civil liberties, expand police power and surveillance, silence their opponents, settle old scores, muzzle the press and jail dissidents. The pattern repeats in different shapes and forms among tyrants and would-be tyrants. Indian prime minister Modi has thrown journalists critical of his rule in jail. Kashmir remains under military control. In Washington, the U.S. president has declared “ultimate authority. I call the shots.” How can people in democratic societies effectively respond to the current crisis?




Nader Hashemi is Director of the Center for Middle East Studies and teaches Middle East and Islamic politics at the Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. He is the author of ‘Islam, Secularism and Liberal Democracy’ and co-editor of ‘The People Reloaded, The Syria Dilemma and Sectarianization: Mapping the New Politics of the Middle East.’

2-3:30 Haymarket Special # 2: Haymarket books Coronavirus and Capitalism

from 31 March 2020:



"Capitalism Is The Disease: Mike Davis on the Coronavirus Crisis"

An online teach-in with Mike Davis, introduced by Andy Hsiao of Verso Books



Please join an online teach-in with renowned activist-scholar Mike Davis, author of numerous books, including 'The Monster at Our Door,' 'In Praise of Barbarians,' and the forthcoming 'Set the Night on Fire.'

Sponsored by Haymarket Books and Verso Books



Fifteen years ago, in his prescient book, 'The Monster At Our Door,' Mike Davis warned that a viral catastrophe was being cooked up in the toxic vat built by the combined dangers of global capitalist production, ecological devastation, and the intentional, politically motivated neglect of public services the world over. As coronavirus continues to spread, largely unabated, we are witnessing both profound acts of solidarity among working people, and the grotesque depths to which the ruling class is willing to sink for the sake of maintaining their profits. And these are only the early days of what will likely become a medical Katrina.



The pandemic has shown that capitalist globalization is biologically unsustainable in the absence of a truly international public health infrastructure, and we can say for sure that such an infrastructure will never exist until peoples’ movements break the power of Big Pharma and for-profit health care. Doing so will demand an independent socialist design for human survival well beyond even a Second New Deal.



In this virtual teach-in, Mike Davis will offer his appraisal of the crisis so far, discuss the urgent need for international solidarity to end this (and future) pandemics, and take questions from our digital audience.

12-12:30 Brian Eno and Yanis Varoufakis: 'The Future After Corona'




By Maria April 7, 2020Newest Podcasts






This conversation took place on April 4, 2020. A world renowned artist, Brian Eno, and the former Greek finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, are raising questions about the social and cultural consequences of the corona pandemic. Will we be able to design the future of a new civilization or will politicians and corporations hold on to the extraordinary powers they now have taken.






Brian Eno is an English musician, record producer, visual artist, best known for his pioneering work in ambient music and contributions to rock, pop, and electronics. He is also a member of the British Labour Party and campaigned door to door for Jeremy Corbyn.






Yanis Varoufakis was an internationally known economist and academic when he was elected to the Greek parliament as a member of the Syriza party. He served as Minister of Finance in 2015. And resigned when Syriza broke its promise to re-negotiate Greece’s debt and curtail the austerity measures which had led to the longest recession in post-war history.






In February 2016, Varoufakis co-founded the Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25) joined by notables such as Noam Chomsky and Brian Eno. To this day DiEM25 fights to democratize the European Union and stop the rise of fascism in some EU member states.






Brian Eno and Yanis Varoufakis were sheltering in place in their homes in England and Greece. They spoke via a scratchy internet connection on DiEMTV – that’s archived on YouTube. They call DiEMTV “our media playground, away from the mass media dictatorship. This is our stage, your home, our news stand.”


Yanis Varoufakis is hosting.

Yes, Numbers Matter


Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD


Progressive Radio Network, April 8, 2020


For the millions of people who are following the daily reports and analyses of the COVID-19 pandemic, one thing should be evident. There are far more questions arising than answers, and there are certainly less answers to be relied upon. Consequently, we are being inundated with numbers and more numbers. The number of cases of infection. The number of tests performed or that should be performed. The number of masks, hospital beds and ventilators necessary. And the number of fatalities. Consider the early predictions made by NIAID director Anthony Fauci that we might expect 1.7 million deaths only to later reduce his numbers to that of a regular flu season. Or there is one of the nation’s chief physicians serving Congress and the Supreme Court, Dr. Brian Monahan, who pulled unsubstantiated figures from the astral plane to warn NBC News that up to 150 million Americans will become infected.


Moreover, confusion seems to be rampant throughout much of the nation’s healthcare infrastructure. We are being deprived of basic facts because even the experts don’t have them. Perhaps we have all seen the images of medical personnel having to wear black garbage bags as protective gear in a New York hospital or nurses’ reports about having to wash and share face masks due to shortages. One revelation that COVID-19 is mirroring back to us is dire state of our corporate healthcare system and the dearth of doctors compared to other developed nations. But should we be surprised about the failures of American medicine? Funding that should go towards a resilient medical infrastructure and preventative health measures in times of emergency has been neglected for decades. If the nation’s healthcare infrastructure had progressed to meet its population’s demand it would have lessened the pandemic significantly. Instead the US budget has been funneled off to sustain our imperialist military adventures and provide bailouts for the mega-transnational corporations, banks and billionaires.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, APRIL 15






12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1109 - Deutsche Bank, “Suicides,” The Supreme Court and Team Trump (Send in The Clowns, Part 2)"









While the public’s attention was focused on the impeachment proceedings, highly suspicious information surfaced involving the finances of “Team Trump,” Deutsche Bank, ostensible “suicides,” and apparent destruction of financial records.


With the failure of a Trump filing in appeals court, this concatenation appears to be headed to the Supreme Court, where both Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh clerked for former Justice Anthony Kennedy. (Kavanaugh took Kennedy’s seat.)


During the confirmation hearings of both judges, none of the occupants of the Democratic Senatorial Clown Car brought up the fact that Justice Kennedy’s son Justin was in charge of Deutsche Bank’s real estate lending department when the institution was Trump’s only lender. Justin Kennedy also had strong professional transactions with Jared Kushner’s real estate operations, as well.


Thomas Bowers–a key Deutsche Bank official involved with Donald Trump’s dealings with the bank–allegedly committed suicide in late November of 2019, as “The Donald” attempted to keep his financial records from Congressional investigators. ” Thomas Bowers, identified as a former Deutsche Bank executive who signed off on controversial loans to President Donald Trump, died last week after apparently taking his own life at 55.. . . . ‘One source who has direct knowledge of the FBI’s investigation into Deutsche Bank said that federal investigators have asked about Bowers and documents he might have. Another source who has knowledge of Deutsche Bank’s internal structure said that Bowers would have been the gatekeeper for financial documents for the bank’s wealthiest customers.’ . . . .”


In addition to Mr. Bowers, a Deutsche Bank executive named William Broeksmit allegedly committed suicide in 2014. His son, Val, has given the FBI documents involving the bank’s dealings with Team Trump. “Federal authorities are investigating whether Deutsche Bank complied with laws meant to stop money laundering and other crimes, the latest government examination of potential misconduct at one of the world’s largest and most troubled banks . . . . The investigation includes a review of Deutsche Bank’s handling of so-called suspicious activity reports that its employees prepared about possibly problematic transactions, including some linked to President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner . . . . The same federal agent who contacted Ms. McFadden’s lawyer also participated in interviews of the son of a deceased Deutsche Bank executive, William S. Broeksmit. . . . . . . . F.B.I. agents met this year with Val Broeksmit, whose father was a senior Deutsche Bank executive who committed suicide in January 2014. Mr. Broeksmit said he had provided the agents with internal bank documents and other materials that he had retrieved from his father’s personal email accounts. . . .”






Program Highlights Include: Discussion of the alleged “suicide” of Calogero Gambino, a Deutsche Bank attorney; the fact that Anthony Kennedy only agreed to resign after he was assured that Brett Kavanaugh would be named as his replacement.
