“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” – Robert F.

12-1 Dave Emory, ‘’For the Record #1244 - FTR#1244 How Many Lies Before You Belong to The Lie?, Part 17''


First of a projected four-part discussion of the decisively important work of former Swiss intelligence officer Jacques Baud, this program presents and details fundamentals of the Ukraine war and the history leading up to it. This analysis will be supplemented in the remaining programs in the series.

His CV is presented below, and will be supplemented by more detail in an interview presented with him.

The reading of this article will be continued in our next program. For the convenience and benefit of the audience, the entire article is presented in this description. 

Baud points out that the presentation of the war in the West is badly skewed, with politicians and media pursuing ideologized fantasies, rather than substantive analysis coming from intelligence agencies.

The essence of Baud’s war analysis is presentation of compelling documentation that the Ukraine war was begun by the West—the U.S. and NATO in particular—in order to weaken Russia.

Facilitating a murderous program of systematic atrocity committed by Ukraine’s government against the Russian-speaking minority of Ukraine, it is the West and the Biden administration in particular, that bear responsibility for the conflict.

As will be seen, analysis of the actual conflict itself is fundamentally skewed in the U.S. and Europe. Far from being “incompetent,” Russia quickly executed maneuver warfare to cut-off the bulk of the Ukrainian army, which was poised for a lethal offensive against the Russian-speaking East.

Russia’s primary objective—completely misunderstood in the West and systematically misrepresented by political and media interests alike—was largely achieved within a short period.

The Russian forces occupied territory roughly equivalent to the U.K in a matter of days, fixing Ukrainian forces with a diversionary move toward Kiev, eliminating Ukraine’s ability to move large numbers of troops and trapping the primary Ukrainian forces in the East.

This will be more completely discussed, analyzed and presented in the remaining programs featuring Baud’s work….

2-3 The Ralph Nader Radio Hour

 In the midst of finding out how Donald Trump tried to dismantle democracy with the Big Lie, Ralph welcomes Professor Thomas McGarity, who has chronicled how Trump, as president, tried to demolish government from the inside in his book “Demolition Agenda: How Trump Tried to Dismantle American Government, and What Biden Needs to Do to Save It.  ”Thomas McGarity is the William Powers Jr. and Kim L. Heilbrun Chair in Tort Law at the University of Texas at Austin School of Law and the past president of the Center for Progressive Reform. He is the author of Pollution, Politics, and PowerFreedom to HarmThe Preemption War, and Demolition Agenda: How Trump Tried to Dismantle American Government, and What Biden Needs to Do to Save It.

That’s the great challenge of progressive populism. I think it’s out there and I think it has potential. This desire to be protected against the uncontrolled, unrestrained free market is out there… But so far, so many of them have heard the appeal of Donald Trump and others that is based on fear and resentment. This notion of replacement, the notion of us against the other. And the appeal to fear so far, has overwhelmed the appeal to good citizenship. We all owe each other something. And one thing we owe ourselves is protection from corporate malfeasance.    Thomas McGarity, author of Demolition Agenda

12-1 Alan Watts, "The Joker" Part 4 of 4

"G. Gurjieff used to say that there are four ways of liberation; of the fakir, the monk, the yogi, and the sly man (the joker or trickster who goes in by the back way). We explore the ancient and universal symbolism of the Buddha-as-Joker to find out why no laughter is allowed in church or in court."   (AW)
