Watergate turns 50. Inside the White House Plumbers w/ author Matt Krogh

June 17th is the 50th anniversary of the Watergate break in. In 1972, five men were arrested breaking into the Democratic National Committee HQ at the Watergate Hotel in Washington D.C. They were part of a group that operated out of the Nixon White House called the “Plumbers.” Their job was to investigate leaks in the White House and conduct other surveillance and sabotage against Nixon’s political enemies.

You Tube Censors the Green and Red Podcast!

Clearly, the Green and Red Podcast is a fly in someone’s ointment. YouTube has taken down our episode about America’s culture wars calling it “misinformation” and “inappropriate.”
What did we say? We talked about guns, abortion rights, Texas, and the bleak state of American society and politics–in other words, what you see every day. Social media enables right-wing violence, the big lie, and COVID denial, but they canceled Green & Red’s discussion of those realities.
They let right wingers and anti-vaxxers go crazy on those platforms, but not us. Free speech isn’t really that free.

Ukraine in the Brain w/ Vladimir Putin, Joe Biden and George W. Bush

The ruling class follies continue both at home and abroad.

Another $40 billion going to aid the Ukrainian war effort while there are baby formula and COVID vaccine shortages in the U.S. Plus George W. Bush gives a speech at the Bush Institute about stolen Russian elections (what about Florida 2000?) and illegal invasions of Iraq… er… Ukraine..

In all seriousness, the brutality of military and economic war against populations around the war is heartbreaking. We continue our commentary on the history and politics around the war in Ukraine.
