Sean Hannity is a SnakeOil Salesman (Bakken that is)

snake-oil-salesman
Here we go with the carrot-dangling, smoke-blowing, shameless, self-righteous insults that get thrown at working-class people trying to stay employed like lit cigarette butts.

BREAKING NEWS!!! According to Sean Hannity, you unemployed folks out there would be gainfully employed; making between 70 and 100k a year, if you just moved to North Dakota.

Listen to Hannity’s big-tent solution.

As far as news reporting goes, I think this gentleman ought to get Hannity’s job:

 

Keystroke Lashing

And then there’s this lovely little reply to a request to connect from Job Bank head Kelly Blazek–ironically Cleveland’s “Communicator of the Year”:

“I love the sense of entitlement in your generation,” she wrote, then continued. “You’re welcome for your humility lesson for the year. Don’t ever reach out to senior practitioners again and assume their carefully curated list of connections is available to you, just because you want to build your network.”

And what did the “entitled” young lady do to deserve such a rotten keystroke lashing? She emailed Ms. Blazek asking to be added to her job board. Read the full story here.

I would like to add snakeoil salesman to Sean Hannity’s title. Also, I think Blazek just raised the bar on the definition of “rejection letter” quite drastically.

Revolution & Beer’s WC Turck Moderates Panel at “Shadows Of Liberty” Screening

WC Turck moderated a panel discussion after the free screening of the new and important film “Shadows of Liberty,” Tuesday night. The event was held in the historic and beautiful Lincoln Hall, at the Northwestern University School of Law. This very room has been the location for many of the most important events related to the telecommunications act and media regulation in the last decade. Joining the panel were filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay; Dale Lehman, WZRD 88.3 FM News Director; Mitchell Szczepanczyk of Chicago Media Action; Nancy Wade, Green Party congressional candidate in Illinois’ 5th district; of Mike Kalas of Multikulti. Special thanks for Chicago Media Action for editing the video of the lively discussion that ensued.

Film Trailer:

ABOUT SHADOWS OF LIBERTY: Shadows of Liberty reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover‐ups and corporate control. Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes an intrepid journey through the darker corridors of the American media landscape, where global conglomerates call the shots. For decades, their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values. In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone. Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news?

FEATURING: Danny Glover, Julian Assange, Dan Rather, Amy Goodman, David Simon, Daniel Ellsberg, Norman Solomon, Dick Gregory, Roberta Baskin, Robert McChesney, John Nichols, Chris Hedges, Kristina Borjesson, and many more.
OFFICIAL SELECTION: IDFA, Sheffield Doc/Fest, HotDocs, Vancouver Intl. Film Festival, DOKFILM, Bergen Intl. Film Festival, Canberra Intl. Film Festival, Leeds Intl. Film Fest, Docs DF, London Intl. Documentary Festival, Open City Documentary Festival

Struggling To Win A Free Society

On this show we’re talking with Melissa, Gabriel, and Pablo, three Chilean organizers visiting the US to share their wisdom regarding working class organizing in Chile. They paint a picture of what it has been like for left-wing, working-class people’s movements in Chile to successfully organize against the tidal wave of neoliberalism that crashed down on their country during the rain of the Pinochet dictatorship.

Chile has a long history of working class struggle in shanty towns, factories, mines, community organizations, and schools. In the 20 years after the US supported coup which overthrew Salvador Allende’s government, much of the organizing was done underground. However after the fall of the dictatorship in 1990, there was a new rise of mass popular organization in the country. Anarchists have been a major force in the social movements, strategically organizing to build power. This has manifested in solidarity for the Mapuches, anarchists winning the student union elections at the University of Chile, militant pro-abortion actions, and libertarian labor organizations.This national tour brings three individuals involved in these struggles to talk about the lessons learned and to create solidarity across hemispheres. This winter, the speakers will be traveling throughout the country, coming to Chicago during the first week of February, and we hope that you can spread the word and hear about the important work that is happening in Chile.

Below is the information for their speaking tour, happening in multiple locations around Chicago.

Chile tiene una larga historia de lucha de la clases en los barrios marginales, las fábricas, las minas, las organizaciones comunitarias y escuelas. En los 20 años después del golpe de Estado apoyado por los EE.UU. que derrocó al gobierno de Salvador Allende, gran parte de la movilización se hizo subterráneo. Sin embargo después de la caída de la dictadura en 1990, se produjo un nuevo aumento de la organización popular de masas en el país. Los anarquistas han sido una fuerza importante en los movimientos sociales, la organización estratégica de construir poder. Esto se ha manifestado en solidaridad con los mapuches, la victoria de los anarquistas en las elecciones de la asociación de estudiantes de la Universidad de Chile, en las acciones a favor del aborto militantes y organizaciones laborales libertarios.

Esta gira nacional lleva a tres individuos implicados en estas luchas para hablar sobre las lecciones aprendidas y crear solidaridad entre los hemisferios . Este invierno, los presentadores estarán viajando por todo el país, llegando a Chicago durante la primera semana de febrero, y esperamos que puedan correr la voz y escuchar acerca de la importante obra que está pasando en Chile.

Interview: The NATO3 Defense Committee


A special thanks goes out to the NATO3 Defense Committee for having a member join us last Saturday. We appreciate, and stand in solidarity with, your work to support all prisoners of this system. Brent, Jared, and Brian are now heroes of this movement. Who knows if they really intended on it, but they have managed to take on the force of anti-democratic hostility served by the state, and delivered a defeat to the overzealous prosecution. Surely, the cost to them and their family is enormous. That is why we say they are heroes.

It says a lot about the radical community here that groups like the NATO 3 defense committee have formed to support those who came from elsewhere to fight this fight; and got nabbed in the process. Let us hold the NATO3 in our thoughts and prayers, and advocate for leniency in their pending sentences.

Please check out the support site, and donate to their jail fund if you can.

Reactionary of the Week: Rebecca Costa’s yoga-style defense of Blackwater’s Erik Prince.

Publication1

Simply bending over doesn’t describe the incredible feat of dexterity by talk host Rebecca Costa. Costa, 59, the incessantly boastful author of one book, ‘The Watchman’s Rattle’ could apparently not heed her pseudo-eugenics polemic, which proffers evolutionary imperatives from everything to terrorism to education, by thinking rather than squatting during a recent interview with Blackwater’s founding CEO Erik Prince. If she was attempting to prove an evolutionary imperative’s penchant for trumping morally reasoned thought she succeeded. There are Nazis rolling in their grave (not to mention-yet-and dead Iraqi civilians) who are kicking themselves that they lost out on a media defender like Costa. But then again, Prince is smiling, and that’s the main thing.

Costa on her show showed the greatest sensitivity to Mr. Prince because, this self-professed “progressive” wants so badly to be fair to all sides. She proclaimed Blackwater-a corporate contractor, who, like so many good free market corporate religionists, have learned that profits stem from billing directly the American taxpayer-is a wing of the military. Sure it is, like Pizza Hut and Taco Bell at Bagram in Afghanistan, like Boeing and Ratheon, and oh yes, Augusto Pinochet! Costa is nothing more than a right-winger in progressive clothing.

Need I list the dangers, not to mention the myriad “transgressions” by Prince and Blackwater? He once famously boasted, ‘‘We are trying to do for the national security apparatus what FedEx did for the Postal Service.’’ Interesting choice of words, since FedEX tried to put the Post Office out of business, bad-talks it constantly, but uses the postal service as their prime carrier of choice to move packages they can’t, unless what he means is that FedEx has secret operatives around the nation killing threatening yard dogs from helicopters, as well as any other animal that might be within a five block radius? Deep breath!

Only following orders from the CIA? That’s what Costa retorted with greater quantity, but the same effect as a Midwestern suburbanite’s first experience with Mexican tap water. And where have we heard that defense before? But Costa just wants to be fair to all sides. Because the St Valentine’s massacre wasn’t about the murder of 6 loosely connected fellows to the Moran gang, plus one innocent bystander, it was, as we all know, important to hear Machinegun Kelley and Al Capone’s side of the story. “It was all a big misunderstanding, your honor!”

Costa’s show, which runs in Chicago on a supposed progressive station, turned this night into a full-fledged defense and apology for a group that has, just for a taste here, fired indiscriminately around a Baghdad street, and who has been accused of flagrantly killing with impunity, including an Iraqi father, while leaving his wife and daughter seriously wounded. To this Costa offered a soulful defense, saying, “…if Blackwater is ordered by the CIA to take out a known terrorist and injures a bystander, are they culpable?” Her guest, Dr. Stephan Wagner from the Monterey College of Law, who would have made a great Nazi lawyer, defended Prince by comparing him to George Washington who also used civilians during the revolutionary war???!!!

Think this was an aberration? Weekly we are treated on the local “Progressive” station to her stealth Rightwing propaganda, disguised as “shouldn’t we all just have a substantive dialogue and come together?” Instead, what she is really doing is moving the Rightwing ball forward with her matter-of-fact, don’t it just make sense homey wisdom. that same sort of “well don’t it just stand to reason” ivy-league style “git ‘er done” tripe.

This week she had a wink and giggle fest with Republican governor George Pataki who proceeded to go on a rant about Obamacare. Not that I don’t have my issues with Obama not living up to his promises, and even out right betraying many, but Costa just gushed over Pataki and couldn’t agree with him more.

Costa is a front, in my ranting and indignant opinion, for a general corporate marketing scheme that seeks to pull liberals and progressives subtly sway them from issues critical to the survival of a democratic republic and to those who oppose a growing global and national corporate hegemony. Costa’s one book, touted and heralded by a long list of corporate hegemonists and biblical irrationalists argues that evolution drives the issues affecting modern society. I might argue that a lack of it drives Costa’s mouth and moral compass.

WC Turck has been called “The most dangerous voice on the Left.” He can be heard on Chicago’s only voice for activism, and the true Progressive voice, Q4 radio, streaming weekdays from 9-11am. And listen to Revolution and Beer Weekend with partner and cohost BL Murray Saturdays from 1-3pm. Turck is the author of 4 books. His first novel “Broken: One soldiers unexpected journey home,” was recommended by the National Association of Mental Health Institutes in 2008 for its treatment of PTSD. “Everything for Love” is a memoir of love and war during the siege of Sarajevo. “Burn Down the Sky” was published in 2010 on Amazon as an e-book fictionalized his experiences and insights on the frontlines of the war on terror. “The Last Man,” an Occupy novel is a warning about world ruled by a single corporation. Turck wrote and produced two critically acclaimed plays, “Occupy my Heart: A revolutionary Christmas Carol,” and “The People’s Republic of Edward Snowden.” His current project is to build and proliferate truly independent media and radio stations across the country.

ACTION ALERT: Violent Retaliation Against Chicago Anti-Eviction

We received this request for action from past Revolution and Beer guest Toussaint Losier, current Ph.D student at the University of Chicago, and organizer with Chicago Anti-Eviction:

“On Monday, a handful of us in Chicago went with Mrs. Yinka Solebo as she went to take this petition to the manager of a local PNC Bank branch.

When we she went to hand deliver her family’s petition, the branch manager acted as if she had no business being there and refused to look up her name in their system.

When I tried to help hand over the Solebos’ petition to the branch manager, they literally threw our petition out of the door.

When I explained that more than a thousand people around the county wanted to know why PNC Bank would not take the time to sit and negotiate a solution with the Solebos, the bank’s security guard grabbed me and nearly threw me to the ground – and then called the police and had me arrested.

Even though our efforts to help the Solebos are clearly being criminalized, we will do our part to make sure this family is being treated with dignity.

Can you take a moment to help us?

If so, please considering signing and sharing the petition for the Solebos and calling 412-803-1296 for Beverly Duboski, Secretary to PNC Bank CEO William Demchak and tell her:

‘Hello, my name is ________________. I am calling on behalf of Yomi Solebo, who use to live at 1920 Vermette Circle in Plainfield, Illinois. When unemployment struck, his and his family tried to work with PNC to pay what they could. Instead of working with them, PNC Bank foreclosed on them and refused to go to court when they tried to stop their eviction. For the past three months, the Solebos have been homeless and there home has been empty. We are demanding that PNC Bank give them an opportunity to pay off their mortgage and move back into their home.’

Also, please call the local PNC Bank branch at 773-483-9349 to tell the manager:

‘Hello, my name is _________________. I was shocked to learn that your branch refused to accept a petition that I signed regarding PNC Bank’s eviction of Yomi Solebo and his family from their Plainfield home. I was also shocked that you arrested one of the people tha tried to help deliver this petition. I am calling to demand that your bank drop the charges against those who were arrested.’

We will continue to work with the Solebo family and we appreciate any help that you can offer. 

Sincerely, 

Toussaint and the rest of the Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign”

Progressives held hostage Day 11

Usual suspects? Real progressives might wish, but progressives and the progressive movement have suffered a betrayal from within. Progressives have been taken hostage by Democrat party apparchiks and ideologues. Hardly more than a week ago so-called progressive talk host Stephanie Miller and her crew on air mocked a listener who was concerned she was not addressing the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact that would cripple national sovereignty, subvert US law, allow corporations the power of treaty in looting national treasuries, reverse environmental laws and eliminate net-neutrality. Miller dismissed the listener’s concerns smugly calling it the ”trans-pacific something…”

And it isn’t just Miller, who obviously has been instructed, or is in blind allegiance to the Obama administration for message control over Obama’s apparent insistence on getting legislation for the treaty fast-tracked through Congress. Fast track would prevent debate and oversight. Congress, when they have been allowed access to information about TPP, are forced to keep details secret from the American people.

Miller has become a tool for the two party system; a blind partisan for the Obama administration to the detriment of issues critical to our democracy and to true Progressives. Daily her show becomes one of distraction. It has sold itself, apparently, sacrificing real issues for clowning polemics on distraction, such as the Chris Christie story. With fleeting and minor success over gay marriage-successes the Right will erase quickly against a weakened Progressive movement- Miller seems content to rest on those illusionary laurels.

On this past Friday’s show there was nothing on TPP, the NATO3 or the MICAT 3. Instead, there was almost an hour of Woody Allen sex scandal, gay dinosaurs and the official greeting of Missouri. Clearly those are paramount issues. Certainly Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage and Glenn Beck are just as focused on those paramount issues.

The MICATS 3 facing 3 years for protesting the culprit of the worst oil spill in US history, and not a word from Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz or MSNBC

The MICATS 3 facing 3 years for protesting the culprit of the worst oil spill in US history, and not a word from Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz or MSNBC

And it isn’t only Miller. This week Ed Schultz, another party blowhard, came out in favor of the XL Keystone Pipeline, which might explain his failure in even mentioning Lisa Leggio, Barb carter and Vicci Hamlin, all of whom should be household names to all Progressives. Schultz has also gone radio-silent on TPP, which initially he was against. What has changed? My guess is that the administration-pro TPP and pro XL- now are attempting through Schultz and others in the corporately-co-opted pretend progressive press to massage the message.

These fake Progressives once helped to rally a community, but now have abandoned it with a cruelly co-opted message of distraction. What is far worse, this comes at a time when true Progressives are under assault more from the Obama administration than from the Right. Instead, the Right, knowing that Obama is fully at war with the progressive movement maintains their constant and daily drumbeat of rightwing messaging. MSNBC might as well be the Chris Christie Channel for all it covers anymore.

I am so disgusted by the lack of cohesion and support for a vibrant and active Progressive community, I am put off entirely by the lazy leftists and facebook liberals. When it became obvious that the so-called Leftie media was instead steering dissent and issues to protect and message for the Obama administration then enough was enough. AM1710-Q4 radio, Que4.org was born to start rebuilding the Progressive and activist media the Millers, Schultz’ and MSNBCs have left in shambles.

It’s time to reject the party line, because the Democrats have fallen in line with the corporatists alongside their Republican cousins. Build a new media, stand together on the significant issues and start fighting the real enemy. Meantime call Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz and ask them to begin addressing the actual issues important to Progressives and to the future of this Republic, or just cop to the fact that their nose is so far up Obama’s ass they can see what he’s just eaten for lunch.
