Last month, Philadelphia Judge Leon Tucker ruled, in part, favourably in a two year-old plea by Mumia Abu-Jamal’s legal team. They had argued, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice presiding over a previous appeal should have recused himself. Abu-Jamal has spent nearly 40 years in prison for the 1981 murder of Philly police officer, Daniel Faulkner; … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, David Swanson, Janine Bandcroft January 17th, 2019”

Americans can congratulate themselves, and the rest of the planet can celebrate, Donald Trump’s first year in the White House has finished without Global immolation. Even so, there’s no denying it’s been a bumpy ride. From circumventing the traditional isolation of the Oval Office and upending political sacred cows, to undermining strategic alliances and trade … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Charles Officer, Christina Nikolic Feb. 1st, 2018”

While tomorrow’s date may not live infamous, remembered forever as the beginning of the end of Donald J. Trump, it could well prove the calendrical moment marking the end of the beginning of his short-lived political career. Tomorrow, June 8th, 2017, James Comey, the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, fired amidst that … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Patrick Henningsen, Christina Nikolic June 8th, 2017”

Welcome to the GR FunDriving Show! We’ll be leaving the usual format today to enjoin the ballyhoo, barking as on the midways of old, all to excite and delight your ears and mind.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Mel A. Goodman, Dave Lindorff, Janine Bandcroft Dec 7, 2016

If November was the “stepping off” point, then December is the “hurtling towards the hard landing” of January’s Trump presidency. Libertarians, and what remains of the Left who took cold comfort in the candidate’s expressed wish to draw in America’s military talons must today be nervously eyeing Mr. T.’s Manhattan aerie as one after another … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Mel A.

This Week on GR by C. L. Cook – Gorilla-Radio.com July 27, 2016 It may be America’s most fractious elections ever; not so much because of the bitterness accrued during the gridlocked Obama years by both Republicans and Democrats, but more due to toxic levels of acrimony within each of the parties between grassroots activists … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Peter Lee, Janine Bandcroft July 27, 2016”

This Week on GR by C. L. Cook – Gorilla-Radio.com June 22, 2016 Another mass shooting in the United States, and a lot more of the now too well practiced responses from government, media, interest groups, and the way-out-there factions that see conspiracy behind this event, (if it really even happened!) and most others. Predictably, … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Ken Stone, Janine Bandcroft June 22, 2016”

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Ken Boon, Janine Bandcroft Jan. 13, 2016

2016 marks incarceration year 35 for jail yard journalist, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and regardless of what anyone may think about his guilt or innocence, or the spurious nature of the State’s case, or despicable way in which American Justice is generally conducted, the fact remains: Jailers are responsible for the health and well-being of those jailed. … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Ken Boon, Janine Bandcroft Jan. 13, 2016”

As spies go, the 600,000 cubic foot, eye-in-the-sky blimp floating at 16,000 feet outside Washington, D.C. is hardly discreet, but until it went rogue, breaking its tether and hieing for the coast, most Americans knew nothing about it, or its mission. Similarly, despite the ubiquitous presence of law enforcers of every description ceaselessly broadcast into … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Christopher Ketcham, Janine Bandcroft Nov. 4, 2015”

Seems the hits are coming one a minute in the Home of the Brave. Following months of protests over the police killings of unarmed men of colour, last week revealed another inexplicable use of deadly force by a policeman in North Charlston, who shot dead a fifty year old man fleeing a traffic stop. As … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff, Ramona de Graaf, Janine Bandcroft Apr. 15, 2015”

A world on fire: If it seems these last couple weeks have been more insane than usual, you’re not watching enough baseball. From the bombing of the citizenry of captive Gaza, and media-made invisible bombing of the citizenry of the captive cities of Eastern Ukraine, to typhoons, firestorms, and the mysterious fate of jetliners, (the … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Al Engler, Dave Lindorff, Janine Bandcroft July 21, 2014”
