Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dimitri Lascaris January 18th, 2021

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s Home Edition, recorded on this date, January 18th, 2021.

And Happy Martin Luther King Day to all who admire the man murdered for opposing the military-industrial complex. Today, almost fifty-three years after that tragic event, Canada is intent on following full-heel America’s lead deeper into the Big Muddy of forever war and preparation for war.

In the House of Commons, despite pleas for sanity from the commonality, all parties there agree on the course charted by militarists and empire builders. Nowhere is this sad fact more egregiously demonstrated than in the Canadian government’s determination to sink billions into a new generation of war ships that will, in part, conduct “freedom of navigation” exercises meant to “counter China’s growing influence in Asia.”

Dimitri Lascaris is a Montreal-based activist lawyer/journalist, past Real News Network correspondent, Green Party of Canada member, and very nearly its leader, falling just short of taking the job after eight ballots in last Fall’s leadership contest.

Today, Dimitri Lascaris and Canada marching into the mire of endless warfare.

Gorilla Radio Impeachment Special with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff January 14, 2021

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s Home Edition recorded on this date, January 14th, 2021.

Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted again to impeach outgoing president, Donald Trump. Only ten Republican legislators joined the majority Democrats to make Trump the first American president twice indicted by the House.

The next step is a trial in the Republican dominated Senate, which failed to convict the first time around. All this all comes in the wake of the January 6th storming of the Capitol by Trump supporters following a rally in which Trump reiterated his stolen election mantra, exhorting the crowd to “fight like Hell” to take back their government.

Dave Lindorff is an award-winning journalist, author, and founding member of the media collective, ThisCantBeHappening.net. Lindorff’s book titles include, ‘The Case for Impeachment: Legal Arguments for Removing President George W. Bush from Office’ and ‘This Can’t Be Happening! Resisting the Disintegration of American Democracy.’

Today, Dave Lindorff and will Donald Trump’s last stand take American democracy down with him?
