We start out this week’s archive radio show in Bubble World! That magical land wherein reality has absolutely nothing to do with reality!

Then — as an example — we provide evidence that the banksters — after having stolen nearly everything in the world — now have too much money and there is no longer anything to spend it on and there is nothing left to invest in! What a dilemma! I am crying a river here!

Then, we dig in with a little definitional commentary as we simultaneously provide an update concerning the current situation (as of 2015) in the government’s attempt to seize monopoly control of our buds here in the State of Washington.

An ex-French intelligence agent attempts a little ‘truth and reconciliation’ concerning the murder of a Greenpeace activist and the conjunctive sinking of the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior back in 1985.

The Thunderbolt reveals a powerful weapon that we have (though most people have never even heard of it) called ‘jury nullification’.

I briefly describe my collision with the United States Army and later with the United States Prison Industrial Complex.

We describe the differences between the government’s reactions to unarmed left-wing activists and armed right-wing activists.

We cogitate upon how atrocity always requires a claim of virtue.

Then — for the feature piece — we provide an historical biography of an undercover behind-the-lines anti-Nazi activist that you have almost certainly never heard of named Albert Göering.

We live in a contradictory world. Listen with care.
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at
