New World Notes News
Vol. 3, No. 48 -- November 27, 2010
This week in New World Notes, radio program #143, November 30:
In briefThe poor, the working class, and at last (surprise!) the middle class have all been shafted by the mainstream "liberal" institutions that once--to an extent--looked out for our interests. Journalist/prophet Chris Hedges identifies a half-dozen such institutions that have by now said, "If you can't beat 'em [the plutocrats], serve 'em!" To Hedges, the worst offenders are the liberal Christian Church, the media, and--worst of all--the Democratic Party.
This program focuses on the Democratic Party.
We'll hear parts of a fine talk by Hedges--on the Dems from Clinton onwards--and some ruminations by me. And we'll read aloud a nice essay by Philadelphia journalist Dave Lindorff. Lindorff focuses on the perfidy of the Obama administration in particular. Continuity we can believe in!
Other audio included: the "I'm as mad as hell" rant by "Howard Beale" (from the movie Network) & 2 songs by Fred Eaglesmith.
Top: Satan (former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel) tempting the President.
This week's graphics (except Clinton photo) are by David Dees.
