“The announcement that the Department of Homeland Security would be launching its own Orwellian Ministry of Truth called the “Disinformation Governance Board” was met with scorn and hostility from critics across the political spectrum. Now the Board’s putative head, Nina Jankowicz, has submitted her resignation, the initiative has been put on ice and the Washington Post’s chief social media mean girl, Taylor Lorenz, has written an unhinged piece decrying the online bullying that sent the new agency packing.
Jimmy talks to The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and American comedian Kurt Metzger about the rise and precipitous fall of this ill-advised government censorship project.”
“During a recent segment on former Bush administration and McCain campaign staffer Nicolle Wallace’s MSNBC show, guest Erroll Southers, formerly of the FBI, explained that because of recent events the entire Republican Party needs to be labeled as “domestic terrorists.” He also erroneously claimed that 78 percent of murders in the US are committed by white supremacists before correcting himself on Twitter.

“Eric Clapton announced the cancellation of upcoming tour dates after the legendary guitar player contracted COVID-19. Having gone public with the injury he suffered after receiving a COVID vaccination, Clapton became the object of much hostility from vaccine promoters. As a result he has routinely been labeled an “anti-vaxxer,” so it’s not surprising that the online shitlib community reacted to the positive COVID diagnosis with unbridled glee.
Jimmy talks to The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and American comedian Kurt Metzger about the unseemly and illogical pleasure taken by so many liberals at Clapton’s misfortune.”
“Reports have emerged that Scandinavian nations Finland and Sweden plan to break with their centuries-long tradition of neutrality to pursue membership in NATO. If the applications are successful, will this latest increase in NATO’s ranks create an increased deterrent to further war with Russia, or will it bring the world ever-closer to World War III?
Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Aaron Maté (https://mate.substack.com) discuss the possibilities – and the dangers – of an ever-growing NATO on Russia’s doorstep.”
“It’s no secret that the various tentacles of the United States’ military industrial complex are all doing whatever they can to whip up interest in a war with China. The latest effort comes from NBC’s Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, who all but openly drooled during a segment imagining what a 2027 conflict between the two powers over a Chinese invasion of Taiwan might look like.
Jimmy and The Grayzone’s Aaron Maté (https://mate.substack.com) discuss the growing fervor for war with China as some of the excitement over the Ukraine conflict begins to abate.”
“The Buffalo shooter revealed in his rambling manifesto clear white supremacist beliefs, which many have used to point the finger of blame at Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has espoused similar theories. But the group few of those liberals want to acknowledge influencing this shooter? Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, which those same liberals are loudly insisting that the west support in the war against Russia.
Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger wonder why the uniformly pro-Ukraine media aren’t mentioning the shooter’s Azov connection.”
“Flying under the radar and unbeknownst to most, the World Health Organization is quietly pursuing an international treaty that would hand national sovereignty over healthcare decisions to the unaccountable global body, allowing the WHO to unilaterally declare pandemics and impose responses on individual nations. Not surprisingly, major WHO funder Bill Gates is fully supportive of the idea.
Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the possible consequences of this treaty and how the Microsoft founder would benefit from its signing.”
