Afghanistan. Health Care. Unemployment. The Economy. So many topics, so little time. Sing along to The Monkees' "Another Pleasant Valley Sunday" as you enjoy this week's talkies! Hawk General JIM JONES (ret.) comes out of retirement to push for more troops in Afghanistan on State of the King and Face the Bob with General TONY ZINNI (ret. too). Then U.N. Ambassador DR. SUSAN RICE visits Meet the David. This Snufagopolis lands the Former Oracle ALAN GREENSPAN who will tell George the entire global economic system is going in the crapper very soon, so Monday's Dow skyrockets to 15,000 before it drops to 5,000 by midweek. Everyone offers a nice cross-section of politicos, starting with CHUCK SCHUMER & JON CORNYN with This George and CARL LEVIN & IKE SKELTON on Face the Bob to FAKE NEWS tag team match of EVAN BAYH, LINDSEY GRAHAM, BOB CASEY and SAXBY CHAMBLISS and BARBARA BOXER vs. JON KYL on State of the King. Meanwhile PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS opines at More Lies, More Deceptions "The leaders of the G-20 countries, which account for 85% of the world’s income, cannot meet in an American city without 12,000 cops outfitted like the emperor’s storm troopers in Star Wars. And the US government complains about Iran." And in The Economy is a Lie, Too "If measured according to the methodology used when I was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, the unemployment rate today in the US is above 20%. Moreover, there is no obvious way of reducing it." Your best bet is the BTV Alerts with updates on the Honduras situation, GLENN GREENWALD, ROBERT GREENWALD and JEREMY SCAHILL (don't forget the NEW and VERY IMPORTANT BTV Action this week) and our prog/lib lineup, starting with PETER B. COLLINS interview with SIBEL EDMONDS. Then check out ANTIWAR RADIO for GARETH PORTER. Of course the entire Ring of Fire show is worth the listen. The Brick TeeVee Crew has gathered hot dogs, apple pie and crackerjack (AND BEER!) to mark the End of the 2009 MLB Season and Game #162 of a very bizzarre Tribe campaign. Best Wishes and Happy Trails to soon-to-be-Ex-Tribe Skipper ERIC WEDGE who used DARTS to make up his lineup card EVERY DAY during the season. The Crew recommends Wedgy should next manage in college so he can have a virtually unlimited player roster. Or become a FoxSports "analyst". The "street" has it that Wedgy is close to Braves long-time Manager BOBBY COX so look for Wedgy in the ATL next season as Cox finishes up his final season as Braves skipper. More dogs, peanuts and beer await the Crew on Wednesday for the MLB Divisional Playoffs! Best of luck to Victor Martinez (BOSOX) and last year's Cy Young Winner Cliff Lee (PHILLIES) and "Go Tribe West" aka The LA Dodgers!

DIEBOLD: RETURN OUR MONEY! - Velvet Revolution has been calling for accountability and transparency from electronic voting companies since launching its "Divestiture for Democracy” campaign in 2005. We are now putting all such companies on notice: Across the nation, we are fed up with false promises, shoddy and faulty voting systems, and continued knowing violation of the law. We demand accountability and we insist that public officials enforce their contracts and applicable federal and state standards! Our election system has been dangerously compromised. 'We the People' will not tolerate compromise on our freedoms, our liberty, our democracy. We will not compromise on our insistence that companies receiving taxpayer money act transparently and honestly. Send an email to Diebold/Premier, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen and California Attorney General Jerry Brown. CLICK HERE NOW!

    Info on Podcast #40 (mp3) Published on 26 September 2009 by admin in Podcast Info - Sibel Edmonds ungagged! In this exclusive one on one interview, Sibel tells the story of her hiring at the FBI, the administrative missteps and criminal behavior she became aware of, Turkey’s use of bribes and personal matters to compromise members of Congress and a top State Dept. official to advance its interests, and her revelations about Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) which have prompted a bitter attack in response from the congresswoman’s spokesman–and an open letter from Edmonds to Schakowsky inviting her to hold hearings on all of Sibel’s information. We were not able to get all the details in one interview, so Sibel has agreed to do another episode in the near future.
