Attack of the Governors! Governors from around the country flock to get face time on the Big Networks, led by THE GOVERNATOR himself on This (not) George facing off against PA's ED RENDELL. FAKE SNOOZE snags JENNIFER GRANHOLM (D-MI) to match wits and the canned responses from HALEY BARBOUR (R-MS) while State of the Candy gets DEVAL PATRICK (D-MA) to talk trash at JIM DOUGLAS (R-VT) in that cute DLC-our health-care-reform-is-working kinda way with EX-NJ-GUV JON CORZINE filling in the blanks (nice re-election campaign there, eh?). Meet the David snags a solo appearance with Leading Regressive TIM PAWLENTY (R-MN) with his henchman-teabagger-obstructionist-deconstructionalist buddy MIKE PENCE (R-IN) on the roundtable! 60Minutes has some interesting stuff on the on-going sad saga of BLACKWATER USA and the absolutely ridiculous rebuilding of GROUND ZERO nearly a decade later. You have much better luck in the BTV ALERTS with JOE STIGLITZ, GEORGE MONBIOT, THOMAS GEOGHEGAN and HARVEY WASSERMAN who pens at HuffPo Obama's Atomic Blunder "Georgia has been targeted largely because its regulators have demanded ratepayers put up the cash for the reactors as they're being built. Florida and Georgia are among a small handful of states taxing electric consumers for projects that cannot come on line for many years, and that may never deliver a single electron of electricity." See Brick TeeVee SOTU Wrap: Groundhog Day? for a further discussion of this abomination (OBAMANATION?) of U.S. nuclear policy. Add any news item on this topic you see, for safekeeping and reference. Meanwhile PBC continues with the "Boiling Frogs" series with COLEEN CROWLEY plus Middle East Expert JUAN COLE, while AntiWar Radio has The Other SCOTT HORTON to discuss the Gitmo "suicides" at Kamp No. MAX KEISER has some informative items while Ring of Fire Radio gets HENRY ROLLINS to talk about the teabagger "movement" and ROBERT GREENWALD. Brick TeeVee welcomes ACTION POINT WITH CYNTHIA BLACK now available all weekend on the HEAD ON RADIO weekend rotation. We hope to get the mp3 links soon. Tune in! The Brick TeeVee crew has been dealing with getting the new BTV Web Server on-line and rebuilding a workstation after its MoBo smoked. We seem to have things under control hardware-wise finally and the workstation took the XP install CD after about four dozen tries and a lot of technical ju jitsu (stupid CMOS and SATA drivers). The Brick TeeVee Crew STRONGLY RECOMMENDS you make back-ups of your most important stuff you have now because there are only TWO KINDS OF HARD DRIVES: the ones that HAVE failed and the ones the WILL fail. Caveat Emptor and all that. Have a great Sunday and next week!

* Firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
* Guarantee the right to vote and to participate, and to have our votes and participation count.
* Protect local communities, their economies, and democracies against illegitimate "preemption" actions by global, national, and state governments.

We won’t sit by ...while the bankers and militarists plunder this country and send our loved ones to fight in a war for empire!
When tens of thousands march in Washington, D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles on March 20 – we are going to tie together the issue of endless war and skyrocketing unemployment and poverty. If we don’t act, no one will.
Take to streets. Tell every family and friend, co-worker and fellow student that it's time to get on the bus. It’s time for the people to speak out. It’s time to raise hell! Get ON DA BUS HERE!
This is a huge undertaking and we can't do it without the help of thousands of people like you who are opposing the expanding wars and occupations. Please make your contribution today.

    Info on Podcast #98 Published on 16 FEB 2010 by admin in Podcast Info -- Coleen Rowley, 24-yr-FBI agent, on recent terror plots and the 9/11 Commission. This is another edition of the Boiling Frogs interview series, co-hosted with Sibel Edmonds. Rowley shares with us her views on the latest spectacle surrounding the Christmas Day foiled terrorist attempt, and how it reflects on policies that were implemented after 9/11. She provides us with insight into the pretend investigations carried out by the 9/11 Commission, and how they conducted many of their interviews of FBI witnesses and experts inside the FBI HQ and offices. Ms. Rowley talks about the absence of real investigations and accountability in almost any government related wrongdoing, our shameful treatment of inmates at Guantanamo, the alarming desensitization of our people bolstered by the culprit mainstream media, and much more.
    Info on Podcast #99 Published on 17 FEB 2010 by admin in Podcast Info -- Prof. Juan Cole on Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Kevin Kamps on Obama’s nuclear gamble. Prof. Cole teaches history at U of Michigan, and writes the Informed Comment blog, a great resource on America’s wars. We talk about the draw down of US troops in Iraq and Cole is optimistic about full withdrawal by the end of 2010. He describes the jockeying in Iraq over the March 7 elections and the influence of Iran and Ahmed Chalabi on the process. He details the capture of Mullah Baradar–the military leader of the “old” Taliban–by Pakistani and US operatives, and offers candid comments about the new US attack on Marjah. Kamps is an expert on nuclear waste at the think tank founded by Dr. Helen Caldicott, Beyond Nuclear and he is sharply critical of Obama’s decision to provide loan guarantees for Southern Co.’s plans to build two new nukes in Georgia so taxpayers take the risk and the utility takes the profits. In addition to the financial risk, Kamps talks about the fallacy that nukes are safe for people and the environment and the false promise that a blue ribbon panel can resolve the nuclear waste issues.
