Radical Agenda Ep. 287 – Gassed

Christopher Cantwell
April 13, 2017

I was listening to today’s White House Press Briefing in the car, and as soon as the words fell out of Sean Spicer’s mouth, I knew what exactly what the media was going to do. In case you didn’t catch it, the Trump Administration’s Press Secretary said that “even someone as despicable as Adolf Hitler, didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”There are of course those who doubt that six trillion Jews were murdered in Hitler’s gas chambers for no other reason than to make white people happy, but those people never seem to gain the prominence of a guy like Sean Spicer.  I wasn’t there, personally. But I always get skeptical when historical narratives become unlawful to question. Perhaps that’s why I’m here and not on Fox News.

The media was quick to pick up on this, and Spicer was quick to clarify that the difference was Hitler didn’t gas his own people. Shockingly enough, few if any journalists seemed comforted that Spicer differentiated between Jews and Germans in terms of who Hitler was killing. In a later interview with Wolf Blitzer, Spicer went full cuck and provided no defense at all for his statements, renouncing them completely and apologizing to literally everyone.

Given that Trump has caved on amnesty and Syria and the wall looks to be in jeopardy, perhaps we should expect that Sean will be fired before dawn. Perhaps he will leave with Jared Kushner’s shoe in his backside and an official Ivanka handprint across his cheek. After the leftist media is done destroying his career for almost brushing near doubts on certain narratives about the holocaust, perhaps he can be a guest on the Radical Agenda.

Until then, we’ll just have to keep punching up, having fun, and taking your calls at 747-234-2254 or RadicalAgenda on Skype.

So join us tonight, Tuesday April 11th 2017 at 10:15pm Eastern for a special off schedule episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like racist missiles.

SHOCK! First Female African-American Muslim Judge Found Dead Floating in Hudson River

New York – First African-American Muslim woman in US history to serve on the bench, was found dead Wednesday in the Hudson river. Her body washed up on the Manhattan side of the river, sources said.

New York Post reports:

Sheila Abdus-Salaam, 65, was discovered floating in the water near 132nd Street and Hudson Parkway at around 1:45 p.m., according to police sources.

Witnesses had spotted her fully clothed body and called 911, cops said.

Sources told The Post that Abdus-Salaam, who is an associate judge of the Court of Appeals, had been reported missing from her home in Harlem earlier in the day.

Her husband later identified her body. Sources said it showed no obvious signs of trauma or injuries indicating criminality or foul play, and that her death appeared to be a suicide.

South Korean Media Report U.S. Navy Seal Squad Training to Kill Kim Jong-un

The same U.S. Navy seal squad that killed al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden is reportedly training to assassinate the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un amid rising tensions in the region.

REPORT: SEAL Team Six Training to Take Out Kim Jong-Un

The special forces unit has been in South Korea taking part in drills as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea grow.

Seal Team Six, the same team that took out Osama bin Laden, is reportedly preparing to take out North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

They are participating in highly secretive drills with other U.S. forces in South Korea.

Alongside the SAS, Seal Team Six is THE go-to unit for taking out rogue leaders. Looks like Kimmy boy wonder is their next target.

The Sun UK reports:

US military officials confirmed “ground, air, naval and special operations” are taking part in “several joint and combined field training operations” which involve up to 17,000 troops.

And South Korean newspaper JoongAng Daily has claimed the teams would take part in a drill to simulate the removal of Kim Jong-un.

But US officials denied the elite troopers are preparing a raid to take out Kim.

President Trump commented on Kim Jong-Un’s mental state saying he “didn’t know” if Kim was mentally healthy. The U.S. just ordered an armada to be sent to the Korean peninsula as tensions rise between the hermit state and the U.S.

‘Shots Fired’ Reveals Racist Sheriff’s Department Behind Deaths of Unarmed Teens

Wednesday night’s episode of Fox’s race drama, Shots Fired, “Hour 4: Truth,” revealed some key pieces of evidence behind the death of unarmed black teen Joey Campbell: a racist white sheriff, a racist white lieutenant, and a racist, mostly white police department. Predictably, as it becomes more and more clear that the shooting death of white unarmed teenager Jesse Carr at the hands of black Deputy Beck (Tristan Wilds) was justified, DOJ Special Prosecutor Preston Terry (Stephan James) and Investigator Ashe Akino (Sanaa Lathan) have learned the truth behind the racially motivated murder and cover-up of black teen Joey Campbell at the hands of Gate Station’s corrupt and racist sheriff’s department. Apparently, a white officer shot the unarmed black teen as he laid on the ground crying for his mom.

BREAKING – North Korea Gearing Up to Test Nuclear Weapon This Weekend

North Korea may test a nuclear weapon on Saturday morning, according to U.S. government sources.

The Daily Caller reports:

The North has reportedly installed a nuclear device inside one of the tunnels at its Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site, reports Voice of America’s Steve Herman, citing government and other sources. A provocation is expected Saturday, but it could possibly come sooner.

Saturday is the “Day of the Sun,” the 105th anniversary of the birth of North Korean founder. This would be the North’s sixth nuclear test.

“We have no comment at this time, but we will be watching closely,” a National Security Council official told VOA.

White House Bureau chief, Steve Herman sent out a series of tweets with information about the nuclear test…

BREAKING=> Reporters in PyongYang Post Urgent Tweets: Told to Be Prepared to Move Out at 6:20 AM, No Phones Allowed

Journalists in Pyongyang have been ordered to evacuate the capital after being told to prepare for a big important event. Many are tweeting out that they have no idea what to expect, but that it is urgent.

Reuters:

SEOUL (Reuters) – Foreign journalists visiting North Korea have been told to prepare for a “big and important event” on Thursday, although there were no indications it was directly linked to tensions in the region over the isolated state’s nuclear weapons program.

Around 200 foreign journalists are in Pyongyang as the country marks the 105th birth anniversary of its founding president Kim Il Sung on April 15, North Korea’s biggest national day called “Day of the Sun”.

Several reporters are tweeting about the unusual warnings in the capital.

Nuclear Option: America at War, D.C. Establishment Delights

Trump Abandons Numerous Campaign Pledges

After getting out to a promising start in which the US President Donald Trump seemed serious about fulfilling campaign pledges, every day now seems to bring another broken campaign pledge from the White House. These broken promises are not limited to just the u-turn on Syria or Trump’s refusal to label China a currency manipulator.

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump is abandoning a number of his key campaign promises on economic policy, adopting instead many of the centrist positions he railed against while campaigning as a populist.

Trump will not label China a “currency manipulator,” he told the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, despite a campaign pledge that he would apply the label on his first day in office. He also said he was open to reappointing Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet L. Yellen after saying last year that the central banker should be “ashamed” of what she was doing to the country.

And he embraced the Export-Import Bank, a government agency that he mocked last year and that has long been despised by conservatives who labeled it crony capitalism.

The article then speaks of Trump’s betrayal on Syria and his abandonment of isolationism and an America First foreign policy.

Trump has also sharpened his criticism of Russia, a major break from the praise he lavished on Russian President Vladimir Putin during the campaign.

Also on Wednesday, Trump praised the work of NATO, a pact between the United States and some of its closest allies that Trump once called “obsolete.”

“It was once obsolete; it is no longer obsolete,” he said Wednesday after meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Trump’s changes are catching lawmakers, business executives, supporters, critics and even markets off guard. The U.S. dollar slumped and Treasury bond yields fell after the Wall Street Journal quoted Trump saying the dollar was too strong.

The rapid shuffle of priorities comes as he adopts a growing number of centrist policies, many of which the Obama administration tried to advance amid heated GOP opposition for years.

CNN reports on “Trump’s stunning u-turns on NATO, China, Russia and Syria”:

It was almost as if Donald Trump’s outsider presidential campaign never happened Wednesday as he rushed to embrace establishment political and national security positions he once publicly abhorred.

Within a few hours of extraordinary political shape-shifting, Trump abandoned stances that were at the bedrock of his establishment-bashing campaign. NATO, he said, is “no longer obsolete.” And he backed down a threat to brand China a currency manipulator.

The article then discusses his reversal of position on Syria, China and Federal Reserve Chairman (((Janet Yellen))).

It was not clear whether Trump’s sudden policy flips were the product of a new outlook and worldview. But previous presidents have often remarked that the world looks a lot different from the Oval Office than from a campaign rally.

It may not be a coincidence that Trump’s adoption of conventional political positions came the day after a stunning interview with the New York Post in which he publicly criticized his political guru Stephen Bannon, his insurgent, populist political conscience.

CNN notes that Trump has not yet abandoned his campaign pledge on immigration. But one has to wonder, given the mounting heap of broken pledges, if that is next.

This administration increasingly looks like a disaster. Trump appears to be the ultimate con.

CNN Ignores Guest Calling Bannon ‘Anti-Semite’; Once Likened Trump to Hitler

As The Root's Jason Johnson appeared as a panel member on Wednesday's New Day on CNN, the race-obsessed political analyst was true to form as he took his latest opportunity to trash White House advisor Steve Bannon, this time calling him an "anti-Semite" and someone who "sympathizes with white terrorist organizations," as he received no pushback from CNN hosts Alisyn Camerota or Chris Cuomo over his incendiary charges. It was also ironic that, as he appeared partly to discuss the controversy over White House press secretary Sean Spicer wrongly claiming that Adolf Hitler never used chemical weapons -- with Camerota commenting that "everyone gets in trouble" when they use Hitler analogies -- Johnson himself just over a year ago penned an article devoted to likening then-candidate Donald Trump to Germany's former Nazi dictator.

The Genocide at Vinnitsa

by Dr. William Pierce.

[…]

“Perhaps in 1937 and 1938 the bosses in the Kremlin simply thought that it was time to apply the lash to the Ukrainians again. In any event, the NKVD was given the task this time. The NKVD was even more Jewish than the rest of the Soviet communist apparatus. The commissar of the NKVD until September 1936 had been the Jew Genrikh Yagoda, and he had staffed his instrument of terror and repression with Jews at every level. And those who were not Jews were the worst sort of Russian and Ukrainian rabble, the resentful louts and ne’er-do-wells who saw in communism a way to get even with their betters. In any event, the Ukrainians were fully aware of the preponderance of Jews in the secret police, and they suspected that there was a Jewish angle to the pattern of arrests in 1937 and 1938. And indeed, it did seem as if the Talmudic injunction to “kill the best of the Gentiles” were being followed, for those who were arrested seemed to be the most solid, the steadiest, the most reliable and irreproachable of the Ukrainians.”

Russian Nuclear-Capable Bombers Sighted Near Japan

Well this is interesting:

For the first time in nearly three months, Russia flew nuclear-capable “Bear” bombers near Japan, Wednesday, the latest sign of increasing tensions in the region, two US officials tell Fox News.

The officials said three Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers took off from a base in eastern Russia flying in the Sea of Japan and remained in international airspace.

One U.S. official described the Russian bomber flight as “clearly meant to send a message.”

The Russian bombers came as close as 36 miles from Japan, but remained in international airspace.

Joining the three Russian long-range bombers was a IL-20 spy plane.

The three Russian Bear Bombers flew down Japan’s east coast, while a spy plane flew down the west coast, officials said.

A US Navy destroyer, the USS Barry, was also tracking the spy plane from the Sea of Japan.

This latest provocation from Russia comes as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visits Moscow, Wednesday, the first visit by a cabinet member to Russia since President Trump assumed office.

The Russian bombers took off Wednesday from an air base in Ukrainka in eastern Russia, home to one of Russia’s largest fleet of strategic bombers.

In late January, a pair of Russian bombers circumnavigated Japan for the first time in a year.

On July 4, 2015, Russian bombers flew 40 miles off the coast of California on the same day President Vladimir Putin called President Obama to wish him a happy Independence Day.

Breaking – Cartel Member Suspected in Murder of Border Patrol Agent Using ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Arrested

The cartel member suspected of shooting and killing Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in 2010 with a gun supplied by the U.S. government was arrested in Mexico Wednesday, senior law enforcement, Border Patrol, and congressional sources told Fox News

Photo of Agent Brian Terry, 40

Exclusive Via Fox News:

The suspect, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, was apprehended by a joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals and the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC).

A $250,000 reward had been sought for information leading to the arrest of Osorio-Arellanes, who was captured at a ranch on the border of the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua. U.S. authorities have said they will seek his extradition.

Terry was killed on Dec. 14, 2010 in a gunfight between Border Patrol agents and members of a five-man cartel “rip crew,” which regularly patrolled the desert along the U.S.-Mexico border looking for drug dealers to rob.

The agent’s death exposed Operation Fast and Furious, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) operation in which the federal government allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them once they made their way into Mexico. But the agency lost track of more than 1,400 of the 2,000 guns they allowed smugglers to buy. Two of those guns were found at the scene of Terry’s killing.

The operation set off a political firestorm, and then-Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress after he refused to divulge documents for a congressional investigation.

‘Fast and Furious’ was one of the countless scandals from the Obama administration which ultimately led to loss of American lives. There is still a man from the “rip crew,” Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga, who is believed to still be at large. In a sane world, Eric Holder would be held accountable for this scandal.

Judicial Watch Sues EPA Over 3rd Party Encryption App Use Against Trump (VIDEO)

Watchdog group, Judicial Watch is suing the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for communications sent or received by EPA officials who may have used the cell phone encryption application “Signal” to thwart government oversight and transparency.

Via Judicial Watch:

(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch today announced it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for communications sent or received by EPA officials who may have used the cell phone encryption application “Signal” to thwart government oversight and transparency.  The suit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v. Environmental Protection Agency (No. 1:17-cv-00533)).

  1. Any and all work-related communications sent to or from the following EPA officials using the app known as “Signal,” for the period February 3, 2016 to the present:
  • Administrator (or Acting);
  • Deputy Administrator (or Acting);
  • Assistant Administrator (or Acting), Office of Air and Radiation;
  • Assistant Administrator (or Acting), Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention;
  • Assistant Administrator (or Acting), Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance;
  • Assistant Administrator (or Acting), Office of Land and Emergency Management;
  • Assistant Administrator (or Acting), Office of International and Tribal Affairs; and
  • Chief Financial Officer (or Acting).
  1.   Any and all records requesting or approving the use of the messaging app known as “Signal” by any EPA personnel for official business.  The time frame for the requested records is July 1, 2014 to the present.

Interestingly, EPA employees began using the ‘Signal’ app shortly after Trump’s inauguration…

The use of Signal by EPA officials to prevent government oversight was reported in a February 2, 2017, Politico article entitled “Federal workers turn to encryption to thwart Trump.” According to the article:

Whether inside the Environmental Protection Agency, within the Foreign Service, on the edges of the Labor Department or beyond, employees are using new technology … to organize letters, talk strategy, or contact media outlets and other groups to express their dissent.

***

Fearing for their jobs, the employees began communicating incognito using the app Signal shortly after Trump’s inauguration.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton said the following:

“This new lawsuit could expose how the anti-Trump ‘deep state’ embedded in EPA is working to undermine the rule of law. Let’s hope the Trump administration enforces FOIA and turns over these records.  Given EPA’s checkered history on records retention and transparency, it is disturbing to see reports that career civil servants and appointed officials may now be attempting to use high-tech blocking devices to circumvent the Federal Records Act and the Freedom of Information Act altogether.”
