FREEDOM 101 – Jason Hirthler and Jeff Brown share their stories of hope, on China Rising Radio Sinoland

The buck stops with YOU. If you don’t share this, who will?

Downloadable SoundCloud podcast (also at the bottom of this page), as well as being syndicated on iTunes and Stitcher Radio(links below):

[dropcap]P[/dropcap]ictured above is Jason Hirthler on the left, in New York and myself on the right, in China. We are twelve time zones apart, geographically halfway around the planet from each other. Yet, we have both succeeded in coming out of the anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist closet, continue to work at normal jobs and have friends and family who respect us. We empathize with you that it may seem like mission impossible. We too face the foghorn of withering Western propaganda, with its relentless societal pressure to conform and be a mindless Myrmidon in the mainstream matrix. But, it can be done.


That’s you on the left and the elites’ mainstream media on the right. There’s only one solution: quit watching, listening to and reading their brainwashing propaganda. It’s like a bad drug that makes you stupid and babble. I know, because I used to be a muttering idiot myself. Then, get smart and find your freedom elsewhere in the information world. Read on…

In today’s discussion, you can see by the long list of tag words that Jason and I covered a lot of fascinating and interesting territory. Listen to our stories about how we gained our freedom and dignity, so you too can find the will to liberate your innate intelligence and the courage to unshackle your powers of reason. Regardless of your age, it is never too late. Jason figured it out in his forties, me in my late fifties. Everyone has their own unique life experiences through which to take their journeys of discovery and enlightenment. And there is a critical bonus. It gives you the knowledge and satisfaction of not living the rest of your life as an imperial ventriloquist dummy. That in itself is priceless.

1950’s British ventriloquist Peter Bough on the right and his dummy Archie Andrews, on the left. They are playing the perfect allegory of the West’s deep state and its manipulated masses, respectively. That’s also me on the left, until I was about 58 years old, when I took my life-changing journey across China, in 44 Days (https://ganxy.com/i/88276/). You too can choose to not be Archie Andrews. Read on…

The French have a wonderful proverb, A clear conscience makes a soft pillow. Jason and I both took our separate paths to get there, but we can finally say we sleep soundly at night. You, us, we all deserve the sweet dreams of self-respect.

Jason’s résumé is impressive. He is a writer, media critic, and veteran of the digital communications industry. As a digital media strategist, he is familiar with the techniques and tactics commonly used by mainstream news media to shape narratives that disguise imperialism. He is interested in the false historical narratives that underpin the foreign policies of the United States and which ensure those policies are only feebly resisted. To that end, Hirthler has published more than 150 articles across a variety of progressive sites like CounterpunchDissident Voice, and The Greanville Post. He has also authored two collections of his political essays, The Sins of Empire, and most recently, Imperial Fictions. He lives in New York City and can be reached at jasonhirthler@gmail.com.

Friends and fans of China Rising Radio Sinoland, it’s time to get smart, and to gain your freedom and dignity from our parasitic elite owners. They may own the system, but they can’t control your brains, once you make the decision to cross the Rubicon and into the realm of clarity and truth.

So, just do itAnd when you are ready to celebrate leaving the matrix, send Jason and me an email (jasonhirthler@gmail.comand jeff@brownlanglois.com). We’d love to hear your stories of redemption and newfound liberty.

NYC Metro Area Wildlife Experts Pushing Bear Meat Consumption To Control Population



News | CBS New York October 13, 2014
Guilty for living. Local bears found to be a “nuisance”. The sentence is death.

“Too many bears,” proclaim the media, brainlessly echoing the hunting fraternity and State Wildlife Departments assertions in the tristate area (NY/CT/NJ).  Thus a pogrom on bears is being promoted shamelessly by the local press. Who are “the unnamed experts”? 

It’s not enough that we kill and eat them by the billions, with nary an acknowledgement or protest. Now the usual ethical idiots are pushing to declare open season on bears in the NYC metro area.  Once again. The excuse is “overpopulation.” Also a shopworn excuse.

Never mind that, as anyone with minimum knowledge of such things is aware, the longstanding practice of “managing wildlife” for the pleasure of hunters, and the unrelenting encroachment of wildlife areas by humans upsets the balance of nature, and is forcing many animals into more frequent encounters with our species. And guess who will lose. Humans are the most dangerous, brutal species this planet has ever seen or is likely to see.

It’s really hard to tell where the massive ignorance of these so-called journalists begins and where their sheer callousness toward animal life ends, but it ought to be a crime to hand over a tv station, whole networks, to such moral imbeciles. Which they demonstrably are: from the producers, who largely hide their names, to the remote top brass who pull the strings and sets the overall tone for everything that transpires throughout their media fiefdoms.

The end result is disgusting enough, but hardly unusual. Thus, as readers can see in this report, matter of factly, and without an ounce of self-consciousness about promoting yet another massacre of wildlife, and showing overflowing speciesism, these media morons go about their business of misinforming the public. Note they do not mention “the experts” suggesting these “solutions,” but we know who they are—the pro-hunting organizations and their allies in all forms of wildlife persecution, the innocuously named State Department of Wildlife officials, who in most states are little but  concubines for the hunting fraternity, and the ever-present ranching and gun interests. So watch, comment and protest. And puke, if you have to. —PG

• CBS Corporation is controlled by Sumner Redstone through National Amusements, its parent. Redstone is an old corporate vulture and conglomerateur speculator.

Another major player is Leslie Moonves, President and Chief Executive Officer of CBS Corporation. Moonves is the perfect blend of an utterly corrupt Hollywood culture, the television medium and the business mentality of advanced capitalism.

None of these guys, as could be expected, are “men of the people.” Nor do they care much for animals or the environment. Their attention to such topics is erratic at best.
Moonves alone packed almost $70 million in compensation in 2009. CBS, like the rest of the US television networks, tacks center-right to ultra-right in its politics, marches in lockstep with an aggressive imperialism (reflected in the network’s many idealizations of the police and military, and more recently in the disgusting selling of a thinly-veiled Hillary Clintonesque “Madam Secretary” series) and a severely deficient domestic news coverage. CBS however is far smoother in its poison delivery than the far cruder Fox network.

Area Wildlife Experts Pushing Bear Meat Consumption To Control Population

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – That nuisance bear in your backyard could soon end up on a dinner table. Wildlife experts say if people could learn to love the taste of bear, it could help solve a big problem. “Bear is delicious. Bear chops on the bone, bear cutlets; bear sausage is excellent,” said wild game butcher Anthony Deserto. As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, wildlife officials in New York and New Jersey are singing the praises of bear meat in an effort to get more hunters into the woods. Deserto said the rich, red meat would seem familiar on most American tables. “It’s more like pork. It takes a lot longer to cook and it’s a little fattier than beef,” said Alice Deserto, who is also a wild game butcher. Don Hippler, of Sloatsburg, said more than a dozen bears have come through his taxidermy shop recently. He kept the skins but the meat went to the butcher. “The backstraps are better. The hinds are better. The front shoulders, the necks, that’s chop meat,” he said. Opponents to bear hunting are not enthusiastic about the concept as a means of population control. Susan Russell, of New Jersey’s Animal Protection League, warns that humans in bear populated areas need to secure trash and food sources. “The central focus needs to be on human behavior,” she warned. Some humans though, can’t stop thinking about another kind of food. “I like bear ribs just like spare ribs like you get at the Chinese restaurant. I love bear ribs and I love bear sausage,” said Bob Vitro, of Tru-Life Taxidermy. New York just wrapped up an early bear season and New Jersey’s is set for December. Most of the bears killed in the Tri-State area weigh betwen 160 and 200 pounds, but some are much bigger. Because bears are omnivores, experts say bear meat should be cooked well.
