Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded June 7th, 2023

It’s a beautiful June 6th as I write, and that makes it a good reason – if another was needed – to leave the teevee off tonight. For today is one of the War State’s High Holidays, and the Death Cult will celebrate, blasting out its myriad memes of glory for the 79 year-old, U.S.-led invasion of Nazi-occupied France over as many channels as it can muster. But some may find World War II sagas a trifle anti-climactic, as its sequel roils the nightly news, moving from storm to tempest, and prompting the weary observation, “What’s past is prologue.”

Nick Mottern is a journalist, author, and co-coordinator with Kathy Kelly of, an organization founded to “inform the American public about the illegality, immorality and dreadful human consequences of U.S. drone attacks…” .

Ban Killer Drones are calling for Ukraine and Russia to honour a moratorium proposed on the use of drones by numerous peace groups taking part this weekend at the International Summit for Peace in Ukraine.

Nick Mottern in the first half.

And; whenever the question of peace, or even an end to war is broached, invariably the Nazi qualifier is raised: “But what about Hitler? Aren’t there instances where good wars are necessary to defeat the forces of evil?”

If ever was a loaded concept…!

Mickey Z. is the author of Post-Woke, a weekly podcast emanating from his native New York City. He is too a past lecturer and political activist, current martial artist and physical trainer, author of a dozen books, and most importantly perhaps, a sensei in “the art of intellectual self-defense”.
A big part of that self-defense is discerning friend from foe, and knowing when you’re being led down the garden path. Mickey’s recent piece at PostWoke, ‘D-Day = Disinformation Day’ is the perfect primer to keep you out of the tangled weeds that are the Good War narrative.

But first, Nick Mottern and the fight to ban killer drones travels to Vienna for the International Summit for Peace in Ukraine.

Crack'd Actor: Guterres' Role in Misrepresenting Russia and Ukraine Crisis

The Food War, The Grain Deal, The Real Deal

By John Helmer, Moscow

June 5, 2023
The longest lasting of the false-flag operations conducted against Russia since the Special Military Operation started in February 2022 has been flying the flag of the United Nations (UN).

The chief flag-bearer has been the Secretary-General of the UN, Antonio Guterres, a Portuguese (lead image, left); he has manipulated, plotted, and lied his way through the Ukrainian hostage-taking at Azovstal, during the Battle of Mariupol;  the Ukrainian attacks on the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant; and Ukrainian attempts to break the ports blockade with what the UN has been calling its “Black Sea Grain Initiative”.

A call for Ukraine and Russia to honor a moratorium on weaponized drone attacks is being issued today by a delegation to the International Summit for Peace in Ukraine, organized by the International Peace Bureau (IPB) in Vienna on June 10-11.



“In view of the escalating drone attacks in the Russia-Ukraine war which introduce a new level of threat through the growing use of a technology that encourages inhuman and profoundly irresponsible behavior, we call on all involved in the Ukraine war to:


1.    Stop the use of all weaponized drones in the Russia-Ukraine war.


2.    Immediately negotiate a ceasefire and open negotiations to end the war.”

Listen. Hear.

That “war is a racket” no-one listening to this program more than once would doubt. But, just what kind of racket is the current conflagration roiling Ukraine; and just how many players – and how many games – are being run at the cost of the people doing the dying?

This week NATO kicked of its annual war games exercise, Arctic Challenge. The “exercise” is taking place in the “High North” and will, according to the U.S. Air Forces in Europe, and Air Forces Africa be an opportunity to “hone skills, fine-tune interoperability, nurture key relationships, and acclimate to the inherent challenges posed by fighting in the Arctic’s extreme conditions.”

Moscow has objected to what’s happening in the Barents Sea and over its neighbour countries, calling Arctic Challenge “illogical and harmful” and saying, “There are no issues in the North that require a military solution, nor issues that require outside intervention.”

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. The principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, Helmer has too been a professor of political science, sociology and journalism, and served as advisor to governments at the highest levels. Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Jackals’ Wedding: American Power, Arab Revolt’, ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’ and his latest, ‘Australian Fascism: How It Destroyed the Courts’.

Today, John Helmer and watching the war’s widening gyre.
