Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded July 5th, 2023


Listen. Hear.

Any day now could be the new “date that will live in infamy”, as ominous hints at an attack against the Russian-held nuclear plant at Zaporizhzhia are being floated in the world presses. Both the Kyiv government and its American sponsor have filtered information into the media mainstream suggesting Russia will, as it did with the Nord Stream pipelines and Kakhovka Dam, sacrifice its own infrastructure in a false flag attempt to make Ukraine look bad.

The conflict has already gone nuclear, in a sense, with both documented missile and mortar attacks against Zaporizhzhia, and the introduction of Depleted Uranium munitions. So it seems, after nearly 80 years of an uneasy atomic detente, the thing most feared by generations past has begun, if in an unexpected way.

Dave Lindorff is an American publisher, Izzy Award-winning investigative journalist, author, founder of the web news site, This Can’t Be, and documentary producer whose now released film, ‘A Compassionate Spy‘ tells the tale of Ted Hall, wunderkind physicist and spy who may well have saved Russia and the World from nuclear conflagration.

Lindorff’s also written a companion book for the film called, ‘Spy for No Country’ due out in November.

And; among those that know, right now is the most dangerous moment the world has ever known. More than Ronald Reagan’s “reign of error”, where the pitch of western belligerence against the Soviet Union pinned the needle, the current slide into the big muddy of nuclear Armageddon is beginning to seem a grotesque inevitability. But, there was a precedent matching the horror of our moment. John Kennedy’s retreat from the brink during the Cuban Missile Crisis is a fragile beacon of hope for our survival, and fittingly it is being seized upon by JFK’s nephew, Robert F. Kennedy in his bid for the Democratic Party nomination for president.

Jim Kavanagh’s a former college professor, now publishing political and social analysis as The Polemicist on Substack, and making videos on the same topics at Rumble. His articles appear online at, among other places, The Greanville Post and, where his recent article, ‘RFK, Jr.’s Chances‘ appears.

Jim Kavanagh and Is Another Kennedy Enough? in the second half.

But first, Dave Lindorff and the whistleblower who saved the world – for a while.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, John Stauber, John Helmer June 28th, 2023

This Week on GR

June 28, 2023
Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded June 28th, 2023

Does the news of the day seem more to you like a Hollywood movie than a real picture of the state of the World? Could Bondian billionaire villains, really be vying for not only control of the planet’s governments and resources, but also for the very hearts, minds, and souls of We the People? And how could this all be happening before our eyes while the majority of us are unaware that everything we’ve known is slipping away?

John Stauber is an independent writer, activist and author. His books include: ‘Toxic Sludge Is Good for You’, ‘Trust Us, We’re Experts’, and ‘Weapons of Mass Deception’. He’s also been a long-time political and media activist who spent a career exposing corporate, political, and media propaganda campaigns.

And; last week witnessed a media circus hardly equaled in this century. It’s all surrounding the march on Moscow of the contract mercenary Wagner Group, and even now pundits and Russia experts are struggling to make sense of what – were he running a midway food truck today – Churchill might describe as a riddle-wrapped mystery meat sandwich, served up in a hot enigma sauce.

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. 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’.

John’s been following the astonishing events within Russia over the last week, and provides some context in the second half.

But first, John Stauber and revealing America’s hardly visible oligarchy.
