Alex takes on the full spectrum of attacks facing society. From new wars, a domestic clampdown, the on-going economic crisis and the bombardment of food, water and environment with dangerous chemical compounds, humanity is under attack.

Alex also talks about a proposed New Jersey ban on ammunition, a de facto circumvention of the Bill of Rights’ guarantee to the right to bear arms. The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) culture of lying is also in focus, with the recent release of Infowars’ viral video TSA: The Greatest Liars on Earth.

In other news, police fire tear gas and rubber bullets on Occupy Oakland protesters while the former Federal Reserve boss Herman Cain seeks to deliver his Tea Party supporters to the Newt Gingrich presidential campaign. The ACTA bill, like the SOPA and PIPA acts, threaten the future of Internet freedom. This and more, along with your calls.
