Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange – Ep 40

Read

Being a whistleblower is a difficult path, one that only a few choose to follow.  Chelsea Manning is one of those people, but the pain of her choice continues to haunt her in horrifying ways.  Here, we discuss Chelsea Manning’s jailtime over her refusal to testify in a grand jury proceeding related to Julian Assange.  We also discuss Assange’s recent loss of asylum by the Ecuadorian embassy and arrest by UK authorities.

Hawk on terror and dove on regime change – what could go wrong? – Ep 34

Read

Today is a politics day at Fortress On A Hill.  The guys and I seldom spend THIS much time discussing the political background of anyone, much else future Democratic presidential candidates.    Here, we dig into Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, and Tulsi Gabbbard; we’ll cover others like Kamala Harris in a later episode. We will continue to do this as more candidates announce; the compare and contrast of the group is quite important for understanding how American foreign policy might play out in a future Democratic administration.

MeToo when you wear the uniform – Sexual assault in the military – Ep 4.0

Ep 4 is here.  Hope you enjoy it.

I did want to make a note for people about SGT Johnson, the SF soldier who died in Niger back in October.  I said his name a number of times in this episode and I’m pretty sure most of them were SGT La Johnson.  His name is SGT La David Johnson and I apologize for not saying his name correctly.  I have memory issues and sometimes things don’t get out quite right.  But, a person’s name is an important thing and I aim to do it right.

We are starting a bonus program for anyone contributing to $3+ to us on Patreon!  There will be bonus podcast content not shown on ordinary episodes, original writings from Danny and myself, some collaborations with other creators and some other surprises we have cooked up.  Stay tuned!
