This week’s show starts off by exposing the Devil’s bargain that everyone must strike in order to live in our society. We then describe a CIA asset who is currently living in Pennsylvania that has Turkey’s snit it a tizzy. We describe idiot child liberals who think that James Comey is a good guy just because he stood up to the Rump. We describe the difference between fiction and reality (i.e. fiction must be believable whilst reality does not suffer that restriction), we describe the reality of Reality, and we describe the Rump’s habit of making major policy decisions with his eyes wide shut. We wax dialectical about the police — and for the feature piece this week we describe a new gene-editing technology called ‘CRISPR’ that makes genetic engineering tools available to the ‘common man’.

Crazy stuff this week. Together we travel an enigmatic yet educational path.
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at
