For this week’s archive radio show I reached all the way back to August of 2015 to revisit reality as it was. We document a success and a failure, we contemplate ‘honesty in politics’ (and how that sometimes comes from unusual sources), and then we feature Marvell Films in the Irony of the Week. We revisit history with the Toothless Old Grandpa’s very first Thunderbolt — wherein has a conversation with a privileged white yuppie about gentrification — and as if that weren’t bad enough, he then goes on to criticize the anti-abortion movement!

(Grandpa always did like to live dangerously…)

For the feature piece this week we reveal the all too hidden role that philanthropic foundations and NGO’s all too often play in the endless plots of the 0.1%.

All of the segments in this week’s News and Commentary section originally aired on August 21st, 2015. This was during very earliest stages of the presidential election — when Donald Trump was still one of ten or thirty Republicans running for president — and never being one to fail to toot my own horn — may I ask listeners to take note of how prophetic my observations concerning Donald Trump were at the time?

Yes, Kids — you know that you can always count on The Thunderbolt for the very finest in artisan cynicism!
This is a production of Dancing Angel Media. There is also a written version of The Thunderbolt at http://dana98501.wordpress.com/
