Another truncated show this week as Chatham Glenwood Titans Football will preempt much of the program. It's that time of year, where Saturday Session gets bumped for things like ... sports, and sports. In a few weeks, we'll have to put up with NFL playoffs preempting Saturday Session. Thanksfully WMAY stopped carrying NASCAR! That was torture.
Saturday Session may begin between 4:30 and 5p CST today, after the conclusion of week two of high school post-season football.
We'll pick up the conversation with Kent Bain about his book The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual. Kent's book is not an easy read as it deals with historical events and how there could be a link to occult symbology. Is it legit? You make the call. Listen to the entire interview with the Saturday Session Podcast then go get the book.
Tuesday's the day
Then we'll get into the issue of the elections and in particular have a much more grand conversation about the process. We won't focus on the trite left/right debate, or the "stark-contrast between the two candidates" conversation.
Voting is much bigger than the presidential race. Turnout will be dismal, the electorate will be poorly and, sadly, neglectfully miss-informed.
If you want to really be informed on some issues the establishment and mainstream wish you weren't informed on you should watch the debate between Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party Candidate Jill Stein. Read the blog "The Last Presidential Debate ... For Real" for more information.
Tonight, we'll hear in-depth about international election observers in the US. Read more about that here. You'll hear from a Sangamon County Election official, a Spokesperson from OSCE, the group sending the observers, and also an interview of Bishop on WHDT TV.
Should we be concerned that international observers are in this country monitoring elections, or should we be more concerned with the fact that we have miss-informed voters.
It's not about photo ID laws, or civic organizations registering people to vote in mass. It's really not even about which candidate is gonna give more money to Medicare or whether or not Obamacare will get repealed--it's about seeking out the right information to come up with a sincere and genuine decision, then acting upon that decision afterwards. Too often people vote and then go back to sleep. Can we say "anti-war left after Obama got elected" as an example? I remember in 2010 putting together a "Rally for Non-intervention" that was attended by candidates from the Green, Libertarian, and Constitution Parties, but where were the anti-war Obama supporters in that bunch. The turn out for the rainy day rally was low, but there was some great information (watch video of that rally: part 1, part 2, part 3).
We don't have enough informed voters. The system makes sure of that. We don't have different ideas and fresh candidates. The establishment makes sure of that. We don't have a fair and equal electoral process. The power holders make sure of that.
We have people that listen to purposefully-crafted partisan media that vote based on emotion and then don't follow up on their vote after the fact. Sad. We'll discuss it more on today's show.
That's all ahead with Saturday Session. Be sure to subscribe to Bishop's blog for the latest insights. You can also find Bishop battling trolls on Twitter, posting political art on Facebook or uploading videos on YouTube.
