Unrest at Funeral in Israel, Primaries Today, Bird Flu Surge, Sussman Trial & the Steele Dossier
Congressional hearings today on UFOs. These are the first public hearings on what the Pentagon calls Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
Arnold August, Montreal-based journalist and author, member of the International Manifesto Group and The Global Gathering to Support the Resistance Option (Lebanon), Contributing Editor for The Canada Files, Collaborator with Press TV Iran joins the show to break down the latest developments in Ukraine. Then they talk about footage of the funeral procession of Shireen Abu Akleh being attacked by Israeli soldiers.
George Naylor, farmer, former president National Family Farm Coalition joins the show to talk about the recent outbreak of bird flu among chicken and wild turkeys. They talk about what it means that we’re seeing the disease in some wild groups for the first time like wild turkeys. And, what threat does that pose to wild bird populations, and is there anything that can be done to control it?
Dan Lazare, journalist and author joins the program to talk about the Sussman trial and the Steele Dossier. And, they talk about a feud that has erupted in public between President Joe Biden and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post.
Eugene Craig, Republican strategist, former vice-chair of the Maryland Republican Party and grassroots activist joins during the last segment. The Misfits talk about today’s primaries in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Idaho, and Oregon. Craig says that Republicans chasing a Trump endorsement to win during the primary season are going to lose in the general election. Republicans who are ultra MAGA will not appeal to more moderate Republicans during the general election.
The Misfits close with a conversation about car accidents. Nearly 43,000 people were killed on U.S. roads last year, the highest number in 16 years as Americans returned to the highways after the pandemic forced many to stay at home. The 10.5% jump over 2020 numbers was the largest percentage increase since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began its fatality data collection system in 1975.
