Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Ray McGinnis, Steve Poikonen February 14, 2024

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded February 14th, 2024

Listen. Hear.

And Happy St. Valentine’s Day to all you lovers out there. Well nearly as synonymous as hearts, chocolates, and flowers this date is too remembered for the massacre of the North Side Gang 95 years ago. Further north in Canada, we remember February 14th as the day the hit was put on the country’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. But whereas Al Capone was never fingered for knocking off seven of Bugs Moran’s goons in Chicago in 1929, we know exactly who iced democracy in Ottawa in 2022.

Ray McGinnis is a senior fellow with the Frontier Centre for Public Policy. His forthcoming book is Unjustified: The Emergencies Act and the Inquiry That Got It Wrong. It’s a chronicle of the government’s abuse of its near unlimited power over the citizenry, ostensibly in reaction to the Trucker’s Freedom Convoy. Ray’s articles appear at Propaganda in Focus and Troy Media, among other places, where I found his recent piece, ‘Court Ruling Justly Slams Trudeau’s Use of Emergency Act’, and his late breaking, ‘Two of the Coutts Four Released in a Shocking Twist in the Case’.

Ray McGinnis in the first half.

And; Tuesday, February 20th Julian Assange is scheduled to be in court. Approaching the fifth anniversary of Assange’s detention in London’s maximum security Belmarsh Prison, lawyers for the World’s most famous political prisoner are preparing for the journalist and publisher’s final appeal of the High Court’s favourable ruling on the U.S. extradition petition.
Steve Poikonen co-hosts Slow News Day on Rokfin, and “The Best Damn Morning Show on the Interwebs” AM WakeUp on Rumble. He’s been in the trenches and gone to the streets for Assange’s release in the USA, trying to spark his fellow Americans to action in the defense of justice.

Steve Poikonen and Assange’s last stand for British justice in the second half.

But first, Ray McGinnis and the Trudeau claque taking the “Emergency” axe to Canadian rights and freedoms.
