Listen. Hear.

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded February 17th and 21st, 2024

Despite his death in prison yesterday, Russian “democracy activist”, Alexei Navalny will continue to serve his Western masters in their effort to unseat Vladimir Putin’s government. Since the news broke, the Free Press has inundated the cybersphere, airwaves, and teevees of Europe and America with extollations of the man’s courage and journalistic integrity with testimonials coming from them in high places; those same silent on the bitter fate of Julian Assange, long dying but not dead yet in a British dungeon.

Would it be too soon unkind to remind, Navalny cosseted neo-fascists; was a performative if not demonstrable racist, and an asset of the CIA and MI6? Yes, the only thing worse than living in prison perhaps is dying there, and few deserve that, so rest in peace Alexei, if you can find it.

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. Principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, Helmer has too been a professor of political science, sociology, and journalism, and has served as advisor to governments at the highest levels.
Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’, ‘SOVCOMPLOT: How Pirates Tried to Capture the Treasure of the Russian Seas, and Were Caught Out’, and his lately released autobiography, ‘Dunce Upon a Time: A Life of Mistakes’. Helmer has also written voluminously on Navalny; his activities, methods, goals and sponsors.

John Helmer in the first half.

And; Canadians largely still believe, despite clear and present evidence of complicity in coups, occupations, and conspiracies to profit from the misery foisted upon anonymous others in foreign lands, that “we” constitute a force for good in the world.

This is perhaps nowhere more evident than in Palestine, where successive Canadian governments maintain vociferous and bipartisan support of the state of Israel, even while paying lip service to the unmet humanitarian needs of the captive populations of Gaza, Jerusalem, and the West Bank.

Mazin Al Nahawi is a Palestinian refugee from Safad, occupied Palestine. He’s a graduate of the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts – Criticism Department, Damascus, Syria where he too studied Arab Linguistics, Mazin now lives here in Victoria, land that is the traditional territory of the Lkwungen, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.

Mazin Al Nahawi and the fight for Palestine on two home fronts in the second half.

But first, John Helmer and the use of Alexei Navalny in life, and afterwords.

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded December 2nd and 3rd, 2023.

Listen at GR’s Substack site here.

On November 16th, Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau received a “notice of intention to seek prosecution by the International Criminal Court”. Trudeau is one of four Canadian government officials cited in the notice for their complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the state of Israel since the commencement of its bombardment of Gaza on October 7th.

The notice, issued by the UK-based, International Centre of Justice for Palestinians and acted upon by its Canadian associates in the Legal Working Group for Canadian Accountability under the principles of Universal Jurisdiction is supported, the ICJP maintains by, “…Canada’s support of Israel’s armed forces where there is demonstrable evidence that international crimes may have already been committed, and when there is clear evidence that further crimes against civilians will imminently be perpetrated.

Dimitri Lascaris is a Montreal-based activist, journalist, and lawyer. He served as Justice Critic in the Shadow Cabinet of the Green Party of Canada and likewise for the Green Party of Quebec. Dimitri’s interviews for TRNN are available at TheRealNews.com, and his articles appear at various sites online, including his website, DimitriLascaris.org.

Dimitri Lascaris in the first half.

And; in addition to the war crimes being committed in Gaza by Israel, as noted by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk; namely, “The collective punishment by Israel of Palestinian civilians… [and] … unlawful forcible evacuation of civilians.” there is too the matter of the material manner in which Israel’s crimes are being committed. Specifically, the “materiel” allegedly being used by its military, that in themselves constitute crimes.

Israel has proven its willingness to use internationally banned weapons like white phosphorous in Gaza in past attacks – and photographic evidence reveals it is doing so now – but what of the generationally destructive depleted uranium?

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. Principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, Helmer has too been a professor of political science, sociology, and journalism, and served as advisor to governments at the highest levels.

Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Jackals’ Wedding: American Power, Arab Revolt’, ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’, ‘SOVCOMPLOT: How Pirates Tried to Capture the Treasure of the Russian Seas, and Were Caught Out’, and his lately released autobiography, ‘Dunce Upon a Time: A Life of Mistakes’.

John’s latest article at Dances with Bears is, ‘BIOCHEMICAL WEAPON FOR RACE WAR — URANIUM WARHEAD POISONING IS THE SPECIALTY OF U.S. AGAINST RUSSIANS, ISRAEL AGAINST PALESTINIANS‘.

John Helmer and is Israel waging an everlasting genotoxic war against Palestine? in the second half.

Having watched the incremental disintegration of Western Civilizations, such as it was, over the last forty and something years, it still comes as a surprise to witness the depravity, viciousness, and yes, banality of the evil now run rampant. And this is without regarding the unspeakable Israel – enacting a literal genocide even now, every moment – but the revelation of the West’s moral bankruptcy Israel’s ultimate crime illustrates.

Certainly the blame for the killing of Gaza is on the governments and institutions of America, Europe, the NATO nations – Canada, the rest of the Anglo-American Alliance, and their satraps around the World – but the blood of innocents stains our hands too; we the people who allowed this happen, and allow it continue.

So, now what are you and I and we to do?

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded October 18, 2023

Not content with just aiding and abetting the ruination of countries on the other side of the World, Canada has announced its intention of doing likewise in the western hemisphere’s most benighted nation, Haiti. In many ways, it’s really just more of the same for the Great White North, which has meddled in and actively undermined any and every prospect for independence and prosperity there.

The latest iteration of Canada’s determination to help Haiti was delivered by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Melanie Joly, who on top of sanctions already in place, and allocations of millions of dollars to the Haitian National Police, voiced her support for the United Nations decision to again intervene militarily in Haiti saying, “Canada has always been involved in issues related to Haiti. We will continue to be… We want to do more.” What “more” means may be revealed during this week’s Canada-CARICOM Summit, started in Ottawa this morning.

Yves Engler is an independent, Montreal-based journalist, activist, and author. He’s written twelve books on Canadian foreign policy, including ‘Canada in Haiti: Waging War on the Poor Majority’, co-authored with Anthony Fenton. Yves hosts the Canadian Foreign Policy Hour online every Monday at 6pm eastern time.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, John Helmer Gaza Special October 8, 2023

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded October 8th, 2023.

Yesterday’s attacks emanating from the Gaza Strip against Israeli military installations and soldiers, and raids on the towns and citizens adjacent the separation wall and deeper into Israel is all that is news today. Already, mass casualty bombing raids have killed hundreds of civilians in the Gaza Strip. Meanwhile, in what can only be described as an announcement of war crimes to come, prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu said civilians in Gaza – widely acknowledged as less a place where people live than an “open air prison” – should “leave the Gaza Strip” where, he promises, terrible and widespread attacks will kill many more.

Netanyahu’s admission of intentions to commit mass atrocities accompanies his declaration of war, and the imposition of conditions of war within Israel. This is a God-sent distraction from the prime minister’s severe political troubles, seeing a full year of massive public protests against his constitutional changes to the country’s judiciary – amendments his critics charge undermine Israeli democracy.

A new foreign war must come as a welcome distraction for the Americans, who will use it to reset media messaging away from the Ukraine debacle, even as its EU ally hope to sweep under its collective carpet the problem of growingly restive home populations. Meanwhile, none could be happier for a change of media focus than Canada’s hapless Liberal party government, seeing its recent Parliamentary Nazi feting embarrassment overshadowed.

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. Principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, Helmer has too been a professor of political science, sociology, and journalism, and served as advisor to governments at the highest levels.
Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Jackals’ Wedding: American Power, Arab Revolt’, ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’, ‘Australian Fascism: How It Destroyed the Courts’, and his latest, still steaming hot of the presses, ‘SOVCOMPLOT: How Pirates Tried to Capture the Treasure of the Russian Seas, and Were Caught Out’.

John’s latest articles at Dances with Bears, ‘NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY – POLAND IS AFRAID TO UPSET THE NATO WAR AGAINST RUSSIA BY PROSECUTING YAROSLAV HUNKA’ and ‘CANADA AND THE NATO ALLIANCE HUNKER DOWN TO DEFEND RACE WAR AGAINST RUSSIA — THE NEW EVIDENCE’ highlight the historical horrors behind that Canadian embarrassment.

Today, John Helmer and racing to keep up with the West’s rehabilitation of Nazism, and the Hamas lightning war in Gaza.

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded September 13th, 2023.

As the Ukraine front of the West’s war against Russia continues its collapse – by all accounts, save Zelenskyy’s – the battle to defeat the recalcitrant energy giant continues. Not content with attaching bank accounts and confiscating airplanes, agents of the West have taken too to piracy, seizing oil-laden Russian registered tankers on the high seas. But even that age-old tactic of America’s maritime empire and its English predecessor pales beside the backroom buccaneering being employed to wrest from Russia the richest prize, the World’s greatest tanker fleet.

John Helmer in the first half.

And; America has been at war with Russia much longer than most people today appreciate. In 1944, though allies in the fight against the Axis Powers, the United States planned, after Hitler’s fall, to turn its super secret super-weapon the A-bomb on its “friend” the Soviet Union, killing tens of millions of its people, and crippling its society. The plan was to send Russia back to the Stone Age.

And the plan may have succeeded but for the Soviet’s miraculous development of its own super weapon, promising any such action against it would provoke a mutual response. Mutually Assured Destruction, the MAD Doctrine, has hung over the heads of us all at varying degrees of imminent catastrophe ever since.

But, how did the Soviets manage their miracle of atomic deterrence?

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded July 26th, 2023.

The escalation of the Ukraine war is quickly morphing, becoming more international in character. Over the weekend, Russia’s President Putin warned Poland against sending troops into western Ukraine, informing the UN’s Security Council he was aware of “plans to establish some sort of so-called Polish-Lithuanian-Ukrainian unit.”

Poland reacted by denouncing Putin’s speech as a threat, and summoning the Russian ambassador in protest. As both Poland and Lithuania are NATO member countries, the greatest fear must be of this heightened belligerence leading to military engagement that could trigger NATO’s Article 5 mutual defense clause.

Will Canada Ever Seem the Same? Ape Talks to War of the Worlds

BREAKING NEWS FROM THE DONBASS FRONT, THE TEIXEIRA CASE, AND THEN FROM CANADA — WHAT HAPPENS TO THE OTTAWA REGIME WHEN THE KIEV REGIME IS DEFEATED

Listen. Hear. Entire Episode Here.

[Was pleased to chat with War of the World Warriors John Helmer and George Eliason on their TNT Radio program the other night. Here’s the short version linked below the show’s text. – Ape]

In the second and third segments of the broadcast, Chris Cook discusses the history of his Gorilla Radio, the leading truth radio in Canada. Originating in Victoria , capital of the province of British Columbia, listen to Gorilla Radio’s latest programmes here  and follow the blog.

Since October, Gorilla Radio has been banned from broadcasting by Radio CFUV 101.9 FM at the University of  Victoria; Simon Fraser University in neighbouring Vancouver continues to broadcast every Monday morning at Radio CJSF 90.1 FM.    The Gorilla Radio transcripts are published on the blog.

For Chris Cook’s broadcast archive, click to open.

During the discussion the sharp contrast was drawn in the history of Canada’s relations with Russia between the classical pianist Glenn Gould (1932-82) and the likes of Ukrainian-Canadian Chrystia Freeland, deputy prime minister. Between 1956 and 1957 Canadian officials had reservations about allowing Gould to make the first Canadian cultural tour of the Soviet Union with piano performances in Moscow and Leningrad.  This film documentary records anxiety in Ottawa that the US government was opposed. Lester Pearson was Canada’s Minister for External Affairs at the time when the US was imposing sanctions following the Soviet Army intervention in Hungary.

Watch this film, Gould’s Moscow and Leningrad performances, and the recollections of Canadians and Russians looking back.

“The impression [in Moscow] was that he was from Mars. An
Alien” – Min 15:28. “Now forty-four years later [from the Leningrad
concert] I absolutely believe he was an alien. Glenn Gould was a visitor
on this earth. People cannot play the piano like that, I can assure
you” – Min 30. Source: https://www.youtube.com/

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded April 12th, 2023.

Yesterday, the Prime Minister’s office announced “more support for Ukraine”. Goodhearted Canadians concerned about the well-being of that country and its citizens will be disappointed however to discover just what “support” in the parlance of Ottawa’s current rulers translates as. In bullet points, it means:

⦁ Tens of thousands of weapons
⦁ Millions of rounds of ammunition
⦁ And the unaccountable “dispersal” of more billions of Canadian dollars to the Kyiv regime

In simpler terms, the Liberal government is guaranteeing more war and more destruction in Ukraine for the months – and perhaps years – to come even as it wages a sanctions war against the only party that can stop the war; Russia. Some “support”!

And, if the Ottawa weather vane Globe & Mail is any indication, its chief political scribe, Steven Chase’s recent article headed, ‘Pro-Kremlin Twitter Accounts ‘Weaponizing’ Fringe Users to Erode Canadians’ Support for Ukraine, study finds’ signals a new Canadian understanding of citizenship with an unmistakably McCarthyite ring.

Goodhearted Canadians concerned about the well-being of that country and its citizens will be disappointed however to discover just what “support” in the parlance of Ottawa’s current rulers translates as. In bullet points, it means:

⦁ Tens of thousands of weapons
⦁ Millions of rounds of ammunition
⦁ And the unaccountable “dispersal” of more billions of Canadian dollars to the Kyiv regime

In simpler terms, the Liberal government is guaranteeing more war and more destruction in Ukraine for the months – and perhaps years – to come even as it wages a sanctions war against the only party that can stop the war; Russia. Some “support”.

Ken Stone is an executive member of both the Syria Support Movement International and Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War. Ken and the Coalition are pleased, they say, to participate this month in kicking off the Canadian tour of “Sanctions: A Wrecking Ball in a Global Economy.”

And; if the Ottawa weather vane Globe & Mail is any indication, its chief political scribe, Steven Chase’s recent article headed, ‘Pro-Kremlin Twitter Accounts ‘Weaponizing’ Fringe Users to Erode Canadians’ Support for Ukraine, study finds’ signals a new Canadian understanding of citizenship with an unmistakable McCarthyite overtone.

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. The principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, Helmer has too been a professor of political science, sociology and journalism, and served as advisor to governments at the highest levels. Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Jackals’ Wedding: American Power, Arab Revolt’, ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’ and his latest, ‘Australian Fascism: How It Destroyed the Courts,’.

But first, Ken Stone and fighting Canada’s Sanction Warriors.
