A taxicab driver in the UK was falsely accused of rape this week. After being thrown into a jail cell, the man was finally vindicated when he presented evidence on his phone proving that he was innocent. Though many rail against the surveillance state, private surveillance is a useful tool for providing an objective record of your innocence. The cabbie knew his CCTV was broken that evening, and so he switched on an audio recorder on his phone. That was enough to prove that Astria Berwick was a passenger like any other — simply rode in the cab and went on her way. But after the ride, Astria called police and told them that she had been the victim of a serious sexual assault inside Asif’s cab. It was a complete lie.

Now thanks to the objective record held by Asif’s phone, Astria’s lie is exposed. She now sits behind bars on a sentence of 16 months for a charge of perverting the course of justice.

As Ramadan begins, 120 hunger-strikers in Guantánamo Bay continue their protest. More than 40 of them are being force-fed. A leaked document sets out the military instructions, or standard operating procedure, for force-feeding detainees. In a four-minute film made by Human Rights organisation Reprieve and Bafta, award-winning director Asif Kapadia, US actor and rapper Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def), experiences the procedure first-hand.


What is happening in Guantanamo Bay is hidden from public view. There are people who, for months, have been dressing up in American soldier uniforms, strapping down innocent people to chairs, and forcing baby formula into their stomachs through tubes inserted into their noses.


Nobody likes to see what is happening in Guantanamo. But if the public refuses to look at what’s happening, then it will continue.


Most of the men remaining at Guantanamo have been cleared for release from the detention center not only by the Obama Administration but also by the Bush Administration years ago! They are wholly innocent both in reality and in the eyes of the government, however the government continues for years to torture their bodies in a secretive facility outside of US soil.


I encourage listeners of this program to get creative and produce media highlighting the abuses of Guantanamo Bay and challenging others to face the reality of what’s happening there. It’s good to focus on the positive, but noncooperation with evil is as much a responsibility as cooperation with good. Do your part to withhold your support for torturers.



One way to withdraw your support for the US Government is to stop using its money. Visit to try bitcoin instead.

Intellihub reports that Psilocybin Mushrooms Promote Growth of New Brain Cells, and can Even Cure PTSD And Depression, according to a recent study by the University of South Florida.


Dr. Juan Sanchez-Ramos, who co-author of the study, exclaimed of his lab mice, “They simply lost their fear.”

Much more research could be done by ordinary people and professors alike, if governments around the world weren’t at war with peaceful drug users. Psilocybin mushrooms are illegal in the United States, and other countries. Scientists are eager to look into the idea of using Psilocybin Mushrooms to cure (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), chronic depression, and a wide range of other mental and physical ailments, but doing so would require disobeying agents of the state. These mushrooms are harmless, cannot cause overdose, and unlike disobedience to the state, cannot cause death.
