    Mike Prysner Of 'Empire Files' On Red Hill Leaks And US Navy Poisoning Water In Hawaii

    Mike Prysner Of 'Empire Files' On Red Hill Leaks And US Navy Poisoning Water In Hawaii

    For the last episode of 2021, Mike Prysner, a producer for "Empire Files," joins Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola to share his reporting on the Red Hill fuel leaks at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii.   

    Fuel tanks once again leaked petroleum and threatened the water supply of surrounding communities. The leaks poisoned military and non-military people, who rely on the same water. It is a problem that goes back decades and has likely resulted in hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel leaking into the water since World War II.   

    Mike describes meeting with people impacted by the pollution and what indigenous communities are doing to fight back. He outlines the lies the U.S. Navy are telling Hawaiians and why they think they can get away with not shutting down the tanks, as even city officials in Honolulu are demanding.   

    Later in the show, Mike comments on U.S. sanctions in Afghanistan and links it back to the suffering unfolding in communities nearby by the Pearl Harbor-Hickam military base.

    Thank you for supporting the Unauthorized Disclosure weekly podcast.

    Rania Khalek was in Ethiopia with a Breakthrough News team, and we look forward to bringing you an episode in the next week or so that digs into what she witnessed and uncovered about the conflict and violence and destruction by the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF).

    But we still wanted you to have an episode so this week Kevin Gosztola highlights some of Rania's reporting that she managed to share. He also shares some of his commentary on the British High Court decision, which granted the US government's appeal and moved WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange closer to extradition.

    Zoe Alexandra On Honduras Election and Struggle To End US-Backed 'Narcodictatorship'

    Zoe Alexandra On Honduras Election and Struggle To End US-Backed 'Narcodictatorship'

    ***Thank you for listening to this free version of the "Unauthorized Disclosure" weekly podcast hosted by Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola.***  

    Zoe Alexandra, a journalist with People's Dispatch, joins the show to discuss the election in Honduras, where left-wing presidential campaign of Xiomara Castro triumphed at the polls.  

    Going back to 2009, the United States backed a coup that forced President Manuel Zelaya out of power.
    The U.S. backed a fraudulent election in 2017. His wife, Xiomara, won in a free and fair election that somewhat astonishingly is not being contested by the U.S. government. That likely reflects just how corrupt and terrible 12 years of right-wing National Party rule has been for the people of Honduras.  

    Zoe describes the deeply entrenched problems fueled by outgoing President Juan Orlando Hernandez and the role of the U.S. in making the root causes of poverty and violence worse through neoliberal exploitation, expansion of policing, and militarization of the country.

Advises listeners to disregard Public Health and medical advice

Rania and Kevin have no training or experience in healthcare. That’s obvious, as they had a comedian come on to tell everybody to disregard social distancing guidelines related to COVID-19. This joker hosted an event at a comedy club during the pandemic, so Rania and Kevin thought he was really neat.

Almost 400,000 Americans have died from COVID in less than one year. We have a vaccine that hasn’t been distributed properly to protect the greater public yet. This disease is very real. It’s not a joke. Yet these jokers want you to believe it’s some kind of conspiracy or paranoid fantasy.

I think Kevin and Rania should call every family member of the nearly half million dead in this country to apologize for encouraging people to spread this disease. And the nurses and doctors who have had to risk their lives going to work for the past year only to listen to this kind of stuff from people who have no idea what they are talking about.

Rania, Kevin, if this is a conspiracy or paranoid delusion, why is every country on the planet dealing with this? Why are the hospital beds and graveyards full? Why does every peer reviewed medical journal in every language fill its pages with advice to not gather in crowds- like that that Colorado nightclub? Do you think the entire global medical community is having the same delusion?

Or, maybe, you’re just wrong.

Stop telling people to endanger their lives and the lives of others.
