No Agenda Newsletter

No Agenda
Newsletter

Dear Producers,

Very few producers have bothered to contribute this week. We have only one producer-level contribution. This is not good.

 

Low donations? Bring out the sad kittens

Every year about this time support for you No Agenda Show wanes. Don’t let it happen this year. You are encouraged to at least take out the popular $33.33 sustaining subscription. This subscription leads to Knighthood or more. Click here.

And, of course, you can contribute any amount whatsoever by clicking on the open-ended link here. Please bring up the numbers for tomorrow's show. This your show to support.

Your No Agenda Show is indeed the Guardian of Reality and the Best Podcast in the Universe. The show is your lifeline to a view of the world’s events from a distinctive perspective that actually makes sense.

Most listeners see this perspective and how important it is in their lives when they witness the confusion of the public-at-large over simple news events. The public is naturally confused by government and corporate propaganda. They cannot recognize it for what it is and it often makes no logical sense. They are told one thing or another and it often contradicts what they know to be true.
 This is naturally confusing and unhealthy.
 

With the public, we get our way muthaf'ers

There is also a sense of manipulation that is confusing. This is only explained by the news deconstruction done by No Agenda. To do this work at all the show needs direct support from you, the producers  and supporters. It’s the only way it can be done, without any corrupting influence.
 

 
And remember the show does provide you with up to 25 hours a month of ad-free content. Compare that to your cable bill or to  an expensive visit to the local movie house to watch a two-hour film.
 

$50
 
Contribute today to help the Show beat the summer downturn. Any amount helps.

Tomorrow’s show (Mayday) falls on the Nexus of the 6 week cycle. In the past that has been the show that precedes a weekend event. This aspect will be discussed tomorrow. Please listen.
 

We should be celebrating not lamenting low-contributions

 

Your hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

Avast Antivirus-revisited

[UPDATE]  I figured since this post deserves special notice I am re-submitting it as I don't believe enough people read it the first time around.

I am still a firm believer in the Avast antivirus product however there are a few things that one should remember and recognize when using any "free" software program and that is they would really rather you used their paid model. No, I am NOT recommending you do this. In fact quite the opposite because the paid version provides you with the 'tools' that simply slow your system down and are far too intrusive to be worthy of paying for. Unfortunately like any good product, which Avast antivirus is for doing just that--virus detection, it seems that these products now want to be an all in one security and maintenance program by providing malware/spyware monitoring and software program update monitoring for other programs you have installed. Taking it a step further, it will also monitor all of your web surfing and block various websites. The problem with this, besides the fact this causes major performance issues, it s redundant if you use the chrome web browser since it already monitors for various security threats.

Now the real reason for this post is to make those that use this free antivirus program aware of a few basic things to watch out for with the main one being what happens after an automatic program or virus definition update that prompts you to restart your computer to complete the update. Upon restarting you are presented with a pop up prompting you "you are almost done..." and then it wants you to click OK/CONTINUE, but if you don't first de-select the small checkbox you are going to end up agreeing to allow the installation of software from their sponsor, currently this is drop box. Now you may say, well thats ok because I use dropbox anyway, but this will install that version and it may be an older version. Note: any software program version that is older than the one already installed will not recognize the newer version whereas any installation of a software program that is older than the one already installed you will be prompted that 'this program already exists and is newer than the one you are about to install'. This is typically where most people run in to troubles because even though you may have this software installed, the version may be different due to it being a sponsored version and so when you go to update the normal program you already have installed...that is where things can go wonky. This month it is dropbox which isnt as bad since dropbox is a very good program, but not everyone will need or want this and by simply thinking you ae doing the right thing by clicking "ok/continue" on the competion of the antivirus update you are now left with this new program installed and loading on start up. What happens next month or next week when that free program you have installed changes the sponsor to something else and new updates are ready...you will eventually end up with loads of programs you have no idea what they are, where they came from and why they are making your computer function much slower...all because of one small checkbox you overlooked....and this is why I can't emphasize enough, the importance to simply notify me whenever you get pop ip,prompts that updates are available or any other prompt you are unsure of. Simply click CANCEL or NO when asked if you want to proceed and it will not be updated (that is after you have contacted me to let me know of the prompt you just recieved). 

For me this becomes a quick 2 to 5 minute job of updating instead of a 10-15 minute one because i am first having to remove and clean your computer of the crap you accidently installed.

I'm here to help, so go ahead and take advantage of me!

No Agenda Producers Letter

Dear Producers,

It’s time to begin the six week cycle countdown. Your No Agenda Show will continue to discuss this, deconstructing the events, predicting the future until it is clear that the cycle is over.

One of the problems with these "events" is that, besides providing an excuse for big security budgets, they tend to lead up to something big, meaning these little events are just rehearsals. 

Please give your support to the show to protect yourself from the onslaught of regurgitated and parroted baloney you get from most so-called news sources. Click here to contribute any amount you can afford.

I recovered a few pics sent in by listeners that you might like.

The first is a picture of Adam in some desolate part of Mexico. I was going to add this to the last newsletter to get some sympathy donations. I couldn’t feel that sorry for him. And as you can see he’s addicted to Oreos. According to some government or NGO idiot they are as addictive as cocaine.

 

Living it up in Mexico on vacation!

Here’s is a weird shot of the scratch paper that comes with the Pearson Common Core study and testing system. Producer Chris noted a couple of things. The scratch paper had a bar code and needed to be returned with the test. He suggested the possibility that this will be traced to the student and be checked by the gestapo to make sure the kid isn’t cheating by learning his addition and times-tables by memorizing themrather than going through the convolutions required by the system. Sick
 

Here's an idea for you confronted with this scratch paper. Use this No Agenda scratch paper instead (designed by Producer Robert Goshko). 
 
Finally, who owns this "Noah Genda" yacht up in the Pacific Northwest where it was spotted.? An amusing pun, for certain.
 

On tomorrow’s show we’ll look at the various possibilities for the next cycle event. You’ll be surprised with what we’re coming up with.

Your co-host,

John C. Dvorak
PS Please go immediately to the support page and help the show.
 

I don't want to get hurt in som

Windows 8.1 update failed to install-fix (technical)

[UPDATE]  This supposed 'fix' (below) doesn't work on a DELL machine I recently tried to update so it obviously has not been solved!

-------------------------
With the most recent release of the Windows 8.1 update which in the past was considered a 'service pack' , in some instances it will not install. At first it appeared it was only on Dell machines but then it was happening on some servers as well.  Finally Microsoft realized it was something that required patching and they have done just that. 


Visit this website to learn more and follow the necessary steps depending on your system.

In every instance of this problem that I have encountered with my clients, this page is where I end up downloading the fix from. Note this includes the download link for server, 64 bit and 32 bit versions.

If you are not a tech then most likely you should only be passing this information on to someone that is, that takes care of your computer issues. Contact me if you need further assistance.

No Agenda Newsletter

Newsletter
Dear Producers,

Your No Agenda Show is back on live tomorrow without missing a beat. We need to get the show support back up to normal levels and encourage you to welcome the show back with a generous contribution by clicking here. And, remember, any amount helps.

 

Double credit!

Note double credits. Because we are picking up the slack for show 610, anyone contributing at the Executive of Associate Producer level to Show 610 or 611 will getdouble producer credits. In other words you can put down that you were the producer for 610 AND 611.

Things are a little backed up in the news cycle with Obama heading to Asia to “rebalance” the Pacific. This will come right after Michelle softened up the Chinese, apparently. None of these Asian meetings ever go well for either one of them.

 

The classic
 
You’ll hear a very specific analysis about how Asian racism is affecting all these so-called negotiations. This is something that no mainstream or alternative media will ever discuss. Instead they all choose to promote the notion that only White church-going Republicans are racist
 

Commercial media's imagined portrayal of church goers

On top of this you are about 10 days before the next 6-week cycle event takes place. The Show has been suggesting that the next one will be a real attention-getter. The last one was a simple entrapment scenario played with a dumfuk-loser as the victim. It goes on the ledger and before Congress as another nefarious plot thwarted by the FBI,but the G-men need something with real attention-getting power.
 
In and around Mayday is perfect timing for this. Hopefully no innocent people are hurt.

The Thursday show looks to be a winner. So tell us you are happy to see us return with a special belated $42 Easter contribution by clicking here.

You co-hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adsam Curry

No Agenda Producers Letter

Dear Producers,

We hope you enjoy tomorrow’s show and hope that you continue to support the show during an interlude like this since, believe it or not, we are still working.

Please continue support by clicking here or here.  I checked the Paypal  ledger and very few people including only one associate executive producer have contributed anything to the Sunday show, which is saddening.

 

 
This week you should be all amused by Senate Bill S-2195 and House Resolution 4357. Both are identical to each other (who wrote them?). Both  have passed unanimously. Not one dissenting vote. Both bills are illegal under the US Constitution as Bill of Attainders. This was pointed out by one of the No Agenda legal watchdogs, John Stec.

To remind you what a Bill of Attainder is, exactly, you should read the Wiki entry here.

 

British Justice by Decree

This is a type of law used extensively in England between 1300-1800. What it means insofar as the USA is concerned (in plain terms) is that the legislature cannot decree a person or organization guilty without  due process. This is exactly what is being done with the Iranian Ambassador to the UN, Hamid Abutalebi. Ted Cruz is the biggest loudmouth about this guy and sponsored the Senate version of the Bill.
 

Hamid Abutalebi  is ”believed” or is ”thought to” have “something” to do with the student uprising that resulted in the takeover of the US Embassy in Tehran in 1979. He was 22 at the time.

Now this guy may indeed be a massive creep and bad guy as suggested in this eye-opening biography. 

 

Make no mistake this is an illegal Bill of Attainder and also managed to set up the USA toviolate treaty obligations to the UN, which will be used to again embarrass the US in the eyes of the world community, almost as if Ted Cruz was the biggest sucker in an International  game of intrigue.

Of course the public is all in on this, whipped into a frenzy by Sean Hannity, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and all these other “pro-Constitution” supposed  conservatives. All the Democrats were also waving the flag. Nobody showed any sign of backbone to point out the obvious. This is an illegal unconstitutional act. Of course if nobody in government speaks out about droning US citizens, who cares about this breach?

The question you should ask:  Was this Hamid Abutalebi ever indicted for anything to do with the Iran-hostage crises? Are there papers filed? If he is such a creep for something he did almost 40 years ago why are there no indictments or extradition orders? Why don’t we arrest him at the border?

 Instead, a law is passed declaring him guilty by extension, and all the right wing pundits, who are always talking up the Constitution, praise this legislation? These pundits are not your friends. You have to wonder how else are they chipping away at the Constitution.

All the usual creeps are on board too. Lindsay Graham co-sponsored the Senate bill. Democrat Chuck Schumer publicly said it was great as did John McCain. It passed the Senate by unanimous consent. Where were big talker constitutionalists Rand Paul and Marco Rubio in this debate? Or didn’t they not notice the unconstitutional aspect of this? Surely their large and awesome staffs should have noticed.

 

 Supporters of the house bill authored (sic) by Doug Lamborn of Colorado had chatterbox Louis Gomert on board.

Of course the public is all in on this too, not noticing the consequences and dangers of this sort of legislation. You can be sure the US public has no clue what a Bill of Attainder is or why it is so dangerous to their welfare.

 Read this article published on The Hill website.  In particular read the public comments at the bottom. It should both frighten and enlighten  all No Agenda producers, listeners and supporters
.
You should be glad you are not like these people.  Read the comments and you can easily sense the insanity in the crowd, all inspired by mainstream commercial media.

You should thank the No Agenda Show for much of your own political sanity and continue to support our efforts by clicking here. The topic will be  further discussed, as needed, on the Thursday show.

Your co-host,

John C, Dvorak
PS please add a subscription to your support by clicking here and finding one suitable.

 

Bunny day. Please contribute,

No Agenda Newsletter

No Agenda
Newsletter
Dear Producers,
420 is coming soon and that means two things for No Agenda producers. There will be a clip show produced by Ramsey Cain on Easter Sunday and we still need support during the one day vacation. This seems difficult since the producers have not been active in the past few weeks. Please help. Any amount helps and adds up. Click here now.

One of the themes of your No Agenda Show has been trying to deduce the real messaging surrounding the number 33 or 333 or any number of threes.

 

Why this bypass after over 70 years?

The show receives a lot of letters that refer to the Freemasons and all their 33 references. 

We are all aware of the Freemason connection to 33 but it doesn't really tell us much. In fact, you can argue that the 33 within the Masonic system is just another use of the number to signal something about the Masons. The 33 code may predate Masonry.
33 appears too often in news stories, out-of-the-blue, to just be some coincidence. Adam used to do a segment of the show listing all the uses of 33 for the previous few days before the show. It didn’t help us understand anything.

This sort of hidden code is addressed in the cancelled TV drama Rubicon, but we still know nothing as to the real purpose or the use of 33. For all we know it involves a secret code book we will never see.

All it does is alert us that something is up.

Now the number may simply be gratuitous. No Agenda uses it that way. You have the ever popular $33.33 monthly subscription to the show. You know about Bag 33.
There is Club 33, the strip club.

Is using 3, 33, 333 or any of these numbers a good thing or a bad thing?

Your No Agenda Show continues to look for answers as the only show being done by anyone anywhere that often addresses numerological issues. 420 is a case in point.

 
A Little too much 420, for a little too long

For this reason we are having a one-time special Easter 420 (when will this ever happen again?) $42.00 contribution in support of the show. 42 makes sense because it is the answer to “what’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything?” via Douglas Adam’s Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy. It will be the answer to the show donation doldrums for this week and help the show for Easter. It’s the official 420 Easter support number. 
 
Google Knows Everything
 
It’s affordable and keeps the show fresh and entertaining. Click here to join in.
