I am happy to announce the launching of a weekly podcast show I am doing in cooperation with Sibel Edmonds’ Boiling Frogs Post, an incredible alternative news site with excellent sources of information and analysis, rabidly independent and critical!
New Weekly Podcast Series, BFP Members Discussion Forum & More!
Our website has been expanding, our readership and membership has been growing, and my to-do list and objectives for this site has been getting longer instead of getting shorter. Such is life … or ambition … or being driven by all the obstacles and negatives rather than throwing in the towel in disgust … or maybe all of the above.
I want to welcome Andrew Gavin Marshall to our team of BFP partners. You are already familiar with Andrew. We have been publishing his hard-hitting, well-researched and effectively written articles and analyses. And we have received many comments from our readers asking for more of Andrew. If you are new to our website check out his two most recent articles here and here. Well, starting this week Andrew will be producing an exclusive weekly podcast series for Boiling Frogs Post titled “Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall.” This one of a kind show will present facts and macro causes you won’t see elsewhere; at least not this way-this effectively. If you’ve read Andrew’s work, then you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, then you are in for a treat: tons of fuel to get that critical thinking process going. By the way, here is a brief background on Andrew:
Andrew Gavin Marshall is an independent researcher and writer based in Montreal, Canada, writing on a number of social, political, economic, and historical issues. He is also Project Manager of The People’s Book Project. Visit Mr. Marshall’s website here
We are going to make the first two episodes of Andrew’s new podcast show available to all, and after that the podcast show will be available to our subscribing members until they are archived.
For those who are unaware of Boiling Frogs Post and Sibel Edmonds, time to get acquainted!
Boiling Frogs Post is an online news, editorial, analysis, and Podcast interview site covering select but significant blacked out stories and issues, while defying blinded partisanship. Each one of our partner investigative journalists brings 20+ years of investigative journalism experience in reporting controversial and daring topics. Our weekly Podcast interview series, the Boiling Frogs Show, features in depth original interviews with well-respected and controversial guests.
This site has been set up to bring together members of the irate minority club: Those who have gotten tired of the very-dependent mainstream media & and the agenda-driven and partisan pseudo alternative fluff sites. We may be the irate minority out there, but over here we are the majority, so we rule. Together we hope to increase our numbers and take back our hijacked nation.
Sibel Edmonds is the founder and president of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding national security whistleblowers. She has appeared on national radio and TV as a commentator on matters related to whistleblowers, national security, and excessive secrecy & classification, and has been featured on CBS 60 Minutes, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, and in the New York Times, Washington Post, Vanity Fair, The American Conservative, and others.
PEN American Center awarded Ms. Edmonds the 2006 PEN/Newman’s Own First Amendment Award for her “commitment to preserving the free flow of information in the United States in a time of growing international isolation and increasing government secrecy”. She is also the recipient of the 2004 Sam Adams Foundation Award.
Ms. Edmonds worked as a language specialist for the FBI’s Washington Field Office. During her work with the bureau, she discovered and reported serious acts of security breaches, cover-ups, and intentional blocking of intelligence that had national security implications. After she reported these acts to FBI management, she was retaliated against and ultimately fired in March 2002. Since that time, court proceedings on her issues have been blocked by the assertion of “State Secrets Privilege”, and the Congress of the United States has been gagged and prevented from any discussion of her case through retroactive re-classification issued by the Department of Justice.
Ms. Edmonds began her career in 1993 as Project Director for the Rostropovich Foundation, a non-profit humanitarian organization providing medical and food aid to children of the former Soviet Union. She re-located to St. Petersburg, Russia and managed correspondence, shipments, inventory and security precautions in the largest children’s hospital in St. Petersburg. Later, she worked as the Executive Director & Co-Founder of Edmonds Industries, a Consulting and Holding Company, investing in international business and residential real estate development. Ms. Edmonds also worked as a volunteer for the Alexandria CASA program (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for abused children, and as an instructor for the Alexandria Office on Women’s Domestic Violence Program.
Ms. Edmonds has a MA in Public Policy and International Commerce from George Mason University, a BA in Criminal Justice and Psychology from George Washington University, and AA degree in Science from NVCC. She is certified as a Court Appointed Special Advocate and as an instructor for the Women’s Domestic Violence Program. She is fluent in Turkish, Farsi and Azerbaijani.
