September 24, 2021 - Tim Sika Movie Reviews
1882
This week's reviews include THE CARD COUNTER--a revenge thriller about an ex-military interrogator (Oscar Isaac) turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past. -----THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOY IN THE WORLD--documentary about actor Björn Andrésen and the effects of fame thrust upon him when he appeared in Luchino Visconti's 1971 film, "Death in Venice." -----THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE--More about Tammy Faye Baker than the PTL fraud scandal of the late 1980s but watchable as hell. Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield play Tammy and Jim Baker, respectively. -----ATTACK, DECAY, RELEASE--Please make sure to ask me about this--made by one of the best Bay Area filmmakers and I really want to plug it!

Criminal charges, including four counts of involuntary manslaughter, have been filed against California utility Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) over last year's deadly Zogg Fire, which killed four people and destroyed hundreds of buildings, a Shasta County prosecutor announced Friday. The 31-count complaint alleges PG&E committed 11 felonies, multiple misdemeanors and enhanced charges under California law, in connection to the Zogg Fire.The fire, which was sparked by a pine tree contacting PG&E electrical lines, burned more than 56,000 acres in September 2020. In addition to claiming four lives, the Zogg Fire injured one, destroyed 204 residential and commercial structures and damaged 27 others.   https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/24/us/california-pge-zogg-fire-criminal-charges/index.html See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

September 24, 2021 - Republicans in Maricopa, Arizona to show 2020 recount results
1925
PHOENIX (AP) — Donald Trump supporters hired by Arizona Senate Republicans to review the 2020 vote count are preparing to deliver their findings on Friday, the climax of a bizarre quest to find evidence supporting the former president’s false claim that he lost because of fraud. Nearly every allegation made by the review team so far has crumbled under scrutiny. Election officials in Arizona and around the country expect more of the same Friday from the review team they say is biased, incompetent and chasing absurd or disproven conspiracy theories. “Every time Trump and his supporters have been given a forum to prove this case, they have swung and missed,” said Ben Ginsberg, a longtime Republican election attorney and vocal critic of Trump’s push to overturn the election. The unprecedented partisan review — focused on the vote count in Arizona’s largest county, Maricopa — is led and funded largely by people who already believe that Trump was the true winner, despite dozens of lawsuits and extraordinary scrutiny that found no problems that could change the outcome. They’ve ignored the detailed vote-counting procedures in Arizona law. https://apnews.com/article/donald-trump-elections-arizona-phoenix-conspiracy-theories-cdda651fb894c826abf91571a5354c6c   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

September 23, 2021 - Unwanted Robo Calls and Texts
2087
Unwanted calls – including illegal and spoofed robocalls - are the FCC's top consumer complaint and our top consumer protection priority. These include complaints from consumers whose numbers are being spoofed or whose calls are being mistakenly blocked or labeled as a possible scam call by a robocall blocking app or service. The FCC is committed to doing what we can to protect you from these unwelcome situations and is cracking down on illegal calls in a variety of ways: Issuing hundreds of millions of dollars in enforcement actions against illegal robocallers. Empowering phone companies to block by default illegal or unwanted calls based on reasonable call analytics before the calls reach consumers. Allowing consumer options on tools to block calls from any number that doesn't appear on a customer's contact list or other "white list." Requiring phone companies to implement caller ID authentication to help reduce illegal spoofing. Making consumer complaint data available to enable better call blocking and labeling solutions. Check out the consumer guide on Call Blocking Tools and Resources, which includes information on many of the call blocking and labeling tools currently available to consumers. Learn more about FCC Initiatives to Combat Robocalls and Spoofing and download the FCC Report on Robocalls. File a complaint with the FCC if you believe you have received an illegal call or text, or if you think you're the victim of a spoofing scam.

September 21, 2021: Callers discuss media bias and 'missing white woman syndrome' amid Gabby Pepito disappearance
2016
The disappearance of Gabby Pepito has stoked the emotions of the mainstream media. However, many people, including MSNBC's Joy Reid, wonder where the same energy is for missing women of color. On "The ReidOut," Reid agreed that "answers and justice." But the same rules should apply to non-white families too. "It goes without saying that no family should ever have to endure that kind of pain. And the Petito family certainly deserves answers and justice," Reid said. "But the way this story has captivated the nation has many wondering, why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?" https://www.newsbreak.com/news/2379365134261/joy-reid-says-media-is-suffering-from-missing-white-woman-syndrome-amid-gabby-pepito-disappearance   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Now, a body matching Petito’s description has been found out west and Laundrie himself is missing. https://www.wesh.com/article/what-happened-to-gabby-petito-timeline-of-north-port-womans-disappearance-search-for-missing-fiance/37674697#   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

September 20, 2021 - U.S. ramps up plan to expel Haitian migrants gathered in Texas
987
Pat show 9-20-21 U.S. ramps up plan to expel Haitian migrants gathered in Texas WASHINGTON — The sight of thousands of migrants from Haiti crowded in miserable conditions under a Texas bridge presents the Biden administration with a new challenge, one that highlights the real-world consequences of the ongoing impasse in Washington over immigration reform. Images that seemed to show U.S. border guards using reins as whips against the Haitian migrants only added to the sense that the White House was once more overtaken by the rapidity of a worsening situation, as it had been after the fall of Kabul, when thousands of Afghans who had helped the United States rushed Hamid Karzai International Airport in hopes of escape. Asked Monday about alleged treatment of Haitians seeking asylum in the United States by officers of Customs and Border Protection, White House press secretary Jen Psaki struggled to decry the particulars without also condemning the administration’s own position, which appears to leave little hope for the Haitians now huddled on the banks of the Rio Grande. A U.S. Border Patrol agent tries to stop Haitian migrants from entering an encampment in Del Rio, Texas, on Sunday. (Paul Ratje/AFP via Getty Images) “I can’t imagine what context would make that appropriate,” Psaki responded. “I don’t think anyone seeing that footage would think it was acceptable or appropriate.” Haiti is in the midst of political upheaval caused by the July assassination of President Jovenel Moïse. A month later, a devastating earthquake killed thousands and left an estimated 40 percent of the population in some regions homeless. The U.S. rebuffed calls from Haiti’s interim government to deploy troops to help secure the nation following the assassination of Moïse, but the Biden administration did send a military contingent to assist in response to the earthquake.

September 20, 2021 - Lindsey Graham and Mike Lee personally vetted Trump’s fraud claims, new book says. They were unpersuaded.
956
Lindsey Graham and Mike Lee personally vetted Trump’s fraud claims, new book says. They were unpersuaded. Senators Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) and Mike Lee (R., Utah) personally investigated some of former president Trump’s claims of election fraud and concluded they were meritless, according to the book Peril by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. After requesting proof of Trump’s fraud claims, Graham received a collection of memos on January 4 from lawyer Rudy Giuliani entitled “Voting Irregularities, Impossibilities, and Illegalities in the 2020 General Election.” The memos alleged various irregularities in voting in swing states, such as hundreds of dead people voting in Georgia and 12,000 “overvotes” in Arizona, when voters select more than the maximum number of choices on a ballot. Graham had his top lawyer on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lee Holmes, vet the claims in the memos, Woodward and Costa write. Holmes reportedly thought that, based on Giuliani’s own evidence, the claims of dead people voting involved people who in fact died after the election. Additionally, Holmes found that out of the alleged 12,000 overvotes in Arizona, just 180 were cast in the presidential election. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

September 20, 2021 - Bill Maher: Live on Stage - Tickets On Sale Now!
1264
Tickets on sale now! Live comedy is back! Bill Maher, host of HBO’s smash hit Real Time, is returning to the Bay Area with an all-new stand-up comedy show this fall. Maher will bring his special brand of political humor to Marin Center in San Rafael on September 25 for an unforgettable evening of comedy. The last time Maher was here to take the stage in November 2016, The New York Times reported he had a drink in hand “to calm his nerves” following the election of Donald Trump. Now after one of the craziest years in modern history and fresh out from pandemic restrictions, Maher is especially keen to share his razor-sharp political wit on a variety of hot topics with a live audience again in what is sure to be one of the most talked about comedy shows of 2021. For more than twenty-five years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on Politically Incorrect (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last nineteen years on HBO’s Real Time, Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 41 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, VICE. In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, Religulous, directed by Larry Charles (Borat). In addition to his television program – which has featured such visitors as President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Howard Stern, Barbra Streisand, Kerry Washington, Michael Steele, Megyn Kelly, Ronan Farrow, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Eva Longoria, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Jim Carrey, Gen. Wesley Clark, Susan Sarandon, Gary Hart and Pat Buchanan – Maher has written five bestsellers: True Story, Does Anybody Have a Problem with That?
