Voices from Syria: A Conversation with Mark Taliano and Rev. Andrew Ashdown

Having spent years observing and researching, Taliano explains in detail which western politicians support terror, how humanitarianism is feigned to cover crimes, and why mainstream media is corrupt to the core.

On The Beloved Community, John Shuck speaks with Mark Taliano, author of Voices from Syria

Three years ago, Mark Taliano travelled to Syria in attempt to hear from Syrians what is really happening in their country. Mark writes:

“Between 15 and 23 September 2016, I travelled to war-torn Syria because I sensed years ago that the official narratives being fed to North Americans across TV screens, in newsprint and on the internet were false. The invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya were all based on lies; likewise for Ukraine. All of the post-9/11 wars were sold to Western audiences through a sophisticated network of interlocking governing agencies that disseminate propaganda to both domestic and foreign audiences. But the dirty war on Syria is different. The degree of war propaganda levelled at Syria and contaminating humanity at this moment is likely unprecedented. I had studied and written about Syria for years, so I was not entirely surprised by what I saw. What I felt was a different story. Syria is an ancient land with a proud and forward-looking people. To this ancient and holy land we sent mercenaries, hatred, bloodshed and destruction. We sent strange notions of national exceptionalism and wave upon wave of lies. As a visitor I felt shame, but Syrians welcomed me as one of them. These are their stories; these are their voices.”

We will spend the hour with Mark, hearing from his perspective, a perspective quite at odds with the official US government narrative.

We were also joined by Anglican priest, Rev. Andrew Ashdown, who has travelled all over Syria and met hundreds of people.

My Interview with Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson is making a big impact in her run for president. She is head and shoulders above most of the other candidates in terms of what politics can and should be.

In August 2016, I interviewed Marianne Williamson about her book, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment. We covered a lot of ground in 27 minutes including politics, who we are as human beings, A Course in Miracles, pharmaceuticals, and physical and psychic pain.

Here is the transcript.

Here is the audio.
