An Act of State – The Execution of Martin Luther King (5:04) CD Baby YouTube Channel “Truth Troubadour playlist”. This song is from “Truth Troubadour”, which was released on Dec 2, 2016 as the 4th CD listing in partnership with CD Baby. The song is based on the book of the same title by King family lawyer, William Pepper. The book tells the story of the trial that Pepper won on behalf of the King family in 1999 in a Memphis court where a jury of 6 black and 6 white jurors unanimously found Loyd Jowers and unnamed government conspirators guilty of murdering Martin Luther King. The studio recording features Vic Sadot on vocals and acoustic guitar and Eric Golub on viola.

Amazon has this about the new book:

MARTIN LUTHER KING SURVIVED SHOOTING, WAS MURDERED IN HOSPITAL: AN INTERVIEW WITH WILLIAM PEPPER

Bestselling author, James Earl Ray’s defense attorney, and, later, lawyer for the King family William Pepper reveals who actually killed MLK. 

William Pepper was James Earl Ray’s lawyer in the trial for the murder of Martin Luther King Jr., and even after Ray’s conviction and death, Pepper continues to adamantly argue Ray’s innocence. This myth-shattering exposé is a revised, updated, and heavily expanded volume of Pepper’s original bestselling and critically acclaimed book Orders to Kill, with twenty-six years of additional research included. The result reveals dramatic new details of the night of the murder, the trial, and why Ray was chosen to take the fall for an evil conspiracy—a government-sanctioned assassination of our nation’s greatest leader. The plan, according to Pepper, was for a team of United States Army Special Forces snipers to kill King, but just as they were taking aim, a backup civilian assassin pulled the trigger.

In The Plot to Kill King, Pepper shares the evidence and testimonies that prove that Ray was a fall guy chosen by those who viewed King as a dangerous revolutionary. His findings make the book one of the most important of our time—the uncensored story of the murder of an American hero that contains disturbing revelations about the obscure inner-workings of our government and how it continues, even today, to obscure the truth.

Vic Sadot Releases 4th CD on CD Baby

“Truth Troubadour” is the title of Vic Sadot’s latest CD with 18 songs. Truth Troubadour is the most acoustic and reflective CD of the 4 CD’s that he has posted since first teaming with DiscMakers and CD Baby in 1997. Seventeen of the 18 songs on Truth Troubadour are duos with Vic on guitar and vocals, and some piano accordion on several songs. Eric Golub contributes his formidable talents on various stringed instruments: viola, violin, and 2 ukuleles. It’s a mix of broadside ballads and sweet love songs. Truth Troubadour was published to CD Baby on Dec 2, 2016.

The first press announcement was at VicSadot.com calling for reviews!

“Truth Troubadour CD Is Ready For Review!”

Left My Mind is the lead-off song and the only rocker on the CD. Like Lori, a gentle poetic love song, Left My Mind was written by Joe Sadot, who passed in 1978 at age 26. Left My Mind was recorded in Delaware with Rob Sadot, Dean Banks, and Rob Hunter at Rob’s Tune Room Studios. Everything else was recorded at Ancient Owl Audio (formerly Robot Envy Studio) with Sammy Fielding doing all of the sound recording and mixing work in Berkeley, CA. Here we have Rob Sadot recording “Full Spectrum Dominance” in Berkeley.

The 18 songs cover many topics and emotions. The reflective love songs are titled In the Harbor of Love, Lori, and Dearest Lady. The original broadside ballad topical songs are well-researched on timely topics, such as Full Spectrum Dominance, An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King, Selling Futures, Courage To Resist – Free Chelsea Manning, The Kidnapping Coup (Haiti 2004), and No Nuke Blues Fukushima Update.

Full Spectrum Dominance is of those songs that may take on greater significance and meaning as time goes by. The term is used by the US military and political sectors in reference to their goal of global hegemony on land, air, sea, outerspace, and cyberspace.

The line that says, “Beware of those who joke about sending in the drones!” is a reference to President Obama’s joke at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, May 1, 2010. It was as callous and crude as President Bush’s joke skit at the same dinner during his administration when he was joking about looking for “weapons of mass destruction” in the country he massively destroyed for being under suspicion of having them, Iraq.

Psychopaths in powerful positions seem to not have the empathic abilities that normal people have in society. Michael Moore reported on it here: Obama Jokes About Killing Jonas Brothers With Predator Drones (00:29) mmflint channel“The Jonas Brothers are here. (Applause.) They’re out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans. But, boys, don’t get any ideas. (Laughter.) I have two words for you, predator drones. (Laughter) You will never see it coming. (Laughter.) You think I’m joking. (Laughter.)

This song was written by Vic Sadot for the 4-10-11 visit of Bruce Gagnon to speak at Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA. Bruce is the founder of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. The line-up for this October 2012 session was Vic Sadot on vocals and acoustic guitar, Rob Sadot on electric guitar, and Eric Golub is on violin. “Full Spectrum Dominance makes us all the “enemy”!

Selling Futures (4:32) Vic Sadot & Eric Golub on Truth Troubadour CD at CD Baby YouTube Channel. Published on Dec 11, 2016 – Provided to YouTube by CDBaby.

“We’ve got socialism for the rich; competition for the rest…

 What kind of social system leaves so many dispossessed? …

 If we should ever take it in our hearts to share this great Land of the Free,

 It would be like Woody Guthrie said: This land was made for you and me!”

See Woody Guthrie Center to learn more about his legacy in American folk music.

The Kidnapping Coup is a broadside ballad that tells the story of the US military intervention in Haiti in 2004 to overthrow the elected government of Jean-Bertrand Aristide and the Lavalas Party. He and his wife were actually blindfolded and taken to Africa on a US military jet!

The Fog Watch takes you back into time before we had paved roads and it took farmers an over-night trek to deliver their harvest to the nearest local marketplace. That song was adapted from a poem by Vic’s Uncle George Reuter.

Truth Troubadour Blog on Barrie Zwicker on No Lies Radio’s False Flag Weekly News Show 8-12-16

TRUTH TROUBADOUR BLOG by Vic Sadot: News Analyst Barrie Zwicker on 8-12-16 False Flag Weekly News on No Lies Radio produced by Allan Rees

Barry-Zwicker_False-Flag-Weekly-News_8-12-16_screenshot2-vic-sadot

Hosts Kevin Barrett and “Tony” Antonius J Hall were joined by author and news media analyst Barrie Zwicker for a rapid review of the past week’s news events. The new Vice Presidential candidate of the Green Party USA, human rights activist Ajamu Baraka, was the subject of a mass media attack on him as a “holocaust denier” by virtue of his having been on this very show, “False Flag Weekly News” on No Lies Radio.

Ajamu-Barack_Jill-Stein_Green-Party-Convention-2016-nominees_express-news_920x663

Green Party Presidential nominee Jill Stein invited Ajamu Baraka to join her on the 2016 Green Party ticket as the VP candidate. The central claim or smear against Ajamu Baraka was to name him as a “holocaust denier” in a classic and unfounded “guilt-by-association” technique for having appeared on the show with a said-to-be “known holocaust denier”, host Kevin J Barrett, PhD. Every week on No Lies Radio news events are analyzed with pithy commentary and with screenshots and links given so that the viewer can look into the issues themselves. Barrie Zwicker is famous as the director of the documentary “The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw”, as the author of “Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11”, and as a well-known Canadian television personality for decades. Barrie Zwicker recently reviewed Kevin Barrett’s book on the alleged Orlando massacre event in a column at Craig McKee‘s excellent “Truth and Shadows” Blog.

The song for this blog features the video from Vic Sadot’s “Truth Troubadour” YouTube Channel called “Full Spectrum Dominance”. After a successful crowd-sourced fundraising effort at Indiegogo, Vic is now ready to release a new CD to be titled “Truth Troubadour” featuring a cover photo by Rob Sadot of Vic Sadot during a hiking trip in the East Bay hills. Here is a link to a free mp3 for “Full Spectrum Dominance” at SoundCloud by Broadside Balladeer that is a first rough mix, not the one that will be on the album.

“9/11 in the Academic Community” Movie Live-Stream from Berkeley!

March 30, 2014 Post Event Update Notice: “NOW ARCHIVED”!

The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance (NCA911Truth) Live-Stream event from Berkeley’s Historic Fellowship Hall on MARCH 27, 2014 is now archived on No Lies Radio! 

The idea of the live-stream event was to promote the screening of the film, “9/11 in the Academic Community”, at campuses and communities world-wide in 2014. See the link to the film if you wish to organize an event in your area. The featured film is not in the archive since it was a one-time publicity agreement with the film maker, Adnan Zuberi. The short film titled “The San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11” was shown, and the 10th Anniversary of that event organized by NCA911Truth was celebrated. Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot sang “Cheney’s in the Bunker” and “Trouble in the Rubble”, and the first of those two songs is in this archived segment. The sponsors were Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Project Censored, the BFUU Social Justice Committee, and No Lies Radio. Trailers to the featured film and links to purchase it are also listed at this link at NoLiesRadio.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth posted a review that said: “9/11 In The ACADEMIC COMMUNITY, a winner at the University of Toronto Film Festival, is a unique film that documents academia’s treatment of critical perspectives on 9/11. It explores the taboo that has been effective in shielding the American government’s narrative of the events of 9/11 from scholarly examination. Through a powerful reflection on intellectual courage and the purpose of academia, the film aims at changing intellectual discourse on 9/11 and the War on Terror… As well as probing the repercussions several scholars have endured due to their individual investigations into 9/11, this documentary provides an analysis of impairments in professional inquiry, ranging from the failure to critically reflect on terms that function as “thought-stoppers” (such as “conspiracy theory”) to the structural approach that restricts inquiry to the broad implications of 9/11 while shutting out enquiry into the events of the day itself.” http://www.ae911truth.org/en/news-section/57-news-releases-by-others/795-new-film-takes-on-911-in-the-academic-community.html
