Gaslit Nation


Jun 15, 2024

Terrell Starr of the essential Black Diplomats Podcast & Substack is back on Gaslit Nation to join Andrea in debating why the Democrats don’t have their own Project 2025. So Gaslit Nation makes our own with a little help from Elizabeth Warren’s plans! 

We also discuss the toxic industrial complex of far-right funded fake progressives who are paid trolls of dictatorships like Russia and Iran and wannabe dictators like American oligarch and dystopian tech Bond villain Peter Thiel. These “useful idiots” are bought off by powerful forces to divide and conquer the Left. The oligarchs we’re up against want the Left to fight each other rather than join together to build political power–the only way to ensure a livable future. It’s a divide and conquer strategy that, unfortunately, works. 

There is no substitute for political power, or else our enemies wouldn’t work so hard to suppress the vote and mindhack people into voting against their interests or not voting at all. Every resistance movement and revolution that succeeded did so thanks to coalition building, not from ripping each other apart. 

Here are some of the exciting events we have coming up for our Patreon community: 

Investigative Journalist Craig Unger Live-Taping - June 25th 12pm ET: 

  • June 25th is George Orwell’s birthday! Come celebrate with us at a live taping of Gaslit Nation, featuring another fearless journalist, Craig Unger, the author of several bestselling books: House of Trump, House of Putin; House of Bush, House of Saud; and American Kompromat: How the KGB Cultivated Donald Trump, and Related Tales of Sex, Greed, Power, and Treachery (which features his reporting on Jeffrey Epstein's pedophile global crime syndicate). Joining the live-taping will be Russian mafia expert Olga Lautman and European analyst Monique Camarra of Kremlin File. Drop your questions in the chat! Be sure to subscribe at Patreon.com/Gaslit at the Truth-teller tier ($5/month) or higher to get your ticket. A zoom link will be sent out the morning of the event. Thank you to everyone who supports the show! 

Cult Expert Dr. Janja Lalich Live-Taping - July 15 8pm ET

  • July 15th kicks off the Republican National Convention/Hitler rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. To help us cope with the mainstream media, especially the New York Times, continuing to normalize Trump and his MAGA cult, we’re producing a live taping with cult expert Dr. Janja Lalich. Bring your questions about how to navitage this perilous time of rampant disinformation and manipulation, learn the signs of cult grooming, and how to help loved ones who have fallen victim. This will be Dr. Lalich’s second time on the show. You can listen to the interview with her from April 2022 here

In the Shadow of Stalin Book Launch - September 

  • Gaslit Nation will host a live taping at a book launch in New York City for In the Shadow of Stalin, the graphic novel adaptation of Mr. Jones. It includes scenes that didn’t make it into the final cut of the film, or it would have been three hours long! The evening will include a special meet-up just for Patreon supporters. We look forward to sharing more details as we get closer. If you want a book event/live taping of Gaslit Nation in your town or city, let us know! 

Indivisible x Gaslit Nation Phonebank Party! - June 20th 7pm ET

  • Open to all, Gaslit Nation and Indivisible are kicking things off early this year, really early! When there’s such a thing as Project 2025, there’s no time to waste. Come join us for our first phone bank party of the season, as we make calls to our fellow citizens in Republican hostage states, to refuse to abandon those on the frontlines of American authoritarianism, and to plant seeds of change. We’re going in! 

RSVP here to join us! https://www.mobilize.us/indivisible/event/628701/

Thank you to everyone who supports the show – we could not make Gaslit Nation without you!
