We stan a team of Houthi gamers who were able to knock out half of Saudi Arabia’s oil supply with some drones. And probably not even military-style UAVs -- chances are good these were like hobby store drones with mini bombs attached. Amazing. Amazing! And now of course the President plans on starting a war with Iran and also reassuring us that there’s ‘PLENTY OF OIL!” (source: https://www.military.com/daily-news/2019/09/16/trump-says-us-locked-and-loaded-response-drone-attack.html) We also discuss a recent Military.com piece that describes the difficulties the military faces in combating its white nationalism problem. The burden of proof is high, and there appears to be zero desire to treat it as equivalent to other forms of domestic terror -- wonder why? (source: https://www.military.com/daily-news/2019/09/14/congress-wants-military-report-extremism-ranks-heres-why-will-be-tough.html) Did you hear the one about the Twitch streamer who said mean things about Rep. Dan Crenshaw? Well, it turns out that the story's a bit more complicated than that, and we decided to get to the bottom of it by bringing TYT host and general internet superstar Hasan Piker (@hasanthehun) on to the show.  You can access the full episode on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/29963598 You may have noticed that the next issue of our zine has debuted, and you can get it in print by signing up at the $10 monthly Patreon tier.
