BEHIND THE SCENES "PACIFICA 2015 AUDIT COMPLETED"
http://pacificainexile.org/archives/2458
(Strangely enough, this was accomplished against the constant and intense opposition of the privatizers and ideologues who have sought to destroy listener-sponsored radio during their past years in the majority. This posting lists the individual yes and no voters by name. which includes the 5 who voted NO audit which would mean loss of another million dollar grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and loss of Pacifica's non-profit status. I'm sure they meant well but it's difficult to understand their rationale -RT)

WILLIAM S. EIDELMAN, M.D. graduated with a B.A. Degree in Psychology from U.C.L.A. in 1970 and received his M.D. from St. Louis University School of Medicine, Missouri in 1975. Later he trained in Psychiatry in Oakland, California but left that to enter the field of Alternative Medicine. Currently, he works as a Consultant in natural approaches to healing. The main treatment modalities are herbs, nutrition, bioelectromagnetism and meditation. In 2006, he discovered that the Alpha-Stim, a micro-electric current stimulator, melts the craving for a cigarette for 2 minutes nearly every time. Alpha-Stim is widely used for anxiety, depression, insomnia and pain.

Dr. Eidelman has been working for more than 20 years with natural cancer therapies, beginning with 714X. He has worked consistently with Poly-MVA and Apoptosin, as part of a healing program. He has observed the results of Energy Medicine in cancer. He was one of the pioneer physicians to help patients obtain their rights under the Compassionate Use Act of 1996 and thus began a journey of learning the healing powers of Cannabis from his patients. While cannabis might be an “old faithful” for relieving symptoms associated with both cancer and cancer treatments such as chemo and radiation it is only very recently emerging that more concentrated oils, taken orally or topically, are putting cancer into remission. While these cannabis oils do not have the long term track record of other therapies well known to Cancer Control Society, they are very promising.

Dr. Eidelman belongs to the following Professional Organizations: Member, American College for Advancement in Medicine ( www.acam.org ), Member, Society of Cannabis Clinicians ( www.ccrmg.org ) and Fellow, American Institute of Stress ( www.stress.org ) He may be contacted at his Clinic located in Hollywood, California by phone 323-463-3295 and

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 30

Dave Emory, “For the Record #967 – Update on Ukrainian Fascism, the "Russia-Gate" Psy-Op and the Possibility of a Third World War”

This program affords a vista on several critical political and national security landscapes, including the use of nuclear power plants as an economic weapon and sabotaged via physical interdiction or cyber-interference.

After examining a supposed “Russian-meddling” incident which was actually an ANTI-Russian incident to use Ukrainian nuclear power plants to supersede the old Soviet power grid in former republics of the U.S.S.R., we note the continued dominance of the Ukrainian political landscape by virulent fascists evolved from the World War II era OUN/B.

We conclude with a terrifying look at the possibility that the sabotaging/hacking of nuclear power plants could lead to a Third World War.

With the media and political establishments turning handsprings over “Russia-gate,” we examine in detail one of the incidents prominent in the presentation of the supposition that “our democracy” was manipulated by the Russians.

In late January, Trump point man for “matters Russian”–CIA/FBI operative Felix Sater, a long-time associate of his and Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and a Ukrainian parliamentarian named Andrii Artemenko were proposing a cease-fire/peace plan for Ukraine. This has been spun by our media as constituting yet another of the “Russia controls Trump” manifestations.

The facts, however, reveal that this was not a “pro-Russian” gambit but an ANTI-Russian gambit! In addition to the CIA/FBI affiliation of Sater, it should be noted that Artemenko was part of the Pravy Sektor milieu in Ukraine, one of the most virulent of the OUN/B successor organizations in power in that benighted nation.

Sater, Artemenko and others were working on a plan to rehabilitate Ukrainian nuclear power plants in order to generate electricity for Ukraine and the Baltic states, freeing those former Soviet republics from their old Soviet electrical power grids. The aging Soviet grids are a remaining element for potential Russian influence in these areas…

MONDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 21


12-1:30 Ed McGaa - Eagle Man, "Black Elk's Prayer & Vision"

Twenty years before the fall of the Sioux Nation, a nine-year-old boy named Black Elk experienced a vision of 'the six great powers' that guide the universe - and the future that would await his people. At the end of his life, it was his hope that all human being might benefit from what he had learned. Over 100 years later, that revelation continues to unfold.

On 'Black Elk's Prayer and Vision,' historian Ed McGaa looks back at the rich and fabled history of the Sioux people and teaches what Black Elk foresaw in the future for our world.. Here is Black Elk's sweeping revelation in its entirety, interpreted with heartfelt words by a modern scholar of the Sioux Legacy.

Ed McGaa is called Eagle Man by his people, the Oglala Sioux. He was born in the Oglala Sioux Reservation and his a historian of his tribe. As a Marine Corp fighter pilot, he served on over 110 combat missions. He has danced in sun dances for many years and learned the sacred Sioux Ceremonies with the holy men Chief Eagle Father and Chief Fools Crow. Eagle Man holds a law degree from the University of South Dakota and is the author of 'Red Cloud.' 'Mother Earth Spirituality,' 'Rainbow Tribe' and 'Native Wisdom' Originally from Sounds True but not in current catalogue


1:30-2:30 Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, "An Indigenous Economic Model"

The existing economic system in most countries is a kind of state capitalism. It produces enormous inequalities. Its extraction practices are environmentally destructive. Perhaps indigenous models provide a viable alternative. Chief Seattle was a Susquamish chief in what is now Washington State. He reportedly made these observations in an 1854 letter to U.S. President Pierce: "How can you buy or sell the sky? the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of the earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every meadow, every humming insect." And he warned: "Continue to contaminate your bed, and you will one night suffocate in your own waste."

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz grew up in rural Oklahoma, the daughter of a tenant farmer and part-Indian mother. She has been active in the international Indigenous movement for more than four decades and is known for her lifelong commitment to social justice issues. Her 1977 book The Great Sioux Nation was the fundamental document at the first international conference on Indigenous peoples of the Americas, held at UN headquarters in Geneva. She is the author of 'An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States,' winner of the 2015 American Book Award and 'All the Real Indians Died Off and 20 Other Myths about Native Americans.'

2:30-3:30 "From the Vault," Carlos Castaneda and Lila Downs
This week on From The Vault we feature a rare 1968 recording of the Peruvian born American author, Carlos Castaneda about his first book, "The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge" originally published by the University of California Press as a work of Anthropology and has gone on to be an international best seller. We also will hear the music of the incomparable Lila Downs, the Mexican folk singer. We paired Lila Downs with Carlos Casteneda because of her own anthropological exploration into her own indigenous culture. Born in 1968 (the same year as the Castaneda recording) of an American father and Mixtec mother from Oaxaca, Mexico, she was raised in California as a teenager and went to College in her father's native state of Minnesota. It wasn't until her graduation from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Anthropology and voice that she chose to move back to Oaxaca and explore the languages of her mother Mixtec, Zapotec and Spanish as well as the pre-Columbian indigenous writings or codices. Lila's discovery of her indigenous roots is a central theme in much of her music.

Dave Emory, "For the Record #966 - Dramatis Personae of the Russia-Gate Psy-Op"

Developing information about the cast of characters in the "Russia-Gate" psy-op, we highlight the political allegiance of "Team Trump"-the operatives involved with Trump's campaign and business dealings with Russia, as well as Robert Mueller, former FBI chief and a very special prosecutor indeed.

Although Trump certainly had links to Russian mob figures, they are by no means the prime movers in this drama.

Most importantly, we detail the political resumes and deep politics underlying the cast of characters in this drama, tracking the operational links back to Joe McCarthy and the red-baiting specialists from the first Cold War.

Joe McCarthy's (former R, Sen. WI, 1950's) legal point man Roy Cohn is, to a considerable extent, the spider at the center of this web. Cohn:

1.-Was Trump's attorney for much of "The Donald's" professional life.

2.-Introduced Trump campaign manager and dirty tricks specialist Roger Stone to the seated President.

3.-Was instrumental in arranging for a bribe which made "independent" Republican John Anderson the Presidential candidate for the Liberal Party in New York. This gambit gave Reagan a key victory in New York. Cohn and Stone's associate in this operation was Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno-one of Cohn's mob clients and among Donald Trump's organized crime associates as well.

4.-Was the point man for introducing Rupert Murdoch to Ronald Reagan and forging the right-wing media attack machine that dominates today, the most prominent element of which is Fox News.

Roger Stone is another figure who weaves throughout this concatenation. Stone:

1.-Was Donald Trump's campaign manager and later dirty tricks operative, who networked with WikiLeaks go-between for the Trump/Alt-right crew.

2.-Was touting Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson. Johnson and Jill Stein were advocated for by Stone as participants in the debates between Hillary Clinton and Trump. (Johnson and Stein's combined vote total helped Trump win in several key states.)

3.-Worked with Roy Cohn to put "independent" Republican John Anderson the Presidential candidate for the Liberal Party in New York. This gambit gave Reagan a key victory in New York, as noted above.

The point man for the Trump business interests in their dealings with Russia is Felix Sater. A Russian-born immigrant, Sater is a professional criminal and a convicted felon with historical links to the Mafia. Beyond that, and more importantly, Sater is an FBI informant and a CIA contract agent. As the media firestorm around "Russia-gate" builds, it is important not to lose sight of Sater. " . . . . He [Sater] also provided other purported national security services for a reported fee of $300,000. Stories abound as to what else Sater may or may not have done in the arena of national security. . . ." We wonder if helping the "Russia-Gate" op may have been one of those.

Beyond Sater, other key players in this concatenation do not track back to "Kremlin/Putin/FSB/KGB." Rob Goldstone-the publicist whose overture to Donald Trump, Jr. initiated the latest "Russia-gate journalistic feeding frenzy in the media, began his career a journalistic foot soldier for Rupert Murdoch, the very same Rupert Murdoch whose christening as a GOP/right-wing propagandist was initiated by Roy Cohn.

Goldstone contacted Donald Trump Jr., dangling the bait that there might be dirt on Hillary available if he met with some associates. Foremost among those is a Russian attorney, Natalie Veselnitskaya. Her apparent purpose in this meeting was not to offer up dirt on Hillary Clinton but to work toward easing a media lockdown on a documentary about the Magnitsky affair.

Spun in the West, the U.S. in particular, as a classic example of ham-fisted Russian corruption and violence, the Magnitsky affair was revealed in the film documentary to be an example of U.S. corruption, not Russian.

Crafted by Putin political opponent Andrei Nekrasov, the film revealed an unexpected dynamic: " . . . . Nekrasov discovered that a woman working in Browder's company was the actual whistleblower and that Magnitsky - rather than a crusading lawyer - was an accountant who was implicated in the scheme. . . ."

Attempting to lift the media blackout on Nekrasov's film was Veselnitskaya's goal, not disseminating dirt on Hillary Clinton.

Program Highlights Include: the financing of Joe McCarthy's career by Nazi sympathizer Walter Harnischfeger, part of the German-American Fifth Column in this country which was at the forefront of the discussion in FTR #'s 918, 919; McCarthy's use of a postwar Nazi network headed by General Karl Wolff, SS chief Heinrich Himmler's personal adjutant; Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's role in covering up the BCCI scandal and the overlapping Operation Green Quest investigation pursuant to 9/11.

The Ralph Nader Radio Hour
Hands Off Our National Parks!/Trump Connections to ISIS?

Ralph talks to author and conservationist, Terry Tempest Williams about her lyrical paean to our national parks, 'The Hour of Land.' And intrepid investigative journalist, Allan Nairn, tells us about Donald Trump's connections to ISIS in Indonesia.

Terry Tempest Williams is an American author, naturalist, and conservationist. Ms. Williams has been called "a citizen writer," who speaks out eloquently on behalf of an ethical stance toward life. Her work ranges from issues of ecology and wilderness preservation, to women's health, to exploring our relationship to culture and nature. Her latest work is entitled 'The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America's National Parks,' which is a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the unique grandeur of twelve of our most prominent national parks, while delving into what it means to shape a landscape with its own evolutionary history into something of our own making.

"Close to three million citizens like you and me wrote letters to the Department of Interior saying, 'Keep your hands off these twenty-seven monuments.' Now, will they listen? Will they listen to the American people who say, 'keep the open space of democracy open'?"

ALAN WATTS SUNDAYS, 8am

(From Mark Watts at alanwatts.org)

Hi, we're so glad to be getting back in touch with you. This is our first newsletter and we'd love to show you what we are working on.

We are the Alan Watts Organization. Under the guidance of Alan's son, Mark Watts, we are working to distribute and provide avenues to interact with the recorded works of Alan Watts in ways that are both playful and meaningful. This endeavor includes archiving the original media, digitization, categorization, mastering, restoring, and curating the source material, as well as a host of other editorial and creative tasks.

Presently, the initial focus of the Alan Watts Organization is to establish a trusted repository of the current digitized works of Alan Watts, and also to continue the digitization efforts, as there are still hundreds of hours of never before distributed work. As we finalize the archiving efforts, we will also be actively participating in the furtherance of the philosophy and playfulness Alan was such a strong believer in. http://www.news@alanwatts.org

12:30-3:30 Clarissa Pinkola Estes, "Women Who Run With The Wolves"

First published three years before the print edition of Women Who Run With the Wolves made publishing history, this original audio edition quickly became an underground bestseller. For its insights into the inner life of women, it established Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés as one of the most important voices of our time in the fields of Jungian psychology, myth, and women's mysteries.

Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora ("keeper of the old stories"), Dr. Estés uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estés helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.

The magical storytelling, myths, and commentary on Women Who Run With the Wolves continue to inspire a new level of self-knowledge among listeners young and old.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 16



12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #965 - Are We Going to Have a Third World War?"

Recent developments are suggestive of the ominous possibility of an imminent Third World War. We present some new information and recap and further analyze stories covered in previous programs in order to underscore and highlight the potential devastation of these events.

As the furor ("fuehrer"?) surrounding the potentially lethal political hoax known as "Russia-gate" gains momentum, it should be noted that the point man for the Trump business interests in their dealings with Russia is Felix Sater. A Russian-born immigrant, Sater is a professional criminal and a convicted felon with historical links to the Mafia. Beyond that, and more importantly, Sater is an FBI informant and a CIA contract agent: ". . . . There is every indication that the extraordinarily lenient treatment resulted from Sater playing a get-out-of-jail free card. Shortly before his secret guilty plea, Sater became a freelance operative of the Central Intelligence Agency. One of his fellow stock swindlers, Salvatore Lauria, wrote a book about it. The Scorpion and the Frog is described on its cover as 'the true story of one man's fraudulent rise and fall in the Wall Street of the nineties.' According to Lauria-and the court files that have been unsealed-Sater helped the CIA buy small missiles before they got to terrorists. He also provided other purported national security services for a reported fee of $300,000. Stories abound as to what else Sater may or may not have done in the arena of national security. . . ."

Sater was active on behalf of the Trumps in the fall of 2015: ". . . . Sater worked on a plan for a Trump Tower in Moscow as recently as the fall of 2015, but he said that had come to a halt because of Trump's presidential campaign. . . ."

Sater was initiating contact between the Russians and "Team Trump" in January of this year: " . . . . Nevertheless, in late January, Sater and a Ukrainian lawmaker reportedly met with Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, at a New York hotel. According to the [New York] Times, they discussed a plan that involved the U.S. lifting sanctions against Russia, and Cohen said he hand-delivered the plan in a sealed envelope to then-national security advisor Michael Flynn. Cohen later denied delivering the envelope to anyone in the White House, according to the Washington Post. . . ."

A stunning development concerns extreme reticence on the part of the U.S. intelligence community...

Program Highlights Include: Review of a Trump administration warning of another supposed, impending "Syrian chemical weapons strike"-a warning that has since been retracted; discussion of brilliant Nazi hacker Andrew Auerenheimer's orchestration of an "Alt-right" online intimidation campaign against CNN employees; Auerenheimer's current residence in Ukraine; the ominous possibility of the activation/manipulation of the NSA cyber-weapons installed on Russian computer networks by a third party (perhaps someone with the capabilities of the brilliant Auerenheimer); review of the observations by a German professor-opposed to Nazism/Hitler-who described the essence of what it was like, subjectively, to live through the rise of Hitler-his observation presented in the context of the ODNI's decision not to release even a fully-redacted version of the intelligence report on "Russian meddling" in the U.S. election: " . . . . . . . . What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise, to receiving decisions deliberated in secret, to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand because of nationality security, so dangerous that even if the people the people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security. . . ."

1-2 The Ralph Nader Radio Hour

Ralph has a fascinating conversation about the billions of dollars spent on political philanthropy and what all that money is working for with David Callahan, author of 'The Givers: Wealth, Power, and Philanthropy in a New Gilded Age.' Also, Ralph answers more listener questions!

David Callahan is founder and editor of "Inside Philanthropy," a website that examines how foundations and major donors are giving away their money, and why. Mr. Callahan has written extensively on trends in philanthropy, as well as American culture, public policy and business and is author, most recently, of The Givers: Wealth, Power, and Philanthropy in a New Gilded Age.

"My book doesn't really pick sides in terms of pointing out who are the real bad guys here as much as it says, 'Hey, all of this giving by all of this politicized philanthropy really is amplifying the voice of that top - not 1% - the top .01% at a time when we're already very concerned about how much power the wealthy have.'" David Callahan, author of "The Givers: Wealth, Power, and Philanthropy in a New Gilded Age."

Initially heard on KPFK Saturdays, 10amhttp://www.ralphnaderradiohour.com



2-3 Ralph Nader Radio Hour Catch-up

Ralph talks to Democratic Congressman and constitutional law scholar Jamie Raskin about how progressives can break the Republican stranglehold on the federal government. And union organizer Jeffrey Farmer describes the pitched battle between the Teamsters and XPO Logistics, one of the largest transportation companies in the world.

Congressman Jamie Raskin represents Maryland's 8th Congressional District in the House of Representatives. He is the Vice-Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, and serves on two Judiciary subcommittees: the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice; and the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigation. For more than twenty-five years, Congressman Raskin has been a professor of constitutional law at American University's Washington College of Law. He authored several books, including the Washington Post bestseller Overruling Democracy: The Supreme Court versus the American People and the highly-acclaimed We the Students: Supreme Court Cases For and About America's Students.

Jeffrey Farmer is the Director of Organizing for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, a union representing more than 1.4 million members throughout North America. A thirty-five year veteran of the labor movement, Mr. Farmer has been a member and worked for several unions before being asked by President Jim Hoffa to create a new Teamsters Organizing Department with the goal of making the Teamsters one of the largest, strongest and fasted-growing unions in North America.

From Mark Watts:

Hi, we're so glad to be getting back in touch with you. This is our first newsletter and we'd love to show you what we are working on.

We are the Alan Watts Organization. Under the guidance of Alan's son, Mark Watts, we are working to distribute and provide avenues to interact with the recorded works of Alan Watts in ways that are both playful and meaningful. This endeavor includes archiving the original media, digitization, categorization, mastering, restoring, and curating the source material, as well as a host of other editorial and creative tasks.

Presently, the initial focus of the Alan Watts Organization is to establish a trusted repository of the current digitized works of Alan Watts, and also to continue the digitization efforts, as there are still hundreds of hours of never before distributed work. As we finalize the archiving efforts, we will also be actively participating in the furtherance of the philosophy and playfulness Alan was such a strong believer in. www.news@alanwatts.org

TUESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 8

12-4 Special Hiroshima Memorial Night

August 6, 1945, The U.S. dropped an A-Bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

Featuring selections from

“The Last Train from Hiroshima: The Survivors Look Back” Audio CD – Audiobook, CD, Unabridged by Charles Pellegrino (Author), Arthur Morey (Narrator) pertaining to the bombing of Hiroshima.

(I added as a short introduction on the so-called 'necessity' of dropping the A-Bomb by Lila Garrett, excerpted from her "Connect the Dots" program from some years ago -- Roy)



-------------------------------------

Charles Pelligrino told me that the questionable data concerned stories told him by one informant about supposed events on the island of Tinian from which the bombers took off -- Roy

------------------------------------

“Full Synopsis
Recently, there have been questions about the accuracy of some parts of this book. At this time, Tantor Media will continue to make it available to our customers, but we wanted to make you aware of the issues. Here is a statement from the hardcover publisher of the book, Henry Holt and Company:

"It is with deep regret that Henry Holt and Company announces that we will no longer print, correct or ship copies of Charles Pellegrino's The Last Train from Hiroshima due to the discovery of dishonest sources of information for the book. It is easy to understand how even the most diligent author could be duped by a source, but we also understand that this opens that book to very detailed scrutiny. The author of any work of non-fiction must stand behind its content. We must rely on our authors to answer questions that may arise as to the accuracy of their work and reliability of their sources. Unfortunately, Mr. Pellegrino was not able to answer the additional questions that have arisen about his book to our satisfaction."

"'The Last Train from Hiroshima' offers listeners a stunning "you are there" time capsule, gracefully wrapped in elegant prose. Charles Pellegrino's scientific authority and close relationship with the A-bomb's survivors make his account the most gripping and authoritative ever written.

"At the narrative's core are eyewitness accounts of those who experienced the atomic explosions firsthand—the Japanese civilians on the ground and the American fliers in the air. Thirty people are known to have fled Hiroshima for Nagasaki—where they arrived just in time to survive the second bomb. One of them, Tsutomu Yamaguchi, is the only person who experienced the full effects of the cataclysm at ground zero both times. The second time, the blast effects were diverted around the stairwell in which Yamaguchi had been standing, placing him and a few others in a shock cocoon that offered protection, while the entire building disappeared around them.

"Pellegrino weaves spellbinding stories together within a narrative that challenges the 'official report,' showing exactly what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki—and why."

"Jesus: His Religion or The Religion About Him?” Part 1 From http://www.alanwatts.org



MONDAY NIGHT, JULY 31, 2017


12-2 Saturday With Sheehan, July 15, 2017 (from Standing Rock) (video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r9jqjg4Oh8&t=159s )

Daniel Sheehan is president and co-founder of the Romero Institute and the former president and co-founder of the Christic Institute.

Carrying degrees from Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Daniel has helped lead more than a dozen lawsuits of historic importance, including three Supreme Court cases. Among the lawsuits Mr. Sheehan has joined are as follows:

The Pentagon Papers Case (New York Times Co. v United States) Eisenstadt v. Baird In re Pappas: Branzburg v. Hayes The Watergate Burglary Case (United States v. George Gordon Liddy, et al.) The Wounded Knee Trials Morton v. Mancari The Karen Silkwood Case (Silkwood v. Kerr McGee) The Three-Mile Island Case (PIRC v. Three Mile Island) The American Sanctuary Movement Case (U.S. v. Stacey Lynn Merkt, et al.) The Greensboro Massacre Case (Waller v. Butkovich) The Iran-Contra Affair (Civil) Case (Avirgan v. Hull, et al) Standing Rock Defense of Chase Iron Eyes Mr. Sheehan’s legal work has helped expose the structural sources of injustice in the United States and around the world.
Daniel currently lives in Santa Cruz, CA and teaches at the University of California at Santa Cruz. You can view the archive of Daniel Sheehan’s UCSC courses at http://www.romeroinstitute.org/learn/ucsc-class-archive/ . He is the author of a memoir, 'The People’s Advocate.'

In this latest monthly interview by Kosta Makers, http://www.ETLetsTalk.com , Sheehan is speaking from Standing Rock which, while being ignored generally by the media, is a very much alive case. For instance, the court has found the pipeline to be unlawful from environmental and civil rights law, but nothing has been done about this mere court decision; the trash of the City of Bismarck was dumped at Standing Rock to discredit the Water Protectors; the relation between the TigerSwan troops and the (formerly called) Blackwater; Trump's financial interest in the Dakota Access Pipeline, and much more. Sheehan is the lawyer for Chase Iron Eyes who is being charged with 'insurrection.' Sheehan reveals much unknown information about what has been and is going on at Standing Rock which is very much a major battle by the full spectrum dominance forces formed in 1992 against indigenous peoples of the world. Second and related question he answers is on 'the Trump-Russian thing' and third question on the importance of universities in the battle to save the planet from environmental destructive forces and the importance of maintaining a cosmic perspective now that the new telescopes have revealed that our Milky Way contains not a hundred million stars but four to five hundred million.

One important factor about Dan Sheehan is that his assertions, ideas and 'theories' are based on the legal standard that they are backed by evidence and able to be proved in court, not just seemingly cogent. His history of the last decades of activism is recounted in "The People's Advocate" https://romero-institute.squarespace.com/store/daniel-sheehan-the-peoples-advocate

2-3 From the Vault: Carlos Hagen Presents, ‘Violeta Parra, Woman of the Continent’

Carlos B. Hagen-Lautrup III, simply known as Carlos Hagen to his KPFK Los Angeles audience. Born in Santiago Chile in 1929, Carlos Hagen moved to Los Angeles in 1962 and began producing KPFK programming the same year, and continued making tapes at home until 1974. He died in Malibu California in 2010.

His programs ranged from a 1962 Frank Zappa performance to an interview with Dr. Ralph Greenson that same year. on the unhealthy Psychological values in American Society. He also devoted much time to unheralded Chilean artists, poets, and musicians throughout his time on the air.

In February 1973, Carlos Hagen turned his attention to Violeta Parra, the highly influential Chilean musician who scoured the Chilean pueblos beginning in the 1950's to document traditional songs for all occasions. Violeta Parra would reconstitute what she learned from her travels into a new folkloric music or Nueva Cancion to help tell the stories of contemporary society.

She would influence musicians in her own country such as Victor Jara as well as here in the United States. Her most popular song, Gracias a La Vida was covered by artists such as Argentinean Mercedes Sosa, Mexico's Chavela Vargas and American Joan Baez.

And now we present this 1973 program, in which Carlos Hagen presents incredibly rare Violeta Parra recordings from his personal collection and gives incredible insight into each song, translating important passages and context into English for his American audience. This is one of the most beautiful and heartfelt programs among Carlos' 500+ shows for KPFK.

12-1 Dave Emory, “For the Record #964 – Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics”

As we have noted in many previous broadcasts and posts, cyber attacks are easily disguised. Perpetrating a “cyber false flag” operation is disturbingly easy to do.

This is of paramount significance in evaluating the increasingly neo-McCarthyite New Cold War propaganda about “Russian interference” in the U.S. election.

Compounding the situation are some recent disclosures and developments:

1.–We learn that the CIA’s hacking tools are specifically crafted to mask CIA authorship of the attacks. Most significantly, for our purposes, is the fact that the Agency’s hacking tools are engineered in such a way as to permit the authors of the event to represent themselves as Russian.

2.–The NSA’s elite hacking technology has been made widely available to the hacking community, courtesy of “The Shadow Brokers.”

3.–During the 2016 Presidential campaign, Michael Flynn was professionally involved with numerous cyber-security and cyber arms manufacturing firms: “ . . . . The month before Flynn joined the advisory board of OSY Technologies, NSO Group opened up a new arm called WestBridge Technologies, Inc., in the D.C. region. (The company was originally registered in Delaware in 2014, but formed in Maryland in April 2016.) Led by NSO Group co-founder Lavie, WestBridge is vying for federal government contracts for NSO Group’s products. Hiring Flynn would provide NSO Group with a well-connected figure in Washington, to help get its foot in the door of the notoriously insular world of secret intelligence budgeting. . . .When you’re trying to build up your business, you need someone who has connections, someone who is seen as an authority and a legitimate presence,” Johnson said. Hiring someone with Flynn’s background in intelligence would ‘open up doors that they wouldn’t have had access to,’ Johnson said.Throughout 2016, Flynn worked for a number of cybersecurity firms personally and through his consulting firm, Flynn Intel Group. In addition to his advisory board seat at OSY Technologies, he sat on the board of Adobe Systems, a large software company with Pentagon contracts, and the boards of the cybersecurity companies GreenZone Systems and HALO Privacy. (Though Flynn described himself as an Adobe advisory board member in his financial disclosure paperwork, the group said in a statement that he provided only “periodic counsel to Adobe’s public sector team.”) . . .”

4.–NSO Group and OSY Technologies specialize in spear-fishing attacks, one of the methodologies used in the hacks of U.S. election computers. Is there any link between Flynn’s cyber-security/cyber arms links and the high-profile hacks during the campaign?



5.–A GOP tech database–Deep Root–Exposed the data of almost two hundred million American voters to widespread scrutiny. Is there any connection between Deep Root, the GOP and the alleged Russian hacking of U.S. voting computers? …

2-3 Max Blumenthal “Palestine: 50 Years of Occupation”
Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 13, 2017.

Fifty Years have passed since Israel’s victory in the Six-Day War resulting in the longest military occupation in modern times. And on the ground there has been a radical shift in demographics because of the settlements. What began as a few scattered outposts has now mushroomed into vast sub-divisions and cities with Jewish only road networks connecting them make it difficult for Palestinians to travel. About 600,000 Israelis now live beyond the country's 1967 borders. The Palestinians are being squeezed into ever smaller and smaller enclaves, isolated and without sufficient water. The settlements, illegal under international law, are a key obstacle to the resolution of the conflict. But Israel continues to expand them. Each new house makes the possibility of a just peace more remote. And Washington makes it all possible with its ongoing economic, military and diplomatic support for Israel. Interviewed by David Barsamian.

Max Blumenthal is an award-winning journalist and author of ‘Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel’ and ‘The 51-Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza.’ He is a senior writer for Alternet, and his articles have appeared in The Guardian, The Nation, The New York Times, and other newspapers and journals.

3-4 Professor Ilan Pappe, “Israel-Palestine Through the Lens of Settler-Colonialism”

Ilan Pappe was born in Haifa and educated in Israel. He was a senior lecturer in political science at the University of Haifa (1984–2007) and chaired the Emil Touma Institute for Palestinian and Israeli Studies. He received world attention as one of Israel’s “New Historians” who, since the release of secret British and Israeli government documents in the early 1980s, have been re-writing the history of Israel’s creation in 1948, and the corresponding expulsion of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages that became known as the Nakba – the catastrophe.

Ilan Pappe left Israel in 2008, after Israel’s minister of education called for him to be dismissed from the University of Haifa. He also received several death threats. Since then, he has been a professor of history with the College of Social sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom.

He spoke on March 24, 2017, at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. He was introduced by Dale Sprusansky, the assistant editor of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.

Once a year – since 2014 – a conference on the Israel Lobby and American Policy has been held in Washington DC at the National Press Club. Sponsored by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs and the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, it invites speakers of international importance. Among them in 2017 John Mearsheimer, co-author of the best selling book “The Israel Lobby” and Professor Ilan Pappe, author of “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine”- among many other books.

Since critical discussion of US support for Israel is a taboo topic the conference receives no attention from the mass media and very little by the alternative press. This led them to miss a compelling speech by Israeli historian Ilan Pappe. He explained how Israel became a settler colonial state, and that it now ranks among those that have instituted a system of Apartheid similar to that found in post World War II South Africa which was widely condemned by the world. Professor Ilan Pappe concluded that facts on the ground created by Israel with the expansion of settlements now make a two state solution impossible.
