12-2 Saturday with Sheehan (January 13)


Since 2006, Daniel Sheehan has served as the lead attorney and general counsel for the Lakota People’s Law Project (LPLP). Much of LPLP's work has been in South Dakota to stop violations of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and rescue Lakota children from an abusive state care system.

In 2016, LPLP began organizing around the Dakota Access Pipeline. Our Lakota staff were on the ground at Oceti Sakowin camp from its inception in April 2016 to the final days in February, 2017. Daniel is now heading a legal team representing Chase Iron Eyes and others facing felony charges related to the #NoDAPL movement. Much of Danny's time is spent in Bismarck, North Dakota, prepping for the trials this summer. To learn more about the work of Lakota People's Law Project, visit www.lakoktalaw.org

'The Peoples Advocate,' the autobiography of American Constitutional Trial Attorney Daniel Sheehan, is now available through our online store! Sheehan traces his personal journey from his working-class roots through Harvard Law School and his initial career in private practice. His early disenchantment led to his return for further study at Harvard Divinity School, and rethinking the nature of his career. Eventually his role as President and Chief Trial Counselor for the famous Washington, DC-based Christic Institute would help define his role as America's preeminent cause lawyer.

In The Peoples Advocate, Sheehan details “the inside story” of over a dozen historically significant American legal cases of the 20th Century, all of which he litigated. The remarkable cases covered in the book include both The Pentagon Papers Case in 1971 and The Watergate Burglary Case in 1973. In addition, Sheehan served as the Chief Attorney on The Karen Silkwood Case in 1976, which revealed the CIA's Israeli Desk had been smuggling 98% bomb-grade plutonium to the State of Israel and to Iran. In 1984, he was the Chief Trial Counsel on The American Sanctuary Movement Case, establishing the right of American church workers to provide assistance to Central American political refugees fleeing Guatemalan and Salvadorian “death squads.” His involvement with the sanctuary movement ultimately led to Sheehan's famous Iran/Contra Federal Civil Racketeering Case against the Reagan/Bush Administration, which he investigated, initiated, filed, and then litigated. The resulting “Iran/Contra Scandal” nearly brought down that Administration, leading Congress to consider the impeachment of over a dozen of the top-ranking officials of the Reagan/Bush Administration.

The Peoples Advocate is the “real story” of these and many other historic American cases, told from the unique point of view of a central lawyer.

The monthly "Saturday With Sheehan" is sponsored by www.ETLetsTalk.com and Kosta Makreas. This webinar from January 13 has an update from the Dakota Access Pipeline actions and Q&A from regular attendees, mostly concerning UFO research. Sheehan was one of the rare people to be allowed access to the U.S. Operation Bluebook information. Sheehan is also General Counsel for the Disclosure Project.

2-3:30 Rick Jarrow, "The Yoga of Work" Part 1 of 2
'Strategies for Right Livelihood from the World's Wisdom Traditions'


Why do you work? What motivates you? Outside of our cultural perspective, and beyond our market economy, these questions have many answers. On 'The Yoga of Work,' Dr. Rick Jarow, founder of the national anti career workshops, immerses you in a lic-changing process for finding work that is your authentic personal expression and contribution to the world.


Dr. Jarow, a Fullbright scholar and authority on career and spirituality, asks the hard questions about work that we all need to answer. Am I afraid to quit my job? Is it my true calling, or a way to pay the bills? am I really seeking my 'dream job' or is there something else missing from my life? Looking to eight other world cultures, he shares the most useful teachings about work and spirit from India, Native America, China, Africa, and other regions of the world. With special meditations, Dr. Jarow helps you open to the meaningful work you are supposed to do, where you are supposed to do it. With this destination comes the inner freedom that is the true heart of right livelihood.


In the 'Baghdad Gita,' sometimes called the 'gospel' of India, yoga is described as 'skill in action.' 'The Yoga of Work' is the first cross-cultural guide to putting your values, skills, and spirit to work for the things you believe in most.


Rick Jarow is a professor of history of religious studies at Vassar College, a former Mellon Fellow in the Humanities in Columbia University and a practicing career consultant. His popular anti career workshop, which has internationally, is based on years of research and practice with lineage holders in both Eastern and Western wisdom traditions. Dr. Jarow is the author of 'In Search of the Sacred: A Pilgrimage to Holy Places,' and 'Creating the Work You Love: Courage, Commitment, and Career' and 'Alchemy of Abundance: Using the Energy of Desire to Manifest Yur Highest Vsion, Power, and Purpose.'

12-1 Vaccine Update
"The CDC, Vaccination, and the Deep State"
by Richard Gale and Gary Null
Transcript: http://prn.fm/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Politicalization%20of%20Vaccines.pdf
(Progressive Radio Network, January 21, 2018) http://prn.fm





1-1:30 Norma Field, "Where Are the People in the Nuclear Age?"
In the annals of nuclear accidents Fukushima has a special place. In Chernobyl the government opted to remove the 116,000 people living around the power plant. In Fukushima there is an ongoing effort to remove the contamination and to bring the 154,000 evacuees back. The Japanese government claims the effort is successful – independent researchers have serious doubts.

Admittedly the cleanup so far reached only 5 percent of Fukushima province and the only published data on the status of radioactive substances come from independent researchers. They find that contamination returned to cleaned up areas via wind, rain and traffic.

Norma Field is an author and professor emeritus of East Asian studies at the University of Chicago. She has taught Premodern Japanese Poetry and Prose, and Gender Studies. She is a frequent visitor to Japan where she was born in 1947.

Norma Field spoke for NEIS on December 2, 2017. The Nuclear Energy Information Service, NEIS, had invited her and Arnie Gundersen to call attention to the plight of people who suffer the consequences of radiation. From TUC Radio, 1 (707) 463-2654, www.tucradio.org



1:30-2 Arnie Gunderson, "Where Are the People in the Nuclear Age?

On December 2, 2017 the University of Chicago celebrated the 75th anniversary of the first nuclear chain reaction that led to the building of the atomic bomb and the nuclear power industry. The physicist Leo Szilard said at the time that by his and Enrico Fermi’s invention universal death had come into the world. Today critics of the 2017 anniversary say that the lectures and events were biased in favor of nuclear weapons and nuclear power and even insulting to radiation victims as they culminated in fireworks in the shape of a mushroom cloud. The Nuclear Energy Information Service, NEIS, called attention to the plight of people who suffer the consequences of radiation. Dave Kraft of NEIS introduces the first speaker, Fairewinds Energy Education’s Arnie Gundersen.

Gundersen talks about his trips to Japan to collect dirt samples following the nuclear reactor explosions at Fukushima and his work with Japanese citizens who learn to collect and analyze samples. Gundersen finds to this day serious contamination up to 300 miles from Fukushima – even in areas that have been declared safe to live. He describes the terrible social pressure placed on mothers to return, with their children, to communities contaminated with radioactive particles.

He speaks of doctors under order from the Japanese government to diagnose the common effects of radiation as caused by stress. And he reveals that the NRC knew about the scale of the radiological contamination days after the meltdowns, describing the whole province of Fukushima as a contaminated zone. He also reveals that a stadium inside Fukushima province will be hosting the baseball competitions at the 2020 Olympics.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #988 - Hindutva Fascism, Part 1: The Assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, Part 1

In previous programs, we have analyzed the Hindutva (Hindu nationalist) fascist character of the RSS and its political front the BJP, the party of current Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In past discussions of the RSS and BJP, we have noted the following:

1.-Modi’s political fortunes were boosted with support and apparent financing from Pierre Omidyar, who also helped finance the rise of the OUN/B fascists in Ukraine.
2.-Modi and his BJP are viewed with great favor by Breitbart kingpin, former Trump campaign manager and adviser Steve Bannon. A number of Trump’s business associates in India are associated with the BJP.
3.-Bernie Sanders’ prospective Vice-Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard helped arrange the details for Modi’s American visit and is networked with the RSS.
4.-Under Modi, anti-Muslim violence has dramatically accelerated, while free speech has been attenuated. BJP members have celebrated Gandhi’s murder.

An entity patterned after Mussolini’s Blackshirts, the RSS was the organization that spawned the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi.

Fascist organizations generally demonize a “malevolent other,” in the case of the RSS, it was India’s large Muslim population. (Before gaining independence, India and the modern nations of Pakistan and Bangladesh were part of one large British colony.

The disturbing facts concerning Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination at the hands of the RSS and its ideological leader V.D. Savarkar was related by James Douglass in “Gandhi and the Unspeakable”. (Douglass is also the author of JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters–a book we have used on numerous occasions.)

2-3 Trita Parsi , "The Iran Deal"
Program #PART002. Recorded in Denver, CO on October 04, 2017.

The self-styled deal maker is a deal breaker when it comes to the historic agreement limiting Iranian uranium enrichment in return for the lifting of sanctions. Trump refused to certify Iranian compliance and passed the ball to Congress which now must decide. But the UN monitoring agency has determined that Tehran is adhering to the conditions agreed to. Does the U.S. have evidence indicating otherwise? Why is Trump now abrogating the deal and insulting Iran as “a rogue state.” Iran, once in Washington’s hip pocket under the Shah, broke away with its 1979 Islamic Revolution. The U.S. has been hostile ever since. If the deal collapses why would any country, say North Korea, enter into an agreement with Washington? It changes what has been negotiated post-facto. In this case, the old saw applies, If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Trita Parsi is the president of the National Iranian American Council. He is the author of Treacherous Alliance: The Secret Dealings of Iran, Israel and the United States, A Single Roll of the Dice and Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran and the Triumph of Diplomacy.

2-3 "From the Vault,"
Science Fiction Legend Philip K. Dick (poor sound quality)


This interview was conducted from Philip K. Dick s Southern California home in 1976 at a time when Science Fiction was considered by Publishers the lowest form of Literature.



Today, with the success of such Science Fiction franchises as Star Trek, Star Wars and others, it s hard to imagine a time when the Best Science Fiction writer in the field would struggle to have his novel published.
Since Philip K. Dick s death in 1982, fourteen of his novels and short stories have been made into films including Harrison Ford in Blade Runner, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Total Recall (remade with Colin Farrell), Tom Cruise in Minority Report and Matt Damen in the Adjustment Bureau.


His 1953 short story King of the Elves slated for a 2016 release.
Not surprisingly this very interview is in the special features section on the DVD of Philip's A Scanner Darkly starring Keanu Reeves.

You are in for a treat today. This conversation between Mike Hodel and Philip K. Dick is a real insider's peak into the mind of a great visionary, who battled for decades to get his ideas out to the world.
Philip K. Dick also pulls back the curtain to expose the reality of a science fiction writer dealing with an unsympathetic Literary world. He calls out both Harlan Ellison (who took over as host of Hour 25 when Mike Hodel passed) and Kurt Vonnegut for never embracing the Science Fiction genre.


Finally we present a clip from Philip's 1956 NBC Science fiction radio Drama The Colony.

2:30-3 "The Evolution of Organic" by Mark Kitchell



A new film on the history of organic agriculture told by those who built the movement

After WWII industrial, chemical agriculture almost erased the memory of farming and gardening as practiced for millennia. Even before the 1960s back to the land movement put out a flamboyant reminder for safe foodfree from oil based fertilizers and insecticides individual, unknown farmers and organizations preserved the ancient heritage.

Director and writer Mark Kitchell, best known for his movies: 'Berkeley in the Sixties' and his environmental film 'A Fierce Green Fire' decided to document the many sources for the Evolution of Organic. The film is going into distribution in early 2018.

Kitchell’s goal was to cover the range of practices and ideals that inspired the resistance to chemical agriculture, from Alan Chadwick to Rachel Carson to Rudolf Steiner’s Biodynamic philosophy. And the film eventually brings the history forward to today where organics in some ways reached their own production and distribution of scale, while other small scale farmers protect their specialties and local neighbor to neighbor support systems.

The film is 86 minutes long and this program presents ca 25 minutes of intriguing clips across generations. The narrator is Frances Mc Dormand.

The web site for the film is http://evolutionoforganic.com/

From TUC Radio, 1 (707) 463-2654, http://www.tucradio.org



3-3:30 Evolution of Organic at the Grange

Community screening of the film by Mark Kitchell – In November 2017 Mark Kitchell brought his new documentary film, Evolution of Organic, to the Willits Little Lake Grange in Northern California. It’s a new film on the history of organic agriculture told by those who built the movement. Willits and the surrounding county of Mendocino have a rich tradition of organics and everybody in the audience was either a happy consumer of local food or a farmer/gardener themselves.


Gloria and Stephen Decater and Ruthie King are among those local farmer/gardeners and in addition they were important participants in the movie, Evolution of Organic. The Decaters began as students of Alan Chadwick’s in Santa Cruz, and founded in 1973 the Live Power Community Farm in Round Valley in Mendocino County.


It is a 50-acre, solar electric and horse-powered, certified biodynamic farm. Four acres are devoted to an intensive vegetable garden. The rest of the farm is used to grow home orchard fruits and field and forage crops for hay, grain, and pasture. Animals on the Live Power Community Farm include draft horses, dairy and beef cows, feeder pigs, sheep, and laying hens.


Ruthie King is Director of Operations and Livestock Manager at the Grange Farm School on Ridgewood Ranch – where she lives. She is also the Representative of the Mendocino Farmer’s Guild and Overseer of the Little Lake Grange.


After the screening of the film they came forward to comment and answer questions. Curiously this particular audience asked many questions about two founding personalities of the organic movement and the Philosophy behind it who were no longer alive when the film was made: Alan Chadwick and Rudolf Steiner.


Alan Chadwick was an English master gardener, and a leading innovator of organic farming techniques based on Biodynamic and French Intensive gardening practice. He was a student of Rudolf Steiner’s. Steiner, who died in March 1925 was an Austrian philosopher, social reformer, architect and agriculturalist. He founded a number of schools, the first of which was known as the Waldorf school, which later evolved into a worldwide school network. He also founded a system of organic agriculture, now known as biodynamic agriculture, which was one of the very first forms of modern organic farming.


The film: Evolution of Organic by Mark Kitchell is going into distribution in early 2018. Kitchell also introduced the writer Kim Bancroft who used transcripts of the many practitioners of organics. She edited them into essays, preserving material that was impossible to fit into the 86 minute film.


Director and writer Mark Kitchell is best known for his movies: Berkeley in the Sixties and his environmental film A Fierce Green Fire. The web site for the film is http://evolutionoforganic.com/


I recorded this program at the Willits Little Lake Grange on November 17, 2017.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #987 - Walkin' the Snake at Breitbart and You Tube"


Continuing our long-running analysis of the realization of the Nazi methodology expressed in “Serpent’s Walk,” we further develop Breitbart’s achievements in that regard, as well as underscoring how YouTube has evolved in that same manner.


The back cover of “Serpent’s Walk” sums up the essence of the tome: ” . . . It assumes that Hitler’s warrior elite – the SS – didn’t give up their struggle for a White World when they lost the Second World War. Instead their survivors went underground and adopted some of the tactics of their enemies: they began building their economic muscle and buying into the opinion-forming media. A century after the war they are ready to challenge the democrats and Jews for the hearts and minds of White Americans, who have begun to have their fill of government-enforced multi-culturalism and ‘equality.’ . . .”


Key to the success achieved by both Breitbart and YouTube “alt-right” personalities is networking. At Breitbart, the skillful, adroit Milo Yiannopoulos served as a point person for a coterie of white supremacists and anti-Semites while couching the views they espouse in a careful, rhetorically ambiguous manner deflective of overt criticism. At YouTube, regular personalities with their own shows and content host other, more overtly extremist guests and channel viewers to the more extreme sites through that exposure.


BuzzFeed has a long piece based on a cache of leaked emails that describe behind-the-scenes efforts at Breitbart to mainstream the “Alt Right” neo-Nazis. This story firms up analysis of Breitbart as a white nationalist publication run by neo-Nazis for the purpose of mainstreaming neo-Nazi ideals.


Those efforts primarily revolved around Milo Yiannopoulos, who is:


Tasked with reaching out to “Alt Right” figures.
Getting comments from them about what the “Alt Right” was all about.
Then, later getting feedback from them about the planned articles before they were published.
It was clearly a group effort. Those efforts included Andrew ‘the weev’ Auernheimer, Curtis Yarvin (the founder of the “Dark Enlightenment” movement), and Devin Saucier, a neo-Nazi Yiannopoulos describes as his best friend.


Of primary interest here is the cunning exercised by Yiannopoulos, Bannon et al in parsing just what they can get away with doing and what they must avoid. Auerenheimer, for example, was excluded a Yiannopoulos podcast after being vetted by Breitbart managment.


The emails included back and forths between Yiannopoulos and Breitbart editors about whether or not the publication was getting too openly friendly with the Nazis, with Yiannopoulos being told at one point that it was fine to use a “shekels” joke but “you can’t even flirt with OKing gas chamber tweets.”


Other points of information include: Curtis Yarvin’s statement that he was “coaching” Peter Thiel on politics; How the two Yiannopoulos passwords found in the emails were “a password that began with the word Kristall”, and “LongKnives1290,” references to Kristallnacht and the Night of the Long Knives;”


Noteworthy, also, is the financial power of the Mercer interests, who have successfully rattled legal sabers against media outlets who have tarred Yiannopoulos with the racist brush.


Alt-right YouTube hosts also employ networking, inviting ideologically extreme guests to participate on their programs, presenting views more inflammatory than those normally aired on the netcasts. The extremist guests then receive a significant bump-up in traffic from their appearances.

2-3 Jonathan Heawood, John Pilger "Propagana, Facts & Fake News" Part II




We live in an era of fake news. Fabricated reports go viral on social media. Totally false stories are concocted then tweeted and retweeted. Fantastical theories and wild claims are circulated in cyberspace. It's as Orwell says in 1984, "The lie became truth." There is a lot of fire and fury inflaming the news cycle. The term fake news is an all-purpose smear, used by the president and his supporters to deride and dismiss reporting they don’t like. A recent study found that Facebook was by far the platform through which people used to get to a fake news site. The report also noted that older, less educated people were particularly susceptible to fake news. Are facts up for grabs? How are we to navigate the mine laden waters of propaganda and fake news?




Jonathan Haewood is the founder and director of IMPRESS, an independent press regulator in the United Kingdom. He has previously worked as a journalist and human rights campaigner, and he is a former director of English PEN. He has written on free speech and regulation for various publications.


John Pilger is an internationally renowned journalist and documentary filmmaker. Born in Australia, he has long been based in London. He has twice been selected as Journalist of the Year. His award-winning documentaries include Palestine is Still the Issue and The War on Democracy. He is the author of The New Rulers of the World and Freedom Next Time.

"Power Struggle: The Unstoppable Rise of the Clean Energy Era"


Today in the fossil fuel-induced age of escalating climate disruption, the joker in the deck is the climate imperative to transition rapidly off fossil fuels worldwide. Clean energy has reached the proverbial tipping point – and the smart money is hot on the trail of the clean energy revolution. Entrepreneur and visionary change-maker Danny Kennedy says clean energy not only makes dollars, it makes sense, and this literal power struggle could take us from energy monopoly to energy democracy.

Metaphysics therefore lies repressed in the unconscious of most psychotherapists, with the result that psychiatry, in particular, is unwittingly influenced by 19th Century Mythologies." (AW)

MEET OUR (SORT OF) NEW GENERAL MANAGER!!!!
KPFK will now embark in the untried and strange experiment of having a manager that understands the station and radio and KPFK. Anyel can even drop his phone and computer and pick up a wrench or screwdriver when needed. The staff is exultant.

Anyel Zuberi Fields to be Next KPFK General Manager
Fields returns to KPFK to lead Pacifica's Los Angeles area station


(Los Angeles) - Pacifica's Interim Executive Director Bill Crosier announced today that Anyel Zuberi Fields will return to KPFK, 90.7FM, as the next General Manager of the station, effective on or around Jan. 29, 2018. "I am very happy that Mr. Fields is coming back to lead the staff and volunteers at KPFK", Crosier said. "Christine Blosdale has been a wonderful interim GM for almost a year, but she declined to apply for the permanent GM position. She desires to be best utilized by the station and the network as a major fundraiser during fund drives and special events."


Fields said, "I'm excited about this opportunity to work for KPFK, Pacifica, its members, and listeners. It is my hope and determination to contribute to a prosperous future for KPFK."


Fields has over 6 years of commercial radio experience, was an interim General Manager at KPFK for a year starting in mid-2014, and was the Operations Director at KPFK for 8 years before that. Crosier said "I'm excited that we were able to bring back Mr. Fields, with his extensive knowledge of how KPFK works, and about its staff and volunteers and listeners. He has so much enthusiasm and great ideas for increasing listenership and membership and donations, while making sure that KPFK remains the place on the dial for independent news, music, culture, and public affairs that you can't hear anywhere else in southern California."

MONDAY NIGHT, JANUARY 15

12-1 The Execution of Martin Luther King


More secrecy surrounds the murder of Martin Luther King than even that of the Kennedys. Most people still believe that James Earl Ray, who never even had a trial, was the lone assassin. Dr. William Pepper, who became Ray's lawyer, has uncovered evidence of the involvement of the Memphis police department, the US government and even the US Army in a plot to kill one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century. His book: 'An Act of State, The Execution of Martin Luther King' represents a quarter century of detective and legal work.

In a moving turn of circumstance and historic coincidence, Bill Pepper, who today is an author and acclaimed lawyer who practices international law from London and convenes a seminar on interna- tional human rights at Oxford University, is the same Bill Pepper, who as a young man went to Vietnam as a reporter. He returned with photos of children burned by napalm that shocked the world.


Martin Luther King saw those photos in Ramparts Magazine in early 1967. Witnesses say that he wept as he looked at them. He asked to meet the young man who had taken them and thus began a friendship between Martin Luther King and Bill Pepper and the King family that has now lasted over 50 years.


This program presents Pepper's detailed, decade long investigative work of the crime scene around the Lorraine Motel and his discovery of the identity of the person who received the murder weapon from King's assassin and disposed of it.
His work also led to the identity of a second group of people at the crime scene. An Alpha One 84 team was in Memphis on the day of the assassination.
Bill Pepper spoke at a San Francisco bookstore in February of 2003.
William Pepper is an acclaimed lawyer who practices international law in London. His book by Verso is: AN ACT OF STATE, The Execution of Martin Luther King. For more information:

1:30-3:30 Homeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century: An Interview with Dana Ullman (1989)

Now that the FDA has found its 'safe' opioid drugs are so 'safe,' giving eternal rest to thousands of Americans, they are again attacking Homeopathics: see http://www.anh-usa.org/fda-all-homeopathic-drugs-illegal/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=fcfcdcfa-b0c1-4135-953a-7faa108ec1ad

Here is an interview recorded live in 1989 that I had with Dana Ullman of Homeopathic Educational Services. The criticism of the history, theory, and practical applications of Homeopathic Medicine. (I might add that one of the great debts I owe to KPFK is my first hearing about Homeopathics at 90.7.)

DANA ULLMAN, MPH, CCH, is one of America's leading advocates for homeopathy. He has authored 10 books, including 'The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy,' 'Homeopathy A-Z,' 'Homeopathic Medicines for Children and Infants,' 'Discovering Homeopathy,' and (the best-selling) 'Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines' (with Stephen Cummings, MD). Dana also created an e-course How to Use a Homeopathic Medicine Kit which integrates 80 short videos (averaging 15 minutes) with his famous ebook that is a continually growing resource to 300+ clinical studies published in peer-review medical journals testing homeopathic medicines. This ebook combines the descriptions of these studies with practical clinical information on how to use homeopathic medicines for 100+ common ailments. This ebook is entitled 'Evidence Based Homeopathic Family Medicine,' and it is an invaluable resource. Dana has been certified in classical homeopathy by the leading organization in the U.S. for professional homeopaths.


He is the founder of Homeopathic Educational Services, America's leading resource center for homeopathic books, tapes, medicines, software, and correspondence courses. Homeopathic Educational Services has co-published over35 books on homeopathy with North Atlantic Books.
Dana writes a regular column for the wildly popular website, www.huffingtonpost.com Homeopathic Educational Services, (510) 649-0294. http://www.homeopathic.com

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JANUARY 17

12-1 Dave Emory,, "For the Record #986 - 'Walkin' the Snake with Breitbart" Part 3

This program details the process of mainstreaming "Alt Right" neo-Nazis. As we has been discussed before, this has been underway at Breitbart for some time. This analysis is presented against the background of our decades-long discussion of the Nazi tract Serpent's Walk. The back cover of that book sums up the essence of the tome: " . . . It assumes that Hitler's warrior elite - the SS - didn't give up their struggle for a White world when they lost the Second World War. Instead their survivors went underground and adopted some of their tactics of their enemies: they began building their economic muscle and buying into the opinion-forming media. A century after the war they are ready to challenge the democrats and Jews for the hearts and minds of White Americans, who have begun to have their fill of government-enforced multi-culturalism and 'equality.' . . ."


BuzzFeed has a long piece based on a cache of leaked emails that describe behind-the-scenes efforts at Breitbart to mainstream the "Alt Right" neo-Nazis. This story firms up analysis of Breitbart as a white nationalist publication run by neo-Nazis for the purpose of mainstreaming neo-Nazi ideals.


Those efforts primarily revolved around Milo Yiannopoulos, who is:


1.-Tasked with reaching out to "Alt Right" figures.
2.-Getting comments from them about what the "Alt Right" was all about.
3.-Then, later getting feedback from them about the planned articles before they were published.


It was clearly a group effort. Those efforts included Andrew 'the weev' Auernheimer, Curtis Yarvin (the founder of the "Dark Enlightenment" movement), and Devin Saucier, a neo-Nazi Yiannopoulos describes as his best friend.


Of primary interest here is the cunning exercised by Yiannopoulos, Bannon et al in parsing just what they can get away with doing and what they must avoid. " . . . . By Yiannopoulos's own admission, maintaining a sufficiently believable distance from overt racists and white nationalists was crucial to the machine he had helped Bannon build. . . .'Thanks re 1488,' Yiannopoulos responded. . . .'I have been struggling with this. I need to stay, if not clean, then clean enough.'"


The emails included back and forths between Yiannopoulos and Breitbart editors about whether or not the publication was getting too openly friendly with the Nazis, with Yiannopoulos being told at one point that it was fine to use a "shekels" joke but "you can't even flirt with OKing gas chamber tweets."


Program Highlights Include:


1.-Curtis Yarvin's statement that he was "coaching" Peter Thiel on politics.
2.-How the two Yiannopoulos passwords found in the emails were "a password that began with the word Kristall", and "LongKnives1290".
3.-How the formidable economic power of the Mercer family serves as a legal intimidation factor for anyone labeling Yiannopoulos as a racist or Nazi.

We live in an era of fake news. Fabricated reports go viral on social media. Totally false stories are concocted then tweeted and retweeted. Fantastical theories and wild claims are circulated in cyberspace. It's as Orwell says in 1984, "The lie became truth." There is a lot of fire and fury inflaming the news cycle. The term fake news is an all-purpose smear, used by the president and his supporters to deride and dismiss reporting they don't like. A recent study found that Facebook was by far the platform through which people used to get to a fake news site. The report also noted that older, less educated people were particularly susceptible to fake news. Are facts up for grabs? How are we to navigate the mine laden waters of propaganda and fake news?

Julian Assange, journalist, activist and computer programmer is the founder of WikiLeaks, the whistle-blowing website. WikiLeaks collects and shares confidential information on an international scale. He sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012 to escape allegations of sexual assault. Those charges have since been dropped. Nevertheless, he believes that if he leaves the embassy he will be nabbed by the U.S. and prosecuted for publishing thousands of classified documents made available by Chelsea Manning. In 2016, his work again drew enormous attention when WikiLeaks published thousands of emails from U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

We snuck into the Pacifica Archives Vault to grab this historic talk by one of the major driving forces for the legalization of marijuana, and a promoter of hemp as a substitute for conventional sources of paper, fiber, and fuel. He explains that although he was a conservative Republican, he pointed toward the hypocrisy of a nation which supports the tobacco industry, uses polluting fuels, and helps in the destruction of the world's rain forests. Jack dedicated his life to legalization and although he didn't live to see it, he was the most outspoken and potent critic and investigator for it and he did know he was on the winning side. One of his victories was his discovery of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture film "Hemp for Victory" which the Nixon government denied existed - but Jack found it in the Library of Congress through the old fashioned card files. (It can be seen on youtube at

In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon and HeatherAsh talk about bringing our innermost values to our work. They speak on contemporary society's unspoken assumption that we only have value in productivity, and how we can step outside this mindset to recognize our inherent worth. HeatherAsh describes how each of us can stoke our own inner fires, including the little-explored heart and spiritual fires. Finally, Tami and HeatherAsh discuss our "true work" in the world and how to bring a touch of the sacred to everything you do.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #985: Fascism: 2017 European Tour, Part 2"

Beginning our tour in Poland, we note alarming signs of that country descending into fascism, with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim xenophobia on the ideological front burner of the ironically named Law and Justice Party: ” . . . . Tens of thousands of people — many of them young men with crew cuts, but some parents with children, too — flocked to the Polish capital to celebrate Independence Day in a march organized in part by two neo-fascist organizations. They waved white and red Polish flags, they brandished burning torches, and they wore “white power” symbols. They carried banners declaring, ‘Death to enemies of the homeland,’ and screamed, ‘Sieg Heil!’ and ‘Ku Klux Klan!’ . . . .”

The treatment accorded female counter-demonstrators exemplifies the nature of the rally: ” . . . . A dozen incredibly courageous women showed up to protest the march. After mixing with the marchers, they unraveled a long strip of cloth emblazoned with ‘Stop Fascism.’ They were immediately attacked. Their banner was ripped apart. Marchers pushed some of the women to the ground and kicked others. . . .”

At an institutional level, the Law and Justice Party is implementing an Orwellian mockery of its name: ” . . . Ever since the Law and Justice Party won both the presidential and parliamentary elections in 2015, Poland has been undergoing a disturbing political transformation. Law and Justice is an Orwellian name for a party that constantly violates the law, breaks constitutional provisions and is hellbent on subjecting the courts to its control. The party is dismantling the institutional framework of parliamentary democracy piece by piece in order to remove any restraints on the personal power of its leader, Jaroslaw Kaczynski. ‘Prezes,’ the Boss, people call him. . . .”

The xenophobia utilized by the Law and Justice Party is a common element in European and American fascist movements: ” . . . . Two years ago, the party bet that latching onto the refugee crisis in Europe would give it purchase on the votes necessary to win. Its calculation proved entirely correct. One of the first institutions the party hijacked was public television. Law and Justice has turned it into Fox News on steroids, paid for by the taxpayers. It feeds viewers nonstop propaganda about the mounting threat to Poland’s sovereignty from the European Union, specifically in the form of Muslim refugees. Those refugees present a threat to our way of life, the government and the press insist. They will assault our women, they say, and they are carrying infectious diseases to boot. A year ago, a quarter of Poles opposed accepting anyone fleeing the ravages of war in the Middle East; after months of relentless propaganda, 75 percent are now opposed. This year the country has let in only 1,474 asylum seekers, nearly all of them from Russia or Ukraine. . . .”

In Italy, CasaPound recapitulates Italy’s fascist past, in resonance with anti-immigrant xenophobia exhibited by other neo-fascist parties: ” . . . . But CasaPound is winning seats in a handful of towns, and some of its core beliefs — a fondness for Russia and sharp opposition to the European Union, globalization and immigration, which it believes sully the national identity and economy — are increasingly spreading throughout Italy. In Sicily, the new headquarters of Brothers of Italy, a descendant of the post-fascist Italian Social Movement, had the phrase ‘Italians first’ written on the wall during its recent inauguration. Anti-immigration sentiment has grown so popular that the once-secessionist Northern League has dropped the word ‘Northern’ from its name as it looks for inroads to the south. . . .”

Much of our tour is in Ukraine, where the OUN/B fascists are rewriting history...

1-2 The Ralph Nader Radio Hour



Ralph talks to legendary progressive lawyer and former U.S. Attorney General,Ramsey Clark, about the conflicts in the Middle East. And we continue our discussion about the difference between “progressives” and “liberals” and why the distinction is important. Plus more listener questions!



Ramsey Clark is an American lawyer, who was Attorney General of the United States during the Johnson Administration. As Attorney General he was known for his vigorous opposition to the death penalty his aggressive support of civil liberties and civil rights and his dedication in enforcing antitrust provisions. In addition to enforcing school desegregation in the South in the Justice Department under Robert Kennedy, Mr. Clark supervised the drafting of the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act. Since leaving public office Ramsey Clark has led many progressive activism campaigns, including opposition to the War on Terror and he has offered legal defense to controversial figures such as Charles Taylor of Liberia, Slobodan Milosevic, Saddam Hussein and Lyndon LaRouche. He is the founder of The International Action Center, which is committed to building broad-based grassroots actions opposing U.S. wars abroad while fighting racism and economic exploitation of workers at home. He is the author of “The Fire This Time: U.S. War Crimes in the Gulf.” And is the subject of a documentary entitled “Ramsey Clark: A Life of Principal.”



“The most important thing to observe (in Yemen) is the human tragedy that’s not inherent in the circumstances. This is caused by the deliberate action of governments that have goals that don’t give sufficient concern to the wellbeing of the human beings involved. Unless there’s a change in the direction, there’s going to be a continuing human tragedy, a growing human tragedy that will be a stain on our conscience, not to mention the bodies and lives of those that are afflicted.” Ramsey Clark former US Attorney General and humanitarian lawyer




Initially heard on KPFK Saturdays, 10am

2-3 Nancy MacLean "Origins of Radical Right-Wing Power"
Program #MACN001. Recorded in Madison, WI on October 05, 2017.

The history of the anti-government and anti-democratic politics that have transformed the U.S. in recent years is largely obscured from view. The radical right’s agenda includes: suppression of voting rights, privatization of everything from schools to Medicare to Social Security to public lands, elimination of unions and limiting majority rule. Core beliefs also include: there is no problem tax cuts won’t solve and that the best kind of regulation is no regulation. Let industry decide. And the intellectual godfather of this extreme right-wing thinking? Someone you’ve probably never heard of. James McGill Buchanan, a Nobel Prize-winning economist. And the money to promote his ideas comes mostly from billionaire Charles Koch. These ideological positions have moved from beyond the fringe to where they are openly discussed and legislation is proposed. If these forces get their way democracy will be in chains.

Nancy MacLean is Professor of History and Public Policy at Duke University. She is the author of Freedom is Not Enough: The Opening of the American Workplace and Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America.

"Power Struggle: The Unstoppable Rise of the Clean Energy Era"





Today in the fossil fuel-induced age of escalating climate disruption, the joker in the deck is the climate imperative to transition rapidly off fossil fuels worldwide. Clean energy has reached the proverbial tipping point – and the smart money is hot on the trail of the clean energy revolution. Entrepreneur and visionary change-maker Danny Kennedy says clean energy not only makes dollars, it makes sense, and this literal power struggle could take us from energy monopoly to energy democracy.

12-1 Alan Watts, "The Power of Space" Part 4 (concluding)
"Space, which is ordinarily regarded as nothingness, may I'm fact, be our own consciousness -- sensed in the form of an external dimension; and human awe at the vastness of space may be man's astonishment at himself. We reconsider our position as 'insignificant germs on a minute ball of rock, attached to a minor star on the outer fringe of one of the smaller galaxies."
