MONDAY NIGHT, MARCH 26


12-1:15 Saturday with Sheehan (March 17)


The latest in the once a month webinar with Danny Sheehan


This month, Danny presents an update on the (still happening) Dakota Access Pipeline cases and answers questions from the listeners, principally regarding what might/could happen in Washington politics and the possibilities and direction of impeachment of Trump and Pence and the upcoming battle for control of Congress in November between and within the major parties.


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. www.dansheehan.com


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 which continue. To learn more about the work of Lakota People's Law Project, visit 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


These monthly webinars are produced by www.EtLetsTalk.com and the People's Disclosure Movement, "a collective of more than 11,000 peaceful groups & individuals from 100+ countries who meet up once a month, to make coordinated, interactive and united contact with loving and peaceful ET civilizations " - a subject that has fascinated Danny since his childhood and in which he is active in several roles. The coordinator-interviewer is Kosta Makreas

1:15-2:30 Rick Jarow, "The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide"The Inner Path to Finding Your Work in the World'According to the perennial wisdom teachings, your vocation is not a means of survival in the world-it is a pure expression of your life force. Vocation arises, not as a response to external forces, but authentically from within your own body.


To the modern mind, this approach to work sounds radical. But for more than 3,000 years, sacred traditions in the East and West have allowed vocation to serve as a platform for spiritual and material growth. The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide is the first audio curriculum that adapts this classic approach to right livelihood to the challenges unique to our place and time.


Based on the national anti-career workshops taught by Dr. Rick Jarow since 1988, this is the same life-changing program that has helped thousands of frustrated job-seekers open to their intuition, transform their values into action, and answer their true calling-instead of settling for a paycheck.


Traditional career strategies are simply reactions to the job market, Dr. Jarow begins-for example, matching an inventory of skills with the want ads. An anticareer is a manifestation of the unique blueprint for your destiny encoded in your body since birth. The key to this revolutionary approach is your body's chakra system, the seven centers that govern the free flow of prana, or life force, through your body. Through a program of powerful meditations, you gain direct access to your chakras, clearing and aligning them with the energetic forces that make everything in life possible.


You don't have to go out looking for a job, Dr. Jarow says. The job you were born to do will unfold in time, like a tree from a seed, as you let go of self-limiting concepts and open to the energy of creation-with The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide.






Session 6: The Alignment of the Will


The third chakra and directed focus. The Law of Attention. Fire in the belly thought experiment. Why just setting goals isn't enough. Developing a consensus among variouis parts of your being. Trajectory vs. goal. More.






Rick Jarow is a professor of religious studies in Vassar College, a former Melon Fellow at Columbia University and a practicing career counselor. His popular Anti-Career Workshops, which he has taught internationally, are based on years of research and practice encompassing both Eastern and Western Traditions. He is the author of 'In Search of the Sacred' and 'Creating the Work You Love.'

2:30-3:30 "From the Vault,"- 'This History of Feminism' Part 1


Throughout history, women have suffered many injustices in the workplace including unequal wages, unsafe work conditions and predatory sexual harassment from male administrators.


By early 2018, there have been some encouraging steps taken to change this, most notably in Hollywood and politics where courageous women standing up resulted in the exposure to this institutional crisis in workplace safety for women.


On this weeks From The Vault we showcase some of the Feminist efforts throughout history that helped shape the efforts we are seeing today.


First we will play a program from 1982 called Feminism in the 1800s produced in 1982 and featuring author Ellen DuBois who writes about Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Mary Wollstonecraft, Frances Wright and others.


Then we will play the 1998 talk by Angela Davis called Blues Legacies and Black Feminism. Angela Davis traces early blues artists including Gertrude "Ma" Rainy, Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday to illustrate how black women helped shape feminist historical traditions through their music.

1-2:30 "Energy Medicine"


'Subtle Energies, Consciousness, and the New Science of Healing'


Is the human body merely a complex biological machine, or is our health sustained by 'subtle energies' that can be guided for healing? These are the questions that are posed by the field of energy medicine. Since 1990, the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine, the ISSSEEM, has hosted the world's most eminent scholars and practitioners within this revolutionary new medical field. From the effects of bioelectromagnetic energy on the body to the healing effects of prayer to subtle energy practices of other cultures, 'Energy Medicine' gathers the best of ISSSEEM's celebrated conferences into one thought-provoking reference set. Twelve in depth and authoritative presentations will be presented here over the next several weeks.


Talk 7 of 12: Beverly Rubik, Ph.D., "Subtle Information in Healing"


Dr. Rubik earned degrees in chemistry and biophysics before founding the Center for Frontier Sciences at Temple University. A popular lecturer, consultant, and respected author, she is listed in the 'Who's Who of Science and Technology.'


Talk 8: Robert O. Becker, M.D., "Bioelectromagnetics and Energy Medicine"


Robert Becker is the original researcher and acknowledged authority on the effects of electromagnetic fields on living organisms. His book, 'The Body Electric,' documents both positive effects of electricity - such as limb regeneration - and the health dangers of common electromagnetic fields.

2:30-3:30 Margaret Wheatley: "Warriors for the Human Spirit"


Margaret Wheatley is a writer and management consultant who draws upon systems analysis, chaos theory, and other diverse fields of study to inform her work. She is the author of 'Leadership and the New Science' and 'Who Do We Choose to Be?,' among others. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon talks with Margaret about the cycles of life and history, especially as they apply to the chaotic contemporary world. Margaret emphasizes that we need to see our present moment with clear eyes, even if doing so might court despair. Tami and Margaret speak on the need to create "islands of sanity" within our communities and what it means to become a warrior for the human spirit. Finally, they discuss what it means to be such a warrior without engaging in the same fear and anger we are trying to fight. From Sounds True 'Insights at the Edge' series.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, MARCH 28






12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #996: -- "Civilization’s Twilight: Update on Technocratic Fascism"


Updating our ongoing analysis of what Mr. Emory calls “technocratic fascism,” we examine how existing technologies are neutralizing and/or rendering obsolete foundational elements of our civilization and democratic governmental systems.


We begin our description by referencing a vitally important article by David Golumbia. ” . . . . Such tech no cratic beliefs are wide spread in our world today, espe cially in the enclaves of dig i tal enthu si asts, whether or not they are part of the giant corporate-digital leviathan. Hack ers (‘civic,’ ‘eth i cal,’ ‘white’ and ‘black’ hat alike), hack tivists, Wik iLeaks fans [and Julian Assange et al–D. E.], Anony mous ‘mem bers,’ even Edward Snow den him self walk hand-in-hand with Face book and Google in telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con tribute to the polit i cal world, but that the polit i cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it: the polit i cal world is bro ken, they appear to think (rightly, at least in part), and the solu tion to that, they think (wrongly, at least for the most part), is for pro gram mers to take polit i cal mat ters into their own hands. . . . [Tor co-creator] Din gle dine asserts that a small group of soft ware devel op ers can assign to them selves that role, and that mem bers of demo c ra tic poli ties have no choice but to accept them hav ing that role. . . .”


Beginning with a chilling opinion piece in “The New York Times,” we note that technological development threatens to super-charge the Big Lies that drive our world. As anyone who saw the file Star Wars film “Rogue One” knows, the technology required to create a nearly life-like computer-generated videos of a real person is already a reality. Once the province of movie studios and other firms with millions to spend, the technology is now available for download for free.


” . . . . In 2016 Gareth Edwards, the director of the Star Wars film ‘Rogue One,’ was able to create a scene featuring a young Princess Leia by manipulating images of Carrie Fisher as she looked in 1977. Mr. Edwards had the best hardware and software a $200 million Hollywood budget could buy. Less than two years later, images of similar quality can be created with software available for free download on Reddit. That was how a faked video supposedly of the actress Emma Watson in a shower with another woman ended up on the website Celeb Jihad. . . .”


The technology has already rendered obsolete selective editing such as that performed by James O’Keefe: ” . . . . as the novelist William Gibson once said, ‘The street finds its own uses for things.’ So do rogue political actors. The implications for democracy are eye-opening. The conservative political activist James O’Keefe has created a cottage industry manipulating political perceptions by editing footage in misleading ways. In 2018, low-tech editing like Mr. O’Keefe’s is already an anachronism: Imagine what even less scrupulous activists could do with the power to create ‘video’ framing real people for things they’ve never actually done. One harrowing potential eventuality: Fake video and audio may become so convincing that it can’t be distinguished from real recordings, rendering audio and video evidence inadmissible in court. . . .”


After highlighting a story about AI-generated “deepfake” pornography with people’s faces superimposed on others’ bodies in pornographic layouts, we note how robots have altered our political and commercial landscapes, through cyber technology: ” . . . . Robots are getting better, every day, at impersonating humans. When directed by opportunists, malefactors and sometimes even nation-states, they pose a particular threat to democratic societies, which are premised on being open to the people. Robots posing as people have become a menace. . . . In coming years, campaign finance limits will be (and maybe already are) evaded by robot armies posing as ‘small’ donors. And actual voting is another obvious target — perhaps the ultimate target. . . .”


Before the actual replacement of manual labor by robots, devices to technocratically “improve”–read “coercively engineer” workers are patented by Amazon and have been used on workers in some of their facilities. ” . . . . What if your employer made you wear a wristband that tracked your every move, and that even nudged you via vibrations when it judged that you were doing something wrong? What if your supervisor could identify every time you paused to scratch or fidget, and for how long you took a bathroom break? What may sound like dystopian fiction could become a reality for Amazon warehouse workers around the world. The company has won two patents for such a wristband. . . .”


For some U.K Amazon warehouse workers, the future is now: ” . . . . Max Crawford, a former Amazon warehouse worker in Britain, said in a phone interview, ‘After a year working on the floor, I felt like I had become a version of the robots I was working with.’ He described having to process hundreds of items in an hour — a pace so extreme that one day, he said, he fell over from dizziness. ‘There was no time to go to the loo,’ he said, using the British slang for toilet. ‘You had to process the items in seconds and then move on. If you didn’t meet targets, you were fired.’






“He worked back and forth at two Amazon warehouses for more than two years and then quit in 2015 because of health concerns, he said: ‘I got burned out.’ Mr. Crawford agreed that the wristbands might save some time and labor, but he said the tracking was ‘stalkerish’ and feared that workers might be unfairly scrutinized if their hands were found to be ‘in the wrong place at the wrong time.’ ‘They want to turn people into machines,’ he said. ‘The robotic technology isn’t up to scratch yet, so until it is, they will use human robots.’ . . . .”


Some tech workers, well placed at R & D pacesetters and giants such as Facebook and Google have done an about-face on the impact of their earlier efforts and are now struggling against the misuse of the technologies they helped to launch:


” . . . . A group of Silicon Valley technologists who were early employees at Facebook and Google, alarmed over the ill effects of social networks and smartphones, are banding together to challenge the companies they helped build. . . . ‘The largest supercomputers in the world are inside of two companies — Google and Facebook — and where are we pointing them?’ Mr. [Tristan] Harris said. ‘We’re pointing them at people’s brains, at children.’ . . . . Mr. [RogerMcNamee] said he had joined the Center for Humane Technology because he was horrified by what he had helped enable as an early Facebook investor. ‘Facebook appeals to your lizard brain — primarily fear and anger,’ he said. ‘And with smartphones, they’ve got you for every waking moment.’ . . . .”


Transitioning to our next program–updating AI (artificial intelligence) technology as it applies to technocratic fascism–we note that AI machines are being designed to develop other AI’s–“The Rise of the Machine.” ” . . . . Jeff Dean, one of Google’s leading engineers, spotlighted a Google project called AutoML. ML is short for machine learning, referring to computer algorithms that can learn to perform particular tasks on their own by analyzing data. AutoML, in turn, is a machine learning algorithm that learns to build other machine-learning algorithms. With it, Google may soon find a way to create A.I. technology that can partly take the humans out of building the A.I. systems that many believe are the future of the technology industry. . .

1-2 The Ralph Nader Radio Hour


Initially heard on KPFK Saturdays, 10am

2-3 Nomi Prins, 'The Inherently Unstable Economy'


We hear a lot about bulls and bears and the magic of the stock market. The magic is shared by a few. The richest 10 percent own 84 percent of all shares of stock. Remember the days when Republicans prided themselves on being fiscally responsible? Well, they’re long gone. The deficit and the debt are astronomical. The 2008 crash ushered in the deepest recession since the Great Depression. Can it happen again? You bet. Just read the tea leaves. The tax cut just blew a gigantic hole in the budget. The big banks are now sitting on record profits. CEOs are giving themselves huge bonuses. “Draining the swamp?” The economy is led by ex-bankers and Goldman Sachs alumni with the same mentality that led to the previous crash. And there are few checks and balances as deregulators rule government agencies.






This event was presented by the Lannan Foundation.


Nomi Prins is a former Wall Street investment banker turned journalist. She worked at Goldman Sachs and Bear Stearns. Her articles appear in major newspapers and magazines. She is the author of' It Takes a Pillage,' 'All the President Bankers' and 'Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World.'

1-2:30 David Whyte, "Midlife and the Great Unknown"
'Finding Courage and Clarity Through Poetry' Part 2 (concluding)

"In the middle of the road of my life I awoke in a dark wood, where the true way was wholly lost." When you find yourself suddenly without bearings, as Dante Alighieri voiced so well centuries ago, where will you look for guidance?

Throughout the ages, teaches David Whyte, the language of poetry has held a special power to hazard ourselves boldly at the fierce edges of our lives. On Midlife and the Great Unknown, you will engage with poetic imagination as it was meant to be experienced: as your companion and guide for the challenging terrain of midlife. Join this Yorkshire-born poet and bestselling author to explore:

Radical simplification-an invitation to sit in silent reflection and observation
Using your poetic imagination to navigate life's cycles of loss and joy
Honoring who you are right now, including your skills and limitations, and more
The language of poetry can emancipate you into the next phase of your existence, teaches David Whyte. It can help you break through obstacles and give you courage to take necessary risks. Drawing from the wisdom of fellow poets Rainer Maria Rilke, Emily Dickinson, and Seamus Heaney, Whyte invites you to boldly engage in a conversation with the second half of your life on Midlife and the Great Unknown

Part 2 (concluding) A conversation with the unknown future. The deeper wells of emotion. Life at the frontier. Cuycles of loss and joy. Full presence. What is my question? The radical edges of experience.

David Whyte is an internationally recognized poet, prose author, naturalist, and thinker in organizational leadership. He grew up in Yorkshire of an Irish Mother and lives in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. He is the author of six plus books of poetry including 'River Flow' and three bestselling prose books including more recently 'the Three Marriages: Re-imagining Wind, Self, and Relationship."

2:30-3:30 "From the Vault,"
On this episode of From The Vault we present two recording of one of the most influential Woman of the 2nd Wave of Feminism, Kate Millett Kate Millett 1978 & 1990

Kate Millett was born in Minnesota where she received her undergraduate degree, and then mostly made New York her home. Her body of work in art, literature and activism has been instrumental in shaping the 2nd Wave of Feminism. Millet is probably best known for her doctoral thesis turned best-selling book Sexual Politics in 1970.

Millett has written many influential books including 'The Prostitution Papers,' 'Flying,' 'Mother Millet' about her relationship with her Mother and 'The Loony-Bin Trip' about her involuntary Psychiatric care and institutionalization.

Between 2011 and 2013 she has won the Lambda Pioneer Award for Literature , Yoko Ono s Courage Award for the Arts and was inducted into the National Women s Hall of Fame.

Pacifica Radio has been present over the years to capture several important recordings of Kate Millett. In this program we present significant selections from two of these programs.

We begin with the 1978 recording of Kate Millet reflecting on several decades of activism from the pre-Stonewall days to the present of 1978 produced by Helene Rosenbluth. Later we'll hear from Kate Millett in an interview with WBAI host Marillo Murillo at the time of her Loony Bin Trip book release in 1990. But first lets here from Kate Millett the Gay Academic Union conference in November 1978

2:30-3:30 Joanna Macy: "We Belong"

Joanna Macy is an eco-philosopher, activist, and Buddhist scholar who has been at the forefront of movements for social justice and environmentalism for more than five decades. She founded the Work That Reconnects Network and has written many books, including World as Lover, World as Self. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon speaks with Joanna about hope in times of chaos and dissolution, as well as how hope is something we do rather than just feel. They consider apathy as a refusal to face the inevitability of suffering and why the state of the environment can be especially heartbreaking. Finally, Tami and Joanna talk about our relationship with the earth as a natural birthright—one that is actually the source of all our energy and joy.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, MARCH 21


12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #995 - Miscellaneous Articles and Updates"

In FTR #967, we highlighted the Nazi group Atomwaffen, one of whose members was plotting an attack on a nuclear power plant. (The would be nuke terrorist was Brandon Russell, a Florida National Guardsman.)

New articles on the group disclose that they have been responsible for a number of recent murders around the country. More murders should be expected because Atomwaffen produces ISIS-style videos promoting mass neo-Nazi violence designed to sabotage and implode society.

FTR #888 details the work of Glenn Greenwald in running legal interference for the leaderless strategy advocated by the likes of James Mason and the National Alliance. Specifically, Citizen Greenwald freed up the likes of Atomwaffen et al from civil liability for their ISIS-style YouTube exhortations to violence and murder.

In FTR #437, we highlighted counter-culture fascism and the penchant of some to promote fascist outcroppings like the Charles Manson cultists to bohemians. Atomwaffen idolize both James Mason and his Siege newsletter and book, as well as one of Mason’s idols–Charles Manson.

Mason expressed support for the Nazi eugenics and euthanasia program. (We have discussed eugenics and euthanasia in numerous programs, including Miscellaneous Archive Shows M12 and M60, as well as FTR #’s 117, 124, 140, 141, 534, 664, 908, and 909.)

2-3 Joe Allen, "Vietnam"
Program #ALLJ001. Recorded in Chicago, IL on November 24, 2008.

All imperial systems attempt to reinvent the past, engineer history to suit their needs. The United States is no different. Vietnam is a perfect example. A war of aggression was transformed into a "conflict." It was "tragic" and a "mistake." At the other end of the spectrum, the so-called liberal Washington Post called the war a "just cause." That's the range of opinion in describing one of the major atrocities of the 20th century. The sheer savagery of the U.S. attack is forgotten. The war on Vietnam, later extended to Laos and Cambodia, included mass murder from the air and ferocious assaults on the ground. Millions were killed. About the agony and suffering of the victims? Virtually nothing. Reparations? Apologies? No way. And the architects of destruction, the war criminals? Held accountable? Trials? Jail time? Then as now, nothing. This classic from the AR archives marks the 50th anniversary of the My Lai massacre. Historian Jonathan Schell wrote that My Lai, “had come to be the rule, and not the exception, in our conduct of the war.”

Joe Allen is a contributor to the International Socialist Review and an activist in peace and justice movements. He is the author of "Vietnam: the (last) war the U.S. lost." From Alternative Radio, 1 (800) 444-1977, www.alternativeradio.org

12-1:30 Rick Jarow, "The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide"
The Inner Path to Finding Your Work i the World'
Sessions 3 & 4

According to the perennial wisdom teachings, your vocation is not a means of survival in the world-it is a pure expression of your life force. Vocation arises, not as a response to external forces, but authentically from within your own body.
To the modern mind, this approach to work sounds radical. But for more than 3,000 years, sacred traditions in the East and West have allowed vocation to serve as a platform for spiritual and material growth. The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide is the first audio curriculum that adapts this classic approach to right livelihood to the challenges unique to our place and time.
Based on the national anti-career workshops taught by Dr. Rick Jarow since 1988, this is the same life-changing program that has helped thousands of frustrated job-seekers open to their intuition, transform their values into action, and answer their true calling-instead of settling for a paycheck.
Traditional career strategies are simply reactions to the job market, Dr. Jarow begins-for example, matching an inventory of skills with the want ads. An anticareer is a manifestation of the unique blueprint for your destiny encoded in your body since birth. The key to this revolutionary approach is your body's chakra system, the seven centers that govern the free flow of prana, or life force, through your body. Through a program of powerful meditations, you gain direct access to your chakras, clearing and aligning them with the energetic forces that make everything in life possible.
You don't have to go out looking for a job, Dr. Jarow says. The job you were born to do will unfold in time, like a tree from a seed, as you let go of self-limiting concepts and open to the energy of creation-with The Ultimate Anti-Career Guide.

Session 3 of 12: Abundance Reconsidered
Learning to work from a sense of abundance. The Japanese robot story. The first chakra: seat of scarcity/abundance. Cultivating 'root energy.' Positive imaging exercise. Developing a practice for flow of power and alignment. Work on relationship. Feeling, family, and fate. The second chakra: passion. More.

Session 4 of 12: Challenges and Obstacles.
Creative ways to deal with rejection and catastrophes. Teachings from Hilda Charlton and the shamans. The obstacle as ally. The example of Paul Hawken. Office politics and family dynamics. What occurs beneath the world of intention. Taking an honest inventory of our desires. 'What if" exercise. More

Rick Jarow is a professor of religious studies in Vassar College, a former Melon Fellow at Columbia University and a practicing career counselor. His popular Anti-Career Workshops, which he has taught internationally, are based on years of research and practice encompassing both Eastern and Western Traditions. He is the author of 'In Search of the Sacred' and 'Creating the Work You Love.'

1:30-3 David Whyte, "Midlife and the Great Unknown"
'Finding Courage and Clarity Through Poetry' Part 1 of 2

"In the middle of the road of my life I awoke in a dark wood, where the true way was wholly lost." When you find yourself suddenly without bearings, as Dante Alighieri voiced so well centuries ago, where will you look for guidance?

Throughout the ages, teaches David Whyte, the language of poetry has held a special power to hazard ourselves boldly at the fierce edges of our lives. On Midlife and the Great Unknown, you will engage with poetic imagination as it was meant to be experienced: as your companion and guide for the challenging terrain of midlife. Join this Yorkshire-born poet and bestselling author to explore:

Radical simplification-an invitation to sit in silent reflection and observation
Using your poetic imagination to navigate life's cycles of loss and joy
Honoring who you are right now, including your skills and limitations, and more
The language of poetry can emancipate you into the next phase of your existence, teaches David Whyte. It can help you break through obstacles and give you courage to take necessary risks. Drawing from the wisdom of fellow poets Rainer Maria Rilke, Emily Dickinson, and Seamus Heaney, Whyte invites you to boldly engage in a conversation with the second half of your life on Midlife and the Great Unknown

Part 1 of 2: Living a Courageous Life. Attempting to get tired of yourself. The antidote to exhaustion is not rest. Radical amplification. Harvesting the gifts of life. A new conversation with reality. Extraordinary transformations.

David Whyte is an internationally recognized poet, prose author, naturalist, and thinker in organizational leadership. He grew up in Yorkshire of an Irish Mother and lives in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. He is the author of six plus books of poetry including 'River Flow' and three bestselling prose books including more recently 'the Three Marriages: Re-imagining Wind, Self, and Relationship."

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, MARCH 14

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #994 - What Was Old Is New Again"

This broadcast recaps material from previous programs, underscoring key points of information from current developments.

Last week, we opened our program with an article from Consortium News about some alarming developments in Ukraine-a piece of legislation approved by the Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) that might augur World War III.

One of the few media outlets that has covered the return to power of the OUN/B's successor fascist organizations in Ukraine, Consortium News was founded and headed by Robert Parry.

Parry passed away last weekend.

Mr. Emory posted the following comment on the Consortium News article about Robert's passing:

A very, very sad occasion. It was my privilege to have interviewed Robert a number of times over the years, including an interview-scheduled days before-that took place on the day he learned of Gary Webb's death.

It was also my privilege to have used many articles from Consortium News in my weekly broadcasts, including, and especially, his reportage about the return to power of the OUN/B successor organizations in Ukraine.

Very few have manifested the courage and integrity to report honestly on those events.

Now, there will be fewer.

Rest in peace, Robert.

Next, we return to the subject of Peter Thiel, of "Team Trump," Facebook and Palantir.

We have covered Peter Thiel in numerous programs, beginning with our warning about him in FTR #718.

Some of the points we have made about him include:

1.-His family background in the Frankfurt (Germany) chemical business. Probably I.G. Farben/Bormann, in that context.
2.-His primary role in Palantir, apparently the maker of the PRISM software at the epicenter of L'Affaire Snowden.
3.-His role as the primary financier of Ron Paul's super PAC. (Paul is an unabashed white supremacist, joined at the hip with David Duke and the neo-4.-Confederate movement. He was the Presidential candidate of choice for Eddie "The Friendly Spook" Snowden and Julian Assange.)
4.-Thiel's networking with movers and shakers from In-Q-Tel, the CIA's high-tech venture capital firm.
5.-Thiel's active anti-immigrant stance.
6.-Thiel's seminal networking with other tech titans and venture capital firms, including some with political and historical tributaries leading back to the apartheid regime in South Africa.

With Thiel among the candidates to head Trump's President's Intelligence Advisory Board, we note that his apocalyptic, anti-Enlightenment ideology draws on, among other influences, Carl Schmitt. Arguably the prime mover behind the German Conservative Revolution, Schmitt was also: ". . . . a Nazi and the Third Reich's preeminent legal theorist. For Thiel, Schmitt is an inspiring throwback to a pre-Enlightenment age, who exalts struggle and insists that the discovery of enemies is the foundation of politics. . ."

There has been a fair amount of buzz about the release of additional, previously classified, documents about the assassination of President Kennedy.

An interesting document came to light in the recent release of files relating to the assassination of JFK. Jack Ruby told an FBI informant to "watch the fireworks" in Dealey Plaza that day.

"Jack Ruby, the man who eventually shot Lee Harvey Oswald, told an FBI informant to 'watch the fireworks' on the day President John F. Kennedy was killed, according to new records the National Archives released Friday. . . . 'The informant stated that on the morning of the assassination, Ruby contacted him and asked if he would 'like to watch the fireworks," an FBI record dated April 6, 1977, says. 'He was with Jack Ruby and standing at the corner of the Postal Annex Building facing the Texas School Book Depository Building at the time of the shooting. . . ."

This might be evaluated against the background of FTR #963, relating-among other things-a reading of Jack Ruby's Warren Commission testimony. (A reading of Ruby's testimony is re-broadcast in this program.)

When interviewed by the Warren Commission, Jack Ruby indicated that he had been part of a conspiracy to kill Kennedy and that he feared for his life. The Warren Commission turned a deaf ear to his desire to go to Washington and "spill the beans."

Gerald Ford (who succeeded Nixon as President and pardoned him of all crimes committed), Leon Jaworski (a Warren Commission counsel who was a director of a CIA domestic funding conduit and who was selected by Nixon to be Watergate Special Prosecutor) and Arlen Specter (another Warren Commission counsel who was Nixon's first choice as his personal defense attorney in the Watergate affair) were present at Ruby's de facto confession.

Warren Commission Counsel J. Lee Rankin is also present at this interview. Nixon first selected J. Lee Rankin to serve as Watergate Special Prosecutor. Rankin was subsequently tabbed to review the Watergate tapes and determine which would be released. Rankin was the Warren Commission's liaison between the commission and both the CIA and the FBI. Rankin was a key proponent of the so-called "Magic Bullet Theory."

We conclude with discussion of another aspect of the JFK assassination.

Jane Mayer's Dark Money has received considerable discussion and media play over the last couple of years. In past discussion of the Koch family, we noted that patriarch Fred Koch worked with Hitler building one of Nazi Germany's most important refineries-one capable of refining the high-octane fuel needed by fighter planes.

In addition, we noted that Fred Koch was one of the first members of the John Birch Society.

Mayer notes that Fred Koch helped finance ads in the wake of the JFK assassination that pinned responsibility for the crime on the Soviet Union-one of the primary levels of disinformation.

" . . . . In a hasty turnabout, soon after the assassination, Fred Koch took out full-page ads in The New York Times and The Washington Post, mourning JFK. The ads advanced the conspiracy theory that JFK's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, had acted as part of a Communist plot. The Communists wouldn't "rest on this success," the ads warned. In the corner was a tear-out order form, directing the public to sign up for John Birch Society mailings. . . ."

We have covered the "painting of Oswald Red" in numerous programs, including FTR #'s 925 and 926.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #993 - Update on Ukraine (Preparations for WW III?)

Highlighting recent, alarming aspects of the Ukraine crisis, the broadcast underscores how past and present may signal the beginning of World War III in a manner not unlike how fractious events in the Balkans triggered the First World War.


With Ukraine now receiving U.S. arms, including modified stinger anti-aircraft missiles, the Nazi “punisher” battalions in that country’s East may be in a position to trigger one or more provocations that could lead to conflict between nuclear-armed Russia, NATO and the U.S.


Since the Donbass militias have no air force, the stingers would appear to be deployed in the event of a wider, Ukraine/Russia war.


Nazi elements active in the Maidan coup spawned the Azov and other “punisher” units. With more information surfacing that indicates that the Maidan sniper shootings were a provocation-derived event, the possibility that Svoboda and Pravy Sektor-linked elements could drive developments in the Donbass toward World War III is one that deserves more attention than it will receive.


A frightening development, virtually unreported in the U.S., concerns unilateral moves by the Poroshenko government to move away from the Minsk peace plan and to rebrand the conflict in Eastern Ukraine as “occupation” by an “aggressor” Russia.


This appears to pave the way for a wider, deeper conflict which could, ultimately, draw in the U.S. and NATO: ” . . . . According to [Dmitri] Kiselyov, the new law, which awaits Poroshenko’s signature, makes preparations for war and includes language indicating a bellicose new approach to the conflict. The mission in Donbass is no longer described as an ‘anti-terrorist operation.’ Rather, the mission now is to send armed forces against ‘military formations of the Russian Federation’ in Donbass.


Military headquarters are established to coordinate the operation to be waged in Donbass. While up until now the self-declared republics of Donetsk and Lugansk were considered under the Minsk Accords as negotiating parties, now there are only ‘occupation administrations’ of the Russian Federation on these territories, with Russia identified as an ‘aggressor.’ . . . .”


The danger of Poroshenko seeking to play the “war card” to distract from Urkaine’s dire economic circumstances and his own failed government are real. Conflict with Russia could also deflect from Trump’s and the GOP’s failures at home: ” . . . . On the economic front, the European Union has refused to extend 600 million euros of credit to Ukraine due to corruption. The International Monetary Fund recently refused a tranche of $800 million over failure to introduce reforms. Meanwhile, in 2019 Ukraine is due to start repaying earlier loans. This will come to $14 billion a year, which amounts to half the state budget of Ukraine.


Due to dire economic conditions, Poroshenko and other government officials in Kiev have become deeply unpopular, and with diminished chances for electoral success may see war as politically advantageous. . . .”


The Trump administration just approved the sale of sniper rifles and, more significantly, anti-tank Javelin missiles to Ukraine. This should be evaluated against the background of the recent moves by Kiev (increasing the danger for an escalated conflict) as well as the activities of Kurt Volker, the “ex”-CIA officer, NATO functionary, George W. Bush State Department official and Atlantic Councicl Senior advisor serving as the Trump administration’s point-man in Ukraine.


Might anti-aircraft missiles be next? As the article below notes, the Donbass separatists don’t actually have an air force, so it would be a curious decision to start sending them anti-aircraft weapons. ” . . . . The proposed transfer — which also would include antiaircraft arms that would be defined as defensive weaponry — comes as fighting between Ukrainian troops and Russian-backed separatists. . . . The utility of antiaircraft weaponry, for example, is unclear, as the Russian-backed rebel army has no air force. The war is fought along a line of trenches that has not moved much since February 2015. . . .”


According to a report back in June, the Pentagon recently modified shoulder-fired stinger missiles to shoot small down drones that are difficult for regular Stinger missiles to hit. It’s not at all inconceivable that the anti-aircraft weapons the Pentagon and State Department have in mind are those Stinger missiles, modified for the purpose of shooting down separatist drones.


Also keep in mind that the shoulder-launched stringer missiles are among the weapons that terrorists would love to obtain and the Ukrainian troops getting trained on these systems may include the neo-Nazis fighting in Ukraine’s army getting trained by US military advisors like the Azov batallion. ” . . . . The American training at the Yavoriv base in western Ukraine is focused on forging a disciplined, professional military from the mix of volunteer groups that first fought the Russian incursion, rather than placing bets on any high-tech weapons systems. . . .”


When you read that, remember that the “mix of volunteers groups” includes neo-Nazis, including the Azov Battalion.


In other words, if Stinger missiles really are part of the military package, and just not yet announced, those little nightmares could easily end up in neo-Nazi hands and the US military could even be the ones training them on how to use them. We’ll see if that’s how it plays out, but we can’t rule it out...

2-3 Cara Drinin, "The Justice System's War on Kids"


Program #DRIC001. Recorded in Seattle, WA on November 08, 2017.





The juvenile justice system is off the rails. It is in urgent need of reform. The U.S. incarcerates roughly 2 million children every year, even though 95 percent of them have not been convicted of a violent crime. Too many of them are held in adult facilities. The systemic problems range from racism to brutality and extreme sentencing. Thousands of kids, many of them suffering from trauma come of age behind bars. Two-thirds of them have mental health issues. They are subject to physical and sexual assault. Children are up to 36 times more likely to commit suicide after being housed in an adult jail or prison than children incarcerated in juvenile facilities. The Equal Justice Initiative says confinement of children in adult facilities is indefensible, cruel and unusual punishment and should be banned.


Cara Drinan, Professor of Law at Catholic University, is a recognized expert on juvenile sentencing and criminal justice reform. She is the author of The War on Kids: How American Juvenile Justice Lost Its Way. From Alternative Radio, 1 (800) 444-1977, www.alternativeradio.or
