The elongated October fund drive has finished short of goal, but we press on. (I don't have the final figures) "Something's Happening!" managed to continue rebuilding our lost audience and managed 4 figures pledge income nearly every night. Great thanks to our stalwart staff: Buzz, John B., and of course Diane. The Thom Hartmann/Greg Palast event in San Pedro was successful and fun and helped close the fund drive income gap. You CAN pledge and choose from a select collection of our popular thank-you gifts for a limited time - at www.kpfk.org

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, OCTOBER 31








12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1024 - Ukrainian Fascism, Maidan Snipers, and Implications for the Syrian War" Part 2"





On the 17th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, we continue with analysis of the Maidan shootings-an apparent "false flag" operation-and muse about the implications of that for the conflict in Syria, as well as Russian and American political life.





In the first part of the program, we finish reading the poster presentation that professor Ivan Katchanovski, PhD of the University of Ottawa presented at The 2018 Conference of American Political Science Associates.


Katchanovski has done a deep, detailed forensic study of the evidence in the Maidan sniper attacks. He has a rigorous, succinct digital multimedia 'poster' (an 'iPoster') for his finding that the Maidan sniper attacks were a false flag operation. That poster was presented during the 2018 American Political Science Association conference in Boston. It gives a high level overview of his research and is heavily embedded with substantive, documentary videos. Here are the contents of the poster. Be sure to check out the numerous images and videos included in the actual iPoster online.





He concludes his presentation with: " . . . . Maidan massacre trial and investigation evidence have revealed various evidence that at least the absolute majority of 49 killed and 157 wounded Maidan protesters on February 20, 2014 were massacred by snipers in Maidan-controlled buildings. Such evidence includes testimonies of the majority of wounded protesters and many witnesses, forensic medical and ballisitic examinations, and investigation own finding that about half of Maidan protesters were wounded from other locations than the Berkut police. Various indications of stonewalling of the Maidan massacre investigations and the trials by the Maidan government officials and by far right organizations. Various indications of the cover-up of much of the key evidence of the massacre. Such revelations from the Maidan massacre trials and investigations corroborate previous studies findings that this massacre was a false flag mass killing with involvement of elements of Maidan leadership and the far right and that it included the massacre of the police. The puzzling misrepresentation of the Maidan massacre, its investigation, and the trial by Western media and governments require further research concerning reasons for such misrepresentation . . . . "


Note: Since FTR #1023 was recorded professor Katchanovski has posted a 59-minute-long video of the Maidan shootings. The video features TV footage from that day, with many clips clearly showing snipers operating from Maidan-controlled buildings. It also includes English subtitles and forensic descriptions of scenes. The footage includes a number of people being shot and killed-a grizzly 59-minutes, but absolutely invaluable in terms of establishing what actually happened.





The presentation of professor Katchanovski's research in this program begins with the section titled "Cover-Up and Stonewalling."


Additional perspective on the apparent non-investigation of the Maidan sniper shootings is provided by Anatoliy Matios, Ukraine's Deputy Prosecutor and Chief Military Prosecutor:


Matios, Ukraine's chief military prosecutor, gave an extensive interview where he said that Jews are behind all wars and want to "drown ethnic Slavs in blood."...

2-3 Chris Hedges "Rise Up and Resist"

Program #HEDC012. Recorded in Boulder, CO on September 21, 2018.


"When is enough enough? In the face of evil what does it take for people to move from passivity to active resistance? Throughout history there have been instances of people defying tyranny. Fighting back no matter what the odds. An example comes from Nazi Germany, often considered the benchmark of evil. Opposition to the regime was highly dangerous. Seventy five years ago, Hans and Sophie Scholl, brother and sister, and others at the University of Munich said, Genug. Enough. They formed the White Rose movement and called on Germans to recognize their moral duty and overthrow the government. They disseminated critical information through flyers and graffiti. One such graffiti said, "Whatever comes out of Hitler's mouth is a lie." In 1943, Hans and Sophie Scholl were arrested and beheaded. Their resistance and courage are honored today. They took risks. Can we? "


Interview by David Barsamian.





Chris Hedges is an award-winning journalist who has reported from the Balkans, the Middle East and Central America. He writes a weekly column for Truthdig.com. He is the author of many books including Death of the Liberal Class, The World As It Is, Wages of Rebellion and America: The Farewell Tour.

In this program we continue and expand analysis of the EuroMaidan sniper killings which led to the ouster of the Yanuukovych government. A story from BNE Intellinews, since taken down but available via the Way Back Machine, details Paul Manafort's networking with the Hapsburg Group milieu, providing more details that supplement previous discussion of the relationship.
Most importantly, however, the article provides important information on Manafort's post-Maidan doings in Ukraine! He spent more time in post-Maidan Ukraine than before the coup.
Even more importantly, the article provides significant details on Manafort's possible collaborators in arranging the violence that led to Yanukovych's ouster.
Before discussing the significant details of Manafort and his associates' possible roles in the violence that led to Yanukovych's ouster, we present the first part of the article, in order to flesh out the Manafort-Hapsburg networking.

2-3 Chris Hedges " Root Causes of a Failed System"
America, says Chris Hedges, is convulsed by an array of pathologies that have arisen out of profound hopelessness, a bitter despair and a civil society that has ceased to function. As our society unravels, we also face global upheaval caused by catastrophic climate change. Trump rode this disenchantment to power. Hedges argues that neither political party, now captured by corporate power, addresses the systemic problem. He sounds a urgent warning to jolt us out of our passivity and complacency. With the dangers facing the country and the planet this is no time to be sitting on the fence.

We had a slow start at the beginning of our drive and a few technical obstacles, but we have hit a nice stride these past four days. Given our current daily average of $20,968 we would need to be in a fund drive for 19.3 days. We will end our drive on October 28th at 6 PM. I feel that we will meet our goal by then.

1:30-3 Robert Thurman 'Jewel Tree of Tibet' Part 2 of 6
'The Enlightenment Engine of Tibetan Buddhism'
Tibetans call their cherished tradition of Buddhism a wish-fulfilling jewel tree for its power to generate bliss and enlightenment within all who absorb its teachings. This path to enlightenment, it is taught, requires more than a sitting meditation practice alone. With The Jewel Tree of Tibet, honored scholar and teacher Robert Thurman brings these insights to you as they were meant to be transmitted through the spoken word.
As a young seeker almost 40 years ago, Thurman first journeyed to Dharamsala, where he became the first Westerner ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Now, Thurman guides you lucidly through the unifying principles of Tibetan Buddhism's many branches. You will discover Tibetan Buddhism's detailed map of the bliss state of enlightenment; the principles of tantra for opening the doors to infinite compassion and continuity; and how to overcome the dangers of the spiritual quest to discover states of consciousness that transcend even death.
Finally, here is Robert Thurman on audio, offering a rich and intellectually riveting retreat program complete with many specific meditations and spiritual practices to fully immerse you in the mysteries of 'The Jewel Tree of Tibet.'


Eleven steps to create the spirit of enlightenment, here and now
The truths of Padmasambhava, Naropa, Tsong Khapa, and other legendary sages
Guided meditations to experience the blessings of the wish-fulfilling gem tree
More than nine hours of compelling study with one of Tibetan Buddhism's greatest teachers
Part 2 of 6: Jewel Tree Meditation. The 'seven limbs of communion.' Dissolving your world picture.
Evolution: Darwin vs. the Buddha. True meaning in life - and beyond. Authentic self-appreciation.
Reflecting on death. What you can take with you upon death. Developing a soul life. The cause
and effect of evolutionary action. Responsibility and interconnection. Infinity and the now. Ego and
suffering - The First Noble Truth. Our true nature.

1:30-3 Zainab Salbi: 'Wielding Our Sword of Truth"

Zainab Salbi is an author, humanitarian, and media commentator
who founded the non profit organization Women for Women International when she was only 23 years old. With Sounds True, she has published the book 'Freedom is an Inside Job: Owning Our Darkness and Our Light to Heal Ourselves and the World.'

In this episode of 'Insights at the Edge, Tami Simon and Zainab discuss what it means to be an agent of social change while also
navigating the everyday journey of being human. They talk about why it's necessary to let go of what no longer works in our lives in order to embrace our most deeply held truths. As an Iraqi-American, Zainab speaks on engaging with people whose values oppose ours - especially those who currently oppose Muslim immigration to the United States. Finally, Zainab and Tami talk about the healing power of making amends and what 'freedom' really means.

Tami's Takeaway:
Zainab teaches how we can befriend people who hold opposing views not through debate, but through embrace and a strong open stance that is curious about the other person's underlying needs and emotions. I believe this skill - truly understanding people who disagree with us and feel 'other' - is one of the most important skills we need to be peacemakers and bringers of love in all our interactions.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1022 - Edwin Manafort - The Coming of Fascism to Ukraine and the Russia-Gate Psy-op"

In the wake of the high-profile conviction of former Trump campaign aide Paul Manafort, we present information which greatly fleshes out his dealings with the Ukrainian government of Viktor Yanukovich and the "Hapsburg Group" of European politicians that were working to tease Ukraine from the Russian sphere of influence into the Western orbit.
For purposes of this program, we have nicknamed Manafort "Edwin Manafort," citing him in the context of the operations of Edwin Wilson, whose exploits we analyzed at length in AFA #4.
Far from being the "rogue" criminal he was reported as being, Wilson was actually operating on behalf of elements of the CIA in his terrorist support operations. Shortly before Wilson's death, a judge supported that conclusion and Wilson was eventually released from prison.
Far from being a "Russian agent," Paul Manafort is a U.S. spook who was working with a group of European politicians known as the Hapsburg Group, as discussed in FTR #1008.
A story from BNE Intellinews, since taken down but available via the Way Back Machine, details Manafort's networking with the Hapsburg Group milieu, providing more details that supplement previous discussion of the relationship.
Most importantly, however, the article provides important information on Manafort's post-Maidan doings in Ukraine! He spent more time in post-Maidan Ukraine than before the coup.

Even more importantly, the article provides significant details on Manafort's possible collaborators in arranging the violence that led to Yanukovych's ouster.
Before discussing the significant details of Manafort and his associates' possible roles in the violence that led to Yanukovych's ouster, we present the first part of the article, in order to flesh out the Manafort-Hapsburg networking.
Key points of information include:
Manafort's close relationship with Serhiy Lovochkin, a key aide to Viktor Yanukovich and owner of a premier Ukrainian TV station, and his sister Yulia Lovochkina, who owns an airline whose planes ferried Manafort in his dealings with the Hapsburg group.
The important role of Serhiy Lovochkin and his sister in promoting the EU Association Agreement. It was Yanukovich's eventual rejection of that agreement that led to the demonstrations that led up to the Maidan coup.
The dual role played by Hapsburg Group member Alexander Krasniewski, who was ran the EU's Ukraine Observation Group.
The profound degree of involvement of Manafort with the Hapsburg Group.
Of paramount significance for our purposes, is the behavior of Manafort, Lovochkin, Lovochkina, Dmytro Firtash and Victoria Nuland.
Noting the profound relationship between Manafort, Serhii Lovochkin, Yulia Lovochkina, the Hapsburg Group and the EU, it is important to evaluate the Manafort/Lovochkin relationship in the context of the Maidan snipers. (In FTR #'s 982, 993, we noted evidence that the Maidan shootings may have been a provocation. This information will be reviewed in our next program.)

We also review (in the description only) the relationship between members of the Hapsburg family and European integration, the Cold War against the Soviet Union, contemporary Ukraine and the OUN/B...

1:30-3 Robert Thurman 'Jewel Tree of Tibet') Part 1 of 6
'The Enlightenment Engine of Tibetan Buddhism'

Tibetans call their cherished tradition of Buddhism a wish-fulfilling jewel tree for its power to generate bliss and enlightenment within all who absorb its teachings. This path to enlightenment, it is taught, requires more than a sitting meditation practice alone. With The Jewel Tree of Tibet, honored scholar and teacher Robert Thurman brings these insights to you as they were meant to be transmitted through the spoken word.
As a young seeker almost 40 years ago, Thurman first journeyed to Dharamsala, where he became the first Westerner ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Now, Thurman guides you lucidly through the unifying principles of Tibetan Buddhism's many branches. You will discover Tibetan Buddhism's detailed map of the bliss state of enlightenment; the principles of tantra for opening the doors to infinite compassion and continuity; and how to overcome the dangers of the spiritual quest to discover states of consciousness that transcend even death.
Finally, here is Robert Thurman on audio, offering a rich and intellectually riveting retreat program complete with many specific meditations and spiritual practices to fully immerse you in the mysteries of 'The Jewel Tree of Tibet.'


Eleven steps to create the spirit of enlightenment, here and now
The truths of Padmasambhava, Naropa, Tsong Khapa, and other legendary sages
Guided meditations to experience the blessings of the wish-fulfilling gem tree
More than nine hours of compelling study with one of Tibetan Buddhism's greatest teachersPart 1 of 6: What is nobility? The mentor offering. Reality: The great bliss state. What is Buddhism? Indian Buddhism's three main developmental stages. Buddhism comes to Tibet. The nature of the path of enlightenment. Reincarnation and karma. Taking refuge in the three jewels. Buddha, dharma, sangha. The guru: Tibet's addition to the refuge vow. Jewel tree meditation.

12:30-1:30 "Deadly Deceit: Low Level Radiation, High Level Coverup"

Statistician Jay Gould discusses his findings from the first computer analysis of government mortality figures. As predicted by Linus Pauling and Andre Sakharov in 1958, immune systems of those born in 1948-1965 have been impaired owing to increased low levels of radiation. This can be seen in the increased occurrence of Epstein Barr, cancer, leukemia, chronic fatigue, heart disease, candida, as well as the outbreak of AIDS. He goes on to discuss Chernobyl's effect in the United States as well as Russia, milk contamination in New York and Washington D.C., Lyme disease and why military nukes have been shut down and civilian plants are (sic) scheduled to be closed in 5-10 years. Recorded live on KPFK May, 1992. From Pacifica Radio Archives, 1 (800) 735-0230, Archive #KZ1832.




1:30-2 Helen Caldicott: 'Nuclear Power, Radiation, and Our Health" (Part 1)
There are very few people currently alive who have given as much time and effort to the whole complex of the nuclear nightmare, as Helen Caldicott. Beginning in 1971 with atmospheric bomb testing to nuclear war to nuclear power to nuclear weapons in space, and to climate change. In 1971 Caldicott played a major public role in Australia's opposition to French atmospheric nuclear testing in the Pacific. Four years later she worked with the Australian trade unions to educate their members about the medical dangers of the nuclear fuel cycle, with a particular focus on uranium mining.
At the end of the nineteen-seventies Helen Caldicott gave up a profession she loves, that of a medical doctor, and a career that could have given her a comfortable life. In 1978 she left her position teaching pediatrics at Harvard Medical School to fully immerse herself in nuclear disarmament and joined those who were ending the cold war.
Caldicott formed several important organizations in her over four decades of activism. A lasting contribution was her co-founding Physicians for Social Responsibility. The international umbrella group: International Physicians for the Preventions of Nuclear War won the Noble Peace Prize in 1985. The Smithsonian has named her one of the most influential women of the 20th Century. She is the author of several books, among them 'Nuclear Madness,' 'If You Love This Planet,' 'The New Nuclear Danger' and 'Nuclear Power is Not the Answer.' From TUC Radio, www.tucradio.org (707) 463-2654

2-2:30 Helen Caldicott: "Nuclear Power, Radiation, and Our Health" (Part 2)
This is the conclusion of Helen Caldicott's keynote presentation at a public forum in Taipei, Taiwan, on July 7, 2013. Caldicott covers essential knowledge: How do radioactive iodine, strontium and plutonium affect the body? Why do the body and placenta mistake plutonium for iron and strontium for calcium and embed them in our organs and the fetus? Caldicott also covers the latest studies on birds in the Chernobyl and Fukushima exclusion zones by biologist Timothy Mousseau and she ends with a personal account of how she, as young med-student, was moved by the novel On The Beach. The author, Nevil Shute, describes how a nuclear world war III can poison the earth with radiation.
The organizer of the Taipei forum was an antinuclear alliance of mothers called Mom Loves Taiwan. They are campaigning to prevent the opening of yet another nuclear power plant on Taiwan and are seriously concerned about the ongoing radioactive releases from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear power plant and the risks of a future earthquake.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, OCTOBER 10


12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1021 - FascisBook: (In Your Facebook, Part 3 - A Virtual Panopticon, Part 3)

This program follows up FTR #'s 718 and 946, we examined Facebook, noting how it's cute, warm, friendly public facade obscured a cynical, reactionary, exploitative and, ultimately "corporatist" ethic and operation.
The UK's Channel 4 sent an investigative journalist undercover to work for one of the third-party companies Facebook pays to moderate content. This investigative journalist was trained to take a hands-off approach to far right violent content and fake news because that kind of content engages users for longer and increases ad revenues. " . . . . An investigative journalist who went undercover as a Facebook moderator in Ireland says the company lets pages from far-right fringe groups 'exceed deletion threshold,' and that those pages are 'subject to different treatment in the same category as pages belonging to governments and news organizations.' The accusation is a damning one, undermining Facebook's claims that it is actively trying to cut down on fake news, propaganda, hate speech, and other harmful content that may have significant real-world impact.The undercover journalist detailed his findings in a new documentary titled Inside Facebook: Secrets of the Social Network, that just aired on the UK's Channel 4. . . . ."

Next, we present a frightening story about AggregateIQ (AIQ), the Cambridge Analytica offshoot to which Cambridge Analytica outsourced the development of its "Ripon" psychological profile software development, and which later played a key role in the pro-Brexit campaign. The article also notes that, despite Facebook's pledge to kick Cambridge Analytica off of its platform, security researchers just found 13 apps available for Facebook that appear to be developed by AIQ. If Facebook really was trying to kick Cambridge Analytica off of its platform, it's not trying very hard. One app is even named "AIQ Johnny Scraper" and it's registered to AIQ.

The article is also a reminder that you don't necessarily need to download a Cambridge Analytica/AIQ app for them to be tracking your information and reselling it to clients. Security researcher stumbled upon a new repository of curated Facebook data AIQ was creating for a client and it's entirely possible a lot of the data was scraped from public Facebook posts.

" . . . . AggregateIQ, a Canadian consultancy alleged to have links to Cambridge Analytica, collected and stored the data of hundreds of thousands of Facebook users, according to redacted computer files seen by the Financial Times.The social network banned AggregateIQ, a data company, from its platform as part of a clean-up operation following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, on suspicion that the company could have been improperly accessing user information. However, Chris Vickery, a security researcher, this week found an app on the platform called 'AIQ Johnny Scraper' registered to the company, raising fresh questions about the effectiveness of Facebook's policing efforts. . . ."
In addition, the story highlights a forms of micro-targeting companies like AIQ make available that's fundamentally different from the algorithmic micro-targeting associated with social media abuses: micro-targeting by a human who wants to specifically look and see what you personally have said about various topics on social media. This is a service where someone can type you into a search engine and AIQ's product will serve up a list of all the various political posts you've made or the politically-relevant "Likes" you've made.
Next, we note that Facebook is getting sued by an app developer for acting like the mafia and turning access to all that user data as the key enforcement tool: ...
