BEHIND THE SCENES

KPFK LSB VOTING LAGGING: DEADLINE MARCH 5
We are lagging behind the other stations in our voting totals and are in danger of having to extend the voting period - which means $$$. If you can even take the time and trouble to find one or more likely candidates, make your vote and send it in. That will count toward the quorum.

VOTING: The Local Station Board elections are happening now. Advice: Programmers cannot endorse candidates on the air or in our program guides. However there have been or will be a couple of postcards or emails from 'parties' of candidates listing their supporters to make things a bit easier. My personal advice is to judge candidates who want to do something TO the station, something WITH the station or something FOR the station. The boards are in need of some members with some kind of talent, experience, expertise, not just agendas. Also, Local Station Boards do not make program decisions - that's up to the Program Director and General Manager.



FEBRUARY+ FUND DRIVE
... begins Tuesday, February 12, goal $650,000. Expected to end by March 10 depending on our daily totals. (818) 985-5735. Or www.kpfk.org Sustainers wanted and phone answerers wanted. As of Saturday morningwe are at $283,680.

"Fund Drive Schedule" means that our program schedule will vary in response to pledge calls - we work for more regular programming and less fundraising and that depends on whether the phones are lighting. NOTE: We will also be starting the Thom Hartmann Program a bit early so we don't have to edit his program to accommodate his active listenership.

1-2 Jack Kornfield, "The Jewel of Liberation" 5 of 8

For four decades, Buddhist meditation teacher Jack Kornfield has shared practical instructions for awakening the wise and compassionate heart in the midst of all we experience. The Jewel of Liberation presents 10 pinnacle dharma talks (teaching sessions) hand-selected by Jack from his personal collection to illuminate the pathways out of suffering and into the natural freedom that is both our shared birthright and our greatest gift to the world.

Reclaim the Seat of Dignity, Compassion, and Lovingkindness

Meditation is the practice of awakening itself; it is the fundamental tool the Buddha offered to quiet the mind and open the heart. We begin our retreat with an examination of the art of meditation and how it empowers us to see things clearly and be gracious with the flow of this ever-changing life.

The Jewel of Liberation continues with guidance in managing our troubles, the "weeds" that arise even as we cultivate the seeds of abiding happiness. Our retreat culminates with an inquiry into the "laws of life," the understandings we must have if we are to experience freedom independent of our circumstances.

The Possibility of Freedom Here and Now

"The sure heart's release is found nowhere else but in our own direct experience-for it is who and what we are," teaches Jack Kornfield. "The world so much needs people who are free in this way, unafraid to love every being." Here is his invitation for each of us to "be a lamp of freedom for yourself and for all."

TUESDAY NIGHT, FEBRUARY 26
Fund Drive Schedule


12-1 Judith Blackstone: "Trauma and the Unbound Body"

Judith Blackstone is a pioneering teacher of contemporary spirituality best known for developing The Realization Process, a direct path toward nondual awakening. With Sounds True, she has most recently published the book 'Trauma and the Unbound Body.' In this episode of 'Insights at the Edge,' Tami Simon speaks with Judith about applying The Realization Process to the healing process-whether it's physical, relational, or psychological. They discuss the Process's application to unprocessed trauma-especially how fully inhabiting the body can highlight long-term physical constrictions. Tami and Judith talk about the methods for releasing that constriction, as well as the difference between awareness of the body and inhabiting it. Finally, Judith leads listeners in a core breath practice for settling into the body and attuning to the fundamental consciousness that is always available to us.
Tami's Takeaway: As part of our conversation about "disentangling the constrictions" that are held in the body as a result of trauma, Judith Blackstone teaches one of the central practices of The Realization Process-the Core Breath Practice. This is a powerful technique for quickly entering the subtle core of the body (a vertical channel that is described in many spiritual traditions). Once we enter this subtle core, we have a powerful resource available to us for releasing traumatic experiences held in the body. The takeaway: do the Core Breath Practice regularly as a way to stay in deep inward contact and "unbind the body.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, FEBRUARY 27
Fund Drive Schedule

12-1 Dave Emory "For the Record #1049 - Interview #18 with Jim DiEugenio about 'Destiny Betrayed'

Guy Banister employee Tommy Baumler: " . . . . whatever happens, the Shaw case will end without punishment for him [Shaw], because federal power will see to that."

This is the eighteenth of a planned long series of interviews with Jim DiEugenio about his triumphal analysis of President Kennedy's assassination and New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison's heroic investigation of the killing.

This interview continues with the analysis of Clay Shaw's trial.
Exemplifying the power that was marshaled on behalf of Clay Shaw was the treatment accorded FBI agent Regis Kennedy.
Not only did the Department of Justice intercede ahead of time to limit Kennedy's testimony, but Nixon's Attorney General John Mitchell "severely curtailed" his testimony "mid-trial."

There was a code to all this that Alcock could not have known about. But it was part of the reason that Attorney General John Mitchell severely curtailed Regis Kennedy's testimony in mid-trial. . . .

A major element in the testimony during Clay Shaw's trial was the testimony of autopsy surgeon Army Lieutenant Colonel Pierre Finck. The autopsy was being controlled by one of the high-ranking military officers present at the procedure.
Destiny Betrayed by Jim DiEugenio; Skyhorse Publishing [SC]; Copyright 1992, 2012 by Jim DiEugenio; ISBN 978-1-62087-056-3; p. 300.

. . . . Finck replied that he was not running the autopsy, it was Commander James Humes. When Oser asked if Humes was actually in charge, Finck made a disclosure which literally changed the face of the autopsy evidence forever. And it should have rocked the news media if [media hatchet man James] Phelan had not been controlling it. Finck replied that Humes actually stopped and asked, "Who is in charge here?" Finck then said he heard an Army General say, "I am." Finck then added, "You must understand that in those circumstances, there were law enforcement officials, military people with various ranks, and you have to coordinate the operations according to directions". . . .
Then, Jim notes that Alvin Oser had to ask Finck eight times as to why Finck did not dissect the track of the neck wound. Finck's response-that he was ordered not to do so by one of the high-ranking officers present, is proof of a conspiracy.
Destiny Betrayed by Jim DiEugenio; Skyhorse Publishing [SC]; Copyright 1992, 2012 by Jim DiEugenio; ISBN 978-1-62087-056-3; p. 302.

. . . . [Alvin] Oser then moved on to another key issue that exposed the pathologists as pawns. A very important point about the autopsy is its failure to convincingly prove directionality. That is, from which direction did the bullets enter the body? There have always been serious queries about whether the wound in Kennedy's throat was an entrance or exit wound. If that wound was one of entrance, then Kennedy was shot at least once from the front. That shot could not have been from Oswald, therefore the murder was a conspiracy. ..


. . . . When Shaw was first arrested in March of 1967, Habighorst had handled the booking. Before having him sign the fingerprint card, the officer had routinely asked if the defendant had ever used an alias. Apparently unsettled by his arrest, Shaw had replied "Clay Bertrand." Habighorst typed this on the card and Shaw signed it. Alcock now wanted to admit both the card and the officer's testimony as evidence into the trial. This seemed powerful, damning evidence because it came right out of Shaw's mouth and hand. . . .The prosecution's protestations fell on deaf ears. Judge Haggerty would not allow the evidence. . . .

Alcock leaped out of his chair. His face red and his voice cracked with emotion. "Your Honor. Are you ruling on the credibility of officer Habighorst?" . . . .
. . . . "The whole world can hear that I do not believe Officer Habighorst. . . . ."
"I demand a mistrial," Alcock shouted. "A judge's unsolicited comment on evidence . . . ."
"Denied," said Haggerty. . . .

The program concludes with discussion of Harry Connick's destruction of Garrison's files and of the government's efforts to discredit Garison. This will be taken up at greater length in our next program.

1-2 Dave Emory "For the Record #1050" - Interview #19 with Jim DiEugenio about 'Destiny Betrayed'

Guy Banister employee Tommy Baumler: " . . . . whatever happens, the Shaw case will end without punishment for him [Shaw], because federal power will see to that."

This is the nineteenth of a planned long series of interviews with Jim DiEugenio about his triumphal analysis of President Kennedy's assassination and New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison's heroic investigation of the killing.

In the context of the then CIA director Richard Helms' memo that Garrison's should be neutralized before, during and after the Clay Shaw trial, we highlight the media attacks against Garrison that continued after the trial.

The media hit pieces continued during Garrison's attempt at trying Clay Shaw for perjury. Look magazine did a hit piece on Garrison featuring many of the "Usual Suspects," including William Gurvich, one of the infiltrators into Jim Garrison's investigative trial who then collaborated with Shaw's defense team.
Officially the piece was written by Warren Rogers, whose institutional affiliations bear relating:

An altogether remarkable change of venue occurred, after Shaw's lawyers had received copies of Garrison's investigative documents for Shaw's perjury trial!
Destiny Betrayed by Jim DiEugenio; Skyhorse Publishing [SC]; Copyright 1992, 2012 by Jim DiEugenio; ISBN 978-1-62087-056-3; p. 313.

Clay Shaw filed a nuisance lawsuit against Garrison for slander/defamation, which was terminated by Clay Shaw's death, despite the Wegmanns' attempts at perpetuating it even after their client was deceased.
James Phelan's protege James Kirkwood continued the media assault on Garrison with the publication of his book American Grotesque, which misrepresented the Garrison investigation.
