12-1:30 Daniel Sheehan “Trajectory of Justice in America”

‘Precedent for Impeachment: Burying the True Crime’ (#8, April 25)


1:30-3 Daniel Sheehan “Trajectory of Justice in America”

‘Precedent for Impeachment – CIA, Iran-Contra, Rulers of the Realm’ (#9, April 30)


This course of 20 lectures given at U.C. Santa Cruz is the fifth time Danny has given it over the last years, each year, of course, changing emphasis while the times, the trajectory, and the climate change. It has been described 'fromDesert Storm to Standing Rock.'

The course gave credits for majors in History, Politics, Legal Studies, Sociology and Philosophy and contains a wide range of known and surprisingly unknown (to most) facts. One of the great rewards of the lecture and series is detail
on how we have escaped the current and recurrent situation of our national political/economic strangulation in the past and how we can do it again.

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.

He initiated and litigated both the case that established, before The United States Supreme Court, the right of unmarried persons to access to birth control information and devises and the case that established, again as the result
of a United States Supreme Court case, the right of American journalists to protect the identity of their confidential news sources from compulsory disclosure to state or federal grand juries.

Dan was then retained as a Trial Attorney for America's #1 Litigation Law Firm on Wall Street, the firm of Cahill, Gordon, Sonnett, Reindel & Ohl where he carried those two cases, and other important First Amendment cases to the U.S.
Supreme Court, most notably New York Times v. U.S. (the Pentagon Papers Case). As Chief Trial Counsel for the National Office of the American Civil Liberties Union's Rocky Mountain Regional Office in Denver, Colorado, Dan served as Chief Trial Counsel on numerous
cases on behalf of Native American rights including as Amicus Counsel in The Wounded Knee Occupation and its following trials...thereinafter being made Legal Counsel for the Native American Rights Committee of ACLU National. Dan also served as Special Counsel
to the law firm of famed criminal defense attorney F. Lee Bailey during that firm's representation of Watergate Burglary wiretapping specialist James McCord - the man who "blew the whistle" on Richard Nixon and his infamous "Plumbers Unit" that led directly
to the resignation of Richard Nixon as President.

Dan then became a Candidate for the Jesuit Priesthood and served as General Counsel to the United States Jesuit Headquarters in Washington, D.C. for ten years, where he also served as the Co-Director of the American Jesuit Order's National
Office of Social Ministry. There he partnered with Father William J. Davis,a member of the famous "Berrigan Brothers Gang" of Jesuit Priest Daniel Berrigan and his brother Phillip, a Josephite Catholic Priest and then partnered with National Organization of
Women (N.O.W.) National Labor Secretary Sara Nelson, the Oil, Chemical & Atomic Workers Union and the Environmental Policy Institute in Washington, D.C. to launch and successfully prosecute the Karen Silkwood case (Silkwood v. Kerr-McGee) - which stopped the
construction of all new private nuclear power plants in the United States between 1979 and the present. Dan and Father Davis and Sara Nelson then went on to co-found The Christic Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public interest law firm and public policy center
in Washington, D.C. that, over the next 12-year period, investigated and successfully civilly prosecute many of the most celebrated public interest cases of our generation. In 1984, in the midst of successfully defending the first members of The American Sanctuary
Movement to be publicly prosecuted by the Reagan/Bush Administration for aiding political refugees escaping Central American Death Squads funded by that Administration, Dan and his Christic Institute colleagues uncovered and investigated the infamous "Off-The-Shelf,
Stand Alone, Self-Financing 'Private' Covert Operations ENTERPRISE" OF Lt. Colonel Oliver North and The Reagan/Bush Administration and then triggered The Iran-Contra Scandal with their filing of the Federal Criminal Racketeering Act civil lawsuit against 29
of the "retired" former C.I.A. and U.S. Pentagon covert operations specialists who were the founders and leaders of that "ENTERPRISE." While that suit failed to secure a final civil judgment, it succeeded in uncovering - and publicly-exposing - the long-time
pattern of criminal activity conducted by those individuals inside the US intelligence community.

Daniel Sheehan's Memoir Published by Counterpoint Press
'The Peoples Advocate, the autobiography of American Constitutional Trial Attorney Daniel Sheehan.' His next book will be 'Rulers of the Realm' which he is currently trying to shorten at request of the publisher. 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.

1-2 Gary Null Show

Damnation Against the Man Who Cured AIDS

… After working for many years with people with AIDS-defining conditions — before the term AIDS appeared and after the launch of AZT — Null had gained far more clinical experience than that of the majority of American doctors. His clinical work and counseling has resulted in over twenty articles on living with as an HIV-positive person and a 750 page reference book with nearly 100 pages about treating AIDS naturally. His documentary “Living with AIDS Naturally: The Real Heroes”, chronicles the story of AIDS patients in the nineties that did not respond well to orthodox therapy but improved after incorporating natural holistic protocols to their treatment programs.

In conclusion, in one of the most Orwellian arguments, the single person in the nation who has actually reversed AIDS illnesses and seroconverted 18 patients from positive to negative was Gary Null. This has been reported and recorded by journalists reviewing the medical records, blood exams and personal patient interviews with the very people Null treated. It was also independently validated by scientists and medical staff. No one coming through the Tri-State Healing Center died for the reasons they entered through its doors. Rather their health remarkably improved. This is information that should be shared globally. To the detriment of the country’s health, federal health officials, the pharmaceutical industry, AIDS advocacy organizations, the media and Wikipedia do not want this message to be heard. As a result, the enemies of health have attempted to kill the messenger by labeling him an AIDS denier. Nevertheless, none of our AIDS pundits such as Robert Gallo or Anthony Fauci can add to their resumes that they reversed severe AIDS conditions either with a drug or even by natural means. This was a feat Null had accomplished.

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1064 - Socialists for Trump and Hitler (The "Assistance")", Part 4 (of 8)

We have wondered about the ascent of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a political animal. We wondered whether she might be a "ringer," elevated and promoted by the far right and, perhaps, elements of the CIA, because she is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT from their standpoint. In fact, she is straight from the Amazon (ahem) mail order catalog: an outspoken Latina who fits neatly into the anti-Latin bigotry institutionalized in Trump's GOP, brands as a socialist (perfect for the Karl Roves and Trumps of this world), has stated her intention to work against Democratic incumbents with whose policy positions she disagrees, and demonstrated a lack of economic sophistication in her comments about Amazon's failed New York City Deal and in the presentation of the Green New Deal.

The ascent of AOC was effected in large measure by two overlapping organizations-Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress-both co-founded by Saikat Chakrabarti, and Indian-American, Harvard-educated, Wall Street and Silicon Valley multi-millionaire, and fan of major Axis collaborator Subhas Chandra Bose. Brand New Congress was co-founded by a University of Pennsylvania-educated Turkish American, Cenk Uygur, who has a history of denying the Turkish genocide against the Armenians, as we shall see. (Like Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania is an Ivy League School.)

The radical Democratic newcomers are precipitating a war within the Democratic Party, ignoring the fact that the Democrats retook Congress as a result of victories by moderate candidates in districts taken by Trump in 2016...

Chakrabarti is fundamental to the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Chakrabarti was AOC's campaign manager and is her current chief of staff. Both Justice Democrats and Brand New Congress donated a total of $900,000 to a consulting firm also headed by Chakrabarti. Until recently, AOC sat on the board of one of them.

In a recent twitter video post defending AOC's mercurial social media activity, Chakrabartiappeared with a T-Shirt featuring a picture of Subhas Chandra Bose, an Indian nationalist who allied himself with both Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. He has a habit of wearing Subhas Chandra Bose garb...
