BEHIND THE SCENES

Letter from Executive Director of Pacifica to National Board, October
23.







Dear PNB Directors,




It has been both a challenging and regrettable two plus weeks for all of us, both financially and in our governance. We must move forward together with the work of the Foundation that must be done to reliably serve
our audience with high quality programming that “disseminate(s) information on the causes of conflict between any and all such groups: and through any means compatible with the purposes of this corporation to promote the study of political and economic problems
and of the causes of religious, philosophical and racial antagonisms.” That founding mission is as important today, as it was when it was written, both in our larger world and our work of governance.




Notwithstanding the facts and many opinions of our conflict that have been seen in our public and private dialogues, please step back from the debate and the constant effort to “win” or be “right.” Remember that
our primary duty is to support our daily operations, as well as the staff and listeners, for the survival of all of Pacifica. Each of us still has to work together. Due to do the pending litigation, much is still in the hands of our judicial system. Here’s
an update.




On Monday, the Federal court opted not to hear the arguments, as soon as the parties appeared, remanded the action back to state court. This means that the Federal Court decided that they do not have jurisdiction
because this is an internal board dispute and not a Federal Communications Act issue. Therefore, both sides have to start with a new State Court judge. The TRO is still in effect and that court simply decided it cannot hear our arguments.




The Federal Court judge advised that the parties attempt to work it out rather than continue to engage in costly (time-wise and money-wise) litigation. Given the division on the board, both sides were advised that
a settlement should be explored with a neutral mediator. If you remember, this is what I asked for in my PNB oral report on Thursday night, 10/10/19. We should find a fair, independent mediator who is both skilled in finance and governance, with a commitment
to the values of Pacifica.




There have been a number of emails from PNB directors Monday night quoting board resolutions and giving directions drawn from improperly held meetings. I have been advised by counsel, Kara Steger, that they are
still improper and invalid. Persisting in violating court orders and not following the court’s suggestion to work for a settlement is contrary to what is required. We need to focus on a solution which addresses getting local programming back on WBAI, a solution
that works within our current financial state. A house divided can not stand. We must reason this out in good faith.




While some may question my motives and objectives, you should know my intentions. To some my decisions seemed wrong, outrageous, and heartless. On arrival, I did not have a lot of time or options to find an ideal
solution to the financial crisis, as well as deal with the various compliance issues I encountered, ones that we are still facing. I tried my best to manage the challenging situation and perform my legal obligations, duties and responsibilities as best I could,
given the circumstances. The previous 15 or so Pacifica iED’s and ED’s in the past decade




WBAI Rebuild Proposal October 23, 2019

attempted to answer the call. Some of their experiences are well documented and I believe had been circulated to the PNB.




A lot of harsh, untrue, and insulting things have been said to and about me as an employee of this Foundation. I have experienced a great deal of hostility from some. Our problems cannot be ignored nor swept aside
by factionalism. To be crystal clear, at no time have I ever contemplated selling or swapping WBAI or any of our stations. I have said this many times during our PNB meetings, in print, and whenever I speak to anyone. My lifelong love of bluegrass and jazz
began listening as a child in the Bronx to BAI in the ‘60s. Recently in spring of 2019 New Yorkers listened as another heritage station, WPLJ-FM, fell to the evangelical media juggernaut, EMF. I have been told that a media broker representing them inquired
about WBAI around the ESB period. I’m sure they are still interested in adding their secondary program stream to NYC, as they have done in LA.




The #1 reason I took this assignment is that I did not want WBAI to lose its frequency. Secondly, I want work with you to protect and grow ALL of our Pacifica stations and affiliates. I want us to come together
as a network to serve a great need in our country for the programming that we currently broadcast and to greatly expand on that service.




I am hoping that cooler minds will prevail, that we can all find a way forward. In its near 60 years of life WBAI has existed in different forms, it has evolved, staggered, and has survived. The concern expressed
by New Yorkers since the layoffs can be channeled into positive action, helping to bring the resources needed to relaunch WBAI sustainably. It’s time to rebuild this station into an even better station, one that New Yorkers need and deserve. I am committed
to doing that as I hope you will join me in that effort.




With that in mind I have attached three scenarios for us to review:




1) The Rebuild WBAI Plan. This takes a more affordable, scaled approach to returning local volunteer staff programs. It will allow us to bring local volunteer program staff back quickly, in about 30 days of prep.
The proposal and budget are below.

2) Return WBAI As It Was Plan. In order to return as the station was operating, this is what it will cost based on the budget presented by management to the iCFO: a run rate of $139K per month, with revenues budgeted
at $115K per month, without capital expenditures. Thisgapispartofthereasonthestationcouldnotcoverpayroll consistently and other expenses. The expenses far outweighed the income. The PNO and other Pacifica units lack the cash resources to cover this. The cash
flow trend only gets worse once the loan interest and balloon payments come due, even worse if a recession occurs. If however, the cash can be raised to do this from the station, with determined LSB efforts and the greater NY community, I recommend we do this.
If not, another solution is necessary. I have the budget submitted with the full staff below. I have also attached the historical WBAI fundraising data from 2011 to 2019 provided by WBAI for a realistic benchmark.





WBAI Rebuild Proposal October 23, 2019




3) Pacifica Across America on WBAI. This is the current model of feeding the best of Pacifica programming along with favorites from the Pacifica Archives, independent producers and Pacifica Affiliates. While the
least attractive of all the alternatives, it is the most economical in the short term, but also the least sustainable in the long run. I have attached the running budget below. This solution, due to the payroll funding shortfall crisis, was always meant to
be a temporary measure. The immediate litigation that followed, left no time to develop this idea, and slowed these efforts considerably. The hope is that we will make significant efforts to rebuild WBAI with the support of the greater New York Community.
I still believe this is possible, that we can raise the funds to construct a proper new home for WBAI, sustainably staffed to provide expanded services to our NY listeners.




The Foundation must continue to live in the real world of dollars and cents. We should look to our founder’s vision for guidance, never compromising our Foundation’s core principles, matters of law, our responsibilities
to our staff, and providing inspiring programming to our listeners. I hope these budgets and the Rebuild WBAI Plan will set the table for a realistic discussion.




I would like to begin a civil dialogue so that we can move forward. I will make myself available to you at any time if you would like to speak personally. Please email me with any time windows that you may be available.
It is my sincere hope that we can do so soon.



Thank you, John Vernile

Executive Director, Pacifica Foundation

12-1 Gary Null “Progressive Commentary Hour”

Death by Medicine Revisited

By Gary Null and Helen Buyniski



By any measure, we are in the worst health crisis in American history. Out of a population of 335 million people, two thirds of us – adults and children both – are suffering from a wide range of health conditions,
the majority of which are preventable. Our first effort at explaining how serious the conditions were and indeed to verify that they were real using only the mainstream medical community and the government’s official figures took several years with a group
of highly qualified board certified physicians and academics with PhDs with deep experience in research scholarship.



Up until that point, no one had compiled all injuries and fatalities occurring as a result of medical treatment. The best that had been done was by Dr. Lucian Leape, a professor from Harvard who had written a groundbreaking
report that had gone virtually unchallenged and unreported in the medical press. Later, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) would publish an article by Dr. Barbara Starfield showing that iatrogenesis was the third leading cause of death.
Dr. Martin Makary reached the same conclusions over a decade later, publishing his findings in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). However, it was surprising and disheartening to find that with all the medical and scientific research expertise at these researchers’
disposal, they left out several important causes of death from their statistics. This showed gross flaws in their research methodology.



Our report was the most comprehensive to date published in the US. Once completed, we sent it for feedback and comment to more than 7,000 scientific publications, health reporters, and federal agencies. Not one
single response was received. How is this even possible? We expected legitimate challenges and corrections; even admonitions would have been welcome. Instead, we got dead silence. Why?



Years have passed, and the state of American health has only worsened. The latest official reports show more heart attacks, more strokes, obesity, and diabetes including in children. There is more dementia, Alzheimer’s,
and cancer than ever before. And yet we spent more on healthcare in 2017 than we’ve ever spent – $3.5 trillion, 17.9 percent of the nation’s GDP, and a number that is on track to further increase in 2018.1 So now we’re perplexed – if we tell people that we
have the best healthcare system in the world, with the latest technology, the most pharmaceuticals and medical procedures, state of the art hospitals, and special treatment centers, we should have a population that is far more robust and healthy – but just
the opposite is the case.



Then it occurred to us that we were also missing a very important piece of this puzzle. Why are we not preventing disease? How much is all this disease actually costing the patient, corporations, and society? The
figures are both staggering and heartbreaking, as there is no discussion of this. We only become invested in a person after they are sick. We have only focused as a society on how to alleviate the symptoms of that person’s illness. When we compare our healthcare
program and state of health and longevity with other developed nations, we are near dead last. How is this possible? Those individuals who’ve brought these dire statistics to our attention (Makary, Starfield, Leape, etc) have initiated no wider call for action.
Nothing has happened. They too have been shouting into the void. This is a dialogue we desperately need. Our new article expands on the first to include a discussion on iatrogenesis, its causes, prevention, and most importantly how to resolve in part or whole
all of these problems…

FUND DRIVE SCHEDULE








12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1087 - Fascism: 2019 World Tour, Part 2




After review of Carl Lundstrom’s financing of the Sweden Democrats, as well as his central role in financing the Pirate Bay site (which hosted WikiLeaks, courtesy of Joran Jermas/Israel Shamir), we delve into the
operations of Lundstrom’s Sweden Democrat associates.



Utilizing the anti-immigrant theme utilized with great effect by fascists around the world, the Sweden Democrats are gaining ground on the Swedish political landscape.



Key points of discussion include: The Nazi origins of the Sweden Democrats; the Waffen SS background of one of the party’s founders; networking of the Sweden Democrats with fascists and reactionaries in other countries,
including the U.S., France and Germany; the pivotal role of the internet in advancing the fortunes of the Sweden Democrats.



Next, we examine the rise of Jair Bolsonaro’s fascist government.



Again, in recent programs, we have examined the profound role of online technology. in the promotion of fascism, as well as overlapping areas of intelligence activity. In that context, it is vital to remember that
the Internet was developed as a weapon, with the focus of the technology being counterinsurgency.



In Brazil, the rise of Jair Bolsonaro’s fascist government received decisive momentum from YouTube, which is transforming the political landscape in Brazil, as it is in this country.



” . . . .In colorful, far-right rants, Mr. Moura accused feminists, teachers and mainstream politicians of waging vast conspiracies. Mr. Dominguez was hooked.



As his time on the site grew, YouTube recommended videos from other far-right figures. One was a lawmaker named Jair Bolsonaro, then a marginal figure in national politics — but a star in YouTube’s far-right community
in Brazil, where the platform has become more widely watched than all but one TV channel. Last year, he became President Bolsonaro.



‘YouTube became the social media platform of the Brazilian right,’ said Mr. Dominguez, now a lanky 17-year-old who says he, too, plans to seek political office. . . .”



Two excerpts from the story below encapsulate and epitomize the growing, successful manifestation of internet fascism: “An Ecosystem of Hate” and the “Dictatorship of the ‘Like’ ”



“. . . . An Ecosystem of Hate



. . . . As the far right rose, many of its leading voices had learned to weaponize the conspiracy videos, offering their vast audiences a target: people to blame. Eventually, the YouTube conspiracists turned their
spotlight on Debora Diniz, a women’s rights activist whose abortion advocacy had long made her a target of the far right.



Bernardo Küster, a YouTube star whose homemade rants had won him 750,000 subscribers and an endorsement from Mr. Bolsonaro, accused her of involvement in the supposed Zika plots.



As far-right and conspiracy channels began citing one another, YouTube’s recommendation system learned to string their videos together.



However implausible any individual rumor might be on its own, joined together, they created the impression that dozens of disparate sources were revealing the same terrifying truth.



‘It feels like the connection is made by the viewer, but the connection is made by the system,’ Ms. Diniz said.



Threats of rape and torture filled Ms. Diniz’s phone and email. Some cited her daily routines. Many echoed claims from Mr. Küster’s videos, she said.



Mr. Küster gleefully mentioned, though never explicitly endorsed, the threats. That kept him just within YouTube’s rules.



When the university where Ms. Diniz taught received a warning that a gunman would shoot her and her students, and the police said they could no longer guarantee her safety, she left Brazil. . . .



. . . . ‘The Dictatorship of the Like’



Ground zero for politics by YouTube may be the São Paulo headquarters of Movimento Brasil Livre, which formed to agitate for the 2016 impeachment of the left-wing President Dilma Rousseff. Its members trend young,
middle-class, right-wing and extremely online.



Renan Santos, the group’s national coordinator, gestured to a door marked ‘the YouTube Division’ and said, ‘This is the heart of things.’



Inside, eight young men poked at editing software. One was stylizing an image of Benito Mussolini for a video arguing that fascism had been wrongly blamed on the right.



. . . . The group’s co-founder, a man-bunned former rock guitarist name Pedro D’Eyrot, said ‘we have something here that we call the dictatorship of the like.’



Reality, he said, is shaped by whatever message goes most viral. Even as he spoke, a two-hour YouTube video was captivating the nation. Titled ‘1964’ for the year of Brazil’s military coup, it argued that the takeover
had been necessary to save Brazil from communism.



Mr. Dominguez, the teenager learning to play guitar, said the video persuaded him that his teachers had fabricated the horrors of military rule.



Ms. Borges, the history teacher vilified on YouTube, said it brought back memories of military curfews, disappeared activists and police beatings. ‘I don’t think I’ve had my last beating,’ she said. . . .”

1-1:30 Chris Hedges, "On Contact"




Chris Hedges talks to New York Catholic Workers Martha Hennessy and Carmen Trotta about breaking into the Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base to charge the US government with crimes against peace on April 4, 2018.
The peace activists, known as the Kings Bay Plowshares 7, were arrested and went on trial this week in Georgia, following allegations of trespass and damage to government property, among others. Kings Bay is the largest nuclear submarine base in the world,
with six ballistic missile subs and two guided missile subs. Over the past four decades, activists in the Plowshares movement have taken part in about 100 similar actions at nuclear arms facilities, beginning in 1980 at the General Electric nuclear missile
plant in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

1:30-2:30 The Ralph Nader Radio Hour




Labor writer, Steven Greenhouse, joins Ralph to discuss his new book “Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, Present
and Future of American Labor.” Then Steve, David, and Ralph have a spirited discussion about how the 99% can wrest power from the 1%.



Steven Greenhouse is an award-winning reporter who covered labor and workplace issues for nineteen years at The
New York Times. He has also served as a business and economics reporter and a diplomatic and foreign correspondent.



“I think one of the reasons Trump won Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania is that workers were too misinformed, and they thought Trump was going to do wonders for them. And if unions did a better job communicating,
educating, perhaps a weekly email newsletter about how Trump is hurting workers, how Trump has rolled back all these protections that Obama had provided, extending overtime to millions of more workers. Obama issued this very important rule that doesn’t get
enough attention that required Wall Street firms to act in the best interests of workers in handling their 401Ks. And Trump, doing a huge favor for Wall Street and really stabbing workers in back, scrapped that rule. Now, it’s much easier for Wall Street firms
to rip off workers.”



“In no other industrial nation do corporations fight so hard to beat back and, indeed, quash labor unions. And they threaten to close their plant if they unionize. They threaten to even cut benefits if workers
unionize. In 34% of unionization drives – one study found – the companies fire the workers who are leading the unionization drive in order to cripple the unionization drive.”



“Tens of millions of workers are making less today than workers were paid in 1968 adjusted for inflation, even though – because of automation etc. – you are twice as productive. One worker in Walmart produces as
much as two workers in Walmart in 1968. You’re getting zero benefit. All the productivity gains are going to pay Walmart’s executives and top managers and not to you.”

(2) STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FROM GENERAL MANAGERS
of KPFA, KPFK, KPFT, and WFPW

Dear KPFA/Pacifica listener,

Below we forward a statement issued by four of the general managers of Pacifica radio in support of the recent actions taken by the interim executive director of the Pacifica network to protect the viability of the entire network. Please share widely. We urge you to can add your support by writing to the Pacifica board of directors atpnb@pacifica.org.


October 14, 2019

To Whom It May Concern:

We, the General Managers of four Pacifica radio outlets, are writing to express our full and unwavering commitment to the recent decisions and actions undertaken by our Interim Executive Director, John Vernile.

Specifically, we believe the decision to lay off the staff at WBAI was responsible given the dire financial situation. We believe this decision was motivated out of economic necessity and if there were alternative options available Mr. Vernile would have taken them.

We back the decision to broadcast Pacifica Across America on 99.5FM as an action that maintains positive control of the airwaves while distributing relevant, educational, and informative content to the city of New York.

We respect and affirm the board's decision to that also agrees with these actions.
We believe that these actions are necessary to secure the ongoing viability of WBAI and the Pacifica Foundation.

We know it is the responsibility of the Executive Director to ensure that Pacifica and our local stations are financially sound, acting with full integrity, and in alignment with our mission. Our listeners, staff as well as local, state, and federal governments necessitate a high degree of professionalism and regulatory compliance. We believe that Mr. Verniles actions were and are
in this spirit.

As General Managers it is our responsibility to lead and continue the unity that Mr. Vernile has developed. We are committed to expanding this momentum into an organized, mission driven, financially stable WBAI.

Sincerely,
Anyel Zuberi Fields, General Manager, KPFK Los Angeles, CA
Quincy McCoy, General Manager, KPFA Berkeley, CA
Jerry Paris, General Manager, WPFW, Washington, DC
Jack Valinski, General Manager, KPFT Houston, TX

Pop Spirit - The Commodification Of Spirituality & Simulated Desires

"A moment of enlightenment is of no use to someone who needs a good week of it." ~Idries Shah

We may need more than a week of enlightenment, yet in our modern cultures all we get are bite-sized YouTube-compatible fleeting moments. The prevailing mood of our times is one where the 'spirit' is like the radio-friendly three-minute pop song. It is a digestible burst that we can chew on without it giving us indigestion. We have literally thousands of online videos showing us how to improve almost every aspect of our lives by breathing, body postures, mental exercises, visualizations, and the good old self-to-mirror pep talks. We are told that we 'create our own reality,' despite the obvious fact that in many countries we have accepted sociopaths in power - or perhaps we voted them into office? If that is our reality, then what does it say about ourselves - that most of us are latent sociopaths with a hidden agenda for inflicting suffering upon others? If this is creating our own reality, then most of us must also be secretly longing for therapy...

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1086 - Fascism: 2019 World Tour, Part 1"

Beginning an overview of burgeoning fascism around the world, this program commences with further documentation of the operation and heritage of fascism in Ukraine.

We begin with discussion of a Kyiv legal decision maintaining that the C14 militia of the Svoboda organization is not a neo-Nazi organization.

A lawyer for C14 asserts that the group, while nationalist, is not neo-Nazi in nature and labeling it a neo-Nazi group hurt its "business reputation".

The Kyiv City Commercial Court agreed, ruling that Hromadske TV couldn't establish that C14 - a group named after David Lane's "14 words" white supremacist slogan - was actually a neo-Nazi group. As a result, Hromadske TV has to retract its tweet and pay 3,500 hryvnyas ($136) in court fees for C14.

This despite the fact noted in the article below that: " . . . . [C14's] own members have admitted to joining it because of its neo-Nazi ideology . . . ."

It's a sign of how far along the mainstreaming of Ukraine's neo-Nazi groups is in Ukraine: If you call the open neo-Nazis "neo-Nazis", they can sue you and win.

As the article also notes, C14's youth cadre is funded by the Ukrainian government: " . . . . Nevertheless, C14 has received state funding for two years running from the Ministry of Youth and Sport to conduct "national-patriotic education" courses at summer camps for the country's youth. . . . ."

In FTR #907,we noted the profound presence of the Ukrainian fascists in the United States, as well as their operational connections to the Third Reich. In FTR #1072, we noted the Ukrainian youth cadre in the U.S., and its affiliation with the OUN/B milieu in Ukraine.

Our next story fleshes out these connections, noting: ...

Next, we highlight the fascist ascent in the Baltic states. ...

After review of Carl Lundstrom's financing of the Sweden Democrats, as well as Lundstrom's central role in financing the Pirate Bay site (which hosted WikiLeaks, courtesy of Julian Assange's fascist associate Joran Jermas/Israel Shamir), we delve into the operations of Lundstrom's associates.

Utilizing the anti-immigrant theme utilized with great effect by fascists around the world, the Sweden Democrats are gaining ground on the Swedish political landscape.

Key points of discussion include: The Nazi origins of the Sweden Democrats; the Waffen SS background of one of the party's founders; networking of the Sweden Democrats with fascists and reactionaries in other countries, including the U.S., France

There's a big battle going on at the National Board level about WBAI and reorganization of the Pacifica governance. Things are changing every day so I hesitated to even link you to a place which isn't one-sided and huge, much less two places. KPFK is
part of Pacifica and shares its debt, but is staying healthy, but not out of the battle Pacifica is waging for existence of all 5 stations.

The battle is complex and intense - the national board is split 11 to 11 on the WBAI plan - there is so much detail that I hesitated to send out a giant news addition but Diane suggested that some of you will be VERY interested and for that reason I should
put an addendum to "Behind the Scenes" at the END of this Program Guide which will provide some detailed info, some of the arguments, and be easy to disregard if you're not interested.

Finally there are noticeable stirrings of a world awakening to the plight of civilization and a livable planet. After fifty years of false starts, a diverse community of independent voices are finally being heard
en masse, such as Chris Hedges. Jane Goodall, Bill McKibben, Guy McPherson, Vandana Shiva, and more recently Greta Thunberg, Jamie Mangolin and other environmental youth leaders. We are being warned that our Western lifestyle as individual consumers, trapped
in the fangs of neoliberal capitalist mythologies of infinite progress and development, are having an astronomically detrimental impact upon our earth's finite resources and ecological diversity. Ultimately, as the MIT's Limits of Growth report warned 47 years
ago, continuing business-as-usual will have dire consequences. Unfortunately there is no concerted collective international effort to deal with humanity's rate of consumption and addiction to economic growth

BEHIND THE SCENES PART 2
(pro and con arguments)




Press Release: Pacifica Restructuring Project:

For information regarding this release, please contact Carole Travis at: 312-925-5913

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Pacifica Restructuring Project (PRP) announced today that it has released a comprehensive set of bylaws amendments designed to reform the current governance structure of the Pacifica Radio Founda-tion. The
PRP, an ad hoc group consisting of both current, as well as former members of the national Board of Directors of Pacifica, is proposing these reforms after witnessing the decline of the network over the past two decades.

They came to this decision because, they stated, "We have concluded, after serving on these boards, that the current bylaws have crippled Pacifica management's ability to address serious issues such as the changing
media landscape, the changing fundraising paradigm of younger generations, and the ne-cessity for first rate programming to inform, educate and inspire listeners and supporters in this critical time."

They added, "Pacifica Radio, once one of the most important resources for progressive movements and listeners, must remain a viable source of information in these troubling times."

To remedy the problem "We are proposing rational changes to the current Bylaws that would bring the foundation closer to the normal operating governance of other 501c3 organizations."

Under the new structure the Pacifica National Board of Directors would be (11) members--reduced in number from twenty-two (22) to eleven. Five (5) of the Directors would be elected directly by the members at each
of the five Pacifica radio stations. In addition, six "At-Large" directors will be chosen for their skills and leadership in areas including alternative media and movement work, financial plan-ning and fundraising work, and their commitment to Pacifica's peace
and justice mission since its es-tablishment in 1949. The initial group of these at large directors includes a former president of the United Auto Workers, the publisher of the Progressive magazine, a former executive director of the National Lawyers Guild,
a prominent civil rights attorney, a prominent African-American historian, and a skilled finance analyst.(Their biographies and photos are attached.)

Local Station Advisory Boards, will be replaced by Community Advisory Boards whose mission would be to reach out to the communities being served in the signal area and bring listener concerns and views to station
management.

On Monday, September 16, the PRP is emailing a petition to each member of the foundation asking for their support in putting these bylaws changes to a vote, first by the current Board of Directors, and then by
a vote of the membership.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September 10


Dear WBAI Member -

On Monday morning, October 7, the new interim Executive Director of Pacifica, John Vernile, secretly flew from California to New York and, without warning, shut down WBAI. He wiped its programs off the air, fired
its staff, ordered them out of the building, and changed the locks on the door. (Zack Fink covered the response to the shutdown on NEWS1-TV.)

Pacifica justified the abrupt shutdown in a press release issued that day. It said the closure

"was necessitated by the serious and persistent financial losses at WBAI."

And the vice chair of Pacifica's board of directors, Sabrina Jacobs, added:

"As soon as financially and logistically possible, a plan will be drawn up to
address how we can rebuild our NY station into a vibrant local going operation."

But both statements are false. What is true is that the shutdown of WBAI is the culmination of a decade-long plan -- hatched by KPFA's directors, its station manager (Quincy McCoy), and several powerful donors
and supporters -- to swap or sell WBAI 's broadcast license for an estimated $50-$100 million and use the proceeds to refurbish KPFA. The pretext for the sale? WBAI's alleged financial meltdown.

However, if the meltdown failed to occur, the plotters would help it along -- as they are now doing. For example, why in the world did they decide to shut down WBAI right in the middle of a fund drive, which would
have generated $300-400,000 dollars in revenue? Why were they so happy to flush that money down the drain, even though the whole network is close to bankruptcy and desperately needs every penny?

The answer is simple. Shutting down WBAI's fund drive will render it as financially destitute as they claim it is. Not to mention that -- by wiping WBAI's programs off the air -- they hope to drive away its loyal
listeners (and their financial support), which would further shred WBAI's bank account. The end result would be to make WBAI so financially bereft that the KPFA faction can go into court and (truthfully) tell the judge: "See for yourself, Your Honor. WBAI
is totally hopeless. We have to sell or swap its signal in order to save the network."
NOTE: Another reason for the abrupt shutdown may be that Pacifica just had an election. The plotters may well fear being voted off the board and replaced by directors who are against selling WBAI. Since balloting
ends October 15, and results will be announced on November 1, they could not afford to wait - and decided to strike while still in power. This appears to be the case, since the plotters have already begun maneuvering behind the scenes to declare the election
invalid.
OF course, the plotters are not wrong to say that WBAI has financial problems. But all of Pacifica's stations have financial problems. In fact, KPFA is probably in more financial trouble than WBAI. The last cash
flow report issued by Pacifica showed KPFA with negative cash flow of more than $400,000 over the past 24 months. But you won't see that in Pacifica's teary-eyed press release about how sorry it is to throw WBAI under the bus (a press release, by the way,
that was written by the KPFA plotters).

In addition to KPFA's $400,000 shortfall, its listener membership -- which generates 90% of its income - has seriously declined. Since 2003, the station has lost more than half of its members, and a quarter of
its income. And in the eight years from 2008 to 2016, KPFA lost over $1.9 million, and will report a loss for 2019.

But at WBAI, the reverse is true.

WBAI's membership (alone among the 5 Pacifica stations) is actually going up. That being the case, wouldn't it make more sense for the plotters to sell KPFA to save the network? Or even to sell WPFW, which actually
paid less in central services in 2018-2019 than WBAI did? It would make sense, if they cared more about saving the network than saving their own a**es.

The financial pretext for closing WBAI is even more suspect when one realizes that the cost of shutting down WBAI will require the expenditure of hundreds of thousands of dollars to fulfill employee severance requirements,
unsettled labor lawsuits, the salaries of two employees whom the FCC requires to be "in control of the air" at the station, and the cost of the transmitter lease at $14,000 a month - while not a penny of income will be available to offset those costs from
a shut down WBAI.

So it may actually cost more to close WBAI than to keep it running

But that doesn't bother the plotters. They have their eyes on the prize - the $50-$100 million windfall they expect to pocket when they sell WBAI.

But ... why do I keep saying that the plotters want to sell WBAI, when they publicly denied it in their press release? Do I disbelieve them? Uh, yes. Because they have already admitted elsewhere that they do want
to swap or sell WBAI. They also say that they want to "set the stations free," by which they mean break up the Pacifica network, which even its enemies have failed to accomplish in over 60 years of trying. How ironic, then, that the breakup may now be accomplished
by Pacifica's supposed friends.

However, before WBAI can be swapped or sold, and the network dismembered in order to "set the stations free," Pacifica's bylaws must be changed. That is because, as they now stand, they make it virtually impossible
to swap or sell a station, let alone "set the stations free." So the plotters have created a vehicle for changing the bylaws. They call it the "Pacifica Restructuring Project." You have probably received an email from the Restructuring Project recently, asking
you to sign a petition to change the bylaws. Their proposed changes would abolish our Local Station Boards, water down the right of members to elect the people who run the network and, most important, transform Pacifica's system of governance from elective
to mostly appointive (with the appointers being themselves).

They want to do this, they say, because Pacifica has problems. (No kidding.) But to solve those problems, they want you to appoint them as bosses -- answerable not to the listeners, but only to themselves. They
claim that this is the only way to Make Pacifica Great Again. (Not a bad slogan. Somebody should use it in a political campaign.)

But before we agree to exchange Pacifica's democratic system of governance for an autocracy, we should all remember Winston Churchill's exasperated remark: "Democracy is the worst form of government except for
all the others."

If the "Pacifica Restructuring Project" is able to un-democratize Pacifica, its leaders will no longer have to worry about, let alone pay attention to, its thousands of pesky listeners, who foolishly believe (who
have the nerve to believe!) that they deserve a say in who controls the network that their millions of dollars in donations keeps on the air.

Their strategy - no secret from anyone who reads their public statements - is simple and straightforward. (1) Shut down WBAI. (2) Change the bylaws so that WBAI can be sold. (3) Use the sale proceeds from WBAI
to refurbish KPFA. (4) Break up the network by "setting the stations free." This has long been a cherished project of the faction that runs KPFA, so it is no surprise to learn that virtually all 9 principals (bosses? chiefs? czars?) of the "Pacifica Restructuring
Project" are ... from KPFA.

What is the latest news on WBAI's status?

Right now, the fate of WBAI hangs by a thread called a TRO (Temporary Restraining Order). As soon as WBAI was shut down on Monday morning, a quick-acting group of WBAI staff and listeners rushed into New York Supreme
Court to ask for a temporary restraining order reversing WBAI's shutdown. They were successful and Judge Frank P. Nero issued the order that same day. His order stays and reverses the shutdown of WBAI, allows the staff back into the building, forces return
of the computers that the KPFA plotters took away, and re-establishes regular WBAI programming. However, the judge's order ends October 18, when WBAI's defenders - and the KPFA faction that wants to sell it -- will face off in court.

Amusingly, the KPFA faction is attempting to discredit Judge Nero and his order. They claim that (1) he is conflicted because he appeared on some WBAI programs in the past; and (2) as a New York judge, he has no
jurisdiction in this matter because Pacifica is headquartered in California. Which is like saying that a New York policeman has no power to arrest a drunken driver in Brooklyn because the driver is a resident of California. Actually, there is more than sufficient
Pacifica nexus in New York to allow a New York judge to issue a TRO to prevent "irreparable harm" to New York citizens

Initially, the Pacifica plotters ignored Judge Nero's order. But after WBAI filed a Contempt of Court complaint against them yesterday afternoon, the locks were changed back and the staff was allowed into the station.
I don't know whether the computers were returned. And as I write this (1:30am, October 10) Pacifica still has not redirected the transmitter signal back to WBAI. So the station is still broadcasting a patchwork of odds and ends from KPFA.

Should you show up in court on October 18?

If you wish to show solidarity and community support for WBAI, you might want to show up for the October 18 hearing. Will it help? Maybe - because although judges try to be objective, they also count noses. The
hearing will be held at 60 Centre Street, in Manhattan, Room 315, Judge Frank P. Nero presiding.

P.S. The quick-acting WBAI heroes who successfully petitioned the
judge for a TRO are:
CAROLYN McGUIRE, Chair of the WBAI Local Board;
HARVEY EPSTEIN, Listener Member of the Pacifica Foundation and WBAI;
ARTHUR SCHWARTZ, Staff Member of the Pacifica Foundation and WBAI;

A NEW DAY IS COMING FOR PACIFICA!
You can help make it happen

September 17, 2019

Dear Pacifica Radio Members of KPFA, KPFK, KPFT, WBAI, or WPFW,

I am part of the Pacifica Restructuring Project. We are proposing new Bylaws for Pacifica that will significantly streamline Pacifica's governance structure. (See below for a list of who we are.)

One of the major difficulties Pacifica has faced over the years is an unwieldy and contentious governance system that has crippled its management in addressing serious issues such as the changing media landscape,
the changing fundraising paradigm of younger generations, and the necessity for first rate programming to inform, educate and inspire listeners and supporters in this critical time.

With a 22-member National Board of Directors and five 24-member Local Station Boards, Pacifica has not been able to respond effectively.

Quite frankly, Pacifica stations have not produced local or national boards of directors capable of addressing these issues without such destructive polarization that management cannot make and carry out plans
of action without the board countermanding those plans or stifling them or micromanaging them to the point of complete breakdown and inefficacy.

To fix this problem we are proposing new Bylaws to change the Pacifica governance structure. Under the new structure the Pacifica National Board of Directors would be reduced in number from 22 to 11 members. Five
of the Directors would be elected directly by the members at each of the five Pacifica radio stations, and 6 "At-Large" Directors would be elected by the board itself. The "At-Large" directors would be chosen for their skills and leadership in areas including
alternative media and movement work, financial planning and fundraising work, and their commitment to Pacifica's peace and justice mission and purpose since its establishment in 1949. The five Local Station Boards at the five stations would be dissolved and
the current members would be encouraged to join each station's Community Advisory Board (CAB). The CABs are required by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and would operate under their requirements which you can read here.

Today, facing mounting debt (on account of hard decisions not taken years ago, and because of declining listenership), Pacifica will sink below the waves if it does not make a major course correction in its structure
and leadership.

We ask for your help in making this happen.
If your station membership is current, you can help by signing the Petition to the Pacifica Board of Directors to hold a membership vote to approve the new Bylaws here.

If your membership is not current, you can still help by going to your station website and donating $25 or more on line, then come back and sign our Petition. (Be sure to save your receipt in case there is any
glitch in processing your membership.)

KPFA KPFK KPFT WBAI WPFW

Once the Petition is signed by at least 1% of the Pacifica membership, including listener and staff members at KPFA, KPFK, KPFT, WBAI, and WPFW, or about 450-600 signatures, it will be submitted to the Pacifica
Board of Directors. They will then vote on whether to approve the proposed Bylaws. Whether or not the Board approves them, the proposed Bylaws will then be put to a vote of approval of the Members and, if a majority of a 10% quorum of the Membership votes
to approve them, then they will become the new Pacifica Bylaws!

OCTOBER 11:
VERY SERIOUS DEVELOPMENTS AT PACIFICA


October 11, 2019

Dear Pacifica Radio Members of KPFA, KPFK, KPFT, WBAI, or WPFW,

As you may have heard, last Monday Pacifica's interim Executive Director, John Vernile, went to WBAI in New York City. He laid off the employees, and cancelled local programming, replacing it with curated programs
from all around the network called "Pacifica Across America." You can listen to it online at www.wbai.org.

Understandably, many WBAI listeners are upset and do not understand what happened or why.

The Pacifica National Board will be voting tonight or very soon on whether to ratify Mr. Vernile's actions -- the PNB appears to be split down the middle -- 11 to 11. They are being inundated with upset and angry
messages from WBAI listeners. They also need to hear from the rest of us who do not want to lose our stations or see the whole Pacifica Network go down.

You can reach them by email at pnb@pacifica.org

Some background info: In April of 2018 Pacifica took out a $3.25 million loan to payoff a judgment against Pacifica for WBAI's unpaid rent for their broadcast tower on top of the Empire State Building and to break
the lease. That loan is secured by everything Pacifica owns, and it comes due in full on April 1st, 2021. So far, there is no clear plan to come up with the funds to pay it off. In that context, Pacifica's move to stop the financial bleeding at WBAI makes
painful sense.

Here is a message I sent to the PNB this morning. Perhaps you could use it for some ideas for your own messages in support of Mr. Vernile's actions.

Dear PNB Members,

I urge you to vote to support John Vernile's very painful, difficult and courageous actions at WBAI last Monday.

I believe the best hope for Pacifica now is strong and stable executive leadership with a cohesive board to back him up. The lender (on the $3.25 million loan) is watching Pacifica carefully, and very worried about
their loan, I am sure. Seeing that strong action has been taken to stop the bleeding at WBAI, and seeing that the board supports that action, would be reassuring to them. Then, I believe John Vernile would have a reasonable chance to negotiate with them about
extending the term of the loan. Without that, I would not be surprised to see them foreclose on their loan (as is their right under multiple conditions we have not been able to fulfill so far).
We, the whole network, have done our best for WBAI. It wasn't enough, and has exhausted the reserves and resources that are necessary to get the rest of our stations on a better footing.
The audits tell the story, and I'm sure the lender carefully reads them. As of the last audited financial statements (9/30/17) WBAI owed $4 million in inter-division payables to the National Office and the other
Stations. That included unpaid Central Services and other funds advanced to WBAI to cover expenses. WBAI's total net deficit as of that date was ($6.6 million), including $2.36 million in accrued rent. You can see for yourself here: https://www.pacifica.org/finance/audit_2017.pdf
Ten years before (as of 9/30/07) WBAI's interdivision payables were $502,389, and they had a net deficit of ($99,603). See for yourself here: https://www.pacifica.org/finance/audit_2007.pdf
That is a total loss of $7.1 million over the past 10 years at WBAI.

The individual station info is in the "Supplemental Information" at the back of the audits.
Both Hurricane Sandy and the Empire State lease took a terrible toll on WBAI.

The rest of the network did the best we could to help WBAI ... the national office cut everything they could, and more. I say more because for a couple of years there they didn't have the staff or money to do critical
things like do the audits (the 2017 audit was filed 2 years late!).
We (the rest of the network) sold the National Office building (paid for by KPFA listeners as part of the mortgage on the KPFA building). We (the rest of the network) loaned them money. We (the rest of the network)
picked up as much of the slack as we could with national expenses and increased Central Services payments. We (the rest of the network) got them a new transmitter. And, finally, we (the rest of the network) mortgaged the KPFA, KPFK, and KPFT buildings (and
everything else we own, including intellectual property at the Archives, all our furniture, fixtures, equipment, etc.) to get the loan to payoff Empire State and break the lease.
But our financial condition continues to deteriorate across the network. Listenership and donations continue declining. We have to change. We have to keep WBAI on the air with programs from elsewhere, while we
strengthen the rest of our stations. Then, if the lender gives us a couple more years, we can reinvest in WBAI and bring back local programming ... stronger and better I hope.
So, again, I strongly urge you to support John Vernile. Our lender is watching. It is important for any negotiations with them that John have the strong backing of his board for stabilizing Pacifica and turning
things around. Without that, I really do fear that all will be lost.
Best wishes and many thanks,
~Carol Spooner

"FUND DRIVE SCHEDULE"

This quaint custom refers to the indefiniteness of the program times and maybe program presentations depending on the need to go where the pledge calls are. A regular change is that Thom Hartmann is usually scheduled
to start a bit earlier so we can appeal to our largest audience without cutting much (if any) of his show.

2-3 Gary Null, Progressive Commentary Hour – The new Kashmir Crisis and growing tensions between India and Pakistan

Farooq Kathwari [Far-ook Kah-t-waree] is an international respected Kashmiri-American business man who has been the Chairman, President and CEO of furniture chain store Ethan Allen Interiors Inc, now with outlets
across America, Canada, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. In 1985, at the age of 41, Far-ook was selected as company and continues to hold this position and took the firm public in 1993. Aside from his business acumen and reputation for making Ethan Allen
one of the most employee-friendly corporations in America, Mr. Kat-waree has also been a leading thought-leader in international attempts to simmer India-Pakistan tensions over Kashmir and to restore the original international policies that provided Kashmiris
a degree of autonomy. Recently, Kashmir has again reached global headlines after India’s Hindu-Nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi placed the India-controlled region into a military lockdown and rounding up 400 of Kashmir’s democratically elected politicians,
aides, officials and separatist intellectuals who continue to sit in Kashmir’s overflowing prisons. Besides his diplomatic efforts, Far-ook is also a founder of the Kashmir Study Group that created the Livingston Proposal as a peaceful initiative to bring
stability to Kashmir’s divisions. He is the chair of Refugees International and the co-Chair of the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council, started during the election of Trump to fight against hate speech and crimes targeting Jews and Muslims. Last week Far-ook’s
personal autobiography, “Trailblazer: From the Mountains of Kashmir to the Summit of Global Business and Beyond,” was published which includes the history and political background of the Kashmir crisis and this intermediary activities to bring sanity between
India’s and Pakistan’s government.FREE DOWNLOAD: http://prn.fm/progressive-commentary-hour-new-kashmir-crisis-growing-tensions-india-pakistan/
