As of Saturday, October 17, we are at approximately $217.000 in pledges with a $400,000. necessary goal. So we expect we'll have to continue the fund drive beyond October 22until the end of the month. The national board wants to enforce their elimination of 1/3 of our budget (don't forget Pearl Harbor, but Remember 'Safe Harbor' which might indicate the 'improvement' of the station in the minds of some) We have just had to lay off four staff members. Other L.A. California NPR stations have had to lay off up to 5 times that amount! But WE are listener sponsored, so don't give up!! (818) 985-5735,

12-1:30 Danny Sheehan


('Eight Cases That Changed America' - 1965-1975)

In the spring of 2012, Daniel Sheehan taught a class at UCSC outlining the major cases he has litigated over the years. The class starts with stories from Harvard Law School and works through the Pentagon Papers, the Karen Silkwood case, and the Iran Contra scandal, to name a few. Many of the stories told in the class are also told in Sheehan’s first book, ‘The People’s Advocate.’ Available at and

Class of 4-17-2012: The New Bedford riots, right of journalists to protect their confidential news sources.

(This class is amazingly relevant, from police hassling Black People and race riots to the beginnings of the turning of the Supreme Court to far right. The beginning was with Nixon putting William Rehnquist in a Chief Justice)


1:30-2 Jennifer Francis, “Hurricanes and Climate Change”

Jennifer Francis became Senior Scientist at the Woods Hole Research Center after being a research professor at Rutgers Universitys Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences.

She gave an interview to Miami Herald reporter Alex Harris on Hurricanes & Climate Change a day after the beginning of the official annual hurricane season that goes from June first to November 30th, giving a forecast that in essence came true.

Live on Zoom this became one of the most detailed and fact-filled conversations about how natural phenomena such as El Nino and La Nina, and even dust storms from the Sahara desert, interact with warmer oceans and one foot higher sea levels and changes in the ocean currents that make hurricane seasons longer and stronger. All this plays out in the Gulf of Mexico and up the East of the US

Alex Harris is staff reporter for the Miami Herald with an impressive grad student level of understanding of the science.

By Children’s Health Defense Team (October 6, 2020)

In the fourth episode of our second season of “TRUTH” with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Kennedy and noted Australian health freedom advocate Taylor Winterstein had a thought-provoking discussion about the status of the COVID crisis and how it has affected vaccine safety advocacy.

The many aspects of the current situation Kennedy and Winterstein addressed include

Increasing difficulty in getting mainstream media to challenge the pharmaceutical paradigm

Getting around the escalating censorship on social media

Children’s Health Defense (CHD) lawsuit against Facebook

The unmitigated trampling of democracy and liberty taking place in Melbourne and Victoria, Australia

The labelling of those who question the government/pharma narrative as “conspiracy theorists”

Playing Russian Roulette with a Covid-19 Vaccine

Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD

Progressive Radio Network, October 15, 2020

America, we need to have a conversation. It is a very serious and dire conversation that has been intentionally ignored and swept under the rug for far too long. It concerns a dialogue that our entire mainstream media, in its conventional blindness, refuses to acknowledge. Yet its consequences are potentially severe and perhaps deadly. It may not eventually have an impact upon you personally nor your health, but it will surely have a profound adverse effect upon someone you know or perhaps even a loved one.

3-4 The Gary Null Show - 10.16.20

A Scientific Look at Botanical Plants and Supplements Against Coronavirus

Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD

Progressive Radio Network, March 10, 2020

In recent weeks, the coronavirus pandemic has dominated the news at the expense of everything else that is critical and urgent in our lives. As panic increases and more cases are reported daily, health-minded people are eager or even desperate to know whether there are ways to strengthen the body's immune system to offer some protection from this specific upper respiratory infection.

There are six known strains of coronavirus, four which are associated with the common cold or moderate respiratory infections. Everyone has likely had a coronavirus infection at some time in their lives. However, two strains -- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome or SARS and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) -- are more severe. Between the years 2002-2004 and 2014-2018 these strains respectively were observed to be lethal. However, during these periods, total deaths were under one thousand. SARS has the ability to infect the lower respiratory system as well. The current strain being called Covid19 is a new mutation that is being recognized as a novel SARS. As of this writing, the current coronvirus has been attributed to over 4,000 deaths, the large majority among the elderly. In a recent press conference the Surgeon General remarked that the average age of death was 80… (MUCH more info with download…)

But there is a caveat. A very serious caveat.

Sometimes the universe has an unusual way of providing warnings that we have an opportunity to either heed or disregard to our benefit or detriment. On December 31, 2019 in order to usher in the New Year, China reported the first case of an "unusual pneumonia" in its port city of Wuhan. A week later on January 7th, the pathogen was identified as a novel strain of coronavirus. That same month, the prestigious journal Vaccine, published a study conducted by the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Branch at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Researchers investigated viral interference due to receiving the flu shot; in other words, does the flu vaccine make a recipient more susceptible to other non-influenza respiratory viral infections? The study's conclusions state "Vaccine derived virus interference was significantly associated with coronavirus and human metapneumovirus." …

Therefore we have scoured the peer-reviewed literature on the National Institutes of Health's Library of Medicine database to identify compelling studies that may warrant vitamin, antioxidant, and botanical supplementation as a means to protect ourselves from coronavirus and other viral infections. These have been shown to either have strong antiviral properties in general or have known biomolecular effects to strengthen the immune system against microbial infection. We are not offering prescriptions. This is just a summary of some important scientific information for you to make better informed decisions for protecting yourself while the coronavirus wends its course.

Yes, we should be concerned about the coronavirus' high infectious rate. At the moment, the primary solutions being sought to handle the crisis is to spend billions of dollars to develop an effective vaccine and an accurate diagnostic kit. Additionally, according to a study out of Johns Hopkins University's School of Public Health, the incubation period is estimated at 5.1 days for being infected and capable of infecting others without displaying symptoms. But there is no mention in the medical community nor the mainstream media about what we can do to strengthen our immune system.

Yes, a high quality 99% barrier mask is important, especially if worn in a crowded environment. Repeated washing of our hands for a full minute with soap water. Rub surfaces with alcohol at home and work and allow it to sit for 30 seconds. Likewise, wipe down door handles and telephone receivers. Quarantining people who have been exposed is important until they test negative. Closing schools is prudent. And if a vaccine is eventually developed and shown to be safe and effective that is another recourse. However none of the above protects the immune system in the event of coming into contact with the virus. We believe that the recommended natural solutions shared above, since it is supported in the peer reviewed scientific literature, is something everyone can do. Besides, it is safe and not expensive. Therefore these natural solutions too should be considered as a viable and effective recourse to lessen this pandemic's fatal effects.

12-1 Dave Emory, ''For the Record #1147 & FTR #1148 - The Space Plane and Covid-19: The Paperclip Legacy, Parts 2 and 3''

⋅SEPTEMBER 2, 2020 ⋅

Recorded as the 2020 GOP convention was in full swing against the background of escalating violence in the streets of American cities, these programs set forth history fundamental to the development of the modern GOP and Nazi/SS elements that were incorporated into the foundation of the U.S. intelligence system at the end of World War II. Those elements, in turn, are inextricably linked with the GOP.

Before that discussion, however, the program highlights yet another element in the Wall Street/Third Reich/Swiss political and corporate maneuvering that set the stage for postwar Transatlantic fascism.

Once again, Allen Dulles and his connections are front and center. With Bernie Sanders and AOC garnering rhetorical gravitas from the so-called progressive sector, there has been discussion of former Vice President Henry Wallace and his highly progressive political agenda. The nature of the discussion has centered on Wallace’s political defenestration by what has been termed “the Democratic Party’s Establishment.”

In fact, Wallace’s political demise was due to his own indiscretion. His brother-in-law was Charles Bruggmann, the Swiss ambassador to the United States. With the massive investment in the Swiss economy by Third Reich finance and industry and with key holding companies in Switzerland dominating significant elements of the German-American corporate relationship, Bruggmann had a vested interest in keeping Nazi Germany abreast of U.S. plans and did so through the Abwehr and Allen Dulles.

” . . . . Both organizations received a mass of high-value intelligence via the Swiss ambassador to Washington, Dr. Charles Bruggmann. Yet Bruggmann was no spy: his source was his brother-in-law, Henry Wallace—who happened to be the Vice President of the United States. Wallace was a popular, left-wing New Dealer; privy to many of America’s most important secrets, he was also notoriously indiscreet. . . .”

Allen Dulles

In addition to communicating the Treasury Department’s plans to de-industrialize Germany to prevent future wars, the Bruggmann/Abwehr/Dulles axis was instrumental in betraying Operation Safehaven, the plan to interdict the Nazi flight capital program that crystallized as the Bormann flight capital program...
