The Botton Line:  You cannot classify documents ex post facto in order to cover your own ass when it has been sitting on the legal/illegal hot seat...


There are a couple - at least - of articles you might find very interesting:   Here are the Links

And there it all is.

But Wait!  There's more!  elections are coming and it apparently turns on talk, language.  No.  Not those elections...I mean the Navajo elections. 

1, The Portland City Council voted 4-0 Wednesday night to appeal part of a federal judge's order on periodic court hearings to track the progress of police reforms despite widespread opposition from the community.Mayor Charlie Hales, who serves as police commissioner, and Commissioner Amanda Fritz pushed for the appeal. They won the support of Commissioner Steve Novick and the reluctant support of Commissioner Dan Saltzman. Commissioner Nick Fish had a conflict and wasn't present.The city must file its notice of appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals by next Tuesday.
 
2, EarthJustice has this for us: drought hysteria must have hit the tophats in sacramento hard.   The California Department of Food and Agriculture has published a draft of an environmental plan giving the agency authority to spray toxic pesticides anywhere in California, at any time into the indefinite future. The blanket approval would allow no opportunity for affected communities to stop the spraying.
 
3, CIA Director John Brennan in March claiming allegations of CIA hacking were “beyond the scope of reason.” (From CSPAN broadcast of Council on Foreign Relations event)
CIA agents “impersonated Senate staffers” while the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence was producing its report on the agency’s rendition, detention and interrogation program, according to Huffington Post.
4, Barry Kissin is a researcher, lawyer and activist in Frederick, Maryland, where Fort Detrick, a major facility of the United States Army Medical Command installation, is based. He has closely monitored the expansion of the facility. He said today: "The fear is that the government is doing things in the biolabs in west Africa that it might be reluctant to do at Fort Detrick and other facilities inside the U.S."  In 2010, Kissin wrote a piece that noted: "The [Frederick] News-Post has published articles that reflect Fort Detrick has already aerosolized plague, and looks forward to a new facility, only recently announced, that plans on aerosolizing Ebola. Why in the world would we be aerosolizing plague and Ebola? The official answer is that this is necessary to the development of our defenses. Left out of the answer is the plain fact that these purported defenses are against ghastly threats that we ourselves are originating."
5, In Ottawa yesterday an unidentified gunman shot and killed a Canadian soldier before entering the Canadian Parliament building and opening fire. Parliament was in session and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was evacuated as law enforcement exchanged gunfire with the assailant who was subsequently killed.
 
5 .  So yesterday in California  prison  officials agreed to end a policy in which it segregated prison inmates after riots based on their race as a way to prevent further violence.Officers have frequently locked inmates in their cells based on which races were involved in the riot, even if individual inmates of that race were not directly implicated.The agreement to end the practice is spelled out in a 21-page settlement involving a lawsuit first filed in 2008. The agreement says future lockdowns may not be imposed or lifted based on race or ethnicity.
 
6, Four former employees of the private security firm formerly known as Blackwater were convicted Wednesday of a mass shooting during the Iraq War.One man was convicted of first-degree murder and three others were convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of 14 people.The incident, which took place in Baghdad’s Nisour Square, resulted in the death or injury of 37 people and was emblematic of the kind of free-for-all violence that was all-too typical of the conflict.
 
7,  Invoking tribal health and cultural survival, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has declared a ban on fracking on its sovereign land in what is today North Carolina.

Laws are for People Who Can't Afford Lawyers...I've said it before.......

Wed, 10/22/2014

from The Nation, October 8th 2014:


"Ever since New York Times reporter James Risen received his first subpoena from the Justice Department more than six years ago, occasional news reports have skimmed the surface of a complex story. The usual gloss depicts a conflict between top officials who want to protect classified information and a journalist who wants to protect confidential sources. Meanwhile, Jeffrey Sterling—a former undercover CIA officer now facing charges under the Espionage Act, whom the feds want Risen to identify as his source—is cast as a disgruntled ex-employee in trouble for allegedly spilling the classified beans.
 
But the standard media narratives about Risen and Sterling have skipped over deep patterns of government retaliation against recalcitrant journalists and whistleblowers. Those patterns are undermining press freedom, precluding the informed consent of the governed and hiding crucial aspects of US foreign policy. The recent announcement of Eric Holder’s resignation as attorney general has come after nearly five years of the Obama administration extending and intensifying the use of the Justice Department for retribution against investigative journalism and whistleblowing."

'CitizenFour' comes out this Friday, October 24th.  Brace yourself because once Laura Poitras's film has built a celebrity safehouse wherein high level whistleblowers can seek refuge, the night sky will light up like a Korean Christmas tree with the consciences of NSA officials.  That's the Dr.  Jekyll side of the American Security Industrial Complex.

Silence of The Laws: A Gag on Mumia and All Prisoners' Constitutional Right to Speak...

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Wed, 10/15/2014
The Pennsylvania Senate will vote this week on House bill HB2533 and Senate bill SB508. The bill was written in response to political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal’s commencement speech at Goddard College, and is a clear attempt to silence Mumia and other prisoners and formerly incarcerated people. We believe that this legislation is not actually an attempt to help victims, but a cynical move by legislators to stop people in prison from speaking out against an unjust system.
 
 
The Governor has pledged to sign it. This bill will make it illegal for prisoners to speak publicly AND allow the AG or DA to sue prisoners and the folks that assist them.   This legislation was fast tracked in direct response to the positive support Mumia received for his commencement speech. 
This legislation was created to silence political prisoners like Mumia Abu Jamal, Kerry Shakaboona Marshall, Bryant Arroyo and  Russell Shoatz whose can be heard around the world, in spite of their physical captivity. Consider how much their voices have contributed to our intellectual heritage and collective growth. Consider all that we have learned about prison conditions and prisoner rights violations from those imprisoned.
Please call your legislators and demand that they vote NO on HB2533 and SB508.
Last week, PA Representative Mike Vereb introduced a bill (HB2533) & SB508 called the “Revictimization Relief Act,” which would allow victims, District Attorneys, and the Attorney General to sue people who have been convicted of “personal injury” crimes for speaking out publicly if it causes the victim of the crime “mental anguish.”
This repressive legislation could set far-reaching precedents severely limiting freedom of speech and our collective ability to take on the state.
While to us this seems like a clear violation of the first amendment, unfortunately the PA General Assembly doesn’t appear to agree, and they have fast-tracked the bill for approval and amended another bill (SB508) to include the same language. The legislation could be voted on as early as today, Wednesday, October 15th.

Down the Rabbit Hole with Christopher Wahnhoff

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Tue, 10/14/2014
First the latest on my guest, Chris Wahnhoff:...
then the headlines we were forced by time to chase through:

In Calhoun County, Michigan— Pretrial motions will be heard by Calhoun County on Monday for the pending trial of pipeline protestor Chris Wahmhoff. This man, who skateboarded into the expansion project of Enbridge Line 6B in June 2013, now faces potentially two years in prison. The case had been dismissed two times by Calhoun County Judge Kingsley, however the Michigan Supreme Court has overturned the dismissal and recently refused to read an appeal from Wahmhoff’s attorney.  Now with trial pending, the protestor’s legal team will be bringing motions for expert witnesses on climate change as a part of their defense.
 
2,   The Jordan Cove Terminal is still on the table and the grease is swiftly congealing...Thursday, October 16th 2014: The Coos County Board of Commissioners Public Hearing on MASSIVE ORDINANCE CHANGES
What we need is citizens looking at all the proposed changes to the Coos County Zoning and Land Development Ordinance and writing up their issues and bringing them before the Coos County Commissioners on Oct 16th.
The Commissioners have only allowed 30 minutes for a hearing on the first section of Ordinance code changes for AM-14-10.  We need to come out in force and make them extend the hearing to a later date where we are given sufficient time to review and comment on all these changes
 
 
3,  From the Ohlone Billboard Improvement Project courtesy of the indybay media outlet:  "Ohlone Land, Huchin Lives Buried, Return the Ancestors, #decolonizethebay" wheat pasted over 45 foot, 4 story billboard over the 580. A demonstration of continued resistance against genocidal colonization.
In the spirit of resistance we give voice to the people of the land. Universities and colleges collecting remains like debt collectors. Alive is the soul of the land. Humming bird is the first mother of the people from the creation story. Basket designs weaving the strength of the past.
 
 
 
4,  Marius Mason is an anarchist and an environmental and animal rights prisoner serving nearly 22 years in federal prison for acts of sabotage carried out in defense of the planet. No one was injured in any of these actions. After being threatened with a life sentence in 2009, he pleaded guilty to charges of arson at a Michigan State University lab researching Genetically Modified Organisms for Monsanto, and admitted to 12 other acts of property damage. The sentencing judge applied a so-called “terrorism enhancement” to his term which added almost two more years than the maximum requested by the prosecution. This is the harshest punishment of anyone convicted of environmental sabotage to date.  Just last week in the New York Times, a columnist who was attempting to answer the talk-show rhetoric that has been going around (that white folks don’t get the reason for the riots in Ferguson) – stated that it was in fact a natural outcome of the economic inequalities and police brutality that many folks encountered, not just in Ferguson but all over the country. As part of this discussion, the columnist also noted the disproportionate numbers of people of color in prison, as well as the growing economic disparity between races.
Clearly we have much work to do as a society on the issue of race, but at least the problem is being discussed publicly and honestly. ABC has contributed to this debate with integrity.
 
5,  Statewide - On a media call this morning Citizen Action of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Democracy Campaign called into question relationship between large campaign donations and the rejection of federal funds for BadgerCare. When Governor Walker rejected federal funds for BadgerCare, an estimated 87,000 Wisconsin residents were forced to purchase private health insurance coverage from the health insurance marketplace. Tens of thousands fell into an entirely unnecessary coverage gap.
The new data shows that the insurance industry was the biggest beneficiary of the decision to reject the funds for BadgerCare, and have donated massively to the campaigns of Governor Walker and Legislators who pushed the policy through.
 
 
6,  There is a 2,500 square mile methane hot spot — located near the Four Corners border of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah — is spewing methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that is 20 times more effective at causing global warming than carbon dioxide. The methane is likely not from fracking, NASA said, since the data analyzed is from 2003 to 2008, before the fracking boom. Instead, the scientists hypothesize that the leaks are coming from coalbed methane extraction, a process of getting natural gas from underground coal beds.
 
7, A fiery CN train derailment in rural Saskatchewan has many people asking what could have happened if the accident occurred in a more populated area.
The 100-car freight train derailed Tuesday about 190 kilometres east of Saskatoon. Twenty-six cars left the track, including six carrying dangerous goods. Two cars containing petroleum distillate caught fire, sending 30-metre flames into the air. Several explosions were also confirmed.

Where Torture is Justified, Justice is Torture...Marcy Wheeler on Risen Roulette

Mon, 10/13/2014
My guest today, Marcy Wheeler has been blasting awat, chip by byte att he judicial-industrial complex...
Letting the air out of its tires, so to speak.  And today, after floating through the weekend  zeitgeist, comes this:  Former director of the National Security Agency  Michael Hayden, says he doesn't see the need for the U.S. government to prosecute the New York Times reporter who revealed the agency's warrantless surveillance of Americans.
Michael Hayden says he is "conflicted" about whether reporter James Risen should be compelled to reveal his sources.
Risen is facing potential jail time as he battles government efforts to force him to testify at the trial of a former CIA officer accused of leaking classified information.

But Wait...There's More!

Thousands of protestors converged at 250 demonstrations throughout the world to call for a global moratorium against fracking yesterday.
The global day of action, Global Frackdown, was called for the third year in a row by Food and Water Watch.
Thousands convened throughout the British Isles and Europe as well. Hundreds attended protests in Wales, London, and Lancashire, while the "frack head puppet" emerged at Holyrood in Scotland. Protests also occurred in Lithuania, Bulgaria, and Spain. Reports from one protest in Madrid saw miles of people of marching in the street.

Chris Hedges v. The USA Patriot Act

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Wed, 10/08/2014
The question we have to ask is, How did we get here?  And there is a simple answer:  The USA Patriot Act, which no one  has read because no one believed that it would be in force this long. And there are other questions attendant upon this curious piece of ad hoc legislation:  On the subject of climate change:  why are we talking about stopping the coal and oil trains and trucks when we started out asking why are we still mining coal and oil?  National Security dear children and the energy business has become a free for all because the USA Patriot Act justifies anything it can call national security.  and where did this word 'homeland' come from - aside from the Third Reich, of course - ?Fact is that this 'homeland is about to become a 'wasteland' if we don't come to our senses and stop ranking national security above responsible environment stewardship.
You see where this is going don't you? So much of America's current cesspool of problems stem from The Act.  No government is going to be able to extricate us from this one.  This time around it really is up to We The People...



Columbus was a genocidal maniac who is celebrated annually for “discovering” a land that was already inhabited by a people he would go on to enslave, torture and kill.   On that basis, the Seattle City Council voted unanimously Monday to do a holiday swap.
The second Monday in October will now be known as Indigenous Peoples’ Day, and it will honor first Americans rather than first conquistadors.
A contingent of Italian Americans was on hand at Monday’s meeting to protest. Columbus may have been Italian, but so was Benito Mussolini. This Italian-American blogger would just as soon we not celebrate the worst of our ancestors.

It's Not About 'Stop the Oil Train' - It's 'stop the Oil: solartopia is the Ticket to a Green Future

This from Solartopia

NET NEUTRALITY defines the core nervous system of what’s left of global democracy. The corporations want it killed. This demands everyone’s immediate attention.
 
CORPORATE PERSONHOOD must die by Constitutional Amendment.
 
ELECTION PROTECTION demands universal hand-counted paper ballots, an end to Jim Crow vote theft and a ban on the corporate billions that poison what’s left of our democracy.
 
SOCIAL JUSTICE, including workplace democracy and a universal living wage, means we can all live and work with integrity, no matter our diverse religions, race, gender, sexual preference, etc. Poverty is an unsustainable form of planet-killing pollution.
 
PEACE means ending the suicidal idiocy of permanent imperial war.

That's Harvey Wassermann, the man with strong answers to the climate question, the concentric rings of solidarity.
Here's another idea to go along with all the above: 
If the corporate world is a depraved reality addicted to Growth at any cost, then why not shift from Quantitative growth or qualitative growth: not 'More' but 'Better'...

The Roar of Silence: Why Censoring Mumia is a Fail

program date: 
Fri, 10/03/2014
My guest today, Noelle Hanrahan, has been standing at the gates of Hell shouting truth to power for as longer as Mumia abu Jamal has been in Hell shouting truth to power.  The man’s whole life  is lived on line, in the ether, on the airwaves, above the Cloud.   Hanrahan is a private investigator and journalist based in Philadelphia – where it all began - .where she is director of Prison Radio.
So the other day the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that:: "Senator Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) sent an outraged letter to the Vermont college that will have Mumia Abu-Jamal as a commencement speaker, urging the school to revoke its invitation to the convicted cop-killer.   On Sunday the school is due to have Abu-Jamal address 20 fall graduates in a pre-recorded speech." The Washington Post: "Goddard College sparks outrage with invitation to jailed cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal."
 
 
Congressman Peter DeFazio says he believes the Jordan Cove Energy Project will move forward as fewer people seem to be completely opposed to the project.
The world's last remaining forest wilderness is rapidly being lost -- and much of this is taking place in Canada, not in Brazil or Indonesia where deforestation has so far made the headlines.
A jury in Dallas, TX today awarded $2.925 million to plaintiffs Bob and Lisa Parr, who sued Barnett shale fracking company Aruba Petroleum Inc. for intentionally causing a nuisance on the Parr's property which impacted their health and ruined their drinking water.  
Hundreds of protesters faced off riot police on Thursday outside the Capodimonte palace in the southern Italian city of Naples where the European Central Bank is holding one of its regular rate-setting meetings.

Mission Creep: Cascadia is Closer to Syria than You Think

Fri, 09/26/2014
1,  The U.S. Forest Service has tightened restrictions on media coverage in vast swaths of the country’s wild lands, requiring reporters to pay for a permit and get permission before shooting a photo or video in federally designated wilderness areas.
Under rules being finalized in November, a reporter who met a biologist, wildlife advocate or whistleblower alleging neglect in any of the nation’s 100 million acres of wilderness would first need special approval to shoot photos or videos even on an iPhone.
Permits cost up to $1,500, says Forest Service spokesman Larry Chambers, and reporters who don’t get a permit could face fines up to $1,000.
 
 
2,   Oregon election officials fined the campaign of Republican governor candidate Dennis Richardson on Thursday because he was late to report that he stayed rent-free in a Lake Oswego home.
Secretary of State Kate Brown’s office issued the $365 fine after election officials determined that the use of the house was an “in-kind” contribution that must be reported within 30 days.
Richardson and his wife, who live in Southern Oregon, stayed in a supporter’s home over the summer to be closer to the Portland metro area and the bulk of voters. His campaign reported three months of rent, valued at $6,820, on Tuesday. Election officials said $4,400 from June and July were considered late.
 
 
3,  Six years ago climate activists, Native American groups, ranchers, farmers, students and other began their ongoing campaign to block the proposed construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, intended to carry tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf of Mexico to be shipped overseas.
In that time, more than 2,000 activists have been arrested, more than 50,000 rallied in Washington, D.C. in February 2013 to protest the pipeline, and countless small groups have gathered in their own communities to demonstrate against it. Because the pipeline is unbuilt, 1,818,530,000 barrels of tar sands oil remain in the ground, and more than one billion metric tons of CO2 has been keep out of the atmosphere.
 
 
 
4, Why is this tale of Salem going to wag all the dogs in the race?Portland Fire & Rescue didn't break election laws when it featured Gov. John Kitzhaber in a public service announcement, according to a letter sent to the bureau on Wednesday by the Secretary of State's Office.
Conservative radio host Lars Larson filed an election complaint in August arguing that the fire bureau's online video gave unfair airtime to Kitzhaber, who is running for his fourth term against Rep. Dennis Richardson (R-Central Point).
Fire bureau representatives had argued that the 21-second video, shown only on its website and Youtube, was created to promote CPR training -- not Kitzhaber's reelection efforts.
Because we are so close to chaos we can feel its breath on the backs of our necks…

Francisco Aguirre - a community activist who first came to the U.S. from El Salvador two decades ago As an immigrant activist's stay at an Oregon church to avoid deportation nears a week, he's gaining supporters, including Portland's mayor, and the church plans a rally for him.
He has vowed to remain at Augustana Lutheran Church in Portland until he's able to resolve his immigration case. In recent years, as immigration reform has stalled, churches around the country have offered sanctuary to immigrants who lack legal status because federal officials generally don't make arrests at sensitive locations such as churches.

Comments

membership means more

your threat of quitting your membership gives me two options for analysis:

1) you gave money to Theresa via KBOO.

2) if Theresa died tomorrow, you'd give up your membership.

my interpretation

1) that's cool, man.  you support community-based radio based solely on your dedication to one weekly half-hour show. that demonstrates that Theresa's voice represents/intrigues you (and many, many others); however you don't feel represented by any one of the other 500 people who volunteer their time and energy in the 24/7 endevour, and you don't value the input (and miraculous existence!) of the other 5-10,000 members and ten times as many listeners; neither do you support the KBOO mission of including as many underrepresented voices as possible on the air, with natural turnover, schedule changes and opportunities as new people arrive.  Membership gives you the power to affect the decision-making, which is why you gave money to Theresa via KBOO; and, by golly, you will do everything in your power to keep her on the air, and you want the KBOO website visitors to know how you feel when they read the comments.  You'd even like them to join you in your fight.

2) wow.

my opinion

Personally, Theresa's show is one of my  favourites and there are plenty of shows that I not only don't like or don't listen to, but also complain about out loud.  It's my radio station, and, like my family, I will not be quiet when they need to shape up or ship out.

writing inflammatory statements on the webpage will remain simply that: inflammatory statements with a reaction or two from trolls (see the 20 pages of Anonymous written about me because of the audio I submitted that Jenka edited), which, in the end, result in: NOTHING.  If you want to chat with others online, that's fine, but you should know that nothing said here is considered in the Committee meetings. It's just an informal public forum, not policy binding.

my advice

Instead of threatening us (volunteers, members, listeners and our very existence), why not use your valuable internet time to phrase it as, for example, a question to which one of us could easily respond:  "Have there been any changes to Theresa's show?  I noticed lately that it has been preemented or even cut.  It is my favourite show. [I fear Air Cascadia will take its place--not necessary but very telling that you chose Chris' page to write it--ed.]. "  You can copy the question to Theresa's email (though I know from experience she doesn't respond) and/or print it out and put it in her cubby hole at the station. And/or show up to the meetings.  And/or call Theresa during her show--she takes calls, you know.  Ask her if she'll train or mentor you to do the same kind of work she does.

p.s.  Air Cascadia basically is the AM News is Chris Andreae: i was engineering {i'm flattered that you liked it}and was very sad when it was cut--but that is the way of the station; we adhere and adapt to the ever-fluctuating needs of the larger community--but i watched, with great pleasure, as it morphed into Air Cascadia.  Though i adore Dennis Bernstein, 15 less minutes of his voice is no skin off my back. 

Highting!

The anchor news program

The anchor news program Democracy Now, conveiniently aired at 11 AM so that all could tune in was moved to 7 AM with a result that most if not all of the people who work nights won't be tuning in as they are still sleeping. Also missed the 40th anniversary bash as it was inconveinently held from 4 to 10 Pm, on a weekday, which would exclude anyone working swing from attending unless they took a day off. Why couldn't this have been held on a Saturday or Sunday?
Air Cascadia is a very rough and unpolished program that leaves me tuning to OPB or just turning it off.
The choppy, emergent voice of Cris Andreae is certainly a large part in that.
If it is true that Press Watch will be axed for this then it will be an easy decision to withhold future pledges from this listener.

What happened to Presswatch?

Is Air Cascadia taking over what Therisa has been doing? If so, I may give up my membership. First, the am news gets axed to accomodate Democracy Now, now is Presswatch going under the plow?
