Transform Now Ploughshares Support Group: A Long, Shining Line in the Sand

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Thu, 02/20/2014
It’s a strange nation we’ve built in which men and women – one, an 84 year-old nun, fer crissakes – are arrested and charged with “destruction of property” at a nuclear weapons factory…But it happens, Oh, it happens. Ralph Hutchinson, Paul Magno and Ellen Barfield, fellow activists with Transform Now Ploughshares Support Group bring you a firsthand report on the sentencing of fellow activists for their protest at Tennessee's  Oak Ridge Nuclear Weapons Plant.
 
Eugene police are gunning for a “security forum” that takes  on “School Safety and Dangerous Acts of Violence.”  The Eugene, Springfield, University of Oregon and Junction City police chiefs will be among the law enforcement officials will be there.  But wait…
Let's parse that: isn't enforced poverty and its criminalization a form of violence against the disenfranchised?  
 
The question: Is social media making us dumber? And the simple answer: Yes. Now that social media are speeding up and exaggerating the copycat trend, it’s easy to see where humankind might be getting dumber, if grabbing information from someone else substitutes for exercising intellectual ability.
 
For years, decades even,  reporters have been allowed to sit in on and observe  the Eugene School  Board meetings  on condition they do not report on the proceedings. Last night however The  School Board voted 4-3 to bar the media from all future closed meetings on labor negotiations.
 
The state Land Use Board of Appeals has overturned Lane County’s decision to grant a special use permit to a private events center called Prindel Creek Farm in the Siuslaw National Forest.  Quite simply: No music and musical camping in the forest.  Now if the presenters had planed to clear-cut trees on public land..well that's a lot easier to arrange: just ask Governow Kitzhaber, He'll sign  off on it.
 
 
The Oregon Logging Conference opened in  Eugene yesterday to the roar of the greasepaint, the smell of the crowd.  And it was a pretty smelly crowd.  Thanks to a new report from an international market research firm attendance is expected to soar this year as the industry continues to recover from the blows dealt by the recession and  the forestry industry additional grounds for some optimism.
 
 
6, President Barack Obama  was In Mexico Wednesday for a summit with his North American counterparts — Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper — to discuss issues of trade, security and energy....in other words, a little Transpacific Partnership and arm-wrestling
 
'Sanction' is one of those odd-duck words that lays claim to two contradictory meanings.  Sometimes the second unintended meaning is the more appropriate descriptor.  Here, for instance:  The US Treasury Department is sanctioning a Colombian suspected of leading an international drug trafficking and money laundering organization that exported nearly 100 tons of cocaine a year from Colombia. Because if all the drug money laundered through the Streets of Wall, well, the Wall would fall.
 
Human Rights Watch released a report on the drone strike Thursday, citing interviews with eight witnesses and relatives of the dead as well as Yemeni officials. The report said four Hellfire missiles were fired at a wedding procession of 11 vehicles on Dec. 12, 2013, in Radda in southern Yemen, killing at least 12 men and wounding at least 15 others, six of them seriously.
 
And shortly thereafter, the Department of Homeland Security warned US travelers that Disgruntled targets of American diplomacy may try to bring down airliners by blowing their shoes up.

Three days on the road to Bethlem: McGovern on Bozos, Bezos & the CIA

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Thu, 12/19/2013
Ray McGovern , ex-CIA insider and the smartest, wittiest voice on the Left recently weighed in on the collusion ('like thieves'..actually, they are thieves) between Jeff Bezos and his behemoth Mother-of-all-Wads, Amazon, the Washington Post, Mother-of-all-Words, and the CIA Mother-of-all-Wars. Or, 'Up the Amazon without a Paddle' by Josef onrad. I could go on. We have a vicious scandal here in Cascadia: money that was appropriated for jobs and training for the disabled was somehow, Well, appropriated period. The longer the path between two points, the more twists and turns, the less money comes out at the end. And the Portland Police will many of them receive raises, but not the desired drug dispensation. And still more http://www.accuracy.org/release/cia-cloud-over-jeff-bezoss-washington-post/

'De-Spare Change': Warsaw, Weber & The Plan

program:

program date: 
Tue, 11/26/2013



It's always and all ways "Sensitive dependence on initial conditions...", Rupert Sheldrake. Climate change is the prroblem Chaos Theory is made for.  The problem itself is complex - but it isn't complicated. Up to this point - and ' this point' is the risible futile, impotent COP19 outcome - most of the proposed solutions are either disaster capitalist technofix in nature or they are halt comsuption solves, which Americans ignore entirely and developing nations reject on grounds that they deserve the growth that got us all in this mess together.
So we have a complex solution to a complicated problem...Let's see what Michael Dorsey and Even Weber have come up with in terms of a Plan...

Slippery Business
‘Name That Law’: The Reality Show rolls out  ‘The Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act’ or ‘Chuckie’, if you prefer..Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO),  (And the American Legislative Council held his dick for him while he spoke (That’s why they call it ‘dick-tate???)  legislation hands  oil and gas companies carte blanche to drill on public lands. If signed into law, the legislation would automatically approve onshore drilling permits if the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) failed to act on them in 60 days.
And if you don’t like it, you can cough up $5,000 which buys you a permit to protest.
 
It paves! It clears! It Cuts! – But Wait, there’s more!  Lamborn's proposed bill would direct the DOI to begin commercial leasing for the development of oil shale, a controversial type of production that has been largely banned by the United States since President Herbert Hoover prohibited the leasing of federal lands for oil shale. Oil shale - which should not be confused with the more common "shale oil" - is a type of rock that needs to be heated to nearly 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to produce crude oil, which then has to be refined.

Spooky Business
   Gary Ruskin, Director of the Center for Corporate Policy, Ruskin wrote the just-released report "Spooky Business: Corporate Espionage Against Nonprofit Organizations" for the group Essential Information. Turns out that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Walmart, Monsanto, Bank of America, Dow Chemical, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Chevron, Burger King, McDonald’s, Shell, BP, BAE, Sasol, Brown & Williamson and E.ON -- have been linked to espionage or planned espionage against nonprofit organizations, activists and whistleblowers.
Ruskin:
"Giant corporations are employing highly unethical or illegal tools of espionage against nonprofit organizations with near impunity. Our report documents how corporations hire shady investigative firms staffed with former employees of the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, U.S. military, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Secret Service and local police departments to target nonprofit organizations.”

Go Norse, Young Man: David Swanson v. Killer Drones

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Mon, 11/18/2013
 
 
Last week – November 15th to be precise – author and contributor to War Is A Crime.org, David Swanson wrote a piece that knocked me sideways.  Not so much for the story but for the implications.  If Germany can say ‘No’ to the ultimate drug, then surely , other nations will follow. This a triangle situation: Israel and America are the world’s top peddlers of Death from Above and Germany is a super power in that its economic might is bolstered by it global credibility.
 
 
Author of When the World Outlawed War, War Is A Lie and Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union.
 
Swanson writes: “Germany had planned to buy a fleet of "Euro Hawk" killer drones -- perhaps in an effort to bring the European Union up to speed with certain other Nobel Peace laureates.” But what if one Nobel Laureate is on the skids and the ‘Mini-merica’ is increasingly viewed as a loose canon in a tight corner?
 
I asked Swanson how public pressure can effect change when the government does not appear to be listening and I was assured that government is lisdtening.  Like the teenager that it is, the US government just seems to be ignoring us.
Not so, says Swanson. Here’s the link: http://warisacrime.org/content/germany-says-no-weaponized-drones

Here's some audio from Kevin Gosztola.  Kevin is attending the court martial proceedings at Fort Meade, and he spoke to us during a recess. Judge Denise Lind's decision not to dismiss the 'Aiding the Enemy' charge could well be a doubleedged sword for government prosecutors - depending on their skill in using it.  One side or another, it isn't the sword of justice and it sure and hell is not mightier than the 'Pen'...

The CRC: the Bridge with no beginning and no end.

 

Bad timing for Kitzhaber and company… The Washington Legislature is ready to put the bow on its dreaded Special Session and there is still a lot that won’t fit in the box.  The last thing lawmakers want to go hunting for is the money to pay for a bridge that people don’t want, the state doesn’t need and no one but Governor Kitzhaber, so it seems, really believes will solve congestion problems.  There are academics who study this problem; they publish learned monographs on the subject of congestion.  Ands what they have found is that adding mre freeways just adds to the traffic problems.

And  then there’s the height issue: not high enough for river freight, says the Coast Guard.  The Coast Guard has veto authority over the project, and CRC officials expect the agency to decide by Sept. 30 whether to issue the necessary bridge permit. but there may not be a decision from the Coast Guard by then.  CRC planners need $450 million from Olympia and a Coast Guard permit by mid-October in order to apply for federal funding they describe as crucial and about to expire.

Ray McGovern on Bradley Manning re: Lynne Stewart v. Resistance Ecology

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Fri, 05/31/2013

Join us at Portland State University

 

for the first annual Resistance Ecology Conference!

 

 

 

 

 

It's the first annual Resistance Ecology Conference in Portland, Oregon, May 31st to June 2nd 2013, at Portland State University (PSU). This conference is a cooperative effort between the Student Animal Liberation Coalition (PSU), Oregon Jericho Movement and a new movement organization: Resistance Ecology. The conference advocates for a movement of resistance that is multi-layered, unified, diverse and intersectional. This is the first of what we hope will become an annual Resistance Ecology Conference. Previously, the organizers of this conference have helped to organize the Let Live and Law and Disorder Conferences in Portland, Oregon as well as the Portland Anarchist Bookfair. There will be speakers, panels, and workshops occurring all three days.

 

 

 And then there are those times when you don't have to do much at all...justt kick back and watch the rodeo.

 

Monsanto apparently pulled a classic 'Farmer's Daughter' 10 years ago; The Luche Libre of seed apparently sowed some 'Wild Oat's’ in Eastern Oregon.  Monsanto – for unknown reasons -  killed the ‘Werewheat plan. 

And I  would really like to know why…

Now the bottom falls out of Oregon’s Big Ag Business with Japan.  When the shit storm hits Europe, watch what happen to Wall Street…

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!

air cascadia

im a conservative right wing trucker and i think cris andrae is the greatest broadcaster on the radio. i try to listen when i dont need traffic reports.
her scathing commentary is the best. i would join kboo but i fear america will become too weak and barry will force me to find a green job soon . keep up the good work

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?
