NO NUKE BLUES by Vic Sadot, Harvey Wasserman interview, Fukushima on Political Analysis Radio Show by Sandy LeonVest

Berkeley “Broadside Balladeer” Vic Sadot song “NO NUKE BLUES” was featured on a popular radio show on the Progressive Radio Network hosted by the esteemed host Sandy LeonVest on March 12, 2013. The archive link is posted here for those who would like to listen to the show:

On this March 12, 2013 on-line radio show,  Political Analysis, host Sandy LeonVest airs live audio clips from the March 11, 2011 nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan. These chilling excerpts, originally made public by Scientific American, reveal the extent of the chaos and panic that characterized the March 11, 2011 disaster – both on March 11th, and in the days following the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan, when the extent of the damage began to be realize. “No Nuke Blues” by activist “Truth Troubadour” Vic Sadot comes along at 22:35 in the 52:42 minute program. Sandy is joined later in the hour by Harvey Wasserman for a discussion on the future of nuclear power, with Sandy worrying that the newly released report coming from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), predicting that nuclear power will continue to grow worldwide, does not bode well for our collective futures, and a more optimistic Harvey arguing that, all things considered, this is a very unlikely scenario.

TRUTH IN LIGHTS video by Berkeley’s BetterBadNews Team

TRUTH IN LIGHTS by betterbadnewz Channel on YouTube – On February 18, 2010 the Berkeley based media group, BetterBadNews, released a satirical video clip that introduced the idea of adding a third light beam to the twin light beams reinstalled each year at ground zero on the anniversary of Sept 11, 2001. The idea was presented to a strategy session of the Architects and Engineers for 911 Truth as a way to call attention to WTC Building 7, which was not hit by a plane and yet disintegrated to dust and rubble in merely 7 seconds. See The idea was to creatively disrupt the disinformation spread each year when the twin light beam memorial (Tribute In Light) is switched on. At 9:11 PM on Sept 11, 2010 a small pick up truck with additional search lights found an appropriate place to park and the switch was flipped. Watch the video at BetterBadNewz Channel:

David Ray Griffin, author of 36 books on various topics, including philosophy, theology, philosophy of science, and about a dozen books on 9/11, said “The truth about the collapse of WTC 7 has been effectively hidden, even though it has existed in plain sight all these years. Even the bare fact of the collapse itself has been so effectively hidden that in 2006 over 40 percent of the American public did not know about it, and in 2009 a judge in New York City (where it happened), upon hearing a reference to Building 7, asked: “Building what?”. Griffin continues, “Recognizing the high correlation between those who know about the collapse of WTC 7 and those who believe that a new – or rather a real 9/11 investigation is needed. I propose that the international 9/11 Truth Movement initiate, starting this September, a world-wide, year-long “Building What?” campaign. Through this campaign, we would seek to make the fact of its collapse so widely known that the mention of Building 7 would never again evoke the question: “Building What?” In 2009, Griffin released “The Mysterious Collapse of World Trade Center 7: Why the Final Official Report about 9/11 is Unscientific and False”.


Family members of victims of 9/11 participated in a “Building What?” advertising campaign, but the name was later changed to “Remember Building 7”. Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine, who died in World Trade Center building #1, stated, “More than ten years since the attacks that took my son’s life, we have not received an impartial, evidence-based accounting of the events of that day, even though they have been used to justify a war we are told will not end in our lifetimes. The collapse of Building 7 is one anomaly among many, but we focus on Building 7 because it is clear that when America becomes aware of it, common sense will prevail, public demand for the truth will grow and it will pave the way to a broader investigation of 9/11. Please join me in calling upon the Manhattan District Attorney and the New York City Council to open a new investigation.”
