Community Questions KPFA Censorship, Content, and Commitment to Free Speech Radio, and Anti-War Truth Journalism

No Lies Radio has embedded the “Truth Troubadour” YouTube Channel video titled “No Lies Radio Report Public Comments KPFA Local Station Board 9 15 18”, which was done by No Lies Radio & Berkeley Calling Blog reporter Vic Sadot.

The meeting was held in the North Berkeley Senior Center. It was advertised at Pacifica Network Meeting Board that it was the regular public community LSB monthly business meeting; that it would have a KPFA Manager’s Report, and that it would include closed Executive Session as part of the meeting, followed by a Public Comments session at the end. The Board deserves credit for reversing that order so that public comments could be heard by General Manager Quincy McCoy and the community-elected Local Station Board could hear public comments before they asked people to leave and that invite them back to have a say if anyone was still there at 2:45 PM. After the Public Comments the meeting moved into Executive Session, which generally results with a report to the KPFA members and SF Bay Area community at a later date.

The 27 minute; 13 second video is an excerpt made from the “Public Comments” section of the archived audio of the KPFA Local Station Board, which was a little over 2 hours and 34 minutes. Eighteen speakers took the opportunity to state their current concerns to the community elected local station board, management, and staff in attendance.

The main topics of concern were the following: (1) Censorship of Guns And Butter Radio; (2) A call for KPFA to support a resolution supporting the Journalism Rights of Julian Assange; (3) Content Issues: Promotion of Mockingbird News Lies about RussiaGate, Democratic Party talking points, 9/11 Truth, foreign terrorists waging a war against the elected government of Syria, Military Intervention, and issues related to investigating historical accuracy by the use of weaponized terminology such as “Anti-Semitism” to prevent criticism of the violent military Apartheid occupation of Palestine, and the calculated use of “Hate Speech” as a cover for the Suppression and De-Platforming of those engaging in “Free Speech”.

There is a disagreement over First Amendment Press Rights at KPFA Pacifica Meetings advertised as “public meetings” as distinguished from “executive session” meetings. At the last KPFA Local Station Board the LSB voted to not allow video recordings; thus censoring the press in attendance. Labor Video YouTube Channel was ordered to not film at the previous meeting and they put their camera away. In the No Lies Radio coverage of the last KPFA LSB meeting you can see that there were 2 men acting as “security” for the KPFA LSB who told the NoLiesRadio reporter, Vic Sadot, to stop filming.

NO LIES RADIO Exclusive Report Published 8-19-18: “Guns & Butter banned by KPFA” features Bonnie Faulkner and others in the “Public Comments” session at the community elected KPFA Local Station Board Meeting on 8-18-18. Also documented on video were attempts to censor the First Amendment Press Rights of the press in attendance. Watch Bonnie and “Public Comments” now embedded at No Lies Radio at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel by Vic Sadot reporting on Censorship at “Free Speech Radio” in Berkeley.  More on this challenge to reporter’s rights below.

Ann Garrisson asked the KPFA Local Station Board, “Do you reall want to go on record as opposing a resolution in support of Julian Assange”? She told the Sept 15, 2018 gathering about her participation in the #Unity4J programs, and that Daniel Ellsberg of Pentagon Papers fame, Joe Lauria, current editor of Consortium News founded by the late Robert Parry, were participants and signatories as well as Michael Parenti. She said that Daniel Ellsberg was surprised to hear that there was resistance to supporting Assange and wikileaks.

At the 8-18-18 LSB Meeting, No Lies Radio reporter Vic Sadot was twice told to stop filming during the Public Comments session by two different men acting as volunteer “security”. One later apologized and stated that he thought it was not right after he had thought about it. Although the No Lies Radio reporter continued to film, as directed by the owner of NoLiesRadio, Allan Rees, the reporter was effectively prevented from covering some of the comments of Bonnie Faulkner, host of the censored 17 year old summarily terminated program called “Guns And Butter Radio”, and all of the comments by Allan Rees of NoLiesRadio, a Pacifica Affiliate.

On 9-15-18 Allan Rees again claimed First Amendment Press Rights on behalf of No Lies Radio, an independent Pacifica affiate stattion, to Christina Huggins, current appointed LSB Chair, who presented papers claiming an LSB right to ban video coverage. Allan Rees decided to not film at this time to avoid confrontation, time wasted in courts, and delays in reporting the public comments for 9-15-18.

An audio is usually recorded except when “executive sessions” are invoked. This NoLiesRadio video report by Vic Sadot attempts to provide visuals to represent past and current historical context to the public comments audio provided by the Pacifica archive. Whereas, the current KPFA LSB seems to have a problem with transparency in blocking other Press from video reporting its public meeting portions in spite of having an option to shout out the press and community byy invoking an “executive session”, which may sometimes be needed to discuss personnel employment related issues or matters in litigation.

Daniel Borgström of Veterans for Peace, who has a great blog called “Daniel’s Free Speech Zone” was keen to alert those in attendance to alert the community to the fact that KPFA LSB elections are coming soon. He stated that MONDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2018 is the DEADLINE for qualifying to be a voting member in the next election.  Daniel Borgström announced the formation of a slate to be called “Rescue Pacifica” for which he passed out an email sign-up sheet. He asked people to join to work together for their interests in KPFA and Pacifica, and you can sign up now by emailing to danielfortyone@gmail.com
Borgström encouraged people to find candidates with a real committment to Free Speech Radio and anti-war truth journalism, as well as transparency in governance without censorship.

Architect Scott Page, an active member of Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, came out to his second KPFA Board meeting in support of Bonnie Faulkner and to speak against the termination of her long-standing GunsAndButter Radio Show. He reminisced with respect and appreciation about Bonnie and her 11 year old suddenly censored show for all the reporting and interviewing that has been presented. At 18 minutes into the video you can hear Scott say,I first heard of KPFA in 1975 when the station had the courage to read Phillip Agee’s ‘Inside the Company’ for a complete week. And it really changed my whole political structure. I didn’t know anything about what was going on. And I say, can’t we give one show one hour a week to do the thing?”

Censorship of Guns And Butter Radio Show and NoLiesRadio Press Rights at KPFA PACIFICA Free Speech Radio

No Lies Radio Reporter Vic Sadot was told not to film the “Public Comments” section of the elected KPFA Local Station Board “Town Hall Meeting”. Two different men tried to stop the reporter from filming, first of Bonnie Faulkner. A second man serving as “security” blocked the camera view of Allan Rees, the owner of NoLiesRadio, an on-line  Pacifica Network affiliate station, who had assigned the reporter to report on the meeting because it was advertised to the community members as a public meeting.

NEXT KPFA LOCAL STATION BOARD MEETING NOTICE Announces there will be an “Executive Session” and “Public Comments” will come after that. Why not hear from the public first, and then have the “private” meeting of community elected representatives? See: KPFA LSB Regular Meeting and Executive Session SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2018, 11 am – 3: 30 pm North Berkeley Senior Center, 1901 Hearst Ave, Berkeley, CA 94709. Public Comments are scheduled to begin about 2:45 PM. 

Watch Allan Rees of No Lies Radio, a Pacifica affiliate, speaking against the censorship of Bonnie Faulkner and the wipe-out of 17 years of Guns & Butter Radio shows from the KPFA Pacifica archives by order of current management.

When “Fake Progressives” Crack Down on Progressive Voices: Bonnie Faulkner’s Guns and Butter on KPFA by Bonnie Faulkner and Prof Michel Chossodovsky, August 21, 2018 Global Research statement: 

The consensus among “Progressives” and Left Democrats is that Alex Jones is a “conspiracy theorist” (allegedly involved in hate speech) and censorship against him has nothing to do with First Amendment rights which guarantee Freedom of Speech. While the media has provided extensive coverage of the Alex Jones saga, the crackdown on progressive voices by self-proclaimed “Progressives” has not hit the headlines. Bonnie Faulkner’s Guns and Butter weekly program on KPFA has been closed down by Pacifica. It was among the station’s most popular programs over a period of 17 years. Not a word from the mainstream media. This decision against Bonnie Faulkner is also intended to suppress the voices of prominent authors, activists, lawyers, scientists, politicians and scholars who have contributed to Bonnie’s weekly program over the past 17 years. Let us ensure that Bonnie Faulkner’s program goes back on the air. Our thanks to No Lies Radio dot org and TruthTroubadour (YouTube Channel).

Scott Creighton denounced the censorship of Bonnie Faulkner and the flushing down the Memory Hole of her 17 years of archives of Guns and Butter Radio shows at KPFA Pacifica Radio. (WBAI & NoLiesRadio will continue to broadcast new Guns & Butter Radio shows)
Scott Creighton aka Willy Loman, recently had his “American Everyman” YouTube channel and his 11 year old “American Everyman” WordPress blog wiped out of existence.

It is worthy to note that Scott had an entire section of his American Everyman Blog devoted to 9/11 Truth! Scott continues with ChurchDog42 YouTube Channel and “Nomadic Everyman” Blog at Blogspot. While all the mainstream CorpGov media talk about the suppression of the “free speech” rights of fake “truther” Alex Jones, a lot of sites that are much better, more consistent, and delivering deeper documentation than “DisInfo Wars”, that attack over several platforms at once is being used as a smokescreen cover to obscure the repression of sites asking the most important questions about false flag agendas, psy-ops, and mass media manipulation. We say NO to Censorship!

Alison Weir was speaking in San Jose while we were doing this livestream. So her presentation for this panel was pre-recorded. Mockingbird 2.0: Propaganda, Fake News, and Censorship panel. Alison Weir’s topic was “How Pro-Israel Thought Police Are Silencing Americans”. http://ifamericaknew.org/about_us/

aobj-logo-promo

Alison Weir is a journalist who reports at “If Americans Knew” blog, President of the Council for the National Interest (USA), and author of “Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the US was used to create Israel”. http://againstourbetterjudgment.com
The Saturday panel on Palestine was one of the panels censored from participation by the “Left Forum” the week before in NYC. In addition to Alison Weir, the Deep Truth Livestream panel includes Ziyad Shihadah – Being Gazan: Transcending the Psychological Blockade (pre-recorded); Samir Salem – Documenting Gaza: A Visual Catalog of Brutality and Resistance; and Kathy Shihadah – Invisible Blockades: Impediments to Peace in Gaza.

Excerpts from Israel-Palestine News by IfAmericansKnew blog: “The Left Forum, the largest leftist conference in the country, has a history of censoring views they do not support. In 2017, four of our five panels were banned. Our group responded by organizing a highly successful alternative conference we dubbed the “Left Out Forum.” This year, 2018, all of our panels were banned, once again with zero explanation. Refusing to be silent, we created an alternative online conference for the weekend following the Left Forum and called it Deep Truth: Visionaries Speak Out…

Despite last year’s challenges, we were hopeful and confident that the Left Forum would accept our panels this year in light of their 2018 Left Forum theme, “Towards a New Strategy for the Left.” Their theme proclaimed: “Unity allows for differences and embraces other voices—it does not squelch them. We do not have to block dissent and critical self-analysis.” In January, 2018, we wrote the Board to say we were delighted with their theme and hoped to work with them this year, but given the difficulties we had the year before, we requested they guarantee us that if they approved our panels, they would not renege and censor them. We were answered with silence.”

Screenshot of Suzie Dawson of wikileaks, speaking as part of the Mockingbird 2.0: Propaganda, Fake News, and Censorship panel. Her topic was titled “Julian Assange: Censored to Death?” Much of the discussion was about Assange’s history and current status, about his position as a journalist, and what she has learned as a wikileaks insider. The moderator Tom Kiely posed one tough question about a comment by Julian Assage where he said he found 9/11 conspiracy theorists to be “annoying”. She seemed unaware of the comment by Assange. She claimed that there was a lot of 9/11 related revelations posted at wikileaks website. It seemed to be a fair discussion of legitimate concerns. 9/11 Truth activists will be sure to follow her advice and go to see what’s actually posted at wikileaks about the crimes of 9/11 and the Anthrax Attacks, and how they were used as traumatic conditioning of the public and as a “Deep State” policy coup on the US political policies at home and abroad.

Screenshot of Vic Sadot, organizer of the Berkeley No Lies Radio Livestream Listening Room, asking a question that challenges the Truth Movement to get involved in demanding the release of the 6,700 pages of the 2014 Senate Report on CIA Torture. In December 2016 President Obama classified the Torture Report top secret for another 12 years. Thus Obama made the actual report unavailable to the public that paid for the report, and delaying or burying all prospects for prosecutions and the legal discovery process. The public only got a 500 page summary of the Senate Torture Report, which discredited the US image and integrity globally since there is no attempt to get right with international treaties against torture to which the USA is a signatory.

Here is an excellent review of the 500 page summary of the Senate Report on US Torture released to the Public by the Senate Intelligence Committee in December 2014: Torture Architect Tries to Justify Program … Fails Miserably By Washington’s Blog Global Research, December 16, 2014 http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/12/torture-911-evil-last-13-years.html

Join the BORDC campaign! The Bill of Rights Defense Committee: Will the Senate Torture Report Disappear? May 2, 2016 by Chip Gibbons. We demand the release of all 6,700 pages of the US Senate Report on the US Use of Torture! 

This “Deep State” illegality of torture was green-lighted for continuation by the Obama regime’s complicity in the cover-up and refusal to prosecute what is clearly illegal in US and international law. So Trump appointed torture advocates to the State Dept and the CIA and got enough “bi-partisan” support from both of the pro-war corporate monopolization parties to get the criminals appointed in 2018.

Panelist Ray McGovern was roughed up by Capitol Police for shouting out questions that the Congressional Panel refused to ask of President Trump’s nominee CIA nominee Gina Haspel, who had operated a secret torture site in Thailand and had a role in destroying the video evidence of the torture sessions.

Vic cited the 2013 documentary by Adnan Zuberi, “9/11 in the Academic Community”, and the two professors quoted in the trailer for the film to present a question about why the US Truth Movement has not prioritized the issue of “Torture Accountability” while instead spending enormous amounts of time and energy trying to get some “classified” 28 pages from a long discredited 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry Report on 9/11 that served as the first official cover-up of the crimes of 9/11 and the subsequent Anthrax attacks on the US Congress itself.

Professor Michael Truscello of Mount Royal University states: “25% of the footnotes in the 9/11 Commission Report are based on torture testimony.” Professor Graeme MacQueen of McMaster University, author of “The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for Domestic Conspiracy”, says, “They made it (torture) the core of their story and they d
on’t discuss that these guys were tortured.”

SF Bay Area Spring 2018 Action in Oakland CA To End the Wars at Home and Abroad

In the aftermath of President Trump’s rash and reckless launching of missiles on Syria in some illogical and illegal display of brute destructive power, there was a call by a broad coalition of anti-war groups to rally in various cities in the USA and around the world. The theme on the Bay Area notice I heeded said “End the Wars at Home & Abroad”, and that’s the link to reports from various locations gathered in one place.

This blog will have a mix of photos that I took at the colorful and spirited Anti-War march on April 15, 2018 in Oakland, CA, and some screenshots from the 3 minute video I made called Salute to the Spring 2018 Oakland Anti-War Rally Participants”.

Lake Merritt made a beautiful natural back-drop to the stage as you can see in the photos. The speaker above is Pierre Labossiere of the Haiti Action Committee. International Solidarity Against War was a theme I appreciated among the speakers. The event began at 11 am with a gathering of the crowd at the Amphitheater on Lake Merritt. It was sunny and festive and something of a grand re-union of veteran peace and justice activists from throughout the SF Bay Area mixed with a new wave of youthful anti-war demonstrators. I certainly enjoyed chatting with the kindred spirits I’ve come to know since moving from Delaware and planting my roots here in 2008.  At 11:30 am speakers and music began to be presented.

Lucky for me that I got a photo and video clip of myself by Gypsy Taub. I returned the favor by taking photos of her and her kids. I was heeding the 911TAP (9/11 Truth Action Project) call that was posted by IAmTheFaceOfTruth Facebook 9/11 Truth visibility group to demonstrate and communicate 9/11 Truth at these Spring 2018 Anti-War Marches. I was also heeding the call by this local San Francisco Bay Area Anti-War Coalition that was posted on Facebook. There are lots of links from other partiicpants posted there since the event.

One thing that motivated me and hundreds of thousands of other people of conscience to get out to the Spring 2018 Anti-War Action was that Trump had just bombed Syria without consulting the US Congress or waiting for evidence from an investigation. He put himself on shaky Constitutional grounds there. But the Democrats seem to want war too. And they would rather talk about Russia-gate and Stormy Daniels and Trump Tweets… They will talk about anything but how Obama continued Bush policies and how Hillary Clinton could lose to a chump like Trump by seeming to be the greater of two evils as the pro-war candidate.

The last time Trump bombed Syria after the last false flag chemical attack one year earlier, he did so under pressure from Israel and the NeoCons and NeoLiberals occupying the swamp of corruption that is the US Congress in the District of Columbia. This demo took place a couple days after IDF snipers had murdered unarmed protesters in the Gaza strip of occupied Palestine for calling for an end to the Apartheid occupation and for recognition of their right to return to their lands in Palestine. The war on Yemen by Saudi Arabia with US-Israel support was also addressed. Likewise Trump’s bellicose threats toward Iran and North Korea, and the seemingly endless war on Afghanistan where the black market of poppy fields and vast mineral resources are the plunder.

Jenkins misleads by linking Pentagon plane impact theory to AE911Truth

What really happened at the Pentagon on 9/11? The “debate” in the 9/11 Truth Movement seems to not be completely on the level when it comes to the Pentagon. Craig McKee’s Truth And Shadows Blog is no place to push unsubstantiated BS, or lame excuses for outright suppression of competing views. This becomes very clear when one reads these articles about what happened in the 9/11 Truth movement about what happened at the Pentagon on 9/11/01. Highly Recommended Reading!

Cab Driver Involved In 9/11 Pentagon Attack Admits “It Was Planned” VERY INTERESTING!! (14:53) Published on Feb 1, 2012 at hiptothedig YouTube Channel. Video #82 in the “9/11 & Other False Flag Investigations Playlist at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel.

The taxi driver claims a light pole smashed into the windshield of his car, damaging only the windshield. Despite his claim that part of the pole was laying across the hood of his car but left no scratches or marks in the paint or metal. The interview starts out a little slow getting to the point, but watch his whole interview and you’ll start scratching your head at what this guy is claiming. The real kicker is what he says at the end (11:58), that “it was planned.” This is a snippet of an excellent documentary titled “National Security Alert – 9/11 Pentagon Attack” featuring eyewitness accounts (which includes D.C. Police Officers and city employees) that contradict the “official” version version of events by testifying that the approach of a jet plane was on the north side of the CITGO Gas Station, which is not the path that would account for 5 fallen light poles being hit by a plane.

More absurd arguments on the Pentagon: ‘propaganda team’ sets its sights on Griffin 7-16-12 by Craig McKee in Truth And Shadows Blog: “In Chapter 7 of David Ray Griffin’s most recent book, 9/11 Ten Years Later: When State Crimes Against Democracy Succeed, Griffin makes a strong case for no plane impact and shows how weak the positions of Chandler, Legge, Cole, and Hoffmann really are…” http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/more-absurd-arguments-on-the-pentagon-propaganda-team-sets-its-sights-on-griffin

Comment by Craig McKee at Truth and Shadows July 17, 2012 Blog, “David Ray Griffin, Barrie Zwicker Support CIT’s ‘Staged Evidence’ Scenario”: Here’s what Griffin wrote on page 265 of “Debunking 9/11 Debunking” about the witness accounts compiled by CIT: “This testimony, besides throwing into doubt the testimony of Don Mason and the other people who claimed to have seen the light poles clipped, suggests something even more important: that the five light poles were staged to provide evidence for the official story. If so, then we must suspect that other evidence for the official story was also planted. If any of the evidence is demonstrably planted, in fact, we must doubt the truth of the entire story.” There it is. https://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/?s=This+testimony%2C+besides+throwing+into+doubt+the+testimony+of+Don+Mason+

Pentagon debates expose emptiness of large-plane-impact scenario by Craig McKee in, Truth and Shadows Blog March 16, 2016 http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2016/03/16/pentagon-debates

Excerpt: “Those who are determined to push the impossible claim that a large plane really did hit the Pentagon on 9/11 – despite the absence of a plane at the “crash” site – go to incredible lengths to try and make their case. They speculate, hypothesize, assume, and concoct imaginative and “plausible” scenarios that they claim “fit the data” or are “consistent with an impact”… Two of those articles were critiques of presentations given by researchers David Chandler and Ken Jenkins at the 9/11 film festival held in Oakland, CA. in September (2015 and posted to YouTube as “Pentagon Plane Puzzle”). Both presentations were part of a continuing effort by a small team of researchers to get the 9/11 Truth Movement to abandon some of the most powerful evidence that exists that 9/11 was an inside job…”

“Festival organizer Ken Jenkins—who along with Chandler wants the rest of the Truth Movement to believe a large plane actually hit the Pentagon as the official story claims—tried in his brief talk to link his Team’s Pentagon theory with the widely supported position advanced by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth that the World Trade Center towers were brought down in controlled demolitions. If you liked controlled demolition, you’ll love a large plane hitting the Pentagon! It was six minutes of pure spin and cleverly worded manipulation.”

Going full debunker: Chandler devotes most of Pentagon talk to boosting 9/11 official story

Comment by Craig McKee at Truth and Shadows July 17, 2012 Blog, “David Ray Griffin, Barrie Zwicker Support CIT’s ‘Staged Evidence’ Scenario”: Here’s what Griffin wrote on page 265 of “Debunking 9/11 Debunking” about the witness accounts compiled by CIT: “This testimony, besides throwing into doubt the testimony of Don Mason and the other people who claimed to have seen the light poles clipped, suggests something even more important: that the five light poles were staged to provide evidence for the official story.

Excerpt: “A group of supposed truthers has done everything possible to discredit CIT, defending the official story to a bizarre degree. They mock and ridicule anyone who doesn’t agree with them, calling them “liars” and “no-planer idiots” and then they claim that it is CIT’s investigative methods that are the problem.

I have questioned the motives of some of these “researchers.” They claim they want to cut CIT out of the movement because their claim that a 757 did not hit the Pentagon will bring ridicule to the cause and undermine its chances of success. So they fuel internal dissension that will do exactly what they claim to be afraid of.

In his book Debunking 9/11 Debunking, Griffin questions the eyewitness account of Don Mason, who claims to have seen the light poles hit (p. 264).

“This claim, that the plane en route to the Pentagon hit five light poles at the Washington Boulevard overpass – three with one wing, two with the other – has been an important part of the evidence that a Boeing 757, or in any case an airplane with a wingspan of at least 100 feet (the distance between the light poles on the two sides of the road), really did strike the Pentagon. PM’s [Popular Mechanics] support of this claim includes photographs of the five poles, which were knocked down.

“Serious questions about the credibility of this claim have long been raised. But videotaped testimony has recently been presented that, if reliable, would make the claim even more dubious than it was before.”

Griffin refers to interviews in the CIT film The PentaCon that show that the flight path was to the north of the gas station, making it impossible for the plane to have hit the poles.”

The PentaCon – Smoking Gun Version (1:19:37) Published on Apr 23, 2011 at lyletrip youtube channel

Barrie Zwicker is quoted in this blog as well: The evidence now shows, well past reasonable doubt, what happened. It was detonation of explosives within the building, timed to coincide with a flyover by a large jet plane, thus producing the clever illusion that flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, heart of the official 9/11 Pentagon lie.

He adds: “To me, two most important questions now, almost nine years after the events, urgently call out for investigation. First, who are those behind the vicious attempts to discredit the work of the Citizen Investigation Team? Second, what are the motives of the would-be discreditors and those behind them? I say “attempts” because careful examination of the arguments of CIT’s tormentors show them to be tricky and unreliable – as flimsy as the official story they try to defend.”

Jenkins cut Pentagon section out of September 11: The New Pearl Harbor without permission.

By Craig McKee

In my last post, I deconstructed David Chandler’s very disturbing Pentagon presentation at last month’s 9/11 Truth Film Festival in Oakland, CA. But as troubling as his reinforcement of most of the official story was, it wasn’t the only talk at the festival given by a member of his “Team” of researchers.
