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!

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. 
Salute-to-Spring-2018_Oakland_Anti-War_Rally_Participants_thumbnail-screenshot
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.

Project Censored interviews William Pepper, King Family Attorney, on the evidence at the 50th Anniversary of the Murder of Martin Luther King

The Plot to Kill King” – Project Censored Radio Show on KPFA PACIFICA in Berkeley, CA 4-06-18. Mickey Huff and Ken Burroughs of San Francisco University interview William Pepper, author of three books about the Murder of Martin Luther King. https://kpfa.org/player/?audio=282877

plot to kill king
Book Cover: The Plot to Kill King published 2017 by Skyhorse Publishing
William Pepper explains that he met Dr King because King wanted to speak with him about his reporting from Vietnam, particularly due to his photos published in Ramparts Magazine in 1967 showing the effect of the war on the children of Vietnam. Pepper got to know the family as a result of his first book in 1995, Orders To Kill. The King family and William Pepper visited James Earl Ray in prison. They were convinced that he was not the killer. They came to believe that he had not acted out of racist hatred toward MLK, but rather as a patsy in a large conspiracy involving criminals in and out of government. Efforts to get a new trial and medical help for James Earl Ray failed, and he died in prison.

The King family decided to file a civil trial in Memphis in 1999. William Pepper was the lawyer for the King family in their civil trial victory at which a unanimous jury of 6 whites and 6 blacks convicted former Memphis cop Loyd Jowers and “unnamed government co-conspirators” for the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Pepper’s second book was released in 2003 on Verso Books. It tells about what came out in the trial and was put into the public historical record. The transcripts from the trial can be read at the King Center website.

My song highlights some of the most disturbing items that came out in the trial, and my video used the photos from that book with permission of William Pepper. The song bears the same title as the book, “An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King”. The recording with Eric Golub on violin from the 2016 “Truth Troubadour” CD was aired on this program from 17:34 to 22:20 on Project Censored – The Plot To Kill King 4-06-18.

William Pepper is the author of three books about the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr. The interview moves on to discuss what he discovered in his third and last book, which was published in 2017 by Skyhorse Publishing. The third book is titled The Plot to Kill King: The Truth Behind the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.”

William Pepper claims that an enormous amount of additional information has been gathered since the second book published 15 years earlier. Project Censored Guest Host, Ken Burroughs asks Dr. Pepper about the new revelations about how Dr King died that are in his last book. Dr. Pepper names the shooter as Memphis cop Frank Strausser. He names the doctor in the hospital who smothered Dr. King under a pillow as Dr. Breen Bland. He tells the sources for this information. He names other “co-conspirators” who were already named in his last MLK book.

William Pepper was the keynote speaker at the annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival on 9-11-17 in Oakland, CA, which is sponsored by the Northern CA 9/11 Truth Alliance. All the films and speakers were live-streamed and archived by No Lies Radio at their Vimeo channel.

Note from William Pepper to Vic Sadot for writing this song about his second of three books about the murder of Dr Rev Martin Luther King, Jr. The re-make video with Eric Golub in the studio soundtrack was done in 2013. The master-mix of the song was finally released on Dec 19, 2017 on the “Truth Troubadour” CD at CD Baby:
Thanks so much for the effort you and others are making in the common struggle to air the truth about how this Republic, and each one of us, lost Martin. Thank you for taking the time to put some important history into a ballad. This, of course, is the role of the Balladeer without whom much of history would be lost, especially in our time with the consolidation of control of the mainstream media. I am grateful.” Bill Pepper

WHO KILLED MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. AND WHY? By William Pepper, Published at Popular Resistance 4-02-18 by Kevin Zeese 

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…”

Jenkins misleads by linking Pentagon plane impact theory to AE911Truth October 19, 2015 By Craig McKee in his Truth & Shadows Blog http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2015/10/19/credibility-of-ae911truth-co-opted-to-push-pentagon-plane-impact

“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

http://truthandshadows.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/chandler-goes-debunker

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.”

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.

It was Gerald Herbert Holten who created the Peace Symbol using navy semaphore flag signals as the basis for the design. The Peace Symbol was first used on February 21, 1958 in support of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in a march of 10,000 people from London to Aldermaston. Gerald Holten had been a conscientious objector during World War II. He was a graduate of the Royal College of Art.

Poet Arnie Passman and the Social Justice Committee of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists invited poets, singer-songwriters, and comedians to celebrate the 59th Birthday of the Peace Symbol! The history of the birth of the “Band the Bomb” movement in the UK and the need for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to be pressed forward are discussed.
hiroshima-ground-zero_us-army_berkeley-celebrates-peace_vic-sadotThe Berkeley Celebration of the 59th Birthday of the Peace Symbol was on “Presidents’ Day”, Monday, Feb 20, 2017. Veteran BFUU Social Justice Committee activist Cynthia Jean Johnson welcomed the small audience who came to Fellowship Hall on that rainy day.

The obligations of signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and the need for all nuclear countries to sign and participate, are explained in this video.
mordechai-vanunu_berkeley-celebrates-peace-symbol_vic-sadotThe gathering was fortunate to have a formidable poet like Frances L. Hillyard. Frances contributed several thought and emotion provoking poems, including poems about The Statue of Liberty; the view of a woman suffering the violence and turmoil in the city of Jenin in Palestine; a revolutionary salute to Mumia Abu Jamal; and the charming and hopeful “Dove of Light”. A separate 10 minute video of her performance has been posted!

A wonderful, inspirational, community sing-along was led by Berkeley’s beloved “Save the Post Office” organizer, Hali Hammer. The event closed with Christine Driftwood‘s implanting of a vision of possible uses of the Peace Symbol in Berkeley!

chizu-hamada_no-nuclear-weapons_hiroshimas_berkeley-celebrates-peace_vic-sadotChizu Hamada is a long-time San Francisco Bay Area activist against nuclear weapons and power. She works with Steve Zeltzer of KPFA’s WorkWeek Radio and the Labor Video Project, and thousands of other concerned citizens of many countries in various organizations, but principally she works with No Nukes Action Committee. The group has protest rallies outside the Japanese Consulate in San Francisco at 3 pm on the 11th of every month since the nuclear catastrophe first happened on March 11, 2011. Since March 11, 2017 will be the 6th anniversary of the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history there should be a larger than usual turn-out. What’s more is that the emergency is an ongoing radioactive disaster that continues to contaminate land, air, and sea, and continues to threaten all living creatures that depend on these elements of nature for sustenance.

Note: Several photos in the video of the poem by Frances L. Hillyard about the town of Jenin in Palestine were used by permission of Ahmed Alomary who lives in Jenin, Palestine. During research Vic Sadot discovered Ahmed’s YouTube video, which lists a link to the Facebook Photography Page of Ahmed Alomaryjenin-palestine_farmes-bale-hay-in-fields_ahmed-alomary-screenshotAhmed responded affirmatively to a request for permission to take some screenshots from his video, saying that he would be pleased that people would be made more aware of what is really happening in Palestine. Here is the link to his vignette of images of the beautiful aspects of the city under pressure from the Apartheid supremacist regime following a plan for long-term expansion that involves the dispossession and subjugation of the Palestinians. jenin-palestine-city-lights_ahmed-alomary-screenshotJenin Palestine (2:39) Ahmed ALomary YouTube & Photos All Rights Reserved. photos from jenin palestine with background music naseer shamma palestinian heritage.

Ahmed Alomary manages to capture the beauty in the city and countryside around Jenin. But the Zionist expansion is constantly pressing into their territories with colonizers who are euphemistically called “settlers”. And the IDF is always nearby to enforce “The Law In These Parts” (An Israeli film that was screened at the annual Jewish Film Festival in Berkeley, California).
