Hosts Kevin Barrett and “Tony” Antonius J Hall were joined by author and news media analyst Barrie Zwicker for a rapid review of the past week’s news events. The new Vice Presidential candidate of the Green Party USA, human rights activist Ajamu Baraka, was the subject of a mass media attack on him as a “holocaust denier” by virtue of his having been on this very show, “False Flag Weekly News” on No Lies Radio.

Green Party Presidential nominee Jill Stein invited Ajamu Baraka to join her on the 2016 Green Party ticket as the VP candidate. The central claim or smear against Ajamu Baraka was to name him as a “holocaust denier” in a classic and unfounded “guilt-by-association” technique for having appeared on the show with a said-to-be “known holocaust denier”, host Kevin J Barrett, PhD. Every week on No Lies Radio news events are analyzed with pithy commentary and with screenshots and links given so that the viewer can look into the issues themselves. Barrie Zwicker is famous as the director of the documentary “The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw”, as the author of “Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11”, and as a well-known Canadian television personality for decades. Barrie Zwicker recently reviewed Kevin Barrett’s book on the alleged Orlando massacre event in a column at Craig McKee‘s excellent “Truth and Shadows” Blog.

The song for this blog features the video from Vic Sadot’s “Truth Troubadour” YouTube Channel called “Full Spectrum Dominance”. After a successful crowd-sourced fundraising effort at Indiegogo, Vic is now ready to release a new CD to be titled “Truth Troubadour” featuring a cover photo by Rob Sadot of Vic Sadot during a hiking trip in the East Bay hills. Here is a link to a free mp3 for “Full Spectrum Dominance” at SoundCloud by Broadside Balladeer that is a first rough mix, not the one that will be on the album.

The Debate in the Woods

“The Debate in the Woods” was between Jack Gescheidt of The Tree Spirit Project vs Bob Strayer of the Claremont Canyon Conservancy. The monitor was Bill Lazarus.

Debate-in-the-Woods-of-Claremont-Canyon_Jack-Gescheidt_Bob-Stray 012

East Bay Area Woods and Nature Preservation Activists gathered in Claremont Canyon Preserve on July 24, 2016 to hear Jack Gescheidt of The Tree Spirit Project (center) versus Bob Strayer of the Claremont Canyon Conservancy (right).

The debate was friendly and respectful. It covered numerous issues related to the plan created by UC Berkeley, City of Oakland, and the East Bay Regional Parks, and the Federal Emergency Management Authority (FEMA) to cut several hundred thousand trees, to spray herbicide to prevent re-growth, and to create grasslands instead of re-planting other trees. The Hills Conservation Network, a coalition of a number of civic groups, has filed a law suit to stop the plan. This debate was a reflection of two persons with different philosophies and understandings about the impact of the plan on the living creatures and plants, as well as the soil and the watershed of the San Francisco Bay Area.

The TreeSpirit Project is an environmental art project devoted to raising awareness of the crucial role trees and forests in our lives, both globally and also personally. The global and the personal are inextricably linked. TreeSpirit’s centerpiece is the world’s largest collection of photographs of naked, vulnerable humans communing with trees, created by Founder and photographer Jack Gescheidt with hundreds of volunteer participants.  All are tree and nature lovers who want to attract public and media attention to how much we need forests to mitigate climate change — and to touch our souls.

Hills Conservation Network

Stop the Deforestation of the Berkeley/Oakland Hills! UC and the City of Oakland plan to use federal disaster mitigation funds to clear-cut ALL of its tall trees in the hills. They are targeting eucalyptus, pines, and acacia for complete eradication, not because of a fire risk, but instead to clear the land for facilities expansion and to continue to allow UC to avoid spending its own money to maintain its wild land properties. They have dismissed proposed “species neutral” fire mitigation strategies that would be cheaper, would use far fewer herbicides, and would be far more effective in lessening fire risk because such strategies wouldn’t accomplish this hidden agenda. inquiries@hillsconservationnetwork.org

The Hills Conservation Network has filed a lawsuit to stop the clear-cutting of trees under the notion that they are an “invasive species” and need to be eliminated by a chemical war on them. Dan Grassetti is the founder of the Hills Conservation Network.

Singer-Songwriter Berkeley Activist Vic Sadot Guest Co-Hosts with Professor Kevin J. Barrett, author of “We Are Not Charlie Hebdo”, “Another French False Flag”, and the forthcoming “Orlando False Flag: A Clash of Histories”

Vic Sadot Guest Co-Hosts with Kevin J. Barrett. Vic was filling in for Professor Antonius “Tony” J Hall, Editor-in-Chief of the American Herald Tribune, and author of “Earth Into Property”; and Professor James H. Fetzer, Emeritus U-MN in Philosophy, both away on sabbatical studies and projects. Kevin Barrett announced the forthcoming release of a new book to be titled “Orlando False Flag”, and he asked the audience to let him know which of the two covers shown above they prefered. Vic Sadot picked the one on the left by David Dees, whose controversial art Vic has used in many of his music videos. Dees has a new full color book out titled “The Political Art of David Dees”.

More than 33 stories were covered with short pithy commentary. The links to those stories are listed in the description box for this show at No Lies Radio: Istanbul Turkey Terror Attack at Ataturk Airport had many advance warnings fro Turkish intelligence

The co-hosts discussed the necessity of applying the same basic questions to the Orlando Pulse Night Club as required for such crimes  as well as a keen study of anomalies, impossibilities, and interviews of victims. One of the things that happens regularly on False Flag Weekly News is comparison with facts discovered from researching past suspect events. It was noted that many Sandy Hook School alleged victim family members from Newtown, Connecticut went on TV and other media for interviews without showing much emotion. Just as the corporate media and investigators skipped much of the required research, the family members were disturbingly skipping the normal grieving process, and rushing to put up fundraising sites. Was this a way to launder money to them? Also, they pitched a political message attacking the Second Amendment Rights to disarm US citizens who played no role in the alleged attacks. This is happening in a post 9/11 era where the state security apparatus is always given more money and power when they fail, and as the state pushes to militarize local police as part of the “Homeland Security” program. Oddly, a contingent of Sandy Hook families had VIP seats at the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15, 2013. And the event turned into a Martial Law Drill with 10,000 troops entering people’s homes to search for one 19 year old who was accused of the crime by Jeff Bauman and a guy named Danny. See Russ Baker at Who, What, Why for excellent research on these matters. See Russ Baker’s Don’t Rush to Judgement in Orlando Shooting (22:06) Published on Jun 17, 2016 at WhoWhatWhy Org YouTube. The Fourth Amendment rights enumerated in the US Constitution for American citizens to be secure in their houses and property were violated for thousands of Boston citizens.

One of several news stories about the Orlando event was titled “Boston Crisis Actors Visit Orlando Crisis Actors in the Hospital”. It is legitimate to ask why the alleged Boston “victims” would visit the alleged Orlando alleged “victims” in a manner to draw massive publicity to drive the narrative that the US is under “terrorist” attacks in a more frequent accelerated pace under Obama compared to all Presidents before him. Why are there always drills that seem to go live? You do not want to be near a drill at a mass gathering when simple security is all that is needed. In numerous cases, the alleged “victims” not only skip the grieving process, but they also skip the physical healing process in ways that only be called “miraculous”.

Peekay Boston is an Australian comedic commentator who created an 11:30 video titled “Surely This Is Normal… Or Is It??” at Peekay Boston YouTube Channel. (11:30) Peekay Boston says, “Jeff Bauman a Great American Hero… How can Anyone say that what we see in the Iconic Boston photo of him in a wheelchair is Not Normal?” Bauman not only lost two legs. He also got “hero” status when he identified the two Tsarnaev brothers to the FBI as the “terrorist” bombers! The other “hero” was the Cowboy Hat wearing Carlos Arredondo, who rescued Bauman by breaking all standard medical protocols by putting Bauman in a wheel-chair instead of flat out on a stretcher with legs raised and tourniqueted to reduce blood loss. Why did the many trained doctors and nurses who participate in the annual Boston Marathon “Mass Casualty Drill” not rescue Bauman properly if it was indeed real and not the annual drill done with “unwitting participants” gone live? How does breaking the protocols make you a hero instead of the subject of a lawsuit? Why did the huge number of medical professionals and ambulances available and participating in the annual drill not rescue Bauman? Is that normal? The fact that Jeff Bauman was released from the hospital just 11 days after allegedly losing two legs, and the fact that he was fully recovered 19 days later, smiling and waving the flag at the Boston Bruins hocky game is, well, “NORMAL” in post-9/11 America! In an interview Bauman even explained his miraculous and rapid recovery to his being part of the PR campaign called “Boston Strong”. He answered that his doctors said he was a ‘wolverine’.” Yet Dr. Stan Monteith, a doctor  who has performed amputations and who can also think critically, is quoted in this video as saying none of this is “normal”. Dr. Monteith concludes, “I think that this young man was a ‘crisis actor’.” The alleged mother at the Olando alleged shooting massacre named Christine did a TV spot the night of the shootings and was talking about doing something about the assault weapons instead of being at the hospital or the morgue to find out the fate of her alleged son. A couple days later she is beaming a smile and holding hands with Anderson Cooper in the way we witnessed during the Christmas TV scenes from Sandy Hook and from happily “grieving ” parents and children at other recent events. It’s tabloid soap opera “news”. Meanwhile TPP is secretly being formulated, drones are wiping out children in foreign villages, elections are being “fixed”, proxy armies hooked on amphatamines and wahhabist religion are destroying Israel’s neighbors, and NATO is amassing troops and missiles all around Russia.

Judge Napalotano’s revelation that nobody died until the Swat Team went into the Pulse Night Club after several hours waiting outside contradicts the story told by the witnesses who went on TV right away to tell the story of the scene of carnage they saw. Oddly they showed no signs of trauma or PTSD for having gone through an event they described as “horrific”.

The New York Times used the “false flag” terminology last week, which is rare. But it mocks critical thinkers as “conspiracy theorists” for asking the standard questions that come quite naturally before you even come up with any theory at all. All journalists, detectives, and citizens must always ask of every violent criminal event: who? what why? how? means? motive? opportunity? who benefits? how? how much? who suffers? how? how much? But the goal of psychological operations is to get you to react emotionally and to implant a story before you do the rational processing. It’s called “trauma-based conditioning”… and the manipulation of that cognitive imprinting.

In spite of some flippant comments on Private Manning’s openly stated gender choice, and some uncomfortable Islamic positioning by Kevin Barrett, Vic Sadot stood up for war crimes whistle-blower Private Chelsea Manning by explaining that he respected her for her stand against war crimes, and that he felt strongly enough about it that he had changed the gender of his support song for Manning out of respect for her telling the truth about the war crimes of the Corporate Empire. See Courage To Resist – Free Chelsea Manning at Truth Troubadour YouTube. She is serving a prison sentence of 35 years and the Organization called “Courage To Resist” is working on a legal appeal and on galvanizing popular support for Manning. Vic read a quote from Chelsea Manning’s Warning Statement on the Orlando Pulse Night Club media event that was published in The Guardian (UK) June 13, 2016: “An attack like this is carefully planned and executed to maximize attention by inflaming the passions of a helpless public. Because of this, the response can be more dangerous than the attack. The refrains of “safety and security” have, for many years, been used as a tool by the powerful to justify curtailing civil liberties and emboldening backlash against immigrants, Muslim people and others”.

As part of a story on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France being closed, Vic took the opportunity to mention the SF Solidarity with French Workers action at the SF French Consulate; The use of “terrorism” by President Francois Hollande and Prime Minister Manuel Valls to issue sweeping executive decrees to wipe out workers’ hard won rights and benefits when the austerity measures cannot be passed in the French National Assembly…

Senator John McCain’s 2016 Republican Party primary opponent, former state Senator Dr. Kelli Ward, bluntly accused McCain, President Barrack Obama, and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of creating ISIS, and she blamed McCain for treason by declaring that his support for the Islamic State was getting Americans killed: “Arizona needs a Senator who represents Arizona, not ISIS!” Similarly a New York Times reporter named Mark Mazetti wrote that black market CIA arms for the US-Israel-Saudi-NATO mercenary proxy army in Syria was getting Americans killed.

Kevin Barrett cited an Los Angeles Times article and interpreted that the Settlement announced by Presidents Erdogan of Turkey and Netanyahu of Israel betrays Mavi Marmara Gaza Freedom Flotilla crew members killed in International waters by Israeli commandos. The co-hosts said they were eager to hear what Ken O’Keefe had to say since he was sailing on that ship in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla attempt to break the blockade of the people being collectively punished in the Gaza strip of Occupied Palestine.

JVP-Rebecca-Vilkomerson-Boycott-Israel_FFWN-NLR_7-01-16-screenshot-vic-sadot

Discussion of Washington Post article on Jewish Voice for Peace leader Rebecca Vilkomerson’s call to boycott Israel. Kevin and Vic discussed some of the Anti-Apartheid Occupation groups’ infighting over Gilad Atzmon, Ken O’Keefe, Alison Weir, and others for taking a more strident and independent view than the Jewish-led pro BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) group regarding the seemingly endless occupation of Palestine due to US support. Vic mentioned Alison Weir’s new book “Against Our Better Judgment”;. She is the founder of an organization called “If Americans Knew”. Alison Weir recently had some critical exchanges with JVP. Vic commended JVP and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters for their new film “The Occupation of the American Mind” (Vic wrote 2 different positive but critical reviews in Berkeley Calling & Truth Troubadour Blogs). Click on the photo of Ken O’Keefe to hear his testimony after being beaten by Israeli commandos for disarming two of them who boarded and murdered Turkish citizens on the Mavri Marmara ship partipating in the Free Gaza Flotilla to end the blockade of Gaza.

Israeli Intelligence Chief makes public statement that the defeat of ISIS in Syria with Russian help would not be good for Israel; Brexit and what it means to have the British people to vote to leave the super-imposed unaccountable bureaucracy headquartered in Brussels, Belgium known as the EU (European Union).

Discussion moved to the 2016 Election and corporate media attention focused on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. One story by J C Collins in Philosophy of Metrics Blog was about how Rothschild money had saved Trump from bankruptcy during his foray into crime-related gambling casinos, thus making him beholden for his subsequent “success” story. A recent Trump speech was cited for its severe critique of Clinton that is likely to be popularly received. A 2013 Trump Endorsement of Zionist Likud Party President Netanyahu is little known because it was only run in Israel. Watch the 34 second clip on YouTube!

The American Jewish paper Forward ran an article titled “Elizabeth Warren Is the Surprising Israel Hawk on Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential Shortlist”. The author mocked Bernie Sanders supporters saying: “Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts senator and liberal champion. Warren would be the natural pick to win over supporters of another progressive Democratic icon – Vermont senator Bernie Sanders. The Bernie or Bust crowd, who are still uncomfortable with Clinton, may find Warren’s positions on social and economic issues just as exciting as Sanders’s. But on Israel they disagree. Sanders made a point of challenging the party line by criticizing Israeli policies and demanding a Democratic platform that recognizes Palestinian rights; Warren chose to challenge progressives with a strong pro-Israel stance, much closer to that of the Democratic establishment…”. The pro-war and pro Israel positions of all major party Presidential candidates may not be well-known, particularly in the case of allegedly “progressive” Democrats like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Sanders played to his base by not attending the AIPAC convention, and this drew criticism from Warren.

Third Parties making progress with so much loss of credibility in the two monopoly parties that have a private corporation set up to run Presidential debates with rules that exclude candidates from other major American political parties. Kevin pointed to an article in the Indianapolis Star about Libertarian Presidential candidate and former Governor Gary Johnson polling higher than in past elections.The article said Johnson got an astounding 10% in a recent national poll, and reported: “He called for the legalization of marijuana, term limits for politicians, free markets, fewer regulations on small businesses, a less interventionist military philosophy, reform of Social Security that includes means testing and a raised retirement age, and a replacement of the current tax structure with a flat consumption tax. “If you do away with the corporate tax,” he said, “you will issue pink slips to 80 percent of the lobbyists in Washington.”

Jill-Stein_Vic-Sadot_Berkeley-Post-Office_6-03-16_Linday-Yurick

Vic Sadot, a Green Party member since 2007, pointed out that Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein and VP candidate Honkala were arrested in 2012 when they demanded the right to participate in the 2012 US Presidential Debate at Hoftra University on Long Island, New York. Not only were they arrested, but they were handcuffed to metal chairs for 8 grueling hours. Vic challenged Democratic party members who claim that the Green Party acts as a “spoiler” of their corporate pro-war candidates. He challenged Democrats to help stop this kind of treatment of other popular American Presidential candidates, saying: “All you Democrats gotta deal with that! When you say “Oh you guys are spoilers… No! You guys are spoiling democracy”. Vic Sadot met Jill Stein in person at the Berkeley Post Office on June 3, 2016, and he encouraged her to make “Torture Accountability” a major 2016 election issue and to join the BORDC (Bill of Rights Defense Committee) campaign to demand the release of all 6,500 pages of the 2014 Senate Torture Report. Only a 500 page summary has been released to the public, and it effectively repudiates the 2004 9/11 Commission Report written by Philip Zelikow. Washington’s Blog brilliantly and logically explains why this should be important to everyone, especially the genuine 9/11 Truth & Justice Movement.  Based on Washington’s Blog, Vic explained  that the 500 page summary of the Senate Report on US Torture absolves some key people, such as Abu Zubaydah, who confessed under tortue to all manner of things he did not do, and such “testimony” was made central to the “official conspiracy theory” story about 19 Arabs led by a former CIA asset named Osama bin Laden. And that mythology was used to make foreign and domestic policy for the last 15 years! The US has built magnificent museums to sanctify that story!

Chilean-Officer_Convicted-for-Murder-of-Victor-Jara_FFWN-NoLiesRadio_7-01-16-screenshot

In the “Good News” department, the FFWN Co-Hosts noted that a Former Chilean Military Officer during Pinochet Coup Was Found Guilty in Florida for the Murder of legendary Chilean folk singer Victor Jara. The civil law suit was won by California-based Center for Justice & Accountability.

Other stories discussed were the following: A CBS News report on a 91 year old Pennsylvania man who lectured school groups about his experience at the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp. He was exposed to be a Holocaust Hoaxer and apologized for having only been a tourist there after WWII. A Recreational Cannibis Legalization Referendum got sufficient signatures to be on California Nov 2016 election ballot according to the San Francisco Gate. The same measure failed in 2010. Medicinal marijuana is already legalized and providing taxes to local communities. Near the end of the 59 minute show Vic plugged some of his most recent blogs at Berkeley Calling Blog: USS Liberty Vet Don Pageler spoke in Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA on June 25, 2016 about the attack on the USS Liberty by Israel on June 8, 1967; SF Solidarity with French Workers 6-14-16;  A Review of the Documentary Film & the BDS Movement titled “The Occupation of the American Mind”; and Vic Sadot Launches IndieGoGo CD Fundraiser for a CD to be titled “Truth Troubadour” 6-24-16.

Vic showed up at at the San Francisco Federal Reserve Building on the 100th Anniversary of the Fed on 12/23/13 for the “End the Fed Rally”, and his performance was captured by Fifth Mike BridgeSpecial “ILLUMINATE THE FED” version of Bob Dylan’s “MASTERS OF WAR” (3:34). Singing with the No Nukes Action Committee at their events on the 11th of every month at the SF Japanese Consulate is reflected in photos used in the video “No Nuke Blues Fukushima Update”, and Labor Video YouTube Channel which captured the most recent speak-out and sing-out at the French Consulate in San Francisco. Local activists expressed their solidarity on June 14, 2016. See San Francisco Solidarity with the French General Strike.

Kevin is an amazingly prolific author, and also blogs and hosts another solo radio show as “Truth Jihad” (Truth Struggle). The latter part of the False Flag Weekly News show covers the 2016 election with James Fetzer, PhD Philosophy Emeritus U-MN, reporting and analyzing the latest developments of the last week. Jim also hosts “The Real Deal” Radio Show on the Media Broadcasting Center Official Channel. He blogs at the James Fetzer Blog. Jim is also an amazingly prolific author.

Vic Sadot, singer-songwriter based in Berkeley, CA, has a BA in Political Science from the U of DE. On 9/11/11 Vic Sadot released a 16 song CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which remains available at CD Baby. Vic has made music videos for most of these songs at his “Truth Troubadour” YouTube Channel. Vic blogs at Truth Troubadour, Berkeley Calling, and Broadside Balladeer. Truth Troubadour Blog is about 9/11 and deep politics; Berkeley Calling Blog is about politics and culture in the SF Bay Area with the “Living tradition of Free Speech as the theme”; and Broadside Balladeer Blog covers political songs by Vic and others, Phil Ochs, and topical folk songs. Fpr example, see Broadside Balladeer Blog: Phil Ochs Legacy Lives On In The House of Woody. Many of Vic’s most recent songs are free mp3 downloads at SoundCloud by Broadside Balladeer.

Professor Anthony “Tony” Hall is currently the Editor-in-Chief of the American Herald Tribune. His most recent article there is “Is the 9/11 scam coming undone?”.

Vic Sadot first met Tony Hall at the 10th Anniversary 9/11 Truth March from the Gandi Statue to the Hebst Theater for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance 10th Anniversary Film Festival. Vic and Tony sang together on the way there. Unfortunately, Vic was expelled from the NCA911TA for blowing the whistle on censorship of the Pentagon section of a director’s film without his being consulted. Vic did not go public with this matter until after he was expelled on June 4, 2014. See Vic Sadot Expelled from Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance in Quickie Vote on 6-04-15 Truth Troubadour Blog

Vic’s opposition to the strategy of prioritizing the group’s energy and focus on the release of 28 pages from the 2002 Congressional 9/11 Report, and his advocacy of instead stressing the release of the 6,500 pages of the 2014 Senate Report on US Torture as suggested in Washington’s Blog was not well-received. Neither was Vic’s call to expand the film festival to include more recent false flag investigations done since the 9/11 one was prosecuted and only encouraged the state terrorists to do more of them. See An Alternative 9-11 Truth and False Flags Film Festival – Truth Troubadour Blog 2-21-16 by N CA 9/11 “Truth” Alliance Expelled Whistleblower Vic Sadot to watch the mostly short films that Vic submitted for consideration to the 2015 9/11 Truth Festival.

The Occupation of the American Mind

This Berkeley Calling Blog is just a sampler of the main journal on this topic, which is Truth Troubadour Blog Movie Review 6-22-16: The Occupation of the American Mind Produced by Sut Jhally & Narrated by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd. However the Berkeley Calling movie review has a focus on the emerging Berkeley Anti-Free Speech Movement that attempts to stop speakers and media from being heard and seen.

The-Occupation-of-the-American-Mind_film-cover_480x360

“The Occupation of the American Mind” (Running time: 85 mins) was screened at the Berkeley Public Library on June 6, 2016 for free. The event was co-sponsored by NorCal Friends of Sabeel and Jewish Voice for Peace Bay Area. I think both groups have done outstanding work and I first met some of these folks when I served for a couple years as the Chair of the Social Justice Committee of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists, which has shared its Historic Fellowship Hall with many voices. Tolerance is practiced and there is a code of preferring to “agree to disagree” rather than to silence or suppress “Free Speech”. Within this blog I’m going to attempt to practice those principles by speaking my mind and by linking to all parties mentioned. Without getting into it too much in this blog, I must express my concern for that heritage of intellectual civility and political integrity that is being recklessly destroyed in the wake of Ken O’Keefe‘s speech about “Jewish Power” and his advocacy for Banning the dangerous and humiliating post-9/11 TSA Body Scanners on March 20, 2016. This is deeply concerning. There is a coordinated effort to suppress the speeches of Ken O’Keefe, including the one in Berkeley, which clearly had a disclaimer that his views did not necessarily reflect the views of the BFUU or its members. His “free speech” is being subjected to a game of whack-o-mole that makes the questions he raised all the more important to the public. So pardon me if some Berkeley Anti-Free Speech Movement activists are temporarily successful in removing links so that you cannot hear the pro-Palestinian pro-Semitic side. This is the sign of a lack of confidence in one’s position. It is an Un-American abuse of power and it stands starkly in conflict with the spirit and letter of the First Amendment.

Ken O’Keefe‘s organization is called World Citizen Solutions, an effort to remove a citizen’s obligation to support wars. Yet, such an anti-war pro-Semitic perspective will make you a terrorism suspect and they will violate your 4th Amendment Rights as well as your precious health with these absurd security measures and secret lists meant to chill dissent in the good ol’ USA! Words were tossed about as if they were more important than shattered lives! Strategic use of “Anti-Semitism” in a way that excludes the inhumane treatment of the other Semitic peoples in the Middle East and North Africa reached clarity. Why is killing Palestinians not a most grievous form of “Anti-Semitism”? “Hate Speech” is too often now code for the “Anti-Free Speech Movement”. We don’t want that in Berkeley! And we don’t go along with the UC Regents criminalizing the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement and suppressing anyone’s “Free Speech” in the guise of repressing “Anti-Semitism”, “Jew Hatred”, or “Hate Speech”. The principles we seek to uphold are universal and apply to everyone’s conduct. In the case of the Unitarian Universalists there are Seven Basic UU Principles. There’s a world of difference between actual genocidal hatred of someone just for who they happen to be by chance, and using these words to “divide and rule” and to suppress those who question your version of history. The most virulent form of this authoritarian mentality is the erudite anti-intellectual form attempting to intimadate our scholars in our universities. And we are highly susceptible to manipulation if we do not question the basics of each event that has happened since 9/11 always accompanied by the “psychic driving” techniques of the Corp-Gov Media.

This documentary, The Occupation of the American Mind, is a deeply needed and well-made introduction to the history and tragedy of the criminal Apartheid Occupation of Palestine by Zionists who have created “The Jewish State”. It should be shared widely for it signals a growth in consciousness and conscience among the global masses, particularly among Jewish and Arab communities who know that the true history of their relations was not one of hostility. These developments are all a very good thing!  The Occupation of the American Mind is the story of an extremely biased media, biased against the other Semitic Peoples. This is also a story of secret global political machinations that has led to the support of a supremacist ideology and a bellicose political entity by countries who would not tolerate such a thing in their home countries.  As significant as this new documentary will soon be recognized to be, it must be said that it still has serious flaws of omission.

However, you are certainly able to get the omitted history from numerous sources, such as Alison Weir‘s new book, “Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the U.S. Was Used To Create Israel”. Alison Weir’s organization is If Americans Knew. It can fairly be said that you can only accomplish so much in a short documentary, and that should be conceded in this case where the subject is opened so well to the uninitiated. Likewise Alison Weir‘s book is also only an introduction to a complex historical problem, and she acknowledges that. In fact, her book is only 94 pages, and the rest, the “end notes” comprising of 135 pages, substantiate what she says and they give you credible avenues to pursue deeper into a subject which impacts much more tellingly on your life and your world than you may realize. Having Roger Waters bravely serve as the narrator is helping this happen.” Hit the book image below to find out more about “Against Our Better Judgment” by Alison Weir.

March 30, 2014 Post Event Update Notice: “NOW ARCHIVED”!

The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance (NCA911Truth) Live-Stream event from Berkeley’s Historic Fellowship Hall on MARCH 27, 2014 is now archived on No Lies Radio! 

The idea of the live-stream event was to promote the screening of the film, “9/11 in the Academic Community”, at campuses and communities world-wide in 2014. See the link to the film if you wish to organize an event in your area. The featured film is not in the archive since it was a one-time publicity agreement with the film maker, Adnan Zuberi. The short film titled “The San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11” was shown, and the 10th Anniversary of that event organized by NCA911Truth was celebrated. Truth Troubadour Vic Sadot sang “Cheney’s in the Bunker” and “Trouble in the Rubble”, and the first of those two songs is in this archived segment. The sponsors were Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Project Censored, the BFUU Social Justice Committee, and No Lies Radio.

Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth posted a review that said: “9/11 In The ACADEMIC COMMUNITY, a winner at the University of Toronto Film Festival, is a unique film that documents academia’s treatment of critical perspectives on 9/11. It explores the taboo that has been effective in shielding the American government’s narrative of the events of 9/11 from scholarly examination. Through a powerful reflection on intellectual courage and the purpose of academia, the film aims at changing intellectual discourse on 9/11 and the War on Terror… As well as probing the repercussions several scholars have endured due to their individual investigations into 9/11, this documentary provides an analysis of impairments in professional inquiry, ranging from the failure to critically reflect on terms that function as “thought-stoppers” (such as “conspiracy theory”) to the structural approach that restricts inquiry to the broad implications of 9/11 while shutting out enquiry into the events of the day itself.” http://www.ae911truth.org/en/news-section/57-news-releases-by-others/795-new-film-takes-on-911-in-the-academic-community.html
