Celebrating Phil Ochs Blog 8-08-17: New Phil Ochs Interview From 1973 Released To Celebrate His 75th Birthday. Founded by Shannon Hammock with a companion page at Facebook. 

SUMMARY OF CONTENT: This interview took place in Washington, DC on WGTB Radio with Rich Lang, Host of Interface, a WGTB Public Affairs Program; Vic Sadot, Interviewer; Sound Engineer: Skip Pizzi. (Total time interview: 28 min, 54 sec)
Rich Lang announces “Interface” show and introduces Phil Ochs and Vic Sadot. Vic explains that Phil is in DC for a week long engagement at The Cellar Door. He then asks Phil about Watergate and what the Senate and the press are doing. Phil talks about “the Watergate conspiracy”, the possibility of impeachment of President Richard Nixon; Rich asks Phil what about Vice President Spiro Agnew; Nixon in the polls, the significance of Attorney General John Mitchell admitting to breaking the law. Phil expresses surprise that Judge Sirica pursued the Watergate case thus far, talks of the lack of character of Eliot Richardson, quotes John Lennon’s song, Working Class Hero, refers to “crooks” and “creeps” (Committee to Re-Elect the President), mentions FBI Director L. Patrick Gray admitting to having destroyed evidence, refers to the break-in to the office of Pentagon whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg. Phil talks about his appearance on a TV show called “Panorama” the day before and what members of the international press, who were also on that show, were saying about the “Nixon scandal”. Phil comments on the superior nobility and utility of a parliamentary vote of no confidence compared to the impeachment process offered in the US Constitution.

Phil Ochs sings Here’s to the State of Richard Nixon, an update of a song he had previously written and released as Here’s to the State of Mississippi. Only Lyrics in white text on black background during the song segment.

Vic Sadot asks Phil Ochs about his travels in recent years. Phil covers the globe with his commentary on Vietnam and Cambodia, and his report on his most recent travels to Chile, Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Bolivia, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Bali, Jakarta, Singapore, Thailand, the Phillipines, “and Philadelphia”. Phil describes the struggle going on in Chile. Salvador Allende, a socialist who nationalized the copper mines, a great national asset of Chile, that had come to be owned by ITT Anaconda. This interview is in May 1973, 4 months before the coup by General Pinochet, when ITT and CIA activities against the Chilean government are being discussed. The coup came on September 11, 1973. Phil cites the assassination of the head of the Chilean Armed Forces (General René Schneider) as a “false flag” operation to make it seem like the newly elected socialist government was attacking the Chilean military. Phil talks about the movie “State of Siege” and the nature of the movement in South America. He describes the tactics of the Tupamaros in Uruguay, and tells the story of being at a university in Uruguay when it was surrounded by the army and shots were exchanged. Phil tells about being tracked and interfered with by Interpol and being taken to a prison. We discuss the role of universities in South America. He says that folk singers make the juke box but it is still mostly romantic subjects rather than political. Phil talks about the CIA financing of a spiritual movement in Chile to drain youth from the revolutionary political movement in Chile. (There may have been more in this interview, but it appears that WGTB’s reel to reel tape ran out here.)

Ukraine: Bloody Destabilization and Privatization Coup of 2014 Orchestrated by the NWO Corporate Captured States

Freedom” for the Ukraine! What does that mean? What is really happening? Here is a collection of news videos that suggest that there has been a bloody destabilization and privatization coup that was orchestrated by the NWO “Corporate Captured States” (CCS) using Neo-Nazis, snipers, media disinfo, a sexy chick viral video, and waves of money from NGO’s (Non-Government Organizations).

The US has Installed a Neo Nazi Government in the Ukraine (Les États-Unis a installé un gouvernement Nazi de Neo en Ukraine) 3-02-14 Center for Research on Globalization, Canada by Michel Chossudovsky.

Closer to home at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute in California, Larry Diamond has produced a new book and a new film on “democracy”. He has something to do with channeling US tax dollars through the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). But who gets that money? And why is it OK for the USA (as represented by corporate representatives) to intervene in other people’s countries with NGO funneled money. Is it destabilization and privatization work?

 Watch The Truth About The Ukraine Crisis” (12:16) Prison Planet’s Paul Joseph Watson reports that Larry Diamond of Stanford University and of the US “National Endowment for Democracy” (NED) funded a propaganda video called “From A Whisper To A Roar”. Note well that Paul Joseph Watson is an Islamophobe associated with fake “truther” Alex Jones of Prison Planet and Disinfo Wars. However, I found no other report on this film and the clip of the Ukrainian Girl from the propaganda movie mentioned. So I’m using it for that reason. I am not endorsing these guys. In this case, their facts stand up under scrutiny with other substantiation provided as well.

The section of the movie on the Ukraine celebrates the right wing NED funded parties in the Ukraine and their leader, Viktor Andriyovych Yushchenko, who lost the latest election to Viktor Yanukovych in2010. Recently, Yanukovych was overthrown in Kiev under violent methods of intervention by operatives associated with the US funded NGO’s (non-governmental organizations), some of whom are Neo Nazi. This film praises right wing pro-privatization political operative Viktor Yushcheko. A 2:04 minute segment titled “I Am A Ukrainian” was promoted to go viral on YouTube. 

An attractive blue eyed lady supports the “Right Sector” Nazis and “freedom” advocates on the barricades. How romantic, sweet, and fake! NED and other NGO’s funded the wave of “color” revolutions of which Ukraine’s brand was “orange”. Now the first step of the new Un-Elected government has been to offer to sell the state owned energy company to private corporations “in transparent auctions”. They will also open up negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to secure an indebted Ukraine within the Euro NATO sphere of domination. The attempt to remove Russia from the Crimea is a dangerous attempt to further the encirclement of Russia by NATO. 

Ukraine: Secretive Neo-Nazi Military Organization Involved in Euromaidan Snyper Shootings” – By F. William Engdahl in 21st Century Wire & Global Research, March 03, 2014 – “A secretive neo-nazi military organization reported linked to NATO played a decisive role in targeted sniper attacks and violence that led to the collapse of the elected government. But the West is not finished with destroying Ukraine. Now comes the IMF (International Monetary Fund – NWO Corporate Empire Bank) with severe conditionalities as prerequisite to any Western financial help…According to veteran US intelligence sources, the snipers came from an ultra-right-wing military organization known as Ukrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian People’s Self-Defense (UNA-UNSO). 

Victoria Nuland’s Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to “Subvert Ukraine”. Who is Victoria Nuland and why does this Dec 13, 2013 “U.S.-Ukraine Foundation” Conference in DC have oil logos so prominantly displayed? Victoria Nuland is the wife of Robert Kagan, founder of Project for A New American Century, and considered a star-leader of the younger generation of “Neo-Cons” now embraced and employed in the Democratic administration of President Barack Obama. After serving as Hillary Clinton’s spokesperson, she is now the U.S. Undersecretary of State for Europe and Eurasia.” How odd to hear a US official talk about her visit to the EuroMaidan protests as people being attacked for singing hymns when the reality is well documented in videos that Neo Nazis nationalists and “militants trained in the Baltics” used a molotov cocktail to create a napalm substance to throw at police officers. A phone call between her and Geoffrey Pyatt was intercepted in which she says “F the EU”. I would interpret that to mean that she understands that they want to participate in the Privatization Plunder of the Ukraine. But that they were not then willing to engage in nuclear brinkmanship with Russia or to support the US attempt to use its Neo Nazi banksters to try to remove the Russian fleet from the Crimea. Nuland said F the EU because they tried to make a deal with the elected government without US participation after it balked at joining the European Union and NATO (spoken by her in code as Ukraine’s “European future”) which would bring that outdated “defensive” organization to the door of Russia. NATO was originally set up to defend Western Europe from a perceived Soviet threat. It was deliberately transformed into an aggressive military tool to bomb far-flung places, such as Afghanistan, Libya, and Yugoslavia.

 

“INSANE Footage Of Ukraine Riots at Think Outside the Box Channel – Ultra “Right Sector” Nazi-style nationalists financed by US NATO use tactics learned in training camps in the Balkan states. The pay is said to be $25 per day. State Department Under-Secretary Victoria Nuland and the wife of Robert Kagan, founder of Project for A New American Century, said that the US has spent $5 billion so far to subvert the Ukraine. Plenty of new gear and weaponry has come into the violent conflict. Where is that kind of money and gear coming from? A home-made napalm is used on police who seem to be under orders to not shoot back, at least in this scene. You can see the fires break out on their uniforms.

Sharing a post by Haitian Blogger Chantal Laurent, “He’d better move faster on the privatization track, else his handlers will have to start mobilizing “civil society” to push him out, at which point he will have lost the afterglow of a Molotov cocktails democracy and become just another failed leader who needs to go.” Ukraine’s New Government mulling privatization of Energy Sector 3-3-14 – Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said, “I’ll tell you about the idea of privatization of the energy sector at transparent auctions…”

Why would Zionist Jews work with Ukrainian Fascists? Is there any history of anything like that? Unfortunately, this author makes that case.

The Zionist-Nazi Collaboration by William James Martin / July 8th, 2012 Dissident Voice Excerpt: The understanding of Herzl, as well as the Zionists, about the inevitability of anti-Semitism was possibly self-fulfilling, for rather than opposing anti-Semitism in the first half of the 20th century, the Zionists found common cause with Hitler, Eichmann, and the Nazis and used anti-Semitism and Nazism as a means of achieving their end which was the establishment of a Jewish state. The two reactionary movements shared the view that German Jews were living in that country as a ‘foreign race’ and that the racial divide was essential to maintain. The Zionists’ use of Nazism involved, among other things, the blocking of avenues of escape to other countries of Europe’s Jews and diverting them to Palestine, even as the death trains began to roll in Europe. The rise of Nazism and Hitler to power was never, or almost never, opposed by the Zionists prior to the establishment of Israel. 

Ukraine: Israeli Special Forces Unit under Neo-Nazi Command Involved in Maidan Riots 

Leaked Telephone Conversation: Ukraine Sniper Killings of “Opposition Protesters” Ordered by “Opposition Leaders”, Blamed on Yanukovych. The leaders of EuroMaidan ordered the shooting of their own supporters and police to inflame the situation. Based on the release of a controversial leaked telephone conversation, we are now in a position to confirm that the Kiev Maidan Independence Square February 20 sniper shootings directed against innocent civilians were ordered by opposition leaders integrated by Neo-Nazi elements. Acknowledged in a leaked telephone conversation between EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and the Estonian foreign minister Urmas Paet, the Maidan opposition rather than president Yanukovych was behind the sniper killings on February 20. These shootings were directed against both opposition protesters and police. Urmas Paet: “There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,”Catherine Ashton: “I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,”  According to RT:  The telephone call “took place after Estonia’s Foreign Minister Urmas Paet visited Kiev on February 25 at the peak of clashes between the pro-EU protesters and security forces in the Ukrainian capital. Paet also recalled his conversation with a doctor who treated those shot by snipers in Kiev. She said that both protesters and police were shot at by the same people.”Urmas Paet “And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,” the Estonian FM stressed. Catherine Ashton; “Well, yeah…that’s, that’s terrible.” 

Breaking: Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and Catherine Ashton discuss Ukraine over the phone by Michael Bergman – Officers of Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) loyal to the ousted President Viktor Yanukovich have hacked phones of Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet and High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and leaked their conversation to the web. The officials discuss their impressions of what’s happening in the country after the revolution. The gist of it is that Ukrainian people have no trust in any of the leaders of Maidan. However the most striking thing of all is the fact which concerns the use of force during the revolution, particularly the snipers who killed both protesters and officers of the riot police. Mr. Paet reveals astonishing information which confirms the rumours that the snipers were employed by the leaders of Maidan. 

 

Foreign Intervention in the Ukraine Crisis – “In the latest startling revelation, Pando.com has published documents implicating the Omidyar Network in the funding of the current Ukrainian protest movement. The Omidyar Network is the NGO of billionaire Ebay co-founder Pierre Omidyar, who recently set up “First Look” as an outlet for (among others) Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill and Laura Poitras to selectively publish some of the Snowden document archive, 99% of which continues to be withheld from the public… As supposedly “progressive” outlets once again scramble to throw their support behind the billionaire oligarchs and NGOs that have helped to destabilize the country, and as neocons unite with neoliberals in their agenda to carve up Ukraine for western interests, it remains to be seen what genuine alternative outlets will stand up against this blatant interference and stand up for the principle that it is up to the Ukrainian people, and no one else, to decide what happens in their country.”

Song for this blog: Full Spectrum Dominance – Edward Snowden exposed NSA Total Information Surveillance and “Democratic” Party Senator Diane Feinstein’s secret deal to keep that extreme level of police state surveillance a secret until 2038! As Puppet Prez Obama joked about the young men who might be interested in his daughters, “Predator drones: You won’t see it coming!” As my song says, “Beware of those who joke about sending in the drones!”
