99rise takes Scotus by storm, Jeffrey Sterling Wins by Losing out to Justice Corrupted

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Tue, 01/27/2015
Yesterday afternoon CIA whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling was convicted of all nine of the remaining counts he was facing.
 
ExposeFacts has stayed on this trial of the century - any century, really - right from the get-go up until the bitter end.  and it was bitter indeed.  But this is merely the theater that sets the stage for Republican's romp through the fields of freedom.  It is going to get unbelievably worse.   


Norman Solomon writes: “Many of the two-dozen witnesses from the Central Intelligence Agency conveyed smoldering resentment that a whistleblower or journalist might depict the institution as a bungling outfit unworthy of its middle name. Some witnesses seemed to put Sterling and journalist James Risen roughly in the same nefarious category -- Sterling for allegedly leaking classified information that put the CIA in a bad light, and Risen for reporting it. . . . If Sterling goes to prison, a major reason will be that the CIA leadership is angry about being portrayed as an intelligence gang that can’t shoot straight.”

Taking 'Merlin' to Court: Will Journalism Ever be the Same?

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Thu, 01/15/2015
What follows is gleaned from firedoglake.  It complements David Swanson's terrific interview this morning on 'Air Cascadia'

Jeffrey who?
 
Some people have heard of James Risen, a New York Times reporter who refused to name his source for a story. Damn right. Good for him. But what was the story and whom did the government want named as a source? Ah. Those questions might seem obvious, but the reporting on James Risen has avoided them like the plague for years and years now. And the independent media is not always as good at creating a story as it is at improving on stories in the corporate press.
 
Jeffrey Sterling went to Congress with his story. He was a CIA case officer. He is accused of having taken his story to James Risen. The prosecution is quite clearly establishing, against its own interest, during the course of this trial already, that numerous people were in on the story and could have taken it to Risen. If Sterling is to be proved guilty of the non-crime of blowing the whistle on a crime, the prosecution has yet to hint at how that will be done.
 
But what is the story? What is the crime that Sterling exposed for that tiny sliver of the population that’s interested enough to have listened? (Sure, Risen’s book was a “best seller” but that’s a low hurdle; not a single prospective juror in Alexandria had read the book; even a witness involved in the case testified Wednesday that he’d only read the one relevant chapter.)
 
The story is this. The CIA drew up plans for a key part of a nuclear bomb (what a CIA officer on Wednesday described in his testimony as “the crown jewels” of a nuclear weapons program), inserted flaws in the plans, and then had a Russian give those flawed plans to Iran.
 
During the trial on Wednesday morning, the prosecution’s witnesses made clear both that aiding Iran in developing a part of a bomb would be illegal under U.S. export control laws, and that they were aware at the time that there was the possibility of what they were doing constituting just such aid.

Charlie Ebdo, Copwatch and the ICC

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Wed, 01/14/2015
1, The  ARMY CORP will be joining DEQ at their meetings scheduled across Southern Oregon starting in Coos Bay on Jan 14th...  PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND THESE MEETINGS where you will be given information on what the agencies are needing and looking for in regards to comments.  THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! And with all the local talent brouhaha , let's let Cheryly Strayed know that if she loves this part of the world as much as she says she does - and after all the money she has made - then perhaps she ought to break a little of it all off in the name of saving remote rivers, streams and shores…
 
 
2,  Utah prosecutors are dropping charges against four animal activists filed under a controversial law known as “ag-gag.”  The activists from California and Maryland will still each face one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass. Prosecutors received the case after the four activists pleaded not guilty last week.  The charges being dropped came under a law that makes it a crime to conduct undercover investigations of slaughterhouses and factory farms. It’s being challenged by activists who say it was designed to prevent exposure of unsafe practices.
 
 
3, 
    Reem Khalifa a courageous journalist in Bahrain, said this: "We have 12 freelance photojournalists in jail. Only three of them were convicted -- one is serving 10 years. Many were tortured. The camera is a tool that the government of Bahrain fears. In 2011 publisher Karim Fakhrawi was tortured until death. In 2012, Ahmed Ismail was killed by a gun while he was filming. ... Human rights defender Nabeel Rajab, who was in jail for posting a tweet criticized the prime minister and minister of interior. Now after spending two years in jail, Rajab was released and he is facing another trial and verdict to come on Jan. 20." We are pulling out the stops to get her back on Air Cascadia.
 
 
4,  Last Wednesday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon announced that Palestine would become a member of the International Criminal Court on April 1. That same day, Sen. Rand Paul introduced legislation to cut off US aid to the Palestinian Authority— about $400 million a year—if the Palestinians don’t withdraw their application to join the ICC. [1] And on Friday, Sens. Lindsey Graham, Chuck Schumer, Bob Menendez, and Mark Kirk released a statement saying that the Palestinian decision to join the ICC was “deplorable, counterproductive, and will be met with a strong response by the United States Congress.” And now comes the Charlie Ebdo fiasco. If this doesn’t set the Israelis off…And of course Bibi is making hay on the PR end of things.  They are shameless – but no less so than America’s contribution to idiocy and violence.
 
5,  This comes from he indefatigable Dan Handleman:  COMMENTS on Citizen Review Committee Crowd Control Report
(being presented to City Council Wednesday, January 14)
from Portland Copwatch
January 13, 2015
 
Members of City Council:
 
Portland Copwatch (PCW) is extremely concerned that after hearing from demonstrators, lawyers, members of the public and from PCW about the use of weapons at protests-- including batons, pepper spray, horses, and bicycles-- the Citizen Review Committee's Crowd Control report does not even mention these items. Their Work Group had promised to at least mention the weapons in an "other concerns raised during our process" section. While many of the recommendations they make are on point and productive, it is the use of violence that most concerns our group and many people who have witnessed or been subjected to that violence over the many years we've been active.
 
We also had hoped Tasers would be addressed although we're not aware of Taser use at protest actions to date, they are allowed by the current and proposed revised policies (and should not be). We repeatedly suggested CRC recommend banning the use of all of these weapons, and though there was discussion on the idea, that discussion is not reflected in the document.

David Fidanque

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Thu, 01/08/2015
As of March 31st, Executive Director, David Fidanque, after 22 years leading the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon, plans to retire. Back in 1993, when Fidanque took over more than 30 statewide and local anti-gay ballot measures put forward by the Oregon Citizens Alliance were boiling over. David immediately committed resources to challenging those measures in the courts, in the legislature and at the ballot box. – and won…’The arc of history is long, but it bends’… Yes. But it only bends under a strong, intelligent and persistent hand. Fidanque started his career as a television and radio reporter in Eugene covering politics and crime. From there he moved on to managing the ACLU’s Eugene office in 1982. Then the Oregon Chapter of the ACLU. And now David Fidanque is still moving forward.

'Conversations'

Change is coming.  Fifteen minutes is a strange island in time.  Andy Warhol famously reminded everyone tha t everyone gets fifteen minutes of fame. Fame of course is not on the 'Air Cascadia' agenda.
            So here's the change: KBOO is a treasure trove of extraordinary wonders, there is the News, The Public Affair, the Music and beyond. But it tends to be an echo chamber. Listeners hear largely material they agree with. There is no controversy. So I am proposing that each day, each episode Of AC, I launch a topic from the news.  I may or may not invite a guest to join us. But what we are going to do is invite callers to weigh in.  We will caution Caller #1 to be brief, allow our guest and/or our Caller #2 to speak and stay on the subject.  One other caller will be invited to call in and disagree with Caller # 1.  Caller #2 does not necessarily need to personally espouse the contrary position.  Caller #2 must simply dispute Caller #1's position. 
            'Cascadia Conversations' will be surprising for  all concerned for countless reasons.  The idea is to break out of the KBOO echo chamber and offer listeners a forum for dissent, wit and the unexpected.
Two callers. One topic. Opposite points of view ...

Air Cascadia 2015

 
How many years now? Air Cascadia has been the center of my life for how many years? It is hard to count.  As loyal listeners know, the program emerged from the lamented loss of the KBOO Morning News.
But change is coming.  Fifteen minutes is a strange island in time.  Andy Warhol famously reminded everyone that everyone gets fifteen minutes of fame. Fame of course is not on the 'Air Cascadia' agenda.
So here's the change: KBOO is a treasure trove of extraordinary wonders, there is the News, The Public Affair, the Music and beyond. But it tends to be an echo chamber.

Reese Erlich on Cuba and America

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Fri, 12/19/2014

My guest today, Reese Erlich really needs no introduction. Listen to him and draw your own conclusions.   But first, 'This Message from Stanley Cohen'...

The race to save Peter Kassig | Ali Younes, Shiv Malik, Spencer Ackerman and Mustafa Khalili at The Guardian:

“On the evening of 3 October, the New York attorney Stanley Cohen got a phone call about Peter Kassig, the young American aid worker held hostage by Islamic State (Isis). The callers were Palestinians from the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp in Lebanon who knew Kassig, and they were “very upset”, Cohen recalled. They had just seen the footage of Alan Henning, a British hostage, being beheaded. At the end of the video, when the masked terrorist who has been dubbed “Jihadi John” paraded another hostage before the camera, they recognised their friend Peter.
 
Kassig had done relief and medical work in Sabra and Shatila, and even helped raise money for the refugees, before he was kidnapped in October 2013. “He’s a good guy,” the callers told Cohen. Given the pace of previous Isis executions – roughly once a fortnight since August – they feared Kassig might have only two weeks left to live. They were desperate to save him, and thought that Cohen would have contacts among militants in the region who could lobby for Kassig’s release.
 
Cohen is one of America’s most controversial lawyers: he has spent the past three decades defending clients that others found indefensible: Weather Underground radicals, Black Bloc anarchists, Hamas operatives. (“The entire Hamas leadership,” Cohen says, “are friends of mine and have been for years.”) Cohen was the defence lawyer for Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, Suleiman Abu Ghaith – the highest-ranking al-Qaida figure to face trial in a US federal court since the 9/11 attacks – who was sentenced to life in prison in September.”

Finding Cuba with Alan Gross, 'International Man of Mystery' and more...

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Thu, 12/18/2014
Here's the quote of the day from the Institute for Public Accuracy:
   Larry  Birns is the director of Council on Hemispheric Affairs, which today released a statement: "Alan Gross was working in Cuba as a sub­contractor of the United States Agency for International Developments (USAID) in 2009, when Cuban authorities arrested him. A Cuban court convicted Gross for smuggling illegal satellite equipment into the island, which in Cuba is considered a crime against the state.
 
    "Given decades of U.S. deployment of psy­ops and other subversive activity against the Cuban regime, it is not implausible to believe that Gross was likely a player in (intentional or not) a CIA­-USAID plot to weaken Castro’s rule under cover of a human rights project. At the time, Havana was undergoing a transition to normal relations with Washington after decades of a 'special period' of economic hardship in Cuba caused by the U.S. economic embargo and exacerbated by the fall of the Soviet Union.
 
    "It was not the first time, nor presumably the last, that the CIA and USAID have been caught in a plot to overthrown Cuba's government through cultural or human rights projects on the island. For example, the CIA­-USAID partners promoted a 'Cuba Twitter' program aiming at overthrowing the government. The latest one to date was a story exposed by The Nation, which reported a USAID-financed cultural project, aimed at promoting certain political behavior among the dynamic Cuban hip hop scene. These projects, if not futile, routinely prove to be at the very least completely 'reckless' and 'stupid' endeavors, as stated by Sen. Patrick Leahy. One can only agree with his reasonable statements."  
And Larry Birns is our guest on the show today.

There is a great deal going on around the block, around the worldthese days...

Two weeks after the White House awarded the City of Portland and 15 other cities across the U.S. the title of “Climate Action Champion,” Oregon’s Climate Action Coalition says Portland Mayor Charlie Hales is in danger of being viewed as a “climate hypocrite” for pushing forward on a plan for a major propane export terminal in the city. Mayor Hales has expressed public support for the terminal.
 
‘hypocritical’ is perhaps too delicate a term for Hale’s project.  But after all, you buy the ticket, you take the ride.  And Hales rode in on his dubious transportation past and he likely will ride out from the propane terminal out and into the sunset.  Go East, Old Man, Go East!  to put an end to fossil fuel infrastructure development in the City of Portland, starting with a proposal being developed by one of the most profitable companies in the Canadian tar sands of Alberta, Pembina,” said Dr. Adriana Voss-Andreae, Chair of 350PDX.

Kathy Kelly & Voices for Creative Non-Violence Drowning Out The Drone of War

program: 
Air Cascadia
program date: 
Tue, 12/16/2014
Here are a few notes from today's show:  and links to  accompany them:
http://vcnv.org/


 1,  On Saturday, December 20 at 4 PM, the Albina Ministerial Alliance for Justice and Police Reform will lead a Prayer Vigil and March through Northeast Portland in memory of Michael Brown, killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner, killed by a police chokehold in Staten Island, New York. In both cases, grand juries failed to bring indictment for their deaths. The Prayer Vigil and Rally will also honor Trayvon Martin and Tamir Rice, a 12 year old shot by police in Cleveland, as well as Portland victims of police shootings and deadly force, including Kendra James (2003), James Jahar Perez (2004), James Chasse (2006), Aaron Campbell (2010), Keaton Otis (2010), Jose Mejia Poot (2001) and others. The theme of the Vigil and March is a Cry for Justice.
 
2,,  Portland Rising Tide delivers ‘People’s Restraining Order’ to Kinder Morgan because  In Solidarity We Trust!   Monday a group of activists interrupted business as usual at the Vancouver office of Kinder Morgan to deliver a ‘People’s Restraining Order’ against the company’s plans to expand the Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline in British Columbia.
A representative from Kinder Morgan’s office tried to prevent protesters from entering the office by blocking the door. He refused to receive the ‘People’s Restraining Order,’ calling the peaceful gathering a major disruption.
The proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion would transport oil from the Alberta tar sands, and would travel through un-ceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Selilwitulh territories in British Columbia.
 
2,  Dodd Frank, rein in the banks!   On December 11, the House passed the 2015 federal budget (H.R. 83) by a vote of 219-206, appropriating more than $1 trillion for federal agencies. Buried in the 1,600 pages of the bill's text are hundreds of controversial provisions, known as "policy riders,".   They are there for the benefit powerful industries.    One of the most controversial provisions is a measure that was written by lobbyists for Citigroup. The provision rolls back part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that prohibits entities insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) from trading complicated financial devices known as custom swaps, a type of derivative. Just four banks, Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase, control more than 90 percent of the banking industry's swaps market.
 
3,  The U.S. Senate has voted 89-11 to approve the Defense Authorization Act of 2015, following the December 4 U.S.House of Representatives' 300-119 up-vote and now awaits President Barack Obama's signature.   The 1,616-page piece of pork barrel legislation contains a provision — among other controversial measures — to streamline permitting for hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) on U.S. public lands overseen by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a unit of the U.S. Department of Interior.
 
4,  California’s Diablo Canyon nuclear reactors are surrounded by earthquake faults they were never designed to withstand. They are riddled with design flaws and can’t meet basic fire safety standards. They dump huge quantities of hot water into the ocean in defiance of state water quality standards, killing billions of sea creatures.  So the struggle continues.  There is always  a riddle to solve.  always a war on the horizon....

Comments

membership means more

your threat of quitting your membership gives me two options for analysis:

1) you gave money to Theresa via KBOO.

2) if Theresa died tomorrow, you'd give up your membership.

my interpretation

1) that's cool, man.  you support community-based radio based solely on your dedication to one weekly half-hour show. that demonstrates that Theresa's voice represents/intrigues you (and many, many others); however you don't feel represented by any one of the other 500 people who volunteer their time and energy in the 24/7 endevour, and you don't value the input (and miraculous existence!) of the other 5-10,000 members and ten times as many listeners; neither do you support the KBOO mission of including as many underrepresented voices as possible on the air, with natural turnover, schedule changes and opportunities as new people arrive.  Membership gives you the power to affect the decision-making, which is why you gave money to Theresa via KBOO; and, by golly, you will do everything in your power to keep her on the air, and you want the KBOO website visitors to know how you feel when they read the comments.  You'd even like them to join you in your fight.

2) wow.

my opinion

Personally, Theresa's show is one of my  favourites and there are plenty of shows that I not only don't like or don't listen to, but also complain about out loud.  It's my radio station, and, like my family, I will not be quiet when they need to shape up or ship out.

writing inflammatory statements on the webpage will remain simply that: inflammatory statements with a reaction or two from trolls (see the 20 pages of Anonymous written about me because of the audio I submitted that Jenka edited), which, in the end, result in: NOTHING.  If you want to chat with others online, that's fine, but you should know that nothing said here is considered in the Committee meetings. It's just an informal public forum, not policy binding.

my advice

Instead of threatening us (volunteers, members, listeners and our very existence), why not use your valuable internet time to phrase it as, for example, a question to which one of us could easily respond:  "Have there been any changes to Theresa's show?  I noticed lately that it has been preemented or even cut.  It is my favourite show. [I fear Air Cascadia will take its place--not necessary but very telling that you chose Chris' page to write it--ed.]. "  You can copy the question to Theresa's email (though I know from experience she doesn't respond) and/or print it out and put it in her cubby hole at the station. And/or show up to the meetings.  And/or call Theresa during her show--she takes calls, you know.  Ask her if she'll train or mentor you to do the same kind of work she does.

p.s.  Air Cascadia basically is the AM News is Chris Andreae: i was engineering {i'm flattered that you liked it}and was very sad when it was cut--but that is the way of the station; we adhere and adapt to the ever-fluctuating needs of the larger community--but i watched, with great pleasure, as it morphed into Air Cascadia.  Though i adore Dennis Bernstein, 15 less minutes of his voice is no skin off my back. 

Highting!

Crystal

air cascadia

im a conservative right wing trucker and i think cris andrae is the greatest broadcaster on the radio. i try to listen when i dont need traffic reports.
her scathing commentary is the best. i would join kboo but i fear america will become too weak and barry will force me to find a green job soon . keep up the good work

The anchor news program

The anchor news program Democracy Now, conveiniently aired at 11 AM so that all could tune in was moved to 7 AM with a result that most if not all of the people who work nights won't be tuning in as they are still sleeping. Also missed the 40th anniversary bash as it was inconveinently held from 4 to 10 Pm, on a weekday, which would exclude anyone working swing from attending unless they took a day off. Why couldn't this have been held on a Saturday or Sunday?
Air Cascadia is a very rough and unpolished program that leaves me tuning to OPB or just turning it off.
The choppy, emergent voice of Cris Andreae is certainly a large part in that.
If it is true that Press Watch will be axed for this then it will be an easy decision to withhold future pledges from this listener.

What happened to Presswatch?

Is Air Cascadia taking over what Therisa has been doing? If so, I may give up my membership. First, the am news gets axed to accomodate Democracy Now, now is Presswatch going under the plow?
