Protest and action

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 01/18/11

Air date: 
Tue, 01/18/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe tour the checkered history of the FBI and its future in Portland.

 The City of Portland and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have had a tumultuous relationship in recent years. First, Portland opted out of the Bush-era Joint Terrorism Task Force, citing concerns over civil liberties. Then, late last year, the FBI foiled its own plot to blow up the Christmas-tree lighting ceremony in Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Now, the Bureau wants to splash $65 million on a new headquarters building near the airport, and the City is thinking about getting back together again. Abe and Joe take a look at the FBI's past, and weigh in on the question of re-joining the JTTF.

MLK's Legacy


Audio here.

These days, everybody wants a piece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Last year, Glen Beck invoked King's legacy to promote his own rally, claiming the tea party was fighting the same fight as King. And last week, the general counsel of the Department of Defense (as it's euphemistically called), claimed that despite King's opposition to the war in Vietnam, he would support America's military actions today. As the editors at Common Dreams point out, this suggests the DoD is operating in some alternate reality.
