Building Bridges: The Politics of Immigration , Segment 1

38 minutes 26 seconds ago
The Politics of Immigration with Jane Guskin and David L. Wilson have been writing since 1990 about immigration, labor, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Their articles have appeared in Truthout, NACLA Report on the Americas, MRZine, The Huffington Post, and other publications. For over twenty years, they co-edited Weekly News Update on the Americas, an English-language bulletin covering grassroots news from Latin America. Guskin also edited a companion publication, Immigration News Briefs. The Politics of Immigration authors brilliantly interrogate this urgent subject that defines our time. Guskin and Wilson ask and answer dozens of crucial questions roiling the nation, ranging from why do people migrate and what are their impacts on U.S. society, to what are the contours of U.S. immigration law and what should a sensible 21st century policy look like. We desperately need to put aside false information about immigrants, to see them as we see ourselves with honesty and compassion. Guskin and Wilson give powerful meaning to the slogan No Human Being is Illegal. Guskin and Wilson will talk about why are people in other countries leaving their homes and coming here? What does it mean to be illegal? How do immigration raids, prisons, and border walls impact communities? Who suffers and who profits from our current system"and what would happen if we transformed it? Well go beyond soundbites to tackle these concerns to provide effective tools to confront current stereotypes and disinformation

The Alembic Files: Evil Under the Stars - 2b, Segment 1

18 hours 12 minutes ago
This is the part 2B of a series of interviews with Claxton, who utilized Biblical scripture, Starry Night software and the works of John Ackerman and Ernest L. Martin to explore the possibility that the Prince of the Air orchestrates earthly events in accordance with astronomical signs. Discussed further: With Venus, born of Jupiter (see John Ackerman’s work at http://www.firmament-chaos.com), and in a maternal/light bearer capacity, is moving from Cancer toward Leo (Royalty) and Regulus (the Kingly Star), President George H.W. Bush gave his “thousand points of light” speech 9-11-91 and, 10 years later, President George W Bush presided over the 9-11-01 attacks. It was as if the father heralded a new millennium—a new era ushered in under the son, during which the New World Order would commence its campaign whose objective is global rule. At this time, Jupiter (as Supreme) is in Gemini (Twins), Mars (Aggression/War) is in Sagittarius (Centaur with bow and arrow). And Mercury (Messenger) is in Virgo (Maiden) bearing down specifically on Spica, the brightest object in the constellation. Could it be that the Price of the Air, as supreme, initiated the New Millennium with the sacrifice of the Twin Towers as a message that the Maiden (Queen of Heaven and Satan’s counterfeit deity) will reign from this point unto eternity? Among other items: 9/11 symbolism in film, most notably the 2000 film “The Patriot” in which, early on, protagonist Benjamin Martin weighs his handcrafted chair as “9 pounds, 11 ounces” and Cornwallis summons his dogs Mars and Sagittarius. David Rockefeller’s role in the raising and razing of the towers. Was the Apollo 1 tragedy a ritual sacrifice to Apollyon and to silence Gus Grissom? Kubrick, again, as warning us about this nation’s evil in high places beyond “Dr. Strangelove” through “2001,” “Eyes Wide Shut” and his handing off “A.I.” to Steven Spielberg . . . . . . and more . . .

The Sonic Cafe: Sonic Cafe #126/Try Our Burma Shave Smoothies, Segment 1

22 hours 58 minutes ago
Sonic Café. That’s music from Dave Porter pulled from the Better Call Saul soundtrack. So how you doing? I’m Scott Clark, welcome to episode 126 of the Sonic Café. This time we pull our music mix from 12 genres, including one we call Burma Shave. Now Burma Shave may sound a bit unusual, but we feel it’s the only genre that comes close to classifying the music of Tom Waits. So listen for Tom, plus Robert Palmer, Fitz & the Tantrums, Concrete Blondes, Led Zeppelin, Bob Welch and more. Then later the Sonic Café presents British funny man Jimmy Carr, captured from a gig in Montreal. Jimmy hits us with a rapid-fire barrage of one-liners in a very tight set. I counted 20 in all. So hold on for that. And finally, the Sonic Café welcomes our newest sponsor. Listen for a word from Shady Acres, an exclusive condo development just for divorced, rich people… live like a one-percenter, come to Shady Acres. All that and ahh some other stuff too. So crank up the volume and enjoy the ride from that little café on the Pacific coast, where we feature 2 for 1 Burma Shave smoothies, each day, during happy hour. We’re the Sonic Café.
