LAURA JOHNSTON KOHL
Laura Johnston Kohl grew up as an activist in Washington, D.C., and watched as many of her heroes were assassinated in the 1960s. While she was in high school and college, John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and others were killed. That had a huge impact on her. She attended college in Connecticut and continued her commitment to work for change and to make a difference. While exercising her civil rights to protest peacefully, she was tear-gassed while protesting the war in Viet Nam. After a brief marriage, a visit to Woodstock, and a stint working with the Black Panthers, she moved to California to join her sister.
Soon after that, she was introduced to Peoples Temple and spent the next nine years in California and Guyana. She was away from Jonestown on the day when 913 of her friends and family died. The next twenty years were spent recovering, and rebuilding her life
CHURCH FOLK REVOLUTION RADIO -Today we will have part two to our show on Wed where we take a look at how to get family members out of controlling churches. Do you have family members who are in a cult? Do you have family members who are under Apostolic control? How to escape Jonestown is a most listen to episode as we continue this call to redirect Christians back to Christ.
Our special guest tonight is Laura Johnston Kohl, Jonestown survivor and author of “Jonestown Survivor: An Insider’s Look.”
Laura Johnston Kohl was in Georgetown when the mass murder/suicide of 918 people occurred in Jonestown. Laura has written the book to tell her perspective of this tragic event in history.
In Laura’s past, she was an activist in Washington D.C. and watched as many of her heroes were assassinated in the 60s. During her years at college in Connecticut, she actively worked to make a difference in the world. Laura protested peacefully to fight against the war in Viet Nam and was tear-gassed in the process. She married, divorced and made a trip to Woodstock, followed up by a period of working with the Black Panthers. Soon after, she moved to California to be with her sister.
During this time, she was introduced to Peoples Temple where she spent the following nine years in California and then moved to Guyana with the group. She was away from Jonestown on November 18, 1978, when 913 of her friends and family died.
Tonight, Laura will talk about her life in Jonestown and her book, “Jonestown Survivor: An Insider’s Look”.

INTRODUCING: JOECEPHUS and The GEORGE JONESTOWN MASSACRE Blazing a trail out of Memphis, Tennessee, Joecephus and his always revolving band The George Jonestown Massacre are on a roll. Having been referred to as the link between Motorhead and Merle Haggard and and having served as opening acts for such diverse artists as Shooter Jennings, David Allan Coe, Jesco White, Southern Culture On The
Skids, Jim Dickinson, Green Jelly, Torture King from Jim Rose Circus, Scott Biram, The Reverend Horton Heat, HR of the legendary Bad Brains and many more,
Joecephus has created a unique style by mixing "outlaw" country sounds with rockabilly rhythms, jazz improv, reggae, rock, and old school punk blurring the boundaries of music. Rigorous time spent in the studio and on the road has not gone unrewarded, the music of Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre can be heard on the following compilation cd's : Gravewax Record's Yells From The Crypt This is My Memphis Double Talkin Jive: A Tribute to Guns 'N Roses and in the indie movies: The Importance of Being Russell Grim Sweeper Beyond The Wall of Sleep The Best of Rachel Rotten. The band can also be heard on local Memphis radio and on SiriusXM Outlaw Country. Featuring members who come together from a prestigious list of some of Memphis' finest bands, this is just the beginning for a band that will be tearing shit up for a long time to come.
Do yourself a favor and experience the electrifying energy of Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre when they roll through your town. http://jk47.com
The connections are shocking to say the least. As implausable and it may seem there is considerable evidence that these seemingly unrelated issues are connected. The JFK assassination is the Rosetta Stone and the portal through which all forms of hidden tyranny can be seen. But only if you have the courage to enter into the American Heart of Darkness: http://www.amazon.com/American-Heart-Darkness-Transformation-Pathocracy/dp/1479793213/ref=sr_1_1_title_1_pap?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1404781283&sr=1-1&keywords=kirkconnell
Today we will explore these issues where many fear to tread. The next hour and a half could change the way you look at the United States of America. Are we really free or is it an illusion, or maybe a delusion? Let's take a look!
We will be blessed to have Jonestown Survivor Laura Johnston Kohl with us. She will be sharing her experience in the most dangerous cults in history. She is one of 87 survivors who escaped the Jim Jones Jonestown compound alive. Understanding is invaluable to help us understand modern day cults. Join in the conversation as we take a journey back in time to experience the horror of cult mind control.
On tonights magnificent episode of Death By DVD Ti West's most recent lack of effort, The Sacrament is discussed. Is it really a bad movie? No. Not in the least bit!
But what the hell? You know exactly why this is 30 minutes of Ti West getting called a douche bag. YOU KNOW.
Guyana was used and abused, like so many other lands full of Earth's gifts. We will discuss reasons why Guyana was the location for The Peoples' Temple exodus and spectacle. We will also expand on some snippets of our last episode, for clarification's sake.
Yes, we know that Kool-Aid and Cyanide were involved, but what were the Peoples' Temple, its origin, and its concentrations all about? This is one of the most publicized cases of mass murder, but what isn't publicized is how this situation is one of the most well-known cases of mind control experimentation.
Sorry about the absence of this episode last night, though it was posted. We will pick up this morning continuing discussing Jonestown and Jim Jones and The Peoples' Temple. Some brief mentions of topics of interest reflected in recent correspondences via social media also covered (Twitter discussions between people in the public eye).
An audio recording made on November 18, 1978, at the Peoples Temple compound in Jonestown, Guyana immediately preceding and during the mass suicide or murder of over 900 members of the cult.
This will take up the whole hour. The chat room will be open
