The book by Dr. Andrés "Power and Control in the Imperial Valley" examines the evolution of irrigated farming in the Imperial-Mexicali Valley, an arid desert straddling the California–Baja California border. Bisected by the international boundary line, the valley drew American investors determined to harness the nearby Colorado River to irrigate a million acres on both sides of the border. The “conquest” of the environment was a central theme in the history of the valley.
Colonization in the valley began with the construction of a sixty-mile aqueduct from the Colorado River in California through Mexico. Initially, Mexico held authority over water delivery until settlers persuaded Congress to construct the All-American Canal. Control over land and water formed the basis of commercial agriculture and in turn enabled growers to use the state to procure inexpensive, plentiful immigrant workers.

The birth and development of the American police can be traced to a multitude of historical, legal and political-economic conditions. The institution of slavery and the control of minorities, however, were two of the more formidable historic features of American society shaping early policing. Slave patrols and Night Watches, which later became modern police departments, were both designed to control the behaviors of minorities. For example, New England settlers appointed Indian Constables to police Native Americans (National Constable Association, 1995), the St. Louis police were founded to protect residents from Native Americans in that frontier city, and many southern police departments began as slave patrols. In 1704, the colony of Carolina developed the nation's first slave patrol. Slave patrols helped to maintain the economic order and to assist the wealthy landowners in recovering and punishing slaves who essentially were considered property.
Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. Our regular PANW reports will examine the ongoing imperialist interference in the affairs of the African continent where African Union Chairperson Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe was disinvited to a African Development Bank gathering in Ivory Coast due to the subservience of that neo-colonial state to the French government which installed the current regime in Abidjan. Also the Palestinians are demonstrating against the deaths of a father and child at the hands of Israeli settlers; the Egyptian ousted President Mohamed Morsi is refusing food in prison because he suspects his life is in danger; and demonstrators took to the streets in Ferguson, Missouri in commemoration of the first anniversary of the police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown. During the second and third hour we continue our month-long acknowledgement of Black August in honor of those who have resisted racism, colonialism and neo-colonialism within the African world. In this segment further focus is placed on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act in the United States.
Join The Paranormal Outlaw, Tasha, Melissa, and Michelle as we welcome Karissa Fleck and Dennis Estlock as we discuss their recent investigation of Historic Henricus. Founded in 1611, Henricus was founded by people fleeing Jamestown, VA. These earlier settlers and the Native Americans they encountered have left an undeniable impression on both the land and the tools they used.

Joining us today on aSmilingWorld (aSmilingWorld.org) is Author and Publisher Anthony Greer who we had the pleasure to meet here in Seattle when we all were guests on the (AM Talk Radio Show) Dena Marie: Lift Your Spirts Show! Anthony is a great guy with a great story we know you will enjoy!
Anthony Greer is a slightly off-kilter contradiction. Sometimes he is a leaf on the wind and rides the sky waves wherever they him. He’s a great conversationalist as long as you don’t talk during Game of Thrones or Big Brother, and incredibly nice when he wants to trade resources with you in Settlers of Catan (don’t do it! It’s a trap!!!).
He was raised amongst the olive-skinned natives of a Long Island town before transplanted to the rain-coated, black coffee loving capital of the Starbucks world. He learned early after being too school for cool that bartending supported his addiction to structuring sentences into stories of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery and Young Adult.
Anthony is unafraid to make big moves in the game of life, but sometimes needs to be thrown off the plane to figure out how to fly. Like a nine-lived cat he always land on his feet, and when those thick-padded paws hit the dirt he bears a smile on his face and recants a knee-slapper he heard on his journey, laughing half-way through the joke and usually forgetting the rest.
TERRORISM AND THE ILLUMINATI
A T h r e e T ho u s a n d Y e a r H I STORY
The politicians and bankers always lie! So if they tell you they’re trying to solve your problem you have to ask, "From where did the problem arise in the first place?” How is it that year after year the politicians carefully and diligently steer our collective boat of destiny ever nearer to the rapids of destruction?” Please remember that the government, backed by the banking elite, who after all OWN the governments, GET EXACTLY WHAT THEY PAY FOR, if not it would not be a very good bargain, would it, and they would change the system. So when you ask, “Why don’t they ever change the system?” then now you know. The agenda rolls along, the plans go ahead. You become poorer. They become richer and you do nothing because you are worked to death and are too tired following the “agenda”.

History of the early Pioneers and Settlers 4-26-2011 @ 8pm EST
This show will be on discovering some of the planning and hardships faced by our early pioneers and explorers, as we know much can be learned from history and to study what perils the early settlers faced. I have researched the brave Pioneers who decided to travel and settle the western frontier. Through the lessons recorded in history we might be able to avoid making the same life threatening mistakes, such as excessive loads, being too eager to move, not waiting out the seasons and above all we may possibly avoid some of the diseases, much has been discovered and we posses a better understanding of them and their causes. Though not everyone has plans for running for the hills in the event of a disaster or emergency, the topic and discussion is important none the less, adding to our knowledge base and ability to react to the what if's.

Bill C-51 The Anti-Terrorism Act of 2015, as it is called by the Harper government, has generated more discussion, protest, trepidation, calls for abandonment and well founded fear than any other piece of legislation from Emperor's regime. The threats to rights and freedoms of all Canadians are real and visible. Respected voices such as Micheal Geist, Craig Forcese, Kent Roach, Elizabeth May and others have sounded the alarm. But the threats to indiginous peoples are far more pronounced and close to reality than any others. First Nations have upheld their end of Treaties with the Crown in memoriam while successive settler governments have neglected, ignored and subverted them.
Pam Palmater is a Mi'kmaw leader and member of the Eel River Bar First Nation. She has worked for the federal Ministries of Justice and Aboriginal & Northern Affairs. She has been a candidate for National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations. She is a lawyer, professor and chair of the Indiginous Governance program at Ryerson University. Pam has been a vocal supporter of Idle No More and numerous programs to involve and engage settlers and aboriginals alike to create the environment for the nation to nation equal allies that the Treaties promise. But the Harper government continues to move further and further away from that possibility.
The View Up Here has spent a long time trying to fit into Pam's busy schedule and are very honored to have her guest on the show and explain how First Nations are the potential primary targets of C-51. It has been said many times on this show that the only people left in Canada with any say on their air, water and land are First Nations. Now Emperor seeks to use false fear to try and steal these constitutionally guaranteed rights from the first people to inhabit these lands.
Join us and find why settlers should support First Nations peoples to defend us all.
