SORT BY Relevancy
Program Summary: April 25, 2015
@Naomi_Fowler produces for the Tax Justice Network the monthly "Taxcast."
In the April 2015 Taxcast: How just are our tax systems towards women? Plus: one of the USA's biggest corporations (and tax avoiders) is repatriating billions from offshore and re-focusing on good old manufacturing again, and remember how the UK Prime Minister was 'leading the world' in transparency measures not so long ago? We discuss the letter a former Cayman Islands lobbyist and Conservative peer wrote to reassure the tax haven that it was an empty gesture to distract from the proposed Financial Transaction Tax.
Then from Great Speeches and Interviews, Sacramento, CA "Inside the Police State."
Police officer Adrian Schoolcraft secretly recorded his supervisors telling officers to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests from 2008 to 2009. The Village Voice series that broke Schoolcraft's story was written by Graham Rayman. Ira Glass narrates the story. "Police Officer Schoolcraft, who worked in the relatively high-crime 81st precinct in Brooklyn, was not a happy camper. Some might call him a malcontent.
In 2009, he began to secretly tape-record precinct roll calls at which commanding officers ordered cops like himself to refuse to take robbery victims’ crime complaints. Cops were also ordered to downgrade felonies — which are serious crimes — to less serious misdemeanors so that the precinct would appear safer than it actually was. Schoolcraft’s secret tape recordings might well have been ignored, had not the police department then done something shocking. On Oct. 31, 2009, Schoolcraft left his tour early, saying he felt sick, and returned to his apartment in Queens. What happened next tells us much about "the police state."
On this edition of ALI: NATION we will continue our review of the "Police State" that is being demonstrated on the 14th Amendments citizens. We will look at North Carolina on a couple of matters - Supreme Court decision & a recent lynching.
We will go to the phones and hear from you!
Tune in strong days @ 3 PM PST/6 PM EST
Tonight's broadcast we revisit the events that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut as well as the rise of the police state and what we should be expecting. We are taking a deep look into the rights that we are being stripped of and how law enforcement is doing all they can to be known as Americas biggest gang. We will also talk about a 12 year old boy who was gunned down at a park in Cleveland, Ohio for having an airsoft gun. As always the phone lines will be open and we will be taking your calls.
In light of all the attention that police brutality is getting in the media, Down South and Dirty wants to take on the issue of the Police State and what it truly means past just the shooting of unarmed black men. You have cities literally farming their populations for operational funding. We have questions and we think you do too! So this episode is going to get Down and Dirty in a way that only Down South and Dirty can!! Remember our mid week show Hump Day Primetime!
With the growing conflicts in Ferguson over the death of Michael Brown, as well as the document released this week by the Department of the Army titled “Civil Disturbances,” we will be discussing the growing Police State within America that is starting to resemble Martial Law.
Despite the lack of confirmation of details regarding the death of Michael Brown, we have seen clashes every single night between protesters and police within Ferguson Missouri. We have seen wrong doing on both sides – there have been demonstrators reportedly throwing Molotov cocktails. There has been reports of gunfire coming from the crowd. The police department has deployed tear gas nightly. They have been using LRAD Sound Cannons, shooting flash grenades and rubber bullets and the media. One officer has been caught on video cursing at peaceful demonstrators and threatening to kill them.
We will also be attending the National Day of Rage in Dallas Texas as locals in North Texas gather to show their support for the demonstrators in Ferguson. We will be collecting sound bytes to play during our show as well.
What is becoming of the Land of the Free?

Wisconsin’s shame: ‘I thought it was a home invasion. Is this America?’; Politicized prosecution run amok in Wisconsin to kneecap an embryonic Scott Walker presidency and summarily destroy any conservative who ever supported him; Students fear for their safety because conservatives invited a speaker to campus; For a sneak preview of our future, Western Christians, consider the Middle East; The Left's moral schizophrenia and why it always wins at election time; and why the GOP needs to run against the entire twenty-first century to date by nominating Scott Walker.
Alternative media fans are obsessed with the coming police state and nanny state all over the world. Truthers are experiencing a phase of panic and paranoia on the path of enlightenment; however, this is a phase that we all go through in our process of consciousness evolution.

Events in Ferguson opened a lot of eyes to the fact that much of America is becoming a police state, with militarized police at that. The overwhelming response to nonviolent protests of the apparent execution of a young man by police was frightening to many people who always believed that if they weren't doing anything wrong, they had nothing to fear from the police.
How did the police get militarized? Will Congress do anything about it in the aftermath of Ferguson? Is it possible that the war on terror is an excuse for preparing for domestic unrest in the face of what many are predicting will be a complete collapse of the Ponzi scheme that the American and global financial system has become?
I address these and other questions with our resident political and economic expert Karl Eysenbach in this episode of Taking Back America. Eysenbach is a frequent guest on this show and blogs at Old New Lefty.
This show will be rebroadcast on September 13 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.
