    Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the following:


     


    1. This past Monday was Martin Luther King Day. We remember the contributions of King. As we recall King's anti-militarism and anti-imperialism, his class consciousness, and commitment to democratic socialism and fighting racism, the contrast with Malcolm D's defensivdistorter as opposed to King's pacifist strategy are often debated.


    2. Author/Activist Paul Street wrote an article titled, "Race Without Class: the “Bougie” Sensibility of Ta-Nehisi Coates." We'll discuss this and more.


    3.The Iran nuclear deal, which was completed last week, trigering the end of sanctions.


    4.The UK's accusation that Putin ordered the assassination of a former Russian agent living in London.


     


    Plus, Dan Welch, activist and creator of The Greenhouse School, may join us to discuss his perdiction that Bernie Sanders may win the presidency. All this,plus your calls.

    Fatal Mistakes: Festering Militarism

    in Politics Conservative

    You can learn from mistakes, but sometimes the mistakes are fatal. Our fatal mistakes have wounded but not killed this grand experiment in liberty yet. The longer we wait to revitalize our principles of liberty and virtue, the more extreme the correction will need to be and the harm more severe.


    We are divided between those who believe in limited government and those who prefer anarchy or tyranny. Liberty needs limited government to facilitate the protection of our rights. Liberty is practically gone because those of us on the ‘right’ fight amongst ourselves over quibbling garbage instead of uniting on restoring sound money, free markets, religious and civil liberties and a sensible foreign policy of non-interventionism.


    Our fatal mistakes are our own. The uber-national corporatists fearfully manipulate us, plunder us with financial malfeasance, and instill fear with their festering militarism. Democratism merely appeases the fickle mobs by satisfying disordered passions, while binding them with invisible chains.


    Our fatal mistakes can be corrected and the cost will be great; but the cost of infighting amongst those of us who love the Old Republic and the Constitution is far, far greater.


    Tyranny is assured UNLESS liberty-loving people band together to restore Constitutional governance by taking the right-wing of the Welfare/Warfare Party; or watch the statists in both parties push their corporatist agenda to their benefit and our demise. Now is the last chance to stop those who perpetuate an empire abroad and a police state at home. To defeat the lawless hordes of Cultural Marxists, the statists, collectivists, oligarchs, useful idiots and their fellow travelers especially the Democrat-socialists, first you MUST CRUSH the RINOs, for liberty!

    Neoliberalism, Imperialism and Urban Development pt. 1

    in History

    In 2004, an agreement was reached between the United States and South Korean governments to move all U.S. forces in the country south of the Han River. This move will relocate the United States Forces Korea from the heart of Seoul to Camp Humphreys, outside the mid-sized city of Pyeongtaek, and to a second major garrison outside of Daegu. 

    The process, scheduled to be completed next year, will consolidate more than 28,000 troops into two regional hubs and will transform Camp Humphreys into the largest U.S. Army garrison in Asia.

    As the population of the garisson increases from 5,000 Soldiers and 7000 civilians, family members and contractors to more than 37,000 by 2016, civic authorities for the city of Pyeongtaek have developed ambitious plans for the expanding city including a major Samsung semiconductor chip plant, the world’s largest fuel cell power plant, an expanded maritime port, a free economic zone and tens of thousands of new housing developments. 

    Bridget K. Martin, a PhD student in Geography at UC Berkley, is researching the links between Militarism and Urbanization in South Korea. 

    In the first of a two-part interview she explains how American imperialism and Korean development, heavily connected since the end of the Korean War, are continuing to work together in new and surprising ways.

    Armistice Day

    in Politics

    Today we at RFK have a special program for Armistice Day, celebrating the end of World War I.


    "The war to end all wars."


    Courtesy the Global Research News Hour (60 min.) with guests: Michael Welch, Stan Goff, Joshua Key, David Swanson


    This episode of the Global Research News Hour takes a dissenting look at the Remembrance and Veterans' Day ceremonies,and similar memorializing and valourization of the soldier as an instrument by which anti-war sentiments and organizing are subverted. The episode looks at what it will take to dismantle the mythology of militarism in our society. We speak with an outspoken anti-war activist and blogger, who is also the author of several books including 'War is a Lie' and 'When the World Outlawed War'. We also air a previously broadcast interview with Stan Goff and Joshua Key. Stan Goff is a Retired Master Sergeant from the U.S. Army. He is now a pacifist and author of a number of books including his most recent, Borderline – Reflections on War, Sex, and Church from Wipf and Stock (Cascade Books).

    Joshua Key deserted the Iraq War in 2003,and crossed the border into Canada in 2005. He is the author along with Lawrence (Book of Negroes) Hill of The Deserter’s Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier who Walked Away from the War in Iraq. Having failed to secure refugee status, he is concerned he could soon be deported from Canada and sent to a military prison.

    Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast

    in Politics

    Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We will feature our regular PANW reports with dispatches on events involving the United States supported and coordinated occupation of Somalia by the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) where a base was overrun recently killing AU troops and capturing Ugandan soldiers; the British media has finally exposed the role of their government in the ongoing bombing and ground operations aimed at taking control of Yemen from the Ansurallah movement and its allies; the European migration crisis is a direct result of imperialist militarism in Africa, the Middle East and Asia illustrating the racist character of immigration policy and the horrendous treatment being meted out to migrants in Hungary; and the Black Lives Matter movement is being targeted for intelligence and law-enforcement disruption inside the U.S. while the number of deaths at the hands of the police has reached astronomical proportions despite Washington's "human rights" rhetoric around the world. In the second and third hours we focus on our month-long examination of the history of race relations in the U.S. and internationally. The program highlights an interview with long-held American Indian Movement political prisoner Leonard Peltier and an historical account of the role of the Black Seminoles in the fight against U.S. imperialist expansionism in the North American southeast. Finally we look back at the Attica Rebellion some 44 years later and the worsening problems of the prison-industrial-complex and its role in the national oppression of African Americans.
