Guest 1:  Will Allen 

 In 1985, Will Allen became a member of The Buddhafield, a Los Angeles area spiritual group. A recent film school graduate, Allen began to chronicle the group’s activities that centered on their leader, a mysterious individual they called The Teacher, or Michel. Over time, the group’s dark side began to surface, until finally, a shocking allegation against The Teacher tore the group apart – all in front of Allen’s camera. This incredible archive of video footage became the basis for  HOLY HELL.

Guest 2:  German Director Michael von Hohenberg

“Final Picture” -  “Yellow Oscar” winner for best nuclear war movie worldwide.   Story of the hideous aftermath of a nuclear war when no one on earth is spared radioactive fallout. The haven for skeptics are fallout shelters, which the more realistic of us understand that the great danger is not from bomb explosions but from the long-term spread of

far-drifting radiation clouds. Even bombs dropped  thousands of miles away, and hundreds of feet underground will eventually take their toll when deadly radiation clouds drift back.

Guest 1: Arun Kundnani is the author of The Muslims are Coming! Islamophobia, Extremism, and the Domestic War on Terror and a lecturer at New York University. Sarah Lazare reports for AlterNet in "The FBI Has a New Plan to Spy on High School Students Across the Country," that: "Under new guidelines, the FBI is instructing high schools across the country to report students who criticize government policies and 'western corruption' as potential future terrorists, warning that 'anarchist extremists' are in the same category as ISIS and young people who are poor, immigrants or travel to 'suspicious' countries are more likely to commit horrific violence.

"Based on the widely unpopular British 'anti-terror' mass surveillance program, the FBI’s 'Preventing Violent Extremism in Schools' guidelines [PDF], released in January, are almost certainly designed to single out and target Muslim-American communities. However, in its caution to avoid the appearance of discrimination, the agency identifies risk factors that are so broad and vague that virtually any young person could be deemed dangerous and worthy of surveillance, especially if she is socio-economically marginalized or politically outspoken.

"This overwhelming threat is then used to justify a massive surveillance apparatus, wherein educators and pupils function as extensions of the FBI by watching and informing on each other."

 He said today: “The document aims to encourage schools to monitor their students more carefully for signs of radicalization but its definition of radicalization is vague. Drawing on the junk science of radicalization models, the document dangerously blurs the distinction between legitimate ideological expression and violent criminal actions.
 
 “In practice, schools seeking to implement this document will end up monitoring Muslim students disproportionately. Muslims who access religious or political material will be seen as suspicious, even though there is no reason to think such material indicates a likelihood of terrorism.”
Guest 2: Dr. Francis Boyle - Talking about Zika Virus man-made as a GMO. Francis Anthony Boyle is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois with degrees from the University of Chicago, magna cum laude from Harvard Law , and further Ph.Ds. from Harvard University.

Guest 3: Tracy Rosenberg, author of Pacifica in Exile Newsletter. In an unsigned blast, former Pacifica IED Margy Wilkinson attacked her colleagues on the national board who assisted her in taking over national leadership in 2014 (including several she called "workables" in her notepad) accusing them of "grabbing KPFA's money" and "redirecting it".

The board's 11-5 vote that the bequest had been redirected incorrectly to KPFA's exclusive use by Wilkinson was taken on October 29th. Taking advantage of the board's penchant for confidentiality, Wilkinson characterized the contents of the 60-pages of related documents no one besides the board is being allowed to see for more than a week.

Wilkinson, PNB treasurer Brian Edwards-Tiekert, and LA-based KPFA listener rep Jose-Luis Fuentes bitterly fought the release of the documentation on Thursday night to the local station boards. Wilkinson secretly set up a duplicate nonprofit foundation in California using Pacifica's mission statement to acquire Pacifica's broadcasting licenses under her sole control "should Pacifica go bankrupt". 

Wilkinson ends her screed with the comment that members of the slate opposed to her own Siegel/Brazon faction "Members of the UCR slate have long championed replacing unionized staff with volunteer-produced programming".

Wilkinson in a last-minute maneuver on her very last day as Pacifica's director appointed slate-mate Leslie Radford, an unqualified community college instructor, as KPFK's general manager. Radford has been aggressively replacing unionized staff with volunteer-produced programming in LA and created the biggest labor crisis for Pacifica in 16 years, with more than 20 different grievances being arbitrated with the SAG-AFTRA union, including withheld seniority pay, pension deposits and union dues totaling more than $100,000 by Wilkinson as Pacifica's IED.

Melting Pot host/producer Michael Barnes became the 4th KPFK show host to quit on air Friday night saying "he was done with the place and how badly it was being managed". 

The cognitive dissonance indicates that Wilkinson herself does not have a consistent set of beliefs about how Pacifica should be run, only a willingness to do whatever she believes necessary for her own faction to remain in power until she is able to un-hook KPFA's broadcasting license for her own company.

Continuing on that theme, PNB treasurer Brian Edwards-Tiekert claimed that "financial stability has been recovered at KPFA due to windfall income" and electioneered for Wilkinson's re-election.

The hit piece ended with a plea for loyal Siegel/Brazonites to attempt to shut down this Pacifica In Exile publication by filing complaints with the email service, as the faction prefers the only information provided to members about the foundation's governance come from them. Everything else is labeled a "conspiracy theory".

Segment 3:  Live call-ins - Why Bernie/why Hillary?
Whom do you support for the Democratic nominee for president, and how civil are you prepared to be about it. The peoples email Network reminds us "let us not be like the haters on the Republican side.  Anyone who tries to mud wrestle with Trump, using insults and gratuitous name calling will lose. He can be attacked on the issues, but most effectively if we do not stoop to his level.  Those who respond to such tactics will never be won over by our side. Is it too early to argue for a joint ticket, especially after the blowout yesterday in SC? Sanders must prove himself by winning a bunch of states.  Only then can we argue that an alliance between him and Hillary is required for victory."
