Taylor Report: Post-Oslo Palestine, A Country and a People Are Being "Defined Out of Existence", Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
Jonathan Kuttab is a human rights lawyer from East Jerusalem, and once a visiting professor at Osgoode Law School. He describes the content of his upcoming speaking engagements in Stratford and Toronto, and also discusses recent troubling events in Palestine. Kuttab argues that Israel has destroyed the possibility of a Palestinian state and the 'two-state solution.' Israel completely undermined the Oslo process by encroaching on Palestine via illegal settlements. Trump is attempting to solidify this conquest through handing Jerusalem entirely to Israel, and ending the 'right-to-return' by axing the UN refugee program. Trump's embrace of the Israeli position has removed the illusion of the U.S. as a 'mediator' in the conflict. The world will move away from the U.S./Israeli colonization effort.

TUC Radio: Michael Parenti, The Supremely Political Court, Segment 2

3 months 1 week ago
In his extraordinary 26 minute history of the Supreme Court Dr. Michael Parenti warned us in 1995 that this partisan, aristocratic institution might one day empower an autocratic president. It seems that time has come and two Trump appointees, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, can push the scales of justice in favor of their politics. Unless there is a groundswell to question and change the legal rules of that institution. Why is so much power being given to 9 unelected, non term limited judges. Michael Parenti was born into a working class Italian family in East Harlem, New York City. He went on to receive his Ph.D. in political science at Yale in 1962. His academic career was cut short by his dismissal after he was arrested for protesting the US war on Vietnam. Parenti became an independent scholar, lecturer and author. And he remained an activist as well. Over 20 years ago Parenti already pointed to the role of the court in concentrating wealth in the top 1 percent, and the way in which the Supreme Court expanded the power of corporations and laid the groundwork for what later became the Citizens United ruling of 2009. And most dangerously, how the Supreme Court began to give power to the president in matters of foreign policy and national security that neither Congress nor the Constitution had granted. Parenti said: “... by Judicial Fiat the President could now do whatever he wanted in the absence of specific legislative prohibitions.” The Supremely Political Court is part of the series: Democracy What Went Wrong , how the CIA, media, corporations, universities, police and the Supreme Court are threatening democracy and what might be done to meet challenge. The original series was produced by TUC radio in 1995.

This Week In Palestine: Rev. Graylan Hagler speaks after his recent trip to Palestine: Oppression continues when we're not watching, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
Welcome to This Week In Palestine, where each week you will hear the Palestinian narrative, the Palestinian perspective, the Palestinian voice exploring the realities of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian homeland. You will not hear this narrative very often in the western media, which is why it is important that it is presented each week on This Week In Palestine. Your host is John Roberts. This week’s presentation features Rev. Graylan Hagler, a true force in the Black church, civil rights leader, and a long, strong voice for Palestinian liberation. For many years Graylan served a church in Roxbury, MA, but currently is Pastor of the Plymouth Congregational Church in Washington, DC. Here he speaks at the Jerusalem Fund Palestine Center in DC. Rev. Hagler describes some of his experiences in his recent visit, among them being ordered at gunpoint to show his "papers." He compares Israel's oppression of Palestinians with the USA's historic program enslaving African Americans, tearing their families apart, robbing them of sustenance, etc.

Vyzygoth's Clubhouse: Orwell & Huxley - Part 2, Segment 1

3 months 1 week ago
Devotees of Orwell and Huxley have endlessly debated whether one would likely be more accurate than the other in his dark view of the future. Some think that one’s prescience was necessarily the abnegation of the other’s. In these audios, besides discussing the wrong approach with which these books were presented in high school, treating them more as metaphors rather than credible forewarnings about the potential dangers looming in the future. The works’ strong points are also advanced and treated as confirmation that Orwell and Huxley, jointly, were far more right than wrong. But now that the days they envisioned are upon us, how much of their dim views have come and are coming to fruition? And are readers of both authors any more aware that their signature works were not fiction?
