WHFM: Herman's Radio & Record Room #18, Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
My father Herman Frederick Moe was a radio engineer & TV repairman, a country & western "cowboy singer" and rustic guitar player. He performed in the late 1930’s on live radio before he enlisted in World War II as a radio-telephone technician. This show is my homage to him. My father loved the other side of radio as well – the listening side – it kept him company during many lonesome nights in the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s & 60's. From my imagination to your ears – it’s WHFM – vintage music from mid century America. This is music that I believe he would have enjoyed during that era

Taylor Report: Canada: Peace Maker or Powder Monkey?, Segment 1

1 week 4 days ago
Former CBC employee James M. Minifie once wrote a book entitled, "Canada: Peace Maker or Powder-Monkey." His conclusion was that Canada is a powder-monkey, in that the U.S. could launch acts of aggression against other states, and Canada would follow. And that has largely been the pattern. With the arrest of Meng, Canada has once again attached itself to the U.S. war-wagon. Members of the Green and New Democratic Parties need to ask their candidates if they are for peace, or for a New Cold War with China. Voting for Motion 56 was a serious gauntlet thrown down to challenge China. The word "genocide" is thrown around pretty carelessly these days, and Canadian politicians should take pause in their lazy accusations against China. Evidence of genocidal practices by Canada continue to mount day-by-day, while our MPs polish apples for the Americans. Nobody should continue down the road in any of these parties, unless they demonstrate that they are part of a world-wide desire for the peaceful resolution of differences between peoples and countries. There are many allies for this approach in the United Nations. ----------- Phil also comments on Haiti. How did the group of assassins of the Haitian President all know to go to the Taiwanese Embassy for refuge? Haiti is one of the few countries of the world to have diplomatic relations with Taiwan. The U.S. is on a reckless, adventurist path. Biden just unleashed the East Turkestan Islamic Movement to intervene on China by removing them from the terrorist list.

Taylor Report: Rwandan Refugees Were Pursued by the RPF and Western Powers Let It Happen, Segment 1

1 week 6 days ago
Professor Masako Yoneakawa, co-representative of Rita-Congo, researcher on refugee issues, peace and conflicts in the Great Lakes Region of Africa, has recently been named a recipient of the Victoire Ingabire Award at a ceremony in Brussels. In this interview with the Taylor Report, Professor Yonekawa explains how the basic story of what occurred in Rwanda 1994 has not been properly reported. To understand the events of 1994 it is necessary to know that Rwanda was invaded in 1990 from Uganda and the refugee crisis and the ensuing violence began at that point. The Professor proved important details about the failure of the UN and other international institutions to protect Rwandan refugees who had fled to Zaire/Congo.
