Guest: Dr. James F. Tracy

Update on analysis of Sandy Hook Elementary School “shooting” in Newtown, CT with compelling new evidence from independent researchers, including that of NA School Safety Consultant, Wolfgang Halbig. Many anomalies cited: authorities gunsandbutterraze school and home of Adam Lanza’s mother; no date stamp on police dashcam video; evidence of a Live Shooter Drill taking place; large fast food orders arriving which can only happen during a Homeland Security and FEMA Capstone Exercise; same child killed at Sandy Hook who is two years later killed at school in Pakistan; agendas for gun control and childhood mental health protocols furthered.

Berkeley Barb Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Article by Vic Sadot at Berkeley Calling Blog: Many veterans of Berkeley Barb activist journalism in the past 50 years will be gathering from far and wide for a reunion with their movement friends. If you don’t know the Berkeley Barb history, you can visit the About Berkeley Barb section of the website. Meanwhile here is an excerpt, and below you can check out the schedule over several days Aug 8 – 14. Country Joe McDonald invited me to do a couple songs at the private event at The Freight & Salvage on August 12 at “A 50 Year Barb celebration party with live music featuring Country Joe McDonald, Jef Jaisun, Vic Sadot, Sal Valentino & friends, plus radio pioneer Scoop Nisker and comedy celebrating free speech and the alternative press, is scheduled at the Freight & Salvage at 2020 Addison St. in Berkeley”.  Read more at the Barb or Freight sites! On Saturday, August 15 Country Joe’s idea of doing an all day “BERKELEY PROTEST FESTIVAL” will swing into action with an Event Team who will coordinate over 50 performers of songs, poems, and comedy at the Historic Fellowship Hall of the BFUU in Berkeley.
