BERKELEY CALLING celebrates the living tradition of Free Speech in Berkeley. Kevin Ryan uses his freedom of speech to tell the truth about 9/11 and other political betrayals of the American people and their Constitution. Kevin Ryan’s blog “Dig Within” and his new book, “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects” are highly recommended! The links to his works are posted at this BERKELEY CALLING Blog post. Be sure to read the comments section too! We have chosen a Vic Sadot music video to embed below titled “BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON” at Truth Troubadour YouTube Channel. The song was released on 9/11/11, the same day that this vicsadot.com website was launched. The song was on a 16 song CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which is available at CD Baby as one of three Vic Sadot CD releases there.
BLOWBACK OR BLOODY TREASON by Vic Sadot at Truth Troubadour Channel. This song was released on 9/11/11 on the 10th anniversary of the treasonous 9/11 false flag operation on a 16 song CD titled “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs”, which remains available in Vic Sadot’s CD Baby pages. It is Vic’s third release made by Discmakers and posted at CD Baby.
Blowback or Bloody Treason was created after reading Crossing the Rubicon by Michael Ruppert, the former LA narcotics detective who blew the whistle on CIA drug running and later became a 9/11 whistle-blower. “We need a great detective’s logic! Forensic facts & laws of physics! Not leaps of faith! Just steps to reason! Was it blowback or bloody treason?”
“STANDING ON THE SIDE OF LOVE” – Free Chelsea Manning! BERKELEY CALLING BLOG AT BLOGSPOT – Stand on the side of love, truth, justice, and peace!
COURAGE TO RESIST.ORG Plans a Speaking Tour for CHELSEA MANNING Attorney DAVID COOMBS, including an Oakland event at Humanist Hall, 390 – 27th Street, Oakland CA 94612 on Monday, Dec 9 at 6:30 pm! Activists call for unity on principles behind a heroic war-crimes whistle-blower like Bradley/Chelsea Manning, including Manning’s right to her identity.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple, Alice Walker, released a statement denouncing the 35 year sentence and praising Chelsea Manning’s humanism.
Singer-songwriter Vic Sadot updated his song titled “Courage To Resist” to refer to Manning in the feminine as requested. The song has been recorded and posted on SoundCloud as a full length listen and download with share options at the link that is provided in this BERKELEY CALLING Blog.
Berkeley Fellowship of UU’s SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMITTEE issued The “STANDING ON THE SIDE OF LOVE” Resolution calling for resolute support for Chelsea Manning for her identity rights in addition to a reinvigorated defense of her public service in upholding the laws of the land by her commendable effort to expose war crimes and cover-ups. The chat room logs that led to Manning’s arrest show that Private Manning was motivated to uphold the law by exposing war crimes and cover-ups because he/she feared that an uninformed citizenry would be ill-fit to govern a democracy. After years of extraordinarily cruel techniques on Manning, including sensory deprivations such as sleep or light, and being exposed to extremes in temperatures in a cell with no blankets or clothing, as well as long stretches in solitary confinement, the military tribunal gave the patriotic whistle-blower a 35 year prison sentence. Meanwhile, all the war criminals all go free!
