The mess the US made of Ukraine and relations with Russia, with Robert Parry.
On today’s program host Kathryn Davis offers inspiration toward mindfulness as a way of living through both the good and the times of life. We feature the work of Pema Chodron an American born Buddhist nun and teacher. The first segment is called Our Potential is Limitless, from a live program 4 Marks of Existence recorded at the Omega Institute. …
The host Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, Lisa Stewart and Lamont Banks of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it’s not perfect. Sam, Cliff, Lisa and Lamont will highlight ongoing struggles against “the system” to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.

Austerity Rendering Detroit Unfit for Habitation
A serious fire raged out control due to chronic low water pressure in Detroit, despite the majority Black city’s location in one of the world’s major fresh water regions. “The whole process of so-called rebuilding of Detroit has not been clearly thought out,” said Abayomi Azikiwe, veteran activist and editor of the Pan African News Wire. “How can you rebuild a city when you don’t have fundamental infrastructure, such as fire services, public safety, education, emergency services, simple things like being able to go to a supermarket?” The economic elite are “doing everything possible to drive out the African American population,” he said, but poor infrastructure discourages white resettlement. “What you have is the anarchy of capitalism.”
Big Business Tries to Roll Back Socialist Alternative in Seattle
Corporate contributions are pouring into Seattle Urban League chief Pamela Banks’ campaign to unseat Kshama Sawant, the Socialist Alternative councilwoman who championed the city’s $15 an hour minimum wage law. “It’s not so much about my opponent’s qualities,” said Sawant, “It’s because corporations, billionaires, the people who have an incentive to uphold the status quo, recognize that if we win re-election this year, then it really confirms to working people in Seattle and everywhere that we can prevail against the full might of big business and the political establishment.”
Mumia: “Flags and Rags”
The heritage of the Confederate battle flag is “one of terror and violence in support of a system of organized theft of Black labor, in the name of white supremacy and Black subjugation,” said Mumia Abu Jamal, the nation’s best known political prisoner, in a report for Prison Radio. “Dylan ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Roof knew, instinctively, what the flag stood for.”
Justices OK Painful Death Drug
The U.S. Supreme Court ended its term by allowing states to continue lethal injections with a cocktail that can cause horrific pain for condemned persons. “Prisoners remain less than human” in the High Court’s eyes, said Kenneth A. Hartman, a writer and prison activist serving life in California. “How else can a decision that allows for deliberate torture be explained?”
Fear of Blacks Triggered 1776 War of Independence
White settlers turned against the their mother country partly in fear that the British Crown would put guns in the hands of Blacks, according to Dr. Gerald Horne, chairman of history and African American Studies at the University of Houston and author of more than 30 books, including The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the United States of America. In 1775, the British colonial governor of Virginia established an “Ethiopian Regiment” to counter rebellious white settlers. “One of the factors that caused formerly patriotic British subjects to revolt against British rule was this ‘Black scare’ that, I argue, led to the formation of the United States of America,” said Dr. Horne, in a lecture at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Megan Kimble is a food writer living in Tucson, Arizona, where she works as the managing editor of Edible Baja Arizona, a local-foods magazine serving Tucson and the borderlands. She is a regular contributor to the Los Angeles Times and serves on the leadership council of the Pima County Food Alliance. She earned her MFA from the University of Arizona and works with the university’s Southwest Center to promote food access and justice.
Her new book, Unprocessed, is a memoir of her experience of going an entire year without eating processed foods. In January of 2012, Megan Kimble decided she wanted to know where her food came from, how it was made, and what it did to her body: so she took a moratorium of eating processed foods, and started exploring the world of REAL food, by milling her own wheat, extracting salt from the sea, trying her hand in milking a goat, and she even slaughtered a sheep! However, Megan also discovered that Processed Foods went far deeper than just snacks and soda, it was the entire American food system of cheap foods, the globalization of produce and the raising of animals in factory farms, and of course, it was also tied to one’s socio economic reality, to gender, politics and money.
Today in health and healing, getting your dream hair by eating special foods, exposure to formaldehyde linked to ALS, higher vitamin C and lower risk of cancer, how living in nature is great for your health. Then, young broke and hustlin’ – a short piece on how today’s young generation is coping with this economy. The Koch Brothers could do a lot of good, but they choose not to. And a whole lot more!
