Dear Obama, How Does A 60% Increase In NYC Homelessness Constitute A Recovery?

Last week, we wrote a post entitled “Harvard Crushes The “Obama Recovery” Farce With 9 Simple Charts” in which we reviewed a report from Harvard Business School on the true health of the U.S. economy.  Given the title, it’s probably not terribly surprising that Harvard was somewhat “underwhelmed” with the Obama recovery after taking a multi-decade look at various economic …

Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 11.05.15

SHUTTING NUKES & STEALING OHIO’S CORPORATE POT REFERENDUM are what’s happening in today’s Solartopia Show.

TIM JUDSON and JESSICA AZULAY first join us to celebrate the announcement that the FitzGerald nuke in upstate New York will be closed. Entergy has said it will shut the ancient, dangerous reactor in October of 2016. Governor Andrew Cuomo has objected. But Cuomo is working to shut the reactors at INDIAN POINT near New York City so we’re not sure what to make of it. But Jessica give us the critical detail.

We then hear from my long-time co-conspirator BOB FITRAKIS about the CORPORATE MARIJUANA REFERENDUM allegedly defeated in Ohio. After watching elections being stolen here at least since 2004, we notice the usual symptoms of a rigged vote count. The Secretary of State, who allegedly administers a fair vote count, was a vehement opponent of the legalization of pot, and even accused its backers of fraud. There were breakdowns in Cincinnati in the polling apparatus. And obvious irregularities in Dayton and elsewhere. Polls showed Ohioans favoring the referendum by a significant margin but then defeating it in the balloting by 2:1, which makes no sense. Unless you’re really really stoned, which Ohio will again have to wait a while to do, at least legally.

Black Agenda Radio – 10.19.15

Welcome, to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective.

– A broad coalition of activist organizations is gearing up for three days of Rise Up October protests against police lawlessness, in New York City, this weekend. Organizers plan to bring in 100 family members of victims of police violence from around the country. Newark, New Jersey’s People’s Organization for Progress is part of the Rise Up October campaign. Chairman Larry Hamm says POP has been fighting police brutality in northern New Jersey for 35 years. POP sent several busloads to Washington, DC for the recent anniversary of the Million Man March.

– Cynthia McKinney, the former six-term congresswoman from Georgia and 2008 presidential candidate on the Green Party ticket, recently earned her PhD in Leadership and Change from Antioch University. For her dissertation, McKinney explored the challenges faced by the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. She’s now exploring ways to deploy more “non-traditional” Black candidates for Congress. But, that’s easier said than done.

– Mustapha Hefny was born in Egypt and immigrated to the United States more than three decades ago. The U.S. government granted him citizenship, but it refuses to acknowledge that he’s a Black man. Mr. Hefny is a Nubian, an ancient, unmistakably Black people who were part of the Egyptian Empire, sometimes ruling as Pharoahs. Nubians have always lived in what is now southern Egypt and northern Sudan. But the United States classifies Nubian immigrants from southern Egypt as white, and Nubians from northern Sudan as Black, under Directive 15 of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. So, for almost 30 years, Mostapha Hefny has been demanding that United States recognize him as a Black man.

– Dr. Gerald Horne, the professor of History and African American Studies at the University of Houston, has written yet another book. Horne is one of the most prolific and influential Black political thinkers of our time. His most recent work is titled “Race to Revolution: The U.S. and Cuba During the Slavery and Jim Crow.” His new book, on the Haitian Revolution, should be out this week. And after that, Dr. Horne plans on turning out books on Paul Robeson and Black majority rule in South Africa. He was recently interviewed on WFHB Community Radio, in Bloomington, Indiana.
