IKTV 402 - The Triannual News Roundup

See Detail
It has been over three years since the last show from Season Three.  Why wait another three years for the recession to be over, and then for Access Tucson to get its funding back?  Get your IKTV world news roundup right here.
People are waking up all around the planet, but here in the United States, when we wake up, we are told and therefore we think we are alone.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.  It takes 5% to have critical mass, and I'd venture to guess that about 15-20% of the US population is now becoming aware.  We are not alone, and we need to tell everyone.  What do we all need to know?  There is too much to write here, but watch and find out!
POST-SHOW UPDATE: During the show, I wondered aloud why Leon Panetta (US Secretary of Defense) while visiting Afghanistan, would demand that the US Marines, who were in attendance at a speech Panetta was making, would be required to leave their weapons behind, citing "safety concerns", particularly considering it is required that US Marines at all times will carry their service weapons with them.  I wondered why exactly some marine might want to kill Panetta, and I think I may have found the basis for his security concerns: a series of comments that Leon Panetta made to Jeff Sessions during an Armed Services Committee hearing where Panetta essentially told Sessions that the US military does not require the approval of Congress to make war, but rather requires "permission" from either the UN or NATO to do so.  Okay, who else is completely aghast at this?  Is it time to impeach Panetta yet?  I'm checking to see whether the UN charter/treaty approval by the US Senate effectively removed war powers from congress.
Also during the show, I cited several websites, for the articles on Project White House, the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), and the FDA (regarding Truth Transparency and Trust), and I cited the Wikipedia article on the Georgia Guidestones.  We kinda ran out of time, so I would also like to give you some of the other news items I was planning to cover.
First of all, I was right in the middle of saying how we can stop the rapid fluctuation of gasoline prices, and that is by ending speculation.  If we disallowed speculators from betting on future gas prices, or better yet, to prevent another Enron with California rolling blackouts, if we simply made any energy speculation illegal, we could keep prices stable, since the energy companies are not paying the speculative rates, but are charging them to consumers.  We may also want to prevent gas companies from charging significantly more than their production costs (no price gouging).
Another item was that in Arizona, there is a move underway to end all unions in the state, not unlike what was happening last year in Wisconsin and Ohio.  The EU has shown us that "austerity" measures and union busting actually hurts workers and prevents economic recovery, so if you are in Arizona, please look for petitions to sign either online or in person and call your state legislators.
In more news, Occupy Tucson is back in DeAnza park, at Speedway & Stone in addition to the parks downtown.  There is a group called Public Citizen which is gathering support for a constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United ruling allowing unlimited campaign contributions from corporations (see for more info).  I would like to see an amendment which removes personhood from all corporations and makes them adhere to a publicly defined and supported charter.
And finally, remember to keep the pressure up on Apple Computers and their CEO, Tim Cook.  Let us stop using and purchasing Apple products until Apple stops using unfair and deadly labor practices in China through Foxconn.  See you in a month!

“For I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. But this is all they have to fear from me”
  -- Thomas Jefferson


“"And what does it amount to?" said Satan, with his evil chuckle.  "Nothing at all.  You gain nothing; you always come out where you went in.  For a million years the race has gone on monotonously propagating itself and monotonously reperforming this dull nonsense--to what end?  No wisdom can guess!  Who gets a profit out of it?
"Nobody but a parcel of usurping little monarchs and nobilities who despise you; would feel defiled if you touched them; would shut the door in your face if you proposed to call; whom you slave for, fight for, die for, and are not ashamed of it, but proud; whose existence is a perpetual insult to you and you are afraid to resent it; who are mendicants supported by your alms, yet assume toward you the airs of benefactor toward beggar; who address you in the language of master to slave, and are answered in in the language of slave to master; who are worshiped by you with your mouth, while in your heart -- if you have one -- you despise yourselves for it.
"The first man was hypocrite and a coward, qualities which have not yet failed in his line; it is the foundation upon which all civilizations have been built.  Drink to their perpetuation!  Drink to their augmentation!  Drink to--" Then he saw by our faces how much we were hurt, and he cut his sentence short and stopped chuckling.”

  -- Samuel Langhorne Clemens, from "The Mysterious Stranger"


“I have lived perfectly well within this society; why cannot these oliogarchs and same misanthropes do as such then?  It is not because of any particular behavior for one sociological manner; rather it is solely caused by the lack of means and those resources to the great many which are foisted particularly by those which do not lack the same.  We have all faced the serpect sick and we know what it is, who it is and where it is, moreover, we all know what is better.  The question we need to ask these days is whether we are able to appreciate this and contribute.  Perhaps more pressing is that we must now, please keep track of each others' whereabouts: regardless of the presence of GITMO DELTA-4, we must assume that we all oblige to perform in our best.  While the shame of our collective nod to the perpetuation of subjugation and torture still happens, it needs to stop immediately, so this next becomes the most important.  The place in this world bears no more space for those ideologues of bigotry nor hatred.  The ancient thought that a betterment of one family or race or strain is somehow purity, that is now obviously not only quaint, but incorrect and patently obtuse and averse from reality.  The old lines are no longer to be sanely held.  We shall not now and ought not to ever more be alone.  I do not want to be this, only in, that only I am this; it is necessary this entire world needs to share that this immutable truth must be known, because, we all of everyone, we do collectively hold the highest and so care about our future, even when it is not our own.  If you will pick any one of the 3600 to stop, please pick ALL OF THEM and make EVERYONE THE CAUSE.”
