IKTV 101 - The Uniform Commercial Code

Michael interviews local Tucsonan and UCC-1 Sovereign Ron Bracy about what the Uniform Commercial Code really is and how we got into this mess.  We also detail the steps which one must take to place a lien against their own legal fiction, thereby exercising the rule enshrined in the first clause of the UCC, to opt out, and becoming your own sovereign, taking "Secured Party" status under UCC-1, and operating under Common Law rather than Admiralty Law.

IKTV 102 - The Hegelian Dialectic

Michael examines the strategy espoused by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (from 1820s Germany) of "Thesis, Antithesis and Supersynthesis", and how it is being put into practice today and throughout the eons.  Covered are world incidents from Nero burning Rome to 9/11 and the US wars from the Spanish-American War (remember the Maine) through to the War on Drugs, including the Oklahoma City and WTC 1993 bombings, the Waco Branch Davidian Ranch firebombing and Ruby Ridge, the Gulf of Tonkin non-incident (cause of the Vietnam War), Hitler's burning of the Reichtag and more.  It is rather disturbing that nearly everything follows this same exact pattern.

IKTV 103 - The Report From Iron Mountain

Michael summarizes and analyzes the report about what would happen if world peace were ever to break out, which was directed to be made during the Kennedy administration and delivered to Lyndon Johnson, who "hit the roof" when he heard it was released.  Some people believe it to be genuine and that Johnson had ordered it suppressed, while some other people state that was not the case.  Regardless of whether the report is only a work of satire produced by the "editor", the illuminati nonetheless use the determinations contained in this malthusian report to this day, which calls for preferably, a state of permanent war for its benefits in political, economic and social organization, and barring that, the elimination of national sovereignty; maintaining a suitable level of poverty as an incetivizing factor under the guise of abolition of poverty; implementation of eugenics and population control; the establishment of a "blood sports" like a ritualized manhunt, creation of a real or manufactured external menace capable of affecting all of society, endless space research, socialized health care, free housing and college educations, deliberate environmental poisoning to create environmental protections, the Peace Corps, Job Corps and Americorps, some new euphemized form of slavery, new religious or other mythologies, and international police and world courts, and these controlling world powers use these same machinations to plan society for the coming one world government.

IKTV 104 - The Real X-Files

Michael discusses some real, known, past black operations and black projects of the United States government, the CIA and the NSA, the functional use of black operations in general and the problems involved in having too much government secrecy.  A few of those projects cited are the various stealth programs, DARPA mind control and remote viewing, and the CIA running crack cocaine into Los Angeles to secretly fund the Sandinistas in Nicaragua against our publicly supported Contras, to keep the war going.

IKTV 107 - No War In Iraq!

Michael explores the myriad of reasons for not going to war in Iraq, from the fact that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the September 11th attacks, even by the government's own accounts, and that Bush and Cheney, two Texas Oilmen, are obviously after resource aquisition (oil and political power) and price unstability in the Middle East.  It is mentioned that there was doubt as to the veracity of the government's story about what happened on 9/11 and that the government may have staged a false flag operation against itself so as to serve as the justification to invade Afghanistan and Iraq.

IKTV 201 - The Question Of The Middle East

Michael introduces the second season of IKTV, and discusses the history of the Middle East from the Roman and Ottoman empires, and what happened as a result.  Once the Ottoman empire was broken up after World War I, the British, French and other arab forces divided this area up in a conquest for corporate extraction of petroleum resources.  Michael talks about how Hitler had been instrumental in cooperating with arab leaders during WWII to settle Jewish people in the newly created Palestinian state.  Some callers help me figure out some new show topics.  Mr. Bill calls in for the first time, and predicts (accurately?) a dramatic change in power structures in the Middle East, and that a new leader affecting China and Russia will arise from Jordan.  Another caller mentions how the Saudi powers are distracting their people, who are larlely destitute, by constantly harping about the Israel-Palestine conflict, and how not all that many people, particularly in the area, agree with war in the area; also how Mexico is facing a similar problem in Oaxaca.  I mention a figure of 600,000 dead Iraqi civilians due to the putsch for privatization of oil markets, and that we should get out now.  Another caller states that the problem between Muslims and Jews has been happening since the time of Abraham (was that due to the use of a time machine?) and other future Jordanic apocalyptic figures.  Other topics discussed are masonry and illuminati, conspiracy facts, bohemian grove, Dealey Plaza, Zapruder, Michael Moore, Oswald and physics, Iraq and Iran and their supposed nukes, Israel and its real nukes, foreign aid, 9/11, Hegelian Dialectic and false flags, numerology and fives, William Rodriguez, box columns and nanothermate, call screeners, 7 WTC, FBI Pentagon tapes, mainstream media, bad war predictions for Iraq, democracy versus a republic, corporations and charters, and magnetic bullet shields.  Talk about getting off topic.

IKTV 202 - The Case for Impeachment

Michael discusses the history and origins of the process of impeachment, from England to pirate ships, and on to the US.  Michael reads the literal statute from the US Constitution and talks about what exactly "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" means, that these are regualr crimes and misdemeanors which are committed by persons who are elected ot placed into positions of high stature in government.  At the US Constitutional Convention, George Mason suggested that we ought to use "maladministration", but James Madison rejected it on the grounds that the term was too vague.  We talk about the impeachments of William Blounch (successful), Andrew Johnson (unsuccessful), John Pickering (successful), Samuel Chase (successful), John English (successful), Nixon (resigned) and Clinton (unsuccessful) before laying out why exactly Bush and Cheney should be impeached.  The reasons for impeaching our executive branch and many, but include violating the oath of office (lying under oath or perjury), personal enrichment, squandering the public money and trust, unconstitutional expansion of executive powers, Treason in the case of 9/11 MIHOP, and torture beyond the Geneva Conventions (by treaty), to name several.  Michael notes some reasons which a few impeach Bush websites often cite (none of which are impeachable) and comments that the falsely cited reasons may be holding up the entire process in the court of public opinion.  I mention that www.ImpeachForPeace.org has a letter which everyone could send in to convince their Congressional Representatives to start impeachment proceedings.  Callers are unruly to begin with, and they should have something better to do with their Saturday nights.  Cynthia Ann McKinney had tried to submit a motion to impeach but it was tabled and buried by Congress in the 2005-2007 session.  The current congress, aside from Dennis Kucinich and Russ Feingold, do not seem to want to put the nation through a "national trauma".  Michael recaps the talk given the previous Wednesday by William Rodriguez, the WTC janitor who was the last one out of the towers on 9/11, and talks about the physics of how the towers were built.  An eventual caller tries to act as an apologist for the curtailment of our liberties "because he has nothing to hide" and gets his ass handed to him in a retort by Michael.

IKTV 203 - Walls and Migration

I guess the CG and titles were not working this night since we had to improvise with a handwritten domain name on the front of the podium.  Joining me are some friends of the show who wished to remain anonymous, but you might recognize them if you are from Tucson.  In the first user-suggested show topic, Michael discusses the history of migration from the earliest humans, and that migration was commonplace until we became an agrarian (as opposed to a nomadic) society, and that walls were made originally to protect these newly agrarian societies from their nomadic contemporaries.  These first walls were most notably the Great Wall of China, Hadrian's Wall, walls surrounding cities, Maninot Line, Korean DMZ and the Berlin Wall.  In this show, we keep our discussion to walls between the US and Mexico and the Green Line Wall on the Israeli West Bank.  Michael thinks the walls are unnecessary and likely deadly.  Callers think we should build a wall along the Mexico border complete with snipers, and everyone disagrees.  There are a few good callers including Rick who joined with me and a few others on a walking tour of downtown Tucson where we attempted to be let into the Scottish Rite Cathedral.  Between Thing Three and all the prank callers compared to the leveler heads, this one manages to salvage some good moments out of the chaos.

IKTV 204 - 9/11 Revisited

The distinction between LIHOP and MIHOP ("Let It Happen On Purpose" and "Make It Happen On Purpose") is made clear as Michael discusses the evidence accumulated after six years of investigations by the US government and other organizations.  The 9/11 Commission report is completely bunk, and the US government is only about creating situations to perpetuate war for the benefit of the money lenders and for those who profit directly from the war economy.  Michael again talks about the Hegelian history of wars, starting with (remember) the Maine in Havana harbor to start the Spanish-American war, to the Mexican ambassador in WWI and obviously Pearl Harbor in WWII, to the Gulf of Tonkin, to the Mujahadeen, the first Iraq war, and everything since then.  If you don't have an enemy to fight, you have to manufacture one, with Problem - Solution - Reaction.  The question here is whether on and just prior to 9/11, we allowed some people to attack us or whether the government, with point-person involvement only, manged to set the whole thing up.  Considering the evidence of what happened that day to the statements of PNAC and other illuminati establishments, and who benefitted, and particularly insofar as those who gained the most were the ones who are most implicated in setting it up, it is especially anymore increasingly difficult that 9/11 was anything less than MIHOP.  No phone calls appear in the first 20 minutes, so I cannot remember what they were about, and therefore you are saved from the prankers.  It is truly unfortunate that the video cuts off here.

IKTV 205 - Media and Corporatism

Michael is wearing a chroma-key shirt on this episode to relate the transparency of Media when it comes to getting at the kernel of truth about getting to their real motivations.  You can't see what is behind them, but Michael is completely transparent.  Fuck, snooze, Fox News fucks news.  Is that not what they say on air already?  Since when was it not your job to report and ours to decide?  Oh wait, that's right, you are not really reporting so that you in your unfair and imbalanced way can actually influence what is thought by the mass of lemmings whatching Murdoch's channels.  This is not a complete indictment of Murdoch, et al., but a more indiscriminatory lashing of all the media outlets who report first, based wholly on government sponsored "press segments", all the while without doing any fact checking.  The verdict?  You can only trust Alex Jones, Amy Goodman and FAIR.  That's right, not even NPR.  Orwell Rolls In His Grave.  You must always listen critically, even to IKTV, and Alex, Amy and the good people at FAIR.

IKTV 206 - A Discussion of Non-valuation

In a non-valuation-based "Gift Society", otherwise known as General Reciprocity, there is no money, and everyone gets what they need, while everyone contributes their part, although, unlike in Marxism, not equally by their means to equally to their need.  Michael discusses the differences between Specific Reciprocity (what we use, and what barter and LETS is) and General Reciprocity, which is what the Semai have been using for the last 10,000 years or so, and they have been fine for it.  Now granted, the Semai are a people numbering not much more than 25,000, but to their credit, they are still doing it.  General Reciprocity was also practiced in the US Great Depression because no one had any currency.  GR is a system where everyone has resources and develops them, in coordination with others in the society, so that using Communication, Education and Transportation, everyone in the society gets what they need.  Michael talks about the potential downfalls of this system if it would be implemented worldwide today and how exactly we could overcome all of them, largely by creating a large degree of automation (along with the proportionate amount of "unemployment") and by simply ironically valuing everything, particularly "waste" and externalities, in whatever form.  If you do not have to work that many hours, every breath and shit you take has value.

IKTV 207 - The Election Special

There are a number of items on the ballot this November, but one of particular focus is Proposition 200, the Tucson Water Users' Bill of Rights.  Michael initially though this would be a good idea on the face of it, but after a discussion with guest John Kromko, Michael can take some real counterpoints, due to Kromko's habitual lack of substantiation.  This would repeal the $14-a-month garbage fee, prohibit Tucson Water from hooking up new water connections once the utility is delivering most of its Central Arizona Project allotment, and restrict the use of treated effluent.  Former state lawmaker John Kromko, the architect of Prop 200, argues that the initiative is the best initiative he could muster, and it will force the community to face the reality of our growing population, and save us from someday having treated effluent flowing from our taps.  We also discuss other initiatives which are more likely to win; some do.

IKTV 208 - A Church Without Walls

There is a church in Tucson which does not need a building.  Harkening back to the very early days of Christianity, my guest Chicago, who is the founder and Bishop of the Church Without Walls in Tucson describes his organization with a friend of the show, Angele.  We talk about the fact that God is known where three or more of us gather, and that this gathering does not require walls, dues, tithing, dogma, or any of the other irreputable things which nowadays accompany organized religion.  Chicago made me an (honorary?) Bishop following this show, so now I am not only a Reverend in the Universal Life Church.

Every December, just for presents, the group known as Jobs With Justice makes a list and checks it twice of all the naughty corporations which cannot seem to be nice.  We all get to vote on which is worst, and the "winner" gets the prize of "Grinch Of The Year".  Our local Tucson JwJ has been doing this same activity locally now for several years, and Michael higlights the egregious nature of all of the candidates.  The winner, ironically, will be selected at a convention which occurs immediately following my show, so the results will air on the next one, but I do not pick the winner, this time.  We take calls from disaffected workers.

Oh my, what now, again?  I have to do this again?  As if the first time was not lesson enough....  No Iran is not making nukes that it can deliver to us and even (mind you this was 2007) if they are trying, they are at least a decade off.  Iran was not part of 9/11 and Iran is a shiite country, which does not take kindly to the sunni al-quaida people.  Do we really need another war for oil?  This time the military of the proposed sovereign nation which we intend to unilaterally invade actually has a military force which can possibly compete without resorting to guerilla tactics.  Let's just not go there.  The JwJ winner from the last show is announced on air.

IKTV 211 - All I Want For Christmas Is Health Care

Michael outlines what a proper health care system would entail.  This includes a single payer, multi-tier ensemble, akin to Medicare, supported by taxation but by taking HMOs and insurers out of the loop, removing all for-profit health systems including Big Pharma, converting the payment and coding schedule to reincentivize doctors and other health care professionals to get paid not by procedure but by patient, and at that by keeping them well.  If any of that comes to pass, this christmas wish might come true.

IKTV 212 - Force Watch, CopWatch Born Anew

Paul and Michael talk about the origins of CopWatch from Berkeley and that his new organization, Force Watch, can become a new volunteer force to keep track in much more detail and in a much broader scale, the activities of keeping video tabs on police and other paramilitary domestic forces in operation in the US and other countries.  Paul discusses that during the Watts and Rodney King riots, CopWatch took plenty of video to notate the officers involved in documented police abuses and generally in commiting crimes ranging from assault to murder.  We attack the thin blue line of the Old Boys Club, and the subsequent abdication of rights by those harassed by the police.  The US has gotten only worse in the last decade, having now become a fascist police state, with the advent of the USA PATRIOT Act, the revocation of Posse Comintatus by the Military Commissions Act, the John Warner Defense Act, the Thoughtcrimes Prevention Bill (HR1955/S1959), and now further egregious bills like 2012 NDAA.  Paul talks about how no criminal charges had been filed against police, since the CopWatch videos were used to prevent the incarceration of those who were innocent but abused by police.  Paul talks about how Force Watch will be able to proactively deal with police filings to not only release the innocent, but to charge the police criminally with kidnapping and various abuses of power, including prosecutorial and judicial misconduct.  KBR (Halliburton) was contracted to construct 600 detention facilities, for supposedly the detention of people from mass migrations, wherever the source.  FM 3-19.13 is the Investigation Manual for police to investigate a crime, and it is not being adhered to.  Force Watch has drawn up a similar police-style reporting (Civil Oversight Enforcement) form to be used to compile all abuses into a singular database and to report these abuses directly to the judiciary, thereby bypassing both the police and DA.  I wonder how long the Republic of Lakotah will last.  There is way more and Paul talks really fast, so you should really watch this episode.  It is National Recovery Week after New Years Eve, so there was only one call.  It was real; whew!  There is a really bad profiling law in Arizona which allows cops to stop people for braking near a cop.  Try emailing forcewatch@gmail.com for current information on Force Watch.

IKTV 213 - Let's Get On TV!  The Presidential Preference Election Special

Jim Nintzel is the very first guest host of IKTV, as we all else are candidates for US President in 2008, either from the Democrat or Republican party.  Jim Nintzel describes Project White House and moderates the discussion between candidates.  We are: Libby "Doctress Neutopia" Hubbard, who is a futurist; Michael Oatman, your usual host (see MichaelOatman.wordpress.com); Chuck See, who is in favor of opening up the political system; Peter "Simon" Bollander, who is very conservative, has dealt with foreign governments, and has a ten-star program; and Charles Skelley, who wrote half of the book that Chrles Gilder already wrote.  Doctress Neutopia wants to take away the cars, See wants to reduce our reliance on them, Skelley wants to reform the government, Oatman wants to stop corporations from becoming the next Kings by ending corporate personhood and to nationalize the Federal Reserve, Skelley agrees, Bollander wants to create regional immediate response centers staffed by taking in the homeless vets and single moms according to his ten-star plan to serve those displaced and to create a national lottery, Neutopia wants to build new cities for the homeless and simultaneously eliminate property rights for the sake of the sacred Earth, Skelley disagrees with removing property rights but thinks that corporations taking eminent domain is not proper either, Michael does not think that an island full of warring astronauts and cavemen is worthy of debate (but gives the caveat that corporations always win), Bollander supports the astronauts, Skelley supports cavemen (having been in the industry), See thinks likewise, and Neutopia thinks that as long as there are no cave women it will be astronauts, and then we take calls.  This is more interesting, since we talk about a New World Order, newbie moderator Nintzel, the Rosemont mine, building new cities without mining, 1872 mining act, recycling rather than mining by sustainably mining landfills, landscaping old mines, other environmental protections, flying rocket cars, love and science being universal, robots taking over, non-valuation and changing working models, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology for medicine, marrying robots, gay marriage, marriage in general, the state should not be involved in deciding who can marry, civil rights, tax laws, Bollander might marry a robot but might not, hydrogen fuel cell cars, herding people into cities (is that Agenda 21, Neutopia?), and closing statements.

IKTV 214 - Theoretical Physics Rules The World (part 1)

In the first part of a two part Season Two Finale, we discuss the most up to date information known about what exactly the universe is, and what it all means.  Keith Dienes is a leading theoretical physicist from the University of Arizona, endorses community involvement in learning physics, and is a specialist in micro-level particle physics.  What is time?  What is space?  We are in a four dimensional, space-time world.  You have seen all the Discovery Channel® specials, but we have information on the expansion of the universe, dark energy and matter, the Kepler and Hubble Space Telescopes, ground based arrays, symmetry and the unification of forces, the Large Hadron Collider, the God Particle or the Higgs Boson, dark matter and dark energy, how the dimensions work, the number of dimensions, multiverses, quantum entanglement, locality and nonlocality, causality, entropy and the second law of thermodynamics, gravity, string theory and supertrings, music, hinduism, that people 4000 years ago practically understood this better than we do now, we finally have a call screener but it will not help to take calls which do not transfer from one phone set to the other, deforming space-time, the Earth actually does travel in a straight line (I knew it!), extra-dimensional echoes, using electromagnetism to understand gravity, (that this is all one big fractal and that in time we will not be able to travel to other galaxies due to the increasing acceleration, just as now we are not able to travel to multiverses, and that the beginning was just the last one,) the strong and weak anthropic principles, all this has already happened already and that we are just perceiving it in sequence, do we have beliefs, are we in a universe which is finite without boundary like the surface of the Earth, what exactly is the topology and dimensionality of the universe, shooting down missiles, and that string theory is not mathematical theology.

In the second of a two part season finale, we discuss the ramifications and manifestations of the effects of a non-local universe where consciousness is a property of matter, and where love is the energy of currency.  My guests Jack McDaniel (author) and Angele Harnesberry (poet, performer, student of vedicism and seeker of truth) and Michael (your host) are discussing the more esoteric side of that which Keith Dienes and Michael were discussing in the last episode.  We discuss what the reality is in the mind versus (in the last episode) the reality on the ground, including What the Bleep, quantum reality, what is energy, more superstrings, music and vibration, vibrational states of living, auras, expression as a manifestation of your being, telekenesis, consciousness as a property of matter, telepathy, thank you Art Bell, thought experiments on C2CAM, focused thought manifestations, more multiverses, time is a multidimensional string, conscious expansion, critical mass, mental dimensional transformation, I have a bad phone, life is God learning about God, Karma and the Law of Equal Returns, Pleideans and named gods, Vedic cultures, Chariots of Fire, Nephilim, giants, what really is Love when not that In Love, (God is Everything and Everything Else,) Love is a perfect reflection, creativity versus destruction, being in harmony, thoughtform crystalline experiments with water, meditation, how to smile as Circle K clerks and then get laid (kidding!), extending auras for creation, truth is based on perception and that perception is a mass lie, you just need to watch this part, start with yourself and work out, there is not a single way, not for ego, when you are finding, stop looking, more nonlocality and locality, extrasensory perception, clairvoyance, channeling, Edgar Cayce and Acachic Records, time could be a circle or a torus, what is dogma, science, or religion, we need an absolute language, and 2012 predictions.  Calls were in there somewhere.

IKTV 301 - Surveillance and Control v. Liberty and Security

Apparently I was as invisible to the lottery control staff at Access Tucson as I am to the Chroma Key.  This is the first of the 25 minute series, due to a "voting irregularity" (my show was first to enter but was not ever then entered) in the Access Tucson Lottery System for picking shows which then air on first-come, first-served allocated time slots (oh well, right? or was the content an issue? should I still have a bone to pick?).  This episode is about those who wish to trade their liberty for some temporary security, in regard to US surveillance networks and the lack of public pushback through the decades since Nixon.  Explored are the needs and the mechanisms for that control throughout history, and the resulting environments.  RealID® was apparently a big scary topic back then.  TALON, nanotech virus genome mapping and scanning by injection or inhalation, biometrics, card purchases, GPS, RFID, GMO foods, phone tapping, and thought-crime (think "Minority Report") still are.  Calls are about chroma keying, border walls, Japanese internments, more Hegelian stuff, DNA theft by US government, and the Belgium Seat Of Control.

IKTV 302 - Compelled Performance v. Common Law

Michael rehashes (from IKTV 101) the Uniform Commercial Code and its prospects to either United States citizenry or Secured Party sovereignty, a.k.a. Admiralty Law or Common Law, respectively, because, after all, this is right now becoming much more important.  I don't know whether I pulled a Homer by not having my notes in front of me, but the title is correct.  The last time I looked, I was not twelve miles out to shore.  The Magna Carta dictates Common Law, as does the US Constitution.  Legal Fictions and corporate strawmen abound!  Watch this if you want to know about: that Turkish-owned boats which killed a German, what happened to Dale and UCC-3, US Fascism and how to defeat Starbucks®, why Delaware has such awesome laws for incorporating, the collapsing economy, Frank Baum, why Obama is not a muslim, other distractions, why it is better to talk to your neighbors than to just Skype® them, the origins of Occupy Tucson (those being in Tucson's tent cities), that my guests are the precursors of "Preppers", how "Terrorism" is a Complete Ruse, one of my guests was actually in Yemen, how to speak carefully to another bretheren, why we should not have a Nanny State, why using UCC-3 is not worth the effort, we were talking about how to insure from Iran in those days, not very scary truths, that gold is still bullshit (sorry, Ron Paul) and that non-valuation (General Reciprocity) is the best way, that UCC and Black's Law have now (in 2008) become moot and you should start trusting your neighbors as much as when you are fighting in the trenches, how to fight corporate dominance (did I write that already?), the Inherent Goodness of Flags Emblazoned with Rattlesnakes, and the website UAFF.US.

Empire and Apocalypse is the topic, in the United States, and as compared to Rome.  From the Monroe Doctrine to the Bush Doctrine, we discuss imperialism within the US and its not so many positive and its rather innumerable negative repercussions.  We also discuss the creation of a fascist police state within the US as a result of these Hegelian policies, war as distractions from Empire, RealID® as a possible proverbial "Mark Of The Beast", radical political reformation within the US, Free Speech Zones, and what the actual debt policy means to you.  Calls from the audience are regarding the Antichrist, Iran, October Suprises, the Bush Cycle (cronyism), China's debts, and other policies.

IKTV 401 - Let's Get On TV 2012: Illegal Knowledge's Arizona Presidential Preference Election Debate Special

See Detail
In the first of four Arizona PPE debates, IKTV features nine dark horse candidates in a debate hosted by Dave Maass of San Diego CityBeat.  Hillarity ensues.  Aside from that, quite a few very good points were made, so you should watch this.  I mentioned, aside from what Newt Gingrich was proposing, that we already have a black ops space program and we could travel anywhere, in our antigravitic craft (the "Auroras" or black triangles), and get there faster than light.  It is really just up to the Kepler Space Telescope to find the earth-like planet(s) for us to visit.  Oh, yeah, I was running for US President again, and I placed first amongst the Project White House Green Party candidates.  I even won the vote in Apache County, Arizona outright!  Now, where are my delegates?  Seriously, does Apache County have Green Party delegates?
In later breaking news, the Arizona Legislature has begun to adopt legislation to prevent so called "dark horse" candidates from running for president, and most probably because of Sarah Gonzales' (beating Buddy Roemer) and my own (winning Apache County) placements with voters in this Presidential Preference Election.  There are far, far, far too many of us!
Guest Host: Dave Maass
Candidates (left to right): Michael Oatman (Green), Donald Benjamin (R), Simon Bollander (R), Cesar Cisneros (R), Kip Dean (R), Sarah Gonzales (R), Al "Dick" Perry (R), Charles Skelley (R) and Jim Terr (R)

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, www.MichaelOatman.net 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 www.citizen.org 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!

IKTV 403 - LETS and Time Banks: The Future of Local Currencies

See Detail
Michael would have liked to have been talking with people who are working with the local Occupy Tucson movement and with representatives from Sustainable Tucson, but for various reasons, neither group was able to send representatives to be on IKTV.  The national Occupy movement is, amongst other activities, working on a national bank or (hopefully) credit union, which I believe they are calling "Occupy The Global Financial System", which will serve to protect US Citizens from the Wall Street banking excesses and restore value to this new currency system.  Sustainable Tucson is currently operating a local Time Bank, the details of which can be found at their website.  In what is very possibly the least cringe-worthy solo episode he has ever produced, Michael also explores the possibilities we all will face if there is a future, much larger, economic crash, and what our best large scale options will be in that event as a society no longer dependent on scarce to unavailable federally backed currency, whether General Reciprocity might be a better fit for this situation, and what the real plans are which have been put in place by the globalist banksters.  The true solution?  Make The Banksters IRRELEVANT!  However, and seemingly in response to this notion, the good people at InfoWars.com have just notified IKTV that the US federal government has just authorized the purchase of 450 million rounds of hollow point ammunition, which due to the Geneva conventions, can only be used within the US.  That is slightly more than one for each of us, and at two rounds per second, it would take roughly seven years to shoot them all, for those of you doing the math.  Very disturbing news indeed.
Also, in unrelated news, I would like to congratulate the new nation of South Sudan for backing down over an ownership dispute with (north) Sudan over the oil fields on their shared and disputed border.  It seems that cooler heads can actually prevail in order to prevent further civil atrocities in those countries.  IKTV does now officially like South Sudan (although perhaps not enough to move there), and encourages all nations of Earth to recognize this new nation.

We will have a non-debate style discussion amongst candidates who are running for the Arizona State Legislature as Democrats.  Why just Democrats?  Because all their Republican counterparts belong in an insane asylum.  I can guarantee to you that the first question to the candidates will be whether and then how we can possibly call for Bipartisan Fiscal Sanity and have the AZ Legislature demand that the City of Tucson restore funding for Access Tucson.

IKTV 405 - The Future Of Community Media In Tucson

See Detail
PEG had three of its six channels removed from the air by COX Communications in direct contravention to the Tucson Cooperative Cable Corporation Charter, Channel 12 had to move from the APM facility at UA to the TCCC basement, Access Tucson has had its funding stolen by the city, had its days of operation cut from seven to two, and had a staffing reduction of ten plus to three.  Now in July, Access Tucson's channels are being cut down to just one, due to a law paseed by the AZ Legislature.  What will it take to restore the funding and the proper role of community television and other media outlets to Tucson?  New Tucson mayor Jonathan Rothschild (he's a Rothschild) could obviously care less, since even his secretary failed to return my calls and emails about appearing on this show, and I'm sure he would be much happier if community broadcasting did not exist at all, anywhere. 
All six Tucson City Council members, to their credit, did return my calls eventually, although all six claimed to have "prior engagements", as quite inexplicably, did any member of LPFM in Tucson. 
Personally, I find it baffling that at least the TCC Dems and the LPFM guys would not want to find the time to make an appearance, although it just shows their priorities. 
In the Season Four finale, we will discuss what all of us can do to get our voices heard, whether on television, KXCI, APM/NPR, low power FM, on the InterTubes (IndyMedia), in city council, and online.

Second news article: Reactions to Romney's distain for 47% of America, How do all those tax thingies work, anyway and Life Under RomneyCare (from Esquire).  And speaking of Governors who lose, Gov. Scott Walker's anti-labor law was just overturned last week.  Turns out that you actually cannot create a crisis to blame the victims so you can make privatized corporate welfare profits, Governors.

Main Topic, GMO Foods:
Please read my article about GMOs on which this show is based.

New article about the tumors and early death created by GMOs in rats.

Please Vote!!  Election Day is Tuesday 5 November 2013!
You must have registered to vote on or before 7 October 2013 to be eligible to vote in the 5 November 2013 General Election.  Early ballots were sent out Thursday 17 October and must be received (not postmarked) by 7PM on the 5th of November, either by mail or at a polling place.

Michael talks politics with now only some one of the Tucson City Council candidates running for election in 2013 for Tucson Wards 3, 5 and 6, since all the Democrats and Ben have cancelled.  Now, I wouldn't say "Vote Republican" this time (or ever), although doing so would not shift the balance of the council (currently all Democrat).  We will also discuss any upcoming ballot initiatives.  Pundits and former legislators Daniel Patterson and John Kromko join the conversation.

Tell The FCC That We Insist On Net Neutrality!!  Help Save The Internet!!  Please Sign These Petitions!!  We Have Until 10 September 2014!!
Net Neutrality is a principle that says that the people who use the internet, not large corporations, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), should be in control.  All of these petitions do the same thing: they order the FCC to reclassify broadband ISPs so as to re-regulate broadband Internet providers and force them to operate inside of the legal framework that has traditionally applied to companies that offer two-way communication services.  This ensures that ISPs can't speed up, slow down, or block web content based on its political affilitaion, content, source, ownership, destination, or any other number of factors.  If ISPs can slow down certain sections of the internet, then they can also charge YOU more if YOU want to have those services given to you at normal speeds.  It's like extortion for the internet without Net Neutrality.  Please sign the petitions below to prevent this corporate-controlled dystopia from becoming reality, before it's too late!

In the light of multiple instances of massively freakier weather, Michael takes a few pages from the script of The Day After Tomorrow, (or more accurately, The Coming Global Superstorm), ten years after, to illuminate what is going on with our weather (HINT: Ideal Gas Law is PV=nrT).  Since it is currently Spring Break at the U of A, we were unable to get an Atmospheric Scientist, so Michael will be doing his best to explain Atmospheric Thermodynamics.  Our panelists contribute great insight into how we got into this mess, what the effects look like and what we can do about it.  After all, in geologic time, what we are doing is happening in the millisecond after the last.

IKTV Voters Guide - REMEMBER TO VOTE ON OR BEFORE TUESDAY 4 NOVEMBER 2014!

First, select all democrats on side one of the ballot.  You may vote for two candidates in your AZ Legislative District races, and you may vote for two members for the TUSD board.  I personally vote NO to not retain any judge.  Side two of the ballot contains the 2014 ballot initiatives.  Sadly, the SAFER initiative petitioners did not gather enough signatures to put full marijuana legalization on the 2014 ballot, so MPP will do it in 2016.

Commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) constitutes a form of coercion and violence against children and amounts to forced labour and a contemporary form of slavery.

CSEC includes the prostitution of children, child pornography, child sex tourism and other forms of transactional sex where a child engages in sexual activities to have key needs fulfilled, such as food, shelter or access to education.  It includes forms of transactional sex where the sexual abuse of children is not stopped or reported by household members, due to benefits derived by the household from the perpetrator.  CSEC also potentially includes arranged marriages involving children under the age of 18 years, where the child has not freely consented to marriage and where the child is sexually abused.

Prostitution of children under the age of 18 years, child pornography and the (often related) sale and trafficking of children are often considered to be crimes of violence against children.  They are considered to be forms of economic exploitation akin to forced labour or slavery.  Such children often suffer irreparable damage to their physical and mental health.  They face early pregnancy and risk sexually transmitted diseases, particularly AIDS.  They are often inadequately protected by the law and may be treated as criminals.

Child trafficking and CSEC sometimes overlap.  On the one hand, children who are trafficked are often trafficked for the purposes of CSEC.  However, not all trafficked children are trafficked for these purposes.  Further, even if some of the children trafficked for other forms of work are subsequently sexually abused at work, this does not necessarily constitute CSEC.  On the other hand, according to the U.S.  Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, the definition of Severe Forms of Trafficking in Persons includes any commercial sex act performed by a person under the age of 18.  This means that any minor who is commercially sexually exploited is defined as a trafficking victim, whether or not movement has taken place.  CSEC is also part of, but distinct from, child abuse, or even child sexual abuse.  Child rape, for example, will not usually constitute CSEC.  Neither will domestic violence.

Michael discusses the disturbing issue of child sexual slavery within the US with our panel.  Please watch the music videos which we are using for our intro and outtro segments.

2015 Tucson Peace Fair Schedule

Saturday February 28th 2015, 11 AM to 4 PM

Tucson's 33rd annual Peace Fair & Music Festival is coming to Reid Park Saturday, February 28, 2015, from 11 am to 4 pm.

It's free and open to everyone.

The Tucson Peace Center is an umbrella organization for 150 of Tucson's local peace, social justice, environmental, and labor groups.

Regular Peace Fair participants include the Women's International League of Peace and Justice (WILPF, celebrating their 100th anniversary this year), Move to Amend, Veterans for Peace, the American Civil Liberties Union, AZ4NORML, Jobs With Justice, Nuclear Resister, Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Watershed Management Group among many others.

Newly formed organizations like $15 Now, Arizonans for Gun Safety, Tucson United for Climate Action (TUCAN), and Friends of Rosa will also be on hand.

Learn what is happening in our community while you catch up with old friends and make new ones.  There are free activities for the kids like a labyrinth, face-painting, and a whimsy parade.  The Culture of Peace Alliance will offer hands-on activities to entertain young fair-goers.

This year's theme is challenging poverty.  Growing income inequality and stagnating working-class wages place many friends and neighbors in precarious financial positions.  As a community, we seek answers to the structural problems that exacerbate poverty.  We also offer an opportunity to enrich our lives through meaningful engagement and re-envisioning what constitutes true wealth on a planet undergoing massive ecological changes.

A raffle will award lucky winners dozens of prizes donated by local businesses, with names and gifts announced throughout the day.

Musical guests include Baba Marimba, Tucson's Raging Grannies, One Heart Beat, Planet Jam, Charlie King, and other local performers.

A new mobile public address system will be on display; Tucson Peace Center's member groups may now borrow it to amplify their message at rallies, parades, & events.

Don't forget to mark your calendars: Peace Fair, Saturday, February 28th, 11am-4pm, at the Reid Park Bandshell.  See you there!

Visit www.TucsonPeaceCalendar.org for more information.

          UNDER THE RADAR, AS YOU, AS I, DO YOU SEE, THEN?

“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

            UNDER THE RADAR, AS YOU, AS I, WILL YOU GAIN, THEN?

“"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"

            UNDER THE RADAR, AS YOU, AS I, WILL YOU DO, NOW?

“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.”
  -- Michael Oatman  --  16 January 2017
