MLK: A Snap Shot in Time

GLEN FORD—The myth of the “Black Church” as the central player in the huge social transformations of the 1960s begins with the false testimonials that poured from pulpits and Black radio microphones on that Sunday, April 7th, 1968 — and have soiled the historical record ever since. Accommodation with Power — not transformation or liberation — was the watchword of the Black church, then as now.

Daring to go beyond Western propaganda on the Great Leap Forward’s famine

RAMIN MAZAHERI—Hunger should be treated in the same way as a natural disaster; Iran’s biggest curse is earthquakes and, were it not for vast anti-Iran sentiment, many more would learn about our similarly amazing, socialist-inspired techniques for dealing with the aftermaths of earthquakes. The Chinese Communist Party has seemingly done the impossible – ended the scourge of famine in China.

If Israel Were Not an Ally, US Would Be Working to Overthrow its Government (with bonus Video)

WHITNEY WEBB—Interestingly, no calls for inquiry were made by EU governments over the recent poisoning of a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in the U.K. Instead of waiting for an investigation, several countries expelled Russian diplomats in retaliation for the act, despite doubts surrounding Russia’s culpability. Those European politicians who did call for an inquiry were ridiculed in the press as “puppets” of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Meanwhile, when over a thousand unarmed Palestinians are shot, the EU needs an investigation to prove that Israel was responsible, despite IDF admissions that it knew where “every bullet landed.”

Freedom Rider: Vladimir Putin and War Propaganda

MARGARET KIMBERLEY—The creation of an all purpose villain is meant to cover up Democratic Party electoral failures, end the Trump presidency, and of course make the case for the American exceptionalism and interventions. Regime change, proxy wars, and imperial conquest are all very much a part of the anti-Putin hysteria. But the Russophobes are playing a very dangerous game. The story of the poisoned man does not take place in a vacuum. While the public are distracted by a tall tale of Putin killing any Russian who ever died outside of that country the very dangerous Syrian war continues. Lies about the Russian government should be taken very seriously. They are war propaganda and they are meant to get public support for military action against Russia and its allies.

Why are most people in China still atheist, although the government has legalized religion and social reform. They tend to revive atheism instead and making it worse.

KEVIN DOLGIN—These three religions were no more contradictory in the minds of the Chinese over the millennia than three different philosophies might be and most people kind of mingle them (certainly the first two). Indeed, once again, they are more philosophies than religions in many respects. You don’t go to church, you don’t even really pray (although Taoism and Buddhism are big on meditation), there typically is no concept of a creator god, and none of them are really big on proselytising.

AROUND THE WORLD WITH PETER KOENIG ON CHINA RISING RADIO SINOLAND

JEFF J. BROWN—t was a real treat to have Peter Koenig on the show today. He has been all over the world and seen how the West inflicts its genocidal destruction on billions of victims in the developing world. A lifelong expert at the World Bank, he explained how 75% of its work is dedicated to Western, capitalist plunder of poor peoples’ wealth and exploitation of their natural and human resources (asset stripping at 10 cents on the dollar, while slaving away in Western sweatshops for 25 cents an hour). Nonetheless, he has managed to do good deeds by staying in the 25% that really tries to help those in need.
