Sunday marks the 40 Anniversary of the Helter Skelter Charles Manson Murders. This Saturday on the program Jack Cashill on what have we learned from what went wrong with CA, and that event was a sound alarm but we have ignored the signs. Within the last five years Jack has written five books of non-fiction — First Strike, Ron Brown's Body, Hoodwinked: How Intellectual Hucksters Have Hijacked American Culture, Sucker Punch: The Left Hook that Dazed Ali and Killed King's Dream and his latest, What's the Matter with California. Three of them have cracked Amazon's top ten list.
Jim Verboon, Central Valley Farmer joins us. Citizen Activists's investigative reporting sheds new light on the corruption and abuse by politicians, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Congressman George Miller, and the radical environmentalist groups who are blaming and starving the Central Valley Farmers and communities. It's not the environment they're protecting. What is it really about?
"There is a lot of hypocrisy in the debate, especially from environmentalists who want to protect the sensitive Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta by limiting the pumping of agricultural water. Yet we don't hear a peep out of them when Sacramento dumps treated sewage into the Delta." Fresno Bee, August 2, 2009
Why are the fish in the Delta dying? Lower rainfall is not the cause of the "drought" in the Valley. Rainfall won't solve the waste pollution situation in the Delta—in fact it's the worst case scenario. It intoxicates more; it causes overflow, spills and leaks.
Why do extremist environmentalists allow cities around the Delta, and the politicians who represent them, to get away with this?
Where are the Latino Leaders and elected officials who claim to be a voice for and care about the Hispanic Community? Why do they ignore the massive food lines, and unemployment levels reaching 20 percent in general and 50% in the predominantly Hispanic communities in Central Valley? Businesses, community leaders and residents are helping with make shift food drives. The foodlines are so long now, kids with their families, have been turned away hungry. The Latinos and non latinos who live there don't want welfare! They want work! They want dignity! They want water!
The farmers and their way of life is being dried up, but the water they are robbed does not solve the problems caused by the high ammonia concentrations and other problems caused by the affluent and voter rich liberal communities along the Delta Estuary. It dilutes the toxins, and delays the inevitable.
Tune in to find out what is really killing the fish and what will solve the problem.
Water is life. Control it and you hold life in a death grip.

Jack Cashill on What's Wrong with CA & Jim Verboon, What's Killing the Fish in the Delta? Environmentalist's Hypocrisy: Sat, Aug 8, 2009
Botched Paramilitary Police Raids: An Epidemic of "Isolated Incidents"
"If a widespread pattern of [knock-and-announce] violations were shown . . . there would be reason for grave concern." —Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, in Hudson v. Michigan, June 15, 2006. An interactive map of botched SWAT and paramilitary police raids, released in conjunction with the Cato policy paper "Overkill: The Rise of Paramilitary Police Raids," by Radley Balko. What does this map mean? How to use this map View Original Map and Database
The proliferation of SWAT teams, police militarization, and the Drug War have given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of "no-knock" or "quick-knock" raids on suspected drug offenders. Because these raids are often conducted based on tips from notoriously unreliable confidential informants, police sometimes conduct SWAT-style raids on the wrong home, or on the homes of nonviolent, misdemeanor drug users. Such highly-volatile, overly confrontational tactics are bad enough when no one is hurt -- it's difficult to imagine the terror an innocent suspect or family faces when a SWAT team mistakenly breaks down their door in the middle of the night.
But even more disturbing are the number of times such "wrong door" raids unnecessarily lead to the injury or death of suspects, bystanders, and police officers. Defenders of SWAT teams and paramilitary tactics say such incidents are isolated and rare. The map above aims to refute that notion.
