Black Agenda Report and CPR News: UNAC Brings Power to the People

The United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) conference was held in Richmond, Virginia last weekend. It was my third UNAC conference and each one has been amazing. More than 300 people attended the 2017 conference from 31 states and 9 foreign countries. I wrote about it in my Black Agenda Report column entitled, "UNAC Brings Power to the People." And as always I discussed it with Don DeBar on CPR News.

Panels were live streamed by Other Voices, Other Choices and the quality was excellent. Check out the videos on Youtube.

UNAC conference

I love the UNAC conferences. That is all.

UNAC Conference 2017 - 3rd Plenary: Domestic Issues

I started off a panel on domestic issues at the UNAC conference. I discussed human rights violations in the United States. My comments start at about 5:55.

UNAC Conference 2017 - Welcoming Remarks by UNAC Members & Allies

Moderating two nights in a row. First at the Big Apple Coffee Party event with Ray McMcGovern and Mark Crispin Miller on June 15th. Then the United National Antiwar Coalition (UNAC) on June 16th. It seemed crazy and I regretted making two important commitments back to back. But it all worked out and it is all important work.

The two day event was live streamed and I got it all started along with wonderful brothers and sisters in the struggle. We have many hours of footage so check it all out on youtube at your leisure.

Left Forum 2017: Jill Stein, Chis Hedges, Media Benjamin, Yours truly

I was on a great Left Forum panel with Jill Stein, Chris Hedges and Medea Benjamin on June 3, 2017.

Making News Faking News

I moderated a panel on this subject with Ray McGovern and Mark Crispin Miller on June 15, 2017. We discussed media/elite collusion, propaganda, stolen elections and why Obama was more effectively evil than Trump. We had an engaged audience at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church. Event was sponsored by the Big Apple Coffee Party.

Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Under the Democrats' Bus

Hillary Clinton spends $1 billion and ends up the loser but somehow the left is to blame. But of course the democratic party wants to end up on the right anyway so that twisted logic isn't surprising. That was the theme of my column in this week's Black Agenda Report and the topic of discussion with Don DeBar on CPR News.

Zero Squared Podcast: Comey's Dismissal and Trump's Incompetence

A few weeks ago I talked to Doug Lain on his Zero Squared podcast. I always laugh a lot during our conversations, even as I discuss serious matters. I guess Doug brings that out in me. Anyway we did have a fun but serious conversation. Enjoy.

Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Climate Agreement Smoke and Mirrors

Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 Paris climate agreement. Bad news but so is the agreement, which gives rich nations cover as they continue warming the globe. There is a lot less here than meets the eye as I said in my Black Agenda Report column and in conversation with Don DeBar on CPR News.

Left Forum 2017: Black Agenda Report panel

I love this video. Why? Because it starts before we were ready and you see the Black Agenda Report team acting very human. LOL. Plus good words from Nellie Bailey, Danny Haiphong, Glen Ford, Dahoud Andre, Ajamu Baraka, Bruce Dixon and poet Raymond Turner. I love our Left Forum panels.

Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Obama vs. Trump

Trump's foreign policy in Saudi Arabia is no different from Obama's. Yet the corporate media hope that you won't notice that or other elements of continuity. "Obama vs. Trump" is my latest Black Agenda Report column. As always I discussed it with Don DeBar on CPR News.

Black Agenda Report and CPR News: Endless Propaganda

We have surely fallen down into the rabbit hole. What was satire a few months ago now passes for serious news coverage. Such is the state of affairs as propaganda goes into overdrive. Endless Propaganda is the subject of my latest Black Agenda Report column and topic of my weekly conversation with Don DeBar.

"Just Be Left"

I had a great conversation with Eleanor Goldfield about a variety of issues. We concluded that there is a lot less confusion (debates about white allies, political correctness, democratic party deceptions, black misleadership class) when we adhere to left wing principles. So simple. A good use of 21 minutes of your time.
