Jordan Chariton of the The Young Turks reporting On #NoDAPL Permit Denial.

Who needs mainstream media robot reporters when there’s a passionate Young Turk on the job?

Encore:

Jordan goes undercover in Bismark, ND.

Just for fun: Jordan’s Ranting Vent on the New York Times’ FAIL reporting on Standing Rock– Heads up, foul language in profusion. Hey, it’s a RANT! It’s to be expected. If you want nice and polite tune into the PBS News Hour.

Media, Music and Movies ~ For Uranium Mining On Navajo Land, Plus Snow From Sewage

Yes, it’s Monday. It’s St. Patrick’s Day. It’s national beer drinking day for a lot of folks.

But it’s also another day in the ongoing fight against uranium mining and its consequences everywhere from the past to the present.

On March 14, 2014 independent journalist Amy Goodman reported from Flagstaff, Arizona about the ongoing environmental and health issues connected with uranium mining and its long-term consequences for the Dine ~ Navajo people.  The main portion of her video report is posted here but there is a great deal more information and related coverage on Democracy Now!’s site.  Part of the Democracy Now! broadcast discussed the use of music and film by to raise awareness and share information regarding issues.  To supplement DN!’s coverage I’ve included two videos featuring Klee Benally’s music and an informative video about Outta Your Backpack Media which teaches Indigenous people how to make and use movies to address the need for media justice and coverage in their communities.  There’s a trailer for the film The Return of Navajo Boy which is referenced in the news piece.  The film’s website –> http://navajoboy.com/.  Democracy Now!’s page for the story also includes links to information and related stories.

Attention FOX News! Gov. Walker killed 800 million dollars for Wisconsin light rail for Koch oil??? Dig FOX! Dig! The information gold is everywhere for your finding.

Is this a communist public workers’ plot? Sorry FOX News, it’s not. Wisconsin Rep. Gov. Scott Walker killed  800 million dollars in federal funding for high speed light rail in order to focus on “roads.”  Yes, the Governor of Wisconsin declined $ 800 MILLION for a public transportation project in Wisconsin for “roads.” What uses roads? Cars. What do cars use for fuel? Gasoline. Who is heavily invested in oil? Koch Industries.  Mystery solved! Republican Governor Scott Walker declined $800 MILLION of federal funds in order to provide his Koch backers with more “oil” and other energy opportunities.  What a way to connect the dots.

Oh and there was a SURPLUS in the Wisconsin budget UNTIL Walker arrived and pushed through $140 Million in NEW spending for special interest groups. This wiped out the 2009-2011 surplus.  Huh, I wonder where Koch Industries lands in that package.

Here’s another “dot”–the Budget Repair Bill allows for UNcontested bids for purchase of WI public energy works. Who want this juicy energy cash hog? Koch Industries of course. Why else open a brand spanking new office for an army of Koch Lobbyists in Madison?

So did the public workers’ unions create a budget issue in Wisconsin? No–REPUBLICAN Gov. Scott Walker created it all by himself–and apparently he did it for the right wing tea party playing Koch brothers–David and Charles. Still looking forward to a fun time in California with David Koch, Dictator Walker?

Who will save the serfs? Not Walker and certainly not Koch Industries. Hey, Citgo, you amigos down in Venezeuala got some heating fuel for Cheeseheads? Cause I think they’re gonna need it if Wisconsin becomes WisKochLand. Hola Chavez, want to trade some heating oil for cheese?  Go for the Munster…….

Oh folks this is OLD news, it’s everywhere to be found on the web. Connect the dots yourself.
