Friday afternoon, July 2, 2015, a coalition of attorneys held a press conference in Los Angeles to announce continued and new litigation to combat the drug war and particularly the continued of marijuana in our society. Police agencies, Federal, State and Local and Children and Family Service Agencies continue to destroy lives because of the use of a plant. That ANY use of has medicinal qualities. Matthew Pappas is one the attorneys who put together this coalition fighting these laws and practices.

Matthew will also spoke about the other attorneys who were part of the coalition at this Press Conference and some of the Organizations and activists he is working with.

“Code Pink’s Alli McCracken Stops By to Chat” on “I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee”

Alli McCrackenCODEPINK National Coordinator Alli McCracken stops by to speak about the issues she is passionate about. Drone Warfare, Iraq, Iran, Gaza, Justice and the Military Industrial Complex. Based in the Washington D.C. office, Allie holds degrees in Political Science and Religious Studies.

CODEPINK is a women-led grassroots organization working to end U.S. wars and militarism, support peace and human rights initiatives, and redirect our tax dollars into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming programs.

CODEPINK is not exclusively women — we invite men to join us — -but we are particularly eager to see mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters, female workers, students, teachers, healers, artists, writers, singers, poets and all outraged woman rise up and oppose the global militarism.

Medea Benjamin, Jodie Evans, Diane Wilson, Starhawk and about 100 other women kicked off CODEPINK on November 17, 2002. We set up for a 4-month all-day vigil in front of the White House during the cold of winter.

The vigil inspired people from all walks of life, and from all over the country, to stand for peace. Many organizations joined us, including Global Exchange, Greenpeace, WILPF, WAND, Public Citizen, NOW, Women for Women International and Neighbors for Peace and Justice. The vigil culminated on March 8, International Women’s Day, when we celebrated women as global peacemakers with a week of activities, rallies and a march to encircle the White House in pink.

Over 10,000 people participated, and a group of 25 women, including Alice Walker, Maxine Hong Kingston, Susan Griffin, Starhawk, Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin, were arrested for taking our peaceful protest right up to the White House gate.

CODEPINK thus emerged out of a deep desire by a group of American women to stop the United States from invading Iraq. The name CODEPINK plays on the former Bush Administration’s color-coded homeland security alerts — yellow, orange, red — that signaled terrorist threats. While Bush’s color-coded alerts were based on fear and were used to justify violence, the CODEPINK alert is a feisty call for people to “wage peace.”Code Pink

Since then CODEPINK has become a worldwide network of women and men committed to working for peace and social justice. We have become famous for confronting the warmongers, whether in the halls and hearing rooms of Congress, the national conventions of both the Republicans and Democrats, George Bush’s fundraisers, the publicity tours of Karl Rove, Condi Rice, Donald Rumsfeld and others, and Nancy Pelosi’s house.

“The Disrespect of Poland” on “I Take Liberty With My Coffee”

8:30 Am Sunday Morning. An important discussion. Please join us. Just click on the broadcast below or go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/coffeepartyusa/2015/06/21/the-disrespect-of-poland-on-i-take-liberty-with-my-coffee

Recently an article was published by the Patriot Ledger, a media publication based in Quincy, MA. The article was a discussion about a Holocaust survivor. We always like to read stories about anyone who survived that horror. We all know about the Holocaust. Or do we? In my view, we must not know about it since the media continues to attribute some parts of the Holocaust against the people and, the country of Poland. A people, and a nation, who deserve as much respect as any other on this earth, as an example of fighting for freedom while faced with the greatest odds against them. What has happened to our society where we refuse to acknowledge truth and facts and, instead decide to listen to our favorite TV personality no matter what they say? Why does the media refuse to make corrections to stories they report when they are shown to be factually incorrect? Is someone pulling strings? Is there and agenda? There must be. Have you ever heard of the Polish Underground or the heroes who were members of that movement and unit? Have you ever heard of the Warsaw uprising? Do you know that Hitler ordered the German Army to annihilate the people of Poland off the face of the earth and the only reason why that failed was due the fight waged by the people, not any army, but the people of Poland? A battle the people of Poland waged alone. Betrayed by the allies to Stalin and Communism one side and fighting against German tanks on the other. In 2015 it is Poland that remains. Three million Polish Jews were killed by Germany. THREE MILLION POLISH CATHOLICS WERE ALSO KILLED. It was in GERMAN OCCUPIED POLAND that this happened. This morning we discuss this very important issue with Stefan Komar. The son of Orlicz, the decorated member of the Polish Underground. A man who saved many lives including Jews.

“Standing Up For Shona Banda” with Attorney Sarah Swain

In March, Child Protective Service workers took Shona Banda’s 11-year-old son from her home, saying her use of medical marijuana put the child in danger. Last Friday Shona was charged Sarah Swain 2with five felony counts of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, manufacturing Tetrahydrocannabinol, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of child endangerment. Banda faces a maximum of 30 years in prison. Attorney Sarah Swain joins me again to discuss the charges and the burden of proof the State must meet. Sarah is a serious advocate who has always questioned the fairness of our justice system. She saw her father, a war hero, disabled during the Vietnam War, along with many other veterans, get taken advantage of by the U.S. government and the Veteran’s Administration, twisting the system to prevent him from getting representation for his disability benefits, which were his rights. Her father taught her, as he struggled against a seemingly unbeatable opponent, to defy all odds to achieve the results you believe in. He eventually beat the system by representing himself and won. This invaluable lesson and a tough childhood fueled her passion for seeking justice. Shona is represented well. So grab a cup of coffee and join us.

“Education Destruction, A Continuing Saga” on “I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee”

Check Out Politics Podcasts at Blog Talk Radio with Coffee Party USA on BlogTalkRadio

Our Public Education is under relentless attack. In Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker slashed the education budget in favor of privatization, standardized testing, and a basketball stadium. In New York, the Board of Regents appointed MaryEllen Elia as its Education Commissioner. Elia, who was ran out of Florida, has long ties to Common Core and Standardized Testing. The recent Opt-Out movement that was so large in New York essentially had its face slapped. Georgia and Wisconsin both are advocating for a workforce instead of education and a growing movement to certify teachers without requiring the formal education. The two major political parties are behaving essentially the same. Marla KilfoyleWe are joined again by Marla Kilfoyle of Badass Teachers, http://www.badassteacher.org/ to discuss the many issues destroying our education system. Marla offers the educator and activist perspective. BAT’s mission:

“to give voice to every teacher who refuses to be blamed for the failure of our society to erase poverty and inequality through education and refuse to accept assessments, tests and evaluations created and imposed by corporate driven entities that have contempt for authentic teaching and learning.”

“Medical Marijuana! We Take Your Children” on “I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee”

Recent headlines about state children services’ departments and police agencies removing children from homes where medical marijuana is being used has created a serious concern. Authorities have ignored the recent change in laws about marijuana and continued to separate families when they find out marijuana is being used in homes where children live. ChangThe Shona Banda case in Kansas is an example. The laws governing how states behave in this matter and, how a person who has had their children taken away can fight to get their children back, is a huge legal gray area with lots of discretion by judges, the police, and the child services’ workers. Domestic Custody Attorney Alfred Chang joins us this morning and offers expert insight in to this very important issue in our community. What to do if your children are removed from your home due to the use of marijuana both medically and recreational? What are your rights? What is the standard of evidence? How does this problem tie to any criminal process? Grab a cup of coffee and join us for an update on important current events and our education update.  “I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee” on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM EDT.

Detaining & Jailing: The Corporate Way on “I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee”

Liberty Banner Sized

As I reported on earlier this week for The Fifth Column News twice in the past fifteen days, two separate class action lawsuits, one in U.S. District Court, one in Grady County Superior Court, were filed naming Red Hills Community Probation (RHCP) LLC, its CEO Margaret B. Crutchfield, and the cities of Cairo, Pelham and Bainbridge, GA, as defendants.  The Federal case, Edwards, et al, v Red Hills Community Probation LLC, et al, filed by the Southern Center for Human Rights, also names probation officers and members of various police departments. The state case, Green v Red Hills, et al, alleges the defendants violated a number of state statutes including various RICO laws as well. The two cases, though not connected in any way, arise out of nearly identical facts and the same pattern of conduct. Joining me this morning to discuss the merits of the case is Attorney for the Plaintiff in Green, K, Todd Butler. Attorney Butler will discuss the allegations and the law supporting his decision to advance a RICO legal argument to the court. Along with the improper and illegal actions of a corporation acting “under color of state law”, for the sole purpose of profit.  I will be covering the latest important news subjects as well as our weekly education battle updates. Longtime Activist, Radio Host, Journalist and Coffee Party Director Bobby Rodrigo’s show “I Take LIBERTY With My Coffee” on Coffee Party USA Radio every Sunday Morning at 8:30AM EDT. Advocating engagement, pointing out the Constitution is the Rule of Law and why it should remain so.
