Nuclear Heartland USA - John LaForge of Nukewatch in Berkeley CA




John LaForge of NukeWatchInfo.org presented an engaging power-point lecture about publishing the revised edition of “Nuclear Heartland”. It was updated from the original 1988 edition to let people know where the land-based missile silos are located in the United States. John spoke in Historic Fellowship Hall in Berkeley, CA when the BFUU Social Justice Committee invited him to do his powerpoint presentation.

The enhanced visual video took months of work. It was first published in March 2017 at SOCIAL JUSTICE IN THE HEART OF BERKELEY YouTube Channel
. Since it was made to be a free Creative Commons Copyright for non-profit use with accreditation and no-edits, it has been posted at a number of other sites. Note: The video is available for you to use at your local Public Access Cable TV from PEGMedia: pegmedia.org/index.php?q=msvr/ep/28857/detail 

John LaForge predicted to a very skeptical crowd in Berkeley in his October 13, 2016 presentation that the UN General Assembly was going to take strong action against the new Nuclear Arms race and the proliferation of countries creating
such horrific weapons arsenals. The UN General Assembly did in fact vote the next week and again in July 2017 to take historic stands on this existential threat to all humankind.

The UN General Assembly voted on Oct 27, 2016 to make 2017 the year for the world focus on pressing forward with the obligatory disarmament negotiations required of signatories to the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty) and to stop the proliferation of such horrific weapons by other non-signatory nations. Under President Obama the US voted NO to even having conferences about nuclear disarmament and Obama approved massive new expenditures before leaving office. Under President Trump the US boycotted the UN General Assembly nuclear disarmament talks in March and July 2017.

On July 7, 2017 the UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly in a rare act of defiance of the Security Council to make nuclear weapons illegal, and that the
Nuclear Non-Proliferation obligations of signatories to dismantle nuclear weapons be negotiated by all parties
Yet President Trump spoke to the General Assembly and threatened "total destruction" and "fire and fury" to the population of North Korea!!! Meanwhile our controlled media has fed the public a frenzy of superficial
insults and anger about scripted Trump tweets and diversionary, divisive claims by fake “liberals” about "RussiaGate. The 2 wngs of the War Party and the Mockingbird Media have been rather successful at controlling the national dialogue. There was little coverage of this historic
UN votes, and people soon forgot the populist issues that brought Senator Sanders and Donald Trump to the fore of the 2016 election primaries: end the 9/11 wars, stop intervening in the Middle East, enact a Universal Health Care bill and end student debt slavery for going to college. Who can talk about anything that matters in this political
climate?

The Moods of the Sea - A Poem by Jean Henri Sadot



This Moods of the Sea poetry video is a 5 minute 20 second segment extracted from the 26 minute 37 second video that was created from a 2003 Dream Streets Radio Show audio track in July 2018 by Vic Sadot.




The full video segment has 8 Jean-Henri Sadot poems presented as poems or songs on the audio track from the July 28, 2003 Dream Streets Radio Show hosted by Steven Leech on WVUD 91.3 FM, "The Voice of the University of Delaware", in Newark, DE.


The Moods of the Sea 
was written by Jean-Henri Sadot in 1966. Based on his memoirs it is likely that he was remembering the short stay in Trinidad when his Free French ship was crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Africa in 1942 for re-tooling at the Brooklyn Navy yard in New York City. It must have seemed so strange to have seen France fall to the Nazi blitzkrieg and occupation and then to be in such a tranquil place knowing that duty would call him and his shipmates back to the war. 





The 8 poem video made from the July 28, 2003 Dream Streets Radio Show has: (1) Iron Hill; (2) Early Roses of 1940; (3) White Clay Creek; (4) The Statue of Liberty; (5) Summertime Sunset; (6) Blizzard; (7) A Little Girl’s Bedtime; and (8) The Moods of the Sea.

Screenshot from Dream Streets Radio Show Presents the Poems of Jean-Henri Sadot vidto. There is actually a Jean Sadot poem about The Scuttling of the Free French Fleet, but in this 2003 audio there was only a discussion about the events of 1940 and the formation of the French Resistance and the Free French Army and Navy under General Charles DeGaulle

SYNOPSIS: Introduction & discussion of Jean-Henri Sadot’s childhood in Normandy, just across from England; his involvement starting at age 20 in WWII as a French soldier, Resistance camp participant in the Pyrennes Mountains on the Spanish border, and his escape from Nazi occupied France on a battleship running out of Toulon harbor that went to North Africa and then to Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York City for retooling for warfare in the invasion of Provence in 1944.
He participated in the retaking of Toulon, the same harbor he escaped from just before Admiral deLaborde ordered the scuttling of the French Fleet to keep it from being used by the Nazis and the Vichy collaboration government. Jean Sadot’s poems carry themes and perspectives on history and nature often grounded in local places or very personal experiences. He worked on the Chrysler assembly line and attended classes at the University of Delaware while raising 5 children with his wife Eleanor Lafferty, who grew up on a farm in Landenberg, PA and graduated from Kennett Square High School before serving in New York City as a US Navy “Wave” office worker during WWII. They met in a Broadway Cafe and wrote letters until reuniting after the war.

There is a discussion of strained French-American relations in 2003 due to the new invasion and occupation of Iraq by the US and UK under G W Bush and Tony Blair. The French and Germans were very much against this war. G W Bush and Dick Cheney and the NeoCons had lied to make war and profited from it with their fellow “Masters of War”. In 2003 the US and UK were not supported in the military and cultural destruction of Iraq. Most of the NATO nations, and notably France and Germany, were against the invasion of Iraq as they were doing business there, as were many American businesses. Public remarks in the media by President G. W. Bush aggravated the disagreement and tensions as Bush comments compared the 60th Anniversary of the D-Day Landing in Normandy, France to his 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq as comparable to the 1944 “liberation” of France and other European countries under Nazi occupation. Vic had just returned from playing at the Fête de Musique in Carentan, Normandy, France, his father Jean-Henri Sadot's home town. Vic has a little story to tell about cousin Gilbert Sadot getting a call in the evening from the Carentan mayor inviting him, and his visiting American and other French cousins to meet with the mayor and the town's cultural minister for champagne at the Hotel de Ville. They brought up the subject of "Freedom fries" and strained US-French relations over the G. W. Bush - Cheney regime US-UK invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Two poems have been extracted from the video to be shorter stand alone videos:
White Clay Creek &
Summertime Sunset.
