Four Arrows calls home!

Truth Jihad Radio Mon. 10/24/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.

First hour: Four Arrows. Four Arrows (Don Jacobs)
was supposed to be my first-hour guest on Monday, but was stuck on a slow bus back from Mexico and couldn't make it.

Four Arrows teaches at Fielding Graduate University. He is the co-author with Jim Fetzer of American Assassination: The Strange Death of Senator Paul Wellstone, which has just been made into a great new movie that you can watch free courtesy of Snowshoe Films.

Books. by American Indian/Irish author Four Arrows, aka Don Trent Jacobs- a sampling of anti-establishment "wake-up" calls:

Physical Fitness for Firefighters (1976)- fought by city governments, lawyers and medical profession
Happy Exercise (A Children's book) 1981- taken off the market when Runner's World corporate clients complained about the message that TV ads were harmful to children
Patient Communication for First Responders 1988 – Remaindered suddenly after Prentice-Hall published because of legal concerns it should only be for licensed Mds
Primal Awareness- about U.S. Involvement in drug trade in Mexico
The Bum's Rush: The Selling of Environmental Backlash - deconstructing anti-environmental propaganda of Rush Limbaugh- not allowed in many universities –needed to self publish
Chapters in Education as Enforcement: The Corporatization and Militarization of Schooling
Chapter in The Hidden History of 9/11- Elssevier- not one mainstream review
The Authentic Dissertation- non-Western thinking finally bumping into the academic ivory tower
Critical Neurophilosophy and Indigenous Wisdom- challenging neuroscience and its western filters
Differing Worldviews a book Alice Walker says "I'm in bed with the devil" about….

It turns out that Four Arrows and I have something in common: We were both hounded out of academic jobs due to our support for 9/11 truth (and in his case, the truth about Wellstone's death). In fact, the level of harassment Four Arrows experienced not only drove him out of a job at Northern Arizona University, but out of the country!

2nd hour: Four Arrows may or may not stick around for a conversation with Rolf Lindgren about the late great Ed Thompson, the Ron Paul campaign, ZoMBies, and more!

4 comments:

  1. I had always read that Eisenhower's term was originally "military-industrial-congressional"; Four arrows has introduced in interesting and timely (given OWS) earlier iteration: "military-industrial-financial."
    Can we get a source for that?

    Four Arrows and Lindgren, both great guests

  3. Four Arrows replies to Chris:

    Chris is right. As I said on the radio, the thing he wrote and was talked out of included "congressional." In the book I read, however, his use of congressional related to the voting of congress according to financial pressures and interests. When I get time, I'll try to find that. Since we all know that congress is all about the money, for now we can conclude that they are sufficiently equal in meaning. The point is, he did not use it, eh.

  4. Perhaps Rolf could urge Ron Paul to call out the Mitten in the next debate. Romney says his Israel policy will be dictated by... Israel!

    From thinkprogress: http://thinkprogress.org/security/2011/10/28/356276/romney-israel-policy/


    RP, next debate: "When I am president, I will decide our policy toward other countries. Unlike Mitt Romney, who, in the case of Israel, would do whatever Israel tells him to do"
