On Friday April 13th, guest host Clyde Cleveland interviewed Congressman Ron Paul of Texas (R) on Planet Erstwild.  Paul is running for president.  Clyde Cleveland ran for governor of Iowa as the Libertarian Party candidate in 2002. Reason Magazine interviewed Paul about his presidential bid earlier this year. Asked what issues he would emphasize, Paul responded:

"Everything I’ve talked about for twenty years! I think the biggest thing for Republican primary voters is that most Republicans are turned off right now. They’ve had a beating and are reassessing their values. They have to decide what they believe in. The Republican Party has become about big government conservatism, and Republicans need to hear the message they used to hear: that conservatives are supposed to be for small government."

James Moore interviews Yashar Vasef on Planet Erstwild.

Yashar was Tehran indoorsborn in Tehran after the Islamic revolution. During the infamous 1988 'war of the cities' (Baghdad/Tehran) in which Tehran was bombarded by Russian and American missiles supplied to Iraq, his parents fled Iran in hopes of a brighter future for their children. So they ended up in Istanbul, Turkey as refugees of war and about two years later received asylum in the United States of America.

They moved from Cleveland to Los Angeles, most recently settling in Iowa City, where Yashar attended high school and the university. He studied Political Science and International Studies (w/ emphasis on Islamic studies) at the University of Iowa. He's been holding events with the Persian Student Organization on campus to break down cultural barriers between Iran and the United States. He recently embarked on a trip to Iran by himself, his first trip back 'home' since leaving as a child. James speaks with him at length about his impressions and experiences.

Sharon Lock talks about her arrival in Gaza on a boat from Frankfurt, Germany with 44 activists in the first such landing through the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip in 41 years. She reports on the the massive suprise assault by the Israel Air Force which killed over 200 Palestinians and was launched at 11am local time when children we're getting out of school.

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who is running for the office of prime minister in next month's Israeli national election along with Defense Minister Ehud Barack, said Israel had "no choice" but to mount the assault in response to rocket fire from Hamas into southern Israel, though no Israelis had been killed in the previous six months.

From 2000, when the first rocket was fired from Gaza, to 2008, rocket and mortar fire from Gaza have killed 20 Israelis. [Statistics from the Israel Project (TIP) website, an international non-profit organization, providing journalists and leaders accurate information about the Middle East.]

Featured on Planet Erstwild this week is a live phone-in interview with Osamah Khalil, a doctoral candidate in US & Middle East History at the University of California, Berkeley, focusing on the origins of US foreign policy in the Middle East. He is also a regular contributor to the Electronic Intifada website. We will be discussing his recent piece, "The Dogs of War." Its conclusion:

Caught between this collection of madmen, criminals and fools are the people of Gaza, who have suffered for far too long and have paid an unbelievable price for simply being Palestinian. After more then 30 months of sanctions and siege, many have become desperately poor, living a daily reality of constant terror and deprivation that few can imagine. Yet, in the face of overwhelming cruelty and a conspiracy of silence and indifference they persevere. That they must do so is an
indictment of us all.

Join host James Moore as he attempts to break down this complex subject. Israel is not allowing international journalists into the Gaza Strip.

James Moore speaks with Sharon Lock of the International Solidarity Movement in Jabaliya, Gaza. On August 23, 2008, along with 44 activists who had gathered in Cyprus, she landed in Gaza in one of the first boats to make it through Israel's sea blockade in 41 years, she told James.

She spent the previous night riding in ambulances helping collect the wounded in and around Jabaliya, a city in the north of Gaza, where heavy fighting has been reported. We spoke with Sharon the day after Israel's Air Force launched its surprise air assault 10 days ago that has now killed over 500 Palestinians and wounded 2500. 5 Israelis have died, 3 civilians and 2 soldiers since Israel launched its offensive.

A post from Sharon's blog: http://talestotell.wordpress.com/

People have asked me if I am frightened. What I am frightened by is the enormity of these events, at how few international eyes there are here to witness them, and that it is hard to imagine how it will end.

John Taylor Gatto

Tune in for a very special PLANET ERSTWILD. Host James Moore speaks with renowned author, speaker, and educational reformer John Taylor Gatto. If you enjoy having your assumptions challenged, you'll want to hear this.

Gatto spent 30 years teaching in public schools in New York. He was 3 times awarded the NYC Teacher of the Year before quitting with a Wall Street Journal article writing he was tired of hurting children. He contends that, by design, institutional teaching is not really teaching and actually harms children, breeding boredom, fostering obedience, and valuing conformity, competition and testing over promoting original, critical thinking and self-teaching.

Senator Hogg Urges Iowans To Create Jobs & Provide Clean Energy By Building Solar Projects 

CEDAR RAPIDS – State Senator Rob Hogg (D-Cedar Rapids) announced today that $1.5 million in state solar energy tax credits are now available for homes and businesses because of the passage of Senate File 2342.

With these state tax credits, now is the time for Iowa businesses and Iowa homeowners to move forward with solar energy projects,” Hogg said.  “Solar energy works in Iowa and helps meet our energy needs.  These tax credits will help create jobs for the installation of hundreds of solar projects across our state each year.”

The bill, which passed the Iowa Senate 45-1 and the Iowa House 82-14 and was signed by Governor Branstad on Friday, provides state tax credits for solar electric, solar hot water, and geothermal energy systems.  Iowans are now eligible for solar tax credits up to $3,000 per project for homeowners and $15,000 for businesses.

James Moore talks with Atlanta attorney Loren Collins, author of BULLSPOTTING: Finding Facts in the Age of Misinformation, about the DVD called "Dreams of My Real Father" by Joel Gilbert whose film is showing this weekemd in Fairfield, calling it "complete bunk." The DVD asserts that Obama's Kenyan father is a ruse to cover the "real" story: Obama is actually a red diaper baby, the son of commie/poet Frank Marshall Davis. Gilbert has made other films: one claiming Paul McCartney is dead and another that Elvis Presley is alive. 

The assertions of the story, according to Collins, simply do not hold up to simple investigative scientific scrutiny. Collin's website barackcryphal has the breakdown in clear detail. Up till this moment, it's received little comment from media and screened at only six places in the past two months, according to Gilbert's offical website. But perhaps flying under the radar means it will have a little explosion in key swing states just in the run up to the election, begging the age-old question: When money talks it is impolite for facts to interrupt?
