    Special Bilingual Programming Sun Mar 25th

    Este domingo KPFK presenta un día especial de programación bilingüe

    Las y los programadores en español de KPFK te invitan a un día de programación bilingüe para hablar sobre inmigración, un tema tan trompeteado por el presidente Donald Trump y sus repetidoras en los medios de comunicación, en los que se responsabiliza y se culpa a los inmigrantes de habla hispana de todos los males económicos, politicos, y sociales en la Unión Americana.  Mientras los medios comerciales se dedican a debatir si Mexico pagará por el muro de Trump, mientras se incrementa el terror de las redadas de ICE, de los vigilantes racistas en la frontera con México, y de los centros de detención privados para inmigrantes, resulta más importante que nunca el papel de KPFK como fuente de información y análisis para la comunidad.

     La programación bilingüe, que comienza el sábado 24 de marzo a las 6 de la tarde y termina al día siguiente a las 8 de la noche, incluirá entre los invitados a defensores de los derechos humanos, abogados y organizaciones pro-inmigrantes, analistas y académicos, que con sus datos empíricos enriquecerán el debate sobre este importante tema en los EE.UU. Entre los ejes centrales de la discusión estarán la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA), el estatus de protección temporal (TPS) para los exiliados, refugiados, y víctimas del narcotráfico que alimenta el apetito voraz por drogas ilegales en EE.UU., y el no menos importante componente del lavado de miles de millones de dólares con el que se fortalecen los bancos y la bolsa de valores de Nueva York. También se abordará la lucrativa industria armamentista que se enriquece armando a docenas de países en su fallida y frustrada lucha en contra del narcotráfico.

    This Sunday KPFK presents a special day of bilingual programming
    KPFK Spanish-language programmers invite you to a day of bilingual programming to discuss issues related to immigration, a topic so fiercely trumpeted by President Donald Trump and his supporters in the media, who blame Spanish-speaking migrants for all economic, political, and social ills plaguing the United States. While the commercial media is debating whether Mexico will pay for Trump’s border wall, while our communities live in fear of being swept up in ICE raids, jailed in for-profit immigrant detention centers, and assaulted by racist vigilantes on the Mexican border,  the role of KPFK as source of information and analysis for the community is more crucial than ever.
    The bilingual Special Programming block, which starts this Saturday, March 24 at 6 pm and ends on the following day at 8 pm, will include among its guests human rights defenders, lawyers and pro-immigrant organizations, analysts and academics, who, with their analysis and empirical data, will enrich the debate on this important topic in the U.S.. Among the central axes of the discussion will be the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for exiles, refugees, and victims of drug trafficking that feeds the voracious appetite for illegal drugs in this country. No less important is the component of billions of dollars being laundered, strengthening U.S. banks and the N.Y. stock exchange.  Programming will also address the lucrative weapons industry that enriches itself by arming dozens of countries in their failed and frustrated fight against drug trafficking.

    • Meet the American Professor Suing Cambridge Analytica for His Psychographic Profile

      We turn now to the burgeoning scandal around voter-profiling company Cambridge Analytica. Startling revelations show the company harvested the data of more than 50 million Facebook users, without their permission, in efforts to sway voters to support President Donald Trump. Cambridge Analytica was founded by billionaire Robert Mercer. Trump's former adviser Steve Bannon of Breitbart News was one of the company's key strategists. Cambridge Analytica used the data to turn a voter-profiling company into a powerful psychological tool, which began launching targeted political ads aimed at carrying out Robert Mercer's far-right political agenda. We speak to David Carroll, an associate professor of media design at Parsons School of Design, who has filed a claim to force Cambridge Analytica to turn over all of the data it harvested on him.

    • Major New Investigation into Trump Real Estate Deals in India Reveals Corruption, Lawsuits, Fraud

      A major new investigation has just been published into Trump's business partnerships in India and the conflicts of interest these deals pose for the White House. The new cover story for The New Republic is titled "Political Corruption and the Art of the Deal." In it, journalist Anjali Kamat notes the Trump Organization has entered into more deals in India than in any other foreign country. These deals, she writes, are worth an estimated $1.5 billion and produced royalties of up to $11 million between 2014 and 2017. During her year-long investigation, Kamat traced Trump's India partners' long history of facing lawsuits, police inquiries and government investigations that contain evidence of potential bribery, fraud, intimidation, illegal land acquisition, tax evasion and money laundering.

    • Trump's Most Alarming Foreign Policy Move Yet? Warmonger John Bolton Named National Security Adviser

      President Trump has tapped John Bolton to become his next national security adviser, replacing H.R. McMaster. Bolton is known for his ultra-hawkish views. He has openly backed war against Iran and North Korea, and was a prominent supporter of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Just three weeks ago, Bolton wrote an article for The Wall Street Journal titled "The Legal Case for Striking North Korea First." In 2015, while the Obama administration was negotiating the Iran nuclear deal, Bolton wrote a piece titled "To Stop Iran's Bomb, Bomb Iran." We speak to longtime investigative reporter Gareth Porter. His new piece for The American Conservative is titled "The Untold Story of John Bolton's Campaign for War with Iran."
