On Sunday evening, Martin Sheen took the stage at Camp Casey II in Crawford to express his support for Cindy Sheehan and the cause that has brought so many protestors to President Bush's doorstep.

The Brad Show, the only radio show with live coverage of the evening's events, has part one of Martin Sheen's speech in available in the Operation Noble Cause archives.

BRAD SHOW's 'Operation Noble Cause' Continues...
On RAW RADIO - LIVE from Crawford, Texas at HIGH NOON...
By Brad Friedman on 8/29/2005 7:48am PT  

U.S. Army Specialist Tomas Young has some questions for George W. Bush. He's never met with the Commander-in-Chief who sent him into Sadr City, Iraq in a canvass covered truck during a massive uprising in that city on April 4, 2004. The same city on the same day that Cindy Sheehan's son Casey was killed.

Tomas was lucky. He was only paralyzed from the chest down. Amongst other things he'd like to ask of Bush, is why he won't allow funding for stem cell research which might eventually restore the spine that he lost in Bush's War. A spine, as Tomas explained to us yesterday on The BRAD SHOW, which apparently Bush has never had.

Tomas and his new wife Bree (also pictured), came to Crawford from Kansas City on their honeymoon to "stand" in support of Cindy Sheehan.

We now have our interview with Tomas up in the BRAD SHOW "Operation Noble Cause" Archives shortly, with much more news, sound and the stories of the people of Camp Casey on today's LIVE BRAD SHOW from Camp Casey beginning at HIGH NOON in Crawford (1p ET, 12p CT, 11a MT, 10a). We are hoping to feature several Bush supporters on today's show!

Until then, WhiteRoseSociety.org is looping the previous days BRADcast throughout the night (live listening links here and here).

We have now broadcast 42 hours of LIVE coverage from on the ground in Crawford, Texas in the last seven days, simulcast over at least 7 different radio networks at various times, including Air America for several hours on Saturday. All hosted by your friendly citizen blogger, Brad Friedman. We are the only broadcast "organization" to feature such live daily coverage!

Your DONATIONS continue to be greatly needed and very much appreciated in order to help make all of this possible!

Air America's Randi Rhodes Stops by, Laura Flanders Sticks Around...
Much much more today from RAW RADIO's
By Brad Friedman on 8/28/2005 7:37am PT  

We've got a lot of photos of interviews and such, but are having problems pulling them off our camera and getting them onto the net (just one of the many continuous uphill battles out here, like crashed computers, overheated equipment and hosts, etc...). These photos, however, were sent to me, and I was actually able to receive them (go figure!) so here's a few from yesterday...

Air America's Randi Rhodes showed up yesterday during our 6th hour of LIVE programming (we did 9 yesterday) just before we began our simulcast with Air America's Laura Flanders Show. Randi waited in line during our "Lightning Round", where we were quickly trying to get the voices of as many people in the crowd on air as we could, to surprise us and say hello. Unfortunately, she's not broadcasting from Crawford...other than on RAW RADIO's The BRAD SHOW... :-)

We'll try to get Randi's "cameo" into The BRAD SHOW "Operation Noble Cause" highlights soon!

We were honored to serve as hosts to the folks from Laura Flanders show on Air America to help them get up and on the air during the final three hours of our show on Saturday...Here she is...

And finally...here's a shot of Cindy Sheehan sitting down with us for her first one-on-one interview since returning to Camp Casey after going to Los Angeles to tend to her mother who'd had a recent stroke...

Much more today as we beginning at HIGH NOON in Crawford, as usual. We'll be back at Camp Casey today and hope to be carrying LIVE all of the events and rallies on the stage in the big tent. Rumor has it we'll hear from Rev. Al Sharpton, Randi Rhodes and perhaps Martin Sheen (the real President of the United States...Perhaps he'll be able to tell us what the "noble cause" is.)

In the past six days, we've broadcast over 35 hours of LIVE coverage on the ground in Crawford, Texas over at least 7 different radio networks!

We'll be here till it's all over...and thank you very much for the SUPPORT where you can afford to lend it!

UPDATE: Randi Rhodes' visit with The BRAD SHOW and other highlights have been added to the Operation Noble Cause archives!




What If That Spark Takes Hold?
Will It Start A Fire? And Will That Fire Finally Set Us All Free?
By Chris Floyd on 8/27/2005 4:20pm PT  

Guest blogged by Chris Floyd

INTRODUCTION {by Winter Patriot} Once again I am honored to introduce a masterful contribution from one of the English-speaking world's most literate truth-tellers, the honorable Chris Floyd. An American journalist living in England, whose column on world affairs, "Global Eye", is published weekly in The Moscow Times, the proprietor of the excellent blog Empire Burlesque, and a good friend of both The BRAD BLOG and The Whispering Campaign, Chris Floyd joins us once again, to share a column that was published in Friday's Moscow Times. And this time he has brought a spark of hope.

Here's Chris:

In his inaugural speech last January, President George W. Bush repeatedly invoked images of unbridled, ravaging destruction as the emblem of his crusade for "freedom." Fire was his symbol, his word of power, his incantation of holy war. Mirroring the rhetoric of his fundamentalist enemies, Bush moved the conflict from the political to the spiritual, from the outer world to the inner soul, claiming that he had lit "a fire in the minds of men."

But words are recalcitrant things; they have their own magic, and they will often find their own meanings, outside the intentions of those who use them. Bush has indeed inflamed the minds of men --- and women --- with his military crusade. But it is not the "untamed fire of freedom" that scorches them: it is the fire of grief and outrage at the lies that have consumed the bodies of their loved ones. This bitter flame burns in the rubble of blasted houses in Iraq and in the quiet, leafy suburbs of America, where the dead are mourned and the mutilated are left as the enduring legacy of Bush's cruel, wilful and unnecessary war.

This "fire in the mind" has now found its own symbol, in the unlikely figure of Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a slain American soldier. Here again, Bush's war-rousing words have gotten away from him. Sheehan's campaign --- which began as a lonely vigil outside Bush's vacation ranch and has now spread across the country --- centers on a single, simple request: that Bush explain to her what he means when he describes the war as "a noble cause."

Sheehan is no professional activist, no savvy insider or political junkie. She's an ordinary citizen, whose unadorned speech has none of the sweep and grandeur of Bush's expensively tailored rhetoric. But she has one thing that his professional scripters can never put in the presidential mouth: truth.

AlaskaGyrl has been doing some tremendous photo blogging from Camp Casey.

Here's a quickie of Otie and I not long after we arrived in Crawford, figuring out how the hell we're gonna be able to get on the air the next day:

We look considerably older and much more tired by now :-)

Laura Flanders Comes to Crawford...
Piggybacks With BRAD SHOW via RAW RADIO's Hamster/Wheel Broacasting Technology!
By Brad Friedman on 8/26/2005 4:47pm PT  

In the spirit exemplified by the Peace House in Crawford, Texas, Saturday Night radio "competitors" Laura Flanders of Air America Radio and Brad Friedman of The BRAD SHOW via RAW RADIO are announcing an historic partnership as they broadcast their programs together this Saturday Night from on the ground in Crawford!

The BRAD SHOW has been the only LIVE broadcasting "organization" on the ground at Camp Casey to air continuous live daily coverage of the events, voices and news surrounding Gold Star Mother Cindy Sheehan's "standoff" with George W. Bush.

The BRAD SHOW has now broadcast over 26 hours of live radio across four different radio networks since last Monday, including exclusive uninterrupted coverage of Joan Baez' performances from Camp Casey and Cindy Sheehan's late-night comments to supporters.

Friedman's interview with Sheehan on Thursday was her first one-on-one interview since returning to Crawford, Texas after travelling to Los Angeles to care for her mother who suffered a stroke last week.

This weekend's broadcast schedule is the most ambitious to date, with the handsome Mr. Friedman, scheduled to broadcast atleast eight hours on both Saturday and Sunday, including the planned simulcast with Air America's comely Ms. Flanders.

Friedman's daily broadcasts begin at HIGH NOON in Crawford, TX each day (1p ET, 12p CT, 11a MT, 10a PT). The Flanders/Friedman portion of Saturday's programming will begin at 6pm Central time and will be broadcast over the IBC Radio Network, White Rose Society, KPFTX.org, OmRadio.com and Air America Radio via The BRAD SHOW's miraculous tin-can and string technology powered by one exhausted hamster running around in a wheel constantly since Friedman arrived in Texas last Monday.

The BRAD SHOW via RAW RADIO is a co-production of Friedman's The BRAD BLOG and Internet news site RAW STORY in cooperation with IBC Radio Network.

Friedman, who interrupted his vacation to travel to Crawford and tell the truth since Rush Limbaugh is a liar, is exhausted, hot, but happy to be speaking truth to power...as long as his voice holds out.




How Anti-American Can You Get?
And When Will This Madness End?
By Winter Patriot on 8/26/2005 11:38am PT  

Guest blogged by Winter Patriot

Here's a disturbing report from Editor & Publisher:

American Legion Declares War on Protestors --- Media Next?

The American Legion, which has 2.7 million members, has declared war on antiwar protestors, and the media could be next. Speaking at its national convention in Honolulu, the group's national commander called for an end to all “public protests” and “media events” against the war.

"The American Legion will stand against anyone and any group that would demoralize our troops, or worse, endanger their lives by encouraging terrorists to continue their cowardly attacks against freedom-loving peoples," Thomas Cadmus, national commander, told delegates at the group's national convention in Honolulu.

The delegates voted to use whatever means necessary to "ensure the united backing of the American people to support our troops and the global war on terrorism."

In his speech, Cadmus declared: "It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect would be used against their successors today as they battle terrorists bent on our destruction.”

On the contrary, Mr. Cadmus: It would be tragic if the freedoms our veterans fought so valiantly to protect were denied to the citizens whose freedoms were supposedly being protected.

It's a shame that the American Legion leadership doesn't seem to understand any of this ... but we haven't given up hope. Someday they may come to their senses. But at the moment they are still locked into the bullshit they were fed more than thirty years ago:

"We had hoped that the lessons learned from the Vietnam War would be clear to our fellow citizens. Public protests against the war here at home while our young men and women are in harm's way on the other side of the globe only provide aid and comfort to our enemies."

What is clear to this citizen blogger is that Mr. Cadmus has no idea who our real enemies are.

According to Jason Thompson of Capitol Hill Blue, the obscene and abusive (supposedly "former") alcoholic who inhabits the Oval Office has been even more obscene and abusive lately than ever. Enjoy a few excerpts from Thompson's article of August 25th:

“I'm not meeting again with that goddamned bitch,” Bush screamed at aides who suggested he meet again with Cindy Sheehan, the war-protesting mother whose son died in Iraq. “She can go to hell as far as I'm concerned!”

Bush, administration aides confide, frequently explodes into tirades over those who protest the war, calling them “motherfucking traitors.”
...
“Who gives a flying fuck what the polls say,” he screamed at a recent strategy meeting. “I'm the President and I'll do whatever I goddamned please. They don't know shit.”
...
Aides say the President often “flips the bird” to show his displeasure and tells aides who disagree with him to “go to hell” or to “go fuck yourself.”

But don't worry. He's still a compassionate conservative, driven by Christian values. Same as he ever was.

Here is a selection of some of the latest videos from Camp Casey.

Most cable networks carried this morning's press conference at Camp Casey. Cindy gave an update on her mother's condition and remarked about how the protest had grown while she was away.

Video (Windows Media)

On Wednesday night, Cindy spoke to the crowd of supporters and responded to personal attacks from the right-wing media. DemocracyNow! and LinkTV provided this video clip. The BRAD SHOW broadcasted the event live and The BRAD BLOG has made the entire audio of her speech available for download.

Video (Windows Media)

DemocracyNow! and LinkTV have also provided a short clip of Joan Baez performing at Camp Casey on Wednesday night.

Video (Windows Media)

The pro-war group Move America Forward claims to be a grassroots movement but Keith Olbermann has exposed their connections to the GOP on MSNBC. The group was actually started by the Republican party and still uses the same PR firm to this day. It's pretty sad when you don't even have enough support for a real grassroots movement. We wonder if the pro-war protesters are also paid by the Republican party.

CrooksandLiars has the Video

Toolz of the New School blog posted this interesting video of Move America Forward pro-war operatives verbally assaulting a peace activist. It appears that Rush Limbaugh's tactics are now on a GOP sponsored bus tour that will be arriving in Crawford this weekend. Once again, the right-wingers seize the "moral low ground."
