After listening to Philip refer to Italian Mafia when by now
he must know the Judaic organized crime was probably greater
everywhere but in the media of Hollywood, during the Meyer Lanski
era and his syndicate domination extended to Cuba, as well.
Today, that the Russian mafia which is 100% Judaic, and now
international, based out of Israel is top dog mafia syndicate.
Philip conduced a segment on Iran in which two apparent
crypto-Zionist Iranians managed not even to hint at the tremendous
danger the Iranian people are in from Israel, one of the most heavily
weaponized nations on earth with all manner of nuclear and
biological WMD, and the ZOG US government which recently
raised the money give-away to Israel of 3 billion yearly by an
additional $250 million.
The Tragedy here is the loss of Pacifica Radio to Zionist control
which means it has become the opposite of what it's Pacifist
founders intended it to be. They clearly saw that wars were
not likely to occur if the general public was truly informed
of the nature of the interests which created war for their own
gain. It may be that Pacifica was hijacked long ago, but it remains
a terrible shame; and Philip's misinformation junket today
into the matter of Iran without any mention of the deadly
intentions of it's hostile-to-all-neighbor: Israel, whose human
rights abuses in Palestine and aggression to it's neighbors
is the prime source of worry for all the governments in that
Were the 3 "American" citizens recently released by
Iran all Jewish Zionists?
Pacifica Radio functions as a subtle asset of the war machine
and obviously is a ZOR----Zionist Occupied Radio. I pray
that it may someday be liberated and find it's way back to
the founder's vision, which was a vital and important vision.
ZOR is the Opposite of that vision.
I appreciate the program you had on the horrific repression in Iran. This is vital information.
You mentioned the program that Rick Steves had done on Iran, and seemed puzzled as why he didn't include information about the political realities. That program was first aired at the time of intense saber rattling in Washington, and there was a real fear that the US might invade Iran. In an interview with Steve's he told that doing that program was a desire to show the possible, if not probable consequences of an attack on Iran. He wanted to show the humanity of the Iranian citizens, as well as the beauty of the land, it's artifacts and architecture. He made DVDs of the program available for $5 to people who wanted to show it in a group for discussion. I ordered 6 copies and donated them to 6 libraries. Though it's critical that we understand the repression in Iran, I think there is as well a valuable place for Steve's film.
I would like to know what are Philip's sources for his comment last week that the Mafia was prominent or in its heyday in the 1920s and 1930s. Presumably he means Sicilian Mafia since any other use of the term is dubious at best and probably erroneous at worst.
850 words. Another Occupy Oakland march attacked by police.
By Marc Sapir (Hi John Hamilton)
Oakland, CA--Saturday, January 28, 2012, Sheila and I joined about 1,500 members of Occupy massed at 14th and Broadway in downtown Oakland. Occupy Oakland’s announced intention was to march to and occupy a long vacant building “somewhere” in the city to re-create a living, working, and coordinating center for this young “politics on the fly” movement for the rights of the 99%. As you probably know, previous occupations of public space from coast to coast have been destroyed and precluded by Government ordered police actions, making community development, collaboration and participatory mass democracy yet more difficult.
The atmosphere was festive and gay, resembling what the counter culture of the 60s used to call a “be-in.” People of all ages, got up in all kinds of costumes, wheeling large platform dollies with furniture, mattresses, sleeping bags, grills, electronics, crates of canned foods, loaves of fresh bread and almost anything you can think of you might need in your new home, through the streets of the city. A drumming corp and a brass band separately did their thing. Within the march itself, music also blared from a powerful high quality sound system on a flatbed truck draped with young people. A famous recycled and refurbished AC Transit “Occupy” bus was ambushed out of the demo and occupied by the police. When one of the marchers’ platform dollies lost a wheel in a BART grating dozens of people came to the rescue, each picking up something from the load of materiale and carrying the stuff along the march. Sheila grabbed a box weighing about 15 pounds, which may have contained large plastic bags (at least according to its original printed label). We saw an old friend, Helen, in the drum group, pounding out a pulsing beat on a large drum strung from her waist. Young people smiled, swayed and danced their way snakelike through downtown until the march reached Laney College. There were also bicyclists, children in carriages pushed by parents, people of various ethnicities often in small social groups, and the always present minority of young anarchists with shields and masks.
Slowly the police began to mass around the march perimeters. At Laney the march was blocked by a police line to the left and had to enter the campus; and when it tried to exit we found most of the ways off campus barred by battle ready police lines. Exiting at the Southeast edge of campus the march tried to track back toward downtown, only to be fenced in and blocked by chain link fencing and police lines. With nowhere to go the march stalled for a short while until, without provocation, Oakland’s finest began lobbing numerous (probably about 10) smoke/flash grenades into the dense crowd. People scattered briefly without any panicking and then reassembled. About 10 minutes after the smoke cleared, the police from a cruiser speaker declared an unlawful assembly and issued a disperse order. We left the demonstration, backtracking our way out at that point to avoid arrest or being beaten. However, the police apparently did not attack the full demonstration at that time (from what we later learned) and you’ll have to find out what then transpired from some other intrepid reporter. One of those, still among the crowd when we left was Mitch Jeserich (in his wheelchair), undaunted and apparently recording for his KPFA Letters and Politics program (Mondays-Fridays 10 a.m. at 94.1 FM the SF Bay Area).
A 5 p.m. local newscast on Channel 7 (ABC) stated that police were forced to use grenades and teargas because an unruly crowd attacked them. If this happened it wasn’t while we were there. Although we were right in the middle of the crowd, we saw no attacks against the police, only the smoke grenade attack by the cops, although a few young men pushed down parts of the chain-link fences in a couple of places. From the way the crowd was blocked an uninvolved observer might well conclude that any confrontations were in response to the police decision to trap the march. The police and the ABC media coverage suggest that the aim of the 1%’s armed and responsive police was to create just enough chaos to: 1) prevent the Occupiers from reaching their objective location, 2) to justify some arrests, 3) provoke some skirmishes that would allow demonization of the 99% movement via the 1%’s wholly owned corporate capitalist media. We’ve all seen these tactics used against the Black and Latino communities and against immigrants.
In a perhaps unrelated provocation a couple of counter pickets held a huge printed sign at the start of the march with the slogan: Occupy attacks Workers Rights. No one paid them any attention. Later I overheard one marcher tell another: “The media and politicians always claim we are costing the city all this money for the police. But why are they calling out hundreds of cops? We aren’t destroying anything or hurting anyone. We don’t want them spending public funds on cops to attack us and prevent public discourse either. They do it to protect the monopoly of power of the 1%.”
The last news article I read about the French Labor Unions related to the large protest in France concerning the Socialist government's plan to raise the retirement age for government pensions from age fifty to age fifty-five. Apparently some vandalism had occurred during the protests but the Socialist government granted the protestors immunity from prosecution as to the vandalism. The unions may not have been responsible, but I am making a case for the strength of French unions
Unfortunate in the U.S. only about 12 million workers belong to unions or about 8 percent of the work force. The Wagoner Act, the original Federal collective bargaining law is fairly pro union. However, the Taft Hartley law bans the union shop, allows states to enact
right to work laws, and bans secondary boycotts. French labor law does not ban secondary boycotts.
French unions would no doubt support Occupy Wall Street protests and engage in boycotting products or services of corporations which are anti union and which ship jobs overseas.
What is needed is a joint effort by unions, boycott wall street, civil rights organization and other pro middle class groups to greatly protest the economic plight of the poor and middle class in the U.S. All of us need to get together and protest on a large scale. I am an author-attorney and have written a book titled "The Right Wing, the Good, the Bad, and the Crazy." The book contains several chapters on the middle class and poor, and the Tea Party's shafting of the middle class and poor. My website address is "http://wwwrightwingdisasters.com." Also, look up my videos on U. Tube titled, "U.S. Citizens Hide Money in Swiss Banks" and "The Right Wing, the Good, the Bad, and the Crazy." Charles Rider
The unabashed focus of the extreme right to is to get everyone on board (Left and Right) as opposing Obama so that the right wing agenda can sail through both houses of Congress and the Presidency with a huge win.
The attacks on the poor, the unemployed, labor unions, (you name it) are a classic "us" versus "them" tactic -- an ideology used to distract. Even more powerful is convincing people that it doesn't matter who one votes for. Last year ....when I cam back from several months in Washington D.C. , I was disheartened to hear the left utilizing the same Obama bashing rhetoric that the Tea Party was rallying around.
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." said Edmund Burke and Burke also stated: It is an advantage to all narrow wisdom and narrow morals that their maxims have a plausible air; and, on a cursory view, appear equal to first principles. They are light and portable. They are as current as copper coin; and about as valuable. They serve equally the first capacities and the lowest; and they are, at least, as useful to the worst men as to the best. Of this stamp is the cant of not man, but measures; a sort of charm by which many people get loose from every honourable engagement."
WE don't need a revolution in the streets... we need a revolution in critical thinking and consumer behaviours and our direct civicparticipation. Our apathy and silence in everyday local and regional and national politics and voting needs to be addressed rather than lay blame. In looking at the map showing the Presidential Election 2008 Results by COUNTY (that is county) over 80% voted for John McCain (which of course as we know did not translate into electoral votes).
The issue is that marching in the streets is reactionary-- getting involved in the community and the political landscape and utilizing monetary and behavioral boycotts as in withdrawal of giving our $'s to i.e., the Koch brothers enterprises ( Brawny Paper Towels, Angel Soft Toilet Paper etc.), moving $'s to Community Banks and Credit Unions, using alternative cell phone companies (CREDO v. Verizon) and refusing to eat at establishments that purchase from Industrial Agriculture. All that Jim Hightower has been outlining for over a decade yet we still consume from the very Corporate Entities that use our dollars to campaign against labor unions, health care etc. Unfortunately each generation will have to go through this learning curve.
But do remember the Boycotts of investments in South Africa, the Montgomery Bus Boycott-- etc. Do we have that resolve and stamina?
?? Why so much air time for everyone BUT Laura Nader? Seems inexplicably peculiar ....
When it comes to health care, what happened to the analogy with automobile insurance? Everyone seems to be agreed that this is legal, necessary and beneficial to society. It was brought up early in this whole debate, months and months ago, and now seems to have disappeared.
I loved the debate with Robert Scheer -- incredible when someone like him is willing to say "I was wrong" and "I fell for it". That's an extremely important thing for any leader such as he is to do. If only we could have large public forums in an ampitheater to hash these issues out as hundreds of people. Occupy Oakland had a wonderful space for public discourse in front of City Hall. We need more of those.
Don't vote evil, lesser evil or anti-abortion so you can have a balanced budget -- send a powerful message for peace, justice and progressive values and dare to vote for Jill Stein, the Green Party nominee. Or vote for anyone who is not corporate-owned. Ron Paul, unfortunately, will ultimately bow down to the same masters as the Ds and the Rs.
Until we act and risk voting for a "loser", a "spoiler", a "throw away" or a "protest vote", we will only go in circles downward. The Ds and Rs are trapped in a dangerous corporate-owned game and they will never get out of it on their own.
LOVED the Robert Scheer debate!!! Glad that Scheer brought up the hypocrisy of Jeffery Immelt being appointed the "Jobs Czar" in Washington. I was a machinist at Imatron in South San Francisco, and we made electron beam cat scanners, a very high tech medical tool that doctors loved. Our competition was General Electric. So GE bought Imatron, ran it for exactly 3 years (apparently a legal requirement), then liquidated it and sent the patents and the production to China. At Imatron, we not only lost our jobs, but we were required to destroy all of the special tools and fixtures that we had used to make that very complicated machine. And now GE's CEO, Jeff Immelt, has been put in charge of creating jobs in the US. Good luck with that.!!!
Sure, Sheer is obnoxious and arrogant but his views are right on and he has the fire in the belly that Progressives need!! Great show, Phillp! Kudos to you for taking the flak and playing devil's advocate for the sake of the show. This was one of your best shows in a long time.Thanks.
Listening to Phillip with his guest Reese Erlich, a Jewish journalist, I am struck by their
determination to bolster the official media presentation of the events in the Middle East, with minimal mention of Jewish Interests and Israel; this is remarkable unless no one has told mentioned
to Phillip or his guest thatr AIPAC dtermines the US foreign policy and Israeli's interests are PRIMARY. Remember the video that was placed on the internet showing U.S. Representative Jane Harman, member of the Subcommittee on intelligence, assuring and AIPAC gathering that the US was involved with contacting and supporting dissident elements of various minorities in Iran for the purpose of destabilizing that country.
On the show today, in regard to Phillip mentioning that there are allegations of similar activity
in Syria and other Islamic countries in the Mediterranean area, nuclear armed Israel's neighbors, the Erlich guest pooh-poohed the notion saying "how could they?" meaning it was not possible for the CIA [but really they should have been talking Mossad/cia].
The answer, surely, is they easily could have, and most likely did do the same type of infiltration and destabilization as they are well accustomed to do.
Phillip, notwithstanding his very pleasant and well meaning manner, is unable to see beyond a
Judaic elite agenda and the information he arranges for the listeners is filtered through that nation's self interest; this has the aspect of a "party line". It is NOT the search for truth and accuracy, wherever it may lead, that one might wish for.
We are a nation starved for accurate information about world affairs, and of the US Federal government; and KPFA does little to alleviate that and in being an agency of a party line agenda, makes itself progressively irrelevant.
The listeners, like people everywhere, long for accurate information; the facts, gives us the facts, don't be telling us what to think, we can decide that for ourselves but we need accurate facts. And don't be so afraid to have non-Judaic agenda interviewees.
As it is now, KPFA is crazy not to get funding from AIPAC or AIPAC members as it is serving their agenda. Or perhaps if it does that already, and has no intention of changing from the party line, it surely could tap AIPAC Billionaires for cash; may as well try.
Perhaps the Harmans?
Came here from Truth Dig to hear Scheer and really disappointed in Maldari. I stopped listening (and donating) to KPFA because of the nonsense Maldari and Aimee Allison pulled with The Morning Show in 2008 (including bringing on Barack Obama delegates and failing to inform the audience of that). I think when Allison was proposing burning The New Yorker on air - for their satirical cover of Barack and Michelle Obama -- that I finally said enough. I would have thought that nearly 4 years since I last listened, Philip Maldari would have learned how to be a man and not a little boy in need of a fairytale. I was wrong. Maldari needs to stop shrieking and try listening. I won't listen to KPFA again. As Robert Scheer tried to tell him, "You can't let Obama off the hook here." But KPFA will apparently always let him off the hook.
What I envision is that every party put forth a candidate for each office, we have a "primary" of our own as The Coalition Party, and each party, keeping their "values" and guidelines, would vote for each other's candidates, or their own candidate. But, this is truly the only way to change the direction of our country and make real head way in this rigged electoral system we have. So, whoever wins the election in our Coalition primaries will be the candidate that we will all back and these candidates would come from each party whether it be a Green, Justice, Independent, Peace and Freedom, Declined to State, etc.
I can understand each alternate party wanting to keep their values and political parties alive, but the harsh reality is when you only get 5 - 10% of the vote and always being financially strapped, I think it is almost impossible for those parties to make any head way in this corrupt one-party system.
The way to achieve this is to spread the word about the concept and the stats of 5 - 10% of the vote they're getting in each election vs. the 43% we are as a coalition, and talk with the leadership of each party and make it clear that they either stay as they are and continue to receive 5 - 10% of the vote and dwindling membership, no funds to run but a shoestring election, and loss of ballot access or all these parties join together as the Peace & Freedom Coalition Party/the Green Coalition Party/the Independent Coalition Party/the Declined to State Coalition Party/ the Justice Coalition Party, etc.
The coalition party is the parties united.
This is akin to the Democrats having the "Progressive Democrats of America" as an offshoot of the Democratic Party or the "Tea Party", the "Log Cabin Republicans" and Libertarian wing of the Republican Party.
I am getting a lot of good feedback from people saying to keep them informed. I think if we have a coalition party which would be the umbrella of the Peace and Freedom, Greens, Declined to State, Independents, the Justice Party, etc., and encompassing the unions, LBGT, "minorities", women, etc., then we will appeal to so many people that the "leadership" of each alternate party will have to follow or lose members.
I like the idea of The Coalition Party, but maybe it should be named the 99% Coalition Party since Occupy has become so mainstream and people identify with the 99% vs. the 1%.
re: Oct. 7, 2012 Morning Show
In listening to this program with the soundtrack of "Between Two Worlds" I am once again
horrified at what horrible things are done in the name of the "Holocaust" mythology.
I strongly urge KPFA, perhaps the Morning Show to open the door to the truth about the
"Holocaust" . What is the truth? It is the truth that has made the slur "anti-Semite" mean "Truth-teller". It is the truth that has robbed so many Europeans of their God given right to free speech by imprisoning them if they question the dogmatic mythology including some grievous lies bundled into force fed false history. Am I correct? You Phillip and KPFA should find out. Historical researchers are routinely imprisoned, leaving young children fatherless in
cases I have read about by cold blooded Jewish agenda that is ruthless in it's attempt, so far quite successful, to lie about history, with gross calumny against other peoples, and make a
cottage industry of producing untrue, lying novels presented as fact and movies endlessly adding more falsehoods which no one is permitted to question.
Set us free, KPFA and we will all be in your debt; for none dare, no media dares, to tell the truth about the imprisonment of truth tellers in Europe about the falsehoods, most specifically the lies about the existence of homicidal gas chambers in the Nazi forced labor camps.
This is what KPFA Pacifica was created to do: tell the truth and stop wars based on lies and
media manipulation. Do it. Here are two documentaries to begin with:
ONE THIRD OF THE HOLOCAUST 255 MINUTES
& THE TRUTH BEHIND THE GATES OF AUSCHWITZ
KPFA could reclaim it's birthright and tell the truth the suppression of which is the cause of so much misery in the world including here in the USA.
Set Hollywood free from it's relentless propaganda and calumny in this WW II extracted Great Lie. What did and what did not happen to the Jews in Europe and the USSR in the 1930's and 1940's? The truth is out there, let's find it because we still have Free Speech in America.
In Canada, Australia, and much of Europe telling the truth means prison.
In America, in Berkeley, place of the free speech movement you risk only the ire of gatekeepers of lies; harmful lies used to justify horrors of oppression against non-Jews every day.
This stimulating documentary, "Between Two Worlds" is a perfect call for truth to be set free, from it's captivity by the organized purveyors of LIES. Or will frank and honest examination of the Holocaust mythology affirm the official story? Let's find out; ground ourselves first in truth and accuracy because it is a third rail of controversy.
Its already in effect, http://registertovote.ca.gov/
It surprised me that in the first hour with the Truthdig man, discussing the political reality of the USA today, neigher AIPAC nor Israel was mentioned. I have a sense that I am living in a parrallel universe.
The destruction of America by todays billionaire class was mentioned but with bafflement that they should be so short sighted; there was no sense that the Billionaires my perhaps not be short sighted at all but rather acting as internationalists whose agenda is hostile to an America as it has histoically existed, and to which they hold no loyalty.
Mr. Truthdig evoked the notion of "scapegoating" of Jews in Nazi Germany instead of discussing AIPAC. My understanding of Germany in the 1930's, when Gertrude Stein recommended that Adolf Hitler receive the Nobel Prize for Peace, is that internationally organized Jewry declared economic war on Germany in 1933,
as noted by a front page headline of a London Newspaper in 1933 :
"Judea Declares War on Germany!" - Daily Express headline, March 24, 1933
An International Jewish Boycott Conference was assembled in Holland in the summer of 1933 under the Presidency of Mr. Samuel Untermeyer
A devastating boycott was then initiated against depression and Versailles treaty-abused Germany because Hitler was elected and international Jewish elites did not approve.
The entire mythology of both WW I and WW II needs to be re-addressed to discern what is true and what is not; I am finding that most of the official tales are essentially not true. Truth in history is vitall if we, as individuals and as a nation, are to learn from the mistakes of history. We are bound and gagged by an imposition of false history and rendered ever vulnerable by imposed ignorance.
A discussion of the elections of 2012 without mention of AIPAC and the AIPAC agenda is a diversion into unreality and deception.
Below are the title of an article which addresses the disinformation the opposition to Prop. 37
like the Sacramento Bee are disseminating and the webaddress of the article.
The NO on Prop 37 Campaign: Debunking the Lies
By Katherine Paul
Organic Consumers Association, October 18, 2012
In listening to the first hour with Mr. Sheer, 12/16/12 I am again appalled by the ruthless exploitation of the mysterious tragedy in Newtown CT to assault the Constitution of the US and advocate the disarming of the American population which does not wish to be disarmed. Black young people in Oakland CA shooting each other is evoked as the result of the Second Amendment, but it is unlikely that such youngsters have such guns legally. There are gun ownership laws.
Phillip eagerly disparages "conspiracy theories". That is more of the agenda to which Phillip is wedded to, beyond reason. Phillip is a host of whom I am fond, having listened to him for years and believe he is well meaning but ignorant almost beyond belief. I assume he has managed to live his adult life in a cocoon of an agenda that cannot tolerate any examination or opposition; critical examination of the agenda that owns Phillip is intolerable and not permitted. In fact he has displays a powerful negative emotional reaction at the hint of disagreement with the agenda he carries.
Conspiracy theory is a term created by mainstream disinformationists to disparage those who try to reveal suppressed truth and expose disinformation and misinformation.
In a way, a very real way, Phillip is a traitor to the dream of KPFA's creators which was to bring the truth in it's myriad views and expressions to the public and break free of the controlled information racket designed to tell the public what to think and manipulate it to think as dictated.
If the founder of KPFA were alive today and called in to the show he would surely be disparaged as a "conspiracy theorist".
The loss of KPFA to it's mission and creator's dream is a tragedy of immense proportions. It has been rendered a third tier disinformation outlet, and truth be told, if Phillip were not on board with the subverted agenda he would likely have been fired.
The Newtown CT tragedy filtered through the Sunday Show serves to illuminate the tragedy of KPFA as it is today.
Philip revisited the issue of the right to have an abortion and the seeming unending schemes to undermine it. Ho-hum. It has been an endless diversion and I thought gay rights, then gay marriage were set to replace it but it still gets traction. Both are used as major distractions and perhaps for that purpose in the media.
What I found myself wondering is whether the anti-abortion power entity or the pro-abortion power entity or both is/are the same or different than the entity that is involved in the slow mass murder of Americans through poisoned water, with fluoride especially and chlorine, stealth microbe and heavy metal contaminated vaccines whose efficacy is apparently is consistently misrepresented in any case; poisoned air with the weather manipulating dispersal of massive amounts of aerosolized fine particles of aluminum and barium with toxic long term effects on farmland and poisoned Frankenstein GMO foods designed to harm, and forced like fluoride, the powerful toxic pesticide by-product of heavy industry is forced, like chemtrails are forced, like vaccinations are forced on an ever more hapless American people. The newest assault in the form of DNA Breaking, Blood brain Barrier Breaking ULF RF non-thermal radiations wifi smart meters forced as replacements for relatively very safe analog meters onto human dwellings, schools etc. positioned to do the harm that can only occur with extended exposure. Weaponized chemical and utility meter continuous daily assaults on the people of America by a hidden elite with the power to enforce these murderous schemes; and Philip goes on almost weekly pushing the scheme to disarm Americans.
I listened to an interview with one of the producers of a three part documentary on the above assaults
though they may not include the most recently added wifi smart meter weapon, and I find myself wondering about the relationship of the much media covered abortion factions and completely not media covered very disturbing assault on us which is being continually augmented.
Philip's program is well situated in schedule to address these vitally important issues; issues which once considered neutralize any sense that de-arming the American people is desirable. Reality based open eyed view of what is happening in America today is totally non-conducive to the notion of disarming the people
as desirable to any but the hostile elite, whoever they are, and their minions who often, as in the case of Philip, I expect, know not what they do.
As a pediatrician and professor of medicine at several medical schools and residency programs this topic is about the best one for exposing the militant ignorance that is so common in what passes for progressive thought. One caller wanted a debate with someone who disagrees with your guest. I could debate various issues in vaccination policy with him, but no one without a strong scientific background would understand what we were saying. Public knowledge of health and science issues in the US has been trashed by our trashy mass media and by the vast population of professional liars calling themselves "public relations" experts who use scientific methods and analysis to confuse folks so their employers can reap ever greater profits from an intellectually helpless population. In order to have a truly informative show one would have to start with basic science education. Can't conceive of how that would be accomplished. But thanks for the effort.

Philip - at the end of the 8/11/13 show on Obamacare with Dave Johnson, a caller on Medicare and Medical called in with questions. Both you and your guest said "nothing would change" for him in terms of Dr. choice, etc. I went to a presentation sponsored by the San Jose Council on Aging (now called Sourcewise) in June 2013 about the ACA changes/options to people on Medicare & MediCal. The audience was full of professional case managers (social workers) who need to guide their clients through these changes, and they felt the information was hard to understand. It's a fairly complex issue. For up to date info on Medicare/MediCal recipients, you should call the Berkeley Senior Center and ask to speak to a HICAP
(Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program) representative. They are just learning the facts and could be helpful
