Pacifica to lose its CPB music licence this Sunday, 31May – unless it pays $137 506

Executive Director Lydia Brazon gave devastating news to this evening’s PNB Finance Cttee at 10.14pm: come up with $137 506 by Sunday or lose the legal right to broadcast licensed music.


ED Brazon said the debt arose in 2013, the result of an audit by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was her understanding that it could be paid out of some future sizeable grant from the CPB. Obviously the CPB has begged to differ.


The CPB had written to her last Friday, 22May. It determined that $137 506 was owed – by Sunday.


Last year I wrote about a 2012 CPB audit of Pacifica. This determined a $133 240 overpayment of Community Service Grants to Pacifica (p. 1; p. 2 of the PDF):

Audit of Pacifica: 21Sep2012. The audit was of two complete fiscal years, 2009 & 2010. (CPB & Pacifica have the same year-end, 30Sep; so FY2009 ended 30Sep2009.) The fieldwork was done between Jan & June 2012. 31 pages. (Office of Inspector General)

[The FY2018 draft auditor’s report may – may – be presented to the M1June PNB Audit Cttee. Wonder if a cttee member will ask if the creditors figure includes this $137 506 debt, a material amount? (As explained elsewhere, link below, it’s almost certain that the financial statements (income statement, balance sheet, &, derivatively, cashflow statement) will be judged worthless by the auditors, stamped with ‘disclaimer of opinion’, as they did last June with the FY2017 financial statements. A preferred stamp is that used in Hrabal’s classic, put on the screen by Jiří Menzel, & known in the US as Closely Watched Trains, & in the UK as Closely Observed Trains.); & (yes, time-stamped link)]


The pulped CDC sector guidelines – Trump goes for herd infection, whilst South Korea starts ‘social distancing in daily life’

W13May2020 UPDATE . . . The Associated Press news agency has now released a 68-page CDC doc which includes the 17-page guidelines it had previously published. They’re here as Appendix 5 (pp. 42-67), albeit in a different format & physical appearance. Note that AP doesn’t shed any light on the 68 pages being “Appendix F”, of some unidentified doc.

The sector guidelines, & some other pages, were as of F24Apr subject to approval by the OIRA – “[t]he Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) is a statutory part of the Office of Management and Budget within the Executive Office of the President. OIRA is the United States Government’s central authority for the review of Executive Branch regulations, approval of Government information collections, establishment of Government statistical practices, and coordination of Federal privacy policy.”

. . . does Redfield have the balls – nay, the integrity – to resign? . . .

Proximate gratitude is due to Associated Press. Also at

Six sets of “interim guidance”:

  • child care programmes;
  • skools & day camps (whoopee!!!);
  • communities of faith (that is, superstition cults);
  • employers with vulnerable workers;
  • restaurants & bars; &
  • mass transit administrators.

The fact the CDC puts superstition cults before workers, only shows how far pre-modern ideological practice has penetrated even the putative scientific. G-d bless Amerika.

Pages 10 & 11, on workplaces, are particularly relevant for Pacifica stations, not least for any resulting litigation concerning negligence, & so on. Also pp. 12-14 for arranging the wining & dining of those targeted donors.

The Emperor With No Clothes has spoken of hitting the body, with a tremendous, a powerful light, getting it inside the body, shining the light, shining the light inside the body. Even spoken of the disinfectant, injecting disinfectant into the veins of Amerika, almost a cleaning. The light. The disinfectant. Using medical doctors. But one thing the Bleach House hasn’t done publicly is revoke its F13Mar plan to vanquish Viro the Virus – but then it’s never been mentioned in a BH media briefing, not even by a journalist. And anyway, what do scientists know, huh? They even say things like “[a] pandemic will last 18 months or longer and could include multiple waves of illness” (p. 4, added emphases), their main working assumption given the paucity of knowledge. That’s scientists for you, eh. Amerika wasn’t made to be constrained by science, by nature. We’re supernatural, extraterrestrial, g-dly.
