Eugene Robinson describes our direction thoroughly

Peter Aller

Robinson of the Washington Post tracks the the worsening of Trump, the growing energy of the electorate via The Women's March, Democratic victories in Va & AL as Anti-Trump measures,and points us to the Nov 2018 elections as a solution.

We have a serious race going in Congressional District 3 to unseat the Herrera incumbent. Focusing our dollars, our time and, our energy on a winning candidate can banish Jaime.

Meaningful Movies

Peter Aller

Press Release

 

This Month With Meaningful Movies at

Cascade Park Community Library

 

Our documentary, “Shadows of Liberty, reviews the history of media in our country and how new technologies have changed the landscape of information delivery over the years. It reveals the forces which have been brought to bear to change the fundamental purpose in some parts of that landscape from informing the public to entertainment and promotion of special interest agendas. We believe that both conservative and liberal members of our audience will leave with a the perspective that major outlets of news in our country are neither liberal nor conservative, but something else, which is never discussed within those outlets.

When we have our Community Conversation the following week, we will be able to hear from a panel of media personnel about how they were attracted to their work and the challenges they face in today's media climate. There will also be an opportunity for sharing reactions to the documentary and asking questions of the panel.

However, gaining a better understanding is only the beginning. One of the major conclusions of the documentary is that independent local media is critically important to maintaining a functioning democracy. We hope our audience will leave with a renewed commitment to utilize and support our local media infrastructure and a few ideas of how to evaluate and distinguish between reliable news sources designed to inform and information with another purpose.

Panelists for the event are: John Hill, Metro Desk Editor at The Columbian,

Jim Demmon, the manager of the Clark/Vancouver Television (CVTV), and Susan Galaviz who championed the establishment of KXRW FM radio here in Vancouver. We are hoping for a fourth panelist but must await word about his scheduling.

When: November 9th at 6:00PM (doors open at 5:30PM) for the screening;

and November 16th at the same hours for the Community Conversation.

Where: Cascade Park Community Library, 600 NE 136th Ave, Vancouver, WA 98684

Accomodations: There is no admission charge; pizza and water are provided; free will donations are accepted to help cover food cost.

Leonard Pitts Duscusses Tuesday's win

Peter Aller

Miami Herald columnist, Leonard Pitt on Friday examined the way we won on Tuesday and suggests how to keep that momentum going.  He says Trumpism is not dead, but is wounded.  He points out the victories and some of their ironies - that a transgender woman defeated the man who authored the transgender bathroom restrictions in Virginia.

The push to victory seemingly came from people who failed to vote in the 2016 election but are anti-Trumpism advocates now.  These are the people we must continue to nurture for 2018 and through 2020.

The Trump worshipers are intransigent to a fault - reason escapes them - and are not to be bothered with; just voted over top of.

Trump tax plan disingenuous

Peter Aller

Here's another statement about the flawed Trump tax plan.  Lawrence H. Summers is a Harvard Professor who used to work for Pres Obama.  This op/ed appeared in The Columbian 10/16/17.

Summers is direct in his appraisal.  The tax plan will hurt the country and not help the middle class.
