The archaeological site of Gobekli Tepe in Southeastern Turkey is evidence of an advanced civilization that existed before the end of the last ice age which ended suddenly in 9,700 BC due to cataclysmic solar events that rained havoc on the earth. The beautifully carved stone pillars unearthed at Gobekli Tepe were oriented toward the Pleiades, Taurus, and the constellation Orion. Above and underground rock shelters in the Cappadocia region of Turkey are estimated to have at one time each sheltered tens of thousands of people and small animals. Easter Island in the South Pacific also reveals evidence of catastrophic solar events on petroglyphs - stone carvings depicting powerful plasma events in the skies that ended the last ice age. Stone bunkers built on Easter Island would have given shelter. The Easter Island Rongorongo glyphs depict what resembles plasma discharges that would have been seen in the sky. A 6,000 year dark age ensued which Robert Schoch refers to as the Solar Induced Dark Age.

Robert Schoch's research, put forth in his book, "Forgotten Civilization - The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future", points to the astronomical cause of the demise of antediluvian civilization, as well as the scientific and archaeological evidence that supports his conclusions. He is well known for his work in Egypt re-dating the Sphinx back 12,000 years. Initially he was criticized for his research because there was no evidence of other civilizations dating back that far, until the discovery of the archeological site of Gobekli Tepe, a very sophisticated version of Stonehenge in Southeastern Turkey.

Dear Guns and Butter Supporters and Listeners,
 
Guns and Butter has been taken off the KPFA airwaves by the General Manager of the station.
 
I received on Wednesday, August 8th, before Guns and Butter would have aired on KPFA, the following email from the General Manager:
Bonnie,
 
KPFA will cease broadcasting “Guns and Butter” effective immediately.
 
We’ve received an avalanche of negative calls and emails from listeners about your uncritically airing of views by a holocaust denier, climate denial and casting the Parkland mass shooting survivors as crisis actors.  As steward of our airways, we can’t defend this content to our listeners.
 
Sincerely,
 
Quincy McCoy     Kevin Cartwright
General Manager  Program Director
This was followed by removal of the entire KPFA broadcast archives of Guns and Butter, down the memory hole.
 
KPFA defines itself as "Free Speech Radio" and this reaction is a form of censorship.  There was no discussion of these claims, nor any provision for due process or community involvement before these actions were taken.  If you are as taken aback as we are, as many of our listeners have already expressed to us by email, you can have your voice heard in this matter.

You can make in-person comments at the next KPFA Local Station Board Meeting this Saturday.
 
        In Person Comments:
 
        KPFA Local Station Board Meeting
        Saturday, August 18th, 11:00AM
        Town Hall Meeting, 1:00PM.
        Public comments will be taken.
 
        North Berkeley Senior Center
        1901 Hearst Avenue
        Berkeley, California
        (Hearst Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Way)
        (Wheel chair accessible)
 
        Online Comments:Feel free to copy us on any emails (gunsandbutter@startmail.com) you send in and let us know if you attend the Local Station Board Meeting.

 And please forward this to others you know who have the same concerns. With the recent move of censorship by many companies, it is more important than ever to make your voice heard.
