US Defense Secretary Mattis announced 3000 more troops to be deployed in Afghanistan. Honda has announced plans to invest $267 million in a factory in Ohio. In Turkey there were rallies against the planned referendum in Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region. Iran and Venezuela reacted to Trump's speech at the UN, with Iran calling it medieval hate speech. The North Korean Foreign Minister described Trump's speech as nonsense, like the barking of a dog.     From GERMANY- German Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing an easy election victory this Sunday. She spoke with Deutsche-Welle about the North Korea crisis, saying she does not support military action and again offered assistance in mediating a resolution. She attacked Trump for his military threats at the UN, and discussed the problems large immigration has resulted in, including the rise of hate and the far-right political parties.      From CUBA- Trump attacked Venezuela in his UN speech saying that President Maduro was not following the will of the people. Before Trump spoke, the UN Secretary-General Guterres told world leaders that the threat of a nuclear is at its highest level since the end of the Cold War, and warned against fiery talk. There is extreme damage in Cuba from hurricane Irma and the government is offering to finance 50% of materials to rebuild households. Brazilian prosecutors brought fresh corruption charges against President Temer and six associates. On Wednesday Spanish police seized 10 million ballots for the referendum in Catalonia- thousands took to streets in Barcelona after they arrested 13 government officials.       From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the the Catalonian referendum, which is scheduled for October 1. The federal government has the constitutional power to bring in the military to stop the referendum on separating the region from the nation, or possibly cut electricity to all polling stations on election day. There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -  I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at   All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer. TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < >  I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt!
