Welcome, to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective. I’m Glen Ford, along with my co-host, Nellie Bailey.

Bob Burnett – Trump and Hitler

It’s impossible to read Volker Ulrich’s remarkable biography, “Hitler, Ascent: 1889-1939,” without being struck by the parallels between Adolph Hitler and Donald Trump. 1.They were both charismatic political leaders. Watching grainy newsreel footage of Hitler speaking, it’s difficult to imagine what a hypnotic spell he cast on his pre-war German audiences. Just as it’s difficult to understand the impact of …

Trends This Week – The larger meaning behind Trump’s victory – 11.16.16

Liberals, stop whining. Donald Trump’s victory is more than an election triumph, it is a cultural socio-economic shift of seismic scale. It extends beyond the insular thinking and entrenched practices of the two dominant parties; rather, it signals the imminent destruction of systems and leaders who have failed for too long. It is also time for the rise a true third party.

Chris Hedges – It’s Worse Than You Think

Investments in the stocks of the war industry, internal security and the prison-industrial complex have skyrocketed since Trump won the presidency. There is a lot of money to be made from …

COLIN TODHUNTER – Congratulations America: Have You Just You’ve Been Trumped?

I watched Donald Trump’s presidential victory speech. He spoke a lot about unity, the potential of ordinary, marginalised people and about making the US great again. He spoke about rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure, creating jobs and about finding common ground with other nations. He can be quite charismatic and, taken at face value, quite convincing. His victory was, to a …
