Chip Ward – Indians and Cowboys: The 2016 Version of an Old Story on a New Planet

Cowboys and Indians are at it again. Americans who don’t live in the West may think that the historic clash of Native Americans and pioneering settlers is long past because the Indians were, after all, defeated and now drive cars, watch television, and shop at Walmart.  Not so.  That classic American narrative is back big time, only the Indians are …

Ralph Nader – Congress: AWOL and Out of Control

Taken as whole, with exceptions, the American people have the strangest attitude toward the Congress. Our national legislature spends nearly a quarter of our income and affects us one way or another every day of the year.

Focus on the Facts – 07.25.16

The first guest today was Jason Leopold, an investigative reporter who has covered Guantanamo Bay, national security, human rights, open government, and civil liberties. He is called a “FOIA Terrorist” by federal employees for his aggressive use of the Freedom of Information Act. In the latest response to a FOIA request, the US State Department revealed that Hillary Clinton exchanged nearly two-dozen top secret emails from her unsecured, private server with three senior aides while she was Secretary of State. The second guest was David Shurter, a Satanic Ritual Abuse Survivor who was tortured in the MK Ultra program until the age of 10. David became involved with the key players in the Franklin Credit Union Scandal in Omaha in the 1980s because the players were his parent’s friends. The scandal involved a network of pedophile rings in Nebraska and Washington DC, that traded young children to politicians and other wealthy people in the US for sexual abuse, human trafficking, drug trafficking and blackmail.

Leid Stories – Election 2016: Turning Political ‘Inevitabilities’ Around – 05.11.16

The results of yesterday’s primaries in West Virginia and Nebraska—with Donald Trump capturing both states and Bernie Sanders besting Hillary Clinton in West Virginia—have only moved political outcomes even closer to “inevitability.” Trump has no major impediments to clinching the Republican nomination, and Sanders’ win did little to blunt Clinton’s lead in delegates. The duopoly continues to take care of party business in the leadup to the general election in November, when, inevitably, there’ll be a new president in the White House.

Meanwhile, Leid Stories’ listeners ponder new approaches to politics and how best to prepare to cope with what soon will be our collective reality. We continue the discussion for the third day.
