This Can’t Be Happening – 11.30.16

Robb Kall, founder of the progressive website OpEd News, and host Dave Lindorff, both smeared by the Washington Post and the obscure website PropOrNot.com that it relied upon in an article claiming 200 news sites to be working in league with Russian propaganda organs to undermine US democracy, talk about this return to McCarthyite red-baiting by the once great newspaper that brought us the expose of the Watergate Scandal.

Alternative Visions – US Incomes And Pre-Election Hype About Economic Recovery – 09.16.16

Jack takes on recent reports from private and government sources this past week that US incomes and the economy are finally recovering. Taking issue with Paul Krugman’s column today, ‘Trickle Up Economics’, hyping the reports, Jack cites and explains contrary data that show the reports and Krugman punditry are questionable. Alternative sources, like the Gallup Poll, show 87% of US population surveyed consider the economy poor or getting worse. Other sources show the doubling of death rates from drugs, suicide, and alcohol for the 25-64 age group—Trump’s target voters in key swing states. Jack discusses data showing Trump now leads in key swing states, Ohio and Florida, where incomes remain down as much as 10%, as well as in other swing states. Why Clinton’s campaign is trying to reorient to the 25-64 group and millennials—too little too late. The show concludes with Jack repeating his prediction of US recession in 2017-18, and predicting post-election policies of more business tax cuts, infrastructure spending, TPP, and Fed interest rate hikes are coming.

Thomas Frank – Bill Clinton’s crime bill destroyed lives, and there’s no point denying it

Here is an actual headline that appeared in the New York Times this week: Prison Rate Was Rising Years Before 1994 Law. It is an unusual departure for a newspaper, since what is being reported here is not news but history – or, rather, a particular interpretation of history. The “1994 Law” to which the headline refers is the Violent Crime Control …

Solartopia Green Power and Wellness Hour – 10.29.15

LEGAL POT IN OHIO?

With Political Science Professor BOB FITRAKIS we discuss the very controversial Proposition 3 which would establish legal corporations to grow and dominate the marijuana trade in Ohio. The details of this proposition are so mind-binding you will have to listen to this discussion to sort it all out (we dare you!!!)

We also talk about our new article WHY THE DRUG WAR HAS BEEN A FORTY-YEAR LYNCHING (www.freepress.org) which gets to the bottom of how Richard Nixon and the Republican Party used the War on Drugs to change the nature of politics in America. Among other things, some FORTY MILLION PEOPLE have been arrested for drugs in the US since 1970, with many millions of them losing the right to vote. This helped swing the south to the GOP and give it control of the US Congress.

It’s a mind-boggling issue. Toke up and take a listen!!!

Jon Kofas – Youth In America, Russia And China

America’s youth is a reflection of the diverse society and its contemporary political trends. It is true that a segment of the youth is anti-government and anti-military but not nearly at levels America had seen during the last years of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal under Richard Nixon. One would need to go back to the Eisenhower administration …
