      FEATURING JOSE BRAVO – The UN climate negotiations in Katowice, Poland wrapped up on Saturday after 2 weeks. The resulting deal is focused on the implementation of the 2015 Paris Accord.

    • Trump Demands Border Wall Funding

      FEATURING JUAN ESCALANTE – A number of Democratic lawmakers visited the tent encampment in Tornillo, Texas this weekend where US authorities are holding thousands of undocumented children in detention.

    • Headlines: December 17, 2018

      President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani in an interview on ABC admitted that meetings between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives continued from very early in the campaign all the way through to the election in November 2016. He also claimed that, “collusion is not a crime.” Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen – who has...

      FEATURING KEVIN MARTIN – The US Senate on Thursday voted 56 to 41 to end military participation in the Saudi Arabian war on Yemen.

    • From Arizona to Yemen: How Bombs Built by Raytheon in Tucson Killed 31 Civilians in Yemeni Village

      In a historic vote, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution on Thursday calling for an end to U.S. military and financial support for the Saudi-led war on Yemen. This represents the first time in U.S. history the Senate has voted to withdraw military forces from an unauthorized war using the War Powers Resolution. The Saudi-led war in Yemen has created what the U.N. calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis, with 14 million of Yemen's 28 million people on the brink of famine. A remarkable piece in this week's New York Times Magazine traces how bombs built by Raytheon in Tucson, Arizona, made its way into the Saudi arsenal and then were dropped on Yemeni villages. The article centers on what happened in the remote village of Arhab when U.S.-backed Saudi warplanes carried out a series of bombings on September 10, 2016. According to Human Rights Watch, at least 31 civilians were killed, three of them children; 42 people were injured. We speak to journalist Jeffrey Stern.

    • "To the Ramparts": Ralph Nader on How Bush & Obama Paved the Way for the Trump Presidency

      A new book by longtime consumer advocate, corporate critic and former presidential hopeful Ralph Nader links the criminality of the Trump administration to the unchecked power of previous U.S. presidents, including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. In "To the Ramparts: How Bush and Obama Paved the Way for the Trump Presidency, and Why It Isn't Too Late to Reverse Course," Nader argues that the U.S. federal government is fundamentally corrupt, warmongering and owned by corporations—but he also issues a call for members of the public to hold their representatives and senators accountable, including by building local Congress watchdog groups across the country and utilizing "citizens summons" to force members of Congress to appear before residents of their districts.

    • Ralph Nader on Single Payer, Climate Devastation, Impeachment & Why Mulvaney Is a "Massive Outlaw"

      As President Trump threatens to shut down the federal government over border wall funding, there have been some shake-ups in the White House. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will resign as he faces at least 17 federal investigations into suspected ethics violations. A former fossil fuel industry lobbyist, David Bernhardt, will become the interim interior secretary. Meanwhile, Trump has tapped Mick Mulvaney to become acting chief of staff to replace Gen. John Kelly. Mulvaney already holds two posts in the administration: White House budget director and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. And in Texas, a federal court has declared the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate unconstitutional, setting up a likely challenge at the Supreme Court. We are joined by longtime consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader. He is author of the new book "To the Ramparts: How Bush and Obama Paved the Way for the Trump Presidency, and Why It Isn't Too Late to Reverse Course."

    • Indictment of Sitting President May Be 'Only' Means to Ensure 'Equal Justice Under Law'

      So long as there is a prospect for the issuance of a pardon by a Vice President once he/she becomes President, or the expiration of the statute of limitations while a President remains in office, the indictment of a sitting President may be the "only" constitutional means for ensuring "Equal Justice Under Law". That conclusion, of [...]
