While We Obsess over Russia, Trump's Polices Are Ushered in Without a Significant Fight
Guests on the show: Diana Best (Greenpeace), Abby Martin (The Empire Files), and Rou Reynolds (Enter Shikari)
Donald Trump escalates his war on the planet with his “Energy Independence” Executive Order. Trump’s order rolls back President Obama’s Clean Power Plan. Let’s call it the Donald Trump Dead Planet Plan. Diana Best, a Greenpeace energy campaigner who is charged with halting the social influence of the oil industry during Trump’s administration, joins me on the podcast to break down the meaning and scale of this administration of Climate change deniers, the significance of Trump not stepping away from the 2015 Paris Agreement, and the diversity of tactics required to fight back.
John Kiriakou, an ex-CIA analyst and whistleblower who exposed the Bush-era torture program and served 23 months in federal prison joins me for the interview on the podcast. The author of The Reluctant Spy: My Secret Life in the CIA’s War on Terror tells me:
“I have been wrong on this issue for the past six months or so where I have gone on a myriad of news outlets and said that I'm just not seeing any evidence of Russian hacking, and if there had been Russian hacking, what exactly is it that we're accusing the Russians of doing?
The Climate Change Denier and head of the EPA Doubles Down
In remarks would be stunning coming from the mouth of anyone with a middle school science education—to say nothing of the current head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Pruitt continued his long history of flouting the facts in an interview with CNBC host Joe Kernen on Thursday saying that carbon dioxide emissions are not a major contributor to global warming.
Was Donald Trump’s joint address to Congress a tale told by an idiot—full of sound and fury—signifying nothing?
Or rather, is it possible that it did signify quite a bit. This is not a dream, or a Shakespearean metaphor, we are not binge watching a reality TV show.
What Trump said, what he meant, and what it means for you, today on a Trump Show.
Bannon and Trump: Make America White Again.
At CPAC, shit is getting crazy. We’ll Discuss. ALSO: Why is Rachel Maddow—perhaps the most respected pundit of the liberal main stream media, going all full Red Commie Scare Joe McCarthy with her Russia obsession when even MSNBC “experts” claim there is no there, there?
Today in North Dakota the last remaining water protectors at Standing Rock face a 2pm deadline to vacate the camp.
On the podcast today, I interview Standing Rock Sioux member, Chase Iron Eyes. Iron Eyes is a Native American activist, attorney, politician, and a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Additionally, Chase is a member of the Lakota People's Law Project and a co-founder of the Native American news website Last Real Indians
Donald Trump was on the ropes. For the first 4-weeks of his Presidency, Trump—and his administration—have been on the receiving end of a barrage of well-deserved body blows from the media. However, in Donald Trump’s Epic 77-minute rant that was the twitter troll predator in chief’s first solo news conference, Donald came out swinging.
Love him or hate him—and to be clear, I hate the guy—Trump won the day yesterday.
The questions we explored on yesterday’s show—What did Trump know and when did he know it— remain unknown today.
While many on the left line up behind the admittedly attractive and seductive narrative that Trump has colluded with our decade's old bogeyman, David Swanson, who joins me for the interview today, will have you hitting the pause button.
