Featured Guests:

  1. Chip Berlet, a former analyst with Political Research Associates, who has written about racism and intolerance for over 4 decades. Co-author with Matthew N. Lyons of the book, “Right-Wing Populism in America: Too Close for Comfort,” Berlet will discuss the 2016 election campaign and many of the points raised in his recent article, “Corporate Press Fails to Trump Bigotry”, and the links between xenophobic, racist political rhetoric and the real world violence it has produced in America and around the world.
  2. Citizen activist, author and four-time independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader, talks about the scheduled opening this week of The American Museum of Tort Law in his hometown of Winstead, CT, dedicated to the understanding of the U.S. Civil Justice system and the critical role it plays in protecting the health, safety and personal freedoms of all American citizens. Ralph will also comment on the latest developments in the 2016 presidential campaign.
  3. Rena Seinzor, Professor at the University of Maryland School of Law, discusses the U.S. Dept. of Justice decision not to criminally prosecute General Motors executives for their failure to disclose the installation of defective ignition switches into over one million GM vehicles which resulted in the deaths of 124 people.
  4. Matt O’Connor, Communications Coordinator with AFT Connecticut, (the American Federation of Teachers CT,) talks about the recent NLRB recommendation to invalidate the results of a June 19th union election at Danbury and New Milford Hospitals because of unlawful interference with employees’ free choice by managers and outside anti-union consultants hired by the Western Connecticut Health Network (WCHN). He’ll also discuss the larger issue of how federal rules relate to employer anti-union activity — and plans for a new election in New Milford and Danbury.

10 PM: Writer’s Voice: Francesca Rheannon

Marcel Theroux talks about his new novel Strange Bodies. It’s a fantastic multi-genre romp — part sci-fi, part thriller, part disquisition on literary immortality.

Featured Guests:

  1. Phyllis Bennis, director of the New Internationalism project at the Institute for Policy Studies and author of the new book, “Understanding ISIS and the New Global War on Terror, A Primer.” She assesses the recent Congressional vote that avoided formal rejection of the Iran nuclear deal and the potential ripple effects in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and Lebanon — as well as the flood of war refugees fleeing to Europe.
  2. Russell Mokhiber, editor of Corporate Crime Reporter, discusses his views on reported changes at the U.S. Dept. of Justice, where going forward there will be more focus on holding individual corporate employees accountable for corrupt behavior, rather than the corporation as a whole. He’ll address the contributing factors that have led to America’s corrupt corporate culture where many powerful executives believe they operate above the law.
  3. Allan Nairn, an award-winning U.S. investigative journalist is well-known for his coverage of the East Timor struggle for independence, having been beaten and imprisoned by the Indonesian military along with Democracy Now host Amy Goodman when they witnessed a massacre of East Timorese civilians in 1991. Over the years Allan has reported on U.S. foreign policy in Guatemala, El Salvador and Haiti, where Washington has supported dictators, death squads and torture. Reporting from Guatemala, Allan discusses the recent resignation and jailing of President Otto Pérez Molina on corruption charges, his connection as a General in the Guatemalan military to mass murder committed during the nation’s civil war — and profiles frontrunner presidential candidate and comedian Jimmy Morales.
  4. John Humphries, an organizer with the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs and a member of the CT Governor’s Council on Climate Change talks about the mission and progress of the CT Governors Council, as well as CT’s climate protection strategy, resisting new natural gas infrastructure, moving toward renewable energy sources and the Global Warming Solutions Act.
