Featured Guests:

  1. Jim Lobe, Washington Bureau Chief of the international news agency, Interpress Service and editor and publisher of the Lobelog.com, discusses the firestorm of criticism responding to the letter sent to Tehran by 47 Republican Senators — and the links between the letter’s initiator, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton and neo-con pundit Bill Kristol and big money GOP donors Paul Singer and Sheldon Adelson.
  2. Eva Golinger, a Venezuelan-American attorney, author of the best-selling book, “The Chavez Code,” and founding edtor of the Venezuelan newspaper Correo del Orinoco International. She discusses the current status of U.S.-Venezuelan relations, including evidence cited by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro of a foiled Washington coordinated coup plot — and the Obama administration’s recent imposition of sanctions.
  3. Lizz Brown, a St. Louis-based attorney, political analyst and columnist assesses the current situation in Ferguson, MO regarding the recent U.S. Dept. of Justice report identifying endemic racism as the trigger for much of the anger and protests that erupted last summer after the police shooting of unarmed 18-year old African American Michael Brown, the city’s response — and the recent shooting of two police officers and subsequent arrest of a suspect in the case.
  4. David Swanson, author, activist and host of Talk Nation Radio, discusses his recent trip to Cuba with a delegation organized by Code Pink. He’ll talk about how the Cubans he spoke with are reacting to the move toward normalization with the U.S. — including concerns about opening up the island nation to U.S. corporate investment, and the possible future loss of Cuba’s social contract: i.e.: universal healthcare and education.
