Featured Guests:

  1. Josh Ruebner, National Advocacy Director with the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and author of the book, “Shattered Hopes: The Failure of Obama’s Middle East Peace Process,” discusses his group’s efforts to hold the U.S. Government accountable for its supply of weapons to Israel in the current military assault on Gaza amid widely reported human rights violations and possible war crimes.
  2. Melvin Goodman, director of the National Security Project at the Center for International Policy, who served as an analyst at the CIA for 24 years. Goodman’s two most recent books are titled, “National Insecurity: The Cost of American Militarism,” and “The Failure of Intelligence: The Decline and Fall of the CIA.” He assesses the significance of revelations that the CIA improperly accessed a database used by the Senate Intelligence Committee’s staff investigating the agency’s role in torture of U.S. held detainees — and calls for the resignation of CIA Director John Brennan.
  3. Phineas Baxandall, Senior Analyst and Program Director with the U.S. Public Interest Research Group discusses PIRG‘s support for the “Truth in Settlements Act,” (S. 1898) legislation that will inform the public about the inner-workings of a loophole that often allows companies that pay out-of-court settlements to federal agencies to deduct part of those penalties from their tax bill as an ordinary business expense.
  4. Peter Mathews, a professor of political science at Cypress College talks about his new book, “Dollar Democracy: With Liberty and Justice for Some: How to Reclaim the American Dream for All,” which examines how corporate America and the wealthiest one percent have purchased the loyalty and votes of many American politicians.
