- Lev Golinkin, author of “A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka,” came to the U.S. as a child refugee from the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkov in 1990. He discusses the onging crisis in Ukraine, and the current critical juncture where the Obama administration is considering sending “lethal aid” to Kiev, a move that would certainly contribute to the escalation of a conflict, which increasingly looks like a U.S.-Russian proxy war.
- Jennifer Loewenstein, faculty associate in Middle East Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, assesses the West’s response to the latest atrocities committed by ISIS, President Obama’s request for Congressional authorization for military action in Iraq and Syria – and other observations on the conflict made in her recent article, “Burnt Offering.”
- Former FCC Commissioner Michael Copps talks about the FCC’s recently announced plan to establish “net neutrality” rules to preserve an open Internet under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934, regulating Internet service providers as public utilities.
- David Eisenstein, Treasurer of the “Monstah” Super Political Action Committee, discusses the mission of his new progressive PAC, and how he intends to challenge today’s post-Citizens United, money-driven U.S. electoral politics.
