Featured Guests:

  1. William Binney is a former high-level National Security Agency intelligence official who, after his 2001 retirement after 30 years, blew the whistle on NSA surveillance programs. His outspoken criticism of the NSA during the George W. Bush administration made him the subject of FBI investigations that included a raid on his home in 2007. Long before Edward Snowden’s NSA whistleblowing, Binney publicly revealed that the NSA had access to telecommunications companies’ domestic and international billing records. In this interview he’ll share his views on the strengths and weaknesses of the USA Freedom Act, and the work that he believes still needs to be done to fundamentally change NSA surveillance programs.
  2. Sarah Anderson, director of the Institute for Policy Studies’ Global Economy Project, discusses the fight by labor, environmentalists and consumer advocates to block fast track and the Trans Pacific Partnership free trade agreement examined in her recent article, “Supporting NAFTA Was the Kiss of Death for Democrats—Why Dems Should Think Twice About Voting for TPP,” with a focus on the issues of trade, democracy and corporate power.
  3. Miranda Blue, senior researcher for special projects with People For the American Way and People For the American Way Foundation, assesses the impact of the recent Fifth Circuit Court decision upholding a Texas law that threatens to close down all but a few of the state’s abortion clinics. Blue’s recent article on the court ruling is titled, “The Texas Abortion Decision and the Right’s ‘Women’s Health’ Gambit.”
  4. Kashama Sawant’s election to the Seattle City Council in 2013 made history as the first socialist elected in Seattle in 100 years. As a councilmember, she delivered on her campaign promise to make Seattle the first major American city to pass a $15/hour minimum wage. She discusses the fight for the $15 minimum wage, which was ratified by the Seattle City Council on June 2, 2014, and the ongoing campaign to bring the $15 minimum wage to other cities across the nation, including San Francisco and Los Angeles where both municipalities recently passed their own $15 minimum wage law. This interview was recorded May 31, 2015 at the annual Left Forum conference in New York City.
