"UNSTOPPABLE": Ralph Nader talk, interview July 26, 2014
Listen to Ralph Nader's 75 min. talk and interview about his new book, "Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State" at Barnes and Noble, Milford, Connecticut. Nader makes a compelling case for left-right alliances on majoritarian issues that progressives and conservatives agree on, acknowledging that individuals feel all too often that they are powerless against the big power structure. He notes that issues such as school prayer, reproductive rights and gun control are issues that the power structure depends on to keep the majority divided. The minimum wage, breaking up the big banks, Pentagon audits, health care, campaign finance reform, corporate tax inversions, Net Neutrality, fracking and GMOs are just a few examples of left-right issues discussed with the audience. He says just a fraction of the left and right – working together – can make a huge "unstoppable" political realignment in passing legislation, despite the "ick factor" of working with those whose other views they don't always agree with.
Listen to Ralph Nader's short interview on current events with Scott Harris before the booksigning.

Will the Slaughter of the Innocents in Newtown Lead to Gun Law Reform in U.S.?
By Scott Harris and Anna Manzo
We produce Between The Lines every week about 25 minutes south of Newtown, Conn., and like people around the world, we were shocked and sickened to hear about the unspeakable slaughter of 20 innocent children and 6 adults that took place Friday at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Read our blog post which includes a variety of articles, featuring both commentary and analysis of the Newtown massacre - including some very powerful personal testimonies from people whose lives were touched by senseless violence and their observations of the lessons we could learn from the children lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"The fact that the president's power to execute foreign nationals or U.S. citizens in total secrecy and without due process has been so systemically entrenched means that there really is no conceivable end to it. If Barack Obama has the authority to exercise this power, that means the next president, whether Republican or Democrat, would have that authority as well."
– Glenn Greenwald, Guardian (UK) columnist and author of "With Liberty and Justice for Some," on the danger of acquiescing to President Obama's self-declared power to order targeted assassinations.

Interview with Glenn Greenwald, author and Guardian (UK) newspaper columnist, conducted by Scott Harris
As a U.S. senator running for president in 2007 and 2008, Barack Obama pledged to end indefinite detention and the rendition of terrorism suspects to other countries, where they often were tortured. The former constitutional law professor also promised to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. As he campaigned four years ago, Obama vowed to govern the country differently than George W. Bush, respecting the separation of powers and not acting unilaterally to extend the power of the executive branch.
Interview with Jamie Henn, communications director with 350.org, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
Bill McKibben, the author of a dozen books about the environment and founder of the grassroots climate change campaign group 350.org, just completed a 21-city tour focused on applying pressure on colleges and universities to divest their portfolios of fossil fuel stocks. McKibben’s “Do the Math Tour” was based on his article in Rolling Stone magazine last summer that explained that no more than 20 percent of the known reserves of coal, oil and natural gas can be extracted and burned if we are to limit the warming of the earth's atmosphere to no more than two degrees Celsius. That's the amount above which scientists predict life on Earth will be dramatically disrupted.
Interview with Frank Hammer, retired United Auto Workers union activist and contributor to Labor Notes magazine, conducted by Scott Harris
In the latest assault on labor rights in the U.S., the state of Michigan’s legislature has passed so-called, “right to work” legislation, which allows workers represented by a union in the public and private sector to opt out of paying union dues. Michigan’s Republican governor, Rick Snyder, has vowed to sign the bill into law, maintaining the measure is pro-worker and will attract jobs to the state. The corporate-backed drive in Michigan is seen by the labor movement as part of a coordinated attack against unions that was launched last year against public employee’s collective bargaining rights in the states of Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana.
