Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

This Week on Between The Lines

Posted June 26, 2013 for week ending July 5, 2013

"The deployment of 20,000 additional border troops ... you really have to ask yourself, is this necessary? Apprehensions are lower than they've been since 1970; they doubled the number of border agents since 2004 and so there's no crisis. So if there is no crisis, why would you deploy all these troops on the border and then fail to provide any type of oversight or accountability?"

– Keith Rushing, communications director with the Rights Working Group on the militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border

A bi-partisan group of eight U.S. Senators came together early in 2013 to announce their framework for immigration reform legislation that includes a chance for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the U.S. to earn citizenship. Provisions of the bill include a wait of 13 years or more for most unauthorized immigrants before they can become citizens; stringent border enforcement and deportation measures; mandate that employers use an electronic eligibility verification system and requirement that undocumented residents register with the government, pay fines and back taxes.  Story continues

During the six months of President Obama’s second term administration, his appointee, Secretary of State John Kerry has traveled to Israel and Palestine four times over the past three months to try to restart peace talks. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas insists that he won't come to the bargaining table until Israel halts all settlement construction in the West Bank. Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, for his part, insists on negotiations without pre-conditions, even as his government is developing plans for more West Bank settlement construction.  Story continues

Interview with Bartlett Naylor, financial policy analyst with Public Citizen's Congress Watch, conducted by Scott Harris

glasssteagall

A just-released report from Public Citizen, titled “Safety Glass,” marks the 80th anniversary of the enactment of the Glass-Steagall Act, which separated commercial and investment banking in the aftermath of the Great Depression. On June 16, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Banking Act, also known as “Glass- Steagall, that created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The legislation was a product of a negotiated agreement whereby the federal government would guarantee funds deposited in banks in exchange for mandating that all banks sell-off their investment divisions, keeping commercial banking functions like loans made to consumers and businesses, separate from risky investment activity.  Story continues
