"Washington is really controlled by people who want this Cold War to go on and become bigger. Lots of money is at stake. Trillions of dollars are at stake."

– Robert Parry, author and editor of ConsortiumNews.com, on why spending trillions on the military industrial complex means money's not going to be available for domestic infrastructure, healthcare, education or environmental concerns

[The interviews in this week's program were conducted before the results of the 2016 presidential and congressional elections were known.]

Will Russia's Role in U.S. Election Provoke or Avert New Cold War?

MP3Interview with Robert Parry, author and editor of ConsortiumNews.com, conducted by Scott Harris

russia

[Editor's note: This interview was recorded and produced prior to Election Day.] As the U.S. presidential campaign counted down the final week before Election Day, accusations that Russia was engaged in an effort to manipulate the election results in favor of Donald Trump competed for attention with an 11th hour vaguely worded letter issued by FBI Director James Comey. The letter addressed to Congress stated that investigators would be searching newly found emails linked with Hillary Clinton's aide Huma Abedin found on the laptop computer of her estranged husband, former Congressman Anthony Wiener. A subsequent letter from Comey stated the emails reviewed did not impugn Clinton in any wrongdoing.  Story continues

Obamacare Insurance Rate Increases Prompt Renewed Call for Medicare for All

MP3Interview with John P. Geyman, professor emeritus of family medicine, University of Washington and a former president of the group Physicians for a National Health Program, conducted by Scott Harris

obamacare

One of many October surprises in the 2016 presidential election campaign came in the form of an announcement made by the Department of Health and Human Services on Oct. 24. That announcement forecast that the cost of health insurance under ObamaCare is expected to rise an average of 22 percent in 2017.  Story continues

Climate Activists Brace for Post-Election Fight to Rein in Fossil Fuels Expansion

MP3 Interview with Anthony Rogers-Wright, policy and organizing director with Environmental Action, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

climate

While there were clear differences on climate issues between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, many climate activists were unhappy with both candidates. For some, Sen. Bernie Sanders was the gold standard on climate policy, calling, among other things, for an end to fracking, and for a halt to the Dakota Access pipeline, which is being built through unceded Sioux territory in North Dakota and viewed as a serious setback to reining in greenhouse gas emissions.  Story continues
