SPECIAL REPORT: Can There Be Food Justice Under Capitalism?



SPECIAL REPORT: Resistance Round Table – Feb. 10, 2018






Award-winning Investigative Journalist Robert Parry (1949-2018)

Award-winning investigative journalist and founder/editor of ConsortiumNews.com, Robert Parry has passed away. His ground-breaking work uncovering Reagan-era dirty wars in Central America and many other illegal and immoral policies conducted by successive administrations and U.S. intelligence agencies, stands as an inspiration to all in journalists working in the public interest.

Robert had been a regular guest on our Between The Lines and Counterpoint radio shows -- and many other progressive outlets across the U.S. over four decades.

His penetrating analysis of U.S. foreign policy and international conflicts will be sorely missed, and not easily replaced. His son Nat Parry writes a tribute to his father: Robert Parry’s Legacy and the Future of Consortiumnews.

"It's fair to say that we have a racist president. So then, the place to place our attention is on those who surround him. Those who have the power to check and balance his presidency, to direct it in a better way. Or, if necessary, to initiate the steps that must be taken to remove him from office."

– John Nichols, national affairs correspondent with the Nation magazine and author, discussing President Donald Trump's controversial repeated use of "shithole countries" comments in a meeting on immigration

Trump's Racism Drives White House Policy

MP3 Interview with John Nichols, national affairs correspondent with the Nation magazine and author, conducted by Scott Harris

racist

After Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois and Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina indicated that President Donald Trump had referred to Haiti, El Salvador and nations in Africa as “shithole countries” during a White House meeting to discuss the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA on Ja. 11, a firestorm of criticism erupted. Civil rights veteran Rep. John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, declared that Trump was “a racist,” The United Nations, the African Union and dozens of other officials across the U.S. and around the world followed with their own condemnation.  Story continues

Donald Trump's State of Mind: A Clear and Present Danger

MP3 Interview with Dr. Bandy Lee, assistant clinical professor in law and psychiatry at Yale University's School of Medicine, conducted by Scott Harris

mental

During his presidential campaign and the last 12 months of his presidency, grave questions have been raised about Donald Trump’s mental health and stability. In the estimation of many mental health professionals, both his rhetoric and decisions made have called into question his fitness for office. While there certainly is room for debate on the difference between an individual’s idiosyncrasies and a serious mental health condition, there is no dispute regarding Donald Trump’s penchant for lying.  Story continues

Indigenous-Environmental Coalition Opposes Minnesota Line 3 Tar Sands Pipeline

MP3 Interview with Mysti Babineau, pipeline opponent and member of the Red Lake band of Chippewa in Minnesota, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

pipeline

Many activists and media outlets across the U.S. remain focused on the controversial revived Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, which in late November received final approval for construction from Nebraska state regulators, albeit with a very different route than the one the company wanted, so it’s unclear if it will ever be built.  Story continues
