    1/25/20 Daniel Lazare on the Democrats’ Paranoid Ukraine Fantasy

    1/25/20 Daniel Lazare on the Democrats’ Paranoid Ukraine Fantasy

    Daniel Lazare discusses the ongoing impeachment proceedings against President Trump, which he calls nothing more than a continuation of the Russiagate delusion. He and Scott rehash some of the history that has led America to the point where it even feels like Russia is a serious threat to the U.S., namely the policies of Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama. If your version of history began yesterday, it’s easy to think something must be done in response “Russian aggression,” but if you understand what came before, none of this really looks like Russia’s fault after all. Sadly Trump is carrying on many of the same deleterious policies as cover against the kinds of accusations being leveled at him by the democrats.

    1/24/20 Benje Graves on Evangelical Christian Pro-War Identity Politics

    1/24/20 Benje Graves on Evangelical Christian Pro-War Identity Politics

    Scott talks to Pastor Benje Graves about the dominance of pro-war republicanism among American protestants. Graves says that these Christians think their belief in American empire comes from a good-faith reading of the Bible, but that really it’s wrapped up in an identitarian coalition political movement that uses selective reading of scripture to enforce what they have already chosen to believe. Graves maintains that the U.S. military intervention in the Middle East clearly goes against the teaching of the Bible, and works hard to get his congregation to see that. He even shares stories about the impossibility of missionary work in Asia thanks to a negative view of what America has done there in the name of Christianity. Scott hopes that Graves and others like him can do what Ron Paul did for conservatives during his presidential campaigns, by showing that one’s identity as an Evangelical Christian does not mean supporting interventionist wars.

    1/24/20 Daniel McAdams on the Failure of the Juan Guaido Coup in Venezuela

    1/24/20 Daniel McAdams on the Failure of the Juan Guaido Coup in Venezuela

    Daniel McAdams talks to Scott about the failed attempt to oust Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in favor of opposition leader Juan Guiado. The U.S. government has made many claims about the illegitimacy of the latest elections, and has blamed the country’s current crisis on Maduro’s failures. Really, says McAdams, this is just another example of America’s State Department making false claims and conveniently exploiting existing problems to push their chosen political narrative. Fortunately the attempt seems to have failed completely, with Guaido’s support virtually gone. Sadly, says Scott, many libertarians fell for this narrative as soon as it was positioned as “socialism vs. capitalism”.

    1/24/20 Nozomi Hayase on Glenn Greenwald and the ‘Assange Precedent’

    1/24/20 Nozomi Hayase on Glenn Greenwald and the ‘Assange Precedent’

    Scott talks to Nozomi Hayase about the movement to prosecute Glenn Greenwald for cybercrimes in Brazil. Greenwald is accused of helping to steal confidential text messages, as opposed to simply publishing information that had been hacked by someone else. This is exactly the same accusation being leveled against Julian Assange, says Hayase, but is really just a flimsy pretext for going after journalists that are trying to expose state malfeasance. Scott and Hayase are perplexed as to why mainstream American journalists seem to be so quick to indict people like Assange and Greenwald, apparently not understanding that they are guilty of the very same things.

    1/24/20 Jason Ditz on the Phantom Threat of Iranian Nukes

    1/24/20 Jason Ditz on the Phantom Threat of Iranian Nukes

    Jason Ditz discusses the latest on Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities. Although Iran has talked about abandoning their obligations under both the JCPOA and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, Ditz says they are still so far from having nukes that withdrawing from these agreements doesn’t mean they would actually get nukes. More importantly, Iran is well aware of how quickly the U.S. and its allies would come down on them if they really did try to start producing weapons. In fact the only conceivable way Iran would pursue nukes, says Scott, is if the U.S. had already declared war on them and they felt they needed a nuclear deterrent.

    1/24/20 Dave DeCamp on the OPCW’s Douma Cover-Up

    1/24/20 Dave DeCamp on the OPCW’s Douma Cover-Up

    Dave DeCamp talks about the scandalous apparent cover-up of the OPCW’s real findings on the alleged chemical attack in Douma in 2018. In 2019 the organization issued a final report affirming the likelihood of a real chemical attack. But now Ian Henderson, one of the engineers on the ground in Douma, has come forward to claim that his team was convinced the attack had been staged, contrary to the OPCW’s report. Henderson is quick to defend the organization’s integrity, but believes that in this case political pressure may have compromised them. DeCamp reminds us what exactly is at stake with these lies, citing the fact that the alleged attack was used as justification for the largest U.S. military strike against Syria during the course of the war. The media has covered virtually none of this.
