US election ‘integrity,’ 200+ tornadoes, genocide in Yemen
On Redacted Tonight this week, Lee opens the show by taking a look at collaboration between Microsoft and the Pentagon to secure American elections. New viewers of Redacted might be surprised to learn that this scheme will actually undermine American election integrity more than it has already been undermined. Then, Lee dives into the news of the week, including an update on the prosecution of Julian Assange, a rash of 200 tornadoes that have hit the US recently, and electoral victories for the European Green Party.
In the second half of the show, Naomi Karavani and Lee discuss how President Trump is attempting to bypass Congress to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia. Congress has attempted to block support for the genocide in Yemen, but the Trump administration wants to get around those restrictions by declaring a state of emergency. Then, Natalie McGill finishes off the show with a report on how US law enforcement agencies are already using facial recognition software that’s proven to be biased. But grassroots activists and legislators in NYC and San Francisco are fighting back.
