The return of the death penalty, an Iran-China partnership, Trump is coming for the elderly
The US federal government executed its first death row inmate in 17 years the other week after the Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to the case. Lee looks over the grotesque history of execution technology in the US, including Thomas Edison’s experiment with an electrified elephant, and the all-too-common experience of racist false convictions. The Iran-China partnership that was inspired by Trump’s harsh sanctions regime, the corporate media’s negligence on climate change while the worst of it accelerates, and more.
Natalie McGill reports on how the Trump administration’s deregulation fetish is coming for the elderly. They’ve reduced the necessary quality of care and the amount of training required for nursing home staff. Anders Lee and Lee discuss the lead-up to the election as Joe Biden laughably called Trump the first racist president of the US, the optics of Kamala Harris as a potential VP pick, and more.
