Fox News garbage, Kamala’s water wars, militarized police

Fox News has a comedy show to compete with Redacted Tonight now. Lee Camp takes on Greg Gutfeld’s new show, which is meant to make right-wingers laugh. As you might’ve guessed, the intellectual credibility of Gutfeld’s opinions are about as funny as the jokes he made to an unamused live audience. He pushes facts that Camp is able to take apart in minutes on this episode. Camp also exposes criminals in the ruling class, shows Vice President Kamala Harris admitting that the US will be fighting future wars over water, and more.

Natalie McGill reports on the transfer of military-grade weapons to local police departments under a 23-year-old Pentagon program. There is no sign that Biden will sign an executive order to curtail the program, and too many members of Congress receive money from weapons contractors to do anything about it. Anders Lee joins Camp to discuss the latest case of police murder in Chicago, where 13-year-old Adam Toledo was shot while his hands were in the air to surrender. They also discuss recent Latin American elections in Ecuador and Peru.

21st century labor organizing, NYPD anti-terrorism unit targets protesters, big data misusing mugshots

Monica Cruz, a labor reporter and anchor with BreakThrough News, sits down with Lee Camp for a conversation on the national landscape for labor organizers in the US right now. Cruz just returned from Alabama where an Amazon union drive recently finished with a loss in the face of a massive Jeff Bezos-funded union busting campaign. The story isn't all bad as workers have been inspired to organize in industries across the world.Naomi Karavani reports on the leaked NYPD report that revealed how they have been using anti-terrorism tactics against peaceful protesters. Although the report is filled with comic gems its implications are heavy. It's obvious the police were using draconian measures across the country over the last summer of racial justice protests and the intimidation helps silence legitimate dissent. Natalie McGill looks into what happens to people's mugshots whether they're guilty or not. Digitized criminal records get dropped on the internet and used by data-mining groups without context around the alleged crimes.

Fighting corporate fascism, Biden’s student debt scheme, COINTELPRO and the Black Panthers

Lee Camp looks into the US’ long history of oppressed people fighting back against their oppressors. The story goes back to the arrival of the ‘Mayflower’ and continues today as our corporate overlords seek to invade the privacy of workers. The capitalist system continues to try and crush the human spirit and turn workers into automatons but we can continue the tradition of fighting back. In ‘Taking the News from Behind,’ Lee takes on many of the facets of life that make living in and sharing a world with the United States a nightmare. He also exposes the propagandists representing the interests of both parties in government and the media.

Natalie McGill reports on the student loan debt crisis. Betsy Devos’ overtly corrupt plans as secretary of education protected the predatory practices of for-profit colleges from oversight. But the Biden administration’s plans protect those profits in a slightly more subtle way by encouraging students to take on debt repayment schedules that will last a lifetime. Anders Lee finishes off the show with new information on the COINTELPRO campaigns against the Black Panther Party, developments in Brazil that would allow Lula da Silva to run for president again, and bad news for human rights attorney Steven Donziger.

The CIA’s domestic target list, Pentagon stops peace in Afghanistan, justice for George Floyd

Lee Camp opens the show this week with a recent report released publicly by the intelligence community to prove how little they are willing to tolerate free speech. Their list of “domestic violence extremists” includes a wide array of groups to be targeted. The real crime of most of these groups is standing in the way of, or simply being opposed to, global capitalist power. In Taking the News from Behind, Camp looks back at how the Pentagon stopped Trump from bringing the troops home from Afghanistan.

Naomi Karavani reports on the current situation in Afghanistan and what the oligarchs who run the US empire stand to lose if America ends the longest war in its history. It isn’t the lives they’re worried about. It’s the contracts, the resources, and the cash. Natalie McGill joins Camp to discuss Derek Chauvin’s trial for murdering George Floyd, and what's missing from President Biden’s $2.2 trillion infrastructure bill.

Debunking economics w/ Steve Keen, the second largest oil spill in US history, the origins of 911

Lee Camp interviews the economics professor and author of 'Debunking Economics,' Steve Keen. Keen's scholarship gives insight into the ways that neoclassical economic models misunderstand climate change. These models, therefore, stop our political institutions from responding to the crisis and provide cover for corporations to continue their polluting business practices. The conversation covers the climate crisis and the continuing failure of modern societies to take it seriously.

Naomi Karavani reports on the second-largest oil spill in US history. The North Carolina oil spill went undetected until two teens stumbled upon it by accident. The company responsible for the spill already had a terrible safety record and managed to keep the story fairly quiet despite the scale of the problem. Anders Lee takes a look back at the racist history of the 911 emergency call system.

Water scarcity, anti-protest bills, Lee Camp standup

Lee Camp covers a solution to global water scarcity from the playbook of Peter Joseph. In ‘Taking the News from Behind’, Camp reports on how the Kentucky Senate wants to make it illegal to swear at the police. Natalie McGill & Camp discuss the rash of anti-protest laws being pushed in state legislatures across the country to target the left. Finally, the show closes out with a clip from Camp’s comedy special, ‘Not Allowed on American TV’.
