The immorality of US hegemony with Ron Paul

We have a big interview for you this week. Ron Paul came on the show to discuss the multitude of corrupt practices that hold up the USA. Lee and Paul discuss the military industrial complex, the impending economic collapse, and the persecution of Julian Assange. But before the interview, Lee opens the show with fearmongering stories from the New York Times. He goes paper-shredding on their coverage of the coronavirus and a patently false story about how Bernie Sanders isn't bringing new voters into the Democratic Party.

Anders Lee finishes off the show by fact-checking the fact-checkers on one of the many stupid stories our corporate media chooses to focus on instead of discussing important issues. Michael Bloomberg's campaign released a video that had been altered with cricket sounds after he made the comment that he was the only candidate on the stage who had started a business. So, were there crickets on stage? There are two answers: No and "Why are you wasting your time with this story?"

‘Medicare For All’ could save lives & billions of dollars

A new Yale study says what we already knew about universal healthcare – it’s a lot cheaper than the for-profit healthcare system and saves a significant number of lives. Lee looks at the forces keeping our horrific system alive. In ‘Taking The News From Behind’, Lee covers how the state of Georgia is in two legal binds, with Greg Palast and Abby Martin, the Boy Scouts of America went into bankruptcy amid their child sex abuse scandal, and the New York Times declared the “end of Australia as we know it” because of the climate crisis. Natalie McGill takes a look at the unequal distribution of subsidies the Trump administration released to struggling farmers in the wake of his trade war with China. Anders Lee reports on how the field of economics consistently fails to address the structural cause of the problems it analyzes.

The Democratic primary is wild

Lee "shreds some paper" at the top of the show. He takes apart a front page of the Washington Post that is filled with hyperbole and vitriol, including an attack on Trump for being too supportive of Chinese President Xi Jinping. China is facing the coronavirus pandemic and it seems like a great time to be sympathetic to them. After all, Trump started a trade war with China in his early days as POTUS.

Many fear the Democratic primaries will continue to devolve into chaos as the establishment tries to stop Bernie Sanders. Lee sat down with Sanders' former national political outreach coordinator, Nick Brana, to understand what's happening now and where it might lead. Nick is one of the founders of the Movement for a People's Party. He wants progressive voters to break away from the DNC. Naomi Karavani finishes off the show by diving into some of Mayor Bloomberg's more offensive and misleading recent tweets.

Who is Pete Buttigieg anyway?

Buttigieg appeared on the national stage out of nowhere during the 2016 election for DNC chair. Now we’re being told he’s a front-runner in their primaries. His deep connections with US intelligence might help explain his success. In ‘Taking the News From Behind,’ Lee follows the drama and technical glitches in the DNC primaries so far, he lets Bloomberg expose himself as a racist, and he gives a positive update from Julian Assange in London. Anders Lee reports on how the US justice system is failing to bring the wealthy and corporations to justice. Instead they’ve been making show trials of B-list celebrities to create the perception that they’re doing their job. Naomi Karavani finishes off the show on the suppression of graduate student unions.

Direct action against animal abuse (with Wayne Hsiung)

Our guest today is Wayne Hsiung, a lawyer and co-founder of Direct Action Everywhere, who is currently facing felony charges for recording animal abuse across the country. Anders Lee reports on a little-known story from American history in which a small group of plutocrats attempted to overthrow the government. Their big mistake was trying to bring the patriotic General Smedley Butler into their conspiracy. And Natalie McGill caps off the show by fact-checking a Trump administration official’s response to the story that her boss was trying to cut Medicaid.

The state of bipartisan sickness, the DNC’s Iowa debacle, Trump’s racist ‘travel’ ban

Donald Trump made his third State of the Union address this week and despite the recent impeachment drama with the DNC, there’s still a lot of bipartisan support for the terrible actions of our government. Lee watched the speech and found several points of agreement between the parties on issues such as the US’ prison-industrial complex and our foreign interventions. The Iowa caucus debacle, Brexit, and the Kentucky gun rights protests are covered in ‘Taking The News From Behind’.

Trump has shifted his ‘Muslim Ban’ into a ‘Travel Ban’ affecting several African nations. Naomi Karavani reports that it will now include Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan, and Tanzania. However, immigrants with enough money will be able to pay their way around it. Natalie McGill finishes off the show with the story of how telecom companies are taking advantage of Ajit Pai’s net neutrality repeal.
