10/14/19 Ramzy Baroud on Israel’s Torture and Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians

Ramzy Baroud joins the show for an update on Israel and Palestine. He wants to dispel some common misconceptions about Israel, starting with the fact that the country didn't even exist before 1948, while Palestine has a history that goes back thousands of years. Today, Israel is commonly held to be the sole bastion of civilized liberal democracy in a sea of primitive radical Islamism, but Baroud says this too is incorrect. While Israel might be more advanced by certain metrics, they purposely obfuscate aspects of their government, like institutionalized torture of Palestinians and the history of ethnic cleansing, that we should all recognize as barbaric and medieval. Discussed on the show: "Palestinians Face Torture in Israeli Administrative Detention" (Antiwar.com Original) "71 more Gaza protesters injured, 33 by live fire" (Mondoweiss) Ramzy Baroud is aUS-Arab journalist and is the editor-in-chief of thePalestine Chronicle. He is the author ofMy Father Was A Freedom Fighter: The U...

Episode 325: Examining The ‘Satanic Panic’ of the 80s w/ Paz from The Gaslight Hour

60 Minutes Adult Themes Pete asked Dexter de la Paz from the Gaslight Hour podcast to come on the show and talk about the "Satanic Panic"of the 1980s. It seemed that every violent crime (and a lot that were just made up) was blamed on devil worship. Pete and Paz go over cases that turned out to be false, and one that is never talked about that could be relevant. They finish by talking about, of course, the Jeffrey Epstein story that has been buried by the MSM.

10/14/19 Ben Freeman: How the UAE Wins in Washington

Ben Freeman joins Scott to talk about his new study on the Emirati lobby, which wields enormous power in Washington D.C. The UAE generally has a good reputation in America, usually being associated with glamor, cosmopolitanism, and vast oil wealth. In reality, their government—corrupt like Saudi Arabia—isn't afraid to use torture and child soldiers, and is every bit as responsible for the genocide in Yemen. The reason for this difference in perception, says Freeman, is that the UAE has a huge lobby that spends millions on their public image, in addition to paying for influence in nearly every congressional office in Washington. Discussed on the show: The Emirati Lobby: How the UAE Wins in Washington "In Yemen's secret prisons, UAE tortures and US interrogates" (AP News) Foreign Agents Registration Act Ben Freeman is director of the Foreign Influence Transparency Initiative with the Center for International Policy.

10/14/19 David Stockman on the Media and Establishment Hysteria over Syria

David Stockman discusses the outrage that has followed President Trump's movement of a few dozen troops out of northeastern Syria. Stockman is quick to clarify that this is not even a withdrawal of troops, just a relocation from one part of the country into another, safer area. With this much hand-wringing from the mainstream media and the Israel lobby, how could Trump ever actually end a war? Scott and Stockman agree that the situation certainly looks grim, but remind us that Trump really does seem to have a knack for popular politics, meaning that he might realize his best avenue toward a second term would be steadily withdrawing U.S. troops around the world between now and the election. Discussed on the show: "Bravo Donald! A War Washington Might Finally Leave" (Antiwar.com Original) "Can Israel trust the U.S. after Syria withdrawal?" (Jerusalem Post) "Sen. Lindsey Graham calls troop withdrawal from northern Syria a ‘nightmare for Israel’" (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) "Israel un...

10/11/19 Joe Lauria on The New Yorker’s Partisan Disinformation on Biden and Ukraine

Scott interviews Joe Lauria about his recent Consortium News piece calling out the failures of The New Yorker's Jane Mayer and the rest of the mainstream media's "investigative journalists" to actually do any investigative journalism with respect to the Ukraine impeachment inquiry. Lauria points out that at the very least, Joe Biden is guilty of a level of nepotism that should be totally unacceptable—and he recently even admitted this himself. But Lauria also reminds us that the Obama administration backed a neo-Nazi coup in Ukraine in 2014, and then placed multiple friendly Americans in high-level government and business positions. Mayer's "investigation" points none of this out, opting instead to dismiss all concerns as wild conspiracy theory. Like "Russiagate" before, she and the rest of the mainstream media show little interest in discovering the truth behind "Ukrainegate", happy instead to let their own partisanship get in the way of what should be their jobs. Discussed on the...

The Borg Freaks Out guest Joanne Leon

Foreign Policy Focus and Around the Empire's latest swapcast covers the borg's meltdown because some US troops are leaving Syria. Joanne and Kyle recap what has happened in the past two weeks in Syria. The US announced pulling some troops from the Turkey/Syria border. In response, Turkey carried out its long-threatened invasion of Syrian Kurdistan. The Syrian Kurds then cut a deal with Assad, brokered by Russia, to move in and prevent the Turkish invasion. Trump finally announced all US troops in northeast Syria are withdrawing. The foreign policy establishment has condemned the move by Trump as betraying the Kurds and helping ISIS. The borg has failed to accept any responsibility for the position of the Kurd. It was Obama's establishment-approved Syria policy that created the problem for the Kurds to begin with.
