TGIF: Safety Can Be Hazardous to Our Health

crash

Kudos to Glenn Greenwald, a rare leftist voice of sanity on so many issues, for opening his recent article this way: In virtually every realm of public policy, Americans embrace policies which they know will kill people, sometimes large numbers of people. They do so not because they are psychopaths but because they are rational: they assess that those deaths that will inevitably result from the policies they support are worth it in exchange for the benefits those policies provide.

US Escalates Campaign of Aggression Against China On All Fronts

COI_Logo

On Conflicts of Interest #27, Will and Kyle break down a series of recent stories that illustrate ramped up tensions between the US and China, as Washington carries out joint war games with Japan with eyes on Beijing and attempts to build an alliance of Asian states to act as a bulwark against the Chinese. The Trump administration is fighting lawsuits brought by several corporate media outlets, who – ironically – are urging the government to release unredacted materials related to Russiagate after the president tweeted that "all" Trump-Russia documents would be declassified without...

Attempting to Rein in the Killer Cops

On FPF #505, Will Porter returns to the show to discuss efforts to rein in the police. The recent weeks of protests have produced 100s of videos of police murdering and assaulting people. The police have committed these crimes with a very small chance of facing any repercussions. The lawless law-keepers must be restrained if we want to live in a free society. Will and Kyle discuss the new proposed laws and how they can help hold killer cops accountable.  Links Glenn Greenwald on Covid Mike Maharrey on qualified...

Glenn Greenwald Charged With Cybercrimes in Brazil

Breaking in the New York Times. Note that this is the same as Trump's case against Julian Assange: The recipient and publisher of a leak is a co-conspirator with whoever did the leaking. It's a war against honesty in language first and foremost, and it's a threat to the future of journalism here just as it is in Brazil. https://twitter.com/ggreenwald/status/1219688194846883848
