10/22/21 William Hartung on the Existential Threat of the Nuclear Weapons Lobby

William Hartung returns to the show for a quick episode about a press release he published at the Institute for Public Accuracy. Hartung describes the current setup of America’s ICBMs. The missiles are spread across the country, sitting on hair-trigger alert. It’s a setup that many experts admit is dangerous, and unnecessary. Yet any effort to roll back the program has been blocked by the Senators who’s states benefit the most from the presence of silos, as well as the companies that build them. Hartung explains what’s at stake if the status quo is allowed to continue.  Discussed on the...

7/30/21 Justin Cornett and Josh Eakle: Mobilizing Tennesseans to Empower People and Limit Government

Scott interviews Justin Cornett and Josh Eakle about their organization, For All Tennessee, which they describe as a lobbying group for the people. Cornett and Eakle target specific reforms that just about everyone in their state can agree on, bringing together moderate liberals, Trump supporters and democratic socialists on issues like ballot access, civil asset forfeiture, police chokeholds, no-knock SWAT raids and excessive emergency gubernatorial powers. For All Tennessee met with great success this year, and they hope to do even better going forward. This episode of the Scott Horton...

5/13/21 Ben Freeman on Saudi Arabia’s Covert Influence in American Politics

Scott interviews Ben Freeman about his research into the Saudi lobby's activity in American politics. Freeman explains that while it's illegal for foreign governments to donate directly to politicians in this country, it's easy to get around these restrictions by hiring firms in the U.S. to make contributions and to lobby on behalf of governments like Saudi Arabia. Freeman has found hundreds of such filings per year, totaling tens of millions of dollars in contributions. He reminds us that all of this activity contributes to painting Saudi Arabia in a positive light while they continue to...

5/13/21 Phil Weiss on the Growing Recognition of Israeli Apartheid

Scott talks to Phil Weiss about Israel-Palestine in light of the violence of the last few days. Weiss begins by pointing out that Human Rights Watch has finally declared Israel to be a single apartheid state. In other words, the two-state solution is dead, and the supposed Palestinian territories are really just occupied Israeli lands. Other human rights groups have echoed this same sentiment. The growing acknowledgement of this fact has helped to fuel recent tensions and violence, says Weiss, but more importantly, it's helping to increase awareness of the plight of the Palestinians. With...

4/9/21 Hassan El-Tayyab on Yemen’s Dire Humanitarian Crisis

Scott interviews Hassan El-Tayyab from the Friends Committee on National Legislation about the effort to end the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Although the Biden administration announced an end to support for "offensive operations" in Yemen, thanks to the Saudi blockade of the Hodedah port, the country is still experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. The UN has estimated that 400,000 children could starve to death in 2021—it's entirely in the power of the U.S. government to stop it. Discussed on the show: "UN Warns 400,000 Yemeni Children May Starve To Death In 2021"...

3/18/21 Brian McGlinchey on the Brutal Realities of Economic Sanctions

Scott talks to Brian McGlinchey about the realities of America's economic sanctions, which many believe are a more humane alternative to outright war. But this couldn't be further from the truth. McGlinchey reminds us that in essence, sanctions mean denying basic goods to a country's civilians in the hope that their government will give in to our demands. This isn't substantially different from terrorism, which by definition involves acts of violence against civilians for political purposes. Even the supposed exceptions for things like humanitarian aid often don't pan out in reality,...
