Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, joins us to discuss Iran. The US and Israel are discussing "other options" when the US does not re-enter the Iran nuclear plan.

Teresa Lundy, principal and founder of TML Communications, a leading public relations, communications, and advocacy firm in Pennsylvania, and business columnist at Metro Philly, joins us to discuss Roe v. Wade. A federal judge has blocked the implementation of the Texas anti-abortion law. Also, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in another draconian abortion law passed in Mississippi.

Dan Lazare, investigative journalist and author of "America's Undeclared War," joins us to discuss Congressional warmongers. The ultra hawkish United States Congress is blocking moves to reset relations with China and adopt a "no first use" of nukes policy. Congress is a major hurdle to peaceful change in the US because they use foreign policy bravado for domestic political purposes.
Caleb Maupin, journalist and political analyst, joins us to discuss US foreign policy. US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to a virtual meeting as the US empire's aggression towards China threatens to spin out of control. Also, the US State Department claims that they are ready to deal directly with the Taliban in what appears to be a de facto recognition of their authority.
Steve Poikonen, national organizer for Action4Assange, joins us to discuss the media. Our hosts discuss the methods that Western media currently uses to propagandize and mislead their readers regarding China. Also, The New York Times publishes a fake news report and continues to spread falsehoods after the information in the article is proven to be incorrect.
John Kiriakou, journalist, author and host of The Back Story, joins us to discuss the CIA's torture program. He argues that Guantanamo prisoner Abu Zubaydah should be released by the Supreme Court. Zubaydah has been held and tortured for many years in violation of US and international law.
Gary Flowers, host of “The Gary Flowers Show” on radio station Rejoice WREJ-AM 990, joins us to discuss militarized police. US police departments have been armed with military weapons and trained in violence by international groups. We discuss whether the police need these weapons and why they are employed against citizens of the US empire. Is the War on Terror coming home?
