Dr. Ken Hammond, professor of East Asian and global history at New Mexico State University, joins us to discuss the US prosecuting its Cold War against Russia and China in Africa. The US is now arguing that a Chinese military base in Africa is a threat to the United States because it faces the Atlantic Ocean. In another example of hypocritical bravado, the US is claiming that it has the right to have over 200 bases in the Asian Pacific deliberately intended to threaten China, but China's single African base is worthy of significant alarm.
John Kiriakou, journalist, author, and host of The Backstory, joins us to discuss the CIA.

Observers are considering whether the incidences of pedophilia and the related cover-ups are indicative of a twisted and perverted culture that could be related to the Epstein intelligence operation.
