    Nuclear weapons are discussed on the anniversary of the US atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; Trump's 'General' Problem.

    On this episode of "By Any Means Necessary" host Eugene Puryear is joined by Lillyanne Daigle, Deputy Campaign Director at Global Zero and David Swanson is an author, activist, journalist, and radio host, to talk about the anniversary of the US bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the efforts to reduce nuclear weapons around the world, grassroots organizing to gain attention on the issue, and how non-nuclear US military weapon proliferation leads smaller countries to develop nuclear weapons.

    In a special third segment "By Any Means Necessary" host Eugene Puryear is joined by Jefferson Morley, Washington, DC correspondent for Alternet, to talk about Donald Trump's heavy reliance on generals in top administration posts, the politics of the deep-state in the US, and the latest documents released by the US government in relation to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

    Today's talking points touch on how the US Department of Justice will handle forensic science in criminal court proceedings, the dropping of charges in a racist mistake of identity arrest, the usage of SWAT teams in Chicago to handle mental health crises, and an uprising at an Arkansas Prison.
