    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Matthew Hoh, a Senior Fellow at the Center for International Policy.

    Donald Trump will announce his administration's new strategy for Afghanistan this evening in a primetime address, a decision that could see a deepening of America's longest war with thousands of additional troops being deployed.

    The tide has turned decisively against the far right as 40,000 people rallied in Boston over the weekend to denounce white supremacy and Donald Trump a week after the neo-Nazi attack in Charlottesville. Brian is joined by Nino Brown, an activist with the ANSWER Coalition and a leading organizer of the Stand for Solidarity demonstration that countered the far right so-called "free speech" rally.

    As the debate on healthcare heats up and single payer becomes more popular with people across the country, is the Democratic Party elite trying to sabotage any attempt to put a Medicare for all, single payer system on the agenda? Dr. Margaret Flowers, co-director of Popular Resistance, joins the show.
