    The controversy over Google's censorship of alternative media outlets continues, as the internet giant appears to be attempting to play both sides of the highly controversial issue.

    The police state in America continues to grow, as more departments adopt the use of the controversial "stingray" surveillance system and the Trump administration escalates its war on immigrants by granting local police departments new powers to harass and arrest those suspected of being undocumented. Brian and John speak with Anoa Changa, host of the radio show The Way With Anoa, as well as Aislinn Borsini of the Black Lives Matter movement.

    The high-stakes showdown over the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau intensified today as both Mick Mulvaney and Leandra English declared that they were assuming leadership of the agency today. Dave Lindorff, an investigative reporter and columnist, joins the show.

    In a dramatic turnaround, the leader of Germany's Social Democratic Party has expressed his openness to joining a coalition led by Chancellor Angela Merkel, throwing a lifeline to the embattled leader. Reiner Braun of the International Peace Bureau discusses the significance of these developments.

    New information has come to light about the Keystone pipeline has leaked far more frequently than the company projected. Fred Magdoff, professor and author, joins the show.

    An ally of Manuel Zelaya, the former leader of Honduras who was overthrown in a U.S.-backed coup, appears to have won the country's presidential election. The corporate media is shocked at the result. Chuck Kaufman, the National Co-Coordinator of the Alliance for Global Justice, and Sputnik News analyst Walter Smolarek talks about what the results mean for the US and for Latin America.

    Al Franken returned to the Senate today, John Conyers continues to resist calls to resign and Roy Moore continues to campaign in Alabama despite a mountain of sexual harassment allegations against them. Congress truly has no shame. Daniel Lazare, journalist and author of The Frozen Republic, The Velvet Coup, and America's Undeclared War, joins the show.
