Full Program



Part 1

We begin by following up on yesterday’s conversation with Simon Johnson, the former Chief Economist at the IMF who called the JOBS bill now before the Senate a colossal mistake of historic proportions. The former Chief Prosecutor of the Savings and Loan banksters, William K Black joins us to detail the disastrous deregulation in this bi-partisan bill. He has an article at the Huffington Post “The JOBS Act Is So Criminogenic That It Guarantees Full-Time Jobs for Criminologists”. bill black


Part 2

Then we look into the apparent murder of a 17 year old boy by a wanna-be cop who was sanctioned by Florida law to carry a concealed weapon with which he killed the unarmed victim. But because of another Florida law, the “Stand Your Ground" law, the perpetrator is able to blame the victim and has so far not been charged with a crime. Ken Adams, a Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Central Florida in Orlando, which is nearby to the scene of the crime, explains how imagining that a crime is taking place can justify homicide.

Part 3

Then finally Nancy Cohen joins us in the studio. She is the author of “Delirium: How the Sexual Counterrevolution is Polarizing America.” We discuss her groundbreaking investigation into the shadow movement that fuels our political wars and the current war on women that Republican presidential candidates, Republican State Legislatures and the Republican House are waging.
