Part 1

We begin with the frightening fact that America’s new National Security Advisor is a warmonger who will soon be the most influential person and the closest advisor to Donald Trump who will sit at the apex of all national security information and other input coming into the White House that will shape U.S. policy and Trump’s perceptions which are already as belligerent as they are ignorant. David Rothkopf, a visiting professor at Columbia University and the author of “Running the World: The Inside Story of the National Security Council and the Architects if American Power” joins us to discuss the likelihood of a war with Iran and even the possibility of a nuclear war with North Korea. We assess what the motives of Trump’s biggest donors might be since Netanyahu’s patron and casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson brokered the deal that brought Bolton into the White House from Fox News and how much Fox News and its owner Rupert Murdoch have essentially become the Dick Cheney of the Trump White House in what appears to be a co-presidency of Fox News and the right wing echo chamber and Donald Trump.

Part 2

Then we speak with Fernando Mosqueda, a youth leader at Community Coalition, a nonprofit that works to transform the social and economic conditions in South Los Angeles. He is a classmate and colleague of 17 year old Edna Chavez who spoke so eloquently at yesterday’s March for Our Lives demonstration in Washington D.C. that close to a million attended. He joins us from Washington to talk about the inspiring event at which only high school students spoke, along with the survivors of the latest gun massacre that claimed 17 lives at the high school in Parkland, Florida.

Part 3

Then finally Melody, Itayu and Manny join us in the studio. They are “Dreamers” based in Los Angeles and members of the California Dream Network, the youth branch of the coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights. We discuss Trump’s effort to blame the Democrats for the situation that has 800,000 “Dreamers” Caught in limbo between being able to stay in the only country they know or be deported back to a foreign country. They will make it clear that it is Donald Trump who is holding the “Dreamers” hostage to his demand to build a wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for.
