Part 1

We begin with an update on the “occupy” movement with Russell Mokhiber, the editor of the Corporate Crime Reporter and author of “On the Rampage: Corporate Predators and the Destruction of Democracy”. We  discuss whether the closure of some of the occupy sites across America will diffuse the movement’s message about how the one percent have bought most of our politicians, who in turn have sold out the ninety nine percent. russel mokhiber

Part 2

Then we look into the latest sex scandal ensnaring Herman Cain’s presidential campaign with a fifth woman coming forth with accusations of a 13 year adulterous affair with the candidate whose exit from the race will benefit Newt Gingrich, a confessed adulterer who has sought redemption from the religious right, the group that dominate the Republican caucus in Iowa. Alternet’s Washington Bureau Chief, Adele Stan joins us. She has been following the Tea Party and their favorite son Herman Cain, who denies the latest charges unequivocally, as he reassesses his campaign. Adele Stan

Part 3

Then finally we examine the apparent repeat of history in Tehran, where this time the British embassy was sacked by so-called students calling it a “den of spies”, this time chanting “death to England”. Dan Brumberg, the author of “Reinventing Khomeini: The Struggle For Reform in Iran” joins us to discuss this violation of International law and assess what the fallout might be as Western powers turn the screws on a paranoid and isolated theocratic regime. dan brumberg
