The climate change countdown continues its ominous advance and inequality grows. But I hope that I can deliver you an unsanitized — but not despair inducing — dose of what’s happening to combat the apparent intentions of the most powerful members of our species to end organized human life on the planet.
The battle is not over yet.
Richard Wolff: The Next Economic Crisis Is Coming
by Lee Camp
Every time I sit down with economist Richard Wolff, he demonstrates why the field of economics is so necessary in the cultural critique of our American empire. In my recent interview with him, we discussed why the thriving economy touted by President Donald Trump hasn’t translated into real gains for the majority of Americans. We also went over what is hidden by the economic indicators that allow the financial industry to celebrate while so many Americans are still suffering.
This week on my free podcast Common Censored with Eleanor Goldfield:
A Pemex Pipeline exploded in Mexico - for a surprising and sad reason. Mexican President AMLO has a plan to address it, but here's a better one.
Detroit is like a ghost of Christmas future for the rest of the US. Recently, a report came out showing it could flip a 180 and be a powerful model for the rest of the country.
A new neo-con invention called “NewsGuard” doesn't think you can handle the truth - so they'll just be guarding you from it.
This week on Redacted Tonight: VIP I sat down with Rory Varrato from Extinction Rebellion NYC. Extinction Rebellion is one of the only protest movements to stop climate change that is not willing to compromise with corporate requests.
The group started their campaign in London toward the end of 2018 with the message that climate change will cause chaos for our species and it could easily lead to our extinction.
I start this week’s episode off with new evidence that shreds the 2017 story that Cuba targeted US diplomats with sonic weapons. It turns out it’s scientifically impossible to do what the US mainstream media claims was done. We also looked at inequality in Canada, the continued Yellow Vest Protests, and feminism in the Military Industrial Complex.

Was Martin Luther King a socialist?
AlterNet | Lynn Parramore
“The Millennial socialists are coming,” declared a June 30 New York Times headline, describing a surprise surge of young female candidates endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America who beat their establishment opponents in primary races in New York and Pennsylvania. No longer is being a socialist considered scary — at least if you came of age after the Fall of the Wall. For many, it’s a breath of fresh air.
Martin Luther King, Jr., if he were around today, would likely be smiling.

Beyond BuzzFeed: The 10 Worst, Most Embarrassing U.S. Media Failures on the Trump/Russia Story
The Intercept | Glenn Greenwald
BuzzFeed was once notorious for traffic-generating “listicles”, but has since become an impressive outlet for deep investigative journalism under editor-in-chief Ben Smith. That outlet was prominently in the news this week thanks to its “bombshell” story about President Trump and Michael Cohen: a story that, like so many others of its kind, blew up in its face, this time when the typically mute Robert Mueller’s office took the extremely rare step to label its key claims “inaccurate.”
