Francis Boyle brings complaint to the International Criminal Court
Hosts Marvin Simmons, Bill Bires and John Timothy of Northwest Vets for Peace interview Professor Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois College of Law in Champaign. Professor Boyle has filed a complaint with the Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague against George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, George Tenet, Condoleezza Rice, & Alberto Gonzale for their criminal policy & practice of “extraordinary rendition” & torture perpetrated on about 100 human beings.
Professor Boyle's latest book is “Tackling America’s Toughest Questions” (Clarity Press, 2009).
Reality, it seems, has a liberal bias. Abe looks at the results of a remarkable poll, and digs into
A recent poll from Research 2000, commissioned by the Daily Kos, revealed some extraordinary insights into the conservative mind, which were nonetheless completely unsurprising to anyone who's been paying attention for the last, say, 50 years. The survey of 2000 self-identified Republicans tells us that 68 percent either favor impeaching Barack Obama or aren't sure. 63 percent think he's a socialist. More than half either believe that he was born outside the U.S. or aren't sure.
Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this show begins with several discussions of work: how its wages are stolen, why it can be called slavery, whether work is necessary, and the value of "real" work. In the second half of the program, we hear from a human rights activist just returned from Haiti, and Bill Resnick provides an assessment of the Obama presidency and its limitations.
The Old Mole's Bill Resnick surveys a wide range of progressive writers and media for their take on the Obama presidency so far, covering regulatory agencies, finance reform, and foreign policy. It's not all bad. Bill asks whether he could have been all that progressives wanted him to be without being destroyed by the establishment.
