David Irving is a British Author, and a revisionist historian who denies the Holocaust ever happened. Irving's reputation as a historian was widely discredited after he brought an unsuccessful libel case against the American historian Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin Books in 1996. During the trial, an English court found that Irving was an "active Holocaust denier",as well as an anti-semite and racist, and that he associates with right-wing extremists who promote neo-Nazism. David Irving has a speaking engagement planned for Portland on July 19th. There is a call by Rose City Antifa to shut the event down. Tonight on Circle a Radio, we talk to Eric Ward, of the Center for New Community, who gave a witness statement in the Irving v. Penguin trial.

Over 75 percent of Americans want health care reform according to a new Pew Research poll. President Obama remains committed to reforming our health care system this year.
