|James Petras has been beret-ted for his habit of speaking unpleasant truths.|
First hour: Sociology professor James Petras has just published a new "state of the empire" overview: The Obama Kerry Hagel Regime: Selling Death and Buying Assassins in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. You'll learn more from it about how the US and the world really works than from a million presidential State of the Union speeches.
James Petras is a Bartle Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghamton University, New York. He is the author of 64 books published in 29 languages, and over 560 articles in professional journals, including the American Sociological Review, British Journal of Sociology, Social Research, Journal of Contemporary Asia, and Journal of Peasant Studies.
Second hour: Freedom-fighter Martin Hill discusses AB 666, a satanic new law aimed at blanketing California with traffic surveillance cameras, and making it impossible to fight tickets issued automatically by the cameras and associated computers...another significant step toward rule by the digital Antichrist, with all human autonomy crushed under its devilish boot. Me, I'm firmly opposed to rounding up all the people pushing red light cameras, drones, etc. and burning them at the stake. That fate would be way too good for them.
