A new book states that General Mark Milley was concerned over the possibility of President Trump attacking China and took significant steps to frustrate the possibility of that outcome.

Did Milley also use this opportunity to stop the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan as Trump had ordered?Kathy Kelly, American peace activist, joins us to discuss Pentagon spending. According to recent reports, upwards of 14 trillion dollars was spent by the Pentagon since 9/11. At least half of that sum was sucked up by contractors, with corporate giants such as Lockheed Martin and Raytheon gobbling up the lion's share.Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss US sanctions and China.

Calling in to the FlashPoints News studio from his new New York home, where he is currently under house arrest, rights attorney Steven Donziger talks about his Kafkaesque case with host Dennis J. Bernstein and investigative reporter Greg Palast. Palast has been reporting on this outrageous tale of oil, power, corruption, corporate murder and ecocide since 2007, when he first met one of Donziger's clients, Emergildo Criollo, Chief of the Cofan people, deep in the Amazon rainforest. With the help of Donziger, Criollo had launched a David v. Goliath lawsuit against Chevron for poisoning the rainforest and the people who lived in it — the Chief's two sons being among the many victims of the oil giant's murderous sludge. The Ecuadorian courts ruled in Criollo's favor, finding that Chevron's Texaco operation had illegally dumped 16 billion gallons of deadly oil waste, but that was just the beginning of Donziger's battle. Chevron were ordered to pay Criollo and the other indigenous co-plaintiffs $9.5 billion. Rather than pay up, and to distract attention from their own mass industrial poisoning, Chevron set out to destroy Donziger, to make an example of a human rights lawyer that dares take on the petroleum pirates.

After a lengthy investigation, Amnesty International has found that Israel used "ruthless excessive force" against Palestinian protesters. The international human rights organization claimed that “police used unnecessary and excessive force to disperse Palestinian protests against forced evictions in East Jerusalem, as well as against the Gaza offensive, while Jewish supremacists were allowed to organize demonstrations freely.”

Obamacare once again is saved by the Supreme Court after the Red State assault that would have hurt more of their own citizens. This is not a joke. This is what Texans must live through. A governor and his party that has Texas in a state of disarray. It was just a few months ago when Texas suffered one of its worst freezes ever. Hundreds of Texans died. And it exposed the perils of Texas Conservatism. Governor Abbott and his Republican cronies have done nothing to make the situation better. Texans died from the cold in the winter. Now with the latest communique from ERCOT, they may die from the heat. Bayou City Waterkeeper's legal director Kristen Schlemmer discusses their grassroots efforts and successes to keep waters clean and flood control. Dennis Kucinich spoke about The Division of Light and Power. He was not shy about discussing ethics in our political system. --- If you like what we do please do the following!

Who would have ever thought that it would be one lone Democratic Senator that would finally put an end our democratic voting system? The one person, one vote ideal we've been trying to achieve in this country. Maybe it's time now to make Joe Manchin's name into a verb, as in “Manchining” — as in crippling a structural system of voting. As in, he “Manchined” the voting system, and can you believe it, he's a Democrat? In this week's edition of the Election Crimes Bulletin, Greg Palast and Dennis Bernstein talk about this and other insanities happening in the world of elections.

Rogatyuk explains the political and historical context behind this election and what a Castillo victory would mean for Latin America's “Pink Tide.”In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Technologist and editor of TechForThePeople.org Chris Garaffa to discuss how the hack that took down Colonial Pipeline was traced back to a single compromised password, the negligence of companies in password encryption that makes them vulnerable to these types of breaches, how Amazon's doorbell camera Ring does not make neighborhoods safer despite their inflated claims, and how it is possible to get safety laws passed without the use of privacy-compromising cameras.In the last segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Jared Ball, father, husband, Professor of Africana and Communication Studies at Morgan State University at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD, the curator of imixwhatilike.org and author of the book, “The Myth and Propaganda of Black Buying Power to discuss cryptocurrency and its viability as an alternative form of currency outside of The Market, the implications of Naomi Osaka's stance on avoiding required interviews on the role of corporate media in sports and mental health, the growth of the celebrity activist industry, the implications of the sports media juggernaut Osaka refuses to endure and how that translates to how the media writ large engages with radicals and revolutionaries, how Kwame Brown is exposing the avaricious nature of the sports media complex and is redefining the idea of success in the sports world, and how the current new cold war against China might play out in the coverage of the upcoming Olympics in Beijing.

Alexander Mercouris, editor-in-chief at theduran.com & host of "The Duran'' on YouTube, joins us to discuss "Spygate 2." Reports that the US National Security Agency enlisted the aid of Denmark's intelligence services to spy on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and potentially other European leaders is causing an uproar amongst US vassal states in Europe. Meanwhile, many observers are yawning at the reality that these nations have generally accepted their status as powerless clients of the US empire and are unlikely to do more than complain.Levi Rickert, editor and publisher of NativeNewsOnline.net, joins us to discuss the genocide against indegenous people in Canada. The bodies of over 200 children were found in Canada at a building that was used to strip them of their culture and indoctrinate them into European culture. Observers are using this as an opportunity to revisit the genocide and violence associated with Western imperialism. Mark Sleboda, Moscow-based international relations security analyst, joins us to discuss Belarus. The President of Belarus is talking about the Western attempt to overthrow his government, and is joining a chorus of international voices warning that NATO and the US empire are rapidly dragging the planet towards a third and potentially final world war. Also, Roman Protasevich, the man who was arrested in Belarus from a RyanAIr plane last week was wanted in connection with Ukrainian Nazi operatives, according to Russian foreign policy sources.Greg Palast, investigative reporter, joins us to discuss election issues in the US. A major political struggle has erupted in Texas as GOP politicians introduce a restrictive voting bill and Democrats walk out to halt the process. Also, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) argues that the Democrats must show equal resolve to push through legislation that the GOP opposes.Daniel Lazare, investigative journalist and author of "The Velvet Coup," joins us to discuss Israel. The landscape is shifting, as Washington, DC produced over 35,000 people at a rally on a rainy cold Memorial Day weekend. The leaders of the Democratic party are struggling to deal with a large group of major donors who support the Netanyahu Likud regime, while facing growing opposition in their major voting blocs.Ajamu Baraka, former VP Candidate for the Green Party, joins us to discuss Columbia and Brazil. Brazil is facing a major internal crisis, as the citizens are taking to the streets in large numbers to protest the neoliberal policies of Jair Bolsanaro. Bolsonaro and his US supporters are particularly concerned as the former left leaning leader Lula De Silva seems ready to make a comeback. Also, we discuss how Israel is influencing far-right wing politics in South America, and in particular, the US controlled government of Colombia. Margaret Kimberley, editor and senior columnist at Black Agenda Report and author of "Prejudential: Black America and the Presidents," joins us to discuss the militarism of the US empire. We discuss Caitlin Johnstone's article in which she pushes back against war propaganda and explains her concept of US foreign policy. Also, we talk about Jim Bovard's article about the run up to the invasion and occupation of Iraq.Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, Lebanon, joins us to discuss Syria. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won the Syrian election with 95.1% of the vote. As is normally the case with perceived adversaries, the US condemned the election as illegitimate before the voting process began. Also, does the end of the Syrian war mean that the war torn nation can return to its status as a power player in the region?

Also, the GOP is experiencing a major intra-party squabble as pro-Trump forces battle to expel anti-Trump forces from Capital Hill.Miko Peled, author and activist, joins us to discuss Israel. Israel is experiencing condemnation worldwide for invading a mosque during worship hours and using physical violence against worshippers. Also, the expulsion of families from Sheikh Jarrah may be a violation of international law.Dr. Linwood Tauheed, associate professor of economics at the University of Missouri- Kansas City, joins us to discuss proposed tax cuts. The Democrats are getting major pushback from progressives as they discuss keeping some of President Trump's tax cuts for the rich. Senator Bernie Sanders (I- VT) is arguing that this battle will define the party going forward.Alexander Mercouris, host of "The Alexander Mercouris Show" on YouTube, joins us to discuss international law. Alexander discusses the Atlantic powers' argument that they are enforcing a nebulous suite of unwritten rules which they refer to as the "rules-based order." He argues that the alternative is the written and agreed-upon set of international laws that is ratified by the UN and other international bodies of law.Scott Ritter, former UN weapon inspector in Iraq, joins us to discuss Pentagon policy. Ukrainian officials are claiming that they have been assured of receiving more lethal weapons from the United States. The weapons seem to be more of a money-laundering scheme than a means for defense, as it has been made abundantly clear that Ukraine is massively outclassed by the Russian military machine.Jim Kavanagh, writer at thepolemicist.net and CounterPunch and the author of "The American Farce Unravels: Shreds of January 6th," joins us to discuss Julian Assange. A recent video surfaced in which the president of Azerbaijan reminded a BBC reporter that Western powers are inhibiting freedom of the press by persecuting Julian Assange. Also, The Washington Post is legitimately complaining about the Trump administration getting information about their reporters as they ironically support the deep state assault on Julian Assange.Robert Fantina, journalist and Palestine activist, joins us to discuss Iran. The US is signaling that they are willing to lift most of the sanctions on Iran to return to the JCPOA nuclear agreement. However, Iran is arguing that the US must lift all sanctions related to the agreement and return to the deal exactly as it left.
