Katie Halper on Mar 3, 2022

Pulitzer Prize–winning Journalist Chris Hedges warns that “merchants of death are flirting with a nuclear Holocaust. It’s just nuts.” Hedges traces how the arms industry created the mess we’re in today and undermine peace and diplomacy at every turn. He condemns Putin’s actions and also condemns NATO.

Chris Hedges on Why RT Was REALLY Banned

Katie Halper on Mar 4, 2022

On Sunday European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced that RT and Sputnik would be banned by the European Union. Katie asked guest Chris Hedges to comment on the development, given that his own show was on RT America, one of RT’s channels. He explained why “they really hate RT” and also why he chose to do a show on the network. He also predicted he wouldn’t have a job and indeed, on Thursday, RT America announced it was ceasing production, which is no surprise given how it was being banned and sanctioned.

Katie Halper on Mar 5, 2022

While the media and politicians are accusing any anti-war voices of being Putin puppets, Phyllis Bennis, a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, lays out what the anti-war movement should be calling for.

Phyllis Bennis is a fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies, where she directs the New Internationalism project. Her books include Before & After: US Foreign Policy and the War on Terror. In 2001 she helped found the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, and now serves on the national board of Jewish Voice for Peace.
