Lee Camp kicks off the first Redacted Tonight VIP of 2017 with TWO interviews. Lee first talks with New York Times best-selling author Chris Hedges, host of On Contact and columnist for Truthdig. Hedges discusses how Deep State will play out in a Trump presidency. In the second half, Lee talks with JR Havlan, former writer for The Daily Show and his experiences covering political satire and its role in keeping the masses informed.
In this episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, Lee Camp interviews Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges. They jump right into it concerning startling evidence about how the US has become a corporate totalitarian state, compared to the democracy it claims to be.

Hedges also explains just how dangerous it is for leftists to vote for Hillary Clinton, even with the specter of Donald Trump looming in the background. This information is explosive. Enjoy and share.

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has imposed an indefinite no-fly zone over an area in Arkansas recently affected by an oil spill. It’s sparked concern that the Exxon Mobil oil company may be trying to keep the TV cameras away from the scene. RT’s Marina Portnaya reports.
The 16th round of negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) began this week in Singapore. That trade deal has the potential to become the biggest regional free-trade agreement in history, both because of the size of the economies participating in the negotiations and because it holds open the possibility for other countries to quietly “dock in” to the existing agreement at some point in the future.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) today outlined his opposition to H.R. 1540, the Fiscal Year 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in a speech on the House floor. The NDAA contains unprecedented language that would authorize the military to indefinitely detain individuals without charge or trial – including U.S. citizens and those captured on U.S. soil. It also “affirms” that the U.S. is in an armed conflict with Al Qaeda, the Taliban and “associated forces” (that are undefined), setting the stage for permanent global warfare.
