There are people and policies, with names, preventing developing countries from accessing life-saving Covid vaccines. Also today: we are to understand that insurance companies exist to protect us from exorbitant expenses when we’re faced with healthcare crises. Covid-19 could hardly be a bigger public healthcare crisis—and where are insurance companies? Shouldn’t this be their shining hour?
Host Alex Wise interviewing John Stoehr, founder and publisher of The Editorial Board Guns And White Power
Sea Change Radio Available at SC's website cchange.net 2022
The term “civil liberties” may connote different associations, depending on where you fall on the political spectrum. While some connect the term with the struggle for racial justice or reproductive freedom, for others it may evoke a belief in their right to bear arms.

He explains how the violent fervor surrounding so-called 2nd Amendment rights stems from a power structure rooted in white male dominance. He also connects the dots to the impending repeal of reproductive protections and xenophobic approaches to immigration.
Host Jeff Schechtman What the Hell Happened to Police and Criminal Justice Reform? (10/8/2021)
Radio Who What Why (occasional source for TJR) For more from RWWW whowhatwhy.org 2021
The dean of UC Berkeley’s School of Law, Erwin Chemerinsky — author of Presumed Guilty: How the Supreme Court Empowered the Police and Subverted Civil Rights — joins us on this week’s WhoWhatWhy podcast to talk about the legal framework behind criminal justice and police reform, and in addition, to remind us why presidents cannot be above the law. Chemerinsky details the long history of the courts in virtually ignoring the rights of defendants. Often counter to the Fourth Amendment and to the Constitution itself, it is very rare for the courts, either federal or state, to champion defendants’ rights. Chemerinsky explains why it was only the Warren Court, in the early- to mid-60s, that ever made any real effort to protect those rights. For most of our history, things like the right to remain silent (the Miranda warning) and the right of a suspect to have a lawyer and to be protected from illegal search, were not the norm. ...

Today we take another look at the influence of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on American elections and their role to squash any vestige of criticism of Israel. It is largely their role in pouring literally millions of dollars into political campaigns that creates enormous influence on candidates running for office. The message is clear. If you want our money and support, do not cross Israel!
