Phil Weiss of Mondoweiss.net talks Israeli occupation of Palestine and why so many American Jews, particularly on the political left, are willing to go along with it. In large part, he explains, it’s because the collective memory of Jewish persecution is too raw to conceive of Israel as an aggressor. There’s also a lot of influence from the Israel lobby in the democratic party, so average voters just toe the line. Weiss sees reason for optimism in Trump’s presidency, however, because it may allow liberals to credibly oppose his policies in support of Israel.

Airwars reporter Oliver Imhof joins Scott to talk about all the Iraqi casualties from coalition drone bombing and artillery strikes.

Sheldon Richman joins the show to talk about Khaled Al Sabawi, and his attempt to provide current property titles to Palestinians on the West Bank, the many abuses of the Palestinians at Israeli hands, including displacement through settlements on the West Bank and even targeted killing of civilians, both of which the Israeli government does with impunity. Richman explains that the Palestinian Authority is just an enforcer of these policies, and is often complicit in carrying them out. Finally, Scott and Sheldon discuss Western sympathy for the plight of the Palestinians and why it’s often lacking.

Cato Institute Senior Fellow Ted Galen Carpenter joins Scott to talk Venezuela, Russia, and the United States’ penchant for supporting brutal regimes. Though government officials like to talk a big game when it comes to freedom and democracy, they mostly only support those things when it’s in their political interest—otherwise they’re perfectly happy to put up with tyranny and hope Americans don’t notice. Carpenter fears that the growing turmoil in Venezuela may be yet another opportunity for military intervention by an American president.

Discussed on the show:

Ted Galen Carpenter is a senior fellow for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute. Carpenter has written 10 books including “America’s Coming War with China: A Collision Course over Taiwan” and is a contributing editor at The American Conservative Magazine and the National Interest.

Brian McGlinchey talks about his 302-538-3324 with retired FBI agent Ken Williams, the author of the ignored “Phoenix Memo” that may have prevented 9/11 had it not been ignored, regarding the 9/11 victims civil lawsuit against Saudi Arabia. “Kenneth Williams was told by the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel not to cooperate with attorneys representing 9/11 victims in their suit against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia because it could harm US – Saudi relations.” William was later told the Trump White Houses’s pursuit of warm relations with kingdom comes first.
