This week's guest is author and law professor Dan Kovalik; he speaks about US interventions 
around the world, past and present, and the cost Americans pay to maintain the gigantic US military machine. 
 
Dan Kovalik is a retired labor-union attorney, and now teaches at the University of Pittsburgh Law School.
He is also a prolific author, and has recently had four books published on the Skyhorse label, all dealing with 
US interventions around the globe. 
In this week's program, we hear a speech given in 2018 by Mickey Huff as part of 
the annual Social Justice Week lecture series at Sonoma State University in California.
His topic was "Fake News and the Truth Emergency." In his speech, he took note 
of the deep historical roots of the concept of 'fake news,' including the origins 
of public relations in the early 20th century with Edward Bernays. 
Authors John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski are the guests for the hour; to speak about their recent book
The Watchdogs Didn't Bark. The product of years of investigation, it begins with the questions: why were
two of the September 11 hijackers, already in the US and on the FBI terrorist watch list, not apprehended 
long before the attacks took place, and why was no one in the US government held accountable? 
The authors find the answers in a complex web of spy agency rivalries and coverups.

for neglect of 9/11 first responders' illnesses. Finally, "flag burner" Joey Johnson

of the world's wealth, and wield the political power that these riches confer.

Author and history professor Andres Resendez speaks about "the other slavery" -- the enslavement 
of millions of Native Americans from the time of Columbus to the 1900s, a subject often overlooked 
in history curricula. Resendez spoke in Berkeley, CA in April 2017; Mickey Huff was the host of that event. 
This program includes Resendez' speech, and part of the question-and-answer period that followed. 

 
Notes:
 
Andres Resendez' book, "The Other Slavery," was published in 2016 by Houghton-Mifflin. 
It is also in paperback from Mariner Books.  
Co-host Chase Palmieri takes a turn as a guest, to explain his latest project - www.credder.com.
On this site, readers can evaluate news stories, thereby creating a rating system for journalism 
akin to how restaurants are rated by customers on Yelp. 


Notes: 

 
Chase Palmieri is the co-host of the Project Censored Show. For the past several years, he has been 
working on an internet-based system for works of journalism to be evaluated by readers. 
He has previously been a guest on the program to explain www.tribeworthy.com, an earlier version of Credder.
The site is planned to go into full operation in late May.
 
On this week's program, we hear a speech by the legendary political activist and consumer-rights advocate 
Ralph Nader. Nader outlines some of the most critical problems facing Americans, including exorbitant military spending, 
out-of-control corporations, and thousands of annual deaths in the workplace, or from lack of health care coverage. 
But then he names some individuals who've made a difference in recent U.S. history, explains what students 
can accomplish on campus, and how voters can hold legislators accountable. Nader spoke on March 5, 2018 at 
Sonoma State University in northern California, as part of the campus's annual Social Justice Week Lecture Series.
