After hearing the toxic rhetoric in the 2010 midterm congressional election campaign, it's more apparent than ever that some Republican politicians and their allies in right-wing media have set a goal to eliminate unemployment insurance, Medicare, food stamps, and the federally mandated minimum wage -- as well as to privatize Social Security.
It's ironic that the super-rich corporations and individuals who bankroll the Republican machine are the very same forces that caused the global economic meltdown by advocating reckless financial deregulation and billions of tax breaks for the nation's wealthiest citizens. But sadly, millions of frustrated voters, angry about obscenely high unemployment and a bad economy, were skillfully manipulated into voting against their own economic self-interest on Nov. 2nd.

Interview with Nir Rosen, author and journalist, conducted by Scott Harris
Upon the conclusion of the recent two-day NATO summit meeting in Lisbon, Portugal, President Obama and European leaders announced their agreement on a timetable that would have the U.S. and NATO countries transfer responsibility for security to Afghanistan's fledgling military and police by the end of 2014.

Interview with Dan Esty, professor of environmental law and policy at Yale University, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
In recent years, China has become the world's leading producer of greenhouse gases -- having surpassed the U.S. in total, though not per-capita emissions. China is also the global leader in green energy technology production -- wind turbines, solar panels, transmission lines, and more -- as it moves ahead quickly to modernize its energy infrastructure. So while it's building a large number of new coal-fired power plants, the Chinese government is also providing massive subsidies to its green energy sector. Those subsidies have drawn sharp criticism from the U.S. and other countries, who say they create an uneven and unfair playing field in the international trade of green technology. Story continues
Interview with Jim Hightower, radio commentator and progressive populist, conducted by Scott Harris
With a major defeat for President Obama and the Democrats in the midterm congressional election, there is no shortage of politicians and commentators offering explanations for the party's historic loss of 60 seats in the House. While many interpret the election result as an angry protest against a failed economy, high unemployment and a, "throw all the bums out" mindset, others say President Obama moved too far to the left. They say that if the president doesn't quickly move to the "right" and adopt parts of the Republican agenda, he will have a hard time winning re-election in 2012. Story continues
