"What we're now doing is in effect doubling down, moving equipment into Eastern Europe, training the Ukrainian Army, maybe even arming the Ukrainian Army – all of these things are going to make a bad situation worse.

– John J. Mearsheimer, R. Wendell Harrison distinguished service professor and co-director of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago, on the danger of escalating tensions with Russia resulting from the U.S. deployment of heavy military equipment to the Baltics and Eastern Europe.

U.S. Deployment of Heavy Military Equipment to the Baltics and Eastern Europe Escalates Tension with Russia

MP3 Interview with John Mearsheimer, R. Wendell Harrison distinguished service professor and co-director of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago, conducted by Scott Harris

russia

Growing tensions between the U.S. and Russia went into high gear after Ukraine's elected president Viktor Yanukovych was ousted from power in February 2014, triggering Russia's decision to annex Crimea and provoking the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine between pro-Russian separatists and the Kiev government's army and militia groups. Now, after the imposition of months of U.S. and European economic sanctions against Vladimir Putin's government, a new more dangerous escalation is underway.  Story continues

The Pope’s Climate Change Encyclical Inspires Action Among Religious Communities

MP3 Interview with Rabbi Mordechai Liebling, director of the social justice organizing program at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Philadelphia, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

climatechange

The Vatican's encyclical, Praise Be, or "Laudato Si" in Latin, was released June 18 and focuses on the need for people across the world to take action to reverse global warming, caused by activity. In this long-awaited document, Pope Francis makes an impassioned plea for humans to understand the interconnectedness of all life on earth, to recognize that the poor of the earth are suffering the most from climate change, and that it is humanity's responsibility to address the crisis.  Story continues

As Congress Blocks Restoration of Voting Rights Act, GOP-Governed States Continue to Enact Voter Suppression Laws

MP3 Interview with Nick Nyhart, president and CEO of Every Voice Center (formerly Public Campaign), conducted by Scott Harris

votingrights

June 25, 2015 marked the second anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Shelby County v. Holder case that effectively dismantled the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Since then, 21 states across the nation have imposed new obstacles to voting. These include the establishment of new restrictive voter ID laws, limiting the days and hours for early voting and regulations making registering new voters more difficult. These new electoral regulations ushered in by mostly Republican governors and legislatures disproportionately erode the voting rights of African Americans, Latinos, students, senior citizens and other voters viewed as likely to cast ballots for Democratic party candidates.  Story continues
