Nationwide Effort to Impeach Donald Trump Launches with Petition Drive

MP3 Interview with Norman Solomon, co-founder & coordinator of the online organization RootsAction.org, conducted by Scott Harris

impeach

The first month of Donald Trump’s presidency has been rocked by chaotic White House mismanagement of a series of events, including investigations into the Trump campaign’s links with Russian government officials, the sloppy and unconstitutional roll out of the so-called Muslim ban that was successfully overturned in federal court, the ouster Michael Flynn as national security adviser for lying to the vice president and a constant stream of lies and misinformation coming from both the president and his spokespersons. With the worst public approval ratings of any newly elected U.S. president in modern American history and a burgeoning protest movement that has seen the mobilization of literally millions of people in opposition to the Trump agenda, the situation looks pretty bleak for a president who is supposed to be in his “honeymoon period.”  Story continues

The new rules that went into effect in June 2015, prohibited Internet service providers, including cellular carriers from blocking, slowing down or speeding up online traffic or giving priority to Web services in exchange for payment. This regulatory doctrine, commonly known as Net Neutrality, had been at the heart of political battles since the 1990s.  Story continues

Advocacy Groups Reach Out to Immigrant Communities Fearful of Trump Mass Deportations

MP3 Interview with Fatima Rojas, leader with the immigrant advocacy group, Unidad Latina en Accion in New Haven, CT, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

immigrants

Of all the many opponents of the Trump administration agenda, perhaps the most urgent and vocal is that of immigrants and their allies who protest against Trump's promise to build a wall and deport most or all of the 11 million immigrants here without papers. The recent arrest of a young man in Washington state with legal status under DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, sent a chill through the nation’s undocumented immigrant community – as did the Homeland Security announcement of new orders for stricter Department of Immigration enforcement.  Story continues
