"It was actually the dropping of preconditions in negotiations with Iran that led to the breakthrough of starting to talk to Iran, that in turn led to the breakthrough of having the nuclear agreement with Iran."

– Jon Rainwater, executive director of the group Peace Action, on how U.S. negotiations with Iran to sign the nuclear agreement could provide guidance on initiating talks with North Korea.

Trump Reverses Tillerson's Offer to Talk with North Korea Without Preconditions

MP3 Interview with Jon Rainwater, executive director of the group Peace Action, conducted by Scott Harris

nkorea

Before the Christmas holiday, there was a brief sign of hope that dangerous rising tensions between the Trump administration and North Korea might be about to ease. On Dec. 12, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson issued the following statement at the Atlantic Council in Washington: "We've said from the diplomatic side, we're ready to talk anytime North Korea would like to talk. We are ready to have the first meeting without precondition.” Tillerson’s comments were uncharacteristically conciliatory toward Pyongyang, given the fact that during his first speech at the United Nations in September President Trump had threatened to “totally destroy North Korea.”  Story continues

New Jersey and Several U.S. Cities Moving to Establish Public Banks

MP3 Interview with Ellen Brown, chair of the Public Banking Institute, conducted by Scott Harris

banking

For many Americans, Wall Street and giant U.S. banks are the hated symbol of unbridled greed, which are often implicated in ripping off average workers. For example, Wells Fargo, one of the nation's largest banks, was fined $185 million in civil penalties in 2016 for secretly opening millions of unauthorized deposit and credit card accounts that harmed their customers. Other familiar names in the banking industry, such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup have all been hit with millions of dollars in federal fines for engaging in improper conduct in recent years, including behavior that triggered the subprime mortgage collapse that led to the 2008 meltdown of the global economy.  Story continues

U.S. Media Ignores Link Between Meat Consumption and Climate Change

The focus of the 2017 American Public Health Association annual meeting held in November in Atlanta was public health and climate change. The conference featured panels on various aspects of that topic, some exploring the link between agriculture and climate change.  Story continues
