Short Description: 
Alfred McCoy on Obama's Geopolitical Strategy for Containing China from TUC Radio

The historian Professor McCoy is an expert on U.S. foreign policy, the Philippines, Southeast Asia; global drug trafficking; and CIA covert operations.

He teaches at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and his September 2015 piece in Tom Dispatch Grandmaster of the Great Game: Obama's Geopolitical Strategy for Containing China, stands in total contrast to the current views of media pundits as well as the Republican party.

They see Obama as weak, clueless, and indecisive in matters of foreign policy. McCoy provocatively places Obama among the limited number of presidents and public figures whose geopolitical skills - if he is allowed to succeed - will have transformed America s global role.

In Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America, historian Richard White tells the story of corporate misconduct, incompetence and greed surrounding the construction of the transcontinental railroads that changed America. White reconstructs the convoluted paper trail that enriched Gilded Age capitalists and triggered three economic crisis in the late 19th century." Dave Mazza hosts.

Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Thu, 07/21/2011

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher interviews Sarah Sobieraj, author of Soundbitten: The Perils of Media-Centered Political Activism.

Sobieraj explores the dynamics and costs of media obsession by activist groups.  She says the pervasive mediatization of politics has jeopardized the ability of dissenting groups to engage in public discourse and so has altered the very fabric of both social movements and the civil society that the news media claim to inform.

Her book is an ethnographic portrait of fifty diverse organizations over the course of two presidential campaign cycles. She argues that while most activist groups equate political success with media success and channel their energies accordingly, their efforts fail to generate news coverage and come with deleterious consequences.

Arthur Stamoulis talks about the Columbia Free Trade Agreement

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 07/11/2011

Arthur Stamoulis of Oregon Fair Trade Campaign talks about the demonstration planned for Congressman Earl Blumenauer's Office on Monday, July 11 * 12:00 noon at 729 NE Oregon St (Near the 7th Avenue MAX Station)

Fifty-one union leaders were assassinated in Colombia last year — more than in the rest of the world combined. At least 17 have been assassinated so far this year.

As the Colombia Free Trade Agreement races towards a vote in Congress, our elected officials will be forced to pick a side.  Will they stand with union members, small farmers, human rights advocates and others in the United States and Colombia who oppose the FTA?   Or will they stand with the transnational corporations who profit off the violent suppression of workers' rights, the forced displacement of Afro-Colombians from their land and the dumping of subsidized agricultural commodities?

So far, Congressman Earl Blumenauer is "undecided" on the Colombia FTA.
