This Week In Palestine: Criminalizing Dissent: UMassAmherst Autumn Conference (part 3 of 3): Shaun King and panel discussion, Segment 1

4 days 7 hours ago
Today we finish our coverage of the November 12, 2019 Criminalizing Dissent Conference held at Umass Amherst. This was an enormously important conference, held despite the fact that the Zionist lobby as well as University officials tried to stop it from even happening. They were not successful, and with the help of a court order, the conference proceeded. The auditorium was packed, as was a similar conference held in the Spring of 2019, and as you will hear, this one was also challenged by audience hecklers, who were were expertly handled by the panelists. This was an important moment in the conference and we have not edited it out. This morning you will first hear the presentation of organizer Shaun King, and then the closing panel discussion with all the participants whose speeches were presented in our two preceding broadcasts. The panel consisted of Linda Sarsour, Tim Wise, Cornel West, Dimi Khalidi, and Shaun King.

The Wringer: CIA War Powers Resolution Allows War, Segment 1

5 days 1 hour ago
“You have to understand Slotkin is CIA. This is, sort of, the CIA’s War Powers Resolution backed up by Pelosi and the rest of the hardcore Democrats. Slotkin served as a CIA analyst and as a Department of Defense official. The resolution it’s riddled with so many holes that it really doesn’t restrain Trump from doing anything. However another resolution was just unveiled by Ro Khanna and supported by Berrnie Sanders. Having read through it, in Boyles opinion this resolution is fully consistent with the War Powers Clause of the constitution, the War Powers Resolution of 1973, and the UN Charter. This resolution stands a chance to actually limit the Presidents War Power and bring the decision of declaring war back to the Congress where it belongs according to the constitution.
