Taylor Report: Iran is defeating virus and Western propaganda, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
Zafar Bangash describes the effect of the COVID-19 epidemic on Iran, where it is quite widespread. Unlike Italy, the Islamic Republic has not written off people over 80. Iran has worked very hard to combat the virus, although US government and mainstream media is displaying a perverse pleasure in the suffering of Iranians, and the deaths of leading Iranian political figures. About 15% of Iranian MPs have been infected. The Islamic Republic has repeatedly called for the removal of unilateral US sanctions, which seriously hamper the ability of Iran to combat the pandemic. The purpose of these economic sanctions is deliberately targeted versus the people of Iran (as well as Venezuela and Syria) to cause the people to overthrow their own government. Yet, the Iranian people are savvy to the class of people in the USA who are deliberately inflicting so much harm upon them.

Sea Change Radio: Rebecca Vallas: Erasing the Hierarchy of Humanity, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
Corona Virus Disease 2019, also known as COVID-19, is spreading, and threatening the lives of the physically vulnerable, including the elderly and people with a variety of preexisting conditions. In response, businesses, cities, and states are shutting down. The entire San Francisco Bay Area, the economic engine for much of California and the rest of the country, has been ordered to "shelter in place," and other areas are considering similar measures. That means countless restaurants, retail outlets, and small businesses are closed. This approach should stop the spread of the disease, but what other impacts will it have? Specifically, what will it do to the economically vulnerable? Today on Sea Change Radio we are talking about poverty with Rebecca Vallas, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. We discuss the potential repercussions of pandemic policy on wage workers, distinguish between a booming stock market and authentic economic health, and talk about the plight of people truly living on the margins like prisoners and the homeless. Finally, we examine the faint possibility of a silver lining, in the way some politicians are proposing economic relief in response to this global crisis.
