Lee Camp breaks down one of the most harmful lies that is being told and retold, that of “scarcity.” In an era of abundance and technological advances, advertising and corporations help reinforce this lie which leaves millions of Americans without basic needs. What will people come up with next to justify not helping the poor, sick, and starving? Then Lee reports on the disappearance of Confederate statues in the South and why people are mourning this loss. Then, we learn Julian Assange is finally cleared of the sexual assault allegations against him, but will he be treated fairly by the US government? As much as everyone is obsessed with the glowing orb, the more important story is about the weapons deal made at the Trump-Saudi meeting. In the second half of the show, correspondent Naomi Karavani joins Lee at the desk to report on a pro-Trump conservative media company, the Sinclair Broadcasting group, which is set to become the largest owner of local news stations in the country. Finally, correspondent Natalie McGill reports on Congress’ recent decision to add hurdles in the form of drug tests to unemployment benefits. This and more on Redacted Tonight.
In this episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, Lee Camp interviews best-selling author, Daniel Pinchbeck, about his new book, ‘How Soon Is Now?’ Pinchbeck really delves into and identifies the present-day existential crisis that humankind if grappling with. He talks with Lee about how, although this is a scary and dangerous time in many ways, there is also a monumental opportunity to make a giant push forward in evolution. Instead of staying on a course that will lead to our utter distraction and extinction, we can, instead, reinvent society in an equitable, regenerative and sustainable way. We can move to a post-capitalist world via a revolution of consciousness. In the second half of the episode, Lee tears into Donald Trump for his continued reckless behavior. This time it’s concerning Trump’s selling of $460 billion of weapons to Saudi Arabia over the next 10 years. Lee points out that Trump is not only continuing to arm one of the most repressive regimes on the planet to the teeth, but that he’s also completely contradicting himself. Lee delves into the tragedy and vicious human-rights violations currently happening in Yemen, led by Saudi Arabia and largely funded by the U.S.

In this latest episode of Redacted Tonight, Lee Camp reveals a foul smelling situation in North Carolina that has implications for environmental justice everywhere. The state’s legislators overrode their governor’s veto of a bill that would make it difficult for residents to sue pig factory farms that literally spray swine feces into the air. The air may be hazy with the stench of pig poop, but the state’s choice of corporate industry profits over their constituents’ health and well-being is crystal clear. Later Lee covers how late to the game the Washington Post is on reporting about the income inequality that Occupy Wall Street protesters have been shouting about for years. In the second half, Correspondent Natalie McGill joins Lee at the desk to reveal the government’s latest strategy of suing the working class to recoup student loan debt, when going after their paychecks and benefits wasn’t enough. Finally, Correspondent John F. O’Donnell shows how MSNBC, corporate America’s left wing media refuge, is now embracing right-wing pundits all in an effort to cater to parent company and evil telecom monopoly Comcast. This and more on the latest Redacted Tonight.

In this latest episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, Lee Camp talks with Dr. William Pepper, an attorney and author of the recent book, “The Plot to Kill King” in which Pepper presents evidence that it wasn’t in fact James Earl Ray who assassinated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis in 1968. Pepper, an attorney who interrogated Ray a decade after King’s death, tells Lee who the real players are behind the shooting. While there was still one shooter, there was a bevy of co-conspirators, including state and federal government officials, who plotted the details of how Ray, who died in 1998, would become the fall guy in an assassination that would spark riots all across urban America. On behalf of King’s family, Pepper brought a civil action suit in 1999 against those involved in King’s death, bringing evidence before the courts that was never brought before the state 30 years earlier—including Ray’s alibi that placed him far from the crime scene. Dr. Pepper’s investigation was not without criticism. Despite violent threats to Dr. Pepper’s family and being lambasted by the mainstream media, the details of his private investigation leave you with no choice but to second guess everything you thought you knew about a death that was a defining moment in the Civil Rights Movement.

In this special extended segment, host Lee Camp delves deep into Net Neutrality, a.k.a. the fight for a free and open internet. Lee explains all of the new pushes by the telecoms and the FCC to undermine internet freedom, one of which is them going so far as to actually call their attempts at crushing internet freedom, you guessed it – INTERNET FREEDOM. It’s Orwellian and sick. Lee goes on to shred the head of the FCC, Ajit Pai, by tearing into video footage of Pai being an absolutely ridiculous, villainous corporate tool. Lee then explains how important maintaining Net Neutrality is. He discusses how an open internet is why movements like Black Lives Matter, the Bernie Revolution and Occupy have been able to even exist. This and more on Redacted Tonight.

O’Donnell joins Lee at the desk to talk about the insurmountable financial crisis Puerto Rico is dealing with. They’re currently crippled by $123 billion in debt. And the dirty little secret is, in large part, this is because Puerto Rico has been colonized and exploited by the U.S. for over a century. Lee and John expose the redacted reality. Finally, correspondent Naomi Karavani files a report based on a new study about how money in politics influences politicians. We all know money in politics is corrupting our system, but this study now actually has the data. It focuses on two issues: Dodd-Frank financial regulation legislation and Net Neutrality.

Lee Camp covers the “language of war.” He delves into how the government and mainstream media outlets try to soften and normalize barbaric bombing by using manipulative words to describe it all. Lee breaks down a ridiculous CNN clip about Tomahawk missiles, which is essentially a massive, glorified advertisement for waging more war. He also shows how MSNBC and Fox News both gush over missile strikes and praise Trump for them. Next, Lee covers the snap election that Prime Minister Theresa May is calling for in the UK. The US is subjected to TWO FULL YEARS of soul-sucking media coverage of the presidential election. The question Lee asks is, “Why can’t WE have snap elections?!” Lee also gets into how churches and religious institutions of all kinds get to skip out on paying billions upon billions of dollars in taxes every year. This would possibly be somewhat understandable if they were actually using most of their money for charity, but studies show, unfortunately, they are not. In the second half of the show, correspondent Natalie McGill joins Lee at the desk to talk about how people in rural Tennessee are getting screwed over by the big telecoms. The people can potentially easily have access to way faster, municipal broadband internet, but they’re getting screwed by the power and corruption of Comcast and AT&T. Also, correspondent John F. O’Donnell files a report about how corporate media outlets, both in print and on TV, will present commentators/writers as being independent experts touting the value of war when, in reality, these people work directly for the weapons industry, personally profiting off of our bombing. All of this on the newest episode of Redacted Tonight!
Lee Camp covers the media’s sickening celebration after the U.S. drops lethal weapons in the Middle East. As CNN, MSNBC, and others behave like the media arm of the Pentagon, the truth behind why we attacked is obfuscated. And as news anchors finally knight Trump president, where are the voices opposing war? Then Lee covers a lawsuit against the EPA, because they ignored TOXIC chemicals that are widely used in agriculture, and that means, yes, our food supply. In the second half of the show, correspondent Naomi Karavani joins Lee at the desk to discuss the assault on science, the Science March and the most radical group of scientist-activists that will be at the rally. Then correspondent Natalie McGill, uncovers the forces of profit that are perpetuating the opioid overdose crisis in the United States. This and more on Redacted Tonight.
Lee Camp explains how scientists are gearing up to geoengineer the Earth’s atmosphere. When scientists consider a serious alternative to taking emissions and climate change seriously, what could go wrong after we pump aerosol injections 20 kilometers into the sky? Nothing, right? RIGHT? Next Lee covers how companies have started inserting microchips into the hands of their employees. Little will remain of privacy after the company can track your every movement, and after the government and hackers take advantage of this new technology. In the second half of the show, correspondent John F. O’Donnell joins Lee at the desk to reveals what’s behind the new North Carolina anti-LGBTQ law HB2, known as the “bathroom bill.” Did North Carolina finally agree to more tolerance or will there be extra security on the bathroom line? Finally, correspondent Naomi Karavani covers the recent disappearance of the drone tracking app “Metadata Plus” from the Apple App store and how new technology might be used to enlighten Americans or keep us in the dark. This and more on Redacted Tonight.
Redacted Tonight #142-Next Financial Collapse On Horizon, Smart Bombs But Dumb Kids, Religious Left Wakes Up
Lee Camp explains that there is another financial crisis looming over us. Just like in 2008/2009 when everybody was defaulting on mortgages, the same thing may happen very soon with student loan debt. The numbers of total debt and the percentage of people in default are nearly identical to the housing crisis. It’s a scary proposition, but certainly worth knowing about because these student loans are backed by the government, which really means us, the taxpayer. Next, Lee discusses the wake of Trump’s abysmal 2018 budget proposal. White House Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney, hit the news talk show circuit to make a very poor case for why gutting government programs vital to educating Americans and cleaning our air are just trimming the fat. Lee eviscerates him in this scathing piece. In the second half of the show, correspondent Natalie McGill joins Lee at the desk to reveal the stunning display of irony of right-wing lawmakers now proposing laws that would punish college students who protest campus guest speakers, absurdly claiming it’s in the name of preserving free speech. Finally, correspondent John F. O’Donnell files a report about the emergence of the religious left in response to Donald Trump. This and more on Redacted Tonight.
