Counterpoint with Scott Harris

1) Dr. David Vine, Professor of Anthropology at American University and author of “The United States of War,” discusses concern about increasing U.S. tensions with China after the shooting down what was called a “Chinese spy balloon” over the coast of South Carolina, and Washington’s recently signed agreement to access four additional military bases in the Philippines — part of a network of military installations to monitor China in the South China Sea and around Taiwan.

2) Bryce Greene, a writer based in Indiana, discusses Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Seymour Hersh’s recent article, “How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline,” that details U.S. involvement in explosions that destroyed the Nord Stream 1 & 2 natural gas pipelines, that run through the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany last September — and asks why corporate media is ignoring this important story.

3) Norman Solomon, co-founder of Roots and author, discusses his group’s “Don’t Run Joe” campaign that seeks to dissuade President Biden from running for re-election in 2024, and changes Biden and the DNC have made to the Democratic Party’s presidential primary election schedule. He’ll also assess Pres. Biden’s State of the Union address and the media coverage it received.

4) Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director and Allison Pilcher, Policy Director, with the Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs, discuss their group’s support for proposed bill SB 961 in the Connecticut state legislature, the Carbon Free and Healthy Schools Act, that requires net-zero construction of new schools and major renovations, and requires state school applications for construction grants must show how new buildings will be net-zero to the extent practicable.
