 News Report
 Host Jeff Blankfort
 Jeff Blankfort  
Blankfort begins with report on showing of Seize the Time, a film about the Black Panthers released by Italian filmmaker Antonello Branca in 1971 and the influence, on its 50th anniversary, of BPP on Black Lives Movement today and Chicano, Asian, Puerto Rican, and American Indian movements of the 60s and 70s and link between Indian takeover of Alcatraz in 1969 and resistance of Standing Rock Sioux today.

Blankfort then reports on Pentagon readying for offensive to take Raqqa using Kurdish fighters despite their indifference to Raqqa and Turkey’s objections to their use, showing the US to be clueless, as usual. He then speaks of NY Times admission that anti-government forces in Aleppo are directed by Al Qaeda. He then shifts to Lebanon where former president and Hezbollah ally, Maronite Christian leader, Michel Aoun, has been re-elected to the presidency, upsetting Saudi, Israeli and US plans. He concludes with report of audio of then Sen. Hillary Clinton telling right wing Jewish newspaper that the US should have fixed the 2006 Palestinian elections as the DNC fixed her nomination.
