TUC Radio: Michael Parenti, The Supremely Political Court

Date Uploaded: 2019-07-16 20:22:18.0
In his extraordinary 26 minute history of the Supreme Court Dr. Michael Parenti warned us in 1995 that this partisan, aristocratic institution might one day empower an autocratic president. It seems that time has come and two Trump appointees, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, can push the scales of justice in favor of their politics. Unless there is a groundswell to question and change the legal rules of that institution. Why is so much power being given to 9 unelected, non term limited judges.

Michael Parenti was born into a working class Italian family in East Harlem, New York City. He went on to receive his Ph.D. in political science at Yale in 1962. His academic career was cut short by his dismissal after he was arrested for protesting the US war on Vietnam. Parenti became an independent scholar, lecturer and author. And he remained an activist as well.

Over 20 years ago Parenti already pointed to the role of the court in concentrating wealth in the top 1 percent, and the way in which the Supreme Court expanded the power of corporations and laid the groundwork for what later became the Citizens United ruling of 2009.

And most dangerously, how the Supreme Court began to give power to the president in matters of foreign policy and national security that neither Congress nor the Constitution had granted. Parenti said: “... by Judicial Fiat the President could now do whatever he wanted in the absence of specific legislative prohibitions.”

The Supremely Political Court is part of the series: Democracy What Went Wrong , how the CIA, media, corporations, universities, police and the Supreme Court are threatening democracy and what might be done to meet challenge. The original series was produced by TUC radio in 1995.

Genetically engineered food products are an issue that concerns many. In more recent years, Mendocino County has gone so far as to pass a resolution legally prohibiting their growth in the county. My guest in this program, recorded in the late summer of 1995, is Ron Epstein, a philosophy professor at both the Buddhist University in Talmage, CA and San Francisco State University. He has given considerable consideration to the problems of genetic engineering of the plants and vegetables that we eat.

Taylor Report: Israel's "Special Relationship" is to Serve Imperialis...

Israel came into being under the aegis of the British Empire to serve as an "outpost" of the West, a trusted servant of the colonial powers. It was permitted to acquire nuclear weapons, no questions asked. But still, the Palestinians and millions of other Arabs have not surrendered to colonialism's territorial grab. Indeed, the resistance is stronger than ever.



Sea Change Radio: Amy Harder: Investments in Nuclear Power + Plastics

Date Uploaded: 2019-07-16 15:50:50.0
If you had a million dollars what would you do with it? OK, now what if it were $100 billion? Today on Sea Change Radio, we are talking with Amy Harder, environment and climate reporter for Axios, about where some titans of industry are investing their money and the environmental impact it might have. You might be surprised to learn, for example, that Bill Gates has been pouring some of his considerable wealth into the nuclear energy sector. Harder recently interviewed Gates about his estimated half a billion dollar investment into TerraPower. She tells us about that as well as the big bets that companies like Exxon Mobil are making on ethane, a petrochemical by-product that is used to produce plastic.
