Our show is reaching out across the Country to the Occupy Movement, covering Political Events and Battles, and also honoring those Fighting the Good Fight Day in and Day out. We strive to honor the 99% , Real People, Real Stories.... You can Link here or the Radio over on the Sidebar...Tune In and Listen up....
Our First Guest is from across the Pond, a fine Journalist, Author Denis Campbell, and is another soul who keeps Twitter lively with his political insights and observations. He is known on Twitter as @UKProgressive, but he is also a renowned journalist working with ITN and Al Jezeera and BBC Wales, The Guardian and many other fine UK publications. During the Egypt Uprising he became one of the many to really track the Movement on Twitter. Yet he also was astutely tweeting American Politics. This year he was one of the first to recognize the strength of Twitter during the Egypt Uprising, and it is woven into his book "Egypt Unshackled" that has just come out. And taking it to the next step he has been tweeting and appreciating the Occupy Movement in a global sense.
Guest #2 on Sunday Night will be Nicole Belle, one of our favorite Poltical Bloggers from "Crooks and Liars", who has been keeping us on our political toes for the past 5 years and is one of our Favorite longtime Women Bloggers. Her coverage this fall from GOP debates and other GOP dashing silliness to analysis of other timely interviews has been stellar. Do be sure to see the Paul Krugman Interview and analysis. She shows clips and dissects and analyzes better than any of the MSM talking heads. Through the Bush years, Nicole's posts were always timely lessons of painful times. One of my personal favorites is her post that she wrote called "What goes around comes around and is on was on the ACLU website, it is a poignant personal post about an Iranian family living in America after 911 written in 2008, that one post reflected our Civil Liberties in the clouded mirror that arrived during the Bush Regime ( and still remains in many ways unhealed even today.)
Erin Kotecki Vest is our 3rd Guest, many on Twitter know her as @QueenofSpain , she is doing her best as a Media Strategist, wonder Blogger, but she is also an amazing mom, and is battling Lupus.Her blog is touching and insightful from Mom Moments shared to day to day revelations about Lupus, her "Queen of Spain" blog is beautifully written. We plan to talk with her about her ongoing Lupus Battle and hope to help spread the word about this disease that does not get enough public attention.
We All Are The 99%, We Are Here, Connecting, and Changing Our World.

Some of the Mythes that are mentioned in the videos and on Cenk's blog are still issues that arise today ::
Myth: Death by lethal injection is painless and humane.
Myth: The death penalty provides "closure" to families of victims.
Myth: The death penalty is enforced only after all efforts for appeal have been exhausted.
Myth: The death penalty is faithful to the Constitution.
