    GOP Needs Divine Intervention

    PAUL JAY: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Paul Jay in Washington. In Iowa, the caucus is now over, a bit of a tie between Romney and Santorum with Ron Paul in the third, as everybody probably knows by now. They’ve all headed off to New Hampshire. But what does all this mean in terms of the coming 2012 election? How is this going to play out a few months from now? Now joining us to help us deconstruct this is Tom Ferguson. Tom’s a senior fellow at the Roosevelt Institute, and he teaches at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Thanks for joining us again, Tom. THOMAS FERGUSON: Hi…

    TRNN Debate: Is Humanitarian Intervention in Syria Justified?

    JAISAL NOOR: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Jaisal Noor in Baltimore. Over 140,000 people have died in Syria. That’s according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. More than 2.4 million refugees have fled the country and 6 million remain internally displaced since protests erupted against Bashar al-Assad in March 2011. The UN passed a resolution demanding Syrian authorities stop restricting access for delivery of humanitarian aid. As options appear limited for resolving the humanitarian crisis, does military intervention have a role in helping Syrians? Now joining us to debate this is two guests. We’re joined by Danny Postel. He’s an associate director of the Center for Middle…

    French Intervention in Mali Violates UN Resolution; Root of Crisis Marginalization of the North

    PAUL JAY: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Paul Jay in Baltimore. France is sending more forces to Mali as the anticolonial forces (as many of them describe themselves) are pushing further south. The forces are made up of the Tuareg people and various extremists, some people say. Others call them militant Islamists or Jihadists. But one way or another, there are many outside forces either intervening in Mali or poised to do so. Now joining us to talk about how we got here is Emira Woods. She’s codirector of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies. Ms. Woods is chair of the board of Africa…

    City Clears Art From Confederate Monument

    TAYA GRAHAM: In a city with an ever-increasing homicide rate, and dissatisfaction with City Hall evident in ongoing protests, an artistic critique of a monument to the city’s racist past would hardly seem worthy of government intervention. But that is precisely what happened yesterday, when the Baltimore City Police Department along with Parks and Recreation employees removed a sculpture placed at the base of a monument to Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. These pictures, provided by MICA professor Jay Gould, depict the scene as city workers remove the sculpture of a pregnant black woman holding a brick, art intended to bring context to the statue. A spokesman…

    Judges to Review Constitutionality of NDAA Military Detention Legislation

    PAUL JAY: Welcome to The Real News Network. I’m Paul Jay in Baltimore. On Friday, September 28, a panel of three judges will review the appeal of a ruling by a judge that said that the section of the NDAA (that’s the National Defense Appropriation Act) that’s the section that’s been very controversial that essentially allows for the military to detain people without trial, people in general (that means citizens and noncitizens), if they are connected with al-Qaeda or, quote, associated with it, whatever that means (and that’s part of what the problem is, whatever that means)–. Well, a legal case that was launched against this section included Chris Hedges,…

    Do Cyborgs Need Their Own Bill of Rights?

    Equal Rights For Mutants. These are body hackers, who are electing to put implants into their bodys, and to add extra capibilities and enhancements. The first one is freedom from disassembly. The second one is freedom from morphology The third is the right to organic naturalization Fourth is the right of body sovereignty And the fifth is equal rights for mutants I do see it becoming something that will be in people’s awareness in the future. And its great that we have an organization working on rights and awareness right now. Whether you want to be a cyborg or not, the cyborg bill of rights protects everybody. Whether or not…
