1) Sam Husseini, communications director with the Institute for Public Accuracy talks about the massacre of civilian protesters by Israeli soldiers at the Gaza-Israeli border coinciding with the opening of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. He'll also discuss his recent article, "Torture is not Only Immoral, But a Tool for War."

2) James S. Henry, a senior fellow at Columbia University's Center for Sustainable International Investment and Global Justice Fellow at Yale University and Senior Editor at D.C. Report for investigative economics, discusses his views on the recent revelations of corporate money, some of it linked to Russian oligarchs, flowing into what has been reported to be a multi-million dollar slush fund controlled by Donald Trump's attorney Michael Cohen.

3) Jackie Cabasso, National Co-convener of United for Peace and Justice discusses her group's efforts to mobilize U.S. citizens to resist what appears to be the Trump regime's drive for war with Iran, following Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the international nuclear agreement with Iran.

4) Donald Jean Marie and Rachel Battista of UNITE HERE Local 217, the union representing workers at the Stamford, CT Hilton, which is now engaged in organizing an economic boycott of the hotel until management agrees to offer workers a fair contract.
