Will Rouhani Bring a Tectonic Shift to Iran’s Political Landscape?

Nile Bowie discusses the challenges and controversies of recent Iranian political developments with award-winning journalist Kourosh Ziabari

NB: Hassan Rouhani, a reform-minded moderate cleric and former nuclear negotiator under President Khatami, will be Iran's new president. There is talk in Washington of direct US-Iran talks in light of Rouhani coming to power. Rouhani campaigned on a platform of trying to “normalize” relations with the West, and he even made statements like, “It is good to have centrifuges running, provided people's lives and livelihoods are also running." Given Rouhani’s stance, did the Iranian public treat these elections as a public referendum on the nuclear issue? And how did Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei interpret the results? [Read more...]

The Reality Principle -Episode 1

“Austerity at Home & Abroad” with Dr. Jeffrey Sommers

Boiling Frogs Post welcomes Eric Draitser to its team of Partners! This is the first episode of The Reality Principle. Starting next week this weekly podcast show will be available to Boiling Frogs Post subscribers.

RPLogoAs the global economic crisis continues to worsen, austerity has become the consensus of the ruling elite.   The combination of brutal cuts, exploitative privatizations, and the assault on organized labor has led millions into the streets of Europe, demanding an end to the attack by the financiers.  However, in the United States, we face the prospect of an insidious "grand bargain" between Obama and the Republicans, one that will usher in a wave of cuts to social services that will surely cost lives and lay the groundwork for the destruction of critical social programs.  It is against this backdrop that we ask the question: Why is it always working people, the poor, the elderly, and other disadvantaged groups who are forced to pay for the excesses of the ruling class? Why must we pay for them?

Listen to the Podcast here:

JeffreySommersDr. Jeffrey Sommers is an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  He is the co-author of the forthcoming book The Contradictions of Austerity: The Socio-Economic Costs of the Neoliberal Baltic Model (2013).  His research in political economy has recently brought him to Latvia and other parts of Eastern Europe where he has studied austerity and its impact on society. A strong critic of neoliberal capitalism, Dr. Sommers discusses the need for growth and credit creation as central to any economic recovery. He also explains how austerity fits into the larger historical context of the financial ruling class and their exploitation of the working class and the poor.

Classified Woman at Lew Rockwell Show

The United States of Terrorism

USTLast Thursday, one day before leaving the sin city, in our temporary suitcase-filled rental apartment, I gave an interview to Lew Rockwell on Classified Woman and much more. I say much more because despite all the chaos I was unusually relaxed and open during this interview. Part of it had to do with my interviewee; someone I respect-someone who understands, and if you listen to this show you’ll find another reason (why I chose Mr. Rockwell as one of the first recipients of advanced copies of my book).

I am sure as in almost all my interviews I am going to get ‘some’ royally ticked off. But hey, think about it, if your interviews/statements leave everyone happy, if you end up not ticking off anyone with what you put forth, … well, then you may as well run for a political office and be among those engaged in screwing our nation. Don’t you agree? Oh, by the way, that’s me in the picture according to ‘some’;-)

Anyhow, I am still in between states-currently in Arizona. The internet connection in my hotel room is pretty iffy. So I will cut this post short and let you listen to my interview with Lew Rockwell: Click Here.

S.372- ‘A Bill set to make things all but impossible for future would-be whistleblowers

CorbettJames Corbett of Corbett Report has been doing a great job covering the recent troubling developments in the Senate version of the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act (S. 372).
