Grant F. Smith Talks about the Natl' Summit Reassessing the US/Israel Special Relationship

Grant Smith is the director of the Washington DC based Institute for Research Middle Eastern policy (IRmep)/ IRmep is an independent nonprofit that studies U.S. policy formulation toward the Middle East. Smith’s research and analysis about trade, law enforcement and opportunity costs have appears in Antiwar.com, the Financial Times of London, Arab News, Kiplinger, Gannet, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the New York Times, The Minneapolis Star Tribune, The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs and other specialty publications.

Smith is a frequent guest analysis on Voice of America, Radio France Internationale. He has also appeared on the BBC, C-Span, Al Jazeera, CNN and Press TV.

In 2003, Grant launched his Institute for Research Middle East Policy at a policy symposium in the Raburn House Office Building on Capital Hill warning about the grave dangers of adopting a 1996 neoconservative plan for involving the US military more deeply across the Middle East.

Grant was on The Kathleen Wells Show previously, and discussed his book: Divert! Divert details how an American company diverted/smuggled enriched uranium out of the country to Israel.

Grant’s book, Spy Trade: How Israel’s Lobby Undermines America’s Economy, shows that American’s problem is not only Israel and it’s lobby, but perhaps more dangerously blanket immunity from prosecution.

The harmful activities in which the Israel Lobby leaders engage are only possible because of their ability to corrupt US politics at every level of government.

On today's show, we discuss the national summit he co-sponsored, which aired on CSPAN, last Friday (March 7, 2014) that reassessed the US/Israel Special Relationship.

You can listen to last Friday's summit here:

Prof. Lawrence Davidson Talks About his Recent Visit to Iran

Lawrence Davidson lectured as a professor at West Chester University in West Chester, Pennsylvania. His academic work is centered on the history of American foreign relations with the Middle East.

Throughout his career, Davidson has informed public discourse with his critique of American foreign policy in the Middle East and has embarked on this endeavor in a way that promotes citizen awareness. Davidson analysis has centered on the reality of American conduct in the Middle East and has performed this analysis in conjunction with an awareness of the propaganda that has permeated this debate for the past 65 years. Given this analysis and focus, Davidson has become an outspoken and unflinching critic of the U.S. alliance with Israel and the Zionists' treatment of the Palestinian people.

Davidson is the author of several books. His latest, published in 2009, is Foreign Policy, Inc.: Privatizing America's National Interest. This work locates the source of U.S. foreign policy formulation in the activity of powerful lobbies rather than in the White House or State Department.

His analyses and commentary can be found here:

Board member, Tiffany Johnson, Talks about A New Way of Life Reentry Project and Prison

A New Way of Life Reentry Project is a non-profit organization in South Central Los Angeles with a core mission to help women and girls break the cycle of entrapment in the criminal justice system and lead healthy and satisfying lives. As a community advocate, A New Way of Life: provides housing and reentry support for women and children, advocates for the human and civil rights of people in prison and people with past convictions and builds leadership of formerly incarcerated women. In 2010, the founder of ANWOL, Susan Burton, was CNN's 2010 hero.

Ms. Johnson first heard about A New Way of Life Reentry Project (ANWOL) on the grounds of Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF), while serving a 15 to life sentence. After 10 years of incarceration, she contacted ANWOL to ask if a bed would be available if she became eligible for parole. The founder, Susan Burton, wrote back, extending a bed in her home. Although there was a place in the community for Tiffany, it took an additional 6 years before she was released. True to her word, Ms. Burton had a bed available and on April 28, 2010, Tiffany walked through the doors of ANWOL to start her new life. It was a cultural shock being back in society, but through ANWOL’s guidance and connections, she went on to begin a career in electrical assembly and live on her own. In 2011, Tiffany was asked to become a board member of A New Way of Life. In December of 2013, she left her career in electrical assembly to join ANWOL’s staff as a full-time community organizer for All of Us or None-Southern California (AOUON-SC).

Dr. Carl Hart Talks Drugs and How The War on Drugs has been an Utter Failure

Dr. Carl Hart is a neuroscientist and an Associate Professor of Psychology in both the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology at Columbia University, and Director of the Residential Studies and Methamphetamine Research Laboratories at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. A major focus of Dr. Hart’s research is to understand complex interactions between drugs of abuse and the neurobiology and environmental factors that mediate human behavior and physiology. He is the author or co-author of dozens of peer-reviewed scientific articles in the area of neuropsychopharmacology, co-author of the textbook, Drugs, Society, and Human Behavior, and a member of a NIH review group. Dr. Hart was recently elected to Fellow status by the American Psychological Association (Division 28) for his outstanding contribution to the field of psychology, specifically psychopharmacology and substance abuse. In addition to his substantial research responsibilities, Dr. Hart teaches undergraduate and graduate courses and was recently awarded Columbia University's highest teaching award.

Dr. Hart's latest book is: High Price. High Price is the harrowing and inspiring memoir of about a man who grew up in one of Miami’s toughest neighborhoods and, determined to make a difference as an adult, tirelessly applies his scientific training to help save real lives.

Young Carl didn't see the value of school, studying just enough to keep him on the basketball team. Today, he is a cutting-edge neuroscientist—Columbia University’s first tenured African American professor in the sciences—whose landmark, controversial research is redefining our understanding of addiction.

In this provocative and eye-opening memoir, Dr. Carl Hart recalls his journey of self-discovery, how he escaped a life of crime and drugs and avoided becoming one of the crack addicts he now studies. Interweaving past and present, Hart goes beyond the hype as he examines the relationship between drugs and pleasure, choice, and motivation, both in the brain and in society. His findings shed new light on common ideas about race, poverty, and drugs, and explain why current policies are failing. Read the rest of entry »
