S+S Podcast - August 15, 2017

Another new podcast from Stephen + Steven. Prophetically, after Trump had a public meltdown today, we talk about America losing its way and why when Nazis (neo or otherwise) are involved, they are automatically in the wrong.


Why It Is Impossible to Have A Reasonable DIscussion

Even after all that, after the killing and maiming at Charlottesville, the unrestrained hate, bigotry and symbols of mass murder on display for all to see, there are still people like this...

Another New Podcast - S+S Are Back!

Or is it S+S is back?

Whatever it is, the Stephen + Steven podcast is back after a long hiatus. We try to catch up on what's going on - Trudeau's persistence in the polls, social conservatives on the boil, the Omar Khadr settlement (again). We were so busy the hour went by and we didn't even get to Trump being busy making America something again. Something for next week.

New Podcast!

The audio archive of my appearance last night on #TheViewUpHere is now available.

I talk about "The Rule of Law" as the basis for a free and democratic society, but how neo-conservatives in Canada and the USA fight, resist and wilfully ignore the law in implementing their agenda through government. I call it "Law & Order Without The Law Part".

I run through the defeat in the courts of various key platform pieces of Harper and Trump's legislation for unconstitutionality, the attacks on judges and courts, and conservatives' claims that they report to a "higher power" than the courts and the law - the people.

Finally, I'll unpack the Omar Khadr case from capture to $10.5 million settlement, looking at it as a study in governments' willingness to ignore, sidestep and deny various basic human and international legal rights in the pursuit of ideology, and why it puts democracy and everyone's rights and freedoms at risk.

Have a listen.
