A special edition of The Roundtable Panel with a live audience at The Linda featuring regular panelist Malcolm Nance to discuss his comprehensive analysis of Vladimir Putin and Russia's master plan to destroy democracy in the age of Donald Trump.
Malcolm Nance’s new book is "The Plot to Destroy Democracy" which reveals the dramatic story of how blackmail, espionage, assassination, and psychological warfare were used by Vladimir Putin and his spy agencies to steal the 2016 U.S. election--and attempted to bring about the fall of NATO, the European Union, and western democracy.
Career U.S. Intelligence officer Malcolm Nance examines how Russia has used cyber warfare, political propaganda, and manipulation of our perception of reality (and will do so again) to weaponize American news, traditional media, social media, and the workings of the internet to attack and break apart democratic institutions from within, and what we can expect to come should we fail to stop their next attack.
Malcolm Nance is author of the New York Times bestseller "The Plot to Hack America." He is a globally recognized Intelligence community member and a counter-terrorism analyst for NBC News and MSNBC and our regular panelist.
WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the Fourth of July protest at the Statue of Liberty. Dr. Chartock also shares his thoughts on the Trump administration's push for race-blind admission policies at colleges and univeristies.
There is no better reason to support WAMC than the turmoil that surrounds this country as you read this. No matter what you may think of the current president, there are some things that cannot be denied. The first is that he has declared war on the free press in this country. The New York Times is the “failing New York Times” and the press in general is the “enemy of the people.” It’s right out of Henrik Ibsen. As Casey Stengel, the great Yankee and Mets manager put it, “You could look it up.” The second is that early in his campaign, Trump made it clear that at least one anti-Trump demonstrator at one of his early rallies should be led out and beaten up and that he, Trump, would pay for the beater-upper’s defense. This is exactly the kind of thing that we saw during the rise of Nazi Germany. Then, when people do whatever they can to put a stop to this type of bullying and Trump sanctioned violence, Trump and his minions argue that they are the offended. Think of a second grader turning to his teacher and whining, “Teacher, Tommy hit me.”
