Help restore the AFSC Friend of a Friend project in Maryland - 8:00pm est

Dominque Stevenson is the Baltimore Director of American Friends Service Committee and helps to implement their Friend of a Friend mentoring project which operates in three sites in Maryland. This program has been highly spoken of by Political prisoner Marshall "Eddie" Conway the former Black Panther who has served more than 40 years in prison after being framed by the FBI’s COINTEL program that sought to eliminate Black Panther leadership by means which included false criminal charges and even assassination of Panther members.

The Maryland Secretary of Public Safety & Correctional Services Gary D. Maynard unfairly suspended the FOF project reportedly over a harmless incident involving a floppy disk and their reasoning does not make much sense at all so hopefully Ms. Stevenson can help us understand what is going on and what we can do to help.

News of the Day - 11/28/2012


President Obama welcomed Mexico's president-elect, Enrique Peña Nieto, to the White House on Tuesday for the first meeting in what both leaders said they hope will be a productive relationship. “We meet early with the president of Mexico because it represents the close relationship between the U.S. and Mexico,” Obama said in the Oval Office as he met with Peña Nieto, whose inauguration is on Saturday.

President Obama will also be having lunch with Mitt Romney stating he likes some of the defeated Republicans ideals on how to run the country.

Fox News has hit back at author Tom Ricks for blasting the network during an on-air interview as “operating as a wing of the Republican Party” and accusing it of hyping the Benghazi attack, saying he “apologized in our offices afterward but doesn’t have the strength of character to do that publicly. Ricks denied that he had apologized.

Major tobacco companies that spent decades denying they lied to the U.S. public about the dangers of cigarettes must spend their own money on a public advertising campaign saying they did lie, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday.

8:30 PM EST

The fiscal cliff: Who is pushing us off and why?
In the first segment we look at the so-called "fiscal cliff" and worries that European problems will become our problems. But what if it's all smoke and mirrors?

How shall we protest?
Dairy farmers in Europe are spraying Parliament with milk they produce at a loss. Four students in Tibet have burned themselves alive in protests. With political leaders in the US believing they are firmly back in control post-election, what is next for "we, the people"? Is Occupy a spent force? Should we all pool our money and buy our own politicians?

It's the power stupid
We'll look at Uruguan President Jose Mujica, said to be the world's poorest head of state. Why do so many world leaders come from the wealthy class, or wind up very rich after serving their nation? Are we underestimating the value of the graft?

Telling Grover to take a hike
Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina has said he's willing to agree to a tax rise for spending cuts in "entitlements", effectively telling Grover Norquist to take a long walk on a short pier. Graham joins Rep. King of New York and Senator Chambliss of Georgia. Is this principal, or real-politik by Graham and friends?

Can the Tea Party & Occupy Movements set aside differences? - 8:30 PM EST

Is there any common ground for Occupy & Tea Party Groups to work on bipartisan issues? Gregg Jocoy, Green Party member wonders if there is some common ground between the two groups.

The Petraeus Affair? The CIA Head busted for cheating on his wife, how does this happen? Could this possibly evolve into a honey pot spy operation, a tryst gone
bad, or what?

Why does the media focus so much on financial issues that have no effect on real peoples. With TV and Radio shows all over the airwaves, are they really sharing useful information.

Political Prisoner Radio takes a look at hidden cases within the American judicial system. Do political prisoners exist, of course they do but why is every pretending like they don’t exist. Political Prisoner Radio will be joining the line up and simulcasting live on Occupy The Microphone, Thursdays @ 8:00 PM EST.
