1+1 Episode 14 Yuri interviews Cindy Sheehan on the Bush-Obama legacy & many more(May23rd 2020)

We return to 1+1 after a week off, and joined by the legendary anti-war/anti-imperialist activist and thinker Cindy Sheehan. Always consistently anti-war never selective, truly an anti-war leftist not just anti-war on Republican wars I speak with Cindy on the George W. Bush legacy and the rise of Obama and his legacy (how the left leaning media and organization helped deceive people into supporting Obamamania) and how both have badly damaged the US and the world. I ask her about why the anti-war movement/anti-imperialist movement isn't as strong as the efforts against World War I, The Vietnam War, and the pre-invasion protests against the impending invasion of Iraq and why isn't there the mass level of opposition to the Western/Gulf destruction of Syria as opposed to Yemen, the war against oil in Iran but not much mass mobilization against the war for oil and mining in Venezuela and elsewhere such as Ukraine, Hong Kong, Bolivia, and we discuss how NGOs and Qatari funded media like Al Jazeera, Middle East Eye & Middle East Monitor have played a part in confusing the left and making people selectively anti-war or buying into destabilization efforts as opposed to just being opposed to the latest imperial adventure and its deadly deceptions. and which newsoutlets and organizations she would recommend anti-war activist/anti-imperialist activists should subscribe to/donate and join. I also got the chance to also Cindy why are families devastated by the experience of the Iraq War and its deadly impact the deceptions have inflicted on them are welcoming George W. Bush into their lives to paint pictures of their kids and accepting blood money for him as he makes money off his art books which he claims he'll donate to helping out Veterans and how should John McCain and George H.W. Bush be truly remembered as well as us discussing "if you don't like the Confederate Flag and those Confederate rebels, you should disavow the Founding Fathers and other early presidents and the current American flag". all this and more in this fantastic edition of 1+1. do enjoy and share widely! some final notes you can check out Cindy's wonderful work including her own radio show at this link cindysheehanssoapbox.blogspot.com/ and the outlets Cindy recommend are the following which I recommend as well www.blackagendareport.com www.mintpressnews.com https://www.telesurenglish.net/ https://www.rt.com/shows/ and I forgot to mention during the interview that Whitney Webb a muckraker Cindy and I both admire and both have interviewed on our programs her current gig is the Last American Vagabond to keep up to date with her wonderful truthtelling and mythbusting is this link https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.c... and https://unlimitedhangout.com/ and to donate to Ms.Webb personally and her book project is this link https://www.patreon.com/whitneywebbmpn
