David Swanson, author of 'War is a Lie' is working to build support for gun laws- what can you do to help?... And as tension simmers abroad, will Trump's need for negative attention get us into a war?.. How many Americans know that Iran made a deal with Reagan to hold the 1979 embassy hostages until Reagan was sworn in?.. For that matter, how many Americans really can see that Trump is a relentless liar and his business is really primarily money laundering?.. Meanwhile, is Trump courting the bottom tiers of the police and military for their support in case he needs to call on their muscle someday?..   

For the Book Club, Thom reads from "October Surprise" by Barbara Honegger.

Also, Evan Greer of 'Fight for the Future' joins Thom to discuss ways we must fight to preserve our privacy as facial recognition systems are deployed across the country by law enforcement.
