NAFTA Redo Adopts Secrecy of TPP Talks

As renegotiation discussions on the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) begin, many are dismayed by the absolute secrecy of the talks, which mirrored how TPP talks under Obama were hidden from public view. On today’s show we’ll turn to Josh Wise of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy about what’s at stake in the NAFTA reboot. Then, as Donald Trump fails to rack up any legislative wins during his 8 months in office, he is succeeding at one thing: re-defining the federal courts with his nominations of extreme right wing and pro-Republican judges. Dan Goldberg with the Alliance for Justice will explain who the nominees are and what their appointments mean for ordinary Americans. Finally, is there Life After Hate? Angela King, co-founder of a group dedicated to transforming violent white supremacists will join us to share her own story and discuss whether it is possible to rehabilitate a Nazi.
