Trump's Infrastructure Scam...

Big Picture Interview: Richard Eskow, Campaign for America's Future/The Zero Hour. If Donald Trump really is serious about rebuilding our nation's crumbling infrastructure - Senate Democrats just gave him a chance to prove it.

Will Trump Green Light “Black Site” Prisons?

Big Picture Panel: Charles Sauer, The Market Institute & Dave McCulloch, Capitol Media Partners. According to a report out today in the New York Times, Donald Trump is considering an executive order that would clear the way for the C.I.A. to reopen overseas “black site” prisons, like those where it detained and tortured terrorism suspects before former President Barack Obama shut them down.The draft order would also reportedly allow new detainees to be sent to Guantanamo Bay - limit Red Cross access to American detention sites - and set up a process to review interrogration techniques - something that could lead to bringing back torture.

And because Pai is already a member of the FCC - he won’t need Senate approval for his new position. Pai is a staunch opponent of FCC regulations. You’re not hearing about this in the mainstream media in large part because MSNBC and CNN are owned by Comcast and Time Warner - two companies that stand to cash in big if net neutrality is destroyed.
