People all over the world who just want a fair chance to thrive in their local economies are confronted with the seemingly indomitable, supra-governmental power of global private financial interests. But this hasn’t stopped them from trying – and some are making good progress. Ellen talks with public banking protagonists in Ireland and England about their homeland efforts in the face of deeply entrenched money powers while co-host Walt McRee talks with PA Project Founder Mike Krauss about a breakthrough in their efforts in Philadelphia. And Matt Stannard discusses our universal sense of fiscal vulnerabilities on the Public Banking Report.

We're starting off 2016 with a new format for the show. Mic Check Radio is now a bi-weekly show.

We start off this show with some poetry:
Ballad of the Landlord by Langston Hughes

Next up is an installment of the FBI Files, as we take a look at the sad entrapment case of Emanuel L. Lutchman. You can read the Criminal Complaint against him here.

We also bid farewell to 2015 by going over the fascinating results of the Pew Research Center's '15 Striking Findings From 2015'.

This week – we passed the 5 year anniversary of Tahrir square but do we even know or care what's happening there now? Do we see the parallels between what's happening here and what's happened there?

We speak with an Egyptian activist who risks her freedom in order to set the record straight on the past and the present.

Next up, this is the week to stand strong on the front lines against the complete corporate takeover and finally,

this low life scum is not something you can see, taste or have probably even heard of. But it's poisoning more than half our country – here's what you can do about it.

But first, allow me to not be polite, but poetic.


If you enjoy the show, please consider helping us create it! A coffee a month, an anonymous mask a month - help us keep acting out

ICE Raids, Mass Deportations and the Roots of Immigration

President Obama started the New Year off with a wave of ICE raids, including early morning raids of family homes with young children. Obama’s legacy, when it  comes to immigration, will be one of mass deportations, the jailing of immigrants in for-profit prisons and of worsening the US foreign policies that drive people to leave their homes. We’ll speak with Abraham Paulos, executive director of Families for Freedom, which has taken bold actions to highlight and stop these practices. And we’ll speak with Alexis Stoumbelis of Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES) about the policies that drive migration.

Trump 2-2

“[The] acceptance of capitalist accounting figures at face value, that is, without critiquing their real world significance in terms of average socially necessary labor and surplus labor (Cope, 2012), can only lead him to the absurd positions that (a) the world’s largest capitals have practically no interest in the Third World and (b) that the most exploited workers in the world (i.e. those whose higher productivity supposedly generates the biggest profits) are also the world’s richest.

Thus, in an article for the Trotskyist Fourth International, [Charles] Post writes that ‘global wage differentials are the result of the greater capital intensity (organic composition of capital) and higher productivity of labor (rate of surplus value) in the advanced capitalist social formations, not some sharing of ‘‘super profits’’ between capital and labour in the industrialized countries.

Put simply, the better paid workers of the ‘‘north’’ are more exploited than the poorly paid workers of the ‘‘south’’’.

Post shows complete disregard for the massive infusions of capital which result from global surplus value transfer and the all-too obvious facts of Northern working consumption goods being the product of super-exploited Third World labor.”
