This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on ACR with host Patrick Henningsen covering the top stories in the US, Europe and internationally. We’ll discuss some pretty shocking take-aways from the Munich Security Conference, especially regarding Huawei and China. Also, Boris cancels visit to see Trump at the White House, apparently over CIA wife’s hit-and-run extradition controversy – which could influence the extradition case of Julian Assange. Later in the first hour, we’ll go on the ground in Southeast Asia with 21WIRE intrepid international political correspondent and best-selling authorAndre Vltchek, to talk about the historic announcement in Philippines by President Duterte, kicking out US military, and the country’s fluctuating relations with neighboring China. In the final segment of overdrive, we’ll talk with SUNDAY WIRE Roving Correspondent for Culture & Sport, Basil Valentine, to discuss how weaponized identity politics is ruining public discourse in America and Europe; as Basil says, “Politics is no longer a forum for debate, it’s where special interest groups issue ultimatums – which invariably opens the door for more oppression, with undemocratic forces entering the vacuum created by censorship.” All this and much, much more. Enjoy the show…

Turkey has upped the war rhetoric again - this time threatening Syria directly, and indirectly threatening Russia. As Damascus advances towards liberating terrorist-occupied Idlib, Erdogan's game of poker in Syria will become increasingly unsustainable. When Turkey is eventually forced out, the US will also have to leave also. 21WIRE editor Patrick Henningsen spoke to RT News International about the risky situation unfolding in northern Syria.

What the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary has shown us is that the Democratic Party is now the party of billionaires, with centrist, Neoliberal oligarchs like Mike Bloomberg and Tom Steyer allowed to buy their way in the election – while the DNC elites and corporate media work to shut-out viable candidates like Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang. Democratic establishment has shifted so far to the right that it's hardly distinguishable from Neocons. UKC News co-hosts Mike Robinson and Patrick Henningsen discuss how the political Left in America has colonized by the billionaires class.

This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on ACR with host Patrick Henningsen covering the top stories in the US, Europe and internationally. This week we’ll lift the lid on the Beltway Swamp’s wicked road show, otherwise known as the US Presidential Primaries, as campaigns’ predatory instincts kick-in, meanwhile the Democratic Party elites are busy behind the scenes attempting the fix the outcomes of their own electoral contents. Later in the first hour, we’ll go on the ground to the first proper Primary content in the state of New Hampshire, with ACR political commentator Daniel Spaulding, to break down and analyze who is trending and who is not – and what to expect on polling day. In the final segment of overdrive, we’ll talk with SUNDAY WIRE Roving Correspondent for Culture & Sport, Basil Valentine, to discuss the Iowa Caucus debacle, as well as the recent meeting with John Shipton, father of Julian Assange, as well as the increasingly dull UK Labour leadership content as the party threatens to disappear for a decade down one of Tony Blair’s ready-made centerist rabbit holes. All this and much more. Enjoy the show…

21WIRE’s Patrick Henningsen joins host George Galloway in-studio for Episode #32 of “The Mother of All Talkshows” – discussing the latest on what clearly looks like a full-on cover-up of exculpatory evidence by the OPCW regarding the alleged ‘chemical attacks’ in Douma, Syria.

Patrick recently attended a meeting at the House of Commons, which was held for the purpose of demanding more daylight for the OPCW leaks brought forth by multiple whistleblowers. He adds that all this is happening with the backdrop of potential ‘war crimes’ as a result of flawed or outright fraudulent evidence:

“Striking another UN member state in an undeclared act of aggression…and the staging of dead bodies.”

In the second half of the segment, George and Patrick get into the latest on Julian Assange, including his recent ‘unofficial solitary confinement’ and the likely continued, coordinated journalistic malpractice and mainstream media blackout as extradition proceedings go forward:

“So imagine that. Going to render a journalist from another country. Bring him for a trial in the United States, on the mainland, not Guantanamo Bay, on the mainland. And then say, ‘you no longer have first amendment protections.'”

Later in the first hour, we welcome a very special guest, author of Bombs for Peace, and global affairs analyst from the Global Policy InstituteGeorge Szamuely, to discuss ACT ONE of US Senate’s theatrical Impeachment Trial of President Trump, and what to expect in ACT TWO. In the final segment of overdrive, we’ll talk with SUNDAY WIRE Roving Correspondent for Culture & Sport, Basil Valentine, to discuss latest breaking news in what the White House and Tel Aviv are billing as The Deal of the Century, and the billionaire oligarch who is proposing new anti-free speech laws which would make any criticism of the policies or human rights abuses of the State of Israel to become a criminal offense in Europe. All this and much more. Enjoy the show…

This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on ACR with host Patrick Henningsen covering the top stories in the US, Europe and internationally. This week we’ll break down the latest from the #Impeachment debacle, how the Democrat 2020 Primary race just got dirty, as well as the new escalation from Europe against Iran over the crumbling JCPOA Nuclear Deal. Later in the first hour, we welcome a very special guest, Iraqi author, lecturer and prominent antiwar activist, Sami Ramadani, to discuss the current deadlock in the Middle East – as a reaction to Trump’s double-assassination, and Iran’s surprise missile retaliation, with the US now refusing to withdraw its military forces from Iraq. Does this signal a major power shift in the region, and the world? In the final segment of overdrive, we’ll talk with SUNDAY WIRE Roving Correspondent for Culture & Sport, Basil Valentine, for discussion on a taboo subject in the British mainstream – the latest “10-point pledge” issued by the Board of Deputies of British Jews (BoD) to the Labour Party, allegedly “to tackle the anti-semitism crisis,” but in reality it is being used to purge the Labour Party of left-wing, anti-apartheid, antiwar members. All this and much more. Enjoy the show…

We spoke with special guest, Iranian political and global affairs analyst from the University of Tehran, Dr. Mohammad Marandi, to discuss what really happened between the US and Iran, and how these events will affect East-West international relations and diplomacy going forward. Time and time again, Washington has misread and miscalculated Iran and other countries in the region, leading to a string of foreign policy failures.

This week the SUNDAY WIRE broadcasts LIVE on ACR with host Patrick Henningsen covering the top stories in the US, Europe and Internationally. This week past week has been historic to say the least, with the United States and Iran locked into a dangerous military standoff amounting to the sum of all fear – an escalation towards a multinational or world war. In the end, Trump stood down in the face of retaliatory threats from Iran and its allies, but the story is far from over. Events later took another turn when it was revealed that Iranian air defenses accidentally shot down Ukrainian Airways Flight 572 after take off from Tehran International Airport. In the first hour, we’ll talk with special guest, Iranian political and global affairs analyst from the University of Tehran, Dr. Mohammad Marandi, to discuss what happened and how these events will affect East-West international relations and diplomacy going forward. We’ll also connect with Press TV correspondent Robert Inlakesh to talk about how all of this is shaping regional strategy between the US, its allies, and the Axis of Resistance, and also how Israel is reacting to recent events. In the final segment of overdrive, we’ll connected with the SUNDAY WIRE’s Roving Correspondent for Culture & Sport, Basil Valentine for his take on this week’s incredible events, and also for an inside track on the apparent ‘break-up’ of the British Royal Family. How did this happen, and how will it effect UK politics? All this and much more. Enjoy the show…

Listen to this enlightening conversation with journalist Tareq Haddad – about his recent resignation from Newsweek over the media outlet’s refusal to properly cover the OPCW leaks exposing an internal cover-up of its investigation into the alleged ‘chemical attack’ in Syria.

We discuss how the mainstream media landscape is changing, as mainstream media outlets become mere dispensers for government and corporate-driven propaganda narratives.

This week has seen a startling turn over world events, as the US has attacked an Iraqi military base, and followed that up by assassinated leaders in both Iranian and Iraqi military organizations.

We’ll connected with Patrick Henningsen in London who has been reporting on this story this week, as well as political commentator Daniel Spaulding, and more.
