January 31st, 2005 : mp3 file not currently online
Phil opens by reading from Dave Zirin's Counterpunch article on Donovan McNabb: "We should never pass up the opportunity to point out that Rush Limbaugh is not only a racist pig but, unlike the swine, one of our stupider mammals as well. This past weekend, as All-Pro quarterback Donovan F. McNabb led the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl in 25 years, Limbaugh was undoubtedly chasing oxycontin with Kahlua in a state of utter misery." Zirin will be a guest on the Taylor Report February 7. Phil and Phil Conlon also talk about Zirin's important comments about Tom Frank's outrageous attack in The New Republic on critic's of the US attack on Iraq - calling for the use of a "bunker buster" on Arundhati Roy, for example.
Guest Keith Ellis, the translator of a bilingual anthology of poems by the acclaimed Cuban poet Nicolás Guillén, talks about some of the progress being made by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.

Ellis also talks about the Colombian-sponsored kidnapping of Colombian guerilla leader Rodrigo Granda from Caracas in December.

Stan Goff, Professor Keith Ellis
Phil talks to Stan Goff about his recent Counterpunch article "Phase One Against Empire; A Period For Pedagogy". Goff, author of "Hideous Dream: A Soldier's Memoir of the U.S. Invasion of Haiti", proposes some provocative ideas about the future direction of the anti-war movement in the US. "We need to mobilize against the war, and also use it as an opportunity to connect the dots between the war and what people see going on in their own lives ... this is a system creating this, a system that can be unmade by people." Goff also talks about the major mobilization against the Iraq war being held March 19 in Fayetteville NC, near the US military base of Fort Bragg.
Phil interviews Professor Keith Ellis, recently returned from the Congress of Intellectuals and Artists for Humanity, held in Caracas by the Venezuelan Ministry of Culture. Ellis is the translator of a bilingual anthology of poems by the acclaimed Cuban poet Nicolás Guillén
