Human Rights Attorney Steven Donziger Faces Contempt Trial Without Jury; and The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump
Law And Disorder Radio has chronicled the decline of democracy and the rule of law in our country. A low point has been reached with the prosecution of human rights ex-attorney Steven Donziger. He is charged with criminal contempt and will be tried without the benefit of a jury before Federalist Society right wing pro-corporate Judge Loretta Presca.
Bandy Lee, a Yale School of Medicine professor and psychiatrist, told Congress that President Trump is mentally unstable, could be dangerous, and could even be involuntarily committed.

ARTSPEAK RADIO – El Amor que Mueve el Sol y las Demás Estrellas – The Love That Moves The Sun and Other Stars
ARTSPEAK RADIO presents a rebroadcast of El Amor que Mueve el Sol y las Demás Estrellas – The Love That Moves The Sun and Other Stars – a radio play in Spanish based on the lives of surrealist artists Leonora Carrington and Remedios Varo.
El Amor que Mueve el Sol y las Demás Estrellas- The Love That Moves The Sun and Other Stars -The fictional drama is inspired by the lives of Lenora Carrington and Remedios Varo. The story begins at their auspicious reencounter, during their exile in Mexico City: the Mexico of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, the Mexico of the Popol Vuh and indigenous healing, the Mexico that provided refuge for Europe’s artists and intellectuals, according to the synopsis.
Surrounded by the “exciting and utterly strange” land where “even the trees were unfamiliar,” they begin to create art unbound by the masculine surrealist manifesto and towards the “true muse.” Nurtured by their immeasurable imaginations and unique friendship, Leonora and Remedios discover that the poetic journey between madness and knowledge lies in reclaiming their own feminine mysteries.
