Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

Today on Ring of Fire, former economic hitman John Perkins will be joining us to talk about how the world’s financial markets imploded because of techniques that he employed as an economic hitman.

We’ve also got author Jim Hoggan with us to give us the inside scoop on how the Republican Party has been so successful in convincing Americans that scientists are torn on the issue of global warming when they really aren’t.

And comedian Matt Filipowicz will be here to update us on the craziest antics of the GOP, including Michelle Bachman’s latest attempts to rally her teabag followers.

We’ll also be talking with best-selling author Max Blumenthal about his new book Republican Gomorrah, which tells the story of how a handful of religious frauds have hijacked the Republican Party, and have driven it to the brink of extinction.
