This week’s Ring of Fire, hosted by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Mike Papantonio and Sam Seder: Saturdays at 3 o’clock Eastern, rebroadcasts Sunday nights at 8 pm Eastern

Stepping into the Ring of Fire this week: Rolling Stone contributing Editor Michael Hastings will be here to tell us how our military leaders in Afghanistan attempted to skew the reality of the war to sway the votes of American senators.

We’ll also be talking with Mary Holland and Louise Habakus about the vaccine epidemic in America, and how the pharmaceutical industry and the government are hiding the dangers of over-vaccination.

We’ll also be talking with Congressman Bruce Braley about his recent trip to Afghanistan, and we’ll find out what’s happening in the war that Americans seem to have forgotten about.

And investigative journalist Lee Fang will join us to discuss his recent rebuttal to Charles Koch’s op-ed where he tried to convince Americans that he and his brother aren’t as evil as we believe.
