This week’s Ring of Fire, hosted by Mike Papantonio: Sundays at 12pm Eastern, 9am Pacific.  Full schedule of rebroadcasts can be found at

This week on Ring of Fire on Free Speech TV:  Big money billionaires have taken over everything from our electoral process to our media – author John Nichols will tell us how this happened.

The whistleblower who exposed the NSA’s spying activities is facing a tremendous amount of heat from the government, and we’ll have author David Sirota with me to talk about who the REAL criminals are in this matter.

Also on the NSA, Farron Cousins from The Trial Lawyer Magazine will tell us about the Republican hypocrisy taking place now that a Democratic President is using the same techniques as a Republican.

State legislatures are becoming more and more polarized from their electorate, and attorneys Joe Cotchett and Dave TeSelle will tell us how Republicans have been able to gerrymander themselves into power.

And could the GOP be losing their grip on southern voters?  Attorney Howard Nations will be here to give us the answer to that question.
