Should winners of election prosecute the loser? How does our moment resemble and differ from Watergate?

It's so timely and good, we have to feature it again.  Volunteer organizers Jean and Bill Brown invited Dartmouth Government Professors Linda Fowler and Russell Muirhead to a public watch party for the first Select Committee to Investigate the  Jan. 6 Attack on the Capitol hearings to give context and identify critical questions to ask.  Recorded by community producer Lynn Murrell and edited by Lebanon High School volunteer Liza Kourbatski for CATV. 

Viewing Tip:  Don't have time to watch? Stream CATV content via Bluetooth to listen while driving, exercising, etc.

Women's Health Protection Act

Another timely repeat: US Senator from VT Bernie Sanders makes the passionate case for the dangers to the lives of women with the end of Roe v. Wade, the hypocrisy of objectors to mask mandates on the basis of individual sovereignty yet who would take away women's rights to control their bodies, the realities we will face post-Roe, the need to codify health care rights protected by Roe v. Wade into law, the necessity of ending the filibuster to enable the Senate to represent the will of the people, and the human rights issues at stake.  (5/10/22)
