Fighting Russia & China to Last American: Destroying US From Within Dr. Jill Stein & Michael Hudson https://youtu.be/3tiOp-L-uY4 
 NIMA ROSTAMI ALKHORSHID: Today we're going to talk with Dr. Stein, 2024 presidential candidate in the United States and her policy advisor, Professor Michael Hudson. And we're going to talk about Ukraine, Taiwan, Israel, and domestic policy in the United States. And so let's get started with the conflict in Ukraine.
