For this Independence Day weekend the big interview will be VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN on This Snufagopolis, followed by a sour-faced CHUCK GRASSLEY, who double dips on Face the Bob. It wouldn't be an Independence Day without some military brass, so Admiral MIKE MULLEN gets the call on Face the Bob and Faux News and General COLIN POWELL (ret.) flag-waves on State of the King. Throw bricks at JOHN "Crybaby" BOEHNER, also on Faux News, who most recently tried to read the entire "cap-n-trade" bill on the floor of the house, calling it a "Pile of Shit" (video at HuffPo to prove it - Where's the outrage???). Be sure to check our alerts and donate to GRITtv with Laura Flanders before Midnight tonight! See SAM SEDER on Laura's Rountable! Jessie Ventura and Bernie Sanders are featured on a "best of" Ring of Fire Radio, Max Keiser talks with PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS (see The U.S. Regime-Change Recipe for Iran at counterpunch) and AntiWarRadio has an interview with MICHAEL SCHEUER you must listen to closely. We hope your holiday weekend has been fun and safe so far. Please check out Mountaintop Independence Day. As Laura Flanders sez, Celebrate Independent Media this Independence Day!!!

»Jeremy Scahill on Democracy NOW! In Iraq, a deadly car bomb in the northern city of Kirkuk has killed up to forty people and injured another 100. Tuesday’s bombing came hours after US troops withdrew from major Iraqi towns and cities, marring celebrations on a day that is now officially declared as “National Sovereignty Day,” a public holiday. We go to Iraq to speak with Sahar Issa, an Iraqi reporter working with the Baghdad Bureau of McClatchy Newspapers. We also speak with investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill about his article, “Iraq’s ‘National Sovereignty Day’ is US-Style Hallmark Hype.” WATCH How Can We Have Sovereignty When We Don’t Have Electricity or Water to Bathe?

»Honduras Military Coup leaders are SOA Grads on Democracy NOW! Romeo Vasquez, a general who led the military coup in Honduras against President Manuel Zelaya, received training at the US School of the Americas. The SOA has trained more than 60,000 soldiers, many of whom have returned home and committed human rights abuses, torture, extrajudicial execution and massacres. According to School of the Americas Watch, Vasquez attended the SOA in 1976 and 1984. The head of the Air Force, Gen. Luis Javier Prince Suazo, also studied there in 1996.

Speaking about the US healthcare system, Pilger says, “What is it about US legislators that they appear to be so in bed with such powerful interests, such as the insurance companies, that they can’t represent their own people’s needs, their own people’s basic human rights.” WATCH John Pilger Calls UK National Health Service a Treasure, Blasts US Lawmakers for Being “in Bed with Powerful Interests” and Neglecting “Their Own People’s Basic Human Rights”
