Of all the sex scandals to rock Washington DC, the trafficking of children from Boys Town in Nebraska to Washington's highest political elite stands out among the most infamous. Today's show is divded into two hour segments. The first guest, Nick Bryant, is the author of The Franklin Scandal: The Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse and Betrayal.

In the second hour, two Ukranian activists from the Crimea and eastern city of Karkiv share a fascinating and intimate voice from inside Ukraine's counter-rebellion against the Neo-Nazi fascists of the West. Our interview details the financial corruption of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, nicknamed the "Oil Princess" for embezzling billions of dollars in oil revenues from the Ukranian people— and her former Deputy who handled the corruption, who is the West's appointed Prime Minister in Kiev, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, called "Yats" by Assistant Secretary of State Nuland, in her infamous phone call handpicking the new Government of Ukraine.
Listeners will quickly realize that Europe's ambitions in Ukraine are in shambles. The main speaker, Dennis Schedrivy from Kharkiv in the East, was part of yesterday's citizens' defense at the municipal buildings, when 100,000 pro-Russian Ukranians took to the streets to oppose Europe's "junta government" in Kiev.

They say Crimea is lost to Kiev, and they hope to follow shortly. These are not ex-patriates visiting their father's homeland. These are real Ukrainians passionately articulating their vision of the future of their country.
