Mercedes AMG Petronas is at the top of the Constructors for the Formula One World Championship. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton helped get them there with his second straight win Sunday, at the Formula One Grand Prix in Bahrain. Hamilton's brilliant calculations were instrumental in fending off his greatest challenger, teammate Nico Rosberg. Roberg had fresh tires and the Drag Reduction System (DRS) option. Hamilton had to keep him close enough to prevent the use of the DRS, while racing on tires that were in need of a change. Fans have said, "it was the most exciting race they have seen in a long time." After three races, Nico Rosberg is in the lead with points after winning one race and two second place podiums. Lewis Hamilton is second in scoring points after winning two races, and missing points for the first race, due to car trouble. While it is still early in the season, fans are asking "where in the world is Red Bull and Ferrari"?
Sergio Perez with Sahara Force India came in third, after a very impressive drive. And not to be over-looked, is the ever dependable Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas, who continues to score points for the Williams team.
Next race, China

Finian Cunningham of Global Research will be with me tonight to speak to me about Bahrain and their failed Arab Spring. With US help, the Kingdom continues to suppress their Democracy movement. The US Fifth Fleet has their home port there.
Another question we'll discuss: Is Democracy Coming to the U.S.A.
This week we’re going to take a closer look at the chaos unfolding in Ukraine and Gaza and place both conflicts in the wider political context of the modern history of both the Middle East and Russia.
To help us do that, we’ll be joined by Finian Cunningham, an Irish journalist who has written extensively on international affairs, with articles published in several languages. For nearly 20 years, Finian worked as an editor and writer ifor major news media organisations, including The Daily Mirror, The Irish Times and The Independent.
Deported from Bahrain in June 2011 because of his critical journalism in which he highlighted systematic human rights violations by the Bahraini regime forces, Finian is now a columnist on international politics for Press TV and the Strategic Culture Foundation.
We hope you'll join us from 2-4pm EST (11am-1pm PST / 8-10pm CET) this Sunday, August 3rd.

Tonight's special guest is Haseena Patel from South Africa, a returning NAASCA family member who's a girls’ empowerment coach, activist, speaker and author. She'll be appearing to talk about the "Bubbles Beyond Borders" campaign. This International event is planned for August 16th, and is being done to support the rights and dreams of girls and women worldwide. It was inspired by the recent horrific abduction of Nigerian girls. At least 9 countries are planning to be involved at present: South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, Trinidad, Bahrain, Australia, the UK, Canada and the USA. (www.facebook.com/bubblesbeyondborders). Ms Patel's own life journey led to her writing her first book, "I Choose Victory: Find light in the darkness of a life-changing crisis." Girls’ empowerment, along with gender equality, has always been something that Haseena felt strongly about, and in 2010, together with her sister, Shameema, she founded Leave No Girl Behind International. Their organization inspires girls to live up to their own potential and raises awareness about the necessity of empowering girls, through international projects and programs. Haseena’s latest book, which she co-authored with Shameema, is titled "Leave No Girl Behind: How to help girls become the change in our world." As Haseena writes, "We need to be the light for all those girls out there who need hope." She goes on, "An empowered girl means an empowered nation which means an empowered generation. Let us Leave No Girl Behind!"
A recap of todays race
Coming off of a spectacular win in Malaysia and Bahrain, pole sitter and 2008 Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, won his third consecutive Grand Prix race of the season. The race was a historic accomplishment for Hamilton, who had never won three races consecutively. He is now tied with the great Nikki Lauder, one of his mentors at Mercedes AMG. The Mercedes team must be dancing on their toes with three wins by Lewis Hamilton, and one by Nico Rosberg, which put them ahead in the constructor series.
Some have declared this to be the year of a Hamilton/Mercedes championship feast. They may be right but there are many more races ahead and many more drivers who are, hungry enough to force their way to the table, including his teammate Nico Rosberg.
The Grand Prix China marked the third time; both drivers were on the podium together with a 1-2 smack down. The brilliant and humble Lewis Hamilton is poised to continue his reign at the Spanish Grand Prix. If the Mercedes car continues to be superior to its competitors, there is no reason why Hamilton cannot achieve a fourth consecutive win.
At the end of the day, it will be pure speed, tire care, intelligence and ability, that will win the championship, and Lewis Hamilton can do it all.
For the next 3-weeks he and his team, should be on a beach sipping fruit juice and soaking up the sun.
The original podcast of April 22 on the subject of Bahrain with Finian Cunningham was corrupted. I taped the show and have reposted it. Sorry for the inconvenience, but the interview and the information coming out of Bahrain is very telling and suggests that the United States is supporting a murderous Monarchy with the help of its ally Saudi Arabia, even while it claims that they are involved in the civil war in Libya for "humanitarian" reasons. Listen to this interview with a journalist in Bahrain and determine for yourself if the US is involved in the conflict in Libya an Bahrain for altruistic reasons.
The third interview with Finian Cunningham about Bahrain and the Pro-Democracy movement. This is a very telling account that actually wshgows how American foriegn policy is working against our best interests. The media reports that "Bahrain is returning to normalcy" is hogwash. Military actions against the people and torture and detentions of "dissidents" proves otherwise.
Finian Cunninham reporting from the Bahraini Capitol Manama, is a real eye-opener. Listening to this will prove disconcerting to those that believe America supports democracy and self-determination.
If you are interested in the future of democracy, Bahrain, or even the future of relations between the Arab people and the United States, you owe it to yourself to listen to this interview.
Finian Cunninham is a journalist from Bahrain. Here is his latest interview to give us the scoop about what's really happening in that nation.
