Betsy and Eric: Privatizing Education and the Military in God's Name

From Democracy Now, which is viewer funded.  Please donate.
In this web exclusive, investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill of The Intercept talks in depth about Trump’s team, from unofficial adviser Erik Prince to Defense Secretary James "Mad Dog" Mattis to education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos.


  1. It should be noted that Betsy Devos' husband, Dick DeVos, founded an aviation-themed charter in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Is this to prepare students to participate in Eric Prince's mercenary army? http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2010/03/dick_devos_launching_aviation-.html
