A podcast supporting the presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, which like Bernie, deals with real issues.

    Russia Is A Mere Distraction From Democracy's REAL Destruction + Say "ABOLISH ICE" Without Fear!

    Russia Is A Mere Distraction From Democracy's REAL Destruction + Say "ABOLISH ICE" Without Fear!

    As Bernie says, it'll take millions of us to spread the word about the realities of our corrupt political system and raise awareness about stories that have real-world consequences for the 99%. Start binge-posting the truth and/or binge-calling your representatives! Find local progressive groups and candidates you can become involved with! When faced with a media circus and corrupt political system, it's what Bernie Sanders would do!

    #77 -- WHERE'S THE HUMANITY?? + Ocasio-Cortez's Definition of Democratic Socialist

    #77 -- WHERE'S THE HUMANITY?? + Ocasio-Cortez's Definition of Democratic Socialist

    The What Would Bernie Sanders Do Podcast is back! Why? Well, even when broadcast media thinks they are "fact-checking" or dispelling the lies about immigration coming from the Trump administration, the lies are still repeated far more than the truth. The lack of accurate and persistent pushback from the talking heads on CNN, MSNBC and NPR led Dr K to revive the podcast. If THEY are going to let Republicans and conservatives continue their fearmongering unabated, WE aren't! To counter the five biggest immigration lies, we offer facts you can use when confronted with conservative excuses for our punitive and superfluous immigration policy. 
     
    As Democratic Socialist Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez emerges victorious over establishment Democrat Joseph Crowley in New York's 14th Congressional District, her statement on the virtues of Democratic Socialism resonates with constituents of all colors and religions. What it reveals is that the current conflict in our country is not left versus right or Republican versus Democrat, but humanity versus inhumanity. A new wave of legislators will restore our society's grip on reality by doing what's right for the people, not a blue wave that'll do what's right for the donors. 
     
    The wisest judges in the land no longer make decisions based on precedent but on this president. The John Roberts majority proves in two of the Supreme Court's latest decisions that the law of the land is deceiving women and showing clear prejudice against Muslims based upon the premise of "national security." We debunk the court's argument and expose the Supreme Court’s majority for what it is--a branch of Fox News and thus the White House. 
     
    Are you a humane individual? You might think so, but play along with our new game show "How's Your Humanity?" and see if you're as compassionate as you think! And we suggest groups you can contact to help immigrants fight back. so stay involved, protest, march, spread reality on social media and support humane candidates on the local level, and you will forever FEEL THE BERN!!

    #75 -- HEALTHCARE AND HILLARY -- Not Entirely "What Happened!!" 

    #75 -- HEALTHCARE AND HILLARY -- Not Entirely "What Happened!!" 

    We tell Hillary Clinton "What Happened" because apparently nobody else will.

    Clinton must be jealous she's never possessed the prescience of Bernie Sanders, because the Single Payer program Clinton predicted will (her quote) "never, ever come to pass" less than two years ago has prominent Democratic co-sponsors.

    Amidst all the donor-driven angst emerges a glimmer of hope, so continue fighting for what is right.

    #74 -- Trump Fans WISH it were 1861 + NOW Is The Time To Fight For Single Payer!

    #74 -- Trump Fans WISH it were 1861 + NOW Is The Time To Fight For Single Payer!

    Donald Trump fans wish it were 1861 again. Emboldened by Republican leaders who've reinforced hatred of the Federal Government that's existed since "liberals" took away their slaves, we all must suffer the ravages of an unresolved violent and racist history as Trump continues the party's "patriotic" mission of reducing access to education and health care for people of color and the poor.
    Speaking of health care, Bernie Sanders is going to introduce his Medicare For All bill in the Senate, although he knows it won't pass. But in light of the Republican's mercenary and highly unpopular attempts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Bernie understands now IS the time to keep the conversation going on a Single Payer plan--the American people are waking up to the fact that for-profit insurers are interested in one thing, and it's not their health.
    Keep fighting for what we know is right! We can help Bernie by attending Town Halls with our representatives and becoming active on a local level. Make your voices heard and make a difference!

    #73 -- Dems AGAINST Single Payer! + STOP choosing Party Over People!

    #73 -- Dems AGAINST Single Payer! + STOP choosing Party Over People!

    Recorded May 5, 2017. Both parties have put us at the mercy of the for-profit health insurance industry for too long, and while Democrats sing "Nah-nah-hey-hey" at House Republicans for passing the treacherous "American Health Care Act", all this political football diminishes the health of millions of Americans . But the present charade on both sides of the aisle appears to have awakened many Americans and some politicians to the only viable answer: single payer healthcare.
     
    Debbie Wasserman Schultz says "MYOB" to Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren for DARING to question the judgment of Barack Obama for accepting a $400,000 speaking fee from a Wall Street investment firm.  But the Democrats' close ties to Wall Street and Big Pharma are not only "our business"--they are a major reason we have Trump in the White House. Debbie and the Dems can run but they can't hide as we continue to call them out for working for the donors -- and against the interests of the 99%. 
     
    "Progressive" media from MSNBC to Daily Kos attack Bernie Sanders for backing "anti-abortion" Democratic mayoral candidate Heath Mello in Omaha, and a "pro-gun" Democratic house candidate in Montana. As the Hillocrats look to marginalize Bernie, they offer insight as to why Democrats have lost a record number of legislative seats during President Obama's tenure.  Only Bernie seems to understand the true meaning of a "50-state strategy!" 
     
    Tulsi Gabbard is one of the lone voices for peace in American politics. Her profound message is being condemned by "liberal" media and Democrats alike, so it is up to us to help her spread the word! 
     
    The tide is turning, the Trauma of Trump and deception of the Democrats is awakening Americans to the fact that we have to work together to provide the services we all need to survive, so make the calls, attend the town halls, and work for progressive candidates on the local level. That's the best way to make sure this administration continues to Feel the Bern!

    #72 -- Maddow's ONLY About Russia And Choosing Party Over People -- While Tulsi and Bernie Fight The Right Fight

    #72 -- Maddow's ONLY About Russia And Choosing Party Over People -- While Tulsi and Bernie Fight The Right Fight

    Let them eat chocolate cake...while we kill civilians. Who'll save us from WWIII? Certainly not the Republicans... but not the Democrats either! Prominent Democrats praise Trump's response to Syria and call for one of their own to be ousted from Congress for telling the truth! Of course, when what Tulsi Gabbard says exposes Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Democrats once again choose party over people.
    Speaking of party over people, Democrats start their "Unity Tour" with new DNC Chair Tom Perez visiting seven states with Bernie Sanders. And (we suppose) in the spirit of unity, Hillary Clinton now decides she's delighted with New York's free public college tuition plan, a plan she ridiculed during the presidential primary debates.
    Bernie starts his own podcast (see below)! He offers reliable information about vital issues. This is the stuff that SHOULD be on MSNBC, but it appears Rachel Maddow and the rest think deflecting blame from the Democrats rests in massive amounts of coverage regarding.....RUSSIA! We give not only the disturbing numbers, but the irresponsible fearmongering Maddow engages in as the putative leader of the of the Democratic Party Media.
    If you're still a fan of the very popular (according to widespread reports) Bernie Sanders you'll want to keep the focus on progressive struggles over education, healthcare and civil rights, and perhaps most importantly, steering our country away from nuclear confrontation.
