    Ep. 349 - If you know a Trump supporter, share this with them

    Ep. 349 - If you know a Trump supporter, share this with them

    Last night, in the middle of Nebraska, Donald Trump, in a painful metaphor for his whole life and presidency, literally bused hundreds of supporters into a rally in the freezing cold, then got on Air Force One and left them there with no way to get home. They were stranded for hours on end. It was so cold that men, women, children, and senior citizens had to be rushed to the hospital for hypothermia. Trump hates rural Americans. Always has. And last night, he let that hate show in a cruel way.

    Ep. 348 - Police Didn't Have to Kill Walter Wallace

    Ep. 348 - Police Didn't Have to Kill Walter Wallace

    All over the world police safely disarm men, women, and children who are in the middle of a mental health crisis. American police just don't want to. It's the bottom line. They are trained to shoot to kill any time they get the heebie-jeebies. And they damn sure do. Walter Wallace needed an ambulance. He needed medical attention. Instead, he got bullets.

    Ep. 347 - The First Thing Democrats Must Do if They Sweep Election Day

    Ep. 347 - The First Thing Democrats Must Do if They Sweep Election Day

    In a few hours, Republicans are about to approve the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. It will give conservatives a devastating 6-3 majority and the power to not only overturn everything we hold dear, but to basically overturn any future legislation if Democrats take power after the upcoming election. Democrats must be prepared to expand and change the Supreme Court.

    Ep. 345 - A New Grand Jury Must Be Convened for Breonna Taylor

    Ep. 345 - A New Grand Jury Must Be Convened for Breonna Taylor

    Yesterday a judge granted an original grand juror in the Breonna Taylor case the permission to speak out publicly about the hearing and their findings. What we learned was both explosive and despicable. The grand juror said that they were never even allowed to look at the evidence, in spite of requesting it, that could've caused them to charge the officers who shot and killed Breonna. This directly contradicts the words of Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron who said that the jurors themselves decided not to prosecute the cops. All of this misconduct and malfeasance warrants a new grand jury being formed. Today I'll unpack and explain how this could happen and who could do it.
