Very interesting. If you liked Dirty Money on Netflix, this is a deep dive into that kind of fraud.

Good job

This just goes to show it’s not Democrat versus Republican, conservative versus liberal. It is middle America versus the Washington DC swamp establishment. The beltway of DC including media lobbyists and politicians.
I am a sensible gun toting trucker.
If you are still an NRA member after this podcast you’re a fool.

Don’t mine the racist trolls like bud, I am sorry that people are expressing a different opinion than you. It is almost like that is what podcasts were for. Please stop saying “reverse racism” because you can’t think of an argument stronger that some limp asparagus. Now stop spreading this cancer like the little tumor you are.
