Trump and GOP Suddenly Support Defunding The Police, Episode 1359

It's A Recession, Episode 1356
David explains how economists will say anything if you pay them enough. Joe Manchin signs on to the climate bill, what's in it, and why did Manchin give in? Trump is promising martial law. Manufacturers of AR-15s were brought before Congress on Wednesday. David takes a close look at how those hearings revealed the ways assault weapons are marketed to white nationalists and far Right members of The Proud Boys, The Oath Keepers and The Boogaloo Boys. Also, we continue to examine the right wing's growing "insurrectionary theory” of the Second Amendment, and the false belief that our Founding Fathers believed citizens needed guns to check an "overly intrusive" government. We look at the midterms, and ask if things might be looking better at least politically for Biden and the Democrats.

David Feldman’s happiest six hours….
… were Olivia Newton John’s least 🥺
So good, I listen to episodes multiple times
David is an American treasure. His guests are carefully curated for their intellect, honesty, loving hearts and sense of humor. This show is deadly serious and lol funny. It might to be too stirring for you. Probably best you don’t listen. My numbing cocoon of ignorance was split open by a blade of truth; Yelling , tears and laughter poured out.
Feldman is the only comedian I still listen to for his opinion, because he's right, you should not get your news from comedians. Amongst the Jon Stewarts, Jimmy Dores and Joe Rogans, he gets grandfathered in because he's always seemed like an honest broker, while they're a gallery of, at worst neo-fascists, and at best, upholders of the neolib order. His guests range from Marxists to centrists and though I'm on the far left, hearing what the MSNBC crowd is thinking is instructive. And Feldman often challenges their views, which I like. My critique: can he leave the fat-shaming in another era? "OBESITY" is a stigmatized word, so constantly haranguing about it comes off as prejudiced, which makes Feldman's concern for public health ring false. Based on his rant about Dave Chappelle, I know Feldman knows better when it comes to marginalized groups. We need to protect them, correct?
