    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.

    Ep. 343 - 50 Cent fell for tired old lies from Donald Trump

    Ep. 343 - 50 Cent fell for tired old lies from Donald Trump

    Yesterday 50 Cent endorsed Donald Trump and literally said he doesn't care if Trump hates Black people. But today I want to dig deeper. The very reason 50 endorsed Trump is based on a complete fabrication about Biden's tax plans. Also, I share a personal story about one of 50's dear friends.

    Ep. 342 - The United States Helped Overthrow This Democracy. Yesterday the People Responded.

    Yesterday the people of Bolivia voted their socialist party and leaders back into office after a coup backed by the United States and gross capitalists like Elon Musk. It was a total rejection of the coup. Of course, the American media and power structure hardly has anything to say about it. Let me unpack and explain why it matters.
