    Rock your Rights w/ Jessica Burnquist; The Human Corporation & Killing Kancel Kulture

    Welcome back to TheUSAPodcast hosted by Mike Riley

    Episode 138
    The recent events that have been taking place in the US have motivated and energized many people to finally want to get informed, get involved and make a change. However many people, especially young, have no clue where to start. Even more, many feel as if their voices are too tiny to be heard. That is where Jessica Burnquist comes in. Jessica Burnquist is the director of “Rock Your World,” an organization that inspires students to take action to improve the challenges they see in the world around them. In this episode, we talk with Jessica about how this organization is reaching young activists, how education plays a role, and how we can rock our own worlds through activism.

    Also, on theUSApodcast we dare to ask the question, are corporations people? If so, do they have the same rights as humans? Last week, energy company PG&E pled guilty to killing 84 people, but not one “person” will spend a day in jail. Why? Why are corporations considered people if they cannot be punished like people?

    And also, what is with “cancel culture?” Is the left becoming too extreme or is this just all a part of changing the normal way we think? Donald Trump and Lindsay Graham say Democrats have gone nuts but is this true? Should we killing cancel culture or is cancel culture crucial? Mike breaks it all down!!!

    Removing The Racism, Remixing 5-0, Voter Suppression Revisited

    Removing The Racism, Remixing 5-0, Voter Suppression Revisited

    TheUSAPodcast Episode 137 with Mike Riley

    In this episode Mike digs into how the whole world is beginning to reject the ideals, principles and customs of systemic racism in the wake of the George Floyd killing. Many States are even going as far as removing their relics that pay homage to the old Confederacy which many see as a monument to America's racist past. But not all are on board with this concept. Donald Trump is not interested in renaming forts or tearing down statues in the name of removing racism. But why?

    Also, with many calling for serious police reforms the question of what to do next is constantly coming up. Calls to defund the police and even disband police departments have been made but what does this really mean. Mike breaks it down.

    Plus, with the elections coming up,many fear that voter suppression tactics may come into play. On Tuesday, several states voted in their primary elections, but some states, such as Georgia, went through a tough episode featuring long lines and mistreatment of absentee ballots. What does this all mean and can we expect this in November?

    Black Death & The Poetic Justice System

    Black Death & The Poetic Justice System

    TheUSAPodcast Ep 134 with Mike Riley

    The justice system in America is supposed to be a system that is fair and equal, with the goal of simply upholding the law. But in America that is not always the case.

    In this episode Mike talks about the inequality that plagues the Justice System! Mike breaks down how there are 2 different Justice systems that serve two purposes with one aimed at controlling African Americans and one aimed at protecting those in power. With the death of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor have raised many questions when it comes to justice for blacks in America.

    Likewise, the installation of Bill Barr as Attorney General has it’s own dealings when it comes to the Justice System. By allowing Michael Flynn to reject his plea deal, many people are saying Bill Barr is nothing more than Donald Trump’s personal attorney general. Is this true? And what does this mean when it comes to Justice

Love it

Met the hosts at Outlier podcast festival in LA! Love the premise of the show, and the way Mike and Ali approach hard topics. I feel like I’m learning alongside them!

Essential Educainment

Educainment is a word I just made up that combines entertainment with education. Sadly that word wasn’t out there already so I took matters into my own hands.

This podcast is great. Mike is funny and very chill and doesn’t yell at you, but you can feel his passion for politics. In a time like ours we need a guy like that to break down what’s happening in this political tornado around us.

Gotta stay up to speed to keep up with evildoers!
