THE HOME FOR PROGRESSIVE POLITICS

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode we address the latest on the midterm elections and Democrats' remarkable "post-election" success.  Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, President Trump, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and other criminals feeling the heat!  The California Camp fires become the deadliest in the state's history.  British PM Teresa May's efforts to accomplish Brexit mirror the problems Republicans have in trying to sell a product with nothing to recommend it.  Amazon makes official the locations of its second headquarters, and demonstrates again the evils of relocation deals.  We celebrate Veterans Day on the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, and note how the GOP celebration includes undermining just about everything we won during World War I, as well as the veterans we pretend to celebrate.

THE HOME FOR PROGRESSIVE POLITICS

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode we address the midterm elections: who won; what they mean; and what they portend for the future.  Did the capture of the House by Democrats save US democracy?  How should Democrats utilize their newfound power?  Also, Trump fires Attorney General Sessions, and what that might mean for democracy.  The latest mass murder indicates again that this is just standard operating procedure in the US, but perhaps there is some hope for addressing this crisis.  Amazon announces the locations of its second headquarters.  What does this mean for NY City, one of the "winning" bidders?

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode, why the city of Pittsburgh, and all decent people, would reject the provocateur-in-chief.  While people reach out for unity in the face of rising acts of hate-inspired violence, President Trump and the Republican party continue to embolden hate-mongers and criminals, as stoking hate is Republican electoral politics.  We explore what is at stake in the upcoming midterm elections, and what a failure to reject Trump and the Republican party will likely mean for what will be left of America.  VOTE!

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode, the latest on the cover-up of the murder of a dissident journalist by Saudi Arabia, with the assistance of the US administration.  How, through his repugnance and abdication of US leadership, President Trump, along with his political party, have emboldened criminal and anti-democratic activity here and around the world.  We address the latest on the bombs mailed to Trump's opponents and targets of his vitriol.  A Trump supporter has been arrested, and the President's hollow calls for unity and civility are undermined by his own rhetoric and actions.  Even while this is going on, he cannot help but stoke the anger and fears of his supporters as it continues to represent his party's only path to political power.  We again call on voters to rescue this country in less than two weeks.

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode, we again consider how low a political party in America can sink.  We look to the killing of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the Trump administration's efforts to help Saudi Arabia cover up the crime.  We explore our having underestimated the President of the United States with respect to all the crimes he has been willing to cover up, now likely including not only attempted rape, but murder. We look to how Senate Republicans broke a deal with Senate Democrats in order to continue filling our federal judiciary with political appratchiks rather than jurists, regardless of its impact on the US Senate and basic rules of decency.  Republicans are taking the long game with their judicial picks, and we dispel any notion that the federal judges they are putting on the federal benches will prove to put politics aside in their decisions.  We talk about how recent stock market events demonstrate that the critics of the GOP tax bill were right, but Republicans will spin it otherwise, with the help of the media.  Finally, we consider whether, in fact, our civic institutions are holding, or whether we should be very, very afraid.  We again call on voters to rescue this country in two weeks.

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode, we consider how low a political party in America can sink.  We explore the news of the week and how it all evidences a political party that has given up any pretense of wanting to govern for all Americans.  The reaction to Nikki Haley's resignation demonstrates how low the bar has been set for members of this administration.  The climate threat continues to grow for everyone other than US Republicans, even as Hurricane Michael proves it can be ignored, but not avoided.  Saudi Arabia kills a journalist and US again displays its abdication of its world leadership role.  Trump is an international  criminal and his resume is phony...and his base doesn't care.  GOP again demonstrates it can only stay in power through lies, bigotry, and voter suppression.  Brett Kavanaugh joins the Supreme Court and thereby reduces whatever legitimacy it had left.  Republicans show what they are made of.

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode, we consider the spectacle of the President of the United States being laughed at at the United Nations; and then lying about it.  We thank our founder and producer, Damian Hardeen, for giving birth to Forward Nation Radio and wish him the best of luck as he embarks on his new career in media.  And we spend the bulk of our show discussing the "performance" of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the implications of a Republican party committed to ramming through the appointment to the Supreme Court of a demonstrated liar, partisan, and temperamentally unsuited likely sexual predator.

This Week’s Discussion:

In this week’s episode, we remember on John McCain after his recent passing.  A senator and war hero, we call upon the times when he represented a rift in the Republican Party, but also remember when his maverick personality was seemingly not so evident.

How the “swamp” seems to be growing each passing week.  Focusing on the recent events of the Manafort conviction and Cohen plea, there appears to be no end to the level of corruption and injustice occurring within both the Trump administration and Republican Party.
