THE HOME FOR PROGRESSIVE POLITICS

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.

THE HOME FOR PROGRESSIVE POLITICS

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.
