Mike Lux is producing videos under the moniker of "The Politics Guy" these days. Mike has been a force in progressive politics for four decades as a strategist and presidential advisor. He joins us today to weigh in as a champion of progressive candidates and causes on the first night of the first Democratic debates of the 2020 presidential elections, and about the final rulings handed down this morning by the Supreme Court. Needless to say, there's a lot to talk about!

In one video, a contractor seems to brag about sending homeless and mentally ill people to harass Republicans. [...]

Hillary Clinton has been caught in massive lies about her private email server, as detailed in the State Dept's IG report issued yesterday. We'll have all the details on why this IS a big story.

Earlier this morning, I put up a guest editorial from Jennifer Nix and Mark Myers that first appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle last week. Since the paper is behind a paywall, Jen and Mark gave me permission to repost "He Said She Said: The superdelegates' outsize role." Click over and read all about the Democratic Party's very undemocratic dirty little secret (that's not so secret any more!) Jennifer Nix and Mark Myers joined me for the last half hour of today's show to try to explain the history of the superdelegate, how and when they vote, and how we might [...]
