Every Thursday, we're joined by Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC for a post-mortem on Tuesday's elections that showed trouble for Trump. Plus Biden using right wing talking points to accuse Elizabeth Warren of using right wing talking points. ***Update*** The video of today's show was blocked by YouTube because I played that Samantha Bee clip, so they copyright violated me. I went back and edited out the offending clip. But here it is for your laughing pleasure...
Lots of breaking news again today, as it is a day ending with a 'y'. After an update on the latest, I turn to today's guest- Progressive Political Strategist Mike Lux who, like many of us, has been grappling with the choice between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Mike made his choice, and shares it with us. He announced his endorsement in this article for Daily Kos. And just today, he published another article about how the Wall Street crowd is afraid of Warren, "My, How The Wealthy and Powerful Are Howling."

Tonight is the third of the Democratic primary debates and only (!) 10 candidates qualified, so it's just one night. But the knives are out for Elizabeth Warren, and I have a problem with that. I'll explain. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein will be here to talk politics, and the latest problems with Pelosi- not only hedging on impeachment, but keeping an assault weapons ban from passing the House.
Today is the 18th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, and Donald Trump remains an embarrassment to our nation. Today also marks six months since the last official White House Press Briefing from the press secretary. We'll open the show, as usual, with something funny, and then take a look at the day's news. Our guest today is Krystal Ball, host of Rising on Hill TV, an awesome woman and outspoken progressive advocate, one of the few remaining in the corporate media.
What a week! The second of the Democratic 2020 primary debates is/are history. Congress is on recess until September. And a majority of the House Democratic Caucus now supports impeachment. We'll go through all of it and more, and chat with John Nichols of The Nation about where we go next.
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!
