Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)   It's Thursday, the day we get together with Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. We'll have a serious discussion today about the failure of the Democratic Party to stop the American Taliban's takeover of our country. Yes, I'm referring to the Orwellian law that went into effect in Texas, now with the Trump-packed Supreme Court's seal of approval. It not only criminalizes abortion in the state, but deputizes random idiots to target women who are even considering [...]

Download here or click below to play (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!)     We knew that there weren't 17 Republicans with integrity in the Senate, but that doesn't make it any easier when they put their jobs and political party ahead of the nation. But that's exactly what they did on Saturday as the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump ended with an acquittal. And as he tends to do, Trump won by losing the popular vote! The final tally was 57 for conviction, 43 against. And he wins! Opposite world indeed. Lisa Graves [...]

Download here or click below to play     There are a dozen or more serious news stories we're following -- from the killer virus that's taking over the world to the madman occupying the oval office. One story that stood out to me among the mountains of morass  was out of Portland, where what appeared to be government brownshirts snatching protesters off the streets! Here's video I played on today's show of one of these apprehensions. (It's not an arrest, right?
