Season 2 episode 15: the wall, the house and elizabeth warren

This is is the first episode of 2019 and we begin with the partial government shutdown over “The Wall”.

As of this episode, the House passed the Senate bill that was rejected by the previous Congress under Paul Ryan.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has refused to put it to vote saying President of The United States will not sign it.

Nancy Pelosi has called the wall an immorality.

I give my take on the wall in the episode below.

S2E6: 2018 Midterms Election Finale

Denise from California calls in to go over the results of the 2018 midterms election.

This extended episode was recorded last night, but news keeps breaking on these races every day.

As we all know by now, democrats did not have quite the blue wave hoped for, but did well none the less.

The party took back the House and made major gains in the governor’s races nationwide.

This is the first blog of the second season and we are on our third episode (can you believe it??).

But these special episode are our midterm 2018 election coverage.

I am once again joined by good friend and justice Democrat Denise from California.

While I normally look to keep the news of the day out of this coverage, but I could not help but start off this episode with several tragic stories from last week.

 

 

Fifteen bombs were allegedly put through the US postal service by a Trump fan Cesar Sayoc.

Episode Twenty: The Blue Wave

The blue wave is coming.

It was primary day in Massachusetts yesterday and another political earthquake shook the Democratic party.

Ten term democratic Congressman Mike Capuano was unseated by 44 year old Boston city council woman Ayanna Pressley.

The double digit victory is a political stunner like AOC’s in New York (although some may disagree).

In today’s show we will be talking, in part, about last week’s primaries with Denise from California.
