Adios Middle East

May 19th, 2016

     Recent facts have to come to light about the how the Obama administration sold the nuclear deal with Iran to Congress. Many on the right feel that the White House was misleading. But the truly important facts of the recent revelations may center on the timing of the negotiations instead of the substance. We’ll explain.

Donald Trump has been the subject of quite a few headlines over course of the past year. But in dealing with the real estate mogul turned presidential hopeful is the press in danger of becoming part of the problem they are reportedly trying to prevent? We discuss in today’s episode.


Establishment GOP in Denial

May 12th, 2016

     The Republican Primary is over and Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee. But is the GOP Establishment in denial about what just transpired and the current state of their party? Also, political watchers have been concentrating on state by state results and delegate counts but have we missed the big story of this election cycle and the one that has the potential to affect our politics for years to come? We discuss in today’s episode.


Panama Papers and the Rigged Economy - Rebroadcast

May 5th, 2016

     Recent revelations have offered a glimpse into the secretive world of offshore bank accounts used to shield wealth from tax collection by governments. The Panama Papers have implicated 140 politicians from more than 50 countries, including 12 current and former heads of state. The revelations provide evidence that there are two sets of rules at play in the global economy: one for the wealthiest, most powerful individuals & corporations, and one for average citizens.

In this episode we discuss the Panama Papers and how it relates to the debate going on in this country over the rigged economy, the minimum wage, Democratic challenger Bernie Sanders’ campaign promises and more.


Trump 2.0

April 28th, 2016

Recent additions to the Trump campaign have tried to convince the candidate to behave more presidentially. They’ve tried to convince him to read from Teleprompters, buy traditional forms of media and tone down the fiery rhetoric. Is this something the candidate wants to do and perhaps more importantly, something he’d be better off for doing?

Recent victories have all but locked up the Democratic Primary for Hillary Clinton yet her challenger, Bernie Sanders, has vowed to take the fight all the way to the convention. What are the implications for doing so and will the costs outweigh the benefits?

We discuss in today’s episode.


Outsmarting ISIS and Bernie Being Stubborn

April 14th, 2016

     The Obama administration announced this week it will be sending an additional 217 special operations officers to Iraq to aid in the fight against ISIS. The US has been fighting ISIS for close to two years at a cost of about $6 billion and counting, with the results being at best, mixed. Are there smarter ways we could be addressing the conflict?

The Democratic Presidential Primary has, up until this point, been a rather collegial, good-natured affair. Not anymore. Tensions have risen between the campaigns in recent weeks with Clinton looking to wrap the primary process up and Sanders refusing to drop out. Has the Democratic Primary passed the optimal point of benefit for the Party as a whole?

We discuss in today’s episode.

Ted Cruz and the Shadow Primary

April 7th, 2016

How important is realizing that winning a state’s primary is only the beginning and not the end of the delegate selection process?

Ted Cruz has become the candidate of choice for the Republican establishment. What’s behind the GOP establishment’s newfound affinity for Ted Cruz?

We discuss these issues and more in today’s episode.
