Soft Power

Mar. 23rd, 2017

Millions of Headlines

Mar. 16th, 2017

Headlines are coming at us a rapid pace these days.  In this episode, we talk about a few and discuss the importance of remaining engaged.


Muslim Ban 2.0

Mar. 9th, 2017

     President Trump signed a new executive order that banned immigrants from 6 majority-Muslim countries, replacing a previous order that was stricken down by the courts.  This one is a little more logical and addresses specific legal concerns that the courts had with the previous one.  But does that make it sound policy?  We discuss in today’s episode.


Root and Branch

Mar. 2nd, 2017

     Republicans have been promising for the better part of 7 years to repeal Obamacare should they get the chance.  But voters have other ideas.  What’s the Republican plan for dealing with the repealing and replacing of the health care law?  We discuss in today’s episode.


Calls and Leaks

Feb. 23rd, 2017

     Michael Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Advisor recently over calls he made to a Russian Ambassador.  Donald Trump recently stated that the real story on the issue is the leaks coming out of his administration, not the calls themselves.  How right is he?  We attempt to answer in this week’s episode.


Tea Party Redux 

Feb. 16th, 2017

     Protest groups have sprung up on the left aimed at stopping the agenda of Donald Trump.  The groups employ many of the same tactics used by the Tea Party when they first organized back in 2009/2010.  The tactics are effective.  But are they what’s best for the nation?  We discuss in today’s episode.


Drowning in the Swamp

Feb. 9th, 2017

     Donald Trump was elected on a message of disruption.  Have actions in the first several weeks of his presidency served to drain the swamp or increase its levels?  We attempt to answer in today’s episode.


From Russia with Love

Feb. 2nd, 2017

     Numerous US intelligence agencies are investigating ties between members of Donald Trump’s inner circle and high ranking officials within the Russian government.  What was the nature of these ties and how close were they?  We take a broad view of the relationship and attempt to explain why they paint a troubling picture.
