The mainstream media is trying to erase Bernie Sanders. They’ve hated him since 2015—we’ve been dealing with this for four years now—but this time their attempts to bury his campaign are so brazen and conspicuous it can no longer NOT be called out by everyone. This includes people who don’t support Bernie Sanders, but are concerned with fairness and objectivity and realize this may one day harm a candidate they support in the future. With that being said, we’ll discuss the #BernieBlackout and talk about the election results, Elizabeth Warren’s plan to finance Medicare For All, Trump’s takeover of the federal judiciary, a new warning from scientists about climate change, Amazon’s attempt to defeat socialist Kshama Sawant, and we’ll be joined by Nomiki Konst and Jovanka Beckles to talk about the launch of their new Justice Democrats-esque organization called Matriarch. We’ll close the show by talking to 2020 congressional candidate Russ Cirincione who’s running against Frank Pallone in New Jersey’s 6th congressional district.
If you want to beat Donald Trump in 2020, it’s important to recognize that Bernie Sanders is our best bet. Rashida Tlaib knows this, and she officially endorsed Bernie Sanders. On top of that Ilhan Omar correctly pointed out that a Biden or Buttigieg nomination would be “tragic” likely because she knows this would facilitate another Trump victory. Even non-political figures like ATL-based Rapper T.I. knows Bernie can win because he’s the “antithesis” of Donald Trump. The writing is on the wall: Bernie can beat Donald Trump. We’ll zero in on that discussion in this episode and also talk about Bill Maher’s spin of Bernie’s ‘Squad’ endorsements, Trump at the World Series, Buttigieg’s problem attracting black voters, support for Medicare For All, and also Fox News’ criticism of Democrats that fly in airplanes (again). We’ll also talk to congressional candidate Jason Call from Washington state.
Hillary Clinton… Jill Stein… Tulsi Gabbard… Bernie Sanders… 2016 is back! Hillary Clinton makes a not-so-triumphant return to smear Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein, which catalyzed a national conversation (for the millionth time) about 2016 election and who—besides Hillary, of course—is to blame. So, here’s the thing, 2016—like it or not—will be an election year we’re going to continue to discuss for the foreseeable future; so if we’re going to relive it, let’s actually change the outcome this time. Let’s get Bernie Sanders elected! And while we’re on the subject of 2016, we’ll talk to Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s new primary challenger, Jen Perelman, about her campaign to oust one of the most corrupt members of Congress.
