February 28, 2024In this episode, we discuss a bonkers new ruling out of Alabama that bans fertility procedures like IVF, essentially keeping women who want children from accessing the scientific means to get pregnant. And to make things worse, it is very likely that other red states are likely to follow in Alabama’s footsteps, creeping closer and closer to a form of Christian Sharia Law right here in America. We discuss this and other topics related to the GOP’s push for authoritarian male rule with former Alabama Senator Doug Jones.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 27, 2024As right-wing funded AstroTurf groups are popping up all over the country, we take a look back at America’s long history of using media and fake political front groups to destroy any and all forms of working-class organizing, whether in the workplace or the in the halls of Congress.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

2024-02-2656:00

February 26, 2024It just doesn’t get much weirder than the annual CPAC conference, where the right wing of the country gathers to exchange conspiracy theories and plot out the end of democracy in America. We break down some of the nuttier moments from the conference and react to this and other stories from around the country.

Red State Child Abuse

Red State Child Abuse

2024-02-2356:00

February 23, 2024As working people across America are beginning to gain power and respect in the workplace, the response from the wealth class and the politicians they own has been to turn to children as cheap and disposable labor. As a number of GOP dominated states roll back child labor protections, we take a look at the problem and get to the bottom of why the right is so intent on abusing our kids.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 22, 2024We’re Americans, and that means we just love cheap stuff. But our addiction to cheap consumer trash didn’t happen by accident. For generations, American corporations have combed the globe for cheap, exploitable labor they can use to cut cost, cut prices, and of course, cut good-paying American jobs. On today’s show, we discuss this addiction, and how we can break it, with Scott Paul, President of The Alliance for American Manufacturing.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 20, 2024As the AI tidal wave continues, we are beginning to see how intrusive it is, or soon will be. Many workplaces now have AI monitoring system watching workers on the job and controlling their actions. And this is just the beginning.

February 19, 2024For years, the right has been pushing a narrative that would have us believe that Joe Biden and his son are hardened criminals who are out to get us – all of us. However, last week the right’s primary source for this nonsense found himself in handcuffs, charged with lying to the FBI. That’s right – it was all a big lie. More on this and also a discussion on the economy with Economics Professor Matias Vernengo of Bucknell University.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 16, 2024The Memphis Sanitation Strike – a pivotal moment in the civil rights and labor rights movements – began in February of 1968. Several weeks later, while visiting Memphis in support of this strike, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. And while history is very good at teaching us about deaths and dates, it often leaves out the details and circumstances, leaving many of us only with the where and the when, but rarely the why. And it’s the why that matters most. AFSCME President Lee Saunders joins the show to teach us about some of the details our history tends to leave out.AMFCME has created a podcast about the strike, called “I Am Story.” Find it here: https://www.iamstory.comDon’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 14, 2024The title may sound a bit dramatic, but we assure you that the threat is both real and immediate. Now that Trump has packed the courts with corporatist judges, the rich are bringing out the big guns and going after our most fundamental rights in the workplace. In new lawsuits filed by SpaceX and Trader Joe’s, the hard right is seeking to dismantle the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, destroy the NLRB that enforces labor law, and essentially destroy what’s left of the middle class. And the judges making the decision are the same ones that killed Roe vs. Wade, so none of our rights are safe.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 13, 2024As the country is trying to make sense of why Donald Trump would encourage Putin to attack out NATO allies, we are also being told by the right-wing hate machine that the “deep state” has rigged the Superbowl for its favorite pop star. And our mainstream media, always looking for a horse race, spent the week talking about a DOJ report written by a Republican hatchet man to make us worry about a candidate's age instead of another candidate’s desire to become the first American dictator.

The Jobs of the Future

The Jobs of the Future

2024-02-1256:00

February 12, 2024The Biden economy is creating good, family sustaining jobs at a pace we haven’t seen in a very long time. But the Biden Boom also brings a number of questions, like “Who is going to do these jobs?” and “How do we create all the skilled labor we’re going to need?” Today we speak to the tradesmen and union leaders who can answer those questions, and who might just be able to connect you to your last and best job. Keith Hocevar of the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Union & Tony DiPerna of The International Masonry Training and Education Foundation are our guests.For more on the careers available in the trades, go to www.bacweb.org or www.imtef.org.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 9, 2024In an extraordinary day in Congress, the GOP managed to kill its own immigration bill, and they also failed to impeach Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for absolutely no reason because they somehow forgot how to count votes. It’s a colossal waste of time and tax dollars, and all of it is designed for one purpose and one purpose alone – to stoke right-wing outrage in service of a guy currently facing 91 felony charges, a guy who’s just trying to keep himself out of prison by destroying American democracy.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 8, 2024These days, it’s not enough that we buy overpriced things, and in many cases, that we need overpriced things simply to survive. According to the Wall Street Journal, we need to be thankful for the price gouging; we need to thank our betters for their benevolence, that they allow us to overpay. Tune in to hear more about the ways corporate America is reaching into our pockets for much more than they should be owed.

February 7, 2024While the right-wing rage machine is feeding anger to the masses, the puppet masters behind the curtain are lying, cheating, and flat-out stealing all of your hard-earned money, and their favorite way to steal is to not pay the taxes the rest of us pay. We are joined by Will Rice of American for Tax Fairness, who just released a new report that shows us just how this thieving is done, and how the people we vote for refuse to do anything about it.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 6, 2024One year after corporate power destroyed a small Ohio town, too little has been done to fix what is broken, and nothing has been done to keep it from happening again. People are still sick, the problems are still there, and the company responsible is spending its money on lobbying and public relations so they can declare a victory that simply isn’t real.  In this episode, we speak to John Russell – local journalist and editor of “The Holler” about conditions on the ground, and then we talk to Jared Cassity of SMART, a union that represents a large number of rail workers, about how the lobbyists and corporate execs managed to stall and potentially kill a rail safety bill that could keep disasters like this from happening again.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

February 2, 2024In the follow up to Teamsters President Sean O’Brien’s trip to Mar-a-Lago, in which he took the now famous thumbs-up hostage photo, Donald Trump has now traveled to Teamsters HQ in DC to bully them into an endorsement that he will never deserve.

Selling the Horse Race

2024-01-3101:00:00

January 31, 2024The silly season is here again, and it appears that, from now until November, we are going to be fed a steady diet of horse race journalism, as story after story will be spun into an election story, whether the story in question is one or not. We speak with journalist and State politics expert Carolyn Fiddler about the mind-numbing state of legacy journalism, how it sold itself out for ratings, and what that means for American working families.Don’t miss our daily TV show on Free Speech TV: www.freespeech.orgFind us on:·      DirecTV (Channel 348)·      Dish (Channel 9415)·      Sling·      Roku·      Apple TV·      Amazon Fire TV·      Get the FSTV iOS app here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/free-speech-tv/id1327029481Did you miss last night’s show?

January 30, 2024Over the course of the last several decades, the wealth class has spent billions to separate us from our institutions – to turn “our” government into “the” government, so it can be demonized and used to divide us. And it worked. To bridge this divide, we’re going to have to start talking to each other again … and these days, that has become difficult, if not impossible. Do we have it in us to remake America, or will we be the puppets of the wealth class forever?
