Failure to Govern

April 18, 2024In the last election, the American voters, in their infinite wisdom, gave a majority to Republicans in the House of Representatives. Since that happened, things have … well, been a bit of a zoo. The House GOP has expelled one Speaker and is on the verge of doing it a second time, all because the ex and the soon-to-be ex Speakers dared to compromise with Democrats to get something done. This is where we are in America – so divided that the only safe way to govern is simply not to govern at all. And in a time of tension across the globe, this is not the time for the GOP to refuse to show up for work. This and more with our guests: Scott Paul fo the Alliance for American Manufacturing, and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of OSHA Jordan Barab.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?

April 17, 2024The Trump trial is off and running as lawyers from both sides begin the jury selection process. Trump, like any other criminal defendant, is required to be in the courtroom, but no one told him he had to be awake. Several reports have him nodding off several times during the day. We talk about the day’s events, and much more, with Ian MIllhiser of Vox and one of our friends from the UAW – Tim Hertzog of Local 677.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?

April 16, 2024It’s Tax Day, America. And by Tax Day, we mean it’s the one day of the year when we do more for the wealth class than we do on any other day of the year. As we pay, they dodge. As we dig deep, they pop champagne. And as we scrimp and save, they buy yachts with tax cuts that used to pay for schools, roads, and a better future for all. Now that better future belongs to a handful of rich dudes, and the rest of us just keep going to work and hoping that no one gets sick, and nothing breaks down.

April 12, 2024The American economy is the strongest in the world, and every indicator says we are doing well … so why don’t Americans feel optimistic about it? There are a number of reasons, and many powerful entities involved, and on today’s show, we talk not only about the numbers and the positive effects of Joe Biden’s policies, but also about the incredibly powerful forces that shout doom and gloom at us for purely partisan reasons. Our guests today are David Madland of The Center for American Progress and Julia Metraux of Mother 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?

April 11, 2024Today we have a special guest - Michael Harrison of Talkers Magazine. With decades of experience in the industry, Michael has been a witness to massive changes over the years, yet no matter how many new forms of media emerge, talk radio manages to keep a substantial audience, and in political circles, it holds tremendous power. The demise of talk radio has been greatly exaggerated.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?

April 11, 2024At election time, we tend to forget that a president is not a single person, but an entire team, not only when they campaign, but when they actually govern. For working people, a president is who he appoints to critical roles that govern labor relations, trade, and the agencies that reign in corporate greed and lawlessness. So those choosing between Trump and Biden are actually choosing much more than just a single office. We discuss this and more with today’s guests – Scott Paul of The Alliance for American Manufacturing, and Michael Harrison of Talkers Magazine.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?

April 10, 2024The American economy is booming. Huge job numbers. Record-breaking unemployment. But with how we funnel all the profits to the immorally rich, working people are seeing very little of this success. Instead, we are making a small number of billionaires, and those billionaires are taking everything and leaving nothing for the rest of us. We discuss this and more with Employment Lawyer Tom Spiggle, and also with Jacqueline Simon, the National Policy Director for AFGE.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?

Wagging the Dog

Wagging the Dog

2024-04-0956:00

April 8, 2024Over the weekend, Trump held a fundraiser, and he claims he raised $50 million (which just happens to be twice what Joe Biden raised at his fundraiser last week). And true to form, our media covered the claims as if they were true, or as if they could be true, as they typically do when Trump is obviously lying. Even the left-leaning outlets just couldn’t resist platforming the lie, as they always do, ignoring far more important stories in the process. On today’s episode, we speak to Jared Cassity of SMART – the union of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail & Transportation workers about a new rule that will increase the crew size on most trains, and we also talk to Trisha Calvarese, the Democratic Nominee in Colorado’s 4th congressional district, who will be taking on Lauren Boebert in November.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?

April 8, 2024Many of the right-wing attacks on everything from education to democracy itself, can be traced back to a foundational document called The Powell Memo, which is a document written by a former Supreme Court Justice and designed to “save capitalism” by using the power of corporations to control everything from the courts to media to what we teach to how we govern. To put it lightly, things have gone sideways, and corporate power has gotten way out of hand. We discuss this misuse of power with Tony Carrk – Executive Director of Accountable.us and Melissa Cropper – President of the Ohio Federation of Teachers.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?

April 5, 2024In red states all over America, strange things are happening. Schools are being crippled and replaced with scam voucher programs, child labor laws are being rolled back, and Republicans are openly attacking Social Security and Medicare. Generations of gains for working Americans are being clawed back, and we may just be looking at another Gilded Age in the near future, where the rich have all and working people struggle simply to survive. We discuss these issues and more with Jess Piper, Executive Director of Blue Missouri and Bob Ney, a former GOP Congressman from Ohio.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?

April 4, 2024When Roe fell, many sounded the alarm that the extreme right in America would not stop at ending bodily autonomy, and they were right. Now the right is going after IVF procedures and targeting contraception as well. Trump is on the stump calling immigrants “animals” and asking his followers daily to commit violence against his opponents, again and again promising a “bloodbath” if he loses.

April 2, 2024Trump Media, like Trump University, Trump Vodka, and Trump Steaks, and a dozen others, is losing money – a lot of money. In 2023, Trump Media lost $58 million while generating only $4 million in revenue. We discuss this newest business flop with our guest Bartlett Naylor, Financial Policy Advocate at Public Citizen. Then we speak to Zach Carter, Author and contributor at Slate.com about our booming economy and why Americans are slow to recognize the accomplishments of the current administration. 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?

April 2, 2024The Supreme Court is preparing to decide on Grant’s Pass v. Johnson, a case that essentially makes homelessness illegal by removing any and all safe places for those who do not have a home. For the first time, homelessness itself may just become a crime in our communities. We discuss this case with Author & Journalist Pat LaMarche, and then we discuss the Baltimore bridge collapse and the lack corporate responsibility for these and other disasters with Jordan Barab, former OSHA Deputy Secretary.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?

April 1, 2024Throughout our history, working people have had to fight for just about everything. Things we take for granted today had to be fought for by those who came before us. And now that corporate wealth is growing in ridiculous ways, it’s time to share that wealth with the working people who create it. To this end, it’s time to talk about shorter work weeks, higher pay, better benefits – all of it. We did it in the past, and it’s time to do it again.

March 29, 2024These days, with the Trump campaign flailing and Trump himself in need of massive amounts of cash to pay off his legal bills and judgements, the right-wing machine is in need of new and more creative ways to sheer its flock. The newest grift is a Trump bible that caters to Christian Nationalists and those who believe that religion should replace democracy in America. We discuss this grift and the very real danger behind it with Rachel Laser – CEO of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State.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?

March 28, 2024Right-wing political elites are simply laughing at the justice system here in America … and they are paying no consequences for it. In just the last week, Trump had his bond in the NY fraud case reduced, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had federal fraud charges dropped, and CPAC goon Matt Schlapp settled his harassment case without ever facing a judge. Meanwhile, a new report just dropped that says the billionaire class in American increased its wealth by 88% just in the time since the pandemic. We discuss this report, and the concept of the rich being truly above the law, with Omar Ocampo of The Institute for Policy Studies.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?

March 27, 2024For as long as there have been corporations, those corporations have wanted full control of their industries so they can make the maximum profit with a minimum of responsibility to the public. And every time we give corporations this kind of power, they put profit over safety, and people end up getting hurt, or killed. Boeing is the latest example of this, and their willingness to cut corners that literally cause planes to fall from the sky, should surprise no one.

March 25, 2024During the Reagan administration, we started a massive selloff of American manufacturing, choosing to buy cheap goods from China rather than make things here to be used here. It was a massive windfall for the wealth class, but since this time, the working class has lost trillions in wealth, and it all went to the top 1%. Now the Biden administration is trying to bring American manufacturing back, and working people are beginning to notice. Our guest today is Roxanne Brown of the United Steelworkers, who joins us to discuss their recent endorsement of Joe Biden, and why he is the only good choice for American workers.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?

March 25, 2024Saying things that aren’t entirely true has long been an American tradition during election season, but this time around, there appear to be no guardrails of any kind between the truth and the boldest of lies. Depending on which network they’re on, Republicans are either openly laying out their plans to gut Social Security & Medicare in order to “save” them, or they’re angrily denying that such a plan exists and shouting at Democrats for quoting them too accurately. In a world in which we are forced to ignore what they say, we instead look at what they do, or what they say they will do if they win … and it ain’t good for working people.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?
