Our first interview! On the show is Justin Renquist of the Superdelegates Task Force Army? What? Superdelegates? Who are they and why do I care? You care because Hillary has done so much backroom dealing that she has a VASTLY larger group of these special delegates who DO NOT HAVE TO VOTE by the will of the people! How to fight them? By letting them know we're watching and, as most of them are elected officials, we can vote them out of office! Justin tells us how to get involved. Dr. K. points out that even in the shadow of the Laquan MacDonald murder, although Martin O'Malley and Bernie were there, Hillary skipped the Black Lives Matter candidates forum. (Or is she in the GOP now? They all gave it a pass, except for Ben Carson.) Oh, and Hillary snubs MoveOn.org, too. Dr. K.'s theory? With so many superdelegates spoken for, Hillary feels she can coast to the nomination. It's time to get involved, and make Hillary FEEL THE BERN!
We start off this week's podcast with GOOD NEWS -- the American Postal Workers' Union has landed in the Sanders column -- a major endorsement! And Ohio state senator and minority whip Nina Turner SWITCHED from Clinton to Sanders! Still, with Clinton's deep ties to the military-industrial complex and with a huge numbers advantage in terms of superdelegates, there's much work to be done. Superdelegates? You mean those party insiders who can make YOUR vote meaningless? Yes, those guys! Dr. K. gives the details and tells how you can turn things around. When you learn how the Democratic process is being flouted -- and what you can do to make sure that doesn't happen, you will certainly FEEL THE BERN!
Gosh almighty! Wouldn't it be GREAT if our Bernie could get so much love from an audience?? He just has the darndest time getting appreciation from a crowd. Wotta shame. LOLOL... Dr. K. and Darren talk about the Democratic debate and what it sounded like for Debra Wasserman Schultz's hand-picked big-dollar donors to make their voices heard. Which is only fair -- they paid to get in, after all. (This is an INVITATION ONLY event.) Although it "sickened" Dr. K. to hear the stuff they were applauding for, as he acknowledged, this debate could be looked on as an excellent test debate for when Bernie is speaking across the stage to a REPUBLICAN -- because that's what Hillary sounded like. Hear this and other in-depth analysis and FEEL THE BERN with Darren and Dr. K.!
Bernie Sanders is promoting not just a presidential candidacy, but as the true progressive in the race, he's also promoting a movement. Unfortunately, there are business-oriented "pragmatics" like the very well-organized group The Third Way who sound EXACTLY like Republicans! Dr. K. gives the details. Also in this podcast: Foreign Policy Part II, Bernie's Grounding Fossil Fuels and Going It Alone on "Joint" Legislation. FEEL THE BERN -- without adding to your carbon footprint!
The First of Two Parts -- Foreign Policy: Hillary Strong, Bernie Weak? Follow the money to learn more about Hillary's brand of statesmanship. (Next week we'll learn about Bernie's foreign policy strengths.) Darren's jaw drops when he hears about shocking coincidences between the timing of donations to the Clinton Global Initiative and foreign regimes receiving zillions of dollars in U.S. weapons -- the numbers are distinctly different than when Bush was in office. Also this week: Those Nutty Republicans, Rachel Maddow shows how Bernie "evolved" on same sex marriage and an organizing call to action for Illinois and Iowa. You'll get HOT when you hear what's revealed here -- no better way to Feel The Bern!
