Recorded April 26th, 2016. The path to the nomination has always been steep, but even after setbacks there's still an urgent need to continue to get out the vote to affect the platform for the Democratic Convention. Also.... what? This thing is actually NOT OVER no matter what Rachel and the mainstream media say! Keep Berning and keep the revolution alive!

Recorded April 24th, 2016. 

Supporters are clamoring for Bernie to run as an Independent in response to Democratic Party collusion against him. While the changing demographics in America's voting population might favor such a change, we discuss why the clock and recent history do not. … Continued withdrawal from the Obamacare health insurance exchanges by major insurers are signaling the unsustainability of for-profit insurers covering low and middle-income Americans. Colorado takes the lead with an upcoming ballot initiative favoring Single Payer, and opposition to that measure proves the REAL reason Bernie's vision for access to health care in America "just doesn't add up:" it doesn’t keep money flowing into healthcare insurance industry coffers. … Chris Matthews is right: Bernie's campaign ad implying that legislators receive $200,000/hr for speeches is wrong. Okay, Chris – sitting elected officials cannot give paid speeches. But Matthews is really perturbed at Bernie's implication that the hard-working politicians in the Capitol building are somehow corrupt and on the take. We prove just how right Bernie is. Especially as the speechmaker Bernie is actually talking about (an ex-Secretary of State) serves a wide variety of special interests. The truth shall set you free – and assure that we all keep Feeling the Bern!

Recorded April 20th, 2016. Despite the fact that 3 million independent voters in New York were disenfranchised and 125,000 voters were mysteriously purged from the voter rolls in Brooklyn (what a coincidence!), Bernie won 50 out of 62 counties in the state and gained 106 delegates compared to Hillary's 139. There are 1400 delegates left to allot, and while the path to victory is a narrow one, we can help Bernie close the gap and make it to the convention.

And a reality check--why are we so enthusiastic about Bernie in the first place? Because his moral compass and message is not directed by political parties, polling or political expediency. Just his TRUTH-TELLING in the race has advanced progressive causes and exposed to America, most importantly to America's youth, that our political system is not at all what democracy looks like. And the only way to change it is by becoming a part of it.

Recorded April 17th, 2016. Bernie makes history by breaking a major US presidential campaign taboo by offering an honest assessment of what it will really take to achieve lasting peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We offer not only evidence that once again Bernie's remedy to perpetual war is the right one, but a challenge to Israel that will almost assuredly require new leadership that thinks along the lines of the man who could be our first Jewish president. Dr. K. also raised the origins of Hillary's characteristically poor foreign policy judgement in calling for continued military escalation in the region -- Darren guesses right: follow the money.

Also on the show: the clash between dirty money's influence and the campaign against it reached a boiling point at the New York debate. Does it matter that Bernie exposed Hillary's unwillingness to come clean with the American people on a range of vital issues, or that she mentioned Obama 48 times but was more than willing to throw him under the bus when necessary?

Recorded April 10, 2016. Do you wonder why Bernie just won Wyoming... but Clinton got more superdelegates? Dr. K. lets us know, with an analysis from an excellent article at Counterpunch.org. Bernie gets an invite from a group at the Vatican the same time Hillary's hosting another $2,700 fundraiser... which candidate shares Pope Francis's moral center as concerns the neediest among us? And an organizing minute! Dr. K. gives a spirited battle cry as we look ahead to New York! FTB, people!

Apr 7, 2016

Recorded April 6, 2016 Bernie had a big win in Wisconsin and Dr. K. gives his analysis while Darren chimes in as usual. There is gratuitous singing for tenuous benefit and the alarmingly steep climb we have to grab any possibility of victory in New York. But the gap is closing and we can get there if we keep working! Feel the Bern and... onward!

Apr 4, 2016

 

Recorded April 1, 2016. Bernie reeeally ticked off Rachel Maddow by saying to her face what thinking people have known all along: anything Donald Trump says does not a newsworthy story make! Dr. K. has a cogent analysis of the Maddow/Sanders/Clinton imbroglio over Trump's idiotic abortion remarks. Hillary is confronted with her connection to fracking and sees red. AND AN INTERVIEW with Amanda Moore of Reddit's Grassroots Select! All this and the usual nonsense and random singing for no particular reason. Listen, learn and Feel The Bern!
