Recorded May 27, 2016. We're very excited to be able welcome U.S. Congressional candidate Tim Canova for an interview with our own Barry (Dr. K.) Kaufman and Host Darren Stephens! Tim's opponent is payday loan industry-supported Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida who, in her role as COMPLETELY NONPARTISAN DNC chairperson has very obviously, carefully worked to ensure the success of HER chosen candidate Hillary Clinton, doing things like stacking debate audiences with Clinton supporters, planning debates during times when nobody is watching and more. But worse from the standpoint of anyone who cares about little D democracy is how very much she is in bed with some of the worst high-dollar players in establishment politics. Tim Canova is fighting the good fight -- and was just recently supported by Democracy For America (DFA). LEARN MUCH MORE by going to timcanova.com!

Recorded May 19th, 2016. The Democratic Party and the media rush to portray Bernie Sanders and his supporters as violent radicals, but the only violence displayed at the Nevada Convention was the quashing of the democratic process by the Democratic Party itself! Which sounds an awful lot like what the Democratic Party accuses those scary Republicans of.

Speaking of Republicans, guess whose lobbyists are "hosting" the Democratic National convention? Last podcast we told how Debbie Wasserman Schultz was rigging the convention against Bernie. Well, Establishment Democrats appear thrilled to have a gaggle of pro-Wall Street, anti-Social Security, Comcast-connected (anti-net neutrality) and Republican-lobbying "hosts" running their convention, again blurring the distinction between the two parties. 

And what can you do about "Payday Loan" Debbie Wasserman Schultz? You can support her opponent Tim Canova for Congress, that's what! He endorsed Bernie, Bernie has endorsed him, so now it is time for progressives to band together and oust an Establishment Democrat who represents everything that is amiss in our political system.

May 16, 2016

Recorded May 13th, 2016. Establishment Democrats are calling for Bernie Sanders to drop out of the race, but it's not just because they're concerned about exposing the hypocrisy and poor judgment of their anointed candidate. Calls for party unity fall on deaf ears as Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC look to silence Bernie's progressive agenda and empower the banksters at the Democratic Convention in July.

Rachel Maddow finds Bernie's discussion of MSNBC's corporate ownership by Comcast "AWKWARD." Gosh, wonder why it's such a threat to democracy to have massive media conglomerates invested in political dynasty?? Speed-listen your way through all the corporate media who have a vested interest in a Hillary Clinton presidency, once again affirming Bernie's assertion of a rigged system.

Sorry President Obama! We're no longer supposed to talk about a "rigged system," because as he said in his Howard University commencement speech, thinking the system is rigged "will lead to more cynicism, not participation--and less participation and a downward spiral of more injustice, anger and despair." We discuss why "hope and change" have been transformed into "despair and incrementalism," and how Obama has been forced to turn from "Yes We Can!" to, um, "No We Can't."

May 9, 2016

Recorded May 5th, 2016. The overlords of the corporate media have cast their final judgement--it's Trump vs Clinton in the general election. Shouldn't Bernie just bow out gracefully and allow these two to have at it? Shouldn't we allow the Democratic Party to use Trump to petrify Establishment Democrats into supporting Clinton and shaming progressives into "uniting" with the party against Trump. Dr K. says no to both ideas and exposes the tactics of distraction and coercion employed by the Democratic Party and their media.

Remember when Maddow and the rest expressed disbelief regarding Bernie and his campaign's accusations of money laundering against the "Hillary Victory Fund"? We have the proof of the collusion between the DNC and Hillary's campaign, and the illusion that the money raised is going to help downballot candidates. So THIS is the progressive candidate who is going to fight for campaign finance Reform?

Also in this podcast: an interview with Shana East and Jackrabbit Pollack of The Peoples' Convention, which will be convening in Philadelphia prior to the DNC convention in July. The Peoples' Convention plans to ratify a Peoples' Platform, with the aim of influencing DNC convention outcomes and laying the groundwork for a national grassroots movement. They will also be lobbying Bernie's presidential campaign to collaborate with the grassroots in order to help build and sustain the political revolution.

Speaking of people... Hey, PEOPLE! Don't back down! Join the political revolution and Feel the Bern!

May 1, 2016

Recorded April 29th, 2016. Bernie's laying off of part of his campaign staff finally gets him widespread media coverage, but the real story is the good news that many of those staffers are already organizing to get progressives who align with Bernie's platform into Congress. Regardless of the math, here is more proof that this is not the end, but only the beginning of a return to core Democratic values.

Dr K is not quite ready to accept Hillary's invitation to join her "pragmatic progressive" movement. Clinton says she wants to bring people together and not tear them apart, but apparently only if you come together with Establishment Democrats to throw millions of low and middle-income Americans under the bus when it comes to healthcare, education and child care.

And we talk to a TRUE PROGRESSIVE (like Senator Sanders) who at the age of 25 has a novel and innovative means of winning a grassroots congressional campaign against a Democratic machine politician in New Jersey. ALEX LAW is the future of the progressive political revolution, again showing how Bernie's candidacy is transforming politics from the ground up. See Alex's incredibly comprehensive and educational website at www.alexlawforcongress.com to see how you can get involved in his grassroots campaign.
