Recorded August 19, 2016. Hillary Clinton continues to show why the excitement over Bernie "pushing her to the left" and the "most progressive Democratic platform ever" is just empty rhetoric. Clinton chooses ardently pro-TPP, pro-fracking Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to chair her transition team, which means thousands of appointments will be made by a free-trade, fossil-fuel industry stalwart. Argh. 

The debate between Tim Canova and Debbie Wasserman Schultz reveals the truth--Hillary and Debbie were separated at birth. And according to Dr K., both are afflicted with DFS, Donor Fronting Syndrome, and both clearly feel entitled to say anything and do anything to maintain their positions of power.

The main problem with a privatized health care system, aka Obamacare, rears its head as Aetna's CEO asserts his authority over the Department of Justice and pulls his company out of most health care exchanges. Perhaps Democrats will tone down their cheering for a system that puts bankers in charge of our healthcare.

Recorded August 12, 2016. The FDA just ordered the DEA to maintain marijuana as a Class 1 (prohibited) substance, because it has no "currently accepted medical use" and "the known risks of marijuana use have not been shown to be outweighed by specific benefits." We tell you how Bernie saw it coming and why the FDA would make such anti-scientific claims (and it's not because of what they're smoking).

What?? Dr K. is a "privileged, sexist lunatic?" Well, he according to posts on social media pertaining to those who accuse Hillary Clinton of being the evader-in-chief. Are we as a people following the example of Clinton, Trump and their media in using identity politics to change the subject -- and obscure the truth? It's a slippery slope, choosing name-calling over reality. 
 
The further we get from the DNC, the more she's slip slidin' away... As soon as Hillary's not on stage holding Bernie's hand, she starts reaching for the hands of war criminals from the past. Host Darren is incredulous: Is she allying herself with Kissinger and Rice -- really? But this isn't just a "strategy" to beat the orange Creamsicle in the general election. It's actually an affirmation of Clinton's penchant for war. 
 
Hey, don't despair--Berniecrats are on the rise nationwide! We summarize several races and offer hope for an eventual change in the buyout of our democracy. Attend an Our Revolution event in your area and don't let 'em Douse the Bern!

Recorded August 7, 2016. THE REVITALIZED AND REINVIGORATED WWBSD PODCAST IS BACK! We've got a new opening and new mission -- and even a SPONSOR! 

First, we discuss a Democratic National Convention delegate's testimony and how the party's actions belie calls for "unity" and a move toward a progressive platform.

Speaking of actions not matching words, Joe Biden endorses Debbie Wasserman Schultz at a "Whip and Dip" in Florida, calling her a connected and influential party insider while marginalizing progressive opponent Tim Canova as a political lightweight. This is your reborn progressive Democratic Party...in reality just like the old one. Aargh! Say it ain't so, Joe!

Hillary Clinton short-circuits, and we have them um, "audio" to prove it! Dr K. always knew her circuitry would become worn. Perhaps this admission by Clinton herself explains her inexplicable behavior. Hopefully her circuits won't fizzle out when she receives that 3:00 AM phone call...

Bill Maher and a few of his fellow millionaires shout down Dr. Cornel West when he questions Hillary Clinton's judgment about taking out Gaddafi in Libya. Wait a minute... Are Democrats refusing to condemn the same deceptive tactics once used by George W. Bush to take us to war in Iraq? And why the silence regarding Nobel Peace Prize winner President Obama bombing seven countries without a declaration of war? Gosh, the Muslims who live there are going to get SO angry... 

We won't remain silent, and neither should you! Don't allow corporate media and Democrats to suppress the truth in favor of their donors! Let the Democrat establishment know we're out here watching, and when they screw up, let them FEEL THE BERN!!
