Did you hear that your Congress overwhelmingly approved a $717 billion military spending bill which included an $82 BILLION INCREASE (more than the entire military budget of Russia)? Or that Bernie Sanders' amendment to audit the Department of Defense, (which somehow lost track of up to $20 TRILLION over the past few years) was voted down by Republicans and Democrats alike? How about Bernie's bill to end our involvement in Saudi Arabia's illegal bombing of Yemen...again blocked by Democrats? Of COURSE you didn't, because everyone's obsessing over the Trump circus and Russia's meddling in our "democracy..." diverting attention from the fact that neither party actually cares about democracy! 

But Democrats really do care about immigrants and refugees, right? Then why are there messages from Democrats at all levels warning that calls to abolish ICE serve as a "distraction" and "allow president Trump to paint Democrats as being for open borders?" Why are Dems unwilling to stand up against a rogue agency spawned after 9/11 that systematically terrorizes immigrants and violates their constitutional rights? Party leaders again fail to stand for what's morally right, favoring donors and highly paid (and highly inaccurate) political consultants over the safety and civil rights of immigrants. 

As Bernie says, it'll take millions of us to spread the word about the realities of our corrupt political system and raise awareness about stories that have real-world consequences for the 99%. Start binge-posting the truth and/or binge-calling your representatives! Find local progressive groups and candidates you can become involved with! When faced with a media circus and corrupt political system, it's what Bernie Sanders would do!

The What Would Bernie Sanders Do Podcast is back! Why? Well, even when broadcast media thinks they are "fact-checking" or dispelling the lies about immigration coming from the Trump administration, the lies are still repeated far more than the truth. The lack of accurate and persistent pushback from the talking heads on CNN, MSNBC and NPR led Dr K to revive the podcast. If THEY are going to let Republicans and conservatives continue their fearmongering unabated, WE aren't! To counter the five biggest immigration lies, we offer facts you can use when confronted with conservative excuses for our punitive and superfluous immigration policy. 
 
As Democratic Socialist Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez emerges victorious over establishment Democrat Joseph Crowley in New York's 14th Congressional District, her statement on the virtues of Democratic Socialism resonates with constituents of all colors and religions. What it reveals is that the current conflict in our country is not left versus right or Republican versus Democrat, but humanity versus inhumanity. A new wave of legislators will restore our society's grip on reality by doing what's right for the people, not a blue wave that'll do what's right for the donors. 
 
The wisest judges in the land no longer make decisions based on precedent but on this president. The John Roberts majority proves in two of the Supreme Court's latest decisions that the law of the land is deceiving women and showing clear prejudice against Muslims based upon the premise of "national security." We debunk the court's argument and expose the Supreme Court’s majority for what it is--a branch of Fox News and thus the White House. 
 
Are you a humane individual? You might think so, but play along with our new game show "How's Your Humanity?" and see if you're as compassionate as you think! And we suggest groups you can contact to help immigrants fight back. so stay involved, protest, march, spread reality on social media and support humane candidates on the local level, and you will forever FEEL THE BERN!!
