There are lies, damn lies, and lies masquerading as journalism and politics. Lies in the press can span the complete political spectrum and no party is exempt, but the right wing, with its echo chamber and system of ping ponging utter foolishness, seems to have a particular problem with the truth. This episode is also dedicated to my brother, Norma…
 
Biden pledges to make America’s energy 100% carbon free by 2035, and to cut emissions 50-52%...That’s the strongest pledge the US has ever made! Meanwhile, it’s said that some cops across America are training extremist right wing groups like the Oath Keepers. Fact or fiction? We talk to Clayton Moore, retired police officer and author of the book, …
 
20 cities with the largest police departments have paid over $2 billion dollars for alleged misconduct and civil rights violations from 2015-2020. How about paying future settlements from police pension funds rather than taxpayers? The brutality would drop if cops knew their future pensions would be at risk. Current gun regulations and background c…
 
As Derek Chauvin stands trial for the death of George Floyd, I reflect on the scores of similar cases I've reported -- on all ending in acquittal; Matt Gaetz is a member of Congress and rabid Trump supporter - he's in so much trouble even Trump has been advised to keep his mouth shut; and Part II of my interview with renowned poet and screenwriter,…
 
Biden's first 100 days and all the media focuses on whether he will run again in 2024? CEOs of Facebook, Twitter, and Google faced Congress to answer for their role, if any, in the January 6 riots on The Capitol. Is this a move towards Congress governing Social Media? And there's still China...can the Biden Administration get the Chinese government…
 
American hate against Asians is nothing new. In 1875, the Page Act became American law restricting Chinese women who were seen as unclean and engaging in prostitution. President Arthur signed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 excluding an entire nationality lasting until 1943; Legislatures in 43 states have proposed no less than 250 bills that woul…
 
While the pandemic and stimulus were front and center for Biden, the GOP focused on Dr.Seuss, Mr. Potato Head, and Pepe Le Pew. The right wing ecosystem that has elevated cartoon characters to the level of public discourse is all about putting cancel culture back in the minds of Donald Trump’s base; Meghan, Harry and Oprah - Buckingham Palace shoul…
 
Suckers (Proud Boys, Q Anon), seriously thought Trump would pardon them before he left office? Congressmen and senators who voted not to impeach Trump put their stamp of approval on the events of January 6th, 2021. I'm calling out the 7 Dems who voted AGAINST the $15/hr min wage. With a combined net worth of $43m, shame on you Joe Manchin (WV), Jon…
 
The minimum wage has been stuck at $7.25 an hour since 2009. The nationwide $15 dollar proposal is currently part of the $1.9 trillion dollar CoVid relief Bill but only as a staggered four-year roll out - can poor people afford to wait four years? Why was Katie Porter pushed out of the Financial Services Committee? And Texas - to secede or not to s…
 
Marjorie Taylor Greene admits that a Jewish banking family was not responsible for the wildfires in California by way of a space laser. Are Smartphones taking over your every move? What’s the difference between honest scepticism and disinformation when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines?Door Mark Riley
 
Grievance culture...its apex was that ugly storming of the Capitol. It’s not enough that 75 million people decided to vote for a con man. Their problems and grievances haven’t been heard. Trump himself was the paramount practitioner of grievance culture. Turning the page, there's the simmering animosity between the moderate and progressive wings of…
 
In the wake of the riot at the Capitol Building this past Wednesday, the denunciations of the violence by enablers of Donald Trump are hollow gestures offered by cowardly politicians. They lined up behind this grifter right up until they didn’t. The straight up liars like Kayleigh McEnany, and those who came before her ought to be called out. How m…
 
Ever the shyster…fanatical attention-grabber, Trump did a 180-degree flip and signed the Stimulus Bill just after his rounds of golf. His time in office is getting short and America is tired of his ”I won the election" mantra. It’s time for Democrats to exact retribution to the Trump enablers in their midst. They need to fear progressive Democrats …
 
NEW PODCAST EPISODE: (15 Min listen). The COVID vaccine is here, but how do we roll it out? Opinion around the globe varies but which nations have learned any lessons and how are they better prepared for the future of public health? Meanwhile, Trump closes out 2020 with more of his frantic antics, grifting under the guise of authoritarian populism,…
 
The recent election shows that nearly half of America buy into Trump’s delusions, bu It matters little to me if he’s scared of indictments, financial ruin, or both. He needs to go and figure out what to do with the rest of his life. The media, which has made a fortune out of covering him, won’t be doing stories on his every tweet four years from no…
 
Democrats...are you really up for what has to be done or are you just going to keep posting memes? Now is the time to stop mocking Donald Trump and start laying the groundwork to beat him in the election. Must effective policing mean brutal policing? Good cops are suffering, even dying but if police in their jurisdictions can't tell the difference …
 
24 hours after Joe Biden's nomination for running mate, the haters have come out in full force. Sexism, racism and Birther rights take the helm while impartial opinion is not even on the radar. Meanwhile, Kanye West teamed up with Jared Kushner to discuss book publishing and we're supposed to believe that? Why did the Trump campaign choose to bootl…
 
Shouldn't we be able to have police who both solve crime fast AND reject the notion of policing based on race? Why is it an either/or... and as per Dick Gregory, could we install retractable incentives for good/bad policing? Two conservative/populist leaders come down with the virus – is Trump next? Are you a Social Media sucker?…
 
In case after case, communities of color are told through the actions of the justice system that their concerns and yes, lives, don’t matter. There are 18,000 police agencies in the United States. What needs to change is the culture of policing, and that will take work, work after the cameras are turned off and the justifiable anger over George Flo…
 
A good leader leads by example; why should you wear mask if your leader refuses to wear one? Would FDR, Churchill or Mandela have stood for less than acceptable production of tests or ventilators? How is the social media rumor mill affecting our well being? Once again, fed by the leader who once said the virus was a plot hatched by the Democratic P…
 
It's down to Bernie or Biden, but which one will reach the required number of Delegates and who will they choose for running mate?

Bernie Sanders is building momentum among the Democratic candidates, but will Bloomberg topple his lead? Trump defies every possible code of morality yet finds only unconditional love from the '63m' base. Can he really walk on water to take four more years?Door Mark Riley
 
Why, why, why does Trump dominate the news? This week spans Iran and our dependency on oil; Fossil Fuels; double standards of Immigration; and the alleged rape of a newspaper columnist. Despite calling the Media traitors, seems they're the ones to profit from the constant news cycles churned by the 45th POTUS.…
 
Barbaric restrictions and an overturn of Roe V. Wade proposed in severals states. Over which rights of a man's body do women have a say? Trump's Immigration plan would have denied entry to his own family and that of Pence, Kushner, Miller and the Knavs; and how far is to far in the Jeremy Kyle-style talk shows?…

Critical analysis of The National Emergency by Donald Trump; Have Trump and McConnell cheapened the presidency of the United States?

Democrats, don't get too comfortable! The shutdown may be over but the President hates bad publicity -- especially when it reaches his base -- and Trump and McConnell are not honest negotiators. Could Republicans run someone up against Trump for 2020?Door Mark Riley
 
Things are getting deep with the shutdown, the Trump-Russia investigation, and The Wall. Americans are encouraged to believe only the media that reinforces their view of the world. It’s not new, but it ought to change. Modern [reality format] media is about attracting attention. There are good journalists around, but the important question for medi…
