Michael Brooks, beloved Leftist Youtuber and Podcaster, dead at 37
Like many of you I am stunned by the sudden loss of one of our brightest stars, Micheal Brooks died yesterday at the age of 37. An incredible man who lived an incredible life, this episode is a tribute to him. I play 4 clips and discuss them in between tears and try to pay homage to the man that inspired me to start this podcast. I along with Left Twitter mourn his passing and feel his loss. RIP Michael Brooks, I love you and will try to emulate the empathy and compassion you showed others so readily.

Tales of corruption, corruption, and yet more corruption!
We go through a whole host of articles covering the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world, how they're benefiting from this pandemic, and a brief story about my own frustrations with being a cog in someone else's wealth making. We talk about Joe Kennedy vs. Ed Markey and why Ted is basically just a family name concealing a Pete Buttigieg agenda. and ICE is even more of a disgusting fascist institution than you may have believed! Lot of bad news folks, but I promise it's all worth listening to.

What went wrong with Not Me Us?
I go into my experience as a Bernie volunteer and why I'm conflicted over who to vote for in November. From my point of view Bernie put us all in a situation where no choice is a good or even remotely adequate choice. Thank you all for your patience I've been in a bit of a mood since this crisis started but I'm glad to be recording again!

Joe Biden is a monster! COVID-19 is an indictment of capitalism failures!
We discuss Katie Halpers recent interview with Alexandra Tara Reade, I express my internal conflict over what to do should Biden ultimately face Trump. The world has never needed Bernie Sanders more than right now, but the powerful in the country seem determined to stop him at all costs. All the while COVID-19 has many of us trapped at home and makes the argument for why we need a socialist form of government to combat global crises. I cover an article which I link to here

Pep talk time. The good, the bad, and the necessary for #NotMeUS to win.
We talk about what we need to see out of Bernie going forward and I discuss why I think it is foolish to abandon the democratic party even after their unspoken war on us and our ideals. Changing the world takes time folks but it is always worth it, never stop fighting.

SUPER TUESDAY! A reminder of why politics is pain.
We talk about the tight race between Sanders and Biden, why this needs to be a moment of clarity for the movement and our time to focus everything we've got on getting Bernie Sanders to the White House. No one ever said this would be easy but if we take aim at Biden, and start challenging Elizabeth Warren we can drive a wedge into the party and win. #NotMeUs

Bernie already released his medical records you hacks!
In a desperate fit of rage the billionaire class is trying everything they can to stop Bernie's surging popularity, including lying about his medical records not be released when of course they were back in December. This comes on the heels of a full week of Bernie Bro bashing, and seems to indicate some concern from the ruling class on Bernie's ever increasing poll numbers, but hey don't take my word for it we've got several billionaires who will tell you themselves exactly what they think of Bernie Sanders. Apologies for the episode being a day late I had some Bernie training stuff last night for door to door canvassing.

We cover a brief breakdown of the Iowa Caucus strange coincidences timeline, review the numbers coming out of New Hampshire, mention Andrew Yang dropped out (fail to mention Michael Bennet dropped out because who cares) and cover several recent media clips which showcase just how bad our corporate news has become in recent days. #FireChuckTodd should not be just a trending on Twitter it should have already happened.

IOWA CAUCUS CATASTROPHE! #MayoPete is now #MayorCheat
We go over all news currently available around the Iowa Caucus results, the company Shadow that made the App used for counting votes, and its gross conflict of interests with the Pete Buttigieg campaign.

Bernie's gonna Win, and Capital wants to Run Away!
We talk about the recent news with Bernie surging in all the major battleground earlier voting states, and how it has triggered a slew of toxic takes from the major establishment news mouthpieces, inspiring a new segment i'll be calling Toxic Takes. I suspect in the coming days more will be added. We also cover why it isn't very realistic that this supposed capital flight or capital strike reaction to a Bernie election could actually happen, and if it did it would be the doom of the wealthy not us.

Pete’s Butigieg is SO COOL AND NOT AT ALL A NEOLIBERAL CORPORATE DRONE. *Sarcasm detected*

Repeal the Second Amendment, it's Killing Us
As the episode title suggests I believe it is time to Repeal the second Amendment. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." This law is killing us, we have many freedoms in this country, but not the freedom to go to the store or a concert or a mall without threat of a White Nationalist Domestic terror attack. Remove the law that gives cover to murderers to be.
