In this episode we talk about California Governor Jerry Brown standing up to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions on immigration, how socialism is completely different from communism and the USSR flag represents the latter not the former, and I'm terrified that Trump is the president setting up the talks with North Korea.
China's government is looking to make President Xi ruler for life, Florida takes some steps for stiffer gun laws, but also allowing some teachers to bring guns to school, Trump and Kim Jong Un to meet in May for talks, and more.
Our democracy needs saving. Russia, Egypt, and China just to name a few countries with fake elections. We need to make sure the US doesn't go that direction... ever. Republicans, along with some Democrats, are rolling back the bank regulations put in place after the financial crisis in 2008. What could go wrong? And, again, we need common sense gun laws and we need to support our children and students as they say never again and fight the NRA.
I've had enough. We need common sense gun laws NOW. Enough is Enough. Also with Russia's new threat of nuclear annihilation via cruise missile, the Pentagon is evaluating the US missile defense systems and the Supreme Court is hearing a First Amendment argument about political paraphernalia at polling places on election day.
There is no rest for any of us. Putin tells the Kremlin that Russia now has a ICBM that can evade anti-missile defenses, Mueller is looking into Trump's actions where he tried to get rid of Attorney General Jeff Sessions last July. And the Lt. Governor of Georgia is threatening Delta Airlines with taking away huge tax breaks if the airline cuts ties with the NRA. I told you the craziness keeps coming.
Our "brilliant" president said something stupid as hell the other day. The Vietnam-dodging Donald Trump said he would have charged unarmed into the Parkland Florida high school to take on the armed gunman.
Some big brands including YouTube, Amazon, FedEx, Bass Pro Shops and others are sticking by the NRA despite calls for them to drop the controversial gun organization in the wake of the Valentine's Day Mass Shooting in Parkland Florida. Also in the news, EPA head, Scott Pruit, says the Bible is guiding him to harvest our natural resources (*He's referring to Natural Gas and Coal).
