Another weekend in America.  Carnage in Buffalo, Milwaukee, Southern California, Chicago, Houston.  In Buffalo, the 18-year-old shooter is directly tied to the great replacement theory that is actively promoted almost daily by Tucker Carlson and much of the neo-Fascist right in this country, which includes Republican elected officials at every level of government, and tolerated by the rest of the right.  And Democrats seem to be br...

Robert Reich says that we're already in the second American Civil War.  This one isn't being fought on battlefields, but perhaps blue states and red states need to live like a couple in an  estranged marriage.  Is it time to co-exist and not have a "one size fits all" approach in this country?  We discuss this, and a host of other items in the news along with contributions from George Carlin and our Hillbilly Libera...

Lest you think that we're kidding, the ink on the leaked draft opinion by the Supreme Court is still wet, and Republicans in office and running for office have taken to the airwaves over the past weekend to see who can be more extreme in the "pro-life Derby".  The Mississippi Governor defends the law there that prohibits pregnancies that result from incest and won't rule out a ban on contraception next.  Tennessee S...

So the Supreme Court has fired a cannon shot across the bow of the nation with it's plans to do away with Roe v. Wade this Summer.  Red states are already lining up to outlaw legal abortions with the promise in some of arrest and prosecution of doctors and even women who would get the procedure.  But have they also lit the fuse for the Democrats to motivate their voters to do what they did in the 2018 midterms and again in 2020...

The New York Times has done an exhaustive deep dive into Tucker Carlson and has further exposed the gaslighting, racism and manipulation techniques that he engages in nightly.  Hear Carlson - in his own words - work to tear the country apart by convincing his audience that they are the true victims and that "they" are coming to get "you".

As the Elon Musk acquisition of Twitter continues to reverberate through the world, we turn to our Hillbilly Liberal to share his thoughts on the subject.  One has to wonder why Musk might insert himself into such a potentially controversial place, when clearly, he doesn't really need to.  We ponder the question: "Is Musk simply bored?"  Also, Congressional candidate in Oklahoma and current GOP state Chairman John Benne...

It is no longer debatable.  The GOP is the party of stupid.  Not only is being stupid not a disqualifier for Republicans, but it is worn as a badge of honor by their leaders, who know that there is literally nothing that they can do, no lie too brazen, no claim too unbelievable to insult their followers.  What do the Democrats need to do in order to communicate more effectively just how dangerous the GOP is to our country at this c...

Elon Musk is attempting a hostile takeover of Twitter in order to protect "free speech", when in reality, he wants to remove any limitations on the platform spreading lies and misinformation.  The idiocy of Republican elected officials knows no bounds.  Now, an elected Republican in Tennessee uses none other than Hitler as a role model for homeless people to pull themselves up by their boot straps and become productive citi...

The news continues to come at us fast and furious.  We discuss the big changes at MSNBC in prime time, and how Tucker Carlson didn't miss the opportunity to toss a bone to his best fans after the subway shooting in NYC.  Also, Florida just asked Texas to hold its beer on the question of "which state will be the most draconian on abortion?"  Don't worry rapists and fans of incest...Florida has you covered.  And Georg...

We hear the term "Strawman" a lot, and perhaps finally have come up with the best definition of how this concept is being played out every day in front of us.  Also, some alarming polling numbers indicating that a third of our population favors an Authoritarian Democracy rather than the Liberal Democracy that we have so far enjoyed.  We discuss.  Also, we uncover perhaps the most glaring example of Christian hypocrisy disgu...

Turns out that psychopath Marjorie Taylor Greene, Aka: QAnon Queen, is doing just a bit of projecting when she claims that Democrats are the party of pedophiles and sexual deviants. She apparently forgot that the internet knows all.  Oklahoma has returned to the "good old days" on abortion, while Tennessee tries to find a way around gay marriage, while all but endorsing pedophilia.  Our Hillbilly Liberal Trae Crowder, himse...

A majority of Republicans think Joe Biden stole the election.  (When you think about it, they're giving a guy who they call "senile", "incompetent" "out of his league", etc. a whole lot of credit for being better than they are.)  41 million Americans believe in QAnon.  22% of the country believes that Sandy Hook was either definitely or possibly faked.  Has America as we know it run its course?

Also, we d...

With all of the issues facing the world being addressed pretty well by President Biden currently, and an economy that continues to steam ahead, conservatives have found their issue: transgendered athletes!  We discuss.  Also, Bill Maher builds another strawman.  This time, he tackles the up side of toxic masculinity.  And are billionaires finally going to be paying a fair share in taxes?

Elected Republicans are generally assholes. This isn't a controversial statement.  But rarely do we have such a constant stream of examples happening over a single weekend. Between Trump again offering praise to dictators, dim bulb Marjorie Taylor Greene's homophobia, Mo Brooks trying to reinvent himself, Indiana Senator Mike Braun wanting to take us back to the pre-Civil War era, and the wife of a Supreme Court Justice bei...

The GOP Senators on the Judiciary Committee who actually think that they have a path to the White House...and Lindsey Graham...made complete and total fools of themselves in their questioning of Ketanji Brown Jackson. If there ever needed to be more evidence of the racist vein running through the party, then look no further. We discuss. Our Hillbilly Liberal has some choice thoughts on this as well.

Also, our latest thoughts on the ...

The former California Governor and world-wide celebrity has appealed via social media to the Russian people and Russian military in a direct message that is trending heavily in Russia.  What is the definition of a war crime exactly?  And signs that the 1/6 Committee is getting close, and that surprises await.

Republican elected officials who are on the record as ignoring and downplaying the Russian interference in our 2016 elections, and subsequently ignoring the extortion of Zalensky and Ukraine by Trump are now offering standing ovations and pressure to go beyond the support already being offered.  This puts them squarely in the mainstream of world opinion.  However, it also is at odds with their right-wing media and its audience.  In...

Fox News and Stephen Miller get caught manipulating the sound from the press conference that VP Kamala Harris and Romanian President Klaus Iohannis conducted over the weekend.  And the moron Miller got the name and country of the European ally wrong, while completely misstating what Harris said in response to a series of questions from the press.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson quite simply is an agent of Russia and Putin at this point...

The self-described "really, really rich" guy wants people to send him $5 - $2000 dollars to help him build a new plane.  But don't tell anyone about it, because even the fake news media doesn't know about it. And if you click and donate, then you'll get an exclusive peek at the plane.  Yes, he really does think his supporters are that stupid.  Meanwhile, the guy who Trump calls a "genius", continues his ...

Barr, Graham and Bolton are doing their best impressions of a contortionist in trying to have it all ways.  Barr wants to sell a book and convince us that he wasn't the enemy of the rule of law that we know him to be.  Graham has located his balls and is having a flashback to the days when he was a pilot fish for John McCain.  Bolton, too late, is telling right wing media (the only ones who'll talk to him apparently) that T...

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
