The end of Roe has us chopping wood and carrying water, probably for the rest of our lives but we're committed to that. J6 is a surprise bombshell on several levels, and we vote in the Illinois Democratic Primary.

Republicans are hella mad at the J6 Hearings making them look like chumps. Election workers are heroes. SCOTUS is already stacked by dark money, we need to UNstack the courts.

The Hearings! Barry Loudermilk takes future insurrectionists on a tour of the Capitol. Mike Pence is not a hero. Blue Gal has some not-fashion opinions about Liz Cheney's clothes. Driftglass wonders about Never-Trumpers' ability to "reach" Trump voters. Pro Publica article mentioned in the show here. (TW We talk about gun suic**de and other troubli…
 
Driftglass came across a podcast we did this week in 2014, and derives some historical lessons from same. We discuss a Senator who behaves like a Congressman (in a good way) and Republican primaries are LIT to infinity, still! Plus a report on youngest child's high school graduation and what it says about education. More at http://proleftpod.com Ep…
 
We discuss the Durham fiasco, a Republican governor (not Death Santis), and why America's most prominent privileged White, gay, Catholic, Tory, Conservative, Libertarian phrenologist is whining about "trans athletes." Also, mass shootings are already political as they rely on Republican "guns and moar gunz" policies to exist. More at http://proleft…
 
The tragedy in Uvalde, Texas was the result of Republican political priorities and policies. That's what makes it political. That it was not shocking (not anymore) is what led to public rage rather than mere sadness.

A long one this week as there was very much media fail. And we were almost done with recording when we went off on a tangent about what is REALLY unfair about the student loan situation.

DG and BG rail against those arguing that the Democratic Party should move to "the center." What center!? And also against disinterested Americans when reproductive rights AND democracy itself are under serious threat. It's time to ENLIST! More at http://ProLeftPod.com!

The passing of the great Eric Boehlert reminds us that there’s no institutional support for liberal truth. Single shingle truth-tellers asking for subscription five-dollar bills is the liberal business model, while Peter Thiel and Rebekah Mercer spend millions on Right-Wing Structure. That said, Fox viewers paid to watch CNN **and take notes** chan…
 
In true blog fashion, Driftglass says he doesn't want to talk Oscars so we talk Oscars (for a couple minutes) then move on to CBS, Mulvaney, Don't Say Gay, and Madison Cawthorn.

How do we get to the point where Bill Barr says with a straight face that Trump is utterly unqualified to be president, but that he would never vote for a Democrat? And where does that leave the Democratic Party's need to compromise with wackjob Republicans? (We think you know the answer to THAT one.) More at http://ProLeftPod.com! Support the show…
 
The great Republican software reset has begun, as Tucker Carlson claims he never supported Russia, and White-Wing Evangelicals set their brains to "Pelosi 9/11 Socialism" instead of "Trump 1/6 Big Lie." And Biden's State of the Union was great overall, yet contained a Sista Soulja moment we wish he had avoided. More at http://ProLeftPod.com! Suppor…
 
Republicans can't help but politicize a Russian invasion of one of our allies. Trump won't shut up, but can't fix anything in less than his "two weeks" lie. The backfire for Putin and an even worse one for Fox. And we're giving up despair and cynicism (especially as it denotes intelligence) for Lent. And thank God or the Flying Spaghetti Monster or…

We're snowed in, and expect many of you are too! Driftglass spends his time observing "shelter culture" in the media and Bluegal talks about Win Red's recent loss in court and Facebook's loss in the eyeballs market. Also the real crimes of Jeff Zucker aren't about affairs in the office, but obscenities on the air like Corey Lewandowski. More at htt…
 
Joe Biden's "hot mic" not-an-accident moment was not for Peter Doocy, it was for Biden's base. A new SCOTUS justice freaks out the right even before they know who SHE will be. Sarah Palin tests positive and dines out anyway, and no, M&M shoes do not distract us from the criminal investigations Republican fraudsters, especially their favorite presid…
 
People in the media insisting Biden move to the center - wherever that is, punch a hippie or do a "Sista Soldja" moment - are just in the habit of hating plain ordinary progressive Democrats. We think their advice is wrong. [NOTE: F-words are used in this show.] More at http://ProLeftPod.com! Support the show (https://www.paypal.me/proleftpodcast) …
 
Merrick Garland arrested 11 Oath Keepers and charged them with sedition. Blue Gal has some simple (and possible) math for the midterms, and Driftglass pushes back on Republican pundits who have opinions on what Democrats "must" do. Really.
