Episode #120 of the Countdown podcast is up.
- (1:32) SPECIAL COMMENT: We must act now against The New McCarthyism, or lose the Republic. With Trump restored to Facebook, dispatching Coke Jr and recording a video sending KEVIN McCarthy instructions for this insidious “Weaponization Subcommittee”, the Democrats must literally counter-program. The Senate must crowd the Jim Jordan Star Chamber off the public stage by holding its own hearings (the suppression of the Mueller Report; the actions of just-arrested FBI agent and now Russian oligarch advisor Charles McGonigal in the infamous Comey Letter of October 2016; anything will do). Trump smells the opportunity to turn truth into falsehood, and falsehood into truth. We must stop him and The New McCarthyism — and damn fast.
Remember that story about George Santos raising $3000 for a veteran’s dog, and then skipping out on them? Well, there’s some good news for that story.
- (28:56) THINGS I PROMISED NOT TO TELL: With the Republicans now offering to place one of their presidential primary debates on CNN or MSNBC, time to recall the day they starkly told Tom Brokaw what HE had to do if they really expected John McCain to show up to the debate Brokaw would moderate in his swan song for NBC News: get me fired.
(I listened to the podcast with headphones for the first time, and that music really jumps out at you ...)
Well, that’s all the damage for now. Good morning, good afternoon, good night, and good luck.
