ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Air Date: 4/23/2019

Today we take a look at the current state of the Democratic Party in the wake of the 2018 elections that swept in a new class of Super-Progressives who are now locking horns with the more establishment and conservative leadership of the party as they all gear up for the 2020 primary and general elections.

SHOW NOTES

Ch. 1: The Six Groups of the Democratic Party with Leno Krauze and Perry Bacon Jr. - Trumpcast - Air Date 3-18-19

There are 6 main groups of Democrats, from the Super-Progressives to the Conservatives. The energy is in the progressives, so much so that an outsider like Bernie Sanders is mainstream.

Ch. 2: Beware The Narcissism of Small Differences - The David Pakman Show - Air Date 2-19-19

Small differences create conflict where there shouldn't be. We are satisfied by fueling ourselves with aggression. Warren or Bernie shouldn't be a dead end issue.

Ch. 3: Does Obama Speak for Progressives? with Paul Jay and Dr. Gerald Horne - The Real News - Air Date 4-9-19

The problem with Obama, his support of Biden, and his silence with progressives. You can't play ball with corporate democrats because they own the game.

Ch. 4: AOC vs. DCCC: It’s War. with Emma Vigeland - Rebel HQ - Air Date 4-9-19

AOC is a voice of the rebellious spirit we all have. The DCCC is blacklisting and boycotting challengers to their power.

Ch. 5: AOC on what we need in a 2020 presidential candidate - The Intercept - Air Date 1-29-19

New democratic leadership is needed. Policy and progressivism is pitted against identity. Time to lean into a broader progressive message.

Ch. 6: Support for Israel Divides Democrats, A Division Fomented by Republicans with Mairav Zonszein - The Real News - Air Date 2-10-19

The media claims if you support BDS you are an anti-semite. The Democrats aren't stopping that narrative.

Ch. 7: Swamp Monsters Attack Progressives with Cenk Uygur, Nomi Prins, and Ana Kasparian - The Young Turks - Air Date 3-28-19

The DCCC has taken a less democratic turn for the 2020 cycle and is stifling completion and blackballing consultants who would dare work against them.

Ch. 8: Establishment Dems Start War on Bernie - The David Pakman Show - Air Date 4-17-19

The 2016 establishment fought Bernie, and they continue today. Why do they want to stop him? His policies are popular and poll great.
