MEDIA Destroying Biden; Woman Drowns Unnoticed Karel Cast 24-84

7/19/2024
MEDIA Destroying Biden; Woman Drowns Unnoticed Karel Cast 24-84 Why has the media decided it's time for Biden to go. There is NO public outcry. The politicians are being spurred on by the media, not the people. In fact, most people I know want Biden to stay. So, is the fix in? Has Trump already gotten to these people? And what a sh*tshow the convention was, and why didn't the media cover the dangers, the lies, the fascism and cultism going on? In Las Vegas, in February, a 58 year old woman died at LVAC, Las Vegas Athletic Club. Why did no one stop to help her? The video will shock and disgust you. Plus Adele is taking a break; Trixie Mattel is taking a break. What's with all these breaks? And Elon leaves CA because he's a transphobe. Good.

A Turning Point - Project 2025

7/17/2024
A day after a 20 year old registered Republican tried unsuccessfully to assassinate Donald Trump, I'm sending this recording about 2025—my newspaper column from last week. Because the leader of P25 calls for violence if “the left” doesn’t allow his minority to sell democracy down the river. I’ll get to the shooting that left one dead, two critically injured, and one very lucky ex-president who has repeatedly called for violence, relatively unscathed. I’m starting here with Project 2025 because it is a logical precursor to the political violence most now—belatedly—decry. As always, I link to the things I quote in my blog: jonbsinton.substack.com.

Why Enforcement of the 'Made in USA' Label is SO Important; Biden Awards Grants for EV Manufacturing

7/17/2024
Leslie is joined by Scott Paul, President of the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM), a partnership established by some of America’s leading manufacturers and the United Steelworkers union. Here are the topics that they discuss: 1. Polling shows that American shoppers prize the "Made in USA" label and are willing to pay more for it—something that ​counterfeiters are all too happy to capitalize. So how can the Federal Trade Commission protect the integrity of "Made in USA"? AAM is out with a new explainer video that is shared with the audience. ***Call your Representatives today in support of the COOL Online Act at 202-224-3121. Use AAM's 'Made in America' online directory at AmericanManufacturing.org/made-in-america*** 2. The U.S. is "frighteningly behind China" in global shipping, AAM President testified before the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party at the end of June. How can the U.S. correct course? 3. The Biden administration announced the investment of $1.7 billion dollars in grants for auto plant retooling projects across eight states as it works to transition the U.S. auto industry to electric vehicle technology. 4. U.S. brands like McDonald's, Apple, Starbucks, and Nike flocked to China to gain access to the world's second-largest consumer market, but Chinese companies are studying the West's formulas for success and pushing the competition out. Is the Chinese market fool's gold? For over 17 years, Scott Paul and AAM have worked to make American manufacturing a top-of-mind issue for voters and our national leaders through effective advocacy, innovative research, and a savvy public relations strategy. Their website is www.AmericanManufacturing.org and their handle on X is @KeepItMadeInUSA. Scott's handle is @ScottPaulAAM.

Are You OK? Plus Media Companies Make Bias Clear and TV That Made You Cry Karel Cast 24-80

7/10/2024
Are You OK? Plus Media Companies Make Bias Clear and TV That Made You Cry Karel Cast 24-80 NBC, CBS, ABC, they are all making their bias clear as they continually run stories about Biden’s age, splits in the party and more. They are not doing this about Trump, who is equally as old, and is a fascist to boot. So it has become clear that the corporate media in the USA is on the side of MAGA and Trump. Why? Well, it’s always the same reason, money. They are selling us out, and our country for clicks, views and ratings. And it could cost us the country. Are you ok? There’s so much going on in the world and in your world. And yet, no one’s really asking are we OK? Because I’m not. I’m not OK. There’s just too many horrible things at once. So what are you doing to be OK? And will you be better after the election? The Closer on Peacock, season 5, Episode 3, has just gutted me. Brenda Leigh loses her cat to kidney failure, and in real life, the real life cat actually died right after filming. The episode just made me sob big ugly tears. What TV show has done that to you?

A Turning Point-The Debate

7/8/2024
It is with a heavy heart that I present this week’s commentary. I’m sick about it. I truly think Joe Biden has been the most legislatively consequentially president since LBJ, but watching the disastrous debate forced me to conclude that he must step aside. That’s how important it is to defeat Donald Trump once and for all. I hope you’ll listen to this brief analysis.

BIDEN COMPETANCY TEST? 117 In Las Vegas? 35% Interest Macys? Karel Cast 24-78 Biden is doing an interview with ABC George Stephanaupolis...and it's really more of a competency test...but what are people expecting? And now that the bar is so high for him, can he live up to expectations or have people decided to just cancel him and move on? The 4th of July happened for the 248th time as a nation and I don't know about you but I didn't feel much like celebrating. Also, where are all these broke people getting the $ for fireworks$ ? Sunday it's going to be 117 in Las Vegas as a heat wave hits the Pacific Southwest. What is one to do? Not much. Macy's sent a notice to all card holders: We are going up to 34.9% interest on the card. Is this even legal? And if the answer is yes, then why, why is that legal?

Code Wack - The ‘silent, slow apocalypse’ of corporate health insurance

What is the true cost of the American health insurance system? What toll is it taking on both patients and providers? And what do we need instead? To find out, we recently interviewed Dr. Linda Peeno, a physician, ethicist and health insurance industry whistleblower who testified before Congress and who has spent nearly four decades working to protect patients from harm and death by corporate healthcare systems.

DEMOCRATS Are They Too Weak To Fight? Karel Cast 24-77

7/3/2024
DEMOCRATS Are They Too Weak To Fight? Karel Cast 24-77 Biden now has immunity for his actions in office, official actions. Defending the Constitution is an official action. He says Trump, MAGA and the Supreme Court are threats to the Constitution. So why isn't ever MAGA legislator, Justice and Trump in Gitmo? Why doesn't he use his position as commander in chief to tell the National Guard, DOJ, someone to arrest these people for their crimes against the USA? Why do Democrats REFUSE to fight for our country like Republicans fight to destroy it? Is it all just talk and campaigning? The USA is lost. If something is not done within four months, we are done as a Democratic Republic. And no one, including high ranking Democrats, seem to want to play anything but the victim.

A Turning Point - ImmiGRIT

7/2/2024
We’re stymied by politics on so many topics, but immigration seems to be the big hot button at the moment. In today’s commentary we take the conversation in a different direction, and talk about immigration from the perspective of leadership. We look at two women, one from the U.S., and one from Nigeria, as we contemplate the generally glossed-over value of immigrants as political and business leaders. I hope you’ll listen.

Code Wack - The deadly calculation of our for-profit healthcare system
