EGG BABIES? Why Don't We Want Peace? Sleeping in Parks? Karel Cast 24-23

2/21/2024
EGG BABIES? Why Don't We Want Peace? Sleeping in Parks? Karel Cast 24-23 In Alabama, frozen eggs at fertility clinics are now considered children. Theocracy now, democracy later? We are quickly moving and succumbing to Christian Sharia Law, and not many are fighting it. Why? No room at the inn? IF your city doesn't have enough beds for homeless, is it OK for them to pitch a tent in your park, on your street, on your sidewalk? The Supreme Court will soon answer. Can you support Israel and still be for a cease fire? Well, not if you're the USA it appears. We must be happy with 30k dead Palestinians. How can we just keep letting this happen?

'You're not safe': How middlemen are corrupting traditional Medicare

2/21/2024
This time on Code WACK! You've probably heard about the dangers of Medicare Advantage, but did you know that traditional Medicare is being privatized too? How is this corrupting our healthcare system even more and what does this mean for patients? To find out, we spoke to Dr. Ana Malinow, who spent three decades working as a pediatrician with immigrant, refugee and underserved children in Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania, and California before retiring as Clinical Professor of Pediatrics from the University of California San Francisco School of Medicine. She’s past president of Physicians for a National Health Program and is currently a lead organizer for National Single Payer and The Movement to End Privatization of Medicare. This is the first episode in a two-part series with Dr. Malinow.

Temu and Tariffs, Chinese Auto Industry, How to Make It in America, Biden's Industrial Policy

2/20/2024
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. The two discuss why Chinese-based e-commerce company Temu, who's spending billions on ads, and has already reshaped how many American shop, isn't paying the United States any tariffs. Here's a brief explanation from AAM's latest blog on the subject: "The “de minimis” exemption in U.S. trade law allows anything valued under $800 to enter the United States duty-free. It was originally intended for one-off type things, like making it easier for tourists traveling abroad to bring souvenirs back from vacations abroad. But Temu and fellow Chinese e-commerce brand SHEIN have exploited de minimis because they send their merchandise direct-to-consumer, avoiding tariffs because their stuff is so darn cheap (remember, Temu’s average transaction is $25!)." If you want to help protect American jobs, then please sign and share this petition telling your members of Congress to stop companies like SHEIN, Temu and Amazon from dodging U.S. trade enforcement, by visiting TinyURL.com/CloseLoophole. Scott and Leslie then chat about the grave danger being posed to the U.S. Auto industry from China, thanks to the communist nation's intentional industrial overcapacity. Next, Scott shares some moments from his great interview with Rachel M. Slace, Author of, "Making It in America." Finally, Leslie and Scott talk about a new study that "underscores how the embrace of a more muscular industrial policy under Democratic President Joe Biden could spread investments into regions left behind by decades of offshoring." For over 16 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.

NO PERFECT PRESIDENT; White Guilt over Slavery? Economy Must Be booming Karel Cast 24-22

NO PERFECT PRESIDENT; White Guilt over Slavery? Economy Must Be booming Karel Cast 24-22 NOTE: VIDEO IS CHOPPY AT PARTS DUE TO UNKNOWN FRAME RATE ERROR. It's President's Day and that has me thinking about Presidents. As we enter in to an election year we all want something that just isn't obtainable, a perfect President; one that checks all the boxes. But when in history have we ever gotten one those anyway? Which one? A person on Threads was angry that many White people do not feel guilty about slavery. I commented I am one of them; it ended in 1865, my ancestors were in Canada at that time and I would have fought very hard against it had I been alive, and never would have condoned it. So where is my guilt? In my skin color alone? Isn't that racists? Oh what a can of worms opened after that exchange. And the economy must be booming so it's time for #Trump and #maga to STFU. How do I know? Because this guys out selling $399 tennis shoes and people are buying them. They are sending him money. They contribute to his campaign, travel to his rallies. We must have lots of money of they can do this. Watch on YouTube and listen wherever you get your podcast.

A Turning Point - Outsmarted II

Code Wack - 'Nothing about us without us!' The trans community fights back

2/14/2024
Some states are making it easier for trans and non-binary individuals to get gender-affirming care but in other states, a record number of laws have been passed to outlaw – or limit – such care. What kind of toll does this take on people in the trans community, their doctors and their advocates? What policy solutions are needed to ensure that everyone, regardless of gender identity, has access to the medical care they need? To find out, we spoke to Ash Orr, a trans organizer from West Virginia and press relations manager for the National Center for Transgender Equality or NCTE. This is the second episode in a two-part series. Check out the Transcript and Show Notes for more!

They also discuss special prosecutor Robert Hur, a Trump holdover, who cleared President Biden of any wrongdoing with the handling of classified documents, but released a report that was critical of Biden's memory. On that same topic, Sarah and Brad explore what's going on with U.S. political media, why they're taking the bait in letting Trump's attacks set the narrative, and whether they've learned anything since Trump's first run in 2016. Sarah also explains why she's exceptionally disturbed by the media's obsession about President Biden’s age without the context that he is functioning well as a president. Then, CNN military analyst Col. Cedric Leighton (USAF Ret.) joins Brad to examine the world at war in Gaza and Ukraine. This includes a discussion about Trump's latest comments attacking NATO, and giving Putin a free pass. The website for PoliticusUSA is www.PoliticusUSA.com and their X handle is @PoliticusUSA.

SUPREME SCREW UP; Nice Old Man With Bad Memory; Dog Parents Parents? Karel Cast 24-18 The Supreme Court is going to forget to enforce the Constitution just because it doesn't want to get in to the Donald Trump debacle. They've let us down before, many times, and they are about to do it again. Is our Democracy really this unprotected because of these nine people? The short answer is, yes. Is Joe Biden just a nice old man with a bad memory? Well, he doesn't think so, but a special prosecutor does. Meanwhile Trump is just as old and forgetful, but is anyone challenging his competency ? Nope. Just a partisan hack special prosecutor who is NOT prosecuting. Lovely. Are pet parents parents or do they demean parents of human children when they say they are? I waddle in to the outrage in the Online Outrage of the week segments. Plus, why are some men saying online to stop enjoying themselves privately? And is it healthy?
