Stephen Green’s Lightning Round brings hot headlines to Bill Whittle and Scott Ott in a fast-paced week in review. As AOC gets solar plant workers fired, President Trump goes bigly after Black voters, and Democrats tear their party apart over billionaire Bloomberg trying to buy an election, while Elizabeth Warren attempts the same with other people’s money.
The New York Times polls battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida and finds President Donald Trump beating leading Democrats Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — despite Trump’s punishing disapproval rating, and other polls that show him trailing nationwide.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) make a video to push repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which bans use of federal tax money to pay for abortions.
An objective observer would think the Democrat presidential candidates are committing electoral suicide after their performances in recent debates. On guns, climate, immigration, health care and more, they’ve staked out extreme Progressive positions which will dog their eventual nominee in the general election contest. Will even one candidate get off the Left-wing crazy train before it goes completely off the rails?
Aleksandr Solzhentisyn, who saw the starvation and brutality of The Gulag Archipelago, said “prosperity breeds idiots.” That helps to explain the existence of AOC, Bernie Sanders and other so-called social-democrats and Progressives.
The Washington Post says Democrat presidential candidates have deep policy divisions, but do policies even matter in a battle with incumbent Republican President Donald Trump, the post-policy president?
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, understands democracy better than Republicans do because she wants to abolish the electoral college and choose the president by national popular vote, according to Jamelle Bouie in The New York Times.
In Stephen Green’s latest episode of Right Angle Lightning Round, he ambushes Scott Ott and Bill Whittle with some of the weirder stories of the week, including…
— A high-speed crack up underground.
— How Trump chased New Yorkers to Miami.
— What a GOP group should have done after referring to Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘jihad squad’.
— Corey Booker’s raging hormones drive him to do this to President Trump.
— And the word you should avoid when recruiting new socialists.
After the failure of the “basket of deplorables” candidate, Hillary Clinton, the new field of Democrat presidential candidates and their fellow travelers have decided to double down on insulting the American public whose votes they crave.
President Trump told U.S. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib — known collectively as ‘The Squad’ — to go back where they originally came from and to fix the broken, corrupt governments in those places before they try to fix America. What did he mean by this, and why does he continue to go after a handful of rookie lawmakers as part of his effort to get re-elected? Bill Whittle explains.
For all their talk of tolerance and equality, racism rips the Democrats apart in their first presidential debate. Kamala Harris forces herself into the top tier when she takes a shot at Barack Obama’s vice president, Joe Biden. Can Biden survive this battle for the soul of the Democratic party? Is Harris the perfect presidential nominee because she’s willing to do anything to win?
In the wake of the first round of Democratic presidential primary debates, Americans are left with the impression that climate change and Mitch McConnell are the two greatest, imminent threats to the country, and to life on Earth. But even if Mitch McConnell personally causes climate change, can Democrats win the White House?
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams Amazon, suggesting billionaire CEO Jeff Bezos pays workers “starvation wages”, and should offer more benefits and pay more taxes. Surprisingly, the major Democrat donor’s company punches back.
Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) propose a 15% cap on credit card and consumer loan interest rates — an attack on what they call loan sharks in 3-piece suits. Will this resonate with the American voter who’s deep in high-interest debt? Is this the way to make democratic-socialism palatable?
Results from last year’s electoral field-test in Pennsylvania suggest that when Republicans brand Democrats as ‘Socialist’ they FAIL. So, why does the GOP continue this strategy for the 2020 presidential race? Do people even fear socialism?
