2583 - Donald Trump’s Chokehold on Republican Fealty & Chevron’s Criminal Conspiracy w/ Digby & Steven Donziger
Sam and Emma host Heather Parton, columnist at Salon.com and proprietor of “Digby’s Hullabaloo,” and talk with attorney Steven Donziger about the criminal conspiracy that Chevron has been enacting against him. Heather, Sam, and Emma delve deep into the chokehold Donald Trump has over Republican fealty, and what (and who) this might affect in the coming midterms. Then, Steven Donziger recounts the ongoing attempt to force him into jail as part of a greater conspiracy to continue imperialist exploitation of indigenous folks in Ecuador and elsewhere. Emma, Sam, and Steven explore how Chevron has been using a private prosecutorial regime and a network of corrupt judges to force criminal contempt and RICO charges on him, with the aim of undermining an Ecuadorian Supreme Court decision defending Indigenous people’s human rights.
And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma encourage ICE agents to resign in protest of Biden’s immigration policy, they explore Tucker Carlson’s manipulation of VAERS as part of the broader anti-vax disinformation campaign, and Charlie Kirk recoins tragedy of the commons. Next, Laura Ingraham and Dinesh D’Souza rage against BrainPOP, exploring how Moby the educational robot is undermining the American family unit, and the Utah GOP come together to express their dearest grievances - beyond Mitt Romney - from the cancellation of dixie to “taxed enough already!” Plus, your calls and IMs!
