Sam and Emma are back from their Memorial Day break to discuss the top stories kicking off this week, from the anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre to the Texas Democrats' exit, and what we hope Democrats have learned from the failures of the January 6th commission. They begin by exploring the rising tensions, bolstered by the KKK and SCOTUS decisions, that led up to the 1921 Tulsa Massacre on Black Wall Street, then they look into the culmination of Republicans' decades-long crusade against the vote – from the staunch refusal to support an investigation into the January 6th coup attempt to the current wave of voting-restriction bills. Sam and Emma discuss the Texas Democrats' decision to walk out of the House, sacrificing the discussion of their initiatives for the sake of the enfranchisement of their constituents, how it can be a lesson for national Democrats who actually have a majority, and why taking on the unconstitutional nature of the filibuster must be the next step in the Senate. The duo rounds out the first half with a discussion of the leaked Biden memo on unilateral immigration reform.
And in the Fun Half: Nomiki Konst joins as the crew looks into the reemergence of the NY Health Act's Single-Payer system, first introduced in 1992, how a weakened Cuomo in an election year provides the perfect storm for NY to forge a path for a progressive agenda, and Nomiki explores multiple layers of the Dianne Morales clusterf*ck in the lead up to the NYC Mayoral primary. Next, they respond to the H3 Podcast's call for a Seder-Crowder debate, hopefully without Stephen's parental supervision this time, and delve a little deeper into the "discourse" that occurred at the Patriot Roundup "Coup"-Anon Conference. Emma emphasizes the importance of recognizing the commonality of Lab Leaks worldwide in a responsible discussion of the emerging possibility of the Wuhan Lab Leak, plus your IMs!
