4/4 Derek Davison: Trump’s War on Civilians & Corey Pein: Silicon Valley’s Dark Enlightenment

April 4, 2017

Bill O’Reilly accuser on Bill’s unwelcomely vigorous dating tactics.

Derek Davison (@dwdavison9318): How Trump is different regarding civilian casualties in conflict areas. The nonsensical love affair of the Trump-supporting ‘anti-war’ crowd. The wishful thinking of Trumpist foreign policy with respect to Moscow and Tehran. More from Derek at Attwiw.com

Cory Pein (@coreypein): Silicon Valley’s dangerous myths and how they synergize with the current political regime. The Dark Enlightenment as the tech manifestation of Red Pill philosophy. Bannon as a prime example. Peter Thiel and Milton Friedman’s grandkid as fans of a blog by ‘Mencius Moldbug’ that argued for monarchy and that black people were better off under segregation.

On the fun half – Bernie sits down with Jane Mayer to talk campaign finance and tells Boston Dems that the democratic party lost more than Trump one, Trump wants Kushner to run the government, Chelsea Clinton doesn’t think she’s the best person to run for office in 2020, an Australian senator still thinks gay people can change who they are attracted to, and your calls and IMs.
