3/6 Neoliberals Come to the Table & Cutting Through the Ilhan Omar “Controversy”

March 6, 2019

On today’s show: DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen lies, claims people are not being deported without the chance to get their kids back. Rep. Clay Higgins compares immigration to D-Day invasion. Sam reads an email from a listener, goes in hard on claims that Ilhan Omar’s criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic. Steve Scalise says Omar should be removed from foreign affairs council. Clinton and Obama-era centrist Brad DeLong says it’s time to let the left wing of the party take the reins. A spirited discussion of neoliberalism.

On the fun half: Rand Paul says it’s against liberty to enforce mandatory vaccinations. Fox and Friends shows the hypocrisy of AOC taking a plane instead of Acela to see her constituents. Tucker Carlson and Melissa Francis say they’re the serfs and AOC is the ruling class. WAPO: “Howard Schultz hopes to benefit from Michael Bloomberg’s decision not to run for president.” Larry Summers dismisses MMT, says it’s dangerous to say that “the government can just print money.” Plus, your calls and IMs!
