Author Aaron Glantz (@Aaron_Glantz) joins us to discuss his new book, ‘Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream.’ The 2008 financial crisis saw countless Americans lose their homes while the banks that caused it suffered zero repercussions. Glantz outlines how crooks like Steve Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross caused the crash by preying upon the average American via poorly regulated financial products, and how the government then let them shift 100% of the blowback onto regular people. The alternate model set forth by FDR in which homes were saved. The story of Sandra Jolley, a consumer advocate who secured an $89 million whistleblower settlement on a reverse-mortgage foreclosure scheme by Mnuchin’s bank.

On the fun half: John from San Antonio discusses activating non-voters, Matt Lieberman’s GA Senate run. James O’Keefe leaks Amy Robach audio of ABC quashing Jeffrey Epstein investigation. Rally for Matt Bevin re-election in KY: Trump brags about Lou Dobbs calling him best president ever. Lou Dobbs calls Trump “president of ‘we.'” Ilhan Omar: “Here in Minnesota we don’t just welcome refugees, we send them to Congress.” Ilhan says she endorses Sanders and his vision to end Western imperialism. Do former Trump voters deserve forgiveness (and universal programs)? CNBC report: Is the US still a “safe” country for refugees to apply for asylum in Canada from? Fox News guest, dog handler, ends interview with PSA about Jeffrey Epstein.
