December 18, 2020

Sam hosts Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon), host of the Benjamin Dixon show to discuss the biggest stories of the week including the pending coronavirus relief measures and how progressives can wield power in a Biden-led government.

On today’s show: Tucker Carlson muddies the waters on the vaccine and gives a pass to any skeptics out there.

Sam hosts Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon), host of the Benjamin Dixon show to discuss the biggest stories of the week including the pending coronavirus relief measures and how progressives can wield power in a Biden-led government. Big turnout in GA, the split within the GOP, and other factors that could help the Dems in the GA runoff elections. Where should the Dems go from here in Covid relief negotiations? Ben goes off on Jimmy Dore vs AOC.

Jimmy Dore says nobody on left supports AOC anymore, it only took him two weeks to do something he does not specify.

On the fun half: Sackler VP during opioid crisis says she can’t think of how Perdue Pharma could’ve done anything differently during opioid crisis. Katie Porter calls BS on Sackler Perdue Pharma bankruptcy settlement during House hearing. Ainsley Earhardt doesn’t understand why people leaving NY and CA for FL and TX don’t suddenly become Republicans. World-class charismatic leader Kelly Loeffler deflects when asked if she will recognize Biden as president-elect. Dave Rubin says he’s got nothing against trans people, it’s their agenda that’s so insidious. Plus, your calls and IMs.
