Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Angle of Repose Friday"

Fri, 12/19/2014 - 9:47am

It's "Angle of Repose Friday" on The After Show. You know, the angle in which a granular substance stays in place on a slope. Makes sense to us.

New York police are in hot water again as video surfaces of a twelve year old being beaten and arrested; a Journalist sues over his arrest at the Ferguson, Missouri protests; and the NYPD is cancelling most of its Open Bar holiday parties this year.

On The Last Half today, we are joined with Netroots Radio Government and World Affairs Bureau Chief, Will McLeod for the Friday News Dump and Recycling Center.

All that, plus the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

Player and other info below the Orange Flourish.



The After Show with Wink and Justice broadcasts 8am to 9am Pacific on Metaphor Mondays, Red Sky at Morning Tuesdays, Wednesday's Child is Full of Whoa! Wednesdays, Thank God It's Giovedì (that's what we call it) and Angle of Repose Fridays

Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Thank God It's Giovedì"

Thu, 12/18/2014 - 9:45am

If it's Thursday on The After Show with Wink & Justice; then Thank God It's Giovedì (that's what we call it)!

A Massachusetts pharmacy co-founder faces 25 murder counts in connection with a deadly meningitis outbreak; New York State’s First Deputy Comptroller finds potentially illegal activities at charter schools and gets ignored; and a California cop won’t be charged despite stashing seized cannabis at his home and lying about it.

On The Last Half, we visit with our Finance News and Monetary Policy "Burrow" Chief, Arliss Bunny, author of "The Smart Bunny's Guide to Debt, Deficit and Austerity."

All that, plus the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

Break Up the Big Banks and #OccupyCitibank

Wed, 12/17/2014 - 10:32am

[This is an announcement from some Occupy Wall Street folks in support of an action tomorrow, 12/18/14. I am one of the signatories.]

Occupy Wall Street is an idea whose time has come. And those of us inspired and awakened by this idea that our government should serve all of us, not only the 1%, have never stopped organizing to hold Wall Street accountable. Towards these ends, a group of us are now coming together to demand that Citibank be broken up.

Recently a number of groups have stepped up to call for an action on Thursday outside Citibank in New York City. This is in solidarity with Senator Elizabeth Warren's call last week to break up the biggest banks.

As activists and organizers who have helped shape and elevate the narrative around inequality and inform America about Wall Street rigging the system against the 99%, we know better than to hitch an entire movement to the coattails of one politician.

We also know that the mood in this country is on our side, and it's the right thing to do to push a main street agenda forward as creatively and as rapidly as possible.

The time to act is now.

For full details and to join our Occupy affinity group on Thursday, please RSVP here.

See you in the streets,

Kim Fraczek (People’s Puppets, Occupy the Pipeline)
Jackrabbit (Interoccupy)
Priscilla Grim (@OccupyWallStNYC)
Mark Provost (USUncut)
Charles Lenchner (Tech Ops, Occupy Network, Ready for Warren)
Stan Williams (Occupy Network)
Harry Waisbren (Occupy Network, Act.tv)
Winnie Wong (@OccupyWallStNYC)

Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Wednesday's Child is Full of Whoa!"

Wed, 12/17/2014 - 9:45am

It's "Wednesday's Child is Full of Whoa! Wednesdays" on The After Show. We were going to call it "Germanic Mercury" but you know what they say, if you have to explain a joke, yada yada ya.

Nutty right wing radicals plot a takeover of a rural Arizona county to test their nutty political theories; Reproductive rights groups sue Wisconsin for throwing pregnant women in jail; and a Scary, drug-resistant super-bacteria lurks in Rio's Olympic waters.

On The Last Half today, we revisit a recent conversation with Gaius Publius.

Netroots Radio Presents The After Show with Wink & Justice: "Red Sky at Morning Tuesdays"

Tue, 12/16/2014 - 9:45am

"Red Sky at Morning Tuesdays" on The After Show means only one thing, it's Tuesday. You've been warned.

The District of Columbia is set to hand over prison health care to a for profit company with a shady record; in keeping with the law to not hire any police with an IQ over 100, the Supreme Court ruled ignorance of the law IS an excuse; and a Koch-backed group compares the EPA with the CIA torture program.

On The Last Half today, we revisit our interview with Los Angeles Producer, Composer and Author, Jerry Danielsen.

It's "Metaphor Monday" on The After Show. This is the day when we call things what they are. No Similes allowed. Nope. Not today.

How the Bipartisan Millionaires Party took over the US Government

Sun, 12/14/2014 - 5:53pm

The Millionaires Party began to take large strides toward a hostile takeover of the US Government back in 1981. That's when Reagan got his so called "Economic Recovery Tax Act" passed on a vote of 238 to 195 in the House controlled by a Democratic majority  of 244 to 191, with the connivance of 137 House Democrats. In the Senate it passed on a vote of 89 to 11 in a Senate with a Republican majority of 53 to 46, with the connivance of 37 Senate Democrats.

The Millionaires Party's next big step toward remaking the US into an Plutocracy came in 2001. The Bush Tax Cuts passed the House on a vote of 240 to 154 in a House controlled by a Republican majority of 220 to 211, with the connivance of 27 House Democrats. The Bush Tax Cuts passed the tied Senate 58 to 33, with the connivance of 12 Senate Democrats.

Yesterday we saw the Millionaires Party cement its control of the US government with the passage of the CRomnibus budget bill. The CRomnibus budget bill passed the House 219 to 206 in a House with a Republican majority of 234 to 201, with the connivance of 37 House Democrats. Last night the CRomnibus budget bill passed the Senate 56 to 40 in a Senate with a Democratic majority of 53 to 45, with the connivance of 32 Senate Democrats, and President Obama.
