Recorded June 30, 2016. Message to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party--stop inviting Dr K to see Hamilton with Hillary!

Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren put on their "Blue Women Group" show in Ohio, a shameless display proving that distraction, cheerleading and fear mongering are what nails down the planks in the Democratic Party Platform this election cycle.

So what ARE they proposing for the Democratic party platform? While the media portrays "victories" for progressives and Bernie Sanders, many of these are merely lip service -- we give the details. When it comes to climate change, health care, free trade, a $15 minimum wage and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Clinton's surrogates throw a bone here and there but effectively shut down any potential for real change. The establishment wants the votes of progressives, and like their nominee they will, as Barack Obama said put it in 2008, "say anything but change nothing".

But we will continue to push for change, even if it looks like that push could mean trouble in Philly City! (And that musical theater reference means trouble for Dr K!)
