The What Would Bernie Sanders Do Podcast is back! Why? Well, even when broadcast media thinks they are "fact-checking" or dispelling the lies about immigration coming from the Trump administration, the lies are still repeated far more than the truth. The lack of accurate and persistent pushback from the talking heads on CNN, MSNBC and NPR led Dr K to revive the podcast. If THEY are going to let Republicans and conservatives continue their fearmongering unabated, WE aren't! To counter the five biggest immigration lies, we offer facts you can use when confronted with conservative excuses for our punitive and superfluous immigration policy. As Democratic Socialist Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez emerges victorious over establishment Democrat Joseph Crowley in New York's 14th Congressional District, her statement on the virtues of Democratic Socialism resonates with constituents of all colors and religions. What it reveals is that the current conflict in our country is not left versus right or Republican versus Democrat, but humanity versus inhumanity. A new wave of legislators will restore our society's grip on reality by doing what's right for the people, not a blue wave that'll do what's right for the donors. The wisest judges in the land no longer make decisions based on precedent but on this president. The John Roberts majority proves in two of the Supreme Court's latest decisions that the law of the land is deceiving women and showing clear prejudice against Muslims based upon the premise of "national security." We debunk the court's argument and expose the Supreme Court’s majority for what it is--a branch of Fox News and thus the White House. Are you a humane individual? You might think so, but play along with our new game show "How's Your Humanity?" and see if you're as compassionate as you think! And we suggest groups you can contact to help immigrants fight back. so stay involved, protest, march, spread reality on social media and support humane candidates on the local level, and you will forever FEEL THE BERN!!
