Comic Judy Gold Pokes Trump 

Also Henriette Mantel who, besides playing Alice on The Brady Bunch movies, is an accomplished author, comedy writer, and activist.

Then we are joined by Investigative Journalist Robin Urevich who reveals that Trump’s pick for Secretary of Labor Andrew Puzder is no friend to the worker. Robin’s work is a joint effort of Newsweek and Capital and Main. Her article uncovers an alarming number of reports of federal racial discrimination and sexual harassment claims filed against Puzder’s fast food company CKE and its franchisees, which, she writes, “read like stories from the 1940s or ’50s, before civil rights laws were ever enacted.”

David then simplifies the news coming out of Washington by urging listeners to visit www.5Calls.org. Calling is the most effective way to influence your representative. 5 Calls gives you contacts and scripts so calling is quick and easy. 5 Calls uses your location to give you your local representatives so your calls are more impactful.

Occupy Inauguration


Howie Klein organized today’s congressional boycott of Donald Trump’s inauguration. He is founder and treasurer of Blue America Pac which raises millions for progressive candidates. He also writes the Down With Tyranny! blog.

On Inauguration Day we focus on eliminating the noise and keying in on who stands to benefit the most from Donald Trump’s rise to power. We remind listeners that as an agent of chaos, Trump will distract us while our treasury is looted and our planet is poisoned by incompetent errand boys working for the richest one percent.

Trump’s cabinet is a murderer’s row of murderers. On today’s show Howie and David name names and tell you who to keep a watchful eye on.

They remind us how to apply the brakes during what can only be described as a slow motion car crash. Howie and David get specific, and remind us what all Americans can do to take back control of our national destiny.
