Episode 119: #BorderlineInsane #NotinOurName #LittleDemocracy #Special Guest: Monique Worrell
1:20:14JBLC analyzes the situation at the U.S. border with a look at both the MAGA response, which took the form of a failed convoy of true believers heading down to the border to stop the migrant invasion, only to learn that the trip was part of a con artist grifting operation; to Republicans in Congress sabotaging their own border bill to make Joe Biden look bad, and keep the border in a crisis to help Donald Trump get elected.Cathy and Troy unload on Israel and Gaza with cathartic rage at the fact that U.S. is fighting in the middle east...AGAIN; discuss the tragic Biden legacy as a supporter of genocide, but swallow the hard pill than Biden is the better option for the Palestinians when faced with the prospect of a Trump presidency...and Bibi Netanyahu knows it too; and speculate on the future of a Palestinian state, and the role of the U.S in the world in the face of increased skepticism and global dismissal of U.S legitimacy as a defender of democracy. And we speak with special guest Monique Worrell, a Florida prosecutor suspended by Ron DeSantis over her investigation into racist corruption at a local police agency. DeSantis used Worrell during his Presidential campaign as an example of how he was cleaning house of "Soros-funded woke prosecutors." But now DeSantis has been embarrassed out of any possibility of reaching the Presidency, Worrell is running for re-election in a jurisdiction where she won 67% of the vote the last time...and she's seeking justice against DeSantis.All for less than the price of a cup of coffee...See the full interview with Monique Worrell by becoming a paid subscriber on our Patreon page at:www.patreon.com/justbuylesscoffeeAnd get involved and support Monique's run for State Attorney and defense of democracy in Florida here:https://www.moniqueforstateattorney.com/
