Principles and Policies Podcast For Saturday 9/22/2018- Clarence Thomas Redux; The Attempt To Torpedo Brett Kavanaugh

Principles and Policies Podcast For Saturday 9/22/2018- Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis discuss the attempts to assassinate the character of Brett Kavanaugh with a salacious accusation by a purported victim who has no clear recollection of any of the details of the events with no corroborating witnesses or evidence. We point out that this is the same tactic (different circumstances) used against Clarence Thomas by Senate Democrats who presented a long-time Thomas hanger-on by the name of Anita Hill. Hill, by many accounts, committed perjury in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. We suspect a similar performance.

We finish with a discussion of the renewed effort to get an Article V convention called by conservatives which will be under the control of liberals and why that is the case.

Principles and Policies Podcast For Saturday 9/15/2018- Barry Sheets and Chuck Michaelis talk sbout the laughable attempt to blame Trump for “mishandling the response” to Hurricane Florence before it hits. We also discuss the claims about the grossly overblown claims of the number of dead from last year’s Puerto Rican hurricane then look at the coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 in New Orleans for comparison. 

We then spend some time looking at the existence of the “deep state.” We look at who is claiming that the “deep state” is a paranoid right-wing conspiracy theory at the same time they are reporting on (or failing to report on) the news stories that prove the existence of the “deep state.”
