It’s Friday, January 27, 2017. I am Kevin Mahoney, editor and founder of Raging Chicken Press and Raging Chicken Media. Each week I talk to our Capitol muckraker-in-chief, Sean Kitchen, about the good, the bad, and the ugly in state and national politics.
One week out from the inauguration of the Trump Organization and the Doomsday Clock has moved 30 seconds closer to midnight according to the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. Looking questionable if Democrats really have the spine to seriously resist. The Trump organization continues to crackdown on journalists as it gets ready to launch State Run Trump Media. Meanwhile people are not waiting around as millions of people take to the streets and STAY THERE in the days following the inauguration.
Meanwhile here in Pennsylvania, Republican lawmakers pushing a bill that would punish Sanctuary Cities and Counties. The Chancellor of the PA State System of Higher Education looking to deepen the austerity by closing or merging universities. Thousands take to the streets in Philadelphia to protest the GOP retreat. It’s been quite a week. All that and more on today’s show.
