We’re officially one month into Trumplandia, folks. The Trump Organization kicked off Deportation Nation this week. Jeff Sessions will finally get a chance to squash Reefer Madness. Bannon reaffirms strategy to attack media as the “opposition party.” Standing Rock evicted as Dakota Access Pipeline green lighted again.
Closer to home, PA Dept of Env Protection gives green light to Mariner East 2 pipeline as protests and legal battles continue. Activists are taking a Stand against Williams Transco Central Penn Line South. Senator Eichelberger steps in it, because he cares about education. PASSHE Chancellor ramps up the Shock Doctrine even the system “self-study” is delayed. Oh, and our friend Eichelberger is all for shutting down a couple universities…because, you know, he cares about education. And thanks to a court ruling, a Republican may take over in a district that is 95% registered Democrat. And Democratic Senator Bob Casey gets his first official challenger – Rick Saccone. Looks like Saccone is getting ready to bring the crazy. And we’ll reflect back on our weekend at Keystone Progressive Summit! All that and more on today’s show.
