The world of right wing extremism rises again. In this podcast, I talk about my life in the John Birch Society and my way out of the radical right.

Same playbook: hate, fear, paranoia with lots of racism. If you're wondering who Trump is -- here's my opinion.

Trump failed his foreign policy quiz. He really let the cat out of the bag with his analysis of when America was great.

Join me for first Florida screening of "The Brainwashing of My Dad" by Jen Senko and Matthew Modine, producer. Jen's documentary digs into the history of our right-wing media from the early days of the John Birch Society (that's what I talk about) through the FOX era. After the 7:15p screening, join Jen Senko, Matthew Modine, and me for a Q & A with the audience. Order your tickets today.

The GOP has spent most of the last 8 years deflecting blame for the economic crisis while blaming President Obama for failing to fix the problems he inherited. Of course, they opposed almost everything that would have helped put people to work and extended aid to those in need. Now they tell us that they can fix the economy with the same tax-cut, war-mongering stuff that got us into the mess in the Bush Administration. There's only one cure for this situation: no Republican in the White House, period.

Jane Mayer talking about the John Birch Society, the Koch Brothers, and their anti-government positions. I'm so glad to hear an award-wining investigative journalist writing extensively about the Birch society.
