We discuss David Dayen's response to the news about the Suprem Court's Roe news disclosure, and the 'promise' by Alito to “stop there” when turning back rights.
We also discuss the Ohio primary, and small-donation money is being used to defeat progressives inside parties to the benefit of the moderates.
David Dayen's proposal to let the Pentagon pay for aid to Ukraine: isn't that what the money is for? Considering how much money the pentagon has been allocated every hear, and that the US is not officially at war, they have the money, and supplemental requests should not be necessary.
We also discuss Biden's power to wipe out student debt.
We talk with Jasper Craven ,an investigative reporter covering the military and veterans' issues for outlets including the New York Times, the Intercept, the Atlantic, and the New Republic. He's coauthor of the 2022 book "Our Veterans" from Duke University Press.
We discuss Valley Forge Military Academy, a private school that is riddled with abuses of its students. This us due to the corruption, negligence of its administration. A sad, and disturbing story that continues.
