Roger Stone: Democracy's Undertaker
Welcome to a very angry episode of Gaslit Nation! The government may be back open, but the US is not out of danger – we are merely in the eye of the hurricane as damage from the shutdown mounts and Trump threatens both another shutdown and a scheduled “national emergency.” Sarah and Andrea discuss the toll the shutdown took on workers and how the broader ambition of the GOP – to strip the US down and sell it for parts – continues unimpeded. We note how female representatives like Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez grasp the stakes and are acting as responsible leaders while Congress and the justice system, on the whole, continues to fail citizens.  We rejoice in the indictment of the grotesque Roger Stone but wonder why it took forty years to stop him, and we break down the exploitative synergy between Stone, Wikileaks and the mainstream media. We wonder yet again how many indicted campaign associates it takes for someone to arrest the remaining complicit players who are actively abusing executive power (like Trump and Kushner) or who are building worldwide fascist movements (like Bannon). Finally, we take a long look at the citizen uprising in Venezuela, its exploitation by both the Trump administration and the Kremlin, and the promotion of harmful Russian state propaganda by members of Congress. Kleptocracy should be acknowledged as an obvious enemy of justice, and it is disappointing to see those who purport to represent the people instead parrot the rhetoric of a mafia state.

episode 30: in listing trump's monuments to himself, you neglected the biggest, maybe too obvious one of all: his southern border wall, paid for in just the way he likes best- the taxpayers.

and to your point I think in a lot of ways Trump is acting out what this government shutdown is, another way to look at it, he's trying to get out - he's waiting for the American public to fire him waiting for impeachment because he doesn't have a way out... because he can't quit on Putin but if the American public impeaches him he can say, well you know I couldn't do anything about that Vlad old buddy. I think he would be happy to be out I think he is in fact more afraid of the Russians who have a very long reach then he is of anything that the American public can do to him

what bothers me is that the American public isn't calling for impeachment that there are so much on social media that appears to be a moderate voice going oh well we don't need to go that far and the fact that they don't understand what impeachment is there confusing it with being indicted for crimes and not impeachable offenses

This podcast has inspired me in the midst of darkness and despair. You've reminded me that not only can we choose faith over despair, now is a time when making that conscious act to CHOOSE faith over despair becomes an act of empowered rebellion and radical loyalty to that which we love. Of course, in order to truly choose for what we love, we must KNOW what we love, as Sydette Harry described so well with "does baby have hat". Thank you!

Investigating and reporting on important issues affecting the nation. They were right before the election and they’re still right now. Listen up.

I really want to like this. But they both sound bored, flat and tired. I can be that by myself.

I think what you're doing is superb journalism. This kind of reporting and in-depth analysis about the Trump-Russia skullduggery is critical and needed more than ever during these critical times. Thank you so much! I'll be listening!

Not worth your time. Over-sensationalist and void of objectivity.

Hunter Cawood I've only listened to three minutes of one episode so far, so I haven't formulated any opinions yet. Just out of curiosity though, how much of the podcast did you listen to before making your conclusion? Have you listened to an entire episode to completion? Who knows, maybe I'll ultimately agree with you. But if I do, it will only be after listening to at least two or three episodes to completion.

Hunter Cawood But what if they're right and you couldn't see it? How would the lack of awareness affect your life today and later? Don't be gaslit, my friend.
