On Jan. 6, 2021, Jackson Reffitt watched the Capitol riot play out on TV from his family home in Texas. His father, Guy, had a much closer view. He was in Washington, armed with a semiautomatic handgun, storming the building. When Guy Reffitt returned home, Jackson secretly taped him and turned the recordings over to the FBI. His father bragged about what he did, saying: “I had every constitutional right to carry a weapon and take over the Congress.” Guy Reffitt was the first person to stand trial for his role in the riot, and the case has divided his family. This week, Reveal features the story of the Reffitt family by partnering with the podcast Will Be Wild from Pineapple Street Studios, Wondery and Amazon Music. Hosted by Andrea Bernstein and Ilya Marritz, Will Be Wild's eight-part series investigates the forces that led to the Jan. 6 insurrection and what comes next.

On Friday's Mark Levin Show, a Federal judge in Louisiana has blocked the Biden administration's effort to take out Title 42, which would have resulted in 18,000 illegal immigrants entering the U.S. each day. No country can handle that much immigration at once, and at the same time we're told the great replacement theory is just a white supremacist myth. This is a racist policy pushed by a racist president helped by a racist media. The United States of the Democrat party has resulted in shortages, inflation, and impoverishment. Also, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich joins the show to discuss his election victory and pushing back against the policies of Biden administration. Then, Robby Mook testified that Hillary Clinton personally signed off on sharing false information to sabotage Trump as an October Surprise. It wasn't just Hillary that knew about this all along, but Barack Obama and Joe Biden knew as well. They used the instrumentalities of law enforcement to play the dirtiest of dirty tricks. Hillary Clinton was behind Russia Collusion, and she should be punished. She triggered investigations and 3 years of sleaze by her media pals, all to sabotage the election and presidency of Donald Trump. Later, the Senate unanimously passed a bill to protect Supreme Court Justices, and Nancy Pelosi won't bring the bill to vote on the House floor. She doesn't mind that Justices are being threatened and is using rhetoric that can result in violence. This is the same attitude Pelosi took to not protect the Capitol building ahead of January 6th despite warnings. Finally, Stephen Miller calls in to explain that Biden is trying to bypass the Senate treaty process in order to bow our nation in submission to the WHO and surrender sovereignty and healthcare freedom.

This week, U.S. Representative Ruben Gallego of Arizona speaks with Farai about how his past experience as a Marine combat veteran helped him keep himself and fellow congresspeople safe during the insurrection on January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol building. The pair also discuss the mass shooting in Buffalo and how replacement theory is a driving force for racial discrimination. 'Our Body Politic Presents' features Pushkin Industries' podcast, “Getting Even With Anita Hill", with Anita Hill's interview of legal scholar and civil rights activist Kimberlé Crenshaw on Critical Race theory, a term Crenshaw helped coin in the late 1980s, that is now central to America's culture wars. And on our weekly segment, Sippin' the Political Tea, Farai speaks to two veteran journalists and longtime residents of Buffalo, N.Y., Rod Watson and Sandy White, about the impacts of the racist mass shooting on their community.
The January 6 Committee wants to know the purpose of a tour Republican Congressman Barry Loudermilk gave the day before pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol, and says there's evidence that directly contradicts previous claims by Republicans that they were "no tours, no large groups. No one with MAGA hats on in the Capitol before January 6". Votes are still being counted in Pennsylvania where the GOP Senate primary could be headed for a recount, with Trump-endorsed Mehmet Oz holding a razor-thin lead over Dave McCormick. Plus, a Buffalo mass shooting survivor shares her story, a confirmed case of monkeypox is identified in Massachusetts, and some Texas border communities warn of a migrant surge if the “Title 42” restriction is lifted by the Biden administration.

With far-right state Sen. Doug Mastriano on the verge of capturing the Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial nomination, Republicans are lashing out, furious that he could cost them a shot at a competitive race in the perennial swing state. Last-ditch efforts to stop Mastriano seemed doomed from the start. But the final blow likely came on Saturday, when former President Donald Trump threw his support behind Mastriano, who has been one of the chief boosters of conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and was also at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
By law, the legislative session must end by 5:00 p.m. on the last Friday in May, and the last big item on this year's agenda is the release of the fiscal year 2023 budget agreement.

In 2017, shortly after the deadly "Unite The Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, we released an episode titled ‘Misunderstanding Terrorism: Exposing Radical Caucasian Extremism' calling out what the vast majority of mainstream news outlets and then-President Trump wouldn't, yet what study after study had been warning about for quite some time: It wasn't foreign Muslims posing the biggest threat to America's safety—but white, far-right extremists. Tragically, this ideology's death toll continues to climb. We re-released this episode in the wake of the January 6 insurrection on the Capitol to shine extra light on this brutal trend, and we're sadly doing so again now, following the racially motivated mass murder of 10 people at a supermarket in Buffalo, NY.

In the waning hours of their 2022 legislative session, the Colorado General Assembly finally reached a compromise on a bill meant to stop the spike in fentanyl-related deaths across Colorado. After months of debate, they agreed to toughen punishments for possession of smaller amounts of the synthetic opioid. Just like the lawmakers, we made this bill our top priority for the legislative session, so Bree and Paul are looking back at how it all went down, unpacking what made it into the bill, and what's next. To get a full picture of how this debate played out, here's a rundown of our recent coverage: “More Like Poisoning than an Overdose” with Attorney General Phil Weiser (February 22, 2022) “Why the New Fentanyl Bill Has Harm Reductionists Concerned” with Harm Reduction Action Center executive director Lisa Raville (March 29, 2022) “Inside the Fentanyl Fight at the Capitol” with State Representative Leslie Herod (May 2, 2022) Here's a few of our sources for this conversation: For a breakdown of all the little things that were included in the final version of the fentanyl bill, check out this piece from Colorado Public Radio. This Denver Post article has a good explanation of the closing minutes of the legislative session, when a flurry of compromises led up to the final vote. Bree mentioned a new repatriation effort underway at the Denver Art Museum.

Following the leaked draft decision from the Supreme Court suggesting Roe v. Wade could soon be overturned, pro-abortion activists have become increasingly aggressive as they protest.In addition to demonstrating in front of the high court justices' homes, some protesters have taken things a step further and begun to physically attack pro-life organizations at their places of operation.Lois Anderson, executive director at Oregon Right to Life, and Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, both experienced attacks on their organizations.“We've always felt very safe there. It's a community that's just right next to our state Capitol, but we've been in that building for more than two decades and never even had so much as a protest,” said Anderson. “We've been quietly doing our work in that building, and it really was jarring.”They share their stories about how pro-abortion extremists attacked their facilities.We also cover these news items:Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wins his case at the Supreme Court involving campaign financing.U.S. troops will be redeployed to Somalia.Sweden is officially seeking to join NATO.Rep.

Most of us are looking for happiness. What if we focused on finding joy in life instead? Finding Joy in Life versus HappinessYvette firmly believes that joy is not a feeling but a state of mind, a way of living your life every day. Many of us may seek moments of happiness, feeling happy without a care in the world. Joy is getting into a state of contentment where you know you're in your groove making an impact on life, that there are hardships we go through, and that we can turn those downturns in life into our moments of crucibles that create a stronger, flourishing version of ourselves.Pursuits of happiness often deform into a life of experiences where we escape from reality to find a state of being “comfortably numb” to life. We want to be entertained with bigger and more amazing shows. It often reminds us of The Capitol from The Hunger Games where the citizens of Panem were so caught up in their own pleasures rather than meeting the needs of the greater society. The dystopian novel Brave New World also plays on this theme.Joy is when you plug your purpose into your life. You put the oxygen mask on yourself first, breathe deeply, and then put your time and efforts into making the world a better place from a sense of hope that it can be a better place.In This EpisodeShoutout to Oklahoma, especially Norman, OklahomaWhy the podcast Positively Joy was createdFacing the conflict of personal beliefs when you see the world through the lens of Jesus When you feel called to do a thing, go do that thingLearning that her faith as a Christian could combine with her careerThe toll of being married to someone who had unmanaged bipolar disorderGoing through life “comfortably numb” as Pink Floyd would sayRelationship priorities in marriage: God, then spouse, then the children (and why)The topics tackled by Positively Joy, and the power of connectionBeyond the Rut is a proud member of the Lima Charlie Network empowering others to reach new heights in leadership, self-development, and communication.

The January 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, intended to stop the certification of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States of America, “was as close to fascism as I ever want to see our country come,” says Jamie Raskin, Democratic Congressman from Maryland. And he should know -- Raskin is a Constitutional scholar as well as a long-time law school professor, and in the hours after the assault on the Capitol, he was chosen to head up the second impeachment investigation of Donald Trump. He's also a member of the House Select Committee currently investigating the January 6 attack, now set to hold publicly televised hearings next month. "The political scientists tell [us] that the key indicator of a successful coup is a recently failed coup where the coup plotters can diagram the deficiencies in the incumbent regime," says Rep. Raskin. In this exclusive interview, Raskin talks with Laura about the strengths and weaknesses in US democracy and how best to address them now.“There were a number of moments when we could have lost it all. And we want people to see precisely what happened and how close we came.” - Jamie Raskin, Congressman (D-MD), Member Jan. 6 House Select CommitteeGuest: Jamie Raskin, Congressman (D-MD), Member Jan. 6 House Select Committee Full episode notes including related articles and LFShow episodes to watch and/or listen to are posted at https://Patreon.com/theLFShow.

May 16, 1868. The Capitol is filled with spectators, anxiously trying to predict how each Senator will vote. It's the first presidential impeachment trial in American history, and its outcome will have profound effects on Reconstruction, the great project of rebuilding the nation after the Civil War. What made many members of Congress declare President Andrew Johnson unfit to lead that effort? And what motivated this former ally of Abraham Lincoln to declare himself an enemy of true Reconstruction?Visit History.com/Reconstruction for more.
