Cryptocurrencies often don't fit neatly into traditional asset buckets. They're not exactly currencies. They're not exactly commodities. And while many share commonalities with stocks, there are differences there as well. As such, US regulators haven't come up with clear rules on their trading and issuance, leaving entrepreneurs and investors in limbo. On this episode, we're joined by Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey, who has been harshly critical of the SEC's approach, particularly under current Chairman Gary Gensler. The Senator also talks about his own legislative proposals to start providing more clarity. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Full Hour | In today's third hour, Dom kicks off the Dom Giordano Program by discussing a situation playing out in the State of Illinois as Texas continues to send illegal immigrants to the sanctuary state to deal with their needs. Dom plays back a clip from a Mayor of a Chicago suburb who had immigrants shuttled to his town without his knowledge, and asks which Republican town would suffer the same consequences if Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney did something similar. Then, Senator Pat Toomey returns to the Dom Giordano Program to provide his opinion on the Senate race to replace his seat between Dr. Mehmet Oz and John Fetterman. Toomey and Giordano discuss Fetterman's recent comments that suggest he may think he's running against Toomey rather than Dr. Oz, calling him ‘a miracle' at one point during his weekend speech. Toomey explains his frustrations with the Democratic candidate, telling how he does not believe the State will be properly served under Fetterman, using his refusal to debate as evidence. Then, Giordano asks Toomey if he has any idea what Lindsey Graham was thinking in unveiling a proposal for a nationwide abortion ban the same day that the focus should have been on Biden's announcement of his ridiculous Inflation Reduction Act. Then, Dom delves into the news revealed by Pat Toomey that John Fetterman has allegedly agreed to a debate in late October, only 2 weeks prior to the election. Dom offers up what he believes Dr. Oz's strategies should be in approaching the debate against Fetterman. Also, throughout the hour, Dom takes callers for today's side question, asking for the greatest all-time television characters.

Hour 2 - Good Tuesday morning! Here's what Nick Reed covers this hour: Voters say they are less likely to vote for a candidate who supports President Joe Biden's plan to cancel a chunk of student loan debt to qualifying individuals, a Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group survey released this week found. John Fetterman, the Democratic nominee looking to fill retiring Sen. Pat Toomey's (R-PA) seat, decided to hold a pro-abortion rally, on September 11th. Rep. Charlie Crist's (D-FL) recent display — and praise — of divisive rhetoric is not new to his campaign trail, as a recently resurfaced video shows the Democrat speaking to supporters in Pinellas County, essentially comparing himself to Jesus and the governor to Satan.

Hour 1 of The Dawn Stensland Show: A hit-and-run in North Philadelphia killed a 26-year-old mother of four. Police are currently searching for the driver. According to an NBC10 report, Philadelphia's litter problem could ultimately impact the quality of the city's drinking water with trash being washed into local streams and rivers. On Wednesday, federal officials will begin investigating a series of thefts involving Philadelphia mailboxes. For nearly a year, thieves have stolen mailed checks—redirecting them towards their own bank accounts and costing local residents tens-of-thousands of dollars. A Pennsylvania woman was killed by a shark while snorkeling in the Bahamas. Governor Tom Wolf signed an executive order to expand voter registration access throughout Pennsylvania. On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Pat Toomey appeared at a joint press-conference with Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz where the two criticized John Fetterman for his refusal to debate. Interestingly, Fetterman's hometown paper—the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette—recently published an editorial expressing concern about the former mayor's health following a stroke he suffered in May. The editorial stated, “[i]f Mr. Fetterman is not well enough to debate his opponent, that raises serious concerns about his ability to serve as a United States senator.” In a speech he gave in Pittsburgh, PA on Labor Day, Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate John Fetterman struggled to express his thoughts—leading to more speculation from Republicans that he may not be healthy enough to serve in the Senate if he wins his election in November.

Live from the no panic zone—I'm Steve Gruber—I am America's Voice— Delivering an Equitable and Socially Just morning news and talk program— using only sustainable topics that maintain maximum diversity and inclusion— and for the record no animals were harmed in the production of this program!   Here are three big things you need to know right now— ONE— Brand new evidence proves we have been right the whole time about Hunter Biden's laptop—the DOJ blocked release of the truth to impact the election of 2020— TWO— Another revelation—this time from Nate Silver and the 538 blog—proves Pfizer—played politics to keep its vaccine secret until after the 2020 Election—are you seeing a pattern yet? THREE— And a news flash for Socialists that think that they have somehow taken the upper hand in the race to the 2022 mid-term elections—the news flash is this—you have not—   You know you can look back a many previous Presidents that thought they had made big strides to move their agenda forward and had secured the support of the American people—and in the end—the mid-terms belonged to the opposition party—   I mean Barack Obama—jammed through Obamacare and a host of other big ticket items—and still lost 63 seats in the house and 3 seats in the Senate—   Donald Trump—brought tax relief and a border wall and still lost the house by a wide margin in the midterms—   And I will put my reputation on the line right now—and tell you the GOP is going to dominate the mid-terms—and in ways that the left and the media lapdogs—don't even understand—   I mean look at the polls—just as I have been telling you—the Socialists are in real trouble—and Michael Bennet in Colorado is the one I told you to watch closely—most political pundits put his seat as safe Democrat—I told you it would be in play—and after all the “big wins” the left has been claiming in recent weeks—Bennet has a lead of just 5 points according to Trafalgar—and he didn't even break 50 percent support—by the way check the calendar—its August—which means—he is in real danger of losing that seat to the Republicans—Just like I have told you for a year—   And if Bennet can only muster a 5 point lead in Colorado—a decidedly left leaning state—then the GOP is in far better shape to capture seats in New Hampshire, Arizona, Nevada and Georgia—   And before you get too worried about Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—lets me be clear—we were told Ron Johnson, Senator from Wisconsin was going to get crushed by a former Senator Russ Feingold in 2016—and yet he won by 3 points—   We were also told Democrats would easily take Pennsylvania—and yet Pat Toomey cruised to an easy re-election—in fact all over the country—in Iowa, Maine, Florida and host of other states—not only were the polls wrong—they were dramatically wrong—   So my takeaway as we head toward the Labor Day weekend—is the GOP is in far better shape than the glazed eyed sycophants of communism in the newsrooms of MSNBC, Axios, Politico and Nate Silvers 538 even understand—   They are not looking at the data with any discerning and valuable reflection—they are looking and reporting what they hope will happen—   In the end I stand by my predictions—which have been far more accurate over the last 5 elections cycles than Nate Silver and the rest of the really smart people inside the beltway—   And maybe that really is the point—I don't live inside the cesspool of Washington—and therefore—maybe I have a better view of the rest of the country—that cares more about their jobs, their paychecks and their freedom that these far left network fools across the nation—   And make no mistake—when it all settles down—it really is about inflation and the economy stupid—and its not going to undergo some miracle before November 8th—

Sometimes, the good guys and gals win. Sometimes, the bad guys lose. This is one of those times. The historic SFC Heath Robinson PACT Act for veterans passed the Senate by a vote of 86-11.  But it was wild, it was emotional, it was dramatic, it was infuriating, and it was inspiring. It showed what is still possible in America if a group of concerned citizens are united, focused and motivated. And in this episode, we'll take you inside one of the most dramatic and important political dramas in years.  Our guest in this episode was a key leader in making that victory happen. When, Senator Pat Toomey and the other Republican Senators that stood in the way of the PACT Act, he united the troops, stood alongside Jon Stewart, helped to rally an unstoppable force of veterans, and ultimately emerged triumphant. He's a true leader and one we're proud to call a friend of the show. He's a humanitarian, an activist, and a badass superhero: Matt Zeller (@MattCZeller). Matt is one of the leading advocates for veterans, for Afghan allies, and for America. He's a combat veteran and Army Major that made it out of Afghanistan alive only because of the courage of his Afghan interpreter. And he's been paying it forward ever since. Matt is the courageous Co-Founder of No One Left Behind, aTruman National Security Fellow, the author of Watches Without Time: An American Soldier in Afghanistan, and the newest member of the powerhouse team at Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). Matt joined us on this show for Episode 138 and Episode 127 to sound the alarm about the imminent collapse of Afghanistan and the chaos that would follow. And now he's back to break down the fight for the PACT Act–and update us all on the terrible state of Afghanistan one year after the disasterous American withdrawl. Matt was part of the veterans “Fire Watch”, a group of advocates camped out on the Senate steps pressuring the hold-out senators to pass the PACT Act. They served as America's conscience–and inspired people worldwide. Matt has been on countless TV and radio shows, inside the chamber for the pivotal vote, and he's somehow, still standing. Still fighting. And he's back to break it all down for us in compelling detail.

Full Hour | Today, Dom led off the Dom Giordano Program by discussing a previewing a reveal of what he was all dressed up for yesterday, teasing that he gave an interview to a large source based on the topic of conservative radio. Then, Giordano moves into a conversation centered on local politics, particularly how the life issue has played out in races in Kansas and how it's being framed here in both the Senate and Gubernatorial races. Giordano asks listeners whether the conservative stance of ‘no exceptions' in an abortion ban is a dangerous prospect, wondering whether a candidate can win in Pennsylvania with said stance. Then, Dom welcomes Senator Pat Toomey back onto the Dom Giordano Program to discuss the pushback he's facing in the media and by people like Jon Stewart over his vote against a recent bill, in which they're framing as a vote against Veteran's. Dom jokes with Toomey about the new feud between him and Stewart, explaining that this is a prime example of what Democrats do when they'd like to force through one of their propositions. Toomey explains his stance on the ‘Burn Pit' bill that would further fund services for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits, telling that this is the usual tactic of utilizing a sympathetic group to further their cause, then using celebrities to shame others into support. Toomey tells of concerns he has of passing the bill, predicting that Democrats would use this bill to acquire further funds for unrelated matters. Then, Dom asks for Toomey to provide his analysis of the Senate race to replace his seat, offering critiques of John Fetterman and telling what the Oz camp needs to do better.

It was the news that caused a social media meltdown and earned strong words from veterans and comedian Jon Stewart: Senate Republicans blocked the PACT Act, which would have expanded healthcare coverage for military veterans exposed to toxins and burn pits during their service. Who could argue with that? Boyd goes through what happened, where the Democrats went wrong, and why politics turned a slam dunk into a partisan failure. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On August 26, 2015, the lives of Andy and Barbara Parker changed forever when their daughter Alison, a journalist for WDBJ7, was murdered on live television near Roanoke, Virginia. Vowing to do whatever it takes, Andy turned his anger into outspoken activism and action to fight gun violence.

Andy believes: A. Disinformation plays an enormous role, with violent imagery organizations like Facebook not only unwilling in trying to to stop, but actively promoting for engagement/clicks, killing us. No country's perfect, but other democracies like Germany, U.K., Canada, etc have at least tried to rein in disinformation from Q-anon types. B.

Good Monday everyone! This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Monday, June 13th, 2022… and I’m here to bring you what you missed over the weekend… so buckle up, and let’s get to it. Today we’ll start off with the Senate announcing bipartisan framework for gun control package… https://www.foxnews.com/politics/senate-bipartisan-framework-gun-control This is from Fox News, A bipartisan group of senators announced a "commonsense" agreement on a gun package Sunday. "Today, we are announcing a commonsense, bipartisan proposal to protect America’s children, keep our schools safe, and reduce the threat of violence across our country. Families are scared, and it is our duty to come together and get something done that will help restore their sense of safety and security in their communities," the group of senators said in a press release on the announcement. The senators include: Chris Murphy, John Cornyn, Thom Tillis , Kyrsten Sinema, Richard Blumenthal, Roy Blunt, Cory Booker, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Chris Coons, Lindsey Graham, Martin Heinrich, Mark Kelly, Angus King, Joe Manchin, Rob Portman, Mitt Romney, Debbie Stabenow, and Pat Toomey. "Our plan increases needed mental health resources, improves school safety and support for students, and helps ensure dangerous criminals and those who are adjudicated as mentally ill can’t purchase weapons. Most importantly, our plan saves lives while also protecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans. We look forward to earning broad, bipartisan support and passing our commonsense proposal into law," the senators continued in their group statement. The proposal includes initiatives to support state crisis intervention orders; a national expansion of mental health services for children and families; expanding mental health programs in schools; enhanced review process for gun buyers under the age of 21; penalties for straw purchases; additional funding for school resource officers. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued a statement in support of the agreement later Sunday, saying he was "glad Senators Cornyn and Murphy are continuing to make headway in their discussions." "I continue to hope their discussions yield a bipartisan product that makes significant headway on key issues like mental health and school safety, respects the Second Amendment, earns broad support in the Senate, and makes a difference for our country," McConnell added in his statement. If you needed another reason to despise public school, get a load of this: NYC shells out $200K in taxpayer dollars to bring drag performers to public schools: report https://www.foxnews.com/us/nyc-200k-taxpayer-dollars-drag-performers-public-schools This from Fox News, by the way, Fox News, New York City shelled out more than $200,000 in taxpayer funding in the past five years to have drag queens come into classrooms and interact with schoolchildren as young as age 3, according to a report. The nonprofit Drag Story Hour NYC, previously known as Drag Queen Story Hour NYC, received approximately $207,000 in taxpayer funding since 2018, the New York Post reported, citing city records. The total includes a $50,000 contribution from New York State through its Council on the Arts, along with $157,000 earmarked from New York City’s Departments of Education, Cultural Affairs, Youth and Community Development, and even from the Department of Transportation, according to the Post. Records show that the non-profit received $46,000 from city contracts for appearances at public schools, street festivals and libraries in May alone ahead of Pride month. The events involve cross-dressed drag performers reading to school children at public schools, libraries and other LGBTQ centers, but has expanded to also include coloring activities. Photos show drag performers also instructing children in classrooms how to apply drag makeup. According to a reading list the non-profit shared online, performers read a variety of books ranging from classics like "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "The Rainbow Fish," which discuss topics like growth, acceptance and diversity, to others that more overtly discuss gender identity, such as "The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish Swish Swish" and "The Dragtivity Book." Sigh… I know I’m preaching to the choir here on CrossPolitic when I say, “get your kids out of Public School…” well, here’s an alternative option to that kind of marxist education. Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute. Did you know that more than 75% of those raised in evangelical, Presbyterian, and Reformed churches don’t pursue any kind of Christian higher education? Surprising isn’t it. Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute is seeking to provide a new, exciting, and affordable option for Christians. Their mission is to build Kingdom culture in the workplace by equipping their students in a Trinitarian worldview and vocational competencies. Their low-cost full-time program offers integrative course modules, internships, and mentoring so their students can finish debt-free with vocational preparation, a robust faith, and financial potential to build strong godly families and homes rooted in their communities and churches long-term. Visit their website at www.cornerstonework.org to find out more about enrolling. Now shifting to news across the globe: Tasty name but no Big Mac: Russia opens rebranded McDonald's restaurants https://financialpost.com/pmn/business-pmn/tasty-name-but-no-big-mac-russia-opens-rebranded-mcdonalds-restaurants It might look and smell like McDonald’s but now it’s Vkusno & tochka. The golden arches are gone, the Filet-O-Fish is simply a fish burger. The Big Mac has left Russia. A new era for Russia’s fast-food and economic scene dawned on Sunday, as McDonald’s restaurants flung open their doors in Moscow under new Russian ownership and with the new name, which translates as “Tasty and that’s it.” The unveiling of the rebranded outlets, more than three decades after the American burger giant first opened its doors in Moscow in a symbolic thaw between East and West, is once again a stark sign of a new world order. The reopenings took place on Russia Day, a holiday celebrating national pride. The fortunes of the chain, which McDonald’s sold when it exited the country over the conflict in Ukraine, could provide a test of how successfully Russia’s economy can become more self-sufficient and withstand Western sanctions. On Sunday, scores of people queued outside what was formerly McDonald’s flagship restaurant in Pushkin Square, central Moscow. The outlet sported a new logo – a stylised burger with two fries – plus a slogan reading: “The name changes, love stays.” The queue was significantly smaller than the thousands of people who thronged to the original McDonald’s opening there in 1990 during the Soviet era. Vkusno & tochka’s menu was also smaller and did not offer the Big Mac and some other burgers and desserts, such as the McFlurry. A double cheeseburger was going for 129 roubles ($2.31) compared with roughly 160 under McDonald’s and a fish burger for 169 roubles, compared with about 190 previously. The composition of burgers has not changed and the equipment from McDonald’s has remained, said Alexander Merkulov, quality manager at the new company. McDonald’s closed its Russian restaurants in March and said in mid-May that it had decided to leave the country altogether. In a sign of the haste the new owners have had to rebrand in time for the launch, much of the packaging for fries and burgers was plain white, as were drink cups, while takeaway bags were plain brown. The old McDonald’s logo on packets of ketchup and other sauces were covered over with makeshift black markings. Sergei, a 15-year-old customer, saw little difference though. “The taste has stayed the same,” he said as he tucked into a chicken burger and fries. “The cola is different, but there really is no change to the burger.” Iran and Venezuela sign a 20-year agreement https://www.theblaze.com/news/-2657497477 Venezuela’s socialist leader Nicolas Maduro and Iran’s hardline theocratic president Ebrahim Raisi recently signed a 20-year cooperation agreement. The Associated Press reported that this new agreement came just one day after Maduro praised the Iranian Islamic Republic for sending badly needed fuel to Venezuela despite American sanctions. In an interview with Maduro after he arrived for a two-day visit in TAY-RON, Iranian state media reported that Maduro heaped praise upon Iran’s efforts to send fuel tankers in support of his country. Maduro said, “TAY-RON’s delivery of oil to Caracas was a great help to the Venezuelan people.” Maduro’s visit to Iran comes as tensions heighten across the Middle East as negotiations over Iran’s nuclear deal fell apart and as U.S. sanctions and rising global food prices choke Iran’s suffering economy. This was Maduro’s first visit to Iran. A high-ranking delegation from Venezuela comprised of political and economic officials joined Maduro on his visit to Iran after receiving an invitation from Raisi. Venezuela, like Iran, is under heavy sanctions from the U.S., which hinder its economic growth. In a joint press conference on Saturday, Raisi and Maduro signed the 20-year agreement that solidified the country’s commitment to economic, political, and militaristic cooperation. Maduro reportedly said that Venezuela and Iran are united by “a common vision.” The two presidents are aligned on international issues, and both have suffered economic difficulties, which are said to be caused by sanctions from America and its allies.

Now let’s wrap this news brief up with the topic I love. Sports! Commanders' Jack Del Rio leaves Twitter following Jan. 6 remarks https://www.foxnews.com/sports/commanders-jack-del-rio-leaves-twitter-jan-6-remarks Washington Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio’s comments about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the 2020 George Floyd protests have now cost the coach his social media account. The longtime NFL coach deactivated his Twitter account following the controversy about his remarks and the $100,000 fine levied by Washington coach Ron Rivera. Del Rio on Wednesday downplayed the Jan. 6, 2021, riots at the Capitol and questioned why the intense protests in the summer following Floyd’s death didn’t receive the same scrutiny. Del Rio called the Jan. 6 riot a "dust-up at the Capitol" and later attempted to backtrack on his remarks. "I made comments earlier today in referencing the attack that took place on the United States Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. Referencing that situation as a dust-up was irresponsible and negligent, and I am sorry," Del Rio said in a statement. "I stand by my comments condemning violence in communities across the country. I say that while also expressing my support as an American citizen for peaceful protest in our country. I have fully supported all peaceful protests in America. I love, respect and support all my fellow coaches, players and staff that I work with and respect their views and opinions." Rivera on Friday announced a fine and said the comments were hurtful to the community and didn’t reflect the views of the organization. "He understands the distinction between the events of that dark day and peaceful protests, which are a hallmark of our democracy," Rivera said. "Words have consequences, and his words hurt a lot of people in our community. I want to make it clear that our organization will not tolerate any equivalency between those who demanded justice in the wake of George Floyd's murder and the actions of those on Jan. 6 who sought to topple our government." Rivera said Del Rio’s fine would be donated to the United States Capitol Police Memorial Fund. There were also calls for Del Rio to resign, or be fired if you can believe that… shocking I know. But his team doesn’t appear to feel that way. Commanders defensive lineman Jonathan Allen said he wasn’t bothered by Del Rio’s opinion. "Me personally, I don’t care about his opinion. As long as he shows up every day, and he works hard, that’s what I want from my defensive coordinator," Allen told NBC Sports Washington. "In my opinion, everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. Some guys decide to share it on Twitter; some guys don’t. It doesn’t make one person better than the other. At the end of the day, you can have a difference in opinion and still respect one another. I feel like that’s what our country is about. That’s what our team is about." And finally, for those of you who may have missed game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics, and the Golden State Warriors, here’s a brief recap, courtesy of Hall of Fame broadcaster, Mike Breen.

Live—from the campus of Hillsdale College in beautiful Hillsdale Michigan— this is Scot Bertram in for Steve on the Steve Gruber Show for –June 3rd 2022—   —Here are 3 big things you need to know—   One —The FDA's response to a recall at a baby formula facility in Michigan will be the subject of a new investigation.  The Department of Health and Human Services confirmed the probe regarding the Abbott Nutrition plant in the southern part of the state.  The probe will focus on the FDA's actions before the recall in February.   Two—  Four of the five remaining Republicans seeking their party's nomination for governor debated at the Mackinac Policy Conference on Mackinac Island yesterday. Ryan Kelley refused to take part over COVID-19 requirements that were in place for the conference but not for the debate. Tudor Dixon, Ralph Rebandt, Kevin Rinke, and Garrett Soldano took part.   And number three—One Republican senator says he's "optimistic" about the state of gun talks following recent mass shootings across the U.S.  Pennsylvania's Pat Toomey tweeted that sentiment after meeting with fellow senators to discuss what a potential gun reform package would look like.  Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy also feels momentum is building toward a bipartisan bill.

Welcome back to the Bill Bradley Collective, where it is primary season and your hosts are here to break down all of the results and narratives on the heels of primary elections that have set the table for forthcoming midterm elections this November. Among the highlights of the conversation include a trio of Republican Georgia races where perhaps Donald Trump's influence or lack thereof made dominated headlines; the end of the Madison Cawthorn error in North Carolina's 11th congressional district; the prospects of flipping departing Pennsylvania senator Pat Toomey's seat blue following John Fetterman's landslide primary victory; progressive victories in Oregon and elsewhere; and finally a nod to November as we take the temperature of how fights over abortion and gun rights will influence the midterms. But first, let there be rants, as Ed brings us up to speed on the increasingly diminished NFL Pro Bowl and everyone's favorite commish's intent to spice up the meaningless affair; Andrew remembers a shooting star of the film world, highlighting his most famous turn and lamenting the lack of notable success that followed; and finally Zak applauds the impassioned words of Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr and the thoughtful choice to use his media availabilty to address the tragic mass shooting of a Uvalde, Texas elementary school.

The field is crowded, and since the City Cast team hasn't had the opportunity to meet a ton of candidates personally this round, we thought we'd check in with someone who has.  Journalist Natalie Bencivenga has been chatting up candidates and thought leaders for months now on Instagram Live in a regular segment called “After Hours” for Pittsburgh City Paper.

Full Hour | In today's third hour, Dom welcomes New Jersey State Senator Steve Oroho back onto the Dom Giordano Program for an update on the debate over sexual education in New Jersey. First, Oroho contextualizes the debate, telling what it is that's being pushed by progressive New Jersey lawmakers and why Oroho has teamed up with Sen. Holly Schepisi and others to combat the curriculum. Then, Senator Pat Toomey returns to the Dom Giordano Program for his monthly check-in, discussing multiple issues playing out in Washington, D.C. First, Giordano asks Toomey about a hearing held with the United States Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen, in which Toomey grilled Yellen on the impact of climate change on the economy. Toomey takes us inside the chambers and tells us why he approached the issue that way, and points out the ludicrous nature of claims centered on climate change coming out of the Biden administration. Then, Giordano looks for Toomey's thoughts on the unprecedented Supreme Court leak centered on Roe v. Wade, asking how Bob Casey, Pennsylvania's other Senator, can continue calling himself a pro-life Catholic while taking a pro-abortion stance after the leak. Then, Giordano asks Toomey for his thoughts on the race for the successor to his seat, telling why he's concerned about a late surge by a certain candidate. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)

Full Hour | Today, Dom leads off the Dom Giordano Program by giving some highlights of last night's Senate debate between candidates vying to fill the soon-to-be vacant seat left after Senator Pat Toomey's upcoming retirement. First, Giordano expresses his frustration with the moderators of the debate, telling that he agrees with the notion shared by all the candidates on the stage, calling out the biased questioning centered on the 2020 election. Barnette calls out the moderator, noting that none of the Democratic candidates have been asked similar questions, with Giordano explaining why this point is an important one to make when discussing the debate. Then, Giordano reveals that he's posted another fire poll on Twitter asking listeners who they'd vote for if the election were tomorrow, telling that Kathy Barnette continues to dominate listener polls, and pontificates why she continues to rise in popularity. After that, Giordano plays back an argument between Carla Sands and Kathy Barnette, after saying for the second night in a row that Barnette continues to play the race card in her campaign. Dom takes umbrage with the continued reliance on identity politics, and plays back a clip from another candidate, Sean Gale, who doubled down on what Sands was saying about Barnette's reliance on her race. Dom's comments on Gale prompt the candidate to call into the show, which turns into a discussion over whether Gale's attacks on Barnette are fair, with Gale lamenting that Dom seemingly supports Barnette, even though he's never offered an endorsement for the candidate. Then, Dr. Mehmet Oz, candidate of U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, returns to the Dom Giordano Program to discuss multiple issues playing out in the Senate campaign. First, Dr. Oz compliments Giordano for the compelling radio debate with Sean Gale prior to joining the show, with Giordano asking for Oz's thoughts on the racial attacks levied against Barnette, with Oz coming to Barnette's defense. Then, Giordano asks Oz about his track record of attendance at debates, asking why Oz missed last night's debate, with Oz telling that he had a long-standing prior commitment he needed to attend instead. Then, Giordano and Dr. Oz delve into the issues most important to Pennsylvanians, particularly the effects of Coronavirus edicts on education, and the Progressive push to cancel student loan debt.
