On January 19, 2022, the United States Supreme Court will hear an appeal by the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) from a successful challenge to campaign finance restrictions brought by Sen. Ted Cruz. The action centers on a provision of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA) of 2002, otherwise known as McCain-Feingold, that restricts candidates' ability […]

Tonight on the Last Word: The Justice Department says it's investigating the fake GOP electors scheme. Also, Newt Gingrich says the members of the Jan. 6 Committee should be jailed after one of his allies is subpoenaed by the committee. Plus, GOP leaders and conservative hosts push an anti-vax message. And Rep. Ruben Gallego reportedly meets with some of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's donors to discuss a Democratic primary challenge in 2024.

Sam and Emma break down all the big news from the past few days, from the rapidly developing situation in Ukraine, to COVID, labor, the courts, and more! Sam and Emma begin by diving into the “mother of all sanctions” bill being drafted by Sen. Menendez, from the semi-useful elements of to the GOP using them to wiggle in their Russian policy, and how to grapple with being anti-war and pro-Taiwan and Ukraine (it's not that hard). Next, they look into the judicial rejection of Alabama's redistricting, giving them two weeks to make room for a second majority Black district (despite representing over a quarter of constituents), and how cool it would be if there were a federal blueprint for what problematic gerrymandering looks like, with maybe four voting-rights-related sections before it. They wrap up the free-half with an extended discussion on the state of Omicron and the right-wing US media reaction, including Bari Weiss and Bill Maher whining about their incredible sacrifices - from washing food to watching Netflix - and the weirdness of their constant pro-Israel talking points suddenly disappearing as Israel employs the utmost policy requirements for a certain segment of their population. Ben Shapiro and Dore expand on this by reminding us that the real research was the COVID-positive friends we met (and the videos we reacted to) along the way, and Sam and Emma dive into the horrors of long-COVID in the countries with the best healthcare infrastructure. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma are joined by Nomiki Konst, as they debate who's more lost, Donald Trump trying to talk history, or Don Jr. trying to talk… at all. They also cover the Right's new propaganda series, made to make sure white kids never feel like their ancestors made mistakes, the differences between the non-delegation and Chevron doctrines, and Sarah Palin gets some Wattered down questioning about her COVID status as she traipses around NYC. Tucker and Sen Ron Johnson discuss those fools having conversations about COVID from their ivory towers (Note: Fox News' building is NOT ivory), plus, your calls and IMs!

The episode this week begins with a tale as old as time. In honour of Nick Kyrgios' fans sii'ng every point, Migs takes a trip down memory lane as he recounts a story where the podcast boys were in the same boat. In our high school days we too sii'd a group of performers only for it to be mistaken. We also read out our shameful PR apology for this mishap. We got a new game this week, “Questions Only.” Premise is quite simple, the boys are placed in a scenario and the only way to move forward in the game is to ask questions. If they can't think of a question fast enough, they are out but they are allowed one get out of jail free card. Finally we end with “Mind Your Manners,” where we analyse some everyday scenarios and the etiquette surrounding them. This week's scenarios include wedding gift etiquette, how to quit your job and how to gracefully accept Jesus in your life. Also this week: Cristiano Ronaldo, family reunions, gift registries and pamphlets. Segments this week: The Logue: Tired of reaching around each other (at least on the podcast), the boys have instead decided to reach around the week's news stories, events and viral trends. Questions Only: The lads are placed in various random situations, and can only progress in the game by asking questions only. Mind Your Manners: The boys discuss the dos and don'ts and correct etiquette to help you out of your next awkward social scenario. ___________________________________________________ FULL PODCAST EPISODES

[00:30] Border Insecurities (20 minutes)Canada and America are major trade partners, but Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau are barring unvaccinated truck drivers from delivering goods across the U.S.-Canada border. This self-inflicted wound has sparked major protests in Canada as the two leaders jeopardize the livelihoods of thousands of truck drivers and threaten to worsen the supply chain crisis. America's southern border, however, remains wide open with some estimating there will be upward of 2 million illegal border crossings this year. Meanwhile, speaking of borders, a report emerged yesterday that the Pentagon has put 8,500 troops on “high alert” in preparation for a potential conflict in Ukraine. Germany is actually aiding Russia's incursion by preventing members of NATO from delivering military support to Ukraine, and the tension in Eastern Europe is growing. What are we to make of all these border crises? [20:15] COVID-19: A Second Opinion (34 minutes)According to the latest COVID-19 vaccine updates from the CDC's VAERS web page, to date, 1,053,828 adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine have been reported. The reported deaths from the vaccine come to a total of 22,193, and the number of people needing urgent care as a result of the vaccine has reached 113,818. But these are statistics that Anthony Fauci and friends do not want anyone to hear about. Sen. Ron Johnson organized a hearing yesterday that exposed the truth the Communist left is fighting to suppress.

During the pandemic, the number of Americans enrolled in Medicaid skyrocketed from 75 million to 90 million. The issue? Not everyone currently enrolled in Medicaid is eligible.And the federal government is trying to prevent states from removing ineligible Americans from their rolls.This costs the taxpayer serious money, explains Hayden DuBlois, deputy research director at the Foundation for Government Accountability."The reality is very, very disastrous for state and federal taxpayers alike, for the truly needy who are kept waiting, for other budget priorities, which are now getting more and more crowded out by Medicaid as it's just consuming so much of state budgets," DuBlois says. "So it's really snowballed into this crisis that is quickly falling out of control."DuBlois joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss how the federal government is handcuffing states to Medicaid, and what conservatives should do to respond.

The General Assembly is considering legalizing psilocybin (aka magic mushrooms), which have proven medical utility in mitigating the effects of depression and PTSD. That bill has the support of veterans groups, and it's got the support of Senate Republican leader Tommy Norment.People who are victims of a disinformation campaign think their doctors should treat COVID with hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. However, doctors who prescribe those would face potential disciplinary action from the Board of Medicine. A bill from Sen. Amanda Chase would prohibit those medical boards from disciplining those doctors who violate their hippocratic oath to do no harm. Should Virginia's legislature intervene?JM Pedini is the development director for NORML and the executive director of Virginia NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. They are on the front lines of Virginia's legislative fight to legalize cannabis use, which requires a final vote from the General Assembly to implement. There are proposals to reinstitute a misdemeanor crime for marijuana possession in amounts 6 oz to 1 lb., and tweaks to creating a legal market without consideration for social equity, a priority for the Democratic caucus.See more at https://linktr.ee/JacklegMedia.

During our winter break, our co-host Scott Rogers pounced on a new job opportunity that he couldn't pass up. Sadly, this means he has to step down as Ludology co-host. In this episode, we'll chat with Scott about his time at Ludology, and ask him what awaits in the future. Because Scott's job commitments have already begun, we couldn't find a time when we could all meet. So Erica, Gil, and Sen all recorded their questions in one recording session, and Scott recorded his answers in another recording session.

Three names have been front and center for the past two years in investigations into the origin of the Coronavirus pandemic. Those names are Anthony Fauci, Peter Daszak, and Eco Health Alliance. Daszak is a close associate of Fauci. Daszak is also the leader of Eco Health Alliance. Fauci laundered National Institute of Health grant money through EcoHealth Alliance to get the dollars to the Wuhan Lab in China. It is public knowledge that Fauci used Daszak to funnel US tax dollars through EcoHealth Alliance to finance coronavirus experiments in Wuhan. Despite the public evidence that Fauci and Daszak worked together to move money to Wuhan, there have been no investigations of Fauci, Daszak, and EcoHealth Alliance. Does that seem strange to you? Other than Sen. Rand Paul, nobody else in Washington seems to care about the Wuhan lab link to Fauci and Daszak.Rick Wiles, Doc Burkhart. Airdate 1/21/22

Magnesium is essential for the immune system, including in the fight against cancer University of Basel (Switzerland), January 19, 2022 Previous studies have shown that cancerous growths spread faster in the bodies of mice when the animals received a low-magnesium diet – and that their defense against flu viruses was also impaired. However, there has so far been little research into how exactly this mineral affects the immune system. Now, researchers have discovered that T cells can eliminate abnormal or infected cells efficiently only in a magnesium-rich environment. Specifically, magnesium is important for the function of a T cell surface protein called LFA-1. (NEXT) More lycopene linked to longer lives for people with metabolic syndrome University of Nebraska Medical Center, January 16, 2022 Higher blood levels of lycopene may reduce the risk of mortality in people with metabolic syndrome, says a new study from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Lycopene is an antioxidant that is present in red- and pink-colored fruits and vegetables. As well as being used as a food coloring, it is also used in supplements and functional foods and beverages. New data published in Nutrition Research suggests that higher serum levels of lycopene were associated with greater survival times for people with metabolic syndrome, compared to low serum levels. (NEXT) Too much sugar during adolescence may alter brain's reward circuits European Journal of Neuroscience, January 19, 2022 A new study in rats may provide significant insights into the long-term impacts of over-consumption of sugary foods during adolescence. The study shows that the enjoyment of such foods later in adulthood is reduced in those who over-consumed early in life. Investigators found that this decrease in reward relates to reduced activity in one of the key hubs of the brain's reward circuitry, called the nucleus accumbens. Such long-lasting alterations could have important implications for reward-related disorders such as substance abuse or eating disorders. (NEXT) Unveiled the epigenetic mechanism by which vitamin D modulates the tolerance of the immune system Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (Germany), January 19, 2022 In autoimmunity, the mechanisms that guarantee that our defense system does not attack our own body - tolerance to oneself - does not work properly. Multiple sclerosis, which affects one in every 1,000 people in Spain, is a serious autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the myelin sheath of some types of neurons, causing progressive neurological disability. Dr. Esteban Ballestar, leader of the Epigenetics and immune diseases group at the Josep Carrreras Leukaemia Research Institute, and Dr. Eva Martínez-Cáceres, leader of the Immunopathology group at the IGTP-Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol, have recently published in the prestigious journal Cell Reports the mechanism by which vitamin D activates the tolerance program of dendritic cells. (NEXT) Study links poor sleep in seniors to more severe arteriosclerosis University of Toronto, January 19, 2022 Poor sleep quality in older people is associated with more severe arteriosclerosis in the brain as well as a greater burden of oxygen-starved tissue (infarcts) in the brain, both of which can contribute to the risk of stroke and cognitive impairment, according to the newest findings reported in the American Heart Association's journal Stroke. The relationship between cardiovascular disease and so-called "fragmented" sleep has been studied in the past, but this is the first study to look specifically for an association between sleep fragmentation and detailed microscopic measures of blood vessel damage and infarcts in autopsied brain tissue from the same individuals. Fragmented sleep occurs when sleep is interrupted by repeated awakenings or arousals. In this study, sleep was disrupted on average almost seven times per hour. Researchers found that greater sleep fragmentation was associated with 27 percent higher odds of having severe arteriosclerosis. Moreover, for each additional two arousals during one hour of sleep, researchers reported a 30 percent increase in the odds that subjects had visible signs of oxygen deprivation in their brain. (OTHER NEWS) America's New Class War Chris Hedges, January 18, 2022 There is one last hope for the United States. It does not lie in the ballot box. It lies in the union organizing and strikes by workers at Amazon, Starbucks, Uber, Lyft, John Deere, Kellogg, the Special Metals plant in Huntington, West Virginia, owned by Berkshire Hathaway, the Northwest Carpenters Union, Kroger, teachers in Chicago, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Arizona, fast-food workers, hundreds of nurses in Worcester, Massachusetts, and the members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. Organized workers, often defying their timid union leadership, are on the march across the United States. Over four million workers, about 3% of the work force, mostly from accommodation and food services, healthcare and social assistance, transportation, housing, and utilities have walked away from jobs, rejecting poor pay along with punishing and risky working conditions. There is a growing consensus – 68% in a recent Gallup poll with that number climbing to 77% of those between the ages of 18 and 34 – that the only way left to alter the balance of power and force concessions from the ruling capitalist class is to mobilize and strike, although only 9% of the U.S. work force is unionized. Forget the woke Democrats. This is a class war. The Democratic Party will not push through the kind of radical New Deal reforms that in the 1930s staved off fascism and communism. Its empty political theater, which stretches back to the Clinton administration, was on full display in Atlanta when Biden called for revoking the filibuster to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, knowing that his chances of success are zero. Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, along with several of the state's voting rights groups, boycotted the event in a very public rebuke. They were acutely aware of Biden's cynical ploy. When the Democrats were in the minority, they clung to the filibuster like a life raft. Then Sen. Barack Obama, along with other Democrats, campaigned for it to remain in place. And a few days ago, the Democratic leadership employed the filibuster to block legislation proposed by Sen. Ted Cruz. The Democrats have been full partners in the dismantling of our democracy, refusing to banish dark and corporate money from the electoral process and governing, as Obama did, through presidential executive actions, agency “guidance,” notices and other regulatory dark matter that bypass Congress. The Democrats, who helped launch and perpetuate our endless wars, were also co-architects of trade deals such as NAFTA, expanded surveillance of citizens, militarized police, the largest prison system in the world and a raft of anti-terrorism laws such as Special Administrative Measures (SAMs) that abolish nearly all rights, including due process and attorney-client privilege, to allow suspects to be convicted and imprisoned with secret evidence they and their lawyers are not permitted to see. The squandering of staggering resources to the military — $777.7 billion a year — passed in the Senate with an 89-10 vote and in the House of Representatives with a 363-70 vote, coupled with the $80 billion spent annually on the intelligence agencies has made the military and the intelligence services, many run by private contractors such as Booz Allen Hamilton, nearly omnipotent. The Democrats long ago walked out on workers and unions. The Democratic governor of Maine, Janet Mills, for example, killed a bill a few days ago that would have allowed farm workers in the state to unionize. On all the major structural issues there is no difference between the Republicans and the Democrats. The longer the Democratic Party does not deliver real reforms to ameliorate the economic hardship, exacerbated by soaring inflation rates, the more it feeds the frustration of many of its supporters, widespread apathy (there are 80 million eligible voters, a third of the electorate, who do not cast ballots) and the hatred of the “liberal” elites stoked by Donald Trump's cultish Republican Party. Its signature infrastructure package, Build Back Better, when you read the fine print, is yet another infusion of billions of government money into corporate bank accounts. This should not surprise anyone, given who funds and controls the Democratic Party. The rapacious pillage by the elites, many of whom bankroll the Democratic Party, has accelerated since the financial crash of 2008 and the pandemic. Wall Street banks recorded record profits for 2021. As the Financial Times noted, they milked the underwriting fees from Fed-based borrowing and profited from mergers and acquisitions. They have pumped their profits, fueled by roughly $5 trillion in Fed spending since the beginning of the pandemic, as Matt Taibbi points out, into massive pay bonuses and stock buybacks. “The bulk of this new wealth—most—is being converted into compensation for a handful of executives,” Taibbi writes. “Buybacks have also been rampant in defense, pharmaceuticals, and oil & gas, all of which also just finished their second straight year of record, skyrocketing profits. We're now up to about 745 billionaires in the U.S., who've collectively seen their net worth grow about $2.1 trillion to $5 trillion since March 2020, with almost all that wealth increase tied to the Fed's ballooning balance sheet.” Kroger is typical. The corporation, which operates some 2,800 stores under different brands, including Baker's, City Market, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Foods Co., Fred Meyer, Fry's, Gerbes, Jay C Food Store, King Soopers, Mariano's, Metro Market, Pay-Less Super Markets, Pick'n Save, QFC, Ralphs, Ruler and Smith's Food and Drug, earned $4.1 billion in profits in 2020. By the end of the third quarter of 2021, it had $2.28 billion in cash, an increase of $399 million in the first quarter of 2020. Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen made over $22 million, nearly doubling the $12 million he made in 2018. This is over 900 times the salary of the average Kroger worker. Kroger in the first three quarters of 2021 also spent an estimated $1.3 billion on stock buybacks. Class struggle defines most of human history. Marx got this right. It is not a new story. The rich, throughout history, have found ways to subjugate and re-subjugate the masses. And the masses, throughout history, have cyclically awoken to throw off their chains. (NEXT) Was Peter Daszak Working For The Central Intelligence Agency? Kanekoa, January 18, 2022 “We found other coronaviruses in bats, a whole host of them, some of them looked very similar to SARS. So we sequenced the spike protein: the protein that attaches to cells. Then we… Well, I didn't do this work, but my colleagues in China did the work. You create pseudo particles, you insert the spike proteins from those viruses, see if they bind to human cells. At each step of this, you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic in people. You end up with a small number of viruses that really do look like killers." This statement was said by EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak at a 2016 forum discussing “emerging infectious diseases and the next pandemic”. Daszak, who received more than $118 million in grants and contracts from federal agencies, including $53 million from USAID, $42 million from DOD, and $15 million from HHS, appeared to boast about the manipulation of “killer” SARS-like coronaviruses carried out by his “colleagues in China” at the now infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology. According to investigative research done by independent-journalist Sam Husseini and The Intercept, much of the money awarded to EcoHealth Alliance did not focus on health or ecology, but rather on biowarfare, bioterrorism, and other dangerous uses of deadly pathogens. EcoHealth Alliance received the majority of its funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), a State Department subsidiary that serves as a frequent cover for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Their second largest source of funding was from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), which is a branch of the Department of Defense (DOD) which states it is tasked to “counter and deter weapons of mass destruction and improvised threat networks.” The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has a long history of acting as a contract vehicle for various CIA covert activities. With an annual budget of over $27 billion and operations in over 100 countries, one former USAID director, John Gilligan, once admitted it was “infiltrated from top to bottom with CIA people.” Gilligan explained that “the idea was to plant operatives in every kind of activity we had overseas; government, volunteer, religious, every kind.” From 2009 to 2019, USAID partnered with EcoHealth Alliance on their PREDICT program which identified over 1,200 new viruses, including over 160 coronavirus strains; trained roughly 5,000 people around the world to identify new diseases; and improved or developed 60 research laboratories. What better way for the CIA to collect intelligence on the world's biological warfare capabilities? Dr. Andrew Huff received his Ph.D. in Environmental Health specializing in emerging diseases before becoming an Associate Vice President at EcoHealth Alliance, where he developed novel methods of bio-surveillance, data analytics, and visualization for disease detection. On January 12, 2022, Dr. Andrew Huff issued a public statement (on Twitter) in which he claimed, Peter Daszak, the President of EcoHealth Alliance, told him that he was working for the CIA. Dr. Huff continued, “…I wouldn't be surprised if the CIA / IC community orchestrated the COVID coverup acting as an intermediary between Fauci, Collins, Daszak, Baric, and many others. At best, it was the biggest criminal conspiracy in US history by bureaucrats or political appointees.” In February 2020, Daszak told University of North Carolina coronavirus researcher Dr. Ralph Baric that they should not sign the statement condemning the lab-leak theory so that it seems more independent and credible. “You, me and him should not sign this statement, so it has some distance from us and therefore doesn't work in a counterproductive way,” Daszak wrote. More unredacted emails have revealed that while these scientists held the private belief that the lab release was the most likely scenario, they still worked to seed the natural origin narrative for the public through the papers published in Nature Medicineand The Lancet. If Dr. Andrew Huff is telling the truth, Fauci, Collins, and Daszak might be covering up the lab origin not only for themselves, but also for the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, and the U.S. Government.

The Net Assessment crew assesses President Joe Biden's foreign policy in his administration's first year. There appear to have been more failures than successes, and Chris, Melanie, and Zack debated why that might be. But, as Frank Gavin explains in the lead essay at the Texas National Security Review, a bit of perspective is in order. Crafting and executing foreign policy is difficult, even for a seasoned hand like Biden. To the extent that the promise of his approach to the world hasn't lived up to reality, how much of that can be tied to his vision (is there one?), how much to poor execution, and how much to other factors over which the president has no control? Zack is annoyed with all the talk of a looming civil war in the United States, and Melanie gripes about the New York Times' coverage of a transplant patient who was the recipient of a pig's heart. Chris (with an assist from Melanie) faults newly-inaugurated Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin for wanting to make it easier to spend taxpayer money on a new stadium for the Washington Football Team. Attaboys to one of the first Tuskegee Airman, Gen. Charles McGee, who passed away at the age of 102, and to Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota for standing up to Trump. Links: Quick!

Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with an analysis of President Biden news-making, nearly two-hour press conference during which he addressed his administation's wins and challenges. Plus, we bring you breaking news tonight with major implications for the former president as the Supreme Court has rejected Donald Trump's effort to block his administration's records from being sent to the Jan. 6 select committee. And, Joy and her panel discuss the United States Senate coming closer to putting themselves on the historical record on voting rights. Additionally, President Biden weighed in on Wednesday with what he thinks Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin will do with the roughly 100,000 troops amassed on the border with Ukraine. Sen. Chris Murphy, who was part of a group of U.S. senators who recently traveled to Ukraine in support of its government, joins The ReidOut. Finally, in this edition of "The Absolute Worst," Joy calls out Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for supporting a bill that implies that White people are too sensitive to learn that slavery actually happened. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

A year ago, almost to the day, Joe Biden was sworn in as president of the United States. The gang looks back at a year full of shifts to progressive policies from Biden. Is he living up to his promise of restoring normalcy in America? Plus, Gallup says 2021 saw the greatest shift in party preferences for as long as Gallup has been around. What does that mean for the country and our politics? Finally, are we on the brink of World War III with Russia threatening to go into Ukraine?

The world is starting not to make sense, and chaos seems to be brewing on the horizon. Are Democrats seeing the writing on the walls? The latest hail Mary pass from the Left is basically “fear porn.” Joy Behar on "The View" said, “If the Republicans are back in power… they will destroy us,” and you have Rep. Eric Swalwell saying, “[Republicans] never peacefully concede power again.” Why are they both using “fear porn” to motivate followers to vote Democrat? Sen. Rand Paul sent a WARNING to Americans that “it's only going to get worse” when it comes to inflation. Oil prices are predicted to soar in 2022, and Goldman Sachs is predicting an increase to $100 per barrel. Is this administration even paying attention to what matters? Texas has been the beacon of freedom, but a new contender is rising. Ron DeSantis is making Florida into America's new Texas. Jeff Rosenblum, author, joins to discuss his latest book, “Exponential,” and how can a business in 2022 thrive by empowering instead of interrupting.

Mike's daily visit with legendary Dallas/Ft. Worth talk show host Mark Davis of 660AM The Answer has become appointment listening. Here's today's segment: How in the world can Democrats like Sen. Elizabeth Warren claim that it is racist to ask for ID when we vote, but not to require ID with your vaccination card to get into a restaurant in a blue city? Is this as diabolical as we think it is? Also, are people looking at the soaring crime & realizing that this is because of Democrat leadership? Are Americans aware that this crime is being encouraged & allowed because of radical progressive district attorneys like Alvin Bragg in New York? See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The NBA's Golden State Warriors basketball franchise is trying to distance itself from billionaire co-owner Chamath Palihapitiya following a remark he made on his podcast that "nobody cares" about the Uyghur Muslims facing persecution in China."Nobody cares about what's happening to the Uyghurs, OK? You bring it up because you really care, and I think it's nice that you care. The rest of us don't care," he said Saturday on the "All-in Podcast."In 2021, the U.S. government declared China's persecution of the Uyghurs people to be genocide.Team management responded to Palihapitiya's remark Monday, saying the investor “does not speak on behalf of our franchise.” Amid criticism, Palihapitiya has since backpedaled on his remarks, writing on Twitter, “I believe that human rights matter, whether in China, the United States, or elsewhere."Millions of Uyghurs have been forced "inside political reeducation camps in China," says Olivia Enos, a senior policy analyst for Asian studies at The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)Enos joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to respond to Palihapitiya's remark that "nobody cares" about the Uyghurs, and to explain why China is targeting the ethnic group.We also cover these stories:White House press secretary Jen Psaki says Russia could attack Ukraine at any time.Sen.

Joy Reid leads this edition of The ReidOut with breaking news in the investigation of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. On Tuesday the select committee issued subpoenas to four of Donald Trump's most prominent lawyers, aides and advisors. They include Trump attorney Jenna Ellis, Trump legal advisor Sidney Powell, and senior Trump campaign aide Boris Epshteyn. Yet, the marquee name is Rudy Giuliani, Trump's “TV lawyer” and the former New York mayor who is also under federal investigation for his dealings in Ukraine. Next, as the Senate begins debate on federal voting rights protections, Republicans would have you believe there is no election subversion taking place in Republican-leaning states. Sen. Cory Booker joins The ReidOut to discuss. Finally, Joy explains why Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch is the subject of tonight's "Absolute Worst." All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

On Martin Luther King Day, Sen. Raphael Warnock says he won't rest until voting rights are secured and calls the voting rights bills a “defining moral moment in America.” Then, Jennifer Hudson reflects on music legend Aretha Franklin choosing her for the film “Respect” and shares what she learned about Franklin's friendship with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In Hot Topics, the co-hosts honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and discuss his impact on today's America.
President Biden returned from his Atlanta trip last Thursday after the Democrats' hopes to end the filibuster were extinguished due to a lack of support from both Republicans and a few members of his own party. As the Biden administration continues its push for voting rights legislation, on the international stage it must address rising tensions with Russia. Senate Minority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) joins to explain his view that the Democrats' advocacy to change the filibuster is rooted in partisan politics. Sen. Thune also discusses how the GOP is preparing to discuss economic issues ahead of the midterms, and what action the U.S. can take against Russia that would send a strong message to Putin. While “Dry January,” or abstaining from drinking alcohol for all 31 days of the month, used to be a challenge many Americans took part in to cut back, the stress related to the current Omicron surge is serving as a reminder that old habits die hard. Recent studies have shown that Covid-19 shutdowns led to an increase in alcohol sales and intake alike. This trend can have serious long-term health effects for many Americans. FOX News Medical Contributor Dr. Marc Siegel discusses his concerns over the country's growing drinking problem, ways to curb consumption, and why he is a fan of “Dry January.” Plus, commentary by U.S. Army Veteran and Minnesota gubernatorial candidate Kendall Qualls.
Much media attention has been rightfully aimed at the recent failures of Congress, but there was, in fact, lawmaking happening at the end of 2021. In this episode, learn about some laws that didn't get much attention, including a law that solves a real problem and a few laws designed to economically punish China. We also take a look at what is happening in Congress as we start 2022 and look for opportunities for effective activism as we enter this Congressional election year.

Jan 13, 2022. “Senator Sinema Announces Opposition to Changing Filibuster Rules.” C-SPAN. Sen. Krysten Sinema: I rise at a challenging divisive time for our nation. For years, America's politics have spiraled steadily downward into increasingly bitter tribal partisanship and our democracy has been strained. While that may sound abstract, it is a problem that hurts Americans in real, tangible ways. These deepening divisions hurt our ability to work together to create new job opportunities, protect the health and safety of our communities and country and to ensure everyday families get ahead. Our country's divisions have now fueled efforts in several states that will make it more difficult for Americans to vote and undermine faith that all Americans should have in our elections in our democracy. These state laws have no place in a nation whose government is formed by free, fair and open elections. I share the concerns of civil rights advocates and others I've heard from in recent months about these state laws. I strongly support those efforts to contest these laws and court and to invest significant resources into these states to better organize and stop efforts to restrict access at the ballot box. And I strongly support and will continue to vote for legislative responses to address these state laws, including the freedom to vote Act, and the John Lewis voting rights Advancement Act that the Senate is currently considering. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that were sent the underlying disease of division infecting our country. The debate over the Senate 60 vote threshold shines a light on our broader challenges. There is no need for me to restate my long standing support for the 60 vote threshold to pass legislation. There's no need for me to restate its role protecting our country from wild reversals and federal policy. Eliminating the 60 vote threshold will simply guarantee that we lose a critical tool that we need to safeguard our democracy from threats in the years to come. Our mandate, it seems evident to me work together and get stuff done for America.
