Congress doesn't have the power to attack America's sovereignty or to open our borders, brainwash our children and promote racism. Everything going on in Washington DC is an extraconstitutional subterfuge.

The once-great Republican Party is filled with quislings led by Mitch McConnell and every single baby born will now have a debt of $750,000 as soon as they are born as a result of today's capitulation on the infrastructure bill. Then, President Biden doesn't care about America, he is a selfish street-thug politician supported by an unqualified vice president who's failing miserably at the border, a power-hungry Senate Majority Leader using New York to guide all of America, and a Speaker of the House who's a San Francisco psycho! Later, transgenderism and critical race theory are not government education, it's Democrat Party indoctrination.

It is a legislative procedure that was used just last week by Republican Senators to block the Democrats' push for a congressional commission to investigate the Jan. 6th attack on the US Capitol. A growing number of Democrats argue that the filibuster —a Senate rule that allows one or more lawmakers from the minority party to prevent or delay indefinitely a vote on a piece of legislation — is being used by Senate Republicans to obstruct President Biden's agenda. Several other progressive pieces of legislation and White House priorities, including an infra-structure bill, have been stalled in the evenly-split Senate. Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer, wrote in a letter to his Democratic caucus, that Republican tactics have demonstrated “the limits of bipartisanship and the resurgence of Republican obstructionism” —warning that “the next few weeks will be hard and will test our resolve as a Congress and a conference”. Meanwhile a coalition of progressive groups are stepping up the pressure on Senate Majority Leader Schumer to get rid of the filibuster. More than 100 groups sent a letter to the New York Senator calling on the Senate Democratic caucus to “eliminate the filibuster as a weapon” that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell can use to “block efforts to defend and strengthen our democracy and make our government work for the American people”.

In June, the director of National Intelligence and the Secretary of Defense are expected to deliver a report about what the government knows on the subject of “unidentified aerial phenomena,” more commonly known as U.F.O.s. The issue is nonpartisan: while he was the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, a Democrat, secured funding for a secret Pentagon project to investigate the subject; John Podesta, a chief of staff in the Clinton White House, argued for government transparency on the topic; most recently, the Republican senator Marco Rubio introduced language in last year’s Intelligence Authorization Act calling for the forthcoming report. This is a shocking turn of events. For generations, U.F.O.s were in the purview of late-night call-in radio shows and supermarket tabloids, not the Department of Defense. Gideon Lewis-Kraus reports on how this change came about. The journalist Leslie Kean, who published a bombshell story in the New York Times, explains how the C.I.A. got involved in casting doubt on U.F.O. sightings. Reid tells Lewis-Kraus that the Pentagon refused to authorize his inspection of contractor facilities which, it was rumored, held U.F.O. crash debris. And a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Christopher Mellon, says that the phenomena observed in many sightings cannot be explained as advanced technology built by one of our rivals. “I really doubt that the Russians or Chinese could be that far ahead of us,” he says. “It looks like centuries ahead.” So, whereas the word “aliens” still seems like taboo in serious conversation, he adds, “it's hard to come up with a hypothesis to explain that without considering the possibility that some other civilization is involved.” Gideon Lewis-Kraus’s “How the Pentagon Started Taking U.F.O.s Seriously” appears in the May 10th issue of The New Yorker. This segment features scoring by Pablo Vergara. Additional archival clips were provided courtesy of James Fox.

Bill Frist is a nationally acclaimed heart and lung transplant surgeon, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader, and is actively engaged in health policy and education reform. In this episode, Bill takes us through his long and varied career in medicine, politics, and business, which includes establishing the organ transplantation program at Vanderbilt as well as rising from the lowest-ranked member of the U.S. Senate to the Majority Leader in two terms. We discuss some of the most significant moments of his time in the Senate, such as advocating for AIDS prevention programs' funding and addressing complicated issues like stem cell research and the end-of-life issues raised by the Terri Schiavo case. We also hear his first-person account of what happened behind the scenes on September 11, 2001, his frustration with our lack of preparation for the pandemic, and his thoughts about the current state of U.S. politics. Finally, we talk about his current endeavors in health policy and education reform. We discuss: Bill’s decision to pursue medicine and do organ transplants (3:40); The miraculous nature of organ transplants: History, Bill’s work, and the most exciting things to come (12:00); Frist’s experience building up the heart transplant program at Vanderbilt (21:45); The famous rivalry between surgeons Denton Cooley and Michael DeBakey (29:15); How the medical field can attract bright young people to pursue medicine (33:00); Bill’s decision to leave medicine and run for the US senate (38:00); The value in having scientists and physicians in Congress (47:30); A discussion on whether or not senators should have term limits (55:30); The highly polarized nature of politics, and how we can fix it with empathy (1:00:30); Bill’s time in the Senate and quick rise to Senate Majority Leader (1:05:30); The lifesaving impact of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) under George W. Bush (1:15:15); How Bill reversed course on his view of the value and morality of stem cell research (1:19:45); Complex end-of-life decisions, and Bill’s role in the infamous Terri Schiavo case—a story that captures the conflict among law, morality, and improving technology (1:30:00); Remembering the events of September 11th from Bill’s perspective in the Senate (1:49:45); The coronavirus pandemic: Bill’s accurate 2005 prediction, and a discussion about future preparedness (1:56:45); The divided state of US politics, and how we can come together (2:06:45); How experience in medicine and politics is shaping Bill’s current endeavors in business, reforming education, palliative care, and more (2:12:45); and More.
