Liberal Dan Radio 11/25/2020: POTUS transition updates, GA Runoff, and Qweerty Gamers

On the November 25, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

Joe Biden’s transition team is finally going to be able to push forward and work with people within the Trump Administration so the next term can start. However, that doesn’t mean Trump has conceded. 

The Georgia runoffs are in full swing. There are reports of some eleciton fraud going on but getting information on that is somewhat difficult. I will go into more details as to why. 

And at the bottom half of the hour I welcome on Ray Lancione, President and CEO of Queerty gamers, to discuss The Queerty Gamers Victoria Kennedy Micro-grant Program

Those topics, your calls, and more tonight at 8PM Central on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That’s Right.

Liberal Dan Radio 11/18/2020: How Much Damage Can Donald Trump Do?

On the November 18, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio

When a toddler doesn’t want to leave, they throw a tantrum. Well, the giant orange toddler who has been filling the oval office is throwing a huge tantrum and will be causing as much damage as he can do on the way out. 

He is firing people left and right. 

He is withdrawing troops. 

He is not handing over the keys. 

He continues to cast doubts on the election results. 

We will talk about just how much damage “The Donald” can do on the way out. 

We may also have some additional guests. If we do, I will update the show description accordingly.

Liberal Dan Radio 08/12/2020: #BidenHarris2020

On the August 12, 2020 episode of Liberal Dan Radio, the #YearOfLiberalDan continues and Joe Biden announced his nominee for Vice President, Senator Kamala Harris. I will be talking about that choice and while I understand there may be people who are not happy, that we need to put our egos aside and get to work. 

Of course, this isn’t the ony news of the week. Donald Trump said some crazy stuff during his press conferences this week. From Spanish Flu to his word salad. But some liberals also seem to want to assign some value to the words that go beyond the context in which they were given. I will go into why the media needs to be more responsibile with how it reports as well as the unfair double standards placed on liberals that we unfortunately have to abide by. 

And the GOP keeps confirming where it is and how Donald Trump has emboldened the white supremacists in the party. A primary for Congress in GA ended up propelling a QAnon white supremacist into the general election. Gerrymandering likely means she will be going to DC with her bigotry. Donald Trump made this all possible. 

All those issues and more on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From the Left, That’s Right. Wednesdays at 8pm central on BlogTalkRadio.

“But they’re the same!”

I know the majority of Bernie Sanders supporters will be voting for Joe Biden in the fall. They understand what is at stake. However, just like 2016 there is a large enough section of people who supported Bernie in the primaries who are threatening to jump ship. In some cases these people even voted for Trump in 2016.

So what do you say when these particular Bernie Sanders supporters try and claim that Biden and Trump are the same and that we are just “centrists”?

I bring up the Supreme Court.

Trump could very well promote Amy Comey Barret to the Supreme Court if RBG resigns or passes away.

That would kill abortion rights and LGBTQ rights in this country. Goodbye Roe v Wade. Goodbye Obergefell V Hodges. Hell, goodbye Lawrence v Texas!

Biden is not going to promote someone to SCOTUS who will overturn those rulings.

Are you gonna blame “centrists” if Trump is able to win and kill abortion rights in this country ? I am progressive and extremist AF on abortion rights. There should be no exceptions to when a pregnant person should be able to abort.

Would I prefer Biden be for Medicare for all? Sure.

Guess what? Bernie would have needed a Congress that would have enacted M4A. So work to elect that Congress. Get that bill on Biden’s desk with a way to pay for it. (Biden said he wouldn’t sign M4A if it is wasn’t paid for) Force his hand.

Bernie would have needed a Congress to enact legislation to ban fracking. Elect that Congress. Force Biden’s hand.

Bernie would have needed a Congress that would have passed green new deal energy bills. Elect that Congress anyway. Force Biden’s hand. But don’t sit by and let Trump name the next one or two SCOTUS nominees.

*This of course is irrelevant in many of the other safe red states. I see no evidence that Louisiana will do anything but vote Trump. So if you live in Louisiana, or any other safe red state, I couldn’t care less who you vote for.

But in states like MI/WI/PA/FL etc, voting third party, writing Bernie in, or doing anything other than voting for the Democratic nominee will set us back decades.

And if you want to label me a centrist for that? Then I question your definitions.
