Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
The White House, lawmakers and corporate media continue to squabble today over Donald Trump's racist and reportedly vulgar slur during a bipartisan meeting on immigration last week, even as his Departments of Justice and Homeland Security issued a new, misleading report on terrorism that focuses on foreign-born terrorists and downplays the far greater threat of domestic attacks by homegrown white Americans. The White House and Congress attempt to strike a government spending deal that includes protections for DACA recipients in time to avoid a government shutdown. A changing of the guard in both New Jersey and Virginia following last November's elections is reshuffling public policy, including NJ's wildly unpopular Republican Gov. Chris Christie signing into law a ban on deadly bump-stock devices like those used in the mass shooting in Las Vegas last year. But in VA, where Republicans managed to barely hang on to majorities in the state legislature thanks to gerrymandering of legislative districts, the GOP majority in the state Senate gutted most of new Democratic Governor Ralph Northams gun safety agenda. Then Drug Policy Alliance advisor and marijuana legislation lobbyist MIKE LISZEWSKI explains Attorney General Jeff Sessions roll-back of an Obama-era federal law enforcement guidance regarding states in which marijuana has been made legal for medicinal and/or recreational use, the effect it is likely to have, and how Congress might be able to move forward under an Attorney General who is an avowed enemy of cannabis users and a President who claims to believe in states' rights on the matter -- but it may take a reshuffling of the deck in the 2018 mid-term elections...  Brad Friedman, Mike Liszewski, Desi Doyen
