Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
It was only last week that Senate Democrats caved to Donald Trump and the Republicans following just two days of a government shutdown over protections for some 800,000 "Dreamers" -- Obama-Era DACA recipients who, thanks to Trump, now face deportation as soon as March 5. DAVID FARIS, Roosevelt University political scientist, argues the Democrats reversal deeply weakened what had been a fairly strong position, and afforded time for Trump to move the goal posts even farther right on his immigration demands, as another federal funding bill and shutdown fight comes in to focus on Capitol Hill next week. Other important news headlines that are likely to disappear among the madness in D.C.: another school shooting today, this time in Los Angeles, just days after a fatal school shooting in Kentucky last week. Pennsylvania Republicans have refused a court order to turn over districting documents, after the court found the GOP-controlled state legislature unconstitutionally gerrymandered U.S. House districts in violation of state law. Its a worsening behavior pattern by Republicans across the country, and the White House, to simply reject to the rule of law and refuse orders of the court. Good news for voters in Florida, where a federal court has found Republican Gov. Rick Scotts process to consider restoration of voting rights for some 1.5 million former felons in the state to be unconstitutional. Finally, Desi Doyen joins us for the latest 'Green News Report', with some good news (for a change) for Puerto Rico, good news for the state of New Jersey, and some more bad news for the planet and the state of Maine under the dumbest governor in the nation...  Brad Friedman, David Faris, Desi Doyen
