Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Once again today, America was rocked by yet another mass shooting, this time at a high school in South Florida where 17 were killed. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) notes, yet again, that these types of mass shootings "happen nowhere else other than the United States of America," and Republican officials controlled by the funding of the massacre-enabling National Rifle Association refuse to take even the slightest action, year after year after year, to curb the nation's gun violence epidemic. The Republican Party is, in fact, controlled from top to bottom by big money corporate donors. A number of stories today underscore the necessity of getting money out of politics, particularly anonymous "dark money" from corporate PACs like the NRA: the West Virginia candidate dragged off the statehouse floor for speaking out on new fracking legislation; Republican state legislators in Arizona pushing a law banning cities from requiring that "dark money" donations be disclosed in local elections. Speaking of money in GOP politics: Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen claims he used his own personal money to buy the silence of porn star Stormy Daniels, but a closer look at his statement reveals he may not have admitted any such thing. Was the payout an unlawful, unreported, in-kind campaign donation? Finally, Desi Doyen has our latest 'Green News Report', with still more news on the dangerous and deadly effect of corporate money polluting our air, water and politics...  Brad Friedman, Desi Doyen
