Did you hear that your Congress overwhelmingly approved a $717 billion military spending bill which included an $82 BILLION INCREASE (more than the entire military budget of Russia)? Or that Bernie Sanders' amendment to audit the Department of Defense, (which somehow lost track of up to $20 TRILLION over the past few years) was voted down by Republ…
 
The What Would Bernie Sanders Do Podcast is back! Why? Well, even when broadcast media thinks they are "fact-checking" or dispelling the lies about immigration coming from the Trump administration, the lies are still repeated far more than the truth. The lack of accurate and persistent pushback from the talking heads on CNN, MSNBC and NPR led Dr K …
 
We tell Hillary Clinton "What Happened" because apparently nobody else will. In plain black and white, Clinton unwittingly exposes PRECISELY what happened by delivering a memoir which includes the kind of deception and divisiveness that turned the Democratic Party against its core values, all for the sake of serving the interests of Queen Clinton a…
 
Donald Trump fans wish it were 1861 again. Emboldened by Republican leaders who've reinforced hatred of the Federal Government that's existed since "liberals" took away their slaves, we all must suffer the ravages of an unresolved violent and racist history as Trump continues the party's "patriotic" mission of reducing access to education and healt…
 
Recorded May 5, 2017. Both parties have put us at the mercy of the for-profit health insurance industry for too long, and while Democrats sing "Nah-nah-hey-hey" at House Republicans for passing the treacherous "American Health Care Act", all this political football diminishes the health of millions of Americans . But the present charade on both sid…
 
Let them eat chocolate cake...while we kill civilians. Who'll save us from WWIII? Certainly not the Republicans... but not the Democrats either! Prominent Democrats praise Trump's response to Syria and call for one of their own to be ousted from Congress for telling the truth! Of course, when what Tulsi Gabbard says exposes Barack Obama and Hillary…
 
Recorded February 17, 2017. Turn on NPR or other corporate media, and you're likely to hear Russia and/or Putin mentioned hundreds of times in a matter of hours. Dr K counted! But how much did we hear about Gen. John Nicholson's statement to the Senate Armed Services Committee that after 15 years at war we're at a "stalemate" in Afghanistan? We dis…
 
Recorded January 27, 2017. You always hurt the one you love, and Trump loves the middle-class and veterans. Is it any surprise his first executive actions will inflict pain upon...the middle-class and veterans? Bernie asks Trump's HHS cabinet nominee Tom Price if he believes healthcare is a right. When Dr. Price responds with the typical conservati…
 
Recorded January 13, 2017. Back in 1971, when Democrats were Democrats and Republicans were Republicans, Ted Kennedy opposed Nixoncare because it put Americans' health in the insurance industry's hands. Single payer was the only answer. Nearly 40 years later, the more conservative Obamacare is reviled by Republicans but unanimously embraced by Demo…
 
WWBSD #68, recorded 12/29/16. Do we have the power to head off Trump's agenda and push ahead with our own? Executive Director of Chicago Progress Andre Vasquez says we do, but not just through posting on social media. If we sit back while "our" party's administration is infiltrated by Goldman Sachs and the rest of Wall Street, and dismiss Hillary's…
 
Recorded November 12, 2016. Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton and will be sworn in as President of the United States. If ONLY there were someone who could have TOLD us this might happen! Well, someone did tell us, and it was the same guy who in the past has correctly predicted so many other things: BERNIE SANDERS! We tell that story and give cl…
 
Recorded on November 7th, 2016. Podcast Extra! David Bender, Community Organizer at Chicago's American Indian Center, tells us about the Dakota Access Pipeline and upcoming No DAPL rally. And Dr K goes Columbo on Host Darren's President Obama as he unravels the mystery of why the president is "going to let it play out for several more weeks" instea…
 
If Donald Trump's favorite response to uncomfortable debate questions is to defer to his indisputable greatness as the remedy for the country's ills, Hillary's defaults are the Children's Defense Fund and Russia. While the media conglomerate's reality show, partially scripted by the Clinton campaign, has been constructed to keep us on the edge of o…
 
Recorded October 13, 2016. They're Putin Us On! Red-baiting and fear mongering have been part of American exceptionalism since the 1950s and McCarthyism. Now the Democratic Party pulls out all the stops to divert attention from leaked e-mails from John Podesta and Clinton herself (among others). We discuss the clear evidence of how far Democrats wi…
 
Recorded October 2, 2016. State Representative Will Guzzardi of Illinois' 39th District is heading up a sane, actionable effort called Tuition-Free Illinois, which will work for free tuition at Illinois public colleges and universities! As you'll hear, Illinois CAN AFFORD THIS. If you don't think so, listen here -- and to our last podcast with Tom …

Recorded September 16, 2016. Special "Transparency" Episode! Bernie Sanders speaks out, at their conception, against abominations against our environment and tribal rights like the Dakota Access Pipeline. So why does it take public embarrassment or outrage to get leaders like President Obama and Hillary Clinton to take action? Could it be that they…
 
Recorded September 5, 2016. Why do our Democratic leaders speak out only AFTER the fact, whether it's EpiPens or pipelines? After Mylan raised the price of the EpiPen some 300% over 7 years, Hillary Clinton expressed outrage over their greed....on the campaign trail, of course. Darren and Dr. K. express outrage over Mylan's intermingling with the D…
 
Recorded August 19, 2016. Hillary Clinton continues to show why the excitement over Bernie "pushing her to the left" and the "most progressive Democratic platform ever" is just empty rhetoric. Clinton chooses ardently pro-TPP, pro-fracking Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to chair her transition team, which means thousands of appointments will…
 
Recorded August 12, 2016. The FDA just ordered the DEA to maintain marijuana as a Class 1 (prohibited) substance, because it has no "currently accepted medical use" and "the known risks of marijuana use have not been shown to be outweighed by specific benefits." We tell you how Bernie saw it coming and why the FDA would make such anti-scientific cl…
 
Recorded August 7, 2016. THE REVITALIZED AND REINVIGORATED WWBSD PODCAST IS BACK! We've got a new opening and new mission -- and even a SPONSOR! First, we discuss a Democratic National Convention delegate's testimony and how the party's actions belie calls for "unity" and a move toward a progressive platform. Speaking of actions not matching words,…
 
Recorded July 26, 2016. Is it the Russians who are "messing" with our democracy, and Who Could Not Be Moved By Those Speeches? The millionaire pundits on MSNBC are doing the work of their peers in the DNC. Chris Matthews just rhetorically asked as to why the Russians are trying to get Donald J. Trump elected, referring to their hacking of DNC serve…
 
Recorded July 21, 2016. It's not easy bein' green...or getting anyone from that party elected president. Bernie and Jill Stein are close in ideology, but clearly not at all alike in their ability to mobilize the masses. So what should we do? Infiltrate and try to reform a corrupted party, or build a new party from the ground up? Do we abandon Berni…
 
Recorded July 13, 2016. ABANDON SHIP?! Jill Stein or Bust!!? Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton and he's a sellout? If he didn't make the endorsement, you wouldn't see him at the Democratic Convention in July. And you wouldn't see him all over corporate media making Hillary Clinton speak the words he would have her say. She goes from corporate…
 
Recorded July 7, 2016. House Democrats BOOED Bernie Sanders because he wouldn't offer a timeline for endorsing Hillary Clinton... We, uh, "discovered" audio of that closed door meeting! Timing is everything! The very day that an FBI report exposed Hillary Clinton for lying to Congress and America, as well as for being "extremely careless" and not a…
