Black Hive spokesperson and political analyst Anthony Rogers-Wright discusses Republican and Democratic fundraising in the 2024 race, when the US will look seriously into federally funded elections, how fears of political violence might be leading to increased weapons purchases in the US, and why so few of former President Donald Trump’s former staff seem to want to vote for him again.
Kim Keenan, adjunct professor at George Washington University and former general counsel of NAACP, discusses a proposed shield law in Maine to protect patients and healthcare providers who provide services that may be illegal in other states, whether the practice of "judge shopping" will actually be ended by new federal court guidance, the likely fate of Texas’ attempt to make illegal immigration a state crime, the phenomenon of the "Great Resignation" across the House of Representatives, and the possible running mate of independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
