GasLit Nation: Kill the Filibuster: The Adam Jentleson Interview


The Democrats have taken the House, the Senate, and the Presidency – yet they are still claiming that they can’t pass the policies Americans desperately need. What’s stopping them? The filibuster – a weapon of white supremacy used by Southern states to block progress on civil rights. Sound familiar? In this interview, Adam Jentleson — an expert on Senate procedure and the author of the book Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy — explains what the filibuster is, how the Senate is using it to hold Americans down, and how to get rid of it.

GasLit Nation: Texas Republican Massacre

GASLIT NATION WITH ANDREA CHALUPA AND SARAH KENDZIOR

This year we’ve already had a plague, a violent insurrectionist attack, and an unrepentant mafioso president running free. Apparently that wasn’t enough so last week the U.S. got a once-in-a-century Texas storm (but sadly probably not once in *this* century) that turned into a humanitarian catastrophe. We discuss the GOP hostage state of Texas, Merrick Garland, Roger Stone’s role in the violent attempted coup, why you shouldn’t trust Cy Vance, the power of art and the grassroots, Taylor Swift, and more!

GasLit Nation: Where’s Christopher Wray?

In this episode, we tackle some of the remaining questions left over from the violent attack on the Capitol and the Senate hearings. Why were Trump’s elite criminal backers – in particular, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon, Rudy Giuliani and Lin Wood – not mentioned in the hearings even though they served as a bridge between Trump and violent insurrectionist groups? Why is the FBI not giving the public regular updates on its investigation?

GasLit Nation: Investigate Now!

GASLIT NATION WITH ANDREA CHALUPA AND SARAH KENDZIOR

Welcome to the first Gaslit Nation episode held in the Biden eras! The Trump administration is no longer a transnational crime syndicate masquerading as a government – but unfortunately there is still a transnational crime syndicate at large. While it’s obviously a relief to no longer have a mafia White House, the hostile actors that helped a Kremlin asset to take executive power still remain, and we break down these ongoing threats in this episode.
