Kagro in the Morning - April 22, 2021

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop, this is Earth Day! David Waldman eco-celebrates in KITM Earth Headquarters. Meanwhile, Eco-rebels misutilize poo outside the White House, perhaps in an effort to get their hands on pink wheelbarrows. Elsewhere on Earth, Greg Dworkin brings us the latest in polling and pandemics. Are vaccine rejectors like motorcyclists that refuse to wear a helmet? If so, why do they keep...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman gets us over the hump, that many of us will sled down this morning. Derek Chauvin is guilty. Guilty. Guilty. Accountability, and maybe a step towards justice took place last night, as Black lives mattered, for a moment. Justice requires neverending vigilance. In this case, the credit goes to 17 year old Darnella Frazier and her cellphone videography prowess. Then, police in Columbus, Ohio released...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) It’s the 50th of 420! Happy! ...uh, where were we? David Waldman delivers sad news: Ted Nugent has contracted COVID-19, and as his, and our luck, would have it, continues to survive. Ted Nugent and Donald Trump somehow both recovered to see another bigoted dawn. If only Ted would have chosen to suck exclusively American guns and bullets, he might not have this problem now. As for Covid, an ounce of prevention...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) The Mighty KITM Worldwide Multiplex has battery backup! Nothing can stop us now! David Waldman and Greg Dworkin are charged up and ready to go: If only John Boehner Republicans were in charge there would be no immigration concerns, mass shootings or racism. If George W. Bush was in charge the world would be a progressive utopia. Ah, but Republicans had that former guy come in and ruin it all, aka “William of...

4/16/2021
Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) How about politicide? No, not “political genocide”… but literal “political suicide” — an opposing political party united in an actual deadly suicide pact of their own choosing. Not the entire population of the party, mind you, but precisely focused, so that the more entrenched their ideology, the tighter they will all grip as they leap off the cliff together... It’s a fantasy, of course, as it would be impossible...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Happy Tax Day! (Traditional) David Waldman starts off Thursday with a lightning round list of Republicans being Republicans: In Florida, Matt Gaetz’ former colleagues want to check out some high school genitalia. Gaetz’ former classmates will tell you Matt hasn’t changed a bit since high school… maybe even junior high. Kristi Noem will make undocumented immigrants feel about as unwanted as Native Americans in her...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Are vaccines breaking the pandemic wave? Oh, so close — Maybe, maybe not, but it does feel more close every day. Even so, who would want to go back to work with the people you used to work with? Or back into public with them for that matter? You can get a lot more done at home, anyhow. For instance, check out David Waldman and Greg Dworkin. Whether working from home or at the studios in KITM World Headquarters,...

4/13/2021
Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) It has been days now since David Waldman received his second vaccine shot and yet he still doesn’t feel bad at all! (He feels a bit ripped off, to be honest.) He still has a chance though, and we here all hope he feels lousy soon. Nothing marks the end of a pandemic like people getting back out and shooting each other, and themselves. Did your gun shoot your neighbor? Your child? Maybe it gave you a bullet,...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and the rest of the staff here at KITM World Headquarters got all our shots for all 19 Covids and we’re raring to tear into the news this week: The Derek Chauvin trial continues, as the examples of why these trials are needed multiply. Minnesota police shot and killed Daunte Wright after detaining him for air fresheners on his mirror. More protests, more teargas and rubber bullets. A...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez, Owen Wilson and Luke Wilson, all those Hemsworths, David Waldman and… David isn’t saying. But, it is whomever’s birthday! Happy birthday! While we’re celebrating, thank you to all you out there sending in recurring contributions! We find that we rarely have to call you defectors to keep you in line. Stay healthy, keep the money coming, and never take the drug Ivermectin unless...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Who is it? Dave? Dave’s not here, man... Who? Oh, David Waldman? Yeah, he and Greg Dworkin are over on the couch contemplating the ceiling and national politics: Who would have guessed that the US War on Drugs spawning generations of poverty, crime, and corruption throughout Latin America might eventually lead to problems for us? Joe Biden’s going to take our guns! Well, your homemade guns, and the ones you...

4/7/2021
Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman spent the night tracing the roots of his family tree until he slipped and fell down a genealogy rabbit hole. He discovered that similar names might go with dissimilar people, but sometimes that just doesn’t matter. David has wanted the Senate filibuster dead for years. Now that it’s either the filibuster or democracy, others are catching up. The Senate parliamentarian will let Democrats bypass the...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman handcrafts yet another small-batch KITM, lovingly prepared once daily in our World Headquarters’ kitchen. Joan McCarter joins us with an exquisite water ganache, and her usual political acumen. President Joe Biden keeps moving his own goalposts… And he’s still scoring! Now, all US adults will be eligible for the Covid vaccine on April 19. Saying Boris Johnson is “smarter than Trump” is like saying...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman wishes us all a happy Canadian Easter Monday, regardless of nationality or religion, except for Orthodox Christians, who have boiled their eggs way too soon. Greg Dworkin hauls in two rafts of stories, giving us a lot to talk about. Are we safe from the pandemic yet? No, but we are much safer. Will herd immunity stop the disease? No, but we in the herd will be much more secure. Yes, we still have...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! All fooled out? You’ve come to the right place, as David Waldman, and we at KITM, do not suffer fools gladly… Okay, perhaps with a little glee... The only letdown with the Matt PizzaGaetz scandal is that it’s not happening to Rand and Ted too. Other than that, GaetzGate has got everything — party drugs, naked women hula-hooping, online payments and solicitation, condoms by the gross… which means it still has a...

David Waldman and Greg Dworkin only have a couple of hours today, but a whole month to go: Let’s start with Ted Cruz of the panhandle, Matt Gaetz. Gaetz’ Mann act adds a few new players, including a former Department of Justice official, a presumed dead Iranian hostage, Andrew McCabe, William Barr… it’s enough to make your Tucker...

Maybe Wednesday brought them… Either way, it works out for us: It’s Infrastructure Week! For real! No big trucks for President Joe to go vroom-vroom in, but some actual plans. Republicans don’t plan to vote for any of it but do plan to take credit for all of it… and talk about transgender girls. Hey, have you been vaccinated yet? Anecdotes abound suggesting...

Hey, have you been vaccinated yet? President Joe Biden wants 90% of us eligible within 3 weeks, and the rest of us a month from now, so that we can all celebrate Get Closer to Normal Day, on July 4th! For the time being, cut out the crazy stuff! Do you want to doom us all? Speaking of, those folks who thought Covid was a...

Listen to David Waldman and Greg Dworkin on today’s KITM, then find yourself a volcano and a soccer ball and have ye a joyous Passover, arr! Giant container ship “Ever Given” finally made the long-awaited pivot to freedom, and scampered back into open water, leaving reporters misty-eyed on shore. We are still stuck with a COVID pandemic, though. Thanks to Joe, vaccines are pouring into millions of arms....

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman brings us the Friday KITM morning news, traffic on the 10’s: We still have that container ship jackknifed out on the Suez, blocking northbound… well, all transit. Authorities caution that honking horns will not help the situation, and advise patience as plans are implemented. Yesterday, President Joe Biden was asked if he was throwing his hat in the ring for the 2024 presidential election. Other...
