32 – Nancy Pelosi, The Great Maintainer

Nancy Pelosi is the antithesis to the progressive wing of the Democratic party which is the true core of the party, she consistently works to undermine her own party and is one of the establishment’s core figures in American politics – her leadership is a hindrance to the Democratic Party, and in some ways to the country. She is excellent, great even at her ability to maintain the status quo.

31 – A Interview With Joe Sanchez, Former NYPD Officer

Tonight on the show – Joe Sanchez.

Joe Sanchez was born Jose Manuel Sanchez Picon on January 16, 1947 in Santurce, Puerto Rico. He is a former New York City police officer and author who published books about corruption within the New York City Police Department (NYPD). He is also a Vietnam combat wounded veteran.

Upon exposing the illegal acts committed by some high-ranking NYPD officers, he was arrested on the basis of false allegations which were highly publicized by the news media, then subsequently refuted. When his initial conviction for assault was overturned, his case exposed the existence of a code of silence among police officers known as the “Blue Wall of Silence”.

Welcome to the show, Joe.
