Venezuela deserves our compassion…not our regime change machine – Ep 38

Read

Danny and I take the Fortress meat cleaver to the situation in Venezuela.  We discuss how humanitarian aid is not the offer Marco Rubio or anyone in US government says it is and how it’s been repeated historically in a multitude of countries.  We also discuss a recent settlement for a VA patient that smells significantly south of bullshit. Finally, we discuss the bravery and leadership shown by Senator Martha McSally as a survivor of sexual assault.
