About The Jimmy Dore Show
MSNBC host Jen Psaki recently aired a segment that used deceptively edited video of Donald Trump to suggest that the former president was already planning to pursue his political enemies if he wins back the presidency in 2024. Except everything she accuses Trump of planning the Biden administration is currently doing. Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the parade of lies and distortions coming out of Jen Psaki. Plus segments on Biden losing ground to Trump in polls of young voters, MSNBC host Ali Velshi explaining how democracy is bad for democracy and actor Michael Rapaport admitting that he may vote for Trump instead of Biden.
At the recent pro-Israel rally in Washington DC, House Speaker Mike Johnson described as “outrageous” any calls for a ceasefire in Gaza — despite the fact that a solid majority of Americans support a ceasefire. Instead Johnson, along with other politicians on stage with him like Jody Ernst and Hakeem Jeffries, insisted that the killings, the massacres, the genocide continue unabated. Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger talk to System Update host Glenn Greenwald about the consensus in both parties that many more civilians in Gaza must die. Plus a segment on the $450 billion of liquefied natural gas off the coast of Gaza that's likely the REAL reason Israel is seeking to clear Palestinians out. Also featuring Mike MacRae and Stef Zamorano! And phone calls from Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders!
MMA fighter Jake Shields and political commentator Jackson Hinkle have both found themselves running afoul of the censors at Twitter, who have demonetized the two over their posted messages about the conflict in Gaza. Shields has learned, in fact, that he was “ghost banned” following a meeting of Twitter executives during which they discussed ways to reduce both Shields and Hinkle’s prominence on the site. Jimmy and his co-hosting duo of The Convo Couch’s Craig Jardula and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger talk to Hinkle and Shields about why Elon Musk’s free speech platform would seek to block Twitter users from hearing their perspectives. Plus a segment on author and activist Norman Finkelstein's scathing takedown of an apologist for Israeli atrocities. Also featuring Mike MacRae and Stef Zamorano! And phone calls from Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer!
Former US president Donald Trump opened his speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s conference by declaring, “I love Israel. I love Israel.” He then went on to state that if he’s elected president again he will pursue “vengeance” against Hamas in response to the group’s October 7 attacks inside Israel. Jimmy, along with The Convo Couch host Craig Jardula and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger, discusses how Trump is declaring himself as much of a bloodthirsty warmonger marching us into a global conflict as his fellow Republican candidates or Joe Biden. Plus a segment on CNN's Wolf Blitzer, a reliably pro-Israel cheerleader for war, questioning the Israeli military's cavalier approach to civilian casualties. Also featuring Mike MacRae and Stef Zamorano! And phone calls from Joe Biden and Andrew Cuomo!
In recent years certain high profile avatars of the right have begun self-identifying as “free speech warriors,” opposing efforts to deny campus speaking opportunities to other right-wingers, calling out social media platforms for banning controversial accounts and raling against so-called “cancel culture.” But in light of the recent Hamas attacks, Gaza bombardment and subsequent protests in favor of Palestinian rights, previous free speech absolutists like Ben Shapiro, Dave Rubin and Laura Loomer are calling for the cancelling of individuals whose speech they disagree with. Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss, yet again, how supporting free speech means supporting the rights of people whose speech you abhor. Plus segments on why the Israeli military is upset about hostages being released and Jon Stewart abandoning his Apple TV show over alleged disagreements over content with Apple executives. Also featuring Mike MacRae and Stef Zamorano! And phone calls from Joe Biden and Vince Vaughn!
Though most Israeli politicians and leaders have the political savvy not to say it in public, few would question that Israel’s ultimate objective is to drive Palestinians out of the West Bank and Gaza, leaving all of Israel just to Israelis. Does anyone sincerely believe that if Egypt welcomed Gazans through the Rafah crossing that they would ever be allowed back? Guest host Craig Jardula and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger talk to independent journalist and filmmaker Dan Cohen about the open secret of Palestinian expulsion. Plus a segment on Americans' woeful ignorance of basic information about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Also featuring Mike MacRae and Stef Zamorano! And phone calls from Mitt Romney and Alec Baldwin!
Reports describing the violence during the recent assault by Hamas fighters on Israel have been nothing short of shocking. Also shocking, however, has been the treatment of Palestinians for more than half a century by Israeli occupiers. Guest host Craig Jardula and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger talk to professor and author Norman Finkelstein about the failure of Palestinian efforts at nonviolent protest and the nearly non-existent options available to Gazans under blockade. Plus a segment on the Israeli government's plans to deprive Gaza's 1 million children of basic essentials like food, water and medicine. Also featuring Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Joe Biden, Volodymyr Zelensky and Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as Andrew Cuomo and David Axelrod!
Well, he did it. As threatened, GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz has called to “vacate” the Speaker’s chair and successfully ousted Kevin McCarthy. Establishment defenders on both sides of the political spectrum are decrying the move and the “chaos” that has overtaken the GOP House caucus. Meanwhile, leftists who supported the #ForceTheVote movement are throwing up their hands and wondering why The Squad never wielded their power in similar fashion against the House Democratic leadership. Jimmy and guests Craig Jardula and Kurt Metzger discuss Gaetz’s willingness to embrace the wrath of his own's party's establishment. Plus a segment on the sheer inability of Russiagating Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers Bill Maher and Sam Harris to confront their own demonstrably wrong positions. Also featuring Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Joe Biden and George Clooney!
On Tuesday the United Nations Security Council welcomed a very surprising speaker — comedian and political commentator Jimmy Dore! Jimmy explained about how the United States was behind the Nord Stream bombing and the western media all fell in line to push the lie that Russia or Ukraine or someone else was responsible. Guest host Craig “Pasta” Jardula and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss Jimmy’s UN appearance and journalist Seymour Hersh’s startling revelation that the Nord Stream bombing wasn’t actually about the Ukraine War at all. Plus a segment on the inexplicable standing ovation offered by the entire Canadian Parliament to a 98-year-old former Ukrainian Nazi soldier Also featuring Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Chuck Schumer and Jake Tapper!
Back when he was a hard-partying movie star, Russell Brand was the darling of the mainstream media. But ever since the British comedian started turning hard against the establishment, exposing the mainstream narrative on COVID, the Ukraine War and empire, the knives have been out for him. And now we know how they plan to get him, with a series of questionable rape allegations emerging from anonymous sources in his distant past. Guest host Craig “Pasta” Jardula and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss why the establishment would have determined that Brand had to be disappeared from the discourse. Plus a segment on actor Sean Penn's insane push toward the brink of World War III over Ukraine. Also featuring Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Mitt Romney and Vince Vaughn!
Bad Faith Podcast host Briahna Joy Gray recently sat down with Breaking Points host Krystal Ball and her husband to discuss the question that has been roiling the online left for a decade or longer — are Democrats really any better than Republicans? Gray refused to concede that the Biden administration’s alleged “accomplishments” require that leftists vote for him as a means of stopping Donald Trump. Guest host Craig “Pasta” Jardula and The Miserable Liberal Stef Zamorano discuss Kyle and Krystal’s heel turn to MSNBC Lite. Plus a segment hosted by Jimmy with Craig "Pasta" Jardula and Americans' Comedian Kurt Metzger talking about California Governor Gavin Newsom's recent admission that he got COVID all wrong. Also featuring Mike MacRae! And phone calls from President Biden and Al Pacino!
If Dr. Cornel West hopes for his Green Party presidential bid to take off, he’s going to have to appeal to a wide swath of the voting public, including disaffected Democrats and Republicans, as well as independents. Whether he can achieve that objective by constantly beating the drums for trans rights and about white supremacy was a key bone of contention during his recent interview with Jimmy Dore. Jimmy argued in favor of an electoral strategy based on a solid foundation of economic justice while Dr. West said he would never stop talking about white supremacy and trans rights. Plus a segment with Craig "Pasta" Jardula and Americans' Comedian Kurt Metzger on the Washington Post admitting that Joe Biden is a serial liar. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And a phone call from President Biden and Barack Obama!
Independent media outlet The Grayzone recently conducted a fundraiser on GoFundMe to help support the publication’s investigative journalism team. But after collecting more than $90,000, The Grayzone publisher Max Blumenthal received an email telling him that for reasons that remained obscure, the funds would not be disbursed. Jimmy and Max discuss this effort to stifle independent journalism and the similar experience faced by the Canadian trucker protesters and African journalist Simon Ateba. Plus a segment with Craig "Pasta" Jardula on retired British nurse instructor and YouTuber's investigation into the revolving door between industry and government. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Chuck Schumer and Andrew Cuomo!
The devastating fires in Maui will require billions in funds to facilitate the island’s recovery. And while Congress is currently negotiating relief funds for Hawaii, there’s also the pressing need for additional billions in military spending to Ukraine. Which is why the debate over sending money to Hawaii is being tied to twice as much money being sent to Ukraine. Guest host Craig “Pasta” Jardula, along with Jimmy Dore and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss reports that FEMA is running out of money just when Hawaii is in desperate need. Plus segments on the U.S.'s involvement in the recent ouster of Pakistani leader Imran Khan and Alex Jones' prediction about the imminent return of COVID restrictions. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Joe Biden and Liam Neeson!
Now that the pharmaceutical industry has made its hundreds of billions from vaccines, and despite an all out smear campaign the agency itself participated in, the Food & Drug Administration has approved the drug Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID. So it turns out that, according to the FDA, it’s OK even if you’re not a horse for you to take Ivermectin to treat your COVID. That’s what you call a win-whinny. Guest host Craig “Pasta” Jardula, along with Jimmy Dore and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss why Ivermectin had to be so severely demonized during the early days of the pandemic but now can be approved in such a cavalier fashion. Plus a segment on all the terrible jokes late night night comedians made about taking Ivermectin, which has now been approved by the FDA to treat COVID. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And a phone call from Alec Baldwin!
Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner Devon Archer recently testified to Congress behind closed doors about international deals he and Hunter were involved in and whether Joe Biden had any participation. Even though the mainstream media is spinning the testimony as exonerating the President, the reality is that Hunter was clearly trading on his father’s name and that Joe actively involved himself in his son’s business. Jimmy and The Convo Couch host Craig Jardula discuss the weight of evidence suggesting President Biden helped and benefited from his son’s influence peddling schemes. Plus segments about a new poll showing a majority of Americans no longer support Ukraine War funding and out-of-touch elitist Joy Behar wondering why Joe Biden isn't more popular. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Andrew Cuomo and Joe Biden!
Donald Trump has been indicted yet again, and this time it’s not about secret payments to a porn star or mishandling of classified documents. No, this indictment is over Trump’s alleged involvement in fomenting the January 6 “insurrection” and other various efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the indictment and whether the various legal campaigns against Trump are collectively oriented at ensuring he can’t run again in 2024. Plus a segment with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. talking about what's REALLY destroying the middle class in America. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And a phone call from Vince Vaughn!
There’s much debate on the left as to how much better, if at all, Democrats are compared with Republicans. Kyle Kulinski’s not engaging with that debate, however, as he forcefully recently asserted that black people tend to vote blue because Democrats are “one trillion times better” than Republicans. Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger talk to Revolutionary Blackout Network’s Nick Cruse about Kulinski’s assessment and why he may be overstating the case by a factor of a trillion. Plus a segment on Houston Police ongoing harassment of volunteer workers feeding the homeless. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And a phone call from George Clooney!
Green Party presidential candidate Cornel West recent appeared on Anderson Cooper’s CNN show and the two sparred over the Ukraine War. Specifically, Cooper rejected Dr. West’s comparison of the United States’ invasion of Iraq to what Russia has done in Ukraine and did in Chechnya. Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss West’s handling of Anderson Cooper and whether Cornel is ready for prime time. Plus a segment on The Intercept's Ryan Grim's manipulative efforts to discourage third party voters. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And a phone call from Chuck Schumer!
Reason, the magazine directed at libertarians, recently published a video titled “Why Are So Many Libertarians Suddenly Fond of RFK Jr.?” In the video Reason contributor Liz Wolfe wildly smears RFK Jr. as – predictably enough – anti-vaxx while insisting the Democratic presidential candidate is wrong about wanting to protect Social Security and Medicare and take on the oligarchy and the deep state. As Jimmy points out, Wolfe repeatedly uses misleadingly edited videos, announces RFK is wrong without citing how or why and generally doesn’t seem to understand libertarianism, not to mention how to make a cogent, coherent argument. Plus a segment on the blatant duplicity Biden and Democrats are engaging in to try to persuade young people to vote for Democrats over a student debt relief plan they have no intention of following through on. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Mike MacRae! And phone calls from President Joe Biden and Jake Tapper!
