The days of the American empire are numbered, says journalist Chris Hedges, and the evidence is all too clear for anyone who’s studied history. Our rampant militarism abroad combined with neglect of the domestic needs of any but the wealthiest citizens describe a grim future for the United States, he says. And if you think progressives in government might help us avoid that destiny, think again – The Squad and their ilk are merely controlled opposition designed to provide false hope for change. Jimmy and Americans’ comedian Kurt Metzger discuss with Hedges the calamity that elites have wrought in condemning the United States empire to the dustbin of history. Plus a segment on actor Sean Penn’s cringe-worthy fawning over Volodymyr Zelensky at the recent Golden Globes. Also featuring Aaron Maté, Kurt Metzger and Mike MacRae! And phone calls from Joe Biden and Vince Vaughn!
