Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the U.S. and Donald Trump will be in the media even more than he is today (recent reports have him starting his own cable channel - we'll see). His supporters, emboldened but disorganized, will remain.
But where does that leave the rest of us? What should we expect from a Clinton presidency? And how will activists, particularly the millions who were mobilized for Sanders, respond?

On today's program, Vince recaps the second presidential "debate" in all its wonderful madness and banality. He also discuss the possibility of organizing Trump's supporters and why he thinks The Donald's campaign has been the best learning experience for Americans in over a century.
Plus, why are liberals, progressives and Democrats silent as Clinton escalates Cold War 2.0 with Russia? Scoring cheap political points while simultaneously provoking war - textbook American liberalism! Hillary must have learned a thing or two from JFK.

Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance sparked an important conversation and debate about nationalism and American Exceptionalism - an essential conversation more Americans should have. For this, he should be commended, not admonished.
As Albert Einstein once noted, "Nationalism is an infantile disease." Of course, the same is true today, yet I hear less and less progressive and leftwing activists say so. Why? Is nationalism the ultimate taboo in American political discourse?
When will a prominent American athlete draw attention to the millions of people of color the U.S. military has killed overseas in the name of American Exceptionalism and under the banner of the U.S. flag? That's the conversation no one wants to have.

Vince talks about his recent article for CounterPunch, why the U.S. lacks an antiwar movement and what antiwar activists could do in the future to be more effective. After ten years of working with antiwar movements around the globe, Vince has seen the many ways in which those movements limit their own productivity. Interestingly, antiwar movements ranging from Spain to Australia are facing similar difficulties.

Vince also previews the Neoliberal madness that will be unleashed in Philadelphia starting today and talks about Debbie Wasserman Schultz (the ultimate apologist for Israeli terrorism), the Democratic Party, why I'm not in Philly, Russia, Wikileaks, Christo-Fascist Mike Pence, and the naivety of Bernie Sanders supporters.
