Political Analyst Michael Edelman, Esq., speaks to issues that resonate on the national and international political landscape from 10:30-11am.
- The Senate Impeachment effort of President Donald Trump was expected to be maintain along party affiliation. Senator Mitt Romney however unexpectedly broke ranks with the Senate Republican majority by voting to remove POTUS from office. Romney is the first in any impeachment trial of a president to deny support of that president by a fellow party members. Will the failed bi-partisan effort to impeach Pres. Trump diminish the president’s prospects? Will Romney suffer retribution at the hand of POTUS as has Lt. Colonel Alex Vindman.
- The U.S. Congress voted on Friday to approve an aid bill in support of Puerto Rico in light of the recent aftereffects of earthquakes. HR 5687 was introduced by Congresswoman Nita Lowey and given passionate expression by fellow Representative Nydia Velázquez, who is Puerto Rican. 160 Republican and one Independent voted no, whereas 17 Republicans voted in alliance with the Democrats. The legislative aid package failed to gain Congressional approval. What are the ramifications for such conduct? Is this conduct appropriate in light of the alleged and proven corruption by Puerto Rican Governor Wanda Vázquez Garced?
- Vice President Joe Biden seemed much more lucid than in prior debates, Senator Amy Klobuchar was ascendant, Senator Bernie Sanders unscathed, Senator Elizabeth Warren kept slipping, Mayor Pete Buttigieg was under attack and remained constructively ambiguous of his positions, Entrepreneur Andrew Yang could not move beyond the guaranteed annual income concept, and Hedge Fund Manager Tom Steyer was adamant that the number one concern was to defeat President Trump. Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the 800-lb gorilla that was in the wings and gaining in polling results momentum. What is the the New Hampshire debate takeaway from this past Friday?
- Pres, Trump dismissed Lt. Colonel Alex Vindman from his post on the National Security Council. Purple Heart recipient Vindman was the top expect on Ukraine. Vindman informed Congress of the July 25, 2019, telephone conversation during which POTUS engaged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to gather information about Joe Biden and his son, Hunter before he would release funding approved to assist Ukraine in their struggle against Russian support of dissidents in Ukraine’s eastern provinces.

Brent D. Glass, Interim Executive Director of the Sing Sing Prison Museum and Director Emeritus of Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History attends the broadcast speaking to the complex and compelling story of 200 years of incarceration in America. The Sing Sing Prison Museum (SSPM) has received more than $1 million plus in non-state grants to build a major cultural facility in Ossining, New York. Grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities support its plans to build a major cultural facility in Ossining, New York. The project is expected to be completed in 2025. It comes about as society has become reflective, informed, and inspired in righting a failed criminal justice system. The timing is perfect as society is immersed introspectively of the past and finds itself in a somewhat informed but still nascent state of reimagining the criminal justice system. We learn how the SSPM endeavor can lead to a more effective and enlightened amelioration of failed system. Listen from 11-11:30am.
