Ep. 49 – Devil’s Triangle

Ep. 49 - Devil's Triangle

This week, we try a few alternate definitions for ‘Devil’s Triangle,’ take down Brett ‘On The Merits,’ and enter the Midterms Home Stretch.




Issues of the week: 

Last week’s hearings show that Brett Kavanaugh is a liar, believes in conspiracy theories, is a partisan hack, lacks the temperament to be on the bench, really really likes beer, and committed sexual assault.  He is not fit to serve on any court, let alone the Supreme Court. 

Calls to congress 

  1. Script to Stop Kavanaugh: My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and I and live in ZIP code [number]. I’m calling to ask Senator XX to do all he/she can to stop Brett Kavanaugh from getting on the Supreme Court.  Last week’s hearing showed that he doesn’t have the temperament, he is a liar, and he committed sexual assault.  We also need a full FBI investigation with nothing off limits.  Thank you. 
  2. Script to stop attacks on immigrants: “My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and I and live in ZIP code [number]. I am calling because I am deeply concerned that families are still separated and now kid are being moved in the middle of the night to a for profit tent city in Texas which has little to no regulations.  I ask that the Senator/Rep to 1) work to pass the REUNITE Act 2) hold hearings on what is happening at the border and Puerto Rico and 3) make sure no tax payer money goes to fund a wall. Thank you.”
