I get annoyed when he talks about the investigation. I think his wheelhouse is the progressive vs third way struggle in the D party and i really appreciated this video. :thumbup:

Yeah, I know what you mean.  I think sometimes Jimmy gets hung up on it a little more than he should let on, but he's also been trashed pretty hard for it by the same TYT/left base that used to love him.  

She seemed really disingenuous in that 2016 interview.  Remember this, I'm sure we're fixing to see a lot more of her.  It says a lot about the little "persist" rally she had with Elizabeth Warren, and it says a lot about what their idea of what 'progressive' and 'unity' means.

Jimmy Dore sucks. You should be watching Sam Seder. And if you don't know Chapo Trap House, fix that.

Chapo is the real.

 

Jimmy Dore fans - how are you with his pizzagate and seth richghazi!!!!! curiosity? He never had the balls to go out and support them, but he toyed around with the ideas and played coy. I know being a fan of someone doesn't mean you have to like everything the person says, but I'd like to know where you guys stand on those.

Unfortunately I only found JD about a month or 2 after the election 2 years ago. I'll have to take a look at what he said about all that stuff at the time.

2 years since I've known him I think his stuff has been incredibly solid. 2 years makes a big difference and I'm sure he was just getting his own channel started up cause I know around then he was still with TYTs. Maybe he was just looking for early subs and views for his new channel. Idk. Irresponsible? Sure. But I don't see much of that today, and I'm willing to forgive some errors in judgement from a few years ago so long as he's kept on the straight and narrow.

Again tho, I'll have to take a look at those videos.

You really should listen to Sam Seder.  He's unrepentant trash as a political commentator, but his work as Hugo on Bob's Burgers is can't-miss stuff.  

I think Jimmy's popularity (and subsequent character assassination by huge outlets like cnn/wapo) has kind of worn on him.  I don't think Dore should be viewed as an analyst so much as a political comedian, which is where he really excels.  But I enjoy his videos and try to catch up every few weeks.

Crazy - if there's one issue that could ever get me to move outside the US it would be gun control.  Forgive me for not wanting to be shot and killed by a crazy person.

I listen a bit to Seder. I really am not always impressed. I actually really like the other guy better but his name escapes me, Michael something.

I still like Dore but again I don't agree with every position. If you find yourself never disagreeing with someone you listen to you need to check yourself you're in the bubble.

Never cared for Bernie Sanders or progressive (economic) politics in general, although I do think it represents a better alternative than this corporate oligarchy we have now.  But I understand how the parties treat outsider candidates like Ron Paul and Bernie so I've always related to that.  I also agree with him almost entirely on foreign policy, political corruption in both parties, and the root cause of Trump.  

I think Seder believes in the stuff he says.  His video about Oprah's Iraq war propaganda was excellent, for example.  But when push comes to shove I think he's the type to fall in line with the establishment.  Plus the Russia stuff is an embarrassment and anyone who helped push this load of trash should be stripped of all credibility.  I do like the other guy on Majority Report too. 

I respect that Jimmy sticks to his convictions, even if he is a bit flawed as the messenger.

We have actually had many discussions where we disagreed over the years. Respectfully of course.
