  • Episode 625: Filibummer; Red Wave Coming?

    This week on Ring of Fire:

    Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema has killed any chance of filibuster reform, which means that the voting rights legislation that Democrats have worked so hard on this past year is essentially dead.

    Mike Figueredo, host of The Humanist Report on YouTube, will give us his thoughts on this year's midterm elections and whether there's anything the Democratic Party can do to prevent a Republican landslide.

    What you're missing on the Member Show: Attorney Chris Paulos will talk about the lawsuit that he and his firm have filed against Saudi Arabia for their role in a December 2019 terrorist attack in Pensacola, Florida. To hear this interview become a member over at www.rofpodcast.com

David is the author of the new book "Laboratories of Autocracy: A Wake Up Call From Behind the Lines."
