  • Episode 711: Senate Dress Code Causes Stir; Boebert's Hypocrasy Caught on Tape; Impeaching Biden?

    This week on Ring of Fire!

    Republicans are having an absolute meltdown over the new, more relaxed dress code in the Senate, and Democratic Senator John Fetterman is having the time of his life trolling these prudes on social media.

    Lauren Boebert is still dealing with the fallout after she was caught "reaching across the aisle" at a recent theater performance. Could this act be the final nail in her political coffin?

    Republicans are pushing for cuts to Social Security, Medicaid, and SNAP benefits as they push the federal government towards a shutdown.

    The first impeachment inquiry hearing is set to take place next week, just as new evidence emerges showing that Republicans have absolutely no reason to be going down this path.

    And Donald Trump's legal problems in the documents case might have become too much for him to overcome thanks to new witness testimony.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene is once again suggesting that states should secede from the Union, and she could find herself facing a 14th Amendment challenge for her rhetoric.

    Donald Trump's economic plans for a second term will decimate the working class while he gives himself and the rest of the wealthy elite another major tax break - we'll bring the details.

    And Trump's legal problems don't seem to be getting any better as he and his lawyers keep angering the judges and prosecutors.

    All that - and much, much more - coming up on this week's Ring of Fire!

    What's happening with Mitch McConnell's health?

    Why is the media ignoring Biden's accomplishments?

    Could RFK, Jr. wreck Republicans in 2024?

    What happens if Trump doesn't go to prison?

  • Episode 708: Trump Went Down to Georgia; Mugshot Mania; Biden's Scores Big

    This week on Ring of Fire!

    Donald Trump is facing a March 4th trial date for the federal charges against him for trying to overturn the election, and his Republican allies in Congress are trying everything they can to prevent the DOJ from being able to prosecute him.

    The New York state lawsuit against Donald Trump and his sons took an interesting turn this week after the transcripts of Trump's deposition were made public - we'll explain the significance of what he said.

    Republicans are suffering from a serious case of impeachment fever, but no matter the outcome of the impending inquiry, Republicans will be the ones who lose.

    And President Biden scored a major victory for workers this week by proposing a rule that would give substantial raises to roughly 4 million Americans.

    All that, and much more, on this week's Ring of Fire!

  • Episode 707: Republican Debate Primer with Farron

    This week on Ring of Fire!

    We're doing a PRE-Debate rundown, letting you know what you can expect to hear - and expect NOT to hear - at the first Republican primary debate, as well as what is at stake for some of the top candidates.

    Also, Donald Trump's decision to skip the debate might have less to do with his feelings of superiority and more to do with his lawyers' fears that he'll further incriminate himself.

    That's all coming up on this week's Ring of Fire!
