CLR Show 1555. Air Date May 17, 2021. Both the trumpian congress and Bebe Natanyahu are playing the same dangerous game: using fear and anger for immediate political ends (The House in 2022 for the trumpians) and assuming things will calm down––or at least become more manageable––once their ends have been achieved. It is a dangerous and grossly irresponsible game, and places the lives of billions at risk.
CLR Show 1554. Air date May 13, 2021. A second revealing interview with Adam Weissman and Yousuke Kinome, Co-producers of 'Manji', a film examining the true history of the swastika––and why recognizing the truth is essential to overcoming the tribalism that threatens the foundations of our democracy.

CLR Show 1553. Air Date May 12, 2021. Liz Cheney's 6-minute swan song before a republican-free House Chamber was the death-knell of the modern republican party and a formal indictment of trumpism. But she––and we––cannot, and will not, let our democracy die in a cesspool of fear and lies.
CLR Show 1552. Air Date May 10, 2021. As New York and the nation begin the long march toward normalcy, we need to recognize the things that must continue to change if we're to generate the hope and compassion needed for our survival as a species. Above all else, we must re-embrace our shared Universal Energy.
CLR Show 1551. Air Date May 7, 2021. In deference to their damaged demagogue, the Republicans have become willfully anti-strategic, even knowing the lessons of history and the probable consequences of their Constitution-defying words and deeds. We people of conscience must push back will all our strength.
CLR Show 1550. Air Date May 5, 2021. The great political irony of our time is that Republicans, facing the sweeping reforms and associated financial costs offered by Biden, could begin behaving like republicans and argue these proposals on their merits. But that might get in the way of their Donald-mandated grievance mongering.
CLR Show 1549. Air Date May 3, 2021. The political similarities between 1932 Germany and 2021 America are frightening. Even more frightening is the refusing of republicans to learn from history and their willingness to destroy the fundamentals of American democracy in an effort to appease an unstable, unappeasable demagogue.
CLR Show 1548. Air Date April 30, 2021. It would be nice to simply move on and forget Trump and trumpism ever happened. But that would be courting danger and a repetition of recent history. Markers must be laid down––starting, perhaps, with the indictment of Rudy Giuliani––and both current and future generations must be forewarned. With CLR Friday Co-Host, David Bach.
CLR Show 1546. Air Date April 26, 2021. A CLR Special Presentation. Co-producer Adam Weissman and Director Yousuke Kinome explore historical perceptions, and the critical need for education and tolerance in their new film, MANJI, an eye-opening journey into the truth behind the swastika and its present-day role in the lives of more than 2 billion people.
