Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter called in to today’s KITM via Skype. If you listened live, their voices had a strong “reverberation”, David Waldman’s did not. If you listen to today’s podcast you will not hear any echo on any voice. During the broadcast David did not hear any echo, Joan did, but Greg did not… but Armando did yesterday... Is there an audio/computer/streaming engineer in the house? Let us know which button to push!

Greg Dworkin rounds up the latest on Harvey and Houston. The worst is yet to come for the chronically ill or in need of any health assistance

We all pull together in times of crisis… OK, we used to. For the Gop any time is a good time to for tax cuts and cutting services. Donald Trump won’t allow Harvey to be like Obama’s Katrina and it won’t be, if hat sales are any guide. The same folks whatabouting Katrina really enjoy Donald’s personality and style. Republicans find themselves defending Trump’s stench, even as more of the stink rubs off on them. Still, more than a fifth of his support has smartened up.

Greg Gianforte body-slammed Ben Jacobs, promised him an interview, and is of course not planning on doing anything.

Joan McCarter informs us that the real test for Republican government starts next week. She expects them to fail. The disaster in Texas was predicted. Trump can also be predicted to attempt to route disaster relief to his wall. Here is a way to support victims of Hurricane Harvey$350K so far! 

Jim Mattis isn’t contradicting Trump on transgender policy, in fact he is implementing the order exactly as directed. Mattis might have to contradict us out of nuclear war.

Donald is still a little bit short of actually running a dictatorship. The legal challenge to the Arpaio pardon begins, and it looks as if Trump can’t pardon his way out of Russia trouble.
