Today’s show covers a lot of ground.

The Democratic primary is getting more woke by the minute, the media turns on former Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Roruke, Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez now says she was just joking about the whole “we only have 12 years to live thing,” and Chips Ahoy gets “super-woke” for Mother’s Day.

Listen to the show:

Just when you thought Democrats couldn’t get more insane, even the frontrunner is pandering to the “woke” crowd.

2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden came out in favor of illegal aliens qualifying for federal health care benefits because why not? If you’re going to give everyone free everything, why not include people with no business being in the country? And since the whole party is a hive-mind, fellow candidate Kamala Harris jumped on board, endorsing the idea on Sunday.

If a political party is working so hard to make life better for people who aren’t supposed to be here, what’s the point of being an American anymore? We get into it.

O’Rourke has gone from being a media darling to being its target. After building him up to be the great progressive hope, the media is now wondering what people see in him. Once his poll numbers slipped, and people actually listened to him speak, the left smelled blood in the water. He’s a historically unaccomplished nobody who hasn’t done anything, and now that he’s dropped in the polls, he’s no longer worth protecting.

But there are other reasons for the attacks, too. We explain.

Ocasio-Cortez, who scared children with the lie that humans only have 12 years left to save the planet from destruction, now says she was only joking. Oh, she still believes in the doom and gloom predictions she read on a blog, but not the timeline she made up.

It seems that the more that lie was risking being exposed, the bigger of a liability it had become for her. Now, she’s backing away from it. The problem is: There are millions of people who believed her, and thousands of school children so frightened by her words that they’re skipping school to protest because they believe there is no future. Where are their parents? Where are the responsible adults?

This death cult is getting out of control, but the votes of its members count just as much as anyone else’s. We expose it all.

And Chips Ahoy is the latest company to become “woke.” To mark Mother’s Day, the cookie company sent out a video of a drag queen talking about your “drag mom” and how you should buy her cookies. They may not be in the cookies, but they’re nuts.
