Driftglass has been banned, yes, banned, from Twitter (@twittersafety). We're working on that. We cover the inauguration and how media types are all returning to square one.

HBO's 2020 series "The Outsider" meets the cult classics the 1972 made-for-TV movie/pilot for "The Night Stalker" and the 1958 Steve McQueen debut "The Blob." These science fiction stories are connected by a truth-knower untrusted by the authorities. Those authorities are the "system" designed to protect society from danger and crime. And there is …

The MAGA Sedition Riots prove the Republican base is made up of bigots, imbeciles, and yes, violent terrorists. Comparing Trump to Hitler isn't all bad! Driftglass watches Laura Ingraham and connects Albert Einstein's Cosmologicial Constant to today's media landscape. (Recorded before Trump's twitter account was permanently suspended.)

Just because Steve Schmidt registered as a Democrat (Welcome to the party, pal!) does NOT make him a "Centrist."

A long-running theme of our podcast is that mainstream media continually frames the debate from a Republican perspective. During the recording of this podcast, Driftglass noticed that his muted TV was airing a Bulwark/Never Trump/Republican on MSNBC. There you go. More at http://ProLeftPod.com!

Republicans are DEFINITELY in disarray. But you wouldn't know it from the praise Trump got for not pooping on the debate floor.
