S2E7 Immigrant, migrants and the political exploitation of a serious challenge to America

09-14-23 Immigrant, migrants and the political exploitation of a serious challenge to America S2E7

Former Congressman Bill Lipinski and columnist Ray Hanania address the challenges of a failed immigration system and the growing problems of undocumented, illegal and migrant people who come into the country illegally.

The Rule of Law is the foundation of American Democracy and without it, our Democracy collapses. But the Far Left and the Far Right are exploiting the issues for their own political benefits. The Center Right, however, believes that the immigration system must be repaire dbecause America is a nation of immigrants, but immigrants who entered this country legally.

Today's policies that open the door to illegal immigrants and migrants without imposing requirements to be American first -- to learn the language, to be vetted for problems and criminal backgrounds, and to have a financial support foundation that doesn't put the entire burden on taxpayers to pay for the costs of illegals and migrants to enjoy the benefits of this country without workign to earn it is a mistake that is undermining the American way of life, which was created by Immigrants.

8-17-23 Attorney Odelson analyzes four Trump indictments S2E4

An analysis and explanation of the four Trump indictments with guest Attorney Burton S. Odelson Two Guys on Politics S2 E4 (corrected Audio file) August 17, 2023 Two Guys on Politics hosts discuss the four indictments against former President Donald Trump with an election law specialist who was involved in the voter fraud allegations made during the Al Gore-George Bush Presidential election in November 2000. Former Congressman Bill Lipinski and columnist Ray Hanania talk with attorney Burt Odelson on the substance and significance of each of the four indictments. Burt Odelson is the founding partner of the law firm Odelson, Murphey, Frazier & McGrath, Ltd. which he started the firm in 1972. Odelson has since earned a reputation as a leading expert in governmental and election law. Burt attended Richard J. Daley College, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and received his Juris Doctorate from IIT Chicago-Kent Law School. Synopsis of the four indictments according to the New York Times: Indictment 1: Book Keeping Fraud Mr. Trump has been charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to a series of Trump Organization checks he signed in 2017 to his personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen. The payments were to reimburse Mr. Cohen for a hush money payoff he had made in October 2016 to a porn actress, Stormy Daniels, to cover up a potential sex scandal just before the election. But, according to the indictment, internal documents falsely recorded the checks as payments for legal work Mr. Cohen had purportedly performed in 2017 under a retainer that did not exist. Indictment: March 2023 Scheduled trial: March 2024

Indictment 2: National Security Documents Charges: Mr. Trump has been charged with 40 criminal counts related to accusations that he hoarded sensitive government records after leaving office and conspired to obstruct government efforts to retrieve them, including by defying a subpoena. Two of his employees, Walt Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira, face charges related to conspiring to obstruct the investigation and of making false statements. Indictment: June 2023, expanded July 2023 Scheduled trial: May 2024 Indictment 3: Jan. 6/Election subversion National Mr. Trump has been charged with four criminal counts related to accusations that he sought to subvert American democracy by trying to overturn his 2020 election loss to Joseph R. Biden Jr. The indictment charges him with one count each of conspiring to defraud the government and to disenfranchise voters, and two counts related to corruptly obstructing an official proceeding — the Jan. 6, 2021, joint session of Congress to count and certify Mr. Biden’s Electoral College victory. Indictment: August 2023 Indictment 4: Fulton County Indictments / Georgia Election subversion Mr. Trump is charged with 13 criminal counts related to accusations that he illegally sought to subvert his narrow loss to Mr. Biden in Georgia. The charges include racketeering, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, filing a false document, and conspiracies to commit impersonation of a public officer, make false statements, file false documents and commit forgery. Eighteen of Mr. Trump’s associates and allies also face various charges. Indictment: August 2023 Scheduled trial: Not yet set. Charges are based on Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act Statues RICO ... broad accusations ... ... makes it easier to go after organized criminal enterprises and can be used against members of any group that engaged in a pattern of criminal activities with a common purpose.

09-10-23 TGOP Criminal and immigrant rights Biden and Iran S2E3

09-10-23 TGOP Criminal and immigrant rights Biden and Iran S2E3 Former Congressman Bill Lipinski and columnist Ray Hanania discuss a range of topics including: 1 - Do American Citizens have the right to defend themselves in their homes and businesses when they are attacked by criminals … two store owners were attacked and beat a robber and the state considered filing charges against them, but decided not to. 2 - How far is America willing to go to give freedoms and citizenship-like benefits to illegal aliens without vetting those immigrants or forcing them to know our history, speak our language and make their new Americanism a higher priority than their ancestry. Illinois law Amends the Illinois Municipal Code. Provides that an individual who is not a citizen but is legally authorized to work in the United States under federal law is authorized to apply for the position of police officer, subject to all requirements and limitations, other than citizenship, to which other applicants are subject. Effective January 1, 2024. 3 - Biden-Iran deal to releases $6 billion in funds (through a manager like Qatar) to Iran in exchange for releasing 6 Americans held hostage in Iran … is that a good deal?

Two Guys on Politics: discuss the FTX Bitcoin collapse, Chicago Elections and who will be the GOP candidate for President, with tributes to JFK and Tim Degnan

S2 E44, 11-22-22 Tuesday

In a live broadcast on Facebook, former Congressman Bill Lipinski, Brian Broeking and former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania will discuss FTX Bitcoin collapse, Chicago Elections and who will be the GOP candidate for President.

Topics include a discussion about the collapse of FTX Bitcoin, comparisons to Bernie Madoff and the impact the collapse of the $4 billion FTX fund will have on the challenges of making bitcoin cyber currency mainstream.

(29 MINUTE MARK)

Also discussed is the upcoming Chicago Mayor to unseat failed Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Praise for Ald. Raymond Lopez for putting Chicago first above his own self-interests, to make Chicago a better city, compared to Congressman Jesus "Chuy" Garcia who has entered the race in what critics believe is a self-promotion opportunity to help himself rather than the city. With Lopez leaving the race, some of the leading candidates include Dr. Willie Wilson and Paul Vallas. Wilson has the money but needs a stronger campaign team focus, while Vallas has the brains and ideas but lacks the campaign skills to move voter.

(42 MINUTE MARK)

Remembering the JFK assassination and the memories of that traumatic, 59 years ago today.

(45 MINUTE MARK)

And there is a discussion about who will run for President on the Republican side. Will there be a substantive challenge to former President Donald Trump. Mike Pence, the former Vice President, is a weak contender. And what about the Democratic side, who will win.

(52 MINUTE MARK)

The discuss turns briefly to the Ukraine War and the errant missile that struck Poland with all agreeing that regardless of where the missile came from, Russia and Vladimir Putin are responsible for all the death and destruction.

(101:50 MINUTE MARK)

The show ends with a tribute to Tim Degnan, the former Chicago Streets and Sanitation commissioner who rose to be one of former Richard M. Daley's most trusted and brilliant advisors. Degnan passed away this week.

S2 E33, 09-03-22 Thursday

In a live broadcast on Facebook, former Congressman Bill Lipinski and former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania, and producer Brian Broeking, discuss Biden's attacks against Republicans in his recent speech tot he nation.

Biden's first two years are similar to Regan's last two years in office, except Biden doesn't have Nancy Reagan or a competent staff to organize his administration for him.

S2 E7.2, 02-17-22

In a live broadcast on Facebook, former Congressman Bill Lipinski and former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania discuss the continuing collapse of the Republican Party in Illinois. We look at the history of how Pat Quinn, founder of the Coalition for Political Honesty, began the process of destroying the Two Party system in Illinois in 1980 and ending accountability by giving one political party the power to control the state. We also look at the failure of Republicans to speak to the issues facing the public in Illinois, especially around Chicago and Cook County. And we look at one crucial battle in Cook County between Cook County Commissioner Sean Morrison, a GOP extremist, in the 17th District who is facing a challenge from centrist Republican stalwart Liz Gorman, who held the seat before appointing Morrison to the seat. Morrison barely won re-election four years ago holding on the the seat with only 1,377 votes over an unknown Democratic challenger. If Morrison wins the Republican Party nomination on June 28, 2022, the Republicans will lose the seat to a Democratic challenger in November 2022.

S2 E7.1, 02-17-22

In a live broadcast on Facebook, former Congressman Bill Lipinski and former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania discuss the continuing Ukraine crisis asking if there is a tie between the crisis in Ukraine with Putin and Russian and President Biden and his son and brothers multimillion dealings with Ukraine and Russian businesses. We also look at Hunter Biden's portrayal in the Miranda Devine book, "Laptop from Hell". The Ukraine crisis has given Biden an opportunity to district the public away from two of his worst failures, the withdrawal from Afghanistan and his inability to pass the Build Back Better economic recovery plan. It might even help him reduce the expected wins of the Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections.
