Sunday Blues Podcast
About This Show
Sunday Blues is a progressive political podcast which aims to provide relatable, unfiltered news commentary from the perspective of an everyday married couple with degrees in History and Sociology. We noticed that while we and those around us were passionately discussing things like getting money out of politics, fighting police brutality, and promoting clean energy, the mainstream media only seemed concerned with political sideshows, personality wars, and ultimately their corporate sponsors. In light of this information vacuum, we decided to record our weekly conversations and share them with the public.

Obama Fails to Defend Peaceful Water Protectors From Militarized Police
In an interview with Now This earlier this month, Obama took a very weak stance on the Dakota Access Pipeline fight. He failed to acknowledge that peaceful protestors were being brutally suppressed with rubber bullets, mace, dogs, sound cannons and illegal arrests. His lukewarm stance on this blatant violation of free speech and the constitutional right to protest is allowing the situation to escalate. Obama could call in the National Guard to ensure the safety of these peaceful protesters, but instead he said he will "let it play out for a few more weeks". Now he appears to be deferring the issue to President Elect Trump, who received campaign donations from Energy Transfer CEO Kelcy Warren and is personally invested in the pipeline company.
