Trey and Ken begin the show by discussing Rep. Jayapal’s comments about Israel. Includes a discussion of President Isaac Herzog’s speech. There is a historical description of the modern state of Israel, along with a discussion of Palestine. Trey acknowledges the inequality, but sees it as the result of a historic battle for survival. Ken, while sympathetic, considers it apartheid.
Next is the end of the Sea Grains Initiative by Russia. Trey points out that this grain is headed mostly to Turkey and China, indicating a possible further rift between these aligned countries. Ken agrees and they both consider how this may have influenced last week’s NATO meeting.
After that, the couple discusses the Illinois Supreme Court ruling ending cash bail. The discussion covers both the legality of state law, but the guys also talk about bail policy in general. Ken suggests that in a world with crowdfunding, the surety has less meaning.
The guys then cover the recent topic on the Georgia congressional election map and speculate on what might happen given the recent supreme court case of Allen v Milligan (2023).
Trey and Ken close the show by discussing RFK’s testimony before Congress. Trey believes that RFK Jr represents a schism within the Democratic Party that has gone unnoticed due to the tension in the Trump-era GOP. Ken disagrees and sees RFK as a sleeper agent for the Republicans.
