A Stern Rebuke For Melania's Birthday
Ever wondered what it's like to celebrate your wife'  birthday in a courtroom? Join us as we offer up a cheeky birthday salute to Melania Trump, only to pivot to the not-so-celebratory scene of her husband, Donald Trump, navigating his way through a thicket of thorny legal issues in court—on her special day, no less. The drama unfolds with Trump battling the chill of the courtroom (and perhaps the chill of the proceedings) and even allegedly catching  winks of sleep amidst the serious accusations. You'll be glued to your headphones as we discuss the curious absence of Melania and the Trump offspring from the courtroom gallery and dive into the murky waters of media manipulation and the seismic shifts in the Supreme Court that could reshape America's legal landscape.Shift into a softer gear with us as we explore the empathetic leadership style of President Joe Biden, sculpted from the raw clay of personal tragedy. Listen closely as we unravel how Biden's deep-seated experiences with loss breathe life into his presidential duties, particularly his handling of the pandemic, and how this contrasts starkly with Trump's more reserved acknowledgment of his own family's losses. We wrap up with a powerful interview featuring Howard Stern, where the conversation takes an unflinching look at the Supreme Court and indulges in a fantasy debate with Trump. It's a conversation that's as candid as it is critical, and one that offers insights into the very heart of America's political tug-of-war.Support the Show.Support the show:https://www.buzzsprout.com/2003879/supportFollow our show's hosts on Twitter: twitter.com/@CoolTXchicktwitter.com/@Caroldedwinetwitter.com/taradublinrockstwitter.com/blackknight10ktwitter.com/@pardonpodFind Tara's book here:Taradublinrocks.comFind Ty's book here:Consequence of ChoiceSubscribe to Tara's substack:taradublin.substack.comSubscribe to Ty's substack:https://theworldasiseeit.substack.com/ Support Our Sponsor: Sheets & GigglesEucalyptus Sheets (Recommended):Sleep Mask (I use this every night)Eucalyptus Comfortor...

SCOTUS Wants To Sign Their Own Death Warrant
Could the highest office in the United States be a shield for wrongdoing, granting the President carte blanche to act with impunity? Strap in as we navigate the tumultuous legal battles of Donald Trump, shedding light on the pressing questions of presidential immunity and accountability that have the nation on tenterhooks. David Pecker's bombshell revelations set the stage for a closer look at the alleged AMI-Trump campaign conspiracy, while the staggering $80 million judgment in the E. Jean Carroll defamation case underscores the gravity of the consequences at stake. In an episode that promises to dissect the audacity of Trump's defense before the Supreme Court, we grapple with the historical precedents cited and the unnerving hypotheticals of unchecked presidential power.Imagine a president orchestrating a military coup—is it a farfetched screenplay or a constitutional crisis waiting to happen? Our discussion cuts to the heart of this alarming scenario as we wrestle with the limits of impeachment and the specter of criminal responsibility for the Commander-in-Chief. As Justice Katonji Brown Jackson scrutinizes the theory of a president above the law, we probe the structural checks against abuses of power, balancing the potential chilling effects against the perils of unbridled presidential misconduct. The thorny debate over presidential self-pardon takes center stage, inviting a deep dive into the ramifications of such a power play within our democracy. Listen closely to this critical conversation, which not only deciphers the Justice Department's stance and historical precedents but also offers my take on why even presidents must steer clear of criminality.Support the Show.Support the show:https://www.buzzsprout.com/2003879/supportFollow our show's hosts on Twitter: twitter.com/@CoolTXchicktwitter.com/@Caroldedwinetwitter.com/taradublinrockstwitter.com/blackknight10ktwitter.com/@pardonpodFind Tara's book here:Taradublinrocks.comFind Ty's book here:Consequence of ChoiceSubscribe to Tara's substack:taradublin.substack.comSubscribe to Ty's substack:https://theworldasiseeit.substack.com/ Support Our Sponsor: Sheets & GigglesEucalyptus Sheets (Recommended):Sleep Mask (I use this every night)Eucalyptus Comfortor...

The Godfarter
When the gavel strikes and the media circus begins, can we discern justice from performance? Strap in for a rollercoaster ride through the latest courtroom dramas, political showdowns, and the sobering realities they overshadow. Our episode peels back the curtain on a high-profile trial's jury selection mayhem, its surrounding media frenzy, and the somber lesson from a heart-wrenching act of self-immolation right at the courthouse steps. We don't just stop at the hard-hitting; a sprinkle of humor awaits as I recount the oddball courtroom escapades of Donald Trump himself, proving that reality can be stranger than fiction.Amidst the chuckles, we zoom out to the wider scene of Republican Party infighting, the startling resignation of Kansas Representative Jake LaTurner, and the ripples sent through the political pond by Mike Johnson's aid approval to Ukraine and Marjorie Taylor Greene's opportunistic power grab. As the circus tent sways with the winds of change, we also acknowledge an uncomfortable truth: the relentless news cycle is a beast that devours today's headlines, leaving yesterday's stories in the dust. Our episode serves as both a time capsule and a wake-up call, spotlighting the stories that shape our world and the ones at risk of being forgotten.Support the Show.Support the show:https://www.buzzsprout.com/2003879/supportFollow our show's hosts on Twitter: twitter.com/@CoolTXchicktwitter.com/@Caroldedwinetwitter.com/taradublinrockstwitter.com/blackknight10ktwitter.com/@pardonpodFind Tara's book here:Taradublinrocks.comFind Ty's book here:Consequence of ChoiceSubscribe to Tara's substack:taradublin.substack.comSubscribe to Ty's substack:https://theworldasiseeit.substack.com/ Support Our Sponsor: Sheets & GigglesEucalyptus Sheets (Recommended):Sleep Mask (I use this every night)Eucalyptus Comfortor...
