We discuss/scream about American Imperialism, who supports what and why in Syria, break down some myths and explain the situation with Assad, the “moderate” rebels, and the Kurds, and what this means for American leftists.

Episode 11: News – Vault7, Worlds Best Healthcare 2017 feat. @MurderBryan

Episode 11: News – Vault7, Worlds Best Healthcare 2017 feat. @MurderBryan
This week, with VIP guest @MurderBryan, the Discourse Newsboys (@geckofantasies, @mmalloyboy, @RIPMarkusJ, @cuckymcfucky) talk about the Vault7 leak and the CIA, and the World’s Best Healthcare Bill 2016, the most poorly named legislation of all time. Bryan fills us in a little bit on the stuff Street Fight is going to be doing, and we scream about how awful call centers and Phoenix, AZ is.

Also, @mmalloyboy is deeply sorry that he sounds like he’s calling in from a tin can at the bottom of the ocean, his mic fucked up while traveling.
