It's been another week since Donald Trump was acquitted in Mitch McConnell's sham trial and another week where he has stepped on the gas in his drive toward authoritarianism. This week, Stu and AJ dive into how he's doing just that, from pardoning not only cronies but those whose crimes resemble his own, declaring himself (erroneously) America's top law enforcement official, appoint blindly loyal stooges to critical posts, and even calling for the removal from office of Barack Obama (who, um, isn't in office).   Plus! A look at Nevada's caucuses and what it means going forward, the many ways Bernie dominated, and why — whether you support Sanders or not — all Democrats and Trump resisters should be very happy with how things played out.   Take Action: Call your senators at 202.224.3121 and tell them to fund election security and pass measures to stop Russia from meddling in our democracy once and for all.   Moment of Uplift: At a Catholic school outside of Seattle, Paul Danforth and Michelle Beatty were forced out of their teaching jobs after getting engaged to their same sex partners. It looked like they may have no recourse against the school... until their students got involved.   This is your country for the week of February 23, 2020!   Produced by Sam Graber Engineered by Mark Charles, recorded at the Ramshackler Room, Louisville, KY Music by Mike Michel
