This week on Acronym TV:

The YES MEN strike again!, Medea Benjamin of Code Pink on Obama’s foreign policy legacy, Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein on the #AfterBern and the Obama #SOTU and Dennis breaks down Obama’s Siren song.

On the Show:

In his final State of the Union, President Barack Obama asserted that we have recovered from the 2007/08 financial crisis, asserting that the United States has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. However, the bubble that Wall Street has built since 2008 – knowing full well that they are playing with house money – makes the housing bubble look like a cute little white head pimple on the face of a dainty little unicorn. The coming bubble burst is a huge ingrown hair zit on the third eye of the world, and it is ready to pop.

Host Dennis Trainor, Jr. breaks down Obama’s final #SOTU.

Most American voters see huge differences between, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump – or Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz – and assert that those differences are substantive enough that they feel like that can either ignore independent or express outright hostility to candidates like Dr. Stein.

In this interview, Dennis Trainor, Jr. asks Green Party Presidential Candidate Dr. Jill Stein, are most voters wrong? And, related to the broader ‘lesser-evil’ argument that keeps voters tied to the two party duopoly, if Bernie Sanders does not win the nomination of the Democratic party, is Dr. Stein positioned to treat his followers for #AfterBern?

Earlier this week in the European Parliament in Brussels, a “defense and security consultant” (actually Andy Bichlbaum of the Yes Men, working together with Greek MEP Stelios Kouloglou) presented an “industrial solution to terrorism” which—unlike all other military and security solutions—is guaranteed to actually work.
