Who to blame if Biden loses, housing justice, Exxon’s climate crisis

Lee Camp wants you to know what and who to blame if Joe Biden fails to beat Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. This election is being held at a time of skyrocketing inequality, climate change uncertainty, dissatisfaction with the status quo, and popular unrest from the left and right. The DNC chose to push one of their most conservative members onto their ticket while he clearly suffers from mental decline. Trump has been historically unpopular in his first term. The Dems should win easily, but the race they chose to run demobilizes voters and promotes dissatisfaction. It’s like they’re trying to lose. In “Taking the News from Behind,” Camp looks at how the US is booting more people onto the streets while there are still more empty homes here than people without homes, a Philadelphia activist collective recently won the right for unhoused families to remain in city-owned housing, and more on housing justice.

Natalie McGill reports on how the fossil fuel companies, which were previously fined millions for polluting the Earth, collectively received $32 million in PPP loans. The economic downturn from Covid-19 slowed down a recently leaked plan of ExxonMobil’s to rapidly increase its annual carbon-dioxide emissions by as much as the output of the entire nation of Greece. Anders Lee and Camp sit down together to discuss the Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Amy Coney Barrett, and more.
