An Irishman Abroad

Has America Lost All Faith? (Eastham’s Emails, Cali Guns For Teenagers Law, Starbucks Grandé Union & More): Irishman In America With Marion McKeone

May 13, 2022
A new poll reveals that voting Americans are losing confidence in institutions such as the Supreme Court, Democrats have their attempt to enshrine abortion rights in federal law blocked and John Eastman’s emails paint a colourful picture of his attempt to undermine the 2020 election result. It’s a packed slate of news from the States in this week’s Irishman in America and Marion pulls no punches. The Starbucks Union situation and a shocking new report about the systematic killing of Native American children in government run schools get discussed in the extended cut on Patreon. And finally Marion recommends a great new book that might just lift your spirits this weekend.
