About The Jimmy Dore Show:
#TheJimmyDoreShow is a hilarious and irreverent take on news, politics and culture featuring Jimmy Dore, a professional stand up comedian, author and podcaster. The show is also broadcast on Pacifica Radio Network stations throughout the country.

Written by The Jimmy Dore Show

THE JIMMY DORE SHOW is a comedy lifeline for people on the left and right (but definitely NOT the center) who are sick of bought politicians and gaslighting corporate journalists manufacturing consent for wars.


  1. What happened to Daniel Hale as a whistleblower has not even been reported by the news media. I am hearing from you Jimmy about what happened to Daniel Hale. Remember the Nuremberg Trials when the United States occupied the high moral ground by insisting that German soldiers had a moral obligation to disobey orders that were crimes against humanity. We the people should demand an open inquiry of this case against Daniel Hale. The bipartisan plutocracy controlling congress and the presidency are the biggest domestic threat to our constitutional rights and the peace of other countries.

  2. "The computer is the most extraordinary of man's technological clothing; it's an extension of our central nervous system. Beside it, the wheel is a mere hula-hoop." – Marshall McLuhan

    "It is critical vision alone which can mitigate the unimpeded operation of the automatic." – Marshall McLuhan

    "The future masters of technology will have to be light-hearted and intelligent. The machine easily masters the grim and the dumb." – Marshall McLuhan

    Ron, the application of The Espionage Act was during the early stages of the electronic age. Since the Act is technologically dated, if for no other reason, the case should be thrown out.

  3. The whistleblowers against Trump administration were protected and treated like hero's…the whistleblowers against the Obama administration were jailed and treated like traitors.

  4. For Eli
    Eli came back from Iraq
    and tattooed a teddy bear onto the inside of his wrist
    above that a medic with an IV bag
    above that an angel
    but Eli says the teddy bear won’t live
    and I know I don’t know but I say, “I know”
    ‘cause Eli’s only twenty-four and I’ve never seen eyes
    further away from childhood than his
    eyes old with a wisdom
    he knows I’d rather not have
    Eli’s mother traces a teddy bear onto the inside of my arm
    and says, “not all casualties come home in body bags”
    and I swear
    I’d spend the rest of my life writing nothing
    but the word light at the end of this tunnel
    if I could find the fucking tunnel
    I’d write nothing but white flags

    Somebody pray for the soldiers
    Somebody pray for what’s lost
    Somebody pray for the mailbox
    that holds the official letters
    to the mothers
    and little brothers
    of Michael 19, Steven 21, John 33
    how ironic that their deaths sound like bible verses

    the hearse is parked in the halls of the high school
    recruiting black, brown and poor
    while anti-war activists
    outside walter reed army hospital scream
    100, 000 slain
    as an amputee on the third floor
    breathes forget-me-nots onto the window pain

    But how can we forget what we never knew
    our sky is so perfectly blue it’s repulsive
    Somebody tell me where God lives
    ‘cause if God is truth God doesn’t live here
    our lies have seared the sun too hot to live by
    there are ghosts of kids who are still alive
    touting M16s with trembling hands
    while we dream ourselves stars on Survivor
    another missile sets fire to the face in the locket
    of a mother who’s son needed money for college
    and she swears she can feel his photograph burn
    how many wars will it take us to learn
    that only the dead return
    the rest remain forever caught between worlds of
    shrapnel shatters body of three year old girl
    to welcome to McDonalds can I take your order?

    The mortar of sanity crumbling
    stumbling back home to a home that will never be home again
    Eli doesn’t know if he can ever write a poem again
    One third of the homeless men in this country are veterans
    and we have the nerve to Support Our Troops
    with pretty yellow ribbons
    while giving nothing but dirty looks to their outstretched hands
    Tell me what land of the free
    sets free its eighteen-year-old kids into greedy war zones
    hones them like missiles
    then returns their bones in the middle of the night
    so no one can see
    each death swept beneath the carpet and hidden like dirt
    each life a promise we never kept

    Jeff Lucy came back from Iraq
    and hung himself in his parents basement with a garden hose
    the night before he died he spent forty five minutes on his fathers lap
    rocking like a baby
    rocking like daddy, save me
    and don’t think for a minute he too isn’t collateral damage
    in the mansions of washington they are watching them burn
    and hoarding the water
    no senators’ sons are being sent out to slaughter
    no presidents’ daughters are licking ashes from their lips
    or dreaming up ropes to wrap around their necks
    in case they ever make it home alive

    our eyes are closed
    there are souls in
    the boots of the soldiers
    fuck your yellow ribbon
    you wanna support our troops
    bring them home
    and hold them tight when they get here

    – Andrea Gibson

  5. Jimmy this is why left and right need to come together,if you think one maga supporter wouldn't back you on this your NUTS! TRUMP is not MAGA, Make America great again is for the belief that we can make America not only the richest country in the world but eventually the most honest country in the world…

  6. I have learned from friends of mine about the Vietnam War, too. One of my friends was a helicopter gunner whose job was to kill everyone in the rice fields because one of them might be a Viet Cong. He told me that he would vomit every day for the first couple of weeks until he finally became a robot doing his job. He said they would get a call from below to pick up a Viet Cong and bring him up a few thousand feet in the air. They would torture him to try get him to talk and afterwards, even if he did say where his friends were below, they would push him out to fall to his death. He told me that would fly by a small community while he just held the trigger killing everyone in sight.

    Another friend of mine told me how they would shoot the black U.S. commanders if they didn't like the way they were doing their job that was putting them at risk.

    A few years ago, another one of my friends who was a proud soldier in the Vietnam war and would always talk about it told us that he had just met a former helicopter pilot who flew many missions in the Vietnam. His mission was to drop off gold in payment for drugs to be shipped to the U.S.A. He never spoke about the Vietnam war again.

    What goes on in those wars are more than most people can ever imagine. There is a reason those soldiers come back home all messed up in the mind.

  7. Jimmy! Its funny how " conspiracy theories " under Trump become reality under Biden. Weird.
    But hey, no fat orange man to see on TV anymore pshhj.

  8. Democracy Now has been covering this from day while they fail in many areas to cover..they do good work on these issues and South and Latin America.
