S8:E15 (Ryan Walters & His Lack of Work Ethic)

This week on Across the Desk, Kit Fairchild talks about Ryan Walters not showing up to work to provide base leadership as another grant writing manager resigns, he's late to his own meeting, hasn't shown up for meetings, and basically, isn't showing up to work at the job he was voted, and being paid 6 figures to do. Also, a court decision from West Virginia says you can't force kids to sit through an evangelical event. And here we are, several meetings later, and Summer Boismier still has an active teaching certificate in Oklahoma. She's suing Ryan for his personal assets for the defamation and the stochastic terrorism he invoked..

Across the Desk - S8:E14 (GOP - The Chaos & Dysfunction Continues)

This week on Across the Desk, Kit Fairchild talks about the chaos and dysfunction of Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives as they had no plan beyond getting McCarthy out of the Speaker's chair. They have gone through several candidates and three rounds of voting for Jim Jordan, the last guy to throw his hat in the ring, where he lost votes at every attempt. Now we don't know who will be Speaker as several (R)s have declared a run and all the while, no business gets done in the house. No aid to Ukraine, no aid to Israel, and 26 days till the current CR comes due for funding the government..
