James and Al skewer the radical Republicans complicit in the events of J6 and welcome former presidential advisor and Lincoln biographer Sidney Blumenthal.  They shut down the corruption allegations targeting President Biden, discuss the capture of MAGA by Putin and propaganda, and lay out the threat Russia poses to our elections and allies.  Then, they dive into the life and times of Abraham Lincoln, examining what made him such an effective politician, key moments on his path to the presidency, and the steps he took to hold the country together while it was tearing itself apart.
