Greenland

Republican bullet points! With guest Judge Phillip Journey from the NRA

Episode Summary

Donald and Diana are joined by special guest, Judge Phillip Journey, a Republican running for re-election for the Division 1 judge of the Kansas Eighteenth Judicial District. Phil is also a board member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), which boasts 5 million members and is arguably the most potent activist organisation in the US. In this episode, we chat to Phil about: - the process for judicial appointments in the US and his views on the federal Supreme Court nomination process - why Americans won't lay down their guns as Australians did after the Port Arthur massacre - what needs to be prioritised in the wake of the 2020 Presidential Election, no matter who wins. We're incredibly grateful to have Phil share his candid insights with us on Greenland (and some tips for buddying sports gun enthusiasts).
