Mike joins Marc, Brian and Odie to toss back some adult beverages and riff on topics including the return of Rand Paul, a failed attempt to discuss Cassidy-Graham Bill, Harrison Ford's nazi punching and faultly plane landings, the the best bad B-movies, and tackle the question "Who Would Blow up the Asteroids in a Libertarian Society?", and debate who did more damage to libertarianism in the last year - Gary Johnson, or Christopher Cantwell?

And the fun doesn't end here! Sign up now for the Lions of Liberty Pride for as little as $5/month, to get access to our 30 minute, even drunker bonus segment with Mike Brancatelli.

Shane Claiborne joins the Felony Friday show to discuss a subject that is pretty controversial, the death penalty. Shane is a Christian activist and author who is one of the founding members of the intentional community, the Simple Way, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Eastern University, where he studied sociology and youth ministry.

Shane has an impressive resume. He worked alongside Mother Teresa during a 10-week term in Calcutta. He spent three weeks in Baghdad with the Iraq Peace Team and took daily trips to sites where there had been bombings, visited hospitals and families, and attended worship services during the war. - Claiborne is featured in the documentary The Ordinary Radicals, and he co-directed the three volume Another World is Possible series.

In 2011 he declared his unwillingness to pay taxes to fund U.S. military activity and withheld a portion of his income taxes meant to correspond to the percentage of the federal budget spent on the military, donating that money instead to charity. Shane is the author of the book Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It's Killing Us.

In this week's episode of Electric Libertyland, host Brian McWilliams gives his take on the Trumpian circle-jerk that was the 2017 Emmy Awards, and how politics and entertainment need to take a break from each other. He then turns towards more serious topics including the utter failure of the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing programs, the GOP's last-ditch effort to repeal Obamacare (kind of) with the Graham-Cassidy plan, the state of the 1st Amendment, new climate research and an idiotic idea in the UK to limit voting rights based on internet trolling.

In today's episode, Marc is joined by Maine State Senator and a man who has been called "The Next Rand Paul" since he announced the launch of his run for U.S. Senate in 2016, Eric Brakey! Eric is the only Senate candidate currently endorsed by both Ron Paul and Rand Paul. Listen today as Eric explains how he became interested in the ideas of liberty, how he won his State Senate seat on a small government platform, and how he plans to become the youngest Senator in history  by defeating Angus King in the 2018 U.S. Senate election.

On today's episode recent clemency recipient Ramona Brant joined the show to share her powerful story. In 1995, Ramona was sentenced to life in prison for a cocaine offense related to her then-boyfriend’s drug dealing. At her sentencing the judge said he was “shocked at the severity of the sentence,” BUT he had no legal discretion to sentence her to less time. 

Ramona spent 20 years in prison, before finally receiving a commutation from President Obama in 2015, and was released to a halfway house in February 2016. In March 2016, Ramona met President Obama during a special lunch for commutation recipients, and participated in a White House briefing on clemency, where she shared her story. Ramona is now the PR Director of the CAN-DO Guardian Angel program that has paired over 40 Guardian Angels with approximately 50 clemency applicants.

In this week's Electric Libertyland, host Brian McWilliams touches briefly on 9/11 #NeverForget and its echoing effects on the American psyche, which government takes advantage of to justify endless wars and domestic spying. Brian then looks at Rand Paul standing up for a referendum on AUMF, then cracks wise on the Ted Cruz porn "scandal" while also side-eying Hillary Clinton's new cry-ography "What Happened" and asks, "which of them is actually guiltier of masturbation"? Brian also examines the effects of the recent hurricanes and the fallacy of Broken Windows economics, the $15.3B "relief" (and debt spending) bill, and a final thrilling conclusion to the epic tale of the PETA Monkey Selfie lawsuit.

On today's show, Marc is joined by Scott Horton on the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to discuss his new book on the Afghnanistan War, "Fool's Errand: It's Time to End the War in Afghanistan." The 9/11 attacks were used as justifcation for the Afghan War, but after raging for nearly 16 years, does that justification hold any water? Why is the United States still involved years after the death of Osama bin Laden? Can Trump's new/old "go after the bad guys" strategy change anything? We discuss all this and so much more with the most knowledgeable human being on foreign policy I've ever encountered, Scott Horton!
