Eric starts off the episode by talking about how Facebook suspended him for one week over a post in support of a January 6th prisoner. They then discuss the mess in Ukraine, whether or not Russia will actually invade, and what the true America First stance is towards the Russia-Ukraine conflict. For the main topic, they react to the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, and the news that Joe Biden will automatically pick a black woman to replace him.
