277. Mayor Yemi Mobolade. America’s Independent Mayor is Back. Who Will He Endorse for President? The Advantages of Being An Independent Politician. Who the Hell is Melina Abdullah? Trump on Trial. Ukraine’s 1 to 10 Problem. Tee Ball is Life.

The spring offensive is here. The spring offensive of news, chaos, war and misinformation. The spring offensive, attacking democracy foreign and domestic. A spring offensive before the summer storm. A storm of the century. 

It’s a storm that’s sweeping across Ukraine. It’s sweeping across America. It’s sweeping across the globe. And despite the fear and the chaos and the turmoil, every once in a while there’s a glimmer of hope. A light on the horizon that you can aim for and keep going.

For independents, one of our brightest lights is the independent Mayor of Colorado Springs, Yemi Mobolade (@MayorofCOS). He’s back after appearing in Episode 228 – June 22, 2023 to check in and let us all know how things are going after his first year in office. He’s a true success story that shows the power of the independent movement—and this inspiring conversation is an appetizer for next week’s first installment of our groundbreaking “Meet The 2024 Independent Candidates” series—highlighting independent candidates of all kinds, for all levels of office, from all across America. If you’re interested in independent politics—or American politics in general—this is a can’t miss.

Your host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) rips into all of it in this all new episode of Independent Americans. And hits on Trump’s first week on trial, the big Ukraine funding bill stalled in Congress, Zelensky’s latest plea for help, Cornel West’s pick for VP, and why tee ball is what life should be like in America. 

Every episode is the truth beyond the headlines–and light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows. It’s content for the 49% of Americans that proudly call themselves independent. And delivers the Righteous Media 5 Is: independence, integrity, information, inspiration and impact.
