Both Sides of the Aisle

Pardons for marijuana possession, international policy and the Lee-McMullin senate race


Both Sides of the Aisle – Natalie Gochnour is joined on The Right by John Dougall, Utah State Auditor, and on The Left by Shireen Ghorbani, former Salt Lake County Council member. They discuss President Biden’s executive order pardoning federal marijuana charges, moves to block future arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the growing threat of the use of nuclear weapons in the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the recent wave of protests in Iran. They also discuss the Utah Debate Commission, Rep. Burgess Owens’ refusal to participate the same day as a scheduled debate and a new poll and call for endorsements in the Lee-McMullin senate race.

    If Shireen thinks McMullin is a conservative, then it should follow that Utah conservatives will vote for him.

    However if you are pretty progressive, it might seem like anyone less progressive than you is ‘conservative’. And then you might support or agree with calling regular conservatives “extremists” as McMullin has done repeatedly.

    So maybe we make the country a better place and stay away from calling people we disagree with “extremists”? But that’s just me.
