Trump Lies...Media Looks the Other Way

Bob Ney, Journalist/former Congressman/Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hit Men of Capitol Hill, joins Thom. Presumptive Republican Nominee Donald Trump gave a blistering 40 minute speech yesterday attacking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for everything from destroying America's middle class to creating ISIL. The one problem with what he said in his speech? It was mostly half-truths - lies - and outright distortions of reality. And the truth is - that Trump hopes and trusts that no one will bother to fact-check or call him on his bald-faced lies.

The Corporate Media Spin On Orlando

Sarah Lazare, Alternet, joins Thom. There has been a massive outcry for gun control in the aftermath of Orlando- and at least five gun control bills have been brought forward in Congress. But there's also been a massive push in support of retaliatory military escalation against ISIL and a massive crackdown on Muslim-American communities - based solely on the fact that the shooter - Omar Mateen - swore allegiance to the terrorist group during a 9-1-1 call during the attack. Donald Trump and other Republicans immediately condemned "Radical Islamic Terrorism" for the attack - despite the fact that FBI director James Comey and CIA Director James Brennan have both said that there is no evidence of ties between Mateen and ISIL Unfortunately - the mainstream media have let politicians and candidates call for military escalation without clarifying that Mateen's ties to ISIL are unverified.

Rumble - Why the GOP Healthcare Plan Is a Disaster

Bryan Pruitt, RedState & Holly Shulman, Democratic Strategist & Charles Sauer, The Market Institute joins Thom. House Republicans today excitedly unveiled their long-awaited replacement plan for Obamacare. The plan of course begins with repealing Obamacare - and then aims to make Medicare more profitable for banksters in the health insurance business while raising the retirement age to 67 - cap Medicaid payments so really sick people are totally screwed - and provide a tax credit so if you're going to get any money from the government for healthcare you can only do it once a year and have to fill out all sorts of paperwork. But even worse - the plan isn't even a plan. It’s a white paper - not an actual bill - which means that the plan can avoid the specifics necessary in a bill - and it avoids having to put forward any real budget numbers whatsoever. And the truth is - this plan is complicated even without the details - and it's basically a way to make more profits for private insurers while giving the health insurance banksters the right, once again, to figure out a million little ways to screw their customers. So isn't it time to go to a simple and affordable plan - like single payer Medicare-for-All?

Here's What's the Matter with Kansas…

The verdict is in, and it's time for conservatives to face the cold hard facts.

Right-wing trickle-down Reaganomics doesn't work.

It doesn't work internationally, it doesn't work nationally, and it doesn't work at the state level.
