How To Expand Social Security For Millennials

If you've ever seen an advertisement from the Pete Peterson foundation - you've heard the fearmongering that says that social security won't be around for today's young people and that it will inevitably run out of money even if immigrants aren't "jumping the line" to collect un-earned social security benefits. The real question is - why are there so many lies about social security - and what's the truth? Let's ask Steven Hill - co-founder of FairVote - former Director of the Political Reform Program at the New America Foundation joins.

Tribal Rights & the Dakota Access Pipeline

The Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its allies from other indigenous nations are protesting the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline. Once finished - the pipeline will bring oil almost 1200 miles from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota all the way to Illinois. Although the project was approved by the government -the Standing Rock Sioux say their interests and historical claims were not taken into account when that decision was made. Which is why they've now brought their protest right here to Washington, DC. Today - the Standing Rock Sioux asked a federal judge to put the Dakota Access pipeline on hold. They also led a really outside the court - which was attended by people from around the country - including actresses Susan Sarandon and Shailene Woodley. Joining me now is the woman who MC'd today's rally - Bobbi Jean Three Legs - a Youth Organizer with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Proof Bailing Out Nuclear Plants Is Bad!

Harvey Wasserman, Solartopia/The Strip & Flip Selection Of 2016: Five Jim Crows & Electronic Election Theft joins Thom. In nuke news...When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo first announced his Clean Energy Standard back in December - it certainly sounded great. After all - under the Governor's plan - the Empire State was set to get 50 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2030. It soon became clear - however - that Governor Cuomo had a very - very different understanding of "renewable" energy" than most of the rest of us. Although he did put forward plans to boost the amount of energy New York gets from solar and wind power - the Governor's Clean Energy Standard also included plans to prop up New York's failing and dangerous nuclear power sector

Rumble: Fox News - A Sex-Fueled Cult

Jason Russell, Washington Examiner & Zaid Jilani, The Intercept & Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller all join Thom. On Monday - former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros filed a lawsuit in the New York State Supreme Court alleging that "Fox News masquerades as defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny." The suit alleges that Bill O'Reilly invited her to stay with him on Long Island where it would be "very private" and that she could show him her "wild side" She also alleges that Ailes' made inappropriate comments about a number of Fox personalities to Tantaros - and that when she complained to Senior Executive Bill Shine - he told her that she "needed to let this one go." After Ailes' left Fox - Shine was elevated to Vice President - meaning women probably shouldn't expect a lot of change at Fox anytime soon. This kind of sexual harassment was considered "normal" in workplaces around the country 40 years ago - and it's still common in a lot of places - especially smaller companies in red states. So when is the GOP going to reject this sort of "traditional" sexism and actually vote for the Equal Rights Amendment? Or does the GOP think that this type of sexism is part of what used to make America great?

Rumble: Will Trump Be As Tough As Duterte?

Jason Russell, Washington Examiner & Zaid Jilani, The Intercept & Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller all join Thom. An average of 36 people a day have been killed for the last seven weeks in the Philippines because of Duterte's war against drugs - would Donald "let's be very much tougher" Trump go even further to try and completely end crime in America by killing everybody he considers suspicious?

Voter Suppression Is Real & Now We Have Mathematical Proof

Jennifer Farmer, Advancement Project joins Thom. It's not just voter suppression ID laws that are threatening to block minority voters from casting votes - it's the polling lines themselves. A new report from the Center for Political and Economic Studies used data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study to figure out which races of people have the longest average wait-times at polls. The report showed unsurprisingly that black voters aren't just being targeted with stringent voter ID laws that focus exclusively on the type of IDs that black Americans are less likely to have - they're waiting in line nearly twice as long as white voters at the polling places. But what factors are leading to such a disparity in terms of wait times at polling places?

The Standing Rock Tribe Speaks Out

Tim Mentz, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe joins Thom. After more than 1500 people joined with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline construction under the Missouri River - North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple issued an emergency declaration for southwest and south central North Dakota late last week. Dave Archambault II - who is Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe responded with disappointment - writing in response that: "Tribal leaders are committed to non-violence and peaceful prayer as the guiding principle of Cannon Ball River camps. …. This is an opportunity to work together in a spirit of cooperation, and we should take advantage of that opportunity. But with all due respect, the Governor's declaration of emergency was unfortunate." And on Monday - North Dakota's homeland security director ordered that state-owned trailers and water tanks be removed from the protest campsite citing the risk of damage and reports of "unlawful activity." Those tanks have been the main drinking water supply for the protestors.

Crazy Alert! Apparently Trump Isn't the Only Carnival Barker

Politics is for the dogs - literally. Or at least it is in Cormorant - Minnesota - which over the weekend saw the reelection of a Great Pyreenees named Duke to another term as mayor. Hmmm...Apparently Donald Trump isn't the only carnival barker in American politics...

Politics Panel - Why Does Trump Wants A Police State?

Bryan Pruitt, RedState & Alex Lawson, Social Security Works & Hughey Newsome, BOLD.global/Move-On-Up joins Thom. Although Donald Trump has talked for months now about how he’s a “law and order” candidate - he’s never really gone into detail as to what that actually means. And probably for good reason, too - because when he does go into detail about what he thinks about law and order issues - what comes out of his mouth is downright terrifying. This was made very clear during in an interview last night with Bill O’Reilly of Fox So-Called News. When asked by O’Reilly how he could stop violent crime in big cities like Chicago - Trump responded by saying he would give police the authority to do basically whatever the hell they want
