Will Iowa Voters Choose Steve King or a BernieCrat?

Kim Weaver, Candidate for Congress (D-IA, 4th District) joins Thom. Congressman Steve King of Iowa is a persistent political puzzle. How is it that actual American voters will continue to send to congress a man who is proud to fly a confederate - the rebels who both started and lost the Civil War - flag on his desk, and continually makes racist statements. Kim Weaver is the Democrat challenging King's re-election in western Iowa, and not only offers a strong progressive agenda but also has some insights into why King's own constituents by-and-large don't know how far into David Duke-world he regularly goes.

Is Blue Lives Matter A Hate Group?

Max Blumenthal, Grayzone Project-Alternet/The 51 Day War joins Thom. When Black Lives Matter protests first made their appearance on the national scene - the line from conservatives was "No, black lives don't matter - ALL lives matter." Right-wingers have kept up this kind of thinking for most of the past year - but lately they've come out with a new slogan to demonize anti-police violence protesters. You might have heard Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke say it at the Republican National Convention. Here's the thing - though - Blue Lives Matter is more than just a slogan. It’s a hate movement.

Politics Panel - Neocons & Progressives Support Clinton - What?!

Hughey Newsome, BOLD.global/Move-On-Up & Anya Parampil, RT America & Bryan Pruitt, RedState joins Thom. If the Clinton campaign wants to win over the Bernie Sander supporters it hasn’t won over already - that’s the argument it’s going to have to make in some form or another between now and November. But there’s one tiny problem. For someone who’s supposedly such a progressive - Hillary Clinton is starting to win over a lot of Republicans. And these aren’t just any Republicans - I’m talking the most Republican of Republicans - the neocons. So what are progressives supposed to make of these very high profile Republican supporters of Hillary Clinton? Do they tell us more about Clinton or her opponent - Donald Trump? And will they affect how she runs her campaign over the next 3 months?

Politics Panel: No Bernie - No Climate Change

Hughey Newsome, BOLD.global/Move-On-Up & Anya Parampil, RT America & Bryan Pruitt, RedState joins Thom. Bernie has and probably will remain the only candidate this election cycle to talk about climate change like it is - an existenial threat. This should be a mainstream position. Doesn't it say something completely daming about our political system that it isn't?

The Koch Bros Fingerprints All Over the GOP Convention

Trump Is Changing on Global Trade...

Dr. Mark Weisbrot, Center for Economic and Policy Research (C.E.P.R.)/Just Foreign Policy/FAILED: What the "Experts" Got Wrong about the Global Economy, joins Thom. While Trump has run a campaign based on the promise that he'll put Americans back to work by ending or renegotiating all of our disastrous trade deals - Mike Pence has made a career in Washington supporting every single one of those trade deals! Seriously - he's shown so much support for our so-called free trade deals that the Chamber of Commerce recently wrote a piece called "Mike Pence Has a Great Track Record on Trade" celebrating his support of every single trade deal that Donald Trump opposes. Back in 2001 he pushed to give "trade promotion authority" - also known as fast track authority - to George W. Bush. So - will this ticket divided be able to stand?
