Full Show 8/11/16: Koch Brothers Say No to Trump

Rumble: GOP- The John Wilkes Booth Party

Charles Sauer, The Market Institute & Alex Lawson, Social Security Works &Jason Russell, Washington Examiner joins Thom. Earlier today - CNN reported that the Secret Service did in fact peak with the Trump campaign about his remarks. Before those conversations were confirmed - one former Secret Service official told TIME that "this guy is coming pretty close to the edge here. If this was some guy off the street and they made that statement, you'd go out and interview them. He's not gonna act on this. But you don't know what you're encouraging other people to do." And that's the problem - there's no way to know who might be incited to act based on Trump's word. The RNC is still backing Trump - so the question is: has the party of Abraham Lincoln finally gone so completely off the rails that it's instead become the party of John Wilkes Booth?

The Good, the Bad & the Very Very Reboanticly Ugly!

The bad! Roger Ailes. The story around the disgraced chief of Fox News just keeps getting worse. Gabriel Sherman wrote a piece on Sunday in New York Magazine called "Roger Ailes Used Fox News Budget to Finance 'Black Room' Campaigns Against His enemies.” Sherman outlines allegations that one of Ailes' consultants worked on a project started in 2011 that spied on people he wanted to target - both inside and outside of Fox News - attacking journalists like Joe Lindsley - who edite Ailes's local newspaper - and even Sherman himself. If this is true - this is really bad - and just another example of how men like Ailes use power and money to intimidate anyone who attempts to criticize them or hold them to account.
