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

Politics Panel - Felon Voting Restrictions Are A Vestige of Jim Crow

Bryan Pruitt, RedState & Alex Lawson, Social Security Works & Hughey Newsome, BOLD.global/Move-On-Up joins Thom. On Monday Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe moved to restore the individual voting rights of around 13,000 convicted felons. The move came after a Supreme Court ruling blocked an earlier order by McAulliffe that would have restored the voting rights of almost 200,000 felons - the majority of whom were African American and done their duty do society by serving out their sentences.

Rumble: Aetna Makes Case For Single-Payer

Gianno Caldwell, Caldwell Strategic Consulting & Siobhan "Sam" Bennett, Political Strategist/Ascend & Scott Greer, The Daily Caller all join Thom. Aetna - which is the nation's third largest health insurance company joined United Healthcare and Humana in scaling back from the Obamacare state exchanges -when they announced on Monday that they would be withdrawing from 11 state health insurance exchanges. That same day - the Department of Justice blocked Aetna's request to merge with Humana - which seemed like more than a coincidence. And it was Huffington Post reporters uncovered a letter from July in which Aetna's CEO Mark Bertolini basically threatened the Justice Department, writing: "We believe it is very likely that we would need to leave the public exchange business entirely and plan for additional business efficiencies should our deal ultimately be blocked." Isn't this another argument for why we need to take the profit motive out of health care and offer a public option? Isn't this another aspect of the commons - like fire insurance and health care - that a government accountable to the people should manage?

America Is a Country - Not a Business!

America is, increasingly, no longer a country; instead, we're being run like a business, and in some cases it's literally killing us.

Take for example, the ongoing problem of foodborne illnesses like Salmonella, which infects over a million Americans every year.
