Rumble - Why Did It Take Five Hours To Vote in AZ?

Horace Cooper, National Center for Public Policy Research & Alex Lawson, Social Security Works & Gianno Caldwell, Caldwell Strategic Consulting join Thom. Last night's primaries in Arizona were a mess - with some voters waiting as much as 5 hours to cast their ballots and thousands being told they couldn't vote at all. So isn't it time we made it easier - not harder to vote? Let’s be clear - this is not what democracy looks like. It’s what voter suppression looks like. So isn’t time we enshrined an affirmative right to vote in the Constitution?

Mass Extinction Is Closer Than You Know

Climate change is real, of course, but two new scientific papers out this past week say that it's happening a hell of a lot faster, and in a more dangerous direction, than scientists were even considering as a worst-case scenario just a few years ago.
