The Koch Bros Fingerprints All Over the GOP Convention

Lisa Graves, Center for Media and Democracy joins Thom. In the primaries - Donald Trump ran as a "really really rich" candidate who wasn't beholden to America's billionaire class. So why did he choose a running mate who's career has been bankrolled by the Koch Brothers?

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?

The Right's Crazy For God

Frank Schaeffer, Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back joins Thom.

Is “Free Speech" Really Sexist & Racist Harassment?

Benjamin Dixon, The Benjamin Dixon Show joins Thom. Milo Yiannopoulos is complaining that his ban from Twitter somehow violates his free speech. But does "free speech" really cover sexist and racist harassment?

Cruz Said “You’re Fired!"

John Nichols, The Nation Magazine/People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy joins Thom. Throughout this campaign there’s been a sense that this is one big reality show - with Donald Trump as the star. And thanks to the lapdog corporate media - events that would normally doom another candidate have instead boosted Trump’s celebrity - which - let’s be honest - is about 50 percent of his appeal. So will the ongoing divisions within the Republican Party actually hurt Trump going forward? Or will his status as the nominee and the nation’s first reality TV show candidate keep the Trump Train rolling all the way to the White House

Banking: Is the GOP Feeling the Bern?

Sam Sacks, The District Sentinel, joins Thom. When it emerged from the drafting table last week - the 2016 Republican platform was among the most extreme Republican platforms in history. Among other things - it called on public schools to teach the Bible - demanded that lawmakers use religion when making decisions about bills in Congress - and even condemned pornography as a public menace. One week later - the Republican platform is still very much the Sarah Palin on steroids document it was when it first came together. But it also now includes something surprising, something straight out of the Bernie Sanders playbook: a call to reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933.

Why Did Trump Pick A Pro-Trade VP?

Rumble - Christian Taliban Now In the GOP Platform

Crystal Wright, Con Job: How the Democrats Gave Us Crime, Sanctuary Cities, Abortion Profiteering and Racial Division/Conservative Black Chick & Alex Lawson, Social Security Works & Charles Sauer, The Market Institute all join Thom. The official GOP platform encourages the public display of the Ten Commandments. But why is the GOP pretending that our Constitution establishes a theocracy?

Rumble - Why GOP Ignored Jobs Theme at Convention

Crystal Wright, Con Job: How the Democrats Gave Us Crime, Sanctuary Cities, Abortion Profiteering and Racial Division/Conservative Black Chick & Alex Lawson, Social Security Works & Charles Sauer, The Market Institute all join Thom. The truth is that every speaker spent more time bashing Hillary Clinton than they did praising Trump. But what's really confusing - is the fact that the actual scheduled theme of the night had absolutely nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. The actual theme of the night was "Make America Work Again." So why didn't any of the speakers talk about any plans to actually put America back to work? Is it because neither Trump nor the GOP has any real plan to create jobs - and they're just using nationalism - immigration - and anti-Clinton rhetoric to rally their base of white racists and sexists? So why didn't any of the speakers talk about any plans to actually put America back to work?

CEO's Putting Profits Before Country Are Un-American

If I declared right now that I won't be paying any taxes until the U.S. government lowers my taxes to a "fair rate", I'd almost certainly be arrested for tax evasion.
