Is The American Media Held Captive By Corporate Advertisers?

Thom talks about the mainstream media's lack of coverage regarding climate change and oil-related accidents and asks if the lack of coverage is due to the advertising money coming from fossil fuel companies.

Do oil rig accidents contribute? Oil and climate change can affect the world. Does the American media news take part in an oil coverup ?

Is There Really Any Money In The Social Security Trust Fund?

Thom speaks with caller Wayne, who asks why there is such a difference in how the Left and the Right talk about the Social Security Trust Fund and whether there is really money in that fund.

***********
VIDEO NOTES

Is there any money in the social security trust fund?

How much has been taken out of the fund, if any?

Should the fund be invested in the stock market, or where they are today, in Government funds.

More money is being paid out that in being collected in. Will there enough social security for retirement?

Trump Said He'll Rebuild Our Infrastructure... But At What Cost???

Thom talks to caller Jeff, who says we should push Donald Trump to keep his campaign promises about rebuilding our infrastructure.

However, Thom warns we must consider the costs of privatizing our roads and bridges.

***********
VIDEO NOTES

China has high speed rail, the US doesn't.

Should we push Donald Trump to build a high speed Maglev train system as they have in China?

Do we want to move in to the current century with our country?

#TheDonald complains about rail. But on roads, talks about a public private partnership and "we will repair all the roads". And the private companies will own the roads. Toll roads, is that what we can expect?

Thom debates former Libertarian Presidential Candidate Austin Petersen, about the Republican plan to destroy Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid and how it would impact needy Americans.

***********
VIDEO NOTES

Austin Petersen believes that the Trump administration plan to destroy social security and do away with The New Deal.

If the Republican's succeed in cutting by 50%, how will people survive? Will changes to legislation be passed anyway?

Thom and Austin battle words to discover what will happen and how it will help the person in the street.

And what, if anything, will #TheDonald do anyway?

Activists Attacked By Trump Supporters! (w/guests: Patti Cruz & Connor Hicks)

Thom speaks with activists Patti Cruz and Connor Hicks about the attack they experienced, by men claiming to be Trump supporters, after organizing against the new President in New York City.

***********
VIDEO NOTES

Trump supporters attack protesters.

Patti Cruz and Connor Hicks activists with NYC Shut It Down, Bash Back NYC and Cop Watch, were attacked by four or five Trump supporters, yelling obscenities and chanting Trump! Trump! Trump!

They approached, chanting and everyone scattered in fear, as they punched Connor. Patti tried to help, but was slung against a wall. Others were thrown to the ground.

Were these guys police officers?

It is all very worrying. There have been over 1,000 such attacks since Trump was elected and shortly due to become POTUS
