The @-Bomb

Hi Thom. Hoping this may reach you. I read your daily column and and then share it with friends in Maine. I wondered if you had covered the subject of the article by Mattithias Schwartz in the NYT magazine this past Sunday. It caught my attention and made me wonder an awful lot about the pervasiveness of cyber crime, and the uses of malware for good or evil. Terrific aticle! Thanks for all you have done to broadcast about "crosschecking" and Kris Kobach. I hope someday his story and what he has done will make it onto 60 minutes or an Oliver Stone movie.

ALBERTA TAR SAND development a series of ECOLOGICAL DISASTERS

The whole tar sands extraction process is a multi level ecological disaster, past pipeline debates are more like a diversionary hoax.

Donating hotel profits may be another scam

At his press conference, one of the things Donald Trump said was that he would donate all the profits from his D.C.

Women's March Could Be Bigger Than Trump Inauguration

The inauguration of a new president is traditionally one of the biggest events in years in Washington—but if bus parking figures are anything to go by, Donald Trump's inauguration may not even be the city's biggest event next week. DC Council member Charles Allen tells NBC4 that only around 200 requests to park charter buses at RFK Stadium, the main such parking facility, have been made for Jan. 20, but there have been at least 1,200 requests for Jan. 21, the day after the inauguration, when the Women's March on Washington will be held.

You Cannot Built A Grassroots Tea Party for Democrats - here's why

I wrote a little something about my recent experience running in the California ADEM election. I think it's important to note that, while the turnout was high (fueled by a strong Bernie/ Progressive enthusiasm), many of those running for Assembly District Delegate were actually DEAN/ KERRY guys who were taking this opportunity to further their position in the party. So in other words, same 'ol, same 'ol.

Thoughts welcomed.

A REAL right wing SICKO

More hush money reported being paid to protect sexual predator Bill O'Reilly, caught again terrorizing women at fox news. Apparently according to public sources, O'Reilly gets off calling fellow female workers and sounding like he masterbates while talking dirty. Talk about a dirty old man. This the same Bill O'Reilly who beats his wife, drags her up a flight of stairs in a headlock choke hold, this the same man who compounds his abuse of his wife by committing adultery with sexual advances towards another female employee, that to settled by the fox news executive with hush money.

Why is the Pence Administration pushing so hard to keep e-mails from the citizens of Indiana?

An Indiapolis attorney, Bill Groth, is currently suing the Pence Administration for disclosure of the addministrations e-mails. Is it appropriate for the Pence Administrtion to refuse to publish the e-mails?

COPS NOT EVEN in TOP TEN of DANGEROUS JOBS

Cops killed in the line of duty, lets not be overly dramatic, its 22 times more dangerous to be a construction worker. "In 2013 there were 4,585 on-the-job fatalities. Of those, 828 were in the construction industry. Put another way: Nearly 1 in 5 on-the-job deaths were on construction sites." In that same year across America there were 34 cop deaths. IN that same year 2013 cops shot and killed 780 citizens. The next year cops killed over 1100 Americans, in 2015 cops killed 1200 citizens, in 2016 that number was 1150 killed by cops.

Why Trump "won"

First of all --- Trump DID NOT win! What happened was 1 - voter purging & suppression. 2 - many did not get up and vote (they thought Hillary was really far ahead). 3 - Character assassination. 4 - some counties switched every third vote to Trump. (I know this to be true, but, cannot reveal my source. GOP knows it -- and, blocked the re-count in the counties that did this. Done by machines.

Nazi Germany, Donald? Really? Meet the Hypocrit-in-Chief

It’s really unfair to make false accusations. How awful that anyone, let alone the intelligence community, might raise this issue about Trump’s potential shady affairs in Russia. It’s “VERY UNFAIR.” It’s “TERRIBLE.” It’s “SHAMEFUL”, “FALSE NEWS” !! [sic Donald Trump]

Trump's News Conference

Tom,

Did Trump's lawyer say that he can hire his son-law because he not a blood relative?

And he also made the state that he is not in debt and owes money to no one. He does realize that that is a recorded statement and he lied, RIGHT!!!

Good Cops and Bad Cops: Why There is So Much Skepticism of Law Enforcement

More officers killed. Our hearts go out to their families. But let's not constantly being diverted from a fundamental problem of policing in the US.

The Rise of a Left-Wing Tea Party?

During a heated confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Georgia Congressman Tom Price, Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of Health and Human Services, refused to say whether or not he would support cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.
