“He’s a relatively new Democrat,” Clinton said. “I’m not even sure he is one. He's running as one. So I don't know quite how to characterize him. I'll leave that to him.”

Why does BLM hate Bernie Sanders, of all people? (And, until recently, love Hillary?)

Could someone please, for the love of sanity, tell my why, would BLM, an organization claiming to be defending lower income African Americans, attack the embodiment of the welfare state that is Bernie Sanders, and, within weeks, have a nice kind chat with Hillary, who, as some pointed out on Tom's most recent program, is married to the one man who's done the most damage to lower income communities of color since Reagan was in charge. Clinton, who yes, not only slotted a bunch of non-violent criminals into cells, but also slashed welfare more than any president since the New Deal.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said that its aircraft were mainly used to combat the illegal drug trade, human trafficking, violent crime, and may also be used to support investigations by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.

But most of these government planes took the weekends off. The BuzzFeed News analysis found that surveillance flight time dropped more than 70% on Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays.

Bill Clinton: “Black Lives Matter” Protesters Are Defending Murders And Drug Dealers

He also defended Hillary Clinton's use of the phrase "super predators.""I don't know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack, and sent them out in the streets to murder other African-American children," the former president said. "Maybe you thought they were good citizens -- she didn't."

EVERYONE deserves to be heard

Tell Thom how you will vote in November's general election:

A ) - Bernie or Bust

B ) - Any Blue Will Do

C ) - Other

Post a comment with your vote, along with any thoughts you might have, and let Thom know that the time has come for him to openly acknowledge (on-air) what is really happening in his *own* online community.

Thanks to everyone for taking part.

Bernie Fights Back!!

Good for Bernie! He owes Hillary NO apologies. This is politics, not tiddely-winks.

A day after the Clinton camp floated a trial balloon on CNN, saying that the campaign was going to stop trying to unify the party, and was going to shift to a concerted effort to "disqualify Bernie," Hillary hit Bernie, HARD, BUT FAIRLY, over his readiness to be President in light of the NY Daily News Editorial Board Interview.

Be Careful What You Wish For

Demos should be careful about fearing a Trump nomination. if the Repubs choose Cruz, he could beat Socialist Sanders. I fear a religious idealogue more than a pragmatic blowhard like Trump. Cruz has shown how far he will go in the name of principles. Or the repubs find a white knight who hasn't been beaten up by the debates-again will probably beat a socialist. And remember, Hillary may be running to the left-she will govern as a Corporate Democrat.

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

It's the same playbook we've seen the right-wing carry out in Wisconsin, in Kansas, in Michigan, and in Ohio.
