Top Clinton Donor Apparently Appointed to Post He Wasn't Qualified for

This is very disturbing. With the Clintons it has been, and always will be, about money( large amounts )----the acquistion of it, and retention of it. Given that, GREED should not be allowed to compromise our national security in any way.

Lawsuit Filed As Bernie Wins California Apparently by a Landslide

Not a pretty picture of American democracy. We send election watchers to other countries to make sure they have fair elections. Seems we need to keep them right here at home, but then who knows, maybe they're doing the same thing over there? I was very suspicious when I saw that San Francisco and other counties that went for Obama in 2008 went to Clinton this time around. Did their politics change that much?

Culture

'Rape culture on campuses across the US' was a headline recently after the 6 month sentence case showed how common rape is on campus (and military-the one US institution that citizens hold dear and trust wholeheartedly- Pentagon Papers be damned).

Another cultural quality 1000s of special needs cases/abuse-of-kids-with-disabilities/ by their teachers. Abusing special needs kids is aka American Exceptionalism.

Pushing Bernie out

The DC Primary is Tuesday and is the last primary of the primary season and they should vote cause their votes do matter. Yes vote for Bernie cause he needs it more the Hillary and more importantly the more delegates he wins the stronger he’ll be able to negotiate for issues at the National Convention in July. Things like Medicare for all, same day voter registration to help deal with voter purges, elimination of the superdelegates, and other important issues.

Coming in November, California’s "Overturn Citizens United Act"

Thanks to Jerry Brown, Californians will vote in November to instruct elected officials to restore speech rights to the People.

AGAIN, BEWARE THE COMING GOP “VOTE HACK” OF 2016

Yes, America, just as it has been demonstrably proven in the last several election cycles (since at least 2004), your election results will undoubtedly be “tampered” with - YET ONCE AGAIN - by clandestine operatives of the GOP. Not only is this NOT a joke, but said election night hacking/“vote-flipping” will not just be confined to the “top of the ticket”, but will likely even reach into Congressional and State races, as well.

The money quote;

The appointment qualified Fernando for one of the highest levels of top secret access, the emails show

Having access to top secret intelligence makes for profitable trading I suspect.

TrustVote.org

Has anyone been following http://trustvote.org? It's a group I'm not familiar with and I'd like to know more about them. I didn't believe voter supression was that bad until my friend got caged. Now, I think the election fraud is worse than we think. The Democratic primary results in Ohio didn't feel right, especially when I heard that the exit polls said people voted for Hillary because of her stance on trade. The people of Ohio aren't stupid and they know the Clintons passed NAFTA. If trade was a major issue, Bernie should have won. It felt like the results were flipped.

Frank Schaeffer

Frank Schaeffer helped in the founding of the religious right. It's really interesting to hear what he has to say about the right. Thom should have him on the show.

A great Samantha Bee interview of Frank:

Right-wing trickle-down Reaganomics doesn't work.

It doesn't work internationally, it doesn't work nationally, and it doesn't work at the state level.
