Federal Judge finds “evidence of government wrong-doing and bad faith” in scum Hillary clinton’s e-mail privatization.

Excerpt:

“The language in Judge Royce Lamberth's order undercut the Democratic presidential contender's assertion she was allowed to set up a private email server in her home for her work as the country's top diplomat and that the arrangement was not particularly unusual.

Trump just keeps stepping into it regarding abortion. Is he looking for piles to step into?

It would almost seem that Donald Trump is deliberately looking for piles of dogshit to step into when it comes to topics dealing with women's health. Today he told MSNBC's Chris Matthews he thinks women who've had an abortion should be punished. Have to hand it too him; he's the only guy to have positioned himself to the right of most big name heavies active in the conservatiive side of the prolife movement. Huuuuge "accomplishment" of sorts.

Corporations Grow Nervous About Participating in Republican Convention

New York Times, March 31, 2016

Some of the country's best-known corporations are nervously grappling with what role they should play at the Republican National Convention, given the likely nomination of Donald J. Trump, whose divisive candidacy has alienated many women, African-Americans and Hispanics.

I Listened to Trump at the Town Hall Tonight on CNN

I am petrified.

I am a staunch sen Sanders supporter, and I will be very disappointed and discouraged if he does not win the nomination.

However, I listened to the insanity of Trump's "id" with his rambling incoherent answers to questions offered by Anderson Cooper and voters. To his credit, this time, Anderson asked questions more substantive than , "What is your favorite drink?" He also attempted to follow up and press Trump to cease his drivelings and answer the questions, to no success.

HARTMANN ON THE FRONT LINES

EARLIER TODAY on his show Thom described how the Reagan Revolution was a backlash against, "hippies, and gay people, and people of color, and demanding equal rights, and demanding a place at the table, etcetera".

Talk shows are great, but where is the grist?

I am struck this week by all the talk out there. If I were to sit down for the entire day, I could not absorb more than a small percentage of it, and by the end of the day, all that talk goes under the bridge, so a new set of talking points can be aired the next morning. Is that enough?

Yes, this is the information age, so not only do we now get bombarded with a kiloton of nonsense every day but disinformation and outright propaganda, like the recent piece put out by 60 Minutes on the "Giving Pledge", by Bill and Melinda Gates.

Sanders will get another 49 delegates from Washington State

The link below is to the article "Why Washington's other 67 Democratic Delegates haven't been allocatied yet and what it means." Bernie should get another 49 delegates and Clinton 18. So Bernie's numbers are better than what we are being led to believe.

Donald's Big Lie(s)

The list is long, but this one is a whopper that I am surprised Ted Cruze hasn’t used it to make his case against “Sleazy Donald” as he is trying to label him.

No longer 'SUCK of the TEAT' of the RICH

People running for office no longer have to suck on the teat of the rich and powerful, and receive their blessing financially inorder to win a seat in government, Bernie's campaign is proving that. This is shaking the elitist political establishment right to its foundation.

Trump's Lies Are Killing Us

Thom plus logo Donald Trump keeps insisting in his rallies, as he did last night, that he has lowered prescription drug prices, is protecting people with pre-existing conditions, and is improving Medicare. While everybody knows that he lies a lot, these are among the most pernicious lies.
