Today MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell interviewed Former Director of Media Relations for the Bob Dole campaign, Andrew Weinstein. After he organized an anti-Trump petition, the subsequent anti-Semitic attacks and threats he received from the “alt-right” movement were utterly horrific. Please watch all the way through: And what was GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump's directive to these bottom-feeders when asked how he felt about their vile outbursts and death threats? "I don't have a message for my fans." His hateful "fans" ran with that (at about 4:10 in the video). And so the Clinton campaign is also running with their own message. Here is brand spankin' [...]
Yesterday, I talked about working out the conflicts of our inner voices, though some people thought I "went too far." Others thanked me for being "spot on." All I know is all I know. Today, it's that the world continues down its pathway of madness. People hear what they want to hear instead of actually listening to what's being said. We talk past one another instead of with each other. Until we learn to shut up and listen, we're bound to continue making the same mistakes. Today, I talked a bit about that disconnect. I praised the celebration of [...]

As the racial divide in this nation (and even among Dems) seems to be growing, I thought today was a good time to pull out a speech from Rev. Dr. William Barber. I spoke with him and about him often last year, after getting to see him speak a few times. We need a good dose of Barber-isms, so get ready. Also, Ted Rall with an update on his run-in with the LAPD that got him fired from the LA Times!
Proving the old adage "Trust No One," there are two news stories that rely on deceptively edited videos to smear a person (Sandra Bland) and an organization (Planned Parenthood). Fellow Americans, you've reached a new all-time low. Deborah Newell Tornello is back for another installment of Oy, FloriDUH, and a political novice - Dr. Alina Valdes - runs for Congress.
Another snark-filled guest post by the one, the only Will Durst: DIXIE MACARONI Since reintroduced on the grounds of the South Carolina Capitol in 1961 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, the Confederate Flag has been the source of controversy with a regularity approaching that of a Madonna comeback album. Sadly, it has been thrust into the news once more because some kid who loved it went crazy and committed an atrocity. A racially charged atrocity. Yes. Again. Proponents of the flag fiercely insist it is not a racist symbol of slavery but a banner [...]

Nicole discusses what happens when you combine the confederate flag with racism and guns... it happened in an African American church in Charleston, SC. Guests are media strategist Joel Silberman and the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Dan Gross
