I am watching it now. Jane seems to handing wolf quite well.


What a jerk Wolf is. As if no one else in the whole world has ever said something bad about Trump.


It is a wonder that Wolf didn’t ask if they ever had the shooter over for diner.


How many right wingnuts have gone out to try to shoot “libruls” or others they disagreed with, and it’s always just a “lone wolf”, a disturbed individual, etc. But let someone who worked for a Democratic campaign do something sick, and it’s open season. The wingers do not recognize irony when it hits them with a 2×4.

I wonder if the guy was a Viet Nam vet. A lot of the older guys have undiagnosed/untreated PTSD, and no one has ever addressed it much. The dude had issues of some kind, obviously. Most lefties do NOT have any intention of acting out in violent ways.


Domestic violence is a common denominator for many who commit mass violent attacks:


In April 2006, police records show Hodgkinson went to a neighbor’s house looking for his daughter and “used bodily force to damage” a wooden door upstairs. Witnesses said Hodgkinson forced his way into the home looking for his teenage daughter and grabbed her by the hair when he found her upstairs, according to a police narrative on file with St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department.

His daughter escaped and got into the neighbor’s car, but Hodgkinson opened the door of the car, pulled out a pocket knife and cut off the seat belt she was wearing, records show. Hodgkinson’s wife joined him, struggling to pull out their daughter, as Hodgkinson punched the neighbor who was in the driver’s seat of the car in the face, witnesses told police.

Later, Joel Fernandez, the boyfriend of the woman who was punched, went to Hodgkinson’s home to confront him. He said Hodgkinson “walked outside with a shotgun and aimed it at Fernandez face,” a complaint states. Hodgkinson struck Fernandez on the side of his face with the wooden stock of the shotgun and fired off one round as Fernandez ran away.

Police arrested Hodgkinson and his wife and charged them with domestic battery and aggravated discharge of a firearm, according to a narrative obtained by The Washington Post. Police also recovered a 12-gauge shotgun. The county clerk’s online database shows the charges were later dismissed.

He “accidentally” ran over the neighbor’s dog who was sleeping in the driveway after that

The shooter was a pathetic seriously brain/mentally ill nutcase who also liked Ted Cruz. I’m sure bozo Blitzer didn’t ask Jane about that one. An inconvenient fact, y’know! T and R, Benny!!


I’m sure it came as no shock to Jane that Blitzer would go there and she was prepared.


Ironic considering that so many liberals often accuse Bernie of being not sufficiently critical of Trump.

Also, from what I have heard so far, the shooter was mad about Russia. So why aren’t they on Rachel Maddow’s case with her 24-7 anti-Russia schtick?



Joy Reid has been all over the Twitter lately and saying outrageous things about Bernie and his followers. She is to be ignored.
PS Also Joan Walsh, they are like a team.


I more or less agree with your assessment of those two. I would say that there comments should be taken with a grain of salt considering from where they come.


Another way of dealing with the likes of them is by means of parody sites like this one.

BTW it helps in getting over the disgust of such vile comments.


wolf blitzer is an idiot.
He had no clue what Jane was talking about.
Wow, she maintained her composure and articulated, very eloquently, exactly what is wrong with the media.
Wolf doesn’t get it. he can’t understand that CNN et al showing non stop donald trump reality show all through 2016 while ignoring the issues has brought us to where we are now.

Jane Sanders shone in this interview!

Thanks Benny for posting this.


Strong language alert (but worth it):


“Not you personally”. Love it too


Over at C99, there is a report that TOP is purging Bernie supporters. I don’t know if that is true, but their site traffic has declined 100% since Sept 2016 and 33% since April 2017. No wonder they keep sending me emails begging for money.

If Subir is still able to post there, I’m somewhat skeptical about a purge. I would think DK would like all the clicks generated by posters arguing uselessly with other posters. I think it’s more of a self purge as people have better things to spend their time on.


It wasn’t massive but a number of long time users have been bojo’d. Some of whom have not commented lately.


Let the primary battles keep coming!


I think this time he will beat her and then, hopefully, we will be rid of her. Maybe I just may return to the Dem party but not really very likely.


Tim block interview at the Summit with Paula Jean Swearengin.


Trump has high standards before making appointments! LOL


President Trump chooses inexperienced woman who planned his son Eric’s wedding to run N.Y. federal housing programs.

She’s arranged tournaments at Trump golf courses, served as the liaison to the Trump family during his presidential campaign, and even arranged Eric Trump’s wedding.

Now President Trump has appointed longtime loyalist Lynne Patton — who has zero housing experience and claims a law degree the school says she never earned — to run the office that oversees federal housing programs in New York.

Patton was appointed Wednesday to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.


Senate Attacks Russian Civilians With Sanctions In Order To Effect Regime Change In Moscow

This new development should ring odd in everyone’s ears for a number of reasons, including the fact that Russia’s actions in Crimea and Syria have been wholly justified, the fact that America has admitted to having meddled far more extensively and efficaciously in Russia’s elections in 1996, and the fact that the people most significantly impacted by economic sanctions are not a nation’s politicians but its civilians. Perhaps the nastiest thing about these added sanctions, however, is the fact that these xenophobic, demagogic anti-Russia Capitol Hill politicians have already been admitting that the end goal of these punitive election-meddling sanctions is to effect regime change in Moscow.


A different type of collateral damage.


Nothing better than a snarky tweet.


Hubby saw that this morning and said, “Uh oh, they’re giving up on trying to get us to buy crappy electronics and trying to corner the food market now!”

Then I saw a tweet from a tech company that basically said, “Amazon’s march towards world dominance continues!”.

Since I worry about pretty much everything, I worry about this. I expect Amazon to move toward buying up all of the fresh water next..


Those damn Russians! They might have beat us to him.


So when will Russia get the $10 million bounty from the U.S.?


Sanctions, is what we give them.


Sanctions arranged by giving Repubs their much-desired sanctions on Iran that effectively torpedoed Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, potentially making the world less safe.


Good one. LOL


I bet you can’t guess what the verdict is!



Or maybe you can guess what the verdict will be here.


Wolf Blitzer is a (barely) animate mass of protoplasm furthering an establishment story. Yes, Bernie Sanders is exhorting people to violence. Sure.


Apparently when the R’s voted to allow the mentally ill to have guns without a background check they figured nothing would happen to them, So much for that.
We now know the $$$ and the support from the NRA is more important to them than their own lives potentially. This will happen again unfortunately I hate to say that but with 300 million + guns in this country and millions of undiagnosed people with mental disorders favor it.


I think that things are starting to get to The Tweeter in Chief. LOL!


President Trump has been described by advisers and confidents as angry over the probe into possible ties between his campaign and Russia, yelling at television sets at the White House with coverage of the probe, according to an Associated Press report Friday.

Trump has been insisting that he is the target of a conspiracy to discredit and possibly end his presidency, according to the report.

The president has publicly lamented the Russia probe in recent tweets, calling it a “witch hunt” in various tweets.


They better make it faster. He might not be around that long.


The United States Commission on Civil Rights will launch a two-year probe into civil rights offices throughout President Trump’s administration to examine their ability to function.

The bipartisan federal watchdog voted unanimously to undertake a two-year investigation into the “degree to which current budgets and staffing levels allow civil rights offices to perform” in Trump’s administration.

In a statement, the commission expressed concerns that the Trump administration’s proposed budget cuts to civil rights offices across the federal governments “would result in a dangerous reduction of civil rights enforcement across the country, leaving communities of color, LGBT people, older people, people with disabilities, and other marginalized groups exposed to greater risk of discrimination.”


I must really only be a coincidence. HA!
