My cell reception is pretty spotty out in the rural areas but we’ll be settling down for some rest/relaxation tomorrow afternoon at a place with wifi and all the works so I’ll use that time to get some pictures posted. Ive been wearing my Beto shirts in my journeys and have gotten pretty good feedback in both west texas and out of state!


I know some of you arent quite sold on Beals and I can understand that, but I admit to trusting his ‘progressiveness’ quite a bit given all the media I’ve taken in, videos/debates watched, and some conversations on twitter. Would certainly hate to be wrong but am hoping I’m right and he does well.


Im sure the articles been posted (and maybe even the tweet) but I think the best thing about this is the picture used by newsweek in the tweet. Its a meme killer.


Trump considering clemency for Blagojevich, Stewart

President Trump on Thursday said he is considering commuting the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) and pardoning TV personality Martha Stewart.

Trump’s comments come hours after he pardoned conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza, who pleaded guilty to a felony campaign finance violation. Last week, the president offered a posthumous pardon for the boxer Jack Johnson.

Trump told reporters in his private cabin aboard Air Force One he believes Blagojevich was “being stupid” but added that “every other politician” has done it and that his sentence is excessive.

“Eighteen years is, I think, really unfair,” Trump said, misstating the length of his prison term. “It’s a Democrat. You know D’Souza’s a Republican. And I’m seriously thinking about it.”


If Trump thinks this will help win some indie voters in IL, it ain’t happening.




Bill Clinton disputes Dem senator’s claim that he should have resigned after Lewinsky scandal

Former President Bill Clinton waved off Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) assertion that he should have stepped down after his inappropriate relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky went public.

In an interview on “CBS Sunday Morning” set to air this week, Clinton said Gillibrand’s comment, which appeared in an interview with The New York Times last year, did not take into account the “context” of his decision to stay in office.

“You have to really ignore what the context was,” Clinton told CBS’s Mo Rocca. “But, you know, she’s living in a different context. And she did it for different reasons. But I just disagree with her.”


In his interview with CBS, Clinton says he knew the impeachment would not succeed.

“It wasn’t a pleasant experience,” he said. “But it was a fight that I was glad to undertake after the elections, when the people had solidly told, by two-thirds or more, the Republicans to stop it. They knew there was nothing impeachable. And so, we fought it to the end. And I’m glad.”


While I have a couple minutes I’ll rant about the story going around about Trumps campaign hiring the leader of ‘black men for bernie’ to campaign for him. To me thats just good strategy and not reflective of Sanders supporters as a whole as some of course make it out to be. They turned ‘enemies’ into allies. If the Clinton campaign had reached out to leading promoters of Bernie instead of continuing to trash them/shut them out at the DNC, etc etc.., things may have been very different. I know after the BNR I never heard from them (and to be fair, Bernie’s either).


The great fact about the Sanders Campaign are the issues. He ran on them and ‘walked the walk.’ There are more choices to vote for this year. Medicare for All, Climate Change, Eliminating horrendous college debt, Restore a Progressive Income Tax Policy, Legalize Pot and take it off the Controlled Substance List–young folks are running on these issues at all political levels. They are winning, too. 🙂


Jamarl’s perspective on the “black men for Bernie” issue.


While I don’t see any connection between this individual’s actions and the rest of Bernie’s supporters, I have no use for anyone who advocated for Bernie and then turned around to advocate for that racist, misogynist, xenophobic, scumbag Trump.
