Lee sits down with Jimmy Dore, political comedian and host of the “Jimmy Dore Show,” to talk the viability of the of the Draft Bernie movement and the fraudulent Democrats. As the Democrats make their move to the center and give nothing but lip service to the progressive left, what should we do to make sure that the Bernie Sanders progressive movement doesn’t die? The two also discuss how political content is being suppressed on digital media platforms like Facebook and YouTube
Head over to Jimmy Dore Comedy to help support Dore’s work, or his TYT Page (which I dont think should be labelled comedy. It has far more actual content than the TYT mainpage… but you’ve all heard me give that rant before. . In my mind he’s one of the most important political voices out there at the moment and if you can support him by buying a mug or something… I think it would be worth it. (And tell them TPW send you :])

I had made a comment this morning about the seemingly coordinated attempt to smear progressives with the term ‘Alt-Left’. Jimmy Dore has caught on as well and created a video on the topic that you can watch within the post.
After months and months of criticizing those who believe that the 24/7 focus on all things Russia by the Democratic party establishment instead of a substantive discussion of issues that actually touch on everyday lives (healthcare, jobs, clean water, police violence, and the other things that there was a big fight to put into the platform, etc..) the Party finally seems to be learning a little from its most recent losses.
Frustrated Democrats hoping to elevate their election fortunes have a resounding message for party leaders: Stop talking so much about Russia.
Democratic leaders have been beating the drum this year over the ongoing probes into the Trump administration’s potential ties to Moscow, taking every opportunity to highlight the saga and forcing floor votes designed to uncover any business dealings the president might have with Russian figures.
But rank-and-file Democrats say the Russia-Trump narrative is simply a non-issue with district voters, who are much more worried about bread-and-butter economic concerns like jobs, wages and the cost of education and healthcare.
In the wake of a string of special-election defeats, an increasing number of Democrats are calling for an adjustment in party messaging, one that swings the focus from Russia to the economy. The outcome of the 2018 elections, they say, hinges on how well the Democrats manage that shift.
“We can’t just talk about Russia because people back in Ohio aren’t really talking that much about Russia, about Putin, about Michael Flynn,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) told MSNBC Thursday. “They’re trying to figure out how they’re going to make the mortgage payment, how they’re going to pay for their kids to go to college, what their energy bill looks like.
The above statements (and others in the article) echo those made by prominent Bernie Sanders supporters for months, including Nina Turner who was applauded by Progressives but mocked by centrists for saying in May:
“we definitely have to deal with” allegations of Russian interference in the election, “it’s on the minds of American people, but if you want to know what people in Ohio—they want to know about jobs, they want to know about their children.” As for Russia, she said, “We are preoccupied with this, it’s not that this is not important, but every day Americans are being left behind because it’s Russia, Russia, Russia.”
The poll of 1,008 registered voters was conducted March 12 to 14. It found that 43 percent approve and 51 percent disapprove of the job Trump is doing as president, with 30 percent strongly approving and 45 percent strongly disapproving. Respondents were also asked to say if they had a favorable or unfavorable opinion of several people, groups, and items, and Sanders came out on top, with 61 percent having a favorable reaction and 32 percent unfavorable, followed by Planned Parenthood (57 percent favorable, 32 percent unfavorable); ObamaCare (50 percent favorable, 47 percent unfavorable); and Pence (47 percent favorable, 43 percent unfavorable). Only 44 percent had a favorable view of Trump, while 53 percent had an unfavorable view.
One example of why that may be:
