EV Freedom Act is big, bold and progressive AND has the buy-in necessary to get it passed. President...

QANON AND THE REAGAN HOMELESS

6/9/2021
Angelo Carusone from Media Matters joins Thom to share what he's learned tracking qAnon- how has the group metastasized since Q himself stopped posting?

And at the same time, new data shows that the very rich are setting their own records for how little tax they are paying. Could taxing the morbidly wealthy be used to care for the most vulnerable among us? Or will the right succeed in using...

There’s literally no philosophy Trump holds — other than one single idea — that truly matters to the vast majority of the Republicans who support him.

6/1/2021
What's it going to take for Americans to abandon the macho fantasy of a good guy with a gun? When Is American going to realize that Trump buddies are still working to destroy America?

That’s what Trump...

IF TRUMP IS INDICTED WILL THE MAGATS ATTACK?

5/26/2021
