        I vote by mail. Sent in my vote on Monday last week. I really don’t like the California open primary ballot. For Example: You had to pick a candidate from 25 candidates,11 of those were Democrats. The ballot for the U.S. Senate was even worse: 32 candidates, of those ten were Democrats.

    SWAT team busts into home of Parkland teen David Hogg after hoax hostage call
    05 JUN 2018 AT 10:23 ET

    A SWAT team entered the home of Stoneman Douglas shooting survivor and activist David Hogg on Tuesday morning after a hoax emergency call.

    Media outlet Local10 reported that Broward Sheriff’s Office received a call claiming a hostage situation at the house.

    The caller said that someone broke into the home with an AR-15 rifle and was holding the family at gunpoint.

    A SWAT team surrounded the property before entering the home, according to NBC Miami. No one was home at the time.

      And thankfully, President Obama worked hard to start a revolution which Trump cannot destroy. #Resist.

    Trump has a new FAUX twitter blaming Dems for HIS EXPLICITLY ENFORCED policy of separating parents, children and babies at the border. (While isolating the ones he has not already lost track of like inaccessible criminals — looks highly suspicious.)
    Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to get himself elected. He is a traitor. That is the real news. Come on Twitter!

    Pull back the curtain on the KOCH brothers.
    David Koch and his $60 billion are stepping away from the heat after helping Russia to elect Trump and funding the Tea Party with the help of Exxon/Tillerson. Koch’s father helped Stalin and Hitler set up their first oil pipelines. Putin has been pushing Trump to run for office for decades. Now you have DOC-R1 Yakunin and the “Kremlin’s main propaganda ‘factory’ in the West” and the United States Ambassador to Germany (Richard Grenell) says he wants to empower far right wing anti-establishment movements in Europe. The KOCH brothers have the melting of Earth’s poles, enriching themselves on decades of dis-education and deprivation of American citizens, the deaths of those deprived of medical attention and preventive care, and now the fallout of their super-greedy self-interested election of this monster Trump on..their…filthy…backs.

      David Koch is reportedly stepping down due to ill health. I don’t usually wish ill health on anyone, but I must say it’s about time. I wish the same on his brother.

      • June 5, 2018 at 3:15 pm

        If I’d done the things David Koch did to bring about the current planetary state of affairs – I wouldn’t be feeling so good either.
        KOCH brothers have operated on the entitled belief that the oligarchs can control our future:
        Pull back the curtain on their Putin ties!!

      I thought susanne said she was ok and not near the lava flow…

      • June 5, 2018 at 7:04 pm

        Yes, that’s correct. She checked in couple weeks ago……right before we left on our trip which was last Sunday. Think it was 2 or 3 days before that because I remember telling my husband she had checked in and was okay. It was when we were watching a report on the volcano.

    Bill Clinton was saying that media was softer on president Obama than him because they liked having a black man in the white house. I really believe that if Hilary won
    the election, both of them and the media would have undermined president Obama.

      Stop talking, Bill. You’re embarrassing yourself.

      Barack got and maintained the true love, respect, and admiration from millions that Bill, another ego maniac who can never be filled, always wanted and courted. One commentator compared Bill to a dog that always kept coming around for attention. PBO did not have to do do or be anything other than himself to draw millions. The work of caring for people, being kind like his mother taught him and trying to make our union more perfect are the thing that have motivated his public life. Bill was about ego and at times you never knew what he stood for. He took our love and loyalty for granted and debased it. Now we have the real thing in PBO and Bill cannot stand it. The last few days have shown that Bill has not grown at all since leaving the white house. Still petty, still making excuses and losing his temper, still trying anything (this time so-called writing with James Patterson who does not need a co-writer, to get out in the public again. He had to know that the media was not going to let him come on their shows and just talk about this book. As much as I hate everything that is going on, Bill would have been a big distraction for Hillary if she had become president.

      thanks…but who are the Dems with the best chance of winning…

      • June 5, 2018 at 9:31 pm

        That’s what we’re looking to see……..it’s a jungle for most of those seats. The few races where it’s crucial that the Dems vote for the most popular to avoid locking us out of the running are:

        Andrew Janz in the 22nd.
        Harley Rouda in the 48th.
        Michael Levin in the 49th.

    • June 5, 2018 at 9:34 pm

      ALSO, some mistakes on this chart:

      Ami Bera and Josh Gottheimer are both Democrats.

    GOP Sessions covered up today about legal petitions for asylum:
    1. Sessions admitted that Trump’s life-risking policy to separate parent and child at the border is to punish and deter.
    2. His statements contradict HHS Nielsen who stated repeatedly in Congress to Senator Harris that it was not to deter but to “enforce” the law.
    3. Sessions chose to ignore & cover up that some of the horrifying parent-baby separations recently reported happened despite the fact that they
    were legal petitions for asylum. Release our children!
