The Future Of The Democratic Party, According To The Bernie Sanders Wing

quote [ This is perhaps an uncomfortable question for a lot of Democrats, but do you think the Democratic Party was too top-heavy on cultural issues and was not paying enough attention to core economic messaging? And tied into that ? how does the party balance civil rights issues, gay rights issues while also trying to put the pedal to the metal on appealing to the working class that in some places, black or white, doesn?t share certain progressive cultural values? ]

It is all about the money!!

Still not sure how this all ends up.

Well looks like this is either a story about another Whitehouse leak or shock that this would even cross their minds.

quote [ Trump Administration May Mobilize National Guard To Round Up Unauthorized Immigrants

White House press secretary Sean Spicer called the report ?100% false.? ]

The headline is clickbate, but it does look like this was talked about as an actual strategy. Doesn't shock me as I think this is part of their strategy all along.

Confirmed: Donald Trump to rally in Melbourne on Saturday

quote [ President Donald Trump will appear at a rally that begins at 5 p.m. Saturday at Orlando Melbourne International Airport.

Trump-related merchandise will be sold at this event. ]

And for his first trick - he will shove an egg up his ass and call himself a chicken.

Checking into a hospital for mental evaluation would be better.

Kid Rock Being Discussed as Potential Senate Candidate: Report

quote [ Kid Rock name has reportedly been thrown out as a potential Republican contender for Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow's Senate seat next year.

In the past, Rock has been a vocal supporter of Republican candidates, having described his politics as "more libertarian." Last year, Rock got behind Donald Trump's winning presidential bid to perform at the Republican National Convention and in 2012 he performed at a Mitt Romney rally in Michigan during his run for President. He even began selling Donald Trump merchandise in his online store, including shirts that read "God, Guns & Trump" and "Make America Badass Again" hats. ]

Oh sure - why the hell not. Nothing is too stupid, idiotic, or silly to possibly happen here anymore.

The Anarchists vs. the Islamic State

quote [ On the front lines of Syria with the young American radicals, anarchists fighting ISIS, Islamic State.

To Belden, it looked like a post-9/11 reprise of the Spanish Civil War. In place of the anarchists and communists of the Popular Front, you had the Syrian Kurds, with their nearly identical anti-capitalist ideology; and in place of Franco, the Catholic fascist dictator, you had ISIS, the ultimate religious conservatives. The motto of the Spanish Republic was No Pasarn! The motto of Rojava: No State/No Caliphate. ]

Idealistic Western Lefties, helping the Kurds fight Isis and organize a socialist, feminist, egalitarian society.

It's like the Occupy movement, with Kalashnikovs.

A long read, but good, on-the-spot reporting.
