Bernie won his adopted home state of VT 86.1% to 13.6%

We should see a similar margin for Hillary in NY tonight right? If not, why not?

Newly released emails on assault and ejection of veteran from Clinton speech


This week marks five years since former Army officer, ex-CIA analyst and peace activist Ray McGovern was brutally ejected and arrested at George Washington University for expressing silent dissent during a speech by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in which she lectured other countries about the importance of public protest and freedom of speech. Mr. McGovern's charges of disorderly conduct were dropped.

PCJF Executive Director Mara Verheyden-Hilliard stated, "Secretary Clinton's tolerance of the forceful ejection of Mr. McGovern, for merely turning his back in silent protest, foreshadowed Donald Trump's active encouragement of use of force against peaceful protestors at his events, including the ejection of a Muslim woman who stood silently just last month."

Verheyden-Hilliard continued, "If Secretary Clinton wishes to distinguish herself from these tactics, for which she has laid the groundwork, she can begin by apologizing to Mr. McGovern and promising to respect peaceful dissent even when her policies are being criticized."


I can't wait for Rachel Maddow's interview with Hillary tonight! I am just so sure she asked her about this. I mean, she must have asked her, right?

Clinton's College Plan is a fantasy

Clinton's proposal for debt-free college is completely unrealistic. There is no way this plan could get through Congress and there is no way that Republican governors would provide the funding that her plan relies on. Does she really think governors like Scott Walker are going to put up the funds to help her plan succeed? Does she really believe Paul Ryan and the Republican congress will pass a massive tax increase to pay for it? Does she know that the president doesn't have the power to raise taxes and increase spending?

Relying on state funding:

States will have to step up and meet their obligation to invest in higher education by maintaining current levels of higher education funding and reinvesting over time.

Taxes and spending:
This plan will cost around $350 billion over 10 years—and will be fully paid for by limiting certain tax expenditures for high-income taxpayers.

What's next? Promising everyone a brand new car and a pony?
