Senator Bernie Sanders gives an angry response to a rude CNN reporter during an interview about the proposed Democratic Party filibuster of the Gorsuch nomination, for US Supreme Court. This reporter seems hell-bent on focusing on the term "filibuster" more than she does about the fact that the Senate leadership, led by Mitch McConnell want to change the present rule, which requires a 60 vote majority in order to confirm any Supreme Court nominee. Senator Sanders calls her out on her insistence on focusing on the proposed filibuster.

A House committee in the state of Minnesota voted in favor of a bill that would force demonstrators to pay for law enforcement, at political demonstrations. In other words, people would have to pay for the right to express their opinions under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

An interview with a Trump supporter at a pro-Muslim support demonstration at an airport. After listening to this dumb ass, it's easy to see why the United States is going down the toilet. Hopefully, this guys mentality, or lack thereof, is not typical or representative of the average person.

A former CIA deputy director says that the travel ban on Muslims will make it less safe for American citizens. He also makes a point of saying that to allow Steve Bannon, advisor to Donald Trump, on to the National Security Council is unprecedented and a threat to national security because it brings a political element into the decision-making process of the National Security Council.

As a person with a lifelong disability, this woman's attitude about children with disabilities receiving an education is extremely scary. Her mentality belongs somewhere back in the 1920s.

If people like her would have been in control of the educational system, back when I was a kid, I would not even know how to read or write. She is basically openly advocating for discrimination against people with disabilities. She is unfit to serve as Secretary of Education.
