    Ask a hundred U.S. citizens what the country needs more than anything and you’re likely to get a hundred answers. An end to poverty, an end to racism, an end to terrorism, free college, an end to liberals, an end to conservatives, an end to climate change, a balanced budget, and on and on. Most responses would be likely be well-meaning, pie-in-the-sky fantasies with little forethought as nearly all of us are inclined to do now and again. Including me.

    Washington Post ^ | 4/22/2016 | Kathleen Parker
    This month, having lost massively to Hillary Clinton across the Southeast, Sanders commented that the bevy of early Southern primaries “distorts reality.” In other comments soon thereafter, perhaps covering for what was obviously a lapse in political acumen, he clarified that those early states are the most conservative in the country. Not really. And not really. While some segments of the South are undeniably conservative, Dixie is also home to a large and reliably Democratic cohort — African Americans. Many of the most liberal people serving in today’s Congress were elected by Southerners, and especially black Southerners. The reality is...

    What if all isn’t as it seems? What if the reality you found is completely false and contradictory to the reality you are told exists? The stories that now predominate the news headlines in America are not actually news at all. What passes for the news today is nothing more than carefully constructed narratives created by unseen special interests designed to manipulate your opinion while pushing an artificial agenda. This is the essence of what veteran investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson defines as astroturf. Attkisson explains that astroturf disguises itself as being legitimate while in actuality it’s not as astroturf is...

Also, Jackson isn’t getting completely booted off the $20 bill. He’s likely to remain on the...

    Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen.Bernie Sanders was invited to Vatican City to make a speech about income inequality. Despite the Vatican initially saying there would be no meeting between Sanders and Pope Francis, one happened anyway Saturday morning. Because of the political nature of the meeting, the Vatican initially had tried to distance itself from Sanders' visit, reports CBS News correspondent Seth Doane. But the Pope did meet Sanders and his wife in a brief meeting. On a terrace overlooking Vatican City, Sanders told CBS News "beauty" "resonated" from Pope Francis.

Nearly five years since Occupy was evicted from Zuccotti Park, blocks from the New York Stock Exchange in lower Manhattan, a coalition of organizers, labor leaders and progressive activists who lined up under the banner of "the 99 percent" are renewing their efforts in pursuit of a more traditional cause: Getting voters to the polls on April 19.

    Ratcheting up the rhetoric another notch ahead of Thursday's debate and next week's New York primary, Bernie Sanders’ campaign on Tuesday turned its focus back to Hillary Clinton’s past opposition to driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants. During a conference call organized by the Sanders team, an array of activists, public officials and an undocumented farm worker supporting the Vermont senator laid into Clinton’s record on immigration writ large. In particular, the call’s stated purpose was to center on Clinton’s 2007 stated opposition to then-New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s proposal to allow undocumented immigrants to get driver’s licenses.

    Sources close to the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton's email are knocking down suggestions that 147 federal agents are working on the case, a figure first reported — and now revised — by the Washington Post, citing a lawmaker. The Post updated the figure on Tuesday, stating that while the "FBI will not provide an exact figure," there are "fewer than 50" FBI personnel involved in the case. But a former federal law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the Clinton investigation tells MSNBC an estimate anywhere near 50 agents is also off base.

Gross, who was jailed in 2009, was eventually released in December 2014. “I had the impression that Bernie didn’t see that there was so much...

Hungary was a popular pathway for refugees on their way to Germany during the fall. When the daily illegal border crossings were at 7,000 per day, Prime Minister Viktor Orban decided to erect a fence along the border to Serbia and Croatia. The result speaks for itself: When the fence went up Oct. 17, the influx went down to 870 from 6,353 only a day earlier. Illegal border crossing were steadily below 40 per day throughout the...

He specifically called it “absurd” that a portion of Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu’s government suggested increased settlements in the West Bank and added that it was “unacceptable” that they had withheld tax revenue from Palestinians. He talked about water and economic rights for Palestinians and said ending the economic blockade of Gaza would also be necessary for sustainable peace.

Sanders's comments at a campaign rally here were directed at long-serving Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who prides himself on being “America’s toughest sheriff” and operates an infamous “tent city” jail where inmates endure extreme outdoor heat.

As senator, he’s caucused with Democrats and currently seeks the Democratic Party’s nod for the White House.

With many comparisons drawn between the candidacies — and followers — of Sanders and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, the issue of aggressive political passion has become more heated than at any other point in this election.

Clinton said that she backs opening relations with Cuba, viewing it as a way to bring democracy to the island nation. She called Raul and Fidel Castro "authoritarian and dictatorial." Maria Elena Salinas tweaked the question for Sanders, noting that in the 1980s he had offered praise for Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega (who is once again leader of Nicaragua) and...

    There's still a chance that Marco Rubio could secure the Republican nomination as the U.S. presidential candidate for 2016, with John Kasich as his running mate. My prediction, while seemingly improbable (though certainly no more so than if you had predicted Donald Trump would become the Republican front runner and discuss his manhood at a GOP debate) comes after careful consideration of the Florida senator's operations and ground game in Florida.

    Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is moving hard into Florida, where the senator from Texas hopes to knock out rival Sen. Marco Rubio and position himself as the only last alternative to front-runner Donald Trump. Cruz’s campaign announced Friday that it is opening 10 field offices in Florida, which holds a Republican primary March 15. Trump has a big lead in the polls there, but Cruz’s campaign thinks it can increase its support in the state by appealing to conservatives and positioning the candidate as an alternative to Trump. “We recognize that it’s an uphill battle for us, but it becomes...

A 1,400 word opinion using anonymous names was issued by the court last week, but the media only figured out who it was this week. The ruling states it was the "clearly...

    Donald Trump has added a press conference at his Mar-A-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., on Super Tuesday, fueling speculations of another high-profile endorsement.

Rick Scott could announce his support of Trump at the press conference, which is scheduled two weeks before Florida's Republican primary. Scott has not yet endorsed a candidate, but the two-term governor praised Trump's ability to attract frustrated Republican voters in an op-ed published in January by USA Today.

    Zionist Organization of America president Morton Klein is urging Bernie Sanders to personally apologize because one of his economic advisers said on Wednesday blacks and Latinos suffered a “financial Holocaust” under Barack Obama. Klein said Sanders has a “unique obligation” to not let surrogates “trivialize” the Shoah because the secular Jewish socialist lost many family members to Nazi persecution. Klein contended that law professor William Black, who dropped the H-bomb during a campaign conference call with reporters, should have just called Obama’s economic policies “disastrous.”
