    Vermont doctors and health care professionals are pushing back against an interpretation of state law that they say requires them to help kill patients who wish to die. Members of two medical groups, the Vermont Alliance for Ethical Healthcare and Christian Medical & Dental Associations, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against officials in two state medical agencies responsible for the interpretation. The lawsuit says these agencies have interpreted a 2013 physician-assisted suicide law, Act 39, in a way that would require health care professionals to counsel terminally ill patients about the option to commit suicide. Additionally, under such an interpretation...

    After Breitbart News reported that three refugees in Vermont have been diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) over the past seven months, an official with the Vermont Department of Health admitted that a total of fifteen refugees in the Green Mountain State were diagnosed with active TB between 2003 and 2015. Since only 6,300 refugees have arrived in Vermont over the past twenty-five years, these new statistics reveal a third-world level of active TB among the refugees currently residing in the Green Mountain State.

    If you had any questions about how antiwar liberals were going to respond when the Democrats didn't withdraw American troops from Iraq like they promised during the 2006 campaign, you got your answers last night on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." When the host moved the discussion to what the panel thought of "the Democrats, you know, caving in on this Iraq spending bill," actor Ben Affleck went on a tirade about these "f***ing people," saying that the "Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards" and of "looking like p***ies."

    Bernie Sanders supporters lost a debate over international trade that divided Democrats during a meeting in Orlando on Saturday to draft their party platform. Sanders supporters had hoped the party's official position statement for 2016 would include language explicitly rejecting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, while backers of Hillary Clinton, the presumptive nominee, argued for softer language. Both presidential candidates oppose the controversial trade agreement, but it was championed by President Barack Obama, leaving the party in an awkward position.

Today FBI Director James Comey described Hillary Clinton's email communications as Secretary of State as "extremely careless." His statement undermined the defenses Clinton put forward, stating the FBI found 110 emails on Clinton's server that were classified at the time they were sent or received; eight contained information classified at the highest level, "top secret," at the time they were sent. That stands in direct contradiction to Clinton's repeated insistence she never sent or received any classified emails....

    Extending an olive branch to Bernie Sanders and his supporters, Hillary Clinton on Wednesday will announce a plan to make in-state public colleges and universities free for students from families who make less than $125,000 a year.

    The Bern Report ^ | June 15, 2016 | Shawn Skager
    Four-time presidential candidate Ralph Nader has a bit of advice for Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders. Stay in the race. In an opinion column run this week in TIME magazine Nader said Sander should ignore cries from the Hillary Clinton campaign that he is playing the spoiler and stay in the race until at least the convention, if not longer: There are still lessons that Sanders can teach the decadent corporate Democrats for whom this 2016 campaign may be their last hurrah. It is called political energy. It is the lack of political energy that explains why the Democratic Party,...

    Barney Frank, a long serving member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts, voiced concerns regarding the safety of gay Americans, an "Islamic element" in terrorism and an increased need for surveillance and gun control. Frank spoke of the attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando this weekend in an interview with the New York Times Monday. "It's an attack against gay people but it does not reflect a general deterioration of our standing in America," he said. "It reflects the virulence of the hatred in this sector of Islam." Frank represented Massachusetts in the House for 32 years,...

    Just 712 Democratic officials will decide whether Clinton or Sanders wins the nomination. Documents show that's what the party planned all along. This post originally appeared at In These Times. Since its launch, a specter has haunted Bernie Sandersí run for the Democratic nomination. Itís not his age, though at 74 he would be the oldest president in American history. And itís not that heís an avowed socialist, the label that a mere eight years ago was used to smear Barack Obama as a sinister, alien threat to the American way of life. Rather, it has been the so-called superdelegates...

Ansari made the claim in a pre-recorded interview to air in full tonight...

    Contrary to those in the media and elsewhere who claimed he was ďfar more acceptingĒ on LGBT issues than other GOP candidates, Donald Trump is proving that he very much will be a force against LGBT equality if elected president. And heís doing it in a more insidious, under-the-radar way than any previous GOP presidential nominee. Though he rarely raises his positions against LGBT rights on the campaign trail, Trump is making pacts with anti-LGBT forces. Today, Trump spoke at the Road to the Majority summit in Washington, an event attended by Christian right activists and sponsored by the Faith...

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have yet to shore up their bases. Mrs. Clinton is looking to heal the primary wounds of rival Vermont Sen. Bernard SandersĎ and his progressive supporters, who have threatened to stay home in November. Donald Trump has had a tough time attracting the support of establishment conservatives who worry heís too centrist. And each needs their bases to coalesce in order to win the presidency. An analysis completed by The Wall Street Journal suggested since 1992, every candidate who ended up winning the White House had a favorable rating of at least 80 points among...

    About a week ago, a friend and enthusiastic Trump supporter invited me to go to a Donald Trump rally. As a Bernie Sanders supporter, my initial reaction was to reject, but after giving it some thought, I came to the conclusion that the millions of Trump voters deserved respect and had earned the right for their voices to be heard. With that in mind, here is my experience from the Donald Trump rally in San Diego, California on May 27, 2016: I was dropped off a few hundred feet away from the convention center. As I walked toward the venue,...
