Bernie Sanders supporters disrupt Hillary Clinton rally (KABC)

A group of Bernie Sanders supporters and other protesters disrupted an appearance by Hillary Clinton in southern California.

The Democratic presidential frontrunner was repeatedly interrupted Thursday as she spoke to a largely Latino crowd in Monterey Park, where Union del Barrio organized a protest against Clinton over her immigration policies and opposition to a national $15 hourly minimum wage, reported KNBC-TV.

Clinton warned that Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, would create a “deportation force to round up millions of people” — but her opponents remained unconvinced by her message.

“She would do absolutely nothing to help the middle class,” said Cilena Aziz, a Sanders supporter.

Protesters chanting, “she’s not with us,” forced Clinton to cut short her scheduled speech to just 14 minutes — and signaled she may have a difficult time rallying Sanders supporters behind her campaign if she wins the Democratic nomination.

“I believe that being a Democrat is for the people,” said Regina Cruz, a Sanders supporter. “I have a really difficult time believing that she is really for the people.”

Clinton also met with a group of politically influential black pastors at the California African American Museum in Exposition Park and then attended a fundraiser hosted by Jose Huizar, a Los Angeles city councilman.

She has said a strong showing in California’s June 7 primary could put her on the path to winning November’s general election and push her opponent out of the Democratic primary race.

“I am 3 million-plus votes ahead of Senator Sanders, right?” Clinton said in Exposition Park. “I am nearly 300 pledged delegates ahead of Senator Sanders.”

Experts: Lawsuit heading to Supreme Court would lead to ‘massive’ transfer of wealth from middle-class to richest Americans

Published

on

The Republican lawsuit that seeks to strike down the Affordable Care Act would save the richest one-tenth of 1 percent of Americans an average of $198,000 per year, according to an analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

The case, which was initiated by 18 state attorneys general and backed by the Trump administration, is scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court a week after the November election. A Texas judge ruled in 2018 that the entire Obamacare law was unconstitutional, after the Republican-led Congress eliminated the individual mandate penalty in its 2017 tax bill and an appeals court then sent the case back for the judge to decide whether the entire law needed to be struck down.

Why is the Trump campaign sending rent checks to a mysterious Long Island PO box?

Published

on

President Donald Trump has charged his own campaign hundreds of thousands of dollars in rent for offices in Trump Tower for more than five years. But the campaign doesn't always send its rent to Trump Tower. In fact, most of the checks have gone to a post office box in Hicksville, New York, a suburban community on Long Island. It's not clear why, or who is receiving those checks. But experts say that the address may be of interest to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who in a court filing earlier this week made his clearest statements yet about the scope and focus of his criminal investigation into President Trump's finances.
