    Jimmy Dore was for Ro Khanna's position, eh? How about when Ro mentioned that President Assad is a "killer" and other propaganda? Listen Jimmy: Ro is an Obama in the making and I suspect that he is just as much a neoliberal, perhaps a neocon too. Liberals and 'progressives' deserve what they reap. Capiche?

    Seems Stein and Kshama Sawant were excluded though they wanted to go. Sorry, Jimmy, but this is highly problematic. Obviously it was progressive as in "progressive gatekeeper", which I suppose has its place, but are you really down with it?

    Let's take back the lexicon from the "neoliberals", who are really fascists! We have a fascist infestation in this country, who think they can roam our congressional halls, take up permanent residence in lobbying firms and think tanks, monopolize our media and further infest state and local control. Let's just full on call all neoliberal democrats and republicans fascists to their face.

    The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascists. ~ Winston Churchill

    "I didn't have time to look into the funding, but they were ripping the Dems, so it must be cool" doesn't sound very convincing. It's just like "as long as they are against Trump, I don't care what their motives are." Dem Exit-Dem Enter-Dem Exit-Dem Enter is ridiculous at this point.

If you're as fed up with Maher feeding bullshit to his viewers while discussing the current state of politics, having someone like Jimmy challenge him on his own turf would be the most awesome example of punching up that I can imagine.

    "Democratic Party" is a mere label. Very few voting Dems, nor voting GOP party members are pure democrats nor pure conservatives from an ideological standpoint. These are simply convenient labels just as "neoliberal" is, and are used to conveniently label individuals because one lacks actual point by point good arguments.

    The issue wasn't the people who attended. The issue was dark money. There is no way you can refute that. Dark money is what got us here in the first place. CIA plot? It's public info. Glad to see good ppl get together, however, they uninvited Black lives Matter, several disabled individuals were turned away. Wasn't this supposed to be inclusive? This a legit argument. What Jordan did to smear other journalists was totally fucked up. Never seen a journalist do that before. If you are for policy, it's probably a good idea to fact check where that d-money is coming from. There is no spin to that. Jimmy- do better

    isn't taking up arms against the government part of the reason behind the 2nd amendment? Its not crazy if it's part of our constitution. if you say its crazy, then you're saying the constitution of the United States is crazy and should be dismissed the same way. we now have a government that is actively seeking to endanger the lives of most Americans and their children all to make themselves and their corporate bosses more wealthy than they already are. Laws in some states are being proposed to opress and in some cases, kill peaceful protesters. what is a person to do when their own government is trying to take away their health insurance, resulting in their death or the death of their family? was that man crazy, or just desperate? Or was he taking advantage of his constitutional right. the government we have today is tyrannical. protesting only gets you but so far, until they decide to outlaw it and kill you. something has to give.

    The fact that three judges in Debbie Wasserman Schultz district have been killed, Jared & Elizabeth Beck and others involved in DNC Voter Fraud lawsuit/Bernie's stolen nomination/funneling of Bernie's donations into Clinton's Foundation being intimated and physically threatened with violence on top of the all the other incidents-Seth Rich & Shawn Lucas murders, Congressional shooting should make more voters wake up to the reality that the DNC and Democrats/Liberals supporting it are truly not working in Americans best interests.

    The guns have no will. People do. Relentless fake news, hate speech in art or rhetoric to incite & encourage violence, especially toward a President or political supporters does matter. I don't agree that it doesn't at all. It is sad you are pushing gun control when it would not have mattered. People get access to weapons legally or illegally. Even with previous felonies or restrictions. People need to be held accountable that push false narratives & incite violence. Period. Beating the daily war drum has consequences. C'mon Jimmy & Jordan!

  • Dave Z

    Why the left is losing:

    -You hate guns and then...
    -When you need help you call someone with a gun and then...
    -You criticize those same people you call for help and then...
    -You want higher taxes and to give those people (gov't) more power.

    You guys are pretty confused. So was I when I was a teenager and in my early to mid twenties. That is why 'progressives' go after the youth. Same reason why the military goes after the youth.

    As long as you deny these realities, you will continue to lose.

    "Energize the troops," Jordan? Would that be us? Whose troops are we, exactly? I guess we are troops belonging to some of the people at People's Summit. Are we the troops of...the directors of NGOs? the political candidates? famous activists? people who appear on TV? people who have shows? When you go to the People's Summit, how do you tell who are "the troops" and who are the leaders whose job it is to energize them?

    Oh, wow. One of the first things that gets stated in this video: "some people are never satisfied with anything." A character attack on the critics, one very close to the "purity pony" meme. Second, the "nothing is perfect" talking point. Any minute now somebody's gonna say you can't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

    Not having been there, I have no idea whether it was progressive or not, but using these memes, which are regularly used to attack both reformers and revolutionaries and basically everybody who says "The status quo is some intolerable shit," doesn't tend to make me trust the viewpoint of the one saying them.

    Could have simply addressed a few of the criticisms and disproved them on their merits, or simply disagreed with them, but no. A character attack and a broad general statement that implies that the critics are demanding perfection. Which is, I guess, also a character attack.

    There are at least 15 things on my desk alone that I could use to kill someone. Shall we ban pens, pencils, combs, ashtrays, wallets, make up mirrors, coffee cups, mason jars full of water, tweezers, cool rocks, nail polish, towels?

    None of those items have telekinesis to pick themselves up and do the job themselves- and neither does a gun. I have to do it myself.

    Here is my general take on donations from millionaires and billionaires that want to support a progressive agenda (probably rare idk). No pac money, and no we won't do your bidding, no favors and no exchanges later on. However, we will take their donations with a cap of 2500 bucks. Have at it if you want to help but don't expect anything in return as far as policy goes

  • Kate Hudson

    Here is basically a summary a butt hurt people complaining. I do think it's sinister that some Soros backed organizations (moveon.org) were sponsors. I don't really know much about him at all...however...I do know that there is an increasing number of millionaires joining progressive groups to help American workers because they see the hurt that libertarian tax causes.

    Tax cuts proposed by the current rep ruled gov cause so much harm to the lower and middle class. Some millionaires realize...oh fuck. If we don't help the population they won't work as hard and will be unhappy...and could revolt.

    It's the irony of the republican legislation. People can only be fooled for so long until they revolt and kill the profits of billionaires and millionaires. So maybe some do actually have our best interests at heart.....best to investigate it first though. We don't want to be labeled as Soros puppets...which is exactly what happened to libertarianism and the Koch bros.

  • Marc Jones
    Marc Jones 2 months ago

    We just passed a law here in WA that disallows someone from owning a gun not just if they've committed violence, but if someone (anyone) says they think someone might potentially do something to someone. In other words, people can block another person from ever being able to buy or own a gun out of retaliation or spite, or any other reason (and in a sociopathic, false-victimhood, authoritarian society there are many cases like that). For example, I was living in a house five years ago with someone that turned out to be psychopathic...and I had to get out. So I gave my 30 days notice (as per our law), and a few days later the cops came into the house, told me I had 5 minutes to pack a few things, to leave and never come back. No notice needed. Just a woman making up that she was in fear of me as soon as I said I was moving, then out on the streets with no notice or warning. Authoritarianism. Take away someone's legal rights first and ask questions later. That's what this law is. You can't possess a gun if someone accuses you of something, you can't own a gun if someone says they fear you seem "irrational" or "unreasonable." Well guess what? People are spiteful and retaliatory. Especially in America, where sociopaths and fake victims are everywhere and now forcing laws down our throats that infringe upon our rights as American citizens. DON'T TREAD ON ME AUTHORITARIAN LEFT.

    Hey Jimmy! Luv U... But I can't stand to watch Jordan anymore. I don't know if there is any reason for having Jordan on your show every other day now... but I suspect Jordan is trying to regain some of is recently lost credibility through your show. Thing is... it's having another effect... It's tainting your show. I am sorry but I don't care how important the story is... I find it unpleasant to listen to Jordan and I am certain I'm not the only one. It's just like when I used to watch TYT main show and they would bring Ben on... I had to shut it off.

    Really, So they need to take the ability of the people of this country to own a firearm. When that is the last and only defense we have against a corrupt government that tortures us, uses us for human experimentation, watches every single thing we do, runs programs for the systematic raping of women. A government that is murdering us one by one, imprisoning us and doing all types of illegal things imaginable.
    And what we struggle for is that they take a firearm from us, our only and last method of defense?
    I can tell they haven't done it to you and the people who speak like this. Because if they had you would be thinking differently.

    This summit was a masturbatory feel-good nonsense festival built by controlled opposition. Bernie's speech was littered with propaganda and more lies about Russia. It catered to romanticism and emotions instead of a rational diagnosis of our problems. If anyone feels inspired by this, congratulations, you are part of the anchor holding back progress, and you'll likely become very useful to the powers that be.

    we have a stage one communication system as a civilization. We can make it to a full stage one civilization now cause we have mechanization tech, which in effect cripples capitalism. so our vision of the future can no longer be based on past or current social systems. it seems if we do not step really far back, and correct the issues at their cores, using the known available tech and resources of the planet, the scientific method, sustainability and efficiency as the core of the entire social system, then nothing will really change. We keep going after people and policy with no real long term positive outcomes for the people or the planet that inhabit it. We have to show the different known approaches at these summits. Maybe then we could create a functioning social system for everyone. I dunno man, i know its complicated but it really doesnt seem that complicated. It kinda feels necessary at this point in time, maybe this chaos of trump is the organic path to this inevitable conclusion. i hope pence and trump dont fuck us, i know pence will take over at some point. would have been hilarious if trump picked jesse ventura as his vp, but too bad for us trump turned out to be a douche. This just seems fucked. The people really need to discuss a new approach at these summits as the entire thesis. IT is up to us, then maybe the fed and all that can be shut down for real. There is a path to this but it requires a mass following actually doing the proposed ideas. HOw and when is this going to happen is the only ?. Has too at some point. or maybe we will just have a have and have not future that eventually becomes like a mad max movie, at which point i will name my tumors ivanka, trump, and pence. We are all one, there is a unified theory that can prove this with geometry. The vector equilibrium, look into it while you have a free internet. if the corporations can censor the net, we will have full fascism. The net is literally the only reason the people are not in check mate. We have to start knowing and stop believing to move on, we can fail this test, as a civilization.

    I'm thinking no one here even knows what they're talking about because the Green Party had their own booth there. Furthermore Tulsi was scheduled to speak up until the week of, who knows what happened. If people from all corners of America are traveling to see Bernie, Tulsi, Nina, TYT, Amy Goodman, Glenn Greenwald, Thomas Frank, Roseanne Demoro, Danny Glover, Jimmy Dore, Susan Sarandon, and COUNTLESS others, COVERED IN RED, roses abound, Socialists, Democratic Socialists, ALL independent media, People for Bernie, Progressive candidates for 2018, Veterans, Medicare for All, Tax the Wealthy, End the Wars, Truth in Media, Real News, Money out of politics, end super PACS, and hardly anyone wearing a suit..I call that a Progressive Summit. JACOBIN MAGAZINE HAD A BOOTH SELLING THE ABC's OF SOCIALISM BOOKS. Are you people crazy? Was I the only one there? Those reading articles and pushing this "they're establishment" narrative who didnt even attend can literally buzz off. I sat in lectures outlining exactly how the government has been bought and how the banks are ruining the world. I watched Bernie Sanders stop his speech several times because DRAFT BERNIE was being chanted by 5000 people in the audience. I listened to Bernie Sanders tell me that the DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS FAILED AND THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY IS PROGRESSIVE.
    You people need a reality check. Stop being so short sited and so impassioned that you can't think pragmatically and reasonably. This is ridiculous. Learn to read between the lines and think critically about things. Not everything is EVIL vs. US. Anyway I was there and I spoke to hundreds of people and I can assure everything the People's Summit was a Progressive gathering. If the Deep State funded it they did a horrible job because I left with a deepened invigorated passion to do my part to take back our corrupted government.
    Keep going Jimmy. You're doing great.

    Jimmy, I still think the People's Summit should have invited Jill Stein and Tulsi Gabbard. If they want to be "the" progressive summit, why should they exclude big name progressives like Jill and Tulsi? But it's good you and Jordan got to meet other progressives. A lot of us wanted to attend, but we don't have the funds to afford a trip to Chicago. Power to the people (especially the poorest of us).

    I think there is a reason today that progressives are not happy with anything. We have been robbed over and over by the DNC!! The DNC is a sham.

    The problem is voices that are opposed to working within the Dem Party, such as Jill Stein and Kshama Sawant weren't allowed to speak. You don't have to agree with them but they deserved an invitation. The Green Party was rudely rebuffed when they asked to speak. I wish it wasn't so. I'm very involved but I sat this one out.

    Understand Jimmy's point regarding if people are for certain "positions" but the problem is they can claim to be but not actually act with the power they have. If Newt said he was for free college tuition I would be skeptical. You? And Ro Khanna, I fear is pretty mainstream. He has got to prove he is not. Remember Liberals think they are progressive or Leftist.

    I and other Leftist probably think the Summit was a positive thing for sure. But do not criticize the "growing chorus who are not happy with anything", that skepticism of elites has been EARNED BY ELITES. The National Nurses United Labor group is bad ass and they actually do things on the ground. However, what we need is action not echo chamber summits, I understand getting folks together is a good start but not sufficient. Also problem of not showing up is Summit was expensive and or invite only. I do not think many working people could be at the summit

    Whoa, Jordan Chariton kicks off with an insult to the 'progressive side'. And Jimmy Dore, you are leaning more and more the way of the Justice Democrats. YUCK. Please don't be another one of the sell-outs to slip between the cracks. You're already sounding like you're heading that way. :/

    Then why weren't Jill and Tulsi invited? Not good. The conference is a sheep-dogging event. The dem party wants the very-liberals there. Keep 'em in the party. That's the point. Period.

    You need to stop waging war on your own viewers, and so does TYT. You've fallen into the same trap that lost Hillary the election, ignoring progressives you disagree with instead of understanding them and talking to them.

    "Unless you think the nurses are working for Trump"

    "People who disagree with me don't even leave their homes."

    Guys, have some bloody respect. Establishment doesn't automatically equal Trump. To willfully misinterpret the point people are trying to make and yadda yaddaing about Trump yet again? That shows how out of touch you've become.

    I'm in favor of the People's Summit and Bernie. But how about trying to respect and level with people, that's the only way to change their mind. Merely laughing at them like some mainstream media hack does not win over anyone.

    holy shit, Jordan just trivialized everyone whom has a problem with him as people that never leave their couches, wow, couldn't be that Jordan insulted H.A. Goodman, Tim Black and Nico House.  It couldn't be that Jordan and Jimmy are carrying water for Cenk and the Justus Dems.  Fuck that straw man argument Jimmy, no one said you were Ro Khanna's cheerleader we said it was hypocritical of you to "play dumb to support your position" with your choice Jimmy to NOT cover the WikiLeaks emails from Ro Khanna's campaign to Podesta that showed corruption.  As you said Jimmy easy questions what did you know and when did you know it?  When did you know about those damning emails from Ro Khanna's campaign promising Podesta and the Establishment Dems 50 million dollars?  Any chance your going to answer your own easy questions Jimmy?

    So wait a Libertarian isn't to be trusted b abuse they're libertarian? Wow! I KNEW there was something I didn't like about that Cenk who was a Republican! Did you lot dismiss his opinions because he was a Republican? There are libertarians who can think. Were you guys dismissive of Keith Ellison? He's not anti war, certainly not when it comes to Syria.

    Of course not, they're Justice Democrats who are sitting on the DNC's Unity board. It's not about Progressivism, it's about drawing progressives back into the Democratic Party. It's a co-option. Talk to me about this "hopey- changey" coalition when the Democrats stop running interference very time a progressive is on the ticket. This whole conference was for optics, a pretense that the Democrats are changing. They're not!

    Great job as usual by Jordan and Jimmy. I'm glad they both made it to the People's Summit. The problem with the Summit wasn't that it was limited by the establishment. Thank goodness, for once it's not a corporate facade.

    The problem was the lack of depth and maturity to the awakening leftist movement. It's all moderate stuff. The proto-revolutionary forces stirring in the US have been deprived of their leadership, starved of intellectual diversity, and indeed, even had the very language of the left taken from them, and replaced with more synonyms for fascism. Without being able to talk about class warfare, monetary policy, control of enterprise, etc; then the Summit can only deliver the solutions that would resuscitate predatory capitalism, and put the necessary restraints in place to make us all tolerate the establishment again.

    I watch the whole spectrum of political opinions, and the confusion about the far left is understandable, especially when the less educated members are there simply because they trust nothing and no one. But the holdouts use the metric of Jill Stein because she represents a third party, and that conversation must be had. There must be parties outside the Democratic Party, even if deals are made for election strategy. The platforms must be debated, and the Republicans and Democrats share a narrative that everyone can see is fake, now. I believe that's the main thrust of the far left's argument about the Summit.

    I must agree with that argument, but I recognize that the summit still must be held, and that it's a very good sign. These people have to get to know each other. But in the long run, this should evolve to either include political parties, or political parties should hold their own summit in competition or cooperation with the People's Summit, depending on how the Nurse's Union decides to go. But I wasn't surprised that they didn't invite Jill Stein. Bernie Sanders treats her like she doesn't exist, as well.

    Love you Jimmy but Chariton I could do without and I'm not sitting at home blogging all day. Was curbing our military industrial complex a top talking point at the summit? As a long-term GREEN I'll support the Draft Bernie Party or another 3rd but not drinking the Justice or Progressive Dem Kool Aid.
