*A SIMPLE BUT DIRECT QUESTION? Do you have the GUTS forward LBN to your friends, family and associates? Do you? Do you?
Jill Stein, the Green Party’s presidential candidate, is reaching out to Bernie Sanders in an unusual way. In an interviewFriday with The Guardian, Stein said the democratic socialist should replace her at the top of the party’s ticket. Claiming an “overwhelming” number of former Sanders voters are finding a new home in the Green Party, Stein says “everything is on the table” for potential collaboration. “If he saw that you can’t have a revolutionary campaign in a counter-revolutionary party, he’d be welcomed to the Green Party,” Stein said. “He could lead the ticket and build a political movement.” After reaching out to Sanders via email at the end of the primary, Stein has not yet received a response. Her push comes as Sanders is rumored to be offering his endorsement of Hillary Clinton next week on the campaign trail.
*LBN-BUSINESS INSIDER: ***On Friday, Facebook said it would also begin testing “secret conversations” inside Messenger, a feature that offers end-to-end encryption on some messages to be read only on the two mobile devices that users are communicating with. While it stops short of the full encryption that other messaging services like WhatsApp have adopted, it gives Messenger a heightened mode of security that Facebook hopes will attract global audiences to download the app.“The fact that we have 1.65 billion people on Facebook already makes Messenger the best live, self-updating address book in the world,” Mr. Marcus said in an interview. “Because of the scale of our network, I feel like we really have a shot at this.”

*LBN- THIS DAY IN HISTORY:
Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans Exhibition Opens (1962)
One of the most influential artists of the late 20th century, Warhol began painting in the late 1950s and received sudden notoriety in 1962, when he exhibited 32 silkscreened paintings of Campbell’s soup cans in a California art gallery. The blatantly mundane content of the exhibition ran contrary to the abstract expressionist aesthetic of the time and generated much controversy, establishing Warhol as the leading exponent of the pop art movement.

*LBN-WHERE THE ELITE AND UNDERDOGS MEET:
*LBN-COMMENTARY by Tony Medley: LBN claims that “it’s now widely believed Mary Surratt was not a party to the Lincoln Assassination plans.” Believed by whom? It tries common sense to think that all the conspirators could meet at her boarding house with her son so many times without her knowing that something was going on. Further, the entire Surratt family was well known as Confederate sympathizers. Son John was a courier for the Confederate Secret Service, moving messages, cash, and contraband back and forth across enemy lines. The evidence produced at her trial showed that on April 11, just three days before the assassination, Mary Surratt rented a carriage and drove to the Surratt tavern in Surrattsville, Maryland (now known as Clinton). Her tenant, John Lloyd, said Surratt told him to get the “shooting irons” (rifles two of the conspirators had hidden at the Surratt Tavern) ready to be picked up.
