Ban militant white supremacists from serving in our police departments and armed forces!


Last night, Memphis authorities released video of five police officers beating Tyre Nichols to death after a traffic stop. By all accounts, the video is as horrific as it sounds. The video can be found in this AP article, but we, at atAdvocacy, have chosen not to watch the video ourselves. We have shed tears for Tyre and his family. We know that Tyre is far from the first Black man to be murdered by police in America, and we are devastated by the undeniable fact that he will not be the last. We do not need to watch cops brutally beat anyone to know that the state of policing in America is an abomination that must be addressed urgently and comprehensively. Today, we will honor Tyre by remembering not how he died but how he lived — a father, a husband, a 29 year-old baby brother, a hugger who loved his mom, a 49ers fan with a bright smile. We will honor Tyre by ensuring he is not forgotten and by working to end the disgrace of police brutality in America.

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Marjorie Taylor Greene humiliated on the House floor

The most powerful woman in the new House majority… sorry, just threw up a little… took to the House Floor to attack Joe Biden for lowering gas prices. Yes, for lowering gas prices. Somehow, it did not go well for her.

Paul Pelosi attack video released, debunking right wing conspiracies
Every right wing nut from Sean Hannity to Elon Musk has amplified deranged conspiracy theories that Pelosi was targeted by someone with whom he had a prior relationship, not a Republican radicalized by right wing propaganda looking to harm his wife, Nancy. Of course, the video confirms what was always obvious: The attacker was a MAGA lunatic wanting to harm the Democratic Speaker, and Hannity, Musk, and their ilk are pure trash. We’re not watching this one either.

The real Speaker of the House: Matt Gaetz

OD Action Partner: The worst of the worst holds the real power in Congress — but we can end this circus if we win back the majority!

DirecTV drops second ultra-MAGA right wing news network
Newsmax enjoyed a brief spike in viewers when many Republicans ditched Fox News in the final months of 2020 for the crime of correctly declaring Joe Biden the winner of the election, but two years later they will now follow One America News Network into the graveyard of MAGA news outlets unable to survive on TV in a post-Trump world.

Take Action: Kick Fox News off the air for inciting violence against the government!

Insurrectionist who attacked Officer Sicknick sentenced to nearly seven years
The MAGA foot soldier tried to violently overthrow the government at the not so subtle direction of Donald Trump, attacking multiple police officers in the process — one of whom, Brian Sicknick died. Now, he’ll have some time to reassess his patriotism behind bars. No word on the fate of the man who orchestrated the attack, currently running for president from a Florida resort where he until recently housed stolen nuclear secrets.

DOJ move signals criminal investigation of George Santos is imminent

The Department of Justice has asked the Federal Election Commission to stand down in its investigation into 2-time Oscar winner and Post-It Notes inventor George Santos, a request that almost always suggests that the DOJ is preparing to launch their own, much more consequential criminal probe. Good thing for Santos he has law degrees from three Ivy League universities. He’s going to need them!

Take Action: Expel George Santos!

GOP condemns Kanye, Milo Yiannopoulos, Nick Fuentes — but there’s a catch
Just when you think Republicans are about to do something uncharacteristically good — laudable even — they can’t get to the end of the first sentence without tripping on their own tails and reminding everyone how galaxy brained they can be. So it was when they used a moment to acknowledge the vile antisemitism of three notorious Republican anti-semites to — you’re not going to believe this — attack Democrats.

Take Action: Tell Biden to not let the GOP hold our country hostage with the debt ceiling!

House Republicans finally reveal HORRIFIC demands

No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen: Disgusting

Baker who refused to make cake for gay wedding suffers major legal setback
Jack Phillips took his professed Christian-based right to discriminate against same sex couples all the way to the Supreme Court in 2017, prevailing on a technicality. Now, his second conviction for violating state discrimination laws — this time for refusing to bake a pink cake with blue frosting for a transgender woman who wanted to celebrate the anniversary of her transition — has been upheld by an appeals court. For anyone who isn’t a biblical scholar, Jesus hated cake with pink and blue but loooooooooved discrimination.

Palestinian gunman kills 7 outside Jerusalem synagogue a day after deadly Israeli raid
The attack came a day after an Israeli military raid killed nine Palestinians in the West Bank, marking an alarming escalation in violence as the most right-wing government in Israeli history takes power.

House GOP passes bill to stop Biden from using oil reserves to lower gas prices
Yeah — you read that right. The Republican-controlled congress passed a bill that would block President Biden from lowering gas prices by tapping the strategic oil reserve unless he matched every gallon released from the reserve with corresponding increases in domestic oil and gas production on federal lands. There’s zero chance of this bill becoming law, but it’s a perfect and only the most recent illustration of Republicans attacking the American people to score partisan political points.

DEA’s top Mexico officer ousted over suspicious links to cartel lawyers
The Drug Enforcement Administration quietly fired Nicholas Palmeri, its chief agent in Mexico, last year over his relationships with known narcotrafficker lawyers based in Miami, with whom he socialized and took lavish vacations.
