The serial grifter’s last gambit has met a resounding defeat with a unanimous ruling by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, which decreed that a so-called special master cannot upend American rule of law and pick and choose what the DOJ gets to examine in the disgraced ex-president’s disastrous stolen doc scandal.

Right-wing billionaires are destroying America’s newsrooms

Courier Newsroom: With our small-town newsrooms being turned into Trump’s propaganda outlets by Sinclair Broadcasting, it’s harder than ever to find factual, value-based news coverage at the local level. Courier Newsroom is leading the fight against right-wing misinformation and conspiracies by building the largest left-leaning local news network in the country. Can you chip in to help keep our democracy healthy and put a stop to Trump’s dangerous conspiracies?

Putting “profits over people,” Senate rejects paid sick leave for rail workers
It was clear from the beginning of the negotiations that the railway companies were counting on Congress to bail them out of having to give sick leave to their workers, and legislators in DC dutifully obliged by separating sick leave from the bill enforcing a contract on the railway unions into a standalone bill. Worse, it gave certain Republicans a chance to pretend to care about workers by voting for legislation they knew would never get the 60 votes to pass. A disgraceful day for our government, which is utterly unwilling to do anything that might threaten the bottom lines of corporate America.

“I like Hitler”: Kanye West praises Nazi during shocking Alex Jones interview
An obviously very mentally ill Ye (formerly Kanye West), encased in a gimp mask and what appeared to be no less than fifteen coats, stunned the likes of Alex Jones and the rapper’s new sidekick, white supremacist Nick Fuentes, with a full-throated endorsement of Adolf Hitler and Nazis in general. While his vitriolic antisemitism is truly abhorrent to witness, it is painfully clear this man is in the throes of some kind of psychotic breakdown and should be getting treatment, not paraded around on conspiracy webshows by hatemongering opportunists.

President Biden calls for South Carolina to replace Iowa as first primary state in the nation
The president has kicked off the long-overdue process of moving the first Democratic contests out of heavily white Iowa and New Hampshire, desiring to give Black voters more of a voice in the all-important first primary.

Men who used robocalls to suppress Black votes ordered by judge to register new voters

Perennially unsuccessful right-wing con artist Jacob Wohl, whose harebrained exploits include accusing Sen. Elizabeth Warren of having an affair with a Marine and bringing fake rape charges against Robert Mueller and Pete Buttigieg, has been sentenced to 500 hours of registering new voters as punishment for using racist robocalls to try and depress the Black vote in the 2020 election.

Indiana’s attorney general files complaint against doctor who gave 10-year-old an abortion
Furious that they were unable to force a ten-year-old child to bear her rapist’s baby, the state of Indiana is now seeking to punish the doctor who administered her abortion. Attorney General Todd Rokita is demanding that the state’s medical licensing board administer disciplinary action, claiming that the doctor violated federal and state law relating to patient privacy and reporting child abuse.

Worker pleads guilty in election equipment tampering case
MAGA minion Sandra Brown has pleaded guilty to copying an election machine hard drive for Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters as they attempted to prove Donald Trump’s baseless claims that the 2020 election had been stolen. All said and done, the disgraced ex-president’s absurd conspiracies have created far more crimes than they’ve unearthed — which, again, is zero.

Hospice care quickly becoming a for-profit hustle
In a truly horrifying glimpse of the degeneracy of American capitalism, selling hospice care to elderly people who are not dying is becoming a growing, widly profitable business. For-profit companies are actually sending out sharks to target lonely, ill, uneducated, or just out-of-it seniors and persuading them to forgo curative care and move into hospice centers where hospice companies can leech off the fetid teat of for-profit insurance. It is a ghoulish, apparently legal business practice that truly makes you wonder how these miserable scumbags sleep at night.

Alabama police arrest 82-year-old woman for failing to pay trash fees
Welcome to modern policing, which is harassing old ladies and dragging them downtown in cuffs over…$77 in unpaid trash fees. One has to wonder how much all the police overtime that went into apprehending this dangerous criminal cost an Alabama town that definitely does not have the money to waste.

World Cupdate: Europe humbled edition


Today’s Action: Youth phone bank for Sen. Raphael Warnock!

We owe our historic midterm Senate hold to the youth vote. So many young people got out the vote this year, in fact, that it was the second highest youth vote in thirty years. It made Republicans so mad that some of them even started pushing to raise the voting age, so yeah— they’re a big deal. We need as many progressives in office as possible to preserve the rights we’ve been fighting so hard for —  reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform, etc. Young people are a hugely important piece of the puzzle.

That’s why it’s as important for young people to get involved in getting out the vote as they are in voting. Swing Left is hosting a youth-centered phone banking event TONIGHT from 6-8pm EST for the Georgia run-off. 

Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock will face the historically despicable Herschel Walker in the runoff NEXT WEEK. It’s no secret that one more seat in the Senate could mean the difference between advancing our progressive agenda or watching Joe Manchin obstruct and disrupt any further progress over the next two years, so reach out to the young progressives in your life and tell them to join the call. They don’t have to be a seasoned professional or a registered voter in Georgia to join this fight — they just need to be ready to channel the late, great John Lewis and stir up some “good trouble.”


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
